    Summary

    “If you were, in fact, asking me on a date,” Lena said slowly, running the petal along her lips again and Kara wondered if she was being hypnotised, “I’m afraid I’d have to decline.”
    Kara nodded blankly, watching the white petal tips slowly darken to the plum of Lena’s lipstick.

    “Do you know why?” She asked with sin falling from her lips and Kara just nodded, eyes on Lena’s lips as they parted sweetly. She was close now, so close that Kara would be able to count her lashes, if she could peel her eyes from the lips peeking into a smile.

    “I’m in love with someone else.” She admitted, and Kara could feel the joy those words gave her, the pure happiness the person she was speaking of brought to her. Whoever she was speaking of brought her to life.

    OR:

    The Media catch Supergirl giving Lena Luthor flowers and decide the two are dating. It's all a big misunderstanding. After all, a Luthor and a Super?

    Summary

    ‘I’m getting married,’ Lena breathes emphatically, entreatingly, and her attention snaps to like a band pulled taut. She watches with increasingly disaffected pliancy as Lena seizes both her hands in one of her own and flashes her left at her, right under her nose. ‘Say something,’ Lena laughs, a little too breathless, a little too conscious. ‘You’re making me nervous.’

    Don’t, she thinks she could’ve said, and the vehemence of the very thought startles her. Why? is a little better, syntactically, in theory—less cruel, an open question, room for conversation. Really? is enthusiastic, breakwater, appropriate, adequate.

    ‘Oh, god,’ she says instead.

    Or, alternatively:

    In which Lena announces her engagement, to everyone’s immense horror and Kara’s heartbroken disbelief, and everything that follows after.

    Summary

    Lena has been hunting Lex for a century. There is no room for distraction, and she definitely isn't distracted by a peppy blonde in the sorority she is currently using as a cover to get closer to her brother. Definitely, definitely not.

    Summary

    “We got Supergirl’s mail again,” a voice calls from behind a massive, unidentifiable sculpture as it steps through the door. He sets the piece down just as the words leave his mouth, and then the dark-haired boy spins to face you, hand outstretched to drop a letter onto the countertop, and he breathes, “Oh, fuck.”

    You look toward your new roommates, and register the panic on their faces. “Wait,” you say, but your mind is jumping to conclusions that your mouth is far too embarrassed to vocalize, so you find that you don’t have any follow-up. “Are you--” you start, but you know it’s true even before you ask. “Seriously?”

    Summary

    Lena Luthor is going to die.

    She’s going to die very soon and she’s going to do it right here on the road to god-knows-where, Colorado, her hands still clutching the wheel of this foul-smelling rental car, buried under five feet of snow for the remainder of the season until some fortunate family of possums digs her up in spring, probably. (Do they have possums in the mountains?)

    But before she dies, she’s going to kill Sam Arias.

     -

    In which Lena Luthor hates the winter holidays, until her best friend lures her to her cabin in the mountains where she's promptly held hostage by a very well-timed snowstorm and the irresistible charms of unexpected guest Kara Danvers. (But Lena will literally kill a man before admitting to that last part.)
