Hey Ollie, look, Speedy said with his mouth full. He jiggled the tube of potato chips in his hand and pointed to the face on the canister, grinning. Its you.
Green Arrow scowled as he took in the Pringles logo. Shut up, you little asshole!
Shh! Batman scorned as he floated deeper into the immense pantry in the Wayne Manors massive kitchen. A stunning juxtaposition of granite and stainless steel. Robin dwindled behind, the reluctance showing raw in his knitted brow and subtle frown. He cast a glance over his shoulder, finding that the digital clock on the oven read 3:47 AM.
Well it is! It looks just like him, ha ha! Man, Dick, you really shouldve been there when West brought it to light a while back, Speedy chuckled, drumming his fingertips on the tube. Oooh, that was great.

"LET'S GO! LET'S GO! LET'S GO!" Dick hollered with urgency, catching Wally passing him in the corner of his eye and Roy as he came up on his left. They were jetting off with all their agility power up the tall staircase, nearly tripping as they hopped onto the second floor and continued their life dependent streak. Paintings and doors blurred past them on the walls as the wood and carpet did under their feet, the halls seemed to get longer and longer as they tried to break through them.
"LOOK OUT WALLY HE'S RIGHT TH-"
"Shut UP Harper! Keep going Wally! We're almost-"
"Open the door OPEN THE DOOR!" Wally squealed as he nearly toppled past said door. He tugged at it frantically. "IT'S LOCKED!"
"You have to PUSH it!" Dick ordered, falling in quickly after Wally and Roy and all but slamming the door behind him. He pressed his back against the wood as his chest heaved for oxygen, staring

Okay, so not that Im not havin fun or anything, but again. Why. Are. We. Doing this? Cyborg inquired into his headset. He slurped noisily at his ICEE as he watched his camera point-of-view from his computer screen. Ya know if youre caught that youre a dead man, right? Small green mouse ears flicked into sight every now and then.
Dude, Ive been wanting to pull this one off for like, a decade and a half now, Beastboys voice resounded into his ears, Its like nearly impossible to do it back at the tower! Dick wouldve caught on in two seconds flat.
Aaaand you think he wont now because ? Cyborg propped his chin up on his palm with his elbow on the desk, watching the screen with a bored expression.
Because of Roy and Wally.

Humiliation. Utter and complete. At its finest even...how did he keep getting himself into these situations?
Yeah, hed been ecstatic when Roy called him and invited him up to the Wayne Mansion to hang out with him and Dick. And, if he remembered correctly, Roy had told him to haul his butt over by four or Dickll come find you. Yeah, he was excited until he realized the motive.
Wanted to hang out my ass, Wally thought as he pulled his sleeve and yanked his zipper up. More like wanted to torture me. He huffed as he gazed up the large stoop and began climbing it with disinclination. I was really hoping they forgot about that bet crap. He stood before the door and hesitantly rang the bell, adjusted his backpack over his shoulder. Here goes nothing. Or everything. Maybe just my dignity. Perhaps my manhood

Wally yawned hugely as he stirred, blinking his eyes slowly and smiling. Dang, Dick's bed sure was comfortable .wow, that sounded really heheheh.
He rolled over only to see Roy glaring right at him.
"Well, that's the face every man wants to wake up to every morning," Wally joked.
Roy's eyebrow twitched.
"What's wrong, snookems?"
"Nothing," Roy gritted through his teeth, "Just that I forgot that you talked in your sleep and it was seriously .you did not just call me 'snookems.'"
"Sorry, cloud butt--OW! The hitting is really--ow "
"A guy can only take so much queer-larity," Roy grumbled as he got out of bed.
"He got up and left a half hour ago to do something, I dunno."
" Did you sleep good?"
Roy paused in raking his fingers through his bed-head and eyed Wally from over his shoulder.
"Right, sorry, the violation of your manliness probably kept you up," Wally sighed, scooting to the end

So. Roy shoved his hands into his pockets and gazed across the vast, long hallway on the second floor. Many exquisite paintings and portraits where hung on the walls, and just below them were various vases and busts and other priceless relics for decoration purposes perched upon marble pedestals. Just waxed, huh?
Dick gave him a double-take and pouted. You know I hate it when you do that.
You hate it when I do a lot of things. But what?
You twist my words and make it sound all weird.
Or perverted, Wally supplied.
Dick huffed. Yeah. To answer your question, he just had the floors polished, his eyes flickered over to Roy, making him simper back much to his chagrin, Er, hence the shiny flawless exterior.
Dudes. Ya thinking what Im thinking?
I dont think about witches on a regular basis, Roy jeered.

