    Summary

Diana and Gilbert's path never crossed on the train that day because Gilbert left a day earlier than planned to make his journey to Toronto less stressful. However eight months later Anne discovers that Gilbert was never actually engaged to Winifred at all and therefore never married. Four years come to pass and they have only seen each other twice. Now Anne returns to Avonlea engaged to be married herself to Roy Gardener but it just so happens Gilbert Blythe arrives too and this time they no longer try to avoid one another. Will they finally communicate their love for one another or will they realize they have drifted even further apart? Will Gilbert arrive with a surprise of his own? Will Roy charm his way into Anne's life or will Gilbert outshine him? Let the battle commence.

    Summary

    January 13, 1911, Charlottetown.

    Gilbert Blythe, a 30-year-old medical examiner, and his police brother Sebastian Lacroix are assigned to investigate the murder of Anne Shirley, a famous theatre teacher and director of Canada's most prestigious art school. A disfigured and unidentifiable body has been found in the office of the young woman, adored and coveted by high society.Several people in Anne Shirley's entourage are suspected: Royal Gardener, her best friend, a journalist who helped her make a name for herself in high society; Charlie Sloane, her well-born but penniless and somewhat devoid of humanity fiancé. The officers can count on the help of Marilla Cuthbert and Susan Baker, the school's adoptive mother and housekeeper respectively.

    Gilbert finds himself increasingly disturbed by the case, especially by the large portrait of Anne in her office, causing him to develop feelings, even an obsession, for this woman he knows only through a painting and the words of those who knew her.

    But what if an unexpected outcome changed the course of the story? And who was actually Anne Shirley?

    Summary

    Anne and Gilbert did not end up together despite their mutual attraction to one another. Anne married Roy, and Gilbert eventually married Winifred. Both in marriages where they have perfect partners and in perfect picture marriages. The question is, how long can they tolerate being in a loveless unhappy marriage? Do they take the chance for a secret romance, or do they tolerate the question that keeps repeating in their head of what if?
    Loosely based off of Taylor Swift’s song Tolerate it.

    Summary

    This is a modern AU story, it takes a good while for Anne and Gilbert to actually meet because I wanted to create the atmosphere for their relationship to develop and really enjoyed weaving the strands of the story to get them in the same place at the same time. This story really uses the friendships between all the characters as it's base and we see how those friendships help to shape both Anne and Gilbert before they meet and then negotiate their own interactions. Resilience is a strong theme in this story as both Anne and Gilbert have experienced events in their pasts that lead to them making some major life changes. Don't really want to give too much away here, so I guess maybe just give it a go. AU is not everyone's cup of tea I know, however I hope you find that the situation/setting is AU but the characters are still true to the show.

    Summary

    "Madam, I'm sorry. Your husband was found dead this afternoon."

    With her mouth hanging open in shock, Anne could not grasp the strange feeling she felt deep inside. The policeman looked at her with a bewildered expression. She was not crying, she was just shaking her head before closing the door of her home.

    Summary

    'Almost cowardly, her eyes cling to the safe darkness, the shadows cornering her vision, instead of the marigold light setting the hazel forest of his eyes on fire. It was selfish of him really, to take something she loved so dearly as the woods and complicate it with... with them. '

    Summary

    There she was, sitting on his lap, both of them at the foot of a great tree to which life offered apples by the dozen. She was here in his arms, while he spun her around, her hair blowing in the wind; to the melody of their own beating hearts.

    And yet, every time he wanted to touch her, just to take her hand, it was as if she were a ghost that could be punctured in the heart without realizing it. It was all nothing more than an old dream where souls in pain sometimes wander, it seems.

    He knew he had to face the facts. He was not the one who would make her laugh, the one who would collect her every smile as if it were the most precious of collections, the man who would have the right to love her, to cherish her and to cover her with cloaks of love and warmth.

    Summary

    Anne only wanted to fit in. She wasn’t in any way interest in Gilbert Blythe, and she just wished he would stop telling everyone she was his future wife. She would never be with anyone so disgustingly immature.

    Or would she?

     

    Gilbert was going through a lot right now, and his friends where in no way helping. He was tired of being Gilbert Blythe. He needed an escape.

    Anne was the perfect distraction.

    Summary

    Just a boy
    And a girl
    In a little canoe
    With the moon shinin' all around

    --------------
    The early summer evening was still and warm. It was a little stifling, but the fragrance of Avonlea—of the wildflowers and the trees and even the grass—was a comfort to Anne. Of course she'd been back to Avonlea nearly every month since she'd been at Queens, but it would never stop being both a marvel and home. There was something about the seasons that felt so vivid here, in a way they weren't in Charlottetown.
    Her first—only—year at Queens had come to a close. Charlie and Jane had also managed to complete their courses in one year. The rest of the Avonlea students were staying for a second year.
    Well, not all, Anne reminded herself as she looked at the guests currently congregated on the Barry family lawn. Gilbert was here, too.
    --------------
    Set at the end of the school year after the events of 3x10, except that Anne didn't meet up with Winifred, Gilbert didn't meet up with Diana, and all Anne knows is that Gilbert didn't marry Winnie.

    Summary

    "Gilbert, I'm pregnant." 

    He gasped as he heard his wife's voice in his ear. It was like a deafening whisper inside him that in a gust of wind, of dust, unhooked his soul and shattered it into a thousand and one tears of rain. His heart began to bleed, his head was shaking, his eyes were searching for an escape, although his mind was already in the afterlife. 

    He began to run as fast as he could despite his wife's pleas. He strolled through the darkened Paris as the storm flooded his body and his inner fort.  

    As he passed the Eiffel Tower, he heard the troubadours singing the praises of love.  He saw people waltzing on the squares, the terraces, listening to the music that echoed the hymn of this devastating feeling.

    Summary

    "Nice to meet you Mr. Blythe but like I was saying I have requested to be represented by a female lawyer like us Suffragettes usually do." She kept on talking without giving him a chance to even answer: ", and I must say I would be indeed surprised to see a man, willing to represent a Suffragette who sometimes happens to be not on the peaceful side."

    Summary

    “Before he could move two paces a familiar voice echoed across the room. A burst of applause was followed by a sweet sing-song laugh, then more applause. He did not need to see the red hair, or her face, to know it was Anne.

    Gilbert could admit honestly Anne had rarely crossed his mind in the last four years. He had moved on from her rejection, funnelled the sadness into his school work that led to many achievements. Truthfully he was a happy man. He told Charlie Sloane that if it weren't for Anne turning him down the Cooper Prize wouldn't have been won so easily and the dream of medical school would have only been a dream. Just as Gilbert was about to take a step back to leave Anne looked up catching his eye.”

    ----

    Estranged friends Anne and Gilbert have not seen each other since their Redmond Convocation. A chance meeting in Toronto four years later will set off a series of events that will change their lives forever.
