OH MY GOD. I can't believe its over. I can't believe we've finally finished Names. It just seems to surreal. I never thought this day would come! First off, I want to thank all of you who have been with me since my extremely short prologue, even those who had been with me even before Names came to be! I want to thank all of you. But of course, I want to thank everyone who has taken the time to read this and to share in the my journey. You guys have inspired me beyond words and I'm sure you will all continue to do so in the near future.
Second, I apologize - again - for the short chapter as it is 1 am here and I have classes later on, as well as I'm sleepy as hell but I was in a writing mood. So yeah.
and now, for the last time - well, for Names anyway:
The Cretin: Hey, don't sweat about missing the Prince of Gotham chapter, its no biggie. And yeah, we can be pretty annoying when we start following a story up. HAHA. Trust me, loads of people have slammed their phones down on me whenever I try to interview them about something, although I would never fabricate anything unlike our dear Ms. Vale. HAHAHA. and thanks! I'm glad you liked the Shadow Prince thing chapter :p I wasn't sure how people would take it.
batman-defeats-all: Freakishly beautiful. HAHA. Thank you :P
TeamLokiPeeta: Thank you for adding Names to your Story Alerts list!
thebluecrystalrose: Thank you! :D hihi. By the way, thanks for giving me the idea about this chapter!
Oh, yeah. Speaking of! I know I already have a Flying Graysons chapter, but that's different. The Flying Graysons talk about Dick and being a part of that family, while this is just about him - and Starfire obviously :))) Anyway. Thank Rose (thebluecrystalrose) for reminding me about the one flesh thing when getting married - yes, I am Catholic and thus, I also believe that when you marry, you become "one' with your husband and all that. :))))
NOTICE: By the way, to anyone who had been to my profile recently, I would just like to clarify that no matter what insists, I am not from the United States, I'm from the Philippines. and I have no American blood in me or whatsoever, Spanish yes, but no American.
Disclaimer: I do not own Teen Titans and the various names that Dick goes by. DC does though.
In America alone, Starfire estimated that there should be thousands of Graysons, and not all of them necessarily related to her fiancé, it was a common surname after all. It did not speak of any wealth or power, unlike Wayne, nor was it used in films and literature unlike Todd. It was just one of the many surnames that fill the records office of the United States.
Common. Ordinary. Regular.
But then again, those sent of words could never be used to describe her Richard. After all, he was obviously far from common, ordinary and much less regular.
And'r meanwhile, spoke volumes. It speaks of the fire that burns within her blood line, the fire that lights the palace during the dark Tamaranian nights, it spoke of fire that lit blazed across the planet as her people fought valiantly.
And yet, to her, it did not feel so special, to her it felt like just like an ordinary title. It does not hold the same appeal as Grayson did for her. Or maybe she was just biased.
"Kori, are you ready?" A voice, which she knew to be Raven's, called out from the other side of the door "It's time."
Starfire took another deep breath, one to calm her nerves, as she gazed at the mirror one more time as hologramed eyes looked back at her, vivid green eyes staring back her as she raked her eyes up and down her ivory white skin – or at least the parts that weren't covered by her white, a-line, wedding gown.
She then reached out behind her to lift the veil over her face before turning towards the door to be met by Raven who had a smallest hint of a smile on her face "C'mon, let's get you out there – before they do something else to mess it up." Knowing the Titan Network, they wouldn't have to wait long; Especially with Flash in the room.
The minute her eyes met with his, everything had become a blur to her, she could barely remember what the preside had been saying – aside from when they had been called on to say their vows as well as their 'IDo's, only until when someone announced "Please welcome the new Mr. and Mrs. Grayson!" did she snap out of the dreamy trance that she had been in.
And suddenly, Grayson didn't seem such a common surname. Not really.
and that's a wrap people!
Once more, thank you for reading Names, and make sure to check out my other fanfic - Forever and a Day. :)
