Disclaimer: I don't own Gilmore Girls, If I Did Lorelai and Luke would've gotten married on June third!!
What If Luke's parents never died. This is a Story about The Danes family and how the Gilmore girls fit into their lives. I promise there will be some Luke Lorelai action, and some Dean Rory action because admit he was a great first boyfriend.
William decided when Luke turned 25 he would give him the hardware store to do what he would like. So as he promised, he gave Luke to store, and Luke turned it into a Diner.
Amy, Luke's mother, was very close with Mia, so she made many trips to the Inn. She met Lorelai, and loved her the second she met her. She had a charm in her. She was witty, strong, independent, and beautiful. Amy and the Gilmore girls got quiet close. Amy asked Lorelai to join her at her son's grand opening of
his Diner. Of course, Lorelai and her 8-year-old Rory did.
Ever since then the Gilmore Girls had been really close with Amy and William. On holidays, Lorelai and Rory would attend the Danes household for Amy's great cooking. Once Lorelai and Rory got their house, they would alternate houses every holiday. On every first snow, Amy Lorelai and Rory would walk the town, and William would go out and join his fellow friends and stand out in the snow all night, while Luke...well Luke was Luke.
That was the way it had been. It was tradition. The Danes and the Gilmore Girls. Everybody hoped one day Lorelai and Luke would come to their senses and finally see what is right in front of them, but they were just too stubborn. Luke was like a Father to Rory. He took her out for ice cream when she was hurt, or just for the fun of it. Rory loved Luke, and she loved her Grandma and Grandpy. She had grown close to the Danes and started calling them her Grandparents.
Every morning, Lorelai and Rory met up with Amy and William for breakfast at Luke's.
Lorelai walked into the Diner with a mug. She walked over to the table where Amy and William were. She kissed them each on the cheek and then walked up to the Counter.
" Luke." She smiled.
" How many have you had today?" He asked annoyed
" None." She said innocently
" five, but please please please Luke, your's is so much better." She begged
" Jeez Lorelai that stuff will kill you." Luke said.
" He is right Lorelai." William piped in.
" Hush you." Amy said smacking her husband on the arm. " Luke honey, give Lorelai her coffee, because we all know that she will end up winning anyway."
Luke rolled his eyes, and poured coffee into her cup. "Junkie." he muttered.
" Angel" She whispered. " You've got wings Baby." She smiled and returned to the table.
Just then Rory walked in shivering. " Cold." She mutters as she sits down next to William.
" would you like me to get you some coffee?" Amy asked.
" That's okay grandma, right now I need lip gloss." Rory said.
" I can solve that." Lorelai said as she pulled out make-up bag filled with make-up.
" Lorelai what do you need all that junk for when you look beautiful for anyway?" William asked,
" aw...so sweet..You're a real charmer." Lorelai said as Luke approached the table. "Luke why aren't you a charmer like your father here?" She asked giggling.
Luke rolled his eyes " Coffee?" He asked Rory.
" Are you really asking me that question?" She asked.
" My mistake" He said sarcastically and poured her some coffee.
" Thanks Luke." She said. He nodded, and went back to the counter.
" Luke, Come on. We are hungry. Come sit down with us already." Lorelai said.
" Keep your pants on. I will be there in a second." Luke said annoyed as he flipped through some receipts.
" Are you sure you want me to?" Lorelai asked seductively. Rory started giggle as Luke turned red. Soon the whole table was laughing.
" Ah Jeez." Luke exclaimed
" That's what you get for being a big Meanie." Lorelai pouted. Luke rolled his eyes and sighed.
" Fine" he said putting his receipts down. " I'm coming." He joined them at the table and they sat their eating breakfast as they had for the past 7 years.
Later at the Inn, Lorelai was walking around working, when Rory comes in wearing a huge sweater.
Lorelai burst into giggles. " What's that?" She asked.
" What? This? Oh well..Grandpy took me shopping for school supplies and we landed in the clothes department, and he said that it looked nice. And I agree." Rory said
Lorelai started laughing hysterically. " You took fashion advise from your elder grandfather? " Lorelai asked trying to control herself.
" Yes." Rory said. Lorelai started laughing even more. " I'm leaving." Rory said.
" No, No stay. Maybe we could go shopping ...take Grandpy along." Lorelai said laughing. " I need a new dress for work, do you think he could help?" She was already crying from laughing so hard.
" Buh Bye." Rory said, but Lorelai grabbed her arm.
" I'm good now, but get Michelle to look over you French paper for you." Lorelai said.
" Fine. Thanks Michelle your great." Rory said handing him the paper before he could argue.
Rory left the Inn. Michelle turned to Lorelai. " I Despise you." Michelle said.
