    Summary

    Catra did a bad thing. A REALLY bad thing. She'd been through the ringer since. She's changed.

    Now she wants to make good, to fix the things she's broken. Can she reach the people she hurt? Should they forgive her? And what about the one she tore down the most? Is it better if she lets well alone, or should she try to rebuild that bridge?

    High School was a while ago; the world has moved on. Have the people from her past? Will her overtures be met with success, appreciation? Or just seen as too little, too late?

    A journey of forgiveness, growth and dealing with trauma.

    ---

    Another AU - want to explore the forgiveness elements Catra went through through a new lens. And also focus on an Adora who is maybe a little colder. I want to do the topic justice, as I have family and friends who have struggled with coming to terms with their sexuality. I have dealt with bigotry and judgement. Of course, any input is appreciated if anyone feels I'm not quite on point and any feedback is ALWAYS appreciated.

    WARNING - homophobia and bigotry WILL be shown in this fic. Mentions of conversion therapy, abuse and Shadow Weaver being a shitty shitty parent.

    -

    For my uncle, Paul.

    Summary

    Adora and Catra were best friends in high school.

    Catra burned that bridge. Adora grieved. That was the end of it.

    Until they end up in the same English lit class in college, that is.

    Summary

    “And what are you in for?” the woman asks snidely, crossing her arms and sneering. “Frat party gone wrong? Drunk driving? No wait - embarrassing sexual escapades.” Adora’s kind of glad that whatever’s wrong with her at the moment seems to make her completely incapable of blushing.

    “I am completely yellow,” she says with a raised eyebrow. “What the hell kind of sexual escapades would turn me yellow?” the other woman snorts.

    “Embarrassing ones, obviously.” Adora rolls her eyes and there’s silence for a moment.

    “I’m Adora,” she tries. The other woman stares at her.

    “Okay. Good for you.”

    Adora's gallbladder tries its best to ruin her life, her hospital buddy is both angry and impossibly beautiful, and sometimes apples aren't just apples. Adora blames Chris Martin.

    Summary

    Catra never wanted to be chained to a life of corporate monotony, but being a starving artist wasn’t all it was cracked up to be. Her day job might not be a traditional one by any means, but it lets her afford her passion and has plenty of downtime. Catra likes being her own boss and she makes good money, at least. Being a professional dominatrix works out well for her up until she gets hired for a bachelorette party and discovers that the maid of honor is her ex – and somehow, her new regular now.
