Fandoms: Supergirl (TV 2015)
23 Dec 2017
The crowd roars excitedly and for a second she can imagine those cries are for her. Lena can visualize the celebrations as her name is announced, her mother’s eyes shining with something new that she realizes is pride. The sensations are so overwhelming that she feels a relief deep in her chest.
It’s almost as if it were real.
The Artistic Gymnastics AU in which Kara is a very successful 19-year-old ex-gymnast who attempts a comeback to the sport under the guidance of legendary coach Lillian Luthor, and Lena is a very talented but very insecure 19-year-old gymnast who has been raised to be a champion, but apparently only manages to disappoint her mother.
By a chance encounter, Lena meets Kara, a soldier home on leave as she waits for her next deployment, at a local coffee shop one afternoon.
As they start talking, Lena feels drawn to Kara; there's something about her warmth and openness that fills the gap left by Lena's troubled childhood.
They grow close over the next few months, falling for each other as they spend more time together.
But Kara's deployment is inevitable, and with promises that she'll come home, Lena waits for her.
