He was pretty sure there was more going on in that woman's mind that she really doesn't want anyone to know, including him. Especially him. He always thought he knew what was best for other people. Apparently so did Mari. She seemed content to dump him, mentioning something about seeing it through like a book.Small Talk3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
It had been enough of a roller coaster ride just dealing with the Thanagarian Invasion, her return, meeting their future son, and wrapping his mind around them being reincarnated from a time long forgotten. He was actually feeling a little bit of peace at the moment and too much introspection just might make him go a little unbalanced again. He didn't want that to happen again. That's what caused him to have problems with her and Mari in the first place.

Shayera stood next to him and sighed in exasperation. "Bruce please, just out of the kindness of your heart."
He turned towards her. "I'll say it again. Give me one good reason."
"Just don't tell anyone yet. John and I tried to get married but we were denied because I'm not a citizen from anywhere on Earth." She quickly explained as he looked at her rather skeptically. "Now will you please help me?"
"The two of you are getting eloped?" He dryly asked. Shayera could tell this was not boding well with him.
"Even though it makes our impending marriage sound horrible, yes we are." Well keeping secrets wasn't that great of an idea after all the things that happened to the League in the past few years. Especially involving her betrayal.
She thought before that maybe they should have told the other founding members that th

Dick: *narrating* So, let me try to think of the upside. No one thinks I'm Nightwing anymore thanks to what Bruce did, I'm out of SPYRAL now that we shut it down, and I'm alive. Bad news is now I'm unemployed, and Bruce's little trick won't exactly fool everyone, plus they'll still think I'm hiding something. I'm broke, SPYRAL froze the accounts I was using; and I'm not crawling back to Gotham for a handout.

Question wasn't always fond of all the things she said. Most of all the nicknames she gave to him. He knew it was all in goodwill but sometimes she would ask some of the worst questions. And also...
You must be the ugliest guy in the world, Question; hiding your face like that.
It was one of the first things she had ever said to him, and it still hurt. He knew she was right though and after his beat down by Lex Luther, and she took his mask off, he said so.
You were right. I am the ugliest guy in the world. He said through broken teeth and a swollen lip.
She touched his face then and smiled. Not in my eyes.
That was the best thing he'd ever heard her say.

"Was it an accident?" Bruce asked the Thanagarian sitting across from him.
"Of course it was," Shayera insisted. The past week had done its toll on her psyche. She just had to get her thoughts out before she went crazy. Bruce had offered before to listen to her and she now took the opportunity. "I didn't mean for it to happen. If I had been paying attention I could have saved that boy."
"Or you could have been killed instead. Everything happens for a reason." He stated. "But that's not what's bothering you."
She sighed, "It's just...why should I have a child when I killed one? Why would John want me to be the mother of his children? He can have any Earth woman yet he still chooses me. He can do better than me and he knows it."

Shayera was clutching John's arm as they walked down the street. When they first went out, it was earlier in the morning and not many people were out and about. Now plenty of people were and she was getting those stares again. It was times like these when she hated going out in public.
"Just ignore them Shayera," He repeatedly told her. Even once he said, "You have just as much of a right to walk around in public as they do."
The coffee shop was no better; it was always like this. They managed to get seats in the far corner of the place, their usually seats. That made her feel slightly more at ease.
"They're staring at us," Shayera stated, once they were both seated. John gave her that look he always did when they were out in public. Just ignore them. She rolled her eyes and sighed. He just didn't understand how hard it was to ignore them.

"Hey Rob? Which sounds better: Wally Grayson or Richard West?" Wally inquired out of the blue, looking up suddenly from the slightly crumpled paper he was scribbling on. He was sitting cross-legged on the floor of the Mount Justice living room, leaning against the couch. His chemistry notes were sprawled across the carpet as he wrote his lab report (which he had procrastinated on the last few weeks, and was now due the next day). Dick occupied the entire couch itself, one foot dangling down lazily and his hands propped behind his head. His eyes were closed behind the ever-present sungla

Joker looked up from a newspaper he had spread over the lap of his dirty purple suit and looked at the closed bathroom door where, behind the rotted wood, Harley was showering and singing an annoying pop song about love at the top of her lungs.

She types..... backspaces
Words don't come like they used to
Litterature is a language she once spoke fluently.
And now she has forgotten,
Forgotten the freedom and the beauty
In which she used to find at the tip of a pencil.
Forgotten the pride she acheived after each poem.
Words were like open doors, letting the pain free.
Now it's only bottled up, tangled in a huge knot.
It's not like she hasn't tried opening the bottle.
She has, many times in fact.
Failing to write a single word.
She starts with a blank page and gives up with a blank page.
Soon enough it will flow out like a waterfall
And it will hit her hard and fast. Throwing her to the ground
Her paper will be drowning with words.
Not the beautiful ones that could sing someone to sleep
No. Words like screams that could wake the dead.

Too much had changed over the years, between their relationships and the way everyone was learning new techniques that they wanted to try out in battle instead of using the regular maneuvers. That was okay and actually kind of cool, but not when you did it for the first time out in the field instead of practicing it in sparring sessions back at the base. So in the end, not cool.Wally and Artemis :: For You3 years ago in Drama More Like This

A frothy light spills into the bedroom from outside the closed shades. It's dimmed by the falling rain, trilling a steady heartbeat, tapping the dirty window. 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.
It's at that exact moment when the phone rings. The stereotypical, high-pitched noise cuts through the calm and snatches their sleep right away from them.

Darkness had settled hours ago and the house was finally quiet. Though weary from a long day, Diana knew that sleep would be a difficult prize to claim, especially with everything in her mind that vied for her attention. She lay on her back, right in the middle of her spacious bed as she stared at the ceiling with troubled blue eyes. With one hand laying on her belly and the other arm curled around her head, she did her best to relax her body, hoping that her mind would soon follow. Her long black hair was pulled to one side and was flailed out on her pillow and bed. Her spacious bedroom was dimly lit in the warm blue glow offered by the full moon. There were not many furnishings, only the bed, desk across the room under the window and a wardrobe that was made of some dark wood. Two other pieces had joined the

Im waiting in this room
And its cold.
You think you know
Who to expect when you come
But who you want to be here
So you are left.
I remain silent around you
If I could speak
I dont know what to say to you.
If I spoke,
I might slip
And you would know
Why my voice refuses
I hear you running

I left you my knife in the labyrinth
If you use it on me
I wont fight back
Let me look at you
I want to see you
If I could touch your bare skin
I would trace the invisible veins
On your face
I would follow them
And lifting this heavy mask
I would submit to
