    Summary

    Beyond the reach of time and space and even sense, she repeated his name now; a mournful mantra to her missed hopes. Gilbert… all began and ended with him...

    My fond addition to the oft-mined time at the end of Anne of the Island; what happened in the long weeks between Anne's 'Book of Revelation' and 'When Love Takes up the Glass of Time'? What happens when love and potential loss are realised in the same moment?

    This is a canon-compliant story hoping to fill in some gaps and explore paths not taken by LMM, from the time Anne and Gilbert reconnect through to their marriage. It stands separate to my other one-shots but can certainly be read alongside them. I love Anne of the Island and Anne's House of Dreams, and hope this does them justice.

    Summary

    “Miss Cuthbert, please, I need to talk to Anne.”
    Marilla did something she never thought she’d do to a Blythe: she closed ranks. “I’m not sure that’s what Anne needs or wants right now.”
    Gilbert knew that Marilla must have heard what he had been off to do. “Please! I just… need to apologize. To set things straight.”
    He’d grown so much in the last few years, but right now, Gilbert Blythe was every inch a confused and desperate teenager. Perhaps not quite a child, but certainly not the confident young man he often carried himself as. Which meant… “You didn’t propose, did you?”

    -----

    Post 3x09. Gilbert comes back from Charlottetown and seeks to make amends with Anne.

    Summary

    Gilberts eyes never left hers. She found she couldn’t look away. He looked so pained, so troubled that all she wanted was to reach for him and comfort him.

    But all she could do was stare as an uneasy feeling washed over her. Slowly, she stepped around Cole, whispering softly.

    “Gilbert, what is it?”

    “Anne... Anne I’m so sorry...” he whispered. Tears started to fall down his face. “Matthew h-he...”

    Anne’s hand flew to her stomach as it dropped.
    -

    When Matthew Cuthbert dies of a sudden heart attack, Gilbert drops his new life in Charlottetown to be there for Anne, and learns a lesson in pretending.

    Summary

    (Anne remembers fourth year as a sweet turning point, an act of peace between them, when their rivalry became much more mutually beneficial. They spent their days in the library, coordinating their attempts to sneak into the restricted section, keeping teachers behind after class and quizzing each other on top of the astronomy tower. Sixth year came with the promotion to Prefect, and the joy of being Head Girl with him as her Head Boy turned to ash when the war came.)

    Or; Hogwarts Professor-and-Healer au.

    Summary

    Anne Shirley had it all planned out. She would stay at Green Gables and teach at Carmody. Avonlea would have been nice but it was promised to Gilbert Blythe. He too was staying home for two years. Perhaps it would be nice to have a friend on the same path...

    A little divergence into "what-if" ... What if Avonlea had refused Gilbert's request and Anne had taught at Carmody instead?

    Summary

    From a young age Anne Shirley was capable of doing strange things. It isn't until the equally strange Cuthberts arrive at her asylum that she understands why.
    Anne Shirley is a witch, and when the Cuthberts offer her a chance to study at a place called Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, how could she ever turn them down? But being a witch isn't always as wonderful as Anne originally thought. It seems no matter where Anne goes, trouble seems to follow her, and, unfortunately, the Wizarding World is no exception.

    Summary

    Anne Shirley Cuthbert has made many a mistake in her life, and she's not even been counting.

    Seemingly incapable of doing anything right at any given time, Anne's actually beginning to think life just has it out for her.

    In fact, she'd even concede that everything in her life has been one mistake after another.

    But maybe - just maybe - meeting Gilbert Blythe wasn't the mistake she thought it was.
