Title: Streaky
Fandom: Supergirl
Characters: Kara "Supergirl" Zor-El
Prompt: 012. Orange
Word Count: 342
Rating: G
Summary: Kara buys a cat.

"So what's going on between you and Captain Boomerang?" Courtney Whitmore asked as she and Kara Zor-El left the food court at the mall.

"Honestly? I have no clue," Kara replied, ditching her paper cup into a nearby trash can. "He has a thing for me, I have a thing for him, but then there's this whole deal with Power Boy and -"

"Power Boy is hot."

"I know!" Kara giggled,  turning a little red. "But I really like Boomer. He's a great guy, if he could just get beyond the fact that he thinks I'm jail bait. In any - oh my god that's so cute!"

"What? What?" Courtney tore her eyes away from a pair of pants she'd been looking at to follow Kara's point of view. She noticed that the two girls were in front of the mall's pet shop. Kara held a mewling kitten in her hands, her eyes bright as she petted the kitten between its head. It was a little orange thing with a few streaks of a paler, almost yellowish orange. It barely bigger than the palm of Kara's hand.

"Power Girl has a cat similar to that," Courtney remarked. "This fierce little orange thing. It doesn't like anyone."

"Well, this little munchkin definitely likes me, don't you boy?"

"You aren't seriously going to buy that, are you Kara?"

"Why not?"

Courtney dropped her voice. "Superhero."

Kara shrugged. "Like you said, Karen has one."

"I think she's going by Kara now."

"Whatever." Kara waved her hand, dismissing Courtney's last sentence. "C'mon, we'll go inside and pay for the little one and get some stuff. He's too cute not to get."

Courtney shook her head. "This is so totally an impulse buy," she said,  following Kara into the store. "What are you naming him?"

Kara stared at the cat for a moment intently, trying to think of a name that really suited the cat. "I don't know. I'll think of a better name later, but for now, let's call him -"

"Citrus Joe? Tangerine Tomcat?"

"Streaky."

Title: Outside the Outsiders
Fandom: Supergirl
Characters: Kara "Supergirl" Zor-El
Prompt: 026. Teammates
Word Count: 207
Rating: PG
Summary: Kara decides she doesn't like the Outsiders as teammates.
Author's Notes: Takes place after Supergirl #11

"I don't like your teammates all that much." It was a blunt statement, no doubts about it anywhere. "I really just don't."

Owen Mercer looked up from his udon, a confused expression on his face. "Where is this coming from, Kara?"

Kara Zor-El merely shook her head and stared out of the window of Owen's apartment before turning back to him. "That last mission I went on with you guys. Grace actually thought I killed someone and..." Kara shrugged. "Aren't teammates not supposed to think that way? I mean, don't get me wrong, but the whole point of being in a team is so that you can trust each other and work together, right?"

"For...the most part," Owen agreed carefully. "Look, they're just a little weary about you."

"Yeah, well, you're recently not-evil, how are they not weary about you?"

"Hey!"

"I'm just saying," Kara replied, crossing her arms. Her udon sat untouched on the coffee table. "Frankly, if you're teammates are going to be that freaked out about me every time I stop on by, I don't think I want to see that much more of them."

"Even Nightwing?" Owen asked hopefully.

Kara merely replied by giving Owen an obscene gesture coupled with a flirty smile.

Title: Disco Kryptonite
Fandom: Supergirl
Characters: Kara "Supergirl" Zor-El
Prompt: 049. Club.
Word Count: 343
Rating: PG
Summary: Kara goes to a super-hero themed nightclub.
Author's Notes: Takes place before Supergirl #12.



"Are you serious about this place?" Kara Zor-El raised an eyebrow as she peered up at the club that Cassandra Sandsmark had brought her to. Emblazoned across the top, in shining, sparkling neon lights, was the name "Disco Kryptonite." Kara raised a dubious eyebrow at Cassie, who was ready to party in an outfit freakishly resembling one that Poison Ivy would wear.

"Trust me. I've been here a lot in the past year. It's a great, clean place. Most everyone here's a fanboy or a fangirl of some sort." Cassie grinned at Kara and pointed down to her outfit. "I'm obviously not, but I don't want to run around partying in my Wonder Wear, so I figured a change was good."

"And Poison Ivy was that change?"

