Elemental: I'm Ready by deslea Elemental: I'm Ready by deslea
Another illustration from the fic Elemental. After learning of her father's lack of faith in her and deciding that trying to please him has been pointless, Bella tells Tom that she's ready. I devoted really a ridiculous amount of thought to this one, playing up the light of Bella/outside and the dullness of what he's leaving behind, because I can be a bit precious like that. ;) I had a movie line (maybe Notting Hill) about "I'm just a girl asking a boy" in the back of my mind for this - it's a "big" moment, but also a mundane, "how-it's supposed-to-be" one too.

Excerpt:

When it happened, it happened without fanfare.

It was simply answering the door one day - Merlin knew why it was him and not one of the elves - and she was there.

"I'm ready," she said softly.

He had visions of crashing into her, hungry mouths colliding. Of tearing at clothes and tugging her hair. Of kissing her so hard that she would bruise, five years of overripe longing coming to fruit at last.

He didn't. The magical storm between them would likely burn the house down, and half the county with it.

"Come away with me," he whispered.

She nodded. She didn't ask where.

He put one arm around her shoulder, hoisted her up with the other, and together, they began to fly.

Thank you! I didn't think of it that way, but you're right - it is very much a wedding pose. And wedding solemnity too, actually.

This is so beautiful... I shivered when reading the text. Whenever I read about Tom in your stories I realize how much I love him. How can it be that you write him so close to my Tom...
