Katropolis: Area 5 Chapter 25A few tense moments passed. Yuna had begun to stare at the floor again, her tears dripping one by one. Sora wasn't quite sure what was going on. Chizuko was staring at Yuna, an expression of shock on her face.Katropolis: Area 5 Chapter 252 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
“Y-you..HOW COULD YOU!?”
In an instant, Yuna found herself with her back against the nearby wall, being held by her lab coat collar. Chizuko's facial expression had changed. She was clearly not very happy with what she had just heard.
“C-Chizuko, let me explain!”
“NO! Of all the things you could do, you go and create something that is pure evil!”
Sora, who had been standing at the doorway quietly, tried to intervene.
“Chizuko, I think you should calm down and let Yuna explain-”
“Stay out of this!!”
Backing up, Sora kept herself quiet. It was clear she was not helping the situation at all. Chizuko decided to let go of Yuna, who sunk to ground, shaking.
“I-I can explain. Just give a minute, please.”

I don't know why Nightwing has a surprised look on his face. He DID just see me put my guns in my holsters, right? Unless he spaced out...
I haven't decided if I can trust them yet. Aw what the hell, might as well see if I can earn their trust at least.
Red Robin: You're an anti-hero?
Me: Nope. I just run around shooting bad guys for fun.
I wonder if he picked up on my sarcasm... Of course I'm an anti-hero. I think the whole "killing is bad" moral code that heroes have is a big load of nothing but shit and that putting the bad guys in prison just so they can break out again is stupid as hell. Wait, is Red Robin talking? Yep. I probably should be listening. Oh well.
Red Robin: Cardinal, are you even listening?
Robin: From the looks of it she was ignoring every last word you said. Probably bec

Loneliness, I felt it, and I grasped it as I tried to comprehend everything. It was an emotion I didn't usually feel and I still don't, but there was a reason for that. Yet, why was I feeling loneliness? What circumstances were there to justify it? I was never used to having no-one around me and to be by myself, and it made me panic when I first realized I was, truly alone.
It still hurts me to think about it when I was alive once before, right? Besides, I'm used to being around people. I was surrounded by people on a daily basis, and it felt natural in those days, in the days I was once alive that is. People knew my name and what I did back then, and in those same days, I had a true life. I had a wife, kids, and a job at the local bakery.
However, one day, I was about to die. I fell onto

The rain pours down around my patrol group as we chase after Deathstroke. Next thing we knew, we were being attacked by people dressed in orange and black clothing. I was fighting side by side with my friends one second, and the next I'm alone in a dark room. Deathstroke steps out of the shadows.
Deathstroke: They left you here to save themselves. They don't care what happens to you, Maggie. They never have, and never will.
I felt angry tears threaten to spill from my eyes.
Me: NO! YOU'RE WRONG! MY FRIENDS WOULD NEVER LEAVE ME FOR DEAD!
Deathstroke leans forward so we're at eye level.
Deathstroke: You sound like you're trying to convince yourself, Maggie. What do you really think?

Guten Morgen, liebe Bürger.
Es folgt ein weiterer, wundervoller Tag
und gleich in den ersten Stunden
schickt die Sonne ihre warmen Strahlen
zu uns hinunter.
Genießt euer Leben in vollen Zügen,
behandelt eure Mitmenschen mit Respekt
und zeigt eure Freude durch ein Lächeln.
Lächeln ist ewig.
Lächeln ist Gesetz.
Zärtlich strich Cel mit den Fingern über ihr weiches Haar. Vor wenigen Minuten war Mina neben ihm eingeschlafen, eng an ihn geschmiegt. Die Hitze zwischen ihnen staute sich immer weiter und ihm wurde wärmer, doch es war ein angenehmes Gefühl. Schmunzelnd betrachtete er ihr zufriedenes Lächeln und drückte seine Wange an ihre Stirn.
Sie waren nun seit fast drei Monaten zusammen und er konnte sich ein Leben ohne Mina nicht mehr vorstellen. Dabei war es nicht mehr als ein dummer Zufall gewesen, dass sie beide zur gleichen Zeit einen Teilzeitjob in dem Eiscafé neben dem Einkaufszentr

Jason and I messed around for a few more hours, causing chaos and making Damian make an assortment of different facial expressions, before I finally convinced Jason to drive me back to my apartment so I could sleep. Pfft. Who needs sleep? I'm not going to sleep but patrol instead. Now I already know what you're thinking: "Maggie! You shouldn't be patrolling with a bullet wound!" well, you know what I say to that? SCREW MY BULLET WOUND! Patrol is far more important at the current moment in time. And, no, I won't get myself killed. I'm not that stupid.....maybe just a little, but that's not the point! I pull my emergency costume out of my closest. It always feels so cool putting on my costume and grappling out of my 8th story apartment window. Alrighty, what

8 WEEK TIME SKIP
Ok, so what's pretty much happened in the past 8 weeks is that I've gotten to work with the BatFam on various missions, mostly with the same people; Nightwing, Red Hood, and Robin. I don't work with Red Robin as much because he has Titans stuff to do and me and Bats don't work together because quiet frankly we don't get along. Oh, and they trusted me with all of their secret IDs. It's amazing what can happen in 8 weeks. Anyway, at moment Nightwing, Red Hood, and myself are on our marry way to find Deathstroke....I honestly think this is a dumb ass move considering the fact that if it comes down to a gun fight, Dick or Nightwing is defenseless and Jason and myself only have 4 hand guns between us. Deathstroke has an arsenal of wea

