Under a sky so blueUnder a sky so blue, I shall wait for you,
In that grassy green field where you and I would always meet,
Where we would lie in and talk for hours on end
Of sweet nothings and other silly trends.
Under a sky so blue, I shall wait for you.
As I lay here, in that grassy field, I wonder.
Wonder, wonder, wonder where you are.
O! My heart aches for you and your safe return, this is true,
Under a sky so blue, I shall wait for you.

It’s the same… The same sunrise, the same routine—the same shit everyday now…
The thought arose in Raven’s mind spontaneously, as she watched the sun rise over the bay that ordinary and rather early midsummer’s morning with hooded eyes and a frown on her face. A soft, frustrated sigh passed her lips and she assumed her lotus position on the roof of Titans Tower; she had been feeling this way for the last several weeks: irritable, sluggish and downright fed up with how things were nowadays—it felt as though she was inadvertently stuck in some sort of perpetual time loop.
Since the Brotherhood of Evil had been defeated, Trigon had been slain, and Slade had all of a sudden gone missing; Jump City had become rather peaceful… almost quiet. Too quiet for the empath’s tastes and the funny thing about it was that she’d thought she always was accustomed to it. Even so, she figured, these halcyon days we

Wiccan stirred, as if waking from a thousand year sleep. He was terribly stiff and sore, something he'd expected after tonight's futile battle; and at first it had caused him a great deal of pain to just open his eyes. But he was able to force his broken body to act in spite of the discomfort. Cracking open an eyelid, the black of unconsciousness gave way to indistinct shapes and spots of color.
He blinked oncetwiceto clear his head, and gradually, everything began to focus. Overhead, the offices and huge shopping mall of Downtown Jump loomed; illuminated by faint, pallid streams of light cast by the moon.
Slowly he sat upright, ignoring the excruciating pain that reeled throughout his body. It would be quite a long while before his healing magic could kick in, for his body and blood cells were much too debilitated to perform a self-rejuvenation.
He knew that his teammates were all right; he could sense

Shivering against the biting cold air that blew throughout the dismal atmosphere of her mind, Raven was searching within herself for escape, a release from the excruciating pain she felt in the physical world. But dark thoughts had overwhelmed her psyche far too fast for the young empath to resist, engulfing both mind and body in a suffocating evil that seemed to possess a life of its own, and she could feel the swell of raw Hatred and Rage streaming forth from a familiar conduit deep within her mind.
Subtlety had never been a strong point where her father was concerned.
"It would seem my servant has pushed you to your emotional limits, child, which has left you rather defenseless."
Raven's head snapped up to find Trigon's gargantuan form looming overhead in a tyrannical sense of foreboding and superiority, making the young empath feel smaller than she could have ever been. She shuddered at her father's shadowy aura,

"Do you understand your orders, servant?" the voice of Trigon asked authoritatively. The intensity of his voice shook the ancient walls of the subterranean cavern far below the city. His four glowing red eyes peered down at the solitary dark-haired figure, dressed in a priest's black high-collared cassock, who was kneeling on a precipice below.
"I understand," the Knightmare King answered obediently.
"Good. Now go, and do not fail me."
"As you command," the Knightmare King said dutifully, now standing.
Raven's eyes snapped open with a small, startled gasp; her heart was beating so fast in her breast that seemed as if it was threatening to burst out of her ribcage before she finally relaxed. Currently clothed in a fresh leotard and cloak she'd been meditating on the tower roof hours from the time that dinner ended, her hood down despite the plummeting nighttime temperatures, before she sensed a powerful presence from s

Knight Light pressed his body against the side of the red barn, sighing as he slumped down to the ground exhausted and out of breath. He was alone now and he bitterly resented having to make such a rash and thoughtless decision.
"Why why must it always be like this?" he muttered to himself and slammed his head into the ground, his ragged breath kicking up the dirt around his nostrils, "Why doth everypony think I'm so important that they have to go running off and doing whatever they want "
And why am I the only one that can't get to choose what I want to do? What about what I want?

