Beast Boy shivered as they stood in the frozen reaches of Russia. He suddenly sneezes. "Why does it have to be this cold?"
"Why not just turn into an arctic or antarctic animal?" Raven asks, shifting in her robe. It had been enchanted to keep out all temerature extremes, so she was quite comfortable.
"I can't do a penguin cause there's not enough ice to slide on, and all other arctic morphs the primary adaption is the colorless fur! It helps to retain heat, but my fur - no matter my shape - will always be green, which mitigates the usefullness." He sneezes again. "Sorry, Rae, I don't mean to complain."
Raven looks down at him, concerned, then starts futzing with her robe and unitard. "Then do a kitten."
"Do the face."
"Uhh...okay." He shifts into the tiny green kitten form. *But I don't see how this will keep me warm-*

Beast Boy sat in the common room, playing a game. Whatever the game he was playing, the text wasn't in english. Cyborg came in behind him.
"Hey, BB...what are you playing?"
"The new Mega Monkeys 4."
"But...but that doesn't come to America for months!"
"My old man was out of the country a few weeks back, and he sent me an import copy as a souveneir."
"Dude! ...can you read that text?"
",,,Cool! Gimme 2P!"
Robin had begun to obsess over Slade, more so than usual, considering Slade was dead. At first, it seemed like things were going in a horrible direction, but then Beast Boy noticed an odd scent about him. Discussing it with Raven, she took a quick peek into Robin's head. Seeing what was happening, the team figured out rather rapidly that Robin was under the effect of a carefully crafted hallucinogen, and put him through detox.&

"Okay, is everyone ready?" Robin asked the team.
"I sure am!" Cyborg said. "This is gonna be awesome!"
"This sounds most enjoyable!" Starfire proclaimed.
"Sweetness!" Beast boy declared.
"Why am I here again?" Raven asked sourly.
Robin looked at her. "Because this is a team building exercise, as well as a fun activity for all of us. We aren't just a team, after all. We're a family."
Raven rubbed her forehead. She hated when Robin talked about family. Given their various pasts, there was no way she could argue with it. "But...Halloween costumes?"
"Yep! And we're each going to choose a different team mates costume. No trades, no vetoes. All decisions are final, whcih makes this a trust building exercise as well." He glared towards Beast boy and Cyborg. "Anyone who picks a joke costume will be forced to wear it themselves."

Raven cleared her throat, and Robin looked up. "Yes, Raven? What is it?"
"Well, there's a rather important holiday coming up, and I was wondering if I could invite some friends and family over to celebrate."
"Really? Sure, why not. It'll be nice to meet your family." Robin smiled, wondering what holiday was coming up. He couldn't think of one, other than Easter, which was a ways away. Then again, he didn't even know what Raven's religion was. It could be one he'd never heard of.
"Thanks, RObin." Raven closed her eyes, touching fingers to her forehead. Then she smiled. "Okay, the invitations are sent, they'll all be here."
"Cool." RObin thought for a bit. "Anything I can do to help set up?"
"Actually, think you could help me lock all the chumutz up in the evidence garage?"

Raven lay in her room, on her bed, trapped. Her emotions were going wild...out of control...her powers were wrecking her room. She knew what was causing this. Her emotions would not stay silent...where a certain green changeling was concerned.
-How can you see into my eyes like open doors?-
He always knew what was wrong, even if he couldn't do anything about it. He was always there for her.
-Leading down into my core where I've become so numb-
When he was distant from her...she felt dead...like nothing was worth it...
Several pieces of statuary shattered.
-Without a soul, my spirit sleeping somewhere cold-
She was always trapped...unable to escape, to live.
-Until you find it there and lead it back home-
But he set her free.
-Wake me up

She was trapped in her waking nightmare.
-I can't wake up

Raven sighed, rubbing her forehead. "Again while I'm in the bubble bath...Well, if I send you back, will you stay gone? Or do I have to kill you?"
"Umm..." The demon seemed at a loss. He had expected rage, fear, or possibly embarrassment, since she was naked in the bath. Not...resigned boredom.
"I mean, I'd really rather not have to splatter someone else...demon blood is impossible to scrub out of linoleum. I had to take it all up and replace it." She stared irritatedly at the walls and floor. "And I hate the new pattern..."
Now the demon was worried. She didn't even seem concerned with him, and...splatter? "Umm...if it's not too much to ask, who did you splatter?"

