Author has written 8 stories for Gilmore Girls.

I'm possibly too old to be spending my spare minutes writing my own ending to my favourite show but on discovering this site a few weeks ago I couldn't help myself.

I was a 90's teenager who fell in love with Pacey Witter long before Joey came to her senses.

As a uni student I followed Felicity as she followed Ben to NYC and found herself there instead.

I was in my final year of university when the Gilmore girls came into my life and I was at that in between age where I could relate to both of the main characters in different scenarios, experiencing my first love and heartbreak alongside these strong women. I now enjoy sharing them with my husband and 6 year old son who very possibly loves the show even more than I do!

As a new mother up all hours of the night feeding a newborn I was taken back to my choir girl roots and got caught up in the mischief and melodrama that is Glee.

I do love my teen dramas but I also enjoy scifi and Walter Bishop is one of my all time favourite characters written with so much depth and integrity, even the ugly parts of his personality, Fringe is a show I started watching because of one of its main stars but I continued to watch because it was so captivating.

So many incredible characters have made me stop and think and I take my hat off to the amazing minds that created them.

Well, I think that's enough about me and how I came to be here.

Thankyou in advance to anyone who takes the time to read Forever Tethered.

This is my first attempt at writing a fiction piece of any kind really.

If you'd like me to read your stories please PM me and I will as soon as I can.

Enjoy today xx

This is a bit outdated now but I am still around. I spent the best part of the last year growing a tiny human and the last 6 months nourishing her and watching her grow. Gilmore girls is still very close to my heart and I hope to finish Future Days at some point when my writer's block lifts. Revival time will almost certainly see more people coming into this community and I hope it stays as welcoming and supportive as I have always found it to be.

Holidays and Happenstance by enserio reviews
It became a new normal that they would run into each other once or twice a year, drawn together at Luke and Lorelai's for family holidays and events. What does this new normal look like for Jess and Rory? Banter, late night conversations, old friends becoming new friends, hints of tension and accidental touches. Literati slow burn, scattered moments after S7.

Stargazing by JohnGreenGirl reviews

Corriendo by D Veleniet reviews
"Look, I'm not asking to define – this." She motions between the two of them. "I don't need to put a label on it or call it anything. I just wanted to know how you felt." Her tone is forcibly light, like it really isn't that big a deal to her at all. Hailey/Rodrigo post season 3.

Relationship Renaissance by junienmomo reviews
Complete. Starting with the waltz, we look at Luke and Lorelai in a slightly AU setting (I play fast and loose with the original plot, it's not Gilmore Girl Zombies).

This Love by Gilmoremarianodanes reviews
A 4x12 rewrite. It was weird, almost too weird, but Rory couldn't just sit idly by and do nothing. At the very least, her ex-boyfriend freezing to death in the middle of town would be the kind of scandal Stars Hollow could do without. Rory Gilmore was going to save Jess Mariano whether he liked it or not. Literati.

A Place Called Home by luvtheheaven reviews
What if Jess came back at the beginning of season 5? A totally different take on the show post season 4. An original character (Clara) plays an important non-romantic role. Pro-Literati & Java Junkie. Includes Lorelai, Jess, Rory, Luke, and every possible relationship among them, since I truly love all of these dynamics. Unfinished but I hope to finish this one day.
