“Can I open my eyes now?”
“Love you too.”
Donatello led April O’Neil through the cold autumn night, the icy air brushing against their skin. He had set up for this moment for over a month, and nothing was going to ruin it. Not his brothers, not Splinter, not the Purple Dragons, Foot Clan, and most importantly, not the Shredder. This night belonged to Donatello and Donatello alone.
He stopped leading the red head girl and April struggled to peek through Donatello’s hands. The mutant felt himself grin, proud at how smooth everything was going for him.
“Can I open my eyes NOW?”
Donatello dropped his hands and April gasped. He had found a place in the local dump to set down a blanket and picnic. He had rewired an old T.V and DVD player and searched for a good movie the two of them could watch. It wasn’t the most romantic s

Donatello darted from building to building, not letting the shadow below in the alleyways escape from his view. It was only ten minutes ago that Donatello had heard an alarm go off from a nearby building. A man had ran out with a bag of stolen goods and the mutant knew he couldn’t just let that go.
The ninja knew when he got home he’d probably get an ear full from his brothers and rat father, but he couldn’t just let this man get away with burglary. Not on his watch. Donatello flew from the top of the building he was on and landed gracefully in front of the burglar. The man gasped and turn to escape, but Donatello was faster.
In one swift move, the mutant swung his bo staff around and knocked the man clean off his feet. Upon hitting the ground, the mutant could tell the man had been knocked out cold. But to be sure, Donatello poked him with the tip of his staff.
“Serves ya right.” Donatello could hear sirens nearby and he turned to leave. He stopped, curio

You don't know how lovely you are.
It was a quarter past midnight and New York City had never been quieter. It was as though the city felt Donatello’s pain. Understood how he needed silence to concentrate. To get a hold of his emotions and mind. And he was grateful for that.
Dodging from shadow to shadow in the grassy part of the city, Donatello finally came to the spot he was looking for. He didn’t need a map to find this place or be told any directions. He knew it by heart. And the turtle knew it was engraved in it like a pathetic map he never wanted to throw away.
Donnie stood in front of the slab of stone in complete silence, not caring who could or could not see him. This was his moment, his place, and no one will ever take that away from him. Swallowing the lump in his throat, he finally found what he thought were the right words to say. “Hey, April. Nice night. isn’t it?”
TMNT-SilenceIt had been a long day for April and all she wanted more than anything in the world was for some peace and quiet. She supposed it had been a bad idea going down to visit her turtle friends, since none of them seem to understand the concept of what ‘peace and quiet’ was. Well, except for Splinter, but still.TMNT-Silence in Romance More Like This
But yet, there she was. Sitting in the turtles’ living room and listening to the never ending chatter of her most trusted friend, Donatello. He was going on about some new invention he was making and using an incredible discovery he had uncovered while digging around the local dump.
April’s head buzzed with the beginning of a headache. What was that about coding? To be honest, she had stopped listening to the turtle somewhere after ‘ectoplasmic egg beater.’ And even though she had been reduced to nodding and some “ugh huh”s now and then, he didn’t seem to lose the excitement or speed of his chatter. She felt bad, because normally

There was nothing special about the ribbon. It was a light shade of pink and looked as though it belonged in a ballerina’s hair. Not in April O’Neil’s closet. The teenager supposed it was from a moment in her childhood when she had tried taking dance at a younger age. She snorted at the memory, picturing her six year old self trying to fit in with the rest of the dancers, clad in a leotard and oversized tutu.
The red head flipped the ribbon over and over in her hands, trying to figure out what she could do with it. She could throw it away, but she thought it’d be a shame to. The ribbon was in perfect condition for its age. But she didn’t exactly want it sitting in her room for forever.
A tap on the window knocked her out of her thoughts and the female walked over to the glass. In peered two large, reddish brown eyes and a toothy smile. She rolled her eyes, a smile growing on her lips as she clicked open the window.

