FIC: show up
supergirl, post-season 2 finale, alex/maggie, the danvers sisters, 1k, first in a series of “maggie doesn’t say yes” fics
Maggie doesn’t say yes.
Maggie says, “Babe, I love you so much, but we are not getting engaged right now. You are figuring out where Kara went and we are watching movies and spending my entire paycheck on food to cheer her up.”
Alex blinks a few times. Swallows. She has to clear her throat to say, “Yeah. Yeah, right, good idea.”
Maggie catches her by the arm before she can turn away. She holds Alex’s face in both hands and presses their foreheads together.
“I love you, Alex Danvers,” she whispers. “But we’re not getting engaged because your sister had to send away some boy who you never thought was good enough for her anyway.”
A tear slips down Alex’s cheek but she chuckles.
“When we’re ready,” Maggie says, “just us, no one else. When we’re ready, and the world isn’t ending or about to end or just saved from ending. When it’s just us and we live together and we’re ready, I’ll say yes, okay?”
Alex pulls back to look at her. “You want to live with me?”
“We’ll talk about it tomorrow,” Maggie says, because she does, God, she does, but they can’t make this decision right after the world almost ended. “Let’s find your sister first.”
