    Summary

    There’s a tempest raging in Lena’s chest. Love and hate, anger and affection, the impulse to break down and confess everything – Hope, Lex’s final words, everything – and the betrayal that still haunts her, still makes her want to hurt, to sting back. A good person would push past the dark thoughts, put their effort into forgiving and moving forward. A good person wouldn’t take the easy route, and continue the cycle of hurt.

    Kara brushes their noses together lightly, like she hasn’t brought Lena’s whole world crashing down with her lies, and the hurt pushes harder. The anger bubbles forth, and Lena clenches her jaw.

    She isn’t good, after all, is she? She never has been. Just ask her mother.

    Lena reaches down, aligns Kara’s fingers, and presses them inside to the knuckle.

    OR

    After the reveal, Lena decides to cope with her conflicted feelings through a friends with benefits arrangement – only, without the ‘friends’. Unsurprisingly, it does not end well.

    An examination of Lena’s perspective in 5x01 through to the confrontation in 5x07, had things gone just a little bit differently.

    Summary

    Lena is known as a player. When Kara Danvers; her shy, new friend, asks her for help because she no longer wants to be the awkward virgin who never even kissed someone, Lena says yes. So what if nobody aside from Lena’s best friend knows Lena is secretly a virgin, too?

    Summary

    Lena's upset (understatement of the year) after Lex reveals Kara's identity (post-4x22).

    She leaves for Ireland as soon as she can, then talks to her Mum up above once she's there because nothing else makes sense (even though she's never been all that religious to begin with, and she knows damn well her dead mother won't be talking back to her).

    Still, she wants her mom to know that she's in love (with Kara), that it hurts (because of Kara), and that she's scared but she's still going to try (because it's Kara and Lena loves her more than anything).

    It's sad, and angsty... but really kind of cute and heartwarming at the same time.
