Reviewers: Thank you all so much for reviewing! It means so much to me!
Authors Note: Hey all! This chapter would have been out sooner I had it almost finished at school and then my computer froze so I lost the whole thing. And then I had a bit of a freak out and couldn't seem to write. But the chapter's here now and that's all that matters. Seriously this chapter should have been out either Friday or Saturday. Anyway something's been really bugging me. Didn't the people of 7th Heaven say that it was the LAST season? I mean come on they counted down to the last episode! They've been saying this is the last season all year. And now I've been hearing they signed a contract with the CW for next season! What the hell is up with that? I mean sure I'm happy that they're coming back but wasn't that false advertising? They made us believe that it was over and now they're saying its not. Its stupid, lol sorry just thought I'd rant about that... Well onto the next chapter!
Dedicated: This chapter is dedicated to my friend Ben. Hope your wrist feels better soon!

"And what exactly is it, that she's 'doing' to you?" he asked using his and Rory's famous air quotes.
"Rubbing it in my face!" Dylan said, as if it was obvious.
"She is not!" Charlie yelled, but quickly quieted down once a teacher stuck their head out of the classroom and 'shh'ed' them.
"She's not rubbing it in your face!" Charlie repeated quietly, through his teeth. "They love each other and they can't help that. I don't even know why the hell I'm arguing with you over this! It doesn't matter what the hell Rory does with Tristan now. It's none of your business!"
"Maybe not…" Dylan agreed, as he looked down at his feet. "…but it doesn't make it hurt any less."
Charlie looked at Dylan sympathetically, but then he suddenly remembered why he was there. Making a fist as tight as he possibly could he hauled off and punched Dylan square in the face.
"Ow!" Dylan screamed in pain holding his noise and wincing at the pain, bending over slightly.
"It was good seeing you again!" Charlie called out cheerfully as he skipped down the hall.
The Hayden's pulled into the Gilmore's driveway. Rory glanced around and saw two cars. One she recognized as Tristan's, and another she wasn't familiar with. She shrugged it off and just assumed it belonged to either her grandparents' or Tristan's parents. After parking the car they climbed out of the car silently. Walking up the steps of the mansion they stood in front of the door, all staring at the doorbell.
After a few minutes Lorelai spoke up. "Someone ring the doorbell! We might as well get this over with!" she said impatiently.
"Go ahead!" Chris replied glancing at Rory. "It's your parent's house."
"So!" Lorelai pouted "They're not my parents by choice!"
"You can't choose your parents!" Rory pointed out.
"Exactly!" Lorelai agreed "I have an idea! Why don't we just get out of here? I'm sure they'll never miss us with the DuGrey's here!" she said looking between her husband and daughter, her eyes pleading.
Chris snorted. "That's what you said a few years ago! Last I checked they still haven't forgiven us!" He said giving his wife a pointed look.
"Someone just ring the damn doorbell!" Rory said with a roll of her eyes.
"You're closer." Lorelai said, pushing her daughter to the door. "You ring it!"
"Fine!" Rory said with a frown. "But you owe me!" she said in a low voice, pointing at her mother, with her eyes narrowed. She turned quickly and rang the doorbell. A few seconds later the maid answered and greeted them. She quickly took their coats and ushered them into the living room.
"Lorelai!" Emily said quickly getting off the couch as they entered the room "You're late."
"Sorry mom!" Lorelai answered "We lost track of time."
Seeming to accept her answer, Emily turned around and gestured for them to follow. As they followed Rory got her first glance of Tristan. He was sitting alone on one of the couches, his parents sat across from him, and her grandparents off to the side. An empty couch sat across from Emily and Richard.
"Brian, Elizabeth." Emily said sweetly. "This is my daughter Lorelai, her husband Christopher and my granddaughter Rory."
Elizabeth nodded and smiled. "It's nice to meet you." She said in a fake tone.
Lorelai rolled her eyes, ignoring the women. "You know we've all met before mother." she said darkly "So why bother with the introductions and tell us what we're all doing here." She finished glaring at the other family.
"Lorelai!" Emily gasped "Don't be rude!" She said, embarrassed by her daughter's outburst.
Lorelai rolled her eyes and sat on the empty couch. Christopher quickly sat next to her, as Emily took her place next to Richard.
"Rory." Richard said. "Don't be shy, sit down."
Nodding Rory sat beside Tristan, who turned and grinned at her. "I never thought I'd see the day that you were shy around me Mary!" he whispered in her ears. She blushed and did not go unnoticed by the adults. They continued to watch as the teenagers settle in beside each other, completely comfortable in the other's presence.
The group sat in silence for a few minutes. Until Lorelai spoke up "So…When are you going to tell us the meaning of this meeting?" she said, looking at her parents questioningly.
"I've been wondering the same thing." Brian replied. "This dinner came as quite a shock to us."
Before Richard or Emily could reply, the maid entered. "Dinner is served, Mrs. Gilmore." she said softly.
"Thank you Rose." Emily said standing up, waving the maid off with her hand. "Come along everyone."
They all stood. Walking to the dining room silently.
"Tristan." Emily said knowingly once they entered the room. "Why don't you and Rory sit together? It'll give you two a chance to get to know each other."
"Okay, Mrs. Gilmore." Tristan replied smirking 'If only she knew how well we know each other!' he thought as he gently pulled out a chair for Rory. He gently pushed it in as she sat and took a chair to her left. Glancing around the table he saw that Emily and Richard had sat at either end of the table. Chris and his parents sat across from him. While Lorelai sat to Rory's right.
"So mother." Lorelai said as the salad was brought out. "Are you planning on telling us what is going on?"
"Later Lorelai." Emily replied, taking a bite out of her salad. "Let everyone eat before we get into all of that." She said as she smiled at her guests.
Lorelai nodded as she took a bite out of her salad as well. The tension in the room was evident as everyone sat in uncomfortable silence while eating their salads. No one dared to speak. Each one anticipating the battle that wasn't too far off. Each wondering who would deal the challenging blow.
"Ew!" Rory whined softly to Tristan as her salad was placed in front of her. "Icky green stuff!"
Tristan chuckled silently to himself. "Just eat it Mary." he replied back softly, smirking at her quickly, before turning back to his salad.
Rory nodded, took a bite, and tried not to make a face, but was unsuccessful.
Brian happened to glance over at that particular moment. "Do you not like salad?" he asked her.
Rory nodded, but didn't comment.
"That doesn't surprise me." Brian said. "A person like you has no class." He said arrogantly.
"Excuse me!" Lorelai yelled, her head jerking up. "What the hell did you just say to my daughter?" She glared at the man across from her, unable to hide the contempt she had for him.
"You heard me!" Brian yelled back, glaring at Lorelai, the same contempt mirrored on his face.
"Let the games begin!" Tristan whispered to Rory. Everyone sat in silence, salads forgotten as they watched to see who would be the victor in this battle.
Wow! That was a short crappy chapter. Sorry, I had no clue how to really write how the fighting started. It was going to start earlier but yeah. I also had no clue how to write Emily and Richard. However for the next chapter I'm going to try and really have them in character. I just need to watch some episodes and see how they talk and interact with people. The next chapter should be better. A lot of drama and a lot of yelling. This one was more so leading up to the fighting and stuff. I know that no one really talked all that much but the next one there will be a lot of it well it'll be more yelling then talking. Besides how can you write like 8 people talking equally, its just not done. Well that's it for now! Next chapter will be out soon!
Warnings: The dinner continues! This time LOTS of fighting and yelling
