Ficlet | As they kissed and it began to rain, the fear in Jacob’s thoughts drew the pack in closer, encircling the pair, preparing to pounce. This doesn’t concern you, he said silently to his brothers, leave us be, he commended as their natural alpha. And so the pack stopped among the trees near where they stood. Now close enough to be seen by the others, Jacob broke off the kiss. “What’s the matter,” Edward said, reaching to touch him. Jacob shrugged him off, turning away, “you should leave,” he said, “they can see us.” “Are you ashamed of us?” Edward said, remembering how hard Jacob had worked to keep his feelings secret during Edward’s trip to the reservation. “You know I’m not,” he said. “But right now nobody but us knows, if you stay here there’s no taking it back.” Jacob was clearly suffering from his words, his tears mixing with the rain, “they’ll know, they’re listening,” he said. “Let them listen, it doesn’t matter.” “Doesn’t it?” Jacob said, his speech stuttered, “you’re married, you have a daughter, do they not matter?” “Of course they do.” “Bella is my friend, for God’s sake Edward, she died for you.” Jacob went to leave, “please don’t,” Edward said, “I couldn’t bear it if you left.” “I have to, you need to get used to being without me.” Desperate. Not knowing what to do, how to show Jacob what he meant, Edward removed all his clothes, standing naked before Jacob, the rays of the setting sun refracting crystal beams of light off his skin, the pack watching from the trees, “there is no without you,” he said. “There is no choosing who you love, you would know this more than anyone. We are meant to be mortal enemies, and yet I love you more than any other creature. But this is all I have to offer, flesh without soul, me. I cannot live a lie, and I would sooner die than try. If you won’t have me, you’ll need to destroy me, it’s the humane action.” Looking in his eyes, which were like honey on toast, “well we can’t have that,” Jacob said, “come here,” taking Edward by the waist and pulling him in close. “Let’s go inside,” Jacob whispered in his ear. They didn’t make love that night, they held each other. The hot and cold of their bodies equalised when they embraced. Jacob stayed awake until morning, then, as the sun’s rays began reflecting off Edward’s skin, he feel asleep in his arms. Holding Jake against his naked skin, Edward kissed his neck and said, “dream of us, my love,” the pack still outside, unable to break Jacob’s order for them to keep their distance.

Notes | Here Jacob expresses his guilt over the pain he and Edward being together would cause Bella. It’s certainly a turning point in the series as they both commit to each other, and to no longer hiding their love from those around them. Their not having sex was important too, their intimacy and love for each other transcends a need for penetration, which is a while off yet — although just like in the canon, is something that will happen. This entry was cross-posted to jakeward, twilight_slash, rpattz_taycob, twi_cwc and twilightmanips, which is why it is not friends locked. If you’re visiting from one of these communities and you’d like to see more of my manips, comment on my friends only entry, but be warned, much of my work is sexually explicit.

So... 'there is no without you' is pretty much my favorite line of this entire series. I loved the heart to heart they had with each other. And of course I love the manip along with it, it looks like Edward's in the middle of kissing Jacob as he's saying 'dream of us' which is pretty awesome.
Love seeing these updates!
chewableprose on November 20th, 2010 08:33 am (UTC)
Thanks so much, yeah, that line felt pretty right for me too :). Indeed he is kissing him. Glad you liked it. Thanks for commenting.

Very nice. Love the pack outside the window!
chewableprose on November 20th, 2010 08:35 am (UTC)
Cheers, it's very voyeuristic isn't it? Move over Rear window ;).
tomboytoy on November 20th, 2010 10:33 am (UTC)
This is very sweet and tender!! And it's funny but when you look at Edward's face in the small version or in the big one, you don't have the same thing. In the small one it seems that he is crying whereas in the big one it appears that it's a sparkle on his cheek and not a tear.

Anyway, great job. Jacob is just so cute there ;-p
chewableprose on November 20th, 2010 11:49 am (UTC)
Ha! I didn't notice that, that's pretty cool. And sleeping Jacob is adorable. I'm glad you found it sweet and tender, that's what I was hoping for :). As always, thanks for the feedback.

Beautifully done. Jake is wonderful, trying to be cautious with his heart and with Edwards. Yay
chewableprose on November 20th, 2010 01:31 pm (UTC)
I know, isn't he? He's such a great guy. Thanks for your nice words, more coming soon.
ddhobsessed on November 20th, 2010 05:11 pm (UTC)

Thank you so much, I'm glad you think so. More on the way, thanks for commenting.

this made my day even better
loved how you have the pack
chewableprose on November 21st, 2010 05:47 am (UTC)
Thanks Mia, thrilled to hear it (I love being able to improve people's day with my work), glad you liked the pack's involvement too. More soon.

cant wait
starry_nights88 on November 21st, 2010 07:34 pm (UTC)
Once again I have to say how much I love your pacing. A lot of people would just pushing them together into sex right off the back, not really thinking that a relationship is deeper than just the physical parts.

