    Summary

    They each broke up with the other once, each for their own dumb in-their-own-heads reasons. And it just feels like it should - Sara doesn't know. Maybe they cancel each other out, somehow. Maybe this could just be easy again, it could just be Sara in love with Ava and Ava looking at Sara with hope and caring in her eyes and maybe they could just fall back towards each other.

    Maybe.

    (Or: the story of how Sara and Ava made some plans, and kept them in the aftermath of Season 3)

    Summary

    Lena is on her fifth sleepless night in a row when her dear friend Jess suggests she visit a doctor for her troubles. Her suggestion is given slyly, a smirk painted on Jess’s face. This smirk has not always ended well for Lena, but she is desperate, overcome with shocking thoughts and tossing and turning, and so she accepts a recommendation: a Dr. Danvers, of Marylebone.

    This moment is one she will spend her life looking back on, at times rueing and others thanking a giving and kind God for.

    or, Lena is a Victorian woman with hysteria, and Kara is a kind Doctor with just the help she needs.

    Summary

    And belonging is such a weird concept, no? On a pure denotative level, it implies ownership, and society—only when it’s convenient to do so—discourages notions of owning a person. You belong to yourself, they say, no one should own you.

    But people cannot go on without belonging. It’s all Lena’s ever wanted. She wants to belong to Kara. There is no levy, no negotiations, no cage, no footsteps to follow. Kara erases the notion of transaction from the act of belonging, rips up the contracts and fine print, and Lena wants and wants more. I’m yours, she wants to say, whisper into her skin, shout out into the sky that she disappears into. I’m yours, I’m yours, I’m yours.

    Summary

    Hermione is sixteen years old when a wall of Time Turners breaks near her. She glances toward the chaos and sees time floating freely from the small golden charms as clearly as she sees a shower of glass and flashes of red and green light all around her. Then she hears something both distant and familiar; all the truth of space and time and herself swell up within her. Tears fall from her eyes before she collapses onto the floor. When she awakens, Hermione has two hearts.
