"Something is wrong." Batman's gravely voice alerted the mentors of the team that he had entered the meeting room after they had returned from their mission.
"What is wrong Batman?" Martian Manhunter inquired.
"I can not reach the Cave or Robin. The Zeta tubes are down and Red Tornado is not responding." Batman reported and the present mentor's eyes widened suddenly on their feet completely alert.

Closure [Young Justice Animated - Dick, Bruce]Thanks to time zone differences, it was late Christmas Eve by the time Robin and the others returned to Mount Justice from their "mission" in Europe. With Wally insisting that the group stick around for a round of carols, eggnog, and exchanging Secret Santa gifts especially after he'd come all the way over, and convinced Kaldur and Zatanna to do the same Robin's return to Gotham was delayed for a further few hours. Fortunately, Dick had previously informed Alfred that he'd be spending Christmas Eve, and the days preceding it, with the Team at Mount Justice. There was some truth to it.

Even so, once the last bit of gift-wrap had been cleared, Robin decided it wasn't prudent to linger, and gathered up his Secret Santa gift with great care. It was a fancy Martian memory globe from M'gann: it portrayed whatever memory or image you thought of while rubbing it, and would continue to do so until you "changed" the memory. Too. Cool.

Artemis jolted from her sleep as Wally's voice whispered around her. Frantically, she looked around, a flash of red and yellow assaulted her eyes, but she dismissed it quickly. Her mind was playing tricks on her. Wally was dead. Had been for months. Get your shit together, Crock. He's never coming back.
Shivers ran over her skin as she blinked back the tears. Closing her eyes against the images of him in his stealth mode costume as he swung her up in his arms and kissed her for the first time. Sobbing quietly to herself, Artemis mumbled, “No kidding...” before she drifted back into a Wally filled sleep.

As the sun came up, Artemis dragged her lazy ass out of bed. She had to go meet the rest of the team. She still had a role to play, maybe not as Artemis anymore, but as Tigress. It was still an important role anyway. Nightwing would be pissed if she showed up late again.

As she stood in the middle of the room, amidst Wally and who he was as a person, as a hero, as a lover, as a friend, tears threatened her gray eyes. She could almost feel her boyfriend in the room, wrapping his arms around her body and rocking her against his chest. Unable to keep them away anymore, the traitorous tears rolled down her pale cheeks.
Dick was worried about her, but she cut him off. She wanted to enjoy this moment. To soak up Wally and his being. “I love you, too,” she whispered into the empty air as she closed her eyes against the onslaught of uncontrollable pain. Her body shook from the ferocity of the grief she was letting out. When she opened her eyes, she saw him again. Like she had this morning and both times this

“Sh!” Dick snapped, “This is the best part.” Dick sat up on the couch so his feet were planted on the floor, his elbows on his knees, and his hands holding his chin up.
Jason shook his head and smiled. He put the bowl on the table and climbed onto the couch. He sat with his legs up on the coffee table and one arm draped over Dick’s side of the couch. Jason looked at the T.V. screen at a movie he’d never seen before. Right now Matt Damon and Robin Williams were sitting in a park.
Jason looked over at Dick who seemed mesmerized by the movie.
Dick mouthed each line:
“If I asked you about women you’d probably give me a syllabus of your personal favorites. You may have even been laid a few times. But you can’t tell me what it feels like to wake up next to a woman and feel truly happy.”

The boy wonder was sitting in the couch, his head slowly nodding, his mind elsewhere. He didn't even hear the speedster, who was practically shouting into his ears.
"You can't hide that kid."
Once a Flying Grayson, always a Flying Grayson. That is, untill you fall.
Gasps, a few flashes of cameras, but he had heard nor seen any of that. Only the dull, but prominent crack, and the thud.
"Huh, oh, sorry KF. Didn't realize you were there," he let out a half-hearted laugh.
"Dude, is that sweat dripping off your face? Come on, you barely break a sweat "
"KF I do sweat "
"Naw, you have an endurance almost as good as mine. Almost, cause I'm perfect."
Wally spun in a little circle and grinned his freckled face down at the bird boy. After about 2 minutes (Or years in speedster time) Wally's hand was a blur, and in less than a second he had Robin's mask in his hand, and was inches from Rob's face. Normally, the boy wonder wo

