    Summary

    We lie there on the newborn grass, gazing up at the sky, my head on her chest as her heart beats. Bow and Glimmer left a while ago, frantically shushing each other as they tried to avoid waking either of us up. Not that we were asleep.
    None of it feels real. Not the grass beneath me, not the sky above me, and definitely not the woman beside me. I try to stop the thought, but it’s too late. My body tenses, reacting to my sudden fear. My fear that this isn’t real, that I’m back. With him. That he’s still tormenting me, taunting me with dreams I didn’t even know I had, digging deeper, tearing me apart piece by piece, gloating as he uses the most precious parts of me to do it.

    or

    all the fairly horrifying shit that happened to Catra during season 5 (and the rest the show tbh) catches up to her after the Heart. but hey this time she's got friends to help her, even if she doesn't get why.

    or

    i found Don't Go after my 6th (7th?) rewatch of the show and couldn't write anything else until this happened. yes i know Don't Go is not technically canon but... come on.

    Summary

    “Catra?”
    She didn’t even realize she was holding Adora’s hand like it was her lifeline. She didn’t even realize she was crying.
    “What’s wrong?”
    Catra looked at her, really looked at her, and said softly, “I’m not happy. I haven’t been happy in my entire life.”

     

    Just a bunch of drabbles and shitty poems I wrote about Catra and regarding Catra. Lots of little oneshots that I thought were worth posting.

    Summary

    Victory against Horde Prime. Against all odds, they won. Love won. In the moment, Adora thought she'd found peace with She-Ra. She thought she figured it out and could move past war--both around her and within her. But with constant reminders of the events at the Heart and the War, immediate work to do in rebuilding Etheria, and whisperings of underground Horde loyalist factions still striving to carry out Prime's will, Adora, Catra, Bow, and Glimmer are forced to face destruction, buried remembrances, and open wounds on their path to a new beginning for Etheria and the larger universe.
    A declaration of love freed the Heart, it didn't magically heal away every single wound.
    ---
    tldr--We pick up with the Best Friends Squad where we left off at the end of s5:
    - Adora + Catra try to navigate what their lives are outside of war
    - Glimmer takes another shot at being a ruler
    - Bow buddies with Catra (and is so perceptive and supportive)
    - Unrest after the War
    - And a non-healing wound
    Post-war Etheria definitely isn't as peaceful as they thought it would be. Not externally. And definitely not internally.

    Summary

    After the war, Etheria needed to heal, its citizens included. The Princesses began to rebuild crumbling kingdoms and took steps together to ensure the safety and peace of the planet. Catra struggled with this idea. Without a war, she had nothing to distract her mind from all the pain she caused. She blamed herself for everything wrong in Etheria. Adora wanted to help however she could, but Catra wouldn't tell her what she needed. Not until now.
    Catra was sick of feeling Prime's control. She wanted Adora to control her.
    (Previously known as Control Me, Adora. I thought of a better title.)

    Summary

    "This year has been the hardest of your whole life. So hard you cannot see a future, most days. The pain is bigger than anything else.Takes up the whole horizon, no matter where you are. You feel unsafe, you feel unsaved. Your past so present you can feel your baby teeth. Sitting on the couch, you swear your feet don't reach the floor."
    - "Angels of The Get-Through", by Andrew Gibson.

    Adora left the Home a week after her eighteenth birthday in search of a life where she didn't have to hide who she was. But despite having braved a whole new world and built a life all of her own, she still has regrets. One of those regrets is leaving her best friend behind.

    When Catra calls her on the burner phone hidden in her bag, Adora jumps at the prospect of a new beginning. But healing isn't easy, and Catra has demons of her own to conquer. She can't do it alone.

    A story about growth, healing, and learning to live again after living your whole life in the shadows of an abusive cult.

    Summary

    Horde Prime has fallen.

    They're safe.

    But Catra's never felt so out of place.

    Scars from her childhood resurfacing, being surrounded by princesses. It's too much sometimes.

    But Adora's there to help her up every time, as is everyone else -for the most part- and it's something Catra isn't used to.

    The real task at hand is getting the feline to accept the help being offered to her, even if she knows she needs it.

    She knows she needs help, and so does everyone else, so they've tried to help her, for the most part. So why does it still feel like there's no options left for her, like she's still at a dead end no matter how long she runs in the opposite direction.

    Her demons aren't going to disappear, she knows that. But everyone here can help her rid herself of them, and she thinls she may just have to take them up on that.

    After all, she can't just leave Adora all on her own again, can she now? (She dosen't think she can ever leave Adora again)
