    Summary

    Something was changing. It was subtle, like the seasons or the tides, ebbing and changing so gradually that it was hard to tell that anything had changed at all until you were completely surrounded by it. There were signs though, that indicated that something was happening. Like the first warm breeze of spring after days of unending cold, there were moments that Anne could simply not deny that something was happening between her and Gilbert, that the ice was melting around their simple friendship and blossoming into something more.

    Summary

    When Anne's taken in by the Cuthbert siblings after years bouncing around the foster care system, she's got a lot to deal with: a new living situation, a new town, new friends, a new school...

    Having to hide the superpowers she got from her trigger event a year ago doesn't help matters one bit.

    Summary

    Using chapter 2 of Inflection Points (3x04: In Which Gilbert Glimpses the Future) as a jumping-off point, after a heart-to-heart with Bash, Gilbert comes to his senses rather sooner and decides to take a chance.

    Summary

    Chapter 13 (Epilogue) is up and that's it for this story! The chapter is literally nothing but them adoring each other and ripping off clothes, so now you've been forewarned. :)

    What if Anne got mad at Gilbert about his confession at the ruins?

    I've always thought it a bit weird that Anne was never really upset with Gilbert about the way he confessed and handled things in S3. Given their history, I think it would have been equally plausible for her to think that she deserved better than that confession.

    This is a bit of an experiment because I'm curious about how it would go if Gilbert got called out on an epic fuck-up and had to try to come back from it.

    I promise to make it fluffy eventually but I want to watch Gilbert grovel?

    ETA - Major props and thanks to jacksparrow589 for ideas (and excellent writing on their own works!) (#letthemdealwiththeirshit2020, indeed) and thank you commenters - you're so kind and you give me great food for thought. Anyone else who wants to give thoughts about season 3 can dm on Tumblr at practicallyasleep.
