    I like how you worked that Nat. I think Dawn is better off with Troy.

    I dunno. I think I actually would have liked to see her reaction to having a baby. That can change people. *shrugs* But what does Zekk think of having a daughter?

    I thought that today, the day of the last movie, would be good for this (actually, it just happened that I finished tonight). Welcome to the end.

    ~~~~~~

    Six months, 110 fights, sixty-four threats to elope, seventy-three party decisions, a huge guest list, an expensive caterer, a gigantic dress, lots of tears, and a half-hour ceremony later . . .

    ?With the power vested in me by the Galactic Federation of Free Alliances, I pronounce you husband and wife.? Wedge turned to his nephew. ?You may now kiss the bride.?

    Jag and Jaina Fel shared their first kiss as husband and wife.

    ******

    Iella Antilles smiled at her husband. ?That was a very sweet ceremony.?

    ?Thank you,? he replied, kissing her. ?It?s about time they got married.?

    ?Just think?in a few years this will be our girls.?

    Wedge shuddered. ?Don?t say that! Please don?t say that!?

    Iella decided not to tell him that their daughter Syal was dancing very close to Doran Tainer.

    ******

    Luke bounced Ben on his hip as he and Mara walked over to Wedge and Iella. ?You two aren?t dancing?? Wedge asked.

    Luke shook his head. ?We have to watch Ben.?

    Malinza Thanas popped up at Luke?s side. ?What he really means is that he?s too old.? She grinned, taking Ben out of his arms and retreating quickly.

    Mara glared at the young woman?s back, but Luke chuckled. ?That too. We thought we?d give the kids a chance to dance without the old people.? He sobered. ?And I do feel old. My niece just got married. She already has a daughter. And one of my nephews is married, and the other is engaged.?

    Iella looked surprised. ?Jacen?s engaged??

    Mara turned her glare on her husband before nodding to Iella. ?It?s not public knowledge, but he proposed to Tenel Ka last week. They?re going to keep it quiet until after the wedding, when things settle down.?

    ?Leia?s going to have to get right back in,? Iella said with a smile.

    Mara shrugged. ?If she?s not too weary after the fight Jaina gave her, she?ll be competing with the Hapans. Tenel Ka is the Queen Mother, after all.?

    Wedge tried to cover a smirk. ?I heard plenty about the hell that Jaina put everyone through.?

    Luke nodded in agreement. ?Every time I turned around, she was threatening to elope.?

    Mara sighed, looking over the crowd. ?I don?t blame her and Jag for wanting a small wedding. Fifty people would have been fine; I don?t think they even know half the people here.?

    ?That?s rich, coming from the woman who fought like a rancor for pink on the cake instead of green,? Luke said dryly. Wedge and Iella laughed.

    Luke looked over Wedge?s shoulder. ?Hey, who?s that dancing with Syal? Is that Doran Tainer??

    Wedge turned around? ?What?! Oh, he is in such big trouble . . .?

    Iella grimaced. ?Thanks,? she said sarcastically.

    ******

    Syal had her face pressed into Doran?s shoulder when she felt him stiffen. ?What?s the matter?? she murmured.

    ?Your dad is looking at me like he?s going to bite my head off.?

    ?Don?t worry, he won?t make a scene and ruin Jaina?s day. You?re safe tonight.?

    ?And tomorrow??

    ?I?d advise running.?

    ?Maybe we had better stop dancing so close.?

    Syal snorted. ?Yeah, right. I?ve got you exactly where I want you; I?m not letting go.?

    Doran smiled and held his girlfriend a little closer. ?So since I?m running, would you like to run with me??

    ?Where to?? Syal asked, meeting his eyes.

    ?Oh . . . how about our spot on the rocks??

    Syal smiled. ?I?d like that,? she said. She leaned closer and kissed him softly on the lips.

    Doran returned the kiss. After all, he was safe tonight. He could go buy body armor tomorrow.

    ******

    Myri noticed Troy standing by himself in a corner. ?Not joining in the festivities?? she asked, cradling a drink that she hoped wasn?t alcoholic.

    Troy toasted her with his wine glass and gave her a small smile. ?Not really in the mood. What about you??

    ?No one to dance with.?

    ?Ah,? he said noncommittally, taking a sip. ?You know, Dawn is with a babysitter.?

    Myri had been babysitting

    Because you made me laugh, which I need right now, and because this is the last post, you get . . .

    A LONG REVIEW! [face_dancing]

    ?With the power vested in me by the Galactic Federation of Free Alliances, I pronounce you husband and wife.? Wedge turned to his nephew. ?You may now kiss the bride.?
    Yay! Yay! Yay! Yay! Took them long enough.

