    Bookmarker's Notes

    "When the three Ages of His confinement end, and if He continues to manifest repentence, Our brother Melkor shall be released from Mandos as We promised, to dwell among Us and help to undo the harm in Arda that He did in aeons past. But to aid His re-entry into Our society and that of the Children, " a faint, cool smile was sent in Nienna's direction, "He shall do so in the form that We decree, for so long as We see fit. Aule and Yavanna, design the changes to Angainor that must be made. Irmo and Namo, prepare Yourselves to bind Him in His new form. Nienna, You may inform Him of Our decision and if possible reconcile Him to it. I have considered the proposals for His form that have been made. He shall be a cat. Yavanna may choose His colour. It is so decided."

    "When my father said we should have a feast to bring us all closer together," Fingon said, "I don't think this was what he had in mind."

    "We absolutely cannot tell your father this happened," Maedhros said. "He scares me too much."

    Bookmarker's Notes

    If the kryptonite voices came back, he thought dimly, he would have to tell them. They had become their own answer. There were no unknowable minds here, no eternal aliens.

    Because that same fear that had eaten at him, about humans, had looked back at him from human eyes about himself.

    Summary

    Somewhere in the multiverse, there's a universe where letting his children dress up in capes and follow him into vigilantism seems like a good idea.

    Bruce is determined that it isn't going to be this one . . . Despite his children's repeated attempts to convince him otherwise.

    (Or: "When you're eighteen, you can do what you want. Until then, no capes.")

    Montoya gave Bruce a wild-eyed look, like he was the sensible one out of the two capes she'd met tonight, and would understand how crazy it was that she had gone out for a night of undercover illegal dumping and ended up talking to Superman in a container yard. A true Gothamite.
