Lorelai Gilmore Defense Squad

Anyone else want to join the Lorelai Gilmore Defense Squad?! Needless to say, members get limitless amounts of coffee and junk food :) Reblog or like if you still love Lorelai despite and in some ways because of her many flaws. She’s among the most vibrant, unique, memorable, resonant fictional characters I’ve ever been lucky enough to come across, and she’ll always have a special place in my heart even when she’s driving me a little bit crazy. Team Lorelai forever :)

Scene, enter major disappointment, enter the name
my mother wanted to give me but my father had his mother,
had his love picked. This is only important because a house
is not a home just because the glass case stays on.

So, there is nothing sentimental about the doll house
except that it was beautiful, except that I imagined myself
two inches small. The worst thing a girl can be is tall,
is loud, is pregnant, is happy. The worst thing a girl
can be is loved. You raise a baby and you carve out
a daughter in your image, your eyes, your bad habits,
which means this story has happened before. A house
is not a home just because you store your boxes there.

So, there is no undoing ancestry in pop-tarts, or coffee,
or an ivy league education, except that these were
the puzzle pieces I had to shave myself, except that
I imagined myself Wonder Woman, saving the day.
The worst thing a girl can be is her mother’s nightmare.
I raise a baby and I give up my heroism, my closet,
my name. This story has happened to me and I am
not ready to see it reel back again. A legacy is not
a family just because people die.

Enter the wheel that keeps spinning, enter the cycle
of unplanned motherhood and burdened motherhood
and quiet paternity. Enter the sound of one person trying
to fall asleep. Enter someone with your face with my face
with her face. Enter a child.

When she tells you that she wants to be just like you,
you’ll call it a blessing, a gift. But the glass case doll house,
the shared pop-tarts, the other side of every duality.
But it’ll be years before you recognize the prophecy.

The worst thing a girl can be is herself. Enter me.

lorelai gilmore appreciation week: favorite scene
∟lorelai’s graduation ♥  She’s graduating Thursday, and there’s going to be a ceremony and I think it would mean a lot to her if you guys were there. It may not seem like it would, but it’s true. Well, if it would mean so much to her then why didn’t she invite us herself? Because she didn’t think you’d wanna go. And I get that, but I think it’s a mistake. [….] Now, if the thought of going to Mom’s graduation upsets you or makes you unhappy or uncomfortable in any way, then, please, don’t go because this is an important night for Mom and if you go, you should go under the right circumstances.
