    Summary

    A dame comes wandering into Kara Danvers's office, asking for help against her husband. Thing is, the dame is Lena Luthor, her former friend and occasional collaborator, and almost certainly the love of her life. And the thing is, too: Lena's husband tried to kill Kara for their friendship. All told, Kara should send her away. She doesn't.

    Kara Danvers is like any other person in love. A damnable idiot.

    or

    the noir au.

    Summary

    “Help me understand,” Kara says. “Are you saying everyone falls in love with their best friend?”

    “I’m saying that queer women have a special affinity for it,” Lena repeats, fishing the cherry out of the bottom of her drink. “The whole ‘falling for your straight best friend’ is basically a rite of passage.”

    “Says who?”

    “Everyone.” She puts the cherry in her mouth, bites it off the stem. “The L Word was like, built on the premise that a friend group of queer woman in LA dated each other in some sort of terrible repeating circle for, god, however many seasons that went on. And it’s been my experience that when two people are attracted to each other, and they’re close, feelings are likely to develop.”

    “That’s just, I mean, come on.” Kara’s cheeks are a little pink. “A trope and a tv show? That’s your evidence?”

    “So you’ve never been in love with your best friend?” Lena looks down at her empty glass.

    “No!” Kara sounds affronted. “No, I have never been in love with my best friend.”

    Summary

    “Okay. What’s your name?”

    Lena’s response is knee-jerk. “None of your damn business.”

    Supergirl runs her fingers through her hair again, and this time it comes out a little worse for wear – it sticks up wildly near her temple, and Lena can see a slight cowlick. It’s strangely humanizing.

    “Look, my boss isn’t going to like that I’m working with an unknown as it is. If we’re going to work together, I at least need something to call you.”

    When Lena shakes Supergirl’s hand, she feels the warmth of victory when the hero seems shocked at the firmness of her grip. But alarmingly an even stronger warmth radiates from their joined palms, spreading up her arm, and Lena pulls her hand back faster than what’s generally considered polite, curling it into a fist.

    “You can call me Kieran.”

    OR

    For over a hundred years, Lena has been trying to escape the suffocating hierarchy of the fae – and ever since her mother moved LuthorCorp to National City the only way to do so is to work with Supergirl, with whom Lena shares a soul-deep connection she can’t control.

    Summary

    “Everyone on this show has an agenda, Kara.”

    She regarded the blonde with a quirked eyebrow and asked, “What’s yours?”

    “I- I- I um-” Kara brought her right hand up to the bridge of her nose, froze when she found nothing there, then awkwardly dropped her hand to her side. “To… find… love?”

    “Right. Love. You’re here to find it, I’m here to help you.” Lena paused. “Kind of.”

    “Well, that sounds ominous.”

    Summary

    The longer Lena stands in her bedroom, her still-wet hair slowly dripping onto the hardwood, the more she wonders whether screaming will make her feel any better. She’s been waiting for this phone call for the last twenty-four hours and now she's staring at the missed call banner. Somehow she already knows that calling back isn’t going to work out in her favor, so instead she closes her eyes and clicks on the voicemail.

    “Hi Lena, this is Kara Danvers! I got your messages, all seven of them. I’m so sorry that we didn’t have a chance to sit down this week in person, although it sounds like you’ve had your hands full at work. I have some stuff I need to take care of before we leave, so I’ll have to meet you at the airport. Since I’m cutting it a little close, I’ll send a courier to pick up my ticket from you this afternoon. And Lena? Take a deep breath. This is all going to be fine. Your ex-fiancée will wish she’d never left you and your family will think we’re in love. Trust me. Look, I’ve got to go, but I’ll see you at the airport. Can’t wait to meet you.”
