author’s note: (this is a lot of information sorry) based on this exchange with @kingslayers-angel. also i’ve twisted a lot of details to make things work, and i’ve dramatized things heavily. sort of also based on sons of anarchy, a little bit, as far the relationships go. circa 2013 bullet club because that’s the one i love most. also shinsuke and okada were in chaos as well in 2013. doc is luke gallows, by the way (just in case). featuring: shinsuke the wingman. this whole fic is a jumbled mess because okada and finn are in different weight classes as well, but this is fiction after all. expect no realism from me. you’ve been warned. this will be in parts, as well.
We’re all standing in the hall, Karl and Doc are standing next to Finn who is mentally preparing himself for his match. Finn looks to me for words of support and I oblige, a small smile on my face. I don’t know if anyone notices that I’m distracted tonight. My hands stay in fists at my side, but when Fale glances over at me above his dark sunglasses, I shake my head and then turn my face away.
I want to marry a girl,” I told them, “so I can rest my soul with her till we both get old. This can’t go on all the time - all this franticness and jumping around. We’ve got to go someplace, find something.
Once upon a time, there was a girl who fell in love with a boy. The bond that transpired between the pair of them was electric, and came out of nowhere. This boy healed her heart from another boy that she had had to walk away from once before. This boy and girl were a beautiful couple, and while it didn’t make any sense on paper for why the two should be together, they were happy — and that’s all that mattered. The boy stood by her side as she healed from a long journey of being sickly and broken hearted, and brought her healing, light, and love. He brought her smiles and laughter nearly everyday that they were together. It was something the girl hadn’t had in quite sometime.
On her 25th birthday, the boy got down on one knee and asked her for forever and always. She said “yes” without any doubt, and the two began preparing for their happily ever after. They chose to say “I Do” at the place where she had grown up— the place where she had played dress up with her little sister and fantasized about her wedding day. Everyone was happy for them, but most of all, everyone was happy that the girl finally was going to get her happy ending after a long, hard road from years before.
