"The Postman Cometh" new fanfic! (its MAG by the way)
What if Mary Ann had a different reason for making the castaways believe she had a boyfriend at home? I once had a dream after watching this episode that Mary Ann came right out and told Gilligan that she liked him. Of course I didn't write this little fanfic like it happend in my dream, cuz all my dreams are just cut straight to the point. This fanfic takes place after "The Postman Cometh" episode. This is Mary Ann/Gilligan so if you like Mary Ann/Professor, this might not be your kind of fanfic.
I do not own Gilligan's Island, the characters, the island itself, not even the props!
This is my very first fanfic, so please be nice, even though criticism is very welcome. Please comment, very much appreciated!
OK here it is:
Mary Ann couldn't help feeling disappointed in herself. After all the trouble she had gone through to impress Gilligan, she only ended up making herself look like a fool. She wondered what Gilligan thought about her now.
"Mary Ann, do you know where my blush went?" Ginger asked from where she was sitting at the dressing table.
"No... I haven't used it lately." Mary Ann tried to remember if she really had or not.
"Hmm...now where...?" Ginger muttered, more to herself than anybody.
Mary Ann thought for a moment, trying to make up her mind about something. After a minute or two, Mary Ann came to a decision.
"Ginger, can I ask you something?" Ginger was still busy looking around for her beloved blush as she answered.
"Hmm?" Ginger asked, absentmindedly.
Mary Ann was quiet for a moment, then said, "There's somebody I like, and I don't know if he likes me back. I really want to tell him, but I don't know if I should. Because if I tell him, I'm afraid that he might be a little...I don't know, I might be putting him in an awkward place. And its not just that... I'm afraid of being told something other than what I want to hear."
Ginger looked up with sudden interest. "Is it somebody at home... or here?"
"Here." Mary Ann looked down at her lap.
Ginger looked at her for a moment. "Its Gilligan, isn't it?"
Mary Ann blushed, and said almost too quiet for Ginger to hear, "Yes."
Ginger stared at Mary Ann for awhile, and then a small smile came to her face. "Mary Ann, I doubt you'll have any of those troubles at all."
"What?" Mary Ann asked, curious.
"Because. This is Gilligan. Its not like he's going to shame you for it. He's not that kind of person. Besides, I think he likes you too." Ginger turned back to her reflection in the mirror.
"How do you know?" Mary Ann asked, surprised.
"Oh Mary Ann, isn't it obvious?" Ginger asked, as if she should know.
"No." Mary Ann said, confused.
Ginger sighed. "Don't you notice the way he looks at you? And why else do you think he always offers to set the table for you? You should let him some time..."
"Ginger that doesn't mean anything.. he could just be trying to be nice." Mary Ann said.
"OK well, what about that time the Howells tried to put you and Gilligan together? He didn't seem to mind much!"
"Ginger! Thats not true! He was just as awkward as I was!" Although Mary Ann couldn't help but smile at the memory.
"Thats what you think. OK, who is always the first one to offer to help you... on anything at all?" Ginger asked. She knew what Mary Ann's answer should be.
Mary Ann knew she was defeated. "Gilligan."
"Well? Think about it Mary Ann!" Ginger smiled, satisfied that she had won the arguement.
"But Ginger, what if its because he's just nice. What if you have it all wrong?" Mary Ann couldn't help worrying about this.
"Believe me Mary Ann, he likes you." Ginger said, serious now.
"You really think so?" Mary Ann asked, full of hope now.
"I'm 99 percent positive." Ginger said. "Are you going to tell him?"
"I guess, but I don't know how." Mary Ann looked down at her lap again. Another dilemma.
"You don't know how? Just tell him. Everything. And make sure he listens and doesn't talk until you're through." Ginger said, as if it were nothing.
"You make it sound so easy." Mary Ann said.
"It is that easy Mary Ann. You're the one who is making it harder." Ginger said, knowingly.
Mary Ann thought for a moment and then looked up at her friend. "I'll tell him. So, you better be right!"
Ginger smiled back at her. "Don't worry, you'll be fine."
After dinner that night, Mary Ann saw Gilligan get up from the table to leave. She went over to him and caught him by the arm. "Gilligan, after I'm done cleaning up, would you take a walk with me?"
Gilligan looked surprised. "Uh, sure Mary Ann."
Mary Ann smiled at him, relieved he'd said yes. "Thanks, see you in a few minutes."
Gilligan just nodded, curious as to why Mary Ann would be asking him to go on a walk with her. "OK Mary Ann."
"Hi Gilligan, I'm ready." Mary Ann said nervously, after she found Gilligan.
Gilligan nodded. He didn't have much to say at the moment. Mainly because he was scared out of his wits. Not because he was walking with Mary Ann, but because of what he wanted to tell her.
After a few minutes of walking in awkward silence, Mary Ann stopped in the middle of a clearing. She turned to face Gilligan. "Gilligan, I need to tell you something."