THe battle with Adonis was getting intense. If that weren't bad enough, Beast Boy had been off his game with transformations the past few days. Raven didn't know what was wrong, and she didn't have time to worry about it. When Adonis pinned her to the ground, Beast Boy went postal on him. The chemical spill worried her, especially when she saw his body absorb some of it. Adonis fell.
As he left she tried to snap him back to himself. "Any good freakouts lately?"
He spun on her. She expected anger, but what she saw was a strange heat in his eyes, a fire that had nothing to do with anger, and it sent shivers through her whole being. When he spoke, it was all she could do to hear the words.
"Maybe I just got tired of being...pushed around."
The way he said it left her rooted to the spot.

Starfire wandered her room in quiet frustration. "Why? Why does Robin not return my affections? Why does he push me away? Am...am I not good enough?
"No. I know he cares for me...but why does he not show it more?"
As she became lost in her mind, her memories, a song she'd heard recently sprung to mind, and poured forth.
"I need love, love, to ease my mind," she sang, thinking ofhow much she needed Robin to be with her. "I need to find someone to call mine, but k'norfka said,"
An image of Galfore filled her mind, back when he gave her advice on relationships, but somehow his words became song-like.
"You can't hurry love, no, you just have to wait. I say, love don't come easy, it's a game of give and take," he shook his finger at Starfire in her mind. "You can't hurry love, you just have to wait. You got to trust, givce it time, no matter how long it takes."

Terra had attacked them all, determined to destroy them. Backed by Slade, aided by Plasmus, Cinderblock, and Overload, she was working her way through the Titans. Starfire and Cyborg had already fallen, and now she was facing off against Beast Boy.
He snarled at her. "Before we begin, answer me one thing: were you ever truely one of us, or were you working for Slade from the very beginning?"
"Beast Boy...how can you say that? I tried to save you...to spare you all of this. I loved you...still do. I thought you loved me."
"You thought wrong. My heart was given a long time ago. There's no place in it for you the way you want."
"What? Is that emotionless witch so much better than me?"

When Terra had asked him to go out that night, he didn't know what was going on, but he thought maybe - just maybe - he could finally help her. When they went all th way out of town, he was somewhat concerned, but he got over it. He figured she just wanted to show him somepace special to her.
When they hit the bar, he watched the other people there warily. While not his choice of venue, he could deal. The cake was pretty good, and it was good to see her laugh. But...something kept nagging at him.
At the carnival, he tried to have fun, give her what she needed...but something in the depths of his mind kept nagging at him. It wasn't until the Ferris Wheel, though, when she leaned in to kiss him, that he knew what it was.
This was wrong.
He shouldn't be out here, not when...
Realization hit him, and he leaped off of the Ferris Wheel. Terra came off after him.

How sweet was the sound of you dying?
In pools of blood, were you smiling?

Your life and your sweetness inside,
I took your life on that cold night...
Crying all these tears of weakness,
Sweet bird you took on my sickness.
Deep inside of the forest of witches,

Though I took, I'm never satisfied,
I miss you, now I'll come to your side...

She Dances With FireShe dances with fire, a dragon in tow.She Dances With Fire in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Twirling with flames; graceful and slow
She dances tonight, in a city of ash.
Her feet leaving footprints, where the sand will splash.
Quietly mourning, as time goes by;
Where once she beheld a home in her eyes...
Yet naught but the barest of bones remain,
And so she dances, to soothe the pain.

