To wear the sleek black cape
I'd make sure to catch all evil
Lock them where they can't escape
I'd love to be a superhero
I'd fly through the air
I'd run faster than the speed of light
Without messing up my hair
I'd love to be a superhero
But Batman took the job
As much as I'd love that cape
From him I cannot rob
I'd love to be a superhero
To protect and serve
I'd be your superhero
But I'd rather just observe
I'd love to be a superhero
But girl, I cannot save you
I don't have special powers
No special powers to see you through

The crossroad where people would walk and stray,
It’s where we both met that day.
Looking up at our same longing eyes,
We stared ahead, of our time…
I didn’t mind the ups and downs,
As long as you were around.
You need to bravely face the mistakes,
That's all it would take.
Facing all those trials too,
I wanted to protect you.
Like the sun that would shine an evening red,
Taking the words I would have said.
A sepia moon in the sky,
Taking us into its bright eyes.
The things we held so close,
The warm bonds we cradled.
Even when together,
I wished it last forever…
Sandwich"So how was the BS mission Rob? Eh? Rob!---"Sandwich4 years ago in Romance More Like This
The boy wonder was sitting in the couch, his head slowly nodding, his mind elsewhere. He didn't even hear the speedster, who was practically shouting into his ears.
"You can't hide that kid."
Once a Flying Grayson, always a Flying Grayson. That is, untill you fall.
Gasps, a few flashes of cameras, but he had heard nor seen any of that. Only the dull, but prominent crack, and the thud.
"Huh, oh, sorry KF. Didn't realize you were there," he let out a half-hearted laugh.
"Dude, is that sweat dripping off your face? Come on, you barely break a sweat "
"KF I do sweat "
"Naw, you have an endurance almost as good as mine. Almost, cause I'm perfect."
Wally spun in a little circle and grinned his freckled face down at the bird boy. After about 2 minutes (Or years in speedster time) Wally's hand was a blur, and in less than a second he had Robin's mask in his hand, and was inches from Rob's face. Normally, the boy wonder wo

It was supposed to be a simple recon mission.
Yeah; if only.
Superboy stood in front of the Boy Wonder as he finished downloading whatever files it was he needed into his wrist computer. "Can't you go any faster?" Superboy growled impatiently, resisting the urge to tap his foot like he'd sometimes seen Artemis do. If he were to be perfectly honest, just standing there and waiting with nothing to do but play guard was boring as all hell.
Robin just rolled his eyes and replied somewhat derisively, "Sorry, but I can't really rush technology. There's a lot to download." Superboy just groaned in response and continued to watch for any potential danger, finally giving into the urge to tap his foot a few times. "Almost..." Robin muttered, more to himself than Superboy, as he watched the digital copies of his face turn fr

I know something is wrong as soon as I hear a crash. It's the sound of something breaking and I fear it's more than just a piece of fine china.
"Wally, wait! Please!"
Not more than I second later, I see Master Wallace come storming into the main hallway from my perch on the stairs. I believe the proper word to describe his expression is "pissed off." And there's a hint of hurt as well. Young Master Richard is behind him, right on his heels, face apologetic and pleading.
As Young Master Wallace wrenches open the door, Master Richard grabs hold of his shirt, hands trembling, and I am already making my way down the stairs.
"Let go of me, Dick."
"No! Wally, please don't leave! I didn't mean it! I-"
"Enough." The red-headed boy pushes Master Richard's hands away and my suspicions are unfortunately confirmed correct. "I'm done. It's over."
The door slams and not a second later, he's on the floor, sobbing.
"Good heavens!" is the only thing

I turn around and to look at my boyfriend Wally who's sitting on the edge of my bed looking like a sad puppy who just lost his favorite bone. I sigh heavily as I finish tying my navy blue tie. I hate seeing him like this, especially when it's all my fault he's feeling that way.
"I'm sorry, Wally. I'm really, really sorry," I say for the 10th time tonight. "But Bruce didn't invite you and he won't change his mind no matter what I say."
"Stingy old man."
"Hey, man." I walk over to him and poke him hard in the forehead. "Don't talk about him like that."
"Hmph. He pouts, half in joke, before taking both of my tiny hands in his large ones and pulling me closer to wrap his arms around my slim waist. "Well if I can't go, why can't you stay?"
When he talks to me in that soft, gentle tone, it makes me want to do anything and everything he asks of me, if if I really shouldn't.
"Because you know what Bruce'll do if I stay behind, especially if he finds out it was because of you."

