    Summary

    Caroline and Gillian; a match made over Friday night dinners. At the end of S4 we find Caroline living in a new house, with a new job and no girlfriend. Robbie has just left Gillian to live in Canada. This fic explores how Caroline and Gillian could get together. A bit of angst, following on from where Sally Wainwright and RED left their characters, but all will be okay in the end. (p.s. They’re 48 yr old women - there will be sex. Just saying...)

    Summary

    Caroline from Last Tango in Halifax, with a splash of boldness from Catherine in Happy Valley, has a sensual night in Hebden Bridge. Getting to know you with grief and sex; how does that happen? An AU set sometime after S4 of Last Tango in Halifax when Caroline meets the mesmerising Rory, a 6’3” dark-skinned Amazon with a degree in English Literature who rebuilds narrowboats for a living. Inspired in part by “Monet Refuses the Operation” by Lisel Mueller, it is my attempt to help Caroline overcome some of her grief for Kate.

    Summary

    Sally Wainwright, in conjunction with Sarah Lancashire and Nina Sosanya (no one could have predicted that incredible chemistry), generously gave us something very beautiful in the form of the wonderful pairing of Kate and Caroline and their significance as a lesbian couple must not be underestimated because, as well as just their pure gorgeousness, they gave us visibility and recognition in a way that has never been done before. We have clung on tenaciously to Kate and Caroline through all their ups and downs, however, rightly or wrongly, Ms Wainwright has chosen to callously, cruelly and permanently rip this couple asunder leaving me, and many, many others I am sure, feeling bereft and betrayed. Harsh words I know but I can't help the way I feel. I am grieving for the loss of them but writing this story has helped me and I thought that perhaps reading it may help others in some small way. I know it won't bring Kate and Caroline back to us and I have no idea if it's going to work but one can only try. This story is not without issues but it is without the death of either of our lovely couple. I would have preferred episode 4 to go something along the lines of the following…..
