    Summary

    Sterling knows it’s bordering on, like, fully being a stalker, but some nights she sees the light flick on in April’s room and wonders if April’s up there thinking of her. Some nights she sees the light flick off and she really really wonders if April is thinking of her. If April lays in the dark of her room and pictures Sterling in her bed with her, if she pictures the same thing Sterling does almost every night.

    She sits in her car and she thinks and she wonders and she wishes and she hopes and she wants.

    And then she drives home.

    Summary

    Thanks to Red Daughter being an innocent Kaznian puppy over Lena, I caught all the feels and this scene popped into my head.

    Set after 'House of L' it is canon compliant up until then as far as my brain will let me remember.

    Lames is done and I don't care how the writers portray it from now on LAMES IS DEAD!!!

    **********

    It has been a week since Lex's manipulation of Lena led to the reveal of Red Daughter to the world when Lena has an unexpected visitor.

    Summary

    Kara supposes that like most superheroes, even villains have their own (not so) secret identities to retreat to during the day. As disturbing as that thought is.

    Though, in knowing that however, certainly does not prepare her with the mental fortitude for running into any of them out of working – or should she say, hero – hours.

    In the midst of reining in her surprise, Kara inwardly wonders if there’s a standard proper protocol somewhere for running into the little sister of her cousin’s greatest nemesis at some run-of-the-mill supermarket in town.

    Or.

    Even in a universe where Lex Luthor runs rampant and free, and Lena inevitably sides with her family, Kara has never once stopped believing that she is nothing but good.

    Summary

    I always loved the way that Kara Danvers and Supergirl were clearly both just two sides of the same Kara. Neither was a persona, a cover, or a performance. And I wanted a story where both Kara and Red K Kara were simply two parts of Kara. So this story happened. A story where everyday Kara and Red K Kara are two sides of Kara who end up fighting and then integrating.

    Kara finds Red K while fully overwhelmed living in a dystopian National City overrun by an anti-alien hate movement and decides to keep it. All hell breaks loose. And Red K Kara rather shakes up Kara's relationship with Lena...

    After the Kara / Red K Kara tension resolves, the Super / Luthor tension fully takes over. And Kara has to quest for that OTP endgame status with Lena. Lena Luthor's character feels so individuated from being the derivative, sister version of Lex Luthor that I felt that she would be far more complimented by a flipped version of Lex who was instead derived from Katie's version of her character. So this is a different Lex... a Lex who is Lena's brother, through and through.
