    Summary

    She calls him later. Jess is half asleep, legs hanging off the couch, watching a rerun of the Anaheim Angels demolish the San Francisco Giants—well, maybe not demolish, but they win the World Series 4-3. Luke is conked out in the chair to Jess’s left and doesn’t even wake when the phone rings.

    He does twitch and snore a bit, however, so Jess still slips out into the hall. “Hello?”

    “So I looked it up,” Rory says, no greeting or anything, “and I think you might be right. I mean, it’d definitely be a valid Scrabble word, but I can’t find that exact variation of flaunt in the OED—that’s linguistical slang for Oxford-English Dictionary, by the way—that being said, however, I did find it in the Collins dictionary, so I think to be safe I owe you two-fifty.”

    Jess grins. He’s in love with this girl, plain and simple. “Hey Rory?”

    “Yeah?”

    “‘Linguistical’ isn’t a word.”

    or: the one where jess leaves, and leaves again, but eventually stays forever.

    Summary

    Jess needs a safety net--as much as he loathes to admit it. The publishing house folds and Jess has no desire to live in his car again, so he calls on the most reliable person he knows. Luke is there with a place to stay, unsolicited advice, and possibly WiFi. More than enough for him to get the chance to drum up some cash.

    The proximity of Luke's apartment to every other inch of Stars Hollow is a slight complicating factor.

    Summary

    It's Lorelai's wedding week, and Rory may have just lost her job, her boyfriend, and her apartment all in one day. Determined not to let her quarter-life crisis get in the way of Lorelai's excitement, Rory confides in an old flame--and realizes that her feelings may not entirely have gone away.

    AU, set 5 years after the season 7 finale. Everything in the show is canon, except that Lane never got pregnant and divorced Zach after about a year. A Year in the Life never happened, because it was bad. And even though it’s only 5 years after season 7 ended, it’s 2019, because it just is.

    Summary

    As water burst into the bus and the other passengers started screaming and banging on the windows, Rory sighed and leaned back into her seat. Only to realize that her sigh matched one across the isle from the Jim Stark-wannabe. He closed his book and sat up slightly to put it in his back pocket. She wasn’t one to throw stones but Rory couldn’t help but find his reaction weird. “Hey, didn’t you get the news?” she asked him, and the guy turned to face her with tired dark eyes. “We’re about to die,” she finished. “It doesn’t matter, I die all the time.” The guy spoke like it was just another Tuesday. Before she could take in his words, Rory found herself smirking: “Me too.”

    Summary

    They did get out, but even now he sat there in his apartment surrounded by boxes and trying to unpack all the damage he had left. It killed him to think that even if he called Rory, he ran out of things to say to her. Everything he wanted to say had been said, and everything he thought sat in transit. The truth though was, he just wanted her around. Just wanted her sweet voice to call out and let him know that things would be okay, that even if she wasn't here he would be fine. He was always okay with the risk of falling, he just expected her to be there if he fell too far. He was someone he didn't know if he wanted around anymore.

    What did she tell her friends about him? How did she describe him? He knew how he described her. She was the one that got away. Even in the blimps of passing through his head he knew what she was. Who she was. But what was he now? What if the truth was she didn't talk about him at all… that things were so good that he never would be brought up.
