    Summary

    Catra didn’t mean to get pregnant, but she can’t say it was a mistake, not when she loves her kids like this. Being a single mom is hard, and she thinks about Adora often, but she can’t ruin her best friend’s life by coming back and telling her the truth about what resulted from their one night together. Catra can get through anything as long as she has her kittens with her, even life without Adora.
    It just turns out that Adora thinks the kittens would do anything but ruin her life.

    Summary

    “Adora,” Bow calls from a few feet ahead of her, having continued on while she was cornered by a fan, thanks Bow, “come meet your co-star!” he calls. Adora looks up, making eye contact with a split gaze, and promptly drops her unwanted coffee.
    “Hey, Adora.”

    Summary

    Catra did a bad thing. A REALLY bad thing. She'd been through the ringer since. She's changed.

    Now she wants to make good, to fix the things she's broken. Can she reach the people she hurt? Should they forgive her? And what about the one she tore down the most? Is it better if she lets well alone, or should she try to rebuild that bridge?

    High School was a while ago; the world has moved on. Have the people from her past? Will her overtures be met with success, appreciation? Or just seen as too little, too late?

    A journey of forgiveness, growth and dealing with trauma.

    ---

    Another AU - want to explore the forgiveness elements Catra went through through a new lens. And also focus on an Adora who is maybe a little colder. I want to do the topic justice, as I have family and friends who have struggled with coming to terms with their sexuality. I have dealt with bigotry and judgement. Of course, any input is appreciated if anyone feels I'm not quite on point and any feedback is ALWAYS appreciated.

    WARNING - homophobia and bigotry WILL be shown in this fic. Mentions of conversion therapy, abuse and Shadow Weaver being a shitty shitty parent.

    -

    For my uncle, Paul.

    Summary

    '“Huntara asked Adora out, and she said no. She said no to the girl she’s been crushing on for a year.” Glimmer says. Her gaze follows the path Adora had taken in her haste to get away, and she frowns. “She had a major crush, and the girl finally notices her, and she says no. And when I asked her about it, she got all… weird.”

    Bow shrugs. Apparently, he doesn’t see that this is all wrong. “Maybe she just lost interest.”

    Glimmer shakes her head. No. It isn’t that simple, and she knows it. She knows how to read Adora, and she knows what she’s like when she’s lying.

    Adora is hiding something, plain and simple.

    And Glimmer is going to find out what it is.'

    or... Adora has a secret girlfriend and Glimmer is nosy.
