Her boots slipped on, hair burned brightly in the growing sunlight, a cool breeze wafted from the balcony.
It was beautiful, this hotel in which they'd decided to create one last memory. Of course, the black haired beauty lying buried in those sweat soaked sheets didn't know it.
It was better this way, she kept telling herself. If anyone could understand leading a new life, it would be him.
'I ask you not to search for me. And let me rephrase this for you, my love, Do Not Search For Me (for I know how stubborn you can be).'
Yes, she knew him better than anyone. Better than he knew himself. Which is why she understood why his birdarang was now plunged deeply with the note onto the wall beside her.
"Not quite the way I expected you to wake up; then again, you are the Boy Wonder."

The soft snip of scissors echoed through Bart’s ears as he stared at the pile of pink and purple paper hearts sitting before him. Jamie sat across from him humming quietly as he cut the hearts and placed them in neat piles in front of him. Bart tapped his feet anxiously as the heavenly aroma of sugar cookies made it’s way up his nose.
Jaime finished the last heart and looked over to Bart. “What ese?” He asked raising an eyebrow to the younger boy.
“Why are we doing this again?” Bart asked scratching his head and turning to look over his head for the hundredth time hoping that the oven would go off soon.
Jaime set down the scissors and folded his arms onto the table and stared at Bart, “Its for Valentines Day. Are you really telling me you have no idea what that is?”
Bart nodded and again looked back into the kitchen the smell clearly getting to him. &
Percy Jackson and the Legend of KorraHey guys! Well, it's been forever since I submitted anything, so I figured I would take you guys up on my last offer. This is a fan-fiction; the characters used therein are NOT MINE!!! Please bear this in mind. This is more of a thank you to the creators of these respective works of fiction. (Not really, but somewhat.) Any who, before I get so far gone no one can understand what I'm typing I present to you a crossover fan-fiction of Percy Jackson and The Legend of Korra. For timeline… I'd say that the Avatarverse (the official term for the Avatar Universe) is just after Amon has been defeated, right when Korra thinks she has fulfilled her end of the deal as the world-saving Avatar. For Percy and his companion(s) (the reason for the parentheses around the 's' is because I still have no idea who will be with him, another factor you should know about: This was made up on the go.) they have just defeated Kronos the Titan, and are taking a nice relaxing demigod break.

Temporary CompanionIt was extremely early in the morning when odd noises resonated from a park. As the noise dyed down a blue police box appeared. A lean and tall red headed male, dressed in a white T-shirt under a red over shirt and jeans, exited the box and looked around. As the red head looked around another male stood in the doorway of the Tardis arms crossed across his chest, this male had short tasseled brown hair, a slim frame and was dressed in a dark brown suit with blue pin stripes, a light blue button up shirt, dark brown tie and a light brown overcoat.Temporary Companion2 years ago in Romance More Like This

His beloved sister, Jeanne-Marie, had been checked into an institution for Dissociative Identity Disorder because Jean-Paul could no longer take care of her on his own, the love of his life had left him for said sister and then died, his two best friends were getting married and were too busy to save time for him, and his superhero team, Alpha Flight, had disbanded. When Charles Xavier asked him to join the X-Men, he accepted in fear that his loneliness would drive him over the edge of sanity.
Though he would never admit it to anyone, he was nervous. He was moving from his quiet life in Canada to a bustling life in New York. Alpha Flight's crime-fighting was miniature compared to the work the X-Men did. And Alpha Flight all lived in their own homes.

Full Name: Maya Emily Mustang
Nickname(s)/Title(s): First Daughter
Date of Birth: December 22nd, 1919
» She began school at age 5, her parents enrolling her in a simple grammar school. Since Ishval was still in the stage of early rebuilding, the school was small and mostly Ishvalan dominated, leaving a lot of discrimination against Maya in the beginning of her schooling that she eventually overcomes. The school was very basic, but Maya was able to study further in her love for reading at home, also picking up knowledge from her parents.
» Once she moves to Central at age 12 when Roy becomes Fuhrer, she is enrolled in an elite private academy primarily for her new high status as First Daughter; however she is also fairly intelligent. The school, Kingston Academy, is for grades 6-12, and Maya is in her junior year (year 11) in the present time of her story.

"Jaime, we're gonna head out. Gar's staying at my place and Batman's gonna kill me if I'm late again." Tim mentioned as the duo headed towards the door. "We're heading the same way as Central city if you wanna wake Bart up."
"Nah, he's spending the night so it's fine." Jaime explained as the other two nodded and left. Jaime hopped off the couch and turned the t.v. off, figuring Bart was out for the rest of the night. He looked back at the sleeping figure on the couch.
'Better take him to my room.' Jaime thought as he lowered himself to the ground. Jaime picked Bart up, astonished at how light he was. He knew Bart was slim, but he hadn't expected the speedster to be that small. 'How much does he even weigh?'

