It didn't feel real. everything from waking up in Connors arms to getting his arm reset and casted as he fought against the nurses and doctors desperate to get to Bruce's side in the other room, to watching as they wheeled Bruce on a gurney to surgery, to getting briefed on the cover story created by Superman and Wonder Woman to explain away Bruce's grave injuries to the press without arousing any unwanted suspicions, to hearing the news that Wally had come out of surgery and his knee was now healing correctly to now sitting between Superman and Superboy waiting to hear Bruce's fate.
It isn't real, this isn't happening. It's all a dream, Bruce isn't dying; he's alive probably silently fuming because I slept over at mount Justice instead of coming straight home to him, where he's alive, not dying in some damn hospital.

After a confrontation with Ravens brothers that turned out to be a lot of effort for very little gain, Dick, Roy, Donna, Raven, Garfield, Wally and Kory dragged themselves back to Titans Tower. At least no one had really gotten hurt.
Day had long ago turned to night, and Vic had said that debriefing could wait until morning. Donna, Raven and Wally had promptly gone off to bed. Dick followed Gar and Roy to the kitchen to find something to eat.
So desire, huh? Roy taunted, cracking a soda.
Forget it, Roy, Dick replied, rummaging around in the fridge. Youre not getting any details.
Nothing? Cmon not even how gorgeous she still looks?
Dick pulled a container of cold chicken from the back of the fridge and slammed the door shut. Lets just say nothing happened that hasnt happened before.

The door opened up without Beast Boy realizing it, causing him to bang several times on his friend's metal chest. When he realized it, the green changeling just rushed inside the door, leaving Cy to wonder what was such a problem. He watched as Beast Boy paced back and forth, hands flying around his body in agitation. 'I haven't seen BB like this since he tried to work up the courage to ask out Raven,' the mechanical hero thought to himself. "Yeah, yeah, okay. You're in. Now what?" he asked aloud, sitting down on his metal table/bed.
"Raven wants to adopt!" Beast Boy finally struggled himself to say, a look of insanity crossing his green face as his hands pulled on his hair.

Chapter TenRain pounded against the side of the T Tower as the next morning pressed on with dismal mood circulating through the tower. Well at least through Raven, Cyborg, and Beastboy. Starfire was in her usual demeanor although seemed a bit more cheerful than usual, which seemed to only make her friends seem even gloomier. Robin was nowhere in sight, at least for the moment, but it seemed fairly typical for him to be out of sight.Chapter Ten10 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
By noon Cyborg finally had enough energy to force Beastboy to fulfill his end of the bet he lost from the day before. Cleaning, washing, and waxing the T-Car; and if that wasn't enough. Beastboy was also forced to take care of Cyborg's dish duty for the day.
Raven as usual was stowed away in the cold dark depths of her dismal room reading once again. Contemplating her existence once again. The drapes covering her window from the already dark gloomy afternoon as if to say she was darker than t

Cyborg was too busy whistling to himself in the shower to hear Beastboy as he tip toed to the toilet. Gleefully grinning Beastboy placed his finger on the handle and gently pulled down. A rush of fluids poured out into the toilet as all the cold water was drained from the shower. Cyborg began yelping in pain as Beastboy ran for the doorway, snickering along the way…Chapter Nine10 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
Raven was in the living room once again reading her ancient text. She had by now recovered from the horrible night at the Halloween costume party. Starfire was humming gleefully to herself as she prepared her Tameranian food. Silkie was slowly making his way across the counter of which Starfire was cooking. It had been deduced earlier by the two females that Robin was probably in the gym training once again.
A green blur whizzed past Raven as a faint rapture of giggles followed. Raven glanced

As much as Beastboy would have complained Raven didn't mind being forced to take the stairs to the storage room. Robin was particularly keen about making sure they avoided the elevator in any emergency.Dante's Ride: Chapter 69 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
She reached the doorway to the steps. Her hood canted slightly off center as it hung behind her neck. Darkness flooded her vision as she quietly opened the door. She slowly descended the stairway, her hand keeping to the rail as she searched for a switch of some form, the only light in the barren dungeon came from the faint red warning lights in the ceiling, hardly worth calling even a glow. Her eyes managed to adjust though to the murky room as she reached the bottom floor.
She had been silent the entire time, her eyes scanning the room as best she could, looking for anything out of place. &

