    Summary

    “Mmhm.” She was suspicious, which was fair, Adora thought. It probably all seemed sketchy. “And what would you get out of this?”

    “Your company.” Catra raised an eyebrow. “I’m serious. I live a very… isolated life. It’s hard to make friends when you’re running one of the biggest companies in the country.”

    Catra opened and closed her mouth a few times, clearly stunned. Adora had to smirk a little, proud of herself for that reaction. “Here.” She pulled out her wallet, counting out a few hundred dollar bills. Three went on the table for the meal, and for the waitress, and two went to Catra, along with a business card. “Think about it. Call me if you’re interested.”

    “And if I’m not?”

    Adora shrugged, standing. “Then you just got a free meal to listen to me talk. Not a bad trade off, right?”

    She didn’t want to be too smug, but she was pretty sure she had Catra’s attention as she walked away.

    Summary

When the opportunity arises to work at the IceCube Neutrino Detector at the South Pole, she jumps at the chance, even though she’ll be stuck there for six months during the Antarctic Winter. When she arrives, she discovers that her research partner is her former roommate, former teammate, former best friend, former, well, everything, who she hasn’t seen since they graduated from college five years ago.

    Summary

    “And what are you in for?” the woman asks snidely, crossing her arms and sneering. “Frat party gone wrong? Drunk driving? No wait - embarrassing sexual escapades.” Adora’s kind of glad that whatever’s wrong with her at the moment seems to make her completely incapable of blushing.

    “I am completely yellow,” she says with a raised eyebrow. “What the hell kind of sexual escapades would turn me yellow?” the other woman snorts.

    “Embarrassing ones, obviously.” Adora rolls her eyes and there’s silence for a moment.

    “I’m Adora,” she tries. The other woman stares at her.

    “Okay. Good for you.”

    Adora's gallbladder tries its best to ruin her life, her hospital buddy is both angry and impossibly beautiful, and sometimes apples aren't just apples. Adora blames Chris Martin.

    Summary

    Her hand flew to it immediately and she could feel the slightly raised imprint of the name now on her skin, for life: the name of her soulmate. Her skin prickled over her body and a nervous cold sweat ran the length of her spine, so she took a moment to collect herself before looking down to read the name. 

    And when she did, her jaw dropped to the floor. 

    “Oh you’ve got to be fucking kidding me.”

    Summary

    It isn’t a cursive font, predictable and slightly illegible in all of its swoops, nor is it a small scribble that is difficult to read.

    It is soft and slightly bouncy, and her “e”s loop into the next letter and her “i”s have a bullet point for dots.

    It is painfully, beautifully, dangerously Adora.

    Or: Catra is Adora’s soulmate and can’t come to terms with the idea that someone so perfect is made for someone so broken.

    Or: That soulmate AU where what you write on your skin also appears on your soulmate’s. Crisis ensues.
