Robin stood in his room, staring out the window. He had a lot on his mind, which wasn't unusual. But with a serious decline in criminal activity after defeating the Brotherhood, it wasn't crime and villains he had on his mind. It was one of his teammates.
Thinking about her again, he looked up at the moon, as his radio began to play.
-Well I took a walk around the world to ease my troubled mind
I left my body lying somewhere in the sands of time-
He thought back to when he had left Gotham and came to Jump. He had had it with Batman, and had decided to go off on his own. Go solo. Before he'd been in Jump a single day, he had a team.
-But I watched the world float to the dark side of the moon-
After everything they'd been through, they were all closer than ever.
-I feel there is nothing I can do, yeah-
Yet still, that kiss when they first met...it would never leave his mind.
-I watched the world floa

Beast Boy wandered through the streets of Jump City, riding his moped. It had been his birthday present last year from Captain America, too big to brign into the party room. He'd gotten it when they had left. It had certainly made travel easier for him and Raven.
They were wandering the city seperately. Raven's idea. She said it would make things go faster. He wasn't so sure about that, but he wasn't going to argue with her.
Suddenly he heard a commotion nearby. Sounded like some kind of fight. Glancing in the direction, he saw smoke rising. SUddenly his blood went cold.
Raven was that way.
Turning his moped, he hit the turbo. As he approached, he saw who he recognized as Robin duking it out with some kind of alien chick. He knew Robin was a hero, so not the threat. He wouldn't normally have gotten involved, but Raven was nearby. SH

Cyborg climbed the side of the mountain slowly, glancing often at the scenery. Something was strange about this place, but it was so pleasant. There was nothing to fight, no bad guys to chase...just sun, surf, sand...and the girls.
As he thought that, he crested a rise and saw Bumblbee and Jinx, sunbathing. Bumblebee was wearing a black and yellow stripe bikini that flattered her figure. Jinx was wearing a rather skimpy strapless two piece in her preferred dark purple.
*Woah,* Cyborg thought. *Jinx is...bigger than she looks. She must bind herself. And Bumblbee...damn!* He shook his head. *What am I thinking?* He called out to them. "Hey girls! You okay up here?"
Jinx looked up. "Hey tin man! COme to join us?"
Bumblebee smiled. "Yeah, come on Sparky! Get some sun, it'll be good for you!"

Beast Boy started out racing across the sand, but as he passed the empty expanse, he began to slow down. He glanced around at the sun, surf, sand, and general air of tropical paradise of the island. THe sand squelched between his bare toes as dividing impulses warred within him. On the one hand, he really wanted to just enjoy this ultimate vacation. But on the other hand, something inside was fidgety, edgy, like an animal in a cage.
Animal in a cage...that's what was going on. His human side was perfectly comfortable here, but the animal in him, his instincts, were restless. THere was something going on here, and it was more than just a paradise.
"This place is too good to be true," he muttered under his breath, kicking a rock.
"And when did you get so serious?"
He spun, instinctively going into a crouch...and then went limp as his jaw dropped.
There in what would almost be called natural glory...stoo

As the three groups got together at the park, some surprised glances were exchanged at the make up of the assembled...civilians. Finding a quiet area of the park with a few benches, everyone sat down, positioning a variety of baby strollers, carriers, and leashes.
Mas and Menos were in a curiously constructed double stroller that allowed them to see each other at all times, but not touch. Bumblebee, Argent, and Starfire were all on leashes, as they had a tendency to want to fly away. Jade was holding Bumblebee's leash, while Roy was holding Aqualad. Jennifer held Argent's leash, and had Herald in her lap. Victor held Hot Spot. Rachel held Starfire's leash, and baby Robin, Timmy, and Teether were allowed to wander under Melvin's watchful gaze.
"Okay, everyone," Garfield said, taking charge. "What do we know about what's happening so far?"
Roy spoke up. "Well, all I've been able to deter

Xavier rubbed the bridge of his nose. This was beginning to get tiresome.
"Eric, she entrusted me with her child, and I promised to take care of her. Of course I filed the adoption papers."
Eric Magnus glared down at his friend. "That's not what I mean, Charles, and you know it. Our concern is mutants, and keeping them safe long enough so they can master their abilities and protect themselves."
"And what kind of lesson do I teach these children if I turn my back on a helpless child simply because she is not one of us?" Charles finally snapped.
From the crib nearby, slight fussing could be heard. Charles wheeled over to the crib and reached in, stroking the pale sknned, purple haired infant inside. She quieted.
"Now please, Eric, let's not fight about this anymore. It's upsetting all of us, and the students."
The school had started in the past few weeks. Already, se

Raven sat in the woods, deep in meditation. To anyone unaware of how her powers worked, they might think she was asleep, as she was on the ground, breathing shallowly and not moving. However, sleep was the farthest thing from what was really happening. On the astral plane, she waged war.
Xavier had followed Hank's advice, and started teaching Raven how to engage in psychic warfare. She was a very quick study. It wasn't long before every 'fair fight' had him on the defensive within moments. While he had more experience and knew more ways to strike, she was far quicker than he, and her mind worked in ways he couldn't conceive of. And then there were her demon traits, too.
He quickly realized she could outfight him when prepared, so he instituted a new training method. He would strike at her anywhere, anytime, without warning. She would have to be on guard at all times, ready to

Raven and Beast Boy slowly flew back to the Tower. Beast Boy glanced over at Raven as they rode her black energy disc. "Come on," he said beseechingly, "you gotta admit, that was actually fun, and nothing terrible happened."
Raven glanced at him and sighed. "Okay, I admit...it was fun. You surprised me, Gar. I never took you for a theater buff."
He shrugged. "There's a lot you don't know about me, Raven. But if you'll give me a chance, I'll be glad to show you." There wasn't anything suggestive in the way he said it. He was being sincere.
She sighed. "I'll sleep on it, okay?"
He nodded. "Okay!" He was happy with this. He had been expecting a flat no. He actually had a chance.
They landed at the enterance of the Tower. When they opened the door, and their communicators went off.

