Laura/Kara Fic Party!

I'm posting this a day earlier than I said, as I think a lot of stuff is happening tomorrow and I wanted to get this out there :)



Ok! letterstonorah and I declare the Immortal Goddesses Fic Party open!

Here's the plan.

What we'd like are prompts. Lots of prompts. HUNDREDS of prompts. Any kind of prompts you like - single words, song lyrics, phrases, scenarios, acts, themes, tropes, emotions, entire plots, anything. Any rating is fine.

Keep each prompt to its own comment, please.

And then we all just fill prompts. Check the prompts, pick one, two, five, twenty, fifty, that you like and create fanworks focused on Laura/Kara that fit them, then post as a comment reply to the prompt. If you create something too large to fit in a comment box, or if you'd just rather do it that way anyhow, then feel free to post to your own journal and just post a link to the fanwork as a reply.

Although we’ve called this a fic party, any kind of creative response to the prompt is ok, so while we all adore fic and hope to see lots of it, we'd love to see graphics, icons, mini fanmixes, picspams, pieces of meta or anything else you want to create too.

Fics don't have to be long! Drabble size is absolutely fine if you want to just get a feel for it to begin with. If you want to write epics, though, believe me, no one will complain...

It's fine for more than one person to create something for the same prompt.

It's also fine for you to create things for your own prompts, so if you have a story you really want to write that doesn't fit anything here, leave yourself a prompt and fill it.

If you want to leave anonymous prompts and fic for whatever reason, you can do that. I think I've arranged the settings so you can.

Although shippy is preferable, we’re ok with gen too, so long as the focus is on Kara and Laura and their relationship with each other, not just a K/L or A/R story with a bit of bonus Kara&Laura conversation, if that makes sense. Other characters are also ok, so long as there is a main focus on Laura/Kara. Either canon-based or AU stories are fine.

There's no right or wrong way to write them! So don't worry if you've never written the pairing before. Most people haven't. We're all figuring it out together, but the one thing we can probably all agree on is that they are beautiful and wonderful and lovely. So ... create your own versions of them and share them with us, and that's absolutely fine.

Please make sure you put appropriate ratings and warnings on any fic you write, in the comment header. I’m not really going to mod this, except to delete anything spammy or that I think is totally inappropriate, so if you write something that is likely to be very triggery, please put it under a cut on your own journal and just link to it here.

Please try to leave feedback on the fanworks posted.

At some point, if we get a lot of participation, I’ll make a start on some kind of masterlist, but it’ll depend on whether it looks necessary.

There is no deadline and I don't plan to close this thread. I'm going to link to it at the side of my journal and I would like to ask you guys to track the post so that you will get notifications when new prompts are left and when new fic, etc, is posted, so that you can write, read and respond, otherwise, the way LJ works, this will be out of sight, out of mind after a day or two.

Nora and I are hoping this might go on indefinitely, so you can continue to leave prompts and create fanworks for as long as you like. Weeks, months, whatever. Keep coming back and checking it out whenever you feel like writing the pairing, and point other people in this direction if you think they would enjoy it. Nora and I might periodically put little reminders that this is here on our own LJs.

In short

- Leave prompts
- Read prompts
- Create fanworks for prompts
- Post fanworks
- Rinse and repeat.

Any questions - ask them as a response to the first comment in the thread. Aside from that, please start prompting!

I hope you all have fun ♥

Forgetting the Appointment Rating M (warning for blood) Pt. 1 of 2
What the frak?

The pain comes out of nowhere, centering down to her lower belly like ground glass in a barrel roll. Her instinctive moving away from the pain pulls her attention to the slick wetness between her thighs. She had been insatiable last night, pulling Laura to her again and again until they were both drenched in each other’s juices, but something was different…she raises her hips and feels liquid squish under her ass and groans. The frakking shot. She’d forgotten her frakking contraceptive shot and was getting her Godsdamn period all over Laura’s million thread-count imported sheets.

“Kara? You okay?”

Kara pushes the sheets down between their naked bodies, making a barrier.

“I forgot my Godsdamn shot.”

Laura gives her a lazy, sensual smile that says she thinks something is funny. It’s almost annoying but it makes her so adorable Kara doesn’t usually mind.

“We got pretty wild last night but I’m pretty sure I didn’t get you pregnant.”

“I mean I think I got my frakking period all over your sheets, okay?”

