Warnings: SPOILERS FOR 2x14! DO NOT READ if you haven’t seen the episode and don’t want to be spoiled!!
Prompt: I wanted to flesh out and extend the ending scene with Alex and Maggie from 2x14. It was such a heartfelt, emotional scene that I thought it needed “completeing”, if you will. I started with describing the scene we did get in more detail, then adding my own interpretation of what happened next.
This is my first actual Supergirl fic, so I hope I’ve done it justice.
Here is a youtube video of the scene in question for those of you who have expressed interest, but have not seen the episode. (Its more than just that scene, but I have linked where the scene starts at 2:06)

Author’s Note: I’ve only tagged a couple of people for this one, because 99% of my followers have joined up because of my Star Trek fic. If you would like to be included in my tag list for other fandoms besides Star Trek (like Supergirl and Torchwood, for example), please let me know! I just didn’t want to tag anyone who might not be interested in Supergirl. Thank you!
Numb. That’s finally how Alex was starting to feel as she tipped the glass to her lips once more, draining it in one. It’s exactly how she wanted to feel. It was a calculated move, drinking this much hard liquor. There always came a point of numbness, and though it wasn’t much, it was a lot better than the horrible feelings she was trying to escape. She reached for the bottle and poured some more into her glass, her grip somewhat clumsy. She managed to avoid spilling as she set down the half-empty bottle and brought the drink to her lips again, sipping half of it back just as someone knocked on the door.
