You will probably hate me for starting another story but I felt like my last one wasn't really getting the reception I had hoped for which demotived me a bit! But I got this idea and I was hoping it might get a better reception. :) I hope you all like it!
So basically it's another twin story but with a twist. Lorelai had twin girls but I promise it will be completely different to my previous twin story. Lorelai has twin girls, Rory and Olivia, but in this they have known Luke and Jess most of their time in Stars Hollow. Jess went to live with Luke when he was a lot younger so Rory, Olivia and Jess basically grew up together and are very close. This will start at the beginning of season 1 and will follow them through the series. It will probably be a literati (to be honest, I might see how it goes in that respect but that's my intial idea) and definitely a javajunkie.
I hope you enjoy! :)
Lorelai was smiling to herself sipping her coffee, sat at Luke's, watching a guy who had just hit on her go up to the counter. She looked up as the diner door opened and her face lit up. "Hi!" She smiled.
"Hey!" Rory smiled sitting down with her.
"It's freezing out there!" Olivia said, sitting down. "Hey Jess, get us some doughnuts?" She grinned at their best friend as he headed for the counter.
"Your wish is my command." Jess said dryly, giving her a mock salute.
"Thanks!" Olivia grinned.
"So what do you need?" Lorelai asked them. "Hot tea, coffee?"
"Lip gloss." Rory said.
"Aha!" Lorelai said pulling out her makeup bag. "Vanilla, chocolate, strawberry or toasted marshmallow?" She said.
"Anything in there not resembling a breakfast cereal?" Olivia smirked.
"Yes!" She said pulling out another bag. "It has no smell but it changes colours with your mood." She grinned.
"God, RuPaul doesn't have this much makeup." Rory said.
"Wow, someone's crabby." Lorelai said.
"I'm sorry. I lost my Macy Gray cd and I need caffeine." Rory said.
"I might have your cd." Olivia admitted sheepishly.
"Thief!" Rory exclaimed.
"Sorry." She smirked. "Oooh look doughnuts!" She said as Jess put a plate infront of them and joined them at the table.
"It's a good thing I like you." Rory joked.
"I'll get you girls some coffee." Lorelai grinned, heading up to the counter. "Hey Luke!" She grinned.
"You're shameless." Luke said.
"What? It's for Rory and Olivia! I swear!" Lorelai said.
"Uh huh.." Luke said.
"Look, Officer Krupke, they're at that table right over there!" Lorelai said turning round and seeing the same guy who had hit on her at the table again. "Huh. He's got quite a pair, this guy." Lorelai said. "Thanks." She said taking the coffee and heading back to the table.
"Yeah, I've never been through here before." The guy was saying.
"Really?" Olivia said.
"Never." He said glancing at Jess. "Boyfriend?" He asked.
"That would be wrong." Olivia smirked.
"Thanks." Jess said dryly.
"So how about you girls show me around? I don't know the area very well." He said.
"Oh, you do too." Lorelai smiled sweetly.
"Oh, hi." The guy said surprised.
"Hi. You really like my table, don't you?" She said.
"I was just..uh.."
"Getting to know my daughters?" She said.
"Your...?" He said shocked.
"Are you our new daddy?" Olivia grinned.
"Wow. You do not look old enough to have daughters. No, I mean it. And you do not look like daughters." The guy rambled.
"That's possibly very sweet of you. Thanks." Lorelai said.
"So...daughters...You know, I am travelling with some friends." He said.
"They're fifteen." Lorelai said.
"Bye." He said quickly.
"Drive safe." Lorelai smirked. "Hey, you're meant to protect my daughters from guys like him!" She told Jess.
"We all know you three can handle yourself." Jess said.
"He's right, mom. We had it." Rory laughed.
Rory, Olivia and Lane were walking to school when Lane puts a Woodstock '99 shirt on over the shirt she left home in.
"When are you going to let your parents know that you listen to the evil rock music? You're an American teenager, for god's sake." Olivia said.