    Jag and Jaina Fel shared their first kiss as husband and wife.
    Awwwww! (You know, that sound EXACTLY like the end of the AotC novel. Coincidence?)

    Iella Antilles smiled at her husband. ?That was a very sweet ceremony.?
    Of course it was!

    ?Thank you,? he replied, kissing her. ?It?s about time they got married.?
    Too true, Wedge.

    ?Just think?in a few years this will be our girls.?
    [face_laugh]

    Wedge shuddered. ?Don?t say that! Please don?t say that!?
    Good going, 'Ella! *cheers*

    Iella decided not to tell him that their daughter Syal was dancing very close to Doran Tainer.
    ROTFLMAO!

    ?You two aren?t dancing?? Wedge asked.
    Wonder why??

    Luke shook his head. ?We have to watch Ben.?
    Really? o_O

    Malinza Thanas popped up at Luke?s side. ?What he really means is that he?s too old.?
    Duh! :p

    Mara glared at the young woman?s back, but Luke chuckled. ?That too. We thought we?d give the kids a chance to dance without the old people.?
    [face_laugh] [face_laugh]

    He sobered. ?And I do feel old. My niece just got married. She already has a daughter. And one of my nephews is married, and the other is engaged.?
    Old dude! Ha ha!

    Iella looked surprised. ?Jacen?s engaged??
    He is? I didn't know.

    Mara turned her glare on her husband before nodding to Iella. ?It?s not public knowledge, but he proposed to Tenel Ka last week. They?re going to keep it quiet until after the wedding, when things settle down.?
    Good thinking, Jace. Sludge-news is baaaaad.

    ?Leia?s going to have to get right back in,? Iella said with a smile.
    And she will with vigor.

    Wedge tried to cover a smirk. ?I heard plenty about the hell that Jaina put everyone through.?
    Why am I not surprised?

    Luke nodded in agreement. ?Every time I turned around, she was threatening to elope.?
    Who could blame her? Big weddings are a pain.

    ?I don?t blame her and Jag for wanting a small wedding. Fifty people would have been fine; I don?t think they even know half the people here.?
    Yikes! *hides*

    Luke looked over Wedge?s shoulder. ?Hey, who?s that dancing with Syal? Is that Doran Tainer??
    Luke . . . Bad idea!

    Wedge turned around? ?What?! Oh, he is in such big trouble . . .?
    See?

    Iella grimaced. ?Thanks,? she said sarcastically.
    Yeah. Thanks.

    Syal had her face pressed into Doran?s shoulder when she felt him stiffen. ?What?s the matter?? she murmured.
    What do you think, Syal? That the cake is flying?

    ?Your dad is looking at me like he?s going to bite my head off.?
    Well, he is, isn't he?

    ?Don?t worry, he won?t make a scene and ruin Jaina?s day. You?re safe tonight.?
    I don't know . . . He might.

    And tomorrow??

    ?I?d advise running.?

    Good thinking, Syal.

    ?Maybe we had better stop dancing so close.?
    Why? It's cute.

    Syal snorted. ?Yeah, right. I?ve got you exactly where I want you; I?m not letting go.?
    Sounds like her mother.

    Doran smiled and held his girlfriend a little closer. ?So since I?m running, would you like to run with me??
    Awwwwwwwwwwwwww! [face_love] [face_love] [face_love]

    ?Where to?? Syal asked, meeting his eyes.

    ?Oh . . . how about our spot on the rocks??

    Again, Awwwwwwwwwwwwwww!

    Syal smiled. ?I?d like that,? she said. She leaned closer and kissed him softly on the lips.
    Awwwwwwwwwww! They're so sweet!

    Doran returned the kiss. After all, he was safe tonight. He could go buy body armor tomorrow.
    ROFL! [face_laugh] [face_laugh]

    ?Not joining in the festivities?? she asked, cradling a drink that she hoped wasn?t alcoholic.

    ---
    ?Just think?in a few years this will be our girls.?

    Wedge shuddered. ?Don?t say that! Please don?t say that!?

    Iella decided not to tell him that their daughter Syal was dancing very close to Doran Tainer.

    [face_laugh][face_laugh]

    Mara turned her glare on her husband before nodding to Iella. ?It?s not public knowledge, but he proposed to Tenel Ka last week. They?re going to keep it quiet until after the wedding, when things settle down.?
    About time!

    Luke looked over Wedge?s shoulder. ?Hey, who?s that dancing with Syal? Is that Doran Tainer??

    Wedge turned around? ?What?! Oh, he is in such big trouble . . .?

    Iella grimaced. ?Thanks,? she said sarcastically.

    [face_laugh] Good job, Luke!

    ?I?d rather not ruin everyone?s evening.?

    ?I don?t think you will. You?re not ruining mine.?

    Troy smiled. ?Thank you.? He put down the wine glass and extended a hand to her. ?May I have a dance??

