TMNT-BreathlessIf one would look up from the busy streets to the top of the buildings above, one would see the dash of figures as they raced from roof top to roof top in an advanced game of tag.TMNT-Breathless in Romance More Like This
Since April O'Neil had been training with Splinter, the turtles had tried to find ways to build up her speed. It was then the turtles decided to fix that by playing a classic game of tag. Of course she wasn't nearly as fast as them, but with time, she was moving with grace and speed faster than she had before.
Some nights she and the mutant brothers would climb to the roofs and dash from building to building in a mix of tag and hide and go seek. See who could out run their opponent and hide themselves the best in the shadows the night gave off.
It was something Donatello looked forward to. It gave him the opportunity to take his brothers down and keep her for last. He enjoyed listening to the faint pitter patter of her shoes hitting concrete as she ran across the roofs, hearing her pant from exhaustion and th
TMNT-ScarsApril O'Neil traced the long scar along the back of Donatello's arm. It wasn't very noticeable...but it was there. It was funny how April could look over his body like that and find another scar she hadn't noticed before. She'd trace it with her finger and silently wonder how he got it. And as though he read her mind, he would always tell her.TMNT-Scars in Romance More Like This

'I got that one when I was working on the first prototype of the T-Phones. I had crossed the wires and got a good shock. Ended up falling over and hitting my head on the tip of my table. Splinter was so scared...'
Every scar she found, it was like she discovered something new about him. About his past. She never would have guessed he had his first chemistry set at the age of six or that he had even tried to visit the surfac
TMNT-Red LipstickApril had never really been into make up. And even if she wore some, it was always subtle. But there was one thing of lipstick she had that she kept for special occasions.TMNT-Red Lipstick in Romance More Like This
"It's my rebellious look," she'd joke. "When I want to be wild. Something I'm not." Despite that though, Donatello loved to see her in it. It was a shock to see the bright red lipstick on her pale face, but it suited her. In a weird way, that is. It made her hair seem redder, her eyes bluer, her lips fuller...
When she realized how much he loved it, April tried to wear it around him now and then. It was a thrill to come home and see the red on her face. Feel her lips on his skin, leaving kiss-y marks and trails behind...
Donatello enjoyed finding the marks left behind on his face, head, and skin. It was like a little piece of April with him when he worked, when he was out and about...it became his favorite thing: coming home to see if she had the red surprise on her lips and welcome the fire-y kisses they gave.

"Mom, can we leave now?"
"Just a minute, sweetie."
April O'Neil stared at the one spot in the grassy field beneath the drooping arms of a willow tree. To anyone but her, it was just a spot in the grass. Nothing out of the ordinary at all. Just a stupid spot under the stupid shade of a stupid tree in the middle of a stupid field on the outskirts of stupid New York City.
The red head had been sitting in front of the spot for probably an hour or so. Maybe longer. She tended to lose track of time when she visited this place. Not that she minded, but whenever she brought a visitor they didn't seem to understand why she needed her time there.
Whenever someone asked her why she came to that spot, she always replied with: 'to visit a friend.' Not that they would understand. Not that anyone would ever understand. She could tell people why she was there and who she was visiting, but no o
TMNT-3:28 A.MApril O’Neil didn’t have to open her eyes to know that it was 3:28 A.M. This had been going on for over a month or two now where she’d wake up from the same stupid dream at exactly 3:28 every night.TMNT-3:28 A.M in Romance More Like This
She’d usually wake up with the sheets tangled with her limbs, a pillow would be on the floor and she’d be sweating, even though it was beginning to become winter and the air was rather chilly.
It was the same dream every time. She’d see Donatello’s face in her mind and think about every moment he had looked at her with those intense red brown eyes and grinned at her with the gap in his teeth that made him that much more adorable. She’d dream about him saving her, all the times he was there for her when she needed not just him but SOMEONE to be there, and how he never let harm come her way.
April turned over on her side, snuggling her cheek into the pillow. She was a tough chick. A New Yorker. She lived and breathed the tough life style where s
TMNT-TarotApril O'Neil had felt silly thinking about what she was doing. Felt silly walking down the street towards the building. Felt silly for even considering believing superstition. Yet, there she was standing outside of the psychic shop down the block from where her aunt lived.TMNT-Tarot in General Fiction More Like This
The red head glanced at the neon sign in the window of a hand and an eye in the center. The doorway leading into the shop was covered with beads and drapes. April wanted to turn away and pretend she had never been there. But she had to know the answers to the questions she herself and others couldn't answer.
April took a deep breath and walked through the drapes and beads. The room was dark and musky. Smoke filled the air and the strong, musky smell of jasmine incense filled her nose. She was torn between wanting to cough and gag.
"Come in! Come in, sweetie!" A sweet voice called from a table in the corner. April made her way to the voice and a figure appeared behind the smoke. It was a woman. She was tall and lean,
TMNT-SickTo Donatello, there was nothing worse than a cold. Nope. Nada. Zippo. It meant he couldn’t go on patrol. Meant even working on an invention would send him into a massive migraine. Meant training would make him run to the bathroom needing to puke.TMNT-Sick in General Fiction More Like This
So all in all, he couldn’t do anything he loved. Splinter forced the mutant to either lay in his room or on the couch pretty much doing nothing until he got better. And when Donatello got sick, he was sick for a while. And he’d always have all the symptoms. Fever, chills, nausea, name it and he probably had it.
Laying on the couch, Donnie stared up at the ceiling of the lair bundled in blankets. His brothers were on patrol and Splinter was probably meditating in his room., which meant the mutant was all alone. Completely and utterly alone. And he hated it. Even trying to force himself to sit up hurt too much. So he just laid there pitifully.

