Lexa Woods has everything she wanted in life. Friends, family, and working towards the major of her dreams. She thought life was perfect until she met Clarke Griffin, a blonde haired, blue eyed beauty who just happens to sit next to her in class. But Clarke holds a dangerous secret. Determined to figure out what Clarke is hiding Lexa will go to any length to discover her secret. Can she help Clarke out of the darkness or allow herself to be pulled in with her?
Clarke Griffin is not nearly as enthusiastic as her friends to start the new semester. Maybe, it's because she's a transfer, new school already tainted by the bad experiences of the last one. Maybe it's because her mom hasn't called, or because her ex won't stop calling. No matter what it is, it's all made worse when she finds out that her room is directly across from the RA. An RA who she can't stop thinking about.
Clarke and Lexa did not meet under the best of circumstances. It also didn’t help that they’re both stubborn as hell and, given the chance, would never back down from a fight. But fate has a funny way of bringing people together. So they find themselves on the road, running away from their problems, hoping to get somewhere while heading nowhere in particular.
Starts off as a sort of modern college AU but is really a road trip fic. Somewhat inspired by a novel called “Invisible Monsters” and a bunch of other random shit. This is a G!p Lexa fic because everybody is apparently doing one, and I happen to really like ‘em.
A/N: This work is now newly polished and has its own Spotify playlist called Run on Gasoline (The Playlist) with songs mentioned here and others that I think fit the fic.
- Part 1 of Run on Gasoline
Clarke comes home after her sophomore year of college to find she has a new neighbor, Lexa. Her interest in Lexa begins to grow. What makes things worse is that Clarke realizes her bedroom window looks directly into Lexa's bedroom window. Eventually Lexa realizes the same thing. After some initial embarrassment, they decide to have some fun with it. Maybe a little too much fun.
- Part 1 of Open Windows
The day that Lexa met Clarke, she found out about her two rules. The first, was to never fall in love. The second, was to never let anyone fall in love with her. But as it turns out, rules are broken everyday and they both end up falling head over heels in love with each other. The reason Clarke had those rules is a secret, until one day she can't hide it anymore, and after some very big events, decides to leave Lexa. She thinks it's what is best for Lexa, so she leaves without so much as a word of where she is going.
Lexa searches for Clarke for three years. She is a writer and decides to tell their story, in hopes that Clarke will read it and come back to her, or at least let her know she is ok.
What happens when they come face to face again, and will hearing their story told from Lexa's side help Clarke realize they can be together and happy. Can Lexa convince Clarke that she wants to be with her no matter what, and that together they can make it work?
