    Summary

    It’s a few days before her graduation from Chilton, but Rory Gilmore has a lot more on her mind than being the valedictorian. She’s just discovered something life-changing, she’s pregnant and her boyfriend, the father, has skipped town. What will she do—keep the baby or figure something else out? With no way to contact Jess, things seem impossible. What will she do, and how will she navigate something that can’t be taught from a book?

    Summary

    A rewrite of the Jess/Rory relationship, starting from the very first time we see Jess. What would've happened if Rory had broken up with Dean sooner? And what if Rory and Jess communicated properly? Could Jess and Lane be friends? The work features both beloved scenes from the series and things that happened off-camera. It will also show Lorelai and Luke getting together and making it work without any (successful) meddling from other characters.

    Summary

    He stops, so she does too, albeit with a bit less grace. Then he grabs the sleeve of her coat and gently tugs her toward a bench with a quiet, “C’mere,” and it’s stupid, it’s ridiculous, but it gives her goosebumps. “Sit down, it’s gonna snow.”

    Rory’s breath catches in her throat. Absurdly, ridiculously, she thinks: oh no. Dares to ask, “How can you tell?” and sincerely hopes his answer is something sarcastic and obvious like I checked the forecast this morning, how else?

    Instead: “I can smell it. Sit.”

    Summary

    Jess Mariano is keeping things simple. Sure, he's single at 38, has a stable career and is the poster boy for a suitable groom, even though his most permanent relationship walked out with his heart and expresso machine. He's great. He's living life vicariously. But is he? What happens when he's forced to take charge of his sister Danielle Doula Jenkins?

    Danielle 'Dani' Jenkins is the resident bad girl of Stars Hollow. Known for wearing clothes to die for, an attitude considered disturbing by Stars Hollow standards, but having a dark secret below her tough demeanour. All she wants is freedom and a fresh start from the ghastly snow-globe town of Stars Hollow- a real Wonderland instigated by psychedelics... or something. What happens when she gets her wish where an act of rebellion sends her packing to The City of Brotherly Love to her big brother Jess Mariano, a person she barely knows?

    Will these two be the person they unknowingly needed in their mediocre lives, whether they like the circumstances or not?

    Summary

    Jess straightens and considers Rory for a second too long. Then, “I don’t remember the part where we stopped being friends.”

    The relief that rushes through her is white hot. It has her smiling uninhibited, almost laughing. “Cool,” she says, half-giddy. “Um. Night, Jess.”

    He smiles back, softer, easier than before. “Night, Rory.”

    She spares him a last look before pushing out of the diner, heading across the summer rain-wet asphalt, not noticing Dean stepping out of Doose’s at the same time.

    Unfortunately, he notices her.

    or: the one where jess and rory actually communicate.

    Summary

    After a small walk, Jess feels confident enough in his verdict. Stars Hollow is alright, if you are into small, rustic, quaint little New England towns, with their charming ninety-five percent white population, abrasive displays of compulsory heterosexuality, and twelve stores devoted entirely to peddling porcelain unicorns. He absolutely hates it, despises being kidnapped and marooned in such a boring, asphyxiating little village. But— but!— it doesn’t matter, at the end of the day. He’s a practical guy. He has his books. He has his music. He will be eighteen in a few months. He will figure out how to earn some quick money in this godforsaken corner of rural America and he will be out of here, foot on the pedal, Liz Phair on the radio. This town won’t fuck with him.

    (because there's never enough trans!Jess fanfiction in the world)

    Summary

    Rory had long rationalized her relationship with Jess down to a combination of misdirected friendship and teenage lust, and she was sure he felt the same way. So when he suddenly goes silent after she sends him her latest chapter, she's not expecting what she finds when she tracks him down. And now nothing will ever be the same. A prelude to "Daddy Shark."

    Summary

    Rory Gilmore is a self-proclaimed failure. Living in a small town and a small bookstore, she's closed off to the world and everything else. She has books, close friends and a long list of failed romances.

    That all changes when a handsome, brooding bestselling author enters her bookstore. And he takes a sudden interest in her. Through steps forward and back, Rory takes control of her destiny and the scars she bore on herself and learns an important lesson- that below the surface, there can be enough darkness to shroud a lifetime, but all it takes is to leave a light on.

    Title taken from- Leave the Light On by Maggie Rogers
