    Summary

    Clarke is constantly annoyed by Lexa Woods, the know-it-all who is always waving her hand in the air and correcting professors. Lexa is unimpressed with Clarke. They don't like each other but somehow end up spending time together, and things change, progress, evolve. They'll never be more than what they are because Lexa wants butterflies and Clarke doesn't give her them. Clexa without instant attraction and unfathomable lust, with expectation versus reality. A different kind of love story.

    Summary

    'Before you,' he said, 'you can see more women than warriors. Cowardly, unarmed, they will give up the moment they see the weapons and bravery of their conquerors who have given them such a drubbing so many times before.' (Tacitus, Annals XIV.36)

    The first time Clarke sees the Head Girl she’s sitting on a throne, presiding over her dominion with a piercing stare and a crown of braids in her hair. Her warriors are spread at her feet, a multitude of them, all long-haired and wild and clad in identical brown regalia. There’s something of the sacred about her, like the crimson cloak draped across her shoulders and her divinity are one and the same.

    Or at least it feels that way.

    British girls' boarding school AU. Obviously.

    Summary

    You certainly come across intriguing personalities every so often when you tend bar. None quite so intriguing as the lone girl with cascading chestnut hair sitting at the end of the bar, drinking a whiskey neat and reading a book, however.

    Except, wait, that's your new co-worker.

    or

    The College Bar AU in which Clarke is the Mom Friend bartender, Lexa is the new hire, and everyone is really just a hot damn mess. Shot of Jameson, anyone?

    Summary

    Clarke Griffin isn't the marrying type. Anything but that. Marriage, for her, is out of the question.
    And yet, through some sick and confusing twist of fate, she finds herself with a wife that she cannot recall a thing about. Hell, she doesn't even know her name.
    Alexandria Woods cannot be married. Not to anyone, and especially not to a woman.
    And yet, she is. Neither of them know how or when or why, but they're married at least on paper. And what ensues after their first (or second) meeting is a beautifully messy and eventful love story.
