    Summary

    Kara’s already having a shit day.

    It even started off bad – she woke up late, nearly forgot her glasses, dropped her morning bagel on the ground and spilled her coffee on her favorite shirt. And then she just fought an alien with a cold so her super-suit has weird blue gunk stuck to it from when he sneezed on her. Three times in a row.

    This is all to explain why, when she flies through the window of her apartment, slips out of her super-suit, turns on the light, and sees her arch-nemesis and resident evil-nerd-who-tried-to-kill-her, Lena Luthor, sitting on her couch—she barely blinks an eye.

    Lena, however, scowls at her in that way she does and says, “If you tell anyone I’m here, I’ll tell the world Supergirl moonlights as a second-rate reporter.”

     

    Or the one where Lena's a criminal and Kara loses every argument she tries to have.

    Summary

    “Are we… are we okay?”

    “We’re stuck in a nuclear apocalypse, likely a result of my father’s gross negligence, and now used as a playground for an egomaniac’s deranged, power fantasies.”

    “Lena.” Her name is a slow sigh. A patient, painstakingly fragile one at that.

    Lena closes her eyes, inhaling against the torrent of emotions fighting towards a surface she’s not ready to break.

    “Us being stuck here together doesn’t change anything.”

    ---

    Or, Kara and Lena find themselves stranded on a barren Earth where they are forced to work together to survive and finally confront the toxic wasteland their relationship has become.

    Summary

    The first time Kara kisses her, it is largely unimportant.

    It happens simply enough: Kara’s mouth pressed to Lena’s cheek mid-pose for the group photo that Nia insists on taking during a particularly rowdy game night. In the grand scale of things, it barely even registers. Kara’s lips are there and gone in the time it takes for an iPhone camera shutter to open and close, and the only lasting reminder of it lives on Nia’s Instagram page, in a world of social media that Lena does not frequent.

    She doesn’t really think about it.

    Love. A slow building affection and ache for someone who has embedded themselves into the very core of your being. A light from within that offers warmth and clarity.
