Title: The Question 1/2
Fandom: Sky High
Rating: G
Characters/Pairing: Zach/Magenta (futurefic)
Word count: 225
Summary: Zach wanted to be the one to ask this question, but what will Magenta’s answer be?

Disclaimer: None of the characters are mine, and I make no profit from this fan-written fiction.

Author's Note: Thanks to [personal profile] pyroblaze18 for the beta! I wanted to write something about the Sky High characters and had a look at a list of prompts in a drabblethon thingy. The prompt ‘marriage’ was for characters in another fandom entirely, and instead of writing about Layla, Warren and Will, which I’d thought I’d do, I was inspired to write this fluffy ficlet. Then, I found I couldn’t finish it there and wrote the second part.

This is technically in the same ‘verse as ‘Zach, He’s Here to Help’, but you don’t have to have read it.

The Question (1/2): shallowness
1. Popping the Question

It was Magenta who first asked him to dance, and, some months later, first asked him out.

“If we go see a movie, do you promise you won’t glow?”

“Uh, yeah. Sure.”

“Hmm, maybe we won’t go see a horror movie.”

She was the one who said it was about time they got an apartment together. They went to see so many places with the Strongholds that he picked one out of tiredness, sitting down on the stairs, unable to move.

“Looks like we’re going to take this one, Mrs Stronghold. Um, could you help Zach up, please, Mr Stronghold?”

“Sure thing Magenta!”

“Ouch! I can stand! I can stand!”

“What about walking?”

“I can totally do that too.”

“Put him down, Steve.”

Zach plans on asking Magenta to dance tonight. There’ll be candlelight, but no glowing – he’s gained plenty of control the past seven years, and for most of them, Magenta hasn’t been ashamed to be seen in his company. He guesses he’ll go down on one knee.

“What are you doing?”

“I wanted to be the one to ask. Magenta, will you marry me?”

He hopes several things: that he’s got the timing right and that she’ll say yes, because there’s no use pretending that he’d be cool with her saying no. He also really hopes that he doesn’t throw up.