Who apparently thought that it was cool to be crass.
And she turned her tongue upon the profession of writing;
Apparently she felt that it was in need of a smiting.
Though her raving and ranting made very little sense,
She seemed to be taking a rather harsh stance.
Apparently her pain was too great to be understood,
Far beyond the comprehension of this man from the hood.
So I stood there in swagger, clad in my bling.
While she behaved like 'Moon-Moon', in search of a thing.
She spouted some nonsense, some far fetched line,
About never idolizing the keen writer's mind...
If that is the case, then why ape my technique?
Why submit to several galleries; is your brain on the leak?
You are writing to be seen; you seek attention as I do,
What are we if not performers, is that not true?
Did you believe that you could use your past as a shield?

When we hit the all time low.
When the second-hand serenades no longer cut it,
And when simply 'letting it burn' no longer works for us.
We roll upon our beds like a roly-poly collection of rolltastic things;
And we lay face up toward the ceiling, slaying monsters on our portable consoles.
But that my friends is when inspiration strikes!
That is the moment when I rise up from the covers,
When I take a marker pen in my hand and use it as a microphone.
When my neighbours wonder what the bloody hell is going on,
Because I've started singing songs by Nightwish.
And when I get bored of that, IRON SAVIOUR,
Heavy Metal never dies!

Because truly when I see you smile,
Though tears may not run down my face,
I would never in this world replace:
The feeling of a success, and the smile it might brings
When I entertain you, with the way I sing.

It is nerve-wracking, most days,
Knowing that when you wake up you may not make it home.
But still I am proud,
Because of what I have managed to achieve.
And tonight; I hope that you're proud of me,
Because I'm sending a hundred of my boys home.
I just wish that I was joining them this time...

Whilst the shadows dance with expectant glee!
You may forget what you have done,
But you will never be innocent...

After having found paper, you and Loki went up to the training room, which was currently empty. "I want you to try drawing it again, this time with less detail," Loki said as he held a ruby red rose. You looked up at him, as you were seated on the floor, before taking the rose from his outstretched hand. You glanced at it for a few moments before beginning to draw it, trying to work as quickly as possible.

For a Monday morning, the hospitals were swarming with the wounded. Less than ten hours after the quake, as the sun was just beginning to rise, initial reports were already being broadcasted nationwide. Dozens dead, hundreds injured and many more unaccounted for.
Every off duty officer, nurse, doctor, and medic had been called in. The army was already making its presence known, and the members of the Justice League were seen helping throughout the earthquake ravaged Gotham City.
Yet one emerald clad hero stood on the roof top overlooking the organized chaos that was Gotham City General Hospital.
"Any sign of him?"
Artemis dropped the binoculars from her face and turned as the older boy approached her. She blinked and looked back at the building below, shaking her head when Roy stopped beside her. "Wally's checking out the hospital across town."

METROPOLIS (DAILY PLANET) – At 1:34am local time, (9:34am GMT), Gotham City, New Jersey, was reminded of the Fault Line beneath its city. A huge earthquake, which measured 8.4 on the Richter scale, lasted 84 seconds and has killed more than 200 people.
With more than 100,000 injured and missing, and early estimates placing the damage at nearly $450 Million, the death toll is expected to rise as rescuers continue to pull bodies from collapsed buildings.
Gotham City Emergency Services are already stretched to the limit, and volunteers from other cities are finding entrance into the disaster area near impossible. The quake has resulted in the shutdown of both power plants, closing the airport which is otherwise undamaged. Due to the severe damage to hospitals and clinics, doctors are having to perform surgery in the open air.

The metal forced the air from his lungs as he was dropped. A heavily booted foot shoved against his back and he was suddenly sliding, his body twisting and rolling uncontrollably. There was nothing for his bare feet to grip to slow his descent and his cry of pain echoing close around him as an exposed rivet gouged into his calf. With his hands bound behind his back there was no way he could brace him as his uncontrolled descent came to an abrupt halt when his shoulder slammed painfully into the bottom of the pit Dick Grayson now found himself at the bottom of.
He groaned at the flare of pain, and looked back up the way he had fallen. Corrugated metal sides surrounded him and the thick ripple-like surface pressed into his back. Half of a large metal door was swinging into place twenty feet over his head and beyond that he could several feet of soil and stone above that.