"Come on, Donnie. This is embarrassing."
"This isn't fair."
"You have no right to declare what is and isn't fair."
April O'Neil struggled in Donatello's grasp, but she knew it was no use. The mutant had her over his shoulder and pinned her legs to his plastron so she couldn't make a run for it. The teenager sighed and rested her elbow on his shell and cheek against her hand.
"Donnie, let me go. I can walk."
"Nope. You had your chance."
"Donnie, I'm not a little kid. You don't have to babysit me."
The mutant ninja stopped in his tracks. April immediately regretted uttering her last sentence. She could feel the anger rising from him without having to see his face. And April had never seen Donatello mad. Well, at least not at her.
Donatello roughly grabbed April and held her in front of him, her feet lightly dangling above the cement of a building's roof. All of his features were twisted into a deep frown, his eyes ablaze with anger. E
TMNT-IcarusDonatello was so wrapped up in trying to break away from what he was...no...is, he forgot to step back and really think. Think about his decision. Think about the consequences, not just the benefits. The benefits that honestly were probably chances with luck and fate.TMNT-Icarus in Drama More Like This
But that was the thing about Donatello. When he was so wrapped up in something, he more often than not ended up hurt in some way. He may be intelligent and a man of science, but science doesn't always mean it gets along with fate or destiny. It was as though the mutant laughed in the face of fate. Like he could control it. Like he had forever to live and laugh at life because he was so intelligent he could easily outsmart the simplest of atoms.
And love did that to you, too. Make you forget how to be yourself. How to properly think. How to wake up and smell the probability and science in the morning, not just chance.
Perhaps it was the need to get out of the lair and be more than just a thing hiding in the sewers that dro

Above the ocean, one of the numerous dark spheres was floating near the sky. Soon enough, a giant cannon appeared from the dark sphere. This cannon was so huge, any regular human would look like a bug besides it. It was kind of like an ultimate weapon that you could find in a science-fiction story, like Star Wars, Star Trek and any others. The cannon shooted towards the horizon. It hitted something as another dark sphere was made, sucking everything around. On top of the cannon, four familiar villains were standing: Elmer Fudd, Jafar, the Green Goblin and Mr. Swackhammer.

"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."

"How am I going...will they use this against me?"
"Most likely yes." He quietly answered as he sat across from her. "I suggest you tell John now so that he knows. Most likely he'll have to testify on your behalf to confirm what you say."
"I will tell him, when I'm ready. I have to let this sink in too you know?" She bit her lip as she was in deep thought.
She was happy, truly she was very happy. Yet the timing couldn't be any worse. She desired to have a child but right now just wasn't the desired time.
She swallowed. "What kind of mother can I possibly be? I shouldn't be allowed to have a goldfish let alone a child."
"You wanted a child didn't you?" He asked her.

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.

The sudden shift of her rolling over woke John up. He laid quietly in bed, listening to the sound of breathing coming from the body snuggled up against his own. It wasn't every day that he was awake before her. Normally she was up and enjoying the view of the sunrise. He looked over at the digital clock. It was quarter to seven and she had missed another sunrise.
She shifted a bit and pressed her body further against his. John wished that she would just talk to him but reminded himself that he was dealing with Shayera. Really, he wanted to know what happened during the hearing a week before. He tightened his arms around her.
"John," She whispered groggily as her eyes fluttered open.
"Go back to sleep Shay." He smiled as she actually listened. He was ready to fall back asleep himself when his commlink went off in his ear and he saw Shayera immediately frown.

"The two of you are getting eloped?" He dryly asked. Shayera could tell this was not boding well with him.

This was her favorite time of day, when everything seemed so quiet and still. The only noise she could hear was John moving around in the kitchen. She mustered the energy to roll out of bed to investigate.
Shayera stretched her back and arms as she spoke. "I was hoping that you were going to wake me up when you got up. I can't believe I overslept again and missed another sunrise."
"You looked so tranquil and comfortable. I figured I would let you sleep in." He replied, turning to face her as he continued stirring the eggs on the stove.

