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

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

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?

Dad PromisedSummary: An Invader Zim one-shot. Dib stays up, hoping his father will come home like he promised. In another time, a boy named Mem does the same thing.Dad Promised6 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
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."

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.

"We were thinking of naming the baby after Fred, actually."
George froze in the process of pouring two Firewhiskys. "Oh," he said after a moment, standing up stiffly and handing a glass to Bill.
Bill seemed to take this as a bad reaction. "Of course, we haven't decided for sure yet," he said quickly. "The baby could be a girl, after all. And if it is a boy, we still wouldn't name it after Fred if, you know...you object or anything."
"Well, honestly I just hadn't thought of—" George suddenly blinked. "'If I object?' Why would I object?"
Bill shrugged, looking supremely awkward. "Well—you know. Fleur and I, and the rest of the family—we sort of feel like you have...dibs on Fred's name, if you wanted to give it to your own son."
"But I'm not having a son," George said, feeling rather stupid.

"So, what is fanfiction anyway?" Stan asked, standing on his toes to watch over Kyle's shoulder as he brought the website up.
"Basically it's where fans of a show--or book or movie or whatever--write stories and stuff about the show and post them for other people to read on the Internet."
"Pffft. That's stupid," Cartman muttered from the floor, where he and Tweek were playing a desultory card game. "Why'd anybody want to waste their time writing stupid stories about TV shows and stuff?"
"Well, a lot of it is pretty bad," Kyle admitted, clicking on the "Cartoons" section of the fanfiction site. "But some of it is really cool. I'm reading this really funny Terrance and Phillip story--I swear, the show should hire the guy who

"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."

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

Seven-year-old Albus Potter had a secret, and it was eating him up inside.
He couldn't tell his mum or dad, or James or Lily. They were the ones he was hiding it from. They would be furious if they found out. This was a betrayal of the whole family; he was sure to become an outcast if they knew the truth about him.
Eventually he decided to ask Uncle Ron for advice. Uncle Ron wouldn't careprobably. Maybe. Hopefully.
He laughed after Albus had finally managed to whisper exactly what was bothering him. "You really think your mum and dad are going to care about something like that, Al? Really?"
He shrugged, feeling his face burn. "I dunno. Maybe? You know how Mum gets about stu

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?

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."

ForgivenessPercy Weasley was in a dark place.Forgiveness2 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
Realistically, all he had to do was turn on his bedside lamp and his room would fill with light. But it wasn’t the physical realm that concerned him.
His mind was in a dark place. His very soul was shrouded in black, cloaked in despair, sheathed in the bleak absence of hope.
He hadn’t spoken to Audrey in nine months. Who knew if she was even waiting for him? He certainly didn’t. It had been even longer since he’d spoken with his family. His last attempt at that had earned him a smart slap on the cheek and a resounding chewing out courtesy of his sister. The worst part about that last meeting was that he knew that he had absolutely deserved it and more.
Life at the Ministry was hellacious. Editing those anti-Muggle pamphlets was killing a part of him, but it had come down to killing a part of himself or killing all of himself, and he wasn’t yet gone enough to want death.
For the moment, Percy was conten

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

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.

I stood off to the sidelines of our little backyard party, half-hidden in the shade between the fence and the stage that the Fireside Girls had constructed. I was a a bit weary at the moment (forty hours without sleep will do that to a boy) and just taking a short break from the festivities, the closest of the dancers several yards away and the loud music made indistinct by my contemplative mood.
My attention, meanwhile, was set on a red rose lying on my open palm.
I held it up to my face and examined it; it was slightly crumpled, but overall in excellent shape for having survived a trip across the Atlantic Ocean and half of the continent

Hermione checked the address on her clipboard again and pursed her lips, looking up at the home of Draco Malfoy and his family.
She was secretly glad that it wasn't Malfoy Manor; she did not want to admit it, but part of her dreaded the thought of ever seeing that place again. This house was just as stately but not as large, and probably at least a few centuries younger. The property was surrounded by tall, flowery hedges, and the lawn itself was immaculately groomed with shady trees scattered about. The porch was bright white and the front door was made of a dark, handsome wood with a phoenix-head doorknocker.
Hermione drew herself up and knocked three times. She paused for a moment as she heard someone coming.
