“Perhaps ye haven’t noticed, bird, but every blossom in Skellige’s got a healthy set of thorns.”
“I’ll keep that in mind when I go picking any.”
“You’re a herbalist now?”
“Witchers need potions.”
“Witchers seem to need a great deal of things. More than most humans, I’ve heard.” The queen smirks. “In fact, I was once told by a very reliable source that they only seek out the most powerful women.”
Ciri may or may not be blushing. “I don’t know about that.”
Cerys is getting to her feet, all the furs pulled around her like a cape. She gives Ciri a look over her shoulder before going to the door. “Ah, but I think you do, bird.”
the tale of the sparrowhawk and her swallow.
"I do not know your daughter’s name. In our tongue, we call her the shatterer of spears, the walker between two worlds.”
“Look, this is all very Game of Thrones, but I really don’t think--”
“She is born of the queen in your world. Or, she will be. In the coming summer, before the blood runs over the moon.” Anna pauses, seems to be waiting for Emma to catch up. “Do you understand now?”

because every tropefest needs a christmas episode.
a sequel to a million tiny little things set six years later, right in the middle of the holiday season.
This is what you get for doing the nice thing, Emma thinks. You do that whole Pay It Forward bullshit - you buy a lady some coffee and you pretend like it isn’t totally motivated by how she looks in a pencil skirt - and she goes and insults your business card and turns out to be your company’s new Executive Director. Real fucking cute.
From now on, she is drinking tea.
or, the one where they're in an office.
emma is a vigilante with super powers. regina is a district attorney with (secret) super powers. theirs is a darker, grittier superhero story.
It's platonic. Just business. All pretend. Kara's always been good at pretend. Why would dating Cat Grant be any different?
