Supercorp Practical Magic AU in which baby witch Lena Luthor is afraid to fall in love because she’s seen what it does to people, so she casts a true love spell for a person with impossible qualities so that she never will.
Qualities like “Marvelously kind” and “Will hear my call a mile away”.
Cute, ridiculous things like “They can jump higher than a kangaroo,” “They can hold their breath for 6 minutes,” and “Their favorite letter will be an S”.
(Lena also wishes for them to have a family. A good family. A mother who loves them. “No,” she adds greedily, “two good mothers”.)
But what really gets Lena, in the end- what makes her realize that Supergirl, Kara, is the one that she summoned all those years ago- occurs on the warm summer night that Kara finally convinces Lena to go out on a flight with her.
They fly all across National City- past L-Corp, by the buildings, up above the clouds. She shows Lena some of her favorite places to go, like the hills overlooking the city (Close enough to bask in it’s busy light and yet far enough to be at peace).
Finally, Kara takes her to speed justabove the ocean water.
And as Kara reaches down to skim her hand over the waves, the night sky reflected in the water so clearly that it looks like she’s making ripples across the cosmos itself, Lena remembers her final wish. The final feat that would prevent her heart from falling, because it was impossible.

Despite all of the issues surrounding Serena’s current state of mind, Bernie knew everything would be eventually be okay when Serena suddenly and quite surreptitiously continued their game of “SAG, You’re it!” (Secret Ass Grab)
