Epilogue

...

"Quit fucking with your tie," Roxas swatted Ven's hands down as he fidgeted nervously.

"I can't help it... I haven't been in a suit since I was a kid," he mumbled, tugging at his collar to loosen it up a little.

Roxas rolled his eyes, slapping his hand again before moving to pin a flower to his lapel, "You just have to make it through the ceremony and then you can take off the tie and jacket, I promise."

"Roxas, why aren't you dressed yet?!" Aqua came bursting through the door of his hotel room in a long blue gown, making a beeline for him.

"Relax, Aqua, I was just trying to get Ventus ready. I've got time," he assured her, chuckling a little. He seemed to be the only one not freaking out about this wedding, and he was one of the damned grooms.

She grabbed his black suit from it's garment back and threw it at him, finding his tie and flower and helping him get dressed, "Do you remember your vows?"

"Of course," he told her, "Why, did he forget his already?"

"No!" she exclaimed suspiciously, "He just needed a little reminder..."

"Right... Shouldn't you be helping him anyways? You're his maid of honor, not mine."

She started to mess with his hair, "What, and leave Ventus to make sure you look good? No, honey. I made sure Axel was one hundred percent ready before I came over here."

"Ventus, leave your tie alone!" Roxas barked, catching the blond fidgeting again out of the corner of his eye.

"You have no idea how grateful I am to Axel that he paid for Ven's rehab... Ever since he got clean he's been back to his old goofy self again," Aqua smiled, glancing over at Ven as he accidentally sprayed his cologne in his face.

Roxas chuckled, "I'm just glad that it brought us all back together again. I had really been missing you guys. I just... I wish Vanitas could be here..."

"We all do, Rox. He hated formal occasions so much, he'd probably be sitting on your bed bitching up a storm right now."

"Yeah..." he tried not to let tears spring to his eyes, "But he'd eventually shut up and behave because deep down he was a really good guy."

Aqua sniffled a little, "Oh now hush... You're going to make my eyeliner run."

"Hey Roxas? Soooo about my best man speech..." Ventus gave them a sheepish look, "I might have forgotten it at home..."

"Oh good Lord, Ven..." Aqua rolled her eyes, "C'mon, I'll help you write something down."

Roxas let them fuss over the speech as he put the finishing touches on his hair in the mirror. He honestly could care less what they said in their speeches as long as they were just there with him.

...

Axel stood at the altar with his hands folded in front of him and his heart racing out of his chest. He wasn't sure how he'd been roped into the more terrifying role of standing there and waiting, but he knew he couldn't take much more of it.

When the organist started to play the music they'd chosen for him to enter on, Axel nearly jumped out of his skin, earning a jab in the side from Aqua, "Calm down..." she whispered, giggling a little at his nerves.

The double doors at the end of the aisle opened and Axel felt his breath hitch up in his throat as he saw Roxas standing there with his arm hooked around Ven's. As the two of them walked down the aisle together, Axel's eyes just stayed locked on Roxas. He couldn't believe that he was about to marry the love of his life. They'd been through so much together, and he'd been waiting so long for this moment.

"You look so sexy..." he whispered as Roxas joined him on the altar, giving him a small smirk.

Roxas blushed softly, "So do you..."

Axel, quite ironically, was dressed in an all white suit. While most men couldn't pull off the outfit, Axel just looked dashing in it.

The ceremony, which Terra officiated, was short and to the point, but beautiful nonetheless. Their vows were mostly drowned out by Aqua sobbing in happiness and squeaking, "It's just so cute!" or "I'm so happy for them!" but to them, that just made the whole experience even better. She was definitely a nutcase, but she was their nutcase and they loved her.

...

"Whoo!" Axel exclaimed as he popped the cork on a bottle of champagne at the reception, pouring them each a glass and raising them in a toast, "We finally did it!"

Roxas, Ventus, Aqua and Terra all raised their glasses and clinked them together, "To Roxas and Axel!"

"God, I can't believe we're really married," Roxas grinned, "It only took us three damned years..."

"Three best years of my life..." Axel muttered, pulling him over for a kiss. "Look how far we've come, Rox... Isn't it amazing? I went from being a pornstar to starring on the most famous soap opera on television, and you went from being the cute intern to directing that very same show!"

He just laughed, "I still miss Xigbar and Riku's death matches in the studio... It's just not the same being on a set where everyone is professional all the time."

"You know I heard that Xion finally divorced Riku to be with Xig? I'm happy for him... Though I still can't figure out how he puts up with her."

"Were you able to get some time off the show to go on a honeymoon?" Aqua asked, sipping on her champagne.

Axel chuckled, "Yeah, Dr. Christian Bartlett is going to be in a coma for a few episodes. We already filmed all the scenes with me laying in the hospital bed. That was actually Roxy's idea."

"Hey, it worked," Roxas smiled, "And now we get to go to Jamaica!"

"God, I miss traveling with the band..." Terra mused, frowning a little, "I wish we could find another vocalist, but nothing seems right without Vanitas."

Ventus shrugged, "I'm kind of liking staying in one place with a steady job. You know I met someone the other day?"

"Oooooohhh, does Ven have a boyfriend?!" they all teased, poking at him.

"It's possible," he grinned, "His name is Zexion... He works at the library."

Terra cocked an eyebrow, "Since when do you go to the library?"

"Well I used to go there to buy coke, but it turns out that they actually have some pretty decent books. And a pretty hot librarian as well," he added, smiling.

Aqua whacked him on the arm, "Why didn't you bring him to the wedding?!"

"Well 'cause I thought it was just the five of us!" he exclaimed, rubbing his arm. Roxas and Axel hadn't wanted anybody else there. The five of them had bonded so much during the past three years and they were the only people they felt like sharing the day with.

"It's fine, we can all meet him when Rox and I get back from Jamaica," Axel said, turning to Aqua and Terra, "Soooo when are you two getting hitched?"

Terra nearly choked on his champagne, looking over at Aqua, "Well, uhm... I suppose this is as good a time as any..."

Aqua tilted her head to the side curiously, "For what?"

The tall brunette stood up and pulled a small box out of his pocket, then knealt down in front of her, "To ask you to be my wife, of course."

The squeal she let out could have broken glass as she quickly nodded her head, "Yes! Yes, of course!"

It'd been a bit of a fight to get to this point, but finally everybody's lives were exactly where they always wanted them to be.

And to think that all of this started on the set of a porno.

...

A/N: Well there you have it, ladies and gents. I wrote an epilogue. I felt like I had to, even though nothing in here should have been super surprising to anybody. Just cute! Some more background to the past three years:

Basically the little group bonded in Van's absence and became a close-knit family. No, Roxas never reconciled with Hayner or his foster mom, but that's okay.

Yes, Saix got what he deserved. He became a surgeon, royally fucked up a surgery and got sued out of house and home by the family. Now he lives with his insufferable mother and works at a burger joint.

Luxord stayed in the porn industry but eventually was arrested for making a sex tape with a minor like a CREEP. He's rotting in jail now.

Axel did become the star of a famous soap opera, and he got Roxas hired on as a director.

Aqua and Terra had been dating the entire time, but never really felt the need to settle down while they were on the road with the band. After Van's death, the band broke up for good and they both got jobs in town and obviously finally got engaged.

Ventus got clean and went to a trade school to become a carpenter. And you already read about Zexion, so... Yay!

I think that's it! Again, thank you for reading. :3 I'm not even sure why I wrote this epilogue, but I really just wanted to see Axel and Roxas get married 'cause they're cute.

Bye bye!
