    Summary


    “Were you ever punished?
    “Only for faults,” said Alice.
    “And you were all the better for it, I know!” the Queen said triumphantly.
    “Yes, but then I had done the things I was punished for,” said Alice: “that makes all the difference.”
    “But if you hadn't done them,' the Queen said, “that would have been better still; better, and better, and better!”

    Summary

    She throws her bag into her bike’s wire basket and turns to Adora with a raised brow. “Do I know you or something?”

    “I —” Adora tilts her head, considering. “I don’t think so? Maybe we’ve seen each other around town.”

    Catra’s eyes travel from Adora’s feet, up her legs, all the way up to her eyes in a slow crawl. She’s gripping her bike’s handlebars, frizzy curls escaping her updo and surrounding her face. “I think I’d remember you.”

    or: adora would recognize catra anywhere.

    Summary

    The seat directly in front of the grill is open and don’t mind if she does. She folds her hands on the dirty counter and stares intently at the back of the cook’s head. So she’s one day out of prison: just thin, precarious ice between her feet and spending the rest of her best years behind bars, and she’s decided she’s going to stomp.

    She’s going to ruin everything.

    She’s going to physically fight a fry cook at a ten-head diner in the worst part of the city over almost nothing whatsoever.

    These are the decisions that make us as people.

    Summary

    “I was going to kill you awfully,” Villanelle explains in earnest.

    Eve’s mouth goes flat and she turns her head back to profile, watching the street and not the evil thing at her side, brave or just stubborn. “Well. You should have led with that, then.”
