16 Great and Long Kalex Fics

In this (romantic) Kalex (Supergirl) femslash fanfiction recommendation, I have collected 16 long and excellent Kara/Alex stories – and additionally short stories, anthologies and more.

With one exception I did not include AU (Alternate Universe) and soulmate stories (basically any AU where Alex and Kara are not adoptive sisters) – but I did include a few links at the end.

Warning: Kalex (Alex/Kara) means that Kara and Alex have a romantic relationship. They are not biological siblings. Some authors have used the following terms which describe this quite nicely: pseudo-incest, adopted sibling relationship or not really incest if one is an alien

And as always: don’t read what you do not like and ship and let ship.

A) My favorite long Kalex fics

The first six Kalex stories are my favorites

1) The one in which Alex agrees to marry Kara to save her from deportation

  • Nowhere to Put This Great Happiness by Alsike ; @nike-ravus
  • Setting: Supergirl TV 2015 (DCU), Fake Marriage
  • Relationship: Alex Danvers/Kara Danvers (Kalex) (f/f)
  • 1 Chapter, 16k words (completed)
  • Published: 2017
  • Rating: Mature
  • Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply

When ICE come to CatCo and reveal that someone has tipped them off that Kara Danvers is an illegal alien extraterrestrial, there’s a scramble to try to figure out how to get Kara a greencard.
Alex would do anything for Kara, has done everything for Kara. But entering into a sham marriage with her to sponsor her immigration petition might be a little too much. Or maybe the problem is that it isn’t enough at all.

Alex would die to save Kara, of course she will fake marry her to save her from deportation. But she is struggling with her real, suppressed feelings for Kara.

For the amount of plot covered by the author, with 15 k words this is a surprisingly short fic. To achieve this, there are no side plots, no Supergirl storyline and no Superfriends apart from Lucy and Eliza who pay small supporting roles. This is purely a Kalex love story, told exclusively from Alex’s POV.

Angsty, sweet and romantic – this is a brilliant, very well written story and my favorite Kalex fic.

Favorite Quote:

She didn’t really think a real relationship would be better. She’d just have to go back to panicking about Kara in her off time and driving whoever she was with crazy. But Kara would meet someone she actually liked someday. She wouldn’t want to live with her sister forever. It hurt to think of Kara finding someone she wanted to be with. It wasn’t jealousy. But things would be different. Alex kind of liked the way things were right now.

 

2) The one in which Alex and Kara spend a day at the aquarium with Cat and Carter Grant

1) It’s Just Another Day, Until It’s Not (2016)

1 Chapter, 3k words (completed)

Alex wasn’t one for Valentine’s Day, but when Kara wanted to do sisters’ date, she couldn’t really deny her anything.

2) It’s Supposed to be a Date (2016)

6 Chapters, 33k words (completed)

They were supposed to go out, the two of them, a date. Until Kara made an offer to young Mr. Grant to bring him along. Alex wasn’t thrill.
This is a sort of sequel to It’s Just Another Day, Until It’s Not.

The first story It’s Just Another Day, Until It’s Not is short and sweet and I would recommend to read it first, but it is the second story It’s Supposed to be a Date that is the reason why this series is on this list.

Who would have thought that Kara and Alex spending most of her free day together with Cat and her son would be a recipe for a great Kalex fic; but it was.
This is a great and sweet story with a lot of humorous moments. There is no action and no angst, just a nice day at the aquarium.

It is fabulous how the author treats food in this story. Food, which plays such an important part in Kara’s life. And the way Alex’s love and never-ending care of Kara is told by little pieces about food and Cat’s observations of Alex and Kara. And a nice take on Cat.

Favorite Quote:

“Carter, honey, slow down.” She nudged him lightly when she saw his cheeks puffed out with food. “While I’d wholly support you in anything you want to do, I don’t think eating contest is going to be one of them.” She eyed the amount of food, and how much it did not phase Alexandra. “Especially against Keira.”
“Kara,” Alex corrected, then turned to the younger Grant. “And your mom is right, you shouldn’t try to out eat Kara, it’s impossible.”
Her little Kryptonian grinned at everyone at the table, but said nothing else. She didn’t even try to be discreet as she took some fries from Alex’s plate. Right then Cat’s half formed question from earlier was answered, when she saw the brunette pushed a pile of fries that she had separated toward the younger woman without being asked.

