Author's Note: A while back, I held a poll on which RiD one-shot I would write next. This one came in 4th on Deviant Art with 13% of the vote and 3rd on with 14% of the vote. I've tried to write the others before it, but they weren't cooperating so here we are!
This has been a nibble in my mind for a while now and I think I've broken through my writer's block enough to get this out. I hope it meets my expectations as well as yours. It begins during the battle on Malina Island at the end of the second season episode "Alienated".
Disclaimer: Young Justice is not mine; Batman/Robin/et al are not mine; basically none of it is mine but I'm playing with them anyway! I promise I'll return them when I'm done with them… hopefully with all the right pieces. *EvilGrin*

Five and One - Okay, make it Six
SUMMARY: (AU) Five times a Cat got the better of a Bat and the one time... well, maybe we should just make it six.
AUTHOR'S NOTES: This little nibble struck me the other day after I was going through my favorites over on DA trying to get some inspiration for a few YJ pieces I'm working on. Then I saw this image by Callousvixen:
It's a shame they never got to introduce Catwoman to the Young Justice Verse. There are so many versions of Catwoman that do the character justice, but I think I'm most fond of the Animated version from the 90s. She was just the perfect counterpoint for Batman. However, I adored Anne Hathaway's costume from The Dark Knight Rises so that's what I've based the look on. Google it if you'd like a reference.
This story is pure ridiculous. I started writing it and it just kept getting worse and worse. And I love every wo
Popular Mechanics For Lovers [Bruce/Dick, PG-13]The shouting is first, and it always begins with Dick. In Tim's mind, few things are scarier than the roar of Dick's voice, raised to fever pitch and shouting bloody murder loud enough to echo up to the bedrooms.Popular Mechanics For Lovers [Bruce/Dick, PG-13]2 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
Bruce's bellowing comes close. Because it sounds nothing like a raging Batman, or Brucie Wayne on the rampage in the company boardroom. Sentences break, twisting into cracked fragments, and words falter into shaky growls; this is a side of Bruce that only Dick and Alfred are allowed to see -- open, raw, exposed.
Only Dick has the privilege of knowing this Bruce, intimately. Tim and the others grab at flickers, in the secret looks that sometimes pass between Dick and Bruce, when they think nobody's looking, or in the intimate moments that are inadvertently walked in on. (Inadvertently for Tim. Damian might just do it on purpose.)
This is the true Bruce, laid completely bare during these fights, and he's matched entirely by the narrow-eyed, pinch-lipped Dick who lurks dee

It's barely there; anyone else wouldn't have even heard it, but I do, and it makes one of my eyes pop open. Of course, it's not like I was asleep in the first place. It's been raining like crazy outside for the past five hours. Thunder, lightning, the works. I'd actually like to get some sleep when I don't have to "work" ya know. I glance at my bedroom doorway out into the hall and see a shadow just at the edge. Too small and hesitant to be Alfred. That leaves only one person and I'm really not that surprised.
"Damian?" I call out softly. The shadow flinches, hesitates, then draws closer until the little devil comes into clear view. He's dressed down in his lime green pajamas with kittens on them, feet bare, and hair a tangled mess. He's scowling at me like he always does but there's something else besides annoyance hidden in those blue eyes. I wouldn't tell him that though. Kid needs his pride.

I slam my bedroom door hard behind me as I storm through the manor towards the batcave. For the first time in my life, i was actually getting some damn sleep when Father called through some hidden device in my room. He'd said to come down to the Batcave immediately, without any question. He didn't say it was a mission. He didn't say it was urgent. Just to get down there.
Even though these people are my family, they irritate me to no end. Father is commanding, Alfred is too non-chalant, and Grayson-where do I even start with Grayson? He's too easy-going, joking, laid-back, irresponsible, bossy-the list could go on and on. If it wasn't for being loyal to my father's way, I probably would have killed him by now.
I've gone soft.
I flip the hidden switch and wait for the entrance to be revealed to me, then storm down the stairs, scowling as my family comes into sight.
"What do you want now?" I start. "I was actually trying to-"

If that's fine with you." You smiled and nodded your head. After a few more minutes of walking Jason broke the silence and said "I have a question." "Yea?" "Do you like action and stuff like that?"

