    Summary

    It’s been seven months.

    Seven months since they said “See ya next season?” and “I wouldn’t miss it for the world”, a desperate kiss and breathless sighs on the side porch of the Peaches’ home.

    or, Greta travels to meet Carson so the two of them can roadtrip to Chicago for the new season, together.

    or, yet another reunion fic no one asked for

    (I'm horrible at summaries, it's a problem, I'm working on it)

    Summary

    The Racine Belles have figured out the Peaches' hand signs. Coach Shaw has one night before their next game to come up with a new system.

    *

    Carson glanced up along the contours of her spectacular view and saw Greta looking up at the roof, like she was trying to think of something. Carson had given her the hardest job: try to remember what gestures go where, all while someone’s on a hot streak, or worse, high and outside.

    Summary

    Carson couldn’t give less of a shit about Fortnite, but she has the impression that dying on purpose would not be what Greta wants.
    As if to confirm her suspicions, Greta hooks her fingers around the hem of her pants and boxers, and begins pulling them down: “You stop playing, I stop playing.”
    Carson nods again, her eyes tearing away from the sight that Greta is like that, kneeling between her legs.

    Summary

    Greta forces herself to stand her ground, thinking idly that her unexpected lingering guest kind of reminds her of Maybelle: full of responsibility and seemingly looking for a moment away from it, unafraid, searching for a place to belong. It’s enough to give her the tiniest rush of affection. But Maybelle makes her think of Jo, and Jo makes her think of Ana, and Ana makes her think of Terri, and Terri makes her think of the church, and the convent, and Carson–

    God.

    Everything comes back to Carson.

    At this point, Greta knows she shouldn’t think of her, but it’s hard.

    (Or, Greta is now in New York for the off-season, and she's doing the whole seeing other people thing Carson joked about that night in the kitchen. It's not going well. But luckily, Carson decides to make her way to New York, to see Greta, to finally, finally make things right. It just might take a second to get there.)

    Summary

    They’re both seventeen, and they don’t own much. Just a few coins they collected doing odd jobs here and there that they keep in a bag under the floor of Greta’s room.
    “We have to go.” Jo repeats, and Greta knows she doesn’t mean ‘home’. They have to go and they have to go far.
