    Summary

    Coping with her stressful studies on the way to certification as a physiotherapist, Adora has fallen into a local community theatre as a way to have fun and make new friends. She's made a place for herself there and everything is going great when she lands one of the lead roles of their newest play - until she shows up to the first rehearsal and the person cast in the role of her romantic opposite is Catra, who she hasn't seen since the breakup eight years ago when she left Catra behind to move across the country for a soccer scholarship.

    But there's no denying the obvious chemistry between them when they get on stage, and the director won't hear of anybody else playing the roles.

    Summary

    AU: Blake is disillusioned: with her career in the White Fang Ballet, with her oppressive boyfriend and ballet master, and her life in general. A chance visit to the Shattered Moon Circus, however, introduces her to trapeze artist and aerial dancer Yang, who offers to teach Blake how to fly. As she learns to let go and trust in the people who catch her, she falls in more ways than one when it comes to Yang.

    “Blake,” Sienna says, calmly. “Have you lost your goddamn mind?”

    And maybe she has. After all, Blake can't just run away and join the circus.

    Summary

    “I’d prefer if we talked this out before gettin’ into uncivil territory, ma’am.”
    A pair of feline ears flicked at the title, as though uncertain how to process it. Yang couldn’t imagine her being called by anything else.
    -
    A snap decision unexpectedly binds a stubborn deputy and disillusioned outlaw together, setting them both on a collision course with their own demons. Also, there are horses.

    Summary

    Catra clenches her fists. She won’t let it happen. She won’t endanger their future. “We can’t change anything. We’ll just have to wait, and do everything the same way we did before.”

    Adora grabs Catra’s shoulders. Her grip is so tight, it’s nearly painful. “But do you realize what that means for us? Playing along. Letting things go the exact same way as before–”

    Catra’s expression darkens. “I know,” she says, struggling to keep her voice from trembling. “You’ll have to leave. We’ll have to be enemies again.”

    ***
    Years after defeating Horde Prime, Catra and Adora inexplicably wake up in the past—on the day that Adora first found the sword. If they're going to make it back to the present, they'll have to relive their past from start to finish, pretending to be enemies despite being in love. Despite being married. Despite knowing exactly how the story ends.

    But it's not easy, waging war against the person you love most.

    (now read the sequel, immemorial)!

    Summary

    Kali nudges Ghira’s elbow, “Looks like you didn’t have anything to worry about with that boy after all.”

    Ghira is already looking at them when Kali says this. He’s still watching, the moment when they both pull back a little. Yang keeps one arm locked around the small of Blake’s back but her other hand comes up to brush at Blake’s tears. Yang’s eyes have gone soft as she looks down at Blake even as her own tears come thick and fast.

    Ghira can’t see his daughter’s face, but he can see Yang’s. He sees the way Yang looks at Blake, every emotion in her eyes fierce and raw and brown sugar sweet.

    “Well, thank the Gods for that.”
