Thunder: Night 54, Nothing Matters but You

Rory and Jess have had their ups and downs, yes. Such as him leaving her to go meet his father, and her equal share of heart breaks towards him.

But Jess found that every girlfriend or random hook up he had wasn't quite the same as Rory. They didn't go to him during storms. And Rory found that every boyfriend or fling she had didn't quite own up to Jess. Because she wasn't scared of thunder storms with them.

So they always left them.

And nothing can stop true love. Not even death. So, as the Princess Bride as their guide, Jess and Rory got back together.

And Jess was thinking of making it permanent. Who wouldn't when it came to Rory?

And, of course, Rory was as well. But she a classic person, and wanted the man to do it. And she's also Rory, and she wanted him to do it during a thunder storm. Call her old fashioned.

Rory came to her home she shared with Jess. Nothing out of the ordinary. Except for maybe the flash of light that was coming from the dark and gloomy sky.

Thunder. Jumping. Yelping. Grinning.

"Ror? Is that you? Oh wait, what am I saying, of course it's you! No one else's yelps at thunder."

"Jess!" She didn't expect him home so early.

"No one yelps at anything for that matter." he muttered into her hair as she gave him a huge hug.


"Oh shut up. You know you love me." She kissed him.

Thunder. Jump. Sqeeze. Kiss.

"Yes I do."

"So what's for dinner?"


"What kind of food?"

"Food you eat."

She frowned. "Your no fun."

He smirked. "I try."

She went back into their room. She giggled. Even though she's lived there with him for two years, she still can't get over the fact that they have a 'their room.'

She went in her closet to get changed. The power went out. She had some how managed to hit her head on something (saying what really hit her head was too embarrassing) and she screamed and fell to the floor.

"Rory? You ok? Where are you?"

"Closet! Hurry Jess! It's so dark!" Of course she was joking. Right?

Jess found it funny he still had those doubts.

"What? I already checked, and don't worry, there is no monster in the closet."

Rory frowned. "Yeah well, what if the thunder scared the monster from out of under the bed and he ran into the closet, and then he saw me come in here and figured 'Hey! Perfect chance to scare Rory!' and now he's just waiting for his chance to attack! Ever think of that?!"

Flash. Crack. Boom. Yelp. Smirk.

"What?" Rory asked. Jess was looking down at her, and he had a certain look in his eye...

Flash. Silence. Rumble.

Rory's heart rate sky-rocketed. Jess was getting down on one knee...

"Jess...uh...wh-what are you-you doing?" Her voice was all breathy. Oh god. Oh god. Oh god.

"Rory, there is something I want you to know." beat "I am completely in love with you."

"I-I already kn-knew that."

He continued as if she didn't even talk. "I love how you make ever situation tolerable, even if it's as silly as rambling about a monster going from under the bed to the closet. I love your fear of thunder storms. I love everything about you. I can't even tell you how much. I'd die for you. I'd kill for you. I'd be happy forever if you'd only smile at me. Come to think of it, I want to kiss you. I want to hold you, I want you to hold me. You are so gorgeous I can hardly stand it. You make me laugh, you make me cry.

Nothing matters but you. There is nothing in this world that I want or need, but you.

You, Rory Gilmore. You."

At this point, Rory didn't think going dehydrated for a whole week could stop the tears from falling. A whole month.


"Will you marry me?"

Thunder crawled up their spines. Silence. She launched herself at him.

He couldn't understand her through her sobs. "Uh, I didn't quite catch that?" Even though she had herself attached to him, he still couldn't find himself relaxing until she said 'yes.'

"Of course! Of course! That was beautiful, Jess!" He barely understood, then she went back to blubbering incoherently again.

He pulled out her ring. It wasn't the usual diamond. I was dark blue. Sapphire. Rory gasped. Held out her finger. Lightening flashed, iluminating half of everything. Jess could see her face. Her gorgeous face. Tear stained. Happy. Glowing. He slid the ring onto her finger before kissing it gently. And she burst into tears. And he held her.

Thunder shattered the silence.
