Unashamedly tropey romantic tension for Taran/Eilonwy shippers

Webcomic description

Three years after The Book of Three. Lots of things have...evolved.

A short, fanfic-ish adaptation of a moment we are only told about in The Castle of Llyr. SPOILERS for Taran/Eilonwy, if anybody hadn't already guessed where that was going. GRATUITOUS romantic tension tropes, so curmudgeons be warned.

Cranked out quickly in a moment of weakness. Ask me if I'm sorry. (No.)

Also a fun experimentation with a different style. I might do this in full color one day. If I ever get all the way up to comicking Castle of Llyr in entirety, this will probably be the intro.

Will update daily until it's done. Won't take long so don't get too attached.

Oh my I can’t believe I did that. And you’re the first to ever notice!! Lol. Very good catch!! And an easy fix. I’ll get around it it.
Big fan. It's so poignant and sweet. I love it. My one note is that Taran's had in the last few panels switches between his left and his right as we switch perspectives... I don't know how easy it would be to mirror one of them to fix, but I just wanted to pass that along. Thanks for this little indulgence. It was like a cheesecake bite: just the right size to a satisfying in it's own right, but still leave you wanting more.
Beautiful expressions! And, as always, you create such a perfectly blended tone of magic and realism, angst and love/comfort.

Well, that leaves Eilonwy with reminding him of it. You know how she is: "If you keep on behaving so stupidly then I shall just sail away to Mona, etc." If she really longed for this place the way you depicted it in BoT (I will comment more on it at the appropriate place there), then she was always torn between settling and homesickness and the subject continued to hover above them. Who knows what she was thinking when lying awake after her disturbed dreams at night?
I think Taran was distantly aware but probably tried to ignore or forget it, and then as time went on allowed himself to believe that she wouldn’t leave at all. Dallben being Dallben, he probably didn’t bring it up at all, or it even slipped his own mind because he lives more in the world of magic than in the real one, and then suddenly it dropped like a bomb when he realized things were about to get out of hand.
