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!

Just because the march was over, didn't mean Hannibal was sitting down. Instead, he was walking around to see if anybody wanted any more of his hand pies. (They were fruit and meat; none were made from actual hands, thank you very much. Wrong cannibal.)

Lucille wasn't going to stay long, but she wasn't leaving until she had spoken a few words with Dr Lecter. And, noticing the food, until she had tried the pies.

"Did you enjoy the parade?"

Hannibal smiled and offered her her choice of the pies. "I suppose I did," he said. "It wasn't any more than a stroll through town, but it represents much more for many people."

Lucille picked one and took a bite from it.

"Delicious, as usual. As you might guess there are no such parades where I am from."

"These are a fairly recent phenomenon," Hannibal said. "But then, it isn't illegal in many places these days."

"It is in my time, as you know," Lucille said. "But then many things are, there."

"And many things still are these days," Hannibal noted. Like his hobbies. "But it's good that fewer of them are."

"That is true."

Lucille assumed that the love she felt for her brother still was.

It was, yes. Not that Hannibal was judging, so long as they were consenting.

"So, we celebrate whatever it is we can."

"We do," Lucille agreed. "Perhaps even those things that we can't speak about."

"Especially those," Hannibal said with a smile.

Lucille smiled back. Neither of them needed to clarify what they meant, and that was a very rare experience.
