I have a few in progress stories, I promise that I’m not dead.
what if it was Peter, not Alice, who fell down the rabbit hole?
His new powers are exhilarating, exciting, and he flies through the sky at every chance he gets, as soon as the bell for school rings he’s racing out the door, ahead of the kids who call him a “nert” or a “queer” when they think that he can’t hear them, ahead of the teachers who look down at him, child of a single mother, an Irish mother at that. He can hear them in snide voices saying “at least she doesn’t have another twelve little hellions invading our halls.”
He shrugs them off because he couldn’t care less what they think, he has his mother, and she loves him, and though she doesn’t know about Captain Marvel yet, he’s sure she won’t be too mad. He’s saving people. The people of Fawcett city love him, and he can help them, instead of standing by while he watches a boy in his class get punched in the nose for being different. It’s a great feeling.
He lands with his big feet on the roof of his apartment building, the spell is whispered quietly and he crawls into his room. He peers out into the living room where his mom is lying on the couch, asleep, even though it’s only three in the afternoon. She’ll wake up in a few hours and make dinner, and then she’ll probably go back to sleep, he lays a blanket over her still form and goes to get his favorite stuffed animal, Mr. Rabbit, to keep an eye out for her, but then he remembers that he no longer has it. It’s in the hands of a little black girl who couldn’t stop crying after the fire went out.
He smiles as he remembers the look on her face, happy and surprised, and he thinks that if he was Billy Batson, he probably would’ve asked her to go get a milkshake.
Perhaps Mr. Shazam could look out for his mom tonight instead.
202. Artemis was originally not going to go to prom at Gotham Academy. Dick Grayson wasn't going to stand for this. Being one of her best friends at GA, he managed to convince her to go to prom with him. She didn't really understand why Bruce Wayne wasn't too happy when they were taking pictures at Wayne Manor. Artemis is still oblivous about who they really are.
