    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

    "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

    "“Oh my God,” Catra said, barely above a whisper. “You’re rich as fuck, aren’t you?”

    “Guilty,” Adora said, cringing a little. “Sorry. I thought Glimmer told you.”

    “I’m gonna fucking kill her.” Catra shook her head, trying to wipe the stunned expression off her face. “I can’t believe she set me up on a blind date with a goddamn millionaire.”

    “Yeah,” Adora said awkwardly. “Oops.”

    “It’s—” Catra shook her head. “Okay, Glimmer aside, how would you paying for my tuition even work? I mean, we—we’ve only been on one date, and it’s not even over yet.”

    “It’s a crazy idea,” Adora said. “I know. Just—just forget I said anything.”

    Maybe it was the buzz of alcohol, or maybe it was the shock of finding out she was on a blind date with a rich person, but Catra couldn’t stop herself from blurting, “Well, I didn’t say no.”

    A beat.

    Adora blinked, looking up at her. “What?”

     

    Or: Catra is a physics PhD student struggling to balance life, work, and loans. When her friend sets her up on a blind date, she doesn't expect it to be with the most attractive millionaire she's ever seen. They work out an arrangement.

    Summary

    “If you’re not here for a treaty and you’re not commanding the attack, what do you want, Adora?”

    “You don’t want to talk about land?” Adora asks lightly. At Catra’s narrowed eyes, she continues. “Fine. I guess we can just catch up with each other then.”

    Catra’s mind is screaming 'what the actual fuck' but she pretends to wait patiently.

    “I’m going to get married,” is what somehow leaves Adora’s mouth. Like she’s talking about the weather or something and not shifting everything in Catra’s brain.

    or

    The war finally ends, not with one final dramatic stand but with Hordak crushed in the foundry like a coward. So if everyone could just stop lecturing about friendship and forgiveness and stay out of the Fright Zone, that would be cool, ok? But a year later, in saunters that blonde idiot, dragging Catra out of her peaceful depression and into a bunch of princess nonsense. She-Ra is gone. Etheria has a chance for peace. But Adora’s got a new secret mission. Would be nice if she’d bother letting Catra in on what it is though since, you know, Catra’s kinda the key to it all…
