My first question is probably a bit icky, so I'll put it under a cut.

Secondly, I have two characters who are in a sort of relationship, though not quite the normal kind. That's beside the point. The point is that I was looking for information about how much a person can logically lift, but it's sort of hard. I tried asking people I know, but it wasn't very helpful. One of my characters is a fairly large man, in the military, so he's well trained, though not to the bodybuilder extreme. He's 6'1" and about 183lbs or so. The other is 5'4" and 105lbs (and needs to put on weight). They're both in their thirties, and both healthy. Now, I'm aware that the larger one could easily lift the smaller one, my sister lifts me and I'm a lot heavier. What I'm wondering is if he can comfortably carry the smaller one around? I assume he can, but I really want to get things right.
And lastly, I'm wondering just how well greasepaint actually stays on. Specifically, I'm wondering about the paint they used back in the 1860s when greasepaint was invented, but any information is gratefully accepted. I can't find anything specific about the durability.
Hopefully, I did this right.
