    Summary

    "As soon as she saw who the client was, her words died in her throat. Her drink slipped out of her hand a second later, but Catra couldn’t bring herself to care about the stain it would leave in the carpet.

    Across the table from her boss, wearing a perfectly-tailored suit that looked more expensive than most of Catra’s tuition payments, was Adora.

    As in, that Adora. The one Catra dated for all of college.

    The one that broke her heart four and a half weeks before graduation.

    The one that, according to what she’d said on the last day Catra had seen her, had fallen out of love with her."

    Or, six years ago, Adora and Catra were college students in love. Then, in one fateful meeting at a coffee shop, Adora broke Catra's heart.

    Now Catra's a junior partner at a law firm handling a patent dispute for Adora's family company. The two of them have to re-enter the other's life in an attempt for closure, catharsis, and connection.

    Summary

    “You think I'm the only one with blood on my hands? Look at yours, Catra. Are you proud of what you’ve become?" Catra's back hits the marble wall. "A mercenary? The mighty general of the Myrmidon army? This isn't the Catra I know.”
    “You don't know me as well as you think you do,” Catra spits.
    Adora surges forward, hands whipping out to press against the wall on either side of Catra’s head. Catra clenches her fists at her sides. Their breaths mingle.
    Sandalwood and sweat. Adora’s mouth is red as a pomegranate. 
    “I know everything about you,” Adora whispers.

    In the golden age of heroes, Adora is the best of the Greeks.

    After spending several years on the slopes of Mount Pelion, training with the centaur Mara, Adora is finally called to lead her mother’s army to Troy as the Commander of the Myrmidons. What makes things complicated is the fact that Catra, her childhood best friend turned bitter rival, is Adora's second-in-command.

    “I’m not sure what it is you’re looking to hear,” Adora says slowly, “but do you believe in ghosts?”

    Catra’s scowl hardens even further. “Don’t. Don’t you dare go there.”

    “All I mean is, from everything I’ve studied, this shouldn’t be possible. Either you're a princess of a faraway land that I don’t know about, which is highly unlikely, or…”

    “Or what?” Catra snaps. “Are you trying to tell me you think I’m fucking dead?”

    Summary

    Bright Moon was a small tourist town. The kind of place people visited, not the kind of place they stayed in. So for someone like Adora, looking to take a little time to grow up and prepare herself for the next step in her life, spending a year here made sense.

    It was just supposed to be a stop in the road to bigger and better things. But the people were so nice and Adora had never really had a lot of friends growing up.

    Then there was Catra. The kind of person that could throw a wrench into even the most well thought out plan.

    Summary

    Catra gets attacked by an angry civilian while they’re restoring Salineas. She’s put in charge of Bright Moon’s military to avoid any more mishaps, while the rest of the Best Friend Squad travels around Etheria to fix its kingdoms. Though initially hesitant to part with her girlfriend, Adora decides that Catra’s safety is more important. They have all the time in the world to be together anyway. Or so she thinks.

    Alternatively: Catra breaks up with Adora a few weeks into their relationship. They remain friends, and Adora nearly falls apart, except... she can’t shake this feeling that Catra still wants her. Still loves her too. So why did Catra call it quits?

    Alternatively, Alternatively: Growth is a journey. Catra and Adora still have lots to learn, about themselves and each other. (post s5)