Kara’s pissed and is baffled by the way Laura’s expression softens as she looks at her.

“It’s okay, Kara. It’ll wash out. How much is it?”

Kara’s a little taken aback by this. Any blood is bad news, it’s hurt and stains and stinks when it gets old. She knows this from bandages not changed often enough, old wounds and home wrappings.

“I dunno.” She props on her elbows and looks at Laura’s eyes, nodding when Laura takes the edge of the covers and raises her eyebrow in a question.

“Is it bad?” Kara doesn’t look. She finds periods uninteresting, a nagging reminder that someone forgot their shot, or that someone has decided to try for a baby. This has never been her.

“No, it’s not.”

There’s a note in Laura’s voice, like she’s seeing something special. Kara cranes her neck a little and looks down between her legs. Bright and dark red blood mingles wet on the sheets and in dried patches on her thighs. Some of her blond pubic hair is colored red as Laura’s hair. It looks like she’s taken a dagger to her crotch and as soon as she thinks that another sharp pain rips through her abdomen.

“Do you have a fetish I don’t know about?” She looks at Laura with curiosity. They’ve never discussed this before. Why would they? Neither one has periods when she’s paying attention to her appointments.

“No…but it’s been a long time since I’ve seen menstrual blood. I’d almost forgotten how bright red it was.” A blush colors Laura’s smooth creamy cheeks. “When I was young, I’d wear Aphrodite jewelry—-earrings and a necklace with dark red stones—when I had my period. A fad, I suppose.”

Kara shrugs. “I never got into that. A neighbor lady took me to Aphrodite’s Temple the first time I got mine. My mother….” She stops talking and knows that Laura will understand.

Laura starts talking about how horny she used to get on that first day and goes into “orgasms help cramps”. Kara wants to get up and wash but Laura’s breath is soft on her left breast and she starts nodding. Laura is talking about remembering feeling like her clit and everything around it felt like fat swollen cherries the first day of her period, which Kara thinks is a little over the top until she realizes she does feel like everything between her legs is…ripe, and ready for…something. Harvesting, maybe.

Laura starts moving down there, and it’s not the frenzied fingering of the night before. It’s a pressure, as Laura presses her wrist and the heel of her hand against every bit of flesh between Kara’s legs, and the rhythm echoes somewhere inside her. Laura’s wrist is a pestle to Kara’s mortar and all the jagged glass is being ground to a fine, painless powder. Kara’s legs start shaking and Laura hums encouragement deep in her throat. A cool wind starts flooding from her spine down and blows all the pain away as her thighs clench around Laura’s arm and her free hand takes Laura’s other wrist in a death-grip until the shaking stops.

“Better?” Laura could pass for Aphrodite when she looks at Kara like that. A little part of her brain is wishing that Laura had been her mother instead of Socrata and she tells that part of her brain to shut the frak up, she likes Laura as a lover much better.

“Yeah. It’s easing up. Thanks.” The boneless feeling is starting to move over her limbs and she figures frak it, the sheets are ruined anyway, she can stay in bed a couple more minutes.

“Where are your panties?”

Kara points towards the dresser; she wasn’t sure how they ended up there. Probably the same way Laura’s ended up on the corner of the bookcase.

Laura drops a kiss on her cheekbone and gets out of bed, grabbing Kara’s panties and walking gracefully out of the bedroom. Kara collapses back against the pillows and swears she’ll get up and strip the bed any minute now.
Laura returns in a few minutes. Kara keeps her eyes closed until she hears the click of snaps.

“What’s that?”

Laura hands her the yellow panties she had on last night, a flannel menstrual pad snapped around the gusset. The cover is colored in different shades of blue, like a late evening sky, with white and gold stars and a buttery yellow half-moon. The colors are a bit faded and there are a few faint stains through the lighter areas.
“It’s all I could find. It’s old…I haven’t needed period supplies for a few years, but it’s clean.” She looks a little uncertain now. “I hope that’s okay.”

“It’s fine. It’s kind of…sweet, actually.”

Kara doesn’t spend much time thinking about the difference in their ages. Laura is every cliché about getting better with age and she never doesn’t keep up. But here, between Kara’s thighs and over the sheets, is a reminder that there is a difference. She is in the middle of something that Laura had moved past.

