    Summary

    “Oh, for fuck’s sake, Adora, just turn on my daily mix or something!” Catra was already done with this road trip and they were only... 20 minutes into it. But that had been 20 minutes of Adora scrolling through playlist after playlist, skipping songs every fifteen seconds after she started them. Catra had no idea what she was looking for, but she did know that it was really fucking annoying. She also had absolutely no idea why she had agreed to do this; shut in a car for six hours plus, stuck with Adora’s nonsense? All to meet up with Adora’s merry band of idiots at some cabin in the middle of bum-fuck nowhere. She had to have better ways of spending her spring break.

    “Are you bored yet?” Adora whispers, leaning a little further into Catra’s space. She swears she hears the other woman’s heart rate pick up speed, even over the thumping bass of… some kind of synth-pop sea shanty.

    “I was getting there,” she replies slowly, skimming the soft skin at the base of Adora’s neck with her thumb absentmindedly; Adora swallows and Catra traces the movement with her eyes before looking back up. “Why?”

    “You said you’d leave if it got boring,” Adora murmurs, leaning into the touch ever so slightly. “If you want to leave… I’ll go with you. If you want.” Catra’s answering smile is slow and dangerous.

    “Oh I’m so bored, princess. I think you might need to rescue me.”

    Summary

    “And what are you in for?” the woman asks snidely, crossing her arms and sneering. “Frat party gone wrong? Drunk driving? No wait - embarrassing sexual escapades.” Adora’s kind of glad that whatever’s wrong with her at the moment seems to make her completely incapable of blushing.

    “I am completely yellow,” she says with a raised eyebrow. “What the hell kind of sexual escapades would turn me yellow?” the other woman snorts.

    “Embarrassing ones, obviously.” Adora rolls her eyes and there’s silence for a moment.

    “I’m Adora,” she tries. The other woman stares at her.

    “Okay. Good for you.”

    Adora's gallbladder tries its best to ruin her life, her hospital buddy is both angry and impossibly beautiful, and sometimes apples aren't just apples. Adora blames Chris Martin.

    Summary

    "We’re not together, Adora just said a bunch of weird crap to me last night about how we’re not just friends.” She crosses her arms and slouches in her seat.

    “Uh…that kind of sounds like you’re together.” Bow points out gently, clearly trying to avoid lighting Catra’s fuse.

    “We’re not in a relationship!” She pops off anyway.

    “Yeah, no, just a domestic partnership.” Glimmer snarks.

    “Will you fuck off? She explicitly said it’s not romantic. She literally fucking said- you know what? It doesn’t matter, it didn’t make any sense anyway.”

    Catra and Adora navigate the confusing in between of being roommates who may be more than friends but are certainly less than lovers.

    Summary

    Her hand flew to it immediately and she could feel the slightly raised imprint of the name now on her skin, for life: the name of her soulmate. Her skin prickled over her body and a nervous cold sweat ran the length of her spine, so she took a moment to collect herself before looking down to read the name. 

    And when she did, her jaw dropped to the floor. 

    “Oh you’ve got to be fucking kidding me.”

    Summary

    “I see why you would choose this room,” Catra tells Adora. Moving to close the minimal gap between them so their shoulders touch. “The view is amazing.”

    “Well, uh, actually.” Adora starts, rubbing the back of her neck with her hand. “I chose this room because, it’s uhm, the only room in the castle that faces the Fright Zone.”

    OR

    The events after the final episode where Catra now faces the consequences and feelings with everything she's done the past few days, weeks, years and the mistakes she's made.

    Summary

    Their eyes lock and Catra feels herself plummeting in their depths. She's drowning, lungs burning with the innate need to breathe. But she doesn't try to claw herself to the surface, doesn't fight for the air her body cries out for. Instead, she sinks deeper and deeper and deeper, crushed by the depths in a tight, loving embrace. Steady and certain. Constant.

    She'll drown endlessly to never be let go.

    The next words she blurts without thought, but with every ounce of her chest. "Marry me."

    Summary

    “When one finds their soulmate, they don’t immediately know that is the case. Some believe it is a way for the universe, for the great First Ones to test our ability to listen to its calling, to let us steer the wheel to our own fates. Others believe it is an act of cruelty—to try our patience, to punish us for being unable to love without any inhibitions. No matter what one believes, it doesn’t rid us of the fact that finding one's other half does not allow for instant gratification.”

     —

    Catra, jaded by her past, moves to Bright Moon to start a new life, and finds herself growing increasingly closer to her neighbour, Adora. Initially, she's apprehensive, but no matter what she does, something draws her to the girl, and a revelation causes it to make a lot of sense—and none at all.
