Beth knew awkward silences all too well. She knew them from bad break-ups, from bad days, from bad feelings. She’d had her fair share of awkward silences with friends, teachers, boyfriends and most often herself. She knew all too well the awkward and painful silence of being alone with oneself and she knew that was often the most painful silence of all. There in that hallway though, Beth found a new most painful silence. Alison’s hands had not moved off her face, and her gaze was downcast, her chest heaving with shallow, shaky breaths.
“Oh god,” Beth heard Alison whisper softly, her voice cutting through the silence.
Summary: AU where the clones each have a super power based on their personalities so Beth can read minds because she’s super intuitive and Alison turns invisible because she wants to blend it with her surroundings but instead of super amazing things they do super cute things

Summar: Cop vs Pushy Reporter AU (based off of this post). Detective Beth Childs is the lead on a new string of homicides, but can she complete her investigation without the meddling of lead reporter Alison Hendrix?
[for maria tinytmas, who is working so hard on her exams and deserves some soccercop in her life]
Art throws the morning newspaper on her desk the next day, the words LEAD DETECTIVE KEEPING LEAD SECRETS? staring her in the face.
“I told you I should have handled it.”
She throws the newspaper in the trash and rubs at her temples, “Shut up, dipshit. Just - shut up.”
It’s just one overbearing reporter; Beth can handle that.
(Sometimes it’s easier to repeat a mantra over and over until it basically becomes the truth.
Beth repeats this every time they get a new high-profile case.)
HELLO YES SOCCER COP AU WHERE BETH THE DIPSHIT DIDN’T PUT ON ENOUGH CLOTHES BC SHE’S “NEVER COLD” BUT OF COURSE SHE ENDED UP FREEZING
and she’s a rookie so ofc she has to do dumb jobs, this time it’s patrolling the suburbs
she hears some crashing in a house and screams and she knocks on the door and a young woman her age opens it and OH NO SHE’S CUTE and beth is like “i’m detective childs. i heard some noise and screams coming from your house. is everything ok?”
AND IT’S WINTER AND REALLY COLD AND BETH FEELS THE WARMTH COMING FROM THE HOUSE AND A SMELL OF PUMPKIN PIE AND LOTS OF FOOD AND IT’S ALL JUST SO NICE
“oh i’m sorry to disturb you, it’s just my kids and their friends playing. they make a lot of noise, i’ll try to calm them down”
“no problem. is there anything i can help you with now that i’m here?” “there is one thing. hold on”
and then alison disappears in the house and comes back 2 minutes later with a scarf “here. i see that you’re freezing, i hope this helps. thank you for keeping us safe”
AND BETH SPENDS THE REST OF THE DAY SMILING LIKE A HUGE IDIOT AND THE SCARF SMELLS SO NICE, IT SMELLS LIKE ALISON AND BETH NEEDS TO FIND AN EXCUSE TO GO BACK THERE TOMORROW
Alison Hendrix sits on a couch at the edge of the room, hands folded neatly in her lap and legs crossed. People mill quietly around her, going on with their business as she waits, her purse clutched in her hands and bangs perched nicely on her forehead. She doesn’t quite mean to make eye contact with the woman standing at the counter. The woman smiles warmly before turning back to the bank teller, her trenchcoat bunching up when she reaches into her pocket. Alison sees a glimpse of something that gives her pause, a holster with something that looks suspiciously like a gun inside.
Alison doesn’t dwell on it, not when she sees the badge a moment later. She’s never worried about authority figures.
Alison stands, goes over to a counter to start writing a deposit check when -
“Oi! Everybody stop what you’re doing and get down on the fuckin’ floor!”
ALISON HAS FIRE POWER AND BETH ICE AND THEN ALISON GETS STRESSED AND ACCIDENTALLY STARTS FIRES AND BETH EXTINGUISHES THE FIRE AND THEN SHE CALMS ALISON DOWN
AND ALISON NEEDS A COLD DRINK AND BETH JUST BLOWS IN THE BOTTLE AND IT GETS SUPER COLD BUT ALISON CAN’T CONTROL HER POWERS SO WHENEVER SHE TOUCHES THE DAMN BOTTLE IT GOES WARM AGAIN AND SHE GETS PISSED AND BETH HAS TO HOLD THE DAMN BOTTLE FOR HER AND GIVE HER THE STRAW
BETH TEACHING ALISON TO CONTROL HER POWERS. BETH FREEZING A LAKE SO THAT THEY CAN SKATE AND ALISON IS LIKE NOPE I’LL MELT IT AND BETH IS LIKE “DO YOU WANT ME TO DIE? NO. SO CONTROL YOUR DAMN POWERS AND COME SKATE WITH ME”
