A/N: Hi, everyone! I'm back! The updates will be very sporadic due to the fact that I have TWO retail jobs during the holiday season (call me crazy...go ahead), but I will try to spend more of my time writing! The news of the revival (can't wait) made me write another chapter that I believe will more than make up for this crazy, long absence.

I know I said the next chapter would be the board confirmation, but let's just speed things up and say it happened and that Rory and Logan are decorating their apartment and working on their future together!

It is not beta-ed, so all mistakes are my own!

I don't own Gilmore Girls! None of the characters are mine, the plot (of this fic) is, but the characters are ASP's!


1 month later

Logan walks into his and Rory's apartment and finds Rory sitting at the kitchen counter typing on her laptop.

"Whatcha doin'?" Logan asks.

Rory jumps at the sudden sound of Logan's voice and says, "Oh, Logan! You scared me!"

Logan laughs and says, "Sorry, Ace. I just thought I'd come home to see what you were up to."

"Not much. Just making a final list of things I need to buy for the apartment." Rory turns to look at Logan and cocks her head to the left and asks, "Why are you home? Didn't you and Mitchum have some crazy meeting today?"

"We did. It was this morning and it went perfectly. Dad wanted you there, but knew you could really use the day off. I told him I'd let you read the notes from his secretary, which should already be in your email." Logan replies.

Rory stands up off the barstool and walks over to Logan and hugs him. She places a quick kiss to his lips and says, "Thanks. I'll read them later."

"No problem." Logan replies while returning Rory's hug.

Logan then looks at the list Rory was working on and smiles. He says, "Quite the list there, Ace."

"Yeah, I just wanted to make sure that I had a list of things we were missing. We can go together this weekend and do some shopping to get it all." Rory says.

"And as much fun as that sounds –", Logan sarcastically says, "–we actually have plans that don't involve shopping for –", Logan looks at the list and says the first items he sees, "–kitchen tongs and Tupperware bowls. Ace, really? That's what the registry is for."

"I know, but we need these items now. Who knows when we are going to get married? You haven't even proposed again." Rory begins one of her rants.

Logan reaches out and grabs Rory by the shoulders to stop her mid-rant and says, "Rory, look at me!"

"You called me by my name!" Rory exclaims.

"Yes, because what I'm about to say will change some of your perspective on things." Logan replies. "We have plans this weekend to go to a cute, little ski lodge Finn's father owns in Tasmania."

"Logan, you know I don't know how to ski. Me and physical activities end up being just more chances to laugh at how uncoordinated I really am." Rory replies with a sigh.

"You don't have to ski, Rory. It's a 5-star spa and resort. It has all the comforts of home and more. You can take pictures of me snowboarding. Even though, I'd love to teach you to ski. As your boyfriend, I feel it's my prerogative to get you out of your comfort zone as much as possible. I know you hate physical activity, but if you do this for me, I'll get a massage with you and we can always drink hot chocolate in front of the fire in our suite cuddled together. I promise even." Logan replies.

Rory's eyes lit up at Logan's promise and she asks, "Really? You'd do that for me?"

Logan laughs, "Yes, Ace. I'd do anything for you."

"You are the best boyfriend ever!" Rory exclaims.

Logan smiles and says, "As long as you at least strap on some skis and let me take you down the bunny slopes. I'll be there the whole time. I promise!

"Ok, but no pictures!" Rory exclaims.

"Oh, no! I need proof or no one will believe me." Logan replies.

"OK, one pic." Rory concedes.

"One pic of us in the snow. Me teaching my beautiful girlfriend to ski. I'll cherish it!" Logan says.

"You better! Because it will be the only time you will ever see it!" Rory laughs. " So, this weekend, huh?"

"Yeah, and next week." Logan comments.

Rory looks at Logan confused.

"Don't freak out. I talked to Dad and the board and they agreed that a vacation is just what we need. So, I called Finn and he set up our visit with his Dad." Logan comments after seeing Rory's confusion.

"OK. Yay! Thank you, Logan! You're the best!" Rory says excitedly.

"You remember that!" Logan replies.


24 hours later

Logan walks into their apartment to a whirlwind of activity. "Ace! He yells from the kitchen.

"In here!" Rory yells.

Logan could tell by how faint it was that Rory was in their bedroom, so he walks in that direction. Once he's in the bedroom, he realizes that he still can't find her. "Ace!" he yells again.

