"LET'S GO! LET'S GO! LET'S GO!" Dick hollered with urgency, catching Wally passing him in the corner of his eye and Roy as he came up on his left. They were jetting off with all their agility power up the tall staircase, nearly tripping as they hopped onto the second floor and continued their life dependent streak. Paintings and doors blurred past them on the walls as the wood and carpet did under their feet, the halls seemed to get longer and longer as they tried to break through them.
"LOOK OUT WALLY HE'S RIGHT TH-"
"Shut UP Harper! Keep going Wally! We're almost-"
"Open the door OPEN THE DOOR!" Wally squealed as he nearly toppled past said door. He tugged at it frantically. "IT'S LOCKED!"
"You have to PUSH it!" Dick ordered, falling in quickly after Wally and Roy and all but slamming the door behind him. He pressed his back against the wood as his chest heaved for oxygen, staring
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 Beliefs2 years 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.
Godly Relationships 24: Building RelationshipsDo you want to build a relationship that lasts? Then you must start by making God the cornerstone of your relationship.Godly Relationships 24: Building Relationships2 years ago in Philosophical More Like This
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.

Y.J: The Talk Chap.2"Okay Barry you can do this. You've faced a lot worse in your life; you can do this." Barry was standing in front of Wally's door, trying to gather all his inner strength, so that he could confront the red-haired speedster. It wasn't like he was scared of Wally, but trying to tell a teenage boy to stop seeing the boy that made him happy was something that he wasn't skilled at.Y.J: The Talk Chap.24 years ago in Romance More Like This
"Well here goes nothing." said Barry as he knocked on the door.
"It's open!" yelled the red head from the other side of the door.
As the blond-haired man opened the door; he was met with the sight of an extremely messy room. Jumbo bags of chips were scattered all over the room as Wally sat on the only neat thing his bed, casually typing on his laptop. "Wally could you please close that thing; we have to talk."
"Oh no," Wally said as he pushed his laptop to the side, no closing it.
"Why the 'Oh no'?"
"Uncle Barry, I've had my fair share of bad talks and all of them have two things in common. They all started with,

Jason recognized that his name was called but blatantly ignored it, involved in repairing his motorcycle.
He gripped the wrench in his hand stronger and jerked a bolt extra tight to let out his annoyance, mumbling, "Tim..."
"JAYJAY?! YOUR ASSISTANCE IS BEING REQUESTED!"
He looked up from his spot kneeling in front of one of the tires. He huffed as he threw his wrench aside into a toolbox and wiped the grease off with a handkerchief, "What do you want, baby bird?"
"DAMIAN'S SMOTHERING COLIN WITH HIS PELICAN!"
He wiped the back of his still oily hand on his forehead, "Again?"
"HURRY PLEA--- AAAGH DAMIAN, MY LEG IS NOT FOR TEETHING!"
Rubbing his temple with his fingers, he walked at his leisurely own pace down the hall, despite Tim's desperate cries echoing down the halls. He finally located where the shouting was coming from and creaked the door open with one hand to peek in.
All three of the young boys were engaged in a frenzied dog pile. Tim was on the bottom, looki
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 Triumphantly2 years 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.
What's HardRobin sat at one of the many wooden tables in the public library, reading a book detaliling all the latest computer technology. The entire team was there, mostly because of Megan. She had said she'd wanted to go an Earth library for the longest time. Superboy had never been to one and Kald'r could always use more books so there was really no debate about it. So there they were. Megan and Superboy were browsing the nonfiction while Kald'r was in the non-fiction. And KF was...moving around from shelf to shelf, never staying in one place for too long.What's Hard4 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
Short attention span and all that.
Any other day Robin would have smiled at the redhead's erratic behavior but not today. He was not in a good mood. Pissed off was an understatement. And it was all KF's fault. The speedster circled around a few more times before slipping into the seat next to the young hero.
"Hey Rob what's-"

It's the quiet ones you have to watch out for:
the ones who sit in class, doodling in their notebooks.
Alone they're harmless and keep to themselves.
But don't be fooled, their brains are a flurry of activity.
Put two or more of them together, and you'll wonder what the heck happened.
These "quiet ones" start talking, start plotting.
They've planned each other's brutal deaths....multiple times.
They've discussed the zombie apocalypse....and how they'd start it.
The end of the world has four backup plans....to ensure its demise.
And you can almost guarantee your death has been penciled in for next Tuesday.
So be careful, 'cause it's the quiet ones you have to watch out for.
The Real MultiverseIf you watch Fringe, then you've heard about parallel universes, and the structure they create: the multiverse. However, does such a thing really exist? Well, if you ask a physicist, half will probably say yes!The Real Multiverse5 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
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

