    Summary

    Catra doesn't hang up. She waits, listens to the sound of her ex-girlfriend's breathing becoming more regular, waits so much longer than she should. "Adora?" She asks quietly. When she gets no response from the sleeping girl, she takes a deep breath and whispers "I love you," before finally disconnecting the call.

    Sometimes if you love someone, you let them go, even when they don't want you to.

    Summary

    Coming to terms with your childhood is a lot more difficult when you grew up in an orphanage/cult with very strict ideas about religion. Adora ran away, Catra burned the bridge, and neither of them are sure how to act when they meet again five years later.

    College-AU about friendship, found family, and how much five years can really change a person.

    Summary

    The thing was: Adora put herself back together wrong. The simulation — not Catra, not really, not flesh and blood and bone — always told her, “I wonder what would’ve happened if you had stayed,” and Adora learned to respond, “I never would’ve.”

    Adora stays with Light Hope. The world stutters, and continues on.

    Summary

    Catra had never hated anyone more in her life, not even herself. She was sure that she had somehow died and been sent to Hell, forced to stare at the grown-up version of her childhood best friend on a dating app she only ever used for the brief validation of matching with pretty girls instead of actually talking to them. Maybe matching with Adora was punishment for just that.

    or: catra and adora match on tinder years after a falling out.

    Summary

    it’s always been there.

    and lately—maybe for awhile, adora’s not really even sure when it started or how or—all that this something makes adora want to do is kiss the smirk right off catra’s face. or punch it off.

    sometimes both.

    or: the one where catra and adora are sneaking around together during the war.
