1. Song: Against all Odds – Phil Collins
Pairing: Caroline & Arthur (Family fic)
Caroline Knapp Shappey watches her precious son straighten his tie. He looks so happy that it seems almost obscene.
He’s marrying a good girl, she tells herself someone who genuinely loves him for himself with all his quirks and here she is being the stereotypical overbearing mother who won’t let her fledgling go.
Martin and Douglas are here to hold his hand (literally). She smiles when he leaves off straightening the tie for the umpteenth time and says, ”Mum? Are you going to be ok?”
“Of course you silly boy!”she exclaims,” This is your day and you are going to be -“
“No dear heart, you’re going to be brilliant.”
