    Summary

    Kara’s happy. She has a great job, a girlfriend who loves her, and castmates who only occasionally post her drunken antics on Instagram. But everyone knows that happy doesn’t get clicks, and when the unstoppable force of an audience’s expectations runs up against the immovable object of a network’s vision, everybody loses except the paparazzi.

    or

    the one where the network meddles, Lena despairs, and Kara just wants the fandom to find an ounce of goddamn chill.

    Summary

    Lena Luthor needs a husband, Clark Danvers needs an easy resolution to his cash flow problem.

    Unfortunately, the best laid plans often go awry.

    --

    Or, Lena Luthor is actually rich, but Clark Danvers isn't actually Clark Danvers. It's complicated.

    Summary

    Kara’s struggling to find work. Lena’s struggling to find herself. When fate (with some help from Cat Grant) casts them into the same orbit they find themselves completely off-script, because while everyone knows about the sins of the father, they're somewhat less clear about the sins of one’s siblings. Throw into that an audience hungry for stories at the expense of fact, a showrunner with a plan nobody saw coming, and a co-star who steadfastly refuses to keep it in his pants, and you’ve got a tale so dramatic even the protagonists have noticed.

    or

    the one where they’re both actresses with a surprising amount of baggage for two people who haven’t met yet.

    //

    “Now,” Lena says, physically pushing her keyboard away on her desk, as though trying to distance herself from the temptation to keep working. “What can I do for you?”

    Anyone who has met Lena is familiar with these words. They are her go-to greeting; practiced, polite, and most importantly, meant in earnest. A thesis statement: Lena Luthor wants to help.

    Summary

    The one where Lena and Kara are married like they should be.

    This takes place in the same universe, just with several alterations, so not really AU, but sort of.
