    Summary

    “Help me understand,” Kara says. “Are you saying everyone falls in love with their best friend?”

    “I’m saying that queer women have a special affinity for it,” Lena repeats, fishing the cherry out of the bottom of her drink. “The whole ‘falling for your straight best friend’ is basically a rite of passage.”

    “Says who?”

    “Everyone.” She puts the cherry in her mouth, bites it off the stem. “The L Word was like, built on the premise that a friend group of queer woman in LA dated each other in some sort of terrible repeating circle for, god, however many seasons that went on. And it’s been my experience that when two people are attracted to each other, and they’re close, feelings are likely to develop.”

    “That’s just, I mean, come on.” Kara’s cheeks are a little pink. “A trope and a tv show? That’s your evidence?”

    “So you’ve never been in love with your best friend?” Lena looks down at her empty glass.

    “No!” Kara sounds affronted. “No, I have never been in love with my best friend.”

    Or, A love story, told in three acts.

    Summary

    It took Kara two weeks — exactly 14 days after they met, full of shared laughter and smiles and more memes than Lena had ever received from someone, before Kara asked Lena out on a date.

    Summary

    There are a few things Yang knows for sure: nothing beats a fresh snowfall; all skiers are total nerds; her sister has never done anything wrong in her entire life; and every single time Blake Belladonna smiles at her, she feels like she’s at the top of her favorite slope, heart in her throat, board hanging over the edge. (She also knows that, someday soon, she’s going to have to do something about that last one.)

    Summary

    AU: Blake Belladonna was bad luck. At least, this was Adam’s excuse when their crops began to fail. She was a curse, he liked to say. She began to dread each moment spent alone with him, and how quickly his eyes would flash with anger. Blake wasn’t a superstitious woman, but after a while, it was hard not to feel like she was cursed. Maybe he had a point.

    But curses weren’t the only superstition in their village. One night, Blake heard a sweet song echoing through the valley. Blake had never heard of a banshee before, but she couldn’t believe that such a beautiful song could be an omen of death. There had to be more to it than that. So it was refreshing, to meet someone who agreed with her.

    “You know,” Yang remarked, tilting her head thoughtfully. “You almost make me want to sing.”

    Summary

    In another life, Beacon never falls and Blake is a little less haunted.

    She doesn't even know when it starts, to be honest; the attraction seems to always just be there, like a possession she's owned forever with a long-faded label, the maker's mark now washed out and forgotten. Let me take you out, Yang says with a smile. Another day and it's Blake, fingers knotted in Yang's hair, sighing against her mouth.

    Sun never stood a chance, and the thought doesn't bother him at all.