Lorelai just grinned as if she accomplished some big task, and let out a big squeal and patter Michelle on his bald head. Michelle just rolled his eyes.
Later that day, Lorelai ran into the kitchen yelling. " SHE DID IT."
" What? who did what?" Sookie asks.
" Rory. She did it!." Lorelai says.
" ...And your happy about this?" Sookie asked confused.
" Yes! She can finally can get into Harvard, and I can resent her for the rest of her life, and we will finally have a normal mother/daughter relationship." Lorelai says
" Wait...wait...What exactly did Rory do?" Sookie asks,
" She got into Chilton." Lorelai squealed.
" Oh thank god. I though she did something else." Sookie said putting her hand to her heart. " Oh My god! She got in!" She finally realized.
" Yes Sookie, She did. I have to go tell Will and Amy." Lorelai said.
" Okay Hun, Give Rory a hug for me." She yells as Lorelai runs out the kitchen.
Lorelai walks up to the Danes house, and walks right in.
" Hello? Anybody home?" She calls out.
" In the kitchen." She hears Amy say at the same time Will calls out. " In the Den."
" William get your lazy butt in here!" Lorelai screams once she got into the kitchen.
" What's up dear?" He asks when he reaches the kitchen.
She just handed William the acceptance letter. Amy peered at it over her husbands shoulder. They both looked up with smiling faces.
" She did it!" William exclaimed.
" This is just wonderful. She is such a great girl. You both are. I am so proud of you Lorelai. Not many sixteen year olds can raise such a great daughter on her own." Amy exclaims hugging Lorelai tight.
" She is right Lorelai. We are very proud of you." William said.
" I couldn't have done it without you." Lorelai said breaking the hug.
" What? We hardly did anything. It was all you. You are such a great mother." Amy smiled.
" Why can't my parents see that?" Lorelai stated with a pout.
" oh Hun, this is supposed to be a great day. Cheer up. Things are
good." William said.
Lorelai nodded. Just then the front door opened. Luke and Rory walked in. Luke had his arm around her, and Luke laughing hysterically.
" Let me guess. The Muumuu?" Lorelai asked Luke. He nodded and laughed. Amy just rolled her eyes and Looked at her husband.
" Are you responsible for this?" She questioned.
" She looks nice." William defended. Lorelai rolled her eyes
" Okay, okay. I have some good news." Lorelai said breaking it all up.
" You look happy." Rory stated.
" I am Sweets." Lorelai smiled.
" Do something slutty? " She asked.
" I'm not that happy, Okay focus..." Lorelai paused. " You did it Babe, you got in." Lorelai smiled, handing her a Chilton acceptance letter.
" Oh my God!! Grandma, Grandpy, Dad, Look." Rory said smiling, as she passed the letter around.
Everyone but Rory seemed to notice that she had just called Luke Dad, but they all put it to the back of their minds for now.
" I love you all." Rory said smiling to the family that her mom had made for her. They were her adopted family, since her mother and her grandparents didn't see eye to eye, plus her father hadn't bothered to call her in 9 years.
She hugged everyone, and once everyone calmed down, Luke and Amy made a delicious Lasangia. After that they all sat down and watched Charlie and the Chocolate factory.
Later that night Lorelai is looking at the tuition for Chilton with Sookie and Luke.
" That's a lot of Zero's" Lorelai said.
" You're telling me." Luke said. " Look Lorelai, I have the money. I could give it to you..." He starts but Lorelai cuts him off.
" No Luke, I will figure it out."
" You know, there is always my car. I could sell.." Sookie starts.
" No one wants you car Sook." Lorelai finishes.
" You're right, but there are your par.." She starts again
" That's OUT of the question." Lorelai said.
" But they could.." Luke says.
" No. I will figure it out." Lorelai cuts him off. She sighs. Rory comes running out of the door in her plaid skirt.
" Lookie at me!" She yells and twirls. Will and Amy followed after her.
" You look just darling." William says kissing her on her cheek.
" Thanks." She smiles. " Mom? Sookie? Grandma? Whatd'ya think?" She asks.
" You Look Smart!." Sookie exclaims.
" Well we hope so since she just got accepted to a hard school." Lorelai says.
" I think you look beautiful." Amy says.
" Mom, you still haven't said what you think." Rory said.
" Well..." Lorelai starts. " It Looks good, but it is Long." She says.
" Fine. You can Hem, but just a little" Rory says.
" Oh. Me and your grandma got you a little something that will be arriving tomorrow." William says.
" Oooh Presents." Rory claps. She runs inside the house, with everyone following after.
The Next morning Rory was awaken by voice and whispering, she stirred in her bed.
" MOM, go away." She yelled. " It is early."
