    Summary

    In 2010, The Horde managed to take complete control of Etheria and made its way to find other planets to conquer.

    Gaining alliances, they took over Earth and various other planets, forcing anyone they see into submission.

    Horde Prime managed to take over Heaven and Hell.

    The Exterminators are able to roam Hell freely.

    Etheria's Princesses have been enslaved.

    Hell's Royalty has been slain.

    Rebellions, riots, protests, ended within minutes.

    They're stealing the freedom of the majority.

    It seems nobody can stand up to them.

     

     

    Until now.

     

    Heavily based on Wolfenstein.

    Summary

    Adora's one goal is to rescue Glimmer and Bow after Catra captured them at Princess Prom. She's reviewed this plan with the Princesses so everything should work the way they intended. She gives herself over to Shadow Weaver, knowing it will get her to where Glimmer is. However, things don't always turn out how you planned. Catra makes a choice no one is ready for, least of all, her. Setting events in motion no one could have forseen.

    Summary

    Catra ends up with the sword. Everything is different from that point on.

    (Or: an abused child finds a sword and a new home, a new people, and a new family, and rises above all things to become a legend.)

    Summary

    The world is broken, desperate for salvation. The princesses are tyrants, holding Etheria in an iron grip. The Horde's cause is just, but the leadership has sinister plans. As Adora learns more and more about her true nature and her people's heritage, she draws closer to the inevitable conclusion that she is destined to rule.

    --------------

    “You’re such a smartass,” Glimmer sneered as her hand began to glow, “you need to learn some respect, before you mouth off to the wrong person and-”

    For the first time in the argument, Adora took action, stepping between Glimmer and Catra with a cold look in her eyes.

    “Don’t talk to Catra like that,” she growled in a tone so low it surprised her, the temperature of the room dropping a few degrees as people whipped their heads around at the dangerous sound.

    For a moment, the threat worked. Glimmer snapped her mouth shut, and the fire in her eyes died down. But just as quickly, it reignited twice as bright, and she took a step toward Adora, now nearly touching her.

    “Or what?”

    She jutted her chin up at Adora, completely unafraid even as Adora towered over her.

    “What are you going to do about it?”

    Summary

    Shadow Weaver succeeds in wiping Adora’s mind of the past few months up to the moment when she became Force Captain with Catra and her squad by her side.

    When Adora comes to, she finds it hard to ignore how much has changed between her and Catra from how ever long she’s been out of it.

    Summary

    Adora finds the sword the first time she's in the whispering woods, and Adora returns safely with it to the Horde. On a related note, Shadow-Weaver has no need for Catra anymore, and her assassination attempt strands her in Rebellion custody, under the watchful eye of Queen Angella.

    It goes pretty poorly for everyone involved after that.

    CW: Non canon typical bloodshed, death. Darker world, exploration of propaganda, Shadow Weaver is a bitch. Canon typical abuse patterns. Shadow Weaver is a bitch. Self harming and self destructive behaviors. Self devaluation. Increasingly deviating from canon. Not a 1 for 1 canon rewrite.

    Summary

    You all know the twist. Two Horde cadets, one recently made a Force Captain, the other destined to be left behind, “borrow” a skiff and go for a joyride. Instead of Adora, Catra is the one who falls, the one who finds the Sword, the one burdened with a destiny meant for another.

    This is not that story.

    When Catra reached her sixteenth birthday (not that the Horde tells her what that is), Shadow Weaver takes Catra’s first life. What happens next changes the fate of Etheria...

    Summary

    Catra gets more of a ride than she bargains for when a supply run has an over-packed skiff forcing her to take up a seat on Adora's lap. Rogelio's poorly timed off-road shortcut just makes matters more deliciously worse.

    Summary

    There are moments that define us, moments that are inscribed into us, our histories, in detail both meticulous and blurred. Moments that wrench our world away and leave something else in the ragged void.
    For Catra, that moment is the discovery of the sword, and its fallout is what comes to define her.
    For Adora, that moment is when the person who has dominated her life’s direction lies to her and she can’t rationalize it away anymore.

    Or-

    Adora stays up late working on paperwork after getting back from Thaymor. This is a problem for everyone.

    Summary

    A small alteration, a few words different. Adora finds the Sword slightly earlier, and everything changes. Bow and Glimmer are too late, Adora stays with the Horde, but must still grapple with the slow realisation that they are not what she thought that they were. Without She-Ra on their side, Glimmer has to take up the mantle of hero in the Rebellion's darkest hour, and be the one to bring hope even when she finds all hopeless. As events butterfly, the story of She-Ra becomes quite different.

    Summary

    How much can a person change if a single event in their life is altered? ....

    Since Catra was never abducted by the Horde, Adora grew up with no one able to protect her from Shadow Weaver's influence.
    So she never learned about real and unconditional love from another person, and she was seduced by ideas of empty greatness and the lust for power just as the woman whose raise her.

    Summary

    Adora was raised in the ranks of the Horde. She believed their mission was just and would unchain the shackles of all Etherians. How could she have fallen for a lie so obvious for so long. She believed in the cause it as Shadow Weaver tortured her best friend. She believed in the cause as Catra defected the Horde and became the legendary warrior "She-Ra". She believed in the cause even as she pulled the switch and ended reality.

    No longer would she fall sway to the whims of petty tyrants. A great evil was on its way, alerted by the portals activation. Hordak was evil yes. But if she seized command, maybe, just maybe, she could wield the Horde for good, and save Etheria from destruction. Maybe, if successful, Adora could rebuild her relationship with the person she cared for most on this planet.
