Question:/aw/ Glad you liked it. I feel that it's too neatly tied up; I have "deleted scenes" that are too long to submit anonymously. But they deal with Bea's PTSD, Bea's "debriefing" of what happened before Ben showed up, the prince admitting he once loved Bea but it turned into friendship (so he says), the prince revealing that DJ was being taken "home" to be dealt with, Ben going darkish in his anger at not being able to kill DJ himself, and a longer version of the epilogue. You're writing D/D? Yay! - Anonymous
omg! that all sounds amazing too though! isn’t it annoying when you have so much inner story and back story and it never ends up in the story proper? like, you’re always wondering if it conveys the proper feel even though the reader doesn’t know the whole new world that you’ve imagined and all the details and everything.. or maybe that’s just me, idk.. i just wish i could sketch better. then i could include pictures with my words and maybe it would clarify some of the fuzzy parts. and yes, i’m writing a doctor/donna fic which explains how they’re technically married.. with interesting results.. :)
Question:“My Love, it’s been two weeks.” His voice was so gentle. But he refused to move. She hated him for it. She remained frozen, unable to walk onto the patio. It was silly, really: afraid of her own house. But just thinking of that sunlit place chilled her. Her husband was patient. Willing her breath to regulate, she took one tiny step. Then another. The heavy dread began to dissolve. Soon, she stood at his side. His smile was broad and proud. “My Lady Courage,” he whispered, kissing her gently.~end - Anonymous
ahhhh!! this was so perfect and i loved it and hero being all BAMF and the prince being all awkward in love and bea and ben being all— ‘i’d give my life for you, darling’ it’s all so lovely- thank you!!!
Question:Frightened out of their sanctuary, the two lovers took solace in the other’s presence. Benedick lamented that he had been unable to keep his Beatrice from harm. Beatrice conveyed in her quiet way there was nothing to forgive. In time, their merry war would resume, for their dispositions would not allow for a prolonged state of agitation or grief. Their greatest strength had always been their union, and in that, they would mend. (epilogue coming) - Anonymous
Question:For their part, Benedick and Beatrice remained encased in a silence rare for them. They had been assured that they both would make a full recovery. It was recommended, to expedite her healing, Beatrice speak only infrequently for a few days. Everyone wondered how long she’d be able to heed the doctor’s advice. Benedick’s arm would remain in a sling for at least a fortnight; he had gladly taken the instruction and had refused any pain medication, for he took it as penance. - Anonymous
Question:Benedick was sitting with Beatrice on her bed, his good arm wrapped protectively around her. The prince assured them there would be no escape for Don John this time. They could only nod, too raw from the near disaster. Don Pedro left before any other revelation from that day could be discussed. His friends were safe, and that was all he cared to admit to. - Anonymous
Question:The hospital staff agreed Beatrice and Benedick were both impossible patients. Neither would rest until they knew the other was not in any danger. They eventually acquiesced and allowed the two to be in the same room. That was where the prince found them. - Anonymous
Question:He stilled her shaking form. “Beatrice,” he said again. They stared at one another before a scratched sob escaped Beatrice’s mangled throat. They fell into each other’s arms. Their embrace was so fierce, it took the prince and Hero a full minute to convince them it was safe to let go. (more to come!) - Anonymous
