Being a beta was a blessing in the Horde. “Betas are best”, that’s what they always said. Alphas easily got distracted by other omegas and omegas would submit to any alpha. Betas felt no such urges, and while being an alpha was certainly better than being an omega, being a beta was the perfect status for the Horde. Just one more thing that made Adora the perfect soldier.
Perfect soldier but not perfect girlfriend.
She loved Catra more than anyone in the universe. She wanted to connect herself in every way, give everything to Catra, but betas could not have mates. Adora could never help Catra with her heats. Catra could only be her girlfriend, never her mate. The thought broke her heart
Adora thinks she's a beta, but after her 20th birthday she starts showing signs of being an alpha.

Rare neutral ground between the warring forces of the Eternian Empire and the Galactic Horde, Etheria Station is a safe haven nestled in the center of the Whispering System.
Adora finds herself a deserter of both the Horde and the Eternian forces; seeking refuge in the only place in the galaxy left to her, she struggles to figure out what kind of life she wants to lead on Etheria Station now that she isn't a soldier any more. It doesn't take long for Catra to show up on the station, claiming that she's defected from the Horde, but Adora can't shake the feeling that of all the Horde's covert operatives, Catra is the one most uniquely qualified to successfully pull off a delicate 'retrieval' of a wayward Force Captain Adora.

“Long night, honey?” Catra called all her customers honey. It was diner thing more than a Catra thing. The drunk mumbled something incoherent and Catra rolled her eyes. Just because she was used to dealing with drunks on a nearly nightly basis didn’t mean they weren’t annoying as hell. She hardened her tone and raised her voice a little, “You’re going to have to speak up if you want to order anything.”
The drunk finally sat up, pushed their hood back, and looked at Catra, blue eyes bloodshot and tear stained. Catra recognized her instantly.
or, a late night diner AU

Catra dropped her laptop, her jaw practically on the floor. Adora clasped a hand over her mouth and stood ramrod straight.
Adora wants to spend the rest of her life with Catra. She might just need some reassurance before taking the plunge, though.

Her hands barely made it up to her mouth in time to stifle a yelp.
The forum had loaded. And right there, the very first post, she saw it. She recognized it instantly. She’d been carrying it on her back for eighteen years now, after all.
Or, a Soulmate AU where Catra is afraid of opening up to people and Adora has no idea what's going on.

Bow and Glimmer convince all their friends to go with them on their honeymoon to a couple's resort - but after Adora's already paid the non-refundable deposit, her longterm girlfriend dumps her, leaving her in a bind. The friend group scrambles to find a replacement "girlfriend" so that Adora doesn't have to lose her deposit and miss out on the week of fun in the sun with her friends that she was promised - which she obviously needs now, more than ever, on the heels of her breakup - and Scorpia finds a friend of hers willing to pretend to be Adora's girlfriend so that she can get a half price vacation, even if it means sharing a room with only one bed. The only problem? This friend of Scorpia's is absolutely gorgeous... and a complete and total asshole. But they have to keep up the act, or ruin the whole trip.
