    Summary

    "Her heart pounds in her chest when she sees the way Ann looks up at her – like she wants her comfort—no, her approval. She aches to close the distance between them, to hold her, to make her stop shaking as much as she is. But how can she? The weight of her conscience screams at her, telling her she shouldn’t."

    The one where Anne Lister is a Psychology Professor and Anne Walker is her graduate student. It's a forbidden romance, but they just can't help themselves. Who am I kidding-- I just can't help myself. Forgive me!

    Summary

    Women's Royal Naval Service veterans Anne Lister and Ann Walker meet unexpectedly two years after the war.
    —————

    “I know we’ve met. During the war…”

    Ann knows that Lister will remember in a minute. Just for this moment, Ann is the only one with the clear memory of that sleety day, the shame, the furious tongue-lashing. And all that preceded it.

    Taking a shaky breath, Ann says, “You were my commanding officer at Scapa Flow.”

    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

    Modern AU - the one where Anne Lister & Ann Walker are both college students and neither of them are looking for anything serious. But a chance encounter leads to a random hookup, and suddenly neither Anne nor Ann can get the other off their mind. The fuckbuddies-to-falling-in-love AU that no one asked for but that I couldn't help but write. You're welcome.