Logan knew she was in the bathroom, so he slips his suit jacket off, unties his tie, slips off his shoes, and rolls up his sleeves of his dress shirt. He then walks into the bathroom and locks the door behind him. "Why's the door unlocked?" Logan asks.

"So you could come in." Rory responds.

"Rory, with all the people out there working on the remodel, please be more careful. You can be so naïve about your safety sometimes. I love you so much. You need to be more careful. Remember, the master bedroom and bathroom doors both have locks on them for a reason. I have keys to both. I can always get in. OK?" Logan says.

"OK." Rory responds. "Want to come in? It's nice and warm."

Logan couldn't say no to a warm bath with the woman he loves in their fancy, new soaking tub that Rory had to have. He undresses and steps in and climbs in behind Rory. "This is nice." He exclaims. "We should do this more often."

Rory replies, "I agree."

Logan leans forward and kisses Rory where her neck and left shoulder meet. He inhales her scent and says, "I love you, Ace."

"I love you, too, Logan." Rory replies with a sigh as she leans back into the arms of the man she loves.

"Please remember to lock the door next time you do this. If something were to happen to you, I'd never forgive myself." Logan tells her with another light kiss where her shoulder and neck meet.

"I promise." Rory responds while raising her left hand to his neck and gives him a small love tap.


It is now the day that Rory and Logan leave for Tasmania. They spent the day before packing winter clothes, since it will be winter when they arrive there.

Logan wakes with the alarm and rolls over to wake Rory. "Ace." He whispers.

Rory grunts, but doesn't do much else.

"Ace." Logan states a little louder.

"What?" Rory grumbles into her pillow.

"It's time to wake up. We need to catch our plane to Australia. You can sleep on the plane, since it's such a long flight." Logan replies.

"Oh, ok, but you better have coffee, mister." Rory says as she sleepily sits up.

Logan gets out of bed after kissing Rory on her temple and leaves to get Rory's and his coffees from the kitchen.

Rory gets out of bed and goes to her closet. She changes into her previously picked out comfortable airplane clothes.

Logan walks back into the bedroom and hands Rory her coffee and then takes a sip of his own. He walks into his own closet and changes into the outfit Rory picked for their flight. Once he's changed, Logan leaves the bedroom to make sure their luggage is all packed into the car taking them to the airport. Once he's done, with that he goes back into their bedroom and notices that Rory is nowhere to be found. "Ace!" He yells.

"Bathroom!" Rory replies.

"Oh, thank God! You scared me." Logan replies.

"I'm not going anywhere, Logan. Just needed to use the bathroom. After all, today is going to be a long day. Exciting, but long." Rory says.

Logan takes Rory into his arms and kisses her on her right cheek. When he lets her go, he grabs her right hand and leads her out of their out of their bedroom, flipping lights out along the way. He leads her out of the apartment to the elevator and eventually to the town car that will be taking them to the airport.

"I'm so thankful that your Dad let us use the Huntzberger jet for this." Rory states.

"Me too." Logan replies sleepily while putting his right arm around Rory's shoulders.

"Taking this trip commercially would be a nightmare." Rory adds. "Why are we leaving at 3 AM again?"

"Because it takes 24 hours to get to Sydney then another three to get to Tasmania and another hour before we get to the hotel. We will need all the time we can get to get over the jet lag." Logan replies.

"How many stops?" Rory asks.

"Two for fuel. One in Los Angeles and another in Honolulu. We won't leave the plane either time. I promise. With as long as this flight is, we will have all the entertainment we can find. I have all your favorites and then of course you've got me at your indefinite disposal." Logan states full of innuendo.


24 hours later

Once the plane lands in Sydney, Logan and Rory get off the Huntzberger jet and go through customs. Once through, they get on a plane provided to them by Finn's Dad, which will take them to Tasmania.

Once in Tasmania, they get in a town car that takes them to the resort.

Both Rory and Logan are very happy to finally be in their suite. They both climb into the bed and sleep off their jet lag.


48 hours later

Once they adjusted to the time change, which in Rory's honest opinion, she still wasn't adjusted, but she definitely was better than she was 48 hours ago. Rory and Logan began to enjoy their vacation.

Rory acquiesced to Logan teaching her how to ski.

Once outside, Rory was very nervous about skiing and she was afraid she'd hurt herself. However, Logan had more faith in her than she did.

"You better not let go of my hand, Logan. I'm not built for activity like this. You know that and yet you still insist on teaching me to ski." Rory says.

