Dear Everyone,

As this is the last chapter, I have copious notes.

At the top right is a photograph of the upper church of the Basilica of St. Francis in Assisi, where the wedding Mass took place.

At lower right is Lauri Blank's painting At Last, which was the inspiration behind Edward's wedding gift to Bella.

Maria Visconti suggested the house that Edward hires for the wedding guests. A link to pictures of the castle can be found here:

The villa Edward purchases in Umbria near Todi can be found here:

There is a lot of music this week. From the meadow:

Diana Krall performing The Look of Love:

From the wedding:

J.S. Bach’s Sheep may safely graze:

Bach's Jesu, Joy of Man’s desiring:

Bach's Sleepers, awake!:

If you're looking for something new to read, you can check my list of favourites under my Fan Fiction profile.

Also, I'd like to recommend "With all my Strength" by Rhi Aeffyll. This story is like no other in the fandom. It's a supernatural story about Edward the vampire, except in this instance, Edward is actually Aerdwerth, a Caledonian king. (Yes, if you've ever drunk Caledonian beer in Scotland and wondered who the hell the Caledonians were...) Rhi takes his readers through history with Edward and Carlisle... all the way to Forks in the twenty-first century. In addition to envisioning fascinating plot, Rhi writes well and is damn funny. (Best line in his story (IMO)? "F-g Carthaginians!") Give his story a read and tell him SR sent you:
Last, but not least, an extra special thank you to you, the readers, for reading this story from beginning to end. Thank you.

I hope to post the two epilogues over the next couple of weeks. Watch this website for updates and teasers.

All the best everyone and thank you,

Dear Everyone,

Welcome to Teaser Tuesday.

At left is a photograph that was taken by Miss Fortuna.

Chapter 42 is well under way. Here is a brief snippet from it:

"Dear Bella,

I’ll be spending Christmas in Vermont with my family. My father had a heart attack a few days ago and is in the hospital. I’m helping out at home. (My mother says hello, by the way.)

From the first time I met you, I wanted you to be happy. To be real. To have a good life. If you say that you have found those things with him, I’ll accept it. I’m sure you’ve seen a side of him that I’ve never seen.

But I wouldn’t be your friend if I didn’t ask you if he is what you truly want. You shouldn’t settle for anything less than a happy life. And if you have any doubt as to whether he can give that to you ....

I promise I’m not trying to be an asshole by saying this. I’m simply saying that you have a way out. My door is always open and our guest room here at the farm is yours whenever you want it.

... my feelings haven’t changed.


And now for your musical teaser,

All the best everyone and thanks for reading,