"I've always wanted to carve up this bird!" Joker cooed maniacally, laughing as he moved in closer. Robin leaped back, noticing with dismay that he was being lured farther and farther away from the group. A few yards away, he noticed Wally being slammed out of the way by Count Vertigo, and winched in sympathy.
And then he ducked again, because the Joker's blade was just where his head had been a few moment ago.
"Aww, hold still, Boy Blunder." Joker hissed, his smile widening. The stretched red lips and bleached white skin look ghostly in the fading light. "You're taking all the fun out of this."
"Sorry to disappoint." Robin panted, backflipping just in time to avoid being skewered through the stomach. "Hope I didn't disturb you too much." he added, wishing that the team had been there. Conner always liked his wordplay.

It is terrible to stand here and watch Master Richard be treated this way, but it is for the better, no matter how much my heart wants to protest it. Master Barry dials a number on his phone too fast for me to keep up with, rapid words are exchanged, and less than a minute later there's a red and yellow blur flying across the screen.
The Riddler's henchmen descend upon the speeding figure but they are no match for its power. They fall to the ground, two at a time, and after no time at all, there's only the devious villain himself is left. The racing blur stops for a mere second and if there were any doubts that it were Kid Flash, they were eliminated for certain now. He doesn't wait for the man to finish his riddle, kicking him square in the face and knocking him out cold.

The Perfect MomentWally's school has just let out for the day and I spot him exiting the building from my spot on the sidewalk. Almost immediately I see a group of way-too-pretty schoolgirls make a beeline for him. The expression on his face as he notices them tells me all I need to know. They are my targets.The Perfect Moment4 years ago in Drama More Like This
And they are going to pay.
I watch as the prance over to him, wolves in sheep's clothing with massive grins on their faces. They block Wally's path and he's forced to stop, his shoulders sagging int that way I've seen so many many times when he's just tired and annoyed of something. I can't really blame him in this case. Who I infer to be the leader, a strawberry blonde chick with boobs that are way too big starts talking to him and his open in short, crisp responses. This is where my plan can come into action. I've placed some devices all over the school yard (you don't wanna know what kind) that'll give them a very very rude awakening call. I've already got my hand on the control pad. I wait for
Pizza, Redheads, and a RobinDick winced as Bruce dragged him along by the arm, the older man barely even noticing as numerous reporters snapped quick photos af the famous pair. There would be reports of child abuse in the tabloids tomorrow, and Alfred was going to give him a lot of hell, but Bruce couldn't be bothered to worry right now. They were going to be late.Pizza, Redheads, and a Robin3 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
The Dark Knight was many things: imposing, large, scary, intimidating, pushy, bossy, sarcastic, mean, quiet and broody. But he was never late.
"Walk faster, Dick. I can't miss this meeting." Bruce hissed under his breath, just quiet enough so that that the reporters couldn't hear. The last thing he needed was for the press to think that Bruce Wayne threatened his ward.
"Hmph, why do we even have to be here?" Dick huffed, snatching his hand free of Bruce's grip and crossing his arms tightly across his chest, a small pout working its way over his eleven-year-old face.
"I told you, there was a break in at one of the Wayne Tech centers in Star City. I have