"Don't worry, Ace. I'm right here. I'm aware that you think you aren't made for it, but I think you can do this." Logan replies with a small laugh.

"Really? Well, we'll see about that. When I fall flat on my ass and break my tailbone, you won't be laughing then. No, because you'll be spending the next two months helping me recover from said injury." Rory begins to rant.

"And if it does happen, then I'll gladly take your 'I told you so' and deal with the consequences. I, however, think you'll do just fine and will look back on this event for years and enjoy it. You may even want to do it again. Who knows?"

"OK." Rory replies skeptically.

So, hand in hand Rory and Logan somehow navigate the bunny slopes. Once they are back at the start of the slope, Logan lets go of Rory's hand and leans down to unstrap his snowboard from his feet.

"Logan, what are you doing? You said you wouldn't let go of my hand." Rory asks with fear and concern in her voice.

"I didn't. At least until we got back to level ground." Logan states with a placating tone in his voice.

"And you are taking off your snowboard?" Rory asks questioningly.

"Because I have a surprise for you and we need to remove the snowboard and skis to do it." Logan states. "Don't worry. The staff will collect them and return them to our suite for us." He leans down and unstraps Rory's skis and helps her step out of them.

A staff member seeing this walks over and collects the snowboard and skis. Logan hands him a small tip as a thank you.

At the mention of a surprise, Rory's eyes light up and she says, "A surprise for me? Logan, you don't have to surprise me with anything else. The trip is more than enough."

"Yes, I know. However, it just wouldn't be my style if I didn't try to surprise you around every corner." Logan replies.

"I know. It's one of the many reasons I love you." Rory states.

"And I love you. " Logan states as he grabs Rory's hand and begins to lead her close to a bench he's spotted nearby. Logan begins to clear the snow off of the bench so Rory can sit down on it without the snow soaking through her pants. Once he finishes, he offers for her to sit down with his hands, which she does.

Once Rory is seated, she pats the spot to the left of her gesturing for Logan to sit beside her.

Logan shakes his head no and squats down in front of Rory on his haunches. He grabs her hands and proceeds to remove her gloves. He rubs them in his for warmth.

"Logan, what are you doing?" Rory ask him.

Logan looks up at her with a smirk on his face and says, "You'll see." He then proceeds to remove his own gloves and places them next to Rory's on the ground beside him. He rubs his hands together for extra warmth. Logan reaches up and grabs Rory's hands and rubs them between his again. "Rory, my Ace." He says as he looks into Rory's eyes. "I love you so much that I just can't bear spending another day not knowing that we will last. I've lost you before and you have promised me that when I asked you this again that you'd give me the answer that I'm hoping for. I can't live without you. Rory –" Logan goes from his haunches to one knee. "–will you make me the happiest man alive and become my wife?"

During his speech, Rory began to realize what Logan was doing and began tearing up. Once he was finished, she had tears running down her cheeks and she couldn't speak. So, in answer to his question she nodded her head yes.

Once Logan noticed the tears Rory had falling, he let go of her hands and began to wipe them away. "I need to hear you say it, Rory." He states.

Among her heavy breathing, Rory manages to whisper a, "yes" out.

"Oh, thank God!" Logan says with a sigh of relief as he gets off the ground and sits down on the bench beside her. "Breathe, Ace. Breathe."

With help from Logan's coaching, Rory's breathing begins to even back out. "Oh, my God, Logan!" She exclaims. "Did you just propose?"

Logan sees Rory's chock and says, "Yes, Ace. I did, and you said yes!" He leans over and hugs Rory and says, "Ace, we're getting married!"

They both begin to laugh in pure happiness. Logan picks Rory up bridal style and spins her around.

When Logan pick Rory up off the bench, Rory shrieks, "Logan!"

Logan then proceeds to gently place Rory in the snow and then lays down beside her. "Yeah, Ace?" He asks with a laugh.

"You did just propose?" She asks in disbelief.

"Yes, Rory. I did." Logan replies. He leans over and kisses her on the cheek and the goes and digs in his coat pocket.

"What are you doing?" Rory asks.

"Looking for the ring." Logan replies.

"Ring? You have one?" Rory asks in shock.

"Yes, Ace. My Dad gave it to me right after we reconciled. He said that I should've had it all along, but with everything that happened, I'm glad that this is the ring I'm giving you. It was always meant to be the one I give the woman I marry." Logan replies. Logan finally locates it and pulls out the ring box. His hands were shaking lightly and he couldn't tell whether it was from the cold or his nerves. He opens the ring box and lets Rory see the ring inside.

