AN & Loving Dedications: First to ginchy for the inspiration for the title that word describes them perfectly. And to Briannakin, whose fun!!!!!! pick your own next event in the fic has sparked this delightful L/M getting engaged, married, and honeymooning fic Post #1-- Luke is having a quandary. He wants to ask Mara to be his wife, after six months of dating. The quandary isn't over whether to, but how. His friends have all kinds of suggestions from the overly casual to the completely planned from A-Z. He wants to give Mara an unforgettable evening. He wanted to blend spontaneity with thoughtfulness. If you put in too many details, he thought, that was just one more thing that could go wrong and probably would and spoil the evening. One of the details was how to give her the ring: an original presentation or a traditional one? He sighs. Too much to ponder. It was amazing, Luke reflects as well, that she said yes to their first date. It seemed to take her by surprise, as much as himself!
