    Summary

    “It’s too late,” she whispered. It always had been. She’d tried, and she’d fought, and she’d begged and screamed for a chance at a life worth living.
    It wasn’t enough.
    It never was.

    Summary

    “You are here for a reason, Yang,” Raven states between ground teeth. Maybe it’s meant to feel like a threat or a taunt, but it only lands as a reminder. Yang’s used to letting those roll right off of her. “Stay away from the Belladonna’s at all costs or so help me.”

    “Or what?” Yang challenges, not mentioning that she doesn’t care. She doesn’t give a shit about Blake Belladonna, about the sexy smirk of her lips or the danger of her hooded eyes. She can’t be bothered with caring about a single damn thing because she had been dragged on a campaign trail, shoved into a bedroom in the White House, plopped into college courses, hauled to stylists. There was only one way to survive any of this, a singular method to get her through again and again. “I don’t have much more to lose at this point.”

    Summary

    The first time Velvet Scarlatina saw a ghost was when she was 5 years old.

    *

    The Fall of Beacon and its suffocating, encroaching, dreadful mourning had not been kind to her, but she wouldn’t let anyone know that. Not then. Not when her anxieties and doubts and sorrows were hidden behind a stony wall, a stern expression, and a dark pair of sunglasses.

    *

    “You think I’m crazy,” Velvet accused, pulling further into herself.

    “For what we’ve been through, I think you’re surprisingly sane,” Coco assured her, her confident voice just barely cracking.

    Summary

    Unthinking Adora leans forward to tuck a loose tendril of hair behind Catra’s ear. Catra stills. Her ears and tail go rigid with anxiety, and it’s only then that Adora realizes how much Catra’s hair has grown in the last few months. At this length, pushed back behind her ears, it reminds Adora of…

    She remembers the shock of seeing Catra’s hair, shorn and slicked back, on Horde Prime’s ship. She had never seen Catra’s hair that short in her life — and if she had, it would have been when they were too young for her to remember.

    Without it, she had seemed so small.

    “I’m sorry,” Adora says, snatching her hand back. “I didn’t mean to, I—”

    “It’s fine,” says Catra. She runs a hand through her hair, effectively dislodging the piece that Adora has just brushed down. She catches Adora’s hand in hers and says, “If it’s you, it’s fine.”
    _________

    A study of character and relationship growth through hair, or: Five times Adora helped Catra with her hair, and one time Catra helped Adora with hers.

    Summary

    “I lost everything.” Blake’s voice breaks, the end of her word vanishing in a croak.

    “Like what?” Yang demands, pushing on despite the fact that she wants to drop everything. The past pieces of herself—of them—are already on the floor at their feet. There are fragments and shards cluttered beneath them and Yang is done with attempting to find enough glue to hold herself together. “What have you possibly lost, Blake?”

    “I lost my home.” You. “I lost my happiness.” You. “I lost the only person I’ve ever loved.”
