    Summary

    Yeah, their love saved the universe, yes, the war is over and every one is alive. Yes, there's still a lot of things for them all to try and figure out.


    After that there’s no rest. Adora isn’t surprised that she doesn’t get a second to just breathe after everything. She hasn't even begun to process the Heart and everything that happened there, and she's sure she's not going to be able to for a while. The endless wave of congratulations doesn’t feel real, nothing feels real. Nothing except the weight of Catra’s hand in hers. After talking with Swift Wind she had walked back over to her...whatever they were now. The question sits heavy with so many others, but she had pushed it aside, instead taking Catra’s hand and refusing to let go. Whenever Catra tries to pull away, feign annoyance or put that mask back on, she doesn’t let her. Catra gives up after a third try, understanding dawning on her face that Adora needs her, truly needs her to get through this wholly novel experience. She’s the only thing keeping Adora on the ground. She didn’t realise how much she needed the light prick of clawtips against the back of her hand when Catra twines their fingers together properly.

    “I’m not going anywhere.”

    Summary

    Catra clenches her fists. She won’t let it happen. She won’t endanger their future. “We can’t change anything. We’ll just have to wait, and do everything the same way we did before.”

    Adora grabs Catra’s shoulders. Her grip is so tight, it’s nearly painful. “But do you realize what that means for us? Playing along. Letting things go the exact same way as before–”

    Catra’s expression darkens. “I know,” she says, struggling to keep her voice from trembling. “You’ll have to leave. We’ll have to be enemies again.”

    ***
    Years after defeating Horde Prime, Catra and Adora inexplicably wake up in the past—on the day that Adora first found the sword. If they're going to make it back to the present, they'll have to relive their past from start to finish, pretending to be enemies despite being in love. Despite being married. Despite knowing exactly how the story ends.

    But it's not easy, waging war against the person you love most.

    (now read the sequel, immemorial)!

    Summary

    After Horde Prime is defeated, there's still much left to be resolved. What to do with all his abandoned clones? What punishment does Hordak deserve for his role in Etheria's suffering? How to restore the Fright Zone to Scorpia's family and what to do with all the indoctrinated soldiers still living there? What to do about the possibility of more magic-based worlds that were converted to weapons by the First Ones - or the possibility that Horde Prime was smart enough to make a backup of his consciousness? And the most important question of all - will Catra and Adora ever be allowed some alone time to explore their newly admitted love for one another?

    COMPLETE as of 2020-09-10: Written as a sort of "Season Six", this story covers the post-war fallout, a long space adventure to find and destroy Prime's backup consciousness, a slow-burn exploration of what a Hordak redemption arc might look like, and lots and lots of Catra/Adora character study, hurt/comfort, fluff, and occasionally smut. There are some violent action scenes, but no character death.

    Summary

    They stay that way for a long time, Catra’s face tucked into Adora’s shoulder, Adora gently cradling Catra’s head. Adora is careful not to hug Catra too hard or make her feel restrained, anticipating the moment that Catra will start to pull away — but Catra doesn’t. She hangs on so tightly it hurts, her claws digging through Adora’s jacket and into her back, latching into her like she did when she was a kitten and didn’t know how much her claws could hurt. Adora tries not to wince, tries not to move a single muscle, worried that if she does the spell will break and Catra will struggle away, appalled at having shown weakness.

    But Catra doesn’t let go. And so neither does Adora.
