spin_kick_snap: (Work Out Hair)
[personal profile] spin_kick_snap
Kathy was prepping for Pride over the weekend. Most of the merchandise she was planning for the booth had already been boxed up at the store, but she was folding pamphlets and making bracelets out of embroidery floss and beads that she'd picked up from Hobby Lobby when she'd taken a trip over there to discuss which store was going to hand out the birth control. The bracelets all corresponded with the various Pride flags; it was like an eighth grade craft project up in here.

But it was fun and relaxing and made for nice breaks between constant pamphlet folding while still letting her feel like she was being productive. Win/win.

It'd been a little while since they'd gotten in any quality father/daughter type time, so after Eliot swung by the diner to check up on things, he headed up the stairs with some sandwiches. He knocked on the door; lord only knew what 20-ish year old women got up to when they weren't expecting anyone stopping by. And, you know, it was only polite and all.

If Eliot couldn't hear exactly what song it was through the front door before he opened it, it wasn't too loud. Let's be real.

He came in and held up the bag with the sandwiches. "Brought you some lunch. You taking up embroidery over there?"

There were worse ways to spend your time. Maybe she'd decided to get her pain in through stabbing herself in the finger repeatedly with a needle.

OF COURSE NOT THAT'D BE RIDICULOUS.

"Even got me a silly hat for it," Eliot said. He grabbed a seat and took the finished bracelet. "Just usin' a basic forward knot, huh. Nice job keepin' 'em even. What flag's this one for?"

Eliot nodded. "Nice. Got your work cut out for ya, if you're plannin' on makin' a lot of 'em, though." He set the ace bracelet down and looked over the various supplies she had. "Take it you're not just stickin' to a basic stripe pattern, neither. Gonna try a beaded wrap next? Maybe embellished chevrons?"

He wasn't totally up on his pride flag patterns, but somehow he absolutely knew all sorts of friendship bracelet styles.

Eliot wasn't sure where he'd lost her. She was making friendship bracelets. He was just talking about friendship bracelets. "But what patterns are you gonna use?"

"Like . . . patterns." Eliot held up one of the finished bracelets. "Like this is a stripe pattern. But you could also do, like, hearts or zig zags or -- seriously, this is the only kind you know about?"

Poor, uneducated Kathy. Your whole world was about to open up.

Eliot was about to ask 'what about the ones your friends made you?', then remembered that she'd always claimed she didn't have any friends, before Fandom.

"Alright, I'll show you," he said instead. "What's the next set of colors you were gonna work on?"

Eliot nodded, and quickly measured and cut two sets of the strands. "You got the basic knot down cold, no problem. With your stripes, you work from one side to the other, right? Left to right or right to left. With a chevron, you're workin' outside to inside, like this." He propped his knee up on the coffee table and taped the tied threads to his jeans as an anchor, and quickly ran through rows with all three colors. "Double knot on the left side, double knot on the right, then the next one in on the left, next one in on the right, and so on. When you've got your strings next to each other in the middle, you tie the first half of your double knot with the one on the left, then the other with the one on the right, like this, so there's only one double knot in the center." He brought his knee up and towards her a little so she could get a good look. "And they form a nice little point. A chevron."

Eliot could even turn a conversation about friendship bracelets into a teaching moment, yes.

Eliot shrugged and kept working the strings. "Dated a camp counselor." He smirked. "I can do hair wraps and braids, too."

Eliot paused mid-hitch. "'Dite's is doin' -- you're doing a sex booth for Pride?"

Oh hey, new benefit of the father/daughter dynamic, Kathy could now make Eliot blush and stammer over her sex life, instead of the other way around.

"Wasn't arguin' that -- I mean of course you --" Kathy should be filming this. "You want me to work at your sex booth?!"

Eliot was going to end up turning purple by the end of this conversation. "I mean -- if you need me to do it, I can totally . . . you sure?"

He would be sitting right there. While she talked about sex.

"Screwed up the pattern on this bracelet, too," Eliot grumbled. He took a deep breath and ran a hand through his hair. "Of course I'll help you with your booth. Wouldn't miss it."

He'd just probably end up sputtering at least a few times while he was there.
