    Summary

    “Lena.”

    It's the first time Supergirl has called her by her name. Not Kara, but Supergirl. She startles at the sound of it, at how much she likes hearing Kara say it even when she's like this. Kara is looking at her with such care and she doesn't deserve it. Doesn't deserve any of it. No one has ever loved her, and maybe there's a good reason. There has to be.

    Lena's free hand clenches into a fist.

    “What?” She says, a bit too sharp, a bit slurred. “I'm fine.”

    Summary

    ‘I’m getting married,’ Lena breathes emphatically, entreatingly, and her attention snaps to like a band pulled taut. She watches with increasingly disaffected pliancy as Lena seizes both her hands in one of her own and flashes her left at her, right under her nose. ‘Say something,’ Lena laughs, a little too breathless, a little too conscious. ‘You’re making me nervous.’

    Don’t, she thinks she could’ve said, and the vehemence of the very thought startles her. Why? is a little better, syntactically, in theory—less cruel, an open question, room for conversation. Really? is enthusiastic, breakwater, appropriate, adequate.

    ‘Oh, god,’ she says instead.

    Or, alternatively:

    In which Lena announces her engagement, to everyone’s immense horror and Kara’s heartbroken disbelief, and everything that follows after.

    Summary

    Kara is caught between being herself and being the person the public wants her to be. Enter Lena Luthor, the refreshingly blunt retail worker who doesn't even know who Kara is; this could either be the start of something wonderful, or something uniquely bizarre. (Either way, Kara's really into it.)

    Summary

    When Kara's interrupted by a stranger in a bookstore, she finds herself swept up in witty conversation over coffee as they debate reading habits, completely enraptured by the beautiful woman who spouts poetry, is brazenly confident and just a little bit cocky.
