Take What You Can: Chap 1(ish)

 "Lloyd. We clear?" Matt said into his Bluetooth. He had one finger in his other ear to try and block the noise of the wind up on the roof of a high-rise apartment complex. Down on the twentieth floor, a man pushing a janitor's cart answered. "Yes, Matt, you're clear. Better go fast, though. Roland's only gonna be with her for about ten minutes, then who knows where she's going." "I'll be done before then. Go get the van. I'll meet you in the garage." "Already on my way." Matt flicked his cigarette over the edge and set to work clamping a winch to the edge of the roof and checking his harness. Once ready, he pulled a small remote out

   Ashes was thoroughly enjoying herself, despite a gnawing worry about the rest of her friends. Having an experience that no one she knew could ever possibly have was giving her butterflies and shivers and anything else you'd care to name. She thought that Wolfe would've loved to be in her shoes right now. Theatre was one of the few things that kept him fully occupied in high school and on top of that, he was a history nerd. Not that he would ever let anyone know that, of course.   The play done, Ashes walked out of the theater with the rest of the groundlings into a London lit by torchlight. It was an incredible sight.

   Ashes quickly realized how out of place she looked and ducked down a side street on her way to the Globe, effectively losing Veronica in the process. She saw a line of laundry down the narrow alleyway and made straight for it, finding a skirt and blouse that fit almost perfectly. She ignored the corset, however.   Back on the main road, she walked at a brisk pace still feeling like people were looking at her with undue interest. She double checked the sleeve of the blouse where she had hidden a small dagger Wolfe had given her a year or two ago.   She was almost to the bridge that led straight to the Globe when a horrible smell assault

   Storm saw the Plexiglas shield go up around his seat and in the next second he was being propelled into the night sky. The sheer g-force knocked him unconscious and the next thing he knew he was waking up in a back alley that he vaguely recognized. He got up gingerly and went out into the street.   What he saw didn't shock him. It didn't make him stagger back in amazement. In fact, it was a bit of a letdown. What Storm was looking at was the street in front of his and Fangs' apartment. It was raining. Storm thought back to the last time it rained in Logan. To his mind, it had been a week since it had rained. He looked up and down the str

   Kyran collapsed on the floor of the basement, breathing hard. His father stood over him with a stopwatch, tutting.   "You're still five seconds short of my best time, sport," Hugh said, looking down at his panting son. Kyran held up a certain finger. "I'm adding another five seconds for bad sportsmanship."   Kyran regained his breath. "Your best time was seven years ago, Dad. I bet I could beat you now by at least five seconds."   "Hey now, a best time is a best time. Doesn't matter when it was or how many back problems the guy gets later in life." Kyran just scoffed.   "Come on, Dad. Race me. I'll make it interesting."   "How in

   "Come on, hit me."   "Dad, I'm tired. Even if I hit you, you wouldn't be able to feel it."   "Just ten more punches, Kyran. Then you can do whatever you want." Kyran's dad held up his hands, which were strapped to boxing pads. Kyran sighed, got up, and drilled ten quick jabs into the pads.   "Okay. Ten. I'm done." Kyran brushed his sweaty, dirty blonde hair out of his eyes and took the tape off his knuckles. His father took off the pads and put on his glasses. They made him look considerably geekier. Kyran's father was basically a taller, more muscular version of Kyran himself. They shared a lot of features except for their complexio

   Ashes woke at two in the morning to the sound of someone walking around her apartment. She rolled over to find Wolfe not there next to her and guessed it was he who was walking around. She rubbed her eyes and walked out of the bedroom to see him just about to start a game of solitaire.    He looked up and smiled. "Sorry. Did I wake you up?" She nodded not having the energy for words. "Sorry," he said again. "Full moon tonight." She understood what he meant. The wolf spirit rarely let him sleep despite the fact that wolves aren't actually nocturnal but simply because of the connection to the moon. Ashes hersel

   "Radar!" Wolfe called. There was a crash from somewhere beyond the rows of shelves. "Ah, there he is." Wolfe strode through Radar's lab, trying not to touch anything. Everything was so precariously balanced and potentially dangerous that touching any of it could be a disaster. Wolfe found his technologically advanced friend in the back, working on a massive silvery machine.   "Hey, Wolfe. Just a sec," came a voice from under the machine. Wolfe sat down in a swivel chair, depositing a bag of fast food on the workbench and pulling out a chicken sandwich. Five minutes later, Radar emerged, covered in grease and breathing heavily. He cleaned

She wasn't quite sure why she had taken the job. She hated deadlines. Her stomach rumbled sourly. She glanced around her studio. Her eyes locked on her colleague's tiny refrigerator. She stalked over to her prey and tore the door open. Vegetables. Was this Henri's refrigerator? She shrugged and pulled out the baby carrots, immediately shoving one into her mouth.

Man Of Steel short review. No spoilers.

Man Of Steel short review. No spoilers.

Man Of Steel: Did a good job of capturing the spirit of modern-day comic books, mostly through the composition of a lot of the big shots as well as the fight choreography/setting. Snyder does good work in that respect. Villain was appropriately scary and intimidating, fairly relatable, and driven by a good cause. Personally, I liked how the "early years" part of the story was spread out over the first two acts. Also, I thought Lois Lane was set up as a pretty strong character. On the other hand, it lacked emotional punch. I didn't feel very attached to any of the characters who didn't make it out of the film alive and there was a strong fee
