SUMMARY: That big decorating open log. Meg wrote this.,..
FORMAT: Quick!

When Thor and Bob landed on the mansion's lawn, they were carrying a massive tree between them. Getting it from the hills north of the city to Manhattan had been easy; getting it through the door presented a problem. Nonetheless, after nearly half an hour of negotiating the furniture, yelling back and forth about which way it ought to be turned, and the unfortunate sacrifice of a vase, there was a Christmas tree in Avengers Mansion.

[Meanwhile, Hank was bouncing along the walls, trying to get all this tinsel hung!]

We skipping to that one already?

Is there an order to it?
Dr. Henry Phillip McCoy: Well this is pleasant.bluepurrymuffin on December 6th, 2011 09:02 am (UTC)
[Hank hooks his feet to the ceiling and hangs down as he carefully tapers off his tinsel at the top of the tree.]

Well, of course! The star always goes on last, it's the proper tradition.

Why? I've never done it last before...
Dr. Henry Phillip McCoy: Let me ask you...bluepurrymuffin on December 6th, 2011 09:26 am (UTC)
Well, I suppose it's no tremendous oversight, it just seems to be a piece that calls for some ceremony. A finishing touch, if you will.

Perhaps to mirror the late arrival of the Bethlehem star it resembles.

Oh. [ He tilts his head. ] Lindy and I always raced to see who got the star first. I guess it's a habit.
Dr. Henry Phillip McCoy: Might I just add...bluepurrymuffin on December 7th, 2011 06:59 am (UTC)
Ah. Well, forgive me then. I certainly wouldn't want to discourage you from such a time-honored tradition!

[ Bob looks thoughtful, flying up to get it. ]

No, I shouldn't take it away from someone else.
Dr. Henry Phillip McCoy: What was I thinking?bluepurrymuffin on December 8th, 2011 04:40 pm (UTC)
[Hank flips around, supporting himself with one arm till he's upright, and holds out a hand.]

Don't worry, it's quite aright. I shouldn't have said anything, had I known. [He offers a smile.] Besides, you're the one most capable of reaching the top without issue, there's no reason it shouldn't be yours to place.

Are you sure? [ Hovers... ]
Dr. Henry Phillip McCoy: Just wait till I unleash my master plan!bluepurrymuffin on December 9th, 2011 08:46 am (UTC)
[He grins and transfers over to the wall.]

Well, you already won the race, didn't you?

[ Smiles. He goes up to replace the star. ]

And the tree is big enough to leave something for everyone, I think.
Dr. Henry Phillip McCoy: I find myself brimming with thoughts.bluepurrymuffin on December 9th, 2011 03:29 pm (UTC)
[He scratches his chin thoughtfully before beginning to descend the wall.]

When you put it that way, I may just leave my part to be the tinsel. Leave room for other contributions, and fill in the blanks later after everyone's had the opportunity.

I guess you could do that. It's pretty big, there's enough for everyone.
Dr. Henry Phillip McCoy: Can't be overly concerned at the moment!bluepurrymuffin on December 11th, 2011 04:33 am (UTC)
Oh, certainly! Which allows everyone their pick of anything they have their heart set on, as you did the star and I did the tinsel. Once I know the dibs have been picked, I'll have room to take care of anything else required.
