“At least I have you guys.” You muttered to yourself as you pulled out an old cardboard box that was one tear away from falling apart. Glancing inside, you smiled, seeing that your comic books were still there. With a grunt, you lifted the heavy box onto your bed and pulled out the top three books; ‘Catwoman: When in Rome’, ‘Batman: Hush’, and ‘Batgirl: Batgirl Rises’. They were the first few graphic novels that you had gotten and they were the start of your Bat Family addiction, “You guys won’t leave me right?” You muttered, almost inaudible, as you leafed through ‘Hush.’
After curling up with the book, you stopped at t

Batman was on his usual night patrol. He made the roof top of a tall building as his operating point, from where he could have a clear view of the street, especially the museum, which, according to his sources, is the site of action for the night. He was alone. He insisted Robin to stay out of these chilly night patrols and concentrate on his studies. His grades were beginning to worry him. He had not faced such problem with Dick, he perfectly balanced between his studies and his work. Tim, on the other hand was so obsessed with his newly acquired Robin persona that he dreamt of flying the streets of Gotham all day. No wonder there was a protest from him to Bruce's decision, but the big man had the final word.
The night was colder than usual. Why could't Joker choose a better day to bother him? There was no reason why he should rob a museum, except to attract Batman's attention. "Crime is no fun withou

Nightwing: *narrating* This is bad. You think you can watch something on the news or hear something from a friend about Gotham City and think its bad. You don't know even HOW bad it really is.
In the smog over the city, we can see a small dark figure.
Nightwing: *narrating* This isn't as bad as the quake, or when the Clench ran through the city, or the Zero Year,or the Night of the Owls; but it's close.
We see Nightwing is the speck, he's on a hang-glider.
Nightwing: *narrating* A gang war has broken out. A big one. Penguin, Black Mask, and the Falcones are at each other's throats; each one blaming the others for inciting it. The Gotham Police can barely keep order, or protect the civilians.

Why Wally's not allowed to have a cape"Hey Rob, can I borrow your cape?"Why Wally's not allowed to have a cape4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
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

Jason recognized that his name was called but blatantly ignored it, involved in repairing his motorcycle.
He gripped the wrench in his hand stronger and jerked a bolt extra tight to let out his annoyance, mumbling, "Tim..."
"JAYJAY?! YOUR ASSISTANCE IS BEING REQUESTED!"
He looked up from his spot kneeling in front of one of the tires. He huffed as he threw his wrench aside into a toolbox and wiped the grease off with a handkerchief, "What do you want, baby bird?"
"DAMIAN'S SMOTHERING COLIN WITH HIS PELICAN!"
He wiped the back of his still oily hand on his forehead, "Again?"

Rubbing his temple with his fingers, he walked at his leisurely own pace down the hall, despite Tim's desperate cries echoing down the halls. He finally located where the shouting was coming from and creaked the door open with one hand to peek in.
All three of the young boys were engaged in a frenzied dog pile. Tim was on the bottom, looki

May 16. 11:45pm
Tonight's the night.
I'm not sure why, but I've decided to make this little audio journal before I go.
I feel the need to talk this through, even if it's just to myself.
Well, the old me.
After tonight I will be a different person.
I suppose I should start at the beginning.
I was a student at a prestigious university in gotham, studying for a degree in human psychology.
I was enjoying my school life, but something felt wrong.
It was a like a whisper in the back of my head, something was just irritating me.
My studies in human psychology started making me very cynical when I considered the state of the modern world.
In one class we were debating criminal illness, and someone brought up the topic of capital punishment.
We all talked but I felt I was the only one who really thought it could be a just decision in some cases.
The simple fact is, the world would be better off without some people.
The Scarecrow, the Riddler, Two-face, Poison Ivy and of course The Joker.
Raven: the Jungle QueenThe Shadow-God of TamaranRaven: the Jungle Queen2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Walking along the hallway of the living quarters in Titan Tower, Robin stopped short as Raven unexpectedly emerged from her own bedroom door. Her nose was stuck in a book, and as such wasn’t really looking where she was going. Robin nearly ran into her, though he needn’t worry, Raven probably would have changed directions anyway. She was empathic. Looking up from the ancient text she was engrossed in she saw Robin catch his footing.
“Morning.” Raven greeted him simply.
“Good Morning.” Robin replied back, with a slight aggravation in his voice. “Next time I should watch where I’m going.”
“Cute.” Raven raised an eyebrow, a flicker of a smile played at the corner of her lips.
“Are you hungry? We should get some breakfast.” Robin wisely decided to change the subject.
As they continued along together, they remained silent.

The way that Jason was living, Dick found it quite pathetic. So pathetic, it made him feel horrible. It made him feel sorry that he didn't find him sooner. But that wasn't in his power. After searching for so long with no luck, Bruce was on the verge of giving up, and thinking that it would be no use. He told Dick to not stress over it, and that it's not his problem. He couldn't be a part of it.
So, of course, he felt bad when he found him. With what condition he was in, he couldn't bring him back to Bruce right away. He found him sleeping, shaking, with watery eyes. It was dark, and had to be no later than eleven at night.
He held onto his waist, and brought him to his feet. Jason stayed as still as possible, and Dick had to take his arms, and place them around his neck so that he could get a better hold of him. Dick was a little disappointed
A Robins Christmas Carol"Come on, Damian, it will be fun!" said Sam Kane. He was dressed in Victorian costume as a boy of the lower middle class, his blond hair covered with a cap, a mock crutch twirling in his hand (a trick he learned from Dick Grayson, aka Nightwing), and his blue eyes sparkled with Christmas spirit. He and Damian were looking out the window of Wayne Manor's living room at the snow.

