The Superhero EraThe Superhero Era5 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
Superheroes have only been on Earth for only a short while, but when they came they made an impact that will never be matched. Who could match Superman, the Kryptonite Son, a savior? How about an Amazonian woman that is literally a Goddess? Or a man that doesn't have powers but studies his enemies and his allies; he knows what to do if something goes wrong.
It's not for certain when "Superheroes" picked off of the ground; it could have been when more villains started populating more cities. After all if there were no villains there would be no need for heroes. Superman appeared fourteen years ago in Metropolis, and it wasn't like he couldn't catch attention. He was a flying man in tights with a cape, it was hard to miss. The papers were flooded with news about Metropolis's hero, the world's savior.
It was nearly 18 months after Superman's first appearance than Lex Luthor appeared as a threat. He was Superman's first enemy and to this day he remains the high priority to Superman. He's o
TMNT-ScarsApril O'Neil traced the long scar along the back of Donatello's arm. It wasn't very noticeable...but it was there. It was funny how April could look over his body like that and find another scar she hadn't noticed before. She'd trace it with her finger and silently wonder how he got it. And as though he read her mind, he would always tell her.TMNT-Scars2 years ago in Romance More Like This
'Oh, that? I got that when I was wrestling Raph when we were six. He through me a little too hard at the wall...'
'That old thing? I got that saving Mikey from a cave in...we both came out alight but the cut was pretty bad...'
'I got that one when I was working on the first prototype of the T-Phones. I had crossed the wires and got a good shock. Ended up falling over and hitting my head on the tip of my table. Splinter was so scared...'
Every scar she found, it was like she discovered something new about him. About his past. She never would have guessed he had his first chemistry set at the age of six or that he had even tried to visit the surfac
TMNT-Red LipstickApril had never really been into make up. And even if she wore some, it was always subtle. But there was one thing of lipstick she had that she kept for special occasions.TMNT-Red Lipstick2 years ago in Romance More Like This
"It's my rebellious look," she'd joke. "When I want to be wild. Something I'm not." Despite that though, Donatello loved to see her in it. It was a shock to see the bright red lipstick on her pale face, but it suited her. In a weird way, that is. It made her hair seem redder, her eyes bluer, her lips fuller...
When she realized how much he loved it, April tried to wear it around him now and then. It was a thrill to come home and see the red on her face. Feel her lips on his skin, leaving kiss-y marks and trails behind...
Donatello enjoyed finding the marks left behind on his face, head, and skin. It was like a little piece of April with him when he worked, when he was out and about...it became his favorite thing: coming home to see if she had the red surprise on her lips and welcome the fire-y kisses they gave.

"Must I do this?" she asked, clearly annoyed. "I mean, is this really mandatory?"
Alucard grinned from where he was standing behind the camera with the rest of the Hellsing crew. "Come now Master, it can't be that bad," then his eyes glinted with a dark intent, "Not to mention we're going against those Iscariot assholes!"
She glared at him at the corner of her eye, something that would most likely turn anyone to ice. She didn't seem convinced.

Corey walks far from Laney and tells Kin and Kon, "I have a plan, that may or may not go well, depending on the situation." Kon gets a suspicious look, "What are you suggesting?"

Karai stood before the doorway to her father’s chambers. This wasn’t going to be easy. Ever since they arrived in New York, her father had shown nothing but dedication to his vendetta against his old enemy, Hamato Yoshi. A little too much dedication, as far as she was concerned. She understood his pain. Hamato Yoshi (or Splinter, as he was calling himself these days), had killed her mother when she was an infant, destroying their family forever. Her father never forgot that day and he wouldn’t let her forget it either, no matter how much she wished he would leave the past in the past. Killing Splinter would not bring her mother back, but the Shredder didn’t care. To him, loose ends were unacceptable. If destroying Splinter and his army of mutant turtles would bring her father back to her, so be it. All she had to do was get him to listen for a few minutes.
Taking a deep breath, Karai stepped into the chamber of her fa

The very reason behind his being was that he was a shadow, which encompassed all and cast a shadow over everything below. But still, he wondered. His master used fear as his ultimate weapon, and appropriately, his symbol was a creature of the night; the very amplifier of fear, the substance of nightmares, the mask which hides the monsters that prowl through this sinful city. But, his student's symbol was one that summoned neither fear nor respect from his enemies or his allies. A helper at best, a source of cruel laughter at worst. No matter how much one tries to run, no matter how swift they think they are, they can never escape their shadow...Nightwing: The Animated Series Episode 13 years ago in General Fiction More Like This

Corey exclaims, "No, this cannot be happening! How am I going to get lyrics now?" He begins to hear footsteps and quickly puts the diary down.

April O'Neil stared at the one spot in the grassy field beneath the drooping arms of a willow tree. To anyone but her, it was just a spot in the grass. Nothing out of the ordinary at all. Just a stupid spot under the stupid shade of a stupid tree in the middle of a stupid field on the outskirts of stupid New York City.
The red head had been sitting in front of the spot for probably an hour or so. Maybe longer. She tended to lose track of time when she visited this place. Not that she minded, but whenever she brought a visitor they didn't seem to understand why she needed her time there.
Whenever someone asked her why she came to that spot, she always replied with: 'to visit a friend.' Not that they would understand. Not that anyone would ever understand. She could tell people why she was there and who she was visiting, but no o

Still AliveThere would always be something comforting about the way a pub just enveloped you, like a warm, dark, slightly smelly cocoon of alcohol and company for any misery you've been harboring. John hadn't really been a pub goer, even before the war. In Afghanistan, a cold beer was a treasure, and as it often goes with treasures, very hard to come by, and very sought after.Still Alive3 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
After his term, when he had finally had those drinking buddies, the sacred position you entrust only to those you know will clean you up, take you home, and put the resulting lunacy on YouTube, the pub was still oddly foreign.

Ever since what happened to her dad, she didn’t want anything to do with big school activities like sporting events or academic events. She just felt bored with everything.

Entry Five: Fox in Socks and a Tea Party
Dearest Darling-est Diary,
Today was the most fantabulous day ever! I had a tea party with Seras Victoria, during which I wore a frilly pink dress and a bonnet. Also invited were Tigger, Dressy Bessie, and Snookums, the stuffed cat I've had since I was five. I wanted to invite my imaginary friend Scotty T. T., but sadly, he was otherwise engaged. We each had a cup of decaf Earl Grey, and Seras was kind enough to get out that lovely pink flower-print china that I've so had my eye on.
After that, I decided that I had been far too harsh on Anderson the other night, so I traveled to Rome and apologized. I was so overcome with grief at my own rude and uncouth behaviour that I threw myself at his feet and begged for mercy with tears streaming down my pitiful face. Father Anderson, in his most kind and forgiving spirit, spared me my wretched existence. I am overcome with gratitude, and I shall sing his praise

The want to breath was also gone; even as her lungs began to burn her body seemed pretty content with not fighting that battle.
