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.

Most of the structures on Themyscira were ancient Greek style in construction, as their culture was largely ancient Greek in makeup, and built of marble or limestone for the most part. A training center near the middle of the island was one of the largest. Like most structures, it had a walled open courtyard all the way around it, four entrances into the structure itself, and large marble columns that held up the stone roof. The inside of the perimeter wall was adorned with gardens with a track of clean sand right inside of the gardens that measured over three miles around the building, and inside of these were the training fields for this facility, and they were all in heavy use this day. Four obstacle courses, one on each side of the huge, three level structure, were of varying degrees of difficulty for different kinds of training and were named for Greek Gods.
On the south side of the structure, a group of women had just finished

Anxiety surged up again and quickly she felt herself near panic as she looked around her. When she tried to sit up, a strap around her chest stopped her. Trying to raise her hands to remove it revealed that she was cuffed to the bed she lay on. Looking down at herself, she saw that she was only covered with a white sheet and white wool blanket, and over these were leather restraints over her legs and hips and she could feel her ankles cuffed and strapped down beneath the sheet.

"I didn't keep many secrets from your grandmother," Diana admitted, "but some things are much better left unsaid."
"That is just totally wicked," the girl said with a laugh.
"Just don't get any ideas," Diana warned. "I'm way ahead of you on that."
"I believe you, Mom. Hey! Maybe we can, like, go and do a Justice League mission or something. It would be all kinds of fun!"
With a little smile, Diana confirmed, "Sure, I'd like that. But not until I get you clearance, understand?"

Commissioner Gordon stood on the roof, his hands in the pockets of his overcoat as he stared up at the bat signal that shined brightly on the clouds above. With him were two uniformed police officers, both of whom watched the signal on the clouds as well. The spotlight that sent it there illuminated much of the roof surrounding it, but behind it and in the distance, all was shrouded in shadows, and everyone present knew that Batman would emerge from those shadows. The sounds of the blowing wind would mask the approach of the Dark Knight and tensions were high as the three awaited him.
A loud, mechanical click sounded from behind them and the spotlight went out, plunging much of the rooftop back into darkness. Only the two lights that flanked the one door that accessed the roof illuminated the roof to any degree. Even as the two policemen spun around, Gordon turned almost casually, looking to the shadowy figure who stood
BATMAN: LEGACYThe Bat Cave illuminated as the door slid open and Batman strode toward the car that was parked in the middle of the cavern, and right on his heels was Golden Angel, a girl about five foot six with long black hair that was restrained in a pony tail. She wore a combination of clothing and armor, a red top that left her right shoulder and her midriff bare, a golden raptor symbol across her chest that had the wings of a bat. She wore golden gauntlets on her forearms, and red and gold boots almost to her knees. The bottom piece of this costume was royal blue, low on her hips and left her legs almost completely bare, and it was adorned with white stars. On her brow she wore a golden tiara with a blue star in the center that was flanked by the black wings of a bat. This was a young heroine in training, and this day the lesson seemed to be an elusive one in patience.BATMAN: LEGACY4 years ago in Drama More Like This

Hermione was shivering violently. Her head felt as if it were about to explode. Suddenly a hand was pulling blankets up to her neck.
“Sit still child and rest”, Madame Pomfrey, the school nurse, murmured. “You have been through quite a lot and you need to stay warm.” Hermione nodded faintly and looked around the infirmary. She was the only one there besides the nurse, she realized as her eyes quickly scanned the room. She looked around so quickly that she barely noticed him. She did a double take to see Draco Malfoy standing in a corner of the room looking at her.
She looked back then brought her eyes back down, embarrassed as she recalled come of what had happened earlier. ‘He had been carrying me’, she realized, her face beginning to flush. ‘All the way from the other side of the school, but why is he still here.’ As if it

Once again the Great Hall was bustling with students. This time though it was for dinner. For the second time that day Hermione found it hard to concentrate on eating when her head was filled with so many other things. She was waiting for a certain Slytherin to get up from their table and leave so Hermione could hurry up and get this whole mess behind her. Thinking back on it Hermione wasn’t completely sure as to how Melanie had even known that Malfoy got up at a certain time every night and left dinner early. She wondered how Melanie had noticed and why she was paying attention. She made a mental note to ask her later.

It was summer. Hermione Granger had just gotten home from her sixth year of Hogwarts a week ago, and she was loving living as a muggle again. Now, don't get me wrong, she loved being a witch at Hogwarts. It was just that sometimes it was nice to not worry about bloodlines, and being nagged about being a muggle born. One down thing was that she always missed Harry and Ron dreadfully. It was now a Thursday, and Thursdays during the summer meant youth group. She hadn't gone last week because she had just gotten home and was settling in, but this week she was excited to be going again. Being around a bunch of muggles made her feel...normal. And bei

During the week, she had a lot of time to think about something else while she was on bed rest in the infirmary. She still was in shock at the fact that Malfoy had not only brought her here, but had also been nice to her. Especially after their mini-fight in the Slytherin Common Room. Hermione had felt bad that he thought she was that evil but didn’t have the courage to really do anything about it. After all, he had said he would rather be left alone.
Another thing that was still boggling Hermione’s plenty filled mind, was the fact tat he had not called her Granger. In all of their seven years at Hogwarts he had never called her anything different. In turn she had never called him anything but Malfoy either. She was trying to tell herself that it was no big deal and calling her by her first name is what tons of people do. But the truth was that for Malfoy to call her that, WAS a big deal.
