    Summary

    “Lena! Hey!” Kara’s voice comes pouring through the phone, and Lena feels her shoulders relax. “I was actually just about to call you. What’s up?”

     

    It’s funny, Lena thinks then, how the knots in her chest ease around Kara. Her world has always been full of uncertainties, fleeting moments of happiness snatched away when she gets too comfortable. But with Kara, it feels stable, less lonely, like maybe one day she could allow herself to breathe, if Kara’s around.

    “Oh yeah?” Lena can’t help but smile, pressing the phone closer to her ear as if it’ll help her absorb some of Kara’s warmth. “I was just going to ask if you wanted to come over for a movie night this weekend, I, um—” Lena pauses, rubbing her free hand over her sternum, “I could use the company.”

    “Oh, that’s... kind of why I’m calling, actually,” Kara says, then falters. It’s soft, and it’s hesitant, and Lena’s shoulders sag, but then— “Alex and I are going to Midvale for a few days, and I thought maybe you’d like to come.”

     

    ———

    Or, in order to starting moving on from a year of fighting phantoms, evil imps, and psychopathic brothers, sometimes you just need a little love.

    Summary

    Lena hates the theatre.

    Okay, maybe hate is a strong word, but honestly, it’s accurate. She’s hated theatre for nearly as long as she can remember, her distaste lasting from childhood and through her adolescence and sticking stubbornly all the way to adulthood. She hates plays and opera and symphonies and musical theatre, and she hates having to sit in one place for hours at a time, and she hates how unproductive the whole ordeal is, how it means she has to waste precious time she could be spending in the lab watching people play public make-believe.

    Theatre is annoying. A waste of time. Everyone who knows anything about her knows how much she hates it.

    Which is why she would currently rather be anywhere in the world than here, at the Royal National City Theatre’s latest production of whatever the fuck.

    .

    In which Kara is a Shakespeare actor (and also Supergirl), and Lena can’t stop going to see the same production of Twelfth Night over and over because the actor who plays Viola is hot.

    Summary

    When a scathing article comes out in Rolling Stone bashing Christen Press and her band, The Pali Blues, they seek their revenge by inviting the author of said article on tour with them. Enter Tobin Heath, writer and music lover who doesn't think anything The Pali Blues come up with is Rock and Roll.

    Christen and Tobin get off to a rock-y start, but a shared love of Elton John and art have their defenses dropping and sparks flying. Will they survive a romance on the road? Or are they doomed to fall apart and break up like Fleetwood Mac?

    OR the 90s Band AU nobody asked for and we wrote in honor of the Queen herself, Christen Press.
