    Summary

    “You don’t have to pretend,” Cora says, and if it comes out a little more aggressively than she intends, she doesn’t care.

    Lydia pulls back, pen stilling. “What?”

    “You don’t have to pretend to like me just because we have to work on this project together.”

    “I’m not,” Lydia says. Her tone is neutral. She sniffs. “I don’t have an opinion of you either way.”

    Cora zeroes in on the uptick in her voice, the little tremor that gives away her lie. “Yeah, sure. I know girls like you.”
    _____

    Lydia Martin has never paid much attention to Cora Hale. That is, until Cora, rising star of the girls soccer team, quits days before regionals, killing any chance they had of winning state for the fifth season in a row, and becoming the most hated junior at Beacon Hills.

    Summary

    On the 7th of April, exactly 1 month before her brother’s wedding, Caroline hops on a plane to New York.

    It’s not that she’s not happy for him (she is) or that the maid of honour speaks to her in a painfully civil tone throughout all of the preparations (she does, and Caroline finds herself being catty on purpose just to see if she’ll snap) but because everyone seems to be going somewhere but her.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    i don't know why i'm obsessed with mean characters but alas

    i just have to say that the irony of caroline running into george all the time when combined with the trope of soulmates constantly running into each other due to fate is so funny and also really telling of caroline in a literary sense. that stuck out to me so much

    mostly i love this fic bc the amount of character growth caroline goes through without actually changing personality is incredible and i love the last conversation btwn her and darcy. i love how it sets up the idea of caroline rebuilding, and making new bridges with the bennet/darcy family

    Summary

    “Who hurt your leg, darlin’?”

    Nicole growled at him, but he only softened further. “What’re you doin’ all the way out here? Ward said he had supernatural nonsense on his property again.”

    Nicole was about the farthest thing from nonsense. She was twelve and had lots of teeth, thank you very much.