 

3) The one in which something prevents Kara from falling in love with Alex.

  • Pink Kryptonite by silverwriter01 ; @silverwriter01
  • Setting: Supergirl TV 2015 (DCU),
  • Relationship: Alex Danvers/Kara Danvers (Kalex) (f/f)
  • 21 Chapters, 32k words (completed)
  • Published: 2016
  • Rating: Mature
  • Warning: Graphic Depictions Of Violence

Kara Danver’s life changed when she fell victim to the Black Mercy. Reflections of her ‘perfect fantasy world’ leave her with shaken and with questions. What is pink kryptonite and why did her mother place it in the back of her pendant? How does she tell Alex that she actually was part of her fantasy world?

When you see Alex and Kara together and think: there is just this one tiny bit missing and they would be a wonderful couple.
Silverwriter01 take on this: Nope, there is nothing missing, there is something that needs to be removed.

The story re-imagines a few key scenes from Supergirl season one and Kara also revisits a few key memories from the time she grew up with Alex.
This story comes close to the optimum result if you wanted to write a Kalex story, as close to canon as possible, focusing on Alex and Kara and do as little retelling of the show and as little action sequences as possible.

I re-read this story recently because I didn’t take notes the first time. It is very well written, and it held up fantastically. Just as the 1st time I read it, I couldn’t put it down.

This is a very sweet and romantic story, but there is just enough suspense and a little bit of angst to create tension. This is one of my favorite Kalex fics.

Favorite Quote:

Alex reached over to brush some lose strands of hair behind Kara’s ear.

“But none of that compared to when we landed safely because of you. I was so relieved when you climbed on onto of the wing, soaking wet but still so beautifully alive. I remember smiling. You looked so happy. And that was the moment I fell in love with you.”

 

4) The one in which Kara believes Alex to be her lover when she comes back from a mission with her memory messed up.

  • Things I Yearn to Remember by silverwriter01 ; @silverwriter01
  • Setting: Supergirl TV 2015 (DCU),
  • Relationship: Alex Danvers/Kara Danvers (Kalex) (f/f), memory loss
  • 29 Chapters, 44k words (completed)
  • Published: 2016
  • Rating: Teen and up
  • Warning: Creator Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
  • Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply

When Alex’s date night with Maggie doesn’t go as planned, she heads to Kara’s apartment to process what happened. Only she finds the apartment empty except for a message. When Supergirl returns they discover half of her memories are missing and she has a strange idea about her connection to Alex.

Alex is struggling with the dilemma of “lying” to Kara – because in Kara’s messed up memories they are a couple. Alex does not want to hurt Kara while she is recovering and thus she plays along, but eventually she is forced to challenge her feelings for Kara. Is Alex setting herself up for a really broken heart – once Kara remembers what they really are to each other?

I loved this fic. It is a rather unusual take on (partial) memory loss and very well written.

 

5) The one in which Kara is a victim of the rumor mill at CatCo

  • The Flying Ecdysiast by immopengu, justanexercise
  • Setting: Supergirl TV 2015 (DCU),
  • Relationship: Alex Danvers/Kara Danvers (Kalex) (f/f)
  • 5 Chapters, 26k words (completed)
  • Published: 2017
  • Rating: Mature
  • Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply

By the end of the day, three rumors grace CatCo.

Kara is a part time stripper.
Kara is Supergirl.
Kara’s girlfriend is her pimp.

AKA
Kara’s new clothing choices snowball into Stripper vs Supergirl rumors.

More on the comedy side of a rom-com. Hilarious and well written. Highly recommended.

 

6) Six Times People Mistake Alex and Kara For a Married Couple

People are confused about Alex and Kara’s relationship.
Hijinks ensue.

This story is basically one of my favorite fanfic tropes, told six times – from seven different points of view (Cat, Winn, James, Astra, Lena, etc).  And a short epilogue from Alex and Kara’s point of view. Well written and intriguing.

I especially enjoy the chapters told from Cat’s and Lena’s point of view – in particular as Lena is rarely featured in Kalex fics.

