"Are you comfortable, Lin?" Marc stared at the tiny girl, whose hands were strapped to the table. She stared at him with hateful eyes.
"Did you hurt my mom?"
The question surprised Marc. He didn't suspect something like that from her, he was waiting for something like "Where is my mommy?" kind of thing. He stared at the girl, studying her. She was almost the spitting image of the Chief of Police.
"Not physically" He gave her a smile, might as well try to be nice.
"You hurt her...things will go bad for you." She spat at him from across the table. She wanted to be free, save Tenzin, and run.
"What did you do to my friend?" Lin questioned him again.
"The airbender? Well he was just trying to fight with us instead of work with us" Marc smiled at Lin again. It unnerved her.
"Would you like to see your mommy today?" He watched her reaction carefully, her eager shake of her head.
"Well then you have to help us first...Do you know where your momma Toph keeps the keys for work?" He asked, she w

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

Lin curled tightly into a ball. She couldn't see anything, her hands were bound along with her feet and something covering her eyes. She didn't know what was going on. Katara had come over with Bumi, Kya and Tenzin, she had to run home and get some healthy food for them to eat. She hated that Toph didn't keep much in the house. If they needed something, they would run and get it. No need on having a horde of food. Besides donuts, Toph loved those and would always try and snag one for breakfast.
"Ouch!" Tenzin's body slammed into hers and he growled in pain. They were in the back of a truck, both blind and tied.
"Tenzin, watch what you're doing!" Lin whined in pain. He was bigger than her, and it felt like he had used his airbending to hit her with as much force as he could.
Lin struggled to sit upright, she was only wearing her pj's from that night and no shoes. She tried to pull at the ropes on her arms but they wouldn't give.
"Where are we Tenzin?" She whispered, trying to be brave.

"Hey, Gordon. Heard you and Grayson hooked up. Looks like you're going for the cash, huh?"
Barbara suppressed a groan as she slammed her locker shut. Although she was tempted to give them a comment that would send them home crying, she used the infamous Batclan Calming Methods to face her tormentors. She turned around and awaited their insults for the day.
The three were the typical high school girl posse. The Queen Bee (Jane Lee), the Wannabe (Lindsay Shaw), and the Tag-along (Gina Lumiere).
These girls had been bothering her since she started going to the Gotham prep schools. And she had been since the second grade. Being a scholarship kid was like signing a death warrant for your social life at these schools no matter how old you were.
"Come on, Lindsay. Who can blame her? I mean, her dad has to live off a Police salary," Jane sneered, flipping her long black hair.
Babs rolled her eyes. "Shove off, Lee."

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.

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

"Mr. Koto, of the triple threat triad has been brought in yesterday by our chief of police, Toph Beifong. She single handedly cau-" Toph flipped off the radio. She was sick of hearing the boring announcers voice. She wanted to hear something else other than about Koto. She had spent three months tracking the leader of the new group that called themselves the Triple Threat Triad. They wreaked havoc on innocent non bending and bending citizens of Republic City, her city.
Her train of thoughts shut off as she "heard" her daughters sleepy footsteps try and creep into her room. Listening to the door creep open, Lin slowly walked in, holding her blanket tightly with her tiny hands.
"Mommy?" Lin whispered, walking towards Toph slowly, not sure if she was interrupting work or not.
"Yes Lin?" Toph stared unseeing at the wall. She felt her daughter reach for her hand. Toph turned and scooped up Lin in her arms. The poor girl
ButterflyTheres a butterfly in my window,Butterfly4 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
Ill name it after you.
Maybe Ill tell it all the things,
I used to tell you too.
Ill speak to it in poems,
So even when youre gone,
I can sing lullabies to a butterfly,
And maybe itll help me move on.
So on second thought,
Maybe Ill name it after me.
Im already quite accustomed,
To talking to myself you see.
Ill talk to it in riddles,
So when my brains all rotten,
It can remind me of old memories,
Id thought I had forgotten.
Or I could name it after a stranger,
A person I havent met yet.
There wont be a thing to tell it.
But on this butterfly Ill make a bet.
Though it sounds little more than a promise.
Ill swear by this butterfly,
Itll be long dead and gone,
Before I forget the story of you and I.

When the night is long and her bed is bare, she will often search for the past.
She keeps the totems hidden in the closet, concealed by a sheath of drawers and shielded with lock and key. There is no particular reason for her to veil them, as they are merely memories. But it is a ritual of sorts for her, and it helps her keep them close. It helps her remember.
Turning the small copper key as her wrist twists, the drawer pops open, revealing flashes of color and old, nearly forgotten images.
She picks up one such artifact, turning it over in her hands, and holds it in front of her, studying it with the eye of a detective. Here we have a young boy, certainly no more than 9 years old. His thick, black hair is tousled upon his head, and his eyes gleam a bright turquoise blue of youth and enthusiasm. She smiles. This is how she will always remember him, when they first locked eyes. All optimism and childlike wonder at the world. Even after all that had happened to him.

