Wow. This is incredible. I love reading others fans' perspective. And, now I really have to commit to the rewatch, because I definitely want to see in action, for lack of a better term, what you have described. It's been years.

Thank you.

Since this thread is titled: literati:

https://www.buzzfeed.com/jennaguilla...-have-you-read

https://www.buzzfeed.com/krystieyand...-gilmore-girls

I think Rory made me want to read more in high school than I actually did. Now, I can't get my nose out of a book!

I was far more flawed than Rory. I definitely got Ds, Fs, Cs, Bs...that was kind of out of order.

Although, I do tend to have an immediate attraction to a guy who reads.

It's proven badly for me.

that’s not her analysis

I think it would’ve been nice to have seen them bonding over their similar backgrounds

1) I'm sorry, Thanks for letting me know. I must have missed the context.

2) I agree. That's what I think these shows should have shown. Less trope, more authenticity. There was something authentic about Jess. Dean wanted this like fairytale life. Jess was real; however, immodest that sounds. I think what could have made it better was them talking about the things that drew them together, literature and family trauma.

I’ve always been a big reader but I didn’t watch this show for the first time until almost 3 years ago now

definitely I’ve wanted to read more classic literature now though b/c of this show

for me my grades started to not be as good once I hit high school and school just became harder for me (former straight A’s/honors me struggled)

for real

Spoiler:


I was kinda like Rory being at an elite prep school where everyone was smart/high achieving except it was a public high school

oh don’t worry

same here

Jess is definitely my favorite fictional guy who reads

I used to read a bit when I was younger, but I can’t say I have read any of the classics besides a couple for high school English. I was more the science type.

A classic scene with these 3.

I feel like I straddle the line between being interested in science (I’m a bio major) and my love for literature (I guess that’s where me liking some sci-fi comes in to play)

but if I’m reading for pleasure it’s almost always a fiction novel

it’s a shame we got no scene with that trio in the revival

Oh, my God. Did Jess seriously say: "You're cracked!" That's Rory's retort for talking back to Lorelai. #soulmates...in a weird way, in this context.

It was honestly first season fights with Lorelai that I just finished watching, and then, I remembered, that was just her retort.

thinking of you
Rory/Jess, 354 words. pg. set roughly around season six.
Prompt: comparisons are easily done

Quote:
Every time Rory's afraid of missing Jess too much, she pictures him in the back of the bus with his motorcycle jacket on, the tight set of his mouth betraying nothing. It's the worst feeling she's ever had that she can't find a word for (being totally unaware that he was about to disappear on her, her chest tight with hope that they were going to be okay). She tries to associate Jess with that and not being snuggled on the couch watching Almost Famous for the millionth time because he had a thing for Penny Lane, even if he wouldn't admit it.

But on occasion – very rarely, only when she's exhausted from pouring over an article the night before, or when the distance from home is painful – she imagines she shares the apartment with Jess instead.

It's something she used to think about a lot when she was younger (another apartment, obviously, something more cramped and set in New York, books piled on the window sill, records on the floor).

Jess' things would be vastly different from Logan's. There probably wouldn't be a pool table and it wouldn't be half as neat; the bed would never get made but the fridge would always be stocked with more than beer. He'd keep a makeshift ashtray hidden on the balcony. The books would consume them, would take over every free space until they didn't need couches or tables or desks, they could just build them all out of books. His clothes would have holes in the seams.

He wouldn't go out a lot, wouldn't have a boisterous group of friends. He'd reluctantly let her read excerpts from whatever he was working on, pretending he wasn't hovering over her shoulder as she scanned the words. They would order in, sleep in, get tucked up on the couch and read the classics. She would wake up every morning to Jess' arm around her waist as he kissed an I love you into her hair.

Rory takes a deep breath, pictures him on the back of the bus, and remembers she's got Logan waiting at home.
found this ficlet

Wow, that's great! So poetic and meaningful, and TRUE.

p.s.: I found this:

One of my favorite scenes.
