Notes/Warnings: Read the disclaimer on my LJ

The knock on the door was familiar despite the fact Don hadn't heard it in a month of Sundays. He unlocked the deadbolt and leaned against the open door.

Charlie stood there fingers tugging at the platinum ring on his left hand - the skin red from all the fussing he'd been been doing with it since he got married.

"What's up?"

"Don, who's at the door?" Robin's voice preceded her as she approached, wearing a long silky robe. She slipped an arm around Don's waist, leaning into him as he put his arm around her and pressed a kiss to her temple. "Oh hey, Charlie!" She flashed him a kindly smile.

Charlie just stared at Don, a wordless plea in his eyes, still as a statue save the hand twisting his wedding ring.

"Charlie was just leaving." Don put his hand on the door in preparation to close it.

"Oh! Okay. See you!" Robin wandered off as Don started to close the door.

"Don..." Charlie put his hand on the door to halt it. "Please."

Don lifted Charlie's hand from the door and ran his thumb over the metal band on his finger.

"You made your choice. So have I."

Okay, you guys! It's over! You can now go forth and happily forget I inflicted this on cesters and het fen both.

Poor boys!

This probably is what would happen. :(

The story needed telling. I'm sorry it wasn't more fun for the storyteller! ♥

You know, usually I enjoy my angst. This? Not so much. /frowns/

Onward to new and better angst! Hehehe

Oh God - How I love the angst, but you're probably right- this is how it would end......or would it?
Whu ha ha!!!??? (imagine accompanying music)

That's extra funny since I just got talked into publishing a Don/Charlie fic I threw together for comment_fic in which - you guessed it - Don and Charlie get back together after years apart and saying they weren't going to do that anymore. LOL

Thanks for reading!

*cries with the perfect inevitability of this*

It's okay. /pat pat/ It's only inevitable in this universe and this universe is over now.

Look, I'll send you a ficlet you can pretend is a happy sequel to this. That work for you? It's porny! It will cheer you up! :-)
