beneath your beautiful: charity/vanessa
Title: beneath your beautiful
Fandom: Emmerdale (I KNOW, right?)
Rating: NC-17 (if you squint a bit)
Synopsis: So I got sucked into Charity and Vanessa on Emmerdale because Charity is and always has been amazing, and @thegirl20 is an enabler. I have no idea whether this is even remotely accurate but I just wanted to write something. So here it is. Thoughts. Stuff.
Half the time, Charity doesn’t really mean the things she says. Some of the time, she even regrets them. She sharpens her edges with cruelty and an attitude she’s perfected over years of disappointment. Now it’s so finely honed, it’s almost involuntary. It feels like self-harm, the way she keeps cutting herself on a blade of words but she can’t stop. People expect it now - she slices through all their crap with a sting of truth. She knows they probably hate her.
