ficlet: Mate in Two (DCU, PG13)

This is a morally uplifting story with a predictable ending, dedicated of course to boredom_doodles and katarik.


Title: Mate in Two
Rating: PG13
Fandom: DCU
Summary: Sometimes love is both the answer and the question. Those times suck.
Notes: Sequel-cum-AU to Check. Won't make sense if you haven't read that one first.


Carla took her by the shoulders. "The metahuman gene? We can synthesize it! We can make *everybody* a meta!"

"You did it?" Dani's face was serious, almost reverent.

"We did it, love. No more disease. No more..." Carla struggled for words. "No more gravity!" She couldn't decide whether to laugh or kiss her lover, so she did both at the same time.

Dani took her face softly in her hands. "We are changing the plan."

Carla shook her head. "No, we are not. This is the only way."

"Dammit, Carla, I can't!"

"You will." Carla pressed a hand against her lover's still flat stomach. "For our daughter. She'll be amazing."

"If everybody has the genepatch you gave her then she'll be normal, love."

Carla caressed her cheek. "That's not what I meant."

"I... Fuck you. I'll kill them for this. I'll kill them all."

"I'm sure you will someday." Carla smiled, eyes almost dry. "Meanwhile, take care of our daughter."

Dani bit her lower lip. "I love you."

"Me too."

She twisted her hands sharply, notified her Queen and sat down to cry next to the cooling body.
