#kara means so much to her #so so so much to her at this point #and you can see the moment cat realizes that very thing #it’s a hug #it’s just a hug #and cat doesn’t think about it at first #because cat grant is affectionate #she’s physically affectionate with those she cares about and so this isn’t a big deal #until it is #until she realizes she’s hugging kara #she’s hugging her sunny assistant and her superhero and her inspiration #she’s hugging /kara/ #there are so few people in the world that touch her so easily #that offer hugs and physical comfort and connection like this #and i think in this moment she realizes just how deeply she cares for kara #how /nice/ it is that kara cares about her right back #and so that first gif is surprise #but the second gif is desperation #you can see how her fingers curl into kara #how her nails dig into the material of the cape and she pulls kara closer #and i didn’t catch this at first #but kara starts it #kara’s arm moves first #she pulls cat closer #because kara is grateful and scared and she expresses herself though touch so much #and cat gets it and responds in kind #she lets this superstrong alien (who just weeks ago had thrown her from this very height) #lets kara pull her close #and so she holds on as tight as she can too #and in that third gif i think there’s a little bit of fear #not of kara #but of how deeply she cares /about/ kara #of the power kara holds over her #of the first connection she’s let herself make outside of her sons #’because of you i started letting people in’ #and in the fourth and fifth gifs you can see her accept it #decide to continue to let this girl - who’s done nothing but push her and surprise her and change her - in #cat grant isn’t going to let fear stop her #and so the bravest thing she can do #is continue to let kara get closer and closer

She sent me an email. Telling me what she thinks of me in terms that are, well, highly unsuitable to repeat in a professional setting.
