Title: Legalized
Characters: JD/Perry
Rating: G
Description: A conversation that took place about half an hour ago, today, May 15, 2008.




Perry frowned, glancing down at his pager, feeling a sudden stab of alarm when he read the message there:

Call me RIGHT NOW!! JD

"Shit," he muttered, and Carla looked up, arching her eyebrow at him. He shook his head. "Can you finish up here?" he asked, nodding at the patient they'd just extubated.

"No problem," she assured him, and he nodded his thanks, snapping off his gloves and hurrying out of the room. Once in the hall, he pulled out his cell, and hit speed dial 1, trying not to imagine what could have happened that would make his husband freak out like that.

It barely rang once. "Hello?"

"Hey, babe," Perry said, alarm growing at the breathless note in JD's voice. God, what was going on? Was it Jack...? "What's going on? Are you okay?"

"Wanna get married? Legally?"

Perry arched his eyebrows. "What?" he said, mind still reeling a little. "What're you talking about?"

"The California Supreme Court just legalized it!" JD replied, sounding as if he were literally bouncing. "I got the e-mail, and it's legal now, and we can and no more domestic partnership, actual marriage and you'll really be my husband legally, not just 'cause we say and when do you want to?"

Perry blinked, then grinned, broadly, causing a passing intern to glance at him warily before scooting around him. "How about tomorrow?" he said, hearing his own voice crack. "Damn, Newbie, you'd better not be joking!"

"Would I joke about this?" JD asked, and Perry could easily picture his enormous grin. "And I was thinking...how about our anniversary? Is this a good first anniversary present or what?"

"So Monday," Perry said, trying to remember his schedule. "God, that's perfect. Can you call and schedule? Shit, babe..." he slumped against the nurse's station, running a hand over his scruff of a beard and blinking rapidly. "This...this is..."

"I'm on it," JD replied, still sounding giddy. "And...yeah! It's finally...we can...I...God, Perry, I can't believe it!"

Perry didn't even try to stop the tears now. "Me neither, kiddo," he whispered. "Hey. I'm gonna see if Anderson can cover the rest of my shift. You at home?"

"On my way," JD replied, his voice softening a little. "I ran out and got us champagne and some sparkling cider for Jack. There's a big public celebration at San Vicente and Santa Monica Boulevards at seven tonight...we're going, right?"

"Definitely," Perry said, grinning so hard his face hurt. "I'll see you soon."

"Perry?" JD's grin was purely audible. "I love you."

"I love you too, John," Perry whispered.

Yay! So adorable :3

I'm glad Cali was intelligent enough to do this. I voted in favor of it in Wisconsin, but the people here are so stupid that it didn't go through. I'd never been so ashamed of my state until that point. At least I'm moving to So Cal next year! :D

... but I had to jump on the bandwagon and say, "YAY!!!"
I was in a music mood today, so I did not listen to the news. Once again, the lovely folks in fandom keep me informed of important issues..... and make me smile so hard my face hurts!

Legalization may just be one of the best things to ever hit the ENTIRE coalition of slash fans and writers, EVER.

Since everything is set in Cali, you know. Or at least related somehow to it.

:D!

FUCK YEAH MARRIAGE

I LOVE THIS. And the awesomest part is that, even though this is fiction, this prolly happened for a lot of couples. :] I'm so happy.

And I, um. Really, really loved Perry calling JD "babe." Made me smile super-huge. =D

Yeah, I'm behind the times, and I'm new to this journal (oh, but I love it so... its utterly amazing), (by the way, while I'm here, I read Changeling and its the best fic I've ever read, hands down, its amazing in ways I'm not sure my brain can work out...), anyway, I had to cave and comment on this.

This fic made me cry tears of joy. I'm not kidding, I'm scared for my laptop's integrity now that its wet. One, I couldn't be happier for the Cali legalization (I'm in Vegas, one border away!), and two, this fic somehow made JD and Per seem... real. Like for a second, I forgot that I was reading a -fanfiction- and my mind slipped into reading, I dunno, a transcript from CNN or something. Its weird, but you personified the joy we all felt the day we got what we wanted in Cali in people that I would have sworn were having this conversation in front of me, with my OTP nonetheless. I'm reading all the rest of your fic now. (Still, AMAZING. Have you considered a sequel to Changling?)
