Saturday Morning Cartoons (2 June 2012)Young Justice episode "Bloodlines"
Young Justice: Invasion. Alternatively Young Justice: Yes, With the Actual Characters From the Comic Book This Time. Will Arrowette be replacing Artemis soon?
Okay, first off: Impulse is hilarious. As was Beast Boy in his brief appearance. This episode was overall funny, despite the rather dark revelations. If I understand this right, Bart came back because Barry was supposed to die, which apparently was going to cause an apocalyptic-type event (how? Why is Barry so important?) But even though he saved him, the future is still looking dark. I'm getting Dollhouse flashbacks.
In the side plot, we find out that Roy and Cheshire are the worst parents ever and that Lian is a budding psychopath. And they found the real Roy. My guess is he'll be evil!Arsenal. Heck, maybe the Light wanted him rescued.
I think next episode is supposed to be the last one for a while...here's hoping it will be good.

"Well, this is unexpected," Dib muttered, wringing out his hair-scythe as Zim held out his umbrella to encompass his human companion.
He couldn't see it when Zim was alone on the planet. He couldn't see it when Skoodge was there too, or when they were battling Tak. But the first time Dib actually saw Zim around other Irkens, he began to realize that the two of their lives had actually been a lot more similar than he had ever expected.
"And another thing—I'm getting the bed!"
Dib growled to himself, taking out a set of fresh sheets as GIR ran around in the background, laughing a

Sandra O'Neil stumbled and fell, the huge platter of nachos in her hands spilling all over the ground.
Her daughter Zita was quickly kneeling beside her, pulling her to her feet. "Hurry, Mom, get up. The guards are-AIGH!"
The mother and daughter both let out screams of pain as a whiplash of energy seared across their backs. They fell on their faces, gasping for air, while above them two voices snickered.
"Get up," the first Irken snapped, glaring down at them with her malicious red eyes.
"Yeah," her sidekick, a purple-eyed male, said, pulling back the laser-whip to dangle lightly from his three-fingered hand. "We're not not-paying you to not w

Instantly the hum of the engines changed, and the whiteness outside dissolved to the beautiful velvety blackness of the normal space. Almost half the screen was taken up with a picture of the planet below, a small glowing marble of swirling pink and red clouds over blue land and lime green oceans. It was the first living planet Dib had seen since leaving his home world, vastly different from Earth, but still calling out to him with its own strange and alien beauty.
Dib got about three seconds to take in all this wonder before something blasted into the ship, knocking him out of his seat and smashing his jawbone into the control panel.
Dib jumped t

Having already finished the Danville Standardized Achievement Exam and checked his answers twice, Phineas sighed, looked at the clock and then towards the girl sitting beside him. He paused, eyes lingering for a moment, then began to absentmindedly doodle on his cover sheet. He had ten different sketches of her finished before the teacher called for pencils down.
"Nothing is gonna stop me from going to this dance, you got that? !" Isabella screamed, shaking the older girl roughly by the collar. Candace's eyes widened as she wondered: what kind of girl got this crazy over a boy?

"No, Ron. L-M-N-O."
"Elemeno isn't a letter. It's L as in love, M as in magic, N as in nogtail and O as in owl."
Ron blinked. "Oh. Sorry."
"That's alright," Mrs. Weasley said wearily, waving her handit was the sort of mistake she had correct for each of his older brothers at one point. "Keep going."
"Um, L...M...N...O...um, O...O "
Ron jumped as Mrs. Weasley sighed, standing up. "Just a moment!" She turned back to her youngest son. "Just work on it until I get back," she instructed.
She left the room, trudging upstairs to where Ginny was screaming from her and Ron's bedroom. Ron turned back to the kitchen ta

The five-year-old boy stared at the clock on the wall, scratching his fork thoughtlessly against his plate, his feet kicking air about a half-foot above the floor.
6:45 PM. That meant he was forty-five minutes late already, and that there were only forty-five more minutes left for him to get home.
He scowled at the clock. Then he jumped as he heard the front door open, his eyes gong wide.
"Dad?!" He jumped down from the chair and rushed into the living room---causing him to collide with his mother on the threshold, falling onto his backside.
"Oh! Membrane Membrane, you need to be more careful!"
The boy ignored her, climbing to his feet. "Is Dad home?!"
She sighed. "No, dear, that was just me letting the dog in."

Irken food was disgusting. It was almost as bad for humans as Earth food was for Irkens, though it was actually edible if you could manage to keep it down. Good luck with that, though-it tasted awful, practically burned a hole in your esophagus and made your insides twist and scream in agony. You'd have to be mad or desperate to try to eat it.
Dib thought about this ironically as he leaned back in his chair with his mouth wide-open, shaking the empty Irken chip bag to meek out the last few burning crumbs from the bottom.
Throwing the empty bag to the floor-which was already so littered with them that one could hardly even walk-Dib sighed and leaned even farther back in the pilot's chair, c

The door to Harry's study was ajar, and Ginny knocked lightly before sticking her head in. "Harry? It's almost time for dinner."
He jumped before turning, a slightly awkward smile on his face. "Be right there, dear. Justfinishing up a bit of paperwork."
She quirked her eyebrow, entering the room. "Oh, surely that can wait until later, can't it? You don't want your food to get cold."

