So I just watched "An Affair to Remember" with Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr for the first time in like forever and decided it would make the perfect Brooke and Dean story. The characters remind me so much of Brooke Davis and Dean Winchester: ladies man sent to settle down meets the strong willed, rich woman that no one thinks is as smart as she is and loveliness ensues.
There will be some dirty things in it and it will kind of be the most adorable thing ever, I promise—obviously this is AU and dedicated to Sequoya who will love the bantering and the fight for dominance.

Brooke Davis wanted more than anything to be taken seriously so when there was a conference for Clothes Over Bros to be had in Europe, she was going. It took forever for her to convince her mother, Victoria, to let her go and handle it, but the pleading had worked and Brooke was being given this chance to try and make something of herself. She had always wanted to be taken more seriously and here she was, headed off on a cruise ship for a week and then she'd end up in Europe, where she would have her conference and then get back on the cruise ship four days later and travel the week back home.
"I can't believe that you're going to Europe!" Haley exclaimed merrily as she helped Brooke to pack her bags. "I gotta admit…I'm a bit envious of you."
Brooke smiled and then did a little twirl. "I'll take a lot of pictures and send them to you, promise. I mean they won't be as good as what Quinn can do, but I can try right?"
"Yeah, I guess," Haley said with a laugh as Brooke zipped up her suitcase. "I can't believe that you're not taking Lucas with you either. It would be such a romantic getaway for the two of you. Besides, it might give him the push he needs to propose."
"We both know that Lucas is trying to make everything perfect." Brooke said with a smile as she shrugged a bit. "Besides, he has a book to write and if he doesn't get it done soon, Lindsey is going to be really upset with him. It's best he stay here where he won't be getting distracted at all."
Honestly, Brooke couldn't even begin to describe just how excited she was that she was going to get to go and do something on her own. She was going to get to prove to her mother that she could be trusted to do something that had to do with the business side of things, and the smile on her face couldn't be replaced, she knew that. Brooke was going to make an even bigger name for herself and she couldn't believe that Victoria was letting her do this.
Brooke Davis was going to be taken seriously.
Dean Winchester on the other hand, wasn't headed to Europe on the cruise ship because he was trying to better his career. Oh, no. Dean Winchester was on a hunt and he was following his culprit over there because he was on a little hunt of revenge and he wasn't about to let this thing get away one more time and so he booked himself the trip. Besides, it would be a chance for him to get to hook up with some more eligible females while he was away and maybe he could visit his family while he was gone…he hadn't seen Sam in quite some time as it would be.
Sam and Dean had had a falling out when Sam wanted to go back to trying to have a normal life and now Sam was in love and he was planning a future for himself and Dean envied him a little bit. At the same time, Dean liked having the freedom to do whatever he wanted with whomever he wanted and this would be like a hunt and a much needed vacation all in one. Perhaps he'd even meet someone interesting while he was gone, and so he packed some nice clothes he'd also bought with a fake credit card and readied himself up to take a cab with some cash on hand.
While he was doing that, Haley was driving Brooke down to the dock and they were chatting up a storm until they turned the radio on—and even then they were still chatting up a storm. They weren't going to see each other for a little over two weeks and it was hard for the two of them to be apart now that they were together again. In fact, Brooke was kind of not looking forward to everybody knowing who she was when she got on the cruise liner because they would know…they would totally know her.
"You're making that face again, just relax," Haley laughed as she turned the radio down a little bit. "You're going to be fine, Brooke."
Brooke nodded and looked at her. "I know that, Hales, I just…Victoria has never let me do this before, you know? She's always handling it all herself and I'm afraid I'm going to let her down. Add in the fans and the publicity and it all gets a bit much to handle sometimes."
"I can honestly say that I don't know exactly how that feels, though people do recognize me as Nathan's wife, you know." Haley reminded Brooke with a smile. "He's the famous one, though, and I don't know how the two of you do it."
"We have people like you and Lucas to ground us." Brooke reminded her.
"Yeah, but Lucas has some fame too—his books are really good."
"Alright, I'll give you that one."
"Just take a few deep breaths and remember that you're going to be fine, and Lucas is going to be the one to pick you up when you get back."
Brooke nodded at that as they parked, Brooke getting her two suitcases and then hugging Haley as they rested at her feet. She then kissed Haley's cheek and picked the suitcases back up, her and Dean both walking in the crowd to board the beautiful boat. Brooke took a moment once she was on to wave at Haley, before she started to make her way across one of the decks to try and see if she couldn't find her room, Dean doing the same…
Note: Okay, that was just the set-up, but I have every chapter mapped out. So there should be two more today and I hope that you enjoy them both! Feedback is always appreciated!
