    Summary

    Adora reached out a hand. “Come on. I’m gonna take you home.”

    Catra looked at the hand outstretched towards her. It would be so easy to take it, she thought. She could forget about the sword, about the destiny, about the First Ones.

    But Adora’s hand trembled a little as it reached out to her, and whether from experience or her newfound connection to magic, Catra could feel the Black Garnet’s energy coming off of it.

    Memories of the abuse she’d endured her whole life flew past her, horrible ones full of red lightning and cruel laughter and sleepless nights that made her hate the next day. Leaving the Horde behind would be the best thing she ever did, even if it meant losing the only person that ever really cared about her.

    But she would be free. She could make her own decisions and her own mistakes. She’d never have to tiptoe around Shadow Weaver again. Wouldn’t that make it worth it?

    Muffled screams came from a few feet away as gunfire sounded in the square, and that helped make her decision for her. If she was going to do this, she’d do it right.

    “No,” Catra said quietly.

     

    Or: in a universe two steps to the left, the Sword of Protection chooses a different wielder.

    Summary

    Tomorrow, she could be gone, and everyone would remember She-Ra, the great and mighty hero who toppled empires and sacrificed herself for the future of Etheria.
    Catra would remember Adora, dorky and sweet, who was bright in a world of shadows, who had scuffed knees, tired smiles, and calloused hands.

    Summary

    At sixteen, Catra and Adora run away to join the military, hoping to escape their abusive foster home. At eighteen, they’re recruited into the Special Forces. At twenty-one, they’re sent on a suicide mission that will supposedly end a thirty-year war. Neither of them expects to survive, but they do. Their friendship doesn’t.

    Adora hasn’t seen Catra since that fateful day five years ago. Now a teacher, (and infamous ex-war hero) at Brightmoon School, she knows the new Literature teacher a little too well. A lot has happened in five years, but Adora is set on fixing a broken promise from long ago.

    However, with their troubled past, scarred present, and a new threat called ‘Prime’ rising to power, it seems they might also have to fight for their future.

    or, you've read the college AUs, so here's the angsty, tragic-backstory teaching AU no one asked for.

    Summary

    “What’s the last thing you remember?”

    Catra stares at her with narrowed eyes. She isn’t sure she can trust her, or anything, at this point. At the same time, though, she feels like she doesn’t have any other options. The Fright Zone is conquered. She has nowhere to go. “... Activating the Portal. And then I woke up here.”

    Adora sucks in a quick breath. Catra’s eyes dart over to her—she looks like she’s about to be sick, white-knuckled and pale.

    Scorpia’s brows knit together. “Catra, that happened over five years ago.”

    ...

    Catra loses her memory. She struggles to find her place in an unfamiliar world, somewhere between hating Adora and loving her.
