Author's Note: This fic came to me after I heard, then saw the video for, the A Great Big World & Christina Aguilera duet "Say Something". It struck something in me and... well, this story is what came of it. If you haven't heard it, it can be found here: Say Something.

Warning: I never thought I would write one of these, but it turns out I was wrong. Not only is this a sonfic (something I'm not a big fan of) but it is also a Death!Fic.

"Hey, don't worry. It's just like flying." Dick smiled, reassuringly to the smaller person in his arms.
"Grayson, shut your mouth before I shut it for you." Damian glared back into the giddy face of his supposed "older brother." Dick chuckled and grasped Damian's hands, placing them on his waist before letting his own hands drop on Damian's shoulders.
"Now take a step forward and " Damian complied- Dick's movement's matching his. "It's easy, see?"
Damian nodded, lost at watching his and Dick's feet shuffle back in forth in tune to the music which played at the far end of the room. "Damian, you don't dance looking at your feet the whole time; It's not very romantic."
Dick laughed as Damian looked up, abruptly, with a scowl on his face.

Clark is the perfect picture of doting fatherhood. He gathers his son Conner up in a tight hug and presses a series of smacking kisses to the top of the giggling boy's head. The bespectacled man doesn't even bat an eye as his rambunctious two-year-old curls his chubby fingers into a tiny fist and beats them against his father's cheek with a cry of "wan' cupcake" ringing in the air.
In contrast, Bruce, while no less of a loving father, is more restrained with his young son. He crouches down so that Tim can wind his arms around his neck and then stands with one hand pressed to his son's back to keep him from falling. "You look tired, Tim," he murmurs as he catches his son sticking his thumb into his mouth as he cuddles close to his father and rests his head on his shoulder.
Tim nods his little head and then yawns widely as he rubs at his face with one hand. "Sleepy," he murmurs in drowsy agreement

He couldn't stand Jason, his snarkiness, the scent of cigarettes, the pesky fringe of white hair, and his lack of temper control. Yet something about Jason kept him from running away. The music slowed and the space between them vanished. Looking up with a scowl upon his face, grumbling Terry sighed
"Jason its a waltz, not a tango."
His faced flushed and tried to move away but Jason kept him from breaking away. Terry opened his mouth to speak but was met with Jason's rough chapped lips. The air froze around them seeming an hour but in reality only for a few seconds.
"Shh, let me just enjoy this one dance with you."
With those words he was brought back down to Earth. Nothing mattered anymore, the music, the style, the steps, Jason's scent of cigarettes, or the fuzzy warm feeling rushing through his veins. Knees weak,, he
The Joker Queen: Chapter 1The sun was still bright, casting a diffused light through the green treetops as she rested her arm across her forehead to shade her eyes. Her feet dangled into the crystal-clear, gently flowing brook, and the wind ruffled her hair. She was holding the hand of a teenage boy in her left hand; his patched pants were rolled up so his pale feet could hang in the stream next to hers. He squinted up at the sky and watched the clouds drift by with his alert red eyes. He rolled over and grinned at her suddenly, and she broke into an equal grin that twinkled her grass-green eyes.The Joker Queen: Chapter 13 years ago in Romance More Like This
"Just one more day, liebeling!" he exclaimed ecstatically. "Then we can get the hell out of here and to some place much more awesome." He brushed the hair off her forehead and kissed it briefly.

A clock tower in the distance chimed ten times and the albino furrowed his brow in annoyance. "That's the call for my sect

"Destroyed by those living in it when the Clench hit."
Batman nodded, "How is Nightwing?"
Joseph looked over to where Alfred was fussing over Nightwing's injuries from taking on Firefly. Joseph's little brother Sam and Damian Wayne were watching as Alfred was trying to make Nightwing sit still.

