Why This Must Be Read: Green Gables Fables is a delightful webseries centering around a modern day Anne Shirley. The videos, around 50 across a few channels, are delightfully low-budget but well thought-out, and the transmedia (compiled on the series’s website) is an experience in itself. In this canon AU, Anne and Gil decide to start fake-dating to get their shipper friends off their backs.
This is one of those fics that’s completely chaste (wait, come back!) but incredibly hot. Check out this scene, from a fake-date in the library
Gilbert opens his mouth to suggest that they do nothing when, out of nowhere, Anne hooks her right ankle around his left one and his mind goes blank. Anne Shirley is touching him and Gilbert kind of maybe possibly can’t breathe.
Amazing, right? This fic is also wonderfully funny, incorporating twitter as their friends watch them fake date.
@josieberrypie: i would carry you over fire and water for your love
@AnneWith_An_E: @josieberrypie That’s pretty! Is it from a poem?
@josieberrypie: @AnneWith_An_E omg no its a 1d song
It’s (to date) the longest fic in a tiny fandom, but both the fic (and the webseries) are a great use of your time.
