alright don’t get me wrong, melissa killed it in the musical episode and the superfriends were really cute but also what if alex got stuck in music meister’s alternate universe instead of kara?
because let’s be real, alex is probably the one who introduced the wizard of oz to kara so her knowledge of movie musicals is pretty widespread
anyways she gets to this universe and meets barry for the first time and is totally 100% ready to deck him in his dopey smiling face
(“barry allen? as in the barry allen who brought my little sister to an alternate universe to fight deadly aliens because your little vigilante task force wasn’t strong enough?? even though her family is literally trained in fighting and taking down aliens? that barry allen?” “i now see that was a mistake.”)
and alex begrudgingly forgiving and agreeing to work together with barry because she has to get home to her family somehow
and barry understanding why kara literally talks about alex all the time, like alex hung the moon or something, because even without powers alex is probably the strongest and most driven person he’s ever met, accepting the mission and diving in headfirst, doing whatever she needs to do to get home.
(alex mostly just wonders how this universe has a pretty accurate replica of kara’s dorky, loving personality in the body of the fastest man alive. she definitely doesn’t take comfort in the similarities between the two. nope, not at all)
((okay, a little bit. but only because there’s something in barry’s smile that just reminds her of kara, of home))
also, barry and alex fighting over which movie was better, singing in the rain, or the wizard of oz. they finally come to a consensus, saying that the sound of music probably tops both.
also, barry completely surprised at how pretty alex’s singing voice is, because lbr chyler’s voice could probably summon angels
and at the end, when both alex and barry get shot, which honestly, i don’t think would’ve happened because alex is probably has more awareness of bullets and the danger of shootouts than both barry and kara combined, let’s be real
and then cisco vibing iris and kara to the alternate universe
kara would most definitely be there because alex, despite the healing she has gone through over the course of the show, still has a very broken, very damaged heart, what with all of that happened with her father, and she’s probably still having nightmares about the white martian mind meld and the myriad mind control, where she turned on the people she loves
plus all of the inner turmoil in her head with her coming out and also trying to balance work, family, and a completely new relationship
alex is damaged goods, but kara’s undying love for alex would definitely remedy that
(and let’s be real, the love goes both ways, what with kara feeling lonely and like she’s losing her sister, her anchor to reality, so alex totally could’ve saved kara in canon, showing that she’ll always be there for kara and is never letting her go.)
anyways, iris and kara are vibed into the alternate universe and barry and iris have their epic true love’s kiss
kara kneeling next to alex, tears streaming down her face, because alex totally couldn’t be dying, alex was the one to save the rest of the superfam. alex was, is, their rock, and alex couldn’t die on her, not like this.
and alex smiling through bloody teeth and “what i wouldn’t give for one of the deo’s bulletproof dresses right about now,” and kara laughs and grips alex’s hand and presses a kiss to alex’s forehead
and then they’re back in star labs and alex is alive, alive, alive
and kara pulls alex into a rib-bruising hug and j'onn joins in and then they all go home
home, to their earth
home, to national city
home, to kara’s apartment, where winn and james and maggie are waiting with pizza and potstickers and cookie dough ice cream
and alex and kara snuggle up on the couch together, surrounded by their friends, their family, and feel so, so loved
