Give Me a ReasonWith a loud groan, Superboy pulled himself up and over the high ridge. Happy Harbor was spread out below him, while far above he could see several dark clouds massing. A storm was approaching.
Superboy decided that he didn't care. He was just happy to have climbed all the way up here on his own without using any superpowers. Sure, he could have easily leapt the height of Mount Justice in two or three bounds, but he had wanted to do it this way.
The experience had been just as accelerating as Robin said it would be. He would have to thank the kid later, maybe finally agree to play one of those TV games with him. Sitting with his legs dangling over the edge, he drew in a few deep breaths. He could feel the muscles in his arms vibrating from the exertion and sweat running down his face and back. It felt so good! A small pleasured smile flittered across his face.
"I bet not even Superman's done this without flying or his super strength," Superboy said with a chuckle. Wiping the sweat from
CatchphraseThe sun rose to its peak over Mount Justice, leaping out from behind the clouds to cover Happy Harbor in its warm radiance.

It was a scene of peace and tranquility that was utterly lost on the six individuals who had elected to stay inside the massive compound that once housed the Justice League. One of the many follies of youth is the belief that if you've seen one beautiful vista, you've seen them all.
M'gann M'orzz, or Megan Morse as she was known here on Earth, wasn't particularly interested in the local landscape anyway. Her eyes were focused on the one member of this ragtag group that was as alien as she was, possibly even more. The one person she could identify with.
The one person who didn't seem to notice she existed.
He acknowledged her, of course, but only as a teammate. Even though they lived in this mountain together, she hardly saw him except when attending

He still hadn't noticed.
She'd been standing there for almost ten minutes, and he still hadn't noticed. She knew he was thick, but this level of stupidity was almost dangerous. If she had been an assassin, he'd be dead twenty times over. A couple of times she'd debated saying something to him, just to see what he'd do; maybe spook him a little. Though, if spooking was her goal, she'd have to have a good plan; the boy had reflexes like lightening. No pun intended.
"Two eggs," he mumbled to himself. "Need two eggs." He bee-lined for the fridge and stooped to rummage. He made a displeased noise, the very same noise she found adorable, and mumbled again.
"No eggs." He stood up, very not amused. "Of course there are no eggs." And, with a speed that would have made Flash proud, he was gone. The only clue to where he had gone was the computer recognizing his exit. She didn't know when he'd be back, so she stayed put.
He was back in the kitchen before the computer finished annou

When Clark Kent walks out of the Daily Planet to the diner across the way, he doesn't expect to see the adoptive son of Bruce Wayne there.
Leaning against the counter with arms crossed and a contemplative expression painted on his face, Richard "Dick" Grayson seems to sense Clark's entrance. Snapping out of his thoughts as his head whips toward the door, he straightens the moment his eyes lock with the Justice League member's.
This is more than just coincidence. Clark can tell by the intense look in the boy's striking blue eyes, by the insincere curl of the mouth that i

Something inside of her has broken. Snapped, like a twig.
He holds her close and wills her to trust him. Come on out, he whispers. It's okay. No one is going to hurt you. I won't let them.
Promises in the dark are what he gives to her and he wills them to work. He sits next to her, wrapping his arms around her and stroking his fingers up and down the lengths of her arms. Goosebumps ripple out across her skin, but she still doesn't move. Silent tears fall from her eyes. He asks her if she wants something, and he waits for her reply.
But she's too far gone. Her eyes stare off blankly into a vision that isn't there. Her hands grip his, cold and sweating.
She's been like this for two months. The others have stopped trying to fix her, have given up on trying to heal her. Sure, they'll visit now and again. They'll sit awkwardly in the armchair by the corner and watch her, try to ask her a question and won't receive an answer. Then they'll give up. As easily as

Breaking the Shield
He blamed her for those stupid chinks in his armor. He put too much focus on making sure the most dangerous threat didn't make it through. That was why others like Kaldur and Robin had slipped past his defensive shields so easily... Right? What made it worse was the fact that his attempts were failing miserably. Against all odds and self-made obstacles, Superboy knew he had lost the battle with his emotions yet again.
Still, every injury has two stages. The first is the infliction. That stage cannot be altered or changed once it occurs. The second is the infection. That stage, Superboy had at least some control over. As long as he didn't let his feelings become known, a
One night in Mount Justice.Mount Justice was empty, no one was there. The Fridge was full, a stack of movies lay untouched on the coffee table. The training room was empty, no sounds were heard. Anywhere. Perfection thought Artemis, as she grabbed her large green hoodie, a mug of coffee and her favourite book.One night in Mount Justice.4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

