Amazons are fierce warriors. They’re strong, confident and beautiful. Something everyone wants to be. Even one amazon herself, Y/n. Ya see Y/n grew up with the amazons, much like her sister Diana she was brought to life by Zeus. Y/n loved her sisters with all her heart. But she always wondered why she was not as beautiful or confident as them.
When a strange man crash landed on their island Diana jumped at the opportinty to go with him to the war. She could bring one sister with her. And of course she chose her favourite sister Y/n. Y/n was happy her sister wanted to go but she wasn’t so keen on it herself. But being the sister that Diana was she dragged her sister with her.
And so that leads us where we are today. Fighting along side The Justice League. It seemed every week or so some random crime would happen and the team was forced to fight it.
Y/n loved being a part of a team. It reminded her of home. Though like home she didn’t really fit in. That part always annoyed her at the end of each day.
Y/n looked at herself in the mirror. She saw a big girl with tears in her eyes. “Why can’t I be like my sisters?” she sobbed. “I’m so-so ugly,” she cried into her hands.
She heard a knock at her door. Wiping away the tear with the sleeve of her sweatshirt she walked over to open the door. Barry Allen stood there. He looked nervous. “Hi-um Y/n I was uh I was wondering if uh…..” he stuttered the words out. “If you’d like to maybe uh-”
Y/n smiled at him. He was the sweetest and most handsome man she had ever met. Y/n had the biggest crush on him. He’d never go out with me she always told herself whenever he was near.
“Iwaswonderingifyou’dliketogotoBruce’sdancepartythingtonight,” and just like Barry himself the words came at lightning speed. Y/n looked confused. “Can you say that again please Barry,” Barry looked like he was daydreaming. The way his eyes shined made him look like he was from another world. “Would you go to prom with me?” Y/n tilted her head. “I mean Bruce’s dance ball thing he’s having tomorrow?” Y/n’s head perked up. Really he’s asking me? Me? “Ok,” Y/n whispered. “Ok? Great fantastic! I’ll pick you up at eight?” Barry beamed. Y/n smiled. “yeah. I better get ready then,” Barry smiled wide. “Yeah-yeah I should probably do that as well.”
After closing the door y/n fell to her knees. I don’t have anything to wear, I didn’t think anyone would ask me. FUCK!
Y/n took out a bunch of dresses from her closet and threw them on her bed. She picked up a random one and tried to put it on. Squeezing into it. She looked at the too tight dress in the mirror. She looked herself up and down before bursting into tears. “Why?” she sobbed. “Why do I have to be so FUCKING UGLY!” The wind began to blow hard as if a storm was coming. Which it was. Sometimes Y/n could control the weather. Which gave her an advantage in fights.
The storm got louder the angrier she got. And suddenly she dropped to her knees and started heavily sobbing into her hands.
“Y/N! Y/N!” Diana and Alfred came rushing in. None of the others knew about her powers. “Hey, hey, hey look at me,” Diana said softly. Y/n looked to her sister with tears streaming down her face. Diana wiped them away. “What is wrong sister?” Y/n looked into her sisters eyes. “I-I-” Y/n croaked. Alfred walked over with tea in his hands and a soft smile on his face. He was like a father to her.
“I will help you sister,” Diana said confidence in her voice.
Walking down the marble steps with Diana’s arm hooked onto hers Y/n sighed. A sigh of relief. With a few strong words from her sister Y/n felt like a million dollars in her new dress. “You’re an amazon Y/n, do not let weak men tell you how you should look. Be proud of who you are and don’t let anyone tell you what to do,” truer words have never been spoken.
When they reached the last step Barry came walking over in a suit. “You look incredible Y/n.” Y/n smiled, “You don’t look too bad yourself speedster.” Barry smiled and offered his arm to the now confident amazon. She took it and looked back at Diana. “You two be good and stay safe!” Diana laughed as she watched her sister giggle and walk away with a man she could trust. Diana was a proud sister.
Barry lead Y/n to the dance floor. “I should probably tell you now that I can’t dance,” Y/n let out a cute little giggle. “I’ll teach you.” She placed her arm on his shoulder and took his other hand. Barry hesitantly placed his hand on her waist. “And then we sway.” They looked into each others eyes. Barry was sweating and he looked on edge.
“Why are you so nervous all the time?” Barry’s eyes widened. “I’m not usually nervous around people, I just uh- you’re really beautiful and I don’t want to mess this dance thing up cause I’d love to go out with you and-” Y/n laughed. “I like you too Barry.” Barry looked surprised. “Really?” Y/n nodded her head. “I mean me? I mean you could have any guy on the team and you like me?” Barry shook his head.
“Barry,” Y/n said in a sad tone. He looked up at her. “You are the kindest, funniest person I know. You were the one who made me feel at peace here. I was so alone without my sisters and I’m always very self conscious about my weight and-” Barry grabbed her face “You’re gorgeous,” he whispered as the two finally looked lips. They broke apart and rested their foreheads on each others and smiled happily.
