(he who had never wanted harm to come to anyone) (aside from a few people who had dared to malign his perfect looks) )
Proposing was not on Jesiah's list of things to do, and as it turns out, accepting a proposal wasn't on Racquel's. At least, not the way that Jessie delivered it, which might not have been the best method imaginable. He'll have to do a little better if he doesn't want to get disowned.
Contains Jessie/Racquel, so of course it's pre-canon. Shocking discussion of extramarital funny business and the specter of single motherhood. Written for a [community profile] fic_promptly challenge to the theme "Forced Marriage", so... of course Billy's parents leapt to mind.

.shared moments.
Aside from a swept floor and mended pews, this church was as the passage of time had left it: perfect, in her eyes. )

.playing dress-up.
You were drowning yourself in those big cardigans and shapeless skirts. )

It was not a beautiful event. In fact, there wasn't really anywhere that he could look that didn't pain him. )
