Fiona and Imogen became friends in Season 11 through their mutual friend, Eli. After crushing on Imogen throughout the second half of season 11, Fiona finally worked up the courage to tell Imogen how she felt about her at Degrassi's Winter Frostival. As it turned out, Imogen had been harboring a secret crush on Fiona as well. Up until this point, Imogen had presumably only been interested in boys, and was both puzzled and excited about her feelings for Fiona. She and Fiona agreed to pursue a relationship right before winter break.
After the holidays, however, Imogen seemed apprehensive about their relationship status, as Fiona was all too eager to refer to Imogen as her "girlfriend", and announce that she was a lesbian to anybody who asked. Imogen told Fiona that a relationship with another girl was unfamiliar to her, and that she needed time to get used to the idea. Fiona agreed not to rush thigns their relationship. Eventually, Imogen became comfortable with referring to Fiona as her girlfriend, and even told her that she loved her. However, shortly before the end of season 12, it was revealed that Imogen would not be graduating with Fiona, and would be held back, repeating her senior year at Degrassi.
Around this time, Fiona's mother returned to Toronto to tell Fiona that their family's previously frozen assets were unfrozen. In addition, Fiona was being considered for a job with a famous fashion designer in Italy. These developments put a strain on the girls' relationship. Still, after graduation, Fiona seemed hopeful to maintain her relationship with Imogen. Imogen, however, stated that she did not want to hold Fiona back from pursuing her dreams. The girls peacefully, but sadly, decided to break up and parted ways with a final kiss.

Eager to become friends with the most popular girls in Grade 12, Fiona offers to host a senior party to kick off the new school year. Fiona runs into Eli and Imogen in the hallway after class, and mentions her party. Eli jokingly asks whether his invite got lost in the mail. Fiona tells Eli that she did not think he would be interested in coming. Eli says he isn't, but says that Imogen may be interested. Fiona awkwardly tells Imogen that the party is really more of a "small get together," but invites her out of pity. Imogen tells Fiona how happy the invitation has made her, especially since most of the girls at Degrassi are so cruel to her. Fiona talks to her about her own problems fitting in, and how they led to her alcoholism. Fiona then suggests that Imogen come over to her condo a few hours before the party, so that she can help her get ready. While talking to Marisol and Katie later in the hallway, Fiona tells them that she invited Imogen to the party. Katie and Marisol are surprised, but Fiona encourages them to give Imogen a chance. As Fiona is getting her condo ready for the party, Imogen comes over in a very unusual outfit. Fiona, worried that Imogen will embarrass her suggests that she change into one of her dresses. Imogen is aware that Fiona is worried about being embarrassed by her, and tells her so. She also mentions that she doesn't care what others think of her. Fiona tells Imogen that if she were a little more concerned about what others think of her, the girls could all become friends. Imogen gives in and changes into a more glamorous outfit. At the party, Imogen suggests they all play charades. Marisol makes fun of the idea, but Fiona covers it up as a joke. She suggests Truth or Dare instead.
