Here ya go, its the first part of the fic I promised Ralph, hope ya'll enjoy it.

Secrets of the Night

Chapter One

Leela watched Fry as he played his heart out for her, a heart she would soon have to break. As much as she hated to do it, it had to be done. He’d done so much for her, all because he loved her. But she couldn’t love him back, and that was a fact that wasn’t going to change anytime soon. As she listened to the final notes fade, Leela watched the holophoner images of Fry and herself kiss and walk into the distance, and inside she cringed. Fry stopped playing and looked to her hopefully as Leela braced herself for what she was about to do.
“That was beautiful Fry,” she said softly, mentally slapping herself as Fry’s look of hope grew into a smile.
“It was for a beautiful person,” he said suavely, climbing down off the stage and walking towards Leela, who immediately stood up.
“Please Fry, don’t. This is going to be hard enough already,” said Leela, almost sadly. Fry’s grin instantly disappeared, “What do you mean Leela?”
“I’m sorry Fry. Really I am, the opera was wonderful but…” Leela trailed off.
“But what Leela?”
“I can’t love you; you’re not right for me.”
  Fry had been moving towards Leela, but at those words he froze. The colour drained from his face and his whole body shook, with anger.
“Not right for you! I’ve done more for you then anyone, I found your parents for you, I got rid of the worms for you, I did everything I could, and I’m not right for you?” he shouted, all his pent up frustration shining through. Leela slowly backed away, not so afraid of Fry hurting her as to her hurting him.
“Try to understand Fry, we wouldn’t work,”
“Why, because you’d rather be used by jerks like Branigan?” spat Fry in disgust, trying to hide how hurt he was. Leela stopped backing up and looked at Fry with a mixture of pity and contempt.
“You wouldn’t understand Fry,”
“Try me!”
“Look, you’re my friend Fry and I care about you. But I don’t, can’t and won’t ever love you in that way, so just drop it.”
“You don’t love me because you never give me a chance!”
Leela’s patience began to wear thin and she felt her temper begin to flare up as Fry refused to give up.
“I never gave you a chance because I don’t want you damn it!” she yelled in frustration.
“Why not!” screamed Fry, not understanding how this could be happening. After everything, she still wouldn’t give him a chance.
“I wish I could tell you Fry, really I do. But there are some things that are better left unsaid.”
“This isn’t one of them Leela, just tell me why and I’ll leave you alone!” begged Fry dropping to his knees with tears streaming down his face. Leela turned away, so as not to see the heartache she had caused.
“I’m sorry Fry,” she whispered as she walked out of the opera house leaving Fry totally broken.

“I’m sorry Amy, but I have to go,” stated Kif sadly, not looking Amy in the eyes, not wanting to see the disappointment that would shine through a veil of restrained tears.
“But you have three days left!” said Amy, her voice breaking in an effort not to show how she felt.
“I know I do, but Zapp wants me now…” explained Kif, trying to block out the guilt he was feeling. At the sound of Zapp’s name, Amy burst into a rage, fuelled by jealousy and sorrow.
“Choose Kif!” she shouted, “Right now, me or him!”
“What?!” stuttered Kif in terrified realisation.
“What’s more important Kif, me or your job?” demanded Amy, almost hopeful that just once she would be more important than Kif’s job.
“You can’t ask me to choose like that!” stammered Kif, and Amy’s hopes crashed.
“Then I guess that’s answer enough, go Kif, go to your precious job and your wonderful Zappy,” said Amy, her voice loaded with venom to disguise her pain.
“Amy…” said Kif, placing a hand on Amy, who immediately flinched away.
“Get the hell off me! I never want to see you again; I wish I’d never seen you in the first place! You’re a coward Kif; you won’t even stand up to your jackass captain when you know it could save lives! Well hell to you, I hope you’ll be happy waxing his legs because we’re done!” yelled Amy, her voice rising with every word. She watched Kif’s camouflage reflex kick in with a strange satisfaction, listened to him struggle for an answer to her tirade. When she realised he couldn’t find one she span on her heel and stormed off.