Favorite Quote:

“Kara waves at him enthusiastically while the woman she’s with – Alex – looks at him with an unimpressed expression. She’s wearing a black leather jacket and a pair of jeans. The plaid shirt only cements James’s assumption about her relationship with Kara. The black boots she’s wearing perfectly round out her butch appearance.
She looks like an unapologetic lesbian, and he’s just a bit afraid, because what if Kara has been ragging on him and his weird behavior towards her? Was he pushy in any way? Did he flirt too much? Did he make Kara uncomfortable?”

B) More good and long Kalex fics 

1) The one in which Alex inadvertently managed to get Kara pregnant

  • Danvers times Danvers by silverwriter01 ; @silverwriter01
  • Setting: Supergirl TV 2015 (DCU),
  • Relationship: Alex Danvers/Kara Danvers (Kalex) (f/f)
  • 43 Chapters, 58k words (completed)
  • Published: 2016/2017
  • Rating: Mature
  • Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply

When Alex is testing out a new weapon to transfer DNA (one of her many potential plans to save her father), she accidentally shoots Kara in the ovary. Thinking absolutely nothing would happen, Alex never mentioned she shot Kara with a vial of her DNA. Yet something does happen: Kara misses her period.

In a way Alex and Kara are doing it backwards. First Kara gets pregnant, then Alex and Kara marry “for the kid”, and then they might actually start to face their feelings…

This is a very domestic and pregnancy focused story. And ultimately there is a very funny sex scene.
We see a lot of protective Alex and a supportive Superfamily.

 

2) The one that starts with Alex/Lena and ends with Kalex

“Even though I still have feelings for someone else and that could lead to breaking your heart?”

“Lena,” Kara calls out, causing the other woman to turn back around with a questioning gaze, and there is so much Kara wants to tell her.

Very nice and well written series that starts with Alex/Lena but ends with Alex/Kara eventually.
There is this moment when Kara tried to initiate a threesome, to be together with Alex and Lena (and I think it would have been beautiful) and as a frequent polyshipper it nearly broke my heart when Lena refused.

I was looking for a hooker was the first fic in which I came across Alex/Lena and I also kind of fell in love with this (rare) ship.

 

Notes: If you want to find more AgentCorp, I have written a long Alex/Lena fic rec post here.
And if you want Alex/Kara/Lena fics, then you are pretty much out of luck. There is literally 1 (unfinished) but great fic on AO3: In My Heart, In My Soul, You’re In My Bones by earpcest and LesboDyke

 

3) The one with the giant slugs and the kiss after the surgery that Kara does not remember

  • The Secret by Black_Tea_and_Bones  ; @blackteaandbones
  • Setting: Supergirl TV 2015 (DCU),
  • Relationship: Alex Danvers/Kara Danvers (Kalex) (f/f)
  • 7 Chapters, 24k words (completed)
  • Published: 2016/2017
  • Rating: Mature
  • Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply

Kara has a secret, Alex is in a whole lot of denial, and Winn has no freaking idea how to fix it.
Also there are giant slugs.

When Kara wakes up after surgery, still groggy from the anesthetics, she kisses Alex. When she wakes up properly the next morning, she cannot remember anything. Things are weird at first.

I liked this story. It is well written and has some nice Alex and Winn interaction.
While there are more actions scenes and a bit more villain/alien of the week plot then in most fics, it is still mostly a romance and relationship driven story.
The slugs are kind of gross and funny at the same time.

Favorite Quote:

“She looked tired, and vulnerable, but there was steel in the set of her jaw and the line of her shoulders. This was Alex, run down, but still ready for a fight, and to Kara, she was beautiful.
She had always been beautiful.”

 

4) The one in which Kara comes out to Alex right after the RedK incident

UPDATED: Sadly this fic was deleted from AO3 after I had published this post.

image

There’s very little Alex would not do for Kara.
In fact, perhaps only one thing: she could never stop loving her. And it’s not that she wouldn’t try if Kara asked, per se, but it’s that she couldn’t stop if she wanted to.
She doesn’t know how.

This story has a very powerful, brilliant start: Kara comes out to Alex directly after red k incident – which is an interesting premise and leads to a quite angsty start of the story – the remaining story is must less angsty.

They come together much earlier than in most fics, we see how their relationship as lovers develops during a large part of the story.
Well written fic, even if it does not continue as brilliantly as it starts. Enjoyed it.