"Liv, if my parents still get upset over the obscene portion size of American food, I seriously doubt I'm going to make any inroads with Eminem." Lane said.
"Fair point." Olivia smirked slightly as they passed a sign for a 'Teen Hayride'.
"I have to go to that." Lane told them.
"Seriously?" Rory said.
"My parents set me up with the son of a business associate. He's going to be a doctor." Lane said.
"How old is he?" Rory asked.
"So he's going to be a doctor in a hundred years?" Olivia joked.
"Well, my parents like to plan ahead." She said.
"God, you have to go to the hayride with him?" Rory asked.
"And his older brother."
"You've got to be kidding!" Olivia said.
"Koreans never joke about future doctors. So, I guess you two aren't going, huh?"
"No, I'm still fuzzy on what's fun about sitting in the cold for two hours with a bundle of sticks up your butt." Rory said.
"Don't expect me to clear it up for you." Lane sighed as they walked into the school, Olivia noticing a boy watching them as they did.
"Well, was it a good colour at least?" Lane asked as they headed home after their day at school.
"It had sparkles in it." Rory said.
"Wow." Lane said.
"And it smelled like bubble gum when it dried." Olivia smirked.
"Oh, well, there's no way Mark Twain can compete with that." Lane joked. "See you!" She said waving at them as she headed inside her house.
"Bye!" Rory smiled.
"Bye!" Olivia said and then the two sisters headed to the inn to meet up with their mom.
They went into the kitchen where they found their mom and Sookie giggling.
"Hi mom!" Rory said.
"Oh!" Lorelai said hiding a bag behind her back.
"You look happy." Olivia said glancing between them.
"Yeah." Lorelai nodded, beaming.
"Did you do something slutty?" Olivia joked.
"I'm not that happy." Lorelai giggled. She saw her daughters giving her a confused look so she handed the bag over to them. "Here." She said.
"What is it?" Rory asked picking out a plaid skirt from inside the bag. "I'm going to be in a Britney Spears video?" She joked.
Olivia glanced at the skirt and then it dawned on her. "Mom?" She said surprised.
"It's true." Lorelai nodded. "You got in. You both got in."
"Got in where?" Rory said confused.
"We got into Chilton?" Olivia exclaimed. "Seriously?"
"Seriously." Lorelai nodding, smiling. "You're starting on Monday."
"Oh my god! We got in?" Rory exclaimed excitedly. "Liv, we got in!"
"I heard!" Olivia grinned.
"I don't believe this! We're going to Chilton!" Rory grinned.
"I know!" Olivia grinned. "We've got to go tell Jess, come on!"
"Right behind you!" Rory grinned following her sister out.
They suddenly ran back in and launched themselves at their mom. "We love you, mom." Olivia said.
"I love you too. And I'm so proud of you both." Lorelai smiled softly. She watched them grin at her and then rush out to spread the good news. She glanced at her best friend. "They're going to Chilton, Sook." She said.
"They're going to do great." Sookie smiled.
Meanwhile, Rory and Olivia rushed into the diner. "Jess, we did it! We got in!" Olivia exclaimed.
"Did what?" Jess said looking up from behind the counter.
"Chilton! We got in! We're starting on Monday!" Rory grinned.
"Oh." Jess said.
"Wow, that's great news! Congratulations!" Luke smiled having overheard them.
"Thanks Luke!" Olivia grinned.
"Isn't that great news?" He said to Jess.
"Sure." He nodded. "I..uh..I've got some homework to do." He said before disappearing upstairs.
"Ok, what's up with him?" Rory said confused.
"No idea." Olivia frowned, glancing at Luke.
"Don't ask me." Luke said. "You girls want some burgers to celebrate?" He asked.
"Yes please!" Rory smiled.
"Sounds good." Olivia smiled, glancing towards the stairs as Luke headed to the kitchen.
Olivia glanced up to see Jess leaving the classroom quickly the following day. She frowned. He normally waited for her so they could walk home together. She packed up her stuff quickly and ran after him. "Jess, wait!" She said. "Jess!"
