    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.

    Summary

    Jennifer "Jenny" Honey had no idea what she was getting herself into when she found the perfect tutor for Matilda. All she knew was the tutor would be able to keep up with Matilda and smelled like burnt cedar in the rain.

    Jacqueline "Jack" Foxglove had no idea what she was getting into either when she signed up to tutor a brilliant kid with telekinetic abilities. It might have something to do with the woman with kind eyes and a scent of summer honeydew and winter clove.

    Title of the work comes from the cover of the same name by Florence + the Machine.

    Summary

    It’s a happiness like Kara has never felt, knowing she’s successfully pulled off their ruse and bumbled her way into her first tournament. She’s full of restless energy, so buoyant that she’s sure she could fly, and she spurs her horse onwards through the crowd, reveling in the joyous squalor of the city. It reminds her of home. Of London, the tiny hovel in the cheapest part of the city where Eliza worked her fingers to the bone as a healer to support her and Alex.

    It’s in this mood, dressed as a man and brimming with hope as she meanders through the streets grinning at anyone who will give her a second look, that she sees an angel.

    OR

    Kara Danvers is a knight’s squire, a girl of humble origins just trying to find her place in the world. When the lord she serves unexpectedly gives her the opportunity to change her stars, she takes it without hesitation, finding love and purpose along the way.

    OR OR

    The medieval AU based on A Knight’s Tale, the sexiest historical movie in existence.
