    Summary

    In the Horde, Force Captain Adora trains for her newfound destiny: She-Ra, the Horde's ultimate weapon. Pushed to her absolute limits by friend and foe alike, can she emerge victorious in the war for Etheria? Will she get a happy ending? Does she deserve one?

    In the Rebellion, Princess Glimmer is continuously stifled by Queen Angella's cautious, defensive leadership. The maverick pushes the boundary of insolence, growing bolder and bolder as the Rebellion's hopes become more and more desperate. How far is she willing to go to protect the ones she loves? In the end, will the princess lose herself in her quest for vengeance?

    Summary

    Adora finds the sword the first time she's in the whispering woods, and Adora returns safely with it to the Horde. On a related note, Shadow-Weaver has no need for Catra anymore, and her assassination attempt strands her in Rebellion custody, under the watchful eye of Queen Angella.

    It goes pretty poorly for everyone involved after that.

    CW: Non canon typical bloodshed, death. Darker world, exploration of propaganda, Shadow Weaver is a bitch. Canon typical abuse patterns. Shadow Weaver is a bitch. Self harming and self destructive behaviors. Self devaluation. Increasingly deviating from canon. Not a 1 for 1 canon rewrite.

    Summary

    You all know the twist. Two Horde cadets, one recently made a Force Captain, the other destined to be left behind, “borrow” a skiff and go for a joyride. Instead of Adora, Catra is the one who falls, the one who finds the Sword, the one burdened with a destiny meant for another.

    This is not that story.

    When Catra reached her sixteenth birthday (not that the Horde tells her what that is), Shadow Weaver takes Catra’s first life. What happens next changes the fate of Etheria...

    Summary

    The battle between the Horde and the Princess Alliance approaches climax, with Adora leading the Horde while Catra wields the Sword against her; but a third side has grown inside both like a cancer, and seeks to use a secret left behind by the First Ones, no matter the cost.

    And unknown to everyone, an evil greater than any approaches, ready to stretch its hand out over the squabbling forces of the planet and crush them all.

    (Catra and Adora, She-Ra's true purpose, and the face of evil.)

    Summary

    Deep in the Whispering Woods, centuries ago, a sword was damaged. And a spirit began to slip through the cracks.

    It wasn’t free, not quite. Still tied to the prison they created.

    The two who would make history came to the world. It knew which one she wanted. But it had a choice now.

    So it made one.

    Summary

    In the aftermath of the Portal, the Rebellion faces its darkest hour. Now fighting a war on two fronts, the cracks in their armor, and their friendships, are beginning to show.

    Glimmer struggles with leadership; Catra begins to question what she’s been told about the First Ones, Halfmoon, and She-Ra; and Bow tires of playing peacemaker. Meanwhile, in the shadows of the Whispering Woods, the ex-Second-in-Command of the Horde, Adora, fights to right the wrongs she has done, but risks losing herself in the process.

    And beneath them all, the Heart waits.

    TLDR; Catra is She-Ra and Adora is a werewolf.

    Summary

    They point to a small table across the banquet hall with four people sitting at it. There’s a muscular blonde woman with large purple veins covering her exposed arms, a pale man with blue hair and pointy ears, a woman wearing a long robe and a mask that covers her entire face, and a man with white slicked-back hair that goes down to his shoulders. All four of them have red eyes and very sharp fangs.

    It’s then that Catra hears Double Trouble speak again, “Those are the Horde representatives. They’re all vampires.”

    Catra turns back to them, “What’s the Horde? And what’s… a vampire?”
    ----
    OR: Catra is the Princess of Halfmoon and Adora is in the Horde. Chaos ensues.

    Summary

    The ride is exhilarating. Deep blacks seep through the motion of constant greys into a collage of colour that dips into neon greens and stretches up to stark reds as it travels. Catra had never seen the fright zone like this, so striking and distinguishable from one moment to the next. No monotonous drills or endless gray, instead something capable of infinite change and difference. It felt as though if she were to blink she'd miss something important, a moment just different enough from the last that she’d notice it’s absence without ever needing to have known its presence. So Catra just stared instead, never waiting for something specific, or expecting something to happen, just living in the moment. And what a strange luxury that small act had become.

    Essentially a 'what if Catra left the horde' but I make the characters relationships very complex and all their motivations hopefully match up to the new context. This will mean a lot of manipulation throughout and layers of misunderstanding between one another because they can't communicate all that well but I promise this fic does have a happy ending no matter how dark it gets at times.

    Summary

    Adora doesn’t want this. This isn’t what she signed up for. But it’s the right thing to do, the only thing to do. She didn’t want to steal. She didn’t want to fight. Most of all, she didn’t want to kill Catra. But Adora doesn’t get to want things. She doesn’t get to refuse orders, regardless of her thoughts. All she does is what she’s told, what she knows is right. That’s how she stays worthy.

    Etheria chose Catra. It wants her to protect it, to stop the Horde. The Rebellion chose Catra to be their strongest fighter, their greatest asset and most exalted member. The people love her, even if deep down she knows it’s just She-Ra they love. Still, her life has worth here, worth beyond being a package deal with Adora. They didn’t want Adora. They wanted Catra. She was finally worth something.

    Summary

    Catra wasn’t really paying attention when Entrapta warned that the portal would “Unhinge time and space,” and even if she was, she wouldn’t have expected to find herself in this situation. In a room with four variations of herself and Adora. What makes it worse is that half of them are couples. It’s like the universe is taunting her.

    Summary

    (Title changed from She-Ra IF)
    "If" is such a powerful word. What if the reasonings for our duo were different? What if the personalities of our two favorite females were altered ever-so slightly? Would their adventure be any easier, or harder? How would Catra go about trying to be a hero? What sort of struggles would change because of a simple switch? And most of all, what if Catra became She-Ra?

    Summary

    The world shifts. The balance is off. Roles are reversed, but it's dangerous.
    Adora gazes down at Catra. Her eyes are unwavering, but pierce regardless.
    Something was wrong. Something was very, very wrong.

    The Magicatra AU fic that no one asked for, but that I started writing anyways. Shout out to all the fanart and comics people drew of Horde Lord Adora, you're the ones to blame for this.

    Summary

    With lightning speed, Adora flipped the sword into her right hand, twisting it til it rested with perfect balance in her grip. In one swift motion, she snapped her muscled arm into a lithe extension and aimed the sword’s harsh point directly at Catra’s exposed throat.
     
    Catra stiffened, eyes wide. 
     
    Adora’s sword grazed the soft skin of her neck, its razor-sharp tip tracing a cold path up her throat until it rested firmly under Catra’s chin. She couldn’t control the erratic pounding of her heart.
     
    "Come on, kitten," Adora crooned, forcing her chin up further with the point of the sword. Catra grunted, straining against the sword’s pressure. "Look at me, really look at me. Do you really want to fall, not ever truly seeing who took you?"

     
    Or:

    Since claiming the powers of She-Ra and leaving the Horde, Catra's life has completely changed. The only part of her old identity that she can't seem to cut off is her tie to Adora, the Horde's newest and sharpest Commander.
