Fandoms: Supergirl (TV 2015)
02 May 2022
The Supercorp Song of Achilles AU, featuring Kara as Achilles and Lena as Patroclus. Is love enough to defy destiny?
Original story for msdanvers' the trojan war gifset, for SCBB21, alternate (happy) ending now added!
It was one thing to know something and another to see it with your own eyes, to bear witness to the transformation from a person to the divine and the blood spilled along the way. The tales varied, the stories differed, but there was always blood.
As Kara readied herself to throw again, she reached out with her left hand behind her. Her fingers were open, splayed, searching. I stepped up and grasped them, squeezing with reassurance even as her other arm readied the spear. I would support her always, even in this. Kara had decided, though it was but a war sparked by pride, that she would fight, if only to protect her people. I trusted her judgement.
I cringed at the death, but I was far too selfish to let her go. As each man fell, I squeezed her hand thrice. I. love. you. I chanted in my mind, hoping and praying, but knowing that my love would not be enough to save her.
