    Summary

    Alfred Lord Tennyson said it best, ‘Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all’ but love had its sacrifices, and Lena Luthor’s love was going to kill her.

    OR

    The Hanahaki Disease AU

    Or

    It takes nearly dying for Lena Luthor to admit her love for Kara Danvers, and it takes seeing Lena dying for Kara to realise that she doesnt want to live in a world without Lena knowing she feels the same way.

    Summary

    “Lena. It’s not just about football.” Kara waved her hands around emphatically, “It’s about school spirit and hanging out with your friends—“ Lena didn’t want to bring up the fact that she didn’t have any friends to hang out with. “—and watching me obliterate a bunch of guys’ egos and going out for celebratory Big Belly Burger afterwards.”

    Summary

    “Are we… are we okay?”

    “We’re stuck in a nuclear apocalypse, likely a result of my father’s gross negligence, and now used as a playground for an egomaniac’s deranged, power fantasies.”

    “Lena.” Her name is a slow sigh. A patient, painstakingly fragile one at that.

    Lena closes her eyes, inhaling against the torrent of emotions fighting towards a surface she’s not ready to break.

    “Us being stuck here together doesn’t change anything.”

    ---

    Or, Kara and Lena find themselves stranded on a barren Earth where they are forced to work together to survive and finally confront the toxic wasteland their relationship has become.

    Summary

    It isn’t The Wizard of Oz that pierces through whatever walls Kara has placed around her heart, nor is it Singing In The Rain, or even West Side Story. No, it’s Oklahoma! that blindsides her, leaves her sobbing into her throw pillow until her voice disappears and she’s too exhausted to move to her bed.

    She can’t figure out why a story set in the time of farmhands and cowboys could make her think of Lena in any way until she rewatches it.

    And oh. Oh, she finally gets it now.

    Kara hears the words being sung and is reminded of the fact that after everything, Lena still doesn’t have the full story.

    Lena had accused her of having ulterior motives, of wanting to be close to her out of selfishness, of being too cowardly to ever take a real leap of faith. She isn’t all that wrong. Kara’s alter ego may be out in the open now for Lena to see, but that doesn’t mean Kara isn’t still hiding behind some lies.

    The fact that she’s fallen in love with Lena Luthor accidentally along the way is the only secret she’s got left.

     

    AKA, Kara watches an old movie, realizes what's been in front of her this whole time, and somehow, finds her way back to where her heart has made its home.
