Her boots slipped on, hair burned brightly in the growing sunlight, a cool breeze wafted from the balcony.
It was beautiful, this hotel in which they'd decided to create one last memory. Of course, the black haired beauty lying buried in those sweat soaked sheets didn't know it.
It was better this way, she kept telling herself. If anyone could understand leading a new life, it would be him.
'I ask you not to search for me. And let me rephrase this for you, my love, Do Not Search For Me (for I know how stubborn you can be).'
Yes, she knew him better than anyone. Better than he knew himself. Which is why she understood why his birdarang was now plunged deeply with the note onto the wall beside her.
"Not quite the way I expected you to wake up; then again, you are the Boy Wonder."

Five and One - Okay, make it Six
SUMMARY: (AU) Five times a Cat got the better of a Bat and the one time... well, maybe we should just make it six.
AUTHOR'S NOTES: This little nibble struck me the other day after I was going through my favorites over on DA trying to get some inspiration for a few YJ pieces I'm working on. Then I saw this image by Callousvixen:
It's a shame they never got to introduce Catwoman to the Young Justice Verse. There are so many versions of Catwoman that do the character justice, but I think I'm most fond of the Animated version from the 90s. She was just the perfect counterpoint for Batman. However, I adored Anne Hathaway's costume from The Dark Knight Rises so that's what I've based the look on. Google it if you'd like a reference.
This story is pure ridiculous. I started writing it and it just kept getting worse and worse. And I love every wo

"Well, Bruce kinda forced me to come down here to check on things." said Joseph Kane as he finished the bandage. He turned to the child, "Now I want you to rest this wrist for a few days. Nothing intensive, do you understand?"
"Yes, Doctor Kane," said the kid as he ran off to meet up with his mom in the lobby.
Joseph turned to Leslie, "Bruce sent me to talk to you about the medication issues."
Leslie nodded, "In my office." They went into her office and Leslie invited Joseph to sit. Both knew their mutual benefactor's secret life, and both knew what was going on is important.

I Love You
I know it's wrong
But I cannot help it
The more I think of it
The more I realize that I'm wrong
The more I love you
And that makes me weak
When I fight you
Not your might
But my love for you
I have lost my reason
I have lost my pride
I have lost myself to you
Because I love you
Tears in my eyes
As I weep silently
At the grave of my broken heart
Yes, I have brought it unto myself
But I cannot stop saying
I love you
Batman: Feelgood Medicine Chapter 1The man ran through the alleyways of Gotham, panting and sweating. His eyes were wild with fear. His clothes were ripped to shreds. He didn't know what went wrong. A few hours ago, he had been fulfilling his dream of being a playboy.

A soft voice whispered on the wind, "Mr. Kowalski...I've come for payment...."
Kowalski turned, whimpering. He couldn't see anyone. But he knew the voice; the voice of the man who gave him the pills, promising that they and positive thinking would give him his deepest desires. What
Hetalia Phantom of the Opera C-1 The year was 1870. A practice performance of Hannibal was taking place in Opera Populaire, on a beautifully decorated, yet gaudy as hell stage. The powerful voice of the lead soprano rang throughout the whole theatre; the voice was even loud enough to deafen those who weren't used to the sound. 'It would basically hit them in a manner similar to that of having a heavy rock thrown at you,' you thought to yourself. You were a dancer in the background, along with many others, including your friend Lili*. It was your job as a dancer to basically jump around, spin, twirl and etcetera in a elegant fashion as part of, more or less, an accent to the performance as the soprano soaked up all attention from the crowd. Ever since you were brought here by your friend's mother after your father died, no, before that. Ever since you sang for the first time, you have fanticised and dreamt about what it wHetalia Phantom of the Opera C-13 years ago in Romance More Like This

The Genie's VacationIt had been nearly seven hundred years since her last vacation. Jeannie smiled as she packed her suitcase and left her bottle. The Universal Genie's Union had finally bargained for a mandatory two week vacation for any genie who had been around for 500 years or more. Jeannie was thrilled to finally be able to upgrade her clothing a bit as the whole harem outfit had gotten old. Jeannie decided she would spend at least a few days visiting earth as that planet had always given her great stories to relive while in captivity. See, Jeannie wasn't an evil genie, but she always enjoyed twisting people's wishes based on the type of person they were. The few times she had gotten a kind hearted master, Jeannie went out of her way to ensure the wishes were carried out to the wishers intent. However, the mean, cold hearted masters would generally find themselves in a less than desirable position.The Genie's Vacation2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

A galaxy so vast,
Traveling to the future,
Though I'm from the past.
To visit A Bajoran temple,

Or crew for the Defiant,

Or fight alongside Klingons,
In an honour-induced rage.
To seek out the Ba'neth,
A foe we cannot see,
Or meditate with Vulcans,

But find an old ground-car.

Second, anger: she caught sight at the arrow shaft coming out of Epona’s knee, and was immediately enraged at who would dare cripple a horse like that. Third: shame, for she had allowed herself to lead Epona into a trap, that she had been too focused on her own thoughts to notice. Finally, despair, as rider and horse tumbled on to the cold, packed dirt of the road and Epona pinned Link’s right leg.