Leela walked slowly along the dark streets, thinking about what she had just done to Fry. She felt guilty because she knew she had completely destroyed Fry, but she didn’t regret it. She knew things wouldn’t work for her and Fry because Fry wasn’t the type of person she wanted in life. Leela had made a lot of mistakes in her life, but they had all moved her forwards, helped her realise what she wanted. She wanted…
“Amy!” called out Leela, seeing the Asian belle slumped against a wall in tears. At the sound of her name, Amy jerked her head up.
“Who is it?” she asked, her voice overrun by sobs.
“It’s Leela,” replied Leela, slowly approaching Amy.
“Oh…I thought it might be Kif,” sniffed Amy forlornly. Leela reached Amy’s side and put a comforting arm around her.
“What happened?” asked Leela concernedly, as Amy shrugged defeatedly.
“He chose his job over me again,” she muttered as her tears flowed from her eyes.
“But I thought he had three days left,”
“Zapp wanted him back, so of course he went,” sighed Amy, subconsciously resting her head on Leela’s shoulder, “so I finished with him. He didn’t even try to change my mind…” Amy sobbed. Leela couldn’t find appropriate words to console Amy so she settled with gently hugging her.
“It’ll be okay Amy,” she softly reassured, not knowing what else to say as she felt Amy relax in her arms.

Leela stood there holding Amy, not knowing what to do. It was so nice to be able to comfort someone, yet Leela was beginning to feel uneasy. It was almost too nice a feeling.
“It’s getting cold, maybe we should get you home?” suggested Leela quietly. Amy lifted her head from Leela’s shoulder with an almost dazed expression on her tearstained face.
“Um…I…Thanks Leela, you’re a real friend,” mumbled Amy before almost regretfully adding, “I think I can get home on my own now, my car’s just around the corner.”
“Right, er, okay then, I’ll see you at work tomorrow, bye Amy”
“I could give you a lift if you like?” offered Amy, and Leela almost agreed, just to extend their time together.
“Yea…I mean, no thanks Amy…I need to clear my head, it’s been a confusing night,”
“Okay then,” said Amy sounding slightly dejected, “See you tomorrow Leela,”
“Tomorrow,” whispered Leela as she watched Amy walk into the distance.

I like it.  I'm sure some of the Leela/Fry shippers will be apalled and offended, but alternate lifestyles are a way of life for some people.

Even though Leela does have her feminine side, I could see her pursuing an alternate lifestyle, either to experiment or from sheer frustration of dealing with men (her choices haven't exactly been the things that 'happily ever after' stories are written of).

As nice as Fry has been to her, it takes more than a friendship, no matter how deep and personal, to be the basis of becoming intimate with them.

A long-winded way of saying - good start.  Here's hoping the rest continues being as good.

Glad you like the start and I hope so too. The story seems to flow well and I really want to do a good job on it. I'm gonna take my time with this one so I don't mess up. Hopefully everyone will enjoy the story, even though it doesn't follow the traditional ship.

Impressive ...

Since the fic just has started I can not comment very much yet, but that it is a good start. I'll make sure to be here more regulary in the next time, waiting for the story to continue.

So far: I'm impressed that you've choosen the end of the last (yet) aired episode for beginning with your fan fic. It's been to "obvious" for lots of fans that it could only continue with Leela and Fry finding each other, but you have tried and - in my opinion - succesfully managed to give the events an unforseen turn in another direction.

I am really curious how the fic will continue. How will Leela and Amy find to each other and how will be the reactions of other characters, as there will be Fry, Kif ... maybe even Zapp?
Will we see surprising guest appearances, as there could be ... hmmm ... Amazonians, Adlai, Leela's parents, Amy's parents, ... or even the "Lesbian Coven next door" (as mentioned in Futurestock)? We shall see and I hope this - the posting of the next part of the story - will be pretty soon.

Ah, TLL can disregard the question I asked in her thread (about reading this fic).

As for Leela, she could easily be bi-sexual or a lesbian in hiding/denial.  There is no doubt that she can be very feminine, but she seems to default to a more, uh, tomboyish personna most of the time.

Considering her horrible track record with men, she may have decided to give her underlying lesbian feelings a try - a relationship with Amy couldn't end any worse than most of her relationships with men.

Fry's a great guy who she cares a lot for, but he just doesn't have the things that she's looking for in an intimate lover or a person to spend her life with.

Depsite their sniping at each other, Amy and Leela do have a special bond with each other - both see things in each other that they themselves don't have.  Amy's wealth, self-confidence with men and education are things that Leela doesn't have, whereas Leela is athletic, self-confident, self-sufficient and has a certain 'inner strength' that Amy lacks.

I don't know how far this fic plans to go, but please let it evolve to the point that Amy introduces Leela to Amy's parents as her lover.  Leo and Inez will have a stroke when they realize that Leela can't get Amy pregant and give them grandchildren.

