    Summary

    Clarke studied the twigs Lexa handed her for a second, holding them up to the light. Then she looked back up at Lexa. Earnest turned to mischief in her eyes.
    “Thanks, Lexa. You’re a star.”
    Then she disapparated with a loud bang, and Lexa was left staring into open air without a single twig.

    Or

    The HP AU where Clarke and Lexa are apprentices of competing wand makers, and are sent around the world to fetch materials for wand cores and somehow always manage to run into one another.

    Summary

    “Just anywhere?” Slightly Amused turned into Definitely Amused, and full red lips opened into a smile. “Want a lift? I’m headed south and it looks like you might need a ride.”

    Kara debated the offer.

    On the one hand, she really wanted to go and do something that she wasn’t supposed to do; she wasn’t in the mood to do anything that made sense or was in character for her.

    On the other hand, this was a stranger in an expensive car and, well, she’d watched The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and it’d left an impression.

    On the other, other hand, she was bulletproof.

    OR

    Kara runs away from her wedding and embarks on a road trip with a stranger named Lena.

    Summary

    Water fell in an even, rhythmic pattern, echoing across cobblestones. A shallow puddle gathered in the low corner of a damp dungeon. Chill seeped from the cracks in the walls and floor.

    Chains clinked gently across stone, and an occasional draw of haggard breath pushed through the silence. A woman was on her feet, barely, knees bent and head hanging, hands manacled above her head. She was gripping and releasing the chains in time to the drips, trying to keep blood flowing through her aching arms and shoulders. She inhaled and exhaled slowly, dry tongue occasionally darting out onto dry lips. Blonde hair hung down, framing her face, sticking to her neck.

    Kara Zor-El, princess of Krypton, was a prisoner – and she was scheduled to become a martyr.

    Summary

    Eliza explained it as the Brand, a unique mark that could only be shared with one other person. It would etch itself onto your skin the first time you touched your destined partner. Soulmate, Eliza had said, the person whose life was meant to be intertwined with yours.

    ~~~

    The Brand, Lillian said dispassionately, was nothing more than a mark of weakness, a crutch that humans relied on as a delusion of security in a life of no guarantees. Despite its permanence, its appearance was arbitrary at best and thus had no true meaning.

    That conversation ended abruptly there, Lillian withdrawing all pretenses of attention, but even then, Lena couldn’t help but think that there was more to the Brand than that.

    Summary

    Lena Luthor is at the top of her professional game with little time for anything else. Lena's lavish, fast-paced lifestyle drastically changes one snowy Christmas night when she unwittingly stumbles into the middle of a grocery store holdup and in a bold display of self-preservation disarms the gunman.

    The next morning she wakes up in a suburban Midvale bedroom lying next to Kara, her college sweetheart who she left in order to pursue her career, and to the horrifying discovery that her former life no longer exists.

    As she stumbles through this alternate suburban universe, Lena begins to feel strangely comfortable in this new role of loving wife and mother to two children. Lena finds herself at a crossroad, where she must choose between her high-powered career and the woman she loves.
