    Summary

    “Damn it,” Alex grumbles, kicking at an empty chair until it skids across the floor. “Come on, guys. There has to be someone who can go undercover. Any woman under 30 at this bureau who can put on some makeup and twirl in a circle.”

    And then all eyes, inexplicably, go to Kara.

    “Who?” Kara asks, looking back and forth between Alex and Vasquez and surreptitiously brushing the Cheeto dust from her pants. “Who is it, guys?”

    But Alex and Vasquez just keep staring at her silently, matching grins on their faces, and after a few seconds the horrible truth dawns on her. Kara blinks, looking down at herself and then back up at them.

    “But…I’m 31?”

    OR

    To help her sister foil an attack on the Miss United States pageant, Kara needs to go undercover. There’s only one problem – she’s never been ladylike a day in her life. What starts as a reluctant favour leads Kara to real friendship, growth, and Lena Luthor, all under the watchful eye of the pageant spotlight.

    OR OR

    The Miss Congeniality AU.

    Summary

    “Are we… are we okay?”

    “We’re stuck in a nuclear apocalypse, likely a result of my father’s gross negligence, and now used as a playground for an egomaniac’s deranged, power fantasies.”

    “Lena.” Her name is a slow sigh. A patient, painstakingly fragile one at that.

    Lena closes her eyes, inhaling against the torrent of emotions fighting towards a surface she’s not ready to break.

    “Us being stuck here together doesn’t change anything.”

    ---

    Or, Kara and Lena find themselves stranded on a barren Earth where they are forced to work together to survive and finally confront the toxic wasteland their relationship has become.

    Summary

    “Kara…” Lena whispers, looking close to tears. “You did that for me?”

    Kara shakes her head, pulling Lena closer. “I did it for both of us. I was holding myself back because it was easier that way, but I didn’t think about what it was doing to you. Especially this week. I’ll tell everyone else tomorrow, I promise. I just wanted Alex to know first, she would have killed me if Winn found out at the same time she did –“

    Kara’s ramble is cut off by soft, insistent lips, and the entire weight of Lena’s body being thrown into her arms.

    OR

    Coming out is hard, Kara gets injured, Lena hacks the DEO to find her, and make-up sex makes it all better.
