    Summary

    In 1640, two years before the English Civil War breaks out, life in England is characterized by political unrest. Charles I has been reigning without a parliament for more than 10 years, much to the dismay of England’s people. However, after several riots in Scotland, he needs money and hopes to get it by reinstating a parliament. Its members, on the other hand, intend to force him to make concessions, especially tax cuts. One of these politicians is Harold Aird, Earl of Essex, who is quite critical of the King’s political decisions. In order to discuss England’s future, he invites all soon-to-be members of the House of Lords to his house, and he engages the well-known painter Theodore Belivet to make a portrait of his wife Carolyn for the special event.

    [Childhood Friendship AU] A series of moments in Carol and Therese’s lives, that intertwined since they were very young. Their friendship strengthening over the years after everything they go through. Bond that, unavoidably, turns into love as they grow.

    “Well, it seems to me that the best relationships - the ones that last - are frequently the ones that are rooted in friendship. You know, one day you look at the person and you see something more than you did the night before. Like a switch has been flicked somewhere. And the person who was just a friend is ... suddenly the only person you can ever imagine yourself with.” ─ The X-Files.

    Summary

    AU: Set in modern NYC.

    Therese is not the kind of girl that brings someone back for a one night stand – that is, until she meets a sexy stranger whose shiny blonde hair and piercing blue eyes catches more than her eye. A story charged with lust and passion that struggles with painful realities and indecision. Will our lovers survive the emotional turmoil that they try so desperately to keep hidden?

    A lot of smut, some angst and maybe … possibly ... love at the end?

    Summary

    Hello, this is my very first fanfic. It is in continuation of the movie, and starts off with Therese at Phil and Dannie's party. I have read so many wonderful fanfics over the last few weeks, and thought I would give it a try. I am not the best writer, but really had fun developing this first chapter. I hope to continue with this story as long as I can. I welcome any advice and feedback as well as I continue to build this story.
    Thank you so much for reading!
    Enjoy!

    The thick grey smoke filled the apartment, filling her throat, clawing at her eyes. It burned her skin as she got increasingly hot.

    I have to get her out of here…

    Summary

    This posting starts a multiple chapter story of Carol and Therese's lives together after six years. They are still living in New York City in their Madison Avenue apartment. As you can tell by this first chapter, our heroines are still very much in love. I envision a number of interesting twists and turns, plus references to history of the LGBT rights movement as this point in time. I have tried to be accurate with publications as well. The ones cited in this chapter are real.