Eleven year-old Robin pouted at the reprimand but did what he was told and stood more erect. He glanced up at his mentor, Batman, whose face adorned a careful but neutral mask. One that he wore often, Robin had quickly learned. He ripped his gaze away from the caped crusader and took in the immense control center of the Watchtower, an outer space-stationed headquarters for the Justice League.
He knew that he should not be here. Heck, it was evident that Batman was reluctant to let him tag along, but being that Alfred had too many things to do to keep what Batman would call a full-on monitored babysitting in check, here they were.
So...whats your meeting about? Robin asked hopefully. Is Gorilla Grod causing trouble in Africa again?
Im not sure. But its mandatory for me to be there, according to Superman, so Im sure its very important.
DealDick stopped mid-step as he entered his roomy bedroom, ice-cold glass of lemonade frozen to his palm, bright blue eyes glued to the sight before him. Wally West was passed out on his floor with no shirt on, sleeping as peacefully as a baby. The teen looked all too comfortable down there, limbs sprawled about in ways Dick didn't even think were possible. He just stood there and watched him, still unsure of what to do. Then a familiar voice calling up to him from the bottom of the stairs snapped him back to reality.Deal4 years ago in Humor More Like This
Oh shit, Bruce.
"I'm coming upstairs! We need to have a little talk. Hide whatever you don't want me to see." The slight chuckle in the older man's voice said it as a guy-to-guy joke but to Dick that meant life or death, especially after that shirt fiasco a few weeks earlier. He practically threw his drink onto his night stand before rushing over and trying to wake his sleeping lover.
"Rrrrgh! Come on, Wally! You have to wake up!" he half-whispered half-shouted

"It's Red Arrow." Speedy sighed half-heartedly, deciding it was better to not to waste energy trying to fix the computer system again. Every time he went to the mountain he updated the system, but somehow, it always kept recognizing him as 'Speedy.' Roy had a feeling that a certain little hacker had something to do with it. If he was trying to drop a hint, it wasn't very subtle. There was no way that Roy would be joining their kiddie club. No. Way.
Even if their mountain was where he found himself right now.
"ROY!" An excited voice floated through the air, a yellow and red blur appearing not even a split-second after.
"Shut it, Kidiot. Doesn't 'secret identity' mean anything to you?"
Roy's gruff tone didn't dissuade Wally in the least. He was usually a bit grumpy, a trait which had prompted the affectionate nickname "Angroy", a fact which only further irked the archer. Plus, it had been a while since the speedster had last seen his friend; lately Roy had bee

The chest he'd previously been resting his cheek on sunk in frustration. "I just don't get it we've made out in my room, your room, rooftops, trees... Hey! No violence!"
Robin grumbled, sapphire eyes rolling behind the tinted lenses, "It's not my fault your reflexes suck."
"My reflexes are grea-OW!"
"You were saying?"
Wally's nostrils flared as he exhaled heavily. "The point here-"
"Oh, so there is one?" Robin snorted. It was too easy to aggravate Wally, whose patience's ability to fizzle was just as quick as those feet of his. Could the younger kid be blamed? Not really, considering how cute that grumpy-face was.
"Yes," Wally answered confidently, "and it is that we've Frenched up pretty much anywhere. How's this any different?"

Wally sat looking at his young friend. He was thinking, as he did many times a day, what the thirteen-year-olds true identity was. Kid never saw Robin without something in front of his eyes. Even now, he was wearing sunglasses inside!
"Are you going to keep staring or are you gunna say something?" Robin asked with a smirk.
"Rob, what color are your eyes?" Wally asked without thinking. Robins face showed shock and then embarrassment.
"I can't tell you," he said sheepishly.
"Why not?" Kid whined. "You can always see me."
"It would compromise my identity. Plus you would laugh," Robins blush became even deeper.
"Well now I want to know even more!" the redhead exclaimed. "Come on we're friends right? You can trust me."

Light from flickering flames illuminated the faces of the young team who sat around a warm fire. The soft orange glow complimented the blue light of the moon that watched over them from the inky sky above. The sand from which they sat upon was still warm from the afternoon sun while the ocean breeze that drifted off the waves cooled the night air.
The sound of the ocean waves made themselves at home on the shore and it gave a calming backdrop of noise. Laughter and smiles were exchanged among the group as they bonded. This night was a special night, a rare summer night where no fighting or battling had to be done. Things were quiet in the criminal world, for at least tonight anyway and the team spent their extra time just being with one another.
Except for one member.

Robin got up the next morning totally exhausted. He hadn't slept well the night before, because his mind was preoccupied with thoughts of a particular speedster. Even though he was tired, he went through his morning routine as usual. He took a shower and got dressed, next he reached for is eyeliner. He knew it was a joke among people that if a guy wore eyeliner it was referred to as "guyliner" and it probably meant he was gay. Dick didn't care though it made his eyes look good.
He could remember the first time he wore eyeliner two of his friends Rae and Steph had held him down and put it on. Surprisingly he liked the way it looked. Now he was staring in the mirror thinking that maybe he should wear it when he went to Mount Justice. Maybe Wally would think it looked good. Damn. He was trying really hard not to think about his best friend.

