Pomelo #3

Author's Note: It's been a thousand years and also at this point I don't even know the plot, half the characters you saw got ditched, I'm just throwing my OCs at the epic fantasy board and seeing what happens. One of the characters I've written about previously no longer exists! Maybe.

Also I lost the document where I stored my flavors. So that happened. This is later in the story.

This is my much delayed entry for this year’s Unconventional Courtship fest. It’s very long and entirely irrelevant to the main canon, and, as it happens, not even true to the original romance novel summary chosen, so please feel free to ignore! I decided to post it in the end, especially as it also fit one of my hc_bingo squares perfectly. Apologies for the ridiculous length. (With many thanks to persiflage_1 for the swift beta.)
Summary: Thanks to one indiscretion, Edward Iveson's life and reputation is in ruins, until Julia Graves comes to his rescue with a proposal of marriage. Edward can hardly turn her down, but what is it that Julia wants from him?

Story Excerpt...

This is a brief start to a story that was inspired by a recent dream. It obviously does not start at the beginning of a story line but rather throws you into the middle. I am considering playing around with this story line and possibly expanding this excerpt into something more. Please leave any feedback (positive or negative) to help polish this idea. :)

...I found myself in a state of awe as I walked through the door Deacon had just unlocked. At first, this seemed like your typical ski cabin in the woods with the tall ceilings and large open windows. It was what laid beyond the windows that had me speechless. Despite having just come from a very plain, wooded road, the view through the window appeared to be a different world entirely. I could see massive mountains reaching impeccable heights, there were light, pastel colored clouds drifting among the peaks, and in the very far distance you could see a speck of silver glinting in the sun.

"That," Deacon whispered from behind me. "is Alfheim."
"What? How?" I stuttered in shock. This didn't seem possible to me.

Without another word he brushed passed me, turning back with his stupid smirk, before sitting on the large couch in the living room. I was unable to move, trapped staring at the sight before me. However, my daze was abruptly shattered by Tegan and Everett bursting through the door. Everett raced up the stairs to my left that I hadn't even noticed while Tegan came to stand by my side.

"Breathtaking isn't it?" She asked, moving her head back and forth slowly in appreciation.

They"re halfway off the road, the right two wheels kicking up gravel.Collapse )

Also, if anyone is curious about the bad techno Devyn is being subjected to, it's Better Off Alone by Alice Deejay.)

I"m asking you to leave, Devyn.Collapse )
