    Summary

    “Look, can I ask you something? It’s your birthday so I don’t know if you’ve set any boundaries on hook-ups but…”

    “Hooking up?” And then Adora just can’t stop, “Oh, no, I’m not hooking up. I mean. I have, but not now. Not, uh, a thing I do really. Um...yeah.”

    Catra is kind enough to try to hold back her smile.

    “Well, you just made this super awkward,” she breathes out. “I was gonna ask if your friend was single. You're hot and all. But every word out of your mouth has been a total bummer, not gonna lie.”

    Adora has died and gone to lesbian hell. She always knew it would come to this.
    __

    Adora Gray's life is on track, just the way she likes it – ever steady, no surprises. And then Catra Morgan crashes her birthday party and turns everything upside down by dating her best friend Glimmer and making Adora fall for her.

    That's fine! Adora is not panicked at all, thank you very much. She has some detailed, multi-step plans to ignore her growing feelings and navigate this all. But Catra, and her past, have a pesky tendency of showing up and throwing everything for a loop.

    Summary

    It isn’t that being caught exercising in the halls is actually embarrassing; Camilla knows that there’s more to health than medicine, and keeping fit requires lifting more than just books. What’s embarrassing, what’s down-to-the-marrow humiliating, is that she actually has the time to exercise. She should be helping her necromancer achieve lyctorhood, not finding exciting new places to do squats.

    It’s some small consolation, perhaps, that there’s at least one other cavalier whose necromancer has seen fit to turn her loose on Canaan House without a duty to fulfill. That the other cavalier is Gideon is, well, less consoling.

    ---

    In an alternate universe where things are progressing as the Emperor Undying intended, Camilla and Gideon find themselves with a lot more time on their hands and a lot less supervision from their necromancers. This could be the start of a beautiful bromance.

    Summary

    It figures that the only college with the badass Cavalier program is also the college that Harrow Nonagesimus wants to attend. Oh well. Campus is big, right? She'll probably never see that pointed little face again.

    Summary

    “People keep falling for her anyways, you know,” Gideon says. “I’ve seen it happen. Girls always end up tripping over themselves at her feet and she doesn’t even see it happening.”

    “Harry’s charming, in her own way,” Ianthe says, canting her head like they’re sharing an inside joke. Gideon hates that she gets it.

    Or, Gideon and Ianthe commiserate.
