(Not) Alone in the Dark

It was a relief to feel the warmth of the fire, to see its light fend off the dark shadows that seemed to creep from every corner and gather around the lonely wanderers of this barren wasteland. Outside the ruins of London stood silent safe for the horrors that dwelled within. It was dangerous enough by day, if one could call the gloom that had fallen over the city such, but by night the streets became a deathtrap.
Jonathan worried about Velkan and Dick. Had they ended up in this hellish travesty of a world, too? And if so, were they still alive? They had to be. Jonathan refused to even entertain a different notion. He and Nate had barricaded themselves in a warehouse. This was a safe haven for now. The fire would keep them warm through the night and they were finally able to catch their breath.
"Ouch."
"Sorry." Nate smiled apologetically. He was dressing the deep cut that Jonathan had suffered during his fall. "This should do it. I cleaned it out as well as I could."
"I'm sure it'll do. Thank you."
For a moment they looked into each others eyes. Nate's hands were still resting on Jonathan's arm. Jon couldn't help but notice how intimate this felt. And how glad he was not to be alone in this nightmare.
"You want to snuggle up? I mean, you're giving me that look. I'm not complaining."
"You just had to go and ruin the moment, didn't you?" Jonathan snickered. Then again, the idea was oddly appealing, simply for the fact alone that he felt so lost right now.

More from the crossover. Not sure if Velkan would appreciate sexual tension between those two *laugh*

:blush: This one was a struggle. I first had "night light" falling in from above. A blue-ish tinted light which fell through a grate in the ceiling creating some very cool shadows. However, as you can't see the grate the light just seemed odd, creating bright spots on Nate's arm especially which were extremely out of place next to the dominating fire.

Love it. You always draw the viewer in with both your writing and visual.

Thank you :) The writing was a bit messy, I just realized. Then again, it's the middle of the night *laugh* Hope I got all the typos now.

No problem. Was to distracted by story to notice typos.

Heh, thanks. Feeling really flattered. I added some more lines to it now. btw: I have my main story with Jonathan online here. It's a little dormant at the moment due to school stress. And I will have to make some changes to the already existing chapters but in case you want to read it, I just want to point that out :)
