I felt so upset and depressed about the recent news on no 8th season that I couldn’t even THINK about sleeping. So instead I wrote my S7 fanfic the 21st episode before one I intended to write so I could write my last episode and have it out before the real one ends. It’s my personal race of closure and I feel as if I have to do this. In the episode before this one Richard has his heart attack and I figured that wasn’t as important to get out as my two-parter finale. PS at this part in my story L/L are married and Lorelai is pregnant. Here is the summary....
Episode 21: “Life is a Major Pain”- Emily and Richard discover they are low on money and decide to live in Stars Hollow, much to Lorelai and Luke’s dismay. While Lorelai tries to balance the stress of dealing with them and with the new construction of the Butterfly Inn, she starts to feel pain and worries. She decides to keep it a secret. Meanwhile, Rory organizes herself for the big move to Boston. When she attends the college graduation ceremony an even BIGGER event happens that throws everyone into a panic.
here is a small sample:
Lorelai and Luke exited the house and noticed a large group of townspeople down the block. They took Lorelai’s Jeep to the site and hopped out. They ran up to Miss Patty who was standing there with awe.
Lorelai: “Miss Patty, what is going on here?”
Miss Patty: “Oh some new couple in town are tearing down two houses and going to use the two lots of land to put up one gigantic house,”
Lorelai: “WHAT? Who would be CRAZY enough to pull a stunt like this at five thirty in the morning?!”
“Lorelai! Over here!”
At the sound of the woman’s voice, Lorelai cringed. Luke’s jaw nearly fell to the ground in astonishment. Lorelai had to mentally push herself to look towards the ex-houses to see whom it was that had called out to her.
There, standing before the wreckage were Emily and Richard Gilmore wearing yellow construction hats.
Lorelai: “I’m still asleep, right? This is just a nightmare, right?”
Luke: “Well if this is a nightmare, we’re both sharing the same one,”
Emily: “Lorelai don’t just stand there like the Tin Man, get over here,”
Lorelai heaved a great sigh and then marched up to them.
Lorelai: “Mom, Dad… what are you DOING?! You are disturbing everyone in town!”
Emily: “You don’t have to yell at us like this,”
Lorelai: “It’s five thirty in the morning! I have to go to work in an hour… I would LIKE to use up any extra Z time while I can, so does everyone else in town!”
Richard: “If anyone in this town had any real business sense they would get up at this time. If they are sleeping while this construction is going on then it’s certainly not our problem,”
Lorelai: “Don’t you have to get a PERMIT for blowing up two houses at five thirty in the morning?”
Emily: “Lorelai don’t be absurd, we did not blow up the houses and of course we got a permit for this. That man…. Um, Taylor I think it was… signed the papers,”
Lorelai clenched her fists mumbling: “He would…”
Just then Kirk came by wearing a yellow hard hat and pretty covered with dirt.
Kirk: “Okay, the houses have been demolished successfully,”
Lorelai nearly choked.
Lorelai: “YOU? YOU’RE the contractor? You tore down the two houses and you are going to build the new one?!”
Kirk: “I would LOVE to but unfortunately no one would give me a license to do that, I’m afraid. Can’t figure out why. BUT I am the assistant to one,”
Kirk pointed over to TJ who held a huge architect outline map in his hands. Richard walked over to him and pointed things from the map to where the house would be.
Lorelai nearly fell over in shock.
Lorelai: “TJ?! You two are having your construction done by a Village People’s reject like TJ?”
Emily shot Lorelai a glare.
Emily: “I most certainly did not. He must be qualified enough if he has a license,” (yeah, by this time TJ finally passed his test and now has a license in my story… scary, huh?)http://www.fanfiction.net/s/3063949/14/
