    Summary

    I listed Carol (2015) in the fandoms, but this story is strictly a TPOS sequel. I know there are scores of them, but I have only read a couple. So, forgive me if I touch on similarities; it's inevitable.

    Like Highsmith did in The Price of Salt, this story is in third person limited. Of my ten previous Carol AUs, only one has been written from that point of view, Spitfire Dawn. It's time for another challenge.

    Summary

    Seeing Carol in her apartment was certainly different. She’d been there only a couple times - once to visit Therese and give her the camera bag, meeting Richard in the process, and the second time to help Therese with her bags for their trip. Now there Carol was, but to stay. She didn’t do as much poking and prodding as before. Her movements were timid, like last night, and she waited to move from the doorway.

    Summary

    This is a Carol/Criminal Minds crossover. I have a few of the main characters from Criminal Minds, but this will mostly be characters from Carol that are put into that universe. As it is a Criminal Minds story, there will be sexual violence, though I promise not to get too graphic with that part. So consider this a general trigger warning. You have been warned! Also, after chapter one, you will find that one of the major characters has been murdered already, so I'm sorry to her fans, but she is referenced a lot.

    Cast of Characters:

    Carol Aird- former Supervisory special agent for the BAU
    Therese Belivet- new incoming agent to the BAU
    Phil (McElroy)- supervisory special agent for the BAU- he will not be Dannie's brother
    Dannie- special agent for the BAU- he will not be Phil's brother
    Genevieve Cantrell- special agent for the BAU
    Aaron Hotchner- Unit Chief of the BAU
    Penelope Garcia- Technical Analysts of the BAU

    and I may reference other characters from Criminal Minds- but I'll explain who they are as we go.

    Summary

    The events from the book told in the tone of the film. Like most films adapted from novels, Carol (2015) left out a lot of plot and scenes from Highsmith's "The Price of Salt." This work is a collection of those original moments from the book rewritten as if they had all made it in the film. Deviates slightly from both the book and the screenplay to incorporate my thoughts in recreating these moments and the main plot. Hope you enjoy!
