A/N: Alright, here it is, the end I'm sorry to say. Hope everyone likes how things get tied up. Thanks to everyone who reviewed. I'm glad you enjoyed the story. No current plans for a sequel, but I suppose you never know.




Lisbon half ran up the stairs into Jane's apartment building. His new apartment building. In Sacramento. That he'd only gotten a month or so ago.

But that wasn't important right now.

Right now she needed to talk to him about something else.

She waited impatiently for the elevator and then practically vibrated the entire ride up to Jane's floor.

He opened the door promptly when she knocked.

"Hi!" she said with a smile.

"Hi," he replied, letting her into the apartment. "Were we doing something today?" he asked.

"No," Lisbon told him. "But I need to talk to you."

"Okay," Jane told her. "Let's talk."

"Crazy for You's coming to town," she told him. "An off-Broadway production. Will you go with me?" she asked.

He laughed at her excitement. "Of course," he promised her. "I had no idea you were such a fan of Gershwin."

"I saw the show years ago," she told him. "A college performance, and I loved it."

"Well what do you know?" Jane asked. "Tough and terrible Teresa Lisbon likes musical theatre. I'm shocked."

She rolled her eyes. "No, you're not."

"No, I'm not. And of course I'll go with you, dear," he added, slipping an arm around her waist.

She smiled up at him. "I knew you would," she said softly.

"When is it?" Jane asked. "Got to make sure to keep the date free."

"Mid-September," Lisbon told him.

Jane stared at her. "Lisbon, that's almost six months from now! Do we really need to plan this now? I think I'll be able to fit you in."

"I know," she said breathlessly. "I know it's six months from now, and I know you'll go with me."

The realization hit Jane like a thunderbolt. "Oh Teresa," he whispered. "Teresa, darling."

She laughed happily, "I've gotten used to it, Patrick," she told him, wrapping her arms around his neck.

His lips were on hers almost before she'd finished speaking. She settled against him happily.

"I love you," she whispered.

Jane stared at her for a minute, then he kissed her. Lisbon could feel the emotion behind it, more importantly she trusted it to be there.

"You're stuck with me now," she murmured, breaking away.

"Good," Jane said firmly, recapturing her mouth. He felt her hands slide into his hair, as they so often did.

"I have to say," he added, a few seconds later. "I don't think I've ever been so happy to be going go to the theatre."

"In six months," Lisbon added with a grin.

"In six months," he agreed.

"I'm glad I thought of it then," Lisbon said cheerfully.

"You do look very satisfied with yourself, dear," Jane told her, running a hand up and down her back.

Lisbon grinned wickedly. "And why shouldn't I be? Since I've always been the one in charge of planning things in this relationship..."

"Teresa," Jane warned.

"What?" she asked innocently. "You wanted me to plan things. I'm just continuing the pattern," she told him. "Someone needs to take charge."

"I'll show you taking charge," Jane growled, cutting off her laughter with another kiss.

Lisbon didn't mind. This argument would last a little while. At least she hoped so.

He'd promised to bother and irritate her for the rest of her life, and she was going to hold him to it.


The End

P.S. I am still taking requests for December. I'm again going to direct people to my LJ if they're interested. But if you don't want to go read the post and you want to request, that's fine. PM me. I need a couple of things from you. One, a tentative date; the idea is that I'll write/post a fic a day. Some days are already taken. If you request a day that's taken I'll suggest another. Two, a prompt (hopefully/possibly something that could act as a title. I'm not being really strict about this AT ALL, but something to keep in mind). And three, I'm going to be writing 31 of these things. That means that unfortunately they can't be novels. There is a minimum length of 300 words; however, I am REALLY not holding myself to that (I'm really, really not). Knowing how I write, many of them will be longer, but please try to keep your prompt something that could at least *theoretically* be filled in 500 words. (Then it will be a pleasant surprise when your fic is longer, yes?) And I reserve the right to decline any requests. There are some thigns I don't write (eg. mature fic). But yeah, if you're interested, get in touch. Hope everyone has a good weekend!
