    Summary

    Adora had wondered briefly, if there was something between Glimmer and Bow. She saw the way they touched each other absentmindedly. Turns out people outside of the Horde show physical affection on a daily basis. Who knew.

    She had once imagined how Catra would react to this information. If she'd be thrilled or embarrassed to know they could just lean on each other and not have to reserve it for the privacy of their rooftop.

    Well.

    Adora supposes it's Catra's rooftop now.

    But she doesn't have to think about that right this second.

    Summary

    It's not the first time they find themselves like this: Catra on the ground, Adora standing above her, the tip of her sword dangerously close to Catra’s throat. Catra thinks she prefers it when Adora kills her without hesitation. But lately, Adora’s been slower to strike her. Catra can't figure out why.

    "Why hesitate?" Catra asks. "I mean, you can't kill me. Not for good. What's stopping you, Adora?"

    Adora doesn't answer her, just stares at Catra with those piercingly beautiful eyes of hers, as if she looks hard enough, Catra will surrender.

    But Catra won't. She lost count of how many times they've killed each other a long time ago, and she's not going to go soft now, not after Dryl has held their ground against Eternia, not when they're this close to finally defeating the Eternians for good.

    Summary

    “Oh, please! You’d never have the guts.” Catra grins.

    Adora’s glare at Catra is firm but the hand holding the sword trembles. There is no one around them to stop Adora. Her friends are probably still on the bridge or walking around looking for other Horde people.

    She’s just a few inches from hurting Catra, but she can’t do it.

    "I knew you couldn’t do it." Catra’s words from Light Hope’s simulation echoes in her head.

    She removes the sword from Catra’s face.

    "The simulation is designed for total accuracy." Light Hope said.

    She could never do it.

     

    Except she does it.

    Summary

    “What do you do?” Catra asks. “On the ranch, I mean.”

    “Pretty much anything that needs doing,” Adora says with a shrug. “I help out with the animals, fix fences, dig holes, paint walls. And I’m always happy to help out our guests, so if you need anything, I’m around.” She flashes Catra a grin that reveals perfect teeth. “‘Sides, I know the property better than anyone. If you ever want a tour, I can show you the best views we’ve got.” That grin turns a bit devious, and Catra’s eyes narrow, wondering if Adora offers all this to every guest.

    “I’ll keep it in mind."

    (Catra rents a vacation house on a ranch in Montana. Everything kind of spirals from there.)