Boy, you too? "OK." Gilligan managed to say.
"I just need you to do one thing though. Wait till I'm through to talk, OK Gilligan?" Mary Ann took Ginger's advice into consideration.
Gilligan nodded, curious.
Mary Ann took a deep breath. "Gilligan, do you remember a week ago, when I told everybody I had a boyfriend back home?"
Gilligan nodded, remembering not to talk.
Mary Ann continued. "I asked you to throw that bottle with the note in it into the lagoon so that my pretend boyfriend would get it. And I told everybody that the reason I did that is because I wanted you to think I was loved too, like Ginger. Well, that was true, but it wasn't the real reason I did that. I didn't even mean for the others to think I had a boyfriend at home. It was just you that I wanted to know. I was trying to make you believe that I had a boyfriend because I really wanted to make you...well, care. I guess maybe, I was trying to make you jealous even. Jealous of what, I don't know. But it seemed like a good idea at the time. It was a dumb thing to do, I know."
Mary Ann looked up at Gilligan nervously and took another deep breath. Gilligan looked just as nervous as she was. "Gilligan, I guess what I'm trying to say is that...that I...that I like you... a lot. More than as a friend I mean. I know that you probably don't like me the same way...but I just had to tell you."
Mary Ann looked down again. Her face was burning up from embarrassment. She was too nervous and scared to look at Gilligan.
Gilligan hoped she was done talking so that he could talk. There was so much he wanted to tell her now. After a moment or two of silence, Gilligan decided she was done.
"Mary Ann...I don't think what you did was dumb. Cause at first, when I still thought you had a boyfriend... I guess I really was a little.. jealous. Your idea worked, so I guess that makes it not so dumb." He paused. What was he talking about? He decided he needed to get to the point.
"I guess what I'm trying to say is...I really like you too, Mary Ann..as more than a friend. I was going to tell you tonight, but you beat me to it." It was Gilligan's turn to be embarrassed as he looked down, as Mary Ann had done.
Now Mary Ann looked up at him and smiled. She couldn't believe it. Even though Ginger had told her that Gilligan liked her, she still couldn't believe it. She was happier than she had ever been her whole life. Or at least it felt that way.
Without warning, she squealed and hugged Gilligan, knocking him over into the sand. She giggled and hugged him happily.
Gilligan was shocked. He didn't know how to react. He'd never had a girlfriend before, much less ever met another girl that he truly liked. And here was the prettiest, sweetest girl he had ever met and she liked him too. He suddenly smiled, and hugged her back, because everything was perfect.
Mary Ann stopped giggling and smiled at him, beaming with happiness. "I love you!" She said, almost too enthusiastically.
Gilligan was astonished now. He hadn't expected her to like him, but she loved him? He smiled, as happy as she was. "I love you too."
Mary Ann's smile turned into an even bigger one and she cupped his cheek with her hand. She slowly bent down and gave him a gentle kiss on the lips.
Gilligan looked up at her, too shocked to smile. He had never really kissed a girl before. he had been kissed by a girl but hadn't kissed her back. This was all knew to him.
He couldn't help but take her face into his hand and gently pulled her down to him. He didn't know how he knew how to do it, but he kissed her back, a soft, lingering kiss.
When the kiss ended, Mary Ann smiled at him.
They simply sat there, staring at each other with the smiles glued on their faces. This went on for almost five minutes before Gilligan finally broke the comfortable silence. "What now?"
"What do you mean?" Mary Ann asked, still smiling.
"I mean, uh..." Not knowing what he meant, Gilligan repeated the question. "What now?"
For some odd reason, Mary Ann seemed to understand this second time. "Well, I guess we're a couple." Mary Ann liked the sound of that.
Gilligan also liked the sound of that too. Mary Ann leaned over from where she was sitting and gave him a quick kiss on the cheek. Gilligan suddenly had athought that bothered him.
"Mary Ann, you know how you live in Kansas, and I live in Hawaii?"
Mary Ann nodded, not too sure at what he was getting at.
"Well, when we're rescued, do you think we'll still be... you know, together? You and me?" Gilligan asked.
Mary Ann thought this over. "Sure. Why not?"
Gilligan wasn't satisfied with this. "But Hawaii and Kansas are so far away from each other."
Mary Ann looked at him and understood what he was trying to ask. "Gilligan, I don't think something like distance could keep us from loving each other."
"You think so?" Gilligan asked.
"I know so. Besides, I could always take another vacation to Hawaii." Mary Ann smiled at him.
Gilligan smiled back at her. "You would?"
"Uh huh." With that said, Gilligan kissed her again.
Skipper: Gilligan, why don't you stop that. You don't know anything about space.
Gilligan: I know one thing about it. You take up more of it than I do.
Skipper: (Talking about Gilligan) I don't dislike him. I mean, it's just that I'd like to kill him every now and then.
Gilligan: Mrs. Howell, I might blow up.
Lovey: Oh, don't you dare get angry with me!
