bow takes off his quiver and balances it neatly on the windowsill. “so, what did you want to talk to me about?”
catra glances up at him, smiling and earnest and gentle, and the words die half-formed in her throat.
(it’s not like she put particular thought into this anyway. it’s not pressing, it’s not something she would want to inconvenience people with, and if she’s being honest she’s terrified— more than terrified— of how people will react.
which is why she came to bow, who knows about This Stuff. bow, who is too sweet and gentle to judge, who will understand when she tries to explain what she can, who will smile and nod and offer to hug her when she explains that she would have left it locked up somewhere in her chest but the the feeling of wrong was too heavy to ignore—)
“it’s okay if you can’t tell me yet,” bow says kindly, softly. “being vulnerable like this is hard.”
“y— wait, like this ?”
he grins at her.
“i hate you so much.”
“just so i know we’re on the same page, we’re both talking about the trans thing, right?”
“you little shit. yes.”
or, catra has been having some gender feelings and bow talks it out with her

catra spreads himself out automatically, earning a laugh and a mental prod from melog, and runs his hand over the front of his shirt without thinking.
it feels… nice.
it’s a habit left over from months ago, from when they would wake up and be hit with such an overwhelming sense of wrong that they’d press a hand flat to their collarbone and tell themself to get fucking used to it.
and it feels - he does it again, skimming his fingers over the faint outline of the scars beneath his shirt - it feels amazing.

she pouts again. “who are you?”
i’m you, she thinks. i’m you. i’m who you’ll be after your life gets so much worse. and then so much better. i'm you. but that’s probably a bit too existential for her 3-year-old self to handle, so she just gives her a watery grin and says, “a friend.”
or, whilst exploring the crystal castle, catra runs into a hologram of her child self. this is part of a larger fic!

adora blinks, and everything is dark. blinks again, and she’s looking up at light hope.
she yelps, jumps back, because there’s nothing human in her eyes - nothing like the person she saw in the moments after she shattered in the sword, the person she knows mara loved - and then -
“oh. you’re here.”
she spins around in time to see herself - herself just after she turned 18, just after the battle of bright moon, after she and catra lost each other for the first time - walk out of the shadows. she’s forgotten just how young she was, just how young she looked - this hologram girl’s nose is less defined, face softer, rounder. she’s shorter here as well, less sure of herself, clutching the hilt of the old sword like a lifeline at her side. and adora can’t bear to look at her.
or, adora watches a hologram of herself fight a hologram of a hologram of catra. extract from a much larger fic!

in another world, adora thinks, testing the weight of the sword in her hand, maybe things could have been different.
“so we take this thing back.”
“we… hide it, maybe? Just outside the fright zone. somewhere we can go without raising suspicion.”
“you train with it. until your next mission, you train with it. and when you’re sent out, you use it. you win the battle, you’re a hero, and shadow weaver wants to know how you did it. so you hide the sword again.”
adora frowns. “why hide it again?”
catra turns to look at her, eyes dark. “so she can’t take it from you.”
or, au where adora takes the sword back to the horde, and she and catra take over the world together.

prince catra is not what glimmer was expecting.
for one thing, they’re much younger than she thought they’d be - around her age instead of the elegant 30-something prince regent she was told they were. or, at least, that’s how she thought of them in her head.
and, second: they’re attractive, and they know it.
