    Summary

    A look into Carol and Therese's lives together post-Oak Room.

    This mostly takes place in the movie-verse, but I like to think I've taken some influences from the book, too.

    Excerpt: 'Carol Aird wasn’t the stoic, put together person she had once appeared to be. Yes, she was a force of nature to be reckoned with, and that would never change. But she had willingly shown her vulnerable side – opened the flood gates – and now Therese could see the extent of the ocean inside of her. She wanted to throw herself in, to anchor herself at the bottom and remain there forever, surrounded by her presence.'

    Summary

    A young, creatively frustrated graphic designer meets up with a beautiful bored housewife. It's lust at first sight, but love is a lot more complicated. Both have to set their emotional baggage aside to find their way to each other, but Carol's dark secret might tear them apart.

    Also, they both love animals.

    Modernish AU, told from both viewpoints

    Summary

    Therese was left once again baffled by circumstance. She couldn’t believe she was here, again. That she was looking at Carol, that Carol was looking at her. Everything was the same, only vastly, wildly different.
    ...
    A sequel to The Price of Salt following Therese and Carol as they work to patch things up between them—but trust isn’t the easiest thing to grow.
    This fic leans on both the book and the film, blending some elements of each.

    Summary

    'Therese looked and saw, in the light that spilled from the house, a tear, like a shooting star, on Carol's cheek.' An album of scenes - across various locations and months and years - between Carol and Therese, rather like Therese's photo album in words. (Now incorporates two fragmented plotlines about Therese and her work and Carol and her Rindy, and how the two converge, or separate.)

    Extra scene: A new day 'In New York (February 1959) II'.
