    Summary

    Lena forgets all about the stars and how pretty they are at the sight of Kara laughing, because even in the bad torch lighting, Kara is prettier than all the stars combined. Something twists in Lena’s stomach. She wants to lean forward and press her lips against Kara’s, and she almost does, but then she realizes what she’s doing and she stops herself just in time before Kara notices anything.

    or: kara and lena meet as teenagers au

    Summary

    "Kara said she could come over whenever she was free, had literally texted Lena saying she would welcome the company so she knows she isn’t going to intrude but Lena’s three hours early and she doesn’t know if that welcome extends this far ahead."

    AKA Lena shows up early to a friend get-together at Kara's and things get festive (and flirty) real quick.

    Summary

    “Do you think therapy would help you?”

    “Yes…”, Kara affirmed, a crease simultaneously appearing on her forehead to pre-empt the ‘but’ she was on the precipice of voicing. “But I don’t think that there is anyone suitably equipped to handle a case like mine.”

    “What makes you so sure of that?”

    “Two reasons.” Kara declared, the shadows of her face darkening all of a sudden.

    “And they are?” Percy inquired, pen poised and ready to detail Kara’s expressions and answer.

    “Well, first…” Kara sighed before lifting her chin and staring at Percy defiantly, something strong and unbreakable flashing in the young woman’s eyes for the first time. “I’m in love with Lena Luthor.”

    Summary

    “Help me understand,” Kara says. “Are you saying everyone falls in love with their best friend?”

    “I’m saying that queer women have a special affinity for it,” Lena repeats, fishing the cherry out of the bottom of her drink. “The whole ‘falling for your straight best friend’ is basically a rite of passage.”

    “Says who?”

    “Everyone.” She puts the cherry in her mouth, bites it off the stem. “The L Word was like, built on the premise that a friend group of queer woman in LA dated each other in some sort of terrible repeating circle for, god, however many seasons that went on. And it’s been my experience that when two people are attracted to each other, and they’re close, feelings are likely to develop.”

    “That’s just, I mean, come on.” Kara’s cheeks are a little pink. “A trope and a tv show? That’s your evidence?”

    “So you’ve never been in love with your best friend?” Lena looks down at her empty glass.

    “No!” Kara sounds affronted. “No, I have never been in love with my best friend.”

    Or, A love story, told in three acts.
