    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

    There are a lot of things Steve wants to say. Like 'what the hell is this thing,' and 'why are you in this fight all by yourself,' and 'I love you, I love you, I love you.'

    Instead, he says: “DIANA, LOOK OUT!” And then he dives to the side as the creature’s tail slices through the air where he once stood.

    (In which instead of properly dying, Steve Trevor gets shoved back into the world of the living a hundred years after the end of the war. It's more than a little confusing.)

    When nightmares overcome her, and ghosts dance behind her eyes, she haunts the empty corridors like a phantom that should be resting in peace but wasn't
