    Summary

    They hadn’t had any time alone over the past two weeks, as Adora’s husband was uncharacteristically present. Adora resumed her duties as his housewife and property. Catra resumed her duties as Finn’s full-time nanny, hired by Mr. Hope to keep an eye on his child and wife.

    Adora gently stopped Catra’s head with her hand, running a thumb over her cheekbone. “I missed you,” she whispered.

    “I’m right here,” Catra promised, delighting in Adora’s sharp cry at the first flick of Catra’s tongue.

    Catra was keeping an eye on her - just not in the way her husband had intended upon her employment.

    Title from the song "Be My Baby" by The Ronettes.

    Summary

    Gabrielle had pleaded, and argued, and persisted until Xena finally told her to either fuck off or meet the pointy end of her sword.

    Gabrielle took another gamble. She called Xena’s bluff.

    Gabrielle wasn’t sure who was more surprised when she did it. They were both stunned into silence, and for half a second Xena’s glacial eyes had thawed, and Gabrielle saw a bone-tired weariness through the mask of stone. And then Xena sheathed her sword and agreed to Gabrielle’s terms.

    Xena would get the young bard to the crossroads outside Athens, and from there, they would part.

    --OR--

    A what-if AU where Gabrielle stays at the Academy of the Bards and Xena goes her own way. Six years later, Xena returns to Athens, bloodied and up on the auction block. Gabrielle leverages her success and position to protect her one-time friend, but how safe can either of them really be when Caeser comes to town?

    Summary

    Some hide in shadows, covering themselves in thorns for protection. Others hide in plain sight, and let the brightness of flower petals distract from what lies beneath.

    Blake and Yang grew up living completely different lives. One was surrounded by people while the other spent most of her time in solitude, but who's to say they can't find some common ground?
