    Summary

    "For the last four years, Catra’s routine had been the same.

    Every day, she woke up just after dawn; left the comfort of her own bed to go prepare food for her, her husband, and whatever guests they might have; and checked the supply of ale in the cellar.

    Then, she would make sure all the mugs and glasses were clean. Once people started rolling in, usually just after noon, the bar would be wiped down and the musicians she employed would be setting up. She would make idle conversation with the others and finish cleaning up until the first groups of men looking for a drink showed up with pockets that clinked and jingled with coins, and then the rest of the night would be spent cleaning mugs and pouring ale.

    Catra had resigned herself to this life with a sort of detached acceptance.

    Then, a Rebellion captain walked into her establishment, and she knew instantly that something was about to change."

    or, Captain Adam Fairchild, who harbors a secret that could get him killed, goes in search of a spy to help the Rebellion's cause. He finds it — and much, much more — in a tavern-keeper's wife.

    Summary

    Adora thought that a platonic marriage to her best friend seemed like a great idea at the time. Glimmer gets to prove to her parents that she’s mature enough to handle the family business, and Adora can finally stop feeling pressured to find "the one".

    It’s mutually beneficial, honestly. Their friends know the truth, and the only people they need to fake it around are Glimmer’s parents.

    The only minor setback is that the owners of the vineyard they're booking just so happen to be Glimmer's college flame and the woman that Adora has been pining after for her entire life.

    Summary

    Being She-ra was power and freedom, but in the wake of her … When Adora crashed back into her own body, made home with all the hurt, all the pain that being Adora meant … Well, it made her angry. She’d never considered before, before all this, that maybe things were unfair. That word had never been part of her personal vocabulary. Things were the way they were, and you dealt with it, and that was that. No use fussing. No use asking what could have been, might have been, if things were different. If you were different.

    She’d been a child, and then a soldier, and she’d never considered that maybe hurting all the time wasn’t normal. Because of course she did. With the things the Horde put them through? Adora didn’t know enough about the world to think anything of it.
