Jess never went to Stars Hollow, continuing down a bad path living in New York, eventually getting punished with community service, where he happens to bump into a certain Gilmore fresh from her yacht-stealing escapades. Lit. Set around 6x03 and onwards.
**This is basically an AU where Jess and Rory never met prior to season 6, and only now meet during Rory’s community service hours. It’s a really amazing read, and it fits perfectly into the timeline of Rory’s current life after quitting Yale.
