Meme (Wedding Edition, Part Two)  
I did a wedding meme for two characters I'll probably never write again but there you go.

Here's the wedding of Adam Young of "Good Omens" and Sophie Taylor who appeared in my Good Omens/Sherlock crossover fic from eons ago as well as this other meme.


Who proposed?
Adam.

How did they propose?
Adam was going to be very traditional and ask Sophie's father's permission because that's how Adam's father, Mr. Young had proposed to Mrs. Young. However, Adam was a little worried that his intense desire to want to marry Sophie might lead to him sort of...err..nudging Mr. Taylor to say yes to his request. He was also worried that he might go too big with the proposal as his intense desire for Sophie to say yes might lead to him not only nudging her but having miracles happen to insure she answer in the affirmative. Like, he was concerned he might accidentally resurrect John Lennon and George Harrison to have a complete set of the Beatles play during the proposal. So instead he scaled it down as much as possible and took Sophie out to a nice meal on her birthday and proposed over a candlelit dinner and wine with the ring he'd picked out. Sophie was so ecstatic, there wasn't even enough of a pause before she said 'yes' to give Adam any chance of nudging her.

Who stressed more over wedding planning?
Definitely Sophie. At least at the beginning of the planning stage. She and Adam decided on a small wedding but even small ones take a lot of work. The first thing she did was find her dress and then rolled up her sleeves to figure out what she expected would be a nightmare of scheduling the venue, the caterers, and florists, etc. Surprisingly, everyone was available on the dates she and Adam had been hoping for. The costs were also very reasonable and no one had any problems delivering what they asked for. Sophie's sister commented that it had to be the smoothest wedding planning in history.

Who had the wildest bachelor(ette) party?
Adam. It was a small party as he only wanted to spend a fun evening one last time as a single person in the company of his closests friends, the Them. However, the four of them had quite the evening. It was wild only in the sense that it should have been impossible as for 12 hours, Adam, Pepper, Wensley, and Brian all got to be kids again. They battled dragons, rescued some prisoners from an inquisition, and re-enacted the last day of Pompeii. It's only a shame that none of them will really remember it, other than Adam who had to do a medium sized miracle to keep things looking normal. Still, everyone felt pretty happy and elated the next day even though they weren't quite sure why.

Who freaked out before the wedding?
Aziraphale and Crowley.

They were not invited to the wedding for obvious reasons, but they were forced to crash it once word reached them that their respective companies were planning on ruining the event. Mainly because both sides wanted Adam to stop this Being a Normal Human nonsense and get on with being the Anti-Christ. There was a lot of behind the scenes vanquishing of demons, banishing of heavenly forces, and some verbal arm-wrestling by all supernatural beings before Sophie walked down the aisle. Still, it turned out all right in the end. And Aziraphale and Crowley were both given some wedding cake and a centerpiece as thanks. Crowley took the centerpiece more out of politeness because he didn't want to offend the Son of Lucifer, no matter how mild mannered he now claimed to be. Aziraphale genuinely liked the cake.

Best man/maid of honor
Adam elected not to have a best man. He didn't want to choose between Brian and Wensley (and Pepper who argued that women could be best men too now) so he just asked his friends to show up.

Sophie's maid of honor was her sister, Sinead to came over from America to help. However, as mentioned before, Sinead felt like there was hardly any real work to be done as things went so smoothly in the planning of the wedding.

If/what they wrote in their vows?
Since Sophie isn't very religious and Adam didn't want to do formal religious vows, they did write their own which mainly consisted of them promising to love one another as long as they both lived. Only a few noted that Adam's was a little strangely worded.

Adam: Sophie, I love you exactly as you are now and exactly as who you will be. I promise I'll never do anything to interfere with that.
Crowley: *whispering to Aziraphale* Not a loaded vow from the Son of Darkness at all.
Aziraphale: It's quite lovely, though.
Crowley: Are you crying?
Azirphale: ....No.

Who cried at the wedding?
Adam's mother who was so happy to see her son get married and only wished Mr. Young could have been there as well. Aziraphale might have teared up a bit. Or a lot. Any tears on Crowley's part were just tears of relief that he didn't have to deal with Armaggeddon a third time.

Which song did they have their first dance to?
The Death Cab for Cutie cover of "Earth Angel." It was the song that played in the cafe when Adam and Sophie had their first date. Crowley nearly elbowed a hole into Aziraphale's side when the song came on.

Crowley: If this gets any more apropos, I'm going to set something on fire.

Where did they go on their honeymoon?
They went to Italy as Sophie had always wanted to go there but had never been despite the close distance. They saw all the sights and ruins and originally were also planning on seeing the Vatican as well. However, on the day they were supposed to go, it stormed quite a bit and so Adam and Sophie elected to stay in their hotel in Rome instead. Adam thought it was just as well.