"Hey, at least I changed," Cassie said, nodding towards Kara's outfit. Kara was wearing a pair of knee-high red patent leather boots, a pair of red hot pants with a glittery gold belt that had an s-shield on it, and a somewhat flowy blue top with a small s-shield on the upper right corner of her chest.

"This is not my costume."

"Close enough," Cassie replied, breezing past Kara towards the entrance. She pulled out an ID card that said she was affiliated with the Teen Titans and nodded towards Kara. "She's with me."

Cassie confidently strode into the club, with Kara following behind her, feeling a little overwhelmed. Lot of that happening to me lately, Kara thought to herself as she flicked her long blonde hair over one shoulder. She looked around, watching people dancing and drinking and laughing. The place was a veritable po-po platter of meta fanpersons. She even saw two drag queens dressed as Black Canary and Big Barda.

It was...awesome. And weird.

Looking in a corner, she realized that this was probably the only time she'd ever see Batman making out with the Joker.

Kara wasn't sure how Cassie had found this club, but she was definitely intrigued by it. She actually might just have found her favorite new hang out.

Title: Don't Wanna Hear It.
Fandom: Supergirl
Characters: Kara "Supergirl" Zor-El
Prompt: 037. Sound.
Word Count: 185
Rating: G
Summary: Kara refuses to work on her hearing powers.
Author's Notes: Takes place between Superman/Batman #13 and Supergirl #1.

 

"We need to work on developing the usage of your senses more, so that you know how to use them when properly when you're out being Supergirl," Kal-El explained calmly to his cousin.

Kara Zor-El, who was fiddling with a birdarang she'd stolen from Robin, looked up at Kal, exasperated. "You know we've been training all day, right? With, like, everything? Can't I just go back to Paradise Island and, you know, hang out with the Amazons?" She was speaking in Kryptonese, mainly to tick Kal off if nothing else. She enjoyed pushing his buttons to no end.

Ignoring her, as Kal was learning to do from Batman, Kal sat down next to her, and in a whisper that would have been inaudible to anyone except for Kara, Superboy, and perhaps Power Girl, Kal said, "We'll work on sound first."

"Great." Kara said, still speaking Kryptonese. Her voice dropped to on octave as low as Kal's as she raised a challenging eyebrow and said, "Let's go practice up in space so I don't have to hear you. How do you like the sound of that?"

Title: Air
Fandom: Supergirl
Characters: Kara "Supergirl" Zor-El
Prompt: 036. Smell.
Word Count: 247
Rating: G
Summary: As Kara's rocketship hits Earth's atmo, the scent of burning asteroid awakens her.
Author's Notes: Takes place directly before Superman/Batman #8


The rocketship hurtled to Earth, finally reaching its destination after a detour of thirty odd years.

Pieces of the asteroid that the rocketship had been embedded in began to fall away one by one, hurtling towards Earth and landing in cities like Smallville, Park City, Leesburg, and Blue Valley, though a majority of them went directly towards Gotham City.

As the ship entered Earth's atmosphere, the young woman held in suspended animation inside the rocketship jerked her head. The thick, steamy, rancid smell of burning asteroid mixing with the coldness of Earth air filled her delicate nostrils, awaking her instantly. She sat up, not remembering much of anything except that she had lain in one position for a very long time.

The girl held her nose, the acrid stench of the flaming asteroid having hit atmo getting to her, but she found it difficult to breath. She tried pushing the door of her ship open, but it refused to do so, being closed in by thick, hard black rock. She pushed and she shoved and coughed, her sensitive nose starting to pick up all manners of smells as her ship hurtled towards Gotham City Harbor. She smelled meat and fog and salt water and the horrible smell of pollution which was foreign to her. Her panic only increased, but she could do nothing.

The last thing she smelled before hitting the water of the Gotham Harbor was the scent of the sea life teeming right beneath her.

Title: High School
Fandom: Supergirl
Characters: Kara "Supergirl" Zor-El
Prompt: 088. School
Word Count: 390
Rating: G
Summary: Kara arrives for her first day of high school.
Author's Notes: Takes place directly before Supergirl #10.


Claire Conners. That was the Earth-style name that Kara Zor-El had finally decided upon. It was an homage to both Kal-El and Kon-El respectively, each name taking off the men's first names, coming together to form a name that could never really be connected to either of theirs. Plus, and here was the icing in the cake, it had that cool alliteration factor that almost everyone else's names seemed to have.

