    Summary

    Charles needs to get married to get his inheritance; his best friend Erik is the obvious choice. Erik's straight, but it's all pretend anyway; of course he can keep seeing other people during their sham marriage. It would be just silly for Charles to be jealous. (On Tumblr here.)

    Summary

    A "what if" and a missing scene for Steve and Diana in Veld, because they both think they'll have time.

    --

    For all they don’t know about each other, Steve feels like she understands him, and that maybe, just maybe, he understands her too. The essence of each other, what makes them tick, what makes them hurt, and what makes them fall.

    Steve is falling in love with Diana’s smile, that look, that feeling — her.

    Summary

    The story Hippolyta told her daughter when she was a child was that she carved her from clay. That Zeus breathed life into her, this child she so desired, that she came into being.

    This, Diana learns, for all that it was a kindness, was a lie.

    Diana tells her daughter the truth; that she was born of love. Imperfect, too brief, human love.

    The truth, Diana thinks, the ticking echo of Steve’s watch pounding away in her head - her heart - is rarely a kindness.

    Or Diana; after.
