Carlota and Cal is a The Casagrandes fanfic made by greendogtheater

Carlota suddenly finds herself as the current target of a serial predator and the worst part, he is in her mind.

This fanfic contains examples of:

  • Adult Fear: What Carlota goes through in the fanfic is enough for the adults of the family to react in complete shock.
  • And I Must Scream: As Cal sadistically lampshades, him possessing Carlota doesn't mean her full conscious is gone and there is a part of her who sees that he is about to control her into murdering her family, which is true as that part of her desperately tries to break free of Cal's possession.
  • Balloon Belly: Carlota gets this in her first dream with Cal, causing her to develop a fear of weight gain.
  • Bestiality Is Depraved: In Carlota's second nightmare, Cal pins her down and humps her backside when taking on the form of a wolf.

  • Berserk Button: As Cal ends up seeing the hard way, trying to kill Carlota's family is something she does not take lying down.
  • Big Bad: Cal Sadeler, an unrepentant serial rapist who commits suicide when he is committed to the Great Lakes City Asylum and performed voodoo that allowed his spirit to walk among the living and invade the minds of teenage girls to be his sex objects with Carlota as his current victim.
  • Counting Sheep: Carlota watches a documentary about sheep with the animals in question jumping over a fence and the narrator counts them, which induces Carlota's fatigue until she is lulled to sleep.
  • Damsel in Distress: Carlota is this throughout the whole fanfic.
  • Dark Fic: This fic goes into the touchy subject of rape and is also about the spirit of a sex-maniac invading the mind of a teenage girl. Something you would not see in the actual show.
  • Advertisement:
  • The Determinator: Cal is so devoted to his ephebophilia that he practices voodoo to do his dirty work inside the mind of teen girls.
  • Does This Remind You of Anything?: Carlota's arc of trying to rid herself of Cal is basically similar to a girl trying to get rid of a toxic boyfriend.
  • Driven to Suicide: Cal committed suicide when he was locked up in the asylum, but practiced voodoo to keep his spirit from passing on.
  • Ephebophile: Cal Sadeler is this and proud of it!
  • Exhausted Eye Bags: Due to fear of having another dream of facing Cal, Carlota tries to stay awake in the second chapter, but the resulting insomnia makes her completely exhausted. She soon gives in though, but as expected, she has another dream where Cal sexually assaults her again.
  • Forceful Kiss: Cal does this to Carlota in her final dream.
  • Hate Sink: Cal. He was written to be a despicable as possible with his non-stop raping of underage girls and nearly committing arson to Carlota's family.
  • Human Shield: Cal possess Carlota to be this when the Casagrandes try to get rid of Cal.
  • Hypno Pendulum: Dr. Clecker uses this on Carlota in the third chapter to help her get rid of Cal.
  • Hypnotize the Princess: Carlota is hypnotized on two occasions throughout the fanfic. The first is a benign example where a therapist entrances her to have courage to defeat Cal in her dreams (which fails). The second is a villainous example when Cal possesses her mind to use her as a Human Shield.
  • Implied Rape: Averted. Although the word 'rape' is never used, in one chapter is was straight-up said that Cal sexually assaults girls.
  • Lecherous Licking: Happens in Carlota's 2nd nightmare where Cal, who turned himself into a wolf, keeps licking Carlota's face and it happens as Lalo is licking her face simultaneously, thus waking her up.
  • Mind Rape: Literally; Cal rapes girls inside their mind, though him entering their minds is a form of this as well.
  • Rape Is a Special Kind of Evil: The Casagrande adults react to Cal raping Carlota in her dreams as if he killed her.
  • "Reason You Suck" Speech: Carlota delivers an epic one at Cal when she regains control of herself
  • Sequel Hook: An old associate of Cal appears at the end of the fanfic where he swears vengeance on Carlota for getting rid of him.
  • Shout-Out: The part where the small Carlota that represents the part of her that is well aware of what Cal is planning for her family while banging from the inside of the bigger, hypnotized Carlota's eye is a reference to The Graduate.
  • The Sociopath: Cal. Need I say more?
  • Teen Pregnancy: Parodied. After Cal rapes Carlota in the first dream, her Balloon Belly gets bigger before she shoots herself into the sky like a rocket while giving birth to many babies.
  • Villain Ball: Cal doesn't dispose of Rosa's latin cards as he plans on doing so after killing the Casagrandes through Carlota.
  • Villainous Breakdown: In the penultimate chapter, Carlota finds the willpower to deflect Cal's possession of her and Cal desperately tries to bring her back under his control as she reads Rosa's latin cards to get rid of his spirit once and for all.
  • Your Television Hates You: When Carlota turns on the tv i nthe second chapter, she ends up on a channel about some sheep jumping over a fence one by one with the narrator counting them. Predictably, she falls asleep.

How well does it match the trope?
