No, you don’t remember when I did that? Well, here is A STUDY IN GILMORE, all 116 pages of it.
This came about several months ago when I realized that Paris and Rory, much like Sherlock and Watson, are a prime example of what we at the Niche like to call The Dynamic. This is a far-reaching term for the specific combination of personality types that make up the greatest love stories of all time: a brainy, overbearing Absolute Nightmare and a mild-mannered, self-abnegating, and extraordinarily courageous Sweaterboy. It probably bears mentioning that “sweaterboy” is a gender neutral term; the Dynamic can be composed of any gender combination, but it’s usually gay.
I myself am not actually a fan of Sherlock – like, I’ve seen Sherlock, and I cried when John was standing at Sherlock’s grave going “don’t be dead!!!” because I’m a human being with a beating heart. But it never really stuck for me, which is probably for the best. I’m also not a fan of Gilmore Girls, because Amy Sherman-Palladino is a hate criminal. But somehow, the notion of Rory being a retired war correspondent battling PTSD and depression, and Paris being an extraordinarily intelligent and wildly misunderstood consulting detective, and the two of them getting together to solve crimes and kiss? It was too good to pass up. So I re-wrote the pilot of Sherlock to be about them.
Give it a read here. Be blessed.
