- Supergirl (TV 2015) (27)
“Darling,” Lena sounds slightly husky, like her voice had been swallowed up and only just resurfaced from the depths of her chest, “why didn’t you tell me?”
She feels so warm.
“Tell you what?”
She almost feels too warm.
“That what you desire most, is me.”
Lena returns from Newfoundland with the gift of magic. Kara returns to 568 Park Place with the realisation she might be a bit gay for her best friend. Something magical happens. Little trilogy.
Lena Luthor is a senior partner at National City's top law firm Luthor, Luthor & Luthor.
Kara Danvers has been arrested for murder.
A lot goes wrong before it goes right.

“Who the fuck are you?”
“Right,” the blonde woman coughs, “I, um - I am Santa.”
“Santa isn’t real,” Lena squints, holding her sabre out in front of her, almost automatically slipping into her en garde pose, “try again.”
“I swear,” Santa holds her hands defensively, “I just wanted to bring you some Christmas cheer this year and um, I was going to just pop in and out and leave you a Christmas present under your tree, but then I couldn’t help but notice you don’t have a tree, so um, I was trying to find a good spot and then you showed up.”
“How did you bypass my alarm?”
The blonde grimaces. “Your alarm?”
“My state-of-the-art alarm right outside the elevator,” Lena frowns, “I designed it myself, there’s pressure pads, there’s lasers - nobody has ever made it past it. I didn’t even get an alert; how did you bypass it?”
“I came through the chimney.” The blonde smiles.
Lena sighs. “There is no chimney,” she clenches her jaw, her patience running thin, “I will ask you one more time, Santa.”
Kara Danvers is Santa. Lena Luthor doesn't believe in Santa and hates Christmas with a passion. It's chaos.
“What if I just,” Kara breathes, “let myself be who I am, and someone gets hurt? It,” she sighs, looking up at Lena, “it happened before.”
“If you are talking about me, Kara, I promise -”
“No, wait,” Kara mumbles, holding out her hands and prompting Lena to take them, “I - I’ve never told you this because I didn’t,” she pauses, “I didn’t want to make things worse.”
“Make what worse?” Lena inquires, an uneasy heat running up her spine, “What are you talking about?”
“About two years ago, I got a visit from Mxyzptlk,” she chews her bottom lip gently, “Mxy. And basically, he offered me the chance to go back in time and tell you that I was Supergirl as some sort of ideal do-over.”
6x20 fix-it fic. We deserved better.
“I need you to look after her. After this.” Lillian looks up at her, “You’re the only being in the galaxy I know would do right by her.” The older woman’s hand manages to grab Kara’s and Rao, she feels cold, “Promise me,” she stresses, “please.”
“Of course,” Kara says gently, “Lena’s my best friend, she -”
“I know you think of me as a villain,” Lillian smirks, “or a horrible mother to Lena, or a bitch. I did not consider you take me for a fool. You love her.”
“It’s bad form to lie to someone on their deathbed.” Lillian cuts her off, “You are in love with her.” She states matter-of-factly, “And in any other circumstances, you could rest assured I would go out of my way to try and keep you away from her but now,” she swallows, “I think I am at peace with it.” She pauses, “Does she know?”
Lillian Luthor never explicitly told Lena she loved her but in the end, when it mattered, she decided actions do speak louder than words.
