    Summary

    “Sorry. What’s your name?” Kara lowers the last bite of her hot dog. “You know mine, it’s only fair.”

    The woman shifts her weight, pursing her lips and seeming to think about it. “I’m Lena,” she offers at last, watching Kara’s face.

    “Well, it’s nice to meet you, Lena.” Kara gives her an enormous smile.

    “Likewise.” Lena smiles back, then takes a breath. “I hope this isn’t the last time we talk.”

    “Me, either.”

    Kara watches Lena go, sees her pause at the street, then dart across awkwardly in her heels. “Lena,” she says to herself, trying it out. She goes to take another bite of her hot dog and feels the ketchup drip from her thumb, dropping into her lap. 

    Or:

    Kara Danvers is in a slump: she’s just been fired from her job as a producer for a local news show, and she can’t get a single call back from prospective employers. But an offer from Luthor Broadcasting Corporation to help save their failing morning show might be just the thing she needs to turn it all around.

    Based on the movie Morning Glory.

    Summary

    “Okay. What’s your name?”

    Lena’s response is knee-jerk. “None of your damn business.”

    Supergirl runs her fingers through her hair again, and this time it comes out a little worse for wear – it sticks up wildly near her temple, and Lena can see a slight cowlick. It’s strangely humanizing.

    “Look, my boss isn’t going to like that I’m working with an unknown as it is. If we’re going to work together, I at least need something to call you.”

    When Lena shakes Supergirl’s hand, she feels the warmth of victory when the hero seems shocked at the firmness of her grip. But alarmingly an even stronger warmth radiates from their joined palms, spreading up her arm, and Lena pulls her hand back faster than what’s generally considered polite, curling it into a fist.

    “You can call me Kieran.”

    OR

    For over a hundred years, Lena has been trying to escape the suffocating hierarchy of the fae – and ever since her mother moved LuthorCorp to National City the only way to do so is to work with Supergirl, with whom Lena shares a soul-deep connection she can’t control.

    What’s a vampire to do?
