Author’s Note: Written for my LJ Third Anniversary Fic Request Meme for [livejournal.com profile] ava_jamison. Pairing/Threesome: Trinity (Clark, Bruce, Diana). Prompt: Comrades-in-arms. :)



Diana eagerly awaited the signal for the battle to begin, hefting her sword, her golden armor snug to her body. Her blood sang with anticipation.

This battle would require every available Justice League member, central and auxiliary. Her Beloved was safe for the moment, in reserve with the other pilots, ready to serve when called.

She and her JLA colleagues were the first wave of combatants, the front line, the shock troops. All were prepared, ready to defend.

To her right was Clark, calm and steady, scarlet cape billowing out behind him, bright costume a match for hers in colors. He was a sunburst ready to shine.

To her left was Bruce, his stillness that of a ninja, his black cape a counterpoint to Clark’s. His eyes were watching, cataloging, planning, shimmering like the moon’s placid silvery light.

She was the planet’s greatest Warrior, Queen Hippolyta’s daughter, the blood of the finest Amazon warriors surging within her on the eve of battle.

Clark was a demi-god, who would have been right at home on Olympus, his power capable of bringing a world to its knees, his array of powers reminiscent of the Olympian pantheon, his heart that of a simple Kansas farmboy.

Bruce was a mortal god, his body pushed and honed to the peak of physical perfection, a master of martial arts and a master strategist, the dark fiefdom of Gotham in his blood as his cape nurtured and sheltered shining and sometimes-broken birds.

She was aware of their strengths and weaknesses, and each one complemented the other.

Clark and Bruce were her brothers, best friends, and soulmates.

The clarion call was sounded, clear and golden in the crisp autumn air.

They stood shoulder-to-shoulder, called to battle.

They were comrades-in-arms.

oooh! I love this - gorgeous descriptions of the way she sees herself and both of them! They do go perfectly well together, complete one another. Great work! :D

Fantastic!! I love the image of the three of them at that moment of stillness, just before the battle. ^___^

This reads almost like poetry.

I love Diana's confidence in herself and her brothers-in-arms. She's never been taught to self deprecate so she nows exactly who she is and what she's capable of. I pity the forces arrayed against this team!

Oh, I love the moment of contemplation before a battle, and Diana is a great POV choice for that! The Trinity as comrades-in-arms is a great theme...

Oh, Bradygirl, this is absolutely gorgeous! I LOOOOVE it! Gave me total chills. Fantastic imagery and word choices.

Very, very hard to pick favorite lines, and... I think I can't! I love it all. It's all so very, very good and heroic and perfect. *dreamy sigh*

Incredibly stirring moment before battle, and I really enjoyed seeing it through Diana's eyes. You write a pitch-perfect Diana.

Ooooh! This was awesome. :D

I loved how Diana thought of Bruce and Clark - with them as Gods, yum! :p And Diana herself, being such a fierce warrior...

Thank you for sharing it with us! :)

You described Diana in her golden armor so well!
And I loved the way she saw Clark and Bruce from her point of view! Amazingly written!

Clark was a demi-god, who would have been right at home on Olympus, his power capable of bringing a world to its knees, his array of powers reminiscent of the Olympian pantheon, his heart that of a simple Kansas farmboy.
I absolutely loved these lines! :) And the description of Bruce as "a mortal god" and "a master of martial arts and a master strategist" was excellent!

Clark and Bruce were her brothers, best friends, and soulmates.
comrades-in-arms

That was awesome!

Very well done!
Thanks for sharing. :)

Very beautiful. Loved this line in particular:

the dark fiefdom of Gotham in his blood as his cape nurtured and sheltered shining and sometimes-broken birds.

This is absolutely lovely. I really like the description of blood for Diana & Bruce, in the sense that they're both warriors in so many ways. And Clark as someone who could so easily be among the Olympians if he wanted to, that has never failed to awe me.

They're all anchors for each other and you put that across so beautifully here! ♥

Awww.

I love your descriptions on the Trinity, I can absolutely see them standing there ready for battle.

Of course that:

his cape nurtured and sheltered shining and sometimes-broken birds.

makes me grin with delight. Love how you slip in the Little Birds. :-)

Thanks for sharing.
