Haha, okay my bunnies. The end of this little story is near, and you know what that means! Yup, oranges and milk for everyone! LOL. The song I chose for El and Liv is I Finally Found Someone, by Sammy Kershaw and Lorrie Morgan.

Disclaimer: They ain't mine... I wonder if Dick Wolf would accept one of my stories as a script if I offered him a lifetime supply of oranges and milk. Hmm.

This chapter is for Essy, Kelly and Rach, as usual, for all their ideas and ranting with me. Thanks, duckies!

The crowd applauded, and everyone behind the curtains moved to the edge so they could see the partners appear from opposite sides of the stage. Cragen smiled at his best detectives before walking off the stage to join the rest of the SVU and MCS detectives and A.D.A.

Elliot and Olivia exchanged grins as they grabbed their microphones, and Elliot whispered, "I still can't believe I let you talk me into singing this one."

She shook her head and shot back, "It was better than doing Hips Don't Lie." His trademark grin appeared on his face, and she rolled her eyes and said, "Oh brother."

The first few notes of the piano solo floated in, and Elliot raised his microphone to his lips, a warm smile appearing on his face as he began the song.

I finally found someone

That knocks me off my feet

I finally found the one

That makes me feel complete

Elliot lowered his arm, and Olivia raised her microphone to her mouth. As the words fell from her lips, she couldn't help but think of the first time they met, or the first time they had had coffee together.

It started over coffee

We started out as friends

It's funny how from simple things

The best things begin

It was true. It was better with Olivia, because he felt like he could actually talk to her, instead of just screaming and yelling. He knew that he could be honest with her, and that meant more to him than anything, as it did her.

This time it's different

It's all because of you

It's better than it's ever been

Cause we can talk it through

She smiled at him, her heart nearly bursting with love for the man in front of her. Here was the man that she was meant for, and was meant for her, standing close enough to touch. And she was lucky enough to know it. No matter how many fights they had, or how many nights they spent on the jagged side, they would always find a way to wake up in each other's arms.

My favorite line

Was "Can I call you sometime?"

That's all you had to say

To take my breath away

They both raised their microphones and smiled at each other, their voices spilling together in a beautiful harmony that perfectly reflected their partnership, and relationship.

Behind the curtains, there wasn't a dry eye to be found as the men and women listened to Elliot and Olivia singing.

This is it, oh I've finally found someone

Someone to share my life I finally found the one

To be with every night

Cause whatever I do

It's just got to be you

My life has just begun

I've finally found someone

Once they finished the chorus, Elliot and Olivia turned to face each other, and brilliant cerulean eyes met dark chocolate ones. He raised one hand slowly, palm out, and she reached her hand out and did the same, until their palms were touching together.

As he sang a question, she sang her answer back to him.

Did I keep you waiting? (I didn't mind)

I apologize (Baby, that's fine)

I would wait forever just to know you were mine

Girl, I love your hair (are you sure it fits fine?)

I love what you wear (isn't it too tight?)

You're exceptional, I can't wait for the rest of my life

Behind the stage, Mike had wrapped his arms around Carolyn, Bobby was holding Alex, and Munch was sitting in a chair with Alex sitting on his lap. As they listened to the music, each of them reflected on their own relationship with their significant other, and what an impact that this night had had on their relationships.

Looking at his colleagues, Cragen couldn't help but think, Looks like those two might have this contest in the bag. Not that it surprised him or anything. He respected Munch and Fin and loved them like sons, but there was just something about the way Elliot and Olivia were just… them.

It was the way they could talk to each other without saying a word, in the way they would have a fight so bad they would be toe to toe, and then they were fine again. It was in the way they were always together, and how he couldn't say one name without saying the other in the same breath. It was in the way she could get away with calling him El when no one else could, and in the look in their eyes when they were with or talking about the other.

It was in the way they were the best pair of partners he had ever had the privilege of seeing and working with. And that was the truth.

Back onstage, Elliot and Olivia had moved close enough so that there was barely any space between them, but the only contact they had were their hands that were still touching at the palms.

Elliot finally moved closer and rested his forehead against Olivia's, and the rest of the world seemed to fade away, leaving only the two of them and the music that was drawing them closer and closer together.

This is it, oh I've finally found someone

Someone to share my life I finally found the one

To be with every night

Cause whatever I do

It's just got to be you

My life has just begun

I've finally found someone

The music became softer, and Olivia smiled tenderly at Elliot, her fingers lacing through his and squeezing them affectionately.

And whatever I do

It's always been you, Liv, he thought, and she could see it in his eyes.

It's just got to be you

Their voices blended again as they sang the last two lines of the song with such passion and truth that they both had tears in their eyes, and so did the audience.

My life has just begun

I've finally found someone

They lowered the microphones and shared a gentle kiss, then pulled away and bowed for the audience. The audience rose to their feet and began clapping and cheering wildly, and the two partners exchanged grins.

Cragen appeared on stage, quickly followed by Deakins, Mike, Munch, Fin and Bobby. Olivia gave a little wave to the audience, quickly hugged Elliot, then hugged Munch, Fin and Cragen before sashaying off the stage and behind the red velvet curtains.

"Olivia Benson, everybody!" Cragen shouted, and the audience went wild again.

"Okay, ladies and gentlemen," Cragen announced once the cheers and applause had died down, and the audience had returned to their seats. "You know what time it is. Now that you've heard all of the acts, it's time for you to vote. So grab a ballot and vote for your favorite act! The voting will end after the second group performs, so be sure to get your ballot in so it will be counted."
