Gotham High 1Morning, the sun was just starting to shine on Wayne manor, it's rays barely lighting up a messy room filled with crumpled papers of schematics and calculations, clothes thrown all over the place including the bed where a young man with dark hair was sleeping. The door opened and an elderly man dressed in a neat suit walked in with a tray. He took one look at the room and frowned then walked over to the table and placed the tray on an empty corner then went to the window and threw the curtains open, waking up the teenager in an instant who groaned and turned his back on the sun.Gotham High 14 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
"Rise and shine, young master," the old man said going back to get the tray.
"The sun is rising and shining enough for the both of us," the boy moaned.
"Come, come now, Master Bruce. You can't be late for your first day of high school now can you?"
"Oh right that was today " Bruce said sitting up.
"Yes, it was indeed today the day we discussed you would return to public school," the man said placing

"Why did I let Zatanna talk me into this...."
Bruce Wayne walked into the room. "Going to Easter mass, Joseph?"
"Oh, look; you trying to be funny." Joseph sighed, "Zatanna wants me to walk with her in the Easter Parade Promenade in Robinson Park. I'm torn, we've been dating for a few months so it should be something we should do; be officially seen as a couple. On the other...I'm Jewish! Easter, for me, should be trying to find something on TV that doesn't make me reach for a matzah. That is truly the bread of affliction; it's an affliction to eat it." Joseph looked up at Bruce, "Speaking of which, thanks for holding the seder for another year."
"Well, it's good to learn about other cultures. Now I should get ready myself."
"Who's the lucky lady this year?"

As soon as he could get away from the old man that pulled him away from the fight, Bruce ran to his car and grabbed the bag he kept his gear in and rushed to change. Meanwhile, Waylon was battling two large plants that were putting up a good fight while Pamela stayed safely back, holding a small plant in her hand, hidden inside her purse.
Being taller than him, the two plants had an easy job of keeping him at bay, attacking and retreating, but other than keeping the large teenager at bay, there was not much else they could do against the raging mutant.
"This is how you treat me after all we've been through?" he asked and knocked one of the plants out of the ground.
"All we've been through? Do you listen to yourself? All you care about was that I gorgeous, you didn't care about anything I was interested in! At least Bruce takes an interest in me beyond my looks!"
"What's wrong with likin' you for your looks? You show'm off plenty."

It was the second body in two days.
Halloween was only a few days away. This was always a hectic time of year... the police were already running pretty thin...
Murder, unfortunately, was not an unusual occurrence in Gotham City. What with all the super villains running around town, along with the everyday criminals. But every once in a while, one of these cases show up...
A serial killer was on the loose.
This was the second body.
The two bodies shared nothing in common in the way they died. The last body had been burned to a crisp, while they were still alive. The body that lay before Kimberly Cross, however was completely intact.
The people murdered were completely different as well. The body they'd found yesterday, they discovered after checking her dentals, was a young woman named Holly Shore. The body in front of Kim was not an young, attractive woman, but a middle aged, overweight man.
Despite this, the bodies did share something in common; a mask.

He grabbed his bag and rushed to the gym to put it on, wondering if he was not exaggerating a bit by changing into his alter ego. After all, it could have been a simple practical joke.
Inside, Ivy had backed away until she reached the tables but when the figure came out of the smoke it turned out to be Wayde.
"You look pretty, Pammy doll," he said with a wide toothy grin.
"You look like something that crawled out of a sewer. Is this your doing?" she asked waving at the smoke.

"Payback, but I'll settle for a dance instead," he answered walking closer until a tray of food smashed against his head.

For one week Alfred did make Bruce stay in the house at the very least, if not in bed as much as possible, which left him with little to do other than work on his suit and gadgets with his cousin assisting him. Though not particularly handy with making them, with his help, Bruce managed to finish a few of them sooner than expected.
"You know, you're like a superhero," Ricky said on the sixth day of Bruce's confinement as he was trying on his suit along with his improved belt filled with small pockets, each with a small but handy piece of equipment.
"I wouldn't call myself that though some of my friends referred to Batman as a vigilante."

