    Summary

    “It’s not –” She huffs. Frustrated with herself. Starts again. “This is stupid.” She says, clicking her tongue, shaking her head. “I shouldn’t do this. I don’t have the right to do this and that’s why I haven’t – but I just –”

    She looks at Lena beseechingly, a crease between her eyebrows, bright cerulean eyes just pleading with her to get it, whatever it may be. But honestly, it’s been a long day. A long month. A long five years and Lena just doesn’t have the mental capacity to guess anymore. Her heart is in her throat, her palms are starting to sweat, and she feels this sweet, aching hope just dying to break apart in her chest. But she’s been disappointed for far too long. Stuck in limbo, never actually getting anywhere. So, rather than playing this guessing game that Kara and her incoherent speech seem intent to rope her into, she just tells her as simply as she can. “Okay, usually I find your rambles endearing, but darling, you’re not making any sense.”

    Or -

    The less platonic series finale that everyone is writing.

    Summary

    “Are we… are we okay?”

    “We’re stuck in a nuclear apocalypse, likely a result of my father’s gross negligence, and now used as a playground for an egomaniac’s deranged, power fantasies.”

    “Lena.” Her name is a slow sigh. A patient, painstakingly fragile one at that.

    Lena closes her eyes, inhaling against the torrent of emotions fighting towards a surface she’s not ready to break.

    “Us being stuck here together doesn’t change anything.”

    ---

    Or, Kara and Lena find themselves stranded on a barren Earth where they are forced to work together to survive and finally confront the toxic wasteland their relationship has become.

    Summary

    Kara is back from the Phantom Zone and Lena thinks the SuperFriends are acting weird. She finds herself on the outside looking in—Kara making time for everyone but her—and rather than confront anyone and actually talk about what is happening, she steals off to a small Midwestern town for space to process what that means for her future with Kara and the group. Kara, of course, can't help but follow.

    Summary

    Kara’s not sure why people assume her other senses are heightened, but not her sense of touch. She doesn’t tend to correct them, though. She doesn’t like talking about it. It feels somehow too revealing, and unavoidably intimate, to explain the overwhelming strength of her sensory response to touch. So no, she doesn’t talk about it.

    But talking isn’t the only way to communicate, and one Movie Night with Lena, her body decides to spill the secret whether she wants it to or not.

     

    Author’s Note:

     

    ** Chapter 1 can be read as a stand alone **

    I originally intended this as a one-shot, but my brain would not shut up about these two, so…
    I’m adding additions to this world as further chapters, not a series, because Chapters 2 - 4/5? are not really their own separate stories. But Chapter 1 is. Feel free to take it as the beginning, middle, and end.

    However much you read, hope you like it!
