Five YearsRobin. Stand up straight. Slouching creates bad posture.Five Years6 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
Eleven year-old Robin pouted at the reprimand but did what he was told and stood more erect. He glanced up at his mentor, Batman, whose face adorned a careful but neutral mask. One that he wore often, Robin had quickly learned. He ripped his gaze away from the caped crusader and took in the immense control center of the Watchtower, an outer space-stationed headquarters for the Justice League.
He knew that he should not be here. Heck, it was evident that Batman was reluctant to let him tag along, but being that Alfred had too many things to do to keep what Batman would call a full-on monitored babysitting in check, here they were.
So...whats your meeting about? Robin asked hopefully. Is Gorilla Grod causing trouble in Africa again?
Im not sure. But its mandatory for me to be there, according to Superman, so Im sure its very important.

You followed the sound of their voices, trying not to stumble in your fragile state. Soon you entered a shop, where reminders of what you just went through were laid out left and right. You really hated crying.
You stumbled out of the shop, downright sobbing now. People looked at you in concern, but no one intervened. Finding a bench, you sat and pulled your knees up to your chest.
Harry Potter. It was NOT just a book series to you. It was a big chunk of your life- your whole childhood, even.

Deepest Darkest Leo’s dreams tasted different that night.Deepest Darkest1 year ago in Drama More Like This
After watching his worst fears paraded before his eyes, he wondered (head heavy on his pillow) if they would follow him into slumber, a never-ending repetition of his recent nightmares. Or would he actually sleep soundly, his brain exhausted from the day’s chaos?
Mmm. No such luck.
It’s cold. And dark.
Where- where am I? Where’s-?

Anthropomorphic: an Interview with the Wolf ScribeThe day is Wednesday, though they are calling it Wolfsday now. The wolf known only as Scribe sits at a desk, tapping the sheet of paper in front of him with a single digit of his paw. Despite what his name suggests, he is the liaison between the wolf leader and the US, and is a wolf of high notoriety. He read the transcript of my interview with one of his kin multiple times, and is meticulous about the details. Apparently he approved of my work, since he agreed to meet. It is important to note that he requested this interview, not the other way around. His accent suggests he was originally British.Anthropomorphic: an Interview with the Wolf Scribe1 year ago in Short Stories More Like This

"Crap, my head is on fire."
"Move your feet Wally, you're hurting me!"
"Is everyone alright?"
"Does anyone know what happened?"
"Shut up!" Robin finally hissed. He carefully scanned the room around them. "We're in some sort of holding cell; we need to figure a way out of here."
"Holding cell? How did this happen? We would have noticed someone kidnapping us." Miss Martian wondered aloud.
"That's not what matters now. What matters now is that we get out of here alive." Aqualad studied the room closely. "Robin, hacking and escape techniques are your area of expertise. Do you have any thoughts on our current situation?" He asked. The team looked to their youngest member.
"I'm trying now but this one's tricky. It's almost exactly like Bat- got it." The cell's doors slid open and the six youths darted to freedom. "I'm working on the alarms but there's no way of knowing if they haven't already been set off." Robin warned.
"Then we keep moving." Artemis reached behind her expectantly

"This has gotten ridiculous." Artemis threw her hands up. "Don't you guys get it?! We're back to square one with these people! We're not heroes to them! We're just children that need to be controlled."
"Chill Artemis. We just need to remain calm and keep our heads on straight." Robin managed to keep his brave face while on the inside, he was feeling the exact same way.
"No! We're just as good! We've battled the Injustice League, we've tangoed with the worst of the worst. At least in our dimension we'd finally earned a modicum of respect. This? This is not okay! We're back in a holding cell and we just let them put us here. It's insane!"
"She's right." Wally agreed. "Look at Rob. He's more field experience than a lot of the people actually in The League and we're all still just sidekicks. We'll always be sidekicks." Wally said in a defeated tone.

"I told you not to follow me." Batman said, breaking the silence that had permeated the Batcave. He sat in front of his computer screen with Robin next to him, the boy working anxiously on tightening his bandage.
"And I chose not to listen to you. I thought we'd handled that already." Robin did not look up from his work. The damage done to his would-be mentor's arm had been severe. Still, ever since they had returned to the cave, the man had showed him nothing but disdain. The whole situation was beginning to work Robin's nerves.
"You should have followed my orders-"
"And where would you be if I had?" He finally snapped. Robin couldn't believe he was being reprimanded for saving a man's life.
"You need to learn discipline. You acted recklessly and you could have gotten yourself or both of us killed. What good would that have done?" Bruce wanted to rub his temples. He couldn't help but feel as if he were talking to a three year old. How could a boy he supposedly trained be so

"Roy? Are you really awake this time or are you just pulling my leg again?" That voice, he knew that voice.
"Thank god!" Artemis sighed in exhaustion. She was so tired. She hadn't slept in so long.
"What are you doing here?" Roy asked groggily. Where was he? He tried to look around the room.
"Don't sit up-oh you're just going to try anyway. You're hurt pretty bad but Green Arrow thinks-"
"You've got to be effin' kidding me! I'm at Ollie's? Damnit!" Roy shot up in the bed, wincing slightly as his ribs protested. Yeah, he recognized the decor. He was definitely in Ollie's makeshift medical ward.

He knew exactly how he'd gotten himself into this mess.
She'd wanted to go to "the mall of shopping" as she called it. She'd pestered Raven on and off all morning. When Raven finally locked herself up in her room and refused to answer the door, Starfire had come to him. She had looked so sad, and despite the fact that he had a lot of work to do, his protests were brief and the next thing he knew, they were zooming towards the mall on his R-cycle, Starfire's arms coiled tightly around his waist.
"A trip to the mall won't be so bad," he'd thought to himself as they zipped along. "We'll get some pretzels (with lots of mustard, she'll like that), go to the sporting goods store and check out some training equipment, maybe go to the arcade. Yeah, this could be fun."

For the first time in over a year, the Teen Titans had a quiet night to themselves. It felt good to not have to be gear up for a major fight or having to bag a criminal for a change; so good, that each Titan decided to each do something separate. Beast Boy went miniature golfing with Terra, while Raven decided to meditate alone in her room, and Cyborg dared to construct a new stereo system for the T-car. That left just the two remaining Titans, Starfire and Robin to figure out something to do with their free nights.
As the Boy Wonder thought about what he would do, something caught his eye that made him lose complete track of what he would do that night; he suddenly couldn't help but become lost at the sight of Starfire's silky red hair reflecting the bright light of the moon through the window. With everyone out of the house now, and both of them not having anything to do themselves, Robin felt this could be the perfect time to let Starfire know how he felt about her.

In fact, he wanted them to leave him alone to suffer. Then he could learn from his mistake.
Well, he wanted all of them to leave. All of them except...

"Uncle B! How are you doing this?" He asked. There, on the main screen of the Justice League's monitor womb was their world's entire Justice League. The team was met with smiles and relief. Ray's modified suit had been hooked up to the main consul and used to display the images.

In search of rubber-duck
All the stores sold out
And Flash is out of luck
The last one in the world
Gets mangled in a fight
Crashed into tiny pieces

Big bad monkey kills the Ducky

Claro, hubiesen llegado antes pero a la gata se le daba por parar a descansar cada cinco minutos, lo cual los retrasó bastante. Igual era razonable, ella estaba embarazada. No era como si pudiera correr a toda velocidad sin cansarse.
