Twas the nap before Christmas, when all through the manner
Not a creature was stirring, not even Barry.
Our book bags were hung by the door with care
In hopes that St Nickolaus soon would be there.
The children were nestled all snug on our mats,
While maybe not Clark, he just floated above his mat.
And I with my lantern and Diana in her cap,
Had just settled down for our nightly nap.
When out on the roof there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from the mat to see what was the matter.
Away to the window I flew like the Flash,
I used my ring to whip open the sash
The rings light breast of the new-fallen snow
Gave the lustre of mid-day to objects below.
When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But a miniature bat plan, and my friend flying it neer.
With a little bat driver, so lively and swoose
I knew in a moment it must be St Bruce.
More rapid than eagles his coursers they came,
And he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name!
"Now Clark! now, John! now, Barry and Karen!

Rise of the Guardians – Modernized
A collaborated project
It has been said for every person out there in this world, there is another person out there made exactly for them. That is why sometimes when a couple is spoken of; one is referred to as the other half. Now it is not said where their other halves may be, but it is said that the two will one day cross paths and will realize they are destined to be together. And once that bond of love is formed the two halves will become one and will never break apart; no matter what the circumstances.

"Daddy, I just don't see what's wrong?"
Lian Harper, a young girl with black hair and Asian features, sat in her room, on her bed, as her father, Roy, a muscular red-head, sat next to her explaining the situation to her.
"Lian, Sooraya said you were firing a gun off in broad daylight. You don't see anything wrong with that?" Roy asked her.
"I was just practicing." Lian attempted to justify. She was expected to become his sidekick some day, and figured she needed to know how to use guns.
"You didn't even bother to use a muffler." Roy pointed out.
"I couldn't find one."
"That's besides the point."
"You brought it up." Lian pointed out herself. Roy grimaced. He had.
"ANYWAY, you know very well you aren't allowed to train with guns yet. You could have hurt, or even, God forbid, killed someone." Roy lectured. He remembered what it was like growing up without a mom, and a dad. The closet thing he had was his mentor, Ollie Queen. Maybe that was why he was so

“So let me get this straight, Mother. You were in a relationship with Wildcat when you were the first Wonder Woman?”
Hippolyta gave a hesitant nod. “That is correct.”
“And yet you’ve always told me that men were not to be trusted, which technically makes you a hypocrite,” stated Diana, crossing her arms over her chest.

It was his own fault. He knew that. He just wished they knew it, too.
He couldn't move, couldn't speak, but he could hear. He heard everything they said.
They were worried.
He didn't want them to be. He didn't deserve it.
In fact, he wanted them to leave him alone to suffer. Then he could learn from his mistake.

Superman took in a deep breath as he reluctantly agreed. "Wonder Woman is right. Let's go, everyone."

It was actually a baffled What!!! followed by a Why? which was weakly mouthed.
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.
"Nothing," she admitted.
He sighed and struck his palm against his forehead.
"Tell me something, Diana! Did you come to me for advice? Or are you merely to informing me?"
She thought for a while.
"It was Hawk Girl's idea," she said, pointing to her winged friend. He squinted at her and she dodged him.
Diana took charge, knowing that Hawk Girl wasn't going to plead her case as she did before her a few hours ago.

And will never turn away.
In the moments that you need me,
You will find I never stray.
You're forever in my heart,
And you're always on my mind,
So call when you need saving,
And my love you're sure to find.
I'm standing out here waiting,
And I'd do it all day long.
For you I found my patience,
And I know it can't be wrong.
No matter what the reason,
I'll always be right here.
When you need me at your side,
I will always hold you near.
I know you're not defenseless,
But relax from time to time.
To see beauty locked in worry,
It surely seems a crime.
Just let me come to help you,
You can finally drop your guard.
You'll find then love comes easily,
And that caring's not so hard.
I can't promise you a hero,
Cause I'm not a perfect man.
But I will always try my hardest,
To fill each desire that I can.
I'll always be there with you,
Wouldn't leave you in distress.
If you're to be my damsel,
I wouldn't give you any less.

Barbara looked down at the small device in front of her. She stared at the small blue line in complete disbelief, then she turned her head to look at the key again, it hadn't changed, nothing had. Barbara left the en suite bathroom and walked into the bedroom, she sat on the edge of the large king-size bed and stared down at the device again. She didn't know what to think. This was completely unexpected and unbelievable and terrible and absolutely wonderful. Barbara put the device down. She slowly and carefully placed her hand on her abdomen. She closed her eyes, this was completely overwhelming. Barbara blinked as she felt pressure building up in the corners of her eyes and smiled down at the pregnancy test on the bed beside her as she thought of the amazing miracle that was now growing inside her.

That chivalry is dead
Has not yet had the delight
Of meeting my Romantic Knight
My knight is there through thick and thin
The stories I could tell, where to begin?
He would slay for me the dragon red
And on a platter, serve its head
He whisks me away to lands unknown
And places me up high upon a throne
He would traverse cross the angriest sea
Just to spend a few moments with me
Upon his steed, his colors fly high
The people stop to watch him ride by.
In heavy chain mail shiny and bright
For my honor he would surely fight
The other ladies just stop and stare
Lay a hand on him, they do not dare
As he approaches and drops to one knee
He professes his everlasting love for me

There was one among our pack
Who seemed to keep the very night back.
Just by his presence we felt more calm
Than any power of Pope could balm.
For he was Gods own mighty Paladin
And none could be found braver among mortal men.
His bravest deeds were known by all
For he had been blessed by the Pope that Fall.
He had fought righteously in many a war
And his life in service, he swore,
Pleased him so that he could not complain.
His life was his Lords, with or without the pain.
He rode atop a great white steed,
One, of course, from a blessed breed.
His armor shown like Heavens light
Surely as a testament to his holy might.
Upon the saddle he sat proud,
And the very sky dared not shed a cloud.
One thing I did notice that night at the inn,
Was that the bards forgot in their din
To include the Paladins most perilous quest:
His great search for anything with breasts.
In between drink and eat, he never missed
A chance to make a girl feel as if she were blesst.

“Thank you,” he said.
“Thank you?” she repeated, “Didn’t expect to hear that from you.”
Bruce brought his fingers to either sides of his forehead and massaged in clockwise motion. He had his eyes shut tight and his hands were quivering.
“Here, let me help,” Diana said as she placed both her palms on his head, thumbs meeting on his forehead and applied a gently pressure. Bruce seemed to ease into the touch and breathed heavily. He opened his eyes once Diana eased the pressure. It was then that he realized that he was not in his home, and the lady nursing him was not whom he had expected to see.
“Hello,” he said, his voice quivering a bit.
