    Summary

    This was catharsis, or what's left of it, these days. Letting go and releasing it all. Letting the wind blow it off your back for the time being.

    Catharsis, in some sick, twisted way, was hard knocks to a prison door, loud voices overlapping one another, shitty beer, bitter breath, tense silences, deep sighs and the pungent, cacophony of smells that couldn’t even try to keep him sober. Catharsis was accepting that life was how it was now, and they would just have to wait until it changes again.

    The acceptance had happened long ago. Changes had long been done. The world keeps spinning and the moon keeps rising and Jess is sure as hell not stopping to get dizzy.

    It’s life, in some undesirable way. So, closure, in a sort of psychotic undertone. Nothing had ever been normal in his deranged, convoluted life, anyway. He could live with it. He has been for sixteen years.

    This is how it starts, this is how it ends. On the floor of a shitty bathroom in New York, crying for his mother.

    (catharsis, or what's left of it.)

    Summary

    The drink tastes revolutionary on her tongue. It's not her first time having a drink, but it is her first time having a drink as a college drop out and that's practically the equivalent of being an entirely different person when you're Rory Gilmore and the school bell resembles the beat of your heart.

    *or Rory's thought process during the Yale drop out arc

    Summary

    “You brought a book?”

    “Like you didn’t.”

    She concedes the point and digs a paperback out of her clutch—Austen’s Persuasion, a good choice. Jess displays his own masticated copy of Tobias Wolff’s Old School, which feels like a consistently fitting read when encased within the two-hundred year old hallowed halls of Chilton Preparatory. The book’s cover is hanging on by Scotch tape and a prayer, and half the pages are creased with undone dog ears.

    “Man, we’re a couple of anti-social freaks,” Rory declares.

    Jess grins. “Just call me Thomas Pynchon.”

    or: the one where jess goes to chilton.

    Summary

    When Rory went over to Logan's dorm to hang out, she didn't expect a poker game with half the Life and Death Brigade. She also didn't expect to meet a stranger with his nose in a book, a guy who might be even more interesting and attractive than the one she originally came over to see. (AU, mid-Season 5, with a twist...)

    Summary

    Jess Mariano is keeping things simple. Sure, he's single at 38, has a stable career and is the poster boy for a suitable groom, even though his most permanent relationship walked out with his heart and expresso machine. He's great. He's living life vicariously. But is he? What happens when he's forced to take charge of his sister Danielle Doula Jenkins?

    Danielle 'Dani' Jenkins is the resident bad girl of Stars Hollow. Known for wearing clothes to die for, an attitude considered disturbing by Stars Hollow standards, but having a dark secret below her tough demeanour. All she wants is freedom and a fresh start from the ghastly snow-globe town of Stars Hollow- a real Wonderland instigated by psychedelics... or something. What happens when she gets her wish where an act of rebellion sends her packing to The City of Brotherly Love to her big brother Jess Mariano, the "oh-so wonderful" Boromir to her Faramir?

    Will these two be the person they unknowingly needed in their mediocre lives, whether they like the circumstances or not?

    Summary

    “Are you afraid?” Jess could feel her presence behind him, her cold aura sneaking up on his own back. “Depends,” he responded as calmly as he could. The air changed and Rory stomped around Jess until she faced him, her eyebrows pushing down on pitch-black eyes. “Depends on what?” she asked in an agitated tone. Jess gave a small shrug and looked around him: “Are we talking Max Schreck, Bela Lugosi or Count von Count?”

    Summary

    They both throw themselves out of the bed at the same time, then hunch over it on a side each staring at the other.
    “Rory?” Her own voice says but she’s not the one speaking, he is.
    “Jess.” She growls in his voice, insanely angry instinctively, suddenly.

    Summary

    Rory Gilmore is a painting yet to be painted, everyone she knows a paintbrush, a person - a color. A portrait of a hundred bleeding hearts.

    She stands here, with Jess, and she's a painting waiting to be hanged, brought home, a museum's stolen child craving to be touched.

    *Or Rory and Jess hanging out in the diner. This is obviously stuff made out of quality canon magic. We just never got to see it. Didn't really edit this but who cares, it's here now.

    Summary

    The story begins in season 1 of Gilmore Girls and jumps to through season 3. The BTVS is in season 5-7 only. The title of this story was taken from an episode of Gilmore Girls in season 1. In this story, Lorelai Gilmore, Richard’s mother, is on the Watcher’s Council. If you’ve seen Marion Ross play her on Gilmore Girls, then you could so picture her as this. Her son Richard is Council-trained, and his daughter Lorelai had been a potential. Grams breaks the news to Lorelai that her daughter Rory is a potential and insists she must prepare for the possibility that one day she could be called as a slayer.