Favorite Quote:

“Alex hates Noonan’s, hates getting up early on her days off, hates stale air and cold coffee, but then again, there’s nothing she wouldn’t do for Kara when she asks. So they make it a more regular thing, every Sunday, 8:00 A.M. on the dot, and Alex simply drags herself out of bed with a grunt akin to a bear call when her alarm goes off.”

 

5) The one in which Kara grieves over Alex

  • Pieces. by Shadows_of_The_Night11
  • Setting: Supergirl TV 2015 (DCU), AU-ish
  • Relationship: Alex Danvers/Kara Danvers (Kalex) (f/f)
  • 9 Chapters, 40k words (completed)
  • Published: 2017/2018
  • Rating: Teen and up
  • Warning: major character death

The world falls apart again and Kara can’t do a thing to stop it. She can’t handle Alex’s absence when Alex is her everything and she has so many things to say. Maybe Kara learned things too late but maybe she’ll have a second chance.

This is a very sad and angsty fic – for about half of the story Kara is grieving and dealing with Alex’s death and the fact that she had failed to safe her. In the search for closure Kara travels to Earth-1 to ask Berry for help.  A lot of angst, ultimately with happy ending.

The scene in which Kara watches the holographic message that Alex had recorded for Kara in case of her death is really heartbreaking.

 

6) The one with a unique version of Kara’s backstory

  • People Gonna Talk by JoyfulTemplar ; @joyfultemplar
  • Setting: Supergirl TV 2015 (DCU),
  • Relationship: Alex Danvers/Kara Danvers (Kalex) (f/f), AU-ish
  • 7 Chapters, 66k words (completed)
  • Published: 2016/2017
  • Rating: Mature
  • Warning: Graphic Depictions Of Violence

One of National City’s gossip mags gets a clear shot of Special Agent Alex Danvers evacuating Supergirl out of a Kryptonite irradiated area. A picture of the ensuing hug, then flight away, gets tongues wagging across the nation. Awkward about the tabloid discussion about the nature of their relationship, Kara and Alex must lay low and confront some long buried feelings. (TW: includes discussion of pseudo-incest and the difference between familial and romantic love)

A large part of the beginning of the story is told from other people’s POV: an DEO agent’s when she needs to collect clothes for Alex and Kara, Lucy’s when she needs to take care of Kara after she had a panic attack.
The author introduces several OCs who are flashed out nicely and written well. The story emphasizes action and fighting much than most of the other fics in this list.

In this story we see things we normally don’t see: A fascinating flashback to Kara’s first weeks on earth with Clark, before he brought her to the Danvers. And several flashbacks to Kara’s childhood on Krypton, that was sadder, more angsty and much more brutal than I had expected.
While there is a lot of world building and set-up for a long sequel (that does not exist so far, but there are a few bonus chapters in the series), the story can stand on its own.

The story is quite angsty, very well written and I loved many thinks about it: I loved the “most people just assume they are married” thing. I loved Kara as an artist and the pieces of her life and her love for Alex that are told through her art.

In my opinion this is one of the stories that does evolve quite a bit from the beginning to the end and I must admit that I liked the first part much more than the second part, which is focused more on Kara’s backstory on Krypton.

Favorite Quotes:

The conclusion most people come to, at least that Lucy has observed, is that the two are married. Kara and Alex do nothing to dissuade them of the notion, and since their normal behaviour is ridiculously coupley no one ever questions it further. Everytime this happened, Lucy always wondered if they were doing this knowingly or if it was such an ingrained habit that they didn’t notice people’s assumptions. Well, they make a for a beautiful couple anyway, regardless if they actually are one or not.

“Mom, please…for once can you just–”

Eliza just half-heartedly interrupted her plea. “I’ll see you at Easter. I’m glad you’re going to be okay. I love you Alex.”

“I love you too, Mom.” She did. Alex loved her mother, but sometimes she really didn’t like her.

 

7) The one in which Alex and Kara had been married already

  • Stronger Together by barnaby317 ; @barnaby317
  • Setting: Supergirl TV 2015 (DCU),
  • Relationship: Alex Danvers/Kara Danvers (Kalex) (f/f)
  • 1 Chapters, 8k words (completed)
  • Published: 2016
  • Rating: Not Rated
  • Warning: Creator Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings

When Kara goes missing, Alex has to face some truths and her feelings
or
Kara does something totally unexpected

Supergirl/Kara gets kidnapped and after she is rescued she confesses her love to Alex, who is struggling with this.

