⎇001JW Emergence Vignette: The Interrogation

This entry is part 4 of 4 in the series Justice Wing Emergence Anthology

“I’ve compromised their security system,” Nightstick said, quietly. “The feeds won’t show us in there, and Carter will be tied up in red tape for at least seventeen minutes. The door’s locked and I’ve set a secondary lock-seal on this side to reinforce it. This is our window.”

“Gotcha.” Paragon took a deep breath. “I’ll take bad cop,” he said, after a moment.

Nightstick turned to look at Paragon.

“What? You said it yourself. We’re low on time.”

⎇001JW In Nadir Pentad of Guardians: Transposition #4 (Conclusion!)

This entry is part 4 of 4 in the series Justice Wing In Nadir: Transposition

"My point is… every day I was confused, or scared, or didn’t know what was wrong with me. I felt ungrateful. So blessed with so much, and I couldn’t just live the life people expected from me. And then… then I started reading about you. Not just the pioneering aviator, or aeronautical engineer… but a woman who kept her own name after marriage. A woman who lived her life and when it was public may have been coy but she was also unashamed. I wanted that, so badly. I just wanted to be… me. And be happy. You helped me believe that was possible. And then… the Pentad made it real.” She took a deep breath. “And I believe you’re really the ghost of Amelia Earhart. I don’t know why, but I do. And it feels like this is my big chance say all this to you, and to thank you – for everything, as well as for the advice you’re giving me now.” She paused. “Even when that advice is full of crap.”

“Are you nuts!?” Orville shouted. “Are you seriously about to call down an orbital strike on yourself!?

“Please,” Jetgirl muttered, kicking into full burn. “Sky-eye’s at ten thousand feet at the most. It’s hardly Low Earth Orbit. This is just a garden variety energy-weapon airstrike.”

This entry is part 2 of 4 in the series Justice Wing In Nadir: Transposition

Landing in his full grey tunic and uniform with the pink v-overlay, pink mask on his face, the man landed with arms spread wide. “I dare, Kitsune!” He moved into a fluid spelldance, protective fields spreading out to protect the civilians – he’d quietly warded them before, so Jetgirl knew these new ‘wards’ were just theatrics. “Last of my Order from a World that never was! Red Point of the Pentad of Guardians! Founding Excelsior and exemplar of life! I am the Heart and the Healing! I! Am! Hearth!”

“…oh God don’t do the catchphrase,” Jet muttered. “There are people here.”

⎇001JW Justice Wing Music: “Niagara Nights” by Colton Pike

This entry is part 1 of 1 in the series Justice Wing Music

As the world of Justice Wing fleshes out, some of the music native to that world needs to come with it. This is a song by the 'gloriously broken' Colton Pike off one of his earlier albums. It's called "Niagara Nights."

⎇001JW Interviewing Leather Revised #11 (Conclusion!)

This entry is part 11 of 11 in the series Interviewing Leather Revised

“Because….” I looked off, down the street. “Because we live with you. Your kind. The heroes and the villains. We live with you and we thrill with you and sometimes we’re entertained by you and sometimes we’re terrified by you, but we don’t understand you. Not always.” I put my hands in my pockets. “Barbara Babcock’s a better reporter than I’ll ever be, but that’s just it. She reports on what Paragon and the rest of you do. Not on who you are. This… this is a chance to write about who you are.” I shrugged. “That’s too important to blow on a puff piece drooling over Leather in a PVC leotard.”

⎇001JW Interviewing Leather Revised #10

This entry is part 10 of 11 in the series Interviewing Leather Revised

So, Leather’s just wrong?”

“Mm.” He leaned back. “She’s wrong headed. In a number of ways, really, but I’m thinking of a specific kind of thing, here. We don’t need villains to be heroes… but some villains like her? They need us to need them.”

“It’s how she sleeps at night. She wants to steal anything she likes without any consequences for it. She wants a certain standard of living. She wants to make the evening news. And she wants someone else to pay for it. But… she pretends to have a conscience. Not to you or me, mind. She’s deceiving herself. She knows that she should feel guilty unless she can find some justification. And what better justification than literally making heroes possible? If she decides she’s enabling heros to be heroic, then she can satisfy that fake conscience. Heroes inspire people and save lives but only so long as villains like her make heroes possible in the first place. Having settled that, she can go out and steal anything she wants and still sleep like a baby.” He shook his head. “That 'help?' I do not need, did not ask for, and vehemently oppose. Is that unambiguous enough for your purposes, Mister Chapman?”
