Glimmer is gone. Bow is gone. Catra wasn't the first Adora lost, but she's gone, too. It was of her own volition. She didn't get a lot of choices, back in the Horde. Adora knows that, she just wishes she didn’t choose to let go, when all Adora has been trying to do was hold on.
A canon divergent AU where during the portal encounter, Adora has a knife.

"If I leave now, I'll never see you again," Adora states slowly as the truth sinks in. She glances at the raft on the water, then back to Catra, who's holding her arms close to her chest. Light Hope had told her there would be consequences, Adora never considered that meeting Catra would be one of them.
"You are a hero, Adora," Catra reminds her. She says hero as if it's a tainted word, an insult, a disgrace. "Heroes don't stay."
"I'll come back," Adora says. "I won't just leave you here.”
Something flickers in Catra's eyes. "No one ever finds Ogygia twice," she says.
A Greek mythology/Percy Jackson inspired AU.

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.
Adora supposes it's Catra's rooftop now.
But she doesn't have to think about that right this second.
Five times Adora represses herself and the one time she doesn't.

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.
An AU inspired by Netflix's The Old Guard.

What was it Catra joked about the other day?
