And you say it’s gonna last forever We have different heartbeats but all the same heartbreak And I can feel it in the way you hold me The way you hold me I know you’re lonely too [Listen]
First time making a drawing without lineart (insert Daniel Radcliffe-gif here, saying, “I tried, and therefore no one should criticize me”). I’m not completely satisfied with some parts but I’m so tired of working on them now so it will have to do. The colours look much better when viewed on a computer, so to anyone seeing them on a phone, I’m sorry.
5 on the kiss prompts with Julian? Please? I'm begging.
“I’m sure it’s time for you to return to the palace. No doubt the Countess will want you to return to your, ah, investigation,” he says, his tone steeped in derision.
They understand it’s not directed at them, but at the situation the two of them are in. After all, the Countess wants them to apprehend Julian Devorak, her husband’s alleged murderer… and here they are, wrapped up in his embrace. Well, right now they’re not, but they can clearly recall the feeling of his arms wrapped about their waist, his lips pushing against theirs.
“You’re right,” they say regrettably. “I guess this is… goodbye, for now.”
“Hmm, I guess it is,” is Julian’s noncommittal response. They feel a touch disappointed by it when a smirk teases his lips. “I don’t suppose a goodbye kiss is in order?”
The apprentice’s own lips twitch upwards into a smile as their gaze drops to his mouth. They’ve kissed him many times now, yet they can’t seem to get enough of him. “I believe it is just what the doctor ordered.”
He laughs at that, even as he draws them closer. The leather of his gloves rub against the material of their clothes but they don’t mind. Instead they wind their arms around his shoulders, meeting his lips in a kiss.
They think one kiss will be all they get. They couldn’t be more wrong. Julian moves to break the kiss, only for them to chase after his mouth, desperate for another. He chuckles into the kiss though indulges them all the same, pressing a hand beneath their chin to deepen it.
When they pull back, already regretting the decision, Julian doesn’t allow them to leave for long. And so they kiss the good doctor countless times more, familiarizing themself with the inside of his mouth.
Eventually they have to stop to catch their breaths. Julian leans his forehead against theirs as they pant, mouths bruised and hair mussed.
“That was…” he begins, breathless. “It… sure was something.”
“I’ll see you again, won’t I?” they say once they no longer feel lightheaded.
Julian moves away from them, back towards the alley they had emerged from. He’s sporting a wide grin, the whites of his teeth glinting like the flash of a blade. A blade they had been intimately acquainted with just moments ago. “I’m not going anywhere, don’t worry.” He says their name like a caress. “Whenever you can afford to pull yourself away from your investigation, find me at the Rowdy Raven. I… I’ll be waiting.”
He melts into the shadows of the alleyway, his coat swishing around him as he walks away. They strain their ears until the pounding of his boots on the cobblestones is swallowed up by the city streets.
“Until then, Julian,” they say to themself, touching their lips briefly before they turn to make their way to the palace.
