    Summary

    Alex gets them the car. It’s a beat-down SUV, an ugly gold-tan color, and when Kara pops the passenger side door open, it squeaks so loudly Lena winces. She’s been wincing a lot lately; it’s a behavior that makes sense, considering her brother’s broken out of prison and has already tried to kill both of them twice. Hence the car. Hence the cash Alex shoves into Kara’s hands, along with a road map and a pained expression.

    (or, the Road Trip / On the Run AU)

    Summary

    “Now, kids. Elegies are tricky to define. They’re supposed to be about mourning the dead. So, because of the subject matter, they tend to be sad, serious pieces. Not! Not to be confused with the more formal eulogy or the very short epitaph.
    In our more contemporary times, the elegy is not used exclusively for the death of people but also used to express a more general sense of loss.
    Loss of innocence. Of home, wealth, etcetera etcetera. Note, however, that structurally, most elegies tend to end in a tone of consolation.
    Got it? Good."

    Summary

    Kara doesn’t tell her about the hologram of Alura, about the spy beacon she keeps hidden in her night stand, perpetually glowing, waiting for the touch of its twin, but she says, “Sometimes, I talk to them. My mother and her sister – my aunt. Just about my day, my job, my friends and family. It’s ...”

    “Cathartic,” Lena supplies. Kara was going to say ‘comforting’, but doesn’t correct her. “Sometimes,” Lena whispers, “I talk to Lex.”

    (Much later, Kara will think of Lex, still alive, sitting in maximum security, and wonder what Lena meant.)

    or

    A lot can happen in the space of a year; Kara and Lena know this better than most.
