    Summary

    There are at least twenty pillows on the guest bed at Teddie’s house: a stack of several full-sized pillows per person, all of varying firmness, and throw pillows edged with piping, or edged with ruffles, and one small pillow printed with navy blue stars and shaped like a goose that Grace despises above all the rest.

    Summary

    "Seven dollars for a loaf of wheat bread?" Clark could hear his voice crack on the last word. Holy moly, that was obscene.

    "Is that a lot?"

    Was that a lot? Jeez, he was way too young to have a heart attack over bread prices. "Yes, Bruce, that's a lot," he said. Wheat bread cost two bucks at Coogler's, and it tasted just fine to Clark. What was so special about the bread at Organic Eats that they had to charge five whole extra dollars for it?

    Or: New exchange student Clark Kent gets paired up with Bruce Wayne for a school assignment, based on this Tumblr post.

    Summary

    Clark Kent woke up, ate breakfast, went to work—the same way he did every day. Ordinary.

    Except for the part where Superman hadn't been seen in at least a week and nobody knew why, Lois was acting kind of weird, and Bruce Wayne was insisting that Clark was the only reporter he'd allow to run a feature on the crashed alien ship in the park, since Wayne Enterprises had been granted control of the site. And the way Clark felt every time Wayne looked at him a little too long definitely wasn't helping.

    But it was fine. Clark was normal, there was nothing wrong with him, and everything was fine.
