The yellow and black flying tech bug was jetting all over the sky. Soaring here and there. He was chuckling to himself as he continued to do figure eights in the sky. A rather disgruntled Oswald Cobblepot, better known as the Penguin, gripped in his hand. Firefly had the shorter man by the back of his tux jacket. Giving him a good view of Gotham City. Penguin didn't look so pleased and a little bit sick at going so fast. He wasn't the least bit thrilled because the other criminal had barged in on his date with Erin Knightly. The redhead was standing just beneath them on the ground, looking less than pleased.
"Psh! Knightly, please! This flightless bird needs to be taught the ropes of what it's like to live in this city!" Firefly told her.
Erin made a disapproving face, planting herself firmly on the ground, her hands on her hips. Lips pressed together and glaring up at him. Not that Firefly really cared.

If you have a reasonable explanation that is fine and I applaud you for having one. But I DO NOT tolerate someone's character not liking him because "he's a creep", "he's not smart", and OR NOT EVEN PUTTING A REASON and I am looking at anyone who has a character in the "TB" (the Batman) verse for the latter because THAT SEEMS TO BE THE TREND.

She hated the walls. The feeling of being isolated and locked away. Arkham Asylum's dampness and cold atmosphere was only measured by it's screaming and insane occupants. The doctor's were trying to be helpful but they were just as distant as the broodish, well built and muscled guards who walked and roamed the corridors and hallways of all the floors. She hated them just as much for no reason but maybe the fact she wanted to get out and be free. Part of her felt she didn't belong there, however, she did, in a way.
Guenhivyre Pendragon sighed in a frustrated manner. Mostly because, while wearing the dark gray pajamas the inmates were given, her wings were not able to open freely.

Jervis Tetch turned off the television with very little interest in the thing to begin with and reached down to pick up his cup of tea. The last few drags of liquid had long grown cold but he stomachs it regardless, not wanting to waste it. He took the cup and saucer to the sink and just wets it a little to soak before turning off the light next to the couch. Standing there for a few seconds, he glances towards the door just opposite the back of the couch. Chewing his lower lip for a second, dark eyes scanning precisely where the door stood ajar just a little, he quietly makes his way over just a little.

She stood in the middle of the snack aisle, a list clutched in her hand. There were at least fifty more items to be bought.

Arkham Asylum seemed a rather desolate place now. The air around the asylum grounds seemed to hang there, the fall leaves that now sat decaying under the trees barely ruffled as the building itself seemed to be holding its breath in anticipation of the cold night to come. A thin coat of ice covered the windows of the common room, irritating some of the residents who normally gazed through them at the city beyond.
One of the residents being the Joker. His normally pleasant demeanor had been replaced with dull irritation as he halfheartedly drew a smiling face on the cold window with his toes.
Penguin seemed happy to see the ice and snow but then his look also turned sour as he remembered that he wasn't permitted outside to enjoy the frosty weather after his last escape attempt. He sighed, irritated as well.
"So What's got you down Joker? You're usually bouncing off the walls by now." He thought about it, "literally."

He remembered the look on your face when he told you. You told him you were a scout, and that you couldn’t afford to be a coward. He only clicked his tongue and demanded you stay out of harm’s way. You never could figure out why he was being so blatantly protective of you, but now, maybe you never would.

It had been almost a year since the car accident. Almost a year since you’d woken up, almost a year since you’d seen Loki in the mirror. Almost a year…
“Hello? Earth to (Y/N), anyone in there? Why are you so depressed? Ever since you got out of the hospital you’ve been like Miss Doom and Gloom,” Your friend, Amy, told you as she leaned forward to rest her elbows on the coffee table you were both currently seated at.
You reach up and ran your fingers across the surface of the heart pendant that still hung around your neck.
“Look, Amy, I don’t really feel like going to the club tonight.” You sighed and leaned forward, resting your cheek on the palm of your open hand.
“You’re so boring now! It’s not even a real club! It’s more like a hang out place. I’m starting to think that that dream was real!”
Your mind flashed back to your time in the other dimension, the dimension where you truly belonged. You

