Robin and Cyborg hovered about the scene, noting the several huge craters in the park.
"It looks like one heck of a fight," Cyborg commented.
Robin remained silent as his eyes scanned over the craters. It didn't take him another second to recognize these craters were the aftermath of a starbolt. He knew that Starfire never had a hard time landing a starbolt on her enemies. She was always dead-on-sight, unless they were moving at the speed of light. The many craters told him her enemy was someone fast. The amount of craters also told him that the villain who had attacked her must have also had the ability to fly. That was another flaw Starfire had difficulty with during training.
Silently, the masked hero continued walking and observing the craters.
"Yo, Rob! You oughtta see this!" Cyborg hollered.
Robin appeared beside Cyborg within seconds. His eyes widened at the body imprinted on the ground before them.
"Definitely Starfire's body," Cyborg said quietly.

"How'd ya get your hands on this game?!" asked a surprise Cyborg. He clutched Mega Monkeys 6 in his hands as if it were the legendary holy grail.
"I ran straight to the video game shop the moment it opened. Dude, you have no idea how long it took until I actually bought it from that super long line!" Beast Boy exasperated.
"You know you could have pre-ordered it, B. Saves a lot of time and guaranteed that you'll have one while everyone else has to fight for the last ones in stock," Cyborg noted.
Beast Boy's proud smile instantly deflated into an embarrassed look. His eyes looked at a random object in the room while his lips formed a small, puckered look. "I knew that "
"Uh-huh " Cyborg smirked.
"Hey, well we could have played the game yesterday if someone wasn't hogging the TV!"

Smoke emitted from the tower. There were screams and cries, but there would be no one who could help them.
Her dark, night hair danced with the flames surrounding the throne room. She looked at the bronze throne with a picture in her right hand. She smiled mischievously and sat on it.
The once-beautiful platinum room was now a dull, sheen-less silver color. The two red velvet curtains hung behind the throne on either side. The right was shredded to pieces as if a cat had clawed it down. The left was set a flame, slowly being engulfed with fire, as of the rest of the room.
The black haired princess propped her left elbow on the throne's once-golden arms and idly looked at the smiling girl in the picture. She debated whether she should crush it or drop it on the floor, to let the flames swallow it up into dark crumbs of ashes. But another idea struck her. She looked at the picture with a bitter look on her face and smiled.
"This time, we'll be even," the dark princess said.

She placed the basket on the right corner, near her head, and lied on the blanket. Her two arms laid folded over the other, behind her head. The alien princess closed her eyes as she enjoyed the day. Without intentions, she had drifted into a nap.
It was hot. The weather had suddenly transformed into a suffocating, humid atmosphere. There were cries and shouts all mangled together, creating unintelligible, slurred words.
Starfire squinted, but no matter how much she tried, she was always greeted by a hazy mirage of purples, reds, and oranges.
The screams continued as well as the overwhelming heat.
Soon the slurred cries became understandable to her ears. They were mixtures of both m

Starfire held a picture in her hand of her, Raven, Robin, Beast Boy, and a random teenage boy. Apparently, Cyborg believed that it would be funny to catch a shot of a jealous Robin telling the boy to back off.
Starfire giggled as she reminisced the day.
"Hey you're um Starfire, right?" a boy with brown hair and eyes asked.
"Yes, hello," she greeted.
"Oh, that's so cool! Starfire, I'm such a big fan of yours! You're an amazing fighter, not to mention, hot!" he complimented.
"I do not believe my temperature has increased," she answered as she checked her forehead.
"Good one," he chuckled, "I mean hot as in attractive."

It was but a dark void. Countless, disorienting days spent in darkness for who knows how long. She did not fear it like any other child did but befriended it, familiarized in it. It was no wonder she had such hauntingly exquisite alabaster skin--or at least what these strangers said when they pulled her out.
She didn't cry when they left her all alone because their eyes reflected a long, heart wrenching expression when it was scheduled that she'd be put back, hidden from the world. But they always left her a kiss to the forehead before repeating the same words that helped her move through an endless void. A forgotten mantra that echoed in her unconscious realm of fantasies.

