A/N: This story is now complete! Thanks so much for the overwhelming support you all have given me, I love this fandom!

Beca and her family sat around the dinner table to eat together as a family. This was something that they made a nightly habit. Chloe insisted that they needed to always have quality time together so that they remained close now that the kids are growing up.
Their eldest, Catherine (named after Beca's mother, who resembled her as well), was now sixteen. She was Beca's child in every way imaginable: from the one too many piercings to the 'devil may care' attitude. There have been many times when Beca wondered how the hell anyone ever put up with her when she acted like that, but then she looked at Chloe and was glad that someone took the time to sift their all her bullshit.
Tristan was next in line; he was a redhead like Chloe and just turned eleven. He shared his mother's compassion and joyfulness but Beca's musical talent (not that Chloe wasn't musically talented, but Tristan played four different instruments). Beca loved that he looked like her wife, and she adored him even more because of it. Not that she was playing favorites.
Destiny was ten. Beca and Chloe wanted to go through pregnancy together once Catherine started preschool. A double pregnancy gave them their share of ups and downs, but Beca loved most of it (especially the fact that, for a little while there, they had a VERY active sex life). Not that they were ever lacking in that department, have you seen her wife?
Destiny shared Beca's dark hair but little else. She was the best mixture of both Beca and Chloe. And that basically meant that she had every one of Chloe's good qualities (does she have any bad ones?) and none of Beca's bad ones.
Beca was brought out of her musings when Chloe's hand squeezed her thigh, and her lips grazed the brunette's cheek. "Penny for your thoughts?"
Beca smiled reassuringly at her wife. "Just thinking about how lucky I am."
Chloe beamed in response.
"Could you guys try and be normal parents for like, five minutes." Catherine groaned as she swirled her potatoes around on her plate.
Chloe laughed at her daughter's statement, but Beca wasn't as amused. "And who are some normal parents?"
"Alex's mom and dad." She replied immediately.
Destiny and Tristan giggled because everyone knew that Catherine had a huge crush on Alex. Beca rolled her eyes. "You called Aubrey normal?"
Chloe slapped at her wife playfully. "Come on, it's been over twenty years. Are you ever going to stop giving each other a hard time?"
"She started it. She always starts it!" Beca protested with a pout.
Chloe's eyebrow rose as if to tell her that she was being really mature right now.
"Right, like Aubrey started it when you told her that she was a bitch just because she introduced Fat Amy to you and you assumed she was insulting her." Catherine jeered.
"She told you that?!" Beca shrieked.
Catherine rolled her eyes. "She told me a lot of stuff about you guys from when you were in college."
"You are forbidden from going over there ever again." Beca demanded, though she was probably being a bit overzealous.
Chloe laughed. "Really? They can't go to our best friends' house anymore?"
Beca narrowed her eyes at the redhead. "No."
"You've demanded that they stay away from most of our friends at least one time or another." Chloe teased. "Remember when Lily babysat and started the house on fire?"
"Do you blame me? It was our house!"
"But you said we were forbidden from hanging out with Benji too." Tristan said, clearly still upset about it.
"He made three pet rabbits 'magically appear'." Beca defended herself. "I had to put my foot down."
"You told us that we had to be supervised if we hang out with Fat Amy because Destiny came home saying something about Meth." Catherine commented with a smirk that rivaled Beca's. "Even though it was just a figure of speech that was totally hilarious."
Beca opened her mouth to argue but was interrupted.
"And we're not allowed at Stacie's if she has company." Destiny added.
"That's only if it's one of her boyfriends." Beca replied earning a smirk from Chloe. When she noticed the look of adoration on her wife's face she sighed in defeat. "You think it's funny?"
Chloe's gaze softened. "I think you get adorably frustrated and that's funny."
"So am I grounded from Alex's or not?" Catherine wondered with annoyance.
"When are you gonna ask him out?" Tristan asked in interest, but maybe he was also teasing just a little bit.
"I can't just ask him out. He's my best friend."
Chloe and Beca shared a knowing look.
"Besides, it's the boy's job to ask the girl out. Right, mama." Destiny added confidently. Then she looked at both of her moms. "Who asked who out with you guys?" There was confusion and fascination apparent on her face.
"I think your mom made the first move." Beca replied with uncertainty.
"You think?" Catherine's eyebrow rose.
Chloe rolled her eyes. "I wasn't subtle about it at all." Then the redhead looked at her oldest daughter. "But your mom and I started as best friends and maybe we'd have stayed in that position if neither of us was brave enough to make a move."
Catherine nodded. "But what if he only sees me as a friend?" She asked with fear.
