    Summary

    'When she finally was ready to let him go, finally confident that when she opened her eyes he would still be there, he gazed up at her so reverently as if she was the sun, the moon, and the stars all at once. The look was so full of love yet she knew she had seen it so many times in his eyes before that she blurted out the first thought that came into her head. 

    “Have you really loved me for so long?”'

    In which Anne and Gilbert spend their first year together, and apart.

    Summary

    On day one of waiting to see Gilbert again, Anne wakes up to find her fountain pen clenched in her fist.

    She doesn't recall having fallen asleep with it, but she certainly remembers stumbling to bed with an exhaustion that could only come from a day of such wonderful things. Diana, though she had made a virtuous effort to be a devoted friend, had drifted off around one o'clock in the morning, exhausted from her long day of travel. Anne, however, had been unable to bear the idea of letting today go—Gilbert, his hand on her cheek, his lips pressed against hers, the look of hope on his face as he gazed down at her. And the sight of her mother, drawn by her father as though she was the most beautiful thing in the world.

    Anne knows now what it feels like to have someone looking at you like you are the most beautiful thing in the world.

    Summary

    Gilbert tells himself he left Avonlea to see the world; to discover who he is and who he wants to be.

    He was not running away from his father's ghost, or the bad memories of his father's illness, and certainly, he was not fleeing from his utterly consuming heartbreak at being left alone in the world.

    And when his path continues to cross with a cute girl with red braids, maybe he really isn't as alone as he thought.

    Summary

    Anne receives proposals of marriage from various and undesirable quarters. Gilbert Blythe naturally happens to stumble upon her immediately afterwards every time.

    Inspired by a tumblr post about how Gilbert only realises he needs to tell Anne about his feelings for her once she starts receiving proposals of marriage from basically every other man in Avonlea.

    Summary

    Anne asks Diana to swap places at school and let her sit by the window, claiming it's because her eyes have been overstrained with studying too much geometry.

    This, of course, is a lie, and Gilbert Blythe (as per usual) is at the bottom of it all.
