    Summary

    “Oh, no, you definitely don’t want to do that,” Kara said, picking up a paper cup and dumping a teabag in it.

    The woman next to her looked up, surprise etched onto her pale, drawn face. “Excuse me?” she rasped.

    Kara nodded at the coffee pot the woman had picked up and wrinkled her nose. “You’d get better coffee at the 7/11 across the street and that’s saying something. I’d stick with tea.”

    “Oh. Oh … okay.”

    “First time?” Kara asked, glancing sideways at the woman.

    She was striking, her medium height made a fraction taller by her heels, the tailored cut of her clothes precise, her makeup perfect and her dark hair long and sleek. In her scrubs and denim jacket, bare-faced and dishevelled, Kara felt positively inadequate. And yet, there was the same hollowed out look to the newcomer's face, a sadness in her green eyes, a weary slump to her shoulders that was recognisable.

    “Yes.”

    Picking up a glazed donut, Kara took a bite and gave her a strained smile. “I’d say it’s good to have you here but … well, obviously not.”

    Summary

    For the second time that day, a woman levelled a rifle at Lena as she stood on the porch of the long, low house, an indistinguishable shadow in the dark.

    “Who’s there?” the voice called out, firm and courageous. “Name yourself or I’ll shoot.”

    Lena was fading from consciousness, her lips moving soundlessly, and she barely had the energy to straighten in the saddle before the bolt sliding home sounded. And for the second time that day, Lena was shot, the bullet grazing the side of her neck and unseating her as pain blossomed and she finally succumbed to the darkness for good.

    Summary

    “I’m not … I’m not some elf,” Lena argued, sneering as her thick eyebrows furrowed together, although her contempt was marred by the crack in her voice.

    “Indeed. You are only half of one. No matter - your ears are pointed enough and you carry your father’s blood. They have already accepted the match.”

    “Who? What match?” Lena demanded.

    Arching an eyebrow in a cool, appraising manner, Lillian smiled sharply, her eyes clearly blue in the light of the room, yet frosty and hard. “The Seelie Court. You, my daughter, will keep the peace between our courts.”

    Summary

    All Lena Luthor wants to do in life is fall in love. She has everything she could ever dream of - heiress to a large fortune, the career she's always wanted, and adoring friends - but love is the one area of her life she's always failed at. Falling in love at the drop of a hat, she finds herself always a little bit heartbroken, with a string of one-night stands, flings, and failed relationships in her wake. It's not for lack of trying but they just never seem to stick.

    When she meets a stranger in a bar, she's certain this time she's found the one, but Kara Danvers is strangely immune to her charm and so aloof that Lena can't help but fall head over heels with her and the thrill of trying to sweep her off her feet. But love is rarely simple and things are never as easy as they seem.

    Summary

    “It is … with the consideration of the welfare of humanity, the protection of the United States Government and its people, that President Baker had signed an incarceration order for the stated below, Lena Kieran Luthor, on grounds of treason and crimes against humanity. Furthermore, it is the decision of the President of the United States that the Department of Extranormal Operations take into consideration the superhuman intelligence of Miss Luthor-“

    “Superhuman?” Lena scathingly scoffed. “I’m human.”

    “The superhuman intelligence of Miss Luthor, and, as such, convict her of her crimes in line with their punishment for all extranormal persons found guilty of possessing abilities deemed inhuman by the DEO. As such, a life sentence will be served at a secret DEO facility, at the discretion of Director Hank Henshaw. Dated this morning.”

    The air was expelled from Lena’s lungs and she gripped the edge of the table, her eyes burning with the urge to cry as her heart hammered in her chest.

    “Please. You can’t do this; I didn’t hurt anyone. I’m- I’m innocent. You haven’t even given me a- a trial. I mean-“