You tugged the mask back over your face before peeking over the edge of the building you were perched on top of. You had been trailing your assignment for over a week and were eager to get it over with.
This one was personal.
It had been a year since you'd caught Clint cheating and you'd gone back to your old ways. As soon as he'd left, you'd started hunting down your old employer and, after explaining your situation, he'd given you your position back and it was almost like the past two years of your life had never happened.
You grinned wickedly as he appeared on the busy New York street below you. You wouldn't make your move now, too many people.
But he was scheduled for a mission today. A mission that just so happened to be an exploration of your employer's compound. You were just glad that he had trusted you enough to task you with the deed.
The deed to kill Clint Barton.
You were going to have way to much fun with this. Hopefully he would recognize you. A gruff voice in your earpie

"Do you always eat like this?" You asked, getting over your momentary astonishment of the delicacies that sat on the long banquet table. Thor chuckled his goofy chuckle, "Of course, we Asgardians eat more than the average mortal."
"Oh, believe me, I know you do." Bruce mumbled, which caused everyone to laugh considering they all knew how much Thor ate. You couldn't help but notice that Loki remained silent, his attention on the food at the table. Then you suddenly remembered that he hadn't eaten with his family ever since...well....a while.
"Are you alright, Loki?" You questioned in a low voice. Loki's blank stare turned to you and he blinked a few times before comprehending that you were standing in front of him, "Hmm? Uh, yes, quite alright." You looked at him a hand on your hip, your eyes giving away the fact that you didn't believe him.

"So this Enchantress chick, are we sure she's the one who took (Y/N)? I mean, nothing's happened in the past week," Tony leaned precariously back into his chair, moving to prop his feet up on the conference table. The Avengers were currently in one of the conference rooms that Tony usually rented out. "Do not... How do you Midgardians say it? Lynx it?" Thor pondered this for a moment, drumming his fingers on the wooden surface of the table.
"Jinx it," Clint corrected before continuing, "Thor's right, don't look a gift horse in the mouth." Tony rolled his eyes, "What? If she hasn't made her move in a week, then I doubt she'll ever make one." "Tony, this is serious. (Y/N)'s life is on the line, remember what Loki said about her?" Natasha's voice was strained as though she had to fight to keep it calm. "What? That she's actually from this dimension? Then wouldn't she want to find her real parents?"

"Congrats, (Y/N)!" Steve patted your back as you put away the electronic guitar.
"Thanks," You replied, smiling at him before turning to talk to a grumpy looking Tony.
"I'll admit, you're pretty good from someone who's not from this dimension." Tony stated, shrugging his shoulders.
"We have Guitar Hero in my world to, Tony." You rolled your eyes at him and yawned, stretching your arms above your head.
"Well, we should hit the hay. We've a long day ahead of us tomorrow." Steve said, noticing your yawn.
Everyone said there good nights and you followed Natasha out of the game room and to your room, giving her a warm good night before closing the door to your room.
You rifled through your shopping bags, searching for the pajamas that you had bought earlier. You decided to just put everything away into drawers and in the closet.

You slowly lowered your head into your hands, the sensation that consumed it equivalent to that of a thousand tiny hammers pounding on the inside of your skull. You shut your sore eyes, unsure of how the situation could possibly get any worse.
“Come,” The Enchantress said quietly. Your head snapped up, unsure if you heard the kindness in her voice or if, perhaps, it had been something you imagined. She gave you a small comforting smile, holding a hand out to you.
You reached out a shaky hand, placing it in hers. She pulled you up and for once, walked side by side with you as she brought you back to your cell.
“I apologize for my behavior earlier,” She clasped her hands in front of her before continuing, “I only wanted to be sure that you were the one.”
“The one, what?” You asked, unsure if she was being sincere or if she was trying to pull one over.
She looked out at you from the corner of her intense green eyes before giving you a sly sm

“Everyone got it?” Tony asked.
“Yeah, Tony, the plan’s not that difficult. Hulk smashes us out and we just follow after him. You don’t have to be a genius to understand that,” You replied sarcastically.
“Well, excuse me for wanting to help little miss ungrateful!”
You rolled your as at Tony, who was currently being a drama queen.
“Are you sure about this?” Bruce questioned tentatively.
The Avengers nodded their heads slowly and Bruce sighed before turning and looking at the opposite wall.
“Okay, here goes nothing.” You watched in awe as he doubled in size, his arms growing to huge proportions and his skin turning green. The Hulk roared in anger before his fist slammed through the stone wall.
Torch light flooded into the cell, allowing you to see the fragments and pieces of human skull that now littered the ground. The Hulk turned and smiled at The Avengers before his radioactive green eyes landed on Loki.

