"I'm very glad." Kiss.

Kiss! "...so, do you wanna have the ceremony on a beach? I feel like that would be fun."

"Yeah, sounds good."

"We could get Dragon to officiate it? You not having a secret identity makes it complicated to get both Lorica and Bella appropriately married and it's the former who's known to be associated with you but the latter who can't get away with an 'unspecified' on record as her spouse. Dragon could probably figure it out, make up a fake secret identity you won't have to maintain for you."

"Oooh, I like that. And she's the person I trust most here anyway - well, I'm assuming here that you can't officiate it -"

"It cannot be me and it would be weird if it were either of my parents. But we can get Dragon to get a certification as a celebrant from the Universal Life Church. - Religious leaders are generally allowed to do the thing but this annoyed nonreligious people so now there is a church the sole tenet of which is that if you send them like thirty bucks you can perform weddings."

"Humans are kind of growing on me."

"What about that is so great? The rules-lawyering?"
Permalink

"The rules-lawyering, the - there's no reason for this but we can't be rid of it so we'll just let something functional - sprout through the cracks, like a weed -"

"Human civilization is substantial fractions metaphorical weed."

"And it's cute."

 

They ask Dragon to officiate their wedding.

Permalink
"I would be happy to!"
Permalink
"I don't really have any school friends or Wards friends I super want to invite, so we can have it be really tiny and I can go unmasked, or if you want to invite linguistics thesis guy or something I can just go really hard on the veil thing."
Permalink

"I haven't seen him in...thirteen years? And I like seeing your face. You can go unmasked."

Permalink
"Okay. You me Dragon and my parents. And Rete. It can take a video and the Elves can watch it whenever they are in video watching distance."
Permalink

"They'll appreciate it." Kiss.

And the October after Lorica's twenty-first birthday she gets herself in a white dress (she gave Rete a sewing machine and it did very patient embroidering) and they assemble on a beach.

Renée cries!

Awwwww. He will wear a suit, it is considered customary. He will kiss his Lorica and be so happy. And sing.

Permalink
He sings so nicely! Also kisses so nicely! It is actually kind of weird to see him in a suit when he is usually wearing handmade colorful soft robey things!
Permalink

He prefers those but for a wedding they can do Earth customs! And when he shows Elves they will be all curious about the strange foreign garments he is wearing. "I don't have any particular talent for sewing, but the nice fabrics were all in women's clothes and Dylan said it'd be terrible if I just bought those, so sewing myself it was."

Permalink
"You can have Rete sew you stuff since it knows how now. Times have changed a little for crossdressing since then, but you're kind of too tall to get things off the rack and it would be an odd aesthetic, I can't say it would really do anything for me."
Permalink

"I will invite Rete to have a go at it. I wasn't particularly attached to the styles, I think they're mostly cut for - uh. Not me." 

Permalink
"That's what happens when clothes have sexual dimorphism."
Permalink

"I do feel bad for all the human men who can't be pretty. But it's pretty far down the very very long priority list." They have cake, and pictures.
