I was reading Chapter 14: Eternal Knot in bed this morning, and I wanted to see J&E's wedding rings ..
This is a Silver Celtic Eternal Knot ring .. in a black velvet box ...





Ennis opened the box and took out one of the rings, then lifted Jack’s left hand. He smiled as he pushed the ring onto Jack’s fourth finger. “I, Ennis, take you Jack, ta be my husband, ta have and ta hold, for better or worse, in sickness and in health,” he paused, glancing over at the open prayer book next to him, then turned back to Jack, still smiling, “for richer or poorer, and I promise to be faithful ta ya til death do us part.” He held Jack’s hand for a minute, looking at the ring, then looking at Jack.

Jack turned the ring on his finger and looked at Ennis. “You ain’t ever called me yer husband before,” he said softly.

“And I prob’ly ain’t gonna start announcin’ it ta the world,” replied Ennis. “But that’s what ya are. That’s how I think ‘bout ya.”

Jack smiled at him, then looked over at the prayer book. “My turn,” he said, taking the ring and Ennis’s left hand. “I, Jack, take you Ennis, ta be my lovin’ husband, ta have and ta hold, for better or worse, in sickness and in health, for richer or poorer. I promise ta be faithful ta ya til death do us part.”

The ring settled in at the base of Ennis’s finger, looking as comfortable and natural as if he had been wearing it forever. He lifted his eyes to Jack’s. “Do I get ta kiss the groom?” he said.


Lovely and romantic!  :)

I never said, but I actually picture Billy with brown hair.

Those two look sort of sad, though...remember, they are newly happily in love!

Yes, but Billy has just told Scott about his father's reaction when he came out to them, hence the slightly long faces you see in the pic!  ;D

Lucise's cover is one of the most beautiful things I ever saw. It's gong to...somewhere else...soon. I don't know why; I like it even better than my avitvar.

I posted a large version on picture caps ("Some things are too beautiful to wait for. This is Lucise's (approved) cover fro Leslie Nicoll's "Through the Veil of Time")

And I sent one to Miriam, the German girl with almost no English--she has sent me so many beautiful pictures--explaining as simply as possible what it was. (that's "libertyangel")

AND I sent one to Sid Melucci, from Dave Cullen. He's my best friend.

Er...maybe I should have asked permission? I figured, if Lucise didn't want it copied, there would have been a security on it...I guess I still should have asked permission.

This is one Miriam sent me. Or two, if I can get them both in

Oh, the ring is lovely, too, I have two round Celtic things==a pendant and a pin. (Don't have 'em scanned).