It was three-forty eight when I watched them roll his half full-of-life body into the ambulance, the wheels groaning with each shift in the concrete terrain. I botched my small steps and ended up tripping over every word he mumbled. Even with heavy anesthesia from earlier that morning, he still managed bisected jokes that made me smile.
I tried not to picture the ambulance racing down overcast streets or hear the fake it's going to be okay voices from the EMTs. He squeezed my arm and I remembered the first hospital run, the first of countless trips.

Knight Light gasped for breath as he slid down the slope of the hill to the foliage below. With deft precision he kicked himself off just before hitting the bottom of the earthen slide and landed squarely on his hooves.
"Knights, where art thou?" he called to his fellows, two of whom slid down shortly after him.
While each of them were dressed similarly in long, sea blue caparisons decorated with their homeland's livery, Knight Light's own outfit differed slightly. He was the only 'knight' to wear a steel helm over his face, while the other knights wore cloth face coverings. Of the two other ponies sliding down to join him; one was a regular pony knight of his homeland while the other was a proud unicorn with a dazzling white coat.

Garfield carried Raven up the slop of the hill, towards a nearby peak where she could look out at the world, at the beauty of the land. She still slumbered, but he could feel it. Today was the day...her last day. He knew the hour was approaching as well, and he wanted her to see the beauty of the world before she died.
He set her down at the peak, still sleeping, as he wiped away the tears he could feel forming. This day of all days, he needed to give her a smile.
Raven woke slowly. "Gar..."
"I know, love. It's...time."
He helped her to sit up, and let her rest against his shoulder. She gazed out across the plains of Africa.
"I know...I always loved it here."

Beast Boy saw the waver in the air, and knew what it was. That dragon was flying while invisible. Which meant...if he followed it, it would lead him to Raven. Determined to his course of action, he took a near tail position, angled so he could track the waver in the air. He didn't have time to stop and call the othes, he would have to do this alone.
Carrion flew around the city several times...but didn't do anything. Finally, as the sun was setting, he turned towards the outskirts of the city. As he flew, he dropped the cloak, and angled downward. A segment of rock shifted, and a tunnel into the earth appeared. Carrion folded his wings and dove into it. Beast Boy followed suit, hot on his tail.
Beast Boy followed Carrion through several twists and turns in the rock, then into a wide open space. Looking forward, he saw a brief flash of purple...followed by a green

"Well, it was true, every word of it. I can understand if you don't feel the same-" Raven interrupted his starting self-pity diatribe with a kiss on the lips. Beast Boy's eyes widened, and he tried to catch his breath when she pulled away.
"I know...and I feel the same."
"Raven..." Beast Boy was stunned. In his mind, fireworks and other celebrations were going off. Not only had he managed to confess to Raven, but she felt the same way, AND she kissed him!
"You're probably wondering why I haven't told you before this..."
"...maybe a little..."
Raven sighed. "It's because I'm dying."

"~Somebody.~" Melvin said, holding hands with the boy next to her. At 16, Melvin was quite the looker, although the boy next to her definatly fell into the nerdy category.
"Ah," Raven said, looking the boy up and down. "SO did you meet him at school, or at work?"
"Work," Melvin said blandly. After the incident with Malchior, Raven and Gar had decided the kids were ready to start training for hero work, and all three had excelled.
"I see," she said. "And what might be your name, young man?"

"Raven! What's wrong? Are you sick?" If Carrion had messed up when he revived her life force...
Raven started to chuckle, then she stood up, tilting her head back and laughing. Garfield could only stare at her. Her hair had grown out over the past year, and she hadn't bothered with cutting it. As she stretched back, laughing, so full of life she seemed to be glowing, he knew he'd never seen her look more beautiful.
As her laughter subsided, she went to the lake and splashed some water on her face before saying, "So that's what he meant..."
Raven looked up at Beast Boy and smiled.

Gwen is catty, conceited and puts herself first. She can show kindness but such a trait skims her surface; often making her appear false. Similarly she can act very much the social butterly but ultimately it's for her own gain, otherwise she'll sulk like a school girl. Gwen is a huge gossip and often exerts herself in conversation; she's a dominant character. She's also playful, shallow, insensitive, a bit ditzy but secretly... awfully cunning.
