CHAPTER ONE: CALM BEFORE THE STORM
In the dark, in the endless night between the stars, something waited.
Far above Equestria, beyond the life-giving warmth of Celestia's sun and the cool light of Luna's moon, lay only a darkness as still and silent as the night before the first dawn. Of all the beings on the blue and green globe below only two had ever gone so far from their homeworld. And when Celestia and Luna satisfied themselves that nothing lived beyond their own beloved world, they ignored it. They believed it empty and devoid of life.
Lifeless, yes; empty, no.
Something that did not live, that had never lived, floated, and searched, and waited with the patience of oblivion itself.
Then, silently, it stopped in its track, as if it found what it was looking for. And quietly, without fuss, it made its way towards the unsuspecting world.

Sam Kane and Damian Wayne trudged along a woodland path near Wayne Manor. Their dogs, Titus and Barkley, followed.
"We are NOT lost!" grumbled Damian.
"It's cold, and it's wet, and I want to go home!"
"It's just a walk in the woods."
"Well I can't be on patrol and I don't want to be cooped up in the Cave!"
"That's a first!"
Damian glowered at Sam, the younger boy was looking cranky. He was also pulling burrs out of Barkley's fur and the shaggy dog was struggling. "You need the exercise!"
"I exercise enough, Damian! Now we're going to be stuck out here until morning..."
">TT< The Manor is this way!"
"You said that three intersections ago...why does your dad have these many paths?!"
"For running and skiing."
Sam wrapped his coat around him, it was an October night, with a large moon overhead. But the manor was not seen. A low sound was heard in the woods. Barkley and Titus started growling. "There's something here...."

PROLOGUE: IN THE BEGINNING
Once upon a time, in another universe, there was darkness.
It was the era before reality became defined, at the point before existence that constitutes all came to be, in the time before the very concept of Time itself existed, when the Universe was anything BUT.
There was nothing, nothing but an absolute, lifeless darkness that stretched infinitely in all directions.
And for a time, it was the way things were.
Then, at an unspecified point of history, a spark was struck, either by design, or accident.
And there was Light.
It was WHITE Light of Creation. In later days that point of history would come to be known in many names: Genesis, The Big Bang, the Dawn of Time, the Carving of the Heavens, Alpha, the Beginning of Everything, and so on.
The absolute darkness in the universe was replaced by the Light, and for a while, it filled all of reality with its brilliance.
From this beginn
All is gone(In memory of the victims of the 7/20/2012 shooting in Aurora, Colorado)All is gone3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The morning comes, a pale sun brightens my room
and in shock and pain, I awake from a dark nightmare
But I understand that the void that fills this room
also occupies my heart, and it's more than I can bear
Gone are the lives of the dreaming innocent
Gone are the lives of the fighting, strong-willed men
All who followed the myth into a room for entertainment
and fell victim to the atrocities of a madman
All is gone...
Mourn the great loss of those who believed
Pray for those who face the trails of death
Despite our efforts, such pain cannot be relieved
as we watch our friends choke on their own breath
All is gone...
Yet, with all that's happened, we should not lose hope
For a hero taught us to have faith and to endure
So many are the deaths with which we need to cope
But we shall not let them become the poison to our cure
The lost lives will be remembered as heroes
Who have saved ours and taught us to live

It was for the first Kid Flash, and the only Wally West he ever wanted to know. The speedster pulled down his cowl, he couldn’t turn on the platform as a hero, he had to do it as a loving family member.In Memory2 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
Batman ghosted into the room, effectively scaring the bejezus out of Barry. The big bat put a hand on his colleague’s shoulder. “Turn it on, Barry.”
The blonde shook his head, “I can’t. It just doesn’t feel right.”
“How so?” Batman pondered.
“We’ve had death scares before. Artemis was just undercover. I was just stuck in the Speed Force. Clark was just in another dimension. How do we know he isn’t dead?” Barry was about ready to pull his hair out.
“Barry, we saw him disappear before our eyes. He’s gone,” Batman tried

"I missed you."
Remus sighed before closing the book he'd been trying to read. "I know, Pad," he said, looking over at the other Gryffindor boy who was facing him on the couch. "You've been telling me since we got back to Hogwarts. Three weeks ago."
Before Christmas holiday, Remus' mother has written him asking if he would come home for the break. Apparently, his grandmother was coming to visit and wanted to see him. Of course, he couldn't say 'no' to her and had informed his friends of his change in plans.
Time had gone by quickly while he was at home. His grandmother had visited a few days after he returned and had stayed with them until he left for Hogwarts. Unlike his Muggle grandmother, Grannie Jane was fun and energetic, which kept Re