“(Y/N), you have to stay here!” Loki said, looking down at you, his armor beginning to appear. “Tony, suit, now!” Steve shouted. Tony was already half way down the hall when he froze and turned, “Will that count in the bet?” Steve looked angrily at Tony, “Not now Stark.” Bruce sighed, “No Tony, it won’t count.” Tony gave a nod of his head and ran down the hall, the door to his lab already opening. The rest of the Avengers ran down the hall to their rooms, getting their suits.
“No! I’m not going to stay here!” You grabbed Loki’s arm. He turned and looked at you and you were taken aback for a moment, his eyes were a strange mixture of green and red and they were filled with regret, sadness, and something you had never seen in his eyes, fear. “(Y/N), please, we can’t afford to lose you.

Your progress towards the gardens was slow, but you chatted with Loki along the way. You shifted the weight of his arm on your shoulder before continuing. "Did that really happen?"
Loki laughed before wincing slightly, "Yes, if I hadn't masked us with smoke, all of us would be dead!" You thought for a moment, wanting to ask him the question that had been nagging your mind for a while, "Do you ever miss it? Those times you spent with Thor and Lady Sif and the warriors three?" Loki looked down at you, an unreadable emotion passing through his eyes before he looked away, not giving you time to decipher it.
"Why yes, of course I do. Sometimes," He winced slightly and you slowed down your pace, "I wonder what it would be like if I hadn't done all the things I've done, hadn't made all the mistakes I've made. What it would be like to still feel like an insider instead of an outsider." He gave you a half smile before looking up again, "I'm not sure if you understand that."

The executioner frowned as he looked down upon you. You were astonished with his height; he looked as though he could be taller than Thor, and twice as wide! He picked you up by your waist and threw you over his shoulder, carrying you deeper into the room.
You squealed as he lifted you up, holding onto his shoulder so that you wouldn’t fall off. He dropped you down onto a metal table and strapped you down to it, the leather digging into your wrists and ankles. The click of the Enchantress’ heels echoed through the halls as she once again entered the room, standing over your now helpless form.
“You will talk, I will make you.” She waved a hand and the executioner slowly moved to a device by the table, a strange machine of sorts. He pulled away a peculiar item that resembled a headset and attached it to your forehead. He continued pulling things from the machine and attaching them to your arms and legs.

After the moment of initial shock was gone, Loki’s calculative mind began running through every possible scenario. Who would have taken Caedra? Who could have taken Caedra? Not just anyone could have access to the gardens. And wouldn’t someone have seen her? Then Loki remembered. Sif. He had left Caedra with Sif. So where was she? He looked around again, though he knew he would find nothing else. There was no trace of the warrior maiden anywhere.
The thought went through his mind that this was somehow Sif’s doing. He hoped it wasn’t true – not because he cared for her, but because it would mean that she had played him. For the sake of his pride it couldn’t be true. But even then it didn’t make sense for Sif to have done this. She would never do anything to harm Caedra. Besides, if she had wanted to take Caedra away from him, all she would have needed to do was go to Thor. No, Loki confirmed in his mind, this was not

It had been hours since Loki had been dragged out of the throne room. Just how many hours it had been, he didn’t know, and at this point, didn’t care. He had been screaming and fighting the whole way back to his chambers, and even then he had banged on the door for hours after, all the while continuing to shout and scream. He didn’t care that ultimately it did him no good. He just wanted out. He needed out.
He only fell silent when from complete exhaustion he collapsed on the floor between the door and bed. When he awoke a few hours later, he was still alone, though he could tell that someone had entered while he had been asleep. A tray of food had been placed on the table, as well as a bucket of ice and a think, sturdy cloth.
Loki stood up and glanced down at his hand. It was badly bruised and slightly swollen, especially around his knuckles which had carried the brunt of the force as he’d hit Thor.

Loki stood on the balcony adjoining his chambers, gazing out across the city with a grave expression. It was as beautiful a day as possible in Asgard, but he did not seem to notice. He didn’t seem to notice anything, for his mind was only focused on one thing – Caedra. What had become of her and Sif? Thor had set out after them the prior evening and if all had gone well he should have already returned. But he was not back yet, which only left Loki to wonder what had happened. Not knowing was driving him mad.
He fingered a piece of fruit between his slender fingers before releasing it to fall to the ground far below. He’d not had much of an appetite since he had been locked in his room. Loki pulled another grape of the vine and let it fall. Grapes were Caedra’s favorite sort of fruit. The child would eagerly eat any she was given, at any time. Loki could only give a faint smile at remembering. He missed her dearly.
“Loki?” he heard Frigga

