    Summary

    It’s strange how accustomed you become to Drifting with someone, how familiar you become with your partner.

    And then it fades away and leaves an empty void in its wake and Angela feels unbalanced, unsettled, like a set of scales weighing down too heavily on one side, like a windblown leaf without a place to land, like the lonely eagle that can’t find a current of warm air to bear it home.

    She yearns for equilibrium.

    Summary

    And belonging is such a weird concept, no? On a pure denotative level, it implies ownership, and society—only when it’s convenient to do so—discourages notions of owning a person. You belong to yourself, they say, no one should own you.

    But people cannot go on without belonging. It’s all Lena’s ever wanted. She wants to belong to Kara. There is no levy, no negotiations, no cage, no footsteps to follow. Kara erases the notion of transaction from the act of belonging, rips up the contracts and fine print, and Lena wants and wants more. I’m yours, she wants to say, whisper into her skin, shout out into the sky that she disappears into. I’m yours, I’m yours, I’m yours.

    Summary

    Somebody at L Corp keeps "accidentally" destroying company property and, by simple chance and happenstance, Lena gets into a back-and-forth with the vandal by way of anonymous post-it notes. And somehow, the stranger's penchant for excessive hearts and smilies is even more irritating than the damages themselves.

    Summary

    Isn’t it weird, Lena thinks bitterly, how the odds keep on stacking against her?

    She never asked to be a Luthor. She isn’t even a real one in the first place. And yet, here she is, dragged by the arms through cold, silent corridors, surrounded by a dozen guards in their polished armor. She is bound, bruised and dirty, escorted to be judged for crimes her brother committed. Lena chuckles derisively. Not Luthor enough in her family’s eyes but enough to be punished in their stead by everyone else.