"Gambling?" Percy said, looking up from the twins' parchment in shock. "Does Mum know about this?"
"Of course not," said Fred.
"But who cares? Now what should we put you down for?" asked George.
"Nothing! I'm not gambling!"
"Oh, come on, Perce. Don't be such a spoilsport."
"Yeah! Think how fun the match will be if there's a chance of getting some gold out of it."
"I enjoy Quidditch for its skill and sportsmanship," Percy said pompously, drawing himself up to his full not-quite-eleven-year-old height. "I don't need to waste my money on stupid bets."
Fred frowned. "Really? Well, then I guess we should justjust"
He screwed up his face and drew back, then covered his mouth and made like he was sneezing; however, instead of an "ACHOO!" he let out a "BAWK-BAWK!"
Hold My TongueSummary: A Phineas and Ferb fanfic. Ferb can talk to Phineas about anything almost. (One-sided Ferb/Vanessa, one-sided Isabella/Phineas, but largely a family/friendship story.)Hold My Tongue5 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
I can't talk to him about this.
It seems so odd just to think that. If there's anyone I can always talk to about anything, it's him. He's my best friend, my brother. I talk to him more than I talk to anyone, but on this topic, I'm totally mute. More so than usual.
You may have noticed I don't talk much. I don't like talking; it's somehow rather awkward for me, I've never liked doing it, and anyway, it seems pointless. So much of what people talk about is useless; when I listen to Candance on the phone, she talks ceaselessly, yet all I hear is idle chatter, the same words endlessly repeated, with little or nothing of interest passing from her lips to Stacy's brain. And with Phineas around, I've found that it's a
Johnny And Dib MeetIt was early but already dark out when Johnny C. came to the park and sat down on the stone bench. He was wearing a black shirt with a picture of Happy Noodle Boy with a purple background. The long sleeves had thick black and white stripes. His pants, like his sleeves, had thick black and white stripes. Black leather boots came up to his knees and they steel, cloven toes. The slight wind made the two strands of nearly-black blue hair that fell in front of his face go into his eyes, causing him to blink.Johnny And Dib Meet7 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
Johnny absentmindedly turned a plastic spork over in his hands. He had just gone to the Taco Smell that they had there. It was the first time that he had had tacos in this city and it took him a long time to find the place, but he was glad that he hadnt run into any trouble while there. He really only wanted a taco and not some idiot calling him something or pushing him. On the way out he forgot to throw out the spork and kept it.
He looked up at the dark sky. He could only see a

Dennis remembers that night, but only vaguely. He was sleeping on the floor of Aunt Ida's living room; he and Colin alternated who got the couch. Someone was shaking him, and he moaned, turning over and pulling his blanket over his head.
"Dennis!" Colin's voice was frantic, but with a certain ring of excitement. "Wake up!"
Dennis moaned again. "What?"
"You won't believe what's happened! Listen..."
Dennis tried to listen, sort of, but he was falling in and out of sleephe caught the name "Geoffrey," who was one of Colin's school friends, and something about Hogwarts...his mind was too dozy to put the pieces together, but he remembers how the conversation ended.
"...but you don't come, okay? I just wanted you to know. And I guess you can have the couch

TAKE ME OUT TO THE QUOD-PITCH
By Ginny Potter
I don't "get" Quodpot.
I'm a Quidditch girl. I, my husband and most of my brothers were on the Gryffindor team in school. I went on to play Chaser with the Holyhead Harpies for five seasons. My three kids have each plastered their room with Quidditch posters and love playing with their cousins. My parents' house is always filled with arguments about whether the Falcons really have the best Beaters or if the Cannons do, in fact, have some infinitesimal chance of making the Championship this year.
So I understand being passionate, or even a little obsessed, with Quidditch. But Quodpot?

"I honestly can't believe you're doing this," Hermione said, peering over the top of her book as Ron scribbled messily on the parchment application.
"Yes, you've mentioned that once or twice already." He paused, scratching his quill against his temple and smearing ink in his hair. "'Greatest fault?' Why would they expect me to list that? What do I put?"
"That you're irresponsible enough to try taking Auror classes without even finishing your primary education!"
"'Works too hard sometimes.' They should buy that, right? Ha, 'Summarize your experience in six inches.' I'll just write in big letters, 'I KILLED YOU-KNOW-WHO, YOU IDIOTS!'"

Arthur was slowly cleaning out his desk, getting ready for his move to the Office for the Detection and Confiscation of Counterfeit Defensive Spells and Protective Objects.
He was feeling a touch nostalgic, to be honest. He had always loved working for the Misuse of Muggle Artifacts Office.
He took the last spark plugs out of his drawer and placed it carefully in the box with his other things, turning his attention to the top of his desk. There wasn't much there that needed moving, except for the picture of his family. He picked it up for a moment and smiled to himselfmore nostalgia, as the photo was a few years old, with Molly having a different hairstyle and Ron being

I saw him skulking around outside the house, hiding in front of the building next door, back against the wall, peeking over every so often as though he thought he was catching me when my back was turned. I was still there, of course, but truth be told I wasn't paying him that much attention; I saw him as others might see someone out of the corner of their eye, but without letting him distract me much from what I was doing. Which, to be fair, was pretty much nothing.
I had connected to the Earth "Internet," a network of technology that struck me both as incredibly brilliant and pitifully primitive. The technology, of course, was nothing c
