    Summary

    “Help me understand,” Kara says. “Are you saying everyone falls in love with their best friend?”

    “I’m saying that queer women have a special affinity for it,” Lena repeats, fishing the cherry out of the bottom of her drink. “The whole ‘falling for your straight best friend’ is basically a rite of passage.”

    “Says who?”

    “Everyone.” She puts the cherry in her mouth, bites it off the stem. “The L Word was like, built on the premise that a friend group of queer woman in LA dated each other in some sort of terrible repeating circle for, god, however many seasons that went on. And it’s been my experience that when two people are attracted to each other, and they’re close, feelings are likely to develop.”

    “That’s just, I mean, come on.” Kara’s cheeks are a little pink. “A trope and a tv show? That’s your evidence?”

    “So you’ve never been in love with your best friend?” Lena looks down at her empty glass.

    “No!” Kara sounds affronted. “No, I have never been in love with my best friend.”

    Or, A love story, told in three acts.

    Summary

    Lena Luthor is going to die.

    She’s going to die very soon and she’s going to do it right here on the road to god-knows-where, Colorado, her hands still clutching the wheel of this foul-smelling rental car, buried under five feet of snow for the remainder of the season until some fortunate family of possums digs her up in spring, probably. (Do they have possums in the mountains?)

    But before she dies, she’s going to kill Sam Arias.

     -

    In which Lena Luthor hates the winter holidays, until her best friend lures her to her cabin in the mountains where she's promptly held hostage by a very well-timed snowstorm and the irresistible charms of unexpected guest Kara Danvers. (But Lena will literally kill a man before admitting to that last part.)

    Summary

    Lena runs out of things to look at in the room. Her eyes flit back to the green chair in the corner.

    “We’re just friends,” Kara says. Just.

    “So neither of you holds any romantic feelings for the other.”

    “No,” Kara confirms.

    Lena looks back at the blue vase. She thinks if she looks at it long enough she might start feeling like the water inside- calm, content, accepting that its vessel is shoddy and imperfect.

    She feels both their eyes on her. Molly’s is gentle, asking. Kara’s is insistent.

    “Lena?” Kara asks, and Lena quickly looks away.

    “It’s okay,” Molly says. “It looks like we have a lot to talk about.”

    Summary

    “Everyone on this show has an agenda, Kara.”

    She regarded the blonde with a quirked eyebrow and asked, “What’s yours?”

    “I- I- I um-” Kara brought her right hand up to the bridge of her nose, froze when she found nothing there, then awkwardly dropped her hand to her side. “To… find… love?”

    “Right. Love. You’re here to find it, I’m here to help you.” Lena paused. “Kind of.”

    “Well, that sounds ominous.”

    ***
