Gilmore Girls

the games that we can handle by [archiveofourown.org profile] returnsandreturns
"Okay," Paris says, again, gesturing towards her erratically, “Here’s the plan. We need to make good on that admittedly questionable spring break kiss of our youth—that way, people will assume that we’re a lesbian power couple instead of two pathetic rapidly aging losers with no prospects whose freaking hearts go all a-flutter when they see a cute boy.”

“We’re not—anything in that sentence,” Rory says.
This is EXACTLY how the bathroom scene should have gone! <3

Devil's Cub

a thing with feathers by [archiveofourown.org profile] hazel
So Devil's Cub is my very favorite Heyer, and possibly my favorite romance of all time, and this version of it is utterly brilliant. I am completely entranced by this version of Mary and Dominic, and their continental adventures, plus the story rehabs Mary's mother and sister, as well! Absolutely amazing.

Gilmore Girls

what are you afraid of, making it better? by [archiveofourown.org profile] dollsome
"But I was happy doing it because the whole time I thought, ‘I bet this will make Lorelai smile.’ I can’t tell you all the stupid stuff I’ve done over the years and liked doing just because I knew you would smile at it. And I don’t want there to ever be a day when you don’t feel like smiling and it’s my fault you feel that way. So if I’m making you feel bad, you have to tell me, okay? Because then I’m letting you down, and that’s the one thing I never want to do.”

“Really?” she teases, starting to smile. “The one thing?”

“I’m not wild about the idea of watching Stars Hollow Elementary’s production of Godspell either,” he says dryly, “but we both know you’re going to drag me into that one.”
Emily saves the day and Luke and Lorelai talk instead of being stupid. The perfect s6 fix-it. *happy sigh*

The Shower Curtains Have (Hippo) Eyes by [livejournal.com profile] dollsome
"Luke. Are you seeing this??"

"I'm seeing it."

"Uh, no. If you were seeing this, then you would see that this--" She pauses, does some Vanna White arms-- "obviously has Lorelai Gilmore written all over it."

'This' is a shower curtain covered in cartoon hippos with really big eyes. The eyes of some hippos who have been dabbling with some illegal substances. (As hippos do.) Just between you and her, Lorelai's not really that into it. She is not the same woman who once fell in love at first sight with what her mother christened a "semi-pornographic, leering monkey lamp." She's got higher standards for her semi-pornographic interior design decisions these days. But. The hippos have 'Luke will freak in the face of us!' written aaaall over 'em. She has to at least tease him with the horrifying possibility of a life where this dwells in their bathroom.

"You know what," Luke says then, with this appraising little nod, "yeah. I can see it."
Ahahahahaha! This is an adorable and pitch-perfect post-series Luke/Lorelai story.

Lilo & Stitch

all your heart-melodies by [archiveofourown.org profile] thingswithwings
At seven, Lilo wants to grow up to be an intergalactic space hero.

Stitch shows her how to build plasma guns (Nani puts them on a high shelf), how to rig up a can opener and a radio into a machine that will open a portal to an alternate universe (Nani says she can't do it in the house) and how to first swallow and then regurgitate useful objects, like handcuff keys or quarters (Nani, though disgusted, can't help but be impressed). She and Stitch roam the forests and swim the ocean and are the best of friends, and though Lilo doesn't talk much to other kids, she has Stitch and she has Nani and they are all she needs. She dreams at night of a future among space aliens, green and wriggly, tall and blue, grave and comic and of infinite variety, and when she wakes she can still see their cities behind her eyes, gleaming and verdant.
This made me all teary and achy in exactly the same way as the movie. *sniffle* Oh, my heart.

It should be easy, she thinks. She should say, pick one and leave the other and they should be fine, together, waiting out the ends of a fight they're coming dangerously close to winning.

Her mouth twists. "Yeah, well, I'm almost twenty. It's not like it was five years ago."

She could have done it other ways, but this way had been easy—or, well, as easy as anything was going to be.

Rory eyes her warily. "What's that supposed to mean?"

"Sexual experimentation!" says Paris. "Who else are you going to explore your burgeoning sexuality with?"

"With whom," says Rory, because she always resorts to pedantry when she's panicking. "Paris, this is seriously not a good idea."

"It seriously is," says Paris. And she's leaning in again, and Rory really should get off the couch, and she really should put a stop to this, but instead she lets Paris cup her head with one hand and bring their mouths together.

Sports Night

down through my ribs by [livejournal.com profile] torigates
Dan looked across the room from his still blank computer screen. It didn't help that Natalie had assigned him a segment on the build up to the FIFA World Cup in Korea and Japan. Being as it was the first time the tournament was to be held in Asia it was supposed to be a big deal. Dan tried to point out that it was still a soccer tournament, and likely no one cared.

"Two billion people beg to differ, Danny," Natalie said with a grin. "Do the story."

Dan grumbled and accepted his punishment—

"It is not a punishment," Natalie said. "It's an assignment." The smug look on her face, however, suggested differently.

—and pegged Natalie as a sadist (what that said about himself, he chose to ignore).

"Sometimes I suspect not even then."

"Hallucinations produced by mass hysteria?" Dan nodded sagely. "I've wondered about that before, too."

"Guys, please don't talk about Stars Hollow when I'm not around," Rory said, suddenly and miraculously standing in their doorway. "You always end up with those crazy conspiracy theories, and then you both give me weird looks for weeks."

It’s ridiculous to think that she didn’t love Lorelai. She only wanted what was best for her, tried to get her the best of everything because she thought she deserved it. Because she was a beautiful Gilmore girl with gorgeous dark hair. Because she could own the world if she wanted to. Richard and Emily would see to that.

Hot and sweet and oh, Luke.

As if she is reading your mind, the next dazed words out of her mouth are, "Stand still." It's as if she wants to preserve this second forever.

But you don't stand still, because it feels like that is what you've been doing your whole life and you're sick to death of it. You can't stand still, with Lorelai Gilmore in your kitchen and your arms and your life, open and inviting, watching ice melt.

I apparently have a thing for Lex reading comics and eating Oreos, so it’s a really good thing zahra writes about it, and does it so very, very well. Lex is alone on Christmas Eve, and he’s pretty put out with Clark about it. But it all works out in the end.
