    Summary

    A dame comes wandering into Kara Danvers's office, asking for help against her husband. Thing is, the dame is Lena Luthor, her former friend and occasional collaborator, and almost certainly the love of her life. And the thing is, too: Lena's husband tried to kill Kara for their friendship. All told, Kara should send her away. She doesn't.

    Kara Danvers is like any other person in love. A damnable idiot.

    or

    the noir au.

    Summary

    “Are you going to keep staring at me all night?” the witch said, breaking Kara out of her reverie with a start.

    They’d been silent for a few moments now, and she’d fallen into a trance that she would’ve sworn was witchcraft if she didn’t know any better. No, this bewitchment was of Kara’s own volition, enraptured by the woman’s alabaster skin and raven hair plastered to her face. The dark cloak she wore was black with water and seemed to swallow her, making her seem almost childish, playing dress-up in her mother’s clothes. The thought of a childhood so normal for the young witch made Kara startle slightly, blinking rain out of her eyes as she suppressed a shiver.

    “Because, you know, if you want to kiss me, you may as well ask. The sun’s setting and it’s cold, and the hills are boring. So, by all means, get on with it.”

    Kara choked on a splutter and felt her face warm with embarrassment, chasing away the edge of the cold wind. “I don’t want to kiss you! I’m here to- to slay you.”

    Summary

    Formerly titled "this little piggie had a house made of bricks".

    ---

    The man nodded. Nodded again. “Here’s half now - ten thousand. The rest when she’s gone.”

    The man laid the envelope at Vi’s free hand. Drank his entire beer. Left quickly.

    Vi looked up, looked through the large plate glass that acted as a window front to the bar, but the man was long gone, disappearing into the neon streets of Zaun. Vi popped the envelope open, found a wad of bills and a 5x7 photograph. The picture was of a woman, staring straight into the camera - dark navy hair, face mostly sharp angles, an intelligent gleam to blue eyes.

    Vi shuddered out a breath, downed the rest of her second beer, and flipped the photo of the woman marked for death over.

    Summary

    For an immortal, finding peace in a slow and lengthy existence can often drive one to unending boredom and recklessness. With the world progressing and warping into a ball of wire and plastics and technology, that once boundless territory is choked and hard to find. There are still some pockets of wildness left in this realm to exist in, and that is where the Morrigan has tucked herself away. In a small cozy home on the far rocks of the Faroes, she has finally found peaceful refuge after centuries of turmoil just on the edge of modern humanity. Lonely and far from her true home she keeps to herself, until one evening her life is upended again in the form of a fiery Fae and broken wards.