And today it was given to Wally and Robin. The reason? They both disobeyed Batman's orders on a mission of course.
"This is all your fault." Said Wally angrily, the bucket of soup on one hand with the mop in the other.
"How so?" Robin glared at him behind shaded eyes.
"You're the one who wanted to go further into the building!"
"Yeah and we also got the information we needed! PLUS, you're the one who decided to go with me! I told you that you could have stayed behind."
"Yeah, and I didn't want you to get hurt if anything happened."
"Aww, you're so sweet." Smirked Robin and Wally glared away.
"We better get stared " he said in a softer tone and Robin agreed.
"The faster this gets done the better." Said Rob who then made his way towards the living room. The boy's jobs were simple. Clean the living room, kitchen, training quarters and whatever else they could before everybody got back
Of Kisses and Crowbars: part 1 The music was blasting to the point where people were screaming to hear the sound of their own voices. Many of the Gotham Academy students formed a mob around each of the blaring speakers, moving their bodies and pounding their fists to the beat. Other students shouted at each other by the walls of the super-sized gym, flirting and laughing and stuffing themselves with the free pizza.Of Kisses and Crowbars: part 14 years ago in Drama More Like This

Just moments before, Wally West had been attacked by mythical creatures he believed not to even exist and almost died via drowning. He is a semi-priest, believing in the ways of God, but not always sticking to the righteous path, and had thought that he did not even belong on a pirate ship. He thought that he had a firm belief of what was right and what was wrong and could stay clear of temptation he knew was truly not good for him. But as he stands in the cool, shallow water that hardly reaches his already soaked kneecaps this night, he can't help but think-
I am so going to hell.
In front of him is one of the mermaids that had just tried to kill him, seemingly frozen in place, staring back at him intensely. Wally can't help but stare back at the beautiful creature with its raven hair whose wet strands cling tightly to its forehead, slightly covering its deep, aqua eyes widened with fear that shone brightly even in the dimly lit air.

Delicious Candy Canes
Sirius was keeping an eye on everyone at the table, making sure to stand before anyone could leave. The next part of their present was meant to be given out right after breakfast and he wanted to make sure everyone knew whose idea this was.
So, when he noticed that the third year Ravenclaw boy was about to get up, he jumped to his feet and onto the seat. "Present time!" he exclaimed and was grateful for Dumbledore when the headmaster gently grabbed McGonagall's arm before she could complain.
Once everyone was giving him their full attention, he pulled something out of his pocket with a huge grin. "Who wants a candy cane?"
"Are they safe?" Lily asked when some of the younger students raised their hands in excitement.
"I highly doubt Mr. Black would offer dangerous sweets to his professors, Miss. Evans," Professor Dumbledore said with a small wink.

"What are we going?" Remus whispered as he and the rest of the Marauders slowly made their way down the dark hallway. It was late at night and the lack of a moon meant they could hardly see where they were going. Thankfully, there didn't seem to be anyone up at this time of night, not even a professor.
Sirius sidled up to the young werewolf, wrapping an arm around his shoulders. "I told you, Remus," he said quietly, smiling at James who was walking in front of them and now turned around so now he was walking backwards. "I found this brilliant new secret. You're gonna love it!"
The second year rolled his eyes and pushed the slightly taller boy away. Sirius had told him about the secret but refused to tell any of them aside from James it appeared where the secret was located.
Remus had been weary of venturing out of the common room that night, especially since they'd just gotten caught out of bed les

Which means if the camera lands on us, the entire nation will see my now red eyes, puffy from constant crying. Alfred and Bruce had to literally drag me out of bed to get me to go anywhere. I just wanted to stay in my room, alone, until I felt better; a basketball game was definitely not on my list. One of the burdens of living with Bruce, unfortunately.

Everyone was yelling at Robin expect the Legionnaires and Cyborg. Ever since Cyborg met Brainiac 5 he never trusted him and he was going to find out why.
Brainiac 5 was walking with his head down facing the floor and he really wanted to talk with someone. He usaully talked with Saturn Girl, but she wasn't there.
Raven was walking in the same hallway and she was reading a book. They walked closer and closer until CRASH!
"Hey watch it!" Raven yelled getting up from the floor.
Brainy sat on the floor and didn't look up at her. Raven tried to make him look up, but he still kept looking down at the floor.
"Ummm." Raven sat back on the floor and saw that he was about to cry.
"Hey....I didn't mean to yell at you."
He just blinked and finally looked up at her. He didn't say anything he just sat up and leaned against

She was so close that his hands were touching her stomach, "Why don't you want me to spy on you anyways?"
Lighting Lad's thoughts: "boy that was stupid!"
Lighting Lad was surprised when he saw Raven turn around like a whip and started to walk back to her bed.
Lighting Lad thought she only turned away for Two reasons
1. He wasn't wearing a shirt
2. He was wearing pants with little lighting bolts (that were probably made for a second grader.)
Raven sat down on her bed and flipped threw her book and then said, "Well, I don't like being disturbed when I'm trying a new spell."

