    Summary

    With both their commanding officers gone, the remnants of Catra's old squad find themselves turning to an unlikely ally: Entrapta.

    Entrapta doesn't understand much about the rumours which now follow her (they are numerous and explicit) or the power structure of the Horde (which she's openly flaunting) but she'll never turn down a chance to make some useful friends.

    Summary

    Catra remembers her own sleepless nights and violent rages—the scratches she gouged in Adora’s bedding, the shriek of claws against metal as she defaced the silly sketch they had drawn together. She remembers lying awake for hours each night, unacknowledged tears leaking from her eyes as Adora’s scent slowly faded from her life. She takes a deep breath, filling herself up to banish the memories. Adora loves her. Adora stayed.

    ---

    In the aftermath of Horde Prime's demise, Catra struggles to integrate into Etherian society as she and Adora explore their newfound relationship. Featuring major cuddles, minor angst, therapy, a surprise character development for Catra, and sweetly awkward fumblings toward physical intimacy. This fic also includes a few minor references to @Annacharlier's "Don't Go," which is canon as far as we all know, and to Noelle and Molly's amazing #BLM livestream. <3

    Summary

    Adora scoffs with the end of the clean bandage between her teeth. The first layer of gauze is already soaked, her blood spreading like a crimson spider web.
    "Well, you're not gonna kill her," Adora grumbles, curling another layer of the bandage on her arm. Her eyes meet with Catra's over the still flickering embers. "We took the job, not you."
    "Do you think I give a fuck about you and your shitty team?" Catra asks, scrunching her nose as she watches Adora struggle. "You're so bad at this."
    "I'm not," Adora says, her voice growing high. "It's just harder to do it for yourself."
    Catra unfolds her crossed legs and slides closer to her. Adora can feel the warmth oozing from her body, and the scent of her skin is so sweet under the smell of oil and dirt.
    "Let me, idiot."
    Adora does. Her attention is solely on Catra's face - the arch of her brows and her slightly parted lips with the tiny pink tip of her tongue visible.
    Catra glances up, catching Adora staring. Neither of them looks away.
    Catra says, with a palm warm on Adora's arm and her voice low: "It's personal. I won't let you have her."
    Adora swallows thickly.
    "I can't let you do that. It's personal for me, too."
