"I truly am a lucky woman to love and be so loved, and to be surrounded by those who would celebrate my happiness. Thank you."
((ooc: Collecting the amazing drabbles people wrote in response to the wedding collab. ;//v//; If you wrote one and I haven’t found it, PM me. <3
I freaking loved reading these, guys. ;//v//; <3 Everyone should.))
"I am a human woman, Greyface, not some work of art on display for men to dream about. I’ll not apologize for my happiness— especially not to cowards."
[[Wedding M!A prompt, also don't mind how bad this is you're like one of my senpai's and I was nervous writing this]] There was a knock on the door of the Sheriff's office before the knocker would let her hand down and wait. The Sheriff couldn't see it yet but the face behind the door was stoic, brow furrowed, stressed, one could even say. It wasn't because of where they were, but what they'd come to say. They were words that she'd never thought she'd be ordered to repeat.
((;//v//; aww I promise I don’t bite sweetie hello. <3))
The bride-to-be ran her hand through her hair, brushing the usually neatly kept brunette mess away from her tired features with a slight frown. Knocks upon her office door were usually fairly unwelcome during her work, as they often brought with them yet another pile of assignments and forms for which she would be responsible. However, in this instance, the frustrated sigh that escaped her lips was for an entirely different reason. She didn’t have time for this. There was much planning yet to do before the ceremony. Caitlyn called to the door, irritation reverberating through each word though she never lifted her gaze from the plans strewn about the mahogany desk, "Another time! I’m rather busy."
((ooc: Hey guys, I know I haven’t posted much art lately. ;//v//; It’s definitely because I’m working on these giveaway prizes! These are hella cropped tiny parts of the whole picture (both of them)— just using them as previews to show you guys what I’ve been up to. u//v//u Top is for Metiterasu, and the bottom is for Letalzero! I’m around all day tomorrow, and will be drawing replies to those M!A asks until I die. As always, thanks for being lovely, lovely sweethearts and patient with me. ;//v//;))
Vi’s night had been sleepless and heartrending. Never before had she worked so hard, but purpose and no small amount of desperation drove her onward. Hurried meetings, evidence gathering, and even witness testimonies—all in one single night. After one final meeting with a judge and members of Parliament, Vi accepted her new badge and all the paperwork she needed, and rushed to the wedding. Four other officers accompanied her.
They were just in time. She kept them in the small event building for just a moment for last-minute preparations, eyeing the gathered crowd. After one last check that her blast-shielding and anti-magic installations were functioning, she drew back her left fist.
"If any unbeliever can show just cause, why they may not lawfully be joined together, let him now speak, or else hereafter for ever hold his peace.” The words came from behind the heavy doors—doors which burst outward with a single blow from Vi’s gauntlet, narrowly missing the last row of guests. She stepped over those doors in full gear and full uniform, sheriff’s badge glimmering at her left breast. Behind her came the four officers, also in full riot gear, and the five of them stalked down the aisle toward the Zaunite and Caitlyn.
"I sure as fuck can," Vi said, her voice ringing out with a confidence she didn’t really feel. She pulled out the warrant, holding it between thumb and forefinger of her massive gauntlet. "Viktor Isidor Stanislav"—she spat the name out like a curse—"as Acting Sheriff, I’m puttin you under arrest for the corruption and manipulation of a prominent Piltovian official and Champion, and attempted subversion of Piltovian authority." She paused to look around at the gathered guests, and the "priest." "Any attempts to stop this arrest from anyone will be considered an act of aggression, and we have full authority to use force in the face of an act of aggression. So if anyone wants to fuck with the law, come at me.”
Two officers circled around to Caitlyn, moving to grab hold of her. Vi didn’t look at her—couldn’t look at her. All she wanted was to take her Sheriff, her partner, her beloved, into her arms—but she was in no state to do so. “As for you, Caitlyn Blakemoore, you’re gonna be taken into custody, too. Parliament’s judged you unfit to stay Sheriff, and it gave me the office until such a time’s you’re deemed fit to rejoin society.”
Turning to Viktor, Vi reached for him. Her palm was the size of his entire upper torso; her grip would be like locking him in a vise—thus the right gauntlet’s name. “You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law…”
The bride was no fool. The tension that fell upon the crowd as the priest’s words boomed through the air left a weighty blanket of silence upon Caitlyn’s shoulders. Her heart was pounding, the dull ache in her chest grew in intensity, but never once did she allow her gaze to fall from her love’s. The comfort she found enveloped in the dark eyes of the unmasked Zaunite was nearly intoxicating, and she clung to it as though it were the only solace she could find in a raging storm. Only a few more moments— the wedding would continue. No, was no fool, the protest their announcement had been met with, the shocked and concerned citizens… their love was not celebrated here as it was in their hearts.
//I will be stepping down from my place in the wedding as I have given the role to hero-of-piltover. Thanks for your understanding!
Good luck dude!
((ooc: Please revise your drabbles and posts to reflect this change. ;//v//; I’ll be reading through and collecting all your things to link to in a post shortly. u//v//u Thank you guys so much for participating! For those who are confused: if you’d like to write a drabble in response to the wedding— please tag it “A Glorious Wedding” and/or with Viktor’s URL or mine. ;//v//;))
((ooc: Due to Viktor-mun and my own schedules practically never matching up during this time, I’m going to extend the M!A through the weekend. ;//v//; If it ends up needing to be longer than a day or two, I’ll continue non-M!A RPs and asks while M!A ones are being finished up. I’ve currently got 9 asks to draw replies to, and the RP for the Ceremony itself will be held throughout tomorrow.
Also, an update for giveaway winners: The rough sketches of almost every prize have been drawn up, and I’m starting to work on them all one-by-one. Once the M!A ends officially, I’ll be posting progress updates to let you all know where it’s at! u//v//u Thank you all for being patient with my derpy inactivity of late. ;//v//;))
