    Summary

    “But tell me this,” Adora starts, staring boldly into the woman’s eyes, a hint of Force-suggestion in her voice. “Can you actually fly this ship through that blockade?”

    Adora isn’t prepared when the captain throws her head back and laughs, completely unaffected. An agonizing moment passes before her mouth finally closes into a smirk, eyes sharp as tacks with her hands placed firmly on her hips—the epitome of cockiness.

    “I can fly my way through anything, princess.”

    ***

    or Star Wars AU: Adora is a surviving Jedi of Order 66 who fights alongside the Rebellion to bring peace back to the galaxy. Catra is one hell of a pilot and a crafty smuggler running away from her past. When their paths cross over the years, sparks fly, until a wedge comes between them. But when Adora is taken hostage by Emperor Horde Prime in a gambit to save Queen Glimmer of the Rebellion, Catra will do whatever it takes to get her back.

    Summary

    As time goes on, he thinks about the date less and less. When February 21st, 1964 rolls around, he thinks 'four years left' for about thirty seconds before going back to what he was doing. He doesn’t have the time to count down to his own death, any more than he has the time to wonder if the strange man he’d met in Dallas was anything more than a snake oil salesman, far too devoted to his craft. Dave has to hand it to him: he gave one hell of a performance.

    or

    In Vietnam, in Dallas, in San Francisco, Klaus and Dave think of each other. Never at the same time.

    Summary

    Bow and Glimmer have grown apart, and the years separating Adora and Catra don’t even begin to describe the rift between them. But maybe, as Mara’s ship makes its way back home, the pairs can start to find each other again.

    Or: the heat goes out. Character development and cuddling ensues.

    Summary

    It’s cold.

    From the way it bubbled and frothed in the tanks and in the large ceremonial pool at the center of the room, Catra assumed that the sickly, glowy green liquid would be searing –purification by fire or whatever. It sounded like something that would be up Prime’s alley.

    But the liquid enveloping her feet and lapping at her ankles isn’t even remotely warm; it’s ice cold, cold like the wind in the Northern Reach, cold like sharp, cutting steel.

    For a fleeting moment, she wonders what it’ll feel like once it makes its way into her lungs.

    Summary

    Adora had really been hoping for that reaction, honestly. She slid another one out of her pocket, smiling as they unwrapped their bars and ate them. “Does this help a little?” she asked after a minute. “I know it’s a shock going from ration bars to… whatever Prime gave you to rebellion food.”

    “It… helps I think,” Catra said slowly. “I mean, these are still the worst things I’ve ever eaten but… the evil you know, right?”

    That had been Catra’s approach to life for so long. Adora had been hoping things could change. But maybe she was expecting too much. Her world had been drastically changing while she tried to cling to some sense of normalcy since Adora had left. She couldn’t expect Catra to just accept everything.

    ----------------------------

    Change is hard. Adora is doing her best to make it easier, though.
