Author has written 2 stories for Gilmore Girls.

Please support those authors who wrote my "Favorite Stories," and those who have written more than one of my favorites and have therefore been listed as "Favorite Authors."

June 2015: A decade ago, I bore a username synonymous with this one. I couldn't write, but I loved to read fanfiction. I grew up, read less fanfic and still can't write. I'll always love Gilmore Girls and Rory & Jess.

Thanks to everyone who has kept some of my favorite characters alive. :)

Bittersweet by northernscarlet reviews
Jess and Rory bumped into each other in LA, one on a book tour and the other filling in for a fellow reporter. It had been two years since they last saw each other and it felt like no time had passed. However, history and intermediate years had made their reunion a little bit bittersweet. (AN: Going through reconstruction. Splitting chapters up. Grammar. Etc. Be mindful of dates!)

To every thing there is a season by Esmeralda2134 reviews
It snows when Rory comes home to say goodbye. However, someone else is back in town- and some goodbyes are more final than others it seems. Literati, implied JavaJunkie. Inspired by the Gilmore Girl revival, this is my take on what happens during those four seasons.

The Gilmore Guide to Traveling the World by hokej reviews
When Rory returns from the campaign trail she seizes an opportunity to work in Europe as a freelance travel writer. Meanwhile Jess has become a famous novelist, with the first feature film in his book trilogy premiering soon. Jess is on Rory's mind more than she wants to admit, no matter the distance - or oceans - between them.

And You by storyteller629 reviews
It was stupid. She knew after all these years, it was stupid. Using her only free afternoon in town to sit on a park bench, eat a stupid hot dog, and hope. Literati set well after the series.

Gypsy Beans by MsTiggy reviews
Post-finale Literati (with JavaJunkie as well). Rory bumps into Jess after three years of not seeing him. Sparks fly, coffee spills. Will their timing finally be right? Rated T (or T-Plus) for language and talk of sex (nothing graphic, though).

Not the Usual Kind by zemarha reviews
FutureFic. Rory's life is not quite going as planned. The realization that she may have never really gotten over one Jess Mariano isn't helping. Tipsy phone calls to ex-lovers generally don't help either, but when did that ever stop anyone?

Untitled Literati Project by daughtersofthesun reviews
"I heard this rumor, though, that the best man gets to walk the maid of honor down the aisle." He stops in the doorway, his face a mere two feet from hers, completely straight and void of any and all telling emotion. "So I guess I'll see you in a few hours." Post series multi-chapter future!Lit.
