    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

    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

    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.

    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

    Former Lovers AU (the angsty fic no one asked for) || Therese Belivet, an artist selling her works on a street in NYC, fell in love with a beautiful English expat, Carol Aird seven years ago. Therese saw her frequently and the gorgeous woman quickly became the muse of the striving artist. Carol, a lawyer, had just moved to NYC for work back then when she gradually fell in love with the younger woman. After a few years of romance, Carol needed to return to London. A long-distance love ensues but eventually falters. Therese, having suffered badly from the break up, was hung up for such a long time. Years later, she is finally getting her life back on track but in a sudden turn of events, Carol returns to her life.

    Will there still be a possibility for them to fall in love or is everything too late?