"Yes…" Her voice responded almost perfectly, the tone, the timber her voice was an exact replica of Raven's emotionless face. "It's me."
Beastboy could feel his heart begin to flutter, as his eyes seemed to widen to a point beyond human limit. "I don't beli…How did…When…But…I'm…." Beastboy's ecstatic and uncontrolled train of thought suddenly mellowed out as he pulled himself back into reality. Something wasn't right. Beastboy may appear 'dumb' to most others, and agreeably he isn't the must intelligent person on the planet, but he did have some intellect. Beastboy knew the smell of almost every individual he'd met, he knew how to tell them apart, and as much as his room was filled with his own personal stench, he should have been able to catch wind of Raven's by now, however he smelt something completely dif

"You are not dressing like a Playboy Bunny in public."
Kory cocked a brow. When did that type of thing bother Dick Grayson? "May I remind you what I wear when I fight crime?"
"That's different. More ideas, Kory, come on, it's still your turn."
"It is only my turn because you had no ideas about what to wear to this Hallowe'en party we must attend."
He gave her that lop-sided grin that she fell in love with, how many years ago was it now? "I'm not creative when I'm sleepy."
A smile played on the Tamaranean's lips. Oh, yes Dick, you really are. "Poor baby. Perhaps we should go to bed. Or are you too sleepy for that as well?"
And miss out on the hot Alien lovin' that he had been missing out on? No siree. "No to bed at least for now and definitely not too sleepy, so just behave for a little while longer. We have to figure out costumes for Bruce's party next Saturday tonight."
Chapter SixBeastboy stood there in front of the sink. Warm soapy suds weaved through his fingers as he viciously scrubbed the charred frying pan. Cyborg had forced him to clean the mess he left earlier. Well he didn't exactly force Beastboy, though. He had more or less coaxed the changeling into the chores, threatening Beastboy with telling Raven that he liked her. Beastboy stood there, still trying to piece things together, why did I agree to this? I could have let Cyborg just tell Raven; she wouldn't have believed him, right? But she might think about…the other day. God damn this pan!Chapter Six10 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
Beastboy sprayed more steaming water onto the pan. His hands were pruned and numb from the burning water. He pulled the plug on the drain; the water swiveled into the draining pipes gurgling along the way. Beastboy pulled the now clean pan out of the sink and pulled a large roll of paper towel out, drying the dish. He put it away and stepped back, sighing in relief, "well after wasting 2 hours cleaning, it'

Summary: Clark swore he saw a smile curve Bruce's lips as he listened to the boy's chatter, they turning to leave the headquarters now that they had accomplished what they had intended, and it was in observing their departure and glancing at the invitation still clutched in his fingers that he decided that it had, most certainly, been worth it.
The boy had been glancing at him for ten minutes now.
Clark looked over his shoulder again, unsurprised when the boy wonder's eyes flickered away immediately and his face flushed. He had been acting this way since he and Batman had arrived at the JLA Headquarters. From what he gathered, it was unusual behavior for Batman's young charge, though he had seen the boy often act in this manner around him in the few encounters they'd had, sh

It had been a rather slow day for him, Raven and Cyborg had gone out to Titans East, and Starfire and Robin were off someplace unknown to Beastboy. He wondered lightly where the others were, but spent little effort to reflect upon the thought, as the TV was too distracting. He drank from his can, finishing it, and belched. "BBBUUUURRRBBB!"

The air was silent as the moon hovered above the midnight sky. Glossy winds willowed against the tower as small waves crashed against the rocky island shore. A dark globule like figure squirmed along the corners of the tower, faint glints of light from various objects formed the outline of the figureless object.
Raven hadn't been sleeping well, she struggled to focus her mind and rid herself of the strange images that were continuing to bring themselves into her head. Although she remained motionless in her sleep her eyes continued to pulse as she squinted, sweat forming on her face until she finally stirred into conscious reality.
Her eyes snapped open as her breathing suddenly increased. A wave of cold swept over her body as the sweat began to dissipate. She shivered. Her breath was actually visible. Her eyes scanned over the room. Everything was silent aside from

Even the cheerful and optimistic copper-skinned alien was buried in a wave of grief and uncertainty as she sat unusually silent. A wide eyed and terrified expression seemed carved into the face of a young green skinned boy, as he sat near his robotic friend occasionally fidgeting with his hand on the arms of his chair. The large cyborg rested with his arms pressing against his legs, staring into the gray marble-toned, plastic tile floor.
Boy wonder, the leader of the team wiped a thin line of sweat from his forehead as he stood glaring at a large screen. His thin black mask squinting every few moments

Time seemed to be snagging as the four friends continuously glared between their friend, Raven, and the clock face.

He knew she'd hear him coming he knew what'd she say but he always knew she wasn't the type to fly away. Her style was confrontational, she despised subjugation and she wasn't too fond of "flight" despite being able to shoot off of the world like a star and never look back.
