    Summary

    Before today, Catra hadn’t really had much of an opinion on corn mazes. They were okay— midwest tradition, a little cheesy but maybe kind of fun, depending on who you’re with. Just kind of...whatever. She’d never really thought about it.

    Now, standing alone in what is possibly the biggest corn field she’s ever seen in her life, entirely lost, hours past sunset and probably miles beyond the maze’s borders, she’s starting to form a more colorful opinion of them.

    Well— she’s not entirely alone, because blondie here won’t stop following her. It’s getting kind of annoying, honestly, even though she’s the only person for miles and Catra’s one shot at getting out of this shitty field once and for all. She's not sure how much longer she can deal with this girl’s incessant positivity and that cocky smile she keeps throwing Catra’s way, either. It would all be fine (maybe even a little fun) if the girl weren't so obviously straight.

    But it’s fine. Catra can take care of herself.

    Summary

    Adora dances through the strands of time programmed into the system. The first week, she jumps forward just a year or two — 2042, 2043, just before the breakup, back when they were still happy. In 2051, she sports the short, choppy haircut that was popular at the time. In 2066, it’s long, and dyed at the tips. She’s twenty two, over and over and over again, each weekend spent experiencing that age right on the cusp of adulthood as she weaves in and out of time periods, searching for Catra.

    In the summer of 2044, she wanders past a sports bar and sees her own face, sweaty and breathless in an interview. Adora remembers this video — it was taken just before she received her first Olympic gold.

    Adora keeps walking. There’s no way Catra would choose to be here.


    ________

    Adora has never had much interest in the Etheria program, a virtual reality simulation in which those on the verge of death and dementia can relive their glory days, dancing side by side with the consciousnesses of the deceased — but when she runs into a familiar face while visiting a dearly departed friend, she finds herself tumbling back into a romance she thought she had lost decades ago.

    Summary

    "For the last four years, Catra’s routine had been the same.

    Every day, she woke up just after dawn; left the comfort of her own bed to go prepare food for her, her husband, and whatever guests they might have; and checked the supply of ale in the cellar.

    Then, she would make sure all the mugs and glasses were clean. Once people started rolling in, usually just after noon, the bar would be wiped down and the musicians she employed would be setting up. She would make idle conversation with the others and finish cleaning up until the first groups of men looking for a drink showed up with pockets that clinked and jingled with coins, and then the rest of the night would be spent cleaning mugs and pouring ale.

    Catra had resigned herself to this life with a sort of detached acceptance.

    Then, a Rebellion captain walked into her establishment, and she knew instantly that something was about to change."

    or, Captain Adam Fairchild, who harbors a secret that could get him killed, goes in search of a spy to help the Rebellion's cause. He finds it — and much, much more — in a tavern-keeper's wife.

    Summary

    It's not the first time they find themselves like this: Catra on the ground, Adora standing above her, the tip of her sword dangerously close to Catra’s throat. Catra thinks she prefers it when Adora kills her without hesitation. But lately, Adora’s been slower to strike her. Catra can't figure out why.

    "Why hesitate?" Catra asks. "I mean, you can't kill me. Not for good. What's stopping you, Adora?"

    Adora doesn't answer her, just stares at Catra with those piercingly beautiful eyes of hers, as if she looks hard enough, Catra will surrender.

    But Catra won't. She lost count of how many times they've killed each other a long time ago, and she's not going to go soft now, not after Dryl has held their ground against Eternia, not when they're this close to finally defeating the Eternians for good.
