    Summary

    Lena threw the watch at the wall. Impassioned, maybe. Frustrated, definitely. But the crack it made when it landed and bounced to the floor stopped everything, the time on its face and in the room.

    “I’m not some damsel in a tower.” It had felt like an eternity, it took that long for Kara to drag her eyes away from the broken thing on the ground to Lena’s face as she continued to speak. “You can’t protect everyone.”

    “I’ve lost too many people.” The fight in Kara was gone, replaced with overwhelming distress. Some animal instinct to protect, protect, protect flaring angry and neon. “I’m not going to lose you too.”

    Kara felt a ghost in her life more often than not. Either angry and alone, grief-struck and lonely, or trying not to show how desperately she wanted to be with Lena. Right now, every part was colliding like a horrific crash, too fascinating to look away from, and Lena was watching her with such naked sincerity that Kara’s stomach plummeted through and out of her.

    "I'm not Alex."

    Kara hadn't hidden any of it at all.

    Summary

    The first thing she is aware of after her time in the darkness is the overwhelming brightness of the fluorescent lights of a hospital? She has to blink a few times to clear her blurry sight.

     

     

     

     

     

    And as her vision clears, the first thing she sees is Kara. Kara who called her a villain a few hours ago and told her she’ll take care of her the way she does any other villain. Kara, who never held her family legacy against her. Kara who has lied to her multiple times. What did she care if Kara viewed her the same as all the other Luthors?

     
    Except Kara isn’t paying her the slightest attention, hasn’t noticed her at all. “No you can’t jus- what do you- I explicitly said no- the Big Easy? Who even taught you that?” She is pacing in circles, pinching the bridge of her nose. “I swear that you and your sisters and brother will be beyond grounded if you aren’t back at your grandmother’s in the next twenty minutes. I don’t ca-”

     
    "K-Kara?" The blonde stumbles, whirling around to face her with those surprised blue eyes.

    Summary

    It is a lie. There's nothing brief about this spell of insanity fuelled by her loneliness, her desire for control and her compulsive need to ruin everything she has ever worked for.

    OR: Angela wants to save Amélie. Ashe wants to save Angela. Amélie just wants agency. They all fall together in ruinous ways.

    Summary

    “What is that?” She asks, her train of thought temporarily derailed.

    “What?”

    “That noise. It’s like – a clicking –“

    “Not all of us have super hearing, Kara,” Lena jokes, smiling, and that’s when Kara sees it. A flash of metal – something round, in Lena’s mouth. Like she’s sucking on something, or like –

    Like it’s pierced.

    OR

    Kara is pretty sure she knows everything there is to know about Lena Luthor – powerful, intelligent, kind, soft, professional. That is, until she sees the tattoo on her wrist, and little by little everything she thought she knew starts to shift.