And Zapp.  Jesus, Zapp will be trying to find a way to get himself involved in a menage-a-trois (a hot three-way for the non-sophisticated).

There are so many ways this fic can go.  I'm just along for the ride.

And there's always the chance that The Lesbian Leela (Daniela) may make an appearance.

Juliet, you have a lot of guts to be writing this fic - especially since I was the one who requested it.  I am in your debt and I'm sure that you'll make it very interesting.

Who knows ... ? I mean this is the 31st century. Who knows what is possible, involving genetic engeneering and all?

I think Fry gave there a hint in that direction in "Futurestock": "We might not be a traditional family like the Murphy's next door or the Lesbian coven across the street."

Still, it'll be fun to see Leo's and Inez' reaction. First Amy has an Amphibean Alien as boyfriend, then a Cyclopean Mutant as girlfriend ...

Seriously, that would be great and I would feel totally honoured.  smile

I'm working on the update now, and I'm not promosing anything but I might, just might, put  you in a future update Daniela. Don't ask when though because right now its about Amy and Leela struggling to admit their feelings to themselves, let alone eachother.

I will also add that I am honoured that you and Ralph and Ol'Coot bother with my thread,    big grin

Sorry for the double post but...UPDATE

Chapter two

The next morning couldn’t come quickly enough for Leela, yet when it was there it had come too soon. Leela rushed to get ready for work at whirlwind speed so she wouldn’t be late, yet part of her wished she didn’t have to go. She needed the money and she was subconsciously looking forwards to seeing Amy, but she didn’t want to deal with Fry.
“It’ll be okay, it’ll be okay, it’ll be okay,” she chanted to herself, trying to concentrate on getting dressed.
After ten minutes of struggling she managed to get into her trousers, top and boots and she then started trying to deal with her unruly hair. Dragging a brush through her wild curls she contemplated not bothering with work, before quickly dismissing the idea. She had made her bed and she was going to lie in it and besides, she had told Amy she would see her today. Not that Amy mattered that much Leela quickly told herself, shaking her head to clear dazed thoughts from her mind. Leela just wanted to check Amy was alright…and murder Kif if she wasn’t.

Amy covered her ears in a desperate attempt to block out the sound of her alarm going off. When she realised it wasn’t going to work she dragged herself out of bed and into her closet.
“I’ll have the normal please,” she mumbled, and when she walked out of the closet she was dressed in her pink tracksuit and her hair was perfect. She left her room and headed downstairs to the kitchen. As she walked she wiped away the remains as the tears she had cried the night before, as she contemplated the events that had unfurled. Kif was gone, and it was her fault. Oh if only she hadn’t made him choose between her and his job, she should have known it was useless, that she was never going to come above his job. Then again, maybe it was a good thing, the fact that he had chosen his job over her again showed her where she stood in his eyes, and it wasn’t high enough. Now that she thought about it, the brake up with Kif meant she was free to find someone who cared about her, who would put her above everything else. As soon as the thought entered her head a mental picture formed. It was Leela. Amy shook her head, throwing the picture from her mind, though not quickly enough to stop her wondering what it meant in her subconscious. Slowly, she put together an answer. An obvious answer when she thought about it. When Amy had broken up with Kif, the first and so far only person to comfort her was Leela. That Amy remembered how soft Leela’s shoulder was when she rested her head on it or that Amy remembered the scent of the perfume Leela was wearing meant nothing. The fact that Amy had liked it when Leela put her arms around her also meant nothing. The feeling of regret when she had left the warm embrace or the sadness when Leela had declined Amy’s offer of a lift home, all of it didn’t mean anything. So why was Amy wishing she had stayed in the cold with Leela?

By the time Leela had managed to get her hair into a ponytail it was almost time for her to be at work. Not understanding why it had taken her so long to get ready, Leela skipped breakfast and headed out to the street. She all but ran to the nearest transport tube and shouted
“Planet Express Building!” and she was instantly sucked up and along the twisting tube towards her job. To take her mind off the journey she let her thoughts wonder. Would Fry be at work today? If he was then how would he be around her? Leela hoped he didn’t hate her for what she had done to him, because she loved him as a friend, and even though it could never be more then that, Leela would miss Fry if he blocked her out completely.
“Not that I could blame him,” Leela muttered to herself. She had known when she asked Fry to keep playing that she was going to break his heart, she had planned how to do it so it would hurt him, because she knew it was the only way the message would get through. Though she would never let anyone know, it had hurt her to hurt him, to see the light in his eyes brighten and then go out, all because of her. Leela wished that there had been another way, but there hadn’t been. If she had gone out with him then she would have dumped him sooner or later and that would have hurt him worse, and he would have carried on chasing her, thinking that if she would go out with him once then she would do it again. The way she had done it was better, although it had completely crushed him, he would get over it, and when he did he would stop chasing her, she hoped. If he didn’t stop then Leela have to resort to telling him why she didn’t want him, though she hoped it wouldn’t come to that. It was a secret she’d been hiding since she had broken up with Chaz, and she didn’t really want anyone to find out about it. If she told anyone then she could imagine what would happen, the way she’d be treated differently, the looks she would get because of it, it was better to keep it a secret unless she had to tell anyone. Leela wondered how things would have been if she’d been more like Amy, if she had more confidence with guys and she’d had a decent education, and if she had money to spare. Maybe she wouldn’t be hiding her secret now; maybe she wouldn’t have it at all.

