AN - FINAL CHAPTER! this is the final chapter in this particular story.
Chapter 15 - Til Death Do Us Part:
For the second time that day the blue box materialised in the middle of the Millennium Centre. The young man with wild brown hair, full of that ridiculous energy for which he was universally known, threw open the doors, jumped out and offered his hand to a pretty young blonde dressed all in white. She grabbed his hand eagerly, giggling, and the two of them bounded off into the moonlight towards the sparkling water wall.
Jack and Ianto, who had been sharing some Chinese takeaway, looked up to see the Doctor and Rose enter the hub, holding hands. Both wore smiles from ear to ear.
"Jack, sorry to interrupt, but we were wondering if you would marry us. Tonight." said the Doctor, unable to keep the excitement out of his voice.
"Err, sure. Wow! Finally, I mean, I knew you loved her doc, but I didn't think you'd ever get your act together"
"Well, he has, so can we get on with it please?" implored Rose.
"What - now?"
"Well, yeah. We know it's last minute and all. But she's already wearing white, and wearing my ring. Need to make it official"
"Official? You two in a bit of a hurry to-"
"Okay, okay. Where?"
"Here's good" said Rose, "Seems an appropriate place to wed an alien and his girlfriend."
Ianto got up to leave. "I'll just, uh, make sure everything's locked up properly" he said, trying to leave.
"Nah, you're not going anywhere, we need a witness" said Rose grabbing his arm and thrusting him back into his seat. "Sorry," she added, "if you don't mind"
"No, I suppose that's fine" replied Ianto, still a little uncomfortable at being invited to the shotgun wedding of two complete strangers, one of whom was apparently an alien.
The mood in the hub had now completely changed. The air was heavy with solemnity as the serious nature of the events to come became clear to both Rose and the Doctor. He took Rose's right hand in his left and they turned to face Jack, who now wore a slightly bemused expression on his handsome features. He was trying to repress his laughter. He didn't want to ruin the moment for two of closest friends.
"Okay, hold on. Doctor, do you just want to be 'the Doctor'? No name?"
"Yup 'the Doctor' that'll do."
"And Rose Tyler"
"Rose Marion Tyler" Rose corrected.
"Marion? Your middle name's Marion?"
"Ahem" Jack cleared his throat, "Here we go."
"We are gathered here today to bear witness to the joining of this man and this woman in holy matrimony. If anyone here knows any reason why these two should not be wed, speak now or forever hold your peace". There was a short, tense silence in the hub. Rose half expected a slitheen or some other alien nuisance to barge in an disturb things. She was pleasantly surprised when nothing of the sort happened, and Jack continued with the formalities.
"Do you, the Doctor, take Rose Marion Tyler, to be your lawfully wedded wife? To have and to hold, from this day forward, for better or worse, for richer or poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, til death do you part."
The Doctor took Rose's other hand, turning to face her. He looked directly into her eyes,
"Do you, Rose Marion Tyler, take the Doctor, to be your lawfully wedded husband? To have and to hold, from this day forward, for better or worse, for richer or poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, til death do you part."
"Til death do us part" she agreed.
"Hold on," said the Doctor, pulling the ring off of Rose's hand, and sliding it gently onto the correct finger. "Much better" he announced.
"I don't have a ring for you, that's not fair" Rose said, looking crestfallen.
"Here," offered Ianto, "It was mine when Lisa and I… well I haven't worn it since. Please, it's a wedding present", he held out the plain gold ring.
"Thank you" said Rose, smiling warmly at him. She grabbed the Doctor's hand and carefully wriggled the ring onto his finger.
"Okay, well I guess I can now pronounce you man and wife. Alien and wife. Time lord and lady. Either way, you may now kiss the bride" Jack grinned, as the Doctor leant forward and kissed Rose soundly on the lips.
Ianto and Jack excused then themselves, but the newlyweds didn't even notice their departure.
Several minutes later their lips broke apart; Rose's eyes remained closed and her body leant against his - the picture of perfect contentment. The Doctor's hearts were beating a slow and steady rhythm against his ribs.
I don't know about you Rose, but I couldn't be happier.
Me neither. I love you Doctor!
I love you Rose Tyler.
How long are we gonna stay together?
Forever and ever - til death do us part.
I hate that saying - sounds like we're just waiting for something to go wrong.
We're always waiting for something to go wrong. But don't worry about that, Rose, nothing is ever going to come between us again. Never ever.
Never say never ever.
Ha ha, very funny Tyler.
"This telepathy thing is great - but how do we turn it off?" Rose asked.
"Why would you want to turn it off?" asked the Doctor, looking hurt.
"What if I wanted to surprise you? Can't have you reading my thoughts now, can I?"
"Know what, now I really can't wait til the honeymoon" he grinned cheekily.
AN - I decided to just let them have their happy ending because, let's face it, they both deserve it. There will probably be another sequel - the honeymoon!! which will probs involve aliens trying to kill them, etc - the usual amount of bad stuff that happens. but the doctor will have rose so it's all good... for now. So yeah - keep ur eyes peeled for a sequel!
Also thanks for all your fantastic reviews - i really appreciate the effort:)
