WaP - 80. Words by fictograph WaP - 80. Words by fictograph
The colored silk pinned to the walls covered their bedroom in a soft haze. Sandalwood incense weighted the air, wrapping the room in its fragrant blanket. Toriayne scratched his hair and let his wig slide to the floor. Belsamel stood behind him and held his arms against the other man’s waist, urging him to bed.

Toriayne followed, letting the heavy dress slip off his shoulders. The gold coins decorating its hems jingled as it drifted to the floor. He felt so much lighter without the padding required by his female costume. Belsamel extended his hand as his lover slid between the sheets. Torianye bowed his head to kiss the dark skin on his king’s wrist.

Tori felt Belsamel’s lips on his spine. The king drew a line of kisses up the side of his neck. One dark hand caressed his bare chest, and the other reached between his legs. Toriayne grasped his husband’s hand in his, “Not tonight.”

“Is something troubling you?” Belsamel removed his hands and began massaging his shoulders.

Toriayne sighed, “What the counsel said today has been weighing on my mind.”

Belsamel ran his fingers through Toriayne’s ashen curls. “The counsel will never tear us apart, Tori. I love you.”

“I don’t worry about the council,” Toriayne traced his fingers along the patterns in their blanket. “I worry because I know I cannot provide you with a son.”

His hands stopped. “We will worry about that when the time comes.”

“That’s the thing, Bel, the time is here.”

Belsamel put his hands on Toriayne’s chest. “It is not here until I say it is here. I am a king, and you have my word that time is not here.”

Toriayne bit his lip but ran his fingers down Belsamel’s cheek. “Words, especially those of kings, can be dangerous.”

Belsamel turned Toriayne’s face toward his, planting a kiss on his forehead. “Tori, I am the one who loves you. You were a simple tailor, and I made you into royalty. You will never find anyone who loves you as much as I do. Who would accept a man who wears women’s clothing?”

Toriayne’s lips parted, but before he could say anything, Belsamel kissed his open mouth. As he withdrew, he whispered, “I love you. I rescued you, and you belong with me.”

So far I'm just a little wary of Belsamel. Good for him just loving whoever and eff the naysayers, but this whole 'you belong with me' is a red flag so can't say I'm too hyped for them either.

Well, I mean - you picked up on an earlier spoiler. Combine that with this, and you can put two and two together. ;)

I'm glad you were able to read between the lines, though, to my original intent. This scene has gotten the most mixed feedback out of what I've posted. Some people think it's really romantic. Some people think it's uncomfortably sexual. But haha, I don't know if I can like say it, but you got it right. rofl.

I never get tired of reading these even if I don't get to comment on them all. You NEED to make this novel, nao!! XD

...and hey, perfect time too since it's NaNoWriMo starting today :D

But in all seriousness, love the characters and artistry and detailing on all of these is just beautiful. Keep em coming!

It makes me glad to know you're reading them. I always wonder if people are. Like, I know you have high standards, too, so it means a lot OTL OTL OTL

I considered NaNoWriMo, but it's too hard with all the art classes I'm taking at the moment. :/

I wouldn't miss these! They were fun to read before, but now that I've actually had a chance for my char to interact with yours and to learn about the world you're creating here it's like waiting for the next novel in your favorite series to come out, hehe!

Yeah I imagine that takes a lot out of you, but hey it'll be there next year too so who knows! I'm trying to writing up Dev and Sadye's stories from Serendipity for it this year. I've been wanting to kind of compile that stuff into a whole, finished story since the contest so I figure this is the perfect opportunity (and with no word limits!!! XD). Plus it's a good opportunity to flex those writing muscles on something a little easier (since I have so much to reference for where to go next for this) before trying to dive into the novel I've always wanted to write.

But yes, keep posting them, they're a joy to read! :D

Gosh, I wish I weren't such a failure and actually wrote stuff in chronological order like real writers. My rate is about 500 words per night, so that'd be like... 100 nights to write a novel?!

More like I just need to take some time off and write stuff. I think I'm going to make a New Year's Resolution to help minimize distractions: no fanart until I write my first novel. I am thinking of doing a less personal story to whet my chops, though. It actually relates back to a few old RPs. If you want to know about it, hit me up on AIM/MSN/Gtalk/Facebook.

I also meant to ask you, if I get my act together, do you want to be a paid beta reader for my stuff?

I would love to be a beta reader! That would be fantastic :D

Don't beat yourself up too much over it, every little bit helps after all. Every writer has their Achilles' heel (mine is starting stuff and never finishing it) but goals do help, which is why I like NaNoWriMo so much. Something you might think about when your take your time to write, Nov is usually a busy month for most people since it's the start of the holiday season, so maybe do your NaNoWriMo a different, less busy month. Then you can still use it as a goal of "I want to write 50,000 words in 30 days" but do it when it's convenient for you :)

Also, I do seem to recall hearing about an author who would get up and write 500 words every morning and published several books doing that (can't remember the author's name right off though), and when you think about that it takes some authors years to complete a book, 100 days doesn't seem too bad eh? ;)

P.S. Is your AIM stuff still the same? I believe I might have switched AIM accounts since I last added you so I might need to re-add you
