“Wake up, cupcake.”

Laura tries to open her eyes and fails, “What’s wrong?”

“It’s midnight.”

“Thanks for sharing. Now go back to bed,” Laura yawns and smashes her face back into Carmilla’s collarbone, adjusting herself so she’s wrapped a bit tighter around Carmilla’s body.

Carmilla almost laughs, “Laura, come on.”

Laura blows out a sigh against her skin. It tickles in the best possible way, “Carm, please. I’m tired.”

“You’re also sixteen.”

“Huh?”

Carmilla rolls her eyes, “It’s midnight. Happy Birthday, cutie.”

Carmilla and Laura’s Love Story

What I think is so tragic about Laura and Carmilla’s love story is how it’s so different from all the other supernatural/human love stories. It’s not a story about two different beings, shunned by the world and running away. It’s not about two people that can’t be together because of others. 

Their story is so tragic because the flaws lie deeply within themselves. Nothing’s stopping them from being together but the very cores of who they are and that, is what is so sad. You can see how clearly Carmilla understands Laura in this episode; her years of wisdom really shining, yet Laura still isn’t able to understand Carmilla. 

Their story is about two people learning to understand different perspectives and having to sacrifice themselves to make it work for each other. That type of dynamic is so real and apparent in our everyday lives, which makes it so different from all of the other human/non-human love stories we know.
