    Summary

    Catra is not a lifestyle writer. She is an investigative journalist who specializes in uncovering fraud, corruption, and scandals, and she has no business writing any kind of piece on any kind of Valentine's Day Charity Ball.

    But, when her boss plops down an assignment folder containing two tickets to the most romantic event of the season, and the expectation that her roommate will be joining her for the evening, Catra finds herself out of her depth in more ways that one.

    How the hell is she supposed to get through a night hanging off her best friend in a suit without letting it slip that she's been in love with her for over 10 years?

    Spoiler: she doesn't.

    Summary

    In 1760, Kara Danvers is hired by the elusive Lillian Luthor to paint a portrait of her daughter, Lena. Lillian intends to marry Lena off in order for the Luthors to remain wealthy, and the prospective husband requested a portrait to be made. The catch is that Kara must paint the portrait without Lena knowing because Lena does not wish to be married; she refuses to pose for a portrait.
    With a sick sister at home, Kara accepts the job to save Alex's life. What happens when Kara becomes closer to Lena than she ever expected to, and how will Lena react to Kara's hidden agenda? What happens when Kara is no longer sure the ends justify the means?

    Summary

    "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.

    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.
