    Summary

    “Are we… are we okay?”

    “We’re stuck in a nuclear apocalypse, likely a result of my father’s gross negligence, and now used as a playground for an egomaniac’s deranged, power fantasies.”

    “Lena.” Her name is a slow sigh. A patient, painstakingly fragile one at that.

    Lena closes her eyes, inhaling against the torrent of emotions fighting towards a surface she’s not ready to break.

    “Us being stuck here together doesn’t change anything.”

    ---

    Or, Kara and Lena find themselves stranded on a barren Earth where they are forced to work together to survive and finally confront the toxic wasteland their relationship has become.

    Summary

    “It’s a lot easier for me to keep my grip on you when I can actually feel your body.”

    The phrase feel your body said in Kara’s voice rattles around in Lena’s head like a pinball machine, but she manages to shrug her sweater off and throw it somewhere behind them before she can second-guess herself. Kara is looking comfortable in a loose white t-shirt, and when she takes Lena by the waist and puts Lena’s hand on her shoulder the texture of it is light and soft.

    “Let’s start from square one,” Kara says, so kindly that her next words take a few seconds to register in Lena’s brain. She tightens her grip on Lena’s waist, and says with full confidence:

    “Dancing is a lot like sex.”

    OR

    Against her better judgement, Lena agrees to compete on Dancing with the Stars. When her chemistry with Kara gets misconstrued by the press, there’s obviously only one solution.

    AKA, a Dancing with the Stars/Fake Dating AU.

    Summary

    “Kara I can do that. I can protect your baby from the government and anyone else who wants to hurt them. I- Kara…” Lena’s face lit up with sudden excitement. “Marry me.”
    -
    When Kara unexpectedly finds herself pregnant, and sans the boyfriend who got her so, she’s faced with a heartbreaking choice. But when she goes to her best friend for advice secrets are revealed and she is offered a way to not only keep her child but also to have the partner she’s starting to realise is everything she’s ever wanted.
    Mon-el running away has given Lena the chance to have everything she’s ever wanted, even if it’s just on paper. She’s not about to screw up her chance to have a family with Kara and she’s certainly not going to make it awkward by confessing she's hopelessly in love with her best friend. No Lena is going to make sure nothing and no one ruins this for her, not even herself.

    Summary

    “I do know you.” Supergirl’s voice is soft and tender, a contrast to the wildfire that blazed in her blue eyes. “And you know me. Look at me, Lena.” Lena complies, locking gazes with Supergirl. “Really look at me.”

    Lena notes the pleading tone in the hero’s voice and takes a moment to look deeply into those bold, azure eyes. Even though they’re intense, even though they’re filled with an anger Lena has never seen before, they’re also familiar. Why is that? This kind of familiarity comes with knowing someone intimately. She doesn’t have that kind of relationship with Supergirl, it’s strictly business.

    No, there is only one pair of blue eyes Lena has spent what feels like a lifetime staring into. And with a breathless gasp she realizes, she’s staring into them now as well. They’re darker than normal with a hint of mischief, anger and wickedness but they’re still her eyes.

    Kara’s eyes.

    Kara is Supergirl.

    Summary

    Lena had assumed Northern California, the Bay Area in general, was cool – both temperature-wise and general vibe-wise – which turns out to have been a major error. San Francisco itself is downright chilly most of the year, blanketed in fog that seeps into ones socks so they never quite feel dry, but Stanford is decidedly warm. Even so, at least her lab is climate controlled – it has to be, with the machinery inside.

    Here, camped out in little more than a tent in a dusty field an hour south of campus, it is unreasonably warm for mid-September. Worse, it’s one of those anachronistic renaissance faires that somehow have people really into time-period specific reproduction outfits coexisting with fantasy costumes and steampunk. It is, as far as she is concerned, the antithesis of cool on every level.
