frayadjacent: Buffy smirking over Giles with quarterstaff (BtVS: Weird love)

I'm rewatching Gilmore Girls Season 1 for the first time since 2007, AKA Before I Was Fannish. It's amusing to see how my reactions have changed.

Emily and Lorelai's relationship still has my heart. Actually, pretty much everything Emily Gilmore does owns me. For those of you listening to the podcast Buffering the Vampire Slayer, you know their Cordelia song? I need one like that for Emily.

When I first watched the series (and then rewatched in order once it went off the air) I was in an intense grad school program. I identified a lot with Rory even though I was 5-10 years older than her character. I find that is much less the case now.

Oh my god, how did I not ship Lorelai/Luke before? Their Season 1 chemistry is perfect! I know I was (and will forever remain) burnt out on the multi-season will they/won't they arc, but still. Such good chemistry.

The ascerbic characters are so much more fun to me now. Paris, Michel, Mrs. Kim. And of course, Emily. Love em.

I don't think I'll actually make it through seven seasons. Right now I'm aiming to at least finish S1.

Michel was a perfect foil for the scattered Sookie and the flippant Lorelei at work. I liked his return appearance in the new miniseries.