'Okay the clock says there's only 10 minutes left' Wally thought to himself. 'Just concentrate and don't look at the clock for another 5 minutes'
Wally looked at the diagrams and figures his teacher had drawn up on the board, he didn't even know what he was looking at or what the teacher was droning on about, hell he didn't even know what class he was in!
Subconsciously, he turned his head back to the clock; 9 and 45 seconds to go.
Wally placed his head on the table and hoped that the next time he lifted his head it would only be a few seconds for the bell to ring. The reason why he wanted to go home so badly was that Dick had agreed to hang out after school for the first time since the team was formed. They haven't been able to so because between the time of being part of Young Justice, performing as the boy Wonder
Seeing HimThe first time Batman had ever seen Richard Grayson was, contrary to popular belief, not at the circus. It had been a few days before, actually, at night in a dismally gray alleyway.Seeing Him3 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
It had been a cold February night, but there wasn't much snow left on the ground. John Grayson had apparently wanted to grab a late night bite to eat, and his eager eight-year-old son had tagged along, insisting on doing nearly everything his father did like many boys at that age. Most of the night had passed uneventfully; the Joker was quiet, no large robberies, nobody from the rogue gallery had acted up. For Batman, it was almost peaceful.
He had been on a stakeout on a rooftop when he noticed the large man and his tinyit was bordering ridiculous how small Richard Grayson wasson enter the alley, probably a shortcut to their home.
Only, Batman thought, these people must either be very new to Gotham or only be visiting, because anybody who actually lived in Gotham (or anywhere near Gotham) knew
Little DevilDick Grayson was probably going to get killed for this later but at that moment he didn't really care. Bruce had given him and his boyfriend Wally some more freedom but that probably didn't include sleeping in the same bed, him with only a too-big shirt and his partner wearing only pants. The Boy Wonder had been allowed to have a sleepover at Wally's place with Barry supervising and being the boys they were, a food fight broke out a mere two hours after he'd gotten there. This wouldn't have been a problem if Dick's spare clothes hadn't been caught in the crossfire. They were currently in the washer and Barry had been the one to suggest borrowing some of Wally's clothes. When it was time for bed (translation: Wally got sleepy), Dick had merely slipped off the too-big shorts and settled for the giant black T-shirt that read "Little Devil" in bright yellow letters as his nightwear.

I'm on this stupid mathelete trip for a tournament and because of a room mix up, there aren't enough beds for everyone to have their own. So I'm sharing. And I'm not getting a wink of sleep. I don't even know who this guy is. Sure, we're on the same team but we don't talk. At all.
This warmth next to me isn't Wally's. It's not familiar, or comforting, or safe. This breathing isn't his. It's erratic and noisy and just plain annoying. And when he brushes against me because he's a wild sleeper, it's just not the same. Heavy and rough, not smooth and gentle. Instead of soft wisps of breath, my ears are greeted with thundering snores that tear at my eardrums.
I hate it.

When I do, I notice all of the tiny peach scars dotting my palte skin through the soap and my heart falls. They're a constant remind of the real danger I face very night, of the life I've chosen to live, and the mistakes I've made along the way.

The raven haired boy looked up from his holographic computer to see his best friend.
"Why do you want to do that? I thought it gets in the your way when you run." With one eyebrow raised he looked at his friend suspiciously. Wally always made fun of his cape, saying that it smelled weird (don't ask) and how it's going to get caught on something and make him a living piñata.
"Well yea, but who said anything about running with it?"
" Touché." He took off his cape and handed it to the read headed boy, who happily put it on. "So what are you going to do with it?"
With one hand Wally pulled his goggles down so you can barely see his bright green eyes, and with the other he pulled up the cape up right below the goggles. He narrowed his eyes into a glare, and with a low voice he said "I'm Batman."
Robin couldn't help but laugh. It was the best/funniest imitation of the Dark Knight he had ever seen. He then stopped and stared, a smirk forming o
