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!

Kathy was cheering and waving flags on the side of the road and cheering for all her loved ones in the parade. Eliot had done her hair in embroidery floss hair wraps last night, complete with little dangling pi beads and hearts with infinity symbols and she jingled as she bounced and cheered.

[gone for most of the weekend, may have tiny phone nets.]

"Hey, look who's getting into it," Dante called from the march, grinning at her.

"Those who can't march, cheer," Kathy said, blowing him a kiss and laughing.

Dante wiggled his eyebrows at her. "Next time maybe Anders'll show up and we'll give you a show," he called.

"Maybe later?" Kathy asked with a wink. "I'm always up for a good time."

"Later what?" Anders asked, lifting fingers from his water bottle in an abbreviated wave as he wandered over. "Dante, are you making scandalous plans without me?"

He just hoped they were scandalous.
rebelseekspizza: (dante pb - white hair yeah?)

Dante blinked. Then he snickered, grinning. "Ah, you were snoozing, so you were losing," he said. "Had regrets?"

"Glad you showed up," Kathy said, giving him a smile. "We were thinking about meeting up when you two are done marching."

"I know I don't have plans," Anders told her cheerfully. "And you're sure you don't want to walk with us? Though I guess it isn't much of a parade without an audience."

"Eh, I was thinking it's more fun if we give her a show first," Dante said, winking at Anders.

"My only claim to Pride is being poly and that doesn't necessarily count," Kathy said at the same time. "Wait no," she amended. "What Dante said. Go with that one."

Anders blinked amiably at her. It was his the whole idea of marching about who sleeps with who is silly but you seem to know more about these things than I do kind of Fereldan blink.

"All right then," he said. "Then I suppose we'll see you after the parade."

Dante laughed softly at the look on Anders' face, reaching out to slide an arm around his waist, tugging him closer.

Kathy also laughed, stepping off the sidewalk for a moment to offer kisses to first one and then the other. "Next year," she promised. "If we do this again next year, I'll march."
not_every_mage: ([♥] kissing!)

"You had better," Anders told her, cheerfully accepting her kiss.

And then he leaned into Dante for a firmer one, just because.

After accepting Kathy's kiss with a grin, Dante slid his fingers into Anders' hair and kissed him back.

More than firmly. Tongue was definitely involved.

Hey, he'd promised Kathy a show.

"Hnnngh," Kathy said, biting down on her lower lip. That was pretty right there. Real pretty. "So, what are your post-parade plans?"

Cause she had an idea or three. They didn't involve the park, however.

"I was thinking about private pride celebration," Anders put in, still pressed tight against Dante. "Small. Very intimate. Only three attendees."
rebelseekspizza: (dante pb: white hair oof)

"Strict dresscode too," Dante said, nodding seriously. "Extra-casual."

"Sounds like a party right up my alley," Kathy said with a straight face. "I can provide something to eat if you want refreshments."

Sure, she meant the obvious joke, but she was also thinking of picking up some pizzas or something so they didn't have to interrupt their quiet evening for anything.

"I seem to get hungry every time I hang out with both of you," Anders said, with eyes that were full of a rather different kind of hunger. "Your place, then?"
rebelseekspizza: (dante pb: eyyy)

Dante's fingers drifted idly along the back of Anders' pants. "Could just bail now too," he mused. "This thing's almost over."

"Don't you wanna keep enjoying Pride?" Kathy teased. "You don't wanna miss out on all that quality walking do you?"

She looked like she could be amenable to convincing.

"I feel plenty proud," Anders nodded. "I think the island will survive if we don't walk all over it to prove it."

"I dunno, I got a whole lot of shit for it to be proud about," Dante mused, smirking merrily. "But hey, if you can't have a good threeway screw at Pride..."
