A/N:  Wow.  The final chapter is upon us.  Man, I'm still in total shock.  But did you all like the talk with Randy and Silver in the last chap?  I hope so because I spent hours thinking about that and how it would go.  I still feel bad for Silver- but he will find a love for himself, I promise. ^^ But anyway, before I begin, I want to give a thanks to all my awesome reviewers:

~*~*~*~*Dark Silver's Thank-You's:~*~*~*~*

Ciara - Irish Emerald:  Silver says 'thank-you' for the hug.  He loves hugs. ^^ And thanks! I know I nearly lost it myself writing that chap.  Though, the emotional state I was in anyway helped me a lot to get into the moods and such of the characters.  Thank-you, Treasure Planet! ^_~ But at any rate, thanks so much, sweetie, and enjoy the final :sniff: chapter of Fire! ^_^

crazymax6987:  I know, I love Silver too. ^^ Too bad he's gay, huh?  Well, and make believe. :pouts: But ah well.  The one I hook him up with, (and with your inside info you know who it is, though the name may be changed,) will take good care and be his true love. ^^ I'm glad Randy forgave him too. After all the fights I've had to break up between them and all- it's nice that they've finally shook hands and buried the hatchet so to speak- err…um, knife…?  ^_~ Thanks for the review and I hope you like the epilogue.  Chat with you later, friend! ^_^

IceAngelDarkMoon:  I know, I'll miss this story too.  And I feel bad for Silver as well.  It just proves that anger is a horrible thing, and you never truly realize you love or miss something until it's too late.  Ok, and that was like mecha depressing. ;_;  Ok, Silver- time to brighten the moment.  Let's see- sunshine, lollypops, blue skies, beaches, chocolate, flowers, pretty butterflies...yeah.  Now I'm just scarring myself here.  -_-;;  But you're right- it will all work out for the best. ^^ Isn't inside info great?  See?  One of the many benefits from being my friend. ^^ Anyway, I know I'll miss it too, but hey, we still have Crimson Tears and the sequel to Crimson Tears, right?  Well, thanks so much for the always-wonderful review, Ici, and I'll be sure to catch you later!  Thanks again! ^_^

Skye Fate Blaine:  Hey friend! ^^ I know, it's that fine line between cheating and not cheating.  I was going to have a lemon between them and keep the story going longer- but then I got to thinking that it would be too mean to unleash upon Terran, Randy, and Silver.  So, yeah, I went with the kiss.  It's like when Mali and Storm shared that kiss at the end of Winter Light- pure and simple- and just out of realization that they love and still love each other.  ^^ So yeah, it's all good.  And don't worry, friend- Silver will find someone for himself.  Just stick with me through Crimson and it's sequel and you'll see. ^_~ Blossom promises. ^^ Anyway, thanks so much, Skye, and I'll be sure to talk to you soon!  Thanks again! ^_^

Dear Amara,

Wow.  These past six months have seemed like a dream.  I'm sorry that I haven't been keeping in touch, but things have been so busy around here.  So, how are you?  I hope all is well.  How are you and Tristan?  It must be, what?  Almost nine years by now?  I still can't believe it myself.  Two months already.  :sighs: I still feel like someone's gonna pinch me and I'll wake up from this dream.

I'm sorry you couldn't have come to our wedding.  You missed a great day.  Randy was so sweet.  He wrote me the most beautiful vows I had ever heard.  I swear, I lost it right then.  I wrote him a poem myself, but still- nothing in my opinion could ever top what he wrote to me.  It was beautiful.

And yep, I did take your advice and got married right by the water.  The beach, actually, where we had been on our first date.  I have to admit, Randy looked hot in that black tuxedo he wore.  Of course, he's hot anyway- soo.  :blushes three shades of red:

Can you believe it?  I'm actually married!  Me!  And to my dream guy.  It's all so much to take in.  I mean, sure it's hit me- and I'm so thankful that my love turned out to be him. 

Randy and I sold our apartments!  I know, you're thinking, 'what?  But you loved your apartment!'  I know, I did.  But if he and I are going to be together- forever- we decided to invest in a place of our own.  A beautiful, almost silvery-white chateau by Starlight Lake.  It's gorgeous, Amara.  You should see it.  In fact, why not drop by and visit us?  Both of you.  Write me back and let me know so I can give you our address, ok?

Right now we're on our honeymoon in Bermuda.  It's so gorgeous here.  Sunshine, palm trees, and the feeling of total bliss.  I know they consider this to be paradise- but my own version is the angel that's holding me in his arms as I write this. :content smile:

We're supposed to head back to Cali next week.  Both of us don't want to leave- but we know that honeymoons have to end someday.  But that's all right.  As long as I'm with my love- the honeymoon never ends.

We haven't heard from Silver since that day he and Randy made up.  I think about him a lot, and so does Randy.  I mean, he's so sweet- and he deserves to find a love of his own.  I only hope that when he does- it's as strong and eternal as the one that Randy and myself share.  I can see good in him, and he deserves everything beautiful that life has to give to him.

And as for starting a family?  Well- we're still in decision.  You see, we really don't want to adopt.  Randy and I want our own children.  From our own blood, our own genes.  It's not that we both dislike adoption- of course not- we just want to create our own child out of the love we share.

But technology still hasn't advanced to that level yet- so we await for when it is possible.  Though, I think between us- if that ever were to come- I would want to carry.  I wouldn't want Randy going through that.  But that's in the future- maybe.  If we never have children at all, well- then I guess we just weren't meant to.  We both agree that it isn't top priority.  Just being with each other and living eternity is the most important.

Oh, wow.  Look at how much I've written already!  I bet you're getting bored of me, right? :laughs:  I know, I know, you told me I was never boring.  Anyway, I'd love to talk more, but Randy and I have dinner plans.  I wonder if we'll be taking a walk on the beach?  I sure hope so.  And get of course, my goodnight kiss. :winks: 

Well, it was great talking to you again, best friend, and I'll be sure to respond when you do to my letter.  Let me know about the address thing.  We'd love to have you guys. 

Anyways, I must get going so I'll talk to you later, Amara.  Till then!

~And thus, concludes Fire and Ice. :breaks out into a sobbing fit:  Mommy, I don't want it to end! ;_; But I know it had to sometime.  But don't worry, guys- we still have Crimson Tears, and the sequel to Crimson Tears to look forward to, right?  ^^ At any rate, holy cheese balls!  I still can't believe that this is finally over.  :sniffs: It still seems like only yesterday. :sighs:  But I still want to give a thanks to all of you that were so sweet to review.  Even if you just read this and didn't leave me a review, I thank-you anyway. ^^ To all that have me on their favorite lists- to those that have actually talked to me- thank-you all the same. ^^ You're the reason for my writing. ^_^ And this is ZB/Silver/Junsei/Blossom/Trista/Captain Fluff signing off!  See ya around, everyone! ^_^
