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!

Parker's outfit was... a lot. A lot a lot. But hey, Pride was something she could feel like a part of, and that was a good enough reason to dress up.

Plus sunblock, because she was a pale milk-colored person.

"I brought a water bottle," she told Eliot. "You can borrow mine if you need to stay hydrated."

That was cute, Parker, really. "I got my own, darlin'. But I appreciate it. You can help me convince our boy there that he has to drink water and not just soda."

He reached up and gave one of the feathers a gentle tug. "You're gonna put us all to shame out here."

"Well, we're proud. And we're loud." Parker knew that some people would think she didn't count as being part of Pride, but she was living with two guys who definitely did, and she loved them, and anyway the whole thing was the kind of topic that just needed more people in a parade, she felt. "And we're not falling over from the heat, at least not if the two of us are watching Hardison for heat stroke and stuff."

"If he fusses we'll just have to tackle him to the ground and drag him into one of the houses along the route."

Parker's cackle there was definitely evil, matching Eliot's smirk.

"Until he recovers! And stuff."

"We'll probably have to sit on him. To make sure he stays put and recovers properly."

Hardison was doomed.

So, so, so doomed.

"Yup. Good thing we're looking out for him." She gave Eliot another grin. "I think we should do a check before the parade. Just to be sure."

That might make them miss the parade, though.

"I dunno," Eliot said. "You think we have enough time?"

Parker started to nod, but then the headdress made her sway. "Whoaaa. Okay. Um. Maybe not." They would have to get re-dressed or something afterward, wouldn't they? "But when he starts looking dehydrated, we take a break!"

Eliot reached out to steady her if she needed it. "Sounds like a plan, mastermind."
