Arrows rained down by the hundreds. It did not take long for Artemis to rally her Amazon sisters and take a full frontal assault against their attackers. By the hundreds, fully armored men stormed the shores of Themyscira. They wore battle armor similar to the Amazons and seemed to have the same kind of warrior's fire the Themysciran women had as well.
"Amazons!" Artemis shouted over the noise of rushing war. "Attack!" she commanded with her sword pointed towards the enemy. She pulled on the golden reins of the Pegasus and flew directly towards the heart of the enemy's swarm. With a great swipe of her blade Artemis took the heads of four of the male warriors clear off.
A wave of angry women followed her down her path with their swords raised. By the hundreds the Amazons stormed into battle. But this was not an epic battle like David versus Goliath. This was a war of the century! While one man would fall on the battle grounds, he took with him two Amazons.
These Warriors's training was

For a glorious twenty years he ruled over his Amazon sisters preaching peace and love. He even opened the borders of Paradise Island to the rest of Man's world. The perfect utopia was available for all to enjoy, but now, Themyscira was under attack on the very shores that were once closed to the feet of man.
"Themyscira will not fall while I am King!" Tristan promised. While his powers were almost nonexistent he was still a deadly warrior who should not be trifled with.
He was surrounded by his Amazon council, they were his inner circle. These were not only the fiercest of the Amazons, but also thd smartest and most experienced in combat. His three daughters were among them, the Princesses of Themyscira.
"Then we shall fight!" Artemis declared. Artemis had become Tristan's personal Champion when he chose to give up his powers. She fought for him and was willing to die in his honor. She raised her sword into the air. Every Amazon in the room joined her. They were al

So much to do. So much to consider.
Darkness had settled hours ago and the house was finally quiet. Though weary from a long day, Diana knew that sleep would be a difficult prize to claim, especially with everything in her mind that vied for her attention. She lay on her back, right in the middle of her spacious bed as she stared at the ceiling with troubled blue eyes. With one hand laying on her belly and the other arm curled around her head, she did her best to relax her body, hoping that her mind would soon follow. Her long black hair was pulled to one side and was flailed out on her pillow and bed. Her spacious bedroom was dimly lit in the warm blue glow offered by the full moon. There were not many furnishings, only the bed, desk across the room under the window and a wardrobe that was made of some dark wood. Two other pieces had joined the

The lights were low in the central control room of the Watchtower and when the doors slid shut behind Wonder Woman she did not stray more than a step or two from them as her eyes found that one lonely figure sitting at the main console. A familiar creeping began in her stomach and she drew a calming breath. She feared almost nothing, but this was a conversation she had hidden from for almost two decades. Finally striding forward, her steps were as confident as she could manage and she was able to control the shaking of her knees very well. It was not a long walk, but it sure seemed to take forever.
Finally reaching the occupied chair, she grasped it with one hand, the console with the other as she looked to the large view screen that was right in front of the man who worked the controls. Silence thickened the air around them and the tension mounted.
"Quiet night?" she finally fo

Eventually finding him unconscious, bleeding from his head, somewhat severely, drifted upon seaweed and dirt. She lifted him up and flew to where the other men and now cops were.
COP1: Thank you, Hawk Girl, Martian Man-hunter filled us in on what's been happening.
HG: Good, the Cargo is over there. The Justice League can dispose of it for you, properly if you wish.
COP 2: There's no need, but thank you.
Lex grumbles, eventually vocalizes
LEX: You'll all have plenty to dispose of, once the 3rd ship makes intermission, positioned correctly, the cargo can reach here and destroy every living organism around it! Only a few are immune, and those will dispose many of your dead carcasses!

The next morning was a day of celebration throughout Themyscira. Much pomp and circumstance was made for this tournament as they rarely happen, and for such a cause to go to man's world. At the great Coliseum the stands were filled as nearly every Amazon on the Island attended. If one noticeable Amazon was missing, it was Princess Diana as her seat next to her mother's was empty. The 16 contestants stood in the center all standing in 4 rows. The queen stood in her perch and announced.
"If you are all ready, then let the Tournament begin. There will be four challengers to choose the winners. The runner up will take the female survivor to her true love, while the winner will return the male to America. As you know only the runner up shall return to Paradise Island, but the Gods demand that only the Strongest, wisest, and best of you sisters be honored with this self-sacrificing task, and may the best maiden win."
With that the festivities began with a cross island race that ended back in

