    Summary

    They meet on a Friday, which is the perfect day for a life to change.

    Fridays are always wrought with happy anticipation. They taste like freedom and have the unmistakable shimmer of potential. They’re deviations from the norm -- a cheat day gift wrapped at the end of a hard week. They’re pizza parties and happy hours and staying out late. Even for Lena Luthor, a Friday is a more hopeful occasion than any other day in her little life.

    OR

    Kara and Lena meet as children and grow up together; a series in 8 parts up through present day (+ Epilogue). Lena's POV. Pre-canon, then following canon themes with my own spin/twist :) NOT a strict retelling of any season but you'll recognize lines, and characters, and other easter eggs. Slowburn, but there are treats within. Happy ending because I am NOT a monster and Lena Luthor deserves better. You'll just have to be patient with me ;)

    Summary

    It's commonly said that too much wine can have perilous consequences, which Lena Luthor learns, but not in the way she'd anticipated.

    Summary

    Kara’s already having a shit day.

    It even started off bad – she woke up late, nearly forgot her glasses, dropped her morning bagel on the ground and spilled her coffee on her favorite shirt. And then she just fought an alien with a cold so her super-suit has weird blue gunk stuck to it from when he sneezed on her. Three times in a row.

    This is all to explain why, when she flies through the window of her apartment, slips out of her super-suit, turns on the light, and sees her arch-nemesis and resident evil-nerd-who-tried-to-kill-her, Lena Luthor, sitting on her couch—she barely blinks an eye.

    Lena, however, scowls at her in that way she does and says, “If you tell anyone I’m here, I’ll tell the world Supergirl moonlights as a second-rate reporter.”

     

    Or the one where Lena's a criminal and Kara loses every argument she tries to have.