TMNT-HoroscopeDonatello was a science man. A fact man. If you talked to him about something, he had to know the facts. Where the statistics came from. Which meant that if you gave him some piece of magic or hocus-pocus crap, he’d just tell you “that’s nice” and go back to inventing.TMNT-Horoscope in Romance More Like This
When Donatello turned to the horoscope section of the newspaper that day, he couldn’t help but stop and glance at what could be his horoscope. Taking the day he and his brothers had mutated into mind, he knew it was just a waste of time to look up the small description of how his day could go. He and his brothers might share the same mutation day, but their birthdays could be a whole different day. And besides, horoscopes were just full of garbage to get people all psyched up for something that has a huge possibility of not even happening.
The mutant rolled his eyes. People got so carried away with the vague description set for each sign. It was written that way so anyone could take it into
TMNT-FrecklesTMNT-Freckles in General Fiction More Like This
April O’Neil had never liked her freckles. She had so many splattered on her face thanks to her pale complexion when she was younger and had been severely bullied by them. The red head shuddered as she remembered those days.
It was when she wore glasses and had braces. Her freckles were just the icing on top. She recalled how they called her ‘pizza face’ and joked about how ‘somewhere in Africa, a cheetah was missing its spots.’ The worse was when someone joked that God had sneezed all over her face when she was a baby. It mortified her for years.
After being so badly teased, the teen made it her goal to have little to no freckles at all. If she went outside, she lathered on sun block. She wore hats. She did everything to keep the sun from creating more damned spots on her face.
April’s Dad had told her that her freckles were what made her beautiful. That they were angel kisses. She loved those stories her dad told her but they just couldn’t dr
TMNT-ExhaleThey say that if you love someone, you should let them go. Like if you take in a sick bird and nurse it back to health. In the end, you release it. But deep down, you hope it comes back because during that time, you learned to love that bird. You cared about that bird. And even though you want that bird to be free and happy, you also want it there with you.TMNT-Exhale in Romance More Like This
That's how Donatello felt when it came to April O'Neil. She was his sick bird. The bird he helped nurture until the Kraang were defeated and they saved April's dad. After all those years and time together, she was healed and could be released back into the world.
Donatello didn't want her to leave. Didn't want to let her go. She was his. He was so in love with her, it hurt. He didn't know how to go back to 'normal,' whatever that was. He couldn't recall life before the beautiful red head came into it. His life revolved around her.
So when her dad came back into the picture, he knew it was time to say goodbye. She was a young woman,

As much as Donatello loved his brothers, they often got on his nerves. Between the constant bickering, play fighting, and fussing about what he was inventing next, Donnie had enough. Especially with the invasion of his privacy with April.
He supposed he didn’t blame them. With Donnie’s crush on the human female, his brothers constantly found some way to tease him. Even down to the messages he got from her on his T-Phone. They weren’t anything bad but his brothers didn’t exactly understand or value the word ‘privacy.’ If they noticed a message from the girl, no matter what context she meant what she said in, they’d find a way to harass him about it.
Donatello is what you would call ‘intelligent.’ He never had to go to school but could outsmart the most brilliant of humans. He knew if he weren’t a mutant ninja living below the city streets of New York, he held the possibility of winning a Nobel Peace Prize or some other prestigi
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
Justice Tunes 01Hello, everyone. This is a crossover I've been thinking of doing for a while and here's where I got the idea. You see, back in the 90's, DC Comics published a four issue-miniseries titled "Superman & Bugs Bunny". As you can imagine, it was a crossover between the DC Universe and the Looney Tunes. I've never read that crossover, but I've always wanted to read it just to see how characters from both universes would react if they met. So, this is how I was inspired to write this crossover. Anyway, here's the first chapter of it. By the way, the DC characters appearing in this are mostly based on a mix between the DC Animated Universe and the comics themselves.Justice Tunes 01 in General Fiction More Like This

For Black Panther, don't suggest Shadow. He's already cast as a Daredevil character. When you suggest a character that's already cast, at least find someone else that might replace that character in his previous role. Danny and Zuko might work, though. I'm not too sure about the T-Rex as Fin Fang Foom. As for the Pyscho Rangers Sorry, but I've stopped watching "Power Rangers" years before "Power Rangers in Space" was made and I only mostly remember "Mighty Morphin Power Rangers".

Several minutes after the match, Buster was inside some office set in the same arena. The one in charge of giving him the money was a dark brown-furred wolf with a black nose and pointy ears.

The last time she'd felt this nervous was when she waited for the League's vote after the Thanagarian Invasion. She'd been through countless of deadlier situations before and had never been this nervous. What was so different about this one?
Shayera frowned as she sat there on the bench. She looked up at the doors to the courtroom and sighed. She was getting bored from sitting there alone.
Bruce had told her to sit there and wait to be called; if she was needed. He also told her that if she saw anyone from the press, especially if it was Vicki Vale, to hightail it and hide somewhere. Entering through the backdoo

She truly had to think rationally now. She had to come to terms with her past before she told her stories to anyone. The worst act of violence she ever did in her life was in her early career in the military, as a simply soldier...a raw recruit. Nothing fancy or anything. It was an unfortunate accident but it was one that she could have easily avoided.
She had killed a child.
That was a fact, albeit unknown to others. A piece of her history that she could never change. All she could do was try to put it behind her, hide the thought of it in the darkest corner of her mind and try to forget about it. Where she could safely ignore it and deal with her day to day life.

They were just words and words had ways to deceive even the most intelligent minds. Perhaps she hadn't meant it; maybe they meant something else to her.

