    Summary

    The thing is, Helena has no idea what comes after.

    The past fifteen years, she’s had a singular goal. She's never given any thought to what she’d do once she killed the men who murdered her family in front of her.

    Maybe, Helena realizes, she never actually thought she’d make it this far.

    ---

    In which Helena Bertinelli joins a team, buys a cactus, beats up criminals, goes to church, bakes bread, and falls in love.

    (Not necessarily in that order.)

    Summary

    “I’ve got to meet with a few people first, but I’ll see both of you later,” Lena said, punching the floor number and squeezing Sam’s arm encouragingly. 

    “Will you be meeting with Doctor Danvers before our appointment?”

    Shrugging, Lena arched an eyebrow at Sam as a smile dimpled her cheek, “I don’t know who’s going to be there, although I am intrigued by why you’re so eager for me to meet this doctor.”

    Summary

    “Everyone on this show has an agenda, Kara.”

    She regarded the blonde with a quirked eyebrow and asked, “What’s yours?”

    “I- I- I um-” Kara brought her right hand up to the bridge of her nose, froze when she found nothing there, then awkwardly dropped her hand to her side. “To… find… love?”

    “Right. Love. You’re here to find it, I’m here to help you.” Lena paused. “Kind of.”

    “Well, that sounds ominous.”

    ***

    A supercorp/the Bachelorette AU with Unreal undertones.

    Featuring Kara Danvers as the worst Bachelorette ever and Lena Luthor as a producer who's just trying to save Kara from the show.

    Summary

    “So?” Alex prompts.

    Kara looks up from the styrofoam container, already having broken apart her chopsticks. “So what?”

    “What do you mean so wha—Kara!” Kara freezes, chopsticks hanging in midair clutching a piece of kung pao chicken. There is real frustration and confusion in Alex’s voice. “Imagine my surprise when I sign in at the front desk and the nurse says that my sister-in-law is stable right now. Wanna tell me why you’re playing house to visit your best friend in the hospital?”

    Kara sets the chicken down. “Alex…”

    “Kara, you have ten seconds to explain why the entire staff thinks you and Lena are married and the answer had better not actually involve marriage or I swear to god I’ll…”

    ____________

    In which Kara is a whole entire idiot, Alex is a permanent mood, and Lena is just glad Kara is there for her, as her fake wife, while she recovers from another quarterly attempt on her life.

    Summary

    “Okay. What’s your name?”

    Lena’s response is knee-jerk. “None of your damn business.”

    Supergirl runs her fingers through her hair again, and this time it comes out a little worse for wear – it sticks up wildly near her temple, and Lena can see a slight cowlick. It’s strangely humanizing.

    “Look, my boss isn’t going to like that I’m working with an unknown as it is. If we’re going to work together, I at least need something to call you.”

    When Lena shakes Supergirl’s hand, she feels the warmth of victory when the hero seems shocked at the firmness of her grip. But alarmingly an even stronger warmth radiates from their joined palms, spreading up her arm, and Lena pulls her hand back faster than what’s generally considered polite, curling it into a fist.

    “You can call me Kieran.”

    OR

    For over a hundred years, Lena has been trying to escape the suffocating hierarchy of the fae – and ever since her mother moved LuthorCorp to National City the only way to do so is to work with Supergirl, with whom Lena shares a soul-deep connection she can’t control.

    What’s a vampire to do?
