    Summary

    “It’s about compromise,” Glimmer supplies, “seeing how well two conflicting people work together under difficult circumstances for an extended period of time. Adora goes to the gym everyday, Catra’s only form of workout is walking from her dorm to her classes, Adora wakes no later than eight in the morning, Catra got mad at me for waking her up,” she lifts her hands for air quotes, “‘in the middle of the night’ at eight in the morning—”

    “Adora obviously wants to be friends, but Catra keeps pushing it off,” Entrapta adds in, and based on the way both Glimmer and Bow grimace, that wasn’t supposed to be mentioned.

    “So what,” Adora starts, “you just… handcuffed us together in our sleep?”

    (or, in which Glimmer handcuffs Adora and Catra together for twenty-four hours, Entrapta is a little shit, and Bow is an innocent bystander in the entire mess.)

    Summary

    Adora, anxious to get a fresh start after the death of her parents and twin brother in a car accident, moves to the small town of Bright Moon. She’s far from happy about it and just wants to forget about her ongoing complications from the accident, graduate, and get out again.

    Catra is just as desperate to get out of Bright Moon herself. Stuck in a house with an emotionally abusive mother and keeping a lot of secrets, Catra knows that the only way she’ll ever feel okay is if she gets the hell out. After a string of awkward encounters, both are perfectly fine with keeping a mutual avoidance policy in place.

    But then the first body is found, and Catra and Adora are thrown together in grizzly circumstances where one thing is certain.

    Nothing will ever be the same again.

    Summary

    "We’re not together, Adora just said a bunch of weird crap to me last night about how we’re not just friends.” She crosses her arms and slouches in her seat.

    “Uh…that kind of sounds like you’re together.” Bow points out gently, clearly trying to avoid lighting Catra’s fuse.

    “We’re not in a relationship!” She pops off anyway.

    “Yeah, no, just a domestic partnership.” Glimmer snarks.

    “Will you fuck off? She explicitly said it’s not romantic. She literally fucking said- you know what? It doesn’t matter, it didn’t make any sense anyway.”

    Catra and Adora navigate the confusing in between of being roommates who may be more than friends but are certainly less than lovers.

    “Are you bored yet?” Adora whispers, leaning a little further into Catra’s space. She swears she hears the other woman’s heart rate pick up speed, even over the thumping bass of… some kind of synth-pop sea shanty.

    “I was getting there,” she replies slowly, skimming the soft skin at the base of Adora’s neck with her thumb absentmindedly; Adora swallows and Catra traces the movement with her eyes before looking back up. “Why?”

    “You said you’d leave if it got boring,” Adora murmurs, leaning into the touch ever so slightly. “If you want to leave… I’ll go with you. If you want.” Catra’s answering smile is slow and dangerous.

    “Oh I’m so bored, princess. I think you might need to rescue me.”

    Summary

    “And what are you in for?” the woman asks snidely, crossing her arms and sneering. “Frat party gone wrong? Drunk driving? No wait - embarrassing sexual escapades.” Adora’s kind of glad that whatever’s wrong with her at the moment seems to make her completely incapable of blushing.

    “I am completely yellow,” she says with a raised eyebrow. “What the hell kind of sexual escapades would turn me yellow?” the other woman snorts.

    “Embarrassing ones, obviously.” Adora rolls her eyes and there’s silence for a moment.

    “I’m Adora,” she tries. The other woman stares at her.

    “Okay. Good for you.”

    Adora's gallbladder tries its best to ruin her life, her hospital buddy is both angry and impossibly beautiful, and sometimes apples aren't just apples. Adora blames Chris Martin.
