    Summary

    Catra hurriedly made her way through the usually busy streets of Brightmoon, headed straight for the bus stop a block away from her apartment. Wait. Catra stopped in her tracks, taking a moment to survey her surroundings. Where is everyone? The street was empty, save for a parked car or two. Not a single person in sight. Catra stood and listened for a few minutes, desperate to hear the rumble of a car engine, or the sound of someone grumbling about their morning commute, hell Catra would settle for the sound of an insect or two right about now. But the sound never came. All Catra heard was the sound of her own suddenly erratic breathing.
    ---
    OR, Catra wakes up to find that she is the only person in the whole city. Things only get weirder from there.

    Summary

    Catra figured that if she went from working at local town bars to more upscale night clubs that the number of creepy men that try hitting on her would decrease significantly. Wrong, the only difference is the amount of money in their wallets.

    Summary

    It was natural, right? To want that for herself: someone to tell her who she was, in her entirety, in her truth, whenever she forgot. For her heart to lurch forward and go God, give it to me, where do I start and then fall flat when it came up empty, like expecting a three-course meal only to end up swallowing air.
    Adora had always been good at self-control - one of the perks of a life spent in service of whatever she thought was the greater good. But now this hunger had started in her, and there was nothing preventing it from developing further.
    And it was all Catra’s fault.

    A year after the war, Adora returns to Etheria. She finds everything has changed, except the thing that really should have.

    Summary

    Adora doesn’t know she and Catra ever broke up. Catra doesn’t believe Adora is ever coming back.

    When Adora left Catra in their tiny town of Thaymor to play volleyball at the University of Bright Moon she made a promise. When Catra watched her drive away with nothing but false hope to keep her warm, she let Adora go. Now it’s 8 years later. Adora’s an Olympic gold medalist, ready to keep her promise, and Catra’s a high school music teacher, desperate for a peaceful winter break. But some promises are harder to keep than others, and peace on earth does not mean peace for you.

    Summary

    “It’s like a set up to a joke,” Catra says, setting her wine glass down. She shifts back to face Adora and lays down over the covers, looking up at her from a nest of pillows. “Two attractive lesbians keep running into each other halfway around the world. What do you think they do?”
