    Summary

    “You look out for me, and I look out for you.”

    Catra really, truly thought that no matter how the world grew or shook or crumbled, there would always be a Catra so long as there was an Adora, and an Adora so long as there was a Catra.

    “You promise?”

    Catra wanted it to be true. She wanted to believe Adora’s promise so badly, she turned herself into a liar.

    Because that was the nature of promises, after all. Either promises only make liars—or only liars make promises. It was a chicken-egg problem to be sure, but the fact remained that Adora lied to Catra. And by believing Adora’s promise, Catra lied to herself.

    (A convergent, non-linear character study of Catra—past, present, and future. Featuring Catra's POV on canon, pre-canon, deleted scenes, and post-canon)

    Summary

    Adora and Catra were best friends in high school.

    Catra burned that bridge. Adora grieved. That was the end of it.

    Until they end up in the same English lit class in college, that is.

    Summary

    They’re allowed to do this now. Shadow Weaver can’t come in and punish Catra for getting too close, can’t tell Adora that Catra will only distract her and drag her down, and there’s no great big war to fight anymore. There’s nothing stopping them from loving each other.

    So why is Catra acting so fearful?

    (or, the immediate aftermath of Heart Part 2, where Catra and Adora make an attempt at communication.)

    Summary

    Adora was still amazed that something as monumental as a living being could be created unintentionally. That a whole person could be added to the universe. By accident.

    Wack.

    Catra was showing now, it was wonderful. Adora wasn’t going to admit it, Catra was still touchy about the word and Adora didn’t want to risk being banished to sleep in Melog’s bed, but her wife’s baby bump was singularly the cutest thing in the world.

    She still couldn’t quite wrap her mind around the fact there was a baby in there. Content to be safe and snug, surrounded in warm water and growing every day as though it wasn’t some other-worldly, miraculous thing. (Neither of them had grown up around pregnancies, Adora might have been being a doof about it.)

    Summary

    Catra becomes a bit of a bookworm. Adora learns to indulge. Catra gets hit on and Adora gets jealous. Adora gets sick and Catra takes care of her. Catra makes bread. Then they go for a ride.

    Or,

    There was a time that neither of them really thought they’d have a future, but they get one anyway.