Kiss of a Mermaid Part 5Two of the captain's strongest minions carries Wally's limp body and dump it into a natural ditch about a mile away from the torturing site. They toss it in without the slightest bit of care, grunting as their menial task was completed. They stare after the body, feeling a bit of remorse; he had been their crewmate after all, even if for only a short period of time. Alas, it is short lived and soon the feeling subsides, their backs turning, their bodies stalking off into the night.Kiss of a Mermaid Part 54 years ago in Drama More Like This
Cold, rough, echoing silence, smell of dirt, blow of wind, the feeling of a broken heart.
They are the first things to come to Wally as he slowly regains consciousness. He grabs at the dirt beneath his long fingers, opens his jade eyes once more, and takes in gasps of air that he thought he would never partake in again.
He struggles, but succeeds in bringing himself to his knees and runs his hands over his filthy body. It's dark and his vision is still blurry but his fing
Scarves Chapter 5Once again I find myself waking up to a screaming body, immobilized by pain. It's a bad habit that needs to stop. Now. The sound of shards of glass sprinkling onto what must be a street prompts me to open my eyes. I stare up into not a blue sky, but the sight of the burning remnants of what was my home just a few moments earlier. Pieces of memory flood back to me; running, Mason grabbing Ea, a push, a hellish burning in my side, falling-crashing.Scarves Chapter 54 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

Which I do have.
About two minutes ago, Alfred sent me a text message (I know, Alfred texts?) about Dick. Alarms and red alerts had sprung up in my mind automatically before he had even told me what was wrong. It's a reflex I've developed over the past few years. He'd said that Dick was staying home from school today because he was sick. Sick. Dick never gets sick.
So I decided to skip school and pay him a visit. Hey, don't look at me like that. Visiting and taking care of the love of your life is a helluva good reason to miss out on boring, 3 hour long lectures and teachers who hurl heavy chalkboards at your face for whispering to your neighbor. But seriously, I'm worried, really worried, and I have to see him. Maybe I'll got to school after that, but I'm not making any promises.
A few seconds later, I arrive at the steps of Wayne

That's what I am, sprawled on my back on the soft couch in my living room, unable to sleep in my own bed. I don't usually have nightmares. And I definitely don't cry. I'm the big ball of warm sunshine on the team and if I stop smiling, they'll know shit is up. I haven't had a nightmare in years but I just did tonight and it's the worst I've ever had.
To keep it simple, Dick died.
The mere sight of his small body, limp and lifeless on the ground before me, killed me inside. I wouldn't be able to hold or touch or kiss or hear him ever again. It hurt so much that not only did I cry in the dream, but in reality as well. I woke up to a cool, wet feeling on my cheek and when I looked, my pillow was soaked through completely. That's scary. In more ways than one. Every time I close my eyes I see it, clear and fresh and torturing.
I hear something creak open, quiet footsteps, and in the next few seconds Dick appears from around the corner dressed in his large T-shi

I've been to a few, some longer than I would have liked, but never alone with Wally. Never with only me and him navigating through the walkways and brightlights, occaisionally joining hands and laughing together about things only we would find funny. When he called me the other night about it I was skeptical to go. Usually with things like this, he'd invite the whole team. But he kept begging and begging and begging so what was I supposed to do?
Now I'm watching him sit down on a stool at a watergun game booth from the side with a goof grin splashed onto his lips. Once he gets settled and his fingers grip the handles, the smile dissolves into a frown of pure concentration and his eyes narrow with determination. Anyone would think it's silly for him to get so serious over something like this, but for me.... I know him and it makes absolutely perfect sense. Plus, it's kinda sexy.

Scarves Chapter 6I don't realize I'd fallen asleep until I wake up from nothing. I'm lying down on something, staring into what must be the underside of a building or bridge, the smoothness and cool of it telling me it's a slab of stone. I use my elbows as leverage and push myself up, then use the palms of my hands to keep me there. Everything around me-beams, boulders, wood-is covered in a light veil of darkness, only broken by the light of the nearby fire. There's someone sitting in front of it, poking it with a stick, and I don't have a single doubt that it's Fintan. Suddenly I become aware of a dry, stickiness on my cheeks. I raise my fingers to the skin and recognize the feeling immediatley. They're dried tears.Scarves Chapter 64 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

That was strange. In the six years they'd been living in Gryffindor Tower, there had never been a DO NOT DISTURB sign on their dorm door. James and Sirius exchanged mischievous looks before the Chaser tried turning the doorknob.
"I can't believe they've actually locked us out," James said with a smirk and both boys pulled out their wands. Sirius whispered the unlocking charm before James tried opening the door again, only to fail. "They used Colloportus!"
Sirius shoved his best friend out of the way and tried the unlocking charm once again but with the same results. "Do you have a hair pin?" he asked, kneeling down to try and look through the keyhole.
But before James could answer, the door opened revealing Remus and Peter both standing there, looking at their friends curiously. "What are you two doing?" the Prefect asked, stepping aside so they could walk into the room.

He's not here.
I land on the floor perfectly and effortlessly as one of my projectile weapons explodes when it lodges into a sparring dummy several feet away. The heavy gust of wind from it blows my dark cape around me and I brush it out of the way as I stand. I'm in the training room, sharpening my skills for whenever I'm called for another mission. It's better to have extra preparation than none at all. Or at least...that's what I keep telling myself. The real reason I'm training this late at night is because I can't get something, or rather someone, out of my mind.
I shake my head from side to side to clear my head of thoughts about him. He's off on another mission, which is typical for people like us, but for some reason his absence just...bothers me. I'm fine physically without him here; I can still do the chores, sleep, eat. But my mind always wanders back to the thought that he's never been gone