That and, personally, I think it'd fun to torture fans. Making them wait for the smut, but then again, when it finally does happen...it's like...an epic event. You know?
chewableprose on November 22nd, 2010 01:16 am (UTC)
I whole-heartedly agree, I believe what makes Twilight work as a series is its successful and ongoing denial of sex (sadly I think Meyer could have squeezed in a few more books before Breaking Dawn) on one hand you want them to have sex, but on the other, you're loving that they are that into each other without having had sex. Why can't the same work in fan texts? And you're right also in saying that by withholding Edward and Jacob's lovemaking, when the event does come, it will be much more meaningful. Thanks for your kind words, more soon.
starry_nights88 on November 22nd, 2010 06:48 am (UTC)
I agreed.

That was an interesting part of the books, feeling the characters' raising sexual tension and then finally getting there. I think we all were like finally!! xP

It's just that...a lot of author's rush that aspect of the relationship and don't stop to think about the reprecussions on their work. If the sex happened in the first chapter of my fanfiction(s), well, I wouldn't have a story...now, would I? xD

That and I think people like an emotional aspect more the physical, having emotions with the smut makes it almost as good as the real thing. Where as just having the smut...makes it redundant and bland.

o.o *blinks*

Sorry for running on to there, I get into aspects of fanfiction sometimes. *shakes head*
chewableprose on November 22nd, 2010 07:04 am (UTC)
Don't apologise, I think it's great, I love delving into fandom :). And you're right, often it is rushed, or even starts with the sex, I think there's a lot to be said for build up (after all, without it, you don't have a climax).
starry_nights88 on November 22nd, 2010 04:26 pm (UTC)
I suppose it could be said that writing good fanfiction is the same as reading smut. You've got to have the teasing and foreplay to make the event that much more memorable.
chewableprose on November 23rd, 2010 01:47 am (UTC)
Completely agree *nods head*.
duchesscarml on December 6th, 2010 04:47 pm (UTC)
OMG! That was soo sweet. Is it bad that I have no sympathy for Bella?? Renesmee. he's. but not Bella. This is going so great! Can't wait for the next one.
chewableprose on December 6th, 2010 10:47 pm (UTC)
Thanks Duchess. I have no sympathy for Bella either, because the boys are just meant for each other, and there's just no stopping love. The next part in this series will be up soon.
leoingenue on January 13th, 2011 10:44 pm (UTC)
The 'Sparkle' is cracking me up! Great manip of course but had to share that!
chewableprose on January 14th, 2011 01:16 am (UTC)
Indeed, he's very sparkly, hehe. Thanks for the comment.

If only men came this way
I have to say this is getting the romantic vibe that the series does the idea of a man loving more then the churning of his cock. But fuck every man I have actually loved is never like me there normally rough, arrogant , man whore's. But it seems there the only ones who are ever masculine enough to really turn me on. I don't like the guys that act gay. I only like the ones that aren't and sure there's been some that loved me enough even when I come clean that am not girl they take it better then most. But do you know how long I have searched to find one that doesn't have some porn infested fetish or need to always just stick there dick right in me. Sometimes I feel am like a dude that loves cock but hates men just because of how they are. And like Carrie Bradshaw I have my MR big and god help me I love him to the point of actually coming out but I just don't see how he and I could make it work hes lives nearly 3000 miles away and now he told me he got married. And so now am trying the rebound thing. I mean god help me I always have to rebound guy. But he still wants me to pretend to be a girl even though I have dropped the am 100 percent cock hint to him. But am so afraid of emotional break down having no one will cause me to have I just do it. Does that make any sense. OMFG do ya see what you romantic art is doing to me.
marki_fungi on January 13th, 2013 10:26 pm (UTC)
Very good. I like the idea of Edward going out on a limb and I love how you've added in the pack. We don't know yet how they'll react and I look forward to finding out.

Great work as always.
chewableprose on January 15th, 2013 02:18 am (UTC)
Thank you, and yes, I see Edward as a massive romantic at heart :).
supahsmith942 on January 3rd, 2014 01:51 am (UTC)
It's really great how you've given us some backstory on their feeling and emotions and not just showed us erotic images. It gives the story an actual real life perception :)
yoyomeng63 on March 22nd, 2014 07:17 pm (UTC)
I find this one really cute!