Batman was snarling at the team, but most specifically, at Robin. The mission had been long and hard, with three days and two nights invested in what ultimately turned out to be a failure. The goal was surprisingly simple: get in, get the sample, get out. Unfortunately, it hadn't gone so smoothly. An alarm had been tripped at the warehouse they had been investigating, somehow slipping by Robin's electronic precautions. Armed gunmen had immediately arrived, shooting and blowing things up until there wasn't much left.
The team, bloody and bruised and battered, had managed to escape with their lives, but hadn't managed to get a sample of the chemical they were supposed to be investigating. Their mentors, frantic and worried, had beamed the team up to the Watchtower, where they recieved immediate medical care.
Batman was furious, but worst of all, he blamed Robin.

Starfire held a picture in her hand of her, Raven, Robin, Beast Boy, and a random teenage boy. Apparently, Cyborg believed that it would be funny to catch a shot of a jealous Robin telling the boy to back off.
Starfire giggled as she reminisced the day.
"Hey you're um Starfire, right?" a boy with brown hair and eyes asked.
"Yes, hello," she greeted.
"Oh, that's so cool! Starfire, I'm such a big fan of yours! You're an amazing fighter, not to mention, hot!" he complimented.
"I do not believe my temperature has increased," she answered as she checked her forehead.
"Good one," he chuckled, "I mean hot as in attractive."
"Oh," Starfire slightly turned red.
"Listen, I was wondering if you want to go out sometime," he said with tinted cheeks.
"She's taken," another teenager with spiky black hair and masked eyes answered.

I sighed inwardly as I let the thought slip away, being in a sullen enough mood as it is. I slid off my headphones and let them settle around my neck, turning the music down to a fluttery beat as I looked around my room, here at Wayne Manor, where I would be residing for Christmas unless an emergency came up. The Titans insisted--Kori even insisted, and they actually succeeded in sending me away. Maybe I secretly wanted to be.
I don't know what it was about this room that kept me so sedated. At the moment I'm thinking it's the window seat I've been inhabiting most of the day, with its plush cushions and the thick blanket I found on it this morning. This used to be my room when I lived here, too, so perhaps that brought some

Starfire unfolded the blue blanket and spread it underneath a healthy tree. Its branches were filled up with so many foliage, that it was able to create the perfect shade from the sun's harsh rays. The sun wasn't hot, but it was bright and warmthe perfect weather.
She placed the basket on the right corner, near her head, and lied on the blanket. Her two arms laid folded over the other, behind her head. The alien princess closed her eyes as she enjoyed the day. Without intentions, she had drifted into a nap.
It was hot. The weather had suddenly transformed into a suffocating, humid atmosphere. There were cries and shouts all mangled together, creating unintelligible, slurred words.
Starfire squinted, but no matter how much she tried, she was always greeted by a hazy mirage of purples, reds, and oranges.
The screams continued as well as the overwhelming heat.
Soon the slurred cries became understandable to her ears. They were mixtures of both m

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."

I was in the motion of sitting up but something tugged at my wrists preventing me from doing so. I looked at my wrists and despite the darkness I could see gold cuffs with gold chains attached to them. The cuffs had engrave designs that ran all the way around the cuffs. The center of both cuffs had small diamonds. After every third diamond there was a snowflake made out of rubies and due to the fact the cuffs were touching my bare skin, a thin layer of frost enhanced the delicate details.
I looked down at my ankles and saw that the cuffs had the same craftsmanship as the ones on my wrists.
My eyes darted around the room, searching for any means of getting out this situation but I saw nothing...nothing but darkness.
How did I get here? I thought as my mind tried to retrace everything that happened tonight. If it was still night that is.

seizing my limbs as I'm facing the dark,
thoughts unwanted, unheard and unsaid,
discarding thy redemptive salvaging spark.
Shreds of light stroking my mind,
creating a glance into heavenly place,
my childish self, so naive and blind,
thou enlighten for me oh to embrace.
It's the infinite dance, the unending fight,
a game to be lost by the vines of time,
one leads to sorrow, the other to light,
thou are the only to toll the ransoming chime.
