    Summary

    Therese Belivet flees the shadows of her youth, seeking a new life. The shifting America of 1962 is rife with opportunities for such rebirth. She's paid her dues; the hard-won Master's Degree and Teaching Credential top her resume. The twenty-two-year-old needs a chance, a break. Might a high-school English department head be her ray of light? Carol Aird of New York Public School District #3 has a discerning eye for talent and character; she seeks both at the New York State Teachers Employment Fair.

    Can a true, forever love blossom in an ordinary school setting?

    Summary

    Maybe seeing me again is as inconsequential to her as running in to an acquaintance from high school. After all, it was such a brief relationship, not even a relationship at all, just a—a thing. And when I was reckless enough to tell her that I loved her? Radio silence. No reciprocity. Over the past three years, I’ve come to the conclusion that all the intensity of emotion was one-sided, and Therese was just a straight girl who got caught up in the illicit thrill of being pursued by an older woman...

     

    This is my take on the "Therese never went to the Oak Room" prompt, but make it a modern AU. Tell me if it's working for you. I'm feeling rusty.

    Abby's 40th birthday party weekend is coming up but Carol's not too keen to show up for the festivities... She's NO DYKE after all, right? LOL. Luckily she comes up with a creative solution to fend off all unpleasant advances Abby's horny entourage might throw her way. Thank god for the all mighty Internet!
