    Summary

    The age-old “Carol, but make it modern,” plot. Therese is working at the Apple store in the Meatpacking District and finds herself returning Carol’s $7,000 bracelet after helping her out at the store. As per usual, Carol gives her an unnecessary thanks by inviting her out for drinks. You know the rest.

    A little book, mostly movie. Tried to keep Therese and Carol as close to their actual characterizations as possible, minus the strange mother/child implications from the book.

    Summary

    A look into Carol and Therese's lives together post-Oak Room.

    This mostly takes place in the movie-verse, but I like to think I've taken some influences from the book, too.

    Excerpt: 'Carol Aird wasn’t the stoic, put together person she had once appeared to be. Yes, she was a force of nature to be reckoned with, and that would never change. But she had willingly shown her vulnerable side – opened the flood gates – and now Therese could see the extent of the ocean inside of her. She wanted to throw herself in, to anchor herself at the bottom and remain there forever, surrounded by her presence.'

    Summary

    “I don’t suppose you’d like to spend some time with me Sunday night,” Mrs. Aird dipped her chin, a lock of blonde hair falling out of place. “Would you?”

    “Yes,” Therese answered immediately, a rush of breath in the midst of this seduction. “Yes, I would.”

    Summary

    With half a mind still reeling from the flight, the transit and all and every other restless fit of sleep she’d managed to squeeze in-between all that hot mess, Therese strolled her way slowly towards Rue de la Bûcherie. There, she would have some catching up with the staff team working for Shakespeare and Company: an old bookstore filled day in, day out with tourists and bookworms alike – both loyal customers and the actual squirmy little creatures nestled somewhere in the oldest books they could still keep around on display.

    Summary

    Therese was left once again baffled by circumstance. She couldn’t believe she was here, again. That she was looking at Carol, that Carol was looking at her. Everything was the same, only vastly, wildly different.
    //

    Following the close of the book/film, Therese and Carol work to patch things back together between them—but trust isn’t the easiest thing to grow.
    This fic leans on both the book and the film, blending some of elements of each.

    Summary

    Post Oak-Room fic

    “Therese was seated at the table, left alone to attempt to gather her thoughts and slow her breathing before she heard footsteps approaching and she knew, she just knew who was behind her because she could smell that damn perfume. The perfume that brought back all of the memories, the lunch that made Therese love her name spoken in that exotic, low voice, the makeup, the song that she could never listen to because it brought her to tears every single time, the night they spent together that Therese had to push out of her memory because it was so wonderful and yet so tragic.”

    Because apparently I can’t write one thing at a time:)
