    Summary

    It's not the first time they find themselves like this: Catra on the ground, Adora standing above her, the tip of her sword dangerously close to Catra’s throat. Catra thinks she prefers it when Adora kills her without hesitation. But lately, Adora’s been slower to strike her. Catra can't figure out why.

    "Why hesitate?" Catra asks. "I mean, you can't kill me. Not for good. What's stopping you, Adora?"

    Adora doesn't answer her, just stares at Catra with those piercingly beautiful eyes of hers, as if she looks hard enough, Catra will surrender.

    But Catra won't. She lost count of how many times they've killed each other a long time ago, and she's not going to go soft now, not after Dryl has held their ground against Eternia, not when they're this close to finally defeating the Eternians for good.

    Summary

    In the passing of two millennia Lexa bore witness to mortals in all their frailties and tyrannies and glories, their capacity for greatness and predisposition to selfishness and greed.

    Their great beauty, too.

    And in this moment, there are none lovelier than the woman in salmon pink scrubs currently blocking the exit to the refrigerated storage room and threatening to summon hospital security if Lexa doesn’t relinquish those two bags of O Negative.

    Or:

    That cracky vampire au.

    Summary

    Plenty had changed by the time Ellie showed up at the fateful dance that kicked off Part II. In Jackson, Ellie grew up, fell in and out of love, weathered lies and betrayal, and got a little older, a little more jaded.

    This is that story.

    Rated T except for part of chapters 20 and 26.

    Summary

    “Why are you here?” Adora asks.

    Catra steps in close, gratified when Adora takes a shaky step back and then another, til her back is up against the wall of the gym. “Would you believe that I missed you?”

    --

    When Adora transfers from Horde Academy to Bright Moon Prep in their final year of high school, she and Catra pretty much stop talking. Until they don't.
