    Summary

    One day, two women meet on the subway. The recently dumped Lena is recovering from a broken heart, and Kara is grappling with the open-ish relationship she has with her long-distance boyfriend. They decide that they’re going to become friends. The kind of friends who also have totally casual, no-strings-attached, nobody’s-catching-feelings sex. What could go wrong?

    As Alex puts it: “Kara. This is the dumbest thing you’ve ever done. And I’m including the time that you set fire to your own hair and nearly burned the house down trying to do some spell you found on MySpace to make Troy Bolton materialize in real life and marry you.”

    Or: Lena and Kara go around New York City eating food and banging each other until their feelings eat away at them, and Alex tries not to have an aneurysm about it.

    Summary

    It's hard being a nine-foot tall Countess in rural Romania, even harder still when all there is to see is fear and the early dregs of betrayal in all who lay eyes upon her remarkable figure; they'll always despise the Dimitrescu blood-line. Let them--it means nothing what mindless cattle prattle on about in the shadows of their dirty little hovels, but, after nearly a century of living life as the perfect misanthropist, Lady Dimitrescu finds you--an unimposing little thing with an affinity for piquing a certain Matriarch's curiosity--a breath of fresh air. She's inclined to believe it's been far too long since she's stopped feeling so utterly lonely, and if you keep looking at her like that, she'll realize just how fractured her resolve truly is.

    Summary

    “Help me understand,” Kara says. “Are you saying everyone falls in love with their best friend?”

    “I’m saying that queer women have a special affinity for it,” Lena repeats, fishing the cherry out of the bottom of her drink. “The whole ‘falling for your straight best friend’ is basically a rite of passage.”

    “Says who?”

    “Everyone.” She puts the cherry in her mouth, bites it off the stem. “The L Word was like, built on the premise that a friend group of queer woman in LA dated each other in some sort of terrible repeating circle for, god, however many seasons that went on. And it’s been my experience that when two people are attracted to each other, and they’re close, feelings are likely to develop.”

    “That’s just, I mean, come on.” Kara’s cheeks are a little pink. “A trope and a tv show? That’s your evidence?”

    “So you’ve never been in love with your best friend?” Lena looks down at her empty glass.

    “No!” Kara sounds affronted. “No, I have never been in love with my best friend.”

    Or, A love story, told in three acts.
