    Summary

    Lady Kara Danvers Zor-El couldn't have predicted that her hot-headed twin brother would have put her in the position to where she must not only assume his identity but his marriage as well. But he had, all while leaving for so-called urgent business. All Kara knew was that the marriage was to strengthen their lands. And without much experience with women, and having a feeling that the bride she would soon meet would be nothing more than an overwhelming burden, she only hoped it was worth it.

    Lady Lena Luthor was not attracted to men. Nor was she fond of them. So it bordered on unforgivable that her father, Lionel, Earl of Northumbria, had guilt-tripped her into marrying none other than the rumored sexual knave himself — Kieran, Earl of Wessex — to unite their distressed earldom. But as she mentally prepared to find some common ground with "Kieran," fate ensured that she would find commonalities with Kara instead.

    Summary

    AKA the sugar baby Kara AU
    --

    When later asked, Kara will vehemently insist that she is not, nor has she ever been, a sugar baby.

    She just happens to be in the position to accept extravagant gifts and money from a wealthy CEO in exchange for certain acts of physical and emotional intimacy. But! That does not make her a sugar baby, okay? It makes her a friend. A great one, actually, and the only one Lena Luthor has likely ever had.

    Summary

    A lab accident with an alien substance leaves Lena with a deadly affliction. Contact with her skin causes her to drain others of their lifeforce (often fatally) but is also now necessary for her to survive. Lena decides not to "feed" off others, instead focusing on finding a cure- all the while trying to navigate the fallout from accidentally revealing her romantic feelings towards her best friend. Things complicate further too, because when the clock finally winds down, the city's resident Super takes Lena's survival into her own hands.

    Summary

    Isn’t it weird, Lena thinks bitterly, how the odds keep on stacking against her?

    She never asked to be a Luthor. She isn’t even a real one in the first place. And yet, here she is, dragged by the arms through cold, silent corridors, surrounded by a dozen guards in their polished armor. She is bound, bruised and dirty, escorted to be judged for crimes her brother committed. Lena chuckles derisively. Not Luthor enough in her family’s eyes but enough to be punished in their stead by everyone else.
