Wasn't it a little early in the evening to be pulling Queen out already?

Cristo didn't dislike Queen or "Bohemian Rhapsody", not at all. But it had always struck him as more of a finale song than something you just played in the middle of an event like this. From where he was loitering by the refreshment table, he could see some people singing along though, so he supposed it wasn't that big a deal as long as someone was enjoying themselves. He was also relieved that the playlist wasn't just going to be twenty Taylor Swift songs on a loop or something equally safe and silly like that. Not that he hated Taylor Swift either, but his preferences tended to fall outside of pop and love songs.

He hadn't even planned on going to the dance until Abby half-begged, half-bullied him into tagging along with her and Jasper (as if anything she ever did could genuinely be considered bullying). Crowds were absolutely not his thing, but he always had a good time with Abby and Jasper was nice, and nobody was forcing him to mingle. Maybe if someone asked, he'd go and dance for a few songs. For now, he was going to hang out in his corner with the UFO decals and sip his lemonade.

He wouldn't say he was bored, or anxious, but he wasn't particularly having fun yet. The gym was too dimly lit to afford a real view of the so-called dance floor, and there was little else to hold his attention so far without him hovering around Abby and Jasper.
"Art enriches the community, Steve, no less than a pulsing fire hose, or a fireman beating down a blazing door. So what if we're drawing a nude man? So what if all we ever draw is a nude man, or the same nude man over and over in all sorts of provocative positions? Context, not content! Process, not subject! Don't be so gauche, Steve, it's beneath you."
