    Summary

    "Lena," Kara asks, "what are you to me?"

    Lena's heartbeat stutters. "You—you said there was no memory loss," she stammers. "Kara, what—what happened?"

    "I absorbed my sun," Kara tells her calmly. "I became a God."

     

    (In which Kara becomes a deity of protection, and it complicates things just a little. Featuring: a determined big sister, an endlessly supportive love interest, and some dad advice.)

    Summary

    She’s staring at Blake like she’s giving up, like she loves her, like she’s handing her that sky. Take this, she’s saying, this clap of thunder, this wildfire waiting to start. Take this like it’s my heart.

    Blake runs away, and only after realizes what she's been running to. I've seen enough destruction, Yang says. Sometimes it's nice just to watch the flowers bloom.

    Summary

    It’s been a year but Yang knows her, knows what her body means in the way it moves, knows every tilt of her mouth, every blink, every beat of her heart, every chamber of it, the way it bruises and bleeds and bumps against her chest. I’ve lived there, Yang thinks of telling her, please let me leave. But Blake is silent and doesn’t move.

    The truth is easy for Yang to see until it isn't. I love you, Blake says. It's the only reason I've ever done anything.

    There you go, Yang says, lying again.
