The Queen Takes the Pawn

NOTE: This has been copied from its original post verbatim, including misc jabber before/after.

ugh, shael is so hard to write for ; ; i really need to use her more often, but she’s just so hard to fit into stories. i spent like… two hours writing/rewriting this x_x so hopefully the end result is alright.

sorry these are randomly fuzzy >:/ my camera was dying >.< but otherwise these pics turned out pretty good lol (especially since tato looks B&W!! GASP!!)

i went with wider pictures this time (this is the dimensions my new camera takes them at, but i’ve been cropping them to not be so wide)… i kind of like it like this even though it really bugged me at first. let me know what you think!

Vult, “Y’know… I was talking to Gabe the other day.”
Shael, “Hm.”

Vult, “I guess he’s thinking about asking Mer to marry him.”

Shael, “Poor guy.”
Vult, “I don’t think she’s ready for it.”

Vult, “But uh… he was asking if you and I had ever thought about…”
Shael, “. . .”

Shael, “Let’s not talk about this.”
Vult, “Why? Haven’t you–“

Shael, “No. And it’s out of the question.”

Vult, “What?? You’ve never wanted to have a family??”
Shael, “No.”

Vult, “Well, why not?”
Shael, “I’ve already been through that.”

Vult, “What, so you’re saying that somebody who’s been married once can’t marry again?”

Shael, “No. I’m saying I’ve had a child, and do not want another.”

Vult, “…Never?”
Shael, “Never.”

Vult, “But we could start a family… It would be–“

Shael, “It would be horrible.”

Vult, “. . .”

Vult, “…Sometimes I think you enjoy doing this shit.”

Shael, [sigh]

Tato, He’s gone.
Shael, “He’ll be back.”

Tato, Because Ka’var loves Avara!
Shael, “Because he’s a fool.”

Shael, “Why don’t you–“
Tato, He’s back!

Vult, “Shael, I–“
Shael, “What.”

Vult, “…I just don’t understand you.”

Shael, “And I don’t expect you to.”
Tato, He’s wondering if you even love him.

Vult, “Sometimes I–“
Shael, “No, I don’t.”

Vult, “W-what?! You–“

Shael, “If you wanted unconditional love, maybe you should have taken Meryll before Gabe got to her.”

Vult, “Wha–! That’s… That’s just sick…”

Vult, “She’s like my sister, why would you even–“
Shael, “Because I’m not her, and I never will be.”

Shael, “I am not a good person, and you know this. But you still stick around…”

Shael, “And I say these things, because…”

Shael, “No matter what I say, you always come back.”
Vult, “. . .”

Vult, “Yeah, well…”
Tato, Not this time.

Shael, “. . .”

Shael, “Vult, wait.”

Shael, “I…”

Vult, “It’s ok, I know.”

Vult, “The things you do to yourself, and to others. I know.”

Vult, “But… I’ll always be here.”
Shael, “…You’re an idiot.”

Vult, “Probably, but who else would put up with you?”