    Myri?s drink joined his on the table as she took his hand. ?Yes.?

    As Troy led her onto the dance floor and started twirling her around, Myri thought, He?s actually a very good dancer.

    She decided to let him have more that a dance.

    Aw, that was so touching! Troy needed cheering up. [face_love]

    Amy looked up at her husband. ?What are you thinking??

    Daniel smiled and kissed her softly. ?I?m thinking about how much I love you.?

    AWWW! [face_love]

    Luke frowned. This wasn?t like Malinza at all. He poured some punch into a cup and took a sip. Then he realized what was wrong.

    I had better warn somebody that the Wraiths spiked the punch.

    *dies laughing*

    Malisia and Ben had decided to dance together, and they had clumsily spun into Malisia?s parents.
    How cute is that?

    ?Well, they?re young, have a child, and first kissed in questionable circumstances.?

    ?Guess that bodes well for us,? Kyp replied with a smile.

    *giggles*

    Anakin enfolded Tahiri in his arms. ?I love you so much,? he whispered into her hair.

    ?I love you, too,? she replied. She tilted her head up and Anakin gave her a long, lingering kiss.

    [face_love] A/T love!

    They stopped dancing and just stood in the circle of each other?s arms. They pulled each other closer as the song ended.

    Jagged and Jaina Fel kissed.

    A very sweet, perfect ending to an excellent story! [face_love]

    Good job, Nat!

    Nat, it's been a pleasure reading this fic of yours.

    Thank you :D

    remember, the hitwomen will be with you, always.

    Thanks :D


    [b[Myra:[/b] Because you made me laugh, which I need right now

    [:D]

    A LONG REVIEW!

    :D

    Yay! Yay! Yay! Yay! Took them long enough.

    Lol

    Awwwww! (You know, that sound EXACTLY like the end of the AotC novel. Coincidence?)

    actually, it is. I have it, but I haven't read it in quite a while. Just got the RotS one, though :D

    He is? I didn't know.

    Neither did she ;)

    What do you think, Syal? That the cake is flying?

    [face_laugh] [face_laugh] [face_laugh]

    Awwwwwwwwwww! They're so sweet!

    :)

    They're gonna get together in the sequel, right?

    Well . . . I can definately say that they have an interesting relationship [face_devil] The first story is Nyda and Garrett's, but the one after that is Troy's.

    See. Wedge. Scream.

    [face_laugh]

    No, I think they're siblings

    [face_laugh] !!! I [face_love] your sarcasm :)

    AWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!! *dies of over-mush*

    *revives Myra*

    Ooo, can I have him? He's a sweet-heart!

    I'll think about it ;)

    vWhy am I not surprised? It's LUKE!

    Would you tell your uncle about that? Really?

    Of course not, but Luke, being his over-protective spazing self, asked.

    Awwwwwwww! They're sweet too! This is like mush everywhere!

    Its the end, of course its just a big mush-fest. I was going to add a little evil, but I decided not to.

    *dies from amount of mush* This is soooooooo adorable!

    *revives Myra again* :)

    Gentle? Really?

    Well . . . ;) :p Gotta keep it PG ;)

    Two? Don't you think that they'll want to get away, too?

    Leia won't let her daughter leave her own party early ;)

    That is soooooo romantic!

    Thanks :D

    I like this post!

    Thanks!!! :D

    Well, the punch IS spiked . . .

    [face_laugh] [face_laugh]

    On the whole scene with Han and Jaina, I think that great minds think alike. Wrote a viggie to that effect.

    :D PM me a link!!

    On the whole scene with Han and Jaina, I think that great minds think alike. Wrote a viggie to that effect.

    Actually, Aryn Thul is very nice, but how would you feel before meeting your boyfriend's mother? (I can tell you from experience, it's SCARY!!)

    Yeah, so would I. Look at Doran. He has to nerve to date Syal.

    Well, he's not old enough to be an offical Wraith. And he's not crazy . . . yet . . .

    He's the what-th person to say that?

    They all know it!! And also, I, ah, didn't proof-read.

    Is anything with Kyp ever?

    True

    Tahiri; sarcasm. Makes sense. I like.

    lol

    Doran! And you haven't been?

    [face_laugh]

    How, may I ask?

    Well, they ARE dancing rather closely ;)

    Overall, *disolves into a puddle of mush* GREAT POST! I wish it wasn't over.

    Thanks!!!! :D

    PS - That's the longest review I've ever written. :eek:

    Lol


    oldj: What a wonderful closing post! It was touching, funny, sweet - and their last dance on that empty dance floor really got to me...

    Um, just so you know, I might still be a lurker with no username...if it weren't for this story. [:D]

    In other words, you've changed my life. Really.
