Family My name is Jason Todd. Ex-Boy Wonder, current Red Hood. "Ex-Boy Wonder?" You may ask. "But how can someone as brutal as the Red Hood have ever worn pixie boots and scaly underwear?" Well, I wasn't always this brutal. In fact, I used to be a pretty good kid, until the Joker got his hands on me. What do I mean by that? I mean the Joker beat me nearly to death with a crow bar and then blew me up. "But that's not possible." You say. "Batman wouldn't have let that happen. And besides, if you were really blown up, you would be dead." Well, Batman did let it happen. Not only that, but he let the Joker get away with it, too! And I did die, thank you very much. But for reasons still unknown, I came back. I dug myself out of my own grave and basically wondered around without a brain until Talia found me. She's kind of like Bruce's girlfriend, or at least she thinks so. I'm pretty sure she only threw me in the Lazarus Pit because sheFamily1 year ago in Drama More Like This
Secret Saturdays - Exotic Entree Pt IA series of torches mounted on walls of stone set aflame and bring light into a crypt of dark. Instrumental tunes chant out both bizarre and goth as a title fades in reading "Weird World". As the title fades out, a sudden eye blinding spark of light unleashes a blow of thick smoke. An incredibly pale figure, wearing a robe of grayish azure, stands out calmly from the vaporizing smolder and looks dead straight into the center with his sharp eyes of flax.Secret Saturdays - Exotic Entree Pt I2 years ago in Sci-Fi More Like This

First were the nose boops, Corey’s face dangerously close to hers and his nose bumping hers, it seemed almost like a couple-y-thing.
Then were the hugs, they were more bone crushing then anything, and he usually dropped her as soon as he stopped hugging her, but Laney had began to think either his brain could only stay focused on one thing at a time or he forgot about how short she was
And then everything got a whole lot better, or worse, depending on how you looked at it
The band went to a diner for milkshakes and Corey sat next to Laney and as the band talked and drank they’re milkshakes, Laney noticed him scooting closer and closer to her, to point where they’re sides were basically nuzzled against each other, Laney couldn’t stop blushing the whole time.

The raven haired boy looked up from his holographic computer to see his best friend.
"Why do you want to do that? I thought it gets in the your way when you run." With one eyebrow raised he looked at his friend suspiciously. Wally always made fun of his cape, saying that it smelled weird (don't ask) and how it's going to get caught on something and make him a living piñata.
"Well yea, but who said anything about running with it?"
" Touché." He took off his cape and handed it to the read headed boy, who happily put it on. "So what are you going to do with it?"
With one hand Wally pulled his goggles down so you can barely see his bright green eyes, and with the other he pulled up the cape up right below the goggles. He narrowed his eyes into a glare, and with a low voice he said "I'm Batman."
Robin couldn't help but laugh. It was the best/funniest imitation of the Dark Knight he had ever seen. He then stopped and stared, a smirk forming o
1504 - The Road to El DoradoThe 9-year-old's heart pounded in his ears as he skidded around another corner in the seemingly endless maze of foreign alleyways, a minute crowd of men shouting things after him in a language he didn't understand. A gasp of terror was ripped from his wildly undulating chest as he came face to face with a huge wall. He spun around, bright green eyes wide in desperation and searching for an escape, but the men had already closed the gap and were now looming menacingly over his smaller-than-average frame.1504 - The Road to El Dorado3 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Nearby, a brunet boy had just been wandering through the streets when he heard the commotion coming from one of the alleys forking off from the market square. Having nothing better to do with his time, he climbed the low side wall of the alley and walked along the top of it until he reached the source of all the noise. What he saw there nearly made him lose his balance.
One of the men had grabbed the golden haired child and was holding him above the ground, ignoring his wild flailing.
Ring-PopArtemis trudged into the apartment she shared with Wally. It’s been months since she’s seen it, but as the saying goes, there’s no place like home. With the Invasion over she was finally able to return to the apartment. But unfortunately the one reason she went straight there, wasn’t there. Wally was still in his last class of the day for another forty-five minutes.Ring-Pop2 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
Deciding to make the most of the time, Artemis started cleaning up a bit. The pizza boxes hidden under the couch with assorted other food packaging didn’t come as much of a surprise. Considering Wally’s cleaning skills and how much he eats, it makes perfect sense.
Once the cleaning was done there was still another twenty minutes left until the ginger arrived home.
With that in mind she went off to the bathroom to take a shower. There were still a number of unidentified bits of sea-junk on the Tigress uniform she hadn’t bothered to take off before rushing over to the apartment. Hones

Jaime glared at Bart.

