A Curious Case Of Loving A Hatter
Thus grew the tale of Wonderland...
Lancelot Pendragon would have never thought to stay late at the office. He was a busy man, yes. But he had his secretary, Gerard Montain, planning tomorrow's appointments and such. Lance sat at his desk, back arched in a elegant manner, hands folded under his chin. Eyes staring at nothing in particular. He was wary of running into Dr. Emile Dorin and thus half the reason he had stayed late. Something else was also digging at the older Pendragon's mind. A knock on his office door, prompted him to actually look at something.
"Yes?" He asked, arching a quizzical eyebrow.
Gerard walked into the office in his usual business like manner. Lance sat up a little straighter. Gerard was a work-a-holic at best but he was good at his job and he didn't let anything slow him down from getting anything done. If a task was given, Gerard would see it through until it was finished promp

Don't ever look too far because you don't know how far you will fall and you might not be able to throw out your hands in time but you can some how count on someone to be there to catch you...if you can find someone to trust that is...
The usual dreary grayness of Gotham's skies caused a slight rain shower to perfume the air, making it a few degrees warmer but it didn't help the back drop as a small car pulled up to Arkham's gates. The window rolled down and a red headed woman held out her ID card to the guards who stood out front. One of the guards looked it over and then nodded his head as he and the other guard opened the gates for her to drive on through. The red head kept her hands on the wheel, her fingers clinging to the soft leather as she drove slowly. Her light blue eyes keeping their gaze on the dark building straight ahead. She drew a breath as she parked her car in

Commissioner Jim Gordon rubbed his eyes and then placed his glasses back on his face. He was looking over what appeared to be a 'clean crime scene'. The men and woman of his unit were baffled, had become baffled. There was nothing broken, no forced entry, nothing.
"Did we find anything?" Gordon asked, although he knew the answer as the question left his lips.
"Nothing sir. The tea shop is clean", Allen replied, he then held up in his hand a neatly folded piece of paper, "Though, Andrews and I found this while doing a sweep of the tables".
Gordon took the neatly folded piece of paper from Allen and opened it. It was a poem but the words were lost on Gordon. Allen just shrugged.
"The Jabberwocky?" Gordon muttered under his breath.
"Whoever this guy is. He's polite enough not to steal, break or do anything except have a cup of tea and write poetry", Allen commented.
"This is no ordinary criminal", a gruff voice spoke out.

His eyes stared up at the dark and blank stone ceiling. There were no cracks to be seen and there was a thick layer of dust rising against it. Small white flecks of dust rising off the floor, dancing slowly in the darkness. The only hint of light came from out in the hallway from the dimmed lighting on the ceiling. Faint screams were heard from the halls just beyond his cell. His hands were folded on top of his stomach. He drew a slight breath, his mouth open slightly. His tongue clicked slightly against his teeth, as though he were counting them. But not even that could entertain his attention. Not even the only two items he was allowed, his top hat nor his copy of "Alice In Wonderland", could keep his mind occupied. Jervis was so deep in his t

But upon trying to enter part of the city, they found the city to be under some sort of lock down. But not the whole city of Gotham was. Some sort of invisible wall or fence seemed to be trapping the northern part of the city but both of the figures had tried to see a way around it. They walked around aimlessly but there was no way in. And they were the only ones who seemed to be on the outside. The redhead young woman had decided to try to find a ladder to climb over the invisible wall.

One-Shot: Madness Meets MagicIt was late afternoon and a thunderstorm in Gotham was not unheard of. A fierce wind seemed to hit against windows, rattling anything that was not nailed down. Thunder clapped loudly as lightening seemed to light up the sky, flashing blindly and brightly. The window in Jason Blood's apartment had been left open with the intention of making the air less stuffy in the living room. The apartment was quiet and left unattended. It's occupants out in the city for the time being. Perched on the second shelf of the book case was a snow globe. Although, the snow globe was not there intentionally for decoration. It was holding a being who had been grounded. The figure sat in it's chair, arms folded and looking annoyingly tempered. His cat, Teekl, had been curled up on the shelf, napping since her master's imprisonment in the globe. She had snuck back into the apartment some time ago and had been napping there ever since.

Jonathan Crane sighed in agitation as he reached up to remove his glasses from his face as they had started to make sweatbeads along the bridge of his nose and his eyes, which sort of blured his vision in the semi-darkened room of his office, which was a big windowless room with shelves and tables, a couple of chairs, a floor lamp and a small light on his chemestry table. Each flat surface of his office was covered in items ranging from his fixation with fear toxin gas to several items that weren't his.
The items in question belonged to his delusional and overly imaginative friend, Jervis Tetch. Jervis was seated in a low arm chair in the corner of the room next to the floor lamp. Erin Knightly was perched on Jervis's leg. His arm was wrapped about her waist. His other hand was perched under his chin, blue eyes watching between what Jonathan was doing and Erin. Erin was thoughtfully reading her copy of "Alice In Wonderland that Jervis had gotten her a wh

The doctors had tried to record her but it was tough. It was hard to tell when she would be Guen Pendragon or Wraith. And it was hard tell because she switched back and forth automatically. It was like a flick of a light switch. And not even she knew which identity she was. She could be Guen for maybe three hours but then a good chunk of time, she could be Wraith for god knew how long. But again, the doctor's attempts to record this was futile.Batman: AA: Wraith in Short Stories More Like This

The yellow and black flying tech bug was jetting all over the sky. Soaring here and there. He was chuckling to himself as he continued to do figure eights in the sky. A rather disgruntled Oswald Cobblepot, better known as the Penguin, gripped in his hand. Firefly had the shorter man by the back of his tux jacket. Giving him a good view of Gotham City. Penguin didn't look so pleased and a little bit sick at going so fast. He wasn't the least bit thrilled because the other criminal had barged in on his date with Erin Knightly. The redhead was standing just beneath them on the ground, looking less than pleased.
"Psh! Knightly, please! This flightless bird needs to be taught the ropes of what it's like to live in this city!" Firefly told her.
Erin made a disapproving face, planting herself firmly on the ground, her hands on her hips. Lips pressed together and glaring up at him. Not that Firefly really cared.

