and general arrangement of his face

The Meaning of a Lily, A Bawson AU, part 1

So…I started this prior to 1x07, and didn’t complete it. It may be a multi-chapter thing, idk. Have some angst. xx

Part One: Of Lilies and Roses

Mike knows a lot about giving a woman flowers. He made himself an expert on ‘I’m sorry I forgot our anniversary flowers’ (Rachel), ‘I’m sorry I forgot your birthday flowers (Rachel, his mother, and his older sister), ‘I’m just sorry in general’ (see previous lists), and ‘thanks for last night flowers’ (countless, nameless women he slept with post his separation from Rachel.)

He’s never really understood their purpose beyond needing to make up for something or save face. He’s never witnessed a woman he sent flowers to receive them—choosing to have them delivered and not bear the brunt of her wrath. Never seen their faces light up in happiness or fall in disappointment.

(He did see a number of arrangements in the trash towards the end of his marriage.)

I’d say that in general, there are four basic shapes, which I have arranged for you here in convenient rows.

  1. The Classic: Aesthetically pleasing and flat, with eyeholes. It basically looks like a motorcycle helmet. This is my personal favorite.
  2. The Pill Helmet: Ugly, impractical, and generally ridiculous– this hood is primarily featured in what I call the Bad Years. Characterization and costume choice were both very, very poor.
  3. The Pharaoh: Are faces really shaped like that? How exactly does he see? We may never know, but I believe that we can safely say that Jason’s fashion sense, unlike his actual self on occasion, is very much alive. Clearly. I mean, look at that.
  4. The Who the Hell Authorized This: Identifiable by it’s magical ability to shift expression to fit Jason’s mood. Infinite variations of this helmet (alternatively named “The Lobdell”) can be found throughout the n52, ranging from questionable to downright terrifying– As we all know, when it comes to the New 52, inconsistency is key! Don’t be afraid, children. It’ll be okay. Red Hood is here.

Thankfully, the recent trend has been a return to the classic look. I don’t know how long that will last, but hey! At least they’re trying. I think.