"Yeah, Star?" Robin replied.
"Do you like to fly?"
"It's every kid's dream to achieve in life," he grinned.
Starfire flew a couple feet in the air and turned back to offer her hand towards him. Robin was hesitant, he knew he'd be in a lot of trouble later, but his selfishness pushed him to go against Superman's orders. But at least I'm still with her, so I'm not in that much trouble.
"What is wrong, Robin?" Starfire asked. She had a feeling that he was having the second thoughts.

Ludwig's eyes flickered open and his cheeks burned when he noticed he was atop his ally.

It had been three, maybe four days, and there had been no sign of Ludwig or his brother. Germouser had figured Gilbert would forget about him, and had been conserving his food. It was only a matter of time before he would have to venture outside to hunt for small animals. The sun was shining, so Germouser wandered into the kitchen and hopped onto the counter, then climbed into

The next morning the two cats were awakened by the sound of someone rather obnoxious coming into the house.
"Kesesesese! The awesomely awesome Gilbert has arrived! West! I'm stealing some of your beer!" It was Ludwig's older brother Gilbert, who represented the former nation, Prussia. Germouser sighed. Itabby climbed out of the bed and went to investigate. She hadn't been around Gilbert before, so she didn't know who it was. Germouser followed closely behind her.
Gilbert was wandering around the house, a beer in his hand, looking for his younger brother. "West? Hey bruder, are you home? We-WOAH!" The albino man nearly tripped over Itabby as the tan cat came wandering into the room. Germouser, being afraid that Gilbert had hurt her, hissed at the albino for doing so. "Holy cats!" Gilbert looked down at Germouser. "Germouser, where's West?" Germouser looked up at the albino German and blinked. Itabby went to the gray cat's side and meowed. Prussia gave Itabby a

"I'm not surprised," Sherry says conversationally, addressing Jake at breakfast and ignoring the way his foot is bumping against hers from underneath the table. "He blacked out just after the explosion, so it's understandable that he'd be worried. It took them a while to convince him of where he was. For the first few minutes, the arm hurt so badly that he was convinced he'd been sent to hell. Can you imagine waking up like that?"
Jake's toes slide up her ankle; she kicks at his foot in irritation. "Are you even listening to me?"
"Huh?" says Jake, and she gives up.
The hospital staff has Chris's phone number; he doesn't remember leaving it with them, but he figures Sherry arranged it. They call him the day after Piers wakes up and that's how he finds out.
He thinks about going but he doesn't remember which highway exit Sherry took when they visited last, so he stays at home. He thinks about cleaning up but he d

A piece of glass drops onto the plate, staining the area around it with red. Sherry doesn’t even pause, holding the tweezers deliberately and pressing her fingers gently against his arm. The rubber gloves are cold against his skin and the metal of the tweezers are colder.
“It’s all right,” she says for the tenth time.
Chris winces as she finds and removes another glass shard. “Jeeze,” he mutters. “You’re sure calm about all of this.”
She cracks a small smile at that, her eyes brightening. “Chris, I live with Jake. He can’t keep himself out of trouble for three days.”
Chris feels disappointment well up inside of him. “He’s still working as a mercenary, then? I…I’d kinda hoped the kid had given it up.”
Sherry shakes her head. “That’s not what I meant,” she says apologetically, letting out a soft laugh. &

Chris is sitting at the motel room’s desk, chin tucked against his chest, arms folded up tight under his armpits, gazing distractedly at the wall.
“Chris?” Jake asks, but he doesn’t get a response and he steps forward, irritated. “Hey, man- snap out of it. I went back to Sherry’s but she wasn’t there- I dunno where she could’ve gone off to but we gotta find her, okay? We can fix it, get her to drop the hunt, maybe.”
Chris doesn’t say anything. Doesn’t even move.
“Hey.” Jake takes another step towards him. “Hey, I’m talking to you. You gotta get on board with me here now, or you’re gonna be in deeper shit than you already-”
But he cuts himself off there, looking around suddenly. “Hey. Chris- where’s Nivans?”
Chris doesn’t budge.
“Chris. Where the hell is Nivans?”
Always this awesome“Is he always this awesome?” Finn asks.Always this awesome in General Fiction More Like This
It’s understandable, of course. The kid’s a rookie and it’s his first time with the crew so it’s understandable that he’s completely taken with Chris. They all are, at first.
Piers had been, himself.
He remembers how he wouldn’t shut up, how he’d prattle on about his favorite sniping positions and the best way to polish a gun. Like Chris didn’t already know, with all his years in the service.
He’d beamed the way Finn did when Chris had clapped a hand on his shoulder, boosting his confidence with the short pep talks he was so fond of. “Just do what you’re best at, all right? Don’t worry about a single thing- you’re ready for this. Always remember that we’ve got your back.
The team’s got your back, Piers.”
“Is he always this awesome?” Finn asks, and Piers stares at him.

