    Summary

    For all of Bash’s teasing, he knows. He knows in the way she steals into his thoughts; in how she lingers in the notes of a song that bursts out of him with too much joy; in the way she frames the edges of home when Bash asks him about Avonlea; in the way her letter falls open from well-worn creases when it’s not tucked safely away in his pack.

    He knows.

    But it’s one thing to know it, even if only his most wistful thoughts. It’s another thing entirely to admit it to Bash, and to give him another reason to rush him home. Avonlea is already calling to him all the time, and it’s hard to know how much is heartache and how much is homesickness. He’s taken Marilla’s words to heart and wants Avonlea to be a choice if – when – he comes back.

    (Through it all his heart whispers come home someday and he gets no rest at all.)

    So slowly, his protests to Bash’s sharp eye weaken, and sometimes, when he’s not careful, he dreams about treasure hidden away in Avonlea.

    Summary

    Peter sighs heavily, forehead pressed against the top of the wheel, before he turns on the ignition. The car’s radio startles to life on the kind of station his mother loves to listen, those oldies she sings along to when she drives and that Peter pretends not to like. The last notes of a Madonna song die in the silence of his car, before guitar riffs fill the space.

    He turns his head at the familiar tune, frowning a little as the voice starts crooning lyrics he doesn’t know. But his mind works for him, filling in the blanks and drawing connections. Lara Jean had been offended at his lack of knowledge when it comes to classic romcom movies, and had made it her mission to catch him up. John Hughes’ filmography had been followed by Heath Ledger singing on the bleachers, Julia Roberts’ red dress, frosting diamonds. And a boombox.

    Summary

    "He wants to talk to her. He just really, really needs to talk to her."

    I absolutely love the kitchen scene in the movie. It's incredibly intimate and builds on the contract and second cafe scenes - that these two were good at talking to each other and really trusted one another from the start. The irony of how honest they were privately while sharing a lie together was a really well crafted part of the script. I wanted to capture a little bit of that connection and trust they were building. Also, Peter is so very deeply GONE in that scene, my lord! That's this kind of Peter.

    Peter and Lara Jean don't put in the No Kissing rule, and, well, things get messy.

    Summary

    “So we are talking one collab every month and a half on Lara Jean’s channel, and two appearance every fortnight on Peter’s,” Trina outlines after half an hour of discussion of agreed terms. “As well as five pictures each per month on Instagram.”
    “Sounds perfect to me,” Peter’s manager agrees.
    Because that is Lara Jean’s life now. Drafting a contract not just for a collaboration with Peter, but for a fake dating arrangement between the two of them. And, look, Lara Jean is not stupid; she gets it. Lots of celebrities date for PR, and she even knows a Youtuber or two who had sketchy relationships for views. She just never really thought she would be one of those people, though.

    (The one where Peter is a vlogger, Lara Jean has a baking channel, and everything is clickbait.)
