    Summary

    This work centers around Maggie Sawyer's estranged mother and will focus on events that might lead her back into her daughter's life. The road to reunite the two is long and difficult for sure and it starts with Florencia's return to Blue Spring following a trip in National City.

    Religion, Homophobia and Domestic Abuse of varied kind will be discussed and visited in this story. Look for each chapter's note for further warnings in each chapter.

    RECOMMENDATION: This fic can be read as a stand-alone, but be warned that I'm writing it as a companion piece to Not Forgotten specifically this happens after chapter 36. Which means there is no Sanvers and no Supercorp to be found at the end of this, only DimplesCorp (MaggiexLena) , AgentReign and Karolsen.

    Summary

    Maggie's reminded of her past and tries to hide the pain from Alex. But you can't hide anything from Alex Danvers, DEO. I'm bad at summaries but I think its good.

    Angst and hurt/comfort are in here and like there's a tiny mention of self harm if you squint??? So just be careful with that, please.

    Summary

    Lena Luthor's got a game changing secret, and she's been keeping it her whole life, so far as the Luthors are concerned. There are scenes of Lena and Alex bonding, as well as Maggie and Kara. The main ship of the story is Kara/Lena, though Maggie/Alex factor in quite heavily. There are some Original Female Characters who carry chapters while interacting with the main cast. Though focus never really deviates from the dynamics I mentioned above.

    Summary

    Maggie had ordered her drink when she arrived because she needed something to give her license to occupy the table. She’d hoped that when Alex arrived, she’d still be waiting for her drink to be delivered. She’d have the card in front of her, showing that she’d just arrived, on-time but not over-eager. She’d be able to say, go ahead and order something, have them tack it onto the jack of clubs, removing some of the pressure over whether Maggie should have ordered for her, because they’d have arrived so close together.

    Or, the mostly canon-compliant Sanvers fix-it where they also have daemons.

    Summary

    And then one night near the end of ninth grade, down in Eliza’s basement, just the two of them, Eliza reached over and brushed Maggie’s lip with her finger, impossibly slowly. You had some ash, she whispered, her finger lingering so long. Maggie forgot about the cigarette burning down in her fingers, forgot about the horror movie playing in the background. She felt alive, awake.

    She still has the scar from the cigarette, between the knuckles on her middle finger.

    The next week, she left Eliza a note in her locker, afraid to say it out loud but in so deep. Unraveled so far that she wasn’t sure where she began or ended. She wasn’t numb anymore. She was happy.

    And then it all came crashing down.

    So she understands why he kicked her out. She understands how he got to be so hard. She understands that his whole life, like his parents before him, was about making things better for her. Making her less of an outcast. Making her Maggie Sawyer, working-class Nebraskan, not Magdalena Sanchez, migrant Mexican.

    But she will never fully recover from it.

    Summary

    It's not supposed to happen like this, it's not. She was in a relationship, had been for the last five years, yet it's unsettling how willingly Maggie finds herself in the situation she steps into.

    It begins with a horrible unsettling pang of selfishness that springs and expands, taking on a life of its own as it twists around her heart, because things are too easy, too happy and Maggie doesn't do easy or happy.

    Summary

    Inspired by an anon question to @queergirlwriting - "Do you think Maggie's exes know that she was kicked out at 14 or why she hates Valentine's Day?" and her response - "Of course Alex is the only one who knows. No one's ever loved Maggie like this. No one's ever seen her like this. Of course Alex is the only one who knows."

    Summary

    That scene in 2x13 with the tiramisu and the adorably bad poetry and the argument? This is how it should've gone. Maggie had been the one taking care of Alex up to that point, trying her damndest to give her newly gay girlfriend the perfect coming-out experience. In this "missing scene" it's Alex's turn to take care of Maggie.

    Also: we find out why Alex was wearing that slinky lingerie outfit.
