I disagree. I think if she’d gotten super famous it would have been completely unrealistic. The way it turned out is probably how it would be in real life.

They didn’t have to show her getting instantly famous but it still could have ended with her playing with her band, rather than Zach getting the glory.  It’s also not terribly realistic that Jess became a published author so quickly but it’s a satisfying ending.  It just seems incredibly insulting me to that Lane longs to leave Stars Hollow her whole life and then gets married and pregnant after barely enjoying adulthood and then is so happy about it.  Not that those things can’t make you happy but I don’t think Lane would be at first and I can’t stand how women’s story arcs end like this on shows and men’s never do.  To me it’s the equivalent of Jess getting a short story published in the Stars Hollow Gazette and then giving up trying to get anything published to enjoy being a father with Rory.  Part of the message of the show is hope for the next generation, Lane’s early life mirrors Lorelai’s in some ways but eventually they ended almost identically. It didn’t seem fair to me that Rory was able to realise all her dreams and Lane’s ended.  Yes, they could happen in the future but the viewer doesn’t see it.  I wrote a long post on this a while ago.  

So much this! I certainly don’t think her (or the band) becoming “super famous” would be remotely realistic but I mean they’re actually pretty good, especially since Gil joined and I think the twins thing was especially out of the blue and unrealistic (I’m kind of indifferent about the marriage). Maybe they could’ve gone on another tour, or scraped together money to put out a single or album which wouldn’t do fantastic by any means but would be satisfying to watch Lane achieving a small piece of her dream in a similar way to seeing Lorelai opening her own inn.
I just feel like Rory got all these opportunities by luck, or chance, or knowing the right people (Logan, etc.) and had every door opened to her by the end even when she messed up big. Then there’s Lane, who waited so long for her chance at living life her way and gets cut off barely getting a taste of adulthood. I know some people say it’s realistic that Lane didn’t get to live out her dream life but to me having her get pregnant and basically give up all her dreams was just bad storytelling. There was nothing realistic about Rory’s life in season 7 either.

If you guys want to do the “make me choose” thing, give me two characters/ships and I’ll make a graphic for my favorite…just please don’t ask Rory/Jess or Luke/Lorelai because if you do I’d end up writing a really long rant about how I could genuinely never choose between them.

Also if you want to be more creative than a lot of the ones that have already been asked (like Logan or Jess, Lane or Paris, Rory or Lorelai) that might make it more fun. Just drop me an ask or answer in this post. ?

the-lovely-evil asked: jess mariano or logan huntzberger
