Robin Hood Ficlet: Again

Title: Again
Author: corrielle 
Rating: PG-13
Character: Guy
Disclaimer: Robin Hood belongs to legend, this version belongs to the BBC.
Notes: This is what happens when I watch way too many angsty Guy-centric music videos. Set during "A Dangerous Deal."
Warnings: Discussion of canon character death.


Marian, too, had been light in his arms, her blood the same deep shade of red.

In the Holy Land, he had wanted to scream at Death to bring her back, to beg that he might take her place, and the same words rose in his throat now.

Again, he was helpless.  There was no undoing what had been done.
 
He had held Marian just as gently, lowering her to the ground in the moments before he fled.

Her eyes, too, had been wide with pain, and filled with the knowledge of her own death.

But in one way, Meg was different.

She smiled up at him as she died.

Makes me tear up, not many fics do that. Well, I consider myself honored, then. I'm glad you liked it.

Yeah... I broke MY heart a little when I realized that THAT was the line that needed to end it.

It's been a day of copious tears reading this ficlet and "A Measure of Peace". So very moving!

Beautiful! You spoil us with it, and how can we mind? Youtube videos can be very good for inspiration. ♥

Awww... thank you. I think the RH fandom deserves lots of spoiling. It's awesome. And hurrah for youtube! I need to go looking for ideas there more often...

Thanks! So glad you liked the title... it took me as long to figure out what to CALL this as it did to write it.

Oh wow! That last line: so chilling and haunting, yet so sad and just real emotion there. Loved this! Gorgeously written.

Thank you. I'm glad you like the last line... it killed me a bit to write it.
