    Summary

    Tongue firmly in cheek, I submit this brief glimpse of the life that follows once Red and Blue are ensconced in happy domesticity in a well-guarded little time bubble of their own. --SL

    Summary

    “I thought this was what you wanted,” says Catra, and she knows it’s cruel and wrong. She can’t stop. “I’m not blind.”

    Scorpia hardly reacts. “This isn’t what you want.”

    Summary

    Adora dances through the strands of time programmed into the system. The first week, she jumps forward just a year or two — 2042, 2043, just before the breakup, back when they were still happy. In 2051, she sports the short, choppy haircut that was popular at the time. In 2066, it’s long, and dyed at the tips. She’s twenty two, over and over and over again, each weekend spent experiencing that age right on the cusp of adulthood as she weaves in and out of time periods, searching for Catra.

    In the summer of 2044, she wanders past a sports bar and sees her own face, sweaty and breathless in an interview. Adora remembers this video — it was taken just before she received her first Olympic gold.

    Adora keeps walking. There’s no way Catra would choose to be here.


    ________

    Adora has never had much interest in the Etheria program, a virtual reality simulation in which those on the verge of death and dementia can relive their glory days, dancing side by side with the consciousnesses of the deceased — but when she runs into a familiar face while visiting a dearly departed friend, she finds herself tumbling back into a romance she thought she had lost decades ago.

    Summary

    Bow’s chest balloons with a deep breath. “It’s just. All this stuff. The stars, all these trees and flowers and— and the magic. They were always here. So it doesn’t really feel new. It just feels like,” he gestures some thoughtful meaning with his hand, “we’re looking at something we’ve always known, only for the first time, you know?”

    And while Bow voices this, looking around at all the things he’s known, Glimmer looks at Bow.

    Glimmer and Bow, under Etheria's moons and stars.
