“I’m building a house,” he tells her when they bump into each other one day at the gas station.
“Oh!” she says, “that’s great.” So grown up, she thinks. And probably requiring lots of sweatiness and heavy lifting. How exactly was she so good when they were kids? He didn’t sport a tool belt back then, she remembers. That’s got to be it.
Head on his shoulders, and she lets him carry her to their bedroom. Her skirt’s all bunched up when he puts her down, and she feels the dirtiest she’s ever felt. Dirty little girl on a tryst, and she’s going to fuck this man until he begs.
Adult, established relationship, pegging. Not sure I completely buy this, but oh my, it’s hot like burning while still being sweet. My favourite combo!
Being Rory’s husband is different from being her boyfriend. Different from the last extended time, nothing like the half-assed one before that, but in some ways similar to the beginning. They have routines, an ever-evolving set of in-jokes; he feels like he’s hers.
Mature, post-series. I’ve always had a soft spot for Dean. This hits that perfect Gilmore Girls tone, warm and funny and overall happy-making.