Ashen silver-tinted hues darted over to where you sat rigidly on the edge of the velvety chair, brilliant amber light from the sunset outlining the contours of your visage.

Addendum: Sam Kane/Redbird/SwiftWhen Sam becomes a hero, he either picks the named "Redbird" out of respect for past aliases of his friends, or "Swift" to have a more unique outfit. He's still more influenced by Nightwing than his brother, Joseph; but is more often at his brother's side than at his mentor's.Addendum: Sam Kane/Redbird/Swift in Profiles More Like This
If the case is he becomes Swift as a kid, his costume as a kid remains relatively unchained, with perhaps blue replacing the red.
As a teenager, Sam is officially Swift. He choose an outfit that's more like a cross between Ninja Gaiden and Bat-family armor. While most of his arms are bare, he does use reinforced gauntlets. There is a hood attached to the armor for stealth, as well as a scarf with a split end, like a swift's tale. He often brings it up to cover his mouth for stealth, but normally wears it "because it looks cool". He also wears a domino mask. The armor itself is light yet extremely durable, and is molded to Sam's body. As a growing boy, though, Sam needs to make a new set every so often and will us

“UGH, what in the world am I doing with my life?” She groaned to herself, slapping the little journal she kept all her private thoughts in shut. It was the only thing she had to talk about just about anything she wanted to. While it was dangerous to keep while living in the same Tower as the Avengers (thanks to Tony and J.A.R.V.I.S., of course), she couldn’t help but feel like she’d explode if she didn’t.

When Loki woke up at seven in the morning, he didn’t really expect two things.
One, that he would be up this early.
Two, that he would hear the glorious sound of his wife retching in the room next door, a sound that echoed ever so beautifully in the hallways of his chambers.
“(Name)??” He asked groggily as he stumbled out of the warm furs of their shared bed and tried to find her. “(Name), where are you, love?” He called again. Instead of a response, though, he received another retching sound. Ah, there she was; in the bathroom.
It wasn’t a Midgardian’s definition of a “bathroom”, rather, it was the room with the bath. And the slightly large window next to it.
Which is exactly where he found her.
Throwing her guts up and out the window.
“(Name)?!” He cried, rushing over to her, placing a hand on her back. She held her hand up as she finished, her legs giving out. Quickly he caught her, lowering them both to the floor.

A loud sigh escaped the lips of everyone's favorite fallen prince. He had spend the entire night trying to comfort his one true baby love, (Name) Lokidottir. She was a sweetheart, always very well behaved since the day he took her in from his Midgardian doorstep. It was quite an interesting predicament, honestly, but in the end he ended up completely falling in love with her.
However, it was moments like these when he sort of regretted taking her in. Moments, for example, like now, when she was bawling her eyes out and absolutely refused to do anything, let alone sleep or eat. He'd only had her for about two days. She wouldn't quit wailing since a 14 hours ago.
And he was definitely feeling it worse than her. Do you have any idea what 14 hours of no sleep does to a single father? More than you could ever hope to comprehend, that's for sure.

Words can be like knives that cause the victim to grow weak
Thoughts can be as bullets shooting freely through the sky
Injuring the innocent with every spoken lie
Please forget my laughter, please forget my broken heart
Please do not remember how you tore my life apart
Leave me as a memory that slowly fades to grey
Spend your days as usual, and I shall fade away
Listen to my cry for help, although it is too late
I've become the monster that you struggled to create
Trying to be perfect was a wonderful mistake…
Now I mustn't worry about which chance I will take.
Please erase all memory of who I tried to be
Please do not remember how I tried to be set free
Please do not be saddened under any circumstance …
What's makes now so different from when you still had a chance?

There are places to go,

How can you be sure those places are bad?
There are things to see,
Things you have never seen before.
How can you be sure those things are ugly?
There is a new tune to hear,
Something you've never heard before.
How can you be sure that tune is scary?
There are words to be said,
Things that have never been said before.
How can you be sure those words are hurtful?
There are dreams to be imagined,

Once the sky stops raining.

Going faster, stronger, better

Till the birds start to sing, and
Happiness overwhelms you,
And a smile takes over your face

Crying, screaming, dying...
Indeed it did, it
Even when the raindrops would never end.

Whose eyes rain crystals,
Why do you wish to heal?
Do you not understand the beauty
Of your ability to feel?
Whose grin’s so bright,
Why do you wish to change?
A soul with no emotion
Would appear to be quite strange.
Whose face is dull,
Why do you live this myth?
You choose to be a shadow,
Smashing daisies with your fist.
With wounds and scars,
Why have you chosen this death?
No, sinking into your own grave
Would be better than such regret.
You’ve started to feel,
Just recently you’ve started to cry.
You’ve been down this path again and again,
With a pain you’re designed to deny.
Whose eyes rain crystals,
Why do you wish to heal?
Do you not remember the torture
Of being unable to feel?
