    Summary

    “Can I help you with something?” Catra asks in the most detached ‘customer service’ voice that she’s probably ever used. Her eyebrow’s still arched and until now, Adora hadn’t realized the power of that one single move.

    “Yes,” Adora says. “I’m looking for a book. Something by…” She tilts her head towards Catra and throws her a little cheeky grin. “Sappho.”

    Catra immediately breaks character, laughing so hard that she has to close her eyes and throw her head back. “Gods, Gray! That’s what you came up with?!”


    Catra wants to be a librarian, which Adora thinks is brilliant and amazing. And also, hot. Like, really hot. So hot that Adora can’t get it out of her mind and, after some inspired birthday gift-giving, Catra sets up a little surprise for her. Turns out, Adora's got a surprise of her own. Who will come out on top?

    Summary

    Catra’s taken part in a lot of Etherian holidays in the year since the war ended. The Plumerian Blossom Festival, the Salinean Coral Regatta, the Summer Solstice in the Kingdom of Snows. The eclectic traditions feel strange, but she’s gotten used to them. Started to look forward to them, even, welcoming them into the life she and Adora are building.

    None of them had prepared her for Box Day.

    Summary

    Catra never wanted to be chained to a life of corporate monotony, but being a starving artist wasn’t all it was cracked up to be. Her day job might not be a traditional one by any means, but it lets her afford her passion and has plenty of downtime. Catra likes being her own boss and she makes good money, at least. Being a professional dominatrix works out well for her up until she gets hired for a bachelorette party and discovers that the maid of honor is her ex – and somehow, her new regular now.

    Summary

    “Look, can I ask you something? It’s your birthday so I don’t know if you’ve set any boundaries on hook-ups but…”

    “Hooking up?” And then Adora just can’t stop, “Oh, no, I’m not hooking up. I mean. I have, but not now. Not, uh, a thing I do really. Um...yeah.”

    Catra is kind enough to try to hold back her smile.

    “Well, you just made this super awkward,” she breathes out. “I was gonna ask if your friend was single. You're hot and all. But every word out of your mouth has been a total bummer, not gonna lie.”

    Adora has died and gone to lesbian hell. She always knew it would come to this.
    __

    Adora Gray's life is on track, just the way she likes it – ever steady, no surprises. And then Catra Morgan crashes her birthday party and turns everything upside down by dating her best friend Glimmer and making Adora fall for her.

    That's fine! Adora is not panicked at all, thank you very much. She has some detailed, multi-step plans to ignore her growing feelings and navigate this all. But Catra, and her past, have a pesky tendency of showing up and throwing everything for a loop.

    I haven’t been able to stop thinking about this AU since I finished reading this story.