" Well isn't that a cheerful greeting for someone you haven't seen since last Christmas." the voice said laughing.
Rory shot up in bed and opened her eyes. She didn't know if her ears hear right. When she saw the person standing there she jumped out of bed and Hugged him Tight.
" JESS!!" She yells " Ohmigod! what? How? When did you get here?" She asks.
" Last night. While Grandma and grandpa were here I was getting settled in my Room." He says.
" Last Night? Your room? " She asks.
" Long story short. Liz is being..well Liz, and so I am staying with the grandparents until graduation. Plus, I am also a present from our grandparents as they explained to me." He smirks
" That's great. I missed you." She hugged him.
" I missed you too." He says. He breaks the hug. " Oh yeah. " He reaches in his butt pocket and pulls out a book. " Congratulations." He says.
" What's this?" She asks. " Moby Dick" She read the cover.
" Yeah. I knew you probably haven't read so, there." He grinned.
" Thanks Jess. So..how about we go catch up." Rory said. " Go wake up Lorelai." Rory said.
" Are you kidding she has been up since 6 this morning, when Luke brought me here this morning she jumped on me. She hugged me until I was blue in the face" Jess smirked.
" What can I say us Gilmore Girls love our Danes men. I missed having my favorite cousin around." Rory said.
" Yea I missed you too." he said. " Okay enough of this mushy gushy stuff before I puke. How about you get up and get ready, and we can go clean out your locker and just chill around." he says.
" Sounds great. Give me 10 minuets." She said getting out of bed and pushing him out the door.
Later on Jess and Rory are walking around town talking about books movies and music.
"...So that's how it ended." Rory said.
" That sounds like a horrible book." Jess says.
" it was. I mean the plot and everything was good, but then in the end it totally sucked." Rory exclaims.
" Sounds like it." he chuckles.
" So how's Lane?" Jess asks.
" Good." Rory replies.
" How's her mom?" Jess asks.,
" Crazy as ever."Rory said.
" I remember the first time I met her i was 8 and she wouldn't let me play with you both because she thought I was going to hit on lane or something." Jess laughs.
" Yeah. I remember that, and you cried." Rory said laughing.
" I did not cry. I was upset. I was only home for a couple of days, and she wasn't letting me hang out with my best friends." Jess argued
" Uh-huh sure." Rory said " At least she finally liked you because you sucked up and complimented all her food. Your like the only boy she likes that isn't Korean" Rory says. They walked up the steps to the school and to her locker.
Lane was walking through the halls and saw Rory with a guy at first she didn't recognize him and then she got up closer and saw who he was.
" Jess!" She yelled.
" Hey Lane!" He said and hugged her.
" Oh My god your here! How long?" Lane asks.
" Until Graduation!" Rory pipes in.
" Oh my god that's awesome!" Lane says.
" Yeah I am happy to be back home." Jess said. Lane and Rory gave him a knowingly look " Okay maybe not happy to be back here exactly, but you know i love being close to you two." He smirked.
" Hey How about you come over to my house and see my mom. She is making some of those Tofu biscuits that you used to Love." Lane says sarcastically. He only ate them to get on her good side so he could hang out with Lane also.
" Okay." Jess says. He was the only person Lane knew that actually liked her mother. " How about we meet up with you in 10." Jess says.
" Okay." Rory says.
Jess and Lane walk into the Kim house.
" Mama?" Kim calls out.
" Lane?" She calls back.
" Guess who came to see you!" Lane yells.
" God?" Mrs. Kim asks.
" No, Jess." Lane yells.
Lane and Jess enter the kitchen where Mrs.Kim is cooking. She looks up and smiles.
" Jess How lovely to see you. How are you grandparents.?" She asks with a warm smile
" They are just wonderful Mam. I heard you were making some delicious muffins, and you know I love them." Jess says.
" Oh yes. I remember when you were a young boy you would eat them all." She says handing him one.
He takes a bite out of it and has a hard time swallowing it but pretends to like it. " Mmm...Delicious." he smiles.
" Good. So how long are you here for?" She asks.
" He is staying until graduation." Lane says. But Mrs. Kim ignores Lane and continues to look to Jess for the answer.
" Well. I was thinking of staying with my grandparents until graduation. They are getting old and they need help." he says smiling. He was actually lying, but he didn't want to tell her the reason. The real reason was his mother once again got into some trouble and couldn't handle him.
" That is just so sweet." She says to him.
" Oh it's nothing. I better go. I am meeting up with Rory for Dinner." he says.
" Nice to see you again Jess." She says.
Jess nods and walks out the antique shop. When he reaches the town square he see's Rory with some guy and he walks up to them.
" Hey Rory." He says.
