    Summary

    “I, uh, realized that you’re simply a hallucination that I see in high stress situations as a coping mechanism.”

    “Am I now?” Regina’s smirking at her and there’s enough mischief in those brown eyes to make Emma press her thighs together. She cannot seriously be turned on by her own hallucination. That’s another level of insanity and proves she really does need to get laid.

    God, Freud would have a field day with her.

    “Anyway, I’ve decided to just let you do whatever it is you do and not fight it. Coping mechanisms are supposed to be good, right?” Emma shrugs.

    “Coping mechanisms are good. Extreme anxiety that results in apparent psychosis and hallucinations? Not so much, dear.” Regina snickers. “But worry not. I’m not a hallucination.”

    Or that one where Emma starts seeing a woman no one else can see while trying to avoid the mafia lackeys of a loan shark.

    Summary

    Emma almost has everything. She's got a wonderful son, a beautiful, tender friend and co-parent, and a family she can count on. It was all she ever dreamed of, once upon a time. At times, she thinks she finally understands what authors mean when they end their story with: they lived happily ever after.

    But the feeling always leaves her by the morning. Sometimes she thinks her real happy ending has disappeared somewhere in the past, somewhere in between the curses and forgotten memories. And now it is only a possibility lost to her memories.

    If she could go back...

    (or in other words, season 6 emma goes back in time and accidentally makes season 1 regina fall in love with her.)

    Summary

    Every athlete has their own superstitions and pre-game rituals, and Lexa is no exception. She thinks no one knows about her night-before-the-game FaceTime hook-ups with her girlfriend to help her relax and sleep... but it's actually Polis State Women's Soccer's Best Worst-Kept Secret.

    Things get complicated when she and Costia break up, and Lexa's playing suffers. When they end up hotel roommates at an away game, Clarke decides to take one for the team and lend a helping hand, not so metaphorically speaking. It doesn't mean anything... right?

    Summary

    Clarke is just trying to get through her last year of college after the suicide of her boyfriend the previous year. When she's offered the opportunity to help with a restoration project at a nearby house rumored to be haunted, she leaps at the chance. She finds herself drawn to a statue of a young woman who seems somehow familiar... and starts to question her sanity when the statue disappears and a girl who looks just like her appears in her place and memories of another life come flooding back, and they are faced with difficult choices about the the lengths they're willing to go to for love.

    Based on this post.

    Summary

    It takes Finn cheating on her (and getting caught) for Clarke to finally call it quits. She’s almost embarrassed about that. All the shit she comes to realize he’s done over the last four years, but it’s her hurt pride—the fact that he cheated on her with some twenty-one-year-old he met at a bar, for three goddamn months—that makes her tell him it’s over and demand the keys to the apartment back.

    Finn doesn’t go quietly.

     

    Completed! This isn’t a light one, y’all, but there's eventual Clarke/Lexa of course. See tags and notes.
