this story is great please continue it

We are certainly meeting a lot of characters in this short time. Anne only met Gil a chapter ago, and you've gone and had Roy introduce himself to Anne too already. Is it just me, or is Roy a lot shyer in this? I'm glad that Jo's also here, but I never would've thought of him as the bar tender since he's a minister and everything, but you make the bartender part of him totally believable too.
I have a bit of a feeling that this is going to be a fast-paced story...
I'm super excited for the next chapter!

I'm so glad you've kept on with this. There's an effervescence to it, and ebullience, that is a joy to read. I love Jo, and Phil, and that there is no time when Charlie Sloane is anything besides awful. I loved the description of Gil's singing -all the descriptions come to that. This is such a vibrant story that reading it I'm swept along, all too glad to be pulled where the narrative leads. Very much looking forward to more!

Nice, even Jo his here, being the bar tender !

I very much liked Anne and Gil's little conversation at the bar during the break from the show. "I don't like to be called Gilbert" I don't like to be called Carrots"

It is so like Gilbert, to convince Fred to be a part of the band, even though Fred his so, so shy, not being used to all the attention the girls give him. My guess is that he accepted Gil's proposal because it was a way for him to play his guitar and maybe one day, if he ever gets enough courage, to play a solo part just once...

I so do like and love the ambiance you have created in this fanfic, It rocks all the way !

As I read the opening para I was thinking of Michael Hutchence, is that wrong? Well whoever you have in mind that's who I'm thinking of all the way own to the sliver of damp chest revealed by his unbuttoned shirt.
I believe Anne is having what they call an 'awakening' -pity Gil's so full of himself. Or maybe that's the joy of it, being safe to admire something you know you'll never have (not that you'd want to Anne, amirite?)
You capture cocksure, popular Gilbert pre slate smash perfectly. And he is isn't all swag, I note the way he interacts with Phil and Ruby and I think there's potential there ;o) But right now if there's a choice then I'd be going for Roy, myself. This is a really interesting treatment of him, at first I thought he came off quite bland considering his rep, but I see now that's the point, there's nothing much to him. Though I imagine you'll surprise me there.
Anyway in the space of two brimming, fast pace chapters we have the scene set and rearing to go, I can't wait to see where you take us, J!

You're right, we're getting more fun by the minute! Ooooh, Gil's so flirting with Anne- I'm wondering if that's just him here, or if he's actually serious with Ruby. I just loved Anne's responses to him being so close, and lost it at the casual wondering if his shirt was still unbuttoned- and having to bring up the pants! Oh, Anne... I really loved Anne hearing Gilbert's admiration on her performance in the debate about her via Phil, showing a different side of him, and loved him telling Charlie she was out of his league! And Diana drooling over a shy (and apparently huge) Fred! It's all so fun, but we're still getting insights to character, and I love that. I can't wait to see where this goes!

I'm sooooooooooo glad that you're back with another story...
I found myself drawn into the story from the first sentence and I adore this idea! And do I need to mention the way you've portrayed all the characters so that they're unique in this story but similar to how Montgomery wrote them? You never cease to surprise me, FKAJ.
Excited for the next chapter and how you decide to play their story in this AU!
Kim Blythe chapter 1 . 7/28/2016
Awesome !

Right from the start, with Gil joking and making fun and playing tricks on Josie... Ruby completely and totally having control of Gilbert, with one small gentle order, she made him do what she wanted...

Learning that Christine was the one who broke Gilbert's heart by not returning to college and moving back to her home town !

Although I wonder why Anne and Gilbert does not know each other before coming to college ( I am sure you will have a good explanation or not ) I have to admit that this first encounter between the two of them was quiet an enjoyable one !

What does Diana study at Redmond in this story ? I have to ask, because you've made Fred be a guitar player in it and I don't know if you know the web series Green Gables Fables on youtube ? But in it, both Diana and Fred study music, well not at Redmond, but they study music, and I think that it would be cool and sweet that you make Diana study music as well in this story, or maybe even get a part in the band, that way she and Fred could become closer and closer...

I think this is way too cool to have all of them be in a music group ! Gilbert, Fred, Charlie, Priss, Stella, Phil...

Even Roy his here... But not in the band, simply being the richest most eligible bachelor on campus !

It is totally cool, awesome, too much for words of you to have made Gilbert be the lead singer of the AVIS band ! I absolutely love it that his hair is way to long but so curly with his open blouse and tight leather pants ... Does he play the guitar as well ? Because I completely see it, in future chapters, him and Anne, alone in his room, her room, on the empty stage of Patty's place, both practicing an instrument, or just her playing the guitar and him singing or whispering the words of some song she had just written...

What a treat! I've been reading and beaming and playing spot-the-allusion throughout. Just the right degree of levity and reverence to the original. Everyone's recognisable and so is the world but the modernity of it is a delight. Looking forward to see if you decide to do more with these delightful people.

Oh, this is SO left field, and I laughed myself silly! Please keep it up. I never pictured an arty geeky Anne, but it totally works. A cocky, modern, music playing college age Gil too- I nearly choked when I got to the leather pants and unbuttoned shirt bit. I imagine for you that this is a wonderful place to come after the heartbreaking loveliness of The Piper, and it is just so much fun! I knew as soon as I saw it was you that the writing would be awesome, and you delivered! Keep it up, I'm hooked...

You had me at Oh yessss!
Oh my, J, Di Barry is a goddamn gem! Though Anne's 'I suppose' and her
'then he ruined it' were utterly sublime as well. I was beating the sofa arm as I read each line, unable to believe how you could top what had already made me lol like a crazy person only seconds before.

Highlights include:

Anne's How dare he, she didn't even know him, oooh he was so rude, was there anything he wasn't good at? Or his ego
Diana's He's freaking huge! (Oh my god I was purple by then) He's amaaaaaaaazing! (Ahh!) and Oh. My. God.
The bar called Patty's Place
The goggly eyed bass player
Phil Gordon maths genius
and just to top it off...
Wait were they leather pants? she wondered irrelevantly.

Oh J, I am hoping this isn't a one off, this is the most bubbling, irreverent, fast paced, good humoured story I have read in a looooooooooong time (as Di might say)