Leela wondered if Amy was going to be okay. Leela knew that Amy had loved Kif and the fact that Kif had picked his job over Amy must have hurt her a lot. Leela was glad she had found Amy when she had, or heaven knows what would have happened to her. Leela smiled slightly as she remembered how Amy had relaxed in her arms and rested her head on Leela’s shoulder, how Amy’s tears how slowed to stop as Leela held her gently. Leela had enjoyed being able to provide comfort for once, the feeling that she could make everything better, and protect Amy from hurt just by holding her. Just by caring. It wasn’t the same motherly protectiveness she felt for Fry and Bender, it was so much more. It was a need to sooth Amy’s pain mixed with disbelief that Kif could be as stupid as to let Amy go. If Leela had been Kif she wouldn’t have let go, she would have fought to hold onto Amy even if it cost her job. Leela deliberately cut off herself there, deciding it wasn’t wise to venture into that train of thought. Yet as she whirled though the transport tube she couldn’t help but remember the night before. The smell of Amy’s perfume, the softness of her hair, how it had felt to hold her and the confusing throng of emotions that had started over taking Leela’s heart and clouding her mind. Leela sighed softly and closed her eye, letting the memory take her over; until she was brought back to earth with a bump as the tube spat her out onto the concrete. Standing up slowly, Leela looked up at the Planet Express building and ran a hand through her hair. It was going to be a hell of a day.

Amy relaxed in her car as she cruised to work; the control she felt in her car was hard to get elsewhere and so she enjoyed it while she could. Sure she could get guys at will, and she had more money than she knew what to do with, but she never really felt in control. The same way she was never that confident in herself, she knew she was a klutz and she felt under constant pressure to keep her slim feminine figure. Sometimes she wished she could be more like Leela, self-confident and self-sufficient, strong and athletic and commanding. Like last night, when Amy had been an emotional wreck, Leela had been there to take control and help Amy calm down. Amy remembered Leela’s strong arms wrapped around her, protecting and soothing her, instead of taking advantage of her like guys would have done. The way Leela had been so caring, so sincere. It had been nice for Amy to feel like she was being put first, just for once. Amy’s reverie was broken by blaring horns hailing the fact that she was on the wrong side of the road. Swerving back on track, Amy pulled into the Planet Express employees parking zone, or as Amy called it, the grubby strip of tarmac behind the hell hole. As she got out of her car she was struck by a thought. Why hadn’t Leela been with Fry last night? Surely after the opera they were together so why had Leela been alone? Amy looked up at the Planet Express building; it was going to be an interesting day.

I just tried to reply to the update, but it happens that I posted too much  love smileys and the posting got deleeted.

Anyhow, I'll try to write it again ...

UPDATE!
Wonderful! Amazing!
I saw it, I read it, I like it ... very much!

All is sooo amazing ...

Leela taking lots of time struggling to get into her clothes.

Amy's magical closet. Seriously, someone should invent that one ...

Also, I hope you'll excuse this joke, but I can't help but to notice that Amy - in this part of the story - came "out of the closet" ...  roll eyes

Seriously, this is amazing!

I'm also glad you liked the update so much, it took ages to figure out what to write so I'm glad the effort was worth it. I'll write more as soon as I figure out where I'm going to take the story, which shouldn't take long. Hope you'll look forward to it

Edit: I've just worked out how to get you into the story. It won't be untill later in the story, but I know how you fit into it now!

Oh he'll find out,*smirks and giggles*

Update!

