    Summary

    Catra remembers her own sleepless nights and violent rages—the scratches she gouged in Adora’s bedding, the shriek of claws against metal as she defaced the silly sketch they had drawn together. She remembers lying awake for hours each night, unacknowledged tears leaking from her eyes as Adora’s scent slowly faded from her life. She takes a deep breath, filling herself up to banish the memories. Adora loves her. Adora stayed.

    ---

    In the aftermath of Horde Prime's demise, Catra struggles to integrate into Etherian society as she and Adora explore their newfound relationship. Featuring major cuddles, minor angst, therapy, a surprise character development for Catra, and sweetly awkward fumblings toward physical intimacy. This fic also includes a few minor references to @Annacharlier's "Don't Go," which is canon as far as we all know, and to Noelle and Molly's amazing #BLM livestream. <3

    Summary

    Perfuma laughs indulgently. "I don't think little Frosta is quite ready for the task, but you'll be in good hands Catra’s great at what she does."

    Adora nods, half paying attention as she finishes put the final lines of her health form. "Yeah, I'm sure." She mumbles absentmindedly. Just as she's about to return to her seat she hears someone clear their throat.

    "Adora?" The woman calls out.

    Adora just about drops the clipboard. The woman is gorgeous, all tan skin and dark freckles, hips canted to the side as she puts a hand on her waist.

    The woman gives her a questioning look, her cute nose slightly upturned as she looks Adora up and down. "You are Adora right?"

    Adora snaps out of it. "Yes! Right! Adora! That's me." Her voice pitching high as she puts the clipboard on Perfuma’s desk. She ignores Perfuma’s giggles.

    "Alright 'that's me, Adora' my name’s Catra. Let’s get you some x-rays and then your cleaning." She motions for Adora to come with her.

    Summary

    "Glim, I really didn’t think this separation would last this long,” Adora breathed into the phone as she closed her eyes. “Cat’s my home Glim, and I thought I was hers.”

    Adora’s bent her head forward to press against her desk, feeling more hopeless than ever. Glimmer was silent—for once—on the other end of the line. She picked up one of her many fountain pens and twirled it around her fingers.

    “Honestly, Adora I never thought you two would be apart for this long either.” Glimmer’s voice was filled not only with sadness but with something worse—doubt.

    “You don’t think we are going to stay together, do you? Or I guess—get back together.” Adora asked her closest friend. The silence was deafening.

    OR

    Adora and Catra, childhood friends and college sweethearts, have been separated for a year and are on the verge of divorce. Although they manage to co-parent their eight-year-old Finn, it seems that all hope is lost for their marriage. Adora and Catra try to navigate their separation and recover at least part of what they lost.

    Summary

    “Okay. Then tell me what you do remember.”

    Adora wraps her arms around herself, hugging her elbows, and winces. “I remember changing...It hurt. Worse than this,” she nods her chin towards the ripped carpet. “And I wanted it to stop...I just wanted it to stop. And I knew there was something that could do that. I didn’t know where it was but I knew it would help, so I went looking for it.”

    Catra waits for her to continue, but she doesn’t.

    “And?”

    “And then I found you,” Adora says tightly. Her voice is deeper, calmer than before. She almost sounds a little angry. “And I felt better.”

    -

    When Catra receives a call from her sister Glimmer asking her to help catch a runaway werewolf during the full moon, she’s expecting it to be a one night deal. But when the next full moon rolls around and the wolf comes looking for her, she realizes she may have attracted a stray.
