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.

Taking place immediately after the events of Young Blood Old Souls, Luz has burned her only way back to the world she knew. Ever the positive light in the dark though, she seems certain there's another way. This is her home too, and she's shown everyone that she's more capable then they ever thought, "just a human" could be. Besides, in an ever changing magic world, how could there not be some way back?
Amity knows a different truth though. She remembers a night when the positive, cheerful force that is Luz Noceda became despondent, scared and sad. Her mother being the center of it, Amity fears the truth that her friend seems unable to face.
What if Luz can't ever go home?
When Luz returns to school after her confrontation with the Emperor, she begins to notice certain things about Amity. Things she was too preoccupied to notice before.
Written for Lumity Month 2020.
At the last minute, Amity decides she can't let Luz fight her battles for her and faces Grom herself.
