THE BEST OF IT
- Gilmore Girls ; Rory/Paris ; PG-13 ; the one where Rory and Paris pretend to be girlfriends for JUSTICE!, and a documentary crew. (Previous chapters here.
)Chapter 5: Damn It, Romeo!
- In which Rory has a thought-provoking chat with Lane, and then quite the night out at the (high school) theatre with her fake beloved.
“You know. You were around when we first met. It’s a miracle that Paris and I even get along. We were foes. And I don’t use the word ‘foe’ lightly.”
“Of course I remember,” Lane agrees. “Like that time she was all hell bent on psyching you out over that Shakespeare test.”
“Yes! I hit a deer because of her. Basically. A sweet, innocent deer.”
“And Paris leaned down close to you and recited a love sonnet in your ear to threaten you.”
“… Don’t make it sound like that.”
“I’m literally just relaying what you said happened.”
“Oh God.” Rory shoves a deeply angst-driven forkful of pie into her mouth.