It has to be her. Sherry knows Claire and Claire is Chris’s sister and Leon says that Chris will respond best in the most comfortable situation possible and she’s going and she volunteered, damn it, so why does she feel so uncertain?
She glances at the hallway mirror as she tugs her fingers into her gloves. Her face is paler than usual and she narrows her eyes at her reflection, her mouth narrowing in what is meant to be a hard, determined line.
It looks more like a grimace.
“You’re going,” she tells herself loudly, turning face the mirror fully and putting her hands on her hips. “It’s decided; you’re going.”
She hears his chuckle from the other room, soft and mocking. He clicks the door open and slouches around the corner, grinning at her.
“Having second thoughts?”
Her bottom lip sticks out when she's irritated and it's sticking out now. “Jake Muller, you shut your mouth.”

Chris doesn't stay.
How could he, with the monitor recording every faltering heartbeat and the nurses gathered up by the door watching them and Piers' fingers clutching at Chris's hand, telling him it's okay, it's okay, it's okay-
Someone stronger would've stayed. Would've held his hand until the light went out of his eyes and the monitor flatlined. Piers would've stayed, if it had been the other way around.
Chris isn't Piers. And when Piers drifts off, closes his eyes and succumbs to sleep, Chris gets up and leaves.
Sherry ducks her head, shies away when Chris walks towards her. But Chris pauses and stops a few feet away, looking her straight in the eyes.
"Thank you," he croaks.
She looks surprised, then alarmed, panicked. Like he's supposed to yell- or hit her, or...something. Like she wants him to yell- like it'd be better that way.

“On- on the inside? You’re acting like this is some kind of infiltration mission-”
“It is,” Jill says impatiently. “Come on, Chris, you know better than that. Let’s go. Put the pieces together.”
And he does.
The blood sample. The timing of Jill’s phone call and the date that they’d set. The fact that they’d been at the restaurant for an hour and they still hadn’t ordered anything other than the two beers. It was a mission- separating them, getting Chris alone like this. It was a mission-
And the intended target was Piers.

Sherry faces Chris, hands on her hips. “I want Piers to move in with you.”
Chris shakes his head, dizzyingly fast. “Uh-uh. No. I- I can’t.”
“Why?” she asks. “You think you won’t be able to take care of him? Because you know better than anyone how stubborn he is- he’ll try to do everything by himself, even if you offer otherwise.”
“I’m not a doctor,” he says.
“Neither am I,” Sherry soothes. “You don’t have to be anything other than yourself, Chris. All I’m asking is for you to be his friend.”
The ex-Captain laughs harshly. “I doubt he wants me to be his friend, Sherry. You know the way he reacted back at the hospital.”
But she also knows the way he reacts when he hears Chris’s voice from over the phone, and the way his face contorts when he realizes that Chris has only called to talk to Sherry.

There’s no answer. Nothing but the squeal of a second set of tires as another car pulls up next to Chris’s truck. Jake slides out of the front seat, expression set.
“Jake.” Chris had called him, not knowing who else to go to, and had managed to explain everything with frantic, rushed fragments of sentences and shaky words. He’d been relieved to find that Jake hadn’t been involved in the scheme- Sherry hadn’t ever talked about it, thank god. “Thanks for coming,” he says.

Oh, no. Sherry's stomach clenches. "What's the matter? Is he okay?"

