    Summary

    'The waitress smirks, pulling a pencil from behind her ear. A few messy strands of chestnut brown hair fall out of the equally messy but styled ponytail the waitress’ hair is up in. “Just wondering if you wanted to order a drink while you wait for the rest of your party.”

    “I’m okay, thank you,” Adora answers, “I’ll wait until my date gets here.”

    The waitress raises an eyebrow, like she’s surprised someone as awkward as Adora has a date. She smirks, and questions, “blind date?”

    Adora feels herself blushing and wonders how the woman knows. “Uh, maybe.”'

    Or, Bow and Glimmer set Adora up on multiple bad dates, and Catra is the cute waitress at the restaurant who's enjoying the show.

    Summary

    The year is 2082. Temperatures reach record-breaking highs. More than 80% of the population fall below the poverty line. The world's leading corporations and CEOs continue to live comfortably.

    Welcome to Styx City, populated by a mix of humans and bioengineered people developed by Nyx Industries. These new type of humans are known as the Keres. Despite protests and treaties for their freedom, the Keres still live under a closely surveyed rule, seen only as ‘just androids pretending to be real people’. Some Keres choose to accept the life they've been given. Others choose to break free and Disconnect, forming their own identities and becoming Offline Keres, or 'Ghosts'. This is an action punishable by death.

    In this city of neon, two people--Catra, a bartender with many secrets, and Adora, an Angel who feels undeserving of her wings--try to survive with their own sets of problems and regrets. The city should've turned them cold, but instead, they find warmth with each other. Their forbidden bond is sometimes the only thing that can keep them going.

    And if their bond somehow lasts, it might be what changes Styx City forever.

    A Catradora Cyberpunk AU.

    Summary

    Adora misses her best friend, but she's usually too busy with practice and studying to spend time with Catra. That is, until they start rooming together sophomore year and Adora starts feeling emotions she doesn't quite know how to identify...

    Catra's accepted the fact that Adora has new friends and their friendship will never be the same again, but that doesn't change her crush. Maybe if she just finds someone to help her get over Adora, it will all be okay.

    (Loosely based on that one reddit post where the guy is worried that he's homophobic because he doesn't like seeing his roommate with other men but it turns out he's just gay for his roommate.)

    Summary

    Adora dances through the strands of time programmed into the system. The first week, she jumps forward just a year or two — 2042, 2043, just before the breakup, back when they were still happy. In 2051, she sports the short, choppy haircut that was popular at the time. In 2066, it’s long, and dyed at the tips. She’s twenty two, over and over and over again, each weekend spent experiencing that age right on the cusp of adulthood as she weaves in and out of time periods, searching for Catra.

    In the summer of 2044, she wanders past a sports bar and sees her own face, sweaty and breathless in an interview. Adora remembers this video — it was taken just before she received her first Olympic gold.

    Adora keeps walking. There’s no way Catra would choose to be here.


    ________

    Adora has never had much interest in the Etheria program, a virtual reality simulation in which those on the verge of death and dementia can relive their glory days, dancing side by side with the consciousnesses of the deceased — but when she runs into a familiar face while visiting a dearly departed friend, she finds herself tumbling back into a romance she thought she had lost decades ago.

    Summary

    On a cold night in 1910, something unexplainable occurs at a house outside of Bright Moon. Distant neighbors report red lights, strange noises, and horrible screaming. The police investigation finds no clues as to what may have happened, and no trace of the two girls who lived in the house, or their shadowy guardian. Without an owner present, the house is reclaimed by the bank, and then the state. It stands empty for decades, alone on its hill, the subject of ghost stories and urban legends.

    A hundred and ten years later, Bow and Glimmer enter a supposedly haunted house on a dare—and find much more than they ever could've bargained for. For Glimmer, proof that the universe is much bigger than she had imagined it, and access to a destiny that she has been waiting to claim. For Bow, a new roommate—and, maybe, a chance to do what he does best: help someone.

    (this is an ensemble fic—equal parts catradora and glimbow! there's lots for everyone!)
