put on your red shoes and dance the blues  
WARNINGS: who can really tell? definitely some fights breaking out, prolly language, maybe sloppy makeouts, and lots and lots of DANCING
SUMMARY: There is a prom at the Xavier Institute and people are showing up at this prom.

Hank manned the door personally, welcoming each guest as they entered and accepting tickets from or selling them to the non-students. The DJ was playing, the atmosphere had adequate bounce, everything was arranged in a splendid medieval array, care of Angelica and her art class.

This would truly be A Knight To Remember.

[Hank had a moment away from the door, so he takes the opportunity to slide in next to her with a glass of champagne. He noticed the leg patting, and couldn't help wondering about that.

He offers her the glass and raises his own.
] You look uneasy, darling.

Well, I'm not really worried about kids getting drunk, you could say. If they're not gonna do it here, they'll do it at home.

Just, you put a bunch of superpowered people in one room? Crap tends to happen. Like magnetism - seems to attract it. Ever been to a superhero wedding that wasn't crashed?

[All the same, she puts an arm around him, giving him a quick kiss on the cheek.]

You look great, Hank.
Dr. Henry Phillip McCoy: Big smile!bluepurrymuffin on June 12th, 2011 01:43 am (UTC)
Not as great as you, Amanda!

[Though he certainly appreciates the sentiment. He'd searched far and wide for a blue velvet tuxedo he could have altered to fit him! And he's rather fond of the yellow shirt.]

But as to your point, I actually have been to a superhero wedding that was otherwise uneventful. At least two, in fact, considering Angelica and Pietro's just a few months ago!

I understand it can be a potentially dangerous situation, but we can at least enjoy ourselves in the meantime, yes?

[She takes the drink now. Maybe alcohol will help relax her natural instincts to check everybody as a potential threat.]

Man, lucky you. Way I've seen it go down, it's always kidnapping or demolishing the church or some other crap. They really need to start making it super-private, no cards or anything.

Mmm. I'll try.

[She sighs out pleasantly now. Hank has been good for her. Immensely good for her. Even if this night is supposed to be about chaperoning kids, Amanda feels she's probably going to make the time immediately afterwards into their own personal date.]

Does this whole thing make you feel as old as I do? Not in a bad way.
Dr. Henry Phillip McCoy: It's really quite simple.bluepurrymuffin on June 12th, 2011 02:34 am (UTC)
Oh, that does happen at times, yes, but we do get lucky every now and then.

[He takes a sip of his champagne and just holds her as he looks out at the children dancing.]

I suppose it does, yes. It was half a lifetime ago when I was in their shoes, after all. They have so much before them still...so much to hope for.

[And she holds him back. She's. Content. It really is quite nice, feeling that.]

You're really sweet, you know that?

You really care about their future.

[Squeezes him, just a bit. That kind of optimism is just what she needs.]

So what're you thinking for when prom is over?
Dr. Henry Phillip McCoy: What was I thinking?bluepurrymuffin on June 12th, 2011 03:18 am (UTC)
Well, there's still finals ahead of them, and two wee--Oh.

[Sorry Amanda, he can be dense at times.]

I was thinking of a bottle of wine, maybe a picnic on the roof. We could watch the stars for a while.

Maybe a dance to ourselves?

I'm not doing it out here with the kids or their awful music.

[Now just straight up rubbing his back.]

How long's it been now, anyway? Three months?
Dr. Henry Phillip McCoy: Most excellent! :3bluepurrymuffin on June 12th, 2011 03:58 am (UTC)
Yes, we'll have to have our own private waltz once the auditorium's clear.

[He's quiet a moment as he thinks back leaning against her just a little bit.]

Our first date was approximately three and a half months ago. He became official about a month after that.

Time flies. Before we know it, maybe we'll even make it to six.

[The porter did have a bad way of screwing with plans and romances. Best to live in the moment. She considers saying something... but finds that words are a bit lacking right now. Instead?

She just gives him another kiss, this time on the lips. If she's gonna be here, she might as well have fun.]
Dr. Henry Phillip McCoy: Hmm?bluepurrymuffin on June 13th, 2011 06:05 am (UTC)
[He returns the kiss and wraps his arms around her waist.]

I'd certainly like that. One can never tell with the situation we're in, though.