The Captain walked up with Seras and clicked his heels together and stood straighter if that was possible.
"Hm? Who ist zis?"
Seras walked up boldly. "I am Seras Victoria former police officer of the village of Cheddar which was destroyed."
"Oh." The Major got up and walked over. "It ist un pleasure officer Victoria. I am Herr Sturmbannfuhrer Montanna Max of das Letztes Battalion over seer of Operation Seelow 2"
Seras suddently felt a bit smaller than she should have. She knew that this man could crush her beneath his pinkey if he felt he wanted to.
"I .. Uh it is a plesure too H-Herr Stur ... what was it again?"
The Major chuckled his cheeks puffing up and down. "Sturmbannfuhrer. In english it

Seras awoke to an alarm blaring right next to her ear. She bolted upright and got doused by ice water. Rip stood with an empty bucket and Shrodinger with an air horn. Hans stood behind the two smirking. Rip pipped up at Seras whos eyes where now blazing red but soon returned to a golden color.
"It ist ok Seras! Ve do zis to all new recruits! However officers get un extra hour off sleep."
Seras rolled out of bed smirking and padded over to the bathroom. She turned on the warm water but heard wispering outside. Evil wispering. Seras shrugged it off and went into the shower. What she didnt hear was a certain cat-boy teleporting into the room and stealing her uniform AND towel. Soon Seras turned the water off and stepped out feeling refreashed. She felt the towel rack and felt nothing. She paled and realized she was missing a few things. Outside a giggling Schro stood with a poleroid camera. The door creeked open a few inches checking the coast. Seras saw no one especially

Hans soon arrived at a warehouse.
It was run down and shabby looking.
One of the walls was covered in grafiti.
Most of the windows were blown out.
Hans walked inside and saw a prone
figure on the other end of the place.
Hans moved in a little closer. He saw
that the figure's arms were raised over
their head and cuffed to a metal rod of
sorts. Hans edged closer still to get a
better view. He saw the figure clearly
now. It was Seras, only she was nude and
had tatters of her uniform gagging her.
She was unconcious. Movement cought Hans'
attention. A figure stepped out of the shadows.
He looked like your typical alien only he

this thing was, he screwed with the wrong

"Oh?" Alucard grinned. Things were about
to get very interesting. Hans sat up in
his bed. He had a nagging sensation in
the back of his head. He followed it out
into the hall up to Seras' room. It wasnt
coming from her room but rather past it.
Hans remembered Seras' words of caution
about her Master's end of the hall. 'Ist
zis how Alucard summons people to his room?'
Hans was curious so he followed the feeling
to Alucard's door. Hans gave a few light taps
on the door. The door slowly creaked open on
its own. Hans was a tad bit creeped out by this.
Hans cautiously moved into the room, all
senses on high aleart. Hans looked around
the room. He walked up to Alucard's throne.
It was empty. He glanced behind the throne
to see Alucard's coffin. He couldnt help but
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.

The three people in the car looked nothing out of the ordinairy. Infact they
looked like a small family. It was their destination that was warped and
twisted. The once bustling with life city had now been transformed into a haven
for the undead. Anderson drove twards the center of the city. He wanted to get
as close to the zepolin (hindenburg II) as possible. When Anderson judged he was
close enough he stopped and stepped out of the car. Then a burst of light broke
out behind him. All three of the party whipped around to gaze at the briliant
light. It was some form of flare in the shape of an angel. Anderson spotted a

"I was going to ask the same thing Father Anderson."

Robin looked calmly out at the apple heavy branches of the trees on the farm. "Boy howdy!" he said, looking at them all. "I sure have my work cut out for me. That there is the biggest bumper crop of apples I ever laid eyes on."
"Eeyup!" Big Macintosh said calmly next to him. His eyes then turned worried. "Too big for you to handle on your own."
Robin turned to Big Mac with a smile. As strange as it was to be living somepony else's life - especially a mare's life - having actual living blood relations was something quite welcome. As such, he had actually spent quite a bit of time with Big Mac, Apple Bloom, and Granny Smith... probably more than Applejack would have normally. He had explained that by saying the danger he'd faced pursuing the Elements of Harmony to stop Nightmare Moon had made him more aware of how easily the things a pony takes for granted can be lost.
At the time, Big Mac had replied, "Applejack, quit

Celestia sifted through her papers as she prepared for her journey to Ponyville. While she had sent a message ahead for everypony to expect her - she had long ago given up any chance of a succesful surprise visit, and the attempts were not worth remembering - she had specified that it would be a casual visit. Somehow she doubted she could manage that, but at least she knew of six ponies and one baby dragon who wouldn't get too formal. Maybe they could set examples for the others.
There was a knock on her door, and she glanced at her schedule. 'Oh, that's right,' she thought to herself. 'I'm finally getting around to hearing the battalion's report on the encounter with Shul Viin Ahst Vulon. Since the sky became clear and the entire battalion returned, there wasn't any urgency in hearing the report.' She looked up at the door. "Come in, Captain."

