    Summary

    An on-and-off job as photographer can only pay so much, so Therese Belivet has taken a job at an elementary school's art program to help pay the bills. One of her last jobs before the school year begins is photographing a preview night of a successful play where she meets the well-known artistic director of the show, Carol Ross. She forgets about their meeting until September rolls around and she starts teaching an inquisitive young six-year old by the name of Rindy.

    Summary

    Abby had loved Carol since they were kids. Since the moment she had laid eyes on her.... Sure, things were complicated between them, but wasn't that the stuff great romances were made of?

    This is a Pre-canon fic, tracking Carol and Abby from their first meeting up through the beginning of Carol's relationship with Therese. As with my other fics, this blends elements of the novel and the movie.
    Story told from a variety of POVs, but mostly Abby and Carol.

    Summary

    Unlike the others, this one registers at a 90%, far exceeding anything else that’s shown up in her inbox thus far. This woman’s profile picture is far less suggestive than her other so-called matches, her face half-covered by the professional camera she holds in front of it. Her hair is straight and dark and sits just below her jawline, and by the lack of fine lines at her eyes and mouth as she smiles, Carol guesses she can’t be much older than twenty-five. The public side of her profile is mostly bare except for a short self-written description that’s about as cryptic as Carol’s own.

    Flung out of space.

    Summary

    The paths of two women, completely different from each other, cross. With so many things in their way, there’s still a connection that can’t be ignored that will send them in a conjoined path where not even the distance could stand in their way.


    “Things worth having don't come easy.”

    Summary

    Two pairs of eyes lock across a moonlit bookshop. The piercing gaze of a woman who wants to love, and the timid glance of a woman who wants to live.

    In which a book is vandalised, a card is bestowed, and a single unabashed wink marks the beginning of what may well be the end.

    Summary

    Britain’s Air Transport Auxiliary (ATA) has a daunting mission in 1941. The pilots must ferry thousands of new or repaired aircraft to fields all over the British Isles. The newly formed and first “all women” Ferry Pool at Hamble, near Southampton, has much to prove. They deliver scores of different types of aircraft several times a day, often in less than ideal weather conditions.

    Therese Belivet has just been assigned to Hamble. She knows no one. Fresh from training she finds herself in the deep end. The last thing she needs on her plate is to fall in love, but her striking new commander, Flight Captain Carol Aird, is a delicacy the young pilot finds hard to resist.

    Summary

    'Therese looked and saw, in the light that spilled from the house, a tear, like a shooting star, on Carol's cheek.' An album of scenes - across various locations and months and years - between Carol and Therese, rather like Therese's photo album in words. (Now incorporates two fragmented plotlines about Therese and her work and Carol and her Rindy, and how the two converge, or separate.)

    Final scene: A storm 'In New York (February 1959)'.

    Summary

    Therese is a graduate literature student about to begin her last semester seminar, in which she will finally get to meet and work with Carol Ross, the secretive author who she's idolized for years. Two nights before her last-first day of class, she takes home a mysterious blonde who manages to drive her wild without even telling her her name. When class begins, Therese finds herself looking into the same icy eyes that had stared up at her from between her thighs just a few nights ago.

     

    A.k.a, Therese accidentally has sex with her idol and then has to figure out how to sit through class with her.

    Summary

    This is the second part of VISA TO LOVE.

    "The previous months had been very challenging for both women. The gift that had been Rindy becoming part of their lives permanently hadn’t only brought so much happiness to them but also struggles and changes. One of the things that had changed the most had been morning time. Before Rindy, Carol would get up early and ready herself while Therese stayed in bed. It was a quiet time for both of them. Now with Rindy, mornings became more rushed and busy."

    Now that Therese is a legal permanent resident in the US, she’ll have to face new challenges: from family to work, she’ll have to learn how to navigate in this new chapter in her life.
