Together by Kelaiah Together by Kelaiah
Request by warrior4. I hope you like this, mate!

I agonized over this request, drawing every possible angle and style for it, and I STILL don't like it! But warrior4 told me just to draw it and post it. So finally, here it is.

This is a scene from warrior4's fanfic "Winter's Flowers" [link] . It takes place in the chapter "Together" (hence this pic's title) [link] .

I hope everyone enjoys this more than I do.

Welp, God bless, everyone!

~Kel :)

P.S. I don't own Redwall, Noonvale, Martin, Rose, or anything else! I can hardly say I own their outfits or the arch of roses, because they were all warrior4's idea, so, meh.

Yeah, this is what should have happened... and I know there are theories about Rose's secret survival, but they're just that; theories. It's not the same.

(The rose is a nice touch, BTW. Really adds that Redwall feel)

Well, BJ kind've wrote himself into a corner from the start anyway: he wrote "Mossflower" and "Redwall" long before "Martin the Warrior", so Rose more or less *had* to die. But hey, they're together in death, so to speak. Martin's spirit resides at the abbey, and it seems like Rose's spirit is there too through the Late Rose bush.

(Oh and thanks. :giggle:)

True, but that doesn't make it any easier... especially when I finally read the book. I knew beforehand that Rose was going to die, but... that didn't make it any less heart-wrenching. I mean, I think that's one of the many things that makes it so re-readable. You know she'll die, and yet, it adds that air of sadness when you see her alive and well, happy and beautiful, before all of that...

I saw the cartoon series before I read the book, and had no prior knowledge of the series. So you can beat I was *THUNDERSTRUCK* when Rose died. I was like, "She died? Rose DIED?! How could they make her die, isn't this a KID'S SHOW?!"

*sigh* But yeah... the part where Brome blames himself for Rose's death made me choke up quite a bit.

I know... the poor fellow. But Martin the Warrior WAS a little more 'on the edge' than the other books and even the other cartoon seasons. Feldoh goes utterly insane before he meets his fate, so many good souls lost, and that stabbing sequence... though I miss the Captain Clogg thing. I mean, THAT was sad in a "why do I care?" sort of way, watching the old fellow lose himself piece by piece

Yeah, it was a pretty dark book. ^^ Certainly explains why Martin was so desperate to get away. Heck, there were even some evil woodlanders: the pigmy shrews took Martin & Co captive and held them as slaves for a while; the Gawtrybe squirrels tried to KILL them; and Aggril the hedgehog attacked and then drugged them. ^^

me wrapping up wedding:  Do you, Martin the warrior take Rose as your bride?  (muttering under my breath)....say "I do" before she comes to her senses.............

Martin: I do....

me:  And do you Rose of Noonvale take Martin as your husband?

Rose:  I do....

me: Then by the power invested in me by the Dinosaurian Empire, I hereby declare you husband and bride, you may now kiss.........  Wait a sec!  Almost forgot the rings!  Here you go Martin!  (gives rings to Martin)

Martin:  Thanks, wait?  Cal these are onion rings, were are the wedding rings?

me: well, lets see.......... last time I saw them I was at the snack table were I got the onion rings so............... oh no.

Martin: (face palm) are you kidding me?!

me:  No problem, I still have them right?!  (opens mouth and puts arm all the way to elbow into gullet)

Martin: No, just, No.

me:  I got them!  Let's continue!

Rose: EEEEEEEWWWWWWWW!  No way I'm wearing that!

(crowd starts leaving) 

Basil: Well then. that went as good as expected, wot!

Cluny:  So not worth an hours wait!

Vitch:  I'm gonna go raid the snack table again, you coming Mattimeo?

Mattimeo: I won't eat a single morsel tonight after that!

Cheek: Guys, who invited the two other big Dino's who are devouring the Snack table?

Mattimeo: Two other Dino's?

Vitch:  I think the raptor said summat about his officers demanding to see the wedding or else they would tear him in half or take his rations or something like that.

me: right you kiddies are!  That's Captain Crage the Allosaurus and First class private Scraggle the Ceratosaurus, two of my superior officers.

Scraggle talking over food: And don't you forget it!

Cheek: oh Great, now their eating the table!

me: that's nothing, one time when they were on the Human Earth at this diner the waitresses stopped serving their food, it was a massacre!  

Cheek: wow.

Mattimeo: fearsome.

Vitch: cool.

me: all three sorta actually!

Badrang leaving wedding with Truman Clogg: last Time I ever let you talk me into attending a wedding, two hours of my life I will never get back, thank you!

Clogg: what?  This was special occasion!  And the Raptor got the rings back so it's not in vain!  Even if Martin and Rose didn't wear them!

No she's not, she just doesn't have "hair" as opposed to "headfur".

Martin and Rose look good here! I always like the speculative fan fictions that the fans invent. Sometimes it's interesting (the fan fiction speculations, that is).
