    Summary

    A lab accident with an alien substance leaves Lena with a deadly affliction. Contact with her skin causes her to drain others of their lifeforce (often fatally) but is also now necessary for her to survive. Lena decides not to "feed" off others, instead focusing on finding a cure- all the while trying to navigate the fallout from accidentally revealing her romantic feelings towards her best friend. Things complicate further too, because when the clock finally winds down, the city's resident Super takes Lena's survival into her own hands.

    Summary

    All Lena wants is to make Kara some breakfast. All Kara wants is to be as adorably obstructive as possible, apparently.

    Summary

    It’s not that Kara doesn’t want to repair the broken bridge between Supergirl and Lena-- quite the opposite, in fact, but Lena had been excruciatingly clear with how she felt about Supergirl now. Kara had reeled from those words days after. They settled deep in her chest and crackle with pain every time she breathes. They are a grim reminder of what Kara had done, and what she continues to do. Mrs. Arias had been right; she could bury it deeper and deeper, but it would always come back to blow up in her face at triple the strength.
    She’s caught between love and hate, and it’s a very odd position to be in.

    Summary

    “What’s your real name?” Lena whispers.

    “My name,” Supergirl says, shaking and fragmented like the words are splintering as soon as they pass her lips, “is Kara Zor-El. You-- you know me,” she clutches to herself to keep upright, barely able to trace the outline of Lena through the blood and tears that blur her vision and then streak freely down her cheeks, “as Kara Danvers.”

    Summary

    “But you’re... you.” Winn gestures wildly toward Lena, “if you can’t find dates then what hope do the rest of us have?!”

     

    Lena doesn’t know why she says it, only that she feels it climbing up in her throat, an itch that she didn’t know she wanted to scratch until the words are tumbling out of her, raw and shamefully satisfying.

     

    “Well, if I’m such a catch then maybe someone should just step up and ask me out then.”

    -OR-

    A video of Lena goes viral, prompting a cascade of suitors to come knocking at her door.