This is all beyond lovely! I've always loved these two as a couple, especially Adam's sweet way of smoothing life for Sophie, while doing his best to not smooth it too much.

The bachelor party and Aziraphale and Crowley's defence of the wedding are both very sweet. I love this meme!

I've been doing Tess and JJ's wedding, which is more of anti-wedding, since Tess is like 'I want to be married to you but not have to marry you' and JJ is like 'challenge accepted'.

I also did the ship meme for Bond and Angie, because AU romances are what I do now, apparently.

Yeah, this was a half done fic that was kind of crack. I had Aziraphale having intense, detail-oriented, redtape-like arguments with other angels to stop them from ruining the wedding while Crowley scared half the flowers at the venue back to life after a demon scorched a bunch of them.

Tess is like 'I want to be married to you but not have to marry you' and JJ is like 'challenge accepted'.

Hee! Yeah, I started to do this meme for Murphy and Lestrade, even though they don't get officially married. But they do have a celebration event of sorts.

Sherlock: Why do I need to attend? It's not even a wedding. Lestrade knows I hate gatherings, he's being pointedly irritating.
John: I'm pretty sure Lestrade had other reasons for having this party other than to annoy you, Sherlock.

I also did the ship meme for Bond and Angie,

Oh goody!

because AU romances are what I do now, apparently.

I began a fic of how Winnie and Elliot met. I mean, at this point it's almost like I'm writing original fiction. Except they all exist in a world and are surrounded by characters that are not mine. *SIGH*

I can 100% picture this, right down to Aziraphale pulling out official documents and citing sub-clause 8, page 45, paragraph 4.

But they do have a celebration event of sorts.

Yeah, that's kind of what Tess and JJ have, in the end. Tony informs JJ that it's not a wedding, it's a pleasant evening out. To which JJ replies 'yep! But with vows'.

Sherlock: Why do I need to attend? It's not even a wedding. Lestrade knows I hate gatherings, he's being pointedly irritating.
John: I'm pretty sure Lestrade had other reasons for having this party other than to annoy you, Sherlock.


Hahaha!

I do have John and Sarah's wedding done, and Siger and Dora's wedding, too. And, um, Harry and Mira's. Because this meme is awesome and all the headcanon.

I know. I have almost a whole fic of how Tess and JJ met, and Steve is the only character in it who is not my own creation. Welcome to the wonderful world of parent!fic.

Oh goody!

I do have the fic where Angie and Bond meet written, but I need to let it breathe for a bit because it went differently than I thought, and I might have ended up with a fic where Angie completely avoids getting involved in the world's problems. Which makes sense, but makes for a little bit of everything happening off-screen. Like, if it were being filmed, Angie would probably be happily making coffee while it was interspersed with scenes of Peggy and Bond kicking ass and taking names. Only we don't find out why they're doing that or how they do it.

Yup, it's all Aziraphale having fussy discussions and poring over papers with angels while Crowley and some demons are running around behind them, throwing holy water bombs at each other.

It's the meme that keeps on giving!

Welcome to the wonderful world of parent!fic.

I fought against it so hard. But...yeah.

Winnie talks and thinks a lot about everyone in the Marvel world and the Elementary world. But so far the only one to actually appear is Joan.

I also started (BECAUSE THIS IS MY LIFE NOW) a fic of the actual wedding of Winnie and Elliot. But strangely from Sherlock's POV. He's not exactly impressed with Elliot but as Tony Stark once said to him, thinking he was quoting Selena Gomez who was quoting Emily Dickinson, "The heart wants what it wants."

I do have the fic where Angie and Bond meet written,

*fist punching the air*

Which makes sense, but makes for a little bit of everything happening off-screen.

It's like all those Shakespeare plays where all the action happens off stage and everyone just stands around talking about it.

Haha! I love this a lot.

This reminds of Tony's reaction to Nora, which is basically him saying to many people (but not Steve) that she's really normal. To which everyone replies that that's probably a good thing.

Tony: I mean, she's nice. But she's just, like...a person with a life with a job and stuff. Like, if you talk to her, she just has conversations like a human being. I think she knits.
Pepper: Some people knit.
Tony: I don't know. It's weird. She's so normal, she's weird.
Pepper: I'm normal.
Tony: You are not, don't put yourself down like that.

I made an icon for that, once!



Jarvis also got in on this fic by accident and he and Angie became random best friends, which was weird. I think they bonded over being sidekicks. Howard and Q also become off-screen best friends, but that is part of the Stuff We Don't See.

