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

The tall man in front of us suddenly stopped in his tracks. He looked at us with a raised eyebrow, darted his gaze down to his feet, looking very confused, and then continued walking.
"You're so mean, Keroro-kun "
Dororo whimpered as he slowly crawled up from the ground.
"Gero, sorry, Dororo."
"How could you, Keroro-kun? Pushing me under his big fat shoe when he was about to step on you! You sacrificed me so I could be squished flat for you! So sly, Keroro-kun! So sly!"
"Hehe, Dorobune Senpai was used as a meat shield again desu."
"This sure is a crowded street." Giroro Senpai said beside me.
He was right. We were in the very overcrowded city of Nagoya, located in the centre of the country, the Chubu region, being stuck right in between the Kanto and Kansai region. This populated city was like that train station, but instead of aliens, it was jam packed with Pekoponjins. They couldn't see through our anti-barrier and treated us as air.

I loathe February.
Okay. Bit extreme don't you think? To hate an entire month?
On the contrary, I find it rather reasonable.
Right. And why do you suddenly hate February so much?
I'd have thought that was obvious.
Well maybe it is, but I haven't fully recovered from the pub night with Greg...
As I'm well aware considering I'm in Tesco on my own doing the weekly shopping.
Stop complaining. I always do the shopping. Once isn't going to hurt you.
I beg to differ. The cacophony of love ballads and excessive usage of pink just might do the trick.
Are they using a frankly alarming shade?
What? Is that some sort of reference to one of those inane movies you forced me to watch the other night?
No – and Star Wars is not inane! It was something you said during Study in Pink...
They are too. How am I to know which case you're referring to if you insist on using your ridiculous b

You really don't see a problem with this?
No. I need the information and I'm asking for it.
And why do you need the information?
For the case obviously.
How are my clothes relevant to the case?
Because I need you to meet someone at a cafe for me when you go to lunch.
And you need to know what I'm wearing because?
I need to ensure that your outfit won't be out of place for your cover.
My cover? Why can't you do it?
I'm working another angle.
Fine. What's my cover?

I got an invitation in the mail to your wedding this morning
Are you going to make it?
You really are getting married?
Oh - wow. I thought it was a joke or something.
Why would you think that?
Well I just never thought Sherlock would go for something like that. But then I never thought he would go for a romantic relationship at all, so shows what I know.
Well he has a very logical reason behind it.
I'm sure he does. How did you propose?
Sherlock proposed to me.
Oh my god!
Like I said, he had a logical explanation behind it.
Still, that's really romantic of him. You two are so sweet.
I don't know about that.
But you are. How did he propose?
Well he asked me one night in the flat - but I wasn't there.
Why would he ask when you weren't there?

A greeting card is important to a case?
Yes, as the killer sent it to the victim.

Because we need to pull security footage to get a visual on him.
Oh. Don't suppose there's any chance of you leaving it until tomorrow and coming home?
Certainly not. Will you ever stop asking stupid questions?
Nope. I enjoy annoying you too much
That explains a lot.

TeaJohn limped up the stairs into his flat and entered the kitchen to make himself a cup of tea. He had just paid his daily visit to Sherlock's grave, and that always made him depressed.Tea2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
When the tea was done, he limped heavily into the living room and turned on the telly. He'd never liked crap telly much, but he watched it now as much for nostalgia's sake as just to have noise in the room. It wasn't the same without Sherlock in his armchair yelling at the screen, though. But it was the best he had, and he could imagine all the times Sherlock had gotten angry at some stupid program that John hadn't even been paying attention to.
"Well, is he the boy's father?" John asked of an empty room. When only silence answered him, as it had for the past three years, John sighed and leaned against the back of the couch. He pulled Sherlock's old blue dressing gown over him for warmth, and fell asleep to the sound of the telly.
"You kept that old thing?" John woke with a start at the voice. He knew he
MannequinI think everyone has seen a mannequin before, most likely in clothing stores; those life size models to display outfits and articles of clothing.

I was shopping with my girlfriend, Sandra. She enjoyed fashion and clothing more than I did, to be honest I didn’t care much for fashion choices at all, but I loved her so I went shopping with her at clothes stores.
We entered this particular store, it was rather large. Popular music played all around, and as expected there were clothes everywhere. There were also plastic mannequins, three kinds. There were the mannequins with no heads, mannequins with faces painted on them, and a single mannequin without a face.

You groaned. Something about yourself woke you up, and you raised your head, which was probably the worst mistake so far.
You swayed, and fell back with another groan.
You rolled over onto your back, and winced at the German in front of you.
“H-hi, Luds,” you whispered, smiling, before you covered your eyes with the back of your hand, the smile turning upside down into a grimace.
“(Y/n)?” The sound of cloth rustling hit your ears. “What’s wrong?”
Normally, you’d head for your parents’ room, but you were living alone now…with your German boyfriend as your roommate.
“…could you go get some paracetamol for me?”
There was a rustle of cloth again and dull thumps on the floor before the door creaked open. You turned your head, turned on the side lamp, glanced at the clock. It read five in the morning. Mentally sighing, you turned on your side.

I had never seen John so scared, so angry, so out of control. It frightened me. He was always calm, held himself back, always in control. But he wasn't as I watched him. He breathed rapidly and shallow, I could practically see his heart pounding away in his chest. He was scared stiff by what he had seen, even if it wasn't real.

The Bostonian already regretted not killing the supposedly cursed BLU Spy. Despite his out of character notion to NOT kill him, the little crab repaid the RED mercenary by talking non-stop throughout the night.
"I understand your insecurities about kissing a man, but at the moment I am not a man; I am a crab," he began. "Kissing a crab isn't as you so colorfully described it gay." Scout didn't respond. With his back turned to the aquarium, he tried to ignore the heavily-accented voice and focused on getting some sleep. "Then again, when you think about it...kissing a crab would be unethical, but you do have to agree, it's not gay, oui?"
"I'm tryin' to sleep!" Scout snapped.
"And I am trying to become human again," retorted the Spycrab, using the same tone the Scout used against him. "As long as I believe you are the only who can lift zhis curse, I will haunt you like a ghost. This I promise."

"N-now Alfred..." Arthur began uncertainly, knowing that it was partly his fault for bringing this on. Alfred's mouth twitched, but the expression barely justified as a smirk. Arthur swallowed heavily. He didn't want sex. Not like this. Alfred was intoxicated- it was hardly proper. Alfred would never do such a thing sober. This was just wrong.

The display wasn't anything less than adorable, but there were other pressing matters at hand besides how cute little Alfred could be. Alfred leaned inward, successfully pinning him against the wall.