Beca's eyes softened as she regarded her daughter. They were so much alike it was scary. "You have to be brave enough to let other people in, sweetheart. It's the only way that you'll ever be happy."
The younger girl bit her bottom lip nervously. "How do I do it?"
Chloe's eyes lit up as she clapped excitedly. "I have so many ideas!"
Beca placed her hand gently on her wife's forearm. "Let's go for subtle this time around, okay?"
Her wife nodded with a blush.
"I still think you should let him make the move. It's much more romantic." Destiny spoke dreamily.
"Why should the guy do all the work?" Tristan argued, feeling the need to defend himself.
"I don't think there's anything wrong with a woman sweeping a man off his feet." Chloe stated which caused Tristan to grin with pride.
Catherine stood from her chair with determination. "I'm going to my room to work on a mix for Alex. I think I'll give it to him and tell him how I feel tonight."
Both Beca and Chloe smiled at their daughter's nervous excitement. When she was out of the room, Beca breathed out in relief. "I've never been so proud to have her take after me."
Chloe's mouth dropped open. "What's that supposed to mean?"
The brunette leaned into her wife and whispered in her ear. "Because, if she took after you then she'd be surprising him in his shower."
The redhead's face flushed and she chuckled in embarrassment. "You're right. Making a mix is a much safer option."
"How did you guys get together?" Destiny, the obvious romantic, wondered out loud.
"Well, to be honest…it's a long story." Beca didn't know where to start.
"Come on, I want to hear it." Destiny pouted.
"Well, it was pretty much love at first sight for me." Chloe offered with a faraway look in her eye.
"Really? I didn't realize that." Beca addressed her. "How didn't I know that?"
Chloe shrugged. "There were a lot of things you didn't know back then."
Beca's eyebrows furrowed. "Tell me." Then she corrected herself. "Tell us."
"Yeah, mama. Tell us the story about you and mom." Tristan stated after finally jumping on the bandwagon.
Chloe took a deep breath and started telling the tale of her epic romance with the love of her life.
Later that night, while the younger kids were in bed, Chloe and Beca relaxed on the couch awaiting Catherine's arrival.
"I still can't believe it took me so long to notice how perfect you were for me. I mean, I knew that you were important to me but I didn't…I didn't realize that you'd become my entire life." Beca whispered in awe as she stared lovingly at her wife. "I love you." She spoke against the redhead's lips.
The romantic gesture quickly escalated into a heated make-out session. Before clothes were discarded, they heard someone clear their throat.
"Really? You guys are worse than hormonal teenagers." Catherine groaned with a smirk before she plopped down on the couch beside them.
Chloe climbed off of her wife and settled down on the other side of Beca. "How'd it go with Alex? Did you tell him?" She asked eagerly.
Their daughter's eyes lit up. "We're going on a date Friday night!" She squealed with excitement.
Then she burst forward and hugged her parents. "Thanks for your advice; I needed a swift kick in the ass."
She noticed Beca's stern face. "Sorry, mom."
Beca relaxed into a smile. She was so proud of her daughter and so happy for her as well. "So, what'd he say?"
"That he always liked me but didn't want to risk our friendship. Then he said something about fruit pouches and a movie." Catherine's brows wrinkled. "I think that's our date."
Beca smiled to herself. As much as Catherine was just like her, Alex was just like Jesse. Thank God! Beca wasn't sure she'd be as onboard with the budding romance if Alex took after his mom.
"It's a good date." Chloe said with a smile. "I think fruit pouches are adorably romantic."
"How?" Catherine had to ask because she didn't see it.
Beca wrapped her arm around her daughter and whispered conspiratorially. "Come back to us on Friday and we'll see if you still need to ask that."
Catherine nodded with a smile. She kissed both of her moms goodnight and hurried off to bed.
"Did the fruit pouches really win you over?" Beca asked as she cuddled back into her wife.
Chloe wrapped her arms around her securely. "I just told you about how I fell in love with you, Beca. The drinks had very little to do with it."
The brunette sighed with contentment. Whatever the reason for Chloe choosing her, she's just glad that the redhead did.
A/N: So that's it, THE END! I hope you enjoyed a little glimpse into the everyday life of a very married and happy Beca and Chloe! I will be posting the companion piece immediately after this one is up, so if you want to hear the story that Chloe told her kids about hers and Beca's courtship…check it out. It's called, 'Whatever it takes.'
Also, I'm considering a slight sequel eventually (not any time soon) that will be during the time Aubrey, Chloe and Beca are roommates still at college. Would you be interested? It probably won't be very long but it will just follow their friendship and the growing relationship between Beca/Chloe. It seems I just can't let this story go! I hope you all feel the same way :)