Shayera looked dumbfounded. The very man that voted her expulsion from the Justice League was claiming that he trusted her. "How do you know you can trust me?"
"I only voted you out for morality sake. If I was in your shoes, I would have done the same. You weren't a trained liar, you were a trained soldier.

Apparently so did Mari. She seemed content to dump him, mentioning something about seeing it through like a book.Small Talk 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.

Hans cautiously moved into the room, all

It was empty. He glanced behind the throne

wonder if Alucard was asleep at the moment and
also wondered if it was safe should he accidentally

The night after the Millennium attack
was the night the nightmares happened.
Seras was expecting some form of nightmare
after the war. But what she saw caught her
by surprise. She didnt see the ruins of
London but an old farm house. She saw a
silver haired boy running through planes
of grass. He was smiling and laughing.
Something about him seemed familiar. She
thought of the Captain but his eyes were
gold and not the deep blue of this young
boy. He was playing with two other siblings.
A brother and a sister. The boy stopped dead
in his tracks at the edge of a forest facing
Seras. The boy was quivering in fear. Seras
realized the boy was looking through her when
she heard a low growl build behind her. She
whipped around to come face-to-muzzle with a
large grey wolf. The wolf bound forward through
Seras and landed on the boy. The wolf leaned
forward and bit into the boy's shoulder. As
the boy screamed in pain a gunshot rang out.
The boy's father stood with a smoking shotgun.

Hans and Seras spent about a month to
plan out strategies as well as emergency
meeting points and scouting. Hans had
timed it perfectly. He would attack in
the afternoon the day of the full moon.
It would be the day he was strongest and
keep him away from Seras. Hans had said
goodbye and rented a lardge truck. He
drove into one of the effected villages.
No one was out, big surprise. His nose was
clogged with the smell of vampire. It wasnt
the smell of a true vampire, like Alucard's

up a massive dose of rage in the Captain.
Hans stopped the truck and walked to the

He was sitting in his usual seat striking random conversation with the doctor who was in his usual blood-stained coat and gloves. The Captain walked up with Seras and clicked his heels together and stood straighter if that was possible.

"We finally found a connection between the murder victims of that surgeon guy. I've been doing some snooping around with the guys from forensics, and it looks like everyone who've been bumped off and cut up used to work for Daggett in some way."
Even though the two of them had contacted Batman to help them on the case of the killer surgeon when the ordeal began, the Dark Knight's absence had forced Commissioner Gordon and Detective Bullock to continue doing their own investigation into the murders. That wasn't to say Batman had abandoned them, being that Azrael and Robin still kept in regular contact with Gordon, but it was very conspicuous that Batman would suddenly disappear in the middle of a case without telling Gordon that he was going to be leaving for a while.

As a owner of Wayne Enterprises, Bruce Wayne had grown rather accustomed to saying that word. On an almost daily basis, he would be presented with possible deals that would greatly affect the direction his company took, and many times he would refuse them seeing that it was a direction that Wayne Enterprises did not need to take. Many of those times, it was because the company that was making the offer was involved in one of the many, many organized crime rings that Gotham City housed. Having lost his parents to the rampant crime rate of the city, Bruce made sure to do plenty of research on those companies that made him offers, even those that had obvious benefits. He was rarely disappointed with what he found out.
And on this evening, Bruce Wayne was once again saying no to an offer, though this offer wasn't involving Wayne Enterprises. This offer involved something more directly involved with how Gotham City was run.

Though he knew that Lucius Fox was only saying what he felt was in Bruce's best interest, Bruce had heard those words said to him many, many times even though he hadn't been at the Wayne Enterprises tower for more than an hour. He underestimated how quickly word would spread of what was supposed to be kept secret until the press conference that would take place shortly, but it wasn't like the lack of secrecy was going to sway his decision. Within the next hour, Bruce Wayne would make a formal public announcement that he would declare candidacy for the position of Gotham City's mayor.

With the imposter's disappearance just a few days before the mayoral election, Bruce couldn't help but shake the feeling that something terrible was going to happen to Gotham City if he did not do something soon.
The police had already scavenged Daggett South Hospital where many of the victims were last seen alive, but their search for Crux had come up empty. Azrael and Robin were having similar shortcomings in their investigations, and while the fact that the forces of good had put a stop to the evils of Daggett South Hospital gave the people of Gotham a chance to breathe a sigh of relief, Bruce was as tense as ever.

Even though a replacement candidate was quickly found in Hamilton Hill, there was little doubt in the hearts of Gothamites who was going to be running their city once the lame duck period was over. Hamilton Hill did such a disastrous job as mayor during his first run that Tammany Crux would have actually been a vast improvement, even with the revelation that he was the serial killer that had been harvesting organs and faces from his victims.
Although Bruce was reluctant, his campaign managers convinced him to throw one more of his trademark parties at Wayne Manor for all of those who believed in him.

However, she could care less about most of the town. She was here to see one pony, and that was it. She wouldn't even be doing that, if not for...circumstances.
