Luke: I mean, I know you like reading. Since you like reading, you might as well read something you’re gonna get graded on. So you can get graded on something you like.. because you like reading.
Jess: What are you babbling about?
Luke: I went to see your principal today.
Luke: He says you’re flunking out. He says you’re not showing up for class. He says you stole their baseballs.
can i just point out again how cute alexis is?
Just thought I would share this new blog I found. If you’re a Literati fan, and you enjoy writing head canon, go submit!
I started re-watching old episodes of Gilmore Girls a little while ago, & I recently realized that Rory & Lorelai are actually really judgmental, pretentious, & if I may be so frank, condescending assholes. They always put down other people based on what they like to listen to or read or watch & seem to pride themselves on what they think are unusual or unique tastes.
If it weren’t for the fabulous supporting cast, their high & mighty attitudes would make the show unwatchable.
I have a theory that Rory and Lorelai are the original hipsters. Every indie kid should take note, that this show is the origin of your lifestyle! Haha.
Watching this show when I was in 5th and 6th grade, I was introduced to music and movies I otherwise would not have known, and I think that really shaped the way I percieved things as I got older. I agree that they do possess those qualities, but I don’t think it creates a negative effect for the show.
These aspects of Lorelai and Rory’s personalities makes me wonder why they are that way. Obviously we all know the luxurious world Lorelai was raised in, and her distaste for that way of living. I think that had a direct result in Lorelai’s own judgemental attitude, just in reverse of her parents. It’s a rebellion that she never outgrew, and which she passed on to Rory, along with her quirky taste in books and music. I think because Rory was much more cultured and well-read at such a young age, it prevented her from relating to her peers, which again contributes to her own pretentiousness.
But the fact that I can sit here and analyze all of these not-so-great qualities of the Gilmore Girls shows how dynamic and well-written these characters are. So I disagree that they’re attitudes make the show “unwatchable.” To me, the fact that they aren’t perfect makes it all the more interesting.
Anonymous said: This may sound really dumb... but every time I remember I'm not a part of this world my heart breaks a little. Like at the end of watching a few episodes in row or when I hear a song by Sam Phillips or something... it makes me really sad. I watched this from the beginning and during some of the most important years of my life. I just feel like it's actually my own little corner of the world.
Does that make any sense to you?
Completely. I feel that when I watch it too.
