The Red Lantern took another step forward and extended a hand, a gesture which he used only when he wanted her to come with him somewhere instead of staying where they were at the moment. His ocean blue gaze watched as she turned around in her chair, eyes slightly widened in something akin to surprise, yet she still gave a small nod and stood up from her chair. "We have not been sent on a mission yet, therefore, I am not preoccupied." she said, following him as they began to walk away from the main room of the Interceptor. Ever since Atrocitus and the rest of the Red Lantern Core had been defeated, the team had been going on small missions around the galaxy to help some civilians of certain planets in the Forgotten Zone to rebuild their homes, as that was, what the Guardians had sincerely promised to do.
The AI followed as she was led into the room in which her friend resided in and as he sat down on his bed, she did the same, considering from

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

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.

He had tried to hurry. But the army was to much at the time. War was not for the impatient, and never will be. His colleagues were falling left and right, but then, their captain had stepped up, driving them into an insane plan, but one that worked.
They had rejoiced in their victory, but he had been quiet. They were killing their own... not Man Hunters... it shamed his soul to know his brothers had turned on one another when things got worse, and the Capitals had fell. Those who thought they were wiser, turned out to be bloodthirsty fools. And the true wise men were slaughtered like animals.
He found it sickening. As a child, he was taught to care for everything--even those that are a threat. For they too have a purpose. The wild dogs had enough right to live as the next man did. And here they were, killing each other

A Hogwarts Letter?
"What do you want for your birthday breakfast?" Remus' mother asked when he entered their small kitchen.
Remus covered his mouth as he yawned before sitting on the stool at the table. Because it was his birthday, his mother had gotten up early to start making the cake and any other treat she knew he'd want. It had been like this for as long as he could remember and he knew why.
"Pancakes?" he asked with sheepish smile when he realized he hadn't answered his mother yet. "With strawberries and lots of apple butter?"
His mother made a disgusted face, but Remus knew she was only joking. After all, he got his love for weird food combinations from her.

“What do you think they do up there?”
Remus gladly looked up from his Potions essay – horrible subject in his opinion – to find his three friends staring at the door that led to the staircase up to the girls’ dormitory. The four of them had quickly learned how the staircase worked their first year at Hogwarts. And for the past three years they’ve always wondered what the girls did since they had better security than the boys.
“Probably gossip,” Peter muttered just loud enough for his friends to hear him.
Sirius rolled his eyes and turned in his seat so his back was to the door. “Pete, that’s what they do in the common room,” he said condescendingly. “And most of the time they don’t even whisper what they’re saying. No, I think they do something worse in their dorms.”
“Like what?” Remus finally asked even though he knew

-1602- Hampton Court, England; the seat of power of England, the residence of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth. Dark clouds hung overhead, hung over all of England, in fact. The air was thick with humidity and yet there had not been any rain in weeks, months almost. The air rumbled and grumbled as lightning flashed, but not a drop of water fell. A carriage, moving at a leisurely pace was approaching. The passenger was a youth, dressed like nobility; he had short, black hair and sharp blue eyes. He looked at the scenery outside, but his face had a deeply ponderous expression. The carriage pulled up to the gates of the Queen's mansion of Hampton Court.
"Master Wayne?" The driver said as the carriage came to a stop. "We've arrived, sir."
The young man exited the carriage, porters were waiting for him and began to take his luggage; he would remain in the hospitality of Her Majesty for a while, so he had packed some essentials. Another figure ca

Kid Flash sprinted across the field that separated his previous hiding spot from Hanger 3. The guards by the front entrance were already knocked out or tied up by what could only be a rope-slinging batarang.
Dammit he thought. Robin beat me here.
But the hanger was huge, obviously used to store some of the Air Force's larger planes before it was abandoned, and had a few smaller buildings and shed-like structures surrounding it. If I can sneak in through the back I'll meet Rob in the middle. Then maybe I can get him to talk to me again

