Superboy decided that he didn't care. He was just happy to have climbed all the way up here on his own without using any superpowers. Sure, he could have easily leapt the height of Mount Justice in two or three bounds, but he had wanted to do it this way.
The experience had been just as accelerating as Robin said it would be. He would have to thank the kid later, maybe finally agree to play one of those TV games with him. Sitting with his legs dangling over the edge, he drew in a few deep breaths. He could feel the muscles in his arms vibrating from the exertion and sweat running down his face and back. It felt so good! A small pleasured smile flittered across his face.
"I bet not even Superman's done this without flying or his super strength," Superboy said with a chuckle. Wiping the sweat from
Godly Relationships 51: Defend Your BeliefsIf you're willing to stand up for the things you believe in, you'll make better choices, and you'll build stronger relationships. But if you're one person on Sunday morning and a different person throughout the rest of the week, you'll be doing yourself a big disservice.Godly Relationships 51: Defend Your Beliefs1 year ago in Editorial More Like This
The moment that you decide to stand up for your beliefs, you can no longer be a lukewarm, halfhearted Christian. And, when you are no longer a lukewarm Christian, God rejoices.
So stand up for your beliefs. Remember this: in the battle of good versus evil, the devil never takes a day off...so neither should you.

God does not intend for you to experience mediocre relationships; He created you for greater things. Building lasting relationships requires compassion, wisdom, empathy, kindness, courtesy, and forgiveness.
If that sounds like a lot of work, it is-which is perfectly fine with God. Why? Because He knows that you are cable of that work, and because He knows that the fruits of your labor will enrich the lives of your loved ones and the lives of generations yet unborn.

Godly Relationships 66: Live TriumphantlyAre you living the triumphant life that God has promised? Or are you, instead, a spiritual shrinking violet? As you ponder that question, consider this: God does not intend that you live a life that is commonplace or mediocre. And He doesn't want you to hide your light "under a basket." He wants you to "Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven" (Matthew 5:16 NKJV). In short, God wants you to live triumphant life so that others might know precisely what it means to be a believer.Godly Relationships 66: Live Triumphantly1 year ago in Editorial More Like This
The Christian life should be a triumphal celebration, a daily exercise in thanksgiving and praise. Join that celebration today. And while you're at it, make sure that you let everybody know that you've joined.

Looking down the tip of an arrow was sobering. Not quite as sobering as a gun barrel, but still, y’know not something to be taken lightly. Jason smiled at Connor Hawke. Inwardly, he was honestly surprised by how good it was to see him again, weapons and all.
“Connor! How’ve you been? I hear the family reunion didn’t go so well.” Anyone else would have given him a rude gesture or a ‘fuck you’, but no, not Connor. Subtle allusions to his dad and brother losing their fucking minds only warranted an eye roll.

Tim were younger. He tried hard not grin at their childish antics.
Younger Jason had been holding a huge brief case that at that time belonged to Bruce Wayne - before he was put into an old farts home that is and chatting with the smaller boy as if they were a married couple. Jason was about six years old while Timmy was about three.
Not that he would ever admit it to anyone especially Dick , he kinda missed those days. Timmy would hug him, kiss his cheek, and pretend to get a divorce then make up later that day. They both had little rings they would put on every morning when they woke up in the same bed and Tim greeted with either Jayjay or Jaybird. Now that Tim and Jason were older, they didn't see one another that much anymore after Stephanie had died it had been pretty hard for Timmy-; they kinda just hung around with the rest of t

Truthfully, things had been fine for the most part. That is, at first.
A closed Gotham City Academy, under construction after a certain giant-robot-versus-superhero incident, gets Dick out of school for the week.
Which in turn means more training and missions with Batman.
Thus causing Dick to be thrilled (in a way that only those who truly know the depths of his and Batman's relationship understand).
The Big, Bad Batman might seem as cold as ice and as emotionless as stone to most everyone else, only showing care to those closest to him in the League (and even then...), but Dick knows better. He's been lucky enough to come to know the man beneath the cowl and beyond the virtually-indestructible walls he's erected.
He's been Bruce's foster son for a little over three years now, and in that time he's grown closer to the man than anyone besides Alfred and most of the Original Seven. And it is for this reas

First, let's start from this theory's origin. The theory, by the way, is called the "Many-worlds Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics". It's a mouthful, but it is one of the simpler methods to solving what is called the "measurement problem". The measurement problem is a problem that arises when discussing wave particle duality, and superposition.
To explain, let's do the famous Schrodinger's Cat experiment. We have a cat in a magical box that does not allow you to make any measurements of the cat whatsoever (this won't work if you try it at home, and I'll explain why later). The cat is not alone in this box however, and is accompanied by a bottle of poison, sitting under a hammer, which is co

The last thing Lucy hears before the haze is a gunshot. If she hadn't been so surprised, she would have noticed the foosteps, too, that clatter and fall clumsily away, out of the office and down the hallway. Both her and Alfendi stay a moment in silence, just standing there, eyes trained on the doorway - he still has one hand nestled casually in his pocket, and the other is on his chin. As ever, he looks smugly passive, and he turns his head to face his assistant, the arm dropping to hang limply by his side.
"Well. That was quite the case, was it not?"

Return of the Serpent QueenA heavy black suitcase slammed the young lady's bed with a thud!. At the still-young age of twenty, Kuro had just returned from her trip to Egypt. No matter how much her family had tried to talk her out of it, the trip was a joint effort between her and her friend Sarah, and nothing could have changed her mind. Besides, even though half of her souvenirs had to be mailed specially (customs certainly wouldn't allow such fine things through!), seeing the Sphinx, the Great Pyramids at Giza, and a real open-air market had made the trip well worth the money.Return of the Serpent Queen5 years ago in Fantasy More Like This
Despite the pleasure, however, only two words that could summarize Kuro's mental state at the moment: Jet lagged. She ruffled her dark blond hair a little; the sun in Egypt had made it a few shades lighter, but it still wasn't quite the Valley Girl bleach blond.

The brown haired boy was rather young, having moved out from his parent's place and rented his first apartment after graduating college. However, he found the place was quiet. The apartment was lacking in life. He had no intention of moving back in with his parents, but living alone was just depressing. That was why he now found himself standing in a pet shop. It was an obvious solution, something to keep him company and just something he could talk to. However, he still wasn't sure on what kind of pet. The apartment was too small for a dog. Instead he had thought about a cat, but those were expensive. Before he had time to think on if he wanted to spend that much, the shopkeeper had chatted up a storm, and shown him around half a dozen different pets.Bunny's First Day of School4 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
