    Summary

    It isn’t The Wizard of Oz that pierces through whatever walls Kara has placed around her heart, nor is it Singing In The Rain, or even West Side Story. No, it’s Oklahoma! that blindsides her, leaves her sobbing into her throw pillow until her voice disappears and she’s too exhausted to move to her bed.

    She can’t figure out why a story set in the time of farmhands and cowboys could make her think of Lena in any way until she rewatches it.

    And oh. Oh, she finally gets it now.

    Kara hears the words being sung and is reminded of the fact that after everything, Lena still doesn’t have the full story.

    Lena had accused her of having ulterior motives, of wanting to be close to her out of selfishness, of being too cowardly to ever take a real leap of faith. She isn’t all that wrong. Kara’s alter ego may be out in the open now for Lena to see, but that doesn’t mean Kara isn’t still hiding behind some lies.

    The fact that she’s fallen in love with Lena Luthor accidentally along the way is the only secret she’s got left.

     

    AKA, Kara watches an old movie, realizes what's been in front of her this whole time, and somehow, finds her way back to where her heart has made its home.

    Summary

    Kara rounded the corner of the couch and sank into the small section of the L so she could take in the whole scene. Behind the tree with its glass baubles and chic skirt the city was picturesque, lit in a checkered patchwork of golden windows against the dark night. Snow was swirling in a muted gray, thick fat flakes steadily coating the banister of Lena’s balcony.

    And beside her, Lena.

    Summary

    “I hope I didn’t interrupt anything important. You just looked kind of uncomfortable and he was getting a little handsy with you so I thought that I would come save you.” She says it quietly, only audible to Lena’s ears despite the soft quality of the music. Then after a beat, she realizes exactly how that must sound, promptly flushes and then backpedals. “I mean, not to imply that you needed saving or – or that you would prefer my hands on you – “And Rao that was not much better and she really should stop talking now. “I just wanted to give you an out and I thought you may feel safer with – well. Me.”

    Or

    Kara is a useless gay, thirsting after her best friend. And Lena makes lots of very non-platonic comments in hopes that it will someday register.

    Summary

    One day, two women meet on the subway. The recently dumped Lena is recovering from a broken heart, and Kara is grappling with the open-ish relationship she has with her long-distance boyfriend. They decide that they’re going to become friends. The kind of friends who also have totally casual, no-strings-attached, nobody’s-catching-feelings sex. What could go wrong?

    As Alex puts it: “Kara. This is the dumbest thing you’ve ever done. And I’m including the time that you set fire to your own hair and nearly burned the house down trying to do some spell you found on MySpace to make Troy Bolton materialize in real life and marry you.”

    Or: Lena and Kara go around New York City eating food and banging each other until their feelings eat away at them, and Alex tries not to have an aneurysm about it.
