Rory's Book List
Here's a list of assignments in case you're looking for a story idea. No due dates, and no grades, so what do you have to lose? :)
Answered challenges are on their own page (which you can reach below), with a link to the related story beneath the challenge, but feel free to write your own version of the story if it's different from the one already posted.
If you want to submit a challenge, e-mail it to me under the title: Challenge. Challenges can be in the form of a general story plot (ex. Dean and Rory are stranded when his car breaks down.) or they can be a list of elements to be included in the story (ex. the supermarket, a yellow highlighter, a mouse, a twinkie, etc.) If you don't want me to link to your e-mail or use your name, let me know.
The WB Chad Murray Fic Challenge
Ok I just was watching Dawson's Creek last night when "wham!" it hit me. I really, really crazy idea. First off I'm a Rory/Tristan fan, always have been, always will be. Though watching Chad play the playboy Charlie on another episode of Capeside drama I came up with a challenge, one that I would know I would blow writing. So I have decided to share my idea.
It's a Crossover Challenge... between Dawsons Creek and Gilmore Girls. I know it's weird but both have Chad in them. Well here's how I think it would work. Rory goes down to Boston to look at Harvard and some other universities/colleges. Tadda since Dawson's Creek I think is set with everyone going to a college/unveristy in Boston this is how I would think it would work.
Im suggesting a Charlie/Rory fic. I know, weird but it's doable! Any one agree with me? I think a lot of people oculd write something about this?? Please someone do it! I'm beggin ya! I'm in the mood to see something like this. Also I just want to see if any one would like to see something like this??

NEW - Submitted by: Zepposgirl
Here's an idea I've been tossing around, but I'm not a great writer. Let's make it PG-13, because that's what the show's all about. And please make it true to their characters. I know there's tons of great writers out there, so here goes:
Luke injures his hamstring while playing baseball. It's an evening game, and Lorelai and Rory are there to watch Dean play. I'm not sure what position Luke plays, but the injury has to be plausible (like while sliding into second base or falling while trying to make a great catch). He injures himself early in the game, so the game isn't over yet when Lorelai offers to take him home. On the way home, she remembers that when she hurt her back, Babette had an herbal cure that helped her (I know that it didn't happen in the actual episode, but what if?), so she decides to take Luke to her place first. Luke is in no position to argue, his leg hurts pretty badly, and knowing his aversion to hospitals and all things medical, Lorelai convinces him easily. The remedy has to be applied topically. But while Lorelai is getting the stuff, Babette also offers her a recipe and ingredients for a concoction that can lessen the pain if it is taken orally. Lorelai convinces Luke to go into her house so she can whip up the stuff. The drink happens to have some alcohol in it, and relaxes Luke a lot. Luke's inhibitions are lowered and he tells Lorelai a lot more than he intended. And while she's rubbing the ointment on his leg, he feels more than he intended. She feels more than she intended, too. The night ends innocently, Lorelai doesn't want to take advantage. But they wake up in her bed the next morning (show what leads up to that). Maybe they're ready to take it to the next level (like finally admitting their feelings for each other).
Submitted by: Monika
Okay, another TRORY story. It must be humouristic but touching and with R/T ending (do not need to be a happy-ending) Must contain:
Submitted by: emrie
Luke and Lorelai are already dating. Emily insists on Luke coming to dinner, and Jess ends up coming too, against Lorelai's protests. Emily and Richard end up liking Jess more than Luke.
*Emily asking "Excuse me, are we living in a Victorian novel?"
*Jess and Richard discussing Dante's "Inferno," with references to the circles of Hell
*Rory trying to kick Lorelai under the table and hitting Luke instead
*References to Lorelai's drinking habits as a teenager
*Jess flirting with the maid, and Rory getting annoyed
*An embarrassing tour of Rory's room where Jess notes her N'Sync poster.
*A running joke about an article of Luke's clothing (keep it PG please, i.e: his new shoes)
*Rory saying "I told you so" to at least three people at different times
There can be Rory/Jess undercurrents, but please no "kissing in Lorelai's bedroom" kind of plot. Keep it subtle.
Submitted by: Jayce
Write a story in which Lorelai drags Luke on a road trip, and they end up at the Pacific Ocean. The reason is up to you, but it has to be spur-of-the-moment. It has to take place sometime after The Bracebridge Dinner and include some scenes with Jess and Rory (not necessarily together) of what they do while Lorelai and Luke are gone. Also make it L/L, but don't have it be mushy, gushy, and corny.
Include the following too.
-Lorelai punching Luke
-Rory and Lorelai on the phone with Lorelai complaining about how boring Kansas is(no offense to those who live there)
-Luke cussing out the car when it breaks down in the middle of nowhere and ranting to Lorelai about coming on the trip
-a sunset over the ocean
Okay, to wrap it up. Make it about a PG-13 fic and I don't care who Rory is with. You don't even have to bring it up if you don't want to. Be creative and have fun!
Tristan/Rory fic based on the movie : The Bone Collector, except that Tristan fully recovers at the end and there has to be more romance (the movie has none)
Tristan Rory fic based on the movie: Pretty Woman (I know that Rory never will be a hooker but the movie is one of the greatest love stories of all-color-movie-times)

