WillTheyOrWontThey Well, TheyDo.
They will, and [[TitleDrop They Do]].



If there has been an engaging "will it work?" plot up to this point, a TheyDo can induce a variation of ShippingBedDeath (or, of course, it can induce the standard brand if it doubles as a RelationshipUpgrade) -- in which case, cue a [[AuthorsSavingThrow last second split up]], one party getting run over [[PutOnABus by a bus]] or some other malarkey. Writers may try to avert this by segueing into a new kind of story -- [[ChangingOfTheGuard shifting the focus]] to a [[BetaCouple newer couple]] to keep the old romance plots open, or using the stable relationship to open up fresh new avenues for comedy, drama and adventure.

Contrast with MaybeEverAfter, which is when a romance arc ends without clearly confirming whether or not TheyDo.

* Kenny and Max of ''Series/PicketFences'' get a rather complicated TheyDo.

** ''Inquisition'' also gives this to [[VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins the male Warden]] who romanced Morrigan, since [[spoiler:they have a child together, and she and their son leave the Inquisition after defeating Corypheus to join him on his mission]]. Likewise, if the Warden romanced Leliana [[spoiler:and she's made Divine]], the epilogue slide mentions their reunion. Zevran, meanwhile, is absent from the game because he's traveling with a Warden he romanced, meaning that TheyDo already.

** While they don't really do anything formal (they are even too tired for TheirFirstTime), the ending of ''Batgirl'' reunites Stephanie Brown and Tim Drake, and they both conclude that they've been through enough together to want to lose one another again.
