    Summary

    "Lena," Kara asks, "what are you to me?"

    Lena's heartbeat stutters. "You—you said there was no memory loss," she stammers. "Kara, what—what happened?"

    "I absorbed my sun," Kara tells her calmly. "I became a God."

     

    (In which Kara becomes a deity of protection, and it complicates things just a little. Featuring: a determined big sister, an endlessly supportive love interest, and some dad advice.)

    Summary

    “Please,” Lena says, shrugging her shoulders. “You know you’re my favourite. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. You’re my favourite. You’re acting like this is brand new information.”

    And that's—

    Wow. To hear Lena say this, to know that this still holds true even after everything that has happened… Kara flushes. She fiddles with her belt, exhales softly.

    or Lena is a terrible enabler. Kara wants anything and everything Lena will give her, and underneath the weight of such gentle, earnest warmth, it keeps escaping Kara why that is dangerous.

    Summary

    Lena is a certified genius, with three degrees, a PhD, and a fortune 500 company to run. She’s smart, and she’s not ashamed to admit it.

    There are things she is ashamed to admit though. Things she wishes she didn’t know, that threaten to disrupt the more or less comfortable life she has worked so hard to build for herself.

    She has an amazing career, a beautiful home, a few good friends, and a loving boyfriend who has his own life and doesn’t bother her too much with things she could care less about.

    Lena has everything a girl could ask for, but sometimes it feels like someone else’s life she’s living.

    Summary

    Kara is all sunshine and hope. She believes in Lena so much that sometimes she doesn’t know what to do with all that faith. So she tucks it away quietly inside her heart, letting it bloom there like the light in Kara’s eyes when she finally agrees to attend game night.

    “Yes!” Kara wraps her up in a tight hug, and Lena lets herself sink into deceptively strong arms and the smell of CatCo coffee. She presses her palms against Kara’s shoulder blades and they stand there together for a moment, Kara rocking them happily from side to side.

    It’s a novelty move for a Luthor, letting someone in.
