Smoke emitted from the tower. There were screams and cries, but there would be no one who could help them.
Her dark, night hair danced with the flames surrounding the throne room. She looked at the bronze throne with a picture in her right hand. She smiled mischievously and sat on it.
The once-beautiful platinum room was now a dull, sheen-less silver color. The two red velvet curtains hung behind the throne on either side. The right was shredded to pieces as if a cat had clawed it down. The left was set a flame, slowly being engulfed with fire, as of the rest of the room.
The black haired princess propped her left elbow on the throne's once-golden arms and idly looked at the smiling girl in the picture. She debated whether she should crush it or drop it on the floor, to let the flames swallow it up into dark crumbs of ashes. But another idea struck her. She looked at the picture with a bitter look on her face and smiled.
"This time, we'll be even," the dark princess said.

All The RobinsA/N: Instead of a longer drabble, there are sixteen mini-drabbles that are less than four hundred words. (Two are 399 words, haha.) One for each of the five Robins, ten for each pair of Robins (not necessarily romantic), and one bonus drabble at the end. Some of the single drabbles mention a second Robin, but it centers on just one of them. Likewise, some of the pairing drabbles have a third snuck in there, but they're only minor. If this is confusing, just go and read them.All The Robins4 years ago in General Fiction More Like This

One of the things Bruce Wayne had vowed to do when he became the Batman, was to prevent any more children from losing their parents. He already failed to do that with young Dick Grayson, but he made up for it by taking him in, loving him as if he were his own flesh and blood son, and further training him to become Robin, The Boy Wonder. Now he was failing once again when a string of murders were occurring. The only witnesses were small children who said that their “friend”, a clown, had killed their parents.
After doing much detective work and investigation, all fingers were pointed towards their first and only suspect: The Joker. Batman and Robin had spent a good portion of their evening chasing after the murderous psychopath—whom that same evening Joker decided that along with murdering a child’s parents would also steal the family’s important documents, which now caused the crime fighting pair to follow him into a closed ca

She turned in time to see the cloud of fire and rubble advancing, Beast Boy flying at her, his form growing until he was a huge tiger that flattened Raven to the ground. She could smell nothing but fur, feel nothing but the rumble as the explosion shook the road and the terrified beating of Beast Boy's heart. Just when she thought she would be crushed under his weight, Beast Boy rolled off of her.
"What the he-" Raven looked over and saw Beast Boy on all fours, coughing blood onto the debris covered road, his whole body shaking and a huge piece of shrapnel sticking out of his back. "Oh my-Beast Boy!" she cried, crawling through the rubble. "We-we have to get you to a hospital! You-you-"
"You're cute when you're worried." He laughed, but it turned into a cough. He collapsed, but Raven caught him, careful not to touch the pieces of building imbedded in Beast Boy's back.
"What's going on-oh god." Robin appeared at the scene, his clothes smoking and torn. "Raven, what happened?"

She was scared. It didn’t take a master detective to figure that one out. I tired not to be too obvious as I watched her from the corner of my eye; my shades helping to conceal the fact that I might have been creeping, just a little.
We were trying to be normal that night. No mission, no costumes, just a bunch of normal, high school kids, watching a movie and eating whatever they felt like. Wally in particular was taking the eating thing to heart, Artemis trying not to cringe as he inhaled the rest of her nachos.
But there is a distinct problem with a group of superheroes, even teenage ones, trying to act normal. We are acting. We can try as hard as we like, but the truth is we aren’t normal. We don’t le
YJ- That's What You GetYJ- That's What You Get5 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
A/N: Inspired by Paramore's song 'That's What You Get.' It's an amazing song that I think is one of the best two or three songs I have on my iPod that matches Artemis/Wally to a tee. One of the others was Shut Up and Kiss Me by Orianthi, which I was proud to have on my iPod before the swarm of Waltemis shippers starting making tons of fics and AMVs (is that what they're called? LOLOL I forgot. XD) on YouTube, therefore making it a more popular song amongst us shippers.
But I suggest you listen to 'That's What You Get' when you read this. Or before/after. It'll make it even better than already it is. |DD

Letting lose a furious caterwaul, Artemis curled her fist and felt it hit the punching bag, startling waves of numbness beginning to overcome her arm, throbbing from the back draft of the blow.

