    Summary

    +

    Kara looks at Lena like she's clean, like she’s never had blood on her hands and the burgundy of her lipstick isn’t too dark for a small, bright town. Kara always compares her to a flower—and it’s not because she’s delicate or fragile—but because she's “the type to bounce back every spring, no matter how harsh the winter,” and it makes Lena’s knees weak when she says it.

    Kara Danvers is a tall drink of flannel and wood chips and callused hands from worn rubber on tools and doing her own handiwork. Kara Danvers let’s Lena rest her head on her shoulder when she finds her mother’s house in a million broken pieces, let’s Lena slur unfair names at her and dances Lena upright when she’s had too much to drink at the bar.

    Because Kara Danvers can fix her house, and her problems, and promise her the moon and stars and actually mean it. Because Kara Danvers is dangerous, in the worst way, really, since she promises something good, and makes Lena actually believe it.

     

    OR, the one where Lena loses herself in a small town, and finds Kara Danvers in the process.

    Summary

    Kara adjusting to Earth, her awkward first days of high school, starting to make friends, getting to know her family, and learning to control her powers. Taking a job at the nearby Luthor ranch she finds a safe haven from the loud, chaotic days at school. She’s just getting her feet under her when the Luthor’s beautiful, spoiled daughter returns from boarding school and turns Kara’s world upside down. After an intense affair over a holiday break, Lena and Kara are forced to go their separate ways. Both women eventually go on to colleges on opposite coasts, other relationships, and careers. Though Kara moves on with her life, her experience with Lena haunts her and derails her fate of following in Clark's footsteps into the newspaper business and secret life as a superhero. Will the women find their way back together? Will Kara still become Supergirl?

    Summary

    Lexa is 95% certain that the girl that comes into her coffee shop each morning is a witch. Whether it’s the tattoos that she swears move when she sees them out of the corner of her eye or the way the girl’s hair changes color if she looks long enough (not that she’s staring), Lexa is positive something strange is going on.
