    Summary

    "She likes the science section. That’s all Kara really knows for sure about her most frequent customer. She has long, black hair, an always expensive coat and she knows Kara’s science section like the back of her hand (and no, that wasn’t a euphemism like Alex wouldn’t stop suggesting)."

    Lena keeps buying books she doesn't need because she's useless and Kara keeps almost passing out from simply looking at her because she's equally as useless.

    Summary

    The woman who opens the door is nothing like Kara expected.

    She’s not a housewife. She’s young, probably Kara’s age, and alarmingly pretty. She looks loose, and carefree, and stylish. She looks like a catalog model. No…even better. Those women don’t have half the curves that this woman does, they don’t have her subtle smile or her bright green eyes –

    Bright green eyes that are staring directly at Kara.

    “Can I help you?”

    OR

    Kara is a sexless housewife in 1969, feeling trapped with nowhere to go. But when mysterious, kind-hearted Lena Luthor moves in next door, hosting swinger’s parties but ignoring the men, Kara’s whole world shifts on its axis.

    Summary

    Lena Luthor had decided early on that people tend to avoid you if you're blasting loud music and not looking their way. it discourages most people from striking up conversations. So, every night, she connects her immersion headphones and blasts her favorite Gothic metal playlist while reading her book of the week while on the subway home (much to her mother's disapproval and Lena's delight).

    Kara Danvers is a up and coming journalist sent on an internship to the Daily Planet with Lois Lane (really it's just a front so she can shadow her cousin. he insisted on her doing this before she decided to take on the mantle and don the cape). it was a miracle Cat Grant had even agreed to this in the first place. so the cardigan toting blonde finds herself on the subway every night after work on her way home.

    it's loud and lonely until Kara lays eyes on a certain goth sitting across from her.

    One day Lena comes onto the train with her bag and a book and sits opposite Kara. it takes the blonde a second but finally she realizes what's missing.

    Kara asks "no headphones today?"

    title from the song On the train ride home by the paper kites

    Summary

    "Lena, there's no time to explain but your answer to this next question could very well determine the fate of the universe: Can I have a smooch?"

    (In which Kara becomes powered by kisses, and it's all much more complicated than it should be.)
