    Summary

    Catra clenches her fists. She won’t let it happen. She won’t endanger their future. “We can’t change anything. We’ll just have to wait, and do everything the same way we did before.”

    Adora grabs Catra’s shoulders. Her grip is so tight, it’s nearly painful. “But do you realize what that means for us? Playing along. Letting things go the exact same way as before–”

    Catra’s expression darkens. “I know,” she says, struggling to keep her voice from trembling. “You’ll have to leave. We’ll have to be enemies again.”

    ***
    Years after defeating Horde Prime, Catra and Adora inexplicably wake up in the past—on the day that Adora first found the sword. If they're going to make it back to the present, they'll have to relive their past from start to finish, pretending to be enemies despite being in love. Despite being married. Despite knowing exactly how the story ends.

    But it's not easy, waging war against the person you love most.

    (now read the sequel, immemorial)!

    “Are you bored yet?” Adora whispers, leaning a little further into Catra’s space. She swears she hears the other woman’s heart rate pick up speed, even over the thumping bass of… some kind of synth-pop sea shanty.

    “I was getting there,” she replies slowly, skimming the soft skin at the base of Adora’s neck with her thumb absentmindedly; Adora swallows and Catra traces the movement with her eyes before looking back up. “Why?”

    “You said you’d leave if it got boring,” Adora murmurs, leaning into the touch ever so slightly. “If you want to leave… I’ll go with you. If you want.” Catra’s answering smile is slow and dangerous.

    “Oh I’m so bored, princess. I think you might need to rescue me.”

    Summary

    They stay that way for a long time, Catra’s face tucked into Adora’s shoulder, Adora gently cradling Catra’s head. Adora is careful not to hug Catra too hard or make her feel restrained, anticipating the moment that Catra will start to pull away — but Catra doesn’t. She hangs on so tightly it hurts, her claws digging through Adora’s jacket and into her back, latching into her like she did when she was a kitten and didn’t know how much her claws could hurt. Adora tries not to wince, tries not to move a single muscle, worried that if she does the spell will break and Catra will struggle away, appalled at having shown weakness.

    But Catra doesn’t let go. And so neither does Adora.
