CHEWYSTORIES Forever young. Forever yours.  
Forever young. Forever yours. by chewableproseTitle | Forever young. Forever yours.
Author | chewableprose 
Dedication | tomboytoy, for his wicked skills, encouragement after my last manip and suggestion that I check out the recent Dorian Gray with the very pretty Ben Barnes 
Fandom | Twilight/Dorian Gray, RPS
Pairing | Edward Cullen/Dorian Gray, Robert Pattinson/Ben Barnes
Rating |
Ficlet | The eternally youthful Edward Cullen and Dorian Gray were the kind of beautiful that wrote legend, and yet it was the kind of legend that came complete with a cautionary tale of a curse that forced them to watch anyone they ever loved age and die. And so they travelled alone, keeping to themselves, never staying too long in any one place. That was until, one night in an alley in the streets of London, their lonely paths crossed. It didn’t take them long to recognise in each other a similar self-hatred of their monstrous, soulless existence and brewing, dark desires. What began as random encounters, some decades apart, soon became much more, threatening their very being and the primal urges of their curses with something much stronger: love; and the kind of happiness that being eternally intimate allowed.

Notes | Even after reading the legal (that is, what was posted by Meyer following that nasty leaking business) version of Midnight sun there was still so much about Edward I felt I didn’t know; and in Rob’s brooding portrayal, so much pain. So I guess this manip is about taking away some of that pain, so that he doesn’t have be alone for so long. Dorian could also use a bit of happiness I think, and Edward (being such a man of the world) would have a lot to offer him (he’d also be able to watch over him and his wild-child-sex-with-everyone ways) and, as he doesn’t sleep, would have plenty of time to do lots of grand romantic gestures (such as the rose petals in this).

Inspiration | This is where the RPS comes in. Not only are they both London boys, but Rob and Ben grew up in the same area (I assume both in Barnes) and Ben even used to sing with Rob’s sister. They’ve also been spotted together a lot, at both functions and signings. And of course they would both be able to afford a view like this one (as would Edward/Dorian). So you never know ...

I heart Ben Barnes. That is all.

Hehe, me too, he's super duper lovely, there will definitely be more Ben in the future. Thanks for commenting.

Oh Thanks so much for the dedication, that's so sweet *hug*

About rhis manip. I've got to say, you did an amazing job on it!! Plus I love the background you wrote for it cause it's a possibility with these characters, especially Dorian.

The London view is very nice and you created a very nice atmosphere (maybe a bit too romantic for these characters (but that's only because I picture them as only being able to have a Buffy/Spike-like relationship)).

Love all the details you added to the scene and I love the title you gave it (Forever young... ^^)

Congrats!! You did a very good job and I can't wait to see what you're planning next ;)

You're welcome mister. And I'm so pleased you like it, and the background (they're such tragic figures, I just want them to have a bit of happiness with someone that understands them).

I'm glad you like the atmosphere, but you're right about it being a bit too romantic ... one day I'll create the scene when they first meet in the alley and the sex that followings, it will be very different ... then I could put them side-by-side to show just how much love changed them. How old newspapers and broken bottles is replaced with rose petals and candles *sign*.

Thanks for noticing all the little details in the scene, and I'm glad you like the title, the tagline of Dorian Gray is "Forever young. Forever cursed." so it's a reworking of that ... in a way, I guess I'm suggesting Edward would be able to break that curse, and vice versa.

I'm really excited about the next one now ... me thinks I'll start it very soon.

Yay, thanks. I have seen League of extraordinary gentlemen, however I don't remember Townsend's Dorian, *note to self to rewatch*.

Haha, indeed, especially as a newborn vampire. With little control over his newfound thirst, me thinks Edward has a very naughty past.

Hi there,

In my last comment but one I really meant 'Twilight' not 'Supernatural'. I've gone and confused myself...

Anyway I'm going to delve into your wonderful work in Twilight though it might take me a while as I think there's about 60 or so in this fandom. (Here's hoping it never ends). I'm a big fan of Twilight but mostly of the characters that she created and as a fanfiction author it's the characters that really count although I always try to keep the guts of the story intact when I write. In my story it's a HP crossover with Seth as his lover (here's me hoping Seth makes an appearance...)

Anyway you've started off with a good one as you work your way into his fandom. Incredible detail and an excellent position and as always I love the background ficlet you've created and your reasoning for giving Edward some much needed love in his century of boredom. I could never imagine somebody staying celebate for that long.

Keep up the great work.

Thank you. I'm excited that you're going to be taking a look at my Twilight entries. In many ways they have been the focus of this journal. I certainly hope you enjoy the journey (this one is more of a one off ... a very early manip from me).

As always, thanks for the words of support.

This is really hot! I was so in love with Barnes in the movie. The director even hinted at some gay BDSM action in one of the revelries!

Thanks so much. This was one of my earliest manips, so it's nice to receive such kind feedback on it :).