Loki didn’t seem jumping to get going either, which was sort of understandable.

As much as Loki deserved such severe punishment, Thor was not sure he could condemn his brother. They may not have shared common blood, but they were still brothers.
With a sigh Thor rubbed his forehead. He had made his choice. As king, he must be able to make a decision for the good of the realm, not to ease his sentimental heart.

What he had said to Loki was true – he would not kill an innocent child. But what could be defined as “innocent”? That was a question that no one could truly answer.

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.

Sif gave a sigh as she stared out at all the land before them. “How far away are they?” she asked, glancing at Loki, who stood next to her, looking, watching – searching. He kept silent as he searched - his magic feeling for any signs of life of another master of magic.

Sif followed after him closely. Loki seemed more determined than ever, and much angrier than his usual self. “What is it?” she inquired.

“And this child – Caedra, you said her name was – she cares for Loki?"

The morning had started with Caedra waking him in good time to have breakfast before the little girl was insisting on going outside before her lessons began. For roughly the past two weeks, Loki had been teaching his daughter to read, and while she loved it and was learning quickly, she was still quite energetic and didn’t like spending the whole morning within one room or another in the palace. She loved to run about and see as much as she could. It didn’t matter if she ran the same path every single day, she loved it all the same. She had been living under Loki’s care long enough to become familiar with most of the halls and corridors around the palace, but Caedra was still not completely used to it being her home. She was always excited to wake up and find herself in her own chambers, and knowing that her father was nearby.

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…

60s Batman - Robin Flu Take 01A warm bowl of soup was placed down on the bedside table, the room was usually the master bed room, and used only when the never ending pursuit of crime was tired out, it was Bruce Wayne's bed room. However, for the past week it had been the sick room, for his ward had fallen ill to the influnenza. The giant bed had seen many wild nights, none to wild because Dick's Aunt would have scolded them, pillow fights, homework study sessions, everything a young lad could want when Dick was a child and now like every winter it was seeing another case of the flu.60s Batman - Robin Flu Take 01 in Drama More Like This

Pippin, weve got to get some sleep, lets go. Merry said softly in his cousins ear. Their hands were still intertwined from earlier, so tightly bound that Merry was afraid his cousin was going to have cramps later.
Pippin just looked up at Merry green eyes filling with tears again. I just cant leave him, Mer. He never left me when I was ill.
Just an hour ago, Elrond had attempted for the third time to get the shard out of Frodos shoulder. Merry hadnt wanted to expose Pippin to this but the youngster had begged vowing to sneak in anyway. He then decided it was just safer if Pippin was there beside him so he could keep him safe. Merry leaned forward placing a kiss on his cousins lips before standing and pulling Pippin up with him.

The day was over - his feet were off, ears were gone and hair was back to normal. The sun was setting outside and he could see the purplish clouds surrounding it from his trailer window. As soon as his makeup girl left he fumbled out of his costume and pulled on some jeans and a t-shirt. Running a hand through his hair, he started to dig for his cell phone.
Pulling it out, he turned it on and stared at the screen.
No Messages. Not even one.
Was Dom enjoying his time without him? Was this God's way of telling him that they were over or not meant to be? His legs went numb and he couldnt stand any longer. He sat down on the edge of the makeup chair and just stared down at the phone as if expecting it to ring any moment.
That moment never came. He took a deep breath, told himself he was being stupid and just dialed Dom's number. He let it continue ringing, hoping to get something, anything but voice mail. He knew Dom kept his volume up and would run

At the house Frodo and Sam wearily walked up to it. It wasn't a big house, just a small cottage. But a light was on inside. Someone must be there. Frodo felt his heart take a leap in excitement. Climbing up the stairs he decided a human must live here. The stairs were huge and old. They creaked when someone walked on them, even the slightest step.
Sam knocked on the door and then stepped back. A few seconds later a human female opened the door. She had long red hair with brown eyes. She smiled, "Can I help you? Oh." She looked surprised. "Kevin, quick."
A man appeared behind her dressed in a brown tunic and navy pants. He had brown hair that went to his shoulders with dark blue eyes. "Yes? Oh. Hobbits."
"Sir, can you please help us?" Frodo asked nervously, "My cousin is dreadfully ill. He needs a bed to sleep in." He felt kind of bad for asking to use a room that wasn't his own but Pippin needed sleep. In a warm bed, not a wet bed roll.

