Disclaimer: Amy Sherman-Palladino owns it all.

As some of you might already know, I only write speculative fics based on spoilers (think of it as a pre-episodic fic). Inner thoughts will not be mentioned. Writing's not my thing! But I really do try.

Shout-Outs: Luvz… once again – thank you! Thank you for all the great discussions! I can't imagine my GG-obsessed life without you!

And Jet, "thank you" for everything – especially for reviewing this fic and your encouraging e-mails.

gilmoregirl1979, I know I only know you through G – but seriously, I admire your love for writing. Keep it up!

Introduction: SPOILER ALERT! This is a speculative fic based on spoilers for the 100th episode of Gilmore Girls (Titled: "Wedding Bell Blues"). Mainly about Luke and Lorelai – also a bit of everyone else. Reviews are appreciated.




The scenes INTERCUT between the apartment and Yale as Lorelai and Rory continue to talk on the phone.

RORY: …so you talked to grandma?

LORELAI: (Places kettle on the stove) Yeah, we talked. They are definitely going through with it.

RORY: (Smiles) Good. I am glad.

LORELAI: Oh hey! I even talked her into going with the light blue dresses, and it didn't even cost me a migraine or anything.

RORY: (Surprised) Wow, that's amazing. She must really be happy.

LORELAI: Thirty-eight plus years of marriage, and who thought they'd fall in love with each other all over again?

RORY: (Sighs) It's nice. I am happy for them. (Hears a clunking sound over the phone) What are you doing?

LORELAI: (Nonchalantly) Making tea.

RORY: Why?

LORELAI: Be-cause… Luke likes tea? And I like Luke?

RORY: You've never made me tea.

LORELAI: You don't drink tea.

RORY: Well… if you had made me tea in the 19 plus years of my existence, I would have actually liked it.

LORELAI: Don't blame mommy because you've never enjoyed the beverage… blame Luke.

RORY: You know, that's nice mom.

LORELAI: (As she pours herself some coffee) What?

RORY: You making tea for Luke. That's nice.

LORELAI: I've made him tea before.

RORY: I know, but you know what I mean.

LORELAI: (Smiles) I know. (Remembers) Oh – mom didn't send him an invitation…

RORY: (Look of annoyance) What? Are you serious?

LORELAI: Yes, I am. Sookie and Jackson got theirs a week ago. So when I talked to her about it, she said she was hand delivering it.

RORY: Umm, why?

LORELAI: Exactly what I asked!

RORY: Great minds. Carry on…

LORELAI: She said that she felt awful about how she acted around Luke last time. So she wanted to see him in person with the invitation. She wouldn't even tell me when she's making her surprise visit.

RORY: Well, that would kind of defeat the purpose.


RORY: (Explains) "Surprise visit" … it won't be a surprise if she…

LORELAI: (Cuts her off) Enough with the specifics already!

RORY: (Rolls her eyes) So when do you think she will show up?

LORELAI: I don't know but I am planning on spending every chance I get with Luke – from now till this Saturday, so I can be there when she does her Alexis Carrington impression. (Smiles) I don't want her messing with my guy.

RORY: Where is he by the way?

LORELAI: In the shower, making himself look pretty for me.

RORY: I had to ask.

LORELAI: (Giggles).




So, that was the teaser. I know it was short, but teasers are usually short- maybe not this short – but shorter than the other segments. (Sigh) I think that's the most times anyone has used the word 'short' in a sentence.

Please review?
