Weekend after Prom - locked

Who: Greg and Krista and Greg and Alric
What: Congratulations and possibly hanging out.
Where: Krista's room for the Krista thread, Alric's room for the Alric thread
When: Weekend after Prom
Warnings: bad puns! Warning, anyone reading this will be pun-ished. You have been warned.


For both:

Prom was over, elections were over, and Greg... was tired of sulking in his couch fort. So... he had some stops to make. He wanted to say congratulations to the winners that he was friendly with, and he and Krista had plans, to boot. Well, to rock, mostly. He pulled on a comfy old band tee, his fringed coat because he liked it, and his dark pants because they made him look good. Usually one used glasses for that...

Then he grabbed his acoustic guitar, the old one his father gave him, and his walking stick. He shook out his head, which was sufficient for taking care of his hair, then headed out.

For Alric:
Greg headed to the other boy' room, took a deep breath, then knocked lightly on the door, a bright smile in place. He was the son of a great actor. Besides, it was easier to smile.

For Krista:
He made his way to her room, guitar slung over his back. He used the top of his walking stick to rap a lovely little tune on her door, and this time actually remembered to use white fire first, so that he could stand.

Alric answered in relatively short order with the customary polite smile and affable nod in greeting.

"Ahh, Mr. Deegan, good evening. To what do I owe the honor?"
knighterrantofthedragon: Alric smiling slightly, head tilted (tilted smile)

[personal profile] knighterrantofthedragon 2015-05-12 03:08 pm (UTC)(link)
"...ah. Most appreciated."

Alric smiled, a little quizzically, but shook Greg's hand firmly.

"Although I'm sure the scarcity of serious competition was my greatest advantage by far."
knighterrantofthedragon: Alric amused (amused)

[personal profile] knighterrantofthedragon 2015-05-13 07:17 am (UTC)(link)
"Mm, well, I appreciate your confidence. But no, not overwhelmingly busy; not yet, at least."
knighterrantofthedragon: Alric smiling slightly, head tilted (tilted smile)

[personal profile] knighterrantofthedragon 2015-05-13 10:10 pm (UTC)(link)
Alric smiled quizzically to himself at that question.

"I'd imagine a celebration calls more for one of the latter two, although I'm not certain precisely what you've got in mind."
knighterrantofthedragon: Alric amused (amused)

[personal profile] knighterrantofthedragon 2015-05-15 11:57 am (UTC)(link)
Alric chuckled at that.

"Ahh, I see. Well, if you've any preference, then, I suppose that would suffice. You are, after all, the one insisting upon my celebration."
knighterrantofthedragon: Alric smiling slightly, head tilted (tilted smile)

[personal profile] knighterrantofthedragon 2015-05-19 03:18 pm (UTC)(link)
"...it does seem a touch self-indulgent to celebrate my victory against no particular competition. But I suppose I'm not adverse to doing something. I certainly wouldn't wish to seem ungrateful, either."
knighterrantofthedragon: Alric smiling pensively (Pensive smile)

[personal profile] knighterrantofthedragon 2015-05-21 03:48 pm (UTC)(link)
Alric would have disputed that point--Greg had an actual campaigning opponent, after all, and it was said to be a quite close contest. However, he didn't press the issue.

"...still. I suppose a small celebration with a friend wouldn't be amiss."
knighterrantofthedragon: Alric smiling slightly, head tilted (tilted smile)

[personal profile] knighterrantofthedragon 2015-05-27 11:14 am (UTC)(link)
Alric raised an eyebrow at that.

"...mm. Well. Is there a traditional celebration for this sort of situation? I'm fairly certain the sort of party I'm used to wouldn't be particularly to your tastes. Or arranged on short order."
knighterrantofthedragon: Alric amused (amused)

[personal profile] knighterrantofthedragon 2015-06-02 08:03 am (UTC)(link)
Alric chuckled at that.

"I might be, but I confess I have the feeling, at least, that you'd find it... stuffy, in a word. However, yes, something simpler would perhaps be best."
knighterrantofthedragon: Alric smiling slightly, head tilted (tilted smile)

[personal profile] knighterrantofthedragon 2015-06-06 02:35 pm (UTC)(link)
He raised an eyebrow, tilting his head slightly, as though to indicate this was getting to really be more in Greg's territory.

"So. What does one do, then, in America, for such a simple celebration between friends?"
knighterrantofthedragon: Alric amused (amused)

[personal profile] knighterrantofthedragon 2015-06-15 11:35 am (UTC)(link)
"Well, you are without a doubt better adapted than I. That much, I've seen, myself. Still, that's quite besides the point--but, I suppose a meal, perhaps, dining out..?"
knighterrantofthedragon: Alric smiling slightly, head tilted (tilted smile)

[personal profile] knighterrantofthedragon 2015-06-20 03:41 am (UTC)(link)
"...I confess, I'm not certain 'blending in' is the expression I would have chosen, in your place. But perhaps that is precisely why you find it easy to acclimate to America. Does the culture not assert that it acknowledges few honors greater than that of not blending in?"

...never mind what it actually does, of course. That's quite another story.
knighterrantofthedragon: Alric amused (amused)

[personal profile] knighterrantofthedragon 2015-06-24 08:35 pm (UTC)(link)
Alric chuckled at that.

"...I can only imagine it would be difficult not to, although I suppose there is always a way. Still. Where to, then?"
