Notes: (1) Always buy large skeins on wig construction, especially 1-or-2 toned wigs
(2) 2 Medium skeins will cover leg and arm warmer needs (color variations vary the amount used)
(3) Tail belts should never be more than 3 shades, and always wide enough to fit over your hips (its easier just to slip them n using a double knot than tying them every time and worrying that they'll slip off)
(4) Yarn left over from wig and warmer construction can be used to make the tail belt and shoulder fluff
(5) If 'Prom' gloves aren't handy, 'princess' dress up gloves from children's play sets can be used, or (if you have the skill), one can be made from an old knee sock or a stretchy shirt.
(6) $ 50 = unitard
$ 16-30 = 6-12 Skeins of yarn (dependent on color and character)
$ 6-10 = wig base
$ 17-30 = shoes (Jazz or Gymnastic,)

He grabbed her neck with his left hand just tight enough to hear her gasping for air as the blade of the butterfly knife held in his right gently caressed the corner of her mouth. He smiled at her, his yellowed teeth barely showing under his crimson lips.
My dear Harley, he said in a sickly-sweet voice filled with his menacing affection for the blonde, I can see the smile on your face, but the world cant. Isnt that sad? Harley did her best to nod, her eyes holding a speck of fear hidden within the eager-to-please look a happy Golden Retriever would give its master. The Joker chuckled quietly, amused at seeing the slightest hint of fear in his one-time doctor who was so deeply devoted to him.

Lord, how his nerves were shot. Jonathan Crane stood on the doorstep of Jervis Tetch's current house, as he had been for the past ten minutes, simply staring at the threshold with discouraged eyes, wringing his hands together nervously.
He heaved a tired sigh as he turned to leave again. He hadn't taken more than three steps before he came to a stop, frustrated and embarrassed by his own cowardice. 'It's just Jervis, for Christ's sake!' he scolded himself internally. He turned back around, giving the threshold an offended and angry look. He marched to the doorstep with new purpose, but with each step forward, his confidence dissolved. He found himself staring at the door again.
With a disgruntled growl, he ran a hand through his auburn hair. He rubbed the back of his stiff neck with a thin hand. He hadn't slept a wink the night before. Instead, he

He sighed as the man continued to speak heatedly in his ear. He placed his pen back on the desk and leaned back in his cushioned chair. He removed his glasses, placing them in the collar of his shirt and began to massage his temple.
"No," he drew out, "I wouldn't presume to tell you how to teach your class, but I'm certain that a day or two of moving on then touching back on the phobias wouldn't harm their intellectual process. In fact, it'd be a lovely review on the particular subject since this unit is based around classical conditioning and phobias and other fears are usually taught through this method." His expression fell to completely unenthused.

Jonathan Crane looked up for a moment from the various chemicals he had scattered across the counter of his workspace and glanced over his thin shoulders at the sofa beyond the doorway. He was mildly surprised when he saw the familiar sandy-colored hair peeking around the back of the sofa. More than that, however, he was a bit irked. Jervis Tetch was showing a remarkable amount of patience today When the Mad Hatter had arrived three hours ago, Crane instantly tried to shoo him away. The stubbornness between the two was to be admired, considering how unstable they were. After a great deal of failed attempts to rid himself of the tea-loving man, Crane apparently gave in.

As she walked into the asylum, she immediately had butterflies. She was finally going to meet him. She hadnt been chosen first for the task, or second for that matter, but the others had apparently failed and she was next in line. Even so, she was still excited in a professional way, of course.
She signed in at the front desk and after showing the appropriate paperwork was escorted by a guard into the patient hall. As she followed the guard down the long, narrow hall she wondered which one was his. She could hear many pained and afflicted cries resonating around her from the rooms she passed; could one of them possibly be his? To her surprise, however, the guard led her through the door at the end into yet another hall.

How, as a boy, curled up in bed...
I'd, peeking in, see just his head.

I'd stand in silence...just a moment.
When he told me he would marry,
And when he joined the military...
So quickly, go from boys to men

The way the light would fill his face,
On furloughs from...that other place.
He's on my couch, away from violence,
I'd stare...just a moment...of silence.
I knew what he was fighting for.
The reasons he walked out the door.
It filled me up with so much pride...
My silent moment, could not hide.

In THAT moment fell my son...

