Guess who’s moving to a sunnier side (Burnside, Brooklyn) of Gotham. Or at least what passes for sunnier in the dreariest fictional city ever… Batgirl! With a whole new makeover, Barbara Gordon will have a brighter storyline that begins in October. A brand new life for Babs, according to DC, means there will be more detective work, more mysteries, more adventures, and much more fun.
Batgirl, by Stanley Lau.
Bucky had enlisted. Bucky was shipping off tomorrow.
Steve’s whole body ached, though not in the way it usually did. It was pleasurable pain this time. The bruises and marks on his skin hadn’t come from enemies this time, but from a lover; from Bucky. Bittersweet battle wounds, won during the act of their love making. Despite Bucky’s concern for his health, Steve had wanted it, insisted on it, desperately needing to have the proof of Bucky all over him.
For the first time in his life, Steve wished that the bruising wouldn’t go away, that they’d sink into his flesh and stay there forever, becoming a tattoo of an unvoiced promise.
To the end of the line.
Tightening his grip on the bedsheets, Steve promised to himself that tomorrow, he’ll try harder and that soon, they’ll be together again, whether that be in Brooklyn or side by side in the trenches.
