First Scene of Supergirl Season Three
needs to go something like this (of course it won’t but hey listen, that’s why we have fan fic and hiatuses to amuse ourselves with. Also disclaimer this was entirely for kicks and giggles and far from my best writing, so just have as much fun and amusement with it as I did and we’ll all be okay).
[camera pans over National City; sunrise with soft jazzy music and the sounds of two women softly – not pornographically
[this is an episode, not my fics, damnit] – moaning and whispering each other’s names]
[camera sweeps into Alex Danvers’s surprisingly well-lit bedroom, finding clothes all over the floor and Alex laying on top of Maggie, blanket over them both but showing enough to know that they’re not exactly dressed and ready for the day. They’re both smiling as they make out passionately, but soft and slow and somewhat sleepily]
Alex: I love you, Maggie Sawyer.
Maggie: [sighing deeply into their kiss, one hand in Alex’s somehow redder, somehow curlier, hair, one hand under the covers on Alex’s waist] I love you too, Alex Danvers –
[a sharp, eager rap on the door. Both women laugh and groan at the same time, Alex putting her forehead down to touch Maggie’.]
Maggie: And I love your sister, Danvers, but can’t she just meet you at Noonan’s instead of uh –
Kara [from outside the door]: I can hear and see the both of you, you know.
Alex [laughing as she kisses Maggie again and tosses on a long t-shirt, since Maggie’s stolen most of her regular-sized ones, and a pair of jeans and boots]: Why do you even bother knocking then, Kara?
Kara [enters the apartment with her hand over her squeezed-shut eyes
and in my mind there’s a studio audience cheering her arrival okay getting out of genre now whoopsadasie]: It’s faster to fly her there, Maggie, you know what traffic’s been like since the invasion.
Maggie [a t-shirt freshly on, pulling her hair back into a ponytail and touching the small of Alex’s back as she strides to hug Kara good morning]: That I do. In that case, no chance you want to drop me off at the precinct, is there?
Kara and Alex [together, both beaming]: It’s a sister thing!
Maggie [beaming back at her Danvers girls as she tugs on jeans and boots, grabbing her gun and a banana from the counter]: I know it is, I’m just teasing. But babe, I am late, I gotta go. See you both tonight at James’s, right?
Kara: Game Night is back!
Maggie [softly]: I love you, Ally.
[They kiss with enthusiasm, and Kara diligently looks anywhere other than her sister and Maggie, but she’s smiling. As Alex says she loves Maggie too and touches her face one more time before Maggie leaves, we may get a glimpse of something shiny on her left hand, but we’re left tantalizingly unsure]
Kara [as Maggie leaves through the door and Kara and Alex head for the window]: All these months and you still look struck with a love ray every time.
Alex [clearly pleased]: Pfft. Love ray.
[Kara scoops her up with one arm and they fly to Noonan’s, re-establishing Season One patterns of interaction and pacing and a little thing called emphasis on the Danvers Sisters]
