Artemis flinched at she heard Kaldur's voice through the mental connection. She loaded another arrow as she backed herself against a wall. "How long do you think we can keep them off?" she shouted across the room, letting the arrow fly.
"About another ten minutes I would guess," she heard Tula respond as a wave of water slammed against The Light soldiers surrounding her. She notched a web arrow and sent it flying across the room. She saw Tula dart to the side as the arrow exploded, wrapping the remaining soldiers in the room in a sticky trap. Artemis ran to Tula's side and the two went against each other's backs.
"Seen the nearest entrance?" Tula asked, her magic swirling around her hands.
"Only place soldiers aren't flooding in is the door to the roof," Artemis answered, bow drawn. No soldiers were marching through the other entrances yet, but that didn't mean more wouldn't burst through at any moment.

In my dreams, I fly again.
I close my eyes and, once more, I've got that line tight in my grip. My fingers are gloved, my face is masked. I can breathe again. I can breathe the air of the night, can breathe in every sound and every sight as the city does its dance of darkness. I can feel the sirens blaring in the distance, their pulsating lights creating a vibration against my skin.
I'm free again.
I can race forward, running on my own two feet, my legs long and lean, my heart pounding against my chest, shooting me with adrenaline like a drug. Fresh, alive, healthy. Not a single thought of doubt crosses my mind as I take that leap, as I dive headlong off another rooftop. I cast my line and it reels me back in and I fly like a spider, like a bird through the open air. I laugh. I cry. I feel something and that's what matters.
And then I'm falling, tumbling, and I remember reality.
My eyes flash open as I wake with a start. I stare ahead of me for a moment, recovering

How Many Times?
Barbara couldn't believe what she was seeing. Suddenly, she wasn't Batgirl anymore. It was like the costume had just faded along with her body and left her thoughts and emotions free for the entire world to see. It was her with him.
She just couldn't believe it.
Nightwing and Starfire were standing side by side near the entrance of the Batcave, holding hands. It wasn't just that though, a ring was glinting on the alien's finger.
And still, it wasn't just that. Sitting on Nightwing's other arm was a tiny, little, young girl. She had his smile and hair and her-mother's eyes.
Barbara's mouth fell into a scowl and she glared before crossing her gold and black clothed arms over the gold bat on her chest. They were having words later.
Yes, later. Because the rest of the Bat-Clan was flocking to the little family.
That alien. She was just like Huntress, thinking she could wheedle her way between the two of them. There was no way that was their daughter, it was obviou

Not unless I arrange the blankets
Somehow I manage to mimic
The shape of her body
But I can't recreate
Or the way her chest
Moved softly against my back
With every measured
Most nights, I wake up
And she's not here
Maybe she got up
To get a drink of water
And I don't even know
How long she's been gone
But somehow I know
That she's never
Going to come back to bed
And if I would just reach over
And touch her side of the bed
I would know it was cold
But I'm afraid
I don't want to know she's gone
I don't want to know I can't have her back
And I'll fall asleep again
But most mornings,
I'll wake up thinking
She's still here
And I'll lie there
For just a moment
Wondering where she's gone
And then I begin to wonder
How long I've been alone

Wide blue eyes stared up at the clear night sky, a deep, dark shade of blue almost, but not quite, black and lit up by the flickering light of thousands upon thousands of stars, all of them different sizes, colours and of different brightness and all of them equally beautiful. It was strange to think that he'd never fully appreciated these stars before now, but now he had all the time in the world to admire their overwhelming beauty.
Or at least it felt that way, but if he looked properly then he could see that they were slowly but surely getting farther and farther away, or maybe it was him who was moving away from them, he saddened at the thought, soon they'd be gone forever and he would never see them again, soon everything would be over.
He stared up, taking in every little detail and engraving it all into his memory so that he would never forgot this wondrous sight, the dimmest stars began to fade out altogether making it so that he could no longer see them

“Hey, there’s a light,” Fili called quietly, catching your attention.
You followed the three of them as they dashed through the underbrush and hid behind two trees. You slid in next to Bilbo just as one of the trolls walked by carrying Myrtle and Minty under his arms.
“He’s got Myrtle and Minty,” Bilbo groaned, “I think they’re going to eat them. We need to do something!”
“Yes, you should,” Kili answered, much to the displeasure and confusion of the Hobbit. “Mountain trolls are slow and stupid and you’re so small, they’ll never see you. It’s perfectly safe, we’ll be right behind you”.

You noticed Germany, your crush and friend, walking his three dogs. You were not in the mood to talk to anybody so you let him wander out of your sight. You sighed. It had gotten more cloudier. You had started walking and as if bad luck, a downpour had started. To add salt to the wound, you did not have an umbrella. You wandered around, getting soaked by every second that passed.
"___?" You turned around and saw Germany holding an umbrella. "What are you doing here?" Apparently, you were right outside his house.
He led you inside, giving you a towel. He averted his eyes from you. "Go to the bathroom and change into dry clothing." You smiled nervously and went to the bathroom to change. When you left, Germany tried to recover from a major nosebleed.

Request - Russia x Reader : Meeting in the SnowIvan was walking through the streets of Moscow during a mild blizzard. He often took a walk, just to get out of the house (and his insane younger sister) for a few minutes. He braced himself as the wind picked up and found shelter in a small cafe, where he shook off the snow that was clinging to his coat. He took a seat after buying a cup of coffee and watched the snow settle on the ground outside. He was used to the cold, so snow didn't bother him all that much. What did bother him was the fact that he was lonely, despite having a little sister who behaved like a stalker and an older sister who was kind, but a little bit of a wimp. All of his so-called "friends" left him all by himself in that big house. He let out a small sigh as he looked at his coffee, which was slowly cooling as he held it in his hands, which quite frankly were so big he could squeeze someone's neck and their head would pop off like a grape. He was about to take a sip when he heard someone clear their throat. He nRequest - Russia x Reader : Meeting in the Snow2 years ago in General Fiction More Like This

Sherlock (BBC) x Reader Part 15 When you and Sherlock arrived at the address that John had given you, John was waiting impatiently outside of the police tape with his arms crossed. The tape covered a small area in the front of a little shop, but the crime had apparently happened inside as most of the people were walking in and out of the shop. Sherlock found it rather odd that this was quite near Mr. Braginski's apartment, and that in the course of following him, he often passed this shop. An ambulance and numerous police men dotted the area while the forensics team was mostly gathered in the center or inside the building. In the back of the ambulance sat a trembling woman, around seventy and likely the owner of the store, who was trying her best to tell an officer what she saw.Sherlock (BBC) x Reader Part 152 years ago in Romance More Like This
