''Stories focused on the family and the friendly relationships of the cast. Plot-focused stories or light day-in-the-life stories. Pretty much anything that isn't focused on romance.''

* Recommended by: WarrenRugrat
* ''Status'': Complete
** ''Separation Anxiety'': Set just after the S4 finale. Rory leaves with Emily for Italy to figure herself out while Lorelai struggles with her new relationship with Luke back in Stars Hollow.
** ''Everything Old is New Again'': How do the same things happen every year in so many different ways? A year in the life of Lorelai, Luke, Rory, Emily, and Richard.
* Focus is split between the development of Luke and Lorelai's relationship, Lorelai and Rory's relationships with each other and with Emily and Richard, Emily and Richard's issues with one another, and each individual character's internal conflicts. Witty, romantic, fun, dramatic. Awesome.

* ''Status'': Complete
* Synopsis: Things in Rory's life move in circles, and she never knows where she's going to end up.
** Incredibly melancholic and poignant look into Rory's mind as she works Obama's campaign trail. Flashes back to events in the series and prior to the series to examine Rory's uncertainty about where she's been and where she's going. Simply beautiful.

* ''Status'': Dead
* Pairing: Rory/Tristen, Lorelai/Max (minor)
* Synopsis: Author's summary: When Lorelai inadvertently befriends Tristan, Rory's life becomes infinitely more complicated. Set right before Season two begins.
* Comments: A fun story that explores what would happen if Rory and Tristen were to become friends. Lorelai and Rory are completely in character and that adds a lot to the story. Rory warms up to Tristen a little too quickly but considering this is a shipping fic, it's still believable.

* ''Status'': Ongoing
* Pairing: Rory/Paris
* Synopsis: Paris outs herself and Rory during a televised argument with Michele Bachmann. Peskiest of all is the fact that Paris and Rory aren't actually dating. A documentary crew wants to make Paris And Rory's Modern Stars Hollow Family anyway. Meanwhile, Rory goes slowly and quietly nuts. (And doesn't like Paris ''like that'' -- why would you even suggest such a thing?? Not that ... anyone did.)
* Comments: Post-series story featuring boatloads of UnresolvedSexualTension and dialogue that feels brilliantly true to the source material. Amazing characterization, a hilarious (yet scarily believable) premise, and a lovely exploration of Paris and Rory's relationship.