" Oh Hey Jess. Jess, This is Dean, Dean this is my cousin Jess." Rory introduces the two guys.
" Oh. Nice to meet you." Dean says.
" You too. Funny, Rory we talk all the time on the phone, but you never mentioned that you had a boyfriend." Jess says with a huge smirk
" Oh he isn't my boyfriend, we are just...well...uh..i actually just met him." Rory trips over her words. " I was showing him to over to Miss Patty's" Rory says.
" Is that the wisest thing?" Jess asks.
" What?" Dean asks
" Well, She has a thing for younger men." Jess says.
" Oh, uh-" Dean stutters.
" It's fine Dean." Rory says glaring at Jess who had a huge smirk on.
They reach Miss Patty's and she comes out. " Rory, Look at you walking around with two handsome men." Miss Patty says.
" Oh, No. This is Dean, he needs a job, and we were gonna ask you if you heard anything." Rory says.
" I will keep an ear open." She says. " Wait a second. Is that little Jess?" Miss patty asks
" Yes." Jess says rolling his eyes.
" Oh look at you, you have grown up into a handsome man, last
time i saw you, your voice was changing and you were going through puberty!" Miss patty practically yell, making Dean and Rory bursts out laughing as well as all the dancers inside the studio.
" AH JEEZ " Jess exclaims putting his hands to his face. "I'm Getting outta here. Meet you at the Diner Rory." Jess says walking away his face blushing.
After Rory and Dean spilt their separate ways, Rory walks over to the Diner and eats Dinner with her whole family. She looked around the table and saw Jess and her grandparents talking about some classic movie. Jess and William were in a Debate against Amy about it. Lorelai and Luke were whispering to each other and laughing. she could see they were in love, by they way the looked at each other and the simple touches, like the way Luke pulled hair out of his mothers face or the way she put her hand on his somtimes on accident. Rory only wished they would come to their senses and just get together.
Later that night. Rory is working on some homework at her desk when see hears voices outside her window, she slowly opens her window to listen in. She hears her moms voice and Luke's.
" I don't know what i am going to do. I don't wanna to go to them." Lorelai said. Rory could tell she was on the verge of tears.
" Lorelai let me help. Please. I want to. Rory is like a daughter to me." Luke says. Rory smiles at that.
" I know. Are you sure?" She asks.
" Positive." Luke whispers. Rory peeked a little out her window and saw Her mother and Luke hugging. She saw them slowly pull apart and look each other in the eyes. they slowly got closer, their heads where inches away. Rory saw their lips meet, and she saw their passionate kiss get deeper. Usually this would gross Rory out, but this is what she had been waiting for since she was younger. She let out a squeal, she didn't want to, it just came out. She quickly pulled her head in the window but hit her head on the window.
" OW." She tries to whisper but it was let out in a yell.
Luke and Lorelai pull away looking back at the window. They walk over to the window and peak in to see Rory's head right at the window, she was smiling and laughing. Lorelai couldn't help but laugh either. Luke just blushed. Rory ran out of her room and out the front door and hugged her mom tightly.
" Woah. Hun." Lorelai said laughing
" I am SO happy" Rory said smiling. Rory ran to Luke and hugged him tight.
" I love you Daddy." She whispered in his ear. She called him daddy or dad once in a while.
The Next morning Rory woke up real quick. She got up and ran ALL the way to the Danes household. She ran into the house Yelling.
" OH My god.!!!" She yelled as she sat down at the kitchen table where her grandparents sat and a very sleepy Jess sat.
" Whats all the ruckus?" Amy asks laughing.
" Guess who Hooked up last night!!" Rory exclaimed
" Umm... Oh, that blonde singer, Brittney..uh...gosh whats her name...well anyways..her and that blonde boy from that boy band?" Amy says sweetly. Jess looks at his grandmother like she was crazy. 'Bless her dear heart' he thought to himself.
" No, the two people we have been trying to get together since forever." Rory said.
" Who Dear?" William asks
" Mom and Your Son!!" Rory said
" Uncle Luke?" Jess asks. Rory nodded. Jess's jaw dropped.
Later that Morning Rory, Jess, and their grandparents walked into the Diner to see Lorelai sitting at the counter smiling at Luke who was smiling back. Amy Looked at her husband and smirked. They all sat at a Table and started at the two new couple. Luke looked over at the Table and saw them all there. Lorelai turned around and also saw them. She laughed when she saw the same expression on all their faces. A smile and an eyebrow raised.
" Come on you two lovebirds it is time for breakfast." Amy said. Luke came from behind the counter and grabbed Lorelais hand and they walked over the table and sat and ate breakfast stealing flirty smiles at each other all through breakfast that didn't go unnoticed by the rest of the family who were grinning like crazy.
