I've got my weaknesses too

selectively sweet shipping meme
You might be the biggest curmudgeon in the known universe, just as prickly as a porcupine. Perhaps you're on the other end of the spectrum, cool like a cucumber and never letting anyone get to you. They're not worthy of your time. Still, despite what the case may be, you have one little weak spot. The person you love gets all the sweetness and kindness you have, which admittedly may not be too much, and in your rare moments together, many would be shocked at how you behave. In fact, your special person might not even know that you can be grumpy outside of your encounters!

Well, goes to show that everyone doen't know everything about you, do they?

  • This meme is pretty shamelessly for fluff, opening up, dokis, and also more dokis.

[Xander is infamous for his hard exterior, at least in public. Frankly, he sort of needs to be hard-faced in his daily life, as new king of his realm. After all, politics and law aren't exactly career choices for the faint of heart. And Xander learned from his father, who was one of the best in terms of coming off sternly.

But that wasn't all there was to him, as certain people close to him knew. People such as his family and his retainers. And of course, his new wife.

Once Xander's official duties are done for the day, he gets up and leaves the throne room for a less formal part of the castle. But rather than going to his quarters like he normally would, he heads for the tower where the wyverns roost. He knows that's where Cherche is going to be.

And sure enough, he spots her as soon as he walks into the topmost floor of the tower, where she's talking to Minerva. Dropping his guard and smiling warmly, he walks over to her.]


As always, you are such a wonderful sight for sore eyes.
mommyofdragons: (pic#11284449)

[personal profile] mommyofdragons 2017-04-19 01:15 am (UTC)(link)
[Nohr was certainly a difficult place to live and Cherche understood Xander's demeanor. In many ways, she needed to do the same back in Rosanne-- with Virion. But her new husband was hardly the emotionless ruler he lead his people to believe. Just as his wife was more than a terrifying wyvern rider.]

Minerva always seems to make you smile, doesn't she?

[Cherche laughs, playfully moving away from him.]

Perhaps I should be jealous that she has won your heart and not me.
blackparagon: (6)

[personal profile] blackparagon 2017-04-19 09:51 pm (UTC)(link)
[Xander raises his eyebrows in mild surprise for a few seconds. Then he lets himself laugh softly.]

Having Minerva nearby is certainly reassuring. But I was addressing you, Cherche. My queen.

[He steps forward and reaches out with both hands to take her own hands.]

Please, keep me company.
mommyofdragons: (We are the warriors)

[personal profile] mommyofdragons 2017-04-19 10:36 pm (UTC)(link)
So it seems I'm still in this battle for this handsome king's heart.

[Crossing over, she grabs his and squeezes.]

Are things alright, Xander? Patient as I try to be, we have been married but a few short months and yet we see one another for moments at a time. To share my beloved with our kingdom is expected and he is a strong man both inside and out, but I worry.

[Her hand moves to caress his cheek.]

Perhaps I am simply selfish in wanting a day, you and I, as husband and wife.
blackparagon: (9)

[personal profile] blackparagon 2017-04-22 03:52 pm (UTC)(link)
You have had the advantage ever since the moment I laid eyes on you.

[Xander remains motionless while Cherche caresses his cheek. However, as she talks, he smiles.]

You're not being selfish at all. We -- that is to say, you and I -- are both human, and we have human needs. But we're also fortunate to have been gifted with such a wonderful family.

[He then lifts his other arm and wraps it around her waist.]

Tomorrow, we get that day. My siblings will handle all affairs while we take a much-needed day off.

Such pretty words and sweet promises from a charming man.

[She stays in his arms for a brief moment, leaning in close and lightly brushing her lips against his before pulling back.]

It is how I fell into your little trap in the first place.

[Holding his hand, she untwists herself from his grasp, lingering her fingers along his wrist and down his thumb before letting go entirely.
A wyvern is only gained by someone who has proved their strength and skill. The same could be said of Cherche and her heart of a dragon.]


Should we decide then what our plan for tomorrow will be?

[She crosses the room, tossing her hair so that a hint of her bare back is visible for a second, disappearing again as she speaks. A playful invitation for him to follow. To prove himself to her again.]

Or we could simply follow the day how it goes.
blackparagon: (6)

[personal profile] blackparagon 2017-04-23 11:12 pm (UTC)(link)
[Xander is only happy to play into Cherche's little game here. The gentle sensations of her light kiss and her touches upon his hand are tantalizing enough to catch his interest, and the tease of her bare back only adds more fuel to the fire. It all serves to motivate him even further to return to their quarters with her.

However, Xander also makes sure to not linger too long, and immediately walks forth after his wife, his long legs allowing him to quickly catch up with her and walk beside her. Teasing or not, it would be improper in his mind for one of them to walk in front of the other.]


You're quite adept at planting delicious bait yourself, my wife.

[It still excites him to refer to Cherche as his wife. Just hearing himself speak those words aloud stimulates both mind and heart.]

Personally, I was hoping for some peace and quiet. Nobody but the two of us, alone wherever we decide to be. However...when was the last time I cooked for you?
mommyofdragons: (We are the warriors)

[personal profile] mommyofdragons 2017-04-26 12:51 am (UTC)(link)
What would the people of Nohr think upon seeing their strict ruler cooking a stew for his beloved?

[She giggled, holding her hand out to grasp his.]

But to answer your question, it's been quite some time. Possibly before we were engaged.

[Pausing in front of her dear wyvern, Cherche holds her free hand out to caress Minerva's foot.]

You be good, do you understand? I will be busy tomorrow so please behave yourself with the others.

[With a screech in reply, she returns her attention to Xander, tracing her finger along the hem of his jacket.]

