Fandom Pride Picnic: The Park, Sunday Afternoon

Yesterday's rainbow was still going strong, the weather was still beautiful, and the flowers that had sprouted up for yesterday were still in full bloom, all reaching up toward that rainbow the way most flowers reached for the sun.

In the park, a veritable miniature carnival had sprung up, with a ball pit (stocked with balls in all colours of the rainbow, of course) and giant inflatable kraken slide for all to enjoy. There was also a stage for any entertainers who might want a spotlight this afternoon, and there were several booths, in case people wanted to set up to hand out informational pamphlets (in the spirit of Pride, naturally), or set up a kissing booth for charity or any such thing they pleased.

Plus, food. Of course food. It would be a pretty sad picnic without that.

And so, the park was geared up for a party. Come one, come all!

Liam couldn't help the grin when he saw all the rainbow-themed foods. Made sense.

There was a pause as he spotted something in particular, though. "Edible glitter?" he murmured in surprise, eyeing it curiously.

Hannibal chuckled. "It seemed appropriate for both the island and the day. Hello." He held out his hand. "I don't believe we've met. Doctor Hannibal Lecter."

Liam was still new enough that he'd yet to find out just how pervasive glitter was on the island in general, but he would. Oh, he would.

"Maj-" he stopped, rolled his eyes at himself slightly, and continued as he shook Hannibal's hand. "Liam Kincaid. I'm still pretty new, so just getting to know faces and names."
sharp_man: (oh? yes?)

"In that case, welcome to Fandom," Hannibal said. "You're former military, then?"
firstofitskind: (paying attention)

"I was a Companion-Protector," Liam said. "And that's one of the things I have figured out about this place," he added with a small smile, "that no one here actually knows what that means."

"Not at all, I'm afraid," Hannibal said with a smile. "May I ask what it is?"

"An alien race called the Taelons arrived on my Earth almost ten years ago," Liam explained. "They came to be known as the Companions. I was... head of security for Da'an, the North American Companion."
sharp_man: (sympathetic)

"So, they got along well enough with humans to have protectors among them, and not so well that they didn't need them," Hannibal surmised.
firstofitskind: (serious)

"Essentially," Liam nodded. He wasn't going to get in to the complexities of the Motivational Imperative. "I mean, when have you known all of humanity to agree on something?" If Hannibal was from some sort of reality where everyone got along all of the time, well. Liam was going to be incredibly surprised.

"I suspect that will only come when the species is extinct bar one person," Hannibal said. "And possibly not then. So what brings you to Fandom, then?"
firstofitskind: (serious)

"The Taelons are- gone," Liam explained. "So I was looking for a change of pace, while Fandom, apparently, was in need of a sheriff."

"Ah - so you are our new law enforcement, then?" Hannibal chuckled. "That must be simultaneously the easiest and most stressful posting of its type."
firstofitskind: (ummm)

"That about sums it up," Liam said. "So far it's a lot of paperwork. Because a lot of stuff happens here, it looks like... but very little of the Trooper Station's duties have ever actually involved actually arresting anyone."

"That sounds very like Fandom," Hannibal said. "We have very little standard crime here, but quite a lot of other things."
firstofitskind: (ummm)

"That is what people keep telling me," Liam said. "That it's long periods of small-town quiet interspersed with brief periods of what-the-hell-is-happening. Must keep everyone on their toes pretty well."
sharp_man: (casual - skeptical)

"It is good for that, yes," Hannibal said. "If the past few years are any indication, you'll have very few arrests, but the occasional invasion of powerful forces."