Kara Zor-El adjusted her red, cats-eye style geek chic glasses as she walked up the steps to the high school she had enrolled herself in, feeling wildly excited and nervous. It wasn't that she was going to be hanging out with her peer group that had her excited (Kara had hung out with the Teen Titans enough, so its not like she was starved for a peer group) but it was because she would finally get to experience first hand how all of her friends lived their lives out of the costume. In a very real way, she'd get to be one of them, and that meant the world to Kara. After all, high school. It was the biggest part of quintessential American childhood.

Pushing open the doors to the school and walking in, Kara smiled at some girls who seemed to give her a bit of a catty look right back. Her smile didn't falter, though. Kara herself might have faltered, but Claire Conners wasn't built that way. She pushed on ahead, running a quick hand through the hair of her short brown bob-styled wig as she headed for the school's main office to get her schedule. She took in the sights and sounds of the school though and quickly noticed that maybe things here weren't that different from Krypton when it came to teenagers. They seemed to travel in cliques, and she noted a bunch of girls giving another girl a verbal dressing down. She caught snatches of conversation - conversation about sex, drugs, and even Cocoa Puffs - and she shuddered,

Did she really want to put herself through all of this? Especially when she could just be a superhero for the rest of her life and not really worry about anything else?

To her surprise, the answer was yes. It was a pity that the answer would change by the end of the school day.

Title: Not Enough
Fandom: Supergirl
Characters: Kara "Supergirl" Zor-El
Prompt: 034. Not Enough.
Word Count: 225
Rating: G
Summary: Kara and Owen talk about the end of their dating relationship.
Author's Notes: Takes place before Supergirl #11.

“It’s not enough, is it?” Kara Zor-El asked.

Owen Mercer looked shakily at Kara, still uncomfortable with the way she was holding him as they flew over the Pacific. “You know, I’m scared that if I answer this the wrong way, you’ll just drop me.”

“Boomer…”

Owen sighed and nodded. He couldn’t look up to see Kara’s face, but he figured it was best at this point. “I’m sorry kid. You’re a hottie, and I’ll probably have a really dirty thought about you once in awhile, but you’re right. It’s not enough. And I hate that it’s not.”

“I understand that,” Kara said softly, moving so as not to come too close to an airplane that was headed in their general direction. “I really do. So I guess I’m stuck being your kid sister type instead.”

“It’s not a bad role to have.”

“No, I guess not. But it’s all for the better I suppose. I mean…I don’t know.” Owen felt Kara shrug, and he felt sorry.

“Look, Kara…”

“No, Owen, trust me, it’s probably better this way.” Kara looked down at the top of Owen’s head and smiled. “Besides if it turns out that there’s not enough reason for you to stay a good guy, then at least I won’t have to hesitate in taking you down.”

Owen furrowed his brow at this. “Ouch.”

Title: Triangle
Fandom: Supergirl
Characters: Kara "Supergirl" Zor-El
Prompt: 042. Triangle
Word Count: 195
Rating: G
Summary: Kara and Cassie discuss Kara's latest love interest.
Author's Notes: Takes place any time between Supergirl 8 and 11.

“You like Nightwing?”

“He’s cute!”

“Well…yes. I’ll give you that. He is cute. Most of the female superhero population thinks that. But that is not a triangle that you want to step into, Kara!”

Kara Zor-El looked up from her window, the dreamy expression on her face fading as she met Cassie Sandsmark’s gaze. “Triangle?”

“Oh, you don’t know, do you?” Cassie sighed and plopped herself down on the chair next to Kara, bringing her legs up under her. “Nightwing used to have this hot and heavy relationship with Starfire, and then there’s rumblings that he had something going with this woman in Gotham, and…trust me. You don’t want to step into this. Besides, doesn’t Batman already dislike you? Liking Nightwing? Not gonna help your case any.”

Kara rolled her eyes. “Starfire might have been a Tamaranean princess, and the girl in Gotham is just that – a girl in Gotham. But I’m Supergirl.”

“And people wonder why I didn’t like you initially,” Cassie said with a raised eyebrow. “Look, I get where you’re coming from, we’ve all been there, but seriously Kara. Don’t. Find someone else.”

Kara grinned wickedly at Cassie. “Like Captain Boomerang?”
