Bonus Episode: The Caroline Fandom -

Show Notes

Get ready for a whole lotta cookies!  Before we launch into season 2 of Caroline in the City, we take a flying leap into the dusty wilderness of the interwebs to explore the Caroline fandom, past and present!  Warm up the flux capacitor and journey back to the future with us to a world of cease and desist letters, arbitrary femslash, Weep Cutes, undercover strippers, and an expensive eBay item that besmirches the good names of all our heroes.  Yer a wizard, Richard!

The Fic!

In addition to the Sincere Amore website, here are the two other spots we found with Caroline in the City fanfic:

fanfiction.net's Caroline in the City archive

Archive of Our Own (AO3)'s Caroline in the City archive

The Caroline/Richard story Christie shouted out as excellent (though, be forewarned, it's fanfic, it's very well written but it's also goopy and porn-y in bits!):  "Caroline and the Impossible Decision" by Linge