Pepper: I'm normal.
Tony: You are not, don't put yourself down like that.


I hear this so clearly in Tony's voice.

Even though this wedding fic isn't set in the daemon-verse, I do have an image of Sherlock and Sid sitting together at the venue, being mildly judgmental.

Sherlock: He has fairly symmetrical features, which I suppose are pleasing to the eye.
Sid: The red panda as well. Very...fluffy fur. If that's to one's taste.

That icon is awesome!

Howard and Q also become off-screen best friends, but that is part of the Stuff We Don't See.

I still have that unfinished fic that was being done for your prompt of how Tony Stark and Q are connected. I nearly had the ending but then JARVIS flat out stopped talking and I've been rebooting in hopes it'll cooperate.

Oh God, I can hear this so perfectly in their voices. I like the idea of judgemental Uncle Sherlock.

If it makes Elliot feel any better, JJ is very enthusiastic about him. In fact, due to JJ's tendency to be very concerned about everyone's welfare when he's drunk, coupled with his tendency to forget he can hear, he often ends up yelling compliments at people while trying to take care of them, so if Elliot has been present with a drunk JJ there is a 104% chance JJ yelled something about being very proud of him and his life choices while sternly making sure he wasn't going to drive home.

Elliot: Um...we're already at home?
JJ: THAT'S GREAT! GOOD FOR YOU FOR MAKING RESPONSIBLE CHOICES! *bro hug*

No worries. I have stopped stories literally one paragraph from the end and not picked them up again for months. The brain moves in mysterious ways.

Hee!! This probably just amps up Elliot's determination never to get drunk in front of Winnie's family.

Heee! I have this headcanon that the first time JJ gets drunk, he's still underage, and calls Tony to come and get him because Tony will understand, and Tony takes him to the Tower and lets him sober up before he takes him home to face Steve's disappointed face.

Steve: *opens door*
JJ: I am a terrible person and I'm very sorry!
*slinks past into the house*
Tony: Yeah...he had a bit of a wild night. Don't be too hard on him. When I called me, I thought we were looking at burying a body, not too many beers on empty stomach, he was that upset about it.
Steve: He got drunk?
Tony: Yep! It was awesome, I finally got to see what you'd be like if you could get drunk. He told me to put on my seatbealt, and not to run red lights, even though my seatbelt was on and all the lights were green. And he told me he liked me just the way I was, and I should be proud of myself for just being me. I have to admit, no one's told me that since Mr Rogers in 1975; I was touched. Hey, was he a relation? Because that would make so much sense.
Steve: JJ got drunk?
Tony: Yep, Captain Listens-Well, I just said that.
Nora: *comes to the door* Does any one know why JJ just took his phone privileges away and grounded himself for the week?

Speaking of Q

*excited face*

I like the cuddly jumpers, not as fond of the shaggy hair. Though I do wonder if Ben Whishaw's magical faun hair naturally repels styling and they give up on it after a while.

Hair girl: *empties full bottle of gel, mould, mould, mould, shape, tame, comb* Aha!
*five seconds later, Ben looks like he's just frolicked in a forest*
Hair girl: Dammit! Just leave it!

Hahaha! Aw, JJ's a self-parenter in the disciplining department.

And Tony is totally the one everyone calls late at night when they did something wrong. Winnie totally called him when she snuck out for a party but then needed a ride.

Winnie: Everyone's drinking and I don't have money for a cab.
Tony: When your dad tries to ground you for eternity, we'll lead with you being responsible about calling for a sober driver.
Winnie: Evan promised me a ride back but he did three shots and passed out.
Tony: Teenage boys can be little shits like that.

His hair looks like someone tried to cut it shorter in order to keep it look less forest frolicked but the hair rebelled. So now it's stuck somewhere in the middle.

And let's face it, Tony loves that this is his lot in life.

Tony: Teenage boys can be little shits like that.

Tony: In fact, let me regale you with some stories of my misspent youth while we're taking you home.
Winnie: Do we have to?
Tony: Yes, Winnifred, because you did a bad thing and you need some sort of punishment. Let's start when I was twelve...
Winnie: Oh, God.

It is not my headcanon that Q finally went to the barber because he couldn't see any more and he got halfway through the haircut when there was a work emergency, and he bailed, leaving him with half tamed hair.

Bond: You look--
Q: If you ever want to be able to use a mobile phone again, do not finish that sentence, 007.

I'm off to have a massage now. Talk to you later!

Hee!

Bucky: You're grounded for a month.
Winnie: Uncle Tony told me about his adolescent years on the way over here.
Bucky: Really? Okay, you're grounded for a week.

That about sounds right.

Enjoy your massage!
