    Summary

    "Lena," Kara asks, "what are you to me?"

    Lena's heartbeat stutters. "You—you said there was no memory loss," she stammers. "Kara, what—what happened?"

    "I absorbed my sun," Kara tells her calmly. "I became a God."

     

    (In which Kara becomes a deity of protection, and it complicates things just a little. Featuring: a determined big sister, an endlessly supportive love interest, and some dad advice.)

    Summary

    Lena makes Kara feel like she’s vibrating, like her nerve endings are alight with electricity and it’s intoxicating to say the least.

    (Tentatively, 4 interruptions + 1 free night.)

    Summary

    Lena had once told her that her mother was not the devil incarnate. And, in a way, she was right: Lillian was not the devil incarnate… she was somehow worse. At least the devil was considerate enough to inscribe “Abandon all hope, ye who enter here” on the gates of hell.

    Lillian Luthor came with no such warning.

    (Or Lena writes a list of everything Lillian ruined for her, and Kara helps her create new memories.)

    Summary

    Jessica Hoang takes her job very seriously. It’s odd, or uncommon, as she’s learned- people are always so surprised when she seems more loyal to Lena Luthor than the advancement of her own career. She used to think that the whole trope of secretaries selling out their bosses for personal gain existed only in bad TV shows, but, as always, she overestimates the human race.

    So when Kara Danvers the reporter starts showing up more often, she’s wary and a little irritated. Yes, Lena said to let her in at any time, so she does so dutifully, but she’s seen her share of reporters and she’s not impressed with the bunch. Words are their trade, and it wouldn’t take much to motivate a reporter to twist Lena’s image around for a pretty buck.

    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.