Every healer was busily tending to what survivors there were, and with every moment more and more arrived. Loki carried the young girl to him, holding her close. He could feel the stares of everyone as he passed by, wondering what on earth he was doing with this child. He didn’t care what they thought. Let them wonder. Let their minds create whatever horrid stories they would. His only concern was for the child in his arms.
By now the child had stopped crying, and lay still in his arms as she looked around curiously. When the healers were in sight, she had gripped tighter to Loki’s neck, as if she feared being separated from him. He relished the child’s innocent touch. She trusted him completely – it was not something he was used to.
Loki was almost to the healers when someone blocked his path. Loki glared at Thor, who eyed him suspiciously.
“What is this, brother?” Thor inquired, staring at the little child that looked up at him with

As Loki’s feet touched the cold, icy ground of Jotunheim, he fell suddenly to his knees, gasping for air. He could feel his strength leaving him – the price he had paid to travel through realms. Such magic was costly regardless, but added to that was the fact that Loki had not used any spell nearly so powerful in a very long time. He was therefore out of practice and had no doubt used far more energy than was necessary.
Loki stayed crouched for a few more moments, trying to gather enough strength to stand. Slowly, he lifted his head and looked at his surroundings. Jotunheim really didn’t look all that much different to him.
Jotunheim’s landscape still had icy mountains and spires of dark rock and ice. Now, many of those spires had been leveled and made to be little more than fallen pillars in the snow around him. Vast crevices and trenches snaked off into the distance, revealing just how much damage this realm had suffered, both in the war fought lon

“And Loki cares for this child?” Odin asked, leaning back into his seat.
Thor nodded. “He will not admit it and he tries very hard to hide it, but I can see that he is different around her. He is gentle and caring – not to mention that he has spent nearly every waking moment by her side.”
“And this child – Caedra, you said her name was – she cares for Loki?"
Thor nodded again. “But that is understandable given the circumstances. She is a young, frightened child and he was the first to find her.” He paused. “What should I do, father?”
Odin sighed deeply. No longer was he king and still he practically giving orders. “It is not my place to tell you what you must do, Thor.” He answered. “I can only give my opinion.”
“Then I would be grateful to hear it.” Thor replied.

As Loki walked around the palace, he made his way to the gardens. He still couldn’t believe that Thor had simply let him go without a punishment. Yes, he had sentenced Loki to imprisonment in the palace, but it was no different from what his life had been before he’d escaped to Jotunheim. There was no added stipulation, there was no privilege removed. Nothing had changed.
He continued to walk, lost in his thoughts, until he heard someone come up beside him. Glancing over his shoulder he saw that it was Frigga.

Yes, there was the “we might die” factor, but that wasn’t the most pressing concern to him. If, during the process of sharing his thoughts and memories, you came across his plans with Algrim, well…he didn’t care to think what would come after that. Would you hate him?

“Jotunheim?” Thor repeated. “Why would they go there?”
Loki gave a slight shrug. “Undoubtedly they did not intend to. You said Sif attacked him before he could set down the last stone. Having to make such a hurried escape and being rather distracted, he set down the wrong stone.” He glanced from the “Jotunheim” stone in his hand to the “Midgard” stone Thor held. “They look similar enough.”
Again Thor glanced down to the stone in his hand as he wondered what exactly he should now do. The obvious answer was to go to Jotunheim, but it would take at least a few days before all the necessary preparations could be made – not counting the overall danger of even going to Jotunheim. With the Bifrost gone, dark energy was the only way to travel between realms, and there were only a select few who could use such magic – a select few that included Loki.

It had been a bloody battle, to say the least. Countless soldiers from each side had been killed all over the palace. The chance of finding survivors among the carnage was unlikely at this point, but soldiers were still sent out to search. The people still wanted the hope that all had not been lost.
Hope. It was such a weak sentiment. What good was hope in a time like this? Hope would not get them anywhere with retaliation. Revenge, anger, that was all one needed. But Thor is ever hopeful…and pathetic.
Loki strolled down what was once a grand hall in the palace, taking little notice of the desolation around him. He had wanted, no needed, to get away from the screaming and crying of those who had survived. Their screams were aggravating to him. It probably would not have bothered him so much if he had caused their screams…
In the silence he looked around, trying to remember how the palace looked before the attack. Even he had trouble remembering what it onc
