After months of unemployment, Catra finally gets a role in a sequel of a popular action movie. It's just her luck that in her very first scene, she is paired with Adora, the most annoying girl in the entire industry.
Things only go downhill from there.
"Meet me at the cafe tomorrow at four. We're gonna need to set some ground rules for… whatever this is. And before you get your hopes up, it's not a-"
"Not a date," Adora said with a crooked smirk. "Don't worry. I had no intentions of dating you."
Catra turned the doorknob.
"Good, because this is just fucking. And that is a rule."
Catra opened the door but stayed put, waiting.
"Your name," Adora said. "Will you tell me now?"
She saw Adora's smile before she stepped out and pulled the door closed behind herself.

Adora had been asked out a couple times just this year alone and the girls had all been smart, beautiful, and on paper even good for her.
Starla still stuck out in her mind. For all intents and purposes, she was perfect for her. They were both English majors. She got Adora’s dorky sense of humor. She was a good listener. She went out of her way to take care of Adora making sure she didn’t stress herself out to the point of passing out when she decided to take on almost a double course load sending her “take a break” reminder texts most of the semester. They even went to the same fucking horse camp growing up even though they never met while there. There was just one problem.
There was always just one problem.
Adora had been in love with Catra since one brown eye and one blue eye met her own in Kindergarten, offering her two broken crayons as she wailed long after Hope had dropped her off on the first day of school.
Adora has been in love with Catra their entire lives together. She was never going to tell her. Until she does.

All the Letters I Never Sent: The worst thing Catra ever said tore her apart from the girl she loves, sent their lives on a different path than either had wanted. The worst part is, she was right, but what makes it so bad is the toll it takes. Catra learns just how much Adora is hurting from the weight of her service she finds herself wishing she could love the soldier back together with the same patience and dedication that Adora used in their childhood to see her through her own nightmare. If only it worked that way... Ritual is a funny thing, the idea is to bring people together though shared experience, but for many it becomes a way to center themselves and mark the passage of time and changes it brings. When the two women meet back up by chance at college, it's the building of new rituals that helps them get through the process of mapping each other's wounds so that they can finally stop hurting and finally be together
Psa. Anti Military doesn't mean anti-veteran.
- Part 1 of All The Letters
Catra is doing her best as a single parent to some kind of supernatural cat no one even recognizes. She loves Melog, and they help to fill the void in her heart after someone just up and left her, but when Melog starts bringing a far too intelligent wolf home declaring they made a friend, Catra is about at the end of her rope.
“Get off. No, don’t fucking boof at me, asshole. You’re soaking and I don’t want my couch smelling like dog period, much less wet golden idiot.”

Adora and Catra become known for PDA before they even make it back to Bright Moon. They are not shameless, but you would think they were with how often they get caught. All that build-up has to lead them somewhere.
(Or, Catra and Adora get interrupted – not caught, Catra cannot stress this enough – making out enough times that Catra takes matters into her own hands to ensure they get their time alone together, and then she insists Adora ask for what she wants.)
