    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

    “Look, can I ask you something? It’s your birthday so I don’t know if you’ve set any boundaries on hook-ups but…”

    “Hooking up?” And then Adora just can’t stop, “Oh, no, I’m not hooking up. I mean. I have, but not now. Not, uh, a thing I do really. Um...yeah.”

    Catra is kind enough to try to hold back her smile.

    “Well, you just made this super awkward,” she breathes out. “I was gonna ask if your friend was single. You're hot and all. But every word out of your mouth has been a total bummer, not gonna lie.”

    Adora has died and gone to lesbian hell. She always knew it would come to this.
    __

    Adora Gray's life is on track, just the way she likes it – ever steady, no surprises. And then Catra Morgan crashes her birthday party and turns everything upside down by dating her best friend Glimmer and making Adora fall for her.

    That's fine! Adora is not panicked at all, thank you very much. She has some detailed, multi-step plans to ignore her growing feelings and navigate this all. But Catra, and her past, have a pesky tendency of showing up and throwing everything for a loop.

    Summary

    Adora's fine with Glimmer lip singing over her vocals. She's fine with Shadow Weaver's constant nagging to take over as the lead singer. She’s fine being the backup vocalist and playing her bass. She’s completely fine with everything.

    Not being able to make out with the drummer?

    Not as fine.

    Summary

    Coping with her stressful studies on the way to certification as a physiotherapist, Adora has fallen into a local community theatre as a way to have fun and make new friends. She's made a place for herself there and everything is going great when she lands one of the lead roles of their newest play - until she shows up to the first rehearsal and the person cast in the role of her romantic opposite is Catra, who she hasn't seen since the breakup eight years ago when she left Catra behind to move across the country for a soccer scholarship.

    But there's no denying the obvious chemistry between them when they get on stage, and the director won't hear of anybody else playing the roles.
