Summary: David signs his name to a document that will change his life forever
Notes/Warnings: Read the disclaimer on my LJ

Few events in David's life had been quite so momentous, so life-changing: applying for his first management position as Don's back up supervisor, proposing to Colby and asking to let him co-parent Tyler, standing up in front of their family and friends and saying 'I do'.

He'd read the document on the table in front of him over a dozen times. He knew it was almost identical to the one Colby had signed years ago, but somehow that didn't make it easier.

Other people, they didn't do it like this, but then David had known for a while he didn't live like other people.

But that didn't mean he didn't deserve a family of his own.

"David?" Colby's hand covered his in concern, giving it a squeeze. "You don't have to..."

"I'm ready." Without missing a beat David leaned forward and signed his name to the legal document, passing it to the notary to make official. It was only then he allowed himself to let out a long breath. "So what do we do now?" he asked.

Fran accepted the surrogate agreement from the notary with a smile.

"Now? The good part. We get started on making you a baby."

The Daddy!Colby series! Now featuring (or about to) Daddy!David!

I thought I'd had at least some preliminary discussions about what to name David's daughter, but I can't seem to find a record of them. Thus me being open for ideas as to what to name her. The only names I have off the top of my head are Vanessa and Deniece (Nessa or Niecy). Sinclair's a pretty good solid last name so I don't feel the need to futz the first name to make it work better.

So, any ideas? Or do I just name her Ruby after a particularly lovely David/Colby fan? ;-)

FWIW, Fran is the surrogate mother Colby rescued in an unwritten prequel who then offered him a baby in thanks - thus Tyler. This is her second time around with them, but she's a good friend to the couple by now so she's happy to be their surrogate for David's daughter.

Oh, the omniscience of fiction! At least we know that David's having a daughter. Hehehe

Very special thanks to beta t_vo0810 for her assistance with this fic.

Re: Confession
I should say something intelligent, but really, I just want to wrap myself up in this universe.

Re: Confession
How about 'Oh, it would be lovely if David's daughter were named Ruby!' or something like that?

I liked the sense of suredness in David here and I like the idea of their kids having the same mom. Not sure if Fran would be an occasional visitor in her children's lives.

FWIW I haven't decided if Fran is the biological mother or just the surrogate. She definitely is a friend of the family and when the kids get older they'll be told the full story of how they came to be: kids wanted so much it took more than one family to bring them to life. :-)

Me and my assumptions, I'm sure both children will be loved. I could see David being strict but a doting Dad all the same.
Emma DeMaraisemmademarais on April 20th, 2010 09:59 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I can see David being more of the disciplinarian, but given that apparently both of them lost their fathers early they should look at being fathers differently than most.

I'm just doing a reatch and am up to start of Season 5. The episode where David helped Bishop was really good. David has that streak of overcoming any limitations in him so he'd want the kids to do well.

Oh, yeah! Bishop! Yeah, he may have started out poorly with him, but he did what was right when it mattered and Bishop had to respect that. Yeah, he'd feel strongly about both of their kids reaching whatever goals they had even if he had to use a wrecking ball to knock down any barriers. :-)

*happy sigh* David-centric fic ftw. I love him. I can't even help it.

Daddy!David = ♥.

I don't really know what to say about the name. I think because I also love Alimi, I want David's kid to be name Ali somehow... Allison or Alexis, Ali for short. *shrugs* LOL.

Another lovely addition to this universe. *applauds

I love this series almost as much as NOO. I just have a horrible domestic kink ;) I think Ada would be a nice name and Charlie would recommend it.
