    Summary

    Slow burn, post-original series, not AYITL compliant/fix-it. The current story spans from 2007-2025 and will have a lot of near-misses, but it complies with the idea that every generation builds on the mistakes of the ones that came before them.

    Summary

    Flash forward to 2019, almost 3 years after the final four words. Post-AYITL.

    Two years later, Rory and Jess have developed an incredibly close bond, despite any remaining feelings that might still linger within the both of them. They are both also trying to figure out what will be the next step for each of them, as Rory begins her first year as an English teacher at her alma mater and Jess struggles to find inspiration for his next novel.
    Luke and Lorelai enjoy married life, until the subject of kids is brought up again and they are faced with some important decisions to be made. Rory and Logan also struggle to co-parent, due to their still very complicated relationship.

    (I'm very bad at summaries so, to 'sum it up in one sentence, this is basically what I would want if there was ever another season of A Year In The Life)

    Summary

    Jess is new to town, maybe Stars Hollow is what he needed to recover from his wounds.

    AU - I felt like the original series didn’t delve enough into Jess’ history, I always felt his past was what really created his tough exterior.
    This AU has a lot of what the original does with a little tweaks here and there - basically if I wrote the series, some things would be different :)
