Title: I Wept Not Outtake - After the Battle
Fandom: Twilight
Pairing: Jasper/Peter/Maria
Warnings: language, graphic sexuality
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 2,437
Disclaimer: All publicly recognizable characters, settings, etc. are the property of their respective owners. No copyright infringement is intended.
Summary: A little smut outtake set prior to the events of I Wept Not during Jasper’s days in Maria’s army. AU, M/M/F.
Author's Note: This outtake was written as a birthday gift, but never posted to FFn. I wasn't entirely happy with it because I felt it didn't have the emotional resonance I wanted. I had planned to eventually expand it with more of Peter's background and how he came to be in Maria's army. Obviously, that never happened, but I decided to post it here for anyone who might have missed it the first time around. Special thanks, as always, to my wonderful friend and beta, [livejournal.com profile] otta_ff.

Chapter 23 | Masterpost


"There where the waves shatter on the restless rocks
the clear light bursts and enacts its rose,
and the sea-circle shrinks to a cluster of buds,
to one drop of blue salt, falling.

O bright magnolia bursting in the foam,
magnetic transient whose death blooms
and vanishes-being, nothingness-forever:
broken salt, dazzling lurch of the sea.

You & I, Love, together we ratify the silence,
while the sea destroys its perpetual statues,
collapses its towers of wild speed and whiteness:

because in the weavings of those invisible fabrics,
galloping water, incessant sand,
we make the only permanent tenderness."


- Pablo Neruda, "Sonnet IX"

"Night is the shadow of my father's hands
setting the clock for resurrection.
Or is it the clock unraveled, the numbers flown?
There's nothing that hasn't found home there:
discarded wings, lost shoes, a broken alphabet.
Everything but sleep. And night begins
with the first beheading
of the jasmine."


-Li-Young Lee, "Pillow", l. 15-22

"I have embalmed the days,
Even the sacred moments when we played,
All innocent of passion, uncorrupt,
At noon and evening in the flame-heart's shade.
We were so happy, happy, I remember,
Beneath the poinsettia's red in warm December."

"My tears are like the quiet drift
Of petals from some magic rose;
And all my grief flows from the rift
Of unremembered skies and snows.

I think, that if I touched the earth,
It would crumble;
It is so sad and beautiful,
So tremulously like a dream."

"Indelicate is he who loathes
The aspect of his fleshy clothes, -
The flying fabric stitched on bone,
The vesture of the skeleton,
The garment neither fur nor hair,
The cloak of evil and despair,
The veil long violated by
Caresses of the hand and eye.
Yet such is my unseemliness:
I hate my epidermal dress,
The savage blood's obscenity,
The rags of my anatomy,
And willingly would I dispense
With false accouterments of sense,
To sleep immodestly, a most
Incarnadine and carnal ghost."

"Once riding in old Baltimore,
Heart-filled, head-filled with glee;
I saw a Baltimorean
Keep looking straight at me.

Now I was eight and very small,
And he was no whit bigger,
And so I smiled, but he poked out
His tongue, and called me, "Nigger."

I saw the whole of Baltimore
From May until December;
Of all the things that happened there
That's all that I remember."

"In a dark time, the eye begins to see,
I meet my shadow in the deepening shade;
I hear my echo in the echoing wood—
A lord of nature weeping to a tree.
I live between the heron and the wren,
Beasts of the hill and serpents of the den."

Dare frame thy fearful symmetry?"

"I will give you a poem when you wake tomorrow.
It will be a peaceful poem.
It won't make you sad.

It was not written by myself alone.
I cannot lay claim to it.
I found it in your body.
In your smile I found it."
