Fragile Bird by GeneHarlow reviews
Alex is everything Norma had ever wanted in a husband, so we can't she stop manipulating and antagonising him? Why can't she let go and be with him the way he wants to be with her? Trigger warning - Chap. 1 has mild references to past sexual violence. Future chapters may refer to this more implicitly. Will not be the main focus of the story though.

Whirlwind by lyn452 reviews
She was a whirlwind of a woman, a black hole that sucked everyone into her world and left a wake of destruction behind. He didn't want to be pulled in, but he knew it was probably already too late for that.

Norma Bates arrives in White Pine Bay late fall of 2003. Norman won't stop crying, and Dylan won't speak. She's doing what's best for them, like any Mother would. They're running from Arizona, running from Sam, running from everything, because Dylan has a broken nose, and no one hurts Norma's kids.

Falls the Shadow by firstwivesclub reviews
I see her outline in the window. The sheerness of the fabric creates a perfect picture, one I know I should look away from, but she's just too goddamn beautiful.

You Gotta Remember to Breathe by GeneHarlow reviews
"Everything bad that had happened to Norma Bates had happened on a bed. It made sense that she would be dying on a bed now. It had come a full circle." One shot. A re-imagined version of the ending to 4x10. Alex's CPR skills are slightly more efficient...

Two Minutes by LexiTheAmatuer reviews
While I never post my poetry about anything online, the ending of 4x09 has inspired me to write and publish this short piece. This is from Alex's point of view on the night that changed everything.

Secrets by solveariddle reviews
There are so many secrets Norma and Alex haven't told each other yet. They both have a troubled past that bleeds into their present. So when push comes to shove, they have to make a choice and the blend of anger and arousal is a dangerous starting point. / Normero one shot.

All These Things That I Have Done by PrettyinPink33 reviews
"You have no idea how much you piss me off," she says, blonde hair wild as the mind that carries it. "And you have no idea what I've done for you," he says, his voice always oh-so leveled, so emotionless. As the sheriff and the maiden stare, it's almost as if they both know everything that has happened, that is happening, that will happen between them. And maybe they do.

One More by solveariddle reviews
Deep inside he knows that her smile will get him into more trouble than anything else he has ever experienced in his entire life. His primal instinct warns him against getting closer to her.

Asphyxiation by grav3 reviews
In all of Alex Romero's life, he had never found something he could truly escape to, materialise himself into a different being, forget about the shit-show of a life he's led to this point, well, not until Norma Bates anyway.

for many nights to come by 10millionpeople reviews
"You can't, Alex, you can't keep me from it, it's too big and I feel it like a weight in my chest." You still think she's talking about Norman, about that secret, but words just keep spilling out. "I think I'm in love with you and I'm terrified."

Trick? Or Treat? by AsherahRiddle reviews
Norma Bates throws a Halloween party, and asks our favorite Sheriff to attend... a request he declines. Which is a shame, really, because she'd picked out her costume with him in mind. Thankfully, she's not afraid to sink to devious depths to get him to come anyway. A Normero one-shot, as requested by one of my readers!

My Town by The Urban Spaceman reviews
When Sheriff Romero puts four bullets in Jake Abernathy's head, he believes that's the last he'll hear of the gang of sex-slave traffickers. It's only when more strangers begin appearing in White Pine Bay that he recalls Maggie Summers' words; "Keith told me he was running the same type of thing in four different ports up and down the coast." *Story shelved as char study complete*

"She's lied and fought and killed, she's a lion in her own right, and while you may climb the mountain with her, don't ever think you're the one carrying her to the top." [Takes place shortly after the fight between Alex/Norma in 4x09; a (very) alternative ending. Romero POV. Normero one-shot. For someone. They (probably) know who they are.]
