Rating/Warning(s): Explicit; Sexual Coercion and a reference to Cecile's rape
Genre: Character Study
WIP?: No
Special Rec: 20/?

Why This Must Be Read: I appreciate stories that offer the points of view of minor characters, and this one captures both Cecile's lingering innocence as she learns and the overall tone of the film. At the same time, since we know the whole story, we're aware just how intricate and large the web she's caught in is and what's at stake for other characters.

**May I have ship tags for both Cecile de Volanges/Vicomte de Valmont and Cecelie de Volanges/The Chevalier Danceny please? Thank you!**
