    Summary

    Kara doesn’t seem to pick up on her worries. She’s opened the fourth pack of pot stickers and is happily scoffing them down her face, talking about a new Vietnamese place she and Lena went to. Alex feels sick.

    “- and she’s so, so smart, Alex. You would like her, really, she’s very clever. She has, like, two master’s degrees and a PhD and I think she’s also working on this -”

    She is going to run an extensive background check on Lena Luthor and maybe even get a DEO team to follow her every move, just to be safe.

    OR

    Slowly but surely, Alex Danvers picks up on the fact something might be going on between her sister and Lena Luthor, who may or may not be a dangerous villain, she's not sure yet.

    Summary

    “Kara, the fresh box is on your top shelf, can you—”

    There are a lot of plausible explanations for what happens next. Maybe it’s because they’re already goofing around, maybe it’s because Kara broke her step stool last week and she can fly so she hasn’t needed to replace it, or maybe it’s because she just really likes touching Lena lately, but instead of, well, anything else, Kara’s first impulse is to grab Lena just below her waist and lift her up so she can reach the tea.

    It’s the soft, ever so slightly breathless “oh” from Lena as Kara hoists her up that knocks whatever autopilot is engaged in Kara’s brain offline, and her first conscious thought is that Lena’s thighs are soft.

    or, Lena keeps needing help getting things down from high shelves. What’s a Kryptonian to do?

    Summary

    “So?” Alex prompts.

    Kara looks up from the styrofoam container, already having broken apart her chopsticks. “So what?”

    “What do you mean so wha—Kara!” Kara freezes, chopsticks hanging in midair clutching a piece of kung pao chicken. There is real frustration and confusion in Alex’s voice. “Imagine my surprise when I sign in at the front desk and the nurse says that my sister-in-law is stable right now. Wanna tell me why you’re playing house to visit your best friend in the hospital?”

    Kara sets the chicken down. “Alex…”

    “Kara, you have ten seconds to explain why the entire staff thinks you and Lena are married and the answer had better not actually involve marriage or I swear to god I’ll…”

    ____________

    In which Kara is a whole entire idiot, Alex is a permanent mood, and Lena is just glad Kara is there for her, as her fake wife, while she recovers from another quarterly attempt on her life.

    Summary

    “Help me understand,” Kara says. “Are you saying everyone falls in love with their best friend?”

    “I’m saying that queer women have a special affinity for it,” Lena repeats, fishing the cherry out of the bottom of her drink. “The whole ‘falling for your straight best friend’ is basically a rite of passage.”

    “Says who?”

    “Everyone.” She puts the cherry in her mouth, bites it off the stem. “The L Word was like, built on the premise that a friend group of queer woman in LA dated each other in some sort of terrible repeating circle for, god, however many seasons that went on. And it’s been my experience that when two people are attracted to each other, and they’re close, feelings are likely to develop.”

    “That’s just, I mean, come on.” Kara’s cheeks are a little pink. “A trope and a tv show? That’s your evidence?”

    “So you’ve never been in love with your best friend?” Lena looks down at her empty glass.

    “No!” Kara sounds affronted. “No, I have never been in love with my best friend.”

    Or, A love story, told in three acts.

    Summary

    it is possible, lena will concede, that kara likes her as more than a friend. it's also possible that kara's just a naturally handsy person and lena is hopelessly deluded. clearly, there's only one way to find out the truth: through rigorous scientific observation.
