- Grey's Anatomy (1)
You promised you’d stay.
The words are whispered, soft and broken. They seem so loud in the silence.
They say sticks and stones may break bones but words will never hurt. They’re wrong. Because words, they are like the last swing of a hammer. They make sure that the nail is firmly in place tearing the wood apart.
Callie closes her eyes for a second, trying to keep the tears at bay. She sucks in a breath and replies.
I did. I stayed.
Callie Torres revisits some of the most painful and most beautiful times of her life, some of the times she wishes more than anything that she could forget. but she cant. and sometimes the bad times outweigh the good and there's nothing more to do, than cry.
After confronting Lena, Kara goes home and hopes for the best. She is soon called away to a burning building, but when a kryptonite bomb goes off with her still in the building, who is to blame? With Supergirl missing for over 8 months and presumed dead, what will the Superfriends and Lena do? Lex starts slipping and Lena is called back to CEO, but when she's kidnapped by her brother to lure out Supergirl, what will happen?
When Supergirl comes back with a new look and a more darker demeanor, who is to blame? When Kara prefers to work alone and bottles up everything she has ever felt, what could Lena do?
"Why did you leave us? Why did you leave Alex, Nia, Kelly, J'onn... me?", Lena's voice got quieter as she spoke.
"Why did I leave?!!", Kara turns around so quick you could get whiplash just watching her.
"Lena, you can't blame someone for leaving, if you never gave them a reason to stay!!", Kara almost yells, she was tired of being blamed for everyone's pain.
"I love you!! That should be enough of a reason for you to stay!", Lena was in Kara's face now.
"While... it's a little too late to be saying 'I love you'...", Kara blinks back the tears and walks away, leaving Lena alone.
Kara is quiet for a moment and looks down, suddenly interested in the fancy hardwood floor and runs the tip of her red boot along a grain. She can’t look Lena in the eye, but she hears the sigh from across the room, and the clinking of ice in her glass.
This is okay. You’re going to be okay. It’s Lena, she's warm and safe and..-
“Do you know where Kara begins and Supergirl ends?”
A car somewhere on the other side of the city hits its brakes, and the rubbery screech of tires causes Kara to look up at Lena. She knits her brow, and shakes her head, trying to dislodge the intruding sound and process what Lena is asking. This is far outside of what she was expecting; a talk about hurt feelings and all the ugly mechanics of it, but this, this is confrontational.
“Do you even know who you are? Does anyone? Or is this,” Lena waves her free hand up and down in the space between them, “just another lie too?” she says, finishing the last sip of her drink as she walks forward.
[Or Kara walks into a disaster of her own design, and deals with a fallout that drudges up much more than just her lies to Lena]

This is a one-shot that is the result of putting CATWS and Dreamworks' Anastasia in a blender. I couldn't help myself and clearly need to be careful of which movies I watch back-to-back.
Borya (Bucky) and Natalia grow up together in pre-revolution Russia. When a madman known only to them as Johann orchestrates the Revolution they barely escape with their lives, only to be captured by the Red Room.
Separated, tortured and molded into two of the deadliest assassins in the 20th century, they don't see one another again until HYDRA sends the Winter Soldier to shape the world one last time.
Natalia's the only one who remembers.
