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.

We got to capture him before that happens. I ran after my blonde companion, towards the black-haired ex of mine. Sasuke looked frankly around as we came closer, his teeth sparkling. His uncovered hands began to turn red and smoke came from them.

The 2026UB313 meteor was distracted from its original target, the earth, to hit Mars in a massive explosion. The meteor was spotted in the year 2026 and hence the name. Its trajectory had alarmed the scientists as it was in collision norms with the Earth. The calculated impact time was 10 years.

I sighed as I sipped my drink, barely paying attention to my surroundings as nothing that was going on around me caught my attention. It was all background really, and nothing worth looking away from my drink for.. My tail slithered and coiled around the stool as I minded my own business, the weights felt barely palpable, as if there was nothing there at all. Maybe this wasn't gonna be a problem after all. I kept minding my business until I heard a voice, a girl asking me "Are you a TG too?" My whiskers twitched as I glanced right, only to see a tigress with a beer in her hand, she seemed somewhat depressed as her ears laid hidden on her orange hair.
Ever since I've gotten this body I managed to learn how to detect emotions through subtle actions such ears falling down or standing up top, the swishing or limpness of the tail.

When I reached Selina's apartment with my things, I parked my car in the alleyway; knowing full well that it was illegal, but not caring one bit.
I climbed up the stairwell to the top floor and dropped my suitcase in front of the last door on the right side of the hallway, and rapped three times on the door. Despite the early hour I heard the familiar squeak of the floorboards as Selina came to inspect the peephole. I heard a small intake of breath and a the click of the door unlocking.
When the door swung open I saw Selina... with a drastic haircut.
Disregarding the sudden lack of hair atop Selina's head, I rushed myself into her arms and began to cry... not trying so desperately to hold it all together, as I had earlier.
Whilst in her arms I kicked off my heels into her apartment, quickly resolving to change into my pair of white Chuck Taylor's as soon as possible.

Nothing set her apart from the hundreds on hundreds of other figures sitting in that crowded room, grey and still, clad in clothes deteriorated to hints of ancient splendor in all that room only the gold shone unmuted beneath a fine breading of dust.

The three of them remained silent for a while, considering their own train of thoughts. Batman found the urge to explain everything and clear his side, but he realised he would have to do that compromise and explain all through his life if he started it. That was something his ego would prevent him from doing. Revealing his true self to Lisa was an option he wanted to consider only as a last resort. But he certainly owed the lady an apology.
He finally broke the silence.
"That explains why he wanted to jump off the cliff - " he mused.
"Jump off the cliff?" the other two uttered in astonishment.

TW: Rape, Discussion about Rape, etc.
I know some of you guys aren't aware of this, but it is not okay to write any fanfiction where someone is a rapist, is being raped, or anything like that. Rape is a very very very sensitive topic, and it is never okay to write a fanfiction about it that glorifies it and makes it out less of a horrible thing than it really is. I've seen this used in many a fanfiction and its upsetting to see good characters turned into monsters by fanfiction writers. (notable examples of these characters include: France from Hetalia, and Cronus from Homestuck) Now before you say things like: "but it's just a fanfiction!" "it's not real!" "it's not hurting anyone!" "but [insert character here] is a rapist so it's okay!"
PLEASE LISTEN: None of these are valid excuses, or likely true in the slightest. There is NEVER an excuse for writing about rape in this way. Rape is a horrible horrible crime tha

He wished he could take back those expressions. But it was too late. It was his turn to respond, and he knew that he had to. He shook his head impatiently, as if to drive away the thoughts impinging upon his mind.
