    Summary

    “It’s kind of stupid—”

    “It’s not,” Adora assured her. “Show me. Please?”

    There was still a moment of hesitation before Catra finally opened it. The first page was a surprisingly intricate drawing of Melog, done completely in black pen, but somehow their mane still seemed to shimmer. Adora stared at it for a long moment, mouth hanging open.

    “Did… Did you draw this?”

    “Yeah.” Catra was back to picking at the blanket. “Everyone kept saying I need a hobby that isn’t just punching things in the gym, and I… I dunno, this was the only other thing I was ever good at.”

    Catra (re)discovers a hobby. Adora is fully supportive.

    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

    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 gir'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

    “Let’s make a bet.” 

    Catra straightened, ears perking up. She liked bets. She liked winning them.

    “If we win the game tonight, you’ll go to the dance with me tomorrow.” 

    Laughter ripped from Catra’s throat. She tossed her head back, fangs bared in open-mouthed giggles. “Wow, you really don’t want to go with me. The Rebels kick our asses every year.” 

    “That’s not true!” Indignation sparked and died in Adora’s blue eyes. “Well, we almost had them last year.” 

    “Almost isn’t winning, Adora. Besides, if we don't win,” asked Catra, shuffling to fit her arms into the sleeves of Adora’s letterman as discreetly as possible, “what’s in it for me?” 

    Adora blinked. “What do you want?” 

    You.

    Not that she was stupid enough to say that. 


    ______________

    In just a year, high school senior Catra has overcome everything the universe managed to throw at her — a manipulative parent, a broken system, a ruined friendship. If only she could get over something as stupid as a crush.
