    Summary

    Kara and Lena used to date in college before Kara got a job and the distance and lack of time broke them up amicably but painfully.  Years later, they meet again when Lena is being interviewed by Clark Kent, not knowing that Kara was the intern mentioned as the person joining the meeting to observe Clark interviewing Lena.  Kara wasn’t prepared to meet Lena in an all professional setting but what she was even less prepared for was Lena dating someone else.  Jack Spheer.  Kara hadn’t really tried dating anyone else other than a very brief two dates with Mon-El before deciding no one could ever compare to Lena and leaving it at that.  Until now.  Kara’s world falls apart after that meeting because Jack had been there visiting Lena before Clark and Kara came for the interview and it was obvious they were happy together.  Superpowers were not always a positive.

    Summary

    Kara tried. Since she landed on Earth, she tried to be the hero the world needed, but after countless battles, sacrifices, and betrayals, a disillusioned and suicidal Kara forges on towards her dimmed future as Supergirl, wondering when it will all end.


    Kara was a soldier of Krypton, born and bred to protect her world from harm, much like her aunt, Astra In-Ze before Krypton's destruction. When Superman was killed on her Earth, she vowed to protect it by becoming the soldier it needed as Galatea.

    But when her Earth was destroyed by the Heralds of Xenon, lead by the Superior Ultragirl and Metallo, the beaten heroine Galatea finds herself in Newfoundland on a different Earth, unconscious at the feet of Supergirl's former best friend, Lena Luthor.


    Can the hearts of these two broken Kryptonians heal and can they heal before the Heralds of Xenon sets their sights on this new Earth? And who will be the ones to fix them?

    Summary

    "I- I just-" Something swirls in her stomach, alcohol or a spark of anger, she isn't sure, but it makes her feel nauseated. "I just don't wanna be like that."

    "Like what ?" Lena probs, still terribly gentle.

    "Like that," Kara repeats, gesticulating wildly. The back of her hand catches against the glass and sends it flying. It crashes and breaks with a clean sharp sound somewhere in a far corner of the room. "Like me ! I don't want to be me !"

    "But I like you," Lena says.

    "Well I don't," Kara snaps, "like myself."

    OR

    Set after 616, Lena seeks Kara after she's quit CatCo only to find that Kara has finally reached her breaking point.

    Summary

    Post-Season 2

    Several months after the Daxamite invasion, Kara is readjusting to life. Lilian Luthor was finally behind bars and the world seemed to finally be at peace.

    Except it wasn't that way in her head.

    Something was bothering her.

    No, not something.

    She knew what it was.

    Yet, she didn't.

    It was all so frustrating. She hated feeling helpless, yet here she was, helpless. Could you blame her, though? It was one disaster after the other.

    Alex's kidnapping, and not too long after, she lost her boyfriend.

    She was drowning in her own fears.

    And she couldn't save herself.
