    Summary

    The fire climbs to an even greater height, crackling and whipping in the light desert breeze. Catra watches it with rapt attention, fearful to let her gaze linger on Adora for too long.

    “But we don’t have to fight, you know,” Adora says. “I mean...what’s the point of it now? There’s no rebellion here. And no Horde. There’s just you and me, and a lot of things that wouldn’t hesitate to kill either of us.”

    “So, what?” demands Catra. “We pretend to be a team again? After everything?”

    “If it keeps us alive,” says Adora. “I’m willing to put all that aside if you are.”


    Catra and Adora end up exiled to the Crimson Waste together. If they're going to conquer gangs, quicksand, serpents, and other desert threats, they'll need to learn to trust one another again.

    Canon-Divergence, Post-Season 1. Created for the She-Ra Big Bang 2021. A collaboration with the incredible @windbloom

    Summary

    Bow and Glimmer convince all their friends to go with them on their honeymoon to a couple's resort - but after Adora's already paid the non-refundable deposit, her longterm girlfriend dumps her, leaving her in a bind. The friend group scrambles to find a replacement "girlfriend" so that Adora doesn't have to lose her deposit and miss out on the week of fun in the sun with her friends that she was promised - which she obviously needs now, more than ever, on the heels of her breakup - and Scorpia finds a friend of hers willing to pretend to be Adora's girlfriend so that she can get a half price vacation, even if it means sharing a room with only one bed. The only problem? This friend of Scorpia's is absolutely gorgeous... and a complete and total asshole. But they have to keep up the act, or ruin the whole trip.

    Summary

    After Horde Prime is defeated, there's still much left to be resolved. What to do with all his abandoned clones? What punishment does Hordak deserve for his role in Etheria's suffering? How to restore the Fright Zone to Scorpia's family and what to do with all the indoctrinated soldiers still living there? What to do about the possibility of more magic-based worlds that were converted to weapons by the First Ones - or the possibility that Horde Prime was smart enough to make a backup of his consciousness? And the most important question of all - will Catra and Adora ever be allowed some alone time to explore their newly admitted love for one another?

    COMPLETE as of 2020-09-10: Written as a sort of "Season Six", this story covers the post-war fallout, a long space adventure to find and destroy Prime's backup consciousness, a slow-burn exploration of what a Hordak redemption arc might look like, and lots and lots of Catra/Adora character study, hurt/comfort, fluff, and occasionally smut. There are some violent action scenes, but no character death.
