    Summary

    "Why would I even want to join your team of wannabe superheroes?”

    “Because you want to be a hero, of course,” Yang replies, confident. “I heard your speech, you obviously wanna do some good in the world. And what you’re already doing is amazing, don’t get me wrong, but look, you saved our asses back there. You got skills, Blake, it’d be a waste not to use all of them for good.” And then Yang winks. “And because I can tell you like me already, princess.”

    There’s a silence. “The Cooler Avengers is a really stupid name,” Blake points out, unconvincingly. It sounds like a last-ditch effort, especially considering the smile pulling at the corner of her lips.

    “We’re not set on the name yet,” Yang says, easily, because they’re not, but she is set on Blake.

     

     
     

    In which everyone is a superhero, the Young Avengers are the new cool kids, and Yang and Blake cannot stop flirting with each other.

    Summary

    Okay. This looks bad.

    Despite being young and rich and hot and awesome, Olympic gold medalist archer Kate Bishop finds herself in a bar acting like the world’s saddest, dullest cliché: Area Twentysomething Drinks Alone Because Her Ex Is Getting Married Next Weekend. But then, from across the room, she catches the eye of a girl with a wicked smile and an even better right hook. Things start to look up after that.

    Now if only she could get Clint to stop humming “She wants the young American, young American, young American.”

    Summary

    Water fell in an even, rhythmic pattern, echoing across cobblestones. A shallow puddle gathered in the low corner of a damp dungeon. Chill seeped from the cracks in the walls and floor.

    Chains clinked gently across stone, and an occasional draw of haggard breath pushed through the silence. A woman was on her feet, barely, knees bent and head hanging, hands manacled above her head. She was gripping and releasing the chains in time to the drips, trying to keep blood flowing through her aching arms and shoulders. She inhaled and exhaled slowly, dry tongue occasionally darting out onto dry lips. Blonde hair hung down, framing her face, sticking to her neck.

    Kara Zor-El, princess of Krypton, was a prisoner – and she was scheduled to become a martyr.

    Summary

    When Lena finds out Kara and Supergirl are lovers, of course she’s happy for them. Ecstatic, even. She’s always sworn no one could be good enough for her Kara, but Supergirl comes close. Nevermind that Supergirl abandons Kara on dates, drags her onto dangerous battlefields for “the story,” and doesn’t seem to give a flying hunk of kryptonite that Kara is constantly being kidnapped to bring Supergirl down. No, Lena is thrilled.

    The DEO stages a relationship between Kara Danvers and Supergirl to foil Cadmus. Lena doesn’t handle it as well as she could.