Chapter three

Leela paused at the Planet Express entrance; wondering if Amy was already in there, wondering if Fry was there telling Amy what she had done. Leela’s breath hitched at the thought, what would Amy think of Leela when she heard how Leela had broken Fry’s heart and wouldn’t tell him why. Leela panicked as she imagined Amy’s reaction, would she be disgusted at Leela’s treatment of Fry, would she hate Leela for being so callous with Fry’s feelings? Leela wasn’t sure she could handle it if Amy hated her, or even disliked her now. Leela was torn between running into the boardroom and finding out if Amy and Fry were in there or running away so she wouldn’t have to. Leela felt her breathing speed up and she slowly lost hold of her tightly reigned self-control, terrified of entering the boardroom and finding Amy hating her. Fighting to maintain control of herself Leela frantically told herself that Amy might not even be in there, Fry might not be in there, but her mind screamed what if they are inside? She asked herself why it mattered so much if Amy hated her, her mind told her that it just did. It brought pictures of the night before, of Leela holding Amy, caring for Amy, lovin…Leela cut herself off abruptly, refusing to listen. It was impossible, Leela and Amy had done nothing but snipe at each other since Leela had joined Planet Express, apart from rare moments, there was no way Leela’s feelings could change overnight. Yet her mind insisted on bringing up the night before, asking Leela if that was what people who disliked each other did? Leela had no answer, just the frantic beating of her heart warning her.
“Keep Out. Don’t Look. Keep Out. Don’t Look!” it told her, urging her to run, not to risk finding out that Amy hated her. Half of Leela didn’t want to find out and half of her needed to.
“Are you okay?” asked a voice behind Leela, breaking her out of her reverie and making her spin round to face her questioner.

It was Amy. Leela looked in disbelief, Amy wasn’t in the boardroom, she was outside, not with Fry. Which meant, Leela realised, she didn’t know what Leela had done. She didn’t know which meant she didn’t hate Leela. Leela felt tears rise to her eye and she struggled to blink them back, she was relieved yet she wanted to cry. She stared at Amy a little more before giving into her urges and sinking to the ground, bringing her knees up to her chest and rocking herself slowly back and forth, letting her tears roll freely. Amy looked puzzled by Leela’s behaviour, which was so different to her normal controlled attitude, before realising something must be wrong and worrying.
“Leela, what’s wrong?” she questioned, her voice full of concern. Leela looked at Amy through a veil of tears, before answering in a choked whisper.
“I thought you hated me,”
Whatever answer Amy had expected it hadn’t been that, a puzzled frown etching itself on her face.
“Why would I hate you? Especially after last night,”
“Because…because of what I did to Fry…” sobbed Leela, staring at Amy, looking for any sign of disgust. Amy’s puzzled look increased tenfold, wondering what the hell Fry had to do with Leela’s current state.
“What did you do to Fry that could make me hate you?”
“I broke his heart Amy, and I wouldn’t tell him why I was doing it! I thought you were in there and he’d told you and you’d be disgusted and hate me!” rambled Leela, her tears pouring out. Amy didn’t know what to say, seeing Leela in such an upset state was bad enough, but the fact that she was in that state because she thought Amy would hate her was mind boggling. Amy looked at Leela in tears on the floor and felt the urge to do something, so she crouched down beside her and cupped Leela’s cheeks in her hands, forcing Leela to look directly into her eyes.
“Leela, whatever happened between you and Fry is between you two okay, I don’t hate you,” she said softly, using her thumbs to wipe away Leela’s tears.
“I couldn’t stand it if you hated me Amy!” wept Leela hysterically.
“Shush, its okay Leela, I don’t hate you,” reassured Amy, “but why does it matter so much to you?”
“I don’t know and I can’t stand it! All I know is something changed Amy, and you can’t hate me!”
“I don’t hate you,” repeated Amy, slowly standing up, pulling Leela up with her. “Now tell me exactly what happened with you and Fry to make you lose control like this,”
“I told him I couldn’t love him and it wouldn’t work, I said he wasn’t right for me and he wouldn’t understand if I told him why, I yelled at him that I never gave him a chance because I didn’t want him, and I wouldn’t tell him why,” sniffled Leela, not looking at Amy’s face. Amy gently turned Leela’s face to hers again.
“Tell me why Leela, whatever it is I promise I won’t hate you,”
“I can’t Amy, you say now you wouldn’t hate me, but you would, everyone would,” insisted Leela, her tears drying as she tried to look away from Amy’s face, but Amy wouldn’t let her.
“I won’t hate you Leela,”
“You’ll be disgusted with me then,”
“I won’t, I promise,”
“You can’t promise me that!”
“I can and I am, now please Leela, tell me what’s wrong,”

