    Summary

    The detective stops flipping pages and turns the folder around so Kara can see it the right way up. She scans over the text quickly and then lingers on the photograph. It shows a woman in a pencil skirt and expensive-looking blouse, half blocked from view by an extensive security detail.

    “She’s pretty,” Kara says.

    “That’s Lena Luthor,” he says, “but you already knew that.”

    Kara only smiles.

    Summary

    Lena presses the back of Kara’s hand to her forehead. “You see me, too.”

    It’s an innocent, loving gesture, and it fills Kara up with such want, such a desire for closeness, for contact, that it hurts. She’d rather not know what she’s missing.

    ---

    Or: Kara is an alien, Lena is a genius. Their strangeness separates and connects them to the world and each other in peculiar ways. Being human in Lena’s eyes allows Kara to tap into parts of herself she hadn’t been able to explore before, but she knows her secret will one day stop being a bridge between them, and they’ll both lose the version of Kara Lena has grown to love. (Tender slow burn, mutual respect, bittersweetness and tentative physicality galore! Some angst and a lot of joy)

    Summary

    The woman stops her pacing, setting her pale and unevenly-coloured eyes on Kara, and in that moment Kara understands - for the very first time - how Helen of Troy’s face could have been beautiful enough to start a war.

    “Enough. I’m tired of being passed from one person to the next. Tell me,” the woman says fiercely after Kara has been quiet for too long. “Who are you?”

    “I’m, um,” Kara says, wiggling her feet until they’re buried in the sand up to the ankle. “I’m Kara.”

    The woman stares at Kara, incredulous and silent. It stretches out between them, those lingering questions and Kara’s unwillingness to answer them, until finally her shoulders sink and she deflates with a small, disbelieving laugh. “Right. Well, I’m Lena,” she says, finally seeming to realize her dress is torn and pulling it tighter, "and if you don’t mean me harm, then I suppose you just saved me.”

    OR

    Kara’s pod crashes in 6th century Greece, her cousin nowhere to be found, and she grows up eager to emulate the heroes whose myths comforted her in the wake of Krypton’s destruction. But when she accidentally reveals her powers and the world views her as a demigod, Kara begins to understand just how dangerous that can be.

    Summary

    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.
