    Summary

    “Do you believe in superstition Kara?” The question catches her off guard and she finds herself blinking a few times before forming an answer.

    “Well as a matter of fact, fate was being kind of a jerk to me earlier.” That earns her a small but real chuckle this time, but Lena quickly dissolves back into a tense posture. Kara isn’t sure where she’s going with this. “Why do you ask?”

    or

    Lena's previous experience has her afraid to say "I love you"

    Summary

    The DEO building still stands, an unchanged monolith ten blocks from L Corp. It’s busier than ever, the logo proudly emblazoned over the front doors, covert status abandoned years earlier as aliens became more common. Kara settles on a bench in front of the building, nose wrinkling at the bustle of suited agents and analysts buzzing around inside. She pulls her glasses away after a long moment and stares through the walls and pillars to the center elevator shaft in the lobby, the last one to go up during the rebuild after the Worldkiller attacks. Behind the elevator car, dug into the concrete of the shaft walls, is her handprint and signature, surrounded by Alex’s, and J’onn’s, Sam and Ruby and Lena and Lucy and James and Winn. 

    They’re all still there, deep in the heart of the building.

    Summary

    Supergirl did not die with dignity. She did not die stopping an apocalypse or saving the earth. She died drowning in her own blood, vomiting the green-flecked liquid all over the alleyway behind the Chinese restaurant that happened to serve the best potstickers in National City. Her phone buzzed inside her bag, the name 'Lena Luthor' flashing up on the screen. Lena Luthor, the unwitting delivery system for the murder weapon used to kill the last daughter of Krypton. Lena, the daughter and sister of crazed alien haters. Lena, who had just wanted to make Kara's day a little brighter, the way Kara always did for her.

    Summary

    Lena tries tinder. It's exciting when she matches with a very attractive blonde. It's less exciting when said blonde only swiped right to call her a catfish.

    a.k.a. Tinder AU.

    Summary

    Lena lives in a world of bright, indescribable colors. She walks calculated paths among webs of lasers radiating from every person she sees. She avoids large gatherings where the atmosphere becomes a dizzying mess of psychedelic flares and smoke, but she treasures every individual as the sum of their parts: the auras glowing tight around their wrists.

    Her mother calls them “soul bonds,” a magical manifestation of the connection between souls that only their bloodline can see. Lena calls them “ribbons.”
    -
    Fair warning: Kara has a strong background presence but does not show up until Chapter 4. This is definitely a Supercorp fic, but I love Lena too much to deprive her of a comprehensive backstory, I guess.

    This is about as S2 canon compliant as possible with the initial premise. M for language and intimacy.