"What?" Sherry stands on her tip-toes and leans over the counter, gripping it tightly. "That can't be; I thought the doctor said that they'd stopped the virus."
Sherry whirls around to see the doctor, hands shoved into her lab coat pockets and her expression sympathetic. "Especially in cases like these," she finishes. "You of all people should know that, Ms. Birkin."
She would bristle if she was a less collected woman, but Sherry holds her ground, arms crossed and tone sharp. "You said everything was fine. You said he was a go."

Look what the cat dragged in - PrologueUnbelievably, I had survived almost four days without food. Despite the pride of a man fervently pulsing within my chest, I only had one source of food out here on these streets. My only option for surviving was to scavenge through the scattered garbage bins of the slums. I had to suck it up, and just do it. I had to find a meal in much the same way a stray cat had to. But repulsively, the garbage dumpsters provided little to eat, and no matter how much willpower I put into forcing myself to eat the shit inside there, I vomited most of the scum before it was halfway down my throat. I kept telling myself with stubborn growls, "If you don't eat this, you will die! Now eat!!!" but I could not convince the opposing reflexes of my body to do as I said.Look what the cat dragged in - Prologue in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
I realize now that the opposing force which I came to loathe was telling me something in defiance. It was saying, "Real food will come soon. Wait, be patient, save your energy." I was too deaf with hunger to hear it's calming words. Inside, I

I haven’t heard anyone call me by my real name in a long time. The flash of fear and confusion at hearing it yelled out across the entire shelter was quickly replaced by the recognition of her voice, and the comfort that she was the only one left who knew me by that name. I sent Mouse to find and bring back Harley, sending my pocket watch with her as proof of my presence.
Mouse is my mouse. Well, she’s a kid. But she’s my mouse. I found her around here recently after I’d escaped the cops’ surprise ambush. I walked in the shelter, buried under some foul scraps of clothes, and noticed her following me at a distance. Once I’d settled down and obtained a spot in the corner of the top floor, she settled in right beside me without a word.
I tried to scare her off by revealing my unmistakable attire and face paint, but her pants remained dry. She doesn’t know who the hell I am. She’s never seen me before. Has absolutely no clue who I am! The
Look what the cat dragged in - Chapter 1I didn't expect him to black out on me this rudely. "I thought we were in the middle of a conversation here, Twiggers." I turned my amused smirk upside-down and touched his face with my gloved hand, pulling open his closed eyelid with my thumb. His brown eyes didn't react. He didn't blink or wince or execute any reflex he was supposed to when something came close to his eyeball. He was out. Cold as a glacier. I rested my hand on the side of his neck as I pondered what to do with him next.Look what the cat dragged in - Chapter 1 in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
He was in bad shape. Signs of starvation were obvious as I looked closer at him. He had shadows under his eyes and his cheekbones weren't covered by as much flesh as they should be, not to mention the protruding bony elbows poking out of his malnutritioned arms. His skin was sickly pale when it was supposed to be a soft milk-chocolate shade. The poor thing was dying, if not already dead. But I could feel a faint pulse under my hand as his heart strived to pump blood up to his dehydrated brain. I frown

His anger and rage threatened to never cease.
In the prison of Hell, looking up at the sky,
His only soft feelings of hope began to die.
His soul rotted for years.
The inhumanity dried up any remaining tears.
A baby's cries erupted one night.
The sound was foreign and inspiring, as was the sight.
The broken man, his heart so charred,
Watched the baby grow up, his expression hard.
Hatred manifested for the mother, who brought the girl into this hell.
Didn't she know how many prisoners had tried to escape and fell?
How cruel was that mother, to bring that girl straight into death.
She'd never feel warmth and happiness on her breath.
Especially not after her mother was taken and killed.
In the commotion of the screaming struggle, the broken man's arms were filled.
He held the girl close and dashed away,
"I will protect you." She heard him say.
The guards weren't concerned with the abandoned five year old.
They had done what they'd been told.

