Bomb Girls, Vera Burr & Kate Andrews friendship with references to Kate/Betty. 6300 words. Written for the 2013 Rare Women Fanfic Exchange. Canon compatible through 2x11 (but not the finale).
Summary: It’s 1952, and thanks to an unexpected encounter over gloves in Eaton’s Department Store, Vera sees an old friend—maybe for the first time.
Kate shrugs, taking the opportunity to reach for the teapot. The tea hasn’t steeped enough, of course, but she doesn’t seem to care. Vera remembers that Kate never minded her tea lightly flavored. Weak, Gladys had called it, and Kate always said no, the flavor’s there, you just have to try a little harder to taste it.
In the light of the finale (p.s. SOBS FOREVER, etc.), there needs to be a McAndrews fanvid to Parachute by Ingrid Michaelson, right? RIGHT? RIGHT???? RIGHT. EVERY LINE IS SO SPOT ON.
I love her, and that’s the beginning and end of everything.
I found a friend Betty. A real friend. Who loved me.
