Tim? He doesn’t actually work for us. He just started...showing up before shows and doing errands for people without pay. You know, gofer work and stuff, fetching coffee, making photocopies. Seems like a good kid. )

"Cicisbeo" was an actual term of the time for a male "gallant and lover" of a married woman...I have manufactured a cheerfully pansexual Regency for the purposes of this story.

There were furtive figures moving around, leading a line of smaller figures, their young frames covered in dark cloaks. Bruce heard a sound of metal against metal as the line shuffled forward, and realized it was the sound of chains muffled by cloth. )

Across the way, Steve Lombard was dancing with Oliver Queen and Lady Dinah Lance in turns, and it was anyone's bet which of the two--or both together--would be accompanying him upstairs later. Catherine Grant was sitting on a loveseat with a politician's head in her lap, listening raptly to his discussion of the hardships of his work as he twined a lock of her golden hair around his finger. Lois Lane was everywhere at once--pouring drinks, playing the pianoforte, getting into spirited arguments about women's rights with delighted pinks of the <i>ton.</i> )

Justice League 19: Written by Geoff JOHNS; Pencils by Ivan REIS
Justice League 20: Written by Geoff JOHNS; Pencils by Gene HA, Andres GUINALDO, and Joe PRADO


The most recent Justice Leagues have featured the return of one of my favorite things about the DCU: the Kryptonite ring!  Unfortunately it's embedded in some writing I don't much care for, but I love the ring so much that I want to burble about it here, and I have to admit Johns adds an angle to the trope that I didn't see coming and I quite like.

The story starts with Superman and Wonder Woman freeing hostages in Kahndaq and debating whether or not they should start ignoring international law to start being a more active presence in such places.  Superman says no, Wonder Woman says yes, concluding that "Nothing can stop us, Clark."

Cue arrival of Batman: )

I haven't been posting many scans because JL is mostly embroiled in a Superman/Wonder Woman romance that I find, well...ill-advised, mostly, but there have been a few interesting moments relating to Clark and Bruce lately.

The first is a line Bruce gets when Superman has been infected by the Cheetah and become a, um, feral super-cat-beast:

Superman is one of the most important people in the world. This man is my friend. )

She heard distinctive baritone laughter by the doorway and turned to see four figures walking into the restaurant. Summer's eyes widened as she recognized Bruce Wayne in a double-breasted gray suit and--was that really Princess Diana of Themyscira in a silvery cocktail dress and diamond tiara? )

Summary: Clark, Bruce, and Diana find themselves in an alternate world where they and their friends are characters in Arthurian legend.

Notes: This was written about two months ago as a reflection on mortality, regret, and second chances.  Since then one of the characters who's dead in this story seems to have come back to life, and one that's living in the story has died.  Do a bit of a mental rewind for me, please.  :)

It's never too late, Diana said quietly beside him, her presence as solid as the earth. )