It was supposed to be a simple recon mission.
Yeah; if only.
Superboy stood in front of the Boy Wonder as he finished downloading whatever files it was he needed into his wrist computer. "Can't you go any faster?" Superboy growled impatiently, resisting the urge to tap his foot like he'd sometimes seen Artemis do. If he were to be perfectly honest, just standing there and waiting with nothing to do but play guard was boring as all hell.
Robin just rolled his eyes and replied somewhat derisively, "Sorry, but I can't really rush technology. There's a lot to download." Superboy just groaned in response and continued to watch for any potential danger, finally giving into the urge to tap his foot a few times. "Almost..." Robin muttered, more to himself than Superboy, as he watched the digital copies of his face turn fr

I turn around and to look at my boyfriend Wally who's sitting on the edge of my bed looking like a sad puppy who just lost his favorite bone. I sigh heavily as I finish tying my navy blue tie. I hate seeing him like this, especially when it's all my fault he's feeling that way.
"I'm sorry, Wally. I'm really, really sorry," I say for the 10th time tonight. "But Bruce didn't invite you and he won't change his mind no matter what I say."
"Stingy old man."
"Hey, man." I walk over to him and poke him hard in the forehead. "Don't talk about him like that."
"Hmph. He pouts, half in joke, before taking both of my tiny hands in his large ones and pulling me closer to wrap his arms around my slim waist. "Well if I can't go, why can't you stay?"
When he talks to me in that soft, gentle tone, it makes me want to do anything and everything he asks of me, if if I really shouldn't.
"Because you know what Bruce'll do if I stay behind, especially if he finds out it was because of you."

Tonight was supposed to be covert mission overseeing information smuggling by an unknown terrorist group. They were sitting and waiting for the assailant to arrive to the government building they were hiding in. And as always nothing goes covert for the Young Justice team.
Robin wouldn't stop coughing, no matter how hard the young boy tried to hide or stifle it. Kid Flash looked over to find Robin's face in his hand, coughing almost violently.
"Are you okay?" Kid Flash asked, quietly. He moved over to Robin's location and knelt beside him.
"I-*cough*-I'm fine" Robin replied, taking a cough lozenge from one of his many pockets on his utility belt. Kid watched Robin slipped it into his mouth with a quick flick of his tongue.
"Er, you sure? You've been coughing all night" Kid Flash said, turning his eyes away from Robin's face with a blush. "Not to ruin your mood, but it k

I know something is wrong as soon as I hear a crash. It's the sound of something breaking and I fear it's more than just a piece of fine china.
"Wally, wait! Please!"
Not more than I second later, I see Master Wallace come storming into the main hallway from my perch on the stairs. I believe the proper word to describe his expression is "pissed off." And there's a hint of hurt as well. Young Master Richard is behind him, right on his heels, face apologetic and pleading.
As Young Master Wallace wrenches open the door, Master Richard grabs hold of his shirt, hands trembling, and I am already making my way down the stairs.
"Let go of me, Dick."
"No! Wally, please don't leave! I didn't mean it! I-"
"Enough." The red-headed boy pushes Master Richard's hands away and my suspicions are unfortunately confirmed correct. "I'm done. It's over."
The door slams and not a second later, he's on the floor, sobbing.

He's paying attention, but not to the words coming out of Robin's mouth. Instead, he watches how there's a funny line between Damian's eyebrows when he gets exasperated, or when he gets really excited or agitated, a faint accent starts to slip into his voice. Colin doesn't know where it's from, but it sounds exotic, the way his lips form the words just a hint differently, drawing out an e sound longer than necessary, or rolling an r, or

She sat down on the floor and curled up into a ball, leaning onto the mural. She stared at her shipping wall on the other far side of the room, her eyes drifting over to the picture of her and Karkitty. She slowly crawled over, licking her shaking pointer finger and erasing Karkat's side of the heart. Leaving it blank, she crawled back over to the mural.

