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!

Tip had found herself a perch on a street light along the parade route, from which she was hollering and cheering.

She had no idea yet how she identified. But she was more than happy to cheer on those who'd worked it out.

"Thsnks!" Summer pulled out the flare part, looking down for a second to admire all the pretty colors thrn shrugged a bit. "I know it's a little tame for Pride, but it seems to fit the smaller nature of this ine. Plus, technically, it's kinda my first one? So, yeah, no need to go iverboard."

"I like it," Tip confirmed. "I've never been to Pride before, either. They're only just getting big again back home. I was thinking of wearing something special too, but . . . I don't really know, you know, how I want to identify yet? So I figured I'd just come and yell and cheer and figure out accessorizing later."

"That's okau," said Summer. "Some prole don't figure it out for a while. I mean, I've only had boyfriends, myself, but I've still got college. Plus, you know, the whole multiverse , so who knows? Maybe I'll one day find a nice Gazorpian to settle down with, but probably not, because their society is kinda jacked up."

Tip laughed. "Yeah, I'm probably not going to end up with a Boov," she said. "But they're sort of culturally aro anyway, so. Other than that, who knows?"

"What are they like, anyway, the Boov? You said your friend J. Lo is one, right? I wonder if we gave anything like thrm where I'm from? I mean, we have practically everything, so I'd be a little surprised if we didnt."

"That'd be cool. Though I hope you don't have any Gorg. They're a bunch of dicks." Tip pulled out her phone and scrolled through her photo app until she found
