"Yeah. I - if I'd had warning I think I might have tried writing letters to safely get to know Leareth? I don't know if you could set that up without it being weird."

Permalink

"Right now that feels so weird! And Stef would be really suspicious about it if I avoided him all the time but wanted to write him letters! I guess maybe I can tell Randi I want to move up north and work there? For some reason? And then I won't have to awkwardly avoid Stef here and I'll have an excuse to stay in touch with him and Medren."

"...I mean, pretty soon it's not Randi you have to tell, and I know the reason."

"That's fair. I'm worried he might hound me at the wedding, but I guess I can hide." 

Permalink

"Who might, Stef?"

Permalink

"Yes. Not because he's guessed or anything, just because I'm a famous war hero and apparently that's very glamorous." Vanyel makes such a face about this. 

Permalink

"Well, you have my blessing to hide."

Permalink

Nod. "I'm sorry you have to get dragged into this too. It's so awkward." 

Permalink

"You are obviously having a way worse time about it than I am."

Permalink

"Mmm." Vanyel shuffles his feet. "I should– er, I think I need some time alone..." 

Permalink

"Yeah, of course." She pats his shoulder and leaves him be.

Permalink

It's a lot to absorb and Vanyel still has no idea how to think or feel about it, but he's in a better mood by the time the wedding day rolls around. Or at least not bursting into tears at random, anyway.

Leareth's wedding outfit managed to get quite a bit of embroidery done on it, and he's pleased with it, holding it up for Belrun's perusal. 

Permalink

"It's lovely! Embroidering on a spell was a good idea."

Permalink

"Are you pleased with how your dress turned out?" 

Permalink

"It's fine. I decided not to have microbes embroidered on it because they're mostly not very pretty, so it's just flowers."

Permalink

"Fair enough." 

Leareth paces. 

"...I am sorry to be dumping stress at you through the lifebond. I think it is unlikely anything bad will happen, nonetheless, I am going to be tense until today is over." 

Permalink

"Yeah, I get it." She hugs him.

Permalink

Hug. 

And once they're done getting ready, they can head out to see if there are any final pre-wedding logistics to be checked. 

Permalink

Savil is in charge of security arrangements (provided by Valdemar, that is, Leareth has some supplemental ones), and confirms to Leareth that it's all been done to their specifications. 

Permalink

And on their wedding day they can get married! Belrun usually has her hair tied back to keep it out of the way; she wears it down with the wedding dress, which flatters her very nicely.

Permalink

Awwwww. She looks pretty enough that Leareth momentarily forgets to be stressed. :I love you: 

They don't get married in a temple; they use one of the new Heraldic public buildings, with some extra illusioned decor.

Permalink

Dara is there as a witness, beaming. 

Permalink

Nayoki is there and also looks pretty delighted.

Rana's there, and Chalan has ridden in too, and they're thrilled!