Whatever happens tomorrow between the two of us shall remain our little secret. I promise.
blackparagon: (9)

[personal profile] blackparagon 2017-04-26 01:53 am (UTC)(link)
[Xander shakes his head, but his smile never leaves his face. His people would never realize that the king likes to cook for his queen. Even royalty has private lives.

He happily clasps his hand in Cherche's as they walk, giving it a gentle squeeze as she touches the hem of his jacket and nodding to Minerva as they pass the wyvern, keeping the smile on his face.]


Good. Because we simply deserve our own time to be happy. Even the mightiest of kings is still just a human being. And we humans have needs, don't we?

soooo much set up for this

[personal profile] yorkist 2017-04-21 07:59 am (UTC)(link)
Their parting had nearly broken her heart; and yet, she had persevered. Journeying south, she had had the good fortune to meet Brienne of Tarth on the road. Who, upon hearing that Sansa was safe in the company of her brother, had insisted she escort her wherever she was going. Where had she intended to go? Further south, or so had been the plan. However, news of what Cersei Lannister had done to House Tyrell was on the wagging tongues of everyone beyond the Riverlands.

In that moment, she had her answer. Brienne took her with some reluctance well-past the viper's nest of King's Landing to Highgarden, where she had met a witty, but nonetheless grieving lady. The woman had made her wait a full two hours before granting her an audience, in which time Elizabeth could note the marked absence of other members of House Tyrell. This woman was alone, vulnerable. And at understandable odds with Cersei. Even without being aware of Olenna's sojourn in Dorne, she knew she could find an ally here.

Not once had Jon, nor the danger he intended to face alone as he had that damned cavalry charge left her thoughts. He would need aid, but was a bit lacking at the moment when it came to diplomacy. She was not, and so, when at last guided to a sunny salon to greet the Queen of Thorns, she did so with a smile and a wry remark rather than impatience or annoyance. Together, they had much to speak of, and understandably, trust needed to be built on both sides. The fact that the emblem of her family, embroidered boldly upon her cloak so well-matched the Tyrell arms made the old woman curious.

Eventually, their rapport grew enough that they could confide reasonably well in one-another. The lady reminded her of her own maternal grandparent, never without a witty quip and word of wisdom. As she had taken to Jacquetta Woodville in her early childhood, so did she now take to Olenna Tyrell. In time, she was adopted. Elizabeth, no longer nobody from nowhere, could now ask to take soldiers, supplies and food to the North and explain just why. Many of the reach's fighting men had gone to sail with the Dragon Queen, but not all.

A portion of those, some five thousand, she was granted to take up north. Under the condition that she wed a northerner who wasn't a fool. (If indeed one should exist.) the challenge was set, and Elizabeth did not intend to lose.

----

So, she gathers the men and once again makes the long, tedious journey on horseback across the continent. Brienne seems more and more relieved and apprehensive all at once the nearer they draw to the Riverlands, though Elizabeth does not ask why. She feels much the same as they wave the orchards and streams a fond farewell and close in upon Winterfell, instead. The weather is notably terrible, a blizzard striking when they are some two days' ride away. They camp, and wait nearly four days more before the storm clears enough for the wagons to pass safely.

It is worth it, though, as she can return to Winterfell with a host of soldiers at her back, flanked by Brienne and Pod. They take their leave to seek out Sansa, while she leaves her horse with a groom, and looks up to the rampart, chest tightening when she can see him there, watching everyone come in. Perhaps she should have sent a raven, but with so much conflict between here and the Reach, she dared not risk it. Now, she knows not what to say, leaving a stunned Sansa to direct the soldiers to the barracks as Elizabeth climbs the steps, coming to a halt some distance away from him.

Winds whips at her hair, loosening some of the curls from her braid, but it matters not. Her breath catches, as in silence, she pauses before him, uncertain as to what to say or do.

The aftermath of the battle had traveled quickly from animosity and questions of loyalty to the North's reaffirmation that they were separate from the realm. Once again, the Northern Lords chose a king and once again it was a son of Ned Stark's. Stylized as the "White Wolf", Jon had listened in stunned horror as the men knelt before him, drawing their swords and declaring their allegiance. He stood and accepted the title they thrust upon them, unprepared for this life or this future, but uncertain how he could actually refuse? In one fell swoop, he had regained his family, reclaimed his home, and recovered a title that had died alongside Robb.

King in the North.

He had followed that evening with several more gatherings, filled with discussions on the distribution of land and titles, those that should be punished but weren't because Jon refused. His focus, as he always tried to remind others, was on the coming battle. They could bicker about kings and King's Landing when the Others were dealt with. All of it now were paltry matters. It was a subject that was too easily dismissed in the face of the more glamorous "who should sit on the Iron Throne." He didn't care, he cared about survival.

Only at night, when the full weight and burden of the crown bared down on him, did he think about softer matters. His mind would drift to Elizabeth and where she might be. While he regretted their parting and hurting her, a smaller part of him felt relief. He had lost so many and seen so much death. He could lose her among that. Still, it didn't remove how much he missed her and how much he wished he had her near to talk to.

When word reached him about her alliance with the Tyrells and acquisition of men, he was left as speechless and dumbfounded as when a crown was placed on him. The men would assist, but would it be enough? He still needed to speak with the other houses in Westeros, but Bess had already begun that by gaining Tyrell support. He could only stare wordlessly as she rode into the courtyard. Despite all he had done, she still worked to help him and help Westeros (though which was the greater drive, he couldn't say).

He waited for her in the Great Hall. Sansa had wanted to join him, but he had refused her that. If she was to meet with Littlefinger privately, this would be a meeting he would have privately. Rather than wait for Bess behind his table, seated like a king, he instead paced the floor, staring back at his chair. It was hard to know which would make this easier.

He regarded her quietly as she entered the room, uncertain as well at what to say.