"I should have known!" Wally growled as he punched the wall. He immediately regretted it and shook the pain off as he placed the tracker on his souvenir shelf. He didn't know why, but he had finally started warming up to Artemis, but then she goes and does the worst thing he could think of. He never imagined that she would have been so insecure that she'd jeopardized the mission. It really hurt him, but honestly, it confused him as well. Why was he feeling so strongly about this? His thoughts were interrupted by someone at the door.
"What the heck man?" Robin said from the door. "Aqualad told Batman about the mission and now he's taking her to somewhere and won't even tell ME the details. Dude, what happened?"
"Artemis insisted on coming with us because Red Arrow was, then she made us go on a wild goose chase so she could track down sports master and Cheshire herself because of how insecure she is now that Roy's joined the team." Wally explained quickly, too angry to

"Are you serious Arty??" Jenna cried in disbelief, "The zombies are attacking and who do you want watching your back? Kid Flash? I mean you could at least choose someone useful, like The Flash or if you're looking for someone younger then maybe Superboy or something but, Kid Flash??? Really???"
Jenna didn't mean to be insulting. She was something of a geek and she knew a good deal about superheroes. Ever since Superman had shown up about fifteen years ago a lot of people had become obsessed with the exploits of the Justice League and lately even the Young Justice League

He lets him past his door without a question and follows him into the kitchen. The boy plops down in one of his chairs and rests his chin on his hand, staring straight ahead with glassy eyes. Roy sits down across from him and folds his hands on the table. He doesn’t say anything, just waits for him to tell him what’s wrong this time, why he’s upset and what he needs.
Dick’s voice is broken when he finally speaks, “Wally.” And then he trails off and looks away, mouth set in a firm line. “I miss him so much.”
Realization hits Roy’s face.
It’s been exactly two years since Wally died, and in that time period, the holes in their hearts have not healed. The tale about time healing all wounds is a lie, because they’re all still hurting. They’re all lost without the ginger who d

Artemis sighed. She was a superhero! She could handle any kind of shit thrown at her, but when it came down to trying to pretend that she didn't like a guy, she was terrible at it. Ever since she saw the 'Wall-man' stumble in, she had been intrigued by him. She did have a crush on him, but she was sure it was one-sided, since he only wanted to blame her for driving Roy away.
Wally cursed himself. He was the ladies man, a smooth talker, known for getting the girl, but Artemis was immune to his skills. It seemed that the only time she ever gave him the time of day was when they were arguing with each other, the rest of the time, she just ignored him. He had to admit, she had driven Roy away, but she was turning out to be quite the replacement. Ever since he had seen her, she was just continuing to attract him, even if they were always arguing.

At train stations, or airports, or anywhere really where people were coming and going, there were always tears. Always. It didn't really matter if they were tears of joy, like the ones coming from a woman with a particularly flashy ring on her finger as she met her well dressed husband, or tears of sadness like the ones coming from the little girl with a bow in her hair and a teddy bear in her hand watching her mother walk into the train without a second glance.
There weren't any tears on her face, though, which was something that she was grateful for. If she had cried she never would have forgiven herself.

A/N: My take on Timmy's feelings about Damian and Dick as the Dynamic Duo. And I added some cute moments between Jay and Tim. This is before Tim became Red Robin.
Timothy Drake-Wayne was miserable. This feeling wasn't uncommon for him, but usually he could keep it at bay. Now, the emotion hit him full force, overwhelming him. Never had he felt so unwanted and alone. Someone else had become Robin. Batman's partner was no longer Tim Drake. Perhaps it was because Batman was no longer Bruce Wayne, or perhaps it was because the new Robin was Bruce Wayne's biological son. No matter what it was, Tim wasn't <

Her amethyst eyes shifted from her latest novel of Earthly dead languages, having found many similarities between the lost languages of humans and dimensions in between, patterns of dialects and the like. She pinched her finger between the pages, clutching the old cover close to her chest as her curiosity got the best of her, arching a slim brow. It was hard to miss that voice.

Inside the house, the fan whirs over two sleeping figures, wrapped in sheets like hot pockets. One of them has his arms slung haphazardly across the bed, his right resting atop his companion. She, on the other hand, sleeps in a contained ball, the blankets covering her chin. The two breath slowly, deeply, as the digital clock switches to 6:30.