What If Challenge
i would like someone to write a story about what would have happened if Lorelai had married Christopher and gone along with her parent's plan for her life when she got pregnant. I only have a few parameters:
-Rory is at least 13 and is a bit of a bad ass (total opposite personality)
-Luke must be mentioned somewhere in the story
-Lorelai and Christopher must have other children (their names and ages are up to you)
Other than this the rest of the story is up to you. Happy writing!
NEW - Here is my proposal. A Fan-Fic that goes back in the past. I always wonder what life was like for Lorelai as a teen. My Challenge is for someone to write a fan-- fic that will go back in time a relive her teenage experience. Hopefully the answerer of this challenge will write a multi- part story using accurate info from what was described to us from the show. The story should end after Rory is born, and her move to stars hollow, preferable when Rory is around 7. Have fun!!

Rory's first day back to school. In her English class the teacher gives an assignment to the class. This is that they have to write at least a three-page paper on their fathers and what they mean to them. After class Rory goes up to the teacher and tells her she doesn't have a father. And the teacher tells her that she then has to do this assignment on the closest male to her old who is old enough to be her father. After school she goes to Luke's upset, he can automatically tell and makes her talk about her day at school, she then tells him of her assignment and asks him if he will let her do the paper on him. He frowns and looks up and sees Lorelai coming through the door and says yes. Rory jumps up hugs Luke and tells him that she loves him. *****Warning flags***** this takes place right after breaking up with Dean***** Leaves a half full cup of coffee sitting there. Lorelai wonders what happened. Story must end up L/L and be at least PG-13 to NC-17.

I'm dying to see a Trory version of "Cruel Intentions." It must have a happy Trory ending with a rating of PG-13 or higher. True to the movie, if you please, with only the necessary alterations.

Be sure to have tristan and his father in a fight over being king and when his father threatens to take the crown away from him tristan replies "Fine, i don't want it!!" (see the movie!)
How you incorporate anyone else into the story is up to you!!

Write a Lorelai and Luke Fan Fic.
They must be in a romantic relationship with each other.
It must be a fanfic set in the future, somewhere between 2-6 years from now.
Must include a lot of Emily and Richard, maybe a few dinners.
Rory should be in college now.
Include coffee and cigarettes
Submitted by: singer
I think this would be a great idea for a L/L fanfic. Have them be married like 2 years into the future or when Rory is away at college. Luke and Lorelai get into their first major argument and Luke leaves. Please have the topic of the argument not be something stupid. It has to be very serious. OH! Luke comes back a few hours later and apologizes. And the two of them make out... and you know. It must be a rating of PG-13 or lower. Preferably PG-13. I don't care how the two of them got together. Either Max doesn't exist or Lorelai said no and she and Luke got together. I don't care who Rory is with. She doesn't even have to be in the story.

Tristan and Rory finally realize their feelings for each other, but she won't admit it. When she finally does, Tristan goes out and buys a little tiny piano or safe and drops it on Rory's head because she would never go out with him barring a piano or a safe falling on her head.

Rory starts up at Chilton again after a summer away from all the Chilton kids. Tristin tells Rory that he is trying to get over her and he wants her to help him find someone new. Through he is hoping that Rory would fall for him in the process; he ends up falling for--I don't know. It could be a new girls at Chilton, or some random Chilton student, I don't care it's up to you. Also Rory and Dean should stay together, even though they can fight about Rory helping out Tristin. Also, Loralai can either be with Max or she can get with Luke, it doens't matter--you don't even have to include them in the story, but it would be nice. One more thing--it would be nice to include a Henry/Lane pairing in there too.

Submitted by: Diana
Hey, I've been trying to write a fic forever on them, but I keep on getting stuck. So I've decided to share the wealth and let all you other people take a look and maybe write something on it. It has occured to me we need more "passionate" smoochies, lol. anyhow I started the beginning to a fic... and need some suggestions (ok off subject) but if you'd like to help give suggestions please e-mail me so i can send it your way. anyhow, heres the challenge.Ok TWO Challenges.....
Number 1 Takes place just after Dean meets Rory. Rory's all love sick, you know after he kisses her. I figure this could be before Rory's Birthday stuff. It be pretty nice to see Dean/Tristan fighting over Rory. You know out of the blue somehow Tristan starts "really" being nice. Must have passionate smoochies! lol (damn btvs got me saying smoochies)anyhow do whatever you want with that one. The basis is around this idea, anything additional is cool. Any rating you want.
Number 2 (or 2 and 3)
Ok optional of two choices. either can take place "right" after Rory and Dean
break up, "or" a couple days l8r.... Rory didn't go to the party. Feel free to
use "both" ideas for more than one fic. Basically I've seen a lot of
Tristan/Rory based on the "kiss" thing. Nothing against it, but it's so easy!
I'm thinking she didn't go to the party....
again must have smoochies! (lol) any rating.... ( usually I write some pretty
graphic stuff, but since this is a family show, do what you want) anything
from PG to R or Nc.... blah blah....Please someone take these up.