I think snow is fun, just not when we are sitting out in it. Merry responded just as chilled. His mind kept wanting to shout out loud that Hobbits werent made for cold weather, but he knew no one would care what he said. Everyone was just as cold as they were and it wasnt anyones fault persay, they had to come this way. He opened his cloak and felt Pippin snuggle even closer, he felt Pippin burying his cold face into the golden waist-coat.

A strange heat had invaded his dreams causing him to roll away from the source. He was sweating and couldn't figure out why. Typically he was always cold, always chilled and he could never ever truly get warm. His eyes opened and he sat up bleary eyed. "Merry?"
Merry didn't awaken, more or even acknowledge that he'd heard Pippin's voice. Pippin bent down and knew right away that something was wrong when he touched Merry's arm. Fear gripped his heart and the young hobbit lad jumped out of the bed and ran down the hallway into Frodo's room.
"Frodo, Frodo wake up, oh please wake up!" Frodo was awakened out of his deep sleep by someone shaking him rather hard.
"Go back to bed, Pippin." He groaned trying to reach out and grab the hands that wouldn't let go. "It's too early."
"But it's Merry, Frodo." Pippin stopped shaking and bit his lip trying to contain his feelings, he couldn't cry no matter how scared he was, Merry needed him.

"You are NEVER too old to have stuffed animals." The other man informed him, bending down to retrieve one of the lifeless carcasses of the so-called bears. It hung limp in the air staring at him, just above the animal he saw Dom still giving him the puppy-dog look. "You should get one to!"

The medicine he'd been forced to take was working quite quickly. He was beginning to feel sleepy, and drowsily scooted down to a lying position with his head in Dom's lap. He felt Dom lift his arm and let Billy curl closer before letting his arm rest down again, this time on Billy's chest.
The conversation he'd only been partly participating in now converged into a pile of voices that he could no longer distinguish between. He heard what he thought was the sound of Dom's voice and slightly tilted his head, trying to see. Dom glanced down at him with a worried expression that turned soo

His mother Esmeralda chuckled a few times but was still firm. "I don't care Meriadoc. It will be a good skill to learn." She led him into her sewing room and pulled out different colored yarns.
"What about the lasses? Shouldn't they be doing this?"
"Meriadoc, they already know how to knit. Now sit down, I am not going to have a child of mine not know how to knit."

In the middle of the night Merry was woken up by whimpers coming from Pippin. Worried, he sat up slightly noticing that Pippins arms were still wrapped tightly around his neck. The arms were warm, a sleepy warm that made Merry want to go back to asleep, afraid of what was wrong with his cousin kept him awake however. He lay back down quietly soothing Pippins noises from being disturbed with a quick kiss on the pale forehead before nuzzling him there as well. Shh, go back to sleep, darling. Im here.
The whimpering came again and this time he watched Pippins eyes clench tightly. Merrys eyes narrowed and he hugged Pippin closer to him, the youngster relaxed slowly but his body was still tense. Merrys brain finally registered that the heat coming from Pippin wasnt natural, his cousin had fallen ill. Should he go get Strider? Even if he wanted to he couldnt get up without waking Pippin from his sleep. The fire continued to c

You write your suicide note... And you set it on the table.
You take your razor, your silver, two inch razor. And you start to slide it across your wrist. You barely feel a thing. After all, the pain of life is more than the pain of the blade.
And you take that belt you never wore, the one that was too tight, the one you starved yourself to fit into. And you wrap it once, twice around your neck... and you pull it tight.
Barely breathing, you put the ends of the belt on something to hold you up.
Something to strangle you.
Something to kill you.
And you die.
And that's the end, right?
So, so wrong.
