Wait For Me To Come Home is a Supergirl, Kara/Lena story by lostariels. As of June 2022, it has over 260,000 hits, 7800 kudos, 2200 comments, and 1000 bookmarks on Archive of Our Own.


When Lena meets Kara, a soldier home on leave as she waits for her next deployment, at a local coffee shop one afternoon, her life is completely tipped upside down in an instant. As they start talking, Lena feels drawn to Kara; there's something about her warmth and openness that fills the gap left by Lena's troubled childhood.
Growing closer over the next few months, falling fast for each other, the two of them find themselves unable to stay away, but Kara's next deployment is inevitable, and with promises that she'll come home, Lena waits for her.

Reactions and Reviews

idk where to even start on this fic honestly, im pretty sure most people have read this bc it’s a rite of passage but fuck it gets me everytime!!!! Army au and there is so much angst and I love it[1]

Lostariels’ “wait for me to come home” is good on angst. It’s a really cute fic and then it gets super super angst and I actually cried. But it does end happy and everything works out.[2]

So much fluff. A little angst. It’s lostariels you know the drill. Happy ending.[3]

Fuck off, what an amazing author. One of the very first fics I read and still with me to this day. Go read their other works too![4]

The most devastatingly beautiful fanfic I’ve ever read for SuperCorp. The “Twist and Shout” of the SuperCorp fandom. A rollercoaster of joy and anguish. Complete with an adorable and fluffy happy ending to cushion the previous pain. 1000% vouch for this story. I refuse to live in a world where it is not the most renowned fic for these beautiful lesbians! They just want love but The CW insists on the infliction of compulsory heternormity.[5]

I just recently read one of the best AU fics I have ever had the pleasure of reading, and it impacted me so much I just had to create a book cover for it. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for an amazing love story, with passion, angst and…I won’t spoil the ending but it will have you crying and laughing and wanting more.[6]

This fic will fuck you up. I was completely destroyed after reading this it is so good and angsty and fluffy at times and it is just all around incredible and i cant give it a higher praise[7]

A story I recommend: if anyone feels like having their heart crushed to pieces bit by bit before it can be rebuilt again, try lostariels' Wait For Me To Come Home.[8]

Okay but if you haven't read lostariels are you even a Supercorp shipper? The queen of angst with a happy ending, it makes the end so satisfying[9]
