Di’s WIP Wednesday
Thank you for the tag @you-remind-me-of-the-babe and @angelsfalling16 💙💙💙
My goal is to write a total of three fics that are in the same timeline as I Choose You (my last year's COBB) and By the Sea (two first parts of I Choose You series), plus one that is happening after the events of Talk to Me (final part for now.)
Not to spoil anything but in I Choose You fic (my second snowbaz wedding fic 🥺🥺🥺), Simon and Fiona become best bros. That's sort of my go-to thing while writing. I live for them getting close and care for each other. 😭💙
That's why I really wanted to write more of the bonding between Simon and Fiona (who is my soulmate and deserves the best things, in this case an extra nephew to antagonise 🥰)
Today’s snippet is set in the first chapters of I Choose You. Which was one of the hardest fics for me to write, but I had the most supportive artist ever Roz @knittininja who is just amazing and got me through every crisis. 💙🥰💙🥰💙
Sorry this was super long, I'm just so excited. 🤩🤩🤩 Here's the snippet:
“You proposed to Basil because he was crying?” asks Fiona and I spill tea all over me. (Good thing it's just tea and not whatever she offered me at first, or I’d smell like a drunken sailor on the way home.)
“Not because,” I correct her, wondering where she's got the idea in the first place, or if Baz’s aunt is just messing with me. Would not put it past her, “while Baz was crying. There's a difference.”
A big one too. A huge difference is what I want to say but Fiona is a tiny woman and I'm terrified to say “huge” to her face in case she takes offence and kills me.
She's tiny yet strong. I'm pretty sure she's stronger than me. Maybe even Baz and he’s got vampire strengths.
“Oh relax, Chosen One,” she waves her hand in front of my face, (not in a threatening way, I don't think). “This isn't criticism.”
“It isn’t?” I almost drop the whole cup in shock.
That'd be the first. I feel like Fiona Pitch is the definition of someone who always criticises people. Me especially.
“Of course not. You proposing to my nephew is probably one of the few things that could make him stop crying.”
“Again, not why I proposed,” I snap despite my better judgment because I'm getting a bit worked up now.
I don't want Fiona to walk around telling people I proposed to Baz, the person I love the most, because he was crying.
“I disagree,” mutters Baz’s aunt, taking another sip of something that is in a teacup but most definitely isn't tea.