That I used to know well.
Nepeta thought back to her ancestor, The Disciple, and Karkat's ancestor, The Sufferer. Beginning to sob, she curled herself into a ball again on the floor. She remembered the one time she tried to hug Karkat, the one day in which the humans called 'Valentines day.

I groan as I regain consciousness, the cold air stinging my burning skin. Everything hurts, aches, so badly that I can barely move. My ribs scream with agony when I try to sit up further, warm liquid that has to be blood streams down my limbs, and my breathing is hard and shallow. I can't see a thing either. Nothing but darkness so thick I can't see my own body. Cold metal chills the skin of my fingertips. Someone's taken my gloves. I don't feel the familiar weight of my utility belt around my waist anymore either. Of course they'd take that too.
Memories of the last few hours flood back to me. We were on a mission...got ambushed...there was an explosion and...that's all I remember.

The chest he'd previously been resting his cheek on sunk in frustration. "I just don't get it we've made out in my room, your room, rooftops, trees... Hey! No violence!"
Robin grumbled, sapphire eyes rolling behind the tinted lenses, "It's not my fault your reflexes suck."

Wally's nostrils flared as he exhaled heavily. "The point here-"
"Oh, so there is one?" Robin snorted. It was too easy to aggravate Wally, whose patience's ability to fizzle was just as quick as those feet of his. Could the younger kid be blamed? Not really, considering how cute that grumpy-face was.

It was all he could say as he laid on the floor of the bioship. It was pathetic, him bleeding on the floor, helplessly watching his team try to save him. He always hated the feeling, the one where he felt as if he could do nothing. He has been feeling it too much lately. Maybe it was the reason why he tried too hard to play the game that was his life.
Maybe he had just wanted to win.
Coughing, he tired to clear his throat of the blood that was bubbling out of his mouth. Then went another shot in the arm, another scream for medical supplies, another hand pressing down on his injuries. Blurry visions of green and blonde, mixed with black and blue flashed before him. Licking his dry, cracked lips, he closed his eyes.
He just wanted to win.
Taking a shaky breath, he whispered the words again. "I'll find someway to redeem myself to you." Really, it was an empty promise (all his promises were). Nevertheless, this was one he wanted to make

I'm on this stupid mathelete trip for a tournament and because of a room mix up, there aren't enough beds for everyone to have their own. So I'm sharing. And I'm not getting a wink of sleep. I don't even know who this guy is. Sure, we're on the same team but we don't talk. At all.
This warmth next to me isn't Wally's. It's not familiar, or comforting, or safe. This breathing isn't his. It's erratic and noisy and just plain annoying. And when he brushes against me because he's a wild sleeper, it's just not the same. Heavy and rough, not smooth and gentle. Instead of soft wisps of breath, my ears are greeted with thundering snores that tear at my eardrums.
I hate it.
I'm cold, too. The dude beside me is so huge and greedy that he's taken all of the covers for himself. With me in nothing but a thin T-shirt and shorts, it's freezing in here. At least when Wally does that he ends up turning around and hugging me

Even then Damian wasn't talking.
Now back to the main topic. Colin's jeans. Sometimes Damian didn't even know why his spite for his friends jeans was so strong. Maybe because they fit Colin so... perfectly. Just... all the right curves. It always made Damian's face heat up.
Unlike Damian, Colin didn't like and didn't wear skinny or straight leg jeans. He stuck with kapris and bootcut style pants.
Besides, Colin wouldn't have been able to afford most jeans and such. Not trying to be rude. The nuns at Colin's orphanage supplied hand-me-downs and skinny jeans weren't 'appropriate' or 'decent' attire.
Damian still couldn't figure out what it was about Colin. It couldn't only be his jeans. That would be ridiculous. Damian began thinking about all the ad
