    Summary

    Her eyes speak a thousand words she couldn’t say, choosing her words carefully until she settles with “You love my daughter, don’t you?”

    And she’s taken aback, because it shouldn’t be this obvious. She shouldn’t know. No one was supposed to know. Well, Lena had just found out herself, with the warmth that took over her chest last night when Kara didn’t think twice before hugging her by the waist and tugging her closer.

    Sometimes, being ignorant was the best way of self-preservation. She lusted the moments before she knew, she lusted being able to put those thoughts back, to just be. Because now that she knew, she couldn’t unsee it.

    There was something on Eliza’s knowing smile that almost made it too easy blurting out the truth, blurting out that love was too little of an emotion for what she felt. But she knew better than that.

    “She’s my best friend.” The words sound wrong to her ears, they taste bad on her tongue. “Of course I love her.”

    “You know that’s not what I meant.”

    Summary

    Kara keeps thinking about the girl with dark hair. She tells her classmates about her, too, but they all tease her about the girl not being real. Kara’s never quite been this excited about that same old boring cabin, but she just knows: She’ll prove the doubters wrong next summer.

    or the childhood best friends au where you’ve known a person for so long and, well, when you’ve loved them all your life, at which point do you realize you want to love them for the rest?

    Summary

    So Lena congratulates her coworkers when they announce they’ve found the one. She smiles when Sam tells her about meeting Alex; the burst of joy she felt when Alex said the words that matched Sam’s wrist. She’s there when when James proposes to Winn, James repeating the words that have been written on Winn’s wrists for years. But she never discusses her own soulmate.
    And really, it just makes sense to avoid speaking to Supergirl.
    She’s just a scientist, Lena tells herself, and Supergirl is Supergirl. She could have anyone she wants, so why would she pick Lena?
    She’d never want to be with her, Lena reminds herself as she traces the words on her wrist. And Supergirl will never know, anyway, because Kryptonians don’t have soulmate marks.

    Summary

    Lena has a surprising evening. What should have been a nice walk home to work out some frustration ends up with her accidentally ending up in an alien bar. Instead of dying a gruesome death she finds herself in the possession of one Daxamite, who's really good at kissing. But how do you date an alien that is fresh to earth and doesn't have the first clue?

    aka. The story I turned one of the oneshots from my Linked collection into. Its different, and I threw out the soulmate bit because this idea seemed better.