Being a teenage superhero meant you got exposed to a lot of things in your young life. Crime, drugs, sex, death and so on. The list was endless so one was not easily shocked by some things that would baffle a normal teen. Although, seeing your best friend/teammate, Batman's one and only son a.k.a Robin the Boy Wonder, in an 'Alice in Wonderland' costume was something anyone, teen or adult, superhero or not, could agree was messed up.
Wally was no exception.
The small teen made his way to the couch and sat down, arms crossed across his chest and angry pout gracing his face.
"You're allowed to ask."
"Oh thank the Lord," said Wally as he speeded towards his friend's side. "So Rob, why are you dressed up like a pedophile's wet dream?"
After the speedster got a punch to the gut, the youngest superhero began to explain to the team how his school was putting on the play Alice in Wonderland.
The Kidnapping before ChristmasBruce thought it couldn't get any worse as he held the shattered body of his son, his small body traumatized and broken. But that was before the roof decided to collapse, snow, and wood coursing down on them. Batman quickly leaped atop Robin, covering the small child's body with his own, protecting him from the onslaught of rubble.The Kidnapping before Christmas4 years ago in Drama More Like This
Knocking rubble off his back, Batman looked up, thankful that most of the roof above his head had remained intact, but it was only a matter of time before it gave in. With a new sense of urgency be began to gather Dick more securely in his arms.
"B-B-Bruce?" Teeth chattering, Dick looked questioningly up at his Guardian, the weeks of torture at the hands of his abductors, showing on his young face,
"Yeah it's me, chum, hold on, I'll get you out here. You're safe now." Bruce reassured the exhausted child, holding the boy closer to his chest, rubbing Dick's arms in attempt to keep hypothermia at bay.

I groan as I regain consciousness, the cold air stinging my burning skin. Everything hurts, aches, so badly that I can barely move. My ribs scream with agony when I try to sit up further, warm liquid that has to be blood streams down my limbs, and my breathing is hard and shallow. I can't see a thing either. Nothing but darkness so thick I can't see my own body. Cold metal chills the skin of my fingertips. Someone's taken my gloves. I don't feel the familiar weight of my utility belt around my waist anymore either. Of course they'd take that too.
Memories of the last few hours flood back to me. We were on a mission...got ambushed...there was an explosion and...that's all I remember.
"Hello?" I call out weakly. Maybe someone else is in here with me, thye just can't see me. But that would be stupid. Then again...none of our enemies are that smart. "Hello?"

The chest he'd previously been resting his cheek on sunk in frustration. "I just don't get it we've made out in my room, your room, rooftops, trees... Hey! No violence!"
Robin grumbled, sapphire eyes rolling behind the tinted lenses, "It's not my fault your reflexes suck."
"My reflexes are grea-OW!"
"You were saying?"
Wally's nostrils flared as he exhaled heavily. "The point here-"
"Oh, so there is one?" Robin snorted. It was too easy to aggravate Wally, whose patience's ability to fizzle was just as quick as those feet of his. Could the younger kid be blamed? Not really, considering how cute that grumpy-face was.
"Yes," Wally answered confidently, "and it is that we've Frenched up pretty much anywhere. How's this any different?"
"The couch is comfy and our rooms are too far away."
Robin scoffed. "Laz

I'm on this stupid mathelete trip for a tournament and because of a room mix up, there aren't enough beds for everyone to have their own. So I'm sharing. And I'm not getting a wink of sleep. I don't even know who this guy is. Sure, we're on the same team but we don't talk. At all.
This warmth next to me isn't Wally's. It's not familiar, or comforting, or safe. This breathing isn't his. It's erratic and noisy and just plain annoying. And when he brushes against me because he's a wild sleeper, it's just not the same. Heavy and rough, not smooth and gentle. Instead of soft wisps of breath, my ears are greeted with thundering snores that tear at my eardrums.
I hate it.
I'm cold, too. The dude beside me is so huge and greedy that he's taken all of the covers for himself. With me in nothing but a thin T-shirt and shorts, it's freezing in here. At least when Wally does that he ends up turning around and hugging me

Artemis jolted from her sleep as Wally's voice whispered around her. Frantically, she looked around, a flash of red and yellow assaulted her eyes, but she dismissed it quickly. Her mind was playing tricks on her. Wally was dead. Had been for months. Get your shit together, Crock. He's never coming back.
Shivers ran over her skin as she blinked back the tears. Closing her eyes against the images of him in his stealth mode costume as he swung her up in his arms and kissed her for the first time. Sobbing quietly to herself, Artemis mumbled, “No kidding...” before she drifted back into a Wally filled sleep.

