"Are we soulmates?"
"I mean,I've been reading a lot of fanfiction lately, and-"
"We're not gonna fall in love, Blue. I promise."
Or, alternatively, a genderswap Klance au where after an accident, whenever a mark shows up on Lana's skin, it shows up on Keira's as well, and vice versa. Lana's read a lot of gay fanfiction, and she thinks it's a soulbond. She's read stories just like this, and to her, this link is a dream come true. It's her chance at a happily ever after. But Keira... Keira just tries to wash the marks away.
Peridot is at a party on the Diamonds' private island when it happens, when the neutron bomb goes off, killing everyone else on the island. Everyone except her and Lapis Lazuli. But now they're trapped. It doesn't seem so bad at first. Then they find something, some scattered bits and pieces of the truth. And a death threat that is not to be ignored. Now they have to get off the island, go home. In their struggle to leave, they realize that there's a spark between them. Did the bomb that killed countless other create it? Or maybe it was always there, beneath the surface, the hidden glances, the whispered secrets.
But there are still lingering questions that can't quite be ignored. Who dropped the bomb? Why weren't three of the Diamonds at their own party? Why was it that only Pink Diamond was killed that night? Did Rose Quartz know this would happen years before? Were the eight hundred other teens at the party that night just collateral damage?
The only ones who know the answer are off the island. And these two teens have to play their cards right to reach them. Choices are made. Feelings left behind and picked up, like leaves in the wind.
And no one knows how it'll end.
Everyone knows that any mark you draw on your skin shows up in the same place on your soulmate. Anything from watercolor paintings to lines drawn in cheap ballpoint pen will be transferred over. Though it's not just ink. The emotions of your soulmate are transferred over, too. A way to get to know each other before you even meet.
But sometimes, your soulmate isn't who you want it to be. Hopes are shattered the day you find your soulmate. But they can be dreams, be dreams turned into reality, too. You just have to hope they aren't nightmares.
(TD;LR, soulmate au where Lapis is an artist and athlete while Peridot hides her talent. They're both socially awkward but Lapis is better at Faking It Till She Makes It™ so she's popular, I guess.)
Peridot is an archer, rivaled only by fictional characters and Olympic athletes. Then, at her new school, she meets a beautiful girl with shocking blue hair and a passion for anything aquatic. And Lapis Lazuli has a certain charisma that makes the archer's heart pound. But she also has secrets, ones that would make any sane person run away. Good thing Peridot isn't entirely sane herself, jumping fences and breaking the law for the swimmer that caught her heart.

-Will not be updated.-
“She loves me,” Romelle says, completely unaware of what she’s doing. Another wilting petal catches her eye, and she pulls at that one too. “She loves me not.”
This is a habit. It’s a silly little mantra she’s been repeating to herself in hushed voices ever since she started her first garden at six. Although it had been he who did or did not love Romelle at the time, that changed as soon as she entered middle school and discovered Emma Watson for the first time. And the habit stuck, and now more often than not she’s whispering those words as she tends to the flowers in her shop.
In which Romelle is head over heels for the tattoo artist that works down the street, and Allura finds a much-needed hand to hold in the owner of the florist shop she passes on her way to work. Both girls learn there's more to love than just flowers.