This story’s twist is that Alex and Kara had (sort of) married after Kara came to Earth, but Alex’s parents had made them annul it.

I really liked the twist in this story. One small detail that I particularly loved is that Cat keeps calling Alex Agent Scully.

 

8) The one in which Kara tries to seduce an oblivious Alex

  • If you fail, try, try again by dare121 ; @goshdarnitjay
  • Setting: Supergirl TV 2015 (DCU),
  • Relationship: Alex Danvers/Kara Danvers (Kalex) (f/f)

Alex is feeling absolutely devastated after Maggie tells her at the bar that she doesn’t want to be with her.
Kara is there to comfort her.
And then Kara starts acting weird.
or,
that time Kara tries to subtly seduce Alex, and Alex is a little bit oblivious

A well written, funny and romantic medium length fic that is exact what the author’s summary promises.

 

9) The one in which Alex gets rejected by Maggie and Kara is very supportive of Alex’s coming out

  • Blurred Lines by ChiotWriter (IgnisHeron)
  • Setting: Supergirl TV 2015 (DCU),
  • Relationship: Alex Danvers/Kara Danvers (Kalex) (f/f)
  • 32 Chapters, 77k words (completed)

Kara and Alex had always been glued by the hips ever since Kara was sent to live with the human family, the Danvers. Over the years, unlike most foster sisters, the two were closer than ever, especially after Kara delved into the world of super-heroism, and her sister tagging along the ride as one of the best DEO agents around. They have never considered questioning why they were always, better together. They just knew they were, and they were sure that nothing could ever come in their way — Until, Alex discovered that she was a lesbian….and that she might be in love with a certain detective.

Then; things started to change.

The story starts at the end of season 1 and retells (most of) season 2. We see some flashbacks to their childhood, e.g. when Alex met Kara for the first time. There is quite a bit of Alex coming out and discovery journey, including Kara and Alex going to a lesbian bar for the first time.

The author labeled Alex/Kara and Alex/Maggie in relationships, but although for the first half of the story, it could have easily been a slow burn Sanvers Story with some confused Kalex feelings thrown in – this is a Kalex and not a Sanvers story; there is no love triangle and there is no romantic relationship between Alex and Maggie after Maggie rejected Alex initial romantic advances (although ultimately they become friends).

This is a well written story and not an angsty fic. There are many funny scenes, e.g. Kara being a overly hyped lesbian supporter after Alex came out.

There are great interactions between Kara and Alex, Alex and Maggie and Alex and Eliza (end these are what I think really make this story worth reading, but I feel the story is somewhat dragged down a bit by the villain of the week plot that is not that great and unnecessarily makes the story longer.

Favorite Quote:

“Kara shook her head as Alex returned to her seat, “No it’s a notification from tumblr. Ooh Alex, you have to get a tumblr account!” Kara was buzzing with excitement at the idea.
Alex was not. She frowned, “What for? I already have Facebook.”
[…]

“Because, Alex, tumblr is a must have for lesbians! Lots of wonderful information could be gleaned from this site!” Kara’s eyes shone sinfully bright, too bright for the ridiculous statement that she had just said. “

 

10) The one in which we see Alex and Kara’s wedding through Cat’s point of view

  • Soul Mates Never Die (Series) by barnaby317 ; @barnaby317
  • Setting: Supergirl TV 2015 (DCU) AU-ish (a bit Alternate Universe)
  • Relationship:  Alex Danvers/Kara Danvers (Kalex) (f/f)
  • Rating: Mature – Explicit
  • Warning: Creator Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings

The series consists of 3 stories.

1) Soul Deep (2016)

5 Chapters, 4k words (completed)

“The pain appeared seconds after her first real exposure to Earths yellow sun before her body became extraordinary as her mother exclaimed but it wasn’t until she was safely ensconced in her new bed chamber later that evening that Kara Zor-El, Kara Danvers as she was now to be known, discovered exactly what the pain had been.”
or
Kara gets soul markings and so does Alex…

2) Soul Deep 2 (2016)

1 Chapters, 2k words (completed)

In which Kara and Alex finally seal the bond
Reading Soul Deep is imperative, you won’t understand this if you don’t!

3) Soul Connection (2016)

1 Chapters, 3k words (completed)

The wedding between Alex and Kara as seen through Cat’s eyes
or
Cat gets her very own happy ending.

