Fandom Pride Parade: Saturday Afternoon

The day started with a rainbow. Not that there had been any rain last night, really. The island, noticing the handwavy posters up around town, had figured it wanted to contribute to the spirit of the whole thing, and slapping a big, bright rainbow into the sky had seemed like the obvious way to do it. By around noon, it was clear that the rainbow was going to be sticking around, too, less a meteorological phenominon and more a banner painted across the sky. Down below, little flowers had popped up overnight in bright colours, some mimicking the rainbow up above, some in other configurations; pink-purple-blue, blue-pink-white-pink-blue, black-grey-white-purple, yellow-white-purple-black, and so on. The flowers, fortunately, were there to be pretty, with no other weird effects on the island's populace.

Though, really, if presenting a bouquet of them to one's favourite person ended well for somebody, the island wasn't going to complain, either.

The parade itself was to start on the Causeway, a good gathering point for Fandomites in the past, and a fairly central location on the island. From there it would follow Griffin Lane to Galactica Drive, Serendipity Place, Godiva Street, back onto Serendipity and following it until it turned into Loon and Loon turned into Chimera. Then one final turn onto Apocalypse before ending up at the Park, where people were welcome to sit and mingle to their hearts' content.

The weather was nice, making liars out of the meteorologists in favour of shunting clouds aside for sunshine and a pleasant breeze. A perfect day for a parade!

Leto was going to block Sparkle's nice view of the sky and the rainbow, because he was a brat.

"So, I'm going to guess that you enjoyed the parade," he said, grinning.

"Are rainbows like glitter, then?"

Leto laughed and wrapped his arms around Sparkle, leaning in to give him a kiss.

"There are no rainbows on Arrakis," Leto said, "And I was considering suggesting we should compensate with glitter, but that would be a bad idea."

He leaned in to give Sparkle another quick kiss. This was a day for kisses, wasn't it?

"Exactly," Leto replied, letting Sparkle imagine the consequences. "You see my point?"

It really was selfish of him to abandon his duties and leave Ghanima to deal with them all on her own. Just standing here with his arms wrapped around Sparkle reminded him of that.

"So, do I have more celebration to look forward to that isn't a parade? I heard there was going to be a picnic tomorrow."

Rainbow jello shots? Leto wasn't sure any of his ancestors had tried those. He hadn't anyway.

"And rainbows everywhere. What are your plans?" Sparkle was going to get another kiss before answering that.

"I was going to rely on your talent in surprising me," Leto said, then added: "You haven't?"

"Need some flowers to go with all the rest of it?" Peter asked, grinning and handing Sparkle a bouquet of rainbow roses.

Peter laughed. "Yeah, pretty sure these didn't grow this way," he eyed a clump of the island's contributions nearby, "but I had to get some. Do I say 'happy Pride'?"

Peter made a disgusted face. "They actually do that?" he asked, but he could easily believe it. "Sometimes I really despair of people." He shook his head. "Well anyway, happy Pride, then. And if anyone tries to give you grief, just send 'em my way."

Peter shrugged. "I learned a long time ago not to worry about what consenting adults get up to. You're good people, and anyone who can't see that deserves a punch to the face."
2_old_for_this: (what?)

"That...would probably also work," Peter said, scrunching his face up. Might be a bit extreme, depending on how bad they were."

"Overprotective and dangerous?" Peter guessed.
