msilverstar: (viggo direct thor)
For the [livejournal.com profile] lotrips100 reflection challenge, [livejournal.com profile] gabbyhope has the best ideas!

"You want to know why? Just look."

At that quiet command, Orlando looks at their reflection in the shop window. Imagining himself that lone woman, he sees that they do look menacing, looming in their dark coats, his mohawk. "We look like those twisted blokes at Columbine."

"And every white mugger in every bad movie."

"Don't want to scare her."

"Try this." Viggo starts whistling, of all things. The tune is fiddly, all jumps and trills, Baroque? The woman calms down, walks slower, turns the corner away from them.


"Classical music. It's very reassuring."

"Would it work with showtunes?"

Notes: Inspired by my tall brother, who hates making people nervous on the street. For a change, not triggered by a dream. Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] hanarobi for encouragement.
