Lena's not like a fan fan of Kara Danvers or anything, but Kara did work with TRAFFIC to help break the story that brought down Hydra. And then she didn't even make a big deal out of it -- said, "all I did was snap photos", respectfully turned down an interview with Cat Grant, and blushed on live Instagram when she saw Cat had branded her Supergirl for all her efforts.
So, maybe Lena has a very small, very professional crush on Kara and the work she does, but she's cool about it. She thinks she's cool about it, at least -- and then her words get stuck in her throat as soon as she walks up to Kara to introduce herself.
Especially when Kara turns around, big blue eyes glittering as she smiles at Lena, and asks, "Are you Lena Luthor?"
OR, the au where Lena's an investigative journalist that's never managed to land a front page story, Kara's a hotshot National Geographic photographer, and they make a really good team.
