    Summary

                “Are you going to keep staring at me all night?” the witch said, breaking Kara out of her reverie with a start.

     

                They’d been silent for a few moments now, and she’d fallen into a trance that she would’ve sworn was witchcraft if she didn’t know any better. No, this bewitchment was of Kara’s own volition, enraptured by the woman’s alabaster skin and raven hair plastered to her face. The dark cloak she wore was black with water and seemed to swallow her, making her seem almost childish, playing dress-up in her mother’s clothes. The thought of a childhood so normal for the young witch made Kara startle slightly, blinking rain out of her eyes as she suppressed a shiver.

     

                “Because, you know, if you want to kiss me, you may as well ask. The sun’s setting and it’s cold, and the hills are boring. So, by all means, get on with it.”

     

                Kara choked on a splutter and felt her face warm with embarrassment, chasing away the edge of the cold wind. “I don’t want to kiss you! I’m here to- to slay you.”

    Summary

    “You’re the Kara Danvers?” Kara looks back up. The woman has one eyebrow raised and it's...distracting. Kara feels ketchup drop onto the napkin.

    “Yes?” Kara says, taking a bite. “I mean, I think so,” she mumbles through the food. It’s rude to eat and talk, but she’s starving. “I’ve never met anyone else with my name.”

    The woman laughs again. It makes Kara feel warm. “I mean, from Daybreak. You fired Morgan Edge about an hour ago?”

    When Kara nods, the woman looks impressed and a little amused. It’s a good look on her.

    “Already a hero on your first day,” she says, and Kara feels like glowing.

    Or:

    Kara Danvers is in a slump: she’s just been fired from her job as a producer for a local news show, and she can’t get a single call back from prospective employers. But an offer from Luthor Broadcasting Corporation to help save their failing morning show might be just the thing she needs to turn it all around.

    Based on the 2010 movie Morning Glory.

    Summary

    Every human is born with an extra lobe in their brain. This lobe's only function is to establish a psychic connection between said human and their perfect match, their soulmate, and this connection takes 22 years to be completed.

    On the last minute of the last day of the year, the ones who are ready exchange bodies with their soulmates for 24 hours and try to find each other. This event is called The Mating and leads to a worldwide day of festivities where people celebrate love.

    Kara is 25 now and hasn't taken part in The Mating just yet, which is completely normal due to age gaps, but she has been waiting for this moment her whole life and she feels that this year is going to happen, she can't explain, she just knows.

    On January 1st, she wakes up in a bedroom with barred windows, a locked door, a broken mirror, and a father who's not willing to let his daughter go.

    Meanwhile, Lena sees herself in a strange house, surrounded by strange people who speak a strange language.

    And she has no idea of what The Mating is.

    Summary

    “Andrea Rojas kissed me today.”

    Three things happen at once: Alex, mid sip, chokes on her whiskey, and spits half of it into her hand, and in turn, all over the Scrabble tiles she’s holding, Kelly lets out a shocked “Oh my God” from where she stands at Kara’s fridge, and Lena goes absolutely still.