Gamma Squad returned from their mission and approached the nexus of computers where Superboy and Miss Martian were standing. Superboy turned to face them.
Robin aka Tim Drake, Lagoon Boy aka La'Gann, Static aka Virgil Hawkins, Blue Beetle aka Jaimie Reyes and Impulse aka Bart Allen looked at each other, looking incredibly embarrassed. Robin, being the leader of the squad, sighed. "Parasite escaped."
"Yeah, and kicked our butts. It was so mode!" whined Impulse.
"Well we should have gotten better intel," grumbled La'Gann, who was still sore at the fact his ex had gotten back with her old boyfriend.
"To be fair, I shouldn't have overcharged him," said Static.
"Ya think?" retorted Blue Beetle.
If you did, we wouldn't have lost the Parasite! The Scarab said snarkily to his host.
"If only Nightwing was here..." began Robin.
"Well he isn't!" growled Superboy. "We know he is still suffering from what happened!" He then when quiet. "When we lost Wally." He sighed

Rating: T for Jay's mouth.
Summary: Dick chose Damian as his Robin, and Tim feels hurt. Tim has a run-in with Jason and finally can empathize with why Jason calls him "Replacement."
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 <

She whirled about in shock, green eyes going wide at the sight of the figure walking on the lower platform. His suit hissed as it expelled frosty air, and his red eyes narrowed in slight irritation.
“Oh.” She said in delayed shock. “It's you. I thought Batman had already found me.”
“No.” Mr. Freeze answered flatly.

First Kiss(es) For a nine-year-old, Dick Grayson was looking pretty smooth.

“Come on Gordon! I know you want to!” Dick teasingly insisted to his fiery companion.
“No in a million years Grayson.” Barbara snapped back. Her fiery red hair was curled to perfection for this special occasion and her sparkling green dress matched her eyes to a tee. Her white tights were already ripped from climbing under that dessert tables with Dick to try and sneak some goodies (only to be caught by Alfred, that sour-sport). Even at nine, Babs was stunning. And Dick knew it.

He wasn’t sure if he was in a room or out in the open. Everything was white, but there weren’t any walls, doors, or windows to make Dick think he was in a room. Light reflected off the white, making Dick wince at how bright it was.
Dick rubbed his eyes with the heels of his hands, feeling a migraine rippling through this head. He slowly stood up and looked around, “Hello?”
Dick whirled around at the sound of the voice behind him. “Jason!” Dick ran, his arms outstretched, itching to hold Jason. He threw himself at Jason, knocking them back several steps. Dick sighed at the familiar feeling of Jason’s arms

The coffin was small, too small for an adult, and this added to the deep sense of loss that lodged itself within the hearts of those present. Almost everyone had stepped forward already to pay their respects, then resumed position, heads bowed and hands folded. A few faces were cast down, rivers of tears running silent down their cheeks, while others were raised, dry but cold, pain shining brightly in their eyes.
"Alright, if there are no further--"
Then one figure stepped forward from among the gathered, leaving the relative dry sanctuary of the umbrellas and reaching out, pain and conflicting emotions playing across his face. Those surrounding the coffin stepped back, startled, and watched as Tim Drake's mouth twiste

One stormy winter’s night, Queen Chrysalis was rudely awoken from uneasy dreams to the sound of a loud crash.
She was up from her desk and on all fours in an instant, the sounds of an old stallion's yells and cannon fire still ringing loud in her ears. Her head twisted in several directions in a determined search of some unseen threat. For one horrifying moment, she might have sworn the cannon fire was still happening and her large, gnarled horn instinctively came aglow. It was the enemy! The city was under attack!
It took a moment for her still blurred mind to remember that that was nonsense, the mental ravings of a lethargic, unfocused mare still caught up in her fleeting dreams. She quickly managed to put together that the sound that awoke her was nothing but a simple roar of thunder coming from the storm raging on outside.
Trotting steadily over to a small window, she peered out at the heavy rain pounding against the pane. I

I stared down at my best friend as he lay silently in the cold, metal hospital bed. There were various monitors and IV drips hooked up to him and an oxygen mask covered his pale face. The room was completely still and silent but for the slow, regular beeping coming from his heart monitor. A brisk wind blew through the pen window showing the first signs of the cold winter approaching, still he did not stir.
He hadn't woken since the collision when a drunken truck driver had hit the small car we'd been using to return home from a mathletes competition. Me, the other passenger and the driver had gotten away from it with only minor injuries, I only had a few cuts and bruises and a broken arm, Dick had not been so lucky. The car had swerved to try and avoid the oncoming truck but this had only resulted in the drunk hitting the back of the car, on the side where Dick had been sitting.
