    Summary

    Ava followed her commanding officer down the damp, metal stairs. The basement had an industrial look, filled with pipes and concrete pillars to support the city-building above it. She suppressed a shiver, the thin polyester of her pantsuit failing to stop the chill.

    “Why are we interested in a common murder?” she asked Rip as they reached the landing and began threading in between large boilers. “I checked before we left. There’s nothing anachronistic about this incident.”

    The director stopped and looked back at her for a second.

    “Trust me, Agent Sharpe. There is nothing common about this murder.”

    --OR--

    Sara is still feral and chained up in that basement when Ava and the Time Bureau swoop in to try and help *cough* manipulate *cough* her.

    --OR--

    Basically, I was so impressed by Caity Lotz's post-death performance that I wanted to expand on what it would've been like for Sara after the Lazarus Pit. This is a what-if AU that diverges in episode 04x04 of Arrow. What if bringing Sara back wasn't as simple as Constantine bopping her soul back into her body? What if she had a long road ahead to recovering the woman she used to be?

    Summary

    Forever doesn't seem like a very long time when you're sixteen and in love. When you're eighteen and unsure of where you are going or what you are doing with your life however, forever becomes one more terrifying unknown in an abyss of uncertainties. Lexa loves Clarke too much to ask her to wait for her; Clarke loves Lexa too much to want to do anything else, but when she has no idea if she'll even ever see the other girl again, will she be able to put her heart through that? Apart, will their love for each other survive, or will time prove that nothing truly lasts? Does true love mean holding on no matter the hurt, or does it mean letting go? Neither Clarke nor Lexa know, but they're going to find out.

    Summary

    “The locals aren’t fans of college kids. This is their neighborhood bar. They can get…territorial.”

    Clarke studies the girl who stopped the fight before it began. Leaning back in her chair in the back of the bar, she's all dark hair and dark eyeliner and dark alcohol. Clarke can see what he’s saying: the glare etched into her face is a clear warning for anyone who might step forward to her.

    But the vodka has thinned Clarke’s blood; she’s always been brazen and right now she can’t take that warning as anything less than a challenge.

    She grabs Octavia’s wrist and pulls her forward. “C’mon.”
