    Summary

    Abby draws an intake of breath, then pauses for a moment. Riley's breathing stops. "What was the third rule?" Abby finally says, looking at her with big eyes. It might have been the first sentence Riley's heard from her without a stutter all day.

    Riley blinks. "The third rule of what?" She knows the answer, of course, but it's a little too obvious to admit that.

    "Your breakup advice."

    "Oh." Riley swallows deeply. Oh, yeah. This is happening. She can only see the honest answer going one way, but she's too tipsy to think of a convincing lie on the spot. "Get over them by getting under someone else."

    In which we discover: why Riley's last name is "Johnson", how Abby really feels about mixed drinks, and how completely oblivious two thirty-year-old lesbians can be about their feelings.

    (Ch. 8 is E, but the rest is T/soft M).

    Summary

    Abby tries to justify it to herself: she'll be lonely at home, anyway, and Sloane's right about the weather.
    She's not really thinking about those things at all.

    Or: Abby babysits the twins for Christmas, and Sloane comes home early.

    Or: everything is awful and you can blame Clea DuVall for inspiring me to new depths.

    Summary

    “I know we agreed not to talk about that Christmas but, despite the fact you were with Harper at the time, the day we were shopping I let myself wonder what it would be like to walk up Main Street like this with you. I always thought Downtown at Christmas was so romantic, but I’ve never been able to share it with anyone before.”

    Summary

    There’s a lot to be escaped here, and a lot of different ways to do it. Harper is always running from something and Abby never figures it out before the timer dings. Riley wants to give away the answers but some old wound, keeps her quiet most times. Harper throws someone into harm’s way as she escapes. Abby ends up with bloodied palms.

    Summary

    Abby’s smile comes out as the grimace it is as she mentally argues with herself if Riley should appear now or if Harper should make her escape before the other woman returns.

    Alternate summary: Three exes, two of which are now together, are in a bar. What could go wrong?

    Summary

    She doesn’t know exactly what’s going on with Harper and the woman she’s eventually introduced to as Abby. But Riley is smart, and if anyone’s an expert on this situation it might be her. There’s something a little too familiar in Harper’s eyes when she and Abby step out of the bathroom, it’s more than her normal Riley-guilt/discomfort and Riley just knows. The sick feeling in her stomach hits first and her brain follows a minute later, oh no. Harper. Not again.

    OR

    Riley watches history repeat itself.

    Summary

    All of this was to say that she felt for Harper, she did. But it didn’t excuse anything. When Harper had dropped her off at the hotel on the edge of town, she had immediately called John and talked it over with him. John was right - every story is different. But it’s not her fault if she wants someone who is on the same chapter as her. She’s not even asking for the same page - just the same general area of the book.

    Not someone who is four chapters behind the major plot twist.

     

    AU where Abby says "I'm not going" and actually means it.

    Summary

    Abby doesn’t meant to, but she holds onto each one, slides it into a previously undiscovered part of her brain that also keeps track of things like Riley’s voice makes Abby’s stomach flutter and Abby can’t think about the soft weight of Riley’s hair for more than three seconds or she’ll start thinking about Riley’s lips and that’s NOT something we can deal with right now.

    Summary

    Riley is like, exactly the kind of girl Abby would have been afraid to talk to in college - whip smart, unexpectedly funny, and just a little weird. She’s also warm, surprisingly honest and Abby can feel herself getting pulled in.