The Fall OutStirred from the sound of rain, I sleepily raise my headThe Fall Out4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
to be greeted by the sultry pink dawn seeking me--
the first sign of sunlight in three days,
Or has it been more?
Yet, the storm that woke me brews in the next room.
The unsteady splashing against the floor tiles somehow
clashes nicely with the morning birds and traffic below.
I imagine him: vulnerable and naked,
intentionally away from me.
I roll over turning from the welcoming light of morning
facing a dim walled room as I close my eyes attempting
to remain asleep looking--
Anything to avoid our averted eyes.
These moments pass painfully slow,
more so than the throbbing in my head.
I yank the comforter over me in spite of the warm may weather.
At last, the shower ceases.
I hear the fumble of a belt buckle and feel the light from the bathroom
wash over my eyelids
as he enters our room, hesitantly.
My breathing is shallow and wavering as
I feel knots in my stomach uncomfortably tighten.
I wish I were truly asleep.

There is a realm which lives in constant fear of an evil dragon that lives on its outskirts. The dragon is not only evil, but also pretty much all-powerful, so you don't want to cross it...ever. Because of the dragon's influence over the realm, the kingdom's main religion is "dragonism", also known as the Draconic faith. In general, though, the dragon leaves the kingdom in peace, with one small exception. He demands that a young girl be brought to his cave, for him to keep as his prisoner. That girl is forced to sing and dance for him, until she starves to death or collapses from exhaustion. A new "Dragon Diva" is selected whenever one dies. This is pretty much the only thing the dragon demands of the kingdom, so in general, the country's people are more than happy to get the heck out of his way when he's choosing his next victim, or even openly help him, if it means that he'll refrain from wreaking any other kind of havoc on their realm.

One night in Gotham City, Chess was walking home with her boyfriend Tavern. They had just finished a fund raiser in the theatre that they had planned on saving. It wasn't enough to save the place, but enough to prove that they could raise the money to save it. She was walking tonight because one, it was nice out, and two, ever since her meeting with Batman and Robin, she figured that she could end up meeting them again. Tavern, being the caring, protective boyfriend that he is, was walking with her because he knew how dangerous Gotham could be, especially at night.
A few minutes into the walk, Tavern snuck a kiss on Chess' cheek. She giggled and pushed slightly. "Tavern! You sly dog you!"
He laughed and wrapped an arm around her waist. "That's me, sneaking a kiss when my girlfriend least expects it." And he prove the point by kissing her again on the cheek, regardless that she was expecting it that time.
The two continued to walk and laughed. Then all of a sudden Tavern stoppe

Well, darling, let me tell you a story,
A story all too true.
A daughter who became a wife, a wife who became a mother.
A mother of three girls...
One just above the age of a toddler,
One at the age of twelve,
And one entering the life of a married adult.
Now, the youngest girl was watching television,
And the oldest at the neighbor's home.
The twelve year old daughter sat at a computer with her closest friend,
When something terrifying happened.
Her mother was in the kitchen, coughing.
The daughter, although unable to see her mother, only could imagine the situation.
The mother walked calmly past the daughter with tears rushing down her face,
And up the stairs she went,
Into her bedroom...
Locking the door behind her.
The daughter, hearing the door lock, didn't bother to check on her mother.
She decided to expect and hope for the best.

Rani had stayed late one night at school. She and her new club were doing something for a school play that was going to perform in the next month or so. They were pretty much making costumes, painting backgrounds and mostly goof around with friends. Even though they did goof off a bit more than they should have, they actually got a lot done.
Now she needed to leave. She needed to report to Mount Justice and the team to see if there was anything going down somewhere in the world. She had adopted the name Uccello, which was Italian for bird, and suited up. She wore a blue tunic with matching pants, a white belt around her waist, white boots and a white cape with her hood up. She wore a mask that was like Robin's except it was blue. She was about to go into the entrance in Gotham, which was a seemingly abandoned old phone booth, until something caught her eye. Something red.

When no one could see Robin, there was always something devious planned. They searched the cave twice before finally finding the two on the couch watching TV. Artemis had checked the place a few minutes ago and there was no one there previously. The team, except for the adult heroes who were still on patrol, showed up and confronted them.
"Where have you two been?" M'gann asked.
"What are you talking about?" Robin remarked.
"We've been here the whole time." Rani added.

"Maybe you weren't paying attention enough." Robin chuckled giving everyone his innocent smile. That's when everyone knew something went down. They were about to ask when the adult Heroes came in. Then everyone stood there in shock.