"What?" Jess said finally stopping.
"What is your problem?" Olivia demanded. "You've been avoiding us since we told you about Chilton! What's wrong?"
"Nothing." He grumbled.
"It's obviously not nothing!" Olivia said.
"Just leave it." He said, starting to walk again.
"Jess!" Olivia exclaimed following after him but nearly bumped into him when he stopped suddenly. "What the..Jess!"
"Look." Jess said nodding ahead.
Olivia followed his gaze to see Rory standing and chatting with the guy she had noticed watching them the other day. "Huh..." She said as she watched her sister stumble over her words. "Looks like someone has a crush." She joked.
"You think she likes him?" Jess said.
"Oh it's obvious!" Olivia laughed.
"He doesn't seem like her type." He said.
Olivia glanced at him. "What?" She laughed.
"Never mind. I need to get back for my shift." Jess mumbled.
"Jess, wait!" Olivia said. "What's going on?"
"Nothing!" He exclaimed. He saw the hurt in Olivia's face and sighed. "Look, I'll see you later ok?"
"Ok." She said quietly. She watched him walked off, totally confused with how he was acting.
"What's his problem?" Lane asked walking up to her.
"I have no idea." She sighed.
"Wanna walk home together?" Lane smiled.
Olivia saw Rory start to walk off with the guy she had been talking to so nodded. "Sure." She smiled.
Olivia walked into the diner later that day to grab some takeout for their dinner. She saw Jess behind the counter and slowly walked up to him. "Hey..." She said hesitantly.
He looked up at her. "Hey." He said.
"Uh..can I get three burgers and three portions of fries to take out?" She said.
"Coming up." Jess nodded, putting the order through to Luke who was in the kitchen.
Olivia glanced at him. "Are we ok?" She asked.
Jess sighed. "I'm sorry I snapped. I didn't mean to." He said.
"It's ok." She said. "So are you going to tell me what's wrong?"
"I'm fine." Jess said.
"Right..." Olivia sighed.
"Seriously, she's still hanging out with him?" Jess said.
"Who?" Olivia frowned following his gaze. She saw Rory outside with Dean. "Oh..yeah. She's been giving him a tour. He's new apparently."
"Sure, and that's all he wants from her." Jess grumbled.
"Ok, what is your problem?" Olivia demanded.
"I don't believe you!"
"Well fine, don't believe me then!" He snapped.
"So much for being sorry." Olivia frowned.
"Will you two take this upstairs please?" Luke told them. "You're causing a scene." He said gesturing to the customers who were watching them.
"Forget it! There's nothing to discuss." Jess grumbled before storming upstairs.
"Oh no, you're not getting away that easily!" Olivia snapped following him upstairs. "Why are you being such a jerk?" She demanded.
"I said it's nothing! Why won't you leave me alone?" He exclaimed.
"Because I know you, Jess! I know when something's bothering you!" Olivia exclaimed.
"Well you won't have to bother with me for much longer! You'll be at that posh school, won't you?" He snapped.
"This is what this is all about?" Olivia said shocked. "Us going to Chilton?"
"No..." Jess mumbled.
"Jess, you knew we were applying there. We told you that you should as well..."
"I'm not as smart as you two. I'd never get in." Jess said.
"You're just as smart as us." Olivia told him.
"Yeah well, it's too late now! I don't want to go to that stupid school anyway." He said. "You go and make friends with rich guys and Rory can go out with that jerk from our school. Go, live your lives. See if I care."
"What is your problem with Rory and Dean?" She exclaimed.
"Yeah, that's his name." She said.
"Why are you being so weird? We'll always be friends, you know that! You think I'd just dump you if I make other friends? Because if you think that, you really don't know me at all." She said hurt.
Jess glanced at her. "Sorry." He mumbled.
"Jess, you're so important to me and Rory. You know that right?" Olivia said.
Jess glanced at her again and sighed. "Yeah. Sorry."
