This is the companion/continuation of Golden Perfection. I suggest reading that first, but it isn't necessary.

Title: Hidden Devotion
Author: The Serpent Guardian
Fandom: Anita Blake: Vampire Hunter
Disclaimer: I don’t own the boys, Laurell K. Hamilton does. I’m making no money, don’t sue.
Rating: PG
Warnings: Sap. Implied slash lemon. Though a lack of clothes isn’t even mentioned, let alone anything else.
Pairing: Jean Claude/Asher
Word Count: 100
Author’s Note: This is a companion to Golden Perfection. This should have been written quite a while ago, but I got distracted.

Hidden Devotion

Jean Claude was Belle Morte’s, one of the few gifted her ardeur -- pain and need. He had learned to be …secretive of his devotions.

When Asher found himself upon chocolate silk, he felt more love for Jean Claude then ever before. Nobody questioned his choice of bedding, but Asher knew -- it was how he showed his devotion. This was ‘I love you,’ more than any words.

Only a handful of people had sheets: Julianna’s was a rich cream, Anita crimson, Jason cobalt. Asher’s was a frosty blue-white, now a warm chocolate.

A slight tilt revealed his scars.

He wouldn’t hide.

Why am I always the first to comment these things?

Ah. I'm sorry I wasn't very helpful with this one, you either hit or miss with a drabble and I honestly think you hit, despite my total lack of knowledge on this topic.

I hope I'm giving you more help with PB, and I hope I can read it soon!

Because you're good at keeping up with these? And no else is?

That's alright, I finished it the day you left, I figured you wouldn't get to it, so I just posted it. Thanks!

I'm working on it. ^_^

*blinks once slowly* *blinks again*
eeeeeeeeeee, AB luvrah! nicole found an AB luvrah!
hi, you win.

i think the first time i was ever angry about any of anita's hangups was when she freaked over JC/Asher, which, sadly, wasn't even happening. [i read the books backwards from Incubus Dreams.] ...i talk crayzah odd and preppy when i'm hyper. i offer my apologies. <3 <3

but, seriously, i love the emphasis on sheets. perfect symbol to use for jean-claude's affections. above all, i love you, because, hi, Anitaverse plus JC/Asher = TOTAL WINNAGE. [Nathaniel will alwaysalways be my favourite, but sometimes i really really wish she'd written a mini about Asher instead of Micah.]

*smiles* More of an Asher lover. All those scars... *licks lips* Ignore the puddles of drool.

You do know that there is an actual functioning archive for AB fics, don't you? Pomme De Sang

The library only had some of them, and I didn't have the money to buy them: I started from Obsidian Butterfly, Circus of the Damned, Lunatic Cafe, Bloody Bones, The Killing Dance, Narcissus In Chains, Guilty Pleasures, Laughing Corpse, Blue Moon, Burnt Offerings, Cerulean Sins, Incubus Dreams, and I haven't read Micah yet. I bought it, but I want to finish the AB fic I'm working on first. More JC/Asher. With a little Julianna and Anita.

Most of Anita's hangups don't bother me, especially as they are becoming fewer. I just wish that the books either weren't written in Anita's POV or one was done from someone else's POV. Anita does have a limited view, and a limited understanding. Which annoys the hell out of me. But it's unavoidable. It's part of human nature.

No apologies needed. I get like that sometimes too.

Thanks, I spent a long time trying to figure out how Jean Claude would express his love in Belle Morte's court. Sheets were the only thing I could really come up with that wouldn't be overly commented on, and wouldn't attract a lot of attention.

You can't loose with JC/Asher. (OMG! If she wrote one about Asher... *drools* I only have two issues with him. One, he's blond. But it's more gold, so I'll ignore it. Two, he's French. Which I can mostly look beyond. I like Micah, and I'm glad we get to learn more about him. Anita doesn't give him nearly enough attention or understanding.)

I know, but it took me... two years? before I even went to ff.net instead of just slinking around livejournal. And it was less that, and more of all the people that have suddenly become "ZOMG. IT'S TOO MUCH SEX." 'Kay, when I was younger I did this miraculous thing called skip those pages. Not hard. So, it's nice to see someone that likes them as they are, or, at least enough to write fanficition about them.

I work at my library [yay grants from the city!], but they had all the books. Now they just get the new ones a little... faster? *blinks innocently*

It's weird though, as her hangups dissapear, it's like she becomes less of a person? She's just a goal now. "Get through it and don't let anyone die." But nothing bad happens to her and no one else dies, so it's not suprising/horrifying like it used to be. Like, I know that's horrible to say, but, I don't know?

It would be interesting if LKH pulled a Kelley Armstrong and switched characters every two books or so. Or did a novella in someone else's POV.

Would you mind horribly terribly if I added you?

See, I was different. It wasn't until recent years that I figured out ff.net, and only this year that I've gotten the hang of livejournal. But I read so much, in so many fandoms that I've been to practically every major archive and most of the personal pages. I'm a slashslut. The cure? Never ending supply of slash.

Yeah, I did that too, skip the pages I couldn't read for whatever reason. Though I do understand the too much sex thing. I didn't start reading for sex or romance, I started reading for the action. And vamps? Just a bonus.

You work at a library? *blinks* I'm going to college to become a librarian! I'd be really happy if my public library got new books sooner too.

I never thought of that. Anita just being a goal... Yeah, I can understand that. And it isn't so much her hangups disappearing as she has to look beyond them to get the job done. ...Which does make her seem less a person than a goal. Personally, I think it's lack of character depth. Sure there's character development, but not depth. I get it, it's like she's untouched. She has to do all this shit, but nothing bad happens. Like she's living in a twisted fairytale.

I'd be so happy if she did that! Preferably from one of the vamps' view.

Go ahead and add me! I feel all special now. Though proceed through my lj with caution. (and doesn't that sound like something that should be in a bad horror film?) As it's full of scattered thoughts, random posts, and other strange things. (and this doesn't help...) Mind if I add you back?

ah, livejournal has been my lifeline since i was a teensy zomglifeisawful thing of eleven years.

i think i'm literally addicted to m/r. poor hannah has to listen to me whine about it all the time. if someone doesn't update on a certain day. uh oh. >.<

Anything that's not cliche and ridiculous that has wereanythings in it? ZOMG SO MINE. <333

:) My library just built a new teen center. So they got a grant to hire 14-18 year olds to show that teens can stand entering the building work from January to May. Small stint, but cute and the library is my life. I want to get a degree in photography [ee. <333], but more and more I'm thinking I'm going to actually end up getting a Library Science degree.

Yeah, but it's like it doesn't cost her anything to look beyond them anymore. "NO THIS IS SO WRONG! oh, look, he's gorgeous. wait, it's over, what?" That wasn't particularly fair of me, but, still. =/ Lack of character depth sounds right. I don't know if you read LKH's blog, but apparently she promised Anita she wouldn't kill anyone else off, but, knowing that just kind of hallows everything bad that happens to her.

Yayza. :) Of course I don't mind, sillyface. <3 Beware of mine as well. I'll get really, really happy and then really, really not happy and it just gets kind of bad. And there's usually an overabundance of pictures.