AUTHOR'S NOTE: I've been sitting on this one for a while. I didn't know if I liked it when I first wrote it and then I kind of forgot about it. However, my new poll has reminded me that many of you want to see more in the Linchpin verse, so I dug this out and cleaned it up a bit. It's nothing but pure fluff – which is why I think I'm so iffy about it. There is no Robin Torture at all in it! Seriously!

Everyone was congratulating each other on a job well done.
"Hey hermano," a voice said from behind him.
Impulse spun on his heel to stare into the blue and yellow face of Blue Beetle.
Unsurprisingly Bart's body reacted faster than his brain and he jumped up to hug the teller teen around the neck. "Dude, how crash was I?" He asked excitedly!
"You did okay?" Blue Beetle commented.
Impulse let go of the armored teen. "Okay? OKAY?! Dude, I don't know what fight you were a part of but I took down The Brain. THE BRAIN!"

Morgan and Garcia were both in Garcia's office, both trying to steal a moment together. They both knew making out in the office wasn't the best idea, but it was such a turn-on.
Their relationship was still a secret from the team. They were still new in it, so they weren't ready to tell their friends yet.
Garcia moaned as Morgan ran his fingers through her red hair and the other caressed her thigh.
"Mmmm, Derek." She moaned, as Morgan sat on her chair, dragging her to his lap. They had another heated lip lock, hand gripping whatever they could touch, while making the chair squeaked suddenly. Garcia was about to put her hands under Morgan's shirt when her door flew open, revealing Spencer Reid.

The city of New Detroit was choked with smoke. A dark cloud hung over the ruined shapes of burnt-out buildings and the crumbling remains of towers, and yet more smoke twisted up in billowing columns from recently extinguished fires. The streets buzzed with activity, mostly emergency services crew.
From atop Sumdac tower, which has remained relatively unscathed during the Decepticon clone attack on the city, Autobot Ratchet surveyed the scene and shook his head sadly, his old joints creaking audibly.
"We'll have to come back", the ancient mech mumbled. Stout and broad, yet ill-kept and borderline decrepit, the twenty foot tall, white and red plated Autobot looked grizzled and cheerless as ever, but there was a more sorrowful tinge to his expression than usual.
By his side, Ratchet's commander and friend turned to look at him. He was taller than Ratchet, and to a trained eye it would have been obvious that he was a far younger 'bot, but the excessive b

"Your mission: To protect a prince."
The young boy growled internally. Protect a prince? Great; it wouldn't be as bad as protecting a princess, he knew full well how bratty they could be, but protecting a prince sounded like a complete waste of time.
"You are to not leave his side, understood?" The boy's attention wandered off to a window as his mentor walked to a well-filled shelf while continuing his lecture on the importance of a mission and avoiding any deviations. Richard had heard this same lecture multiple times to the point he could probably mimic every slight inflection his mentor used. Slicing through his mental fog, Bruce said, "You will be protecting him with this sword, Richard."
Knowing full well what that sentence implied, the youngster beamed up at his mentor. In his hands his father figure held a sword out in front of him in a gesture for Richard to take it. As his stomach fluttered nervously he took it in his hands. It was

Name: Shinchiro Isamu
Age: 1388 (Appears to be in his late twenties)
Alliance: 10th Division Captain
Appearance: Captain Shinchiro is a gaunt, skinny man who stands at nearly six feet, six inches tall. Unlike most Shinigami who attain the rank of Captain, Isamu is obviously off-kilter and he shows outward signs of being a megalomaniac. His brown eyes are deep-set and abnormally wide and open - he rarely blinks. Meanwhile, he always seems to be grinning. This grin isn't exactly a smile, but more of an annoying smirk that tells everyone around him that he's severely superior to them. Isamu's nose comes to a point that boasts two bar piercings and a septum ring. His thin lips are complete with snake-bites while his ears are gauged large enough to fit a coin through, giving a window into his love of intimidation. Isamu's black hair is pulled back into a tail that dangles all the way to his knees - held together by black

She keeps the totems hidden in the closet, concealed by a sheath of drawers and shielded with lock and key. There is no particular reason for her to veil them, as they are merely memories. But it is a ritual of sorts for her, and it helps her keep them close. It helps her remember.
Turning the small copper key as her wrist twists, the drawer pops open, revealing flashes of color and old, nearly forgotten images.
She picks up one such artifact, turning it over in her hands, and holds it in front of her, studying it with the eye of a detective. Here we have a young boy, certainly no more than 9 years old. His thick, black hair is tousled upon his head, and his eyes gleam a bright turquoise blue of youth and enthusiasm. She smiles. This is how she will always remember him, when they first locked eyes. All optimism and childlike wonder at the world. Even after all that had happened to him.
