Today was not going your way, not at all. This morning you had shown up late for a very important meeting, had bumped into Ivan who followed you around for a bit being creepy, were given a bunch of paperwork at 10:00am and were told it was all dew at 12:00 and now it was pouring with rain and you forgot to bring your umbrella. Lucas who had lost track of time while studying walked up stopping when he saw you standing in the entrance. Curious on why you were still here he walked up and taped you on the shoulder...
What do you do?

Come on Dick you can do this. Get up! NOW! he thought.
He somehow managed to make his arms work and his eyes opened slightly. He willed himself to get up and his arms braced themselves and shook as he slowly started to rise.
He could hear voices but his thoughts were too clouded with pain and exhaustion to decipher the words.
He felt a sharp pain in his ribs and he collapsed back to the ground with a soft grunt. The voices stopped. There were several pairs of footsteps coming his way.

Nightwing was unconscious for the first few hours and Ahsoka was worried if he would make it through but Robin assured her, "He'll be fine. He's been in worse situations." But even he doubted himself; yeah he's been through a lot and so has Dick but what if he didn't make it out this time? Tim shook his head. Just thinking about that sort of stuff will only make things worse.
Batman was looking as grim as ever but he too was worried about his ward.
When they finally got to the cruiser Nightwing had regained consciousness and was rushed off to the infirmary along with Ahsoka and the injured clone troopers.
Anakin, Obi-Wan and Captain Rex signalled Batman and Robin to follow them to the bridge.
"Will Dick be ok?" Tim asked Bruce who just slightly shrugged his shoulders.

A Simple Misunderstanding Chap 10The trip to Coursant was quiet and uneventful. Nightwing's injuries and wounds had healed considerably. He was still limping about on his knee and his shoulder was still stiff and sore but it no longer bled. But his ribs were still mending.A Simple Misunderstanding Chap 10 in General Fiction More Like This
Ahsoka's injuries had healed up quite well too. She still felt pain in her ribs but her knee was coming along smoothly. She could limp about without too much hassle, however the medic informed her and the Jedi council she would have to take several weeks off to fully heal and recuperate before she could return to active duty.
When they finally arrived, the Jedi council asked them to come over immediately for a debriefing.
The Master, Knight, Padawan, Batman, Robin and Nightwing made their way through the massive corridors of the Jedi Temple to the council chamber where in a half circle sat the members of the high council. Master Yoda, Mace Windu were present along with three other members, the others were represented by holograms as they were attend

Batman and Robin were about to make yet another circuit of the city when a black shadow swung by.
Batman and Robin turned to meet Nightwing. The former Boy Wonder smiled at them.
"Hey Nightwing." Tim said joyfully.
"How's my little brother coping with big ol' grumpy?" Dick winked at him.
"I assume you're not here for a visit." said Batman, always getting straight to the point.
"It's nice to see you too. Yes you're right I've found him."
Batman moved at this, "You mean it this time?"
"Yes it didn't take much to persuade my 'friend'." Nightwing folded his arms in front of him.
Robin just looked between the pair.
"Who is he? Why is it that no one ever tells me anything!" He exclaimed. Bruce and Dick just looked at him.

New Beginnings Chap 1I woke feeling drowsy with the mother of all headaches. I tried to move but I noticed my hands were bound behind my back and my feet were bound too. I tested the bonds, wincing as I felt metal cut into my flesh; the bonds were made out of some kind of metal, similar to barbed wire. I looked around and became acquainted with my surroundings. I was in some massive underground, well lit room.New Beginnings Chap 1 in General Fiction More Like This
How did I get here? I thought and then I heard a murmur behind me. I turned as much as my bonds would let me and noticed around a dozen hostages. The only difference between them and I was they were bound with rope, not this painful wire.
I heard a noise. There were big, burly men armed with all sorts of weapons; guns, knives, electric sticks, the works. There was smoke and I heard men cry out and a fight start. Later the smoke cleared and around half a dozen were down. And out walked him. Nightwing. Blue finger stripes and all. He taunted the men and several charged at him and they disappeare