"Good. Because we're going to be friends forever. Unless you don't want to be." She said.
"No. I want to." He said.
"Good. So...this is resolved then? You'll stop being a jerk?" Olivia said, smiling slightly.
Jess smirked slightly. "Yeah...sorry." He said sheepishly. "Although Rory will probably be too into this new guy to bother with me anymore."
Olivia frowned. "She's not like that."
"He won't want her hanging out with another guy when they start dating." Jess said.
"When they start dating? What?" Olivia said confused.
"Well you said it was obvious she liked him. And he probably wants that too. Who could blame him?" He shrugged.
"Why does it matter who she decides to date?"
"I just don't think he's good enough for her." He said.
"You don't even know him!" She laughed.
"Neither do you." He pointed out.
"Ok, you're being weird again." She said. "What, are you jealous or something?" She joked. She saw him avoid her gaze for a moment. "Oh my god..." She said.
"What?" He mumbled.
"You are! You're jealous!" She exclaimed.
"No I'm not." Jess denied.
"I can't believe I'm hearing this..." Olivia said shocked. "You...and Rory? Seriously?"
"What's so weird about it?" He demanded.
"So it's true." She snapped.
"I don't know, ok? I just know that guy isn't good enough for her. She deserves the best!" He exclaimed.
"Sounds like you do know." She frowned. "I...I have to go."
"Liv wait!" He said.
"Why? We promised each other! We had a pact! We agreed...no dating each other. It would ruin our friendship!" Olivia exclaimed.
"That was years ago when we all thought that even the thought of kissing someone was gross!" Jess said.
"So you've thought about kissing Rory?" Olivia demanded.
"I don't believe you." She shook her head. "I don't believe this! We all agreed! Why her, Jess?"
"I can't help how I feel alright? It's not my fault!" He exclaimed. "Why are you getting so freaked out about it?"
"Ok what if you two do end up dating huh? And what if something goes wrong? We'd never get to hang out again! Is that what you want?" She said.
"We'd still hang out." He frowned.
"Really? Even though you and Rory would be fighting all the time? I'd have to take Rory's side, you know that right? She's my sister, Jess! Urghh...why does this have to be happening?!" She exclaimed. "I can't believe you would sacrifice our friendship for this!"
"What is your real problem here?" Jess frowned. "Are you really concerned about something going wrong between me and Rory or do you just not want me to like Rory that like?" He demanded.
"What do you mean?" She frowned.
"Are you jealous that I like Rory like that and not you? So you want to sabotage my chance at happiness because of that? You just don't want me to be with anyone so that I can be at your beck and call every minute of the day. Because that's just selfish!" He said spitefully.
Olivia stared at him, hurt. "I can't believe you would even think that..." She said quietly.
"No, don't you dare 'Liv' me! I...I should go." She said.
"Liv wait!" Jess sighed.
"Screw you, Jess! You know what, do what you want! I don't care anymore! If our friendship really means that little to you, then fine." She snapped, blinking back tears, as she headed towards the door.
"Liv..." He tried again.
"Go to hell!" She snapped before rushing out.
"Hey..." A voice said.
Olivia looked up from the porch swing that was on the patio at the front of their house and smiled softly. "Hey..."
"Are you ok?" Rory asked softly.
"I'm fine." She sighed.
"Eventful night, huh?" She said.
"You could say that again." Olivia sighed.
"I still can't believe mom went to them for money..." Rory said quietly.
Olivia glanced at her. "I guess she just really wanted us to get to go to Chilton. She knew how much it meant to us." She said.
"Yeah.." Rory said quietly. "I...I can't believe I nearly threw that away for some guy..."
"We all do stupid things. Don't worry about it. You've seen sense now." She said, smirking slightly.
Rory smiled slightly. She glanced at her sister who still looked down. She had noticed it over the past few days. "Are you going to tell me what happened between you and Jess?" She said hesitantly.
"What?" She said surprised.
"Oh come on, you've been avoiding each other for days now. He won't even speak to me that much. It's like he's avoiding me. What's going on?" Rory said.
