Gotham University, Deidre Wayne Performance Hall, Saturday evening - The Forest of Arden
"No, hath not?
Rosalind lacks, then, the love which teacheth thee
that thou and I am one.
Shall we be sund'red? Shall we part, sweet girl?
No; let my father seek another heir.
Therefore devise with me how we may fly,
Whither to go,
and what to bear with us;
And do not seek to take your charge upon you,
To bear your griefs yourself, and leave me out;
For, by this heaven, now at our sorrows pale,
Say what thou canst, I'll go along with thee."

Anyone seeing Dinah in a very convincing black wig would still have recognized her by the enthusiasm, more than likely. The costumes were from the 19th Century, not the 16th, and the theater-in-the-round meant that the actors were making entrances from behind the audience, the trap door, and the flies on occasion.

Dinah was having a blast. And hoping a few people would meet her after it was over.

[for those in attendance tonight]

Momoko was enjoying the play. Of course she spotted Dinah, but she easily got lost in the actual story. And while it was awesome having the actors coming down the aisles sometimes, it was a bit of a bother since it meant she had to turn her head and shift in her seat a bit.

"Ah, sorry!" She whispered again as she accidentally brushed against Jaime in the next seat over, pulling back at the contact.

Jaime jumped at the touch, but was quick to assure her. "It's okay." He was doing his best to ignore the heat radiating off Momoko's skin, and pay attention to the play.

And the truth was? It was fun to watch Dinah up there. She was doing a great job.

Momoko nodded, totally not looking at him and even leaning a bit away as a precaution against it happening yet again. Not that it had worked so far, since she kept relaxing into the play and forgetting. Dinah wasn't the lead, but she was really convincing and soon enough Momoko was deep in the plot again.

It totally had to be a romantic comedy, didn't it?

Of course it did.

Jaime tried to do the same thing, losing himself in the play. And soon enough it was over and he was standing and applauding.

Backstage....

Dinah had managed to ditch her wig, but not the flower-wreath; Oliver-her-fiance had put it right back on her head, and then, well.

Lambie got loose. And half the cast was trying to find her.

Dinah was sitting on one of the random green hillocks and giggling now. With Oliver throwing more daisy chains over her head.

Re: Backstage....

Do not ask how Momoko had gotten back stage. It was a process better left mysterious, but it had served her well many times at past conventions and totally got her and Jaime (who she was NOT dragging by the hand) to the rear of the theater and onto the stage.

"Dinah!! That. Was. Awesome! You were great!"

Re: Backstage....

Jaime had to laugh at Momoko's enthusiasm even if he was staying a little farther away from her than usual. "She's right, you know."

He had his hands clasped behind his back. Which explained the not-getting-dragged-by-the-hand thing. Really!

Re: Backstage....

"Guys!!" Dinah half jumped and half slid off the hillock, Oliver rolling down after her, and bounced over to give them a joint squeezy hug. "You came! Awwww! Thank you!"

"Baaaaaaaaa."

More giggling, and Dinah pulled back to grin at them. "Together! Yay. More people!" The flower wreath was trying to dip over her eye. "You liked it? Really? It was good?"

Oliver was rolling his eyes behind her back and grinning at them. "Oh, and this is Todd, my fake fiancee. Say hi to Momoko and Jaime, Todd."

Re: Backstage....

A joint squeezy hug, that as soon as it was over had Momoko trying not to rub at the parts of her arm that been touching a certain someone.

"We did! We really did!" Momoko grinned and waved at Todd. "Hi! I'm Momoko! You were good too! I really liked the scene at the tree."

Re: Backstage....

"And I'm Jaime," Jaime laughed.

"And I have something for you..." He pulled his hand out from behind his back to reveal a bouquet! White roses.

Re: Backstage....

"Thanks," Todd grinned. "It's kind of fun, getting to be a reformed villain. And kissing Dinah's not a hardship."

"Smartass," Dinah commented back to him.

Dinah had caught that movement of Momoko's, and wondered if she'd squeezed her too hard? Then she was distracted and gleeful as Jaime pulled out the bouquet.

"Awwwwwwww!! You didn't have to! Thank you!" That got him a hug for himself, and a spontaneous kiss on the cheek-- the Dinah taking a step back, and trying to process extra-super-fast three things:

1) She didn't want to kiss him on the lips. Well, she'd like to, but-- it didn't hurt, that she couldn't.
2) She still wanted to hug him, though.
3) Kyle was approaching from behind him.

She waved.

Re: Backstage....

"Show-off" Momoko facepalmed at Jaime's presentation of the flowers. "He's had those all night. We almost had to get an extra seat, he was so worried over them."

She turned at Dinah's wave, and then waved as well as she recognized who was approaching. "Ah! Hi, Kyle, hi! I came back!"

Re: Backstage....

Jaime grinned, flushing at the hug and the kiss (which served as an unintended reminder of... an earlier incident). "I did have to," he countered.

Then he looked up, following Momoko's gaze. So that was Kyle...

Re: Backstage....

"Should I be jealous?" Kyle asked, shooting a glance at the guy Dinah had just kissed. But it was on the cheek so he was... mostly kidding.

Then he turned his gaze toward Momoko, "Or worried?"

Re: Backstage....

Dinah linked her arm through his, and stood on tip-toe to press a similar kiss to his cheek. "Only if it's fun for you... Jaime, Kyle; Kyle, Jaime." She'd told him Jaime was going to be here, so hopefully he'd be okay about this. And Jaime would be okay. And ... everything would be okay?

Another "Maaaa!" could be heard from somewhere nearby. "Lambie-toes got loose again." She grinned at Momoko now. "And you remember Momoko from last month... "

Todd was making faces at Kyle now. Someone might enjoy teasing his co-star. Dinah stuck out her tongue at him.