2 April 2550
It was early in the morning, and for Icarus it was not a good one (not that they often were). The young infiltrator was sitting in his Algebra I class, vaguely listening to his teacher who was trying to explain several problems that the rest of the class didn't understand or care enough to do so.
Put simply, Icarus was very bored. Partially because he hated school, and partially because he already learned most of what he was technically supposed to learn this year.
One of the trait requirements for Nightingales was a natural ability to learn very quickly. This served several purposes: it made them easy to train, it made them much more adaptable (a skill that is extremely crucial for the Nightingales' line of work), and it allowed them to learn academics at a much faster pace. This last purpose al

Warning: Cardinal has a "small" argument with one of the characters in this chapter and uses some strong language. If you no like strong language than read at your own risk. Anyone else, just enjoy.
You know my guess about Batman being angry? It was one hundred percent correct. But, luck for me, his wrath isn't pointed at me. Unluckily for Jason, or the Red Hood which ever you prefer, the the storm that was the Dark Knight's wrath was directed at him. Probably because he told me his secret ID.
Batman: Jason, we need to talk.
He didn't sound angry. Which is probably what scares me the most. He's icy calm and on top of that I CAN'T read his emotions from his face. Jason didn't seem the least bit fazed by the Dark Knight's icy command. So, I did the only logical thing that I could

Sheets of rain pour down onto Gotham City. People quickly scurry inside to avoid the cold droplets, but not Gotham's protectors (aka the BatFamily). Not when there was rumor of a new hero roaming around Gotham's rooftops. Nightwing, Robin, and Red Robin are running along the rooftops, minding their own business when they hear several gunshots. They quickly alter their course so that they're heading towards said gunshots. And that's when they saw her. Steam rose from her guns, still warm from the shots they'd fired. As soon as she hears them land she turns around to face them, pointing her guns in their general direction. Her eyes were masked with a black domino mask that had a red glow to keep them from seeing her eye color, but it was easy to see that she was glaring at them. Nightwing takes a cautious step towards her. Big mistake. She shoots him in the foot. He yelps and jumps back.
???: Step forward again and I'll shoot you a little higher up next time.

The Karshi, the ship Kemeng left on, was one of the ships that went back and forth from Earth to various points in UTO space. The human home world saw a lot of traffic from its alien allies as ships delivered personnel, equipment, and materials to aid in reconstruction. When a ship returned from Earth, it was not uncommon for it to come back with various goods. Presumably, this was how Mitchell would get his smoking drug. But the man also got something for Kira and her charge.
The wolfess sat down on the familiar bench she and Dylan had chosen as their place to be alone, with the familiar statue in front of it. The guardian crossed one leg over the other, then placed her charge down onto the thigh of her uncrossed leg. She held a small cardboard box in her other hand that was still steaming from when she heated it up at the mess. She placed it onto her other thigh and opened it up.
Dylan looked over at it after opening a bag of what he had said was dried m

Chapter 1: Flesh and Blood
Would you murder your whole, entire family if you knew that, in reality, they wouldn't actually be harmed? Even if you know something isn't real, does that allow you to be spared from your own fears and human emotions? In the virtual world, there are no consequences. There is no justice or accountability for anything that's done. No justice, no laws, no crimes, no vindication. All that mattered, in the end, was winning. And that's what human nature all boils down to.
Zeth Vitruvius was known to be the greatest Tartarian warrior that ever 'jumped'. Tartarus was the name of a virtual reality world said to be the origin of the universe itself. It is a virtual reality world of chaos and warfare, where cybernetic organisms fought for power and for 'drives' that would take them to a different reality. This world spawned many other digital worlds, but none of them were truly real. The world that Zeth originally came from is known as
Strive - Chapter 11 Rick hesitantly took the walker from Catherine and walked it out of sight. Daryl poked his crossbow into Catherine's back "alright, alright! We're walking!" He escorted them back into their pathetic cage. "Hey K, when do you think we'll get out of here...?" She sighed as he remained silent. "Mary must be so worried by now, we said that we would be back that night..." K plopped down onto the bottom bunk and stared at the ground "I'm sure we'll get to see them again soon... if they're still alive." Catherine jumped at the thought. "Don't say that, K! I'm sure they'll be fine on their own! Remember, they have T, he's a strong fighter...".Strive - Chapter 115 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

Kavna gets abducted by PariahPariah was on the planetary shuttle which was apparently named “the Tunguska” none of the crew knew what it meant, Nau said it was of human origin and it seemed appropriate for the mission. Lobos was monitoring a pod they had sent down to the surface, the shuttle was crescent shaped and had a space to store six pods in the center. There were two pilots controlling the ship as they hid inside a cloud to stay hidden in the night sky. They stayed there for a few minutes until Lobos said something.Kavna gets abducted by Pariah5 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
“One of the pods found a specimen, they seem to be of avian biology.” he said as he watched the monitor.
“It's retrieved it, fly down by that tree over here and we can pick it up.” he said as the pilots flew down.
As they were flying back to the main ship (Which was named “the Roswell” for the same reason as the other ship.) Pariah looked over at the monitor that showed the inside of the robot. The birdlike alien was immensely terrified, which was

A prime example of classical architecture in that part of the world, the buildings and streets constructed with white stone, each piece carefully carved by hand. Motor vehicles were forbidden from being brought in, to maintain the sanctity of the city.

And at the center was the grand temple of Shiero, built around the massive white monolith that seemed to stretch endlessly into the sky. The temple itself went up went up several hundred feet around it's form, casting a shadow on all around it, regardless of the time of day. It's form was made of a smooth, white marble that seemed to absorb the light that fell on it, as if to say 'I decide if you see the light'. No matter who you were, it was an intimidating sight to see, especially for first timers. But despite what it seemed to be, it was considere
