    Summary

    As the deeply closeted daughter of firebrand Republican state senator Titus Woods, Lexa kept her sexuality hidden so as not to jeopardise his re-election chances. Under duress from her ruthlessly ambitious stepmother, Nia, Lexa has followed him dutifully on the campaign trail with stoic endurance so far, until one fateful day she has a run-in with a feisty blonde activist fiercely protesting Titus’s abysmal voting record on LGBTQ+ rights.

    When their eyes meet across the divide, it’s the shock to the system Lexa needs to finally take control of her own destiny.

    Or:

    The one where Lexa is a moderate Republican and Clarke is the liberal activist who challenges her views through political discourse and sex (so much sex). And together, they conspire to oust Titus Woods from office.

    Summary

    Starlight and star-crossed
    Take me so breathless
    We could be reckless
    Honey, let's get married
    - Let's Get Married, Bleachers

    In the midst of a pandemic and under an increasingly oppressive government, Clarke feels like her life is crumbling. Her only escape is online, where she met Lexa, a fellow fan of her favorite show. Their friendship has grown beyond that, and Clarke doesn't quite know what to do with Lexa's concern about her, or the feelings Clarke is developing.

    When Lexa proposes a possible solution, an escape from the life - and country - where Clarke struggles to imagine a future, she has a big decision to make.

    Summary

    There's something about Lexa Woods, the enigmatic, charismatic founder of the Coalition Group, that makes her difficult to resist. She's powerful, confident - and the sex is phenomenal. But when Lexa violates one of the very specific terms of their arrangement, Clarke needs to come up with a new set of rules for herself: ones meant to help her get over Lexa.

    But as we all know, if she's under her, she's not getting over her.

    A Modern AU for Clexa Week 2021.

    Summary

    “About that,” Vi says. “How’d you end up here? What did a girl like you do to get tossed into this two-star shithole?”

     

    “Really? That’s how you ask? No subtlety in it?”

     

    “Uh, yeah? I saved you from getting shanked in the shower, so fair’s fair. What’s your deal, topside?”

     

    “Caitlyn,” she says. That isn’t right. That wasn’t the answer Vi was after. Names are easily given away but so seldomly remembered in Stillwater, but it echoes in Vi’s head. She almost doesn’t hear the actual answer. “And though I have no doubt a thousand people have given this answer before, I did nothing. I was doing my job, and then I was here. No trial. No sentencing. No crime to speak of.”

    Half a decade into Vi's stay in Stillwater, a topsider turns up, raving about being a Councillor's daughter.
