    Summary

    Charlotte blinks at her. The green long sleeve she’s wearing is at least two sizes too big for her and one lens of her glasses is obviously more smudged. Shona waits for anger or annoyance or something cruel to slip across her face but it doesn’t.

    “What happened?” Charlotte asks. Her fingers are cold where they slip around Shona’s wrist. She tugs once, gently, and Shona feels like something inside of her breaks. She can’t feel anything else.

    Summary

    “You’re talking about us like we were a family,” Shona says, sour. “She was my college girlfriend, it’s not - Jesus.”

    “Weren’t we?” Aine asks, small.

    or, shona and charlotte dated in college and meet again ~10 years later.

    Summary

    Blair grins at him, not breaking stride, “Aren’t you Datta’s kid?”

    “Yes,” Etienne mutters.

    “Is she dating O’Keefe or what?” Lucas asks.

    Etienne frowns, “I don’t know.”

    Summary

    “I want to have a baby,” Charlotte blurts.

    Shona looks up from her laptop and blinks, “With me?” Her glasses are her older ones, she lost her newest pair a week ago, even though Charlotte is positive they’re in a case under her bed. Her actual bed, in her own apartment, and not anywhere here in Charlotte’s even though Shona spent twenty minutes looking for them.

    “What?” Charlotte startles. Shona’s face slips into a grin and Charlotte closes her own laptop. Her legs are stretched out across Shona’s lap, Shona’s laptop over her calves. She shifts slightly and one of Shona’s hands curls over her ankle.

    Summary

    Charlotte is half-way through the bag and barely started on her first root beer when there’s the sound of splashing behind her and she turns to see someone in the water. Charlotte doesn’t recognize her but the woman grins at her, eyes shining, and hair pulled back from her face. She’s pretty, Charlotte notes, but it doesn’t matter.

    Summary

    Aine’s half dozing, her words beginning to run together, and she’s lying on her back, her eyes shut, when she says, “Why’d you do it?”

    Shona is just as awake, but she’s on her side, watching Aine try to doze off, head hazy. “Why’d I do what?”

    “You know—” Aine gestures vaguely with one hand, but doesn’t open her eyes. “Charlotte. All that.”

    “Oh.”

    Summary

    “What are we looking at?” Charlotte fake-whispers, stealing a handful of beer nuts, and popping a few into her mouth.

    Poppy seems to choose then to attempt to be subtle, leaning towards her, and grinning, “First date.”

    or, the 30 dates in 30 days au.

    Summary

    "By the time lockdown was announced, Shona had moved out of Vish’s house with its heated floors and massive garden and complete and utter isolation from the life she’d built for herself in the city. Not that she had anywhere to go back to—not when her old apartment had been snatched up as soon as she moved out. Which is how she finds herself taking Zoom call after Zoom call with panicked Trust Together clients from the one corner of Aine’s bedroom that she has tidied enough to feel okay about showing on camera. No pile-of-shit boyfriend in frame. Besides, now Shona occupies that side of the bed, so there’s a reason for the mess to be moved each night, no matter how quickly it creeps back up every morning."

    Or the post-season 2 fic where Shona moves in with Aine and Bradley for lockdown and finds her way back to Charlotte over Zoom calls and late-night texts

    Summary

    S2 canon rewrite which explores exactly what happened between the end of S1 and the beginning of S2, and reimagines Charlotte and Shona's story arc in a slightly different, more optimistic direction.

    Or: Shona loves Charlotte, and isn't a total fucking idiot about it.

    Summary

    “Vish sounded like he was giving up,” Aine says, carefully.

    “Shona took the ring off,” Charlotte says. She points towards the coffee table. Aine squints at it and sighs, “Are you okay?”

    “What are you implying?” Charlotte sighs. Her answer hasn’t changed. Nothing has changed. Charlotte doesn’t really want to be her second choice, anyway.

    “Nothing,” Aine mutters. “I don’t think you’re secretly having an affair or whatever, I would’ve noticed but -”

    "Aine."

    Summary

    The first clear thought that Richard has, when Áine tells him about her stay in rehab, in the midst of his tangled feelings of sorrow and surprise and worry, is "Well, that explains a lot, then."

    "Does it now," Áine says, her eyebrows flying up and her voice getting sharp, and that's when Richard realizes he's actually said it out loud, shit and fuck.

    Summary

    Shona lets herself sink to the bottom of the pool and then pushes off, feeling the bubbles curve around her face until she breaks out, and can breathe again. She swims lazily towards the kickboard, breaststroke because she never does it, and then starts kicking towards the other end.

    Swimming doesn’t last long. The stretch of her shoulder feels weird and she tosses the board up onto the deck the next time she’s there. She pushes off on her back, keeping her body still, until she loses her momentum. The sky is dark. There’s not many stars but she stares up anyway. She starfishes in the water, closed and then open, keeping her body stagnant in the water but moving herself.

    Shona should be tired, but she isn’t.

    Summary

    They don’t talk about it.

    Shona doesn’t bring up Vish or engagements or wedding plans. She never wears a ring when they’re together and her finger is bare the one time Charlotte accidentally runs into her at the coffee shop across the street from their building.

    Charlotte can’t bring herself to ask questions. She doesn’t know if it’s because she’s scared of the answers or if she’s scared to push her away, but Shona doesn’t say anything, so they pretend.
