William had planned to propose first thing, the ring a first present with their morning cup of tea, but then Colley… distracted him. It is, after all, the first Christmas where they haven’t had to be awake and out of bed on someone else’s timetable, woken up by exuberant nieces and nephews demanding that they go downstairs so the presents can be unwrapped. Then afterwards, Colley got in that mood of his where he wants everything done yesterday and half dragged William out of bed because there were potatoes to peel and turkey to put in the oven and yes, they really did have to have sprouts, it’s traditional.
Title: Modern DeGrancey
Characters: William De Lancey/Colquhoun Grant
Summary: William actually attempts to propose on Christmas morning but it doesn’t go quite according to plan. Set in the same universe as Christmas at Home.
Author’s Notes: Also for @onstraysod! I’m sorry, I can’t imagine that you wanted such a deluge of fic, but you asked me about the modern AU where the boys meet at university and it turns out I had another half-finished fic lingering in a neglected folder. So thank you for giving me the incentive to finish it! It isn’t exactly from when they are at Uni, but it follows on from this fic where William is about to propose at Christmas after the two of them have moved in together (sorry this is not very seasonally appropriate for April!).
