    Summary

    One day, two women meet on the subway. The recently dumped Lena is recovering from a broken heart, and Kara is grappling with the open-ish relationship she has with her long-distance boyfriend. They decide that they’re going to become friends. The kind of friends who also have totally casual, no-strings-attached, nobody’s-catching-feelings sex. What could go wrong?

    As Alex puts it: “Kara. This is the dumbest thing you’ve ever done. And I’m including the time that you set fire to your own hair and nearly burned the house down trying to do some spell you found on MySpace to make Troy Bolton materialize in real life and marry you.”

    Or: Lena and Kara go around New York City eating food and banging each other until their feelings eat away at them, and Alex tries not to have an aneurysm about it.

    Summary

    After only a few hours at her new IT job at Catco, Lena is on the verge of quitting, when she stumbles upon delicate information. Despite not knowing the people behind the messages, Lena goes out of her way to keep her fellow employee's identity a secret.

    OR

    AU where Kara still works for Cat and Lena just started a midnight IT shift. Kara and Winn's carelessness leaves Kara's Supergirl identity exposed and Lena helps keep it a secret. Slow build (they don't even meet for the first part) and lots of fun Superfriends messages.

    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.”

    Or, A love story, told in three acts.

    Summary

    “Can you fetch me some gummy-worms when you come back, Love?”, Kara yelled after Lena who got up to make herself some tea. She almost dropped the kettle when her brain registered the term of endearment.

    Love? Since when was she Kara’s Love? Oh god, was she Kara’s Love? Nope, not getting the hopes up...

     

    “Earlier, when I was making tea, you called me Love? I was just wondering where it was coming from since you never called me that before.”

    “You always call me darling, so I wanted to have something to call you too.”

    “But you do know that you only call someone ‘Love’ when you actually love them, right?”, Lena asked, anxious for the answer. Stupid hope.

     

    or

    the one where Kara accidentally calls Lena 'Love' which sparks a deep conversation about platonic and romantic love, past relationships and desires - with two happy endings of course.

    i never thought such a short read could have the most perfect and real communication between two friends/people/lovers let alone what happens after OOF.

    Summary

    “I hope you know this could probably count as breaking and entering,” Lena murmurs.

    Kara makes a light noise, shrugging her shoulders. “Doesn’t count if you keep the balcony open always for me,” she says.

    “For you? How presumptuous.”

    or Lena just really, really wants to touch those biceps.

    OR Kara keeps sleeping in Lena’s bed, much to Lena’s horror.
