    Summary

    “Where did you get that?”

    Sam furrows her eyebrows, looks up at her with such intensity of confusion that it’s visible in HD clarity despite the buffering of her screen. “You…sent it to me?”

    No,” Lena says, winded and on edge, staring pointedly at the letter grasped between Sam’s fingers. What the fuck. What the fuck. What the fuc—“I didn’t send that to you.”

    Sam opens her mouth, and then closes it. Lena honest-to-god feels like she’s about to faint.

    alternatively: [TATBILB au] Things go wrong when the letters get out, they get worse when Andrea comes crashing back into her life with no warning, they get worser when Kara is the best goddamn fake girlfriend in the whole wide world.

    Summary

    “So?” Alex prompts.

    Kara looks up from the styrofoam container, already having broken apart her chopsticks. “So what?”

    “What do you mean so wha—Kara!” Kara freezes, chopsticks hanging in midair clutching a piece of kung pao chicken. There is real frustration and confusion in Alex’s voice. “Imagine my surprise when I sign in at the front desk and the nurse says that my sister-in-law is stable right now. Wanna tell me why you’re playing house to visit your best friend in the hospital?”

    Kara sets the chicken down. “Alex…”

    “Kara, you have ten seconds to explain why the entire staff thinks you and Lena are married and the answer had better not actually involve marriage or I swear to god I’ll…”

    ____________

    In which Kara is a whole entire idiot, Alex is a permanent mood, and Lena is just glad Kara is there for her, as her fake wife, while she recovers from another quarterly attempt on her life.

    Summary

    “How long have you two been together?”

    Lena brings a bottle of water to her lips, stalling. An unwise decision because it gives Kara the opportunity to answer, blue eyes bright with a smile to match.

    “Five years.”

    Lena inhales sharply, allowing a mouthful of water to be sucked down her windpipe. She coughs, so violently she’s certain she’ll hack up a lung. Kara rubs the space between her shoulder blades tenderly, asking if she’s alright but Lena can’t form a coherent thought much less a sentence.

    Summary

    While babysitting the littlest super Kara and Lena enter a bet with Nia over whether they can convince the media of National City that they are on the verge of starting their own family. Not that they are because they're just best frends. It's just a little harmless fun that involves them going out to dinner together... and sleeping in the same bed... and feeding each other. It's not like there's actually something between them. No, that would be... ridiculous. Right?

    Summary

    “I’m sure.” Lena doesn’t mean to snap —it’s more of a mild annoyance if anything because if her once best friend doesn’t know that there is no way in hell she would be doing this if she didn’t want to, if she didn’t, however unwillingly, trust Kara with this, then did she ever know her at all? “As long as you’re amenable, Kara, I’m offering my complete consent. Is that okay, or would you like it in writing as well?”

    For the first time, Lena’s snipe and the crystal clear memory of their last phone call just makes Kara smile. “I’m good,” she says softly.

    “Good.”

    “You know, a week ago, the morning after we— I’d convinced myself it was a dream. I was scared to check my call log.”

    “Do you have many wet dreams about me, Kara?”

    Kara laughs suddenly, though she can’t help but feel like she’s been missing out on an essential experience. “No.”

    “Shame.”

    “You, uh, you hung up last time,” Kara ventures hesitantly. “Before I could…”

    “If you’re worried I didn’t complete the mission, I’m happy to inform you that I did.”

    “No, before I could tell you that you sounded beautiful.”

    Or, the one with phone sex and feelings and the complexity of forgiveness.
