TLT Week #95: The Vintage Vacation

Although everyone was skeptical about the entire trip plan for our romantic vacation which included countryside stay, local cuisine, gadget-free life and many other exciting yet purportedly dangerous adventures, the forest crossing at night on horseback was the one they found the most bizarre but we, per contra, were most excited for.
All night he rode the horse like his favourite hero; Jon Snow from the Game of Thrones, waving the Longclaw sword I had gifted him during last comic con dramatically in the air posing himself as the Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch; reminding me of how I started enjoying war fictions because of his enthusiasm to go on and on about it, eventually making me fall in love with him and the fandom.
At dawn when the first streaks of light peered through the less dense trees we halted briefly to freshen up; he changed into my most favourite attire – the one he never get to wear in the city without inviting frowns from people – a lavishly embroidered waistcoat and knee length breeches, lace jabots tied around his neck in the most royal way, white stockings and heeled boots with golden regal designs engraved, a slightly long coat raised at the collar and a tricorne hat edged with braids and decorated with ostrich feathers; I knew what exactly I should be wearing too, and that we’d be soon off to Pemberley as Elizabeth and Darcy on their way back from a morning hack; and I knew I made him fall for the classics as much as he did for me.

 I was trying to picture the two major types of horse lovers; the people of George RR Martin’s Game of Thrones fandom and the classic lovers like me who can’t help but enthralled by the horses and carriages or anything regal or antique. They’re opposites of each other yet connected with the love for vintage in two different ways. 

Happy Reading! Would love to know how you liked it!

Love, Aishah ❣! ~
