The Story:

from the bathroom, raymond appears, striking the most ridiculous of poses.

there is a rose in his teeth. that he speaks around, far too enthusiastically. nobody's saying that drool didn't happen...


Firff foice! 〈 blah better get that rose out: 〉 What do you think?

[Talking to Iris is usually interesting, even if Len isn't entirely sure how exactly they ended up here. Sitting on his bed, waiting for Ray to dazzle them.

There's a reason he has a bottle at the ready.]


Think it'd be more dramatic if that rose had thorns.

[This whole outfit might be less painful to look at if it was more painful for Ray.]

Want some?

[This was definitely the cue for him to hold the bottle mentioned above out to Iris.]

Might be here a while.
demonstrate: (skeptic.)

[ iris had been ready to shake her head at len's offer.

then ray stepped out of the bathroom and her fingers wrap around the neck of the bottle. she gives len a glance that perfectly conveys this is going to take a while, yes. in turn, she lifts the tub of popcorn she procured from the closet to offer len. (she believes in quid pro quo.)

ok give her a second to take a sip. mmm.
]

So. [ ukw she's just going to come right out and say it. ] What's with the hat?
catchacold: :) (thawing)

[personal profile] catchacold 2016-10-10 12:09 am (UTC)(link)
Len has taken a handful of popcorn, chewed it, swallowed it and, yeah, he will be reaching to get that bottle back. Thanks, Iris. They need this.]

Moving room.

[Just going to repeat that.]

True. You got enough room in those for you and your ego.
demonstrate: (doubting.)

[personal profile] demonstrate 2016-10-10 12:14 am (UTC)(link)
[ iris relinquishes the hold she'd been keeping on the bottle, and tips her head to the side.

the fashionista inside of her is dying a little.
]

Moving room ... is important if you're going dancing, but Ray, that hat has got to go.

[ she looks to len for back-up. please be with her on this one. ray, love yourself. ]
catchacold: :| (forecast)

The hat deserves better.

[So fragile. Leonard does roll his eyes at that, mostly because he's not very interested in saving Ray's precious feelings.

Not everyone can look good in a hat, that's just a fact of life.]


You got good hair. Don't cover it up.
demonstrate: (hands!!!!)

[personal profile] demonstrate 2016-10-10 01:50 am (UTC)(link)
Right.

[ such good hair. please don't pass out because len gave you a compliment, ray. ]

Besides — [ iris pushes off the bed, attempting to reach out for that hat to pry it away from him. ] You'll be dancing. Tango, if I understood correctly. A hat will keep getting in the way. [ and falling. unless he glued it to his head or something.

and iris is too smart to give him ideas.
]
catchacold: :| (too cool for school)

[personal profile] catchacold 2016-10-10 02:05 am (UTC)(link)
[Leonard takes the stripping in stride. This is Ray. At least he doesn't have glitter all over him as he strips. This time. Besides, he's more focused on getting more popcorn, so he can swallow it before the next horrible fashion choice, which comes timely and horribly.]

You really needed Gideon, eh?

[How does an AI have better fashion sense than a person?]

If you wanna show off your cleavage, you really gotta wear a push-up bra.

[ iris is going to plop back down on the foot of the bed and hope len passes her some more of that drink. it's possible she doesn't mask the cringing as well as she'd like. ] Why don't you tell us what Sarah's like? Then we can see what outfit might fit best.

[ 'cause hey, you never know.

maybe this lovely sarah person would find that shirt ... endearing...
]
catchacold: :) (tundra)

[personal profile] catchacold 2016-10-10 02:26 am (UTC)(link)
[Leonard sees Iris' will slowly breaking and so he heroically hands the bottle back over to her. He only spares the photo Ray is showing off a few seconds before leaning back against the wall.]

That looks almost normal.

[His expectations have really lowered his standards for what counts as normal.]

Unless it says juicy on your ass or something.
demonstrate: (mondays.)

[personal profile] demonstrate 2016-10-10 02:34 am (UTC)(link)
[ leonard snart, her hero.

iris takes another sip, this time more generously, and considers how to approach the situation. it seems like ray has his heart set on a certain kind of look. she pays more attention to sarah's dress than len does, and knows that the woman will look banging.

this is a crisis.
]

Of course it doesn't say juicy on his ass or anywhere. [ beat. ]

It doesn't, right?
catchacold: :) (snowy)

[personal profile] catchacold 2016-10-11 01:52 am (UTC)(link)
Gotta love that you feel the need to check.

[No way was he going to pass that without a comment. He's not feeling all that gracious.

However, he ever so gentlemanly gestures to the closet with a mock bow of his head toward Iris.]


After you.
demonstrate: (notice.)

[personal profile] demonstrate 2016-10-12 09:58 pm (UTC)(link)
[ iris bows her head in acknowledgement. thank you, sir len.

she closes one eye, studying ray with the other.
] Okay! So, I like that you want to match Sarah's dress, but keep in mind you don't have to wear red to complement her outfit. Colors that go well with red are charcoal and black.

[ iris disappears into the closet for a minute or five. when she returns, it's with this. ray is ray palmer. he's in suits a lot. she's curious to see what a marriage between dressy and casual will look like. ] Let's start with something simple. Just to see how the colors fit on you.
catchacold: :| (chill)

I'd be thinking about selling tickets to this, if this place had an economy.

[Hard to scam people when money is worth nothing. He's not about to offer up Ray Palmer's strip show if there's nothing in it for him.]
demonstrate: (bed hair.)

[personal profile] demonstrate 2016-10-15 07:54 pm (UTC)(link)
[ right. about the stripping. iris looks up at the ceiling and bites back a smile every time. ray and social cues, man.

it's not until ray is fully clothed that she steps forward again, hands smoothing down the front of his blazer.

to len:
] You'd be doing a lot more if this place had an economy.

[ to ray: ] You're miserable, aren't you? [ the suit looks good, but a happy ray is best. ]
catchacold: :| (forecast)

probably some time after they decided on an outfit?

[personal profile] catchacold 2016-10-20 06:52 pm (UTC)(link)
[Leaning back against the wall, Leonard is actually sitting on the floor, even though his bed, desk and chair are right there. He's working on his gun, half-empty bottle next to him, only just looking up when he hears tiny Ray come in.]

You didn't tell me you're dating.

[Not that there's any obligation, but still. Worth pointing out.]
