    Summary

    “Could I get your number?” they ask, as if they’re not still a completely faceless enigma that’s been making one-sided passes for two weeks now.

    “So I’m supposed to exchange messages with someone who I wouldn’t even be able to pick out of a police lineup if this ends up being just a long con to get me to join a cult?”

    To her shock, they place an elbow on the bar, lean over, and lower the hood.

    “Does this increase my chances?” they ask with a goofy smile.

    They're cute. Like 90s teen drama cute. Like Catra could see them singing fucking annoying pop songs outside her window cute. That’s not good. This person is absolutely trouble.

    “Fuck,” Catra breathes out. It kinda feels like someone just kicked her right in the gut in a thrilling way. “You couldn’t have the decency to make this easier by being ugly?”


    Catra finally meets the woman of her dreams/nightmares. A goofball blonde with big captain save-a-ho energy. She's easy going, gets Catra's jokes, and likes her band, even though it's pretty shitty and Catra's sabotaging them from the inside. It's just a shame that the girl is already competing on a reality show for 20 women's hearts.

    Summary

    Adora lagged a few steps behind Catra, wanting to appreciate the time they had together. Something in the way she moved was like a work of art: the way her hips swayed gently as she walked, the slight tilt to her head as she scanned the paintings, how her fingers absentmindedly ran through her messy short hair.

    Despite working in the museum for a year and a half, Adora had never considered herself qualified to appreciate art.

    Maybe being around Catra was changing that.

    --
    Adora’s a security guard at an art museum, and she befriends the art student leaving mysterious notes for her after work.

    Summary

    Catra clenches her fists. She won’t let it happen. She won’t endanger their future. “We can’t change anything. We’ll just have to wait, and do everything the same way we did before.”

    Adora grabs Catra’s shoulders. Her grip is so tight, it’s nearly painful. “But do you realize what that means for us? Playing along. Letting things go the exact same way as before–”

    Catra’s expression darkens. “I know,” she says, struggling to keep her voice from trembling. “You’ll have to leave. We’ll have to be enemies again.”

    ***
    Years after defeating Horde Prime, Catra and Adora inexplicably wake up in the past—on the day that Adora first found the sword. If they're going to make it back to the present, they'll have to relive their past from start to finish, pretending to be enemies despite being in love. Despite being married. Despite knowing exactly how the story ends.

    But it's not easy, waging war against the person you love most.

    (now read the sequel, immemorial)!
