    Summary

    Lena is on her fifth sleepless night in a row when her dear friend Jess suggests she visit a doctor for her troubles. Her suggestion is given slyly, a smirk painted on Jess’s face. This smirk has not always ended well for Lena, but she is desperate, overcome with shocking thoughts and tossing and turning, and so she accepts a recommendation: a Dr. Danvers, of Marylebone.

    This moment is one she will spend her life looking back on, at times rueing and others thanking a giving and kind God for.

    or, Lena is a Victorian woman with hysteria, and Kara is a kind Doctor with just the help she needs.

    Summary

    “Lena, she’s been staring at you for the last 5 minutes. Nonstop, I’m telling you,” Jess insists.

    “How do you know she isn’t staring at you?”

    “I can tell," Jess says sagely. "If she was staring at me like that, I’d be eating her out in the bathroom as we speak.”

    OR

    Lena and Kara meet at a bar, but lose track of each other – a few months later, Lena gets a new neighbour. As it turns out, glasses and a ponytail really are a good disguise.

    Summary

    One day, two women meet on the subway. The recently dumped Lena is recovering from a broken heart, and Kara is grappling with the open-ish relationship she has with her long-distance boyfriend. They decide that they’re going to become friends. The kind of friends who also have totally casual, no-strings-attached, nobody’s-catching-feelings sex. What could go wrong?

    As Alex puts it: “Kara. This is the dumbest thing you’ve ever done. And I’m including the time that you set fire to your own hair and nearly burned the house down trying to do some spell you found on MySpace to make Troy Bolton materialize in real life and marry you.”

    Or: Lena and Kara go around New York City eating food and banging each other until their feelings eat away at them, and Alex tries not to have an aneurysm about it.
