    Summary

    The Avonlea Storybook Club is a valued part of Anne Shirley-Cuthbert's day. She longs to share her tales of adventure with Diana and Ruby, and she always does share her stories. Well, most of the time. But, what happens when Diana finds the one she's been keeping to herself? It's clearly Gilbert Blythe fanfiction, and there's only so long that Anne can pretend Ruby wrote it. Anne is going to have to learn to be truer to her feelings than ever before. On top of that, Anne is preparing for college. Whether she likes it or not, her life in Avonlea is going to change.

    A walk through of teenage Anne’s life set around the timeline of Season Three with some elements of Season Two.

    Summary

    Uptight Gilbert Blythe needs a break - from his medical practice, from his island life where he's spent years doing what's responsible and expected but not really what he wants - so he leaves. A year abroad adventuring from place to place is just what the doctor has ordered. But when he gets to his first post and meets a woman who has spent her whole life on the move, he quickly learns that the other side of life can be a whirlwind of highs and lows and there's something appealing about the small town life he's built back home. The only thing is, how does he go back when he's found the one thing he realises he can't live without?

    Summary

    March 2020. The Atlantic Provinces are creating a bubble to avoid a surge in Covid cases, and Anne is left outside as they close borders. Stranded in Toronto, she knows no one at all. Or does she?

    “You are kidding me, Diana Barry! Baynard! Are you even hearing what you’re saying? I’m not calling Gilbert Blythe. I prefer to sleep in my dingy place and then befriend all the homeless people in Toronto and then walk to PEI and stand there until they open the damn border before calling him! It is just not going to happen! Today, tomorrow or ever, it is out of the question! I’m done with him and I will never ask him for any favours!” She had been glad not to see him in the past ten years. Well, not glad. But relieved. Because it was just too hard.
     

    “I actually called to ask you a favour. Huge one,” Diana answered. He could tell she was nervous.
    “I need you to call Anne and let her stay at your place until PEI opens the borders,” Diana said quickly, as if to take the effect off the words. There was a short silence. Then he laughed. Because the notion was so absurd, he could not think of any other reaction. If she had asked him to get a cow that gave chocolate milk, it would have seemed more serious.

    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

    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

    Anne was friendless before she came to the university of Toronto and wants to forget the past. When Anne finds new friends she can't bring herself to tell them of her life before Toronto.

    Gilbert is tired of being the perfect guy in everybody's eyes. Always turning on the charm and never feeling like he can unload what's eating at him inside.

    They find the other suddenly walking into their lives and changing everything but the path to each other is more complicated than that.

    Here's a little excerpt:

    'Anne didn’t know she was crossing into shadow until she was there. Looking at a world that was covered in shadowed places. Everywhere she looked seemed to be reminders of Gil. It was over the next few weeks, Anne started to realise just how much she loved Gilbert and lost each new part of him, she realised she loved. Anne went to the waterfront and sat where they’d sat. She remembered but she remembered knowing what she’d wished she’d known then. That she was stupidly in love with that boy'

    Summary

    Since Netflix is utterly reprehensible and decided not to renew our beloved Anne with an E, I did it myself. This is a post season three fic that follows them through university.

    Anne and Gilbert have just now worked out their feelings for each other with a romantic farewell, leaving each other hundreds of miles apart for a hefty portion of the year, but together in soul. Through love letters, visitations, and a healthy dose of misunderstandings and make ups, follow our favorite couple as they make their way through life.

    "You, Anne, drove me to the point of insanity with your angelic hands that trailed down my undeserving face and doll like body in that dress that made you look like an angel come down to bless my unworthy lips with your sweet kiss. I know you've longed to be Princess Cordelia all your life, but I prefer you as Anne, my beautiful woodland fairy, queen of the moors and my heart, with the sunset red waves and shining ice blue eyes."
