    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

    A soulmate is a bond that two people have that can never be broken. It’s a love and a trust that will remain with them forever. Carol and Therese’s romance had started centuries ago, giving them all they could ever ask for; until a tragedy came to knock at their door, changing their lives forever. What does it takes to push a person over the edge? To make them choose that kind of life on their own? How far would someone will willing to go for love and revenge?

    They say that the loveliest angels make the cruelest demons. And my darling, you were so kind and beautiful before they dragged you to hell. Your fall was not an accident. You were chosen for the damned. ─ C.K.

    When is a monster not a monster? Oh, when you love it. ─ Caitlyn Siehl.

    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

    This is something I thought of. What Carol's reaction could have been when she first met Therese. I had fun creating. I hope you like it! I have changed this from a one shot, to a multi-chapter story. I struggled with what to call it, so just decided to keep it simple.
