Just read the last three chapters, a lovely story. How nice to see everyone together and happy. I laughed when Rilla suggested her grandparents marry! Loved the four people waking up at the end mirroring the first chapter. Really sweet

So Mrs Blythe thinks John will go to marilla, it certainly feels like they have a connection. I'm concerned at Gill not going back to school, he needs to be a doctor!

That hug between Anne and Gill is gorgeous. That moment when you want the world to stop spinning and just stay. It's hard to let someone go through this process alone, I understand why Anne didn't want to leave Gil but it was important he had time with his mum

Interesting start. I like the way they've all woken up early for different reasons and really enjoyed how you used their waking up to introduce the characters. I like that we'll have Anne and Gilbert together very soon it will be good to see how they are together. I am worried about Mrs Blythe, and looking forward to see where you take this.

The circling back to the first chapter is very well-done. John's silent conversation with his daughter is sad and lovely, because it shows how he still remembers her even after all these years.
And story-time for Gilbert! The parallels you are drawing between the couple's stories are great, and it's touching to see father and son share some time together. Giving Gilbert the ring to present to Anne is a wonderful idea.
You let Joy live! I'm all for letting Joy live. And leave it to those children to put everything right in the end. Good things, indeed!

The box! I was so curious about it and then almost managed to forget it over the funeral and everything happening afterwards.
The way you described those photos is just lovely. I loved the little detail about Marilla being taller! And now I'm looking forward to the wedding and to seeing whether they'll get all the children they wish for or whether you're going down a different route with this.

First of all, I'm glad to hear Gilbert changed his mind in the end. He was born for doctoring and there's no changing that. Anne's supportiveness was lovely as was John's encouragement, but I enjoyed Davy most of all. All hands-on and practical, enabling both Gilbert and himself to do what they love. And it's sweet to see him get along with John.
And as for John and Marilla, you captured their shyness and hesitation just right, and I also liked how the mention of their anniversary neatly ties this into a circle.

The story about Gilbert's sister was sad and beautiful at the same time, but it makes me hope you'll let Gilbert and Anne's own Joy live? Because otherwise I might have to consider the name cursed and it is such a lovely one!
Gilbert's pain was so raw and I could really feel it. So very well done! And I liked the way we followed Marilla to the funeral. But - what' Gilbert thinking, giving up medical school?

Oh, this is sad! The pride Mrs Blythe has in her son, even at this moment, is so very beautiful in a way. Gilbert focusing on Anne in his pain and that line of wanting them to stay as they are, are absolutely heart-rendering. And the way both Marilla and John look out for their children is lovely and natural and just right!

Hey there ). I'm afraid I don't have the time and quiet to tackle your long story yet, but a little time window opened up this evening, which presented me with the opportunity to at least read this shorter one for now.
Can I say how much I love your first sentence? First sentences, lije last ones, can be so hard to get right, and yours is just pitch-perfect!
I also enjoyed Anne's impatience to get Gilbert's letter, her pain at knowing Gilbert is in pain and Marilla comforting her. Oh, and Gilbert's thoughts were very well presented, I think.. And now I'm rushing onwards to find out just what you have in store for everyone.

This was so sweet! I laughed at Rilla's two wishes. And I loved Anne and Gilbert scheming to get John and Marilla to dance, even if they did not succeed. This was fun to read — thank you for sharing it!

I like that you wrote that Marilla and John both led good lives, even though their youthful romance ended badly. That's an important thing to remember — that in all these romances and stories about people destined to be together, there is still room for second chances and happiness, even when things go wrong.

Your inclusion of Davy in this chapter was very sweet. I have been thinking a lot about what sort of relationship he might have with Gilbert, and I think yours is convincing. Davy would want to help, would want to farm, and would be an important link between these families.

Excited to see how things will go with John and Marilla . . .

Your Marilla is breaking my heart. She feels like she can't really share her emotions, not even with Anne, and that is a very difficult situation to be in. Even though I am sorry for John and Gilbert, it's really Marilla's heartache that stood out to me in this chapter. Walking behind, not feeling like she had a place — that was so sad.

And cliffhanger! I am interested to see what Gilbert's plan is.

You write tenderness very well. You have captured a bit of the beauty in the relationships between John and Mrs. Blythe, Marilla and Anne, Gilbert and Mrs. Blythe. I was particularly impressed by the moment between Marilla and Anne, with both of them feeling that they needed to hide their grief in order to support other people. That felt very true, but really heartbreaking at the same time.
