At the end of ACOMAF, Lucien did not scream “You’re my mate” at Elain in a claiming or possessive way. He whispered it as if he couldn’t believe it. As if he couldn’t believe it had not been Jesminda. It was a heartbroken, disbelieving whisper, guys. NOT an aggressive claim on Elain.
This has been a real labour of love, one which has taken me weeks of on/off drawing to finally reach this moment. I’m so pleased and proud of how it’s turned out, and hope it’s a worthy addition to all the other incredible fan art these books have inspired.