Leela looked into Amy’s eyes searchingly, not saying a word to break the silence Amy’s question had left. Amy accepted Leela’s searching gaze unflinchingly, holding her tongue, know that if Leela was going to tell her she would do it in her own time. Leela broke off her search and paused to consider what she had seen in Amy’s eyes, honesty, sincerity, concern and worry, and maybe something else. Leela opened her mouth to say something then thought better of it. She looked at Amy again and then she made her decision.
“I can’t tell you Amy…” began Leela, putting a finger to Amy’s lips as she started to protest, “So I’ll show you,”
In a single swift movement Leela removed her finger and kissed Amy. Amy tensed in shock and surprise before relaxing under Leela’s warm lips, enjoying the sensation they brought while it lasted. The kiss was different to any Amy had ever experienced before, which was defiantly saying something, it was soft and gently, it would have been innocent if not for the underlying passion.

Then it was gone, as Leela suddenly pulled back.
“I’m a lesbian Amy, and I think I love you,” whispered Leela, watching Amy’s blissfully stunned face for a reaction. It took a few minutes for the words to sink in, and when they did Amy’s face became serious.
“Are you sure Leela?” asked Amy, not smiling nor frowning, instead keeping her face neutral as she looked at Leela’s terrified face, know how hard it must have been for Leela to admit her secret, and to answer Amy’s question.
“I’m sure Amy; I’ve never felt like this before. It came so suddenly to me yet so strongly, I’m in love with you,” said Leela quietly, but certainly. Amy took a moment to consider, and for a second Leela honestly believed that Amy was going to turn away. She didn’t, instead she slipped her arms around Leela’s neck and pressed her lips to Leela’s in a chaste kiss.
“Then I love you too,” Amy murmured into Leela’s ear, so close that Leela could feel the heat of Amy’s breath. Leela pulled back to examine Amy’s flushed face.
“Are you sure Amy?”
“Yes, I wasn’t until last night but I am now,”
“Good,” replied Leela, letting Amy pull her in for another quick kiss. As their lips met, there came an anguished scream from behind them. They broke apart and turned to face the screamer, a familiar red haired man. Amy’s hand flew to her bruised lips and Leela swore violently.
“Shit! Talk about bad timing,” she cursed. Amy and Fry looked at her ludicrously.
“This is why you wouldn’t date me! You’re a lesbian with Amy!”
“Yes! No! I mean I…” stammered Leela.
“Which is it?!” demanded Fry.
“Both, I’m a lesbian but I wasn’t with Amy until this morning,” explained Leela, desperate for Fry to understand, “I didn’t want you to find out this way Fry, I swear!”
“How did you want me to find out?!” yelled Fry angrily, “After I made a fool of myself in front of hundreds of people? Oh wait a minute, I’ve already done that!”
“I’m sorry! I tried telling you to leave me alone but you wouldn’t listen!”
“You never said you were a lesbian!”
“I shouldn’t have had too! Damn it Fry, if you cared about me so much you would have left me alone when I asked you to instead of acting stupid!”
“Fine, I’ll leave you alone! I hope you and Amy are happy together! Happy?!”
“No Fry! I want to be your friend, can’t you understand that concept?”
“Obviously I’m too STUPID!”
“For god’s sake Fry, grow up! I’m a lesbian, I’m with Amy and I don’t want to go out with you, so deal with it and then we can still be friends. Until then I don’t want to know,”
“What!”
“Come on Amy,” said Leela, taking Amy’s hand and leading her inside the Planet Express building, closely followed by a very disgruntled Fry.

Liking it! (even if I missed the closet joke  roll eyes ) I really like how you are portraying Amy, giving her some depth...  love

I do hope Fry doesn't spend too much time being angry and sulky though   hmpf

Set ye Zapp in the forefront of the hottest battle, and retire ye from him, that he may be smitten and die.

Glad you like it  big grin, I've always thought Amy was portrayed to shallowly so I thought it'd be nice to change that.

Don't worry, I don't intend to let Fry sulk,  so expect some laughs  wink

You, ma'am, are a wonderful author of amazing stories.  smile

I have tried to write an Amy/Leela story, a few years ago, but it did not turn out as nice as this one. Well, mostly because back then I lacked of enough English vocabulary to express what I easily could write in German.

But, what I am about to say is: Yay! Write more!

Well, you made a girl/girl romance sweet and emotional enough that I haven't started hooting and leering obnoxiously. That's quite an accomplisment.