Raven opened her eyes quickly, blinking as she raised her face from the pages of the book. 'Huh,' she thought to herself. 'I don't remember falling asleep while reading.' She blinked her eyes and shook her head. She blew as a strand of her purple hair fell in front of her eyes. She blinked as she noticed she was outside. 'I also don't remember going outside to read. ...I also never read on my stomach, so how did that happen?' She reached forward to pick up the book she had - apparently - been reading... and stared as she saw a lavender hoof in place of the hand she had been expecting.
She blinked. Once. Twice. Thrice. 'Okay...' she thought, continuing her internal monolouge. 'I have lavender hooves.' she glanced at where she expected her other arm was, and saw a hoof and foreleg. 'Yes. Hooves. Why do I have hooves instead of hands? I appear to be quadrapedal...

As Raven stared for a moment in shock, a pink blur slammed bodily into her and she found herself on the end of a familiar crushing embrace.
"Oh friend Raven I am so glad to see you! I was afraid I was the only one who had somehow become one of the ponies of Magical Friendship and it was most frightening to once more be all alone on a strange world, but at the same time most thrilling because of how much I have enjoyed the show and the conventions and the fandom even if I do not like the artwork of the thirty-fourth rule that the internet safe search blocks as I do not understand enough of human interaction to know why a pony is sexy, but it is so good to see you!"
Raven blinked twice. "Good to see you too, Star...but I can't breathe."
"Oh, I'm sorry!" Starfire - who apparently was Pinkie Pie - immediately released her. "I did not know I was so strong as a pony.

"I still don't understand how a scheduled drizzle from two weeks ago could have been missed, compelling such a powerful storm to be scheduled today."
Robin pulled down another loose branch. "I don't understand all the magi-techno babble, but as I understand it, there was too much magic in the air after Twi banished the tarrasque to risk makin any rain. Apparently, strong magic and weather don't mix well. Took a week for the residue to dissipate."
"Then why couldn't they have done it last week? Wouldn't that have worked better?"

As he lay back against the branch, he thought back to the discussion the group had a week ago in the library, taking a break from Luna's Welcome Back party.

Zecora calmly stepped out of the Everfree Forest, pulling the hood of her cloak up to shield her eyes from the bright sun. Sighing, she once more headed into the small town of Ponyville, seeking to purchase the ingredients for her potions she was unable to procure within the forest. However, she doubted she would be anymore able to do so this month then she had any other month, and would once more be required to search beyond her normal range for what she needed. She didn't know why the shops were always closed whenever she came into town. Perhaps she just had bad timing, or bad luck. So far, journeying from her homeland to discover other culture's ways was not working out well.
As she stepped into town, however, she noticed something different in the air. It was subtle, yet profound. Always before, every door would be locked tight, and not a sound could be heard throughout the whole town. Such impression would have led

She could tell that there wasn't all that much activity yet, as her raptor eyes could easily trace the movement of every bug on each blade of grass...if any of them were moving to track, that is. 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.
'Don't even want to think about that,' she thought to herself as she glided down to the plainly visible cloud house. 'I'll just talk with Rainbow, see what happens. Less I need to say, the better.' Approaching the door, she raised one claw to knock. As the knock echoed, she tilted her head. 'Still can't figure out how pegasi make clouds as hard as doors.'
When the door opened, Gilda opened her beak to give a cool greeting, but paused when she saw no pony at eye height.

Animate Object: one of the most deceptively useful spells ever created, especially for a travelling showmare.
As she reached the clear spot she had selected for presenting her show, she released the spell on the trailer, taking a few shallow breaths. "Alright, Trixie," she said to herself.

And now she'd been invited to Diamond Tiara's cutsin-whatever-it-was.

With Tammany Crux's sudden disappearance in the wake of the police issuing an arrest warrant for him, Bruce's victory in the campaign was now all but assured. 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. At the last party Bruce hosted, an eclectic mix of clientele was in attendance, ranging from humanitarians to gangsters (or at least, alleged gangsters: if the police had

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.

Under normal circumstances, he would be doing so in his fabled Batcave, where he would be in full battle regalia and collaborating with his allies that had helped in. Even though Batman wasn't afraid to get physical with his enemies, the Dark Knight's forte lay in forensics. His sharp mind had allowed him to overcome enemies where even his vaunted martial arts abilities and technology would fail, and it was his sharp mind that made him such a valuable commodity to Gotham City Police Department. If it were just his fists that drove his campaign against crime, Commissioner Gordon probably wouldn't have allowed him to work for so long.
