    Summary

    “Oh? What were you thinking about, exactly?”

    “About the day we met,” Adora answered easily.

    Catra hummed at the memory. “You mean the best day of my life? I remember it well.”

    She snorted. “Please. It was not. You almost drowned!” Her denial was met with an arched eyebrow.

    “You doubt my word?”

    “I doubt your ability to be serious.”

    With a shrug of acquiescence. “I suppose that’s fair,” she mused quietly, slowly walking towards her. “But I assure you…” Catra came close, dangerously close. “I’m quite serious,” she crooned.

    Adora smiled. “Why was it the best day of your life?” She only closed her eyes when the other woman traced fingers down her cheek, enjoying the volts of electricity that seemed to pulse along her skin where Catra touched her.

    “The day I met you?” She could feel her pulse in her ears as they twitched, her throat running dry. She gripped what remained of her courage and continued. “The day I met the love of my life? How could it not be the best day?” Catra held her breath for just a moment before continuing on. “Adora… you do know that I love you… right?”

    Summary

    It's been eight years since Adora left Weaver's group home, leaving her best friend Catra behind as well. Now Adora finds herself living in Whispering Woods, a quiet country town in the middle of nowhere. A peaceful and quiet place where she can heal, or so she thought. She wasn't the only one who decided that living in a small town was a good idea. Catra owns the only bar within a thirty-mile radius along with co-owner Scorpia and it doesn't help that the only thing that makes Adora feel any better nowadays is alcohol. Adora keeps the last eight years of her life under as much wraps as possible and Catra still hides some of her own secrets.

    This is a bit of a role reversal in a way. Adora is the one who struggles emotionally while Catra is the more stable one in their shared adulthood.

    Summary

    At the thought that crossed her mind Korra's expression dropped. “Asami…are you cheating on me?”

    “What?!” Asami’s eyes were wide and her voice incredulous as she grabbed her chest and stepped back in shock, like the very words sent a bullet threw her heart. “NO! I would never do that!” She was appalled that Korra would even think such a thing.

    “I know…” Korra’s shoulders sank and her eyes lowered dejectedly. The thought passed as soon as it came and Korra knew it wasn’t even worth entertaining. It was stupid and she didn’t even believe it herself, but she was at her wits end. “If it’s not that then…what is it? What’s wrong?!” Korra hung her head in defeat and felt tears welling in her eyes. All the fight had left her body and was replaced with a deflating, crushing emptiness.

    Voice watery and barely above a whisper she asked, pleading for an answer. “Why don’t you want me?”

    Summary

    Asami Sato:
    “Hiya, Korra, this is Asami, your Couchsurfing hostess from Oslo. Hope your trip is going well. Listen, I’m so sorry to ditch this on you so close to your arrival, but the trip that I had scheduled for the days you’d be in the city was canceled and for reasons beyond my control, I’m going to be at home during your stay at my house. As you know, the room you’d be staying in is my spare one so you can keep your plans of staying with me, if my presence doesn’t bother you, that is. Ok, hope you’re safe, and let me know if you’ll still want to couch surf with me.
    Asami.”

    Or
    Korra is backpacking in Europe and goes to Norway to chase the Northern Lights. Asami is a hostess on Couchsurfing, studying to take on her father's company after his death.

    Summary

    A scrapbook of memories and this is the one that sits on the very first page, but she knows she knew Catra long before that too, and they’d fallen together again every summer like the rest of the year didn't even exist.

    It was a mystery to Adora, still, as to why everything had so violently torn apart that last July after they'd presented. She’d been expecting a little anger, resentment maybe, but she hadn’t prepared herself for four years of cold, absent silence.

    She accepts it was her fault.

    She wishes she knew why.
