    Summary

    “I said goodnight, Carmilla,” she manages as her ears strain to sense where Carmilla is in the room, because she’s not going to turn and face her, no siree.

    “I’m sorry,” Carmilla replies, not sounding sorry at all, “I didn’t realize that was a binding contract. Should I come back at sunrise?”

    Summary

    She heard the strain of the string being pulled back and the tense inhale and exhale as one of the Baron’s juiced-up warriors prepared to let the arrow fly, and she only turned around to show them her best bloodstained smile. But even from a distance she could see the crazed look in Danny’s eyes, and the way her fingers were trembling around the arrow’s nock, and she spent one too many microseconds thinking about that rather than about getting the hell out of the way.

    And now there’s a sharp pain in her chest that for once has nothing to do with Laura Hollis, and she would be annoyed at her own idiocy were she not so busy falling to her knees.

    Summary

    She’s about to dare herself to find the hem of Carmilla’s shirt when the hands on her hips lift back to her jaw to gently separate their mouths. Carmilla’s eyes are searching hers now and the playfulness of the last several minutes is gone, and Laura’s breath catches in her throat. “What’s wrong?”

    “Laura,” she says softly, swiping the pad of her thumb along Laura’s cheek, “you’re crying.”

    Summary

    Danny almost looks taken aback as she frowns a little and tightens her camo jacket around her chest. “Man, you just get OFF on being the resident enigma, don’t you?”

    “What I get OFF on,” Carmilla retorts as sweetly as possible, “is you minding your own damn business like Laura told you to.”

    “Okay, first of all?” Danny begins, holding up her index finger and taking a step forward, “She told me to give her space, not look the other way. And are we really gonna talk about my weeks-old mess instead of why she’s apparently banished you from the premises? Seriously,” she continues, “enlighten me. What could you, Count Seduction Eyes, POSSIBLY have done to incur the genuine wrath of Laura Hollis?”

    Summary

    “Laura.”

    The voice is breathless and tight and definitely not coming from her computer speakers, and she doesn’t notice the angry tears in her own eyes until she looks at Carmilla standing in the bathroom doorway and only sees a vague, dark blur.

    “What did you do?” she demands, the words quiet and hard and trembling.

    “Forget to delete that footage, apparently,” Carmilla mutters, and she probably intends it to be a joke, but her tone is dull and tired.

    Summary

    She tries not to frown into her pillow, or to drift so far from her usual drowsiness as she puts just a little more effort than usual into tracking Laura’s movements around the room, but by the time the clock tower across campus signals the hour and Laura still hasn’t opened one of her breakfast pastries, Carmillla’s about ready to assume her roommate’s been pod-peopled somehow.

    What she’s entirely NOT ready for, however, is a sudden presence above her followed by a tiny dip in the mattress, and she opens one eye to find Laura lying flat on her back between Carmilla and the wall, staring up at the ceiling.

    Carmilla blinks a few times, then arches an eyebrow. “Can I help you?”

    Summary

    Carmilla rises to her knees now, then gently squeezes Laura’s shoulder and brushes her hair out of her face. “Laura, cupcake. You’re having a nightmare. Hey,” she whispers one last time, and Laura finally jerks awake; her gasp is violent and breathless and her fingers are tangled with Carmilla’s before she can even blink, and she’s far from pleased with the tremors she feels against her palm. “Hey, shhhhhh,” she murmurs as she brushes her thumb back and forth against Laura’s, then clenches her jaw. “Did you see her again?”

    Laura’s bottom lip is quivering as she shakes her head and presses her free hand over her eyes.

    Carmilla frowns and studies her carefully. “What was it?”

    Summary

    “Y’know, this isn’t quite as fun without Kitty here to protect you.” He pulls you against his chest like he did last night, except this time he’s not as gentle with your arms, and you grimace at the burning in your shoulder. “Then again, she’s kind of lost her playfulness over the years. Isn’t it so funny,” he murmurs, and you can feel his hot breath on your neck, “how she refused to let me have a little nibble?”

    Will comes back for round two. Set after episode 24. Title from "You Were a Kindness" by The National, which is my Carmilla-song-to-end-all-Carmilla-songs.

    Summary

    Laura eyes the medical supplies laid out in front of her keyboard, and it’s only once she decides there’s no easy way Carmilla could kill her with a few bandages that she turns her chair toward Carmilla’s waiting hands.

    Carmilla wastes no time before gently moving Laura’s ponytail out of the way—Laura shivers a little, because the last time Carmilla did this, there was champagne involved—then leaning forward and dabbing the cotton against Laura’s puncture wounds.

    The liquid is cold and Carmilla’s teeth are right there and the hot breath on her cheek is kind of making it hard to suck in her own oxygen, but the touches against her neck are so careful and precise, and she’s just very… confused.

    “What are you—?”

    “Stop talking,” Carmilla murmurs and continues her work without batting an eyelash.

    Summary

    “Are you…?” she begins quietly, and the tendons in Carmilla’s neck are taut. “Is it the storm?”

    Carmilla doesn’t open her eyes. “I spent seventy years trapped beneath the earth with the sounds of war as my only company. I’m now bound to a desk chair as profoundly violent explosions roar through the sky.” She swallows and finally looks at Laura. “So yes, it’s the storm.”

    Summary

    Laura’s been sitting on Carmilla’s bed staring thoughtfully into space since she told her the truth about Mama fifty-seven seconds ago, and despite her exhaustion due both to this week’s less-than-ideal diet and today’s surprisingly draining revelations, she still manages to arch an eyebrow.

    “Do you need a glass of water?” she murmurs with faux-concern. “I’d get you one, but I’ve recently been rendered indefinitely immobile by an overzealous child whose weapon of choice comes from the Pampered Chef.”

    That makes Laura blink and furrow her brow a little, and then she’s up and walking around Carmilla. “Hold still."

    Summary

    “There is one other option,” Carmilla says, her voice a bit lower and smoother than it’s been, and Laura swallows. “One that wouldn’t require me to leave the room.”

    “And, um, what would that be?” Laura asks too tightly.

    “I think you already know the answer to that.”

    (In which the blood stash runs out and a new option is evaluated. Three chapters, structured to represent episodes 20, 21, and 22. Title from "400 Lux" by Lorde.)
