    Summary

    Kara really doesn’t have a good reason to be in the Biological Sciences building at 6 PM on a Friday night. She’s spent her fair share of time here, having weekly lunches with Alex in her office on the 3rd floor, but Kara knows that Alex went home hours ago, after her last lecture of the day.

    Kara knows that Alex is already home because that’s what the text on her phone says, the one saying that Esme would love to see Aunt Kara for dinner tonight, if she was free.

    And though that had tugged at Kara’s heart, she’d declined, because she had been waiting all week for Friday to arrive.

    Summary

    Kara is all sunshine and hope. She believes in Lena so much that sometimes she doesn’t know what to do with all that faith. So she tucks it away quietly inside her heart, letting it bloom there like the light in Kara’s eyes when she finally agrees to attend game night.

    “Yes!” Kara wraps her up in a tight hug, and Lena lets herself sink into deceptively strong arms and the smell of CatCo coffee. She presses her palms against Kara’s shoulder blades and they stand there together for a moment, Kara rocking them happily from side to side.

    It’s a novelty move for a Luthor, letting someone in.

    Summary

    It isn’t The Wizard of Oz that pierces through whatever walls Kara has placed around her heart, nor is it Singing In The Rain, or even West Side Story. No, it’s Oklahoma! that blindsides her, leaves her sobbing into her throw pillow until her voice disappears and she’s too exhausted to move to her bed.

    She can’t figure out why a story set in the time of farmhands and cowboys could make her think of Lena in any way until she rewatches it.

    And oh. Oh, she finally gets it now.

    Kara hears the words being sung and is reminded of the fact that after everything, Lena still doesn’t have the full story.

    Lena had accused her of having ulterior motives, of wanting to be close to her out of selfishness, of being too cowardly to ever take a real leap of faith. She isn’t all that wrong. Kara’s alter ego may be out in the open now for Lena to see, but that doesn’t mean Kara isn’t still hiding behind some lies.

    The fact that she’s fallen in love with Lena Luthor accidentally along the way is the only secret she’s got left.

     

    AKA, Kara watches an old movie, realizes what's been in front of her this whole time, and somehow, finds her way back to where her heart has made its home.

    These moments of intimacy make her feel like she’s the air that lives in Lena’s lungs, invisible but necessary.

    Summary

    Well my friends, it's that time. The Supercorp fan zine has been out for about a month now, and we've all been given the go-ahead to post our contributions. I'm very proud to have been a part of this project, which has raised a TON of money for the Transgender Law Center, The Trevor Project, and Futures Without Violence. I'm so proud to have been a part of the group that made such a large contribution possible.

    My piece is a fun little romp of a farmer's market au, and I hope you enjoy it!
