She didn’t expect the fans of her music to become so invested into the idea of a singer who didn’t care much for soulmates, however. That wasn’t what Catra advertised herself to be, but it was what the media decided to focus on. Bombardments of questions from interviewers asking why she never sang about love, why she never bothered with showcasing her soulmark, why she usually opted to wear long pants over the mark on her thigh instead of showing it to the world. It wasn’t that she didn’t care for love; just that she didn’t care for the idea of it being chosen for her.
It also wasn’t because her mark was hideous, or inappropriate. Rather, the mark was beautiful, a broadsword cut against her thigh, claw marks cut against the hilt. It was beautiful to Catra, and sometimes, in the lone hours of night, she hoped that it was beautiful to her soulmate.
She never told anyone about those thoughts.
Catra is a singer, Adora is a basketball player. Both never cared for soulmates, until they're shoved into each other's lives.