The shoes that Arkham Asylum provided their inmates with were surprisingly good running shoes. The Joker laughed once in gratitude with a panting breath as he glanced down at the pair helping his feet propel themselves along the rocky shore of southern Gotham. The institute's sirens blared behind him, and his loyal girlfriend had to really shout to be heard over the wails of the cops' cars parked behind the chain link fence of the asylum's perimeter. "Where the hell are we going!?!?!"
With a small slip in his step, he laughed over his shoulder at her agile body following his lead. "To the sea!!!" Although his answer confused her, she was satisfied to know that he at least had an idea of a destination. When she broke him out of Arkham fifteen minutes ago, she was ready to pull him back out to the masked car she brought and parked in the parking lot. He turned out to be the one who pulled her, only in the opposite direction. The spotlights from the roof of Arkham we
Look what the cat dragged in - Chapter 5I stood up, half of my mind hard and certain and the other doubtful and in denial. That couldn't be her! But then again, she was the only female in the building. Oliver let a sigh breeze out of his nose as he said my name again. I chose not to hear him as another distant and short scream sent my nerves rippling in a fearful vibration. I stepped toward the door. I was not obeying the dumb human instinct of curiosity, I was responding to my inner conscience at the alarming sound of pain.Look what the cat dragged in - Chapter 5 in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
"Nigel. Go back to sleep." Xavier's voice barked. I couldn't believe they weren't hearing this! "Harley is screaming, can't you hear her!?" My voice was a fraction higher as a result of the tension in my throat, along with the rest of my body. I turned in the dark to face Xavier who was sitting up against the wall a few feet from Oliver. Even in the dark, I could make out the grim expression on his face.
"No. We can't." He emphasized with a hard glare.
I slowly came to understand why they claimed they di

"Damn Harl, you are one pathetic human being!" He laughed and ran a hand through his blonde hair. His voice was back to it's normal unique self.
"Joker?" She grinned, embarrassed and delighted. "How did you...!?"
He cleared his throat and smiled at her from the chair. If Harley didn't hate her restraints before, she sure hated them now!
"Joker, I'm so sorry, please" She started.
"Jesus, Harl, do you think I'm deaf? I know you're sorry, alright?" He rolled his eyes. She lowered her gaze submissively.
After looking at her for a little longer, he stood up. "Besides, that was almost a week ago. Let it go already."
"So you forgive me ?" She whispered, slightly confused.
"Now, I didn't say that." He shook his head and gave her that disappointed look. He suddenly sat down on the bed next to her and held her hand.
To The Sea (2/2)The ocean was suffocating Harley. It was more unbearable than having a pillow forced over her face, and she knew exactly how that felt. Every attempt to move her limbs and swim sent pain through her panicked muscles. Drowning was a slow death, but she suspected her suffering would be cut short on account of her terrified heart beating faster than it was ever supposed to beat. Her bursting fear alone could kill her.To The Sea (2/2) in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
The woman screamed in silence when her flowing hair was captured and yanked up. She felt the crisp night air welcoming her face back to the surface as she convulsed a gallon of liquid from her throat. The waverunner was slippery and provided little to grip on as it painfully bumped against her back. With another yank, Joker pulled her on board and jumped his hand's iron grip to her bicep. She reached up and latched onto his shirt to pull herself on the seat, wincing at the stinging in her scalp and the fire in her drenched lungs. He let her go once she was on board, placing
Little Nivansfield 01"Captain?" Piers looked up at him, frowning at the unexpected visit to his room. He seemed to be his usual self, leaning against the side of the door frame like there was nothing to worry about. And Chris might have believed it if it weren't for the fact that the young sniper's trigger finger kept twitching as if ready to take down a target.Little Nivansfield 01 in Romance More Like This
"Is there something you need to tell me?" Chris lifted his brow staring at the younger male. Why was here in front of his A.T.L.'s door giving his second a scrutinizing look? Simple. He'd received enough complaints from others in the dorm saying that they could hear what sounded like barking coming from the room. As the captain it was his responsibility to investigate the cause of the noise which meant having to confront the sniper about the situation whether he wanted to or not.
"Not that I'm aware of." Piers stood up straight letting the door swing open wider as he turned around starting to walk back into the room with a twist to his walk that sh

