" My abusive Mom found out about our engagement" "Shit" Au
Luckily, Adora was always welcome in the Bright Moon household, which gave her and her hopefully-sometime-in-the-future fiancé time to scheme over take out.
“We could elope,” Glimmer suggested, quick to shift the subject from her previous plan, which was to murder Adora’s mom.
She did like that plan better, she had to admit.

Does Bow know one of those columns of magic he’s looking at is Glimmer’s? Can he sense it? He and Entrapta were so close to the Fright Zone, they had to have been able to see hers.
He’s a smart boy, he has to at least suspect it.
This is the kind of thing that keeps me up at night.

That glitra spy au sounds great
It’s a bit of a riff on Mr. and Mrs. Smith, but it’s been twisted pretty hard from the original!
Glimmer and Catra are spies for opposite sides of a conflict (which I have not figured out what the conflict is yet, yay me) in this modern but yes powers AU. They end up becoming friends and then the pressure on people who are single starts to mount in the base they are both working from. So the two end up entering a sham marriage and have to pretend their well known rivalry was just sexual tension that broke when they got drunk married one night.
And in typical fake marriage/fake date au’s they slowly learn that they are ACTUALLY in love with one another and are laughing about doing things totally in reverse.
And then they both go, “Hey, there’s something I need to tell you. Something you have to know before we go any further” and they’re both playing the “Please, let me go first this is really important!” card until they find out their status as enemy combatants/spies.
As is the case is so many of my wips I never figured out where I wanted to take this, but I don’t want it to be a big heartbreak, sad, angst fic again. So it would be more hijinks and comedy about the situation. Add a dash of Gomez/Morticia in there two, the two are all over one another but there’s always the implication that they will kill one another at the drop of a hat.
“Why didn’t you do the dishes?” “I dunno, why did you PLANT THAT BOMB AT THE GALA????” “....fucking fine I’ll do the dishes!”
Slow dancing only to accidentally find one another’s guns.
And my fav, desperately stripping down to have sex and just finding more and more hidden weapons until it becomes a competition for who is hiding more on their person (Catra, Glimmer uses a pocket dimension and that’s cheating!)
