    Summary

    Birth control when she had first come to this world had been largely limited to ‘pull out and pray,’ which had not boasted the best success rate, even for actual goddesses. This, however, has much changed; now, the very options in this modern age are sometimes dizzying to her with their sheer variety.  And yet, despite their vast improvement in effectiveness, Diana admits there is still one universal flaw. 

    You still have to remember to use them, Diana thinks ruefully, eying the little plastic stick in her hand, and it’s unmistakable plus sign. 

    Diana is having a baby.

    Diana is meant to be recruiting a league, to defend the earth against an invading army of aliens, lead by impossibly powerful beings.

    Or, there is a baby coming…and also a war.

    Summary

    She’s standing by the bed, looking at him with that look that hasn’t changed in almost 100 years. The first time she looked at him that way, there was snow falling, dust from a collapsed church in her hair, and her lasso in her hands glowed golden with promise.

    The consistency of her is absolutely all he needs.

    Well, Steve supposes, stepping in, closing the bedroom door behind him, already reaching for the top button of his shirt, perhaps there is one difference from then and now.

    The strap-on in her hands is a pale peach, her lips are so, so red, and absolutely all of him is aroused.

    Sex toys have definitely improved since the 20th century.

    Or Steve, finding his way in this brave old new world. Mostly by way of pegging.

    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.

    Summary

    Why can no one else see what Flash sees when he looks at Peter? They're so blinded by his puppy-dog eyes and his brilliant brain that they don't notice the things that Peter does. The lying. The neglect of commitments. The secrets and disappearances and attention-seeking claims of being mentored by a tech genius. But Flash notices. And tries to tell people.

    AKA Flash bullies Peter because he's jealous