No! Artemis Panicked! Hide, then he'll see no ones here and leave. Yes! Hide!
Artemis grabbed her book and ran to the side of the sofa, slide her self under.
Everthing was going to plan but...no the coffee cup!
Wally walked in, he thought her heard somthing, but it was proablly his imagination, his brain was probally playing tricks from lack of food. I mean he had't ate in like half an hour...but what was that? A mug. He picked up the coffee cup,still warm.

Now, it seemed, she had found a way to tolerate him: Let his hand make its way up her shirt.
Getting in the position that she's in right now-on a pirate ship with her back up against the rocking walls of the boat with Wally on top of her one hand up her shirt and one on her thigh- is kind of fuzzy. In fact this whole situation seems kind of fuzzy but right now Artemis honestly doesn't care.
Because hot damn if that boy isn't good with his hands then she doesn't know anything. She rips off his eyepatch, the one that's probably going to end up being a souvenir, and can't help wondering when she changed her heroing costume into a pirate wench's outfit.
Artemis has made out with a few boys in her day but those times were never like how it is

This is his first patrol with Batman, and Robin is beyond excited.
But he doesn't overly show it and keeps himself calm and collected, ready and waiting for anything and everything. Just like his adoptive Father had taught him.
And it is due to this man's teachings that he realizes something is off sooner than he would have only a month and a half ago.
According to Batman the docks have always been one of the more mysterious places in Gotham, and Robin cannot deny that he might well have been speaking the truth as an almost inaudible hissing-hum starts up in his ears.
Looking up, he sees that the Dark Knight is not behaving any differently, almost like he

Behind the dark haired woman, a big screen showed pictures of the young speedster and the boy wonder in very tender moments. Innocent enough to be shown on the morning news, yet daring enough to make anyone their age jealous by their display of affection.

"Well here goes nothing." said Barry as he knocked on the door.
"It's open!" yelled the red head from the other side of the door.
As the blond-haired man opened the door; he was met with the sight of an extremely messy room. Jumbo bags of chips were scattered all over the room as Wally sat on the only neat thing his bed, casually typing on his laptop. "Wally could you please close that thing; we have to talk."
"Oh no," Wally said as he pushed his laptop to the side, no closing it.
"Why the 'Oh no'?"

Truthfully, things had been fine for the most part. That is, at first.
A closed Gotham City Academy, under construction after a certain giant-robot-versus-superhero incident, gets Dick out of school for the week.
Which in turn means more training and missions with Batman.
Thus causing Dick to be thrilled (in a way that only those who truly know the depths of his and Batman's relationship understand).
The Big, Bad Batman might seem as cold as ice and as emotionless as stone to most everyone else, only showing care to those closest to him in the League (and even then...), but Dick knows better. He's been lucky enough to come to know the man beneath the cowl and beyond the virtually-indestructible walls he's erected.
He's been Bruce's foster son for a little over three years now, and in that time he's grown closer to the man than anyone besides Alfred and most of the Original Seven. And it is for this reas

remember what it feels like
Exhaustion has flooded her senses, leaving her muscles aching and her head spinning. But not so much that she can't still see him, can't still feel his arms against the small of her back.
Closest he's ever been.
(Alarming), isn't it?
She wonders briefly if he knows what a kiss is, if he has any memory, any recollection of one. Any story placed inside his head about a childhood romance that never existed. But she can see in that raw gaze that he has indeed heard of kisses, but one does not exist in any of fictions placed in his mind.
What do I do now?
I've never been (here) before.
The sand twirls around them in tendrils as the dream breaks apart, as they fade from the world of her psychic brain and back to reality. His hair is tossed back by a ripple of wind that strikes his jagged bangs. A smile that conceals both happiness and confusion lights his lips. She tries to smile back, as her