The subtle sound of fingers racing across keys of a laptop wakens me from my light sleep. To any normal human the noise would be nothing more than a whisper, but to me, they're as loud as a shout. Especially since it's the distinct sound of Tim's keyboard.
He's up late again...
I sit up in his bed and rub the sleep from my eyes as I slide off of my soft bed. Without making a single sound I follow the clacking, walking out into the hallway, down a few stairs, and into the main sitting room. It doesn't take me long to spot the slim figure of my boyfriend sitting cross-legged on top of one of the large couches, slightly illuminated by the white-blue light of his laptop screen. His fingers haven't taken a single break yet, still working furiously to accomplish whatever task their owner had set for them since I had first heard them. I can't keep the slight smile from crossing my lips.

My right hand grabs a hold of Dick's as he reaches the doorway of my barely lit bedroom.

I don't want him to leave. I want him to stay with me tonight; well, every night actually. I have for a long time. But I've always let him go. But tonight...I don't know. I just want to hold him as I sleep and wake up to his angelic face and bright smile in the morning. That's all I want right now.

That's the only way I can describe my boyfriend Dick Grayson as he sits beside me on the couch in Wayne Manor telling me about his latest trip out of town. Wait, country. He'd been gone for the past week (unbearable) for this fundraiser in some country in Africa. I swear this is one of the funniest things I've ever seen. He's telling me about the happy children, the elephants and tigers and a bunch of other animals with names I don't remember, and the dude that slipped into a pile of you-know-what. But ya know what?
I'm barely even listening.
I'm paying more attention to him instead of what he's actually saying. Sounds horrible and incredibly thoughtless, right? But he's speaking and moving with such enthusiasm that I can't take my eyes off him for even a moment. His electric blue eyes are bright with laughter, tiny lips stretched into a brilliant smile, and arms flying through the air with such animation and vigor that it makes me smile back at him before my br

It has been two weeks since that unfortunate day and it is taking its heavy toll on the manor. Master Richard is not sleeping at all. The only time he shuts his eyes is for brief moments in order to blink. He will not even go to lay in his bed, just sit on the couch or in the Batcave. He barely eats as well. The most I have seen him eat in these past few weeks is one bowl of tomato soup each day. I have to keep an eye on him more than usual in case he falls or collapses and requires medical attention. I must keep an eye on Master Bruce too. I have kept him from finding Young Master Wallace and torturing him until he dies a very painful death for about a total 30 times. It really is exhausting for me.

"We are more than we are, we are one."
Besides an occasional eco from one of the many bats, the only noise the echoed through the cave was the clicking of keys under Dick's fingertips. He yawned, his eyes starting to hurt as he stared at the computer screens around him. He leaned on his hand, sighing, he wished something not so boring would come up.
Some light footsteps, a pause, and a loud sneeze.
Dick smiled, "What's up kid?" he asked, not taking his eyes off the screen.
There was a sniffle of the nose right next to Dick, "What are you working on and how can I help?" his voice nasally.

There was so much evidence supporting the fact that he and Wally West were friends, the best of friends, but no matter how much he thought about and how many times he could think of to back up that fact, none of it measured up to the fact that Wally first thought of him when drugged with fear gas.

I had expected to run into KF a while ago, he thought, a bit disappointed really. Yes he had been avoiding Wally for the past three days, and he had thrown away his com link so the Wally couldn't talk to him, but in truth he was really starting to miss his speedster buddy. He missed the goofy smiles, the lame jokes and the friendly competition for who could take down more baddies. The boy wonder smiled as he let his mind wander to their past adventures, specifically one time a few weeks before when his friend had saved him from a crazy with a machine gun.
The man had blocked off all of Robin's possibly escape routes, and just as the dark-haired teen was calculating his chances of surviving leaping over the goon, a blur of red and yellow scooped him up and whizzed him to safety. Together they took the man do