The first two stories are nicely written Kalex stories that center around Alex having known that she was Kara’s soulmate for a long time, but she hid her feelings and her mark from Kara to protect her.

The reason why I included this series is the third story: Soul Connection. It is about Kara’s and Alex’s wedding, told from Cat’s point of view. This is not only an interesting twist, but this story is excellent (stronger than the first two), as the author brilliantly and lovingly manages to capture Cat’s voice. Also, there is a nice surprise waiting for Cat at the wedding.

This is the only Soulmate AU for which I included as a full rec. – see below for more AU links

20170101-kalex(ffh)-line

 

C) Short (story) recs

1) Four times any reasonable person would assume Kara and Alex were a couple and one time a completely unreasonable one did by outlier

“Given available data, the logical assumption would be that Kara and Alex were together. Like, girlfriends together.”

Short and sweet – A well written short fic that is exactly what the title promised

2) Plus One Forever by DisguisedasInnocent

“In a manner more the product of coincidence than planning Kara Danvers has kept the two differing aspects of her life separate: Cat Co Entertainment and the Department of Extra-Normal Operations. However, when the Annual Employees Dinner for Cat Co comes around Kara puts Alex Danvers, her foster sister, down as her plus one without thinking leading Cat Grant coming to an interesting conclusion about Kara’s private life.”

Nice short fic that plays with the she “thought we were marries theme”

3) Mrs. Danvers by seaunicorn

“When Alex and Kara attend a fancy gala together, someone misinterprets them sharing a last name as them being a married couple, and Kara just kind of goes with it (much to Alex’s confusion).”

Very nice story.

4) Ancient Kryptonian Customs by dare121

“Alex and Kara have kissed many times throughout the years.”

Really enjoyed this 5k words story.

5) Fake It ‘Til You Make It by dare121

“Alex and Kara go on a mission. Alex isn’t into it.
She has about zero interest in pretending that she’s married to Kara, mainly because she wishes the marriage wasn’t just pretend.”

Very nice but ends before there is a real resolution.

6) practice makes complicated by justanexercise

“When Kara despairs over a broken nose and a bad kiss, she asks Alex to teach her to kiss.”

Some angst but a mostly lighthearted. A well written short fic.

7) A Lie Less Ordinary [AO3] [web achieve] and A Day Less Ordinary [AO3] [web achieve] by beaglesinbowties (Girlblunder)

“Faced with an unanticipated situation, Kara tells a lie – A Very Big Lie that serves to make life very difficult for both her and Alex.”

E) Kalex AU links

While I might do a separate AU post (or not), but if I don’t at least here are some AU links. I have not read all of them, but I have read and liked fics from each of the author’s

When in Kansas . . . by Keziah

Kara and Kal-El landed in a field in Kansas after years in the phantom zone. After fighting to accustom herself to a new culture, while raising a child, at 26 Kara finally has everything she wants. Clark is happy in high school and they live on a small farm with space to raise enough food for two Kryptonians while still turning a small profit. She has plenty of friends, and time to study whatever she wants. She can fly around the world in less than ten minutes and knows the best places across the globe to get takeout for her game nights. She doesn’t need a girlfriend (even if Clark is crushing on that girl in his math class and tells her she needs to get out more so he doesn’t feel weird being the only one dating).

Enter Dr. Alexandra Danvers, who literally crashes into her life.

 

Coffee on Wednesdays by dare121, karas-adorable-smile (Coara)

Kara Kent has worked at CatCo Coffee for over four years, and she’s been Supergirl for three.

Alex Danvers has been a detective for a year when her life gets turned upside down and she decides to take time off from work. After a year on the road, she moves to National City, ready and willing to get her life back on track.

Or, that time Jay wanted to write a cute coffee shop au one shot and ended up with 29 chapters instead.

 

Noumenon [AO3] [web achieve] by beaglesinbowties (Girlblunder)

Alex is a child when her world changes forever and she meets Kara of El. Over the next several years, they grow and bond in ways that threaten what others feel is the natural order of things – for in this world Kryptonians rule Earth, and humans are little more than pets or tools to be utilized.

Sci-fi/fantasy AU borrowing some from actual lore and re-imagined in a world where Kara is the equivalent of a Kryptonian Princess and Alex is her servant.