She woke feeling a flutter in her belly. The baby was squirming inside Taryn's uterus and she had one of those crystallizing moments when she realized just what exactly her body was going through. And just how scary it could be.
Taryn put on a happy face. She smiled and bought cute clothes. But in the times when she was alone, when her phone was dead, and her computer no longer entertained her and the Hills wasn't on . . . she was afraid of what was happening. And what would happen.
The conception of the baby demi-goddess that moved in her belly was purely mystical. But what about the birth? Taryn watched a documentary just the other day that showed in horrendous detail just what happen

She walked out into the living room. Early morning sunlight flowed through the window. Kelly sighed. Baby was kicking and squirming, making it hard to find a comfortable position on the couch. She settled for staying up. Mornings were easy for Kelly; she hadn't been a night person since her high school years and when she had started college, she made a complete reversal. This came about because her favorite classes were often scheduled first thing in the morning.

Ronson the Mighty was well aware he was being watched as he spied on the Royal Council. They sat in the main office in City Hall, shouting and debating heavily. As usual. Ronson sighed and adjusted his position in the tree. They loved to debate and shout. It was what the four did more than lead, really.
Ronson took a quick look around. He knew who was watching him and how long they had been watching him. He tried to give his own watcher the impression that he suspected but didn't know. He hoped the look around was enough.
About to give up his position and head off to the Circle Club to meet with the others, Ronson's attention was suddenly drawn back to the office window. His eyes widened as Layla and Artis were escorted into the room by four guards and the so-called 'Wizard King.'
"Shit," he muttered.

"Good to see you, buddy!" she said, brushing the golden strands of her hair back.
"You too, Shania. Everyone."
They all stood together for the first time a long time. Ronson the Mighty, their great leader. Uhler, the Dragon-Slayer; big bellied and half-Giant. Andras, the quarter giant red head.

Layla was probably about seven weeks pregnant by the time they left Fold Valley. And while some of her symptoms were jumbled during the transit from Earth to Ciro, they had all begun to exert themselves. Aside from morning sickness (which being on her feet made worse) and the enlarging of her breasts (making her bra feel way too tight), she had been lucky. And then, the fatigue kicked in. She struggled to make it through the morning now, hardly able to keep pace with Ronson.
She needed to pee constantly and she dehydrated quickly. What had once been a few predictable issues now became an all-out war against her status quo. Her abdomen cramped. She felt bloated and gassy. And so worn down . . .
It was not something she was ready for and the systematic arrival of each symptom came with a new set of questions. Was it normal? Why was it happening?

In her dream, Layla was standing in the saloon. It was empty. The chairs circled around upside down tables. A varying amount of empty shot glasses were on the bar. The flames in the fireplace were blue and green and then yellow and then black. Layla was wearing her hoody and a skirt.
The doors opened and Ronson walked in. "The fundamental truth in all worlds is that a chicken omelet is really gross. Think about it."
Layla answered: "I know."
"Do you like my tattoos?" Ronson asked.
"Reminds me of a cheeseburger," she replied, rubbing her hips.
"You're showing," he said then, poking her stomach.
She looked down. The belly of her hoody was filling out. She grunted as the skin itched. Layla looked up at the fireplace. The walls of the saloon were replaced with that of her bedroom back home. Ronson was sitting next to her on t

They had made it. From the docks, they rode through the mountain pass until the reached the easternmost city of Cartarnos Circle Crossing. The Royal Council took up residence in the city hall.
Circle Crossing was often considered the most secure of all the kingdoms cities -- isolated from the other cities and towns and nestled in the Veron Mountains. The circular roads didn't help either. And for the rest of the season, it was left alone. Days after the fall of the Palace and the Great City, refugees slowly began to stream into Circle Crossing. Many of them came with horror stories of what had happened after the Royal Council left.

"Ronson, we really need to talk," Rick said, looking from the cow lady. She was crying.
"You got that right. What is going on here?"
"Ronson?" Layla asked, coming slowly awake. "Ugh, I'm so tired. What happened?"
"Nothing good. But what is going on here?"
Everyone just kinda looked at each other except Blorp, who continued to snore. Finally, Layla sat up and pointed at Audrey. "She's the third."
Ronson's eyes widened. He walked over to Audrey and looked her over. After a few seconds, he turned to Rick.
