Hey, I just updated my season 8 fanfic on Fanfiction.Net and Fanlib. I have two chapters. One is a shorter episode with the rivival of the dance marathon and the next one is the episode where Luke proposes to Lorelai. Here is the summery for episode 5: “Dance, Dance Resolution”- When Taylor’s latest festive move puts the gazebo in really bad shape; the town is in desperate need to raise funds to rebuild it. So the Dance Marathon is revived but with more improvements and more rewards for the winners. Which of course has Lorelai eager and waiting… that is for a very unfortunate Luke. It’s Lorelai/Luke, Rory/Oliver, Kirk/Lulu, Sookie/Jackson, Lane/Zach, Babbette/Mori, and a few other pairings. In the end; someone will win and someone will get an even better surprise… a proposal. Who will it be? Read the next episode to find out. http://www.fanfiction.net/s/3557098/5/Season_8_is_Great
Here's the summery for episode 6: “What I’m TRYING to Say is…”- After several failed attempts to pop the question to Lorelai, Luke is about to sell the ring to a pawn shop with Jackson when Sookie goes into labor. Lorelai and Rory take Sookie to the hospital where they all meet up. Luke learns of a secret there both Lorelai and Rory have kept from him and it causes a huge fight with Lorelai. However, when Sookie has her baby the tides change and so does Luke’s attitude on everything. Thank goodness for him Rory is there to lend support.http://www.fanfiction.net/s/3557098/6/Season_8_is_Great
Here's a snippet from episode 6...
At this Luke nervously tried to pull something out of his jacket pocket but it fell out and bounced on the floor. It landed right in front of Lorelai’s feet. Lorelai bent down, picked it up and stared at it in disbelief.
Luke: “I bought that for you because I wanted to say something important to you,”
Lorelai: “I don’t get it…. are you a jewelry thief now or suddenly turned into Prince?”
Luke: “Of course not! What I’m TRYING to say is….”
Luke gulped and shifted nervously. Finally he took a deep breath and barely able to look her in the face, he asked…
Luke: “Will you marry me?”
Lorelai exploded with: “That was NOT funny the first time and it’s definitely NOT funny now!”
Luke: “I wasn’t joking! Believe me even Ed McMahon wouldn’t of laughed at that one!”
Lorelai: “You’re serious?”
Lorelai tried to look through Luke with her eyes to detect any hint of teasing.
Luke confirmed: “Al Gore serious,”
He stood firm and looked her straight in the eyes.
Lorelai quickly ducked her head to glance at the ring in her hand. She started muttering to herself over and over again “he’s serious”.
Rory: “Uh, Mom?”
Lorelai continued to mutter. Luke walked over to where Rory was standing and waved at Lorelai.
Lorelai yet again continued to mutter to herself.
Rory to Luke: “Uh Houston, we have a problem,”
Luke: “Now this is an unexpected development,”
Rory: “I think she broke,”
Luke: “Did I say something wrong?”
Rory: “Not really. Maybe it wasn’t so much what you SAID, maybe it was what you DID,”
Luke: “Did? I thought I did it good?”
Rory: “Well, I think it was the execution,”
Luke: “Execution? I did it fine. I held on until the right moment and then gave it to her,”
Rory: “Technically you DROPPED it to her,”
Luke: “It was really hard to bring it up but…”
Lorelai suddenly interrupted them by snickering in a trans: “Dirty, dirty… dirty,”
Luke and Rory eyed each other.
Rory: “I guess it never fails,”
Luke sighed: “No matter how out of it she is; that part still works,”
Rory: “Okay that’s it!”
Rory marched in between them.
Rory: “You two are the most pathetic couple I have ever seen! You would give Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy a run for their money! You can’t even get a proposal scene right! I have to step in as a director if there’s any hope for you guys!”
Rory stormed over to Lorelai.
Rory: “Mom, let me take your hand,”
Lorelai: “Okay, where do you want to put it?”
Rory: “Well Groucho Marx, I’m going to hand it over to Luke,”
Lorelai: “But he has a hand of his own,”
Rory: “Mom! Just go along with me here!”
Lorelai nodded still in a trans-like state. Rory grabbed her hand and pulled her within inches away from Luke. Then she gave her hand to Luke. Rory then went to her other hand.
Rory: “Now give me the ring,”
Lorelai: “Nooo, it’s MY ring… Luke gave it to me,”
Rory: “Yes Mom, it IS your ring but I need it for a minute so Luke can give it back to you… okay?”
Lorelai: “I guess if I get it back…”
However, Lorelai was reluctant to let it got and Rory nearly had go into a tug-of-war to release it from Lorelai’s grip.
Rory gave the ring back to Luke who held it in one hand.
Luke: “Uh all right… now what?”
Rory: “Get down on your knees soldier,”
Luke shook his head firmly.
Luke: “Nooo way! Asking her to marry me then getting that kind of reaction was embarrassing enough but there is NO WAY, I am going to sink down to that level of…”
Rory furious shouted: “LUKE!”
Luke nearly yelped: “What?”
Rory: “Do you love my Mom?”
Rory: “Do you want to marry her?”
