    Summary

    It has been a few months since the mess that was Paris Fashion Week. Andy has taken her new job at the NY Mirror, but she still thinks back to her Runway days (and especially a certain someone she left behind) frequently.

    Emily, Serena and Nigel think they must do something about the ever foul mood of their Editor-In-Chief. Along the way, Emily finds that maybe, she wants more than friendship from Serena.

    Summary

    One day, two women meet on the subway. The recently dumped Lena is recovering from a broken heart, and Kara is grappling with the open-ish relationship she has with her long-distance boyfriend. They decide that they’re going to become friends. The kind of friends who also have totally casual, no-strings-attached, nobody’s-catching-feelings sex. What could go wrong?

    As Alex puts it: “Kara. This is the dumbest thing you’ve ever done. And I’m including the time that you set fire to your own hair and nearly burned the house down trying to do some spell you found on MySpace to make Troy Bolton materialize in real life and marry you.”

    Or: Lena and Kara go around New York City eating food and banging each other until their feelings eat away at them, and Alex tries not to have an aneurysm about it.

    Summary

    “Help me understand,” Kara says. “Are you saying everyone falls in love with their best friend?”

    “I’m saying that queer women have a special affinity for it,” Lena repeats, fishing the cherry out of the bottom of her drink. “The whole ‘falling for your straight best friend’ is basically a rite of passage.”

    “Says who?”

    “Everyone.” She puts the cherry in her mouth, bites it off the stem. “The L Word was like, built on the premise that a friend group of queer woman in LA dated each other in some sort of terrible repeating circle for, god, however many seasons that went on. And it’s been my experience that when two people are attracted to each other, and they’re close, feelings are likely to develop.”

    “That’s just, I mean, come on.” Kara’s cheeks are a little pink. “A trope and a tv show? That’s your evidence?”

    “So you’ve never been in love with your best friend?” Lena looks down at her empty glass.

    “No!” Kara sounds affronted. “No, I have never been in love with my best friend.”

    Or, A love story, told in three acts.

    Summary

    Carol has little use for Valentine’s Day. She and Therese both have to work today, and they agreed a week ago not to make a fuss about it, not to make plans. Carol rolls over, toward Therese’s side of the bed—and stops. There is a flower resting on the pillow.

     

    This was supposed to go up yesterday, but it just wasn't finished in time. I realize that Valentine's Day is a monstrosity of capitalism and has very negative connotations for some of us, but the thought of two women celebrating it in the 1950s feels very subversive and beautiful to me. I hope you like it!