Dr Strange was right, he had to face his fear. Wearing a full gear, even though it was a bit loose for him and he had to adjust it carefully, Bruce tied the rope to a tree then went to the old well on the estate. The light did not penetrate more than a few feet inside but he still climbed on the edge then slowly lowered himself in. After a while he had to turn on the flashlight attached to his helmet to see, every little sound seemed amplified in the dark, damp tunnel. In less than ten minutes he reached the bottom, ending up in part of a cave complex. He was a bit nervous and kept looking from left to right but because of the flashlight he disturbed an entire colony of bats that flew off the walls and surrounded him, turning into a flurry of black, leathery shapes. Bruce's first instinct was to duck but he tripped on the rope and fell, his helmet went flying into a rock, the flashlight breaking on impact. He was left alone in the dark but slowly he noticed there was light after all,

In the Isley green house, Pamela was going berserk, trashing anything that was not a plant in her way in a furious rage. She had not even taken off her dress.
"My perfect night with Bruce was ruined we could have had our first kiss if it weren't for that Waylon!" she yelled then her eyes fell on the vial of green fluid she had been experimenting with.
Straightening up she walked over to the table and picked up the vial with the green fluid. Before she could do anything with it, the plants she had animated moved as close to her as possible, seemingly urging her against doing anything rash.
"It's alright, my lovelies. I've always wanted to be more like you and this will help me get back on that bastard for ruining my night."
Taking a deep breath, she put the vial to her mouth and drank it all in one gulp. She waited but nothing happened then looked at the vial again. Suddenly, a sharp pain hit her and she fell to the ground holding her stomach.

On top of the bed,
And I lean over
To kiss your head.
You look up and smile
And you tell me no,
I must wait
Just a little while
So I sit there and think
With my arm around you,
As you look up and blink
I smell your perfume.
Each time I smell it
It's like the worlds set in stone,
And every time you laugh
You make my heart roam.
I want to kiss you
In a sensitive way,
So I kneel down before you
Then I grab you and sway.
I put my hands on your waist
Then lift you up,
And I place my lips onto your lovely
And most delicate face.

Late evening, the police were taking photos of a crime scene inside a museum, by a display case with an engraved sign that read: 'Cat's Eye Jewel'. Detective Gordon was interviewing one of the night guards when he noticed a shadow in the room move.
"Thank you, that will be all," he told the guard. "Alright, get everything back to the station and have it analyzed," he added and the forensics gathered their tools and whatever evidence they found and left. "You're him, aren't you?" the detective spoke to the seemingly empty room once everyone was gone.
"Glad you're willing to hear me out," Batman replied stepping out of the shadows.
"Right now that's all I'm willing to do unless you give me a good reason not to handcuff you and bring you in for questioning."
"You'd never catch me."
"If not for all the good you do, I'd be tempted to take you up on that… branching out from tying up school bullies and purse snatchers?"

Joseph Kane awoke to a ringing headache in a cavernous chamber, a lot like a church. In fact it was very like a medieval church, with the creepiest stone statues and stained glass you'd ever see. Horrific scenes of torture and damnation, figures of lecherous couples and doomed individuals. And right in front of him, above a pair of mighty oak doors, stood a stone wheel. Around the figure of the wheel were allegorical figures of sin and virtue, pleasure and wisdom, war and peace, life and death. In the center of the wheel stood the stone figure of a woman in a crown and robes; half her face a beautiful young woman; the other a skull. Supporting the wheel were the figures of an angel on top, and a devil on the bottom. A control wheel made of wood and steel stood in front of it.
This is like a church Two-Face would love! Even has his favorite idea: fate. Joseph felt dried blood on his face, his clothes were torn and messed up. He remembered being attacked, chaos,

A particular kind of shizu (石竹) that grows exclusively around Shuzhou is said to line the road to hell. A long time ago, it had been the flower of hope and safe return, and was given to those going into dangerous situations, such as traders and soldiers, with the belief that the flowers would bring them home safe. Because no flower can aid a man in times of peril, the white-lipped shizu soon became associated with those sent off to die.
One branch of the Cao family was long in decline. This particular line had its origins with one of Cao Jie's sons, Cao Jing. When Cao Jie's fourth son, the eunuch Cao Teng, achieved favor within the imperial court as a eunuch, his older brother Cao Jing reaped the benefits and used his newfound connections in order to chase profits in the copper mines. Leaving the family land, he moved to Shuzhou and fraudulently used both his brother's name and money in order to purchase some hilly land that was said to contain large copper deposits. Howe
