    Summary

    “The worst thing that I ever did,” Catra swallows the words as they bubble in her throat, her gaze split between Adora’s opal eyes and her grip on the door knob whitening, “was what I did to you.”

    As the thrill of summer turns fades into the worst autumn in her life, Catra is ready to admit she doesn't know anything at seventeen years old. Catra didn't know how much she would regret getting in the first car that drove up during the first fight with her best friend turned girlfriend Adora. Catra didn't know (because she never called) that Adora switching homerooms could feel so much like her own fault, that this exile could feel so much like a curse. Catra doesn't know anything- except that she misses Adora, and loves her like she's always loved her.

    Or, Adora throwing a party gives Catra one last chance to mend the string of fate that binds them together and change the ending to this story- if Adora doesn't slam the door in her face for being so bold as to show up, that is.

    Summary

    There have always been rumors about immortals, but the general populace dismisses it as a fable from a time before science could explain someone’s recovery. Rumors have continued to circulate in the criminal underground, however, of individuals who can pull off job after job, never seeming to face consequences or even gather scars. When Adora receives a fatal injury during a heist and wakes up alive and unharmed in her bed, she is forced to accept that there is more to the legend than just mysticism.
    There is an entire group seeming to possess the same miraculous abilities fresh on the scene in the Fright Zone, and the Alliance is starting to cut into the Horde’s take now. With the knowledge that they all could be like Adora, she is sent to join them undercover and spy on them, but fears begin to rise that Adora has truly turned her back on the Horde – and Catra.

    Summary

    Coping with her stressful studies on the way to certification as a physiotherapist, Adora has fallen into a local community theatre as a way to have fun and make new friends. She's made a place for herself there and everything is going great when she lands one of the lead roles of their newest play - until she shows up to the first rehearsal and the person cast in the role of her romantic opposite is Catra, who she hasn't seen since the breakup eight years ago when she left Catra behind to move across the country for a soccer scholarship.

    But there's no denying the obvious chemistry between them when they get on stage, and the director won't hear of anybody else playing the roles.

    Summary

    I’ve been waiting for you, my love.

    I’ve waited for hundreds of years.

    Is this the century when finally you return to me? The decade?

    Is this the year?

    The day?

    The hour?

    I can smell you, my love.

    I would know that scent anywhere.

    And I know that you know mine.
