    Summary

    I recently started this story after resolving to myself to write more. Carol and Therese is currently my favorite love story so I decided to take a stab in this department.

    I think the reason that Patricia Highsmith was so successful at telling this love story, and later obviously Phyllis, Todd, Cate and Rooney, was because she got us invested in the characters before their major acts are committed. We love them, and we forgive them their faults by the time they make a commitment to an act.
    So, this is my first shot. There will be smut, but it will be later on, and if you've read the book or watched the movie, you'll know when. I aim to continue this after the end of the book and the movie.
    This is Carol and Co morphed into present day in NYC. Carol's occupation has yet to be revealed, and Therese is currently working at a paper and invitation store. Their meeting is chance, but their intent thereafter isn't. Please feel free to comment. This is new to me and I'm still finding my way.
    Dusky & Sweet is how Highsmith once described Carol, hence the name