"…What is he doing here?"
"Staying the night," Leon said giving a smirk just because he knew it would piss Piers off. Chris knew he was doing it on purpose. He knew Leon distinguished that Piers wasn't all that fond of him. Chris was only doing this because he was following Ada's advice about letting Leon stay. Though he told Piers and Leon was for added protection for the three of them, the real reason he invited Leon over was to test out a theory about Piers's sleeping habit. He wanted to know if Piers would still sneak into his bed at night if there was another warm body, a clo

Chris couldn't lie about it. He'd been hoping to be still snuggled up against the Semi when he woke up the next morning and given the chance to really look at the young male. So he was a little upset to find the other missing from the warm bed. The scent of bacon and pancakes was enough of a warning to let him know where the other was as he slowly pushed himself out of the bed grumbling. Only taking a

Four months have passed since he'd started dating Piers. Chris could admit to himself that he was proud of how well things were going between them. The guest room that Piers stayed in looked strangely similar to how his room had looked back in the barracks. He didn't have anything personal except for that one particular green scarf he seemed to love keeping on himself and the few casual clothes he had. It didn't mean he didn't keep a few doggy toys around for Nivansfield to play with.
They had a four day weekend this week thanks to the good ole holiday of Easter coming up that Sunday. It'd be the perfect time to spend some time with

He wasn't even startled this time when he woke up to find the Semi snuggled up against him. Confused? Yeah. But not startled. Once again the Semi was curled up beside him, sleeping away as if it were just the most natural thing to do. Was he still cold? Maybe the heater was broken? Maybe the blankets just didn't add up to the electric type that Chris didn't own. He frowned easing himself carefully out of the bed to not wake his charge as he headed down to the guest room.
Nope. The heater was working, at full blast too. The room felt like a sauna from how hot it was inside. If the Semi wasn't cold, then why did he still sneak into Chris's bed? May

"Be nice," Chris said looking back at Leon and glaring. They were standing in front of his door thanks to his promise that he'd let Leon meet the Semi. To be honest, he wasn't even sure if Piers was even still here. The kid could have left by now, disappeared completely out of Chris's life. Even if they'd only know each other for a day, the thought wasn't something Chris wanted to think about. He actually liked Piers. The kid amused him in a way he hadn't felt in a long time, especially waking up to the sight of the other snuggling against him this morning. "The kid's already been through a lot."
"Don't worry so much," Leon said sighing behind him and shrugging his shoulders. "I'm

This whole waking up cause something's off thing was really starting to be a regular for Chris. Three days in a two day period seemed more than a little uncommon to him. First it had been waking up to find a bleeding Semi snuggling in his warm bed. The second was the time he'd jolted awake while falling asleep in the chair watching over the injured Semi. And now, this time….
Chris hadn't moved yet as he stared down at Piers snuggled up against him. It was obvious he must have snuck into his bed during the night because he sure hadn't been there when Chris first went

What woke Chris up wasn't any kind of threat. He was jolted out of the fear of falling out of the chair. Grumbling, he rubbed at his sore neck trying to remember why he was in the guest room of his house. When he looked up at the bed, he remembered it instantly. Right, Piers the puppy boy. Granted the kid was still lying down, hazel eyes were intensely staring at him. It made Chris swallow slightly and glance away. Ok, so he wasn't going to lie and say Piers wasn't attractive. All Semi tended to be. It was why a lot of the Semi would get kidnapped and sold as slaves. That was the suspicion Chris had about Piers anyway.

"These smell delicious," Piers said turning his eyes to Chris. They were taking a break from teaching Piers how to play the game. It made no sense to start up a real game until after they'd gotten to enjoy the cookies Chris made. And the fact that Piers gave him a compliment about them made his chest beat just a little faster.

Chris was quiet on the ride home. He didn't approve of HQ's actions to supersede his decision and pull Piers into the dangerous line of fire even if Piers had been a great asset to the mission. Did they know how much danger they put him in, a Semi? He was a target, one the enemy probably had their eyes set on. Sure, Chris was planning on having Piers join Alpha Team. That didn't mean he wanted it done under his nose or for Piers to be brought out into the field on his first day without the proper training. All Alpha Team members went through the basics to make sure they were cut for being on the team. Piers couldn't e
