Resplendent

She stands in the middle of her room, resplendent in full Court garb - dark green silks, her vest flaring out and falling to midcalf. Her hair is uncharacteristically down, held back from her face by jeweled barrettes. She examines one gauntlet as the servant laces the other one on - not the usual carved-leather gauntlets, but the full-formal silver ones... laced not with the usual green, but with white.

Funereal white.

She looks up at him, pale and troubled. "I didn't mean to," she says.

He has no response, nothing to give.

And she knows that it doesn't matter whether she meant to or not. She knows that he's dead. She knows that it is her fault.

And he watches the resolve settle into her.

He watches her learn, just a little too late.

Another problem: I keep getting these *great* scenes sparked in my head... that I can't write, because they are tremendously spoileriffic. "Redemption" would kick ass, I tell you.
