    Other times she dreams of him in the baths on Themyscira, or sleeping in a boat, or putting spectacles on her. One time she dreams of him wrapping her lasso around his wrist, the rope glowing gold against his skin.

    Summary

    Bruce doesn’t come to Paris for her. And sure, so maybe that fact that he only sent her the photograph a week ago plays a role. Maybe he just…wants to see if she’s alright. Because he might not know the exact story of what happened to the man in that picture, but he’d recognize that pain in her eyes anywhere.

    He’s seen it in the mirror enough.

    He doesn’t quite know what he expects to find when he knocks.

    The dead man who opens the door certainly wasn’t it though. Bruce stares at the dead man, and the dead man stares back.

    The dead man also has a gun.

    “So, you’re Batman,” Steve Trevor says.

    Or: #batfamiliesofchoice.

    Steve Trevor, Bruce knows, was a soldier in a dark time, who fought and died for his beliefs.

     

    In his eyes, Bruce can tell that he too understands how much harder it is to live for them.

    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.

    This, Diana thinks, is love. This is what it was really all for. The world is broken, crumbling, but still there is love, and so it goes on, as it should.
