The Battle for Themyscira 2The Battle for Themyscira 25 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
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.

For once, nothing apocalyptic was happening in outer space, and on earth. Sure there were some fires that needed putting out and kittens to be rescued from a tree, but they were easy to handle. Most of the members of the Justice League were at the Watchtower, mingling with each other, chatting as they walked through the hallways, and of course the uncontrolled lovemaking in their respective chambers.
Shayera made her way to the cafeteria, where a lot of members were having their lunch. After taking a can of soda, some pasta and a few side dishes from their cafeteria lady, she spotted Clark sitting alone, having his lunch quietly after a very tiring deep space mission that went on for three days. He was having his lunch quietly while staring at the Dark Knight who was on the other side of the room, also having lunch.
"So," Shayera sat down beside Clark, who obviously was a bit startled by her sudden intrusion to his daydreaming. "When are you gonna tell him?" she stabbed a p

Do you know what it's like to feel constantly on edge?
That even when you're happy and content,
the slightest thing may send you into a spiral of worry and doubt?
When things that may seem insignificant to others,
Or only mildly problematic, can cause you to panic?
Do you know what it's like to yearn for reassurance, or comfort
to need someone to just accept how you feel and help you work
through it without judging?
To sometimes be reluctant to seek that help, because you fear
the few people you can confide in may eventually get
annoyed with you if you go to them too often
Do you know what it's like to have to endure it alone?
Sometimes my thoughts get stuck in a loop of what's worrying me
and other thoughts or concerns find it hard to break through
To be worried to distraction, unable to keep still
to be tiered yet unable to sleep?
Did you know you can literally get worried sick?

Our celestial neighbor, the red planet, Mars goes mad.
Not its fault
Rewind 20 yrs:
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.
Ever since the 2012 doomsday was successfully averted, the space had grown hostile towards the earth. As many as 100 meteorite crashes were reported in 2yrs. Our sun showered more cosmic radiation than ever through the depleting Ozone layer. As fixing these became the top priority, no one paid attention to the 2300 km wide rock hiding in the Jupiter's shadow. And by the time the spectral analysis confirming a moving object was taken seriously, it was almost too late. There was not time to check the composition of the meteor, without which blowing it up was not practical. The onl

A star-adorned tiara plopped onto Twilight Sparkle's bed.
It all looked to so good in my head! The actual outfit even looked good! At least to me... but I'm no designer, am I?
Two oversized, star-plastered sets of earrings and bows followed.
And the whole time, I pushed her to make it. Constantly correcting her over the most minor of details, forcing her to abandon her design sensibilities, and being ungrateful about a dress that she had offered to make me for free!
That dress, cluttered with animal and constellation designs, joined her jewelry on the bed with a soft ploomf. Twilight looked at the ensemble, only now finally able to see it for the trainwreck it was.
Whew. Back to some semblance of sanity. But the damage is already done. It's my fault. I asked for this, and I got exactly what I wanted... at the expense of a good friend's image. Maybe even her career. I'm the absolute worst.

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.
"What do you know about him?" he could say, finally.

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.
