    Summary

    I recently had the pleasure of visiting Emily Dickinson's house, where a bought a book of letters she wrote to Susan. Between the book and Vita and Virginia, my mind is filled with the enchanting letters exchanged by women in the 18th/early 19th centuries, and that was fertile ground for this odd little fic to be born.

    The structure is a bit different. Each chapter will be a letter from either Clarke or Lexa, with occasional comments from our Heteronormitavely Blinded Historian™. So chapters will be short and provide little snippets into their lives, rather than the full story. I hope that you, like me, will enjoy letting your mind wander where it will. Not really sure where this journey will take us but pretty stoked to experiment with this kind of writing. I hope a few of you enjoy it too.

    Shoutout to the lovely @anddante for letting me ramble about my convoluted ideas.

    Disclaimer: I've included some dates to provide an idea of the timeline, but this is set in a purely imaginary world with its own towns, politics, and wars. I have made no attempt to reconcile them with actual historical events. I am going for the style and general feel this era had to it, not historical accuracy.

    Summary

    “I don’t need you anymore,” Catra says coldly.

    “I don’t care,” replies Adora. Her voice wavers for a moment, and then steadies. “We’re the only two people on this entire planet.”

    Summary

    She’s double-checking her locker to make sure she hasn’t forgotten anything when a voice from behind her says, “Hey, Adora.”

    Every nerve in Adora’s body sparks. The voice is impossible—subtly raspy, teasing, familiar.

    (Four years after Adora moves away, Catra walks into the University of Bright Moon gym locker room and back into Adora's life. Some things have changed: Catra's hair is short now, they both go to therapy, Adora has a tattoo. Some things—Adora's hair poof, Catra's laugh, the magnetic draw between them that only grows stronger the closer they get to each other—are still the same.)
