    Summary

    Unthinking Adora leans forward to tuck a loose tendril of hair behind Catra’s ear. Catra stills. Her ears and tail go rigid with anxiety, and it’s only then that Adora realizes how much Catra’s hair has grown in the last few months. At this length, pushed back behind her ears, it reminds Adora of…

    She remembers the shock of seeing Catra’s hair, shorn and slicked back, on Horde Prime’s ship. She had never seen Catra’s hair that short in her life — and if she had, it would have been when they were too young for her to remember.

    Without it, she had seemed so small.

    “I’m sorry,” Adora says, snatching her hand back. “I didn’t mean to, I—”

    “It’s fine,” says Catra. She runs a hand through her hair, effectively dislodging the piece that Adora has just brushed down. She catches Adora’s hand in hers and says, “If it’s you, it’s fine.”
    _________

    A study of character and relationship growth through hair, or: Five times Adora helped Catra with her hair, and one time Catra helped Adora with hers.
