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.

“This is Cat Grant reporting for GBS News from Metropolis where the city is under attack from the super villain known as Parasite.” Cat turned away from the camera gesturing to the scene behind her. A red car was lying on its top, smoke pouring from the under carriage. Water was leaking onto the street from a broke fire hydrant, fallen street lights criss-crossing the roads and sidewalks. “With Superman nowhere in sight, he seems to be unstoppable, sapping the powers and energy of everyone who gets close enough.” As the camera zoomed in on the field of drained officers Cat stepped back out of the frame. “Are you getting all of this Jimmy?” She whispered in a demanding

Gasps, a few flashes of cameras, but he had heard nor seen any of that. Only the dull, but prominent crack, and the thud.

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

"Something is wrong." Batman's gravely voice alerted the mentors of the team that he had entered the meeting room after they had returned from their mission.
"What is wrong Batman?" Martian Manhunter inquired.
"I can not reach the Cave or Robin. The Zeta tubes are down and Red Tornado is not responding." Batman reported and the present mentor's eyes widened suddenly on their feet completely alert.

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 Christmas3 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.

Get MeI'm lying down in a bed that's not mine and the person next to me is not Wally.Get Me3 years ago in Humor More Like This
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

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."

Robin wouldn't stop coughing, no matter how hard the young boy tried to hide or stifle it. Kid Flash looked over to find Robin's face in his hand, coughing almost violently.
"Are you okay?" Kid Flash asked, quietly. He moved over to Robin's location and knelt beside him.
"I-*cough*-I'm fine" Robin replied, taking a cough lozenge from one of his many pockets on his utility belt. Kid watched Robin slipped it into his mouth with a quick flick of his tongue.
"Er, you sure? You've been coughing all night" Kid Flash said, turning his eyes away from Robin's face with a blush. "Not to ruin your mood, but it k

I was looking at the lastest report for Wayne Enterprises when I walked by Dick's room. What I'm seeing before me now does not surprise me, but I will not stand for it. Wally is on top of Dick on the bed with no shirt on, pants looking way too loose, kissing him like there's no tomorrow. I told them they could date as long as they followed my rules. Right now, they're breaking about 7. Not the best way to get on the father's good side.

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?"

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..."

Black paint upon the skies,
Stars sprinkled among the canvas.
Moonlight, shining from the corner of your eye.
Atramentous areas surround me.
Fog blankets the land,
Letters written to me in charcoal.
You’ve painted the world,
Bright lights shining in my face.
Bleached eyes, staring back at me.
A world so empty, so dull.
The silver blade sinks into my neck.
I’ve painted my skin,
Upon my doorstep.
Whispers dance among my
Fire burns bright,
Flames upon roses
And causing blisters along our skin.
Warmth melting into our souls.
A knife slices through my flesh,
As blood drips down my shoulders.

I’ve painted my skin, white.
And I've splattered the walls with red.

And I don't know why. It's been 3 days since Wally went off on some trip with his uncle so he's not here and I can't even call to talk to him. It's lonely. I'm not gonna dare talk to Bruce. Not because I don't think he won't listen but because I'll probably end up rambling about my boyfriend and I don't think he wants to hear that right now.

Wait. Who am I kidding? Alfred doesn't sleep.
And as if to prove my point he appears at the entrance and walks down the stairs, a tray with two hot, steaming mugs of what I hope is hot chocolate in his hands.

The orange hair boy grabbed the raven haired hand and smiled. Wally pushed his male lover a bit closer as he gave him a seducting wink; that only made the raven hair turn a light pink while flashing a smile back.

Wally moved his free hand to behind the ravens back and held their hands in the air. Robin placed his other hand on Wally's other shoulder. They moved one step to the left, than two to the right. Making the raven stumble and stepping on Wally's toes, they could only giggle of how ridiculous they looked slow dancing in the middle of the forest. Wally smiled to his best friend and held his hand a bit higher, the raven hair moving in a twirl while chuckling.

She dreaded going back home. Once the house had been fully searched, the underground tunnel fully excavated, and the paper work had been filed, Asami Sato was permitted to go back to her lonely estate.
This time there would be no father waiting at home for her. This time there would be no butlers. This time she would come home to an empty mansion full of broken dreams and buried memories. But that was fine by her; the memories could rot in the spirit world for all she cared.
Asami walked the halls, her footsteps slow and heavy with each movement of her long legs. The morning light leaked through the undraped windows- having never been covered since her father flocked to Amon's side. The light illuminated the marble floors and revealed the dust which lingered intimately on the drapes and table tops. Asami sighed as she watched some dust particles ascend to the windows- the sun providing more love than a desolate home.

Great spires of stone stretch their fingers high
While weaving angels wrap each rocky keep
And strands of strangling seaweed scratch the sky.
Descending deeper in the waiting dark,
Where sea-bound corpses hold a hollowed hall
And gnashing teeth trace their bloody mark,
The rotting planks of piracy that fall.
What mortal man whose breath could sway this land?
What lung could draw in words to speak its part?
The cruel soul of the sea won't spare his hand
To those who've earned his wrath with silent start.
Can souls find sleep in such a strangled thrall,
Where the waves find rest and stop their ceaseless crawl?
Where the waves find rest and stop their ceaseless crawl,
Raking salty claws in sandy shores,
A vain and panicked grasp before they fall;
The home of homespun hypocrites and whores.
The moon reflects in heartless pantomime
A silver orb of glowing innocence
That mocks them as they're punished

It certainly explained why he woke up in the wee hours of the morning with Starfire by his side, her body on the bed and her head craning slightly off the edge.
Taking in a deep sigh, Robin smiled and reached for her. While she time and time again explained her sleeping habits weren't uncomfortable, he couldn't help aligning her normally, even if she did now have him sleeping with his head where his feet would normally go.
In the process of moving her head closer to his, he usually ran his thumb over cheek.
It became a ritual of sorts.
Previously, as just her best friend, it was a way to make sure no loose hair tickled at her annoyingly. Now, as 'her boyfriend' was added, it was also a way he took care of feeling her skin.
