    Summary

    All Ruby had wanted was to prove she was a good enough engineer to see the stars. All Yang had wanted was to enjoy each morning having new constellations outside the window. All Weiss had wanted was to leave good marks in the few corners of the galaxy her father hadn't tainted. And all Blake had wanted was to challenge a system that oppressed her people across all the core worlds.

    When the 'Beacon' suffers a horrific enough malfunction that those aboard are forced to leap into escape pods and eject onto a world far on the edge of civilised space, the few who make it to the surface alive are faced with having to work together just to survive a wilderness they don't understand, in a forest that somehow seems haunted with every ghost they never wanted to face, but also might be hiding everything they might come to want.

    Summary

    Work as a prosecutor isn't well-paying or glamorous, but Ruby Rose is determined to fight against the horrific crimewave infecting the city of Vale with all of her intelligence and energy. Yet as she throws away small fish after small fish, the biggest target in her sights, Weiss Schnee, head of the Vale branch of the Schnee Crime Family, dances around her and eludes her grasp.
    But she's gotten close a few too many times for Weiss to be comfortable with, as the Ice Queen of Vale finds herself more and more enamoured with the thrill of being chased by the one person in the city she's willing to consider might be her equal.

    Summary

    There are three things in life that Ruby Rose knows.

    One, that she really loves running. Is addicted to the sound of wind blowing past her ears and the feeling of her legs pushing forward and up.
    Two, that she has something to prove. To the sponsors and sports officials who scrutinise her in her late mother’s shadow. To herself, who has never felt ready to match up.

    Three, that she is in love.

    Though the last one is pretty recent. And the most terrifying, to boot.
    This is how she copes.

    (There’s a happy ending, I promise.)

    Summary

    So here's the thing - Weiss loves to write song lyrics. She sings opera for a living, but her heart has always beat in time to the kickdrums of punk rock. She's desperate for a change in her monotony, and on a whim, she anonymously sends song lyrics to a band just starting to create ripples in the music industry. She sends them with the hope that they'll be ultimately drowned in the influx of the band's popularity.

    But when the band actually notices her lyrics, and the pretty lead singer calls out to her on live television - Weiss has a decision to make. Either indulge in the fame, or let it blow over.

    or, when the end of things really just sets off the starting gun. a whiterose music au.

    Summary

    But because Adora’s still going out to the villages and towns to rebuild, and Catra isn’t, sometimes she’s up early and that leaves Catra alone.

    Which she can deal with most of the time, because she’s not as dependent on Adora as she once was, back when they were kids in the Horde, but there’s just this need underneath her fur. She can’t explain it, but she just has this craving to hold Adora, and to have her pet Catra’s ears and to just cuddle together. Maybe knead Adora’s thigh a bit as well.

    She doesn’t know exactly what she wants to do, she just knows that she needs to touch and be touched by Adora.

    The problem being that Adora isn’t even in the palace, so there’s really nothing she can do but wait.

    Which is torture.

     

    (Adora is away for the day, and Catra feels needy)
