“Christina, I could promise to hold you and to cherish you. I could promise to be there in sickness and in health. I could say ’till death do us part. But I won’t. Those vows are for optimistic couples. The ones full of hope. And I do not stand here, on my wedding day, optimistic or full of hope. I am not optimistic, I am not hopeful. I am sure, I am steady, and I know. I am a heart man: I take them apart, I put them back together. I hold them in my hands. I am a heart man. So this, I am sure. You are my partner, my lover, my very best friend. My heart, my heart, beats for you. And on this day, the day of my wedding, I promise you this: I promise you to lay my heart in the palm of your hand. I promise you ME.
“Apparently, she and I are gonna be quite the team one day.”
I wanted to draw future Flynn and Lucy from the journal. They’re an interesting pair to think about, aren’t they? A little older. A little crazier. His hair is longer, hers is shorter. That feels right.
Okay but imagine the companions reactions to you proposing/giving them the other wedding ring:
Piper: Would be a stuttering blushing mess, “I-I mean, like, you’re sure Blue? With me? Like for real??!?"
Preston: He’d be beaming, his face would light up like never before as he agrees. Through in an affectionate "I love you too” in there.
MacCready: Nerd would pick you up and spin you around, probably fall to the ground and pepper you face with kisses.
Curie: Enthusiastically repeating “Oui Oui Oui!!!” While slightly bouncing with excitement.
Danse: Would be silent for a moment. You think he’s about to say no when he softly asks “Are you sure?” After you nod yes he tried to put it on, only to forget he’s wearing power armor so it doesn’t fit.
Cait: Tries to be as stoic as possible, but she starts crying. She never thought she’d ever be this happy.
Hancock: puts the ring on, but doesn’t say anything, he takes your hand and brings to to the balcony of the state house in Goodneighbor. He calls everyone to the square and announces the engagement loudly and excitedly, much to your embarrassment. Dips you for a kiss just to show off even more.
