“The pain comes in waves, like the crash of the tide against the shore- the sea merciless and unrelenting in its assault of the sand. It threatens to consume her, to drown her, to pull her from the safety of land and batter her against the jagged edges of the rocks that protrude from the waves until she is in pieces, scattered, like so many grains of sand.
Like falling snow slipping through grasping fingers, like smoke wafting from the end of a lit cigarette, like dandelion seeds dancing on the wind.
Intangible, untouchable, like fine mist on a cool morning.
The pain comes in waves, and she is utterly helpless against it.”
Kara Danvers has detention. So does a certain kryptonite-eyed individual.
She’s just perfecting her vacant stare when the sound of the door hinges squealing in protest breaks her concentration. Her attention snaps towards the doorway, where a girl with dark hair, green eyes, and an absolutely wicked smile meets her eyes- and winks.
A bright crimson flush spreads across her cheeks as she quickly averts her gaze, having suddenly developed an intense desire to count every single one of the tally marks scratched into the battered desk in front of her. “Miss Luthor, we don’t have all day to wait for you to get inside and shut the door,” McCarthy snaps, gesturing towards the other students- most of whom suppress a long-suffering sigh as he glowers. “Take a seat.”
The SuperCorp Hogwarts AU you probably weren’t looking for that my trashy gay brain couldn’t help but writing.
Kara is only nine years old when her world ends.
There’s a flash of green light that passes through the glass of the windowshield as though it were as insubstantial as smoke that strikes her father squarely in the chest and then the wheel jerks and the world is spinning spinning spinning-
Her mother’s screams echo in her ears as the world turns upside down and right side up and upside down all over again. She’s reaching for her, fingers outstretched- Kara! -but her mother’s belt won’t loosen and neither will hers and all she knows is that she wants to get out, she wants to move-
They stop falling.
This was all typed and formatted on mobile, so just know I definitely did suffer while making this.
they’d geek out over science and worry together about kara
i’m much more invested in a lena&maggie brotp where they met on a lesbian dating app and like, there was no chemistry but they became really good friends.
they do yoga and eat healthily together and commiserate over their trash children girlfriends
maggie always makes lena pay for lunch and lena always rolls her eyes but if maggie ever offered to pay lena would punch her in the throat
maggie and lena bond over grunge music together.
maggie takes lena shopping and buys her a leather jacket. kara is grateful. very grateful.
they never talk about their parents’ rejection but it’s something shared silently between the two of them. whenever lena has a run in with her mom she texts maggie and just says ‘moms are the fucking worst’. every year on the anniversary of maggie’s parents kicking her out lena brings her a bottle of incredibly expensive scotch and they drink together. when alex is in the picture, lena sends the scotch and a note that says ‘enjoy this with your girlfriend’
maggie turns up at lena’s office, bottle in hand, and just says ‘youre my family, too, you idiot’ and they drink together in silence like usual.
maggie calls lena when alex proposes and lena knows she’s upset bc she took maggie ring shopping months ago and of course alex beat her to the punch
