    Summary

    Two years after billionaire Lena Luthor vanished from her office at L-Corp, Tess Mercer appeared in an alleyway in Metropolis with no memory of her past. Barely scraping by as a mechanic in the slums of the city, she finds herself troubled by the things she can do, building bombs from scrap metal and fighting off people with skills she doesn't know where she learnt. Her memory is gone, just out of reach, but Tess can't help but feel like there's something more to her blank past than she knows. Searches for the truth turn up empty, until the fourth anniversary of Lena Luthor's disappearance, when Tess sees her face on the TV and knows that the person she's looking at is herself.

    On the other side of the country, Kara Danvers has spent the last four years searching for her missing wife while raising her nephew and masquerading as a part-time superhero. When there's finally news of Lena, things don't go to plan when she comes home to a wife she doesn't know she has, and an eight-year-old child that isn't hers. As they try to recover Lena's memory and figure out what happened to her, Kara struggles to let go of the fact that she might never get her wife back.

    Summary

    “It is … with the consideration of the welfare of humanity, the protection of the United States Government and its people, that President Baker had signed an incarceration order for the stated below, Lena Kieran Luthor, on grounds of treason and crimes against humanity. Furthermore, it is the decision of the President of the United States that the Department of Extranormal Operations take into consideration the superhuman intelligence of Miss Luthor-“

    “Superhuman?” Lena scathingly scoffed. “I’m human.”

    “The superhuman intelligence of Miss Luthor, and, as such, convict her of her crimes in line with their punishment for all extranormal persons found guilty of possessing abilities deemed inhuman by the DEO. As such, a life sentence will be served at a secret DEO facility, at the discretion of Director Hank Henshaw. Dated this morning.”

    The air was expelled from Lena’s lungs and she gripped the edge of the table, her eyes burning with the urge to cry as her heart hammered in her chest.

    “Please. You can’t do this; I didn’t hurt anyone. I’m- I’m innocent. You haven’t even given me a- a trial. I mean-“

    Summary

    Eve realizes she hasn’t heard her name, hasn’t really given it thought, since stepping into this space of nothings and somethings. Villanelle gives it to her like she has been hoarding it, delighting in the challenge of keeping it still on her tongue, cutting the inside of her mouth with it, loving the taste so much as to struggle between freeing it from the cage of her teeth — and swallowing.
