  1. Summary

    Adora dances through the strands of time programmed into the system. The first week, she jumps forward just a year or two — 2042, 2043, just before the breakup, back when they were still happy. In 2051, she sports the short, choppy haircut that was popular at the time. In 2066, it’s long, and dyed at the tips. She’s twenty two, over and over and over again, each weekend spent experiencing that age right on the cusp of adulthood as she weaves in and out of time periods, searching for Catra.

    In the summer of 2044, she wanders past a sports bar and sees her own face, sweaty and breathless in an interview. Adora remembers this video — it was taken just before she received her first Olympic gold.

    Adora keeps walking. There’s no way Catra would choose to be here.

     

    ________
    Adora has never had much interest in the Etheria program, a virtual reality simulation in which those on the verge of death and dementia can relive their glory days, dancing side by side with the consciousnesses of the deceased — but when she runs into a familiar face while visiting a dearly departed friend, she finds herself tumbling back into a romance she thought she had lost decades ago.

    Summary

    Adora: Can I come over?

    It’s an innocuous enough text to send to your best friend, or to the girl you’ve been sleeping with for the past four months. So, why does Adora feel her pulse quicken through her fingertips as she sends it? Fortunately, a response comes before she has time to consider that.

    Catra: Again, Adora? I’m working.

    Adora: Please.

    Catra takes a few minutes to reply, and Adora starts to think maybe she is too busy today to give Adora what she needs, or that maybe she’s decided that domming Adora is too much work, and-

    Finally, she sees the (...) that indicates Catra is typing. She waits. A beat, and then:

    Catra: Please, what?

    Adora: Please, mistress.

    This time, Catra’s response is instant.

    Catra: Door’s open.

    ......

    Adora has a bad day at work and needs Catra to remind her just who she belongs to.

    Summary

    When he looked across the room though, he saw Catra leaning back, tail lashing wildly behind her, staring at Adora like she was the first star to grace the Etherian sky. Adora was leaning forward, eyebrows slightly pinched, and looking at Catra like she alone could tell her why that was.

    Kyle had a feeling that even if he got up now and knocked into every single bedpan on the way out the door, they wouldn’t have noticed him. They probably hadn’t realized he’d been in the room in the first place.

    OR

    if you’re in the same room with catra and adora you are automatically the third wheel

    Summary

    When Adora is taken in by Lady Brightmoon, she leaves her boarding school—and her best friend—behind. She manages to avoid regretting it right up until the day she sees Catra again...

    It's the She-Ra regency romance AU you never knew you wanted! There will be balls. There will be card games! There will be duels and burglaries and maybe kidnapping! Come join me as I find out how all those things fit together!

    (Since a couple of people have asked: this fic is focused on catradora, but I try to present adora's relationships with both catra and glimmer as extremely important & extremely different. ymmv as to whether you interpret the latter as romantic. whether or not you do, they are both endgame. no ship angst here. :D)

    Crux is abusing you to anyone who will listen," said a voice from the entryway, with fifteen minutes to go. "He said you made your blade naked to him. He said you offered him sick pornographies."

    Summary

    "Why is Harrow on Tinder? How is Harrow on Tinder? I thought humans were the only demographic allowed, not eldritch horrors. What do I do? Like, do I swipe right?"

    "Do you like her?" Camilla asks.

    "Uh, no," Gideon says like it's the most obvious thing in the world.

    "Then don't swipe right."

    A moment of silence. And then, "I'm gonna swipe right."

    OR the “you’re my enemy and you popped up while I was swiping around on a dating app so I swiped right just to screw with you and we matched wtF is going on” AU I posted about on Tumblr one time, but it's more angsty and found-family-ish than I had intended. As usual.
