    Summary

    They stay that way for a long time, Catra’s face tucked into Adora’s shoulder, Adora gently cradling Catra’s head. Adora is careful not to hug Catra too hard or make her feel restrained, anticipating the moment that Catra will start to pull away — but Catra doesn’t. She hangs on so tightly it hurts, her claws digging through Adora’s jacket and into her back, latching into her like she did when she was a kitten and didn’t know how much her claws could hurt. Adora tries not to wince, tries not to move a single muscle, worried that if she does the spell will break and Catra will struggle away, appalled at having shown weakness.

    But Catra doesn’t let go. And so neither does Adora.

    Summary

    Now, though, Adora was on top of her, and her chest heaved in a way that was decidedly not sleepy. She pleaded with Catra with her eyes, then her words, “Please, I just-” before cutting off, not knowing what to even ask for.

    Summary

    Dating Adora is awesome. Or, it probably is. Catra honestly can't tell, because Bow and Glimmer haven't given them even a minute of alone-time since they started dating.

    Summary

    She could just keep Cara’s clothes, and never see her again. It could be like a sort of memento of the evening, the real signifier of the Nike event - not a borrowed red dress, but a borrowed t-shirt and pair of leggings. Less valuable by cost, sure, but far more meaningful in the wearing of it.

    Summary

    You’ve asked Yasha to carry you half a dozen times, and it’s always been fine, even when she humored you and actually did it. But this time, somewhere between the lull of her step and the loss of her gentle hands on your ribcage, you stopped treading water and got hurled skyward; adrenaline rushing whenever she looks at you now.

    Something changes on Rumblecusp, and you're going to deal with it eventually, just -- not now.