When you got to his house, it looked big enough for two people to live in. When you walked in, to the right you could see a TV with a recliner to the side and a three seater in front of the TV. To the left was a kitchen and a door that you were guessing was the bathroom. Straight ahead was a hallway that had two doors.
EmotionsDamian Wayne wouldn't call himself sentimental, not by a long shot. In fact, he prided himself on being one of the least emotional people he knew.Emotions3 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
Emotions only proved to be a hindrance, after all. No good would ever come from them in the heat of battle, so there really was no use for them other than as tools to procure girlfriends. And with his good looks and natural charm, he already had all the necessary measures to obtain any girl he wanted. Not that any of them were good enough, of course.
Besides, emotional guys were more girly than he deemed socially acceptable. Once a man confesses his feelings to the world, there's no stopping his descent into full-out girliness.
Just take Drake for example: he goes about, prancing like an idiot no less, and practically declaims to the entire planet that he and Superboy are best friends. This just sets off numerous rumors that they are actually lovers, which Damian dearly, truly hopes they are not. The sight of Drake parading around the Manor

"Never," he replies sharply. I just chuckle at his childish attitude before turning back to the Batcomputer to type in the report, the cave going silent. About halfway through, a word breaks through the silence, so soft I almost don't hear it.
"However..." I hear quietly behind me. I turn my head just enough to glance over my shoulder and catch a glimpse of the barely noticeable blush on Damian's cheeks before he looks away. I can't keep myself from smiling at it.

My vision finally began to blur as the door slowly opened. I soon became alert. A little figure slowly entered the room. With the curtains opened it was easier to tell the little figure was Damian in his finlet PJ’s with a hood attached to the shirt (curtsy of Alfred), with the light of the moon I could see the tears rolling down his face. I knew what to do after all this was the sixth time this month this has happened. I picked Damian up and walked over to my bed, as I sat down he instantly curled and pressed his face against my body. I realised was hugging the teddy bear I “secretly” put in his room. I rubbed his head and hugged him as the tears went down his face...”The nightmare again?” I asked although I knew the answer. He simply nodded and hugged the teddy bear tighter.

Nightwing slowly got to his shaky feet, the pain from the shock still evident in his facial features. He looked to see Conner still on the ground, he ran as fast as his wobbly legs let him, stumbling as he went. Kneeling down, he began to shake Conner. "Come on Supy, you have to wake up!" he desperately said, he deactivated Conner's collar, and his own as he tried to rouse Conner. He knew that the whole 'I let go of this button you all die' was a hoax, but he didn't doubt that Kaldur would actually blow up the Mountain. After all, Kaldur was a double agent; he needed to keep up an appearance.
He needed to get Conner out of here, he wouldn't leave anyone behind. Running towards the entertainment room he quickly saw Sphere and Wolf; both were looking at Nightwing oddly Nightwing ran over and deactivated Wolf's collar.

Dick grinned at the harsh tone of voice the boy beside him used. The protest went unmet and he continued to hold the stick over the small fire, the marshmallow blackening on one end.
"Burning it is what makes it good,” he answered. ”You clearly have a lot to learn about camping.”
The boy sighed, annoyed. ”TT. Isn’t there something more productive we could be doing, Grayson?”
Tonight was a rarity in their routine: a night off. Such a rarity, in fact, that Dick had decided to make the best of it and take his partner out for something he’d never experienced before. Dick had always loved camping, and he didn’t get to do it enough; he was determined to see to it that Damian loved it as well. When Bruce had offered them the night off, he gladly accepted. And when he told Damian they were going camping for the weekend, the boy had grumbled. ”Camping?” he had s

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

Dick blinks at him with surprise. While Jason's profanity is no longer anything to blink at, the disbelief in the boy's voice is questioning.
"What's the problem?"
Jason looks at him with further incredulity. "What is that?"
"It's a blanket. For the movie, remember?" The older boy still doesn't understand the reason behind his brother's indignation.
"Of course I remember the movie! I'm not stupid. What I mean is, why the hell is that blanket baby blue with clouds on it? It's totally girly!"
Dick frowns with his own bout of outrage. Alfred would say he's pouting. He begs to differ. He's simply showcasing his anger through lip-language.
"Excuse you?! I'll have you know this blanket is a novelty item, and it was given to me by someone very dear. It's special, and it's design is one-of-a-kind."

He's limbs ached, his legs weren't moving, and blood was seeping from his costume. Every step the person carrying him took, more pain followed. His arms were on fire, and yet he was cold. Sweat covered his forehead, plastering his raven locks to his head. He let out sharp gasps, each breath he took, the harder it got to breath. He wheezed out each breath. His lungs on fire, as barley any air went into them. He was grateful he was only half conscious, for he knew that he would be in so much more pain if he was fully conscious.
He opened his eyes slightly; blurry figures looked down at him worriedly. He couldn't make them out. But by the skin texture and the builds, he figured Conner was the one carrying him, and Mal was walking with him. He once again wheezed out a breath. He kept his eyes open as long as he could, before everything went black again. His last thought still running through his head, 'What the heck did I just get myself into

The team had just finished four hours of intensive training as they trudged into the living room, unanimously collapsing onto their currently beloved sectional couch. Exhausted from non-stop combat with both themselves and their teacher, no one bothered to move an inch.
That is, until someone mumbled the suggestion of turning the television on. Wally being the closest to the remote lazily reached for the contraption and then proceeded to flip channels.
