Having her college graduation happen on the same weekend as Mother's Day weekend meant a lot of celebrating. There had been a post ceremony dinner where Max complained about the lack of entertainment at this ceremony versus the one at Fandom four years early. Both Isabel & Wyatt had thrown rolls from the bread basket at him. Blowing bubbles and batting a beach ball about the amongst the graduate chairs was more fun the beating up fairies and fighting for your life. Mostly. Okay, maybe Isabel did feel a little nostalgic for graduation battle when some of the speeches dragged on.

Sunday and Mother's day meant brunch and then tourist time on the Strip with her parents.

All and all, it was a great weekend.

But now everyone had gone home and Isabel was content to settle in on the couch and work on some wedding plans.

[Damn, my girl's a college graduate as of this weekend. For phone calls, emails, surprise visits or the fiancee if he's around.]

Wyatt dropped himself down on the couch. "So, are we supposed to go out and find jobs now?" he said. His own graduation was next weekend, but he was done with all his classes now.

Isabel looked up from her laptop ( Where she'd been pondering exactly how many variations on mason jar center pieces there were on Pinterest's wedding board) and grinned. "No body's said anything to me so I figure I'll keep turning up to work at the hotel as long as they're willing to keep paying me. You, on the other hand, might have to hit the Elders up for a paycheck and a pension plan."

"Hey, demon hunting can be a full time job," Wyatt said, putting his arm around her shoulders. "But fixing the manor can be a pain. We have glass stores and clock repair on speed dial."

"Now I see," she teased, shifting a bit to lean into Wyatt's side. "You're marrying me for the alien-fu. It'll probably cut the household repair budget in half."

"Exactly," Wyatt said with a sigh. "You have no idea how many times we've had to fix that old grandfather clock. I swear, demons barge in and break it just to announce themselves."

"Well come on, it's no fun to just appear and go straight for the kill. They need to make the pretentious speeches first." From what almost five years of dating Wyatt had shown her, demons were kind of predictable.

"It's part of the demon package or something," Wyatt said, shaking his head. "But I can't complain since it usually gives me the opening I need to vanquish them."

"Nope, no complaining. Quick vanquishings are best. They don't interfere with date night." Unless it was demon hunting date night.

"And speaking of date nights, it'll be nice to have them now that we don't have to fit them in around classes and homework."

The couple that hunts demons together stays together?

"Wait, we're engaged," Wyatt said, keeping a straight face. "I don't have to still take you out on dates now, do I?"

"At least till the wedding. After that, it's pajama pants by six at night and Jeopardy on the TV," Isabel grinned. "Wild times."

"But there's still going to be sex, right?" Wyatt said.

Were they sure Cole wasn't his father?

"I think it'll all depend on who takes the 2 a.m. feedings when the time comes." Sleep deprived mommas are not happy campers.

"Can't I just orb her a bottle?" Wyatt said. That totally wouldn't be an abuse of his powers. In fact, if Victoria was anything like him, she'd be orbing bottles to herself before long.

"Maybe once she can hold it herself but I think they need a little help in the beginning." At least that's what it seemed like in the movies. Poor Victoria, hopefully the learning curve wouldn't be too steep.

"But I think we have to get through the wedding first. Before we start planning who's on diaper detail."

"...don't you have every detail of that planned out already?" Wyatt asked. He was definitely working toward getting thwapped.

Thwapped...elbow to the ribs. Same difference.

"Not all of them." Maybe 95% at this point. "There's a still a few key details that need to be worked out."

Date: 2012-05-15 03:09 am (UTC)
From: [personal profile] blessed_twice
"Such as?" Wyatt prompted.

He wasn't entirely blind to the level of organization needed to plan a wedding, but he was happy to let her handle most of the details.

Smart boy. Just turn up in a tux at the appropriate time on the right day and all would be well.

"The biggest thing is who's going to be doing the service. I guess I need to track down a justice of the peace or something."

"Unless you're down for a Wiccan ceremony," Wyatt suggested. "Could see if Grams could come down and do it. She married Mom and Dad."

Though he had to wonder how they worked out the legalities of that.

"That's an option. And it would be nice to have family involved." It was a nice idea, and it would certainly be more meaningful then some random official. But who would do the paperwork? "But would it be legal? Maybe we can convince Bel or Ronan or someone to register with one of those online sites and become an internet minister. It could be a joint ceremony."

Wyatt snickered. "Except if it's Ronan, when we get to the 'you may now kiss the bride' part, he'll consider it an invitation to kiss the bride himself. And the groom."

"And wouldn't that make for some interesting pictures in the album," Isabel snickered. "Well kids, that's when dad and I got married. And accidentally married Uncle Ronan at the same time."

"Well, polygamy's legal in about 20 states in my time," Wyatt said, pretending to look thoughtful. "It could happen."

While she wasn't a huge political junkie, thanks to Josh Lyman's influence one long ago semester in Fandom, Isabel had a pretty decent handle on the politics of the day. "Okay, now I want you to orb the entire current Republican leadership to the future. Just to make their heads explode."

"Nah," Wyatt said, keeping his face Perfectly Serious. "They'd get too excited about President Palin."

One eyebrow raised in an arc of Holy Crap. "Now that is one scary, scary thought. I might need to rethink the whole moving to San Francisco thing."
