    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

    The thing about Greta Gill is that you can’t miss her. Not when she’s winking at you from far across the field, not when she’s laughing with friends while losing spectacularly at gin rummy, and definitely not when she’s trying to sneak into a memorial service after having vanished for a year.

    Summary

    Carson Shaw married her high school sweetheart and her life has been...fine. When Carson reaches her breaking point, a drunk night with her friends leads to her submitting an online appointment request for a Ms. Greta Gill. Greta is an accomplished lawyer who is also just fine, thank you very much. She has weekend flings but she isn't really a relationship person. When their two worlds collide, things get complicated.

    OR: The modern divorce lawyer AU that no one asked for but I am happy to provide.

    Title comes from "ivy" by Taylor Swift which is 100% a Gretson song and no one will be able to convince me it isn't queer as hell

    Summary

    She and Jo take the morning train. Greta was ready to run anyway, and they ended up deciding that a fresh start might be best. 

    Greta spends the rest of her pocket money on the tickets because she wants, needs Jo to come, and knows that it’s what Jo needs too, even if she doesn’t know that yet. She's looking to see the world, and she wants to see it with Jo, wants to see if there's more for them out there than Brooklyn has to offer.

    After that day, Greta doesn't stop traveling the world until Rockford- until Carson. Greta and Jo have been waiting on the world to change for a while now, and maybe, just maybe, that time has arrived.

    (Or, the places Greta has been and the place she finally settles down. A Greta character study.)

    Summary

    Carson wakes in Greta's room, in Greta's bed, wrapped up in Greta's arms and as she does she realizes the risks that Greta has been taking lately, the lingering touches, the longing, adoring looks... and everything inside her needs to find out why. Needs to ask the questions, needs to hear the answers because there are only so many weeks left in the season and she needs to know what it all means.

    Because maybe falling in love feels a little like this.

    Slipped between "I still want this" and y'know, everything else, it's just a little tiny character study that my heart needed to read so I wrote it.
