    Summary

    Yelena is standing right in front of her, arms still in front of her like she’s ready to block a punch (because that’s what they’re doing, they’re literally in the middle of a fight, what the hell), her eyes glint and her lips curve upwards to form an infuriating grin.

    “Did you just moan?”

     

    Or, the one where Kate and Yelena take a quick break from fighting to fall in love.

    Summary

    How do you send the Devil Wears Prada movie-verse off in a totally different direction? Start by changing one thing. Add in some romance, a dash of investigative journalism, a lot of longterm pining, and a number of very familiar lines of dialogue and you get "Even."

    Summary

    “Bracelets meant something different, on Krypton,” Alex says. “The entire culture was really different, so things don’t always translate over quite right. But the closest equivalent for us would be a wedding or engagement ring.”

    Something in Lena falls into place; the universe in shambles builds itself back together.

    “Lena, do you have feelings for my sister?”

    OR, Kara and Lena make friendship bracelets and deny their feelings admirably. Four years later, Alex tells Lena what a bracelet means on Krypton.

    Summary

    She had been trying to fit in. Walk like a human. Eat reasonable portion in front of people. Lowering her IQ to be like human. Don’t get her wrong. She didn’t see human as inferiors, she was just tired of not being able to do Calculus by heart from time to time. And the last but not least, hiding her powers at all costs. Even the cost being losing her very essence.

    Her alienage. Not just from another country but from a totally different planet. Hell, a totally different galaxy. For one who had been to 12 planets and spoke dozens of languages fluently without a hint of accent, hiding it at all hurt. It was an insult. But to protect herself and her family on earth, she would do it in a heartbeat.

    Or

    Kara is still Kryptonian but Lena is an actor. They meet and fall in love but life is never as easy as it seems.
