WH: Hareton and Catherine by Velven WH: Hareton and Catherine by Velven
I got this finished while on holiday, the coloured version of my Wuthering Heights commission for Megan.

She asked for: "Hareton and Catherine, sometime after the book. Also I'm a big fan of Regency era clothing - lace gloves and cravats!! And the colour blue."

I hope it satisfies. I'm ashamed to say I had to go back and re-read the end of WH because I had apparently forgotten how hot Hareton is. XD

I used a couple of textures I scanned in myself, mainly of different papers etc, and I used a couple of ~ZeBiii's patterns for the clothes.

This is my favorite couple from Wuthering Heights. I just finished reading it yesterday, and I really love how Catherine finally stopped being stuck-up towards Hareton and they really bonded as equals.

Yeah I like Catherine/Hareton a LOT more than Cathy/Heathcliff. I think it's the main reason I don't particularly like WH all that much, I just don't find the main romantic couple that romantic. I am waiting for a Catherine/Haretin spin-off though lol.

There was a second book written actually! However, Charlotte or Anne (can't remember...) burnt it in a jealous rage!

I like the Edgar - Catherine story better myself, the near-enough unrequited love is really touching!

Haha oh dear, that is quite a jealous rage then!

I also prefer Cathy/Edgar Linton, I think if Heathcliff hadn't come back they might have actually been happy together. Edgar's unrequited love made me feel sadder than anything that happened to Cathy or Heathcliff.

Indeed! 

Oh same! I also like how he looked after Cathy II so well, treating her like a little princess!

Pfft yeah exactly. It seemed like Catherine and Linton just caused each other more distress than anything else. And yeah, when I first read Wuthering Heights I was expecting something a lot different I guess. I didn't really see much passion between the couples (maybe that's just the writing style...making things subtle and stuff). Like the original Cathy and Heathcliff, it would have been cool if they went into one of their perspectives for part of the time so we can see what really happened when they ran off with each other.
With Hareton and Catherine, I guess I just felt an actual bond rather than some passion with no substance. They really seemed to compliment each other well. Too bad it had to be right near the end of the book. :X

At least with it being at the end of the book, there wasn't time for Emily to kill either of them off... lol.