Distraught by her mother's wishes for her not to be with Captain Trevor, she returned to the Hospital to see Lieutenant Prince who had come around. Although sedated, she was quite lucid. They had told her where she is and that she had not much time left. Her injuries were beyond anything they could do, and her life lies in the hands of the gods. Diana came to her a bit melancholy yet was passionate about the young woman's plight.
Diana sees her enter with some fresh linen for her bed. "You Amazons are much too kind to waste your time on me." she says in a weak voice.
"Nonsense, you are a true warrior and deserve the best of care." replies the Princess.
The Lieutenant smirked as she looked to her. "Warrior...sad fact I am a warrior on her last mission. I was going to return Captain Trevor and the information and retire from the military."
The Princess seemed concerned hearing this. "But you are a hero among your people."
She smirked again, "There will be no parades for me...no schools n

Where were you when our hearts divided?
You said we’d always be united!
You were my breath into my mouth
The name I use to shout
But in your eyes is blood
Your sins over-flood
I struggle just to breathe
My skin tears beneath your teeth
I am your everlasting victim
Your DNA runs throughout my system
My body is completely yours
But this is what I endure
You’re the enigma in my life
Continuing to thrust the knife
I am dying with apathy eyes
I’ve been filled with filthy lies
For I am your entity
Your incessant chemistry
Bound by the lies in your veins
My existence is trapped in chains
But to you…I am your light
I’m what makes your heart ignite
I’m the antidote to your innocence
I am your very synthesis
You’re in forever stagnation
And I’m your only salvation
Trapped by innocent, trapped by pain
Trapped by torture you can’t sustain
We are a unity, we are one
The only something you can’t outrun
I am you and you are me

The phenomenon was paradoxical, in a sense. He was on the qui vive as he made his way down the apparently vacant street, with his eyes snapping at every indication of movement, with fingers delving deeper into his pants pockets, with lips curling, teeth nibbling at available skin. Yet, he felt no fear, for internally, he was rather sanguine; the outward, cowardly nebbish he presented to incoming strangers was false, and rightly so (the behavior coincidentally mimicked Jervis Tetch; he made no motion to acknowledge the impulsive correlation). How on earth could he let himself become paralyzed by the intimidation of others?

"Yes. I tracked him here, and now I intend to take him back."

From what you could tell, The time travel device had worked. After it was activated, it only took a few moments before you were transported to... somewhere. You didn't know exactly where. Seeing as how the device didn't seem to have the ability to specify a specific location, it was anyones guess as to where you, Loki and Thor ended up. You looked around a bit, and you automatically knew that something went wrong. The three of you were standing in a small alleyway of what looked to be an old town. It looked like one of those cliche towns that you see in western movies.
You looked up at Thor with an angered expression and then began to yell at him. "You Nitwit! What the hell did you do?! We were sent back to far!" You didn't even let Thor get a word in edge-wise. You looked at the time travel device that he was still holding. "Gimme that!"

Loki knew something was wrong the instant he stepped out of his bedroom. It was quiet. Normally the morning air would be laced with chatter from the kitchen and clinking of mugs, and the (almost daily) crash of plates that Thor broke with his strength.
Everyone looked at him when he entered. Loki's big smile slowly faded as he grew uncomfortable under the stares.
"Whatever it is," Loki quickly said, "I swear I didn't do it."
Tony gave a small watery smile. "Nah, it's nothing." Loki had seen enough of Tony's normal smiles to know this one was a far, far cry from genuine. "Loki, after breakfast, can you follow Bruce to the lab? He needs your help with some research."
"Okay," Loki said carefully. He studied the Avengers' faces closely, trying to figure out what was wrong. It had something to do with him, he was sure of it.
"So," Bruce said, trying to distract Loki as he took a blood sample. Loki flinched violently when the needle went in. "I heard you had nightmares the other night."

Natasha almost laughed out loud. "That," she pointed at the'女', "means female. This means male." She gestured at the next door marked 男.

Loki stared at the signs on the door. He and Clint may be on good terms now, but he still remembered, too vividly, the morning he woke in Clint's bathroom. His mind gears whirled furiously as he smiled to himself.
There was nothing more satisfying than giving others a taste of their own medicine.
