    Summary

    Catra had imagined lots of scenarios for her first bus ride to school. Annoying people screaming on the seats around of her, getting kicked out by the bus driver for punching a random guy (wouldn’t be the first time), or whatever other torture school buses could provide.

    She never imagined she’d be listening to Taylor Swift and sharing earphones with a complete stranger. A very cute stranger. And nothing felt weird or awkward., like if Adora and Catra had known each other for a long time already. Maybe the universe wasn’t so mean after all.

    or

    Catra likes to pretend she's too cool to have feelings.

    Summary

    "They can't be serious," Catra complained. "Did you notice that Glimmer's list of suitors didn't include anything about personality? Or hobbies?"
    She was looking straight at Adora, as though expecting an answer.
    Catra did speak to Adora like this sometimes, like they were equals. She did it quite often actually, especially when it was just the two of them. But Adora always felt uncertain how to respond. The princess was such an otherworldly figure to her. Larger than life. More beautiful than the stories insisted. It seemed incredible that the princess even knew Adora existed. Surreal.
    And yet, at times, it even felt natural.
    "I did notice," Adora said. "A glaring omission, your majesty, I agree."

    Catra grinned.

    "Tell me Adora," said the princess. "If you had a list of suitors laid out in front of you, what would you want to see on their biographies?"

    OR:
    Adora is a knight in Princess Catra's personal guard. Catra doesn't want to marry some random prince. Adora doesn't want her to get married at all.

    Summary

    They hadn’t had any time alone over the past two weeks, as Adora’s husband was uncharacteristically present. Adora resumed her duties as his housewife and property. Catra resumed her duties as Finn’s full-time nanny, hired by Mr. Hope to keep an eye on his child and wife.

    Adora gently stopped Catra’s head with her hand, running a thumb over her cheekbone. “I missed you,” she whispered.

    “I’m right here,” Catra promised, delighting in Adora’s sharp cry at the first flick of Catra’s tongue.

    Catra was keeping an eye on her - just not in the way her husband had intended upon her employment.

    Title from the song "Be My Baby" by The Ronettes.
