If you’re not following my ride or die, my boo thang, the other half of my BROTP, you should go do so! @lena-lipbite-luthor is literally one of the nicest people I’ve met on this silly site. She’s super thoughtful and posts great things! We both love Katie McGrath and spread love through our posts!
I’m going to finally share the headcanon that @lena-lipbite-luthor and I came up with after Exodus aired. Enjoy.
It started as Kara stopping by with lunch for the CEO. Soon it turned into going out for lunch breaks; after the third time of Kara suggesting to get Chinese,
Lena was like ‘We should try new places when we go out together.’ And now
they go back and forth in picking different places and foods. Which also means
Lena knows how big Kara’s appetite is.
Lena loves Kara’s large
appetite and always wonders where Kara puts all of it. She gets that Kara loves
her pot stickers, but it is time to try something new. Eventually she suggests
that they try out different places and every time she chooses, it’s her treat
and she picks a place that she knows Kara would love and has no problem
spoiling her and encouraging her to eat as much as she wants.
Kara’s turn to find places, she tries to reach outside of her comfort zone in
choosing. She’s picked up on what kind of food Lena is interested in and tends
to drift towards that since Lena does the same for her. Kara doesn’t feel
embarrassed about how much she eats because of how kind Lena has been to her
about it. Normally, she would be able to finish her food in a matter of
minutes. But she wants to be able to savor each new flavor and the time spent
with the CEO.
And then eventually
they branch out even more when Lena admits to Kara that she actually loves to
cook but hardly does because she would never cook just for herself. Kara gets
really excited when Lena mentions some of her favorite dishes to make and says
that Lena can feel free to cook for her anytime. So, they start getting
together for dinner and movie nights and Lena finally gets to make use of the
gourmet kitchen she has in her penthouse and she blushes every time Kara tells
her how amazing the food is!
It wouldn’t make sense
for Lena to cook a meal for just herself. But when she’s cooking with Kara, she
has prepare a whole meal because she knows it’ll be gone before the night ends.
During one of the nights, Kara tells her how she’s never really cooked in her
kitchen per say. (Heat vision) So, the next time they get together Lena has her
kitchen set up to teach Kara how to prepare a meal, starting with how to make
pot stickers. Kara is in awe that Lena would do this for her, no one has ever
really taken the time to actually teach her. But here she was, standing in the
kitchen of someone who cared about her. They spend the rest of the evening
laughing and flirting! While preparing the food their hands constantly brushed
burning her cheeks red. That’s when it finally clicked for Kara.
