Hey there, Kate, welcome back! I don’t want to see ASP ruin the RL story anymore than she already has so I’m not sure I’d want to see more but then there’s my nagging love for this show and these characters which make me think and feel otherwise.

Hi Jen!

I totally get that and I've gathered that a lot of fans are in the same boat. Personally, I have a very different read on the revival and R/L in particular. A lot of the characters that had their own perspectives in the series (Logan, Lane) were shorted quite a bit for the sake of focusing in on Emily/Lorelai/Rory. That's not a bad thing, in my opinion -- but it definitely limiting in granting context. Every time I have watched or re-watched, I don't see things as a death knell for R/L. I actually see it as a natural landing point for Rory's character (again, totally know I'm in the minority here) because she is so lost and so determined to live life on her own terms. As much as happy endings all around are attractive, I don't find them very satisfying sometimes, and I don't think a nice tidy bow on R/L at the end of the revival would have felt right.

So much context is left out. We don't know Logan's context at all, really. We don't know the real story with Odette. Every answer he gives is non-committal and that last scene where Rory is ready to go from the Inn and Finn is trying to stop her -- I can't help but think there is so much untold in that scene.

I won't continue to rattle on about this because I've truly been thinking about it since the credits rolled on my initial viewing of "Fall", so I could fill many, many pages.

My Sophie hopes aren't dead, just realistically delayed, I think. That and the fact that, as much as I love R/L, I love the show for so much more than R/L, are why I think I'll always want more.

I like to think of it as an open ending. But, I suppose I am more disappointed in seeing Logan move proverbially backwards than anything specifically with RL as a couple. Rory floundering if anything made me love her more much like I felt in s6 with her rift and dropping out of Yale.

Ah! I’ve been meaning to respond to this but forgot! Anyway, I couldn’t agree more with you, especially on this bit. I love RL but I also love a bunch of other characters in this show so my appetite for more will always be plentiful.

Shu - You’re right, it was very much an open ending so there are so many possibilities to where the show would go.

And I would agree with you, Shu, about it seeming that Logan slipped backward a bit -- I think that was the great travesty of AYITL -- but I've tried to look at it as Logan's perspective was incomplete in light of the prominence of the Rory/Lorelai/Emily storylines. AYITL wasn't about his POV -- but Matt snuck in a whole host of emotion into his expressions during their scenes. There's more there. There has to be! At least that's what I keep telling myself.

Which brings me to the fic I've been writing for 2+ years now ... I finally put up the prologue yesterday, which felt super bizarre after working on and refining it for so long. it's Logan's perspective in parallel to the revival storyline: A Year in Polychrome (on Fanfiction.net)

Maybe you'll like it. Maybe you won't. It's fully written, so nothing's going to change because of reader feedback -- but I do hope some of you might give it a try!

That’s cool. I love how they include Luke as a cool grandpa.

Oh, that's good to know. I love the idea of Logan as a father. I think he'd be such a great dad and would have so much fun with a kid.

Very true.

I can’t help but think the happiest we saw Rory in the revival was when she was with Logan, amiright?
