Kara didn’t know what she was expecting when she started
dating Lena Luthor, but it certainly wasn’t the huge nerd that Lena secretly
was. Sure, her apartment was filled with textbooks and reference books on
astrophysics and microbiology, but Lena Luthor had a floor-to-ceiling wall of
shelves in her bedroom dedicated to comic books, video game characters and
collectibles. Which is why Kara found herself spending more and more time in
Lena’s bedroom, for a completely innocent set of reasons.
had been a valuable resource to Kara time and time again, and seeing a series
of comic books on Lena’s shelves made Kara excited to pore over them,
especially since Batgirl was really just a text message away. Kara had talked
to Kate Kane once or twice when the formidable woman had dropped in to check in
on the National City branch of the DEO, and reverently reading through the
Batwoman comic books made Kara feel less isolated, especially with Batwoman’s
connection with the LGBT community. In her time off, Kara often found herself
absorbed in the array of superheroes stories that were painstakingly organized
by Lena, and she was quick to put them back in their place before her
girlfriend got home. Kara wasn’t sure why, but she felt like she was intruding
whenever she took a comic book off of its shelf, and she was always very
careful with them, putting them back exactly where she had found them.
Eventually though, Lena came home early one evening to find Kara, in a tank top
and a pair of sweats, poring over a Wonder Woman comic.
“Hey, Kara.” Lena’s voice floated through the apartment
into the bedroom, and Kara froze, still sitting on the floor with the book open
in her lap. The blonde could hear Lena approaching her bedroom, and panic
coursed through her. Crap, crap, crap, crap.
“Whatcha doing?” Lena padded into the bedroom, pressing a soft kiss to the
blonde’s cheek. Kara stiffened slightly, still frozen on the floor as Lena sat
down next to her.
“Sorry. Sorry. I should’ve asked. I know. I’m so sorry.”
Words tumbled out of Kara’s mouth as she finally spoke, closing the book and
gently placing it on the floor beside her. Lena frowned as she looked over at
“What are you apologizing for?” The brunette leaned over
to pick up the comic, grinning as she saw the cover. “This is one of my
favourites. This entire series is so well done.” Kara snuck a glance over at
her girlfriend, who looked completely carefree.
“Wait, you’re not mad that I’m reading your comics?” Kara
flushed, rubbing the back of her neck sheepishly.
“Kara, why would I be mad? I just thought you might not
have any interest in them, seeing as you’re basically a walking comic book
anyway.” Lena chuckled, pressing her lips gently to Kara’s. Kara melted into
the kiss, humming softly as she pulled away.
“I thought you were like…going to be super protective of
your nerd stuff.” Kara muttered, blushing. “Alex was really mad when I read her
comic books when we were kids.” Lena laughed quietly, pulling the blonde into
her lap and kissing her again, pulling her close.
“I think that I would just be super embarrassed if anyone
found out about my ‘nerd stuff’.” The CEO grinned and turned slightly pink.
“But you’re not going to tell anyone, are you, Supergirl?” Lena raised an
eyebrow at the blonde and the blonde smiled back, before threading her fingers
through dark brown hair and kissing Lena deeply.
“No, but it’s nice to know I have blackmail should I ever
need it.” The blonde murmured against Lena’s ear, nipping gently. “Besides,”
Kara snickered, “you have an awful lot of Supergirl comics up on that shelf