"Well, Doctor Kane, it's nice of you to help us get more of these patients looked at," said Dr. Leslie Thompkins. The silver haired middle aged woman looked at the young man as he wrapped the wrist of a child.
"Well, Bruce kinda forced me to come down here to check on things." said Joseph Kane as he finished the bandage. He turned to the child, "Now I want you to rest this wrist for a few days. Nothing intensive, do you understand?"
"Yes, Doctor Kane," said the kid as he ran off to meet up with his mom in the lobby.
Joseph turned to Leslie, "Bruce sent me to talk to you about the medication issues."
Leslie nodded, "In my office." They went into her office and Leslie invited Joseph to sit. Both knew their mutual benefactor's secret life, and both knew what was going on is important.
"I don't oversee Wayne Pharmaceuticals, Leslie, so I don't know why I was sent."
"You know, Joseph, that Bruce wants this to be discreet."

He was wrong.
His little brother had been attacked. Robin had been attacked, but not as Robin and not on a mission.
Tim Drake had been attacked in, what they all had believed was, the safety of Wayne manor. They had all been so careful. It didn't seem possible that this would happen.
Yet, here Nightwing, no, Dick Grayson, concerned brother, sat waiting for Tim to wake. They were currently in the medical bay at Mt. Justice. Dick thought it would be safer seeing as Tim had been attacked in his own home.
He still couldn't believe it. He could still hear Alfred's panicked voice in his head.
The butler had found Tim in a completely destroyed Bat Cave. The place had been totally trashed. Alfred had been lucky enough to find the supplies needed to patch Tim up.

It was all he could say as he laid on the floor of the bioship. It was pathetic, him bleeding on the floor, helplessly watching his team try to save him. He always hated the feeling, the one where he felt as if he could do nothing. He has been feeling it too much lately. Maybe it was the reason why he tried too hard to play the game that was his life.
Maybe he had just wanted to win.
Coughing, he tired to clear his throat of the blood that was bubbling out of his mouth. Then went another shot in the arm, another scream for medical supplies, another hand pressing down on his injuries. Blurry visions of green and blonde, mixed with black and blue flashed before him. Licking his dry, cracked lips, he closed his eyes.
He just wanted to win.
Taking a shaky breath, he whispered the words again. "I'll find someway to redeem myself to you." Really, it was an empty promise (all his promises were). Nevertheless, this was one he wanted to make

As Sherlock Holmes readied himself for another case at his residence on 221 Baker Street, below the floorboards his mouse counterpart, Basil of Baker Street, perused the newspapers in search of a case of his own. His partner, Dr. David Q. Dawson, was over for his daily spot of tea, when Basil’s newest addition to his household unlocked the front door and entered; reporter Nellie Brie, fresh off the boat from America and still doing her best to adjust to life in England. She had just been out for a while to get some fresh air and run an errand, opening the door and shaking her umbrella off before placing it in a basket beside the door. She carried a long rectangular package under her arm.
“Ah, welcome back Ms. Brie,” Dawson greeted her, “I trust all went well?”

Well, so she thought.
"Recognized, Robin. B01." The robotic voice of the Cave computer said slowly.
Artemis groaned inwardly, and tried to sink herself further into the novel she was reading.
'Just when I had some peace and quiet.' She growled to herself. 'Now the troll wonder is here '
Thankfully though, Robin didn't seem to notice that anyone else was in the Cave. In fact, he passed right by the library.
At first, Artemis had thought she was hearing things, and squinted at the letters on the page, hoping it would go away.
When it didn't stop, she got up and stalked to the door, thinking that somehow the stereo or radio had turned on.
But when the door slid open, she was greeted by something else entirely.
It couldn't have been her ears being messed up, because she cou

Lucy sat in her dad's lab and finished the multiplication page that she was working on. She loved the days that her dad worked in the lab, because that meant she got to do school there. School was fun for her, because it was so easy. She was able to remember things very easily, which made it easy for her to learn a lot of stuff. It just stuck with her. Like, she knew all the 50 states, every president and vice president, the times tables up to 12, and other things, like that there was a man before Columbus who discovered America. At first, her dad had to be very careful to make sure that Lucy was really learning everything, but she proved that she had learned all of it by getting perfect scores on all her tests. Shutting her book, Lucy hopped down from the table and went over to where her dad was working. "I finished," she said handing him the book.

Many years after the war with the Frost Giants, a warrior and so-called friend close to the Allfather, Odin, tried to rise up against the king with dark powers that had transformed him into an evil enemy. He was a formidable opponent, but the powerful Odin was able to cast him out, banishing him out of Asgard. Before he was cast out though, Massnordore tried to take his newborn daughter with him, in hopes of training her up as she grew.

Just as Massnordore was about to catch them, Lilia sent the baby with a trusted friend to be taken to Midgard, in hopes that the baby would be safe from him for the time being. Enraged by his wife's betrayal, he struck her down. Lilia died protecting her most precious treasure.
