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

"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

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.
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

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.”

“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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I wanted to sleep, rest myself on this deliciously soft pillow and fall back into dreamland. Even as I closed my eyes and snuggled back into the covers, memory of the night haunted me. I had a really, really weird dream. I mean, it didn't surprise me all that much, as something nagged at me telling me I always had weird dreams. But this time it… was very vivid in my mind.
A woman in a toga was patting my hair down, speaking to me in a gentle voice. Although the voice was pleasant and soothing, she seemed hurried, almost desperate. I couldn't remember a thing she was saying to me, either.

Hazel was running through the streets of New Rome, the winter wind nipping at her cheeks, as she clumsily avoided bumping into passersby's while also keeping the stack of boxes balanced in her arms. People shouted, gave her funny looks, and once she swore she could hear Octavian shouting various words of profanity towards her, but she didn't care. All she wanted to do was get home, to the warmth, and to Frank.
They had invited the gang to their place this year, for Christmas dinner that is, and Hazel hadn't realized how much time had gotten away from her until she'd checked the calendar. It had read: December 23. The scream that Hazel had let out was so loud that it had Frank awake and ready for battle in less than five seconds.

Part of his worry may have been an effect of the just recently ended war that had taken over a year of his life away from him.
The other, less rational but ten times more prevalent reason might have been the fact that his girlfriend had been lying in a bed unconscious for the past two days. Everyone had told him she would be okay: the healers from Apollo, the doctors of New Rome, Chiron, all of his friends, but he just couldn't bring himself to leave her side. He spoon fed her ambrosia, which was hardly a success, and checked her temperature and clothed her forehead whenever it became too warm.
It's just trauma, Percy, he heard the voices repeat themselves in his head. She isn't even hurt. She'll snap out of it soon enough.
But Percy wouldn't leave her if they held a knife to his throat, and they didn't press him too much.
He would nod off to sleep occasionally, though he refused to let himself admit it. He'd
