    Summary

    “Do you want to do this?” She asks, her voice a little breathless. 

    Kara blinks up at her. “Do what?”

    “Use each other for sex,” Lena says bluntly.

    Summary

    “It’s a lot easier for me to keep my grip on you when I can actually feel your body.”

    The phrase feel your body said in Kara’s voice rattles around in Lena’s head like a pinball machine, but she manages to shrug her sweater off and throw it somewhere behind them before she can second-guess herself. Kara is looking comfortable in a loose white t-shirt, and when she takes Lena by the waist and puts Lena’s hand on her shoulder the texture of it is light and soft.

    “Let’s start from square one,” Kara says, so kindly that her next words take a few seconds to register in Lena’s brain. She tightens her grip on Lena’s waist, and says with full confidence:

    “Dancing is a lot like sex.”

    OR

    Against her better judgement, Lena agrees to compete on Dancing with the Stars. When her chemistry with Kara gets misconstrued by the press, there’s obviously only one solution.

    Summary

    All Lena Luthor wants to do in life is fall in love. She has everything she could ever dream of - heiress to a large fortune, the career she's always wanted, and adoring friends - but love is the one area of her life she's always failed at. Falling in love at the drop of a hat, she finds herself always a little bit heartbroken, with a string of one-night stands, flings, and failed relationships in her wake. It's not for lack of trying but they just never seem to stick.

    When she meets a stranger in a bar, she's certain this time she's found the one, but Kara Danvers is strangely immune to her charm and so aloof that Lena can't help but fall head over heels with her and the thrill of trying to sweep her off her feet. But love is rarely simple and things are never as easy as they seem.

    Summary

    “Oh, no, you definitely don’t want to do that,” Kara said, picking up a paper cup and dumping a teabag in it.

    The woman next to her looked up, surprise etched onto her pale, drawn face. “Excuse me?” she rasped.

    Kara nodded at the coffee pot the woman had picked up and wrinkled her nose. “You’d get better coffee at the 7/11 across the street and that’s saying something. I’d stick with tea.”

    “Oh. Oh … okay.”

    “First time?” Kara asked, glancing sideways at the woman.

    She was striking, her medium height made a fraction taller by her heels, the tailored cut of her clothes precise, her makeup perfect and her dark hair long and sleek. In her scrubs and denim jacket, bare-faced and dishevelled, Kara felt positively inadequate. And yet, there was the same hollowed out look to the newcomer's face, a sadness in her green eyes, a weary slump to her shoulders that was recognisable.

    “Yes.”

    Picking up a glazed donut, Kara took a bite and gave her a strained smile. “I’d say it’s good to have you here but … well, obviously not.”

    Summary

    “Please,” Lena says, shrugging her shoulders. “You know you’re my favourite. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. You’re my favourite. You’re acting like this is brand new information.”

    And that's—

    Wow. To hear Lena say this, to know that this still holds true even after everything that has happened… Kara flushes. She fiddles with her belt, exhales softly.

    or Lena is a terrible enabler. Kara wants anything and everything Lena will give her, and underneath the weight of such gentle, earnest warmth, it keeps escaping Kara why that is dangerous.