As the sun came up, Artemis dragged her lazy ass out of bed. She had to go meet the rest of the team. She still had a role to play, maybe not as Artemis anymore, but as Tigress. It was still an important role anyway. Nightwing would be pissed if she showed up late again.

short-lived things made of static
I don't know whose dreams they are,
forced down my throat on a breath
I don't take.
Chew, swallow, rinse and repeat,
they taste like chalk on my tongue;
chasing sunsets to Poland,
tripping in a game of tag
I don't play.
My own dreams taste of dark blue
and the shadows of mornings
we won't have,
but I crunch them up like candy.
These dreams lie in my belly
In my cell I think of you,
the spider webs in my eyes
Reality is a thread
I tie up in little knots
in my hair.
Nightmares He didnt always have nightmares. He didnt always have the fear to fall asleep. But of the late, he did. At night he felt as if he couldnt breathe, like he was somehow trapped. Terror shot through his veins and he always awoke with a jolt. He hated it, he could never stay consious enough to hear anything the team was saying in the mornings. He could barley come up with a good response when they ask how he is, or why hes so tired.Nightmares5 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This

Usually the red headed teen found him curled up in a ball on the couch around three in the morning; on his way for a midnight snack. He knew he had nightmares, but never fully understood them. He got that he was raised by Batman, and was taught to never fully show his emotions or share his deepest, frightening secrets... He didnt have to tell him, he could see past his lies.
Thats why he was always there to kiss the terror out of his fa
While You Were Sleeping 1The first time Robin fell asleep against Wally, the speedster knew Robin trusted him, even if he couldn't know his name. If he didn't, Wally doubted that Robin would have stayed once he started to get tired, let alone stay beside him on a couch watching a boring movie.While You Were Sleeping 15 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
Wally had to admit that it had been tempting to steal the sunglasses and wake Robin up for a chance to see his eyes. He had even reached for them and took hold of the temples but released them, leaving the sunglasses on the younger boy's face instead before getting a blanket to cover him up with.
In the morning Robin acted like nothing had happened, like his accidentally spending the night was perfectly normal; just an ordinary friend with no secrets spending the night. That's how Wally knew he had made the right decision.
The act of Robin falling asleep on his couch soon took a pattern and Wally could determine the causing factors from the conversations before hand. When indicators presented themselves, Wally knew to ha

One other day: Their anniversary.
Dick lays in his bed, covers pulled over his head and the pillows on the floor. He's curled in a ball, clutching the sheets in fists like he will never let go. At this rate, he won't.
He feels like he can't breathe. his nose is stuffed, his breathing is ragged. He can feel his heart hammering in his chest.
He emotionally can't get out of bed.
Bruce is out of state, and Alfred hasn't came to knock on his door to tell him it's time for school, even though it's well past. He knows he'll come up soon, through, and bring him breakfast and a few aspirins.
He doesn't want to eat anything, through. He doesn't want to sit up or get out of bed or even move. He just wants to sulk.
Perfect SleeperI never thought that Dick and I would ever share the same bed together.Perfect Sleeper4 years ago in Romance More Like This
Sure, I've thought about it because deep down inside I love him and wouldn't rather do anything besides that, but I never thought it would actually happen. It's only happening now because Alfred said he'd forgotten to prepare a room for me for our sleepover. I still find that weird. I mean, Alfred not being prepared? That makes no sense. But like everything else I'll just push it aside until tomorrow.
Something warm brushes against my bare side and I stiffen. I turn my head on my pillow (which is amazingly soft and fluff)in the direction it came from and am greeted with Dick's peacefully sleeping face-eyes closed, red lips parted, expression relaxed-resting just a few inches away from my own.
I cut my eyes downward to look at my side and find his tiny, pale fingers grazing the skin softly. The warmth from his light touch is amazing and it makes me yearn for more contact between us. I a

“Artemis, just listen to me and what I have to say, okay?” Nightwing's usual calming voice did nothing to ease her frayed nerves, but she didn't stop him from talking and that was all he could ask for. “I went back to where the magnetic field disruptors were in the Arctic. At first I didn't find anything. For days I found nothing.” He sighed tiredly, running his hands through his longer hair. “I was there for almost two weeks, digging in the snow, talking to the natives there, searching for something. I had given up and was about to head home when I heard...” he stopped again and looked away, shaking his head. “You're not going to believe me if I tell

blinded by my own words,
as they crawl across the screen
giving life to my inner scream.
Now neatly stacked in a stanza,
trapped between lines
and hasty rhymes.
A begining to a poem
written for you, but not to you
the way a subtle hint is dropped
with no one to catch it
I love you.
I say that too often,
and a convincing lie most of the time.
Save the moments those words are for you,
like now, stop the clock.
Hour, minute, second.
I count, each one away from you
the way this stanza falls away from
Wish I could go back,
but the third stanza.. act
is already underway and who am I
to halt the play.. stage.. pain.. rage.
I rage against myself,
Always the same answer resounding.
I can't tell you how much you really mean
to me, because if I lose you
I have nothing. Not even this poem.
