Will she figure out who is leaving her these gifts, and why they would go to so much trouble?

    Summary

    When Diana wins four all-access passes to everyone's favourite local amusement park, the Boardwalk, Anne is thrilled - until she realises that means spending every Friday night for six weeks in the company of one Gilbert Blythe.
    Six weeks of fairground games, rides, and arguments over the best flavour of cotton candy. What could possibly happen?

    “Oh please, I know you like to pretend you can’t stand him, that he’s your ‘greatest enemy’ or whatever, but everyone knows you two like each other. He’s not your enemy, at worst you two are frenemies, but would it kill you to admit that he’s actually just your friend? Your super hot, super smart, super sweet friend who clearly has an enormous crush on you?"

    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.
