    Summary

    Blue had left her things. Written a note. Walked into the water and sailed away on a boat, and for all anyone knew, she had drowned herself in the waves.

    Summary

    With the scarf firmly in her grasp, she steps forward and drapes it gently over the young woman's shoulders, then ties a loose knot at her collarbone to secure it. “There you are,” Anne hums, twisting her finger around the fringe on one end of the scarf. “Good as new.”

    Tossing another "thank you" quickly over her shoulder, the beautiful stranger turns on her heels and disappears down the block, Anne's last sight of her being a rush of curls and the ripple of her scarf as it blows lightly behind her in the wind.

    Summary

    Ann observes – studies her.

    The mystery woman grabs one book from the shelf and fingers through it quickly. Even from the short distance, Ann can see her hands are strong yet feminine, a professional shade of dark red polish on her short, manicured nails. She presses one lightly against the binding as she reads – impatient yet focused – and Ann watches every tap and twitch of them as they slide along the book's spine.

    “We share a name.”

    “Do we? Well imagine that."

    Summary

    I have hoped - nay - dared to dream. Lost and wakened and then dreamed and lost again.

     

    But here she lays below her. Below her and unresisting - even with far less wooing than is common for such a seduction - far less skirting about the issue at hand before Anne Lister is allowed to skirt up the issue with her hand.

    Here is Ann Walker. Eyes bright. Lips parted. A curious girl.

    Summary

    "It’s definitely the anxiety that’s numbing her all the way to the tips of her fingers, not the ill-advised crush she’s had on professor Lister since she took an elective on queer poetry in her Sophomore year. Ann had been swept away in more ways than one."

    It's Ann Walker's senior year and she is really, desperately crushing on her professor. Guided by her best friends Catherine and Harriet, she endeavors to survive the year, although she makes it harder for herself by propositioning Anne Lister to be her thesis adviser - and she accepts.
