    Summary

    “Damn it,” Alex grumbles, kicking at an empty chair until it skids across the floor. “Come on, guys. There has to be someone who can go undercover. Any woman under 30 at this bureau who can put on some makeup and twirl in a circle.”

    And then all eyes, inexplicably, go to Kara.

    “Who?” Kara asks, looking back and forth between Alex and Vasquez and surreptitiously brushing the Cheeto dust from her pants. “Who is it, guys?”

    But Alex and Vasquez just keep staring at her silently, matching grins on their faces, and after a few seconds the horrible truth dawns on her. Kara blinks, looking down at herself and then back up at them.

    “But…I’m 31?”

    OR

    To help her sister foil an attack on the Miss United States pageant, Kara needs to go undercover. There’s only one problem – she’s never been ladylike a day in her life. What starts as a reluctant favour leads Kara to real friendship, growth, and Lena Luthor, all under the watchful eye of the pageant spotlight.

    OR OR

    Summary

    “Help me understand,” Kara says. “Are you saying everyone falls in love with their best friend?”

    “I’m saying that queer women have a special affinity for it,” Lena repeats, fishing the cherry out of the bottom of her drink. “The whole ‘falling for your straight best friend’ is basically a rite of passage.”

    “Says who?”

    “Everyone.” She puts the cherry in her mouth, bites it off the stem. “The L Word was like, built on the premise that a friend group of queer woman in LA dated each other in some sort of terrible repeating circle for, god, however many seasons that went on. And it’s been my experience that when two people are attracted to each other, and they’re close, feelings are likely to develop.”

    “That’s just, I mean, come on.” Kara’s cheeks are a little pink. “A trope and a tv show? That’s your evidence?”

    “So you’ve never been in love with your best friend?” Lena looks down at her empty glass.

    “No!” Kara sounds affronted. “No, I have never been in love with my best friend.”

    Summary

    Kara has officially decided: Lena Luthor is her hot girl bummer.
    College AU where Kara and Lena can’t stand each other, but still end up sleeping together every weekend. It turns into friends with benefits. And then, someone catches feelings.
    . . . . . . .
    “Love can’t really be kept though,” Kara says. “It can only be given.”
    “To give something is to lose something,” Lena retorts.
    “No, it’s not,” Kara says, and Lena can practically feel her frowning. “It’s … to trust, to trust that you’ll get it back.”

    Summary

    “What was the question again?”

    “Never have I ever had an orgasm.” Alex rolls her eyes a bit. “Just drink up Kara, it’s not that hard.”

    “Uhm.” Kara picks up her shot glass. It’s cool against her hand, and glistening with condensation. “Well, uh… I… I can’t do that.” She winces slightly as she says it, but what’s the point of the game if she lies? She puts the shot glass down. “You know. Because I never—”

    OR

    A/B/O College AU in which Kara is an alpha with a complicated relationship with her status and sex, and Lena offers to enter a friends with benefits relationship with her to help her self-exploration. Because there's absolutely no chance they'll fall in love in the process.

    Summary

    Kara might have noticed earlier once they went their separate ways after their shared class that Lena’s poetry journal had dropped out of her backpack. But not just any journal, her super mysterious, ultra top secret, “no one else but me reads it, Kara”, poetry journal that she's always writing in. And Kara would like to consider herself a good friend, so she had picked it up, having every intention of giving it back completely unread. But when she drops it and sees her name in one of the titles... can you really blame her for reading one page?
