    Summary

    Unthinking Adora leans forward to tuck a loose tendril of hair behind Catra’s ear. Catra stills. Her ears and tail go rigid with anxiety, and it’s only then that Adora realizes how much Catra’s hair has grown in the last few months. At this length, pushed back behind her ears, it reminds Adora of…

    She remembers the shock of seeing Catra’s hair, shorn and slicked back, on Horde Prime’s ship. She had never seen Catra’s hair that short in her life — and if she had, it would have been when they were too young for her to remember.

    Without it, she had seemed so small.

    “I’m sorry,” Adora says, snatching her hand back. “I didn’t mean to, I—”

    “It’s fine,” says Catra. She runs a hand through her hair, effectively dislodging the piece that Adora has just brushed down. She catches Adora’s hand in hers and says, “If it’s you, it’s fine.”

    A study of character and relationship growth through hair, or: Five times Adora helped Catra with her hair, and one time Catra helped Adora with hers.

    Summary

    Even illuminated only by the candles winking in their sconces, the castle is beautiful. It’s swathed in colors just as brilliant as the kingdom’s name indicates, steeped in a history that Catra has no part in.

    Will she ever return to the Fright Zone? If she does, it will be different now. Catra is sure of that — She-Ra’s magic healed every broken thing in all of Etheria, carpeting the sullied land with new life. Whatever the Fright Zone had been, whatever had happened there, it is in the past.

    An unexpected pain throbs in Catra’s chest. Whatever the Fright Zone had been, it had been home for a long time. For her and Adora. The pain she had weathered there had been cradled hand in hand with the happiness of their friendship. The loss is unexpectedly painful.

    Her hand falls from the wall.

    “I’m going to take you home,” Adora had said, and Catra still doesn’t know where exactly that is.

    Summary

    “Let’s make a bet.” 

    Catra straightened, ears perking up. She liked bets. She liked winning them.

    “If we win the game tonight, you’ll go to the dance with me tomorrow.” 

    Laughter ripped from Catra’s throat. She tossed her head back, fangs bared in open-mouthed giggles. “Wow, you really don’t want to go with me. The Rebels kick our asses every year.” 

    “That’s not true!” Indignation sparked and died in Adora’s blue eyes. “Well, we almost had them last year.” 

    “Almost isn’t winning, Adora. Besides, if we don't win,” asked Catra, shuffling to fit her arms into the sleeves of Adora’s letterman as discreetly as possible, “what’s in it for me?” 

    Adora blinked. “What do you want?” 

    You.

    Not that she was stupid enough to say that. 


    ______________

    In just a year, high school senior Catra has overcome everything the universe managed to throw at her — a manipulative parent, a broken system, a ruined friendship. If only she could get over something as stupid as a crush.
