He puts his face close to hers. She rubs her cheek against his. He kisses her on the mouth. They explore each other.
Then she pulls back, eyes sparkling.
Kissing is very good. But we have something better.
She pulls him down until they are kneeling, facing each other on the faintly glowing moss.
Neytiri takes the end of her queue and raises it. Jake does the same, with trembling anticipation. The tendrils at the ends move with a life of their own, straining to be joined.
MACRO SHOT — The tendrils INTERTWINE with gentle undulations.
JAKE rocks with the direct contact between his nervous system and hers. The ultimate intimacy.
They come together into a kiss and sink down on the bed of moss, and ripples of light spread out around them.
THE WILLOWS sway, without wind, and the night is alive with pulsing energy as we DISSOLVE TO —
LATER. She is collapsed across his chest. Spent. He strokes her face tenderly.
Neytiri, you know my real body is far away, sleeping.
She raises up, placing her fingertips to his chest —
This body is real.
(she touches his forehead)
This spirit is real.
Her eyes are luminous, honest, infinitely deep.
———- Page90. Off the script of Jame’s Cameron’s Avatar. (Unseen/Removed scene from local theatres).———-
Wow. Just mere words yet I sense the abysmal sorrow, re-reading the script, as Jake mentions the location of his real body, not his Avatar body.
I’m enlightened and warmed by the embracing spirit of an Alien race, that early on so despises the humans, with natural instinct to kill on sight. Strangely its humane.
Granted, experiencing the movie itself was a mesmerising and unprecedented experience, but reading the script has given me much more insight into the character’s developments and the story overall.
It’s unfortunate that some scenes were removed from the theatres, but the script bares all.
It’s an uber excellent read, and especially so if you’re a fan of sci-mance (sci-fi + romance).
With trembling anticipation, I ended the passage of text.
I hear people saying the story is unoriginal, well I’d say that its a classic love story very well told.
