    Summary

    I want to do with you what spring does to cherry trees.
    What does that even mean?
    It's taking a simple I love you and putting lead-lined glasses on it to keep its power contained.
    No offense, Mr. Neruda, but that's just weak.

    Kara doesn't like poetry. Until she does.

    Summary

    Laying in the park's field like this is a usual routine for Kara—one that the Danvers and the local kids have learned not to question—so it’s a surprise when Kara hears a breathy voice ask, “Are you okay?”

    Kara hums in acknowledgment.

    “Why are you laying on the ground?”

    Kara opens her eyes ever so slightly. There’s a girl standing at her feet who looks to be shorter than Kara, with light blonde hair tied into a high, tight bun. Her blue knee-length dress looks like it’s dancing in the breeze.

    “Can I lay on the ground with you?”

    Summary

    “Help me understand,” Kara says. “Are you saying everyone falls in love with their best friend?”

    “I’m saying that queer women have a special affinity for it,” Lena repeats, fishing the cherry out of the bottom of her drink. “The whole ‘falling for your straight best friend’ is basically a rite of passage.”

    “Says who?”

    “Everyone.” She puts the cherry in her mouth, bites it off the stem. “The L Word was like, built on the premise that a friend group of queer woman in LA dated each other in some sort of terrible repeating circle for, god, however many seasons that went on. And it’s been my experience that when two people are attracted to each other, and they’re close, feelings are likely to develop.”

    “That’s just, I mean, come on.” Kara’s cheeks are a little pink. “A trope and a tv show? That’s your evidence?”

    “So you’ve never been in love with your best friend?” Lena looks down at her empty glass.

    “No!” Kara sounds affronted. “No, I have never been in love with my best friend.”

    Or, A love story, told in three acts.

    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 connection she can’t control.

    What’s a vampire to do?
