    Summary

    +

    "That's what friends are for," Lena says, fiddling with the black-leather choker around her neck, skin pretty and mid-winter pale underneath it like she's straight out of a jewelry spread in a high-end magazine, like she's someone that deserves her page ripped out, blown-up, framed and mounted on the living room wall.

    Then she takes a step forward and suddenly she's close-up in Kara's space, with her silky hair draped over her shoulders, and her flowery perfume and long lashes and exposed neck craned in the direction of Kara's mouth. Suddenly Lena's heart's beating so fast, so loud, that Kara feels like she has a heartbeat herself, feels like it's practically thrumming out of her chest.

    Suddenly, crap, Kara's fangs pop out, and she--god, she knows Lena knows what that means when it happens involuntarily, and she's so incredibly embarrassed about the whole thing, she thinks her stomach just might flip-flop out of her body.

     

    OR, the vampire au.

    Summary

    She doesn’t know what it is she’s looking for, in these mindscapes. It’s like a splinter, wedged into her skin. Sometimes she slips into it without an expectation or an exact thought. She lets her subconscious take her where it wills. She lets Kara exist as a guidepost, central and strong and unchanging.

    Summary

    And since Janis figures she’s already gone crazy today, she might as well finish the job, and so she edges her hand out of her jacket sleeves and flips it over, leaving her palm up and open. Her hand trembles. Regina, holding her breath, slides her hand on top of Janis’s and intertwines their fingers together.

    Summary

    Notes: You can now read this story in its entirety!

    I changed the title from "It's Traumatic" to "Enough of You in Me."

    It's inspired by the Indigo Girls' song "Dairy Queen":

    "There's just enough of you in me for me to have sympathy." (If the story was laid out in pages like a book, that lyric would be on the page prior to the first chapter.)

    Summary: Maria Hill found purpose in her dedication to her work as an agent of SHIELD (and before that, as a Marine). Driven by an intrinsic motivation to protect lives and haunted by trauma and pain, she rose through the ranks to become Fury's deputy. Until it fell on her to destroy the organization because of the Hydra infiltration she had not foreseen.

    In the year since, Maria grappled with the consequences. One night, Natasha, who has struggled since her defection to SHIELD to live with her own demons, reaches out to her, and in the relative peace after Sokovia, the two bond over a mutual and long-standing empathy as they move forward with their lives in an increasing complex world.