Kid Flash let out a loud sigh of aggravation. "Can we just skip the talking and cut to the chase? Literally?"
"Kid-" His uncle interrupted, an alarmed expression on his face, but the speedster had already darted forward in a reckless charge.
The green woman easily side-stepped the young man, and lifted her hand. Gnarled roots burst from under the cement, and wrapped themselves around KF.
"Dear, that was too easy." Poison Ivy sighed. "I need more of a challenge than that."
Wally scowled. "That's not my only trick, you know!" He called out before vibrating as fast as he could.
The plants didn't make a sound, but Poison Ivy let out an anguished cry as the burning the plant would have felt was transmitted to her.
Flash took this as his cue and raced forward himself, dodging the writhing plants and grabbed the woman's wrist.
"Let go!" She sc
Wally and Artemis :: The First TimeThe door creaked open and with another giant sob and the sound of a long breath being exhaled, she made her way through her apartment with slow, shaky steps. Almost as soon as her bed was in sight, the blonde woman launched herself at it and collapsed on top of it, her shoulders shuddering as she gripped the velvety soft, violet blanket that she was sprawled out upon. Even its warm caress wasn't enough to ease her pain. Heck, nothing would be. More tears streamed down her face, running over the same place they had been going over for the last hour. A small whine escaped from her parted lips, the sound smooth and uninterrupted until she ran out of breath. A sharp intake and she was at it again, sobbing once more. She gathered the blanket beneath her in a small bundle where her head was and readjusted her position so that her face was now hidden in the depths of the lovely fabric.Wally and Artemis :: The First Time3 years ago in Romance More Like This

Young Justice - Part 6: BatgirlFor a moment, there was absolute quiet. I don't think anybody really knew what to say as Nightwing hastily returned the small shard of kryptonite to a pouch on his belt. He knelt by Conner's side and felt for his pulse with surprisingly gentle fingers. Without a word, he draped Conner's arm over his shoulder and helped him to his feet.Young Justice - Part 6: Batgirl3 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Conner was already coming around, shaking his head as if to clear it. He was still weak from that brief exposure to the kryptonite, so his legs shook and he would have fallen again if Nightwing hadn't been there to hold him up.
"She'll come around again soon," Nightwing spoke then, breaking the silence. It was hard not to jump at the sudden noise. Everybody had gone so still. "Get her back to sick bay, and use restraints this time. Soft cuffs, two milligrams Ativan, five of Haldol,"
For half a heartbeat, nobody moved. Then a small chunk of concrete clattered to the floor, and our temporary paralysis was broken. I moved first, grabbing a spare blanket fro
'Wally'It shouldn't have ended like that. His death should have been something different, something special. He shouldn't be just another name on a list or another number in a death in a death toll. He should have died a hero, saving someone not waiting, needing, for someone to save him. He shouldn't have died just like that. He couldn't have. It wasn't fair. It wasn't right. He was so young. Yes, there were people younger than him there, but he was different, he was special. He always has been. I know everyone thinks that the people they knew were different and special, but he was. He truly was. He was amazing. Brilliant. Completely insane and completely irreplaceable. I hear his laugh, more like a cackle, echoing in my head as I remember him. He meant so much to me. Not just a team mate. Not just a friend. Not just a best friend even. He was like a little brother to me. And the worst part of all? No one will ever know the truth. They won't know who he was.

The blond girl sighed from her place on the couch while cleaning off her bow. Her jean jacket riding up when she stretched her arms showing the stomach that her cammie didn't cover. "Shouldn't you be annoying someone else?"
The speedster shook his head as he plopped onto the couch with an arm over Artemis's shoulder. "Miss M threw me out of the kitchen. Said she was making me a surprise with Conner." Artemis shook her head at his cluelessness while choosing a rather sharp arrow form the quiver next to her. "I hope its brownies. With chocolate chips. A lot of chocolate chips. A really big tub of chocolate chips." He paused as if in a trance, but was out of it pretty fast. "So I have nothing to do, and now you got me all to your- OW! What the heck?"
The ginger quickly retracted his hand and held the bleeding wound to his chest as he stood. "First, don't touch me, Baywatch, and second are you really that stupid?"
The idiot in question didn't seem to be listening, however.

“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.

The morning sun came shining through the window, warm and sweet on my skin. The bed cover was loose around my body and my eyes fluttered open.
My mind reminded me of last night, when Zuko came sneaking in to comfort me after the night's event.
Smiling softly, I rolled over to find an empty space; something I never wanted.
A piece of paper lay in Zuko's place and a small fire lily lay on top of it.
Picking it up, I read the words slowly:
I'm sorry I couldn't stay but I just wanted to let you know how much you mean to me. I have never believed I would fall for someone like you, someone so different from me. But I do, I love you with everything I have. I made you a bracelet, its on the small table. Just a little reminder of me. Don't be afraid of today. I will never be far behind you.
I love you.

"Bye Mom!" I yelled, waving back at her as I ran up Half-Blood Hill. She waved back, a smile on her face, and blew a kiss before jumping back in the car with Paul. I looked up the hill and pushed myself the last few meters to rest against Thalia's Pine (yes, we still called it that). It was the first day of camp and, after my long re-make of Junior year courtesy of Hera and her eight month rest, I was more than happy to be back. The war was over, we had won, and surprisingly the Greeks and Romans got along better than anyone could have guessed.

There's a loud knock at the door. That must've been what woke me up. I glance at the clock to see it's five in the freaking morning! I sigh and slowly creep over to the door and look out the peephole. Oh crap. I rush over to the nearest bed, which happens to be Boomer's, and try to wake him up. Boomer's eye slowly open and he yawns. "What's up man? Why do you look like you seen a ghost?" He smiles as he says this in a sleepy tone, which, thank goodness, is quiet.
