Prompt from @pilar-at-the-disco: “Maggie massages Alex after an alien attack and calls it, "just friends”“
Oh dear sweet Maggie trying to convince herself about this "friends” thing. Bless.
up, though: Cadmus hurts Alex, badly (it’s not very graphic, though),
and scares her - a lot - in the first part of this, and it’s referenced
throughout. It’s overall a very fluffy piece, but just fyi.
Alex has earned her fair share of bruises.
any given time, she can usually count at least five on her torso, and
she’s long since forgotten the uninterrupted color of her shins since
they’re so often patched with various shades of black, blue, red,
purple, green, and yellow.
But this attack had been different.
This attack had really knocked the wind out of her in more ways than Alex knew how to count.
She’d taken bullet for people, and she’d taken beatings for people.
But the thrashing that she’d taken to protect Kara today?
lackeys from Cadmus hadn’t just hit her. They’d talked to her. Talked
about the things they’d do to Kara, to J'onn, to Eliza. To James, to
Winn. To Maggie.
She didn’t even know how they knew these people.
But they did.
they told her, as they were kicking her in the ribs, all the things
they’d do to each of them in turn. All the things they’d like her to
In the end, Kara, J'onn, and Maggie had busted up the
operation, had come in guns a-blazing – in Maggie’s case, anyway – and
the only thing Alex remembered before passing out was the feeling of
panic bleeding into sweet relief; the feeling of pride at seeing Maggie
break the nose of the man who’d been working her over with a sharp swing
of her elbow.
She’d woken up under
Kara’s watchful eyes, her bed in the DEO surrounded not only by her
sister, but by J'onn, James, and a very, very red-eyed Winn. And Maggie,
pacing behind all of them, stitches above her left eye and looking like
she could throw up at any moment.
Alex immediately tried to sit up.
Of course she did.
pairs of hands went to stop her. Maggie just stopped pacing and turned
to look at Alex’s face. Turned to stare at her conscious form, to
convince herself that they’d gotten to her in time, that she was
alright; that she was alright.
Alex eased herself back down with
Kara’s help, and found that it was easier than she expected. She felt
incredibly stiff, but not the sharp pains that she usually woke up with
after beatings like that.
J'onn smiled knowingly, and went so far
as to sweep a stray strand of hair off Alex’s forehead. “We’ve been
improving our healing technologies; you should be stiff, but your bones
are already basically healed.”
“How long’ve I been out?” Her voice
sounded like she hadn’t used it in months, and tears flooded Kara’s
eyes as she smiled down at her sister.
“Only a few days, Alex, everything’s ok – ”
“A few days – ”
“Told you she’d take it like this – ”
“Kara, they were threatening you, all of you, my mom, they said they were gonna – ”
all the voices the raised to try to comfort her, Alex’s sought one in
particular. Winn had stepped aside to let Maggie take his place next to
Alex’s shoulders, and it was Maggie that Alex turned to, Maggie’s voice
that Alex singled out of all the others’.
“Danvers, you’ve got a
damn good team backing you up. Your mom’s safe, and look at us, look.
We’re all safe, Danvers. Everybody’s okay, Alex. We’re all safe. You’re
safe. You did a damn good job, holding on like that until we could get
to you – ”
Maggie’s voice broke off in bitter rage and grief that
they didn’t get there sooner, couldn’t get there sooner. Alex noticed,
but also didn’t. She reached a slow, shaky hand out to Maggie’s
“They hurt you.”
Maggie shook her head. “I’m fine. Come on. We’re gonna take you home, okay?”
Alex let her head fall back on the pillow, into Kara’s open-palmed embrace, and she nodded with her eyes closed.
She felt rather than heard her friends – her family – whispering over her, and then she felt nothing.
her eyes cracked open again, she was in her own living room, on her own
couch. Soft jazz was humming in the background and someone was moving
around in her kitchen.
“Kara?” She tried to sit up, and succeeded this time, but thought that the stiffness really might be the death of her.

Their personalities are similar to the actual paladins and lions;;
Black is a natural born leader, calm and collected and supportive!! But tends to be a bit bossy but hey it’s his responsibility to keep everyone safe!! He is Brazilian.
Blue is cheerful and likes to have fun, almost a bit too friendly(even with strangers) and a natural people person, but he finds it hard to know if people find him annoying or not;; He is Mexican!
Red is smol and angry, he finds it hard to trust people sometimes;; The only one he listens to is Black(he’s always following him around, senpai notice me). He’s the fastest and very reliable in battle! He is English.
Green is the smartest out of all of them and tends to be the one that comes up with the best plans!! Is he a boy? a girl? IDK who cares he can kick your ass. They are Japanese.
Yellow is that big brother you wish you always had!! He’s probably the nicest person you’ll ever meet, and that makes it hard for him to say no to things(he can never refuse he’s tOO NICE) He is African American!
