Author has written 12 stories for Gilmore Girls.
12/10/2016~ Happy Holidays everyone. It looks like quite a few people have been reading my stories this month. Just like I've been reading some of my favorites.
I loved seeing the characters in the reboot again. But it seemed wrong somehow. A lot of it seemed filler. Total filler which could have been spent showing us the changes the characters had experienced over the years.
I don't think Rory grew at all in the timespan. She seemed to be the same Rory who was panicked about not finding a job after Yale. I hated the cheating with Logan, and I know lots of Logan fans were thrilled because of the pregnancy and the idea he'd chose Rory over his fiancé. I just don't see that happening. I don't think he's strong enough. I did love the Life and Death Brigade scenes though.
Again, Jess is cast in the role of "Get her back on her feet" and we didn't see any growth from ASP there either.
However, I loved Emily's storyline. She out of all of the Gilmore Girls grew as a character throughout the series and continued to grow in the reboot.
Lorelai seemed just as unaware and selfish as she did in the early seasons. When she talked first and then always apologized after. (Be it to Sookie about not giving relationship advice or yelling at her mother about her reaction to marrying Max without the whole story. I'm rewatching the show and there are so many instances of this.)
I really liked the town characters. Taylor and especially Kirk. Kirk "getting imaginative" with the decorations was perfect. I actually liked the Alice and Wonderland theme he created. It was beautiful. I was sad the town and Emily weren't there for the wedding.
I was dissappointed with Rory being pregnant, but not suprised. I just wish it was the Wookies.
Thoughts? Feel free to PM me and remember to review!
8/20/2016- Thank you new readers for the favorites! Please consider reviewing. I love reviews!
5/6/15- Sadly, I found out yesterday that the young man who inspired About A Boy has been returned to his biological mother. His Aunts bid for custody has failed, and it is breaking my heart.
2/15/15- So in reading someone else's work. (A very good new story called Forever Tethered) I realized my time stamps in About A Life may actually be distracting. Review and let me know... I put them in to help me keep track of the timeframe, but do they confuse the issue?
11/6/2014- Wow! I can't believe how many readers my stories still have. Are you re-reading or are you new? Drop me a review or a message to tell me why you keep coming back to them, or what you like. I'm always amazed by the stats for stories which were written so long ago. Makes me feel loved, and inspires me to write. Reviews would inspire me even more... I lost my muse a while back, and am hoping for his return. There's still Tristan's story, and wouldn't it be nice to find out more about some of our favorite characters? Who dso you want to see? What do you dream of next?
A little about me: I'm an avid reader, movie watcher and a fan of Gilmore Girls.
My stories are Post Series and Canon through season 7. I ship Jess & Rory and Luke & Lorelai, although I do try to write about as many of the characters as possible. I would highly suggest reading them in chronological order, (and I numbered them for you) and not skipping. This is, I admit, a way of trying to get more readers to read my poor neglected Christmas party story... I try to weave the stories to create a more complete world, so they reference each other, and what happens in one might effect something four stories later. If I could turn them into one long story without losing the few reviews I have, I would. I've also noticed some people seem to skip To Make A Man and Constructing A Match. Sure, they're about Logan and Dean, but there's also storyline info about our favorite couples in them that I reference later... And a naked valet fighting for a thong.
Thank you to everyone who's reviewed. I get quite a few readers, but not many review, so I really appreciate those who take the time!

About A Boy- #8- My personal favorite, because it's inspired by a real boy's life. Sadly, he has again been returned to his mom. His Aunts bid for custody failed. And no, the horrific event which happened to Garret and are brought up in A Look At A Life didn't ever happen to the real boy the story is based on. (to my knowledge) Although based on my own work with elementary age children, I've seen too many instances of it occuring.
To Make A Man- Logan's story #9
Constructing A Match- Dean's & Shane's story #10- also includes a "guest" appearance by Mrs. Kim
A Look At A Life- #11 in my series, this story is about Liz's death, her life, and how those close to her deal with the aftermath.
Tarred and Feathered- #12 -a fairy tale told from Percy the Swan's point of view.
A couple of my favorites-
I love the words Andra-ggfan gives Jess in the last chapter of Flat Screen Saga. Beautiful, heart wrenching, makes me want to read his book!
I love the first chapter of Across the World by Once-Was-Serendipity, it was hilarious. This may be my favorite Jess/Rory, although I do think Jess might be too angsty in it. Then again, we didn't get to see his response to Truncheon after Rory left. Love the story though. Also love Of Books and Music by her.
I'm totally entranced by the relationship between Jess and his daughter in Iscah McKrae's Pay The Piper. All of her stuff is great, makes you think.
Lost0and0found in another great author who writes with heart.
Thank you for your reviews. I do appreciate them, make an attempt to respond to them and I learn from them. Several of my stories were inspired by reviews, written because of them! Thank you also to all those who favorite my writing. Even if you don't review, I appreciate the notice.
