    Summary

    The tip of your nose is still frozen when you push open your bedroom door with a mighty sigh, more than ready to get into some warm pyjamas and forget about the awful weather. Instead, a tiny figure in a giant men’s t-shirt leaps off her bottom bunk and grins the biggest grin at you.

    “Anya! Guess what? Guess what, Anya?”

    (You forget about the cold entirely.)

    **Christmas prequel to More Women than Warriors with 5-year-old Lexa and 10-year-old Anya**

    Summary

    They meet at the table read.

    Beca didn’t know what Chloe Beale would be like in real life -- her years in the music industry have taught her to never take someone’s public persona at face value. No one is who they project themselves to be on social media and red carpets, least of all actors.

    But Chloe Beale, Beca quickly learns, is the exception to the rule.

    Summary

    Clarke and Lexa have been best friends for a few years now, and they've never gone beyond that, despite strangers constantly assuming they're dating and their friends saying they should be. Have they thought about it a time or two? Sure. Do they catch themselves staring at parts of each other they shouldn't? Well, yeah. Do they sometimes imagine doing things that friends definitely shouldn't do? Of course. But they know it would never happen. They both think the other would never want them in that way. And besides, sex just complicates things anyway. They're best friends. That's all they'll ever be.

    It gets harder to believe that when they do start fucking.

    Summary

    'Before you,' he said, 'you can see more women than warriors. Cowardly, unarmed, they will give up the moment they see the weapons and bravery of their conquerors who have given them such a drubbing so many times before.' (Tacitus, Annals XIV.36)

    The first time Clarke sees the Head Girl she’s sitting on a throne, presiding over her dominion with a piercing stare and a crown of braids in her hair. Her warriors are spread at her feet, a multitude of them, all long-haired and wild and clad in identical brown regalia. There’s something of the sacred about her, like the crimson cloak draped across her shoulders and her divinity are one and the same.

    Or at least it feels that way.

    Summary

    “Nah, you way over-tipped last night. This one’s on the house.”

    Lena’s shoulders slump in mock exasperation. “Kara, don’t start with me.”

    “I am absolutely starting with you.”

    What a smug little shit, Lena thinks. But God is she cute. “You really don’t want to play this game.”

    "Yeah? Maybe I do.”

    It’s said so softly, so gently, and if this was one of Siobhan’s movies, they wouldn’t be talking about the money or drinks at all, they’d be talking about something clenching around Lena’s chest, something stifling, a loneliness that paralyzes her bones.

    “Don’t blame me when you lose,” Lena says with a gentle upturn of her mouth, her voice low and crackling, leaving a fifty-dollar bill on the bartop before she turns away.