"Oh, Logan!" Rory gasps. "It's beautiful!"

"Not as beautiful as you are, Ace. Not even close." Logan replies with a huge grin on his face. He takes the two carat diamond ring in a platinum setting out of the ring box and places it on Rory's left ring finger, where it will stay forever.

"Logan! I love you so much!" Rory says as she leans over and kisses Logan on the lips.

Logan then proceeds to gently place Rory in the snow and then lays down beside her. "Yeah, Ace?" He asks with a laugh.

"You did just propose?" She asks in disbelief.

"Yes, Rory. I did." Logan replies. He leans over and kisses her on the cheek and the goes and digs in his coat pocket.

"What are you doing?" Rory asks.

"Looking for the ring." Logan replies.

"Ring? You have one?" Rory asks in shock.

"Yes, Ace. My Dad gave it to me right after we reconciled. He said that I should've had it all along, but with everything that happened, I'm glad that this is the ring I'm giving you. It was always meant to be the one I give the woman I marry." Logan replies. Logan finally locates it and pulls out the ring box. His hands were shaking lightly and he couldn't tell whether it was from the cold or his nerves. He opens the ring box and lets Rory see the ring inside.

"Oh, Logan!" Rory gasps. "It's beautiful!"

"Not as beautiful as you are, Ace. Not even close." Logan replies with a huge grin on his face. He takes the two carat diamond ring in a platinum setting out of the ring box and places it on Rory's left ring finger, where it will stay forever.

"Logan! I love you so much!" Rory says as she leans over and kisses Logan on the lips.

Logan returns the kiss. He breaks it and says, "I love you too, Ace. More than anything else in the world. I never thought I'd get to find true love, but I have and I won't let you disappear again."

"Oh, Logan. I'm yours, sweetie. I'm not going anywhere. I'm yours, Logan, always." Rory says and then kisses Logan again.

Rory breaks the kiss and asks, "What did you mean by this ring being meant to be the ring you were to supposed to give to the woman you marry?"

"I mean that the ring I just gave you is the Huntzberger engagement ring. My Grandma wore it and before she passed she put it in a safe that only my Dad could open. This ring has waited inside a safe for 15 years for me to put it on the finger of the woman I will spend forever with. That woman is you, Ace. I couldn't be happier." Logan tells Rory.

During Logan's explanation, Rory begins tearing up. "Oh, Logan!" She says through the tears. "Of all the women, you want me. I don't deserve this. I don't deserve you."

"Ace! Rory! Look at me!" Logan says sternly.

"–Well, I'm yours, Rory! I'm not going anywhere! Why would I, when I have everything I could ever want right here in my arms. The ring is just a symbol to the world that we are each other's hearts and I am so glad to have been able to finally, after all this time, put it where it belongs." Logan continues. He reaches up and wipes her tears away. "No more tears, ok?"

"I'm so happy! I'm going to get to marry the man of my dreams." Rory squeals while jumping into Logan's arms and putting her head on his chest. "I love you, Logan!"

"I love you too, Rory." Logan says as he wraps his arms around her.

After a few moments, Rory untangles herself from Logan and stands up. She reaches down and reaches for Logan's hand.

He grabs her hand and pulls himself up to his feet. He bends over and gets their gloves off the ground. He puts his back on and finishes helping Rory put her gloves on.

"Aw, sad." Rory says with a little pout.

"Why?" Logan asks.

"That beautiful you just gave me all covered up with a glove." Rory comments.

"Yes, I know, but let's go inside and get warm with some hot chocolate and a fire. Maybe even something else that will help keep us warm." Logan says full of innuendo. "Besides, we've got to celebrate getting engaged properly.

"Now, that I'm all for." Rory states happily as she grabs Logan's hand and they walk back to the hotel, hand in hand, with the biggest smiles on their faces.


A/N: That's all for now! I certainly hope that was worth the extremely long wait. I hope it was sufficiently hidden within the chapter so you couldn't figure out why Logan was just randomly taking Rory on a ski trip. He did it so he could propose to Rory in the snow, but with it being August, he had to go somewhere were they had snow in August! I figured this set up was the most plausible.

Again, all errors are mine as this wasn't beta-ed.

Also, I have no clue when the next update will be, or as of yet, what it will be. Next week will be a busy one for me. We will see what we can do though!

Please review! I love them! Oh, and if you are a first time reader, welcome! I love seeing this fic get alerts after all this time!
