discreetly amused
"An thou wert asked, wouldst thou take a foul woman to be fair in thy bed at night, or fair by thy side in the day, how shouldst thou answer? Wouldst thou get thy pleasure of her and be shamed by her appearance, or let her look lovely to they who see her and ill-favoured in thy bed?"

If Ragnelle looks amused by all of this, it's because she is.

17th-Jun-2010 03:11 am (UTC) - I KNEW it was this journal! \o/
"You mean a man must choose? What a terrible fate to bestow!"

The voice comes from behind her, as he stepped down from his horse, a broad unseen smile on his face. Gracious, who could this be?
17th-Jun-2010 03:20 am (UTC) - because I make horrible jokes in the usernames of my journals? >_>
"O, my lord, are you not man enough yourself to bear it?"
17th-Jun-2010 03:44 am (UTC) - It's entirely possible! *Totally didn't spend half an hour searching through journalnames >_>*
He'll be coming up and making a play to wrap his arms around her waist, then, taking a few moments to savour the smell of her hair.

"Hardly. What terrible things these choices are! I daresay my lady would handle such riddlery with far greater grace; 'tis in her nature, you know." Hmm, dare he try for a kiss behind her ear? He DARES!
17th-Jun-2010 04:05 am (UTC) - >_> I usually search by interests when I want to do that.
Ragnelle cuddles into his arms easily; she always seems like she was made to fit there.

"Mary, you leave the choice to me?"
17th-Jun-2010 05:00 am (UTC) - >_> I may have used the wrong alternate-spelling when I did that yesterday.(What are we lookiing at)
That's something he keeps on noticing anew, and it never fails to make him feel better.

"That depends. Dost promise to choose well?" A teasing note in his voice, now.
17th-Jun-2010 05:06 am (UTC) - oh, that'll do it.
"All of me is well, an you have eyes to see it," amused: she's purposely not using the intimate, to tease him back. She reaches up and tucks a bit of his hair back behind his ear. "Dost trust me?"
17th-Jun-2010 05:21 am (UTC) - Alas, so many names to choose from!
"And so well worth the seeing..." He murmured, lips turning up once more.

And a gentle, patently fake sigh is made right by her ear. "Well, in lieu of Agravaine's suggestion to take one woman for each time, I dast trust... with hand, and heart, and eternal soul."

With any luck, the lady won't get a better offer anytime soon... But let's keep our fingers crossed, just in case.
18th-Jun-2010 03:52 am (UTC)
The lady hasn't had any offers she cares to betray her husband over. Not in this universe, anyway.

"A fair answer, my lord," softly. "As fair as I shall ever be."
19th-Jun-2010 12:37 am (UTC)
And thank goodness for that!

"All too debatable, beloved." He smiles, coming around to look her in the eye. "Were your beauty just skin deep, I daresay such might be true... but your gentle and healing heart bespeaks a lady fairer than any words I could ever utter."

So yeah, Hubby's convinced that HE got the better part of the bargain, and good luck trying to convince him otherwise.
20th-Jun-2010 02:03 am (UTC)
Ragnelle laughs and outright kisses him at that. "Mary, thy tongue at any rate is sweeter than aught I've tasted. Do thou grace me with it."
20th-Jun-2010 02:37 am (UTC)
Oh, he'll kiss back with a will!

"With any luck, my lady, that will ever be the case... Heaven could hold no offer sweeter." He'll pull her close in again, as if the proper place for her were ever in his embrace.
20th-Jun-2010 02:58 am (UTC)
Her smile is warm, and a little satisfied, like a particularly contented cat, and the fact that her frame is quite full and curvy means than she makes an extremely gratifying armful. "Such gallant words!"
20th-Jun-2010 04:25 am (UTC)
Did he mention that she's cute when she's smug? Because she totally IS! And since he's so pleased with holding her, clearly this means he should demonstrate his satisfaction with a kiss to her neck. (This may require stooping a little.) "Such an appreciative listener!"
20th-Jun-2010 04:33 am (UTC)
Ragnelle laughs. "Wilt come out of the public way, my lord?"
20th-Jun-2010 04:40 am (UTC)
"Wherever you might crook the finger, my lady..." It's a happy Gawaine that follows his wife away from all the fiendish Peeping Toms of the Nexus. (Besides, there's a great view from back here...)
20th-Jun-2010 04:47 am (UTC)
Naturally the Nexus is full of them. Also naturally, Ragnelle's connexion with trees allows her quickly to find an uninhabited area, a copse of sycamore trees circling a small clearing floored with pillowy moss. Finding placed to have sex outdoors is pretty much her superpower, so this should really come as no surprise, and she dimples at him once she's pushed a low-hanging branch aside to make way for him.

(Thread continued here)
17th-Jun-2010 06:22 pm (UTC)
"That really ought to be the lady's choice madame." Penny nodded smiling. "No decent sort of man would have it any other way."
18th-Jun-2010 02:47 am (UTC)
"Even so?"
18th-Jun-2010 06:55 pm (UTC)
Penny thinks for a moment and then smiles. "Well what woman would rather not have the choice to go her own way to be honest?"
18th-Jun-2010 07:37 pm (UTC)
"A fair answer, i'faith!"
18th-Jun-2010 04:42 am (UTC)
It seems to me, humble and lowly though I am to be talking to so grand lady on such a matter, that at the meat of it, you ask if a man would first please himself or his friends. What matters more: his pleasure or his esteem. I'll choose the former, for there's no shame so great as a a man living and dying on the whims of others. If they think a woman should shame me by her look, to the devil with'em! One might and admire and bask in the radiance of a Venus of fair proportion and pale complexion, but how good is thy love if it is cold brilliance; what man has ever been content to love an idol merely made of stone? No, I'd rather my lady warm me in my bed than shine by my side - that's the rarer, fairer jewel.
20th-Jun-2010 02:18 am (UTC)
"Well-said, sirrah, thou hast a good and sensible way of thinking."
20th-Jun-2010 04:38 am (UTC)
I would rather good sense outweigh my vanity, lady. Prithee, How came you by such a question? A flight of fancy?
20th-Jun-2010 04:53 am (UTC)
"Nay, faith, 'twas mine own fate to bend my future to the answer."
20th-Jun-2010 05:05 am (UTC)
Truly? Needst thou bend much toward the one or the other? Thou wants not for thy fairness nor, I would scarce believe, thy art.
20th-Jun-2010 05:23 am (UTC)
She laughs. "Mary, this is not the sole face I have worn."
20th-Jun-2010 12:15 pm (UTC)
Normally silent on such issues, the Redeemer remarked quietly, "Some things can be learned."
21st-Jun-2010 02:55 am (UTC)
"I'faith, is that an answer?"
21st-Jun-2010 03:09 pm (UTC)
Again hesitant and careful with his words. "Only assessing the facts."
21st-Jun-2010 08:25 pm (UTC)
"'Tis a riddle, mary, you must guess at it."
