Author's Note: So its been a while since I checked in with these kids, but I decided I wanted to write Deena and Ryan's wedding. Hope people like it!

Disclaimer: I don't own any of the songs or Duck characters, I do own my OCs


Situation: Deena and Ryan get married!

Timeline: Er, not so sure on this one, somewhere inside of the first year that Kitty and Julian are married.

Song: Til I hear it from you by Gin Blossoms (Watch Empire Records, you will fall madly in love with both the movie and this song.)

I didn't ask
They shouldn't have told me
At first I'd laugh, but now
It's sinking in fast

Deena Banks smiled as her mother pinned a white flower into her short blonde hair. She glanced into the mirror.

"Look at you!" Heather laughed. "You nervous?"

"I'm terrified," She whispered. She stood up and looked at her mother. "Do I look alright?"

"You look beautiful," Heather said and kissed her on the cheek. The wedding was ending up to be fairly casual, on the beach in front of the Malibu house. Deena's dress was white linen strapless party dress that Kitty had gotten her as a wedding gift.

"Dee?" Theresa walked in. "Um, they're waiting."

"OK," Deena said softly.

"Last chance to back out," Theresa teased. Deena laughed.

Whatever they've sold me
Well baby I don't want to take advice from fools
I'll just figure everything is cool
Until I hear it from you

"Ryan," Julian walked over to where he was standing. Ryan nodded and took another sip of water, "I wanted to give you this." He handed him an envelope.

"Julian," Ryan said, "We don't want this."

"It's a wedding present," Julian said seriously. "I am trusting you to take care of my little sister Wells, and to be perfectly honest, I want her living better than a two room apartment in a shitty neighborhood in Boston." Ryan laughed. "God, I get four brothers in the span of a year you would think one of them would be happy to take my money."

"Have you offered Reid and Fulton any money?" Ryan laughed. "I have serious doubts that they'd say no."

"Ry," Dom said, "Deena's ready." Ryan finished his drink and walked towards the altar.

It gets hard
The memory's faded
Who gets what they say
It's likely they're just jealous and jaded

"I can't remember a time in my life when I didn't have this girl," Ryan said standing holding Deena's hands, "She's loud, obnoxious, difficult and everything that I've ever wanted." She laughed. "The first twenty years have been perfect, and I know that the rest of our lives are going to be amazing. Deena, I love you, and saying that our life together is starting would be the most incorrect statement ever, its been a crazy ride, and its nowhere near the end." She smiled sweetly.

"When I was six years old, I remember distinctly, that I was a bit of cry baby," She started, "But if there was one thing that always managed to get the tears to stop, it was the sight of my best friend, Ryan. And although occasionally he was the cause of the crying, he always knew how to make me laugh to make it stop. Now its fourteen years later and there's nothing I want more than to make sure that Ryan, you keep me in check." She looked down, "You're my other half, without you I've got nothing. I love you." They slid rings onto each other's hands. Ryan leaned down and kissed her softly.

"I'm yours Banks." He smiled and whispered.

"You bet your ass you are," She laughed and held herself close to him.

Well maybe I don't want to take advice from fools
I'll just figure everything is cool
Until I hear it from you
Until I hear it from you

"So," Theresa said, dancing with the groom later in the evening, "What exactly are you to me?" He laughed, "No I'm serious Ryan, you're in the family now. Let's see, Deena is my sister's sister in law, and,"

"And your almost step sister," Ryan said, "Which makes me your almost step brother in law?" He tried.

"Also my ex boyfriend," She giggled. "Welcome to the mess my friend, you're gonna love it in here."

"I got married Re," He said. "Am I crazy?"

"Yes," She nodded, "You are definitely crazy Wells."

I can't let it get me off
Or break up my train of thought
As far as I know, nothing's wrong
Until I hear it from you

"Thanks for the beach wedding," Dom said walking over and talking to Deena, she laughed.

"It was all for you Mariano," She said, "You know seeing you in a tux once was enough for me." He laughed.

"So, is Ryan an official Duckling now?" He smiled, she laughed.

"No," She shook her head, "You need blood to be a Duckling. You're only half Duckling, remember that."

"So are you," He said, "The Portmans are the only purebloods."

"Nah, Heather was initiated," Deena laughed, "I got married." She sighed happily.

"I know," He smiled. "You're crazy."

"I know!" She squeaked and hugged him.

Still thinking about not living without it
Outside looking in
Til we're talking about it, not stepping around it

"I'm so glad we had a small wedding," Deena laughed as Ryan kissed her.

"And why is that?" He asked. She pulled him close.

"Because, big weddings are so tiring, and then I wouldn't have the energy to do this," She kissed him and they fell backwards onto a bed. He kissed her and then looked down, at her for a minute, "What?" She giggled.

"Dee, we're married." He whispered. She smiled. "This is crazy."

"It's completely crazy," She laughed and kissed him, "You know in some cultures you aren't really married until consummation."

"Well in that case," He whispered and kissed her again. "I love you Deena."

"I love you too," She smiled happily.

Maybe I don't want to take advice from fools
I'll just figure everything is cool
Until I hear it from you...