“I brought these. You looked pretty wiped out.” Laura’s smiling now, and hands Kara a warm washcloth and clean towel. Kara cleans herself and is glad Laura doesn’t offer to do this for her. There’s no way that wouldn’t feel like sickbay or a hospital bed. She shoves the washcloth to one side—these sheets are headed for the washer and stain remover anyway—and takes the pad-covered underwear and starts sliding them over her legs, lifting up her ass as she wriggles into them.

It feels a little bunchy as Kara finally side-rolls out of bed, stands and starts stripping the sheets. By the time she gets to Laura’s side of the bed, everything has settled into place and isn’t as bad as she remembered.
Then Laura’s standing in front of her with so Godsdamn much love in her eyes for Kara, and it hits her that one of the most intimate things Laura’s ever worn is snugged tight against her own girlybits, and she lets go of the sheets and grabs her wonderful woman-friend-lover tight until their hearts are thrumming hard between their breasts in time with each other.

Laura’s bandaging wounds Kara didn’t even knew she had, and she’ll keep doing it, and Kara will keep following her steps on particular treacherous paths, Laura taking point, Kara watching her back.

I'm so delighted that you liked this and found them pre-squished!
Oh, Laura...she's so crazy :-)
The jewelry is a bit of a riff on moon goddess/earth mother tradition in the good ol' US of A, but it seemed to fit here. I figured the Colonial Pantheon would have something going on for menarche.
Speaking of riffs, I totally riffed on your present-tense tone of writing Kara...you've just established that voice so strongly that's the only way it would come out. I hope you take that as a bit of an homage as I wouldn't be writing K/LR if not for your fic.

This is kind of ridiculously awesome. I wasn't sure wherre you were gonna go with it when I read the warnings, but it's so sweet and so loving and so them.

Laura’s bandaging wounds Kara didn’t even knew she had, and she’ll keep doing it, and Kara will keep following her steps on particular treacherous paths, Laura taking point, Kara watching her back.

That line, particularly, is just wonderful.

Thanks! I wasn't sure about writing menstrual fic for them, but it felt so strong to me that even though the age difference shouldn't matter, it's a very real dividing line between Laura and Kara's life stages. In an A/U where everybody gets to live, it seems like along with everything else between them, Laura would be something of a guide through the age and changing stages process and Kara would be there for Laura as she moves further into her own uncharted territory.

I wasn't sure where it was going at first, but I love how you brought these two incredibly sensitive issues together, and addressed them. This line in particular really stood out to me:


Kara doesn’t spend much time thinking about the difference in their ages. Laura is every cliché about getting better with age and she never doesn’t keep up. But here, between Kara’s thighs and over the sheets, is a reminder that there is a difference.


Really wonderful.

Admittedly, my brain jumped straight on the kink train when I started reading- so it was interesting to see where this did go.

Interesting way to mark the differences in where their bodies are at in life.

I was going to say at first that I would have appreciated, even in an AU fic, which according to your comments, this is, that you made some reference to the original themes and or quality of their relationship on the show.

Until I read it again and realized that you do at the end. Laura was at one point, Kara's guide, and Kara was, at one point Laura's guardian.

So with that in mind I read it again for the third time.

Consider your fic thoroughly read and enjoyed.

Re: Forgetting the Appointment Rating M (warning for blood) Pt. 2of 2
Thanks for reading. Another theme I considered in the back of my mind was that Laura, for all her personal tragedy, was loved a great deal in her family of origin, and Kara was not (at least not overtly by her mother) and the effects of both experiences, IMHO, showed in their choices and actions in the show.

I'm glad you enjoyed--thanks for commenting :-)

Re: Forgetting the Appointment Rating M (warning for blood) Pt. 2of 2
IMHO both of them were bitter about their family situations. Laura, for the way hers was struck by tragic accidental death, and Kara for the abuse she endured from her mother and the way her father abandoned her.

By midway through the series what motivates them is a sense of entitlement for all of that. They are both selfish and unapologetic.

Considering Laura's family history is explicitly revealed at a time when she's decided 'Frak the universe, you can all go to hell', I'd say that her family or specifically, what happened to it, was exactly what motivated her choices and actions.

I'll check back on this to see if you've written on that family theme.

You might've cross-posted this to your own journal, because I feel like I've read it before, but if so, I still like it. It's got all these tendrils wrapping around and between the two women. I love the way Laura changes an ugly oops to a moment of personal connection and power for Kara.

I probably did, but thanks for reading it again :-) I loved playing with the difference in life stages here, along with all the love :-)