“Yeah, sure you will like, the fifty other times you told me you would?”
“Hey, I only asked you forty-nine times,” Bart pointed out.
“Yet I still don’t have my money back and now this is the fiftieth time you have asked and the answer is still NO.”
Bart could tell he was losing this argument.
“Come on, dude, I’m starving. You know I have a high metabolism. I need food!” Bart begged.
Bart could tell he wouldn’t be getting any food this way so he changed his tactics. He stood up from the park bench they had been sitting on and turned to face Jaime.

Chapter Three: Teamwork Begins with a T
For the next few days the six teens continued to go to school. Once they would finish their homework, Nightwing would train them in combat and teamwork.
"Watch what your teammates are doing," said Nightwing. "Come up with attack plans that combine your strengths. You need to work together. You can win one fight by yourself, and the next one, and maybe the next one after. But people who fight alone, they fail, and they fall, eventually. What made the Titans strong was having teammates to pick you up again after."
"We know, Dad, fight smarter, not harder," said Nightstar.
"No, fight smarter, fight harder but, most importantly, fight together," replied Nightwing. He turned to Burrower. "Show me your moves." Burrower's eyes and hands glowed yellow as he levitated sev

Nearly the entire League was there, it seemed like. The Outsiders, the Titans, and the entire Bat-Family (save for Cassandra, but she hadn't been able to charter a flight out of Japan and was currently video chatting with Stephanie while they waited) had arrived too, and Damian was just left feeling very, very confused.
He and Grayson had been on patrol when one of Ra's Al Ghul's snipers had shot Grayson in his chest, leaving three bullets lodged in his chest. It had been from point-blank range and the Kevlar hadn't held, and Batman had fallen off the building, falling three stories onto a ledge. Damian had tried to save him, he really had, but he was too far away and too small, and Grayson had vanished over the precipice before he could get his grapple out.
Miraculously, he had still somehow been conscious (ouch, Damian didn't envy him for that) and he had managed to twist his body around, landing in a weak

As she looked at the group, the ones who have become the dysfunctional family all seemed as it should. Robin and Starfire were watching TV. Or, rather, Starfire was. Robin was too busy watching Starfire to notice anything on that screen. Beastboy and Cyborg were over in the kitchen deep in their morning routine of arguing over the pros and cons of tofu. Raven paused in her scanning of the room to focus on the green goofball in the kitchen. It had been a month since their talk on the roof and he had made a complete come back to his old self.

He rolled over and stood up, squarring his shoulders. Despite his urge to shout something about the "AMAZING BLACK STAR!" he knew he'd probably only get a Maka Chop for his troubles. He walked out of the room, stumbling to the kitchen for some water. As he passed Soul's room, where both Soul and Maka were staying to make room for Black Star and Tsubaki, he heard something.
A little whimper, maybe even a moan. He pressed his ear to the door, curious.
"Soul...soul...stop teasing me..." Maka whimpered, her voice scared but almost bemused.
"Just give in, Maka, and give me what I want..." That was Soul's voice, whispery, seductive, and dangerous.

The music was all muffled and hard to hear when I regained my consciousness. I opened my eyes slightly and saw that I was in some other room and I was staring at the wall and a large painting hung perfectly straight and aligned on it. Remembering that that the last thing I saw before being in there was Soul asking me if I was feeling ok just before I fell into Tsubaki's arms. I cursed to myself and examined where I was now. They had both asked me if I was ok so that meant I must have looked way distressed. Where was Soul now? And where was Tsubaki? More importantly where was I?
I was sitting alone in a room with two openings: one a door and one an archway. What I was sitting in was a beautiful red leather couch in the middle of the room

Stepping into the apartment, I glanced over to the wall near Soul's bedroom door and saw that his scythe was still leaning against it. I hadn't dared move it since I put it there before going to see Soul the night after Medusa's attack. But now, it was about time I did move it. So I walked over, took it carefully into my hands and walked into Soul's bedroom and back over to the wall where he always had it hung. I put it upon the large nails that kept it on the wall and examined it's blade. Immediately I gasped and leaned over to wipe it with my thumb. "Crap it's scratched..." I then mumbled as I tried to rub the scratch away. "Soul's going to freak once he sees this "
