    Summary

    Catra is there when the new She-Ra is annointed, when she hears that battle cry again, when the stranger in front of her turns into the ghost of a memory.

    The new She-Ra doesn’t look like Adora, and maybe that’s disappointing, but maybe it’s easier. When she turns, she is taller, mightier—but an imitation of someone Catra knew, loved, lost all the same. Gold traded for silver hair that glistens like opal against the light of the Sword of Protection’s runestone.

    She-Ra eyes Catra, blue and just as bright as she remembers, as if she’s sought her out amongst the crowd of strangers.

    As much as she wants to, Catra cannot look away.

    -

    She-Ra, a study in reincarnation: birth, death, and rebirth.

    Or: it’s a hard job loving a hero, but someone’s got to do it.

    Summary

    Now, though, Adora was on top of her, and her chest heaved in a way that was decidedly not sleepy. She pleaded with Catra with her eyes, then her words, “Please, I just-” before cutting off, not knowing what to even ask for.

    Summary

    Catra pulled away, and Glimmer saw she wasn’t the only one crying. They stared at each other, two girls up very, very high, and Glimmer found her chest humming with something unnamed and fiercely protective.
    She raised her hand and cupped it against Catra’s cheek.
    “If you fall—” she said slowly, carefully. She wiped away a tear with her thumb. “-I’m going to catch you.”

    Both Glimmer and Catra have been through a lot, and they've done things they regret. That doesn't mean they'll ever give up on each other. They're not allowed to give up on themselves, either.

    Summary

    The Old Internet was a place where wizards still roamed. Where you could set sail in a rickety old ship and find yourself in wondrous lands. Where true names - not given names, not legal names, but handles, names of one’s own choosing - held a magic all their own. Where if you knew the right incantation, you could summon powerful beings to aid you.

    It was a place where you could be anything.

    Even a girl.