Olivia sighed. "It's nothing."
"It doesn't seem like nothing." Rory said cautiously. "I've never seen you this upset over a fight."
"You...don't want to know, trust me." She said.
Rory glanced at her. "You guys will make up though right? I miss our daily catch up. You know, discussing all the gossip around school, teasing Jess over Luke, chatting about books..."
Olivia smiled slightly. "Yeah...I miss that too." She admitted.
"Well then...surely it's not so bad you can't make up? Is it about us going to Chilton? Is he mad we're not going to go to the same school as him? Because nothing will change between us. He knows that right? We love him." Rory said softly.
"You love him?" Olivia said her head whipped up.
"Well...don't we both?" Rory said confused. "He's our friend. Our best friend."
"Oh..yeah." Olivia said.
"Then make up. I know how much he means to you. I hate seeing you so upset about this." She said. "And...it looks like he feels the same." She said.
"What?" She said confused.
"Look..." Rory said gesturing to where Jess was hovering on the driveway. "Looks like someone wants to make things right. Just...at least hear him out." She said softly. "I know Jess can be infuriating but he's a good friend. And good friends are hard to come by."
Olivia just nodded and watched as Jess slowly walked towards her.
"Hey..." He said hesitantly.
"Hi." She said.
"Mind if I sit?" He asked.
"It's a free country." She commented.
Jess sighed and sat down next to her. "I'm sorry." He said.
"About what? There's so much to choose from." She retorted.
"Ok, I deserved that." He said.
Olivia glared at him. "So?"
"I'm sorry. For everything." Jess said. "I didn't mean it. I was angry and I...took it out on you."
"I didn't deserve it." She said quietly.
"No. You didn't." He said. He sighed. "You were right. Our friendship means too much for me to jeopardise it." He said.
Olivia glanced at him. "You mean that?" She said quietly. "But I thought you said..."
"I can put any feelings I may or may not have aside. I don't want to lose you. You and Rory have kept me sane since I moved here. I don't want to ruin what we have." He said sincerely.
"You'd really do that?"
"Put your feelings aside? Just like that?" Olivia said.
"For you? Yeah." He nodded.
"So...you'd be ok watching Rory date other people then? You'd be able to deal with it?" She said hesitantly.
"I don't know. But I guess we'll find out." Jess said. He sighed. "Look, since hearing you got into Chilton, I guess...well I guess I felt like I was going to lose my friends. We won't get to see each other everyday at school. We won't get to see each other as much as we did. And I guess...well I guess I freaked out about that and that..well, it made me act like a jerk. So I'm sorry." He said.
Olivia sighed. "You know, I'm going to miss having my partner in crime as well. Chilton is an amazing school but I am worried I won't fit in. That I won't make any friends." She admitted.
"You'll be fine." Jess assured her.
"How do you know?"
"Because I know you. And people would be a fool not to want to be your friend." He said softly.
Olivia glanced at him and smiled slightly. "I've missed you." She admitted.
"I've missed you too." He said. "You're going to take Chilton by storm. And if anyone gives you a hard time, send them to me." He said.
"Aw, you big softy." Olivia teased, leaning her head on his shoulder.
"Yeah and you tell anyone, our friendship really is over." He smirked.
"Duly noted." She grinned. She smiled at him. "Want to join us for our movie night?" She asked softly.
"If you're sure?" He said.
"Of course. I know Rory will be pleased to see we've made up. She's been bugging me about it." Olivia smiled slightly.
"You didn't say anything...?"
"No! No, I didn't say anything." She assured him. "She doesn't know anything."
"Ok." He said relieved.
Olivia glanced at him. "You don't have to join us if you don't want to...It's up to you."
Jess glanced at her and smirked. "You think I'd miss a Gilmore movie night? Think again, Gilmore." He said.
Olivia laughed. "Come on then."
"Lead the way." He said.
Olivia grinned and headed inside. Jess watched her for a moment, took a deep breath before slowly following her.