The Titans had returned to their various towers, although Jinx had returned with the main Titans to Jump City. She'd said there were things she had to work out.
Cyborg was in the garage, working on various projects. Jinx came in to talk to him. "Tin Man? You okay?"
The other Titans had asked him this. He'd told them he was okay, and they'd let it go. Somehow, he felt he owed Jinx more. "...no, I'm not okay."
"...wanna talk about it?"
He was silent for a long time. "...Jinx, how much do you know about my...makeup?"

Cyborg nodded. "It's wierd, though. As soon as we landed, I lost the signal. SHe's here somewhere, but I don't know where."

If everyone's okay with it, we could play again.” Orihime smiled hopefully. “It seemed like the last group enjoyed themselves.” Not waiting on anyone to answer, she grabbed the duffel bag and walked directly to you. “You can pick this time.”
“O-oh, okay. Thank you.” Nervous and a bit apprehensively, you placed your hand inside the bag and grabbed an item. It was a small stuffed strawberry. It was even lightly scented.
“That's Ichigo's item.” Orihime ran up to Ichigo and gently tugged him from his seat. He didn't budge an inch. “Come on, it's your turn. Don't leave her standing over there looking all confused and pathetic like that.

Walking as quietly as you could, you did your best to go unnoticed until only inches away from the figure. “Hello there Armin, what are you doing out so late?

In his sixteen years of life, Nate Richards was never romantically involved. Being a "geek" and an introverted one at that, he never had any luck with the opposite ex. For similar reasons, he never had much luck with his own gender, either, having very few friends and being constantly bullied.

"I'll... come back later." The teen managed finally and closed the door behind him despite Wanda's insistence he stayed so they could talk about it. Both sides knew that was not necessarily for the best, however, and so Billy made his way to where he left his own boyfriend prior. Teddy looked up with mild interest at first, curious as t

The helmet dropped to the metal floor, making a loud sound that drew too much attention. The young pilot held onto the railing with one hand, the other palming his face. This wasn't quite what Billy had in mind when he was assigned a co-pilot, not in the least.
"They said our neural-handshake was the best they've seen in a good while." Aforementioned co-pilot practically purred and sounded quite smug while he was at it.
"Does this make us soulmates?"
Loki didn't rub Billy the wrong way, not at first. He had his eccentric antics but they looked out for each other out of mutual interest.

"I already told you, I don't know!” The woman argued again for what seemed like the billionth time that month. “We don't keep in touch regularly, I have no idea where he went!”
The detective didn't seem impressed, but figured that if she claimed she didn't know, then she probably didn't. They bothered her often enough to give her ample motive to tell the truth, just like they did her ex-husband.
"You have my number, ma'am. He shows up, contacts you-"
"Spare me, I know the drill."
Basically kicked out of the apartment, the detective took his partner and they made their way outside. They exchanged words of frustration, never once noticing the teenaged boy sitting across the street from them at the bus stop. There was nothing suspicious about him, from his mundane clothes to even the cap that kept his hair from sight. Buses came and went but he never boarded a single one, waiting for a different line -

Time-Frame: Somewhere between ACC and the new run of YA
Summary: It’ll be the first birthday Wanda gets to celebrate for her boys since she got back. The problem is - what to get them?
For a moment in time, Pietro Maximoff couldn't be happier or prouder. He was minding his own business when his beloved sister came to him for help- to him! Even when she had her Avengers to seek counsel from! Of course, he was only too happy to be of service, and so he agreed to oblige, whatever she would ask for. Wanda's relief betrayed little of what was to come.
"You've had experience with teenagers in the academy, didn't you? Then you probably know..."
The mere thought that his time as a glorified babysitter could actually be of use to him in this manner was something Pietro never dared imagine. However, his happiness was quite short-lived as his sister finished the question, eyes wid

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.

She couldn't ignore the presence, thus transported to her room. Within seconds, she had reached her room only to be greeted by an open book left on the floor.
Raven glanced at the page that had been activated. She sighed with relief as she noticed that it was a transformation spell, but the problem was: who did it transform? If anything in her room, the team would be doomed to locate and keep the dangerous human-object under control.
Without a second thought, her powers infiltrated the tower in search of extra presence. Raven came to acknowledge two unwanted visitors located inside Starfire's room.

She remembered her talk with Robin days ago as well as her mother's advice that she had been told long ago. It was sufficient enough to keep a smile on her face.
She made her way to the roof as usual to meet with Robin. He gave her a small smile as she approached him. "Surely our mothers are happy in a better place. My mother had always told me to smile everyday because it is a reminder of times that we had the moments of the happiness."

It had been several months since you had disappeared and even though Steve had gone on with his life, he still couldn't get you out of his head.

'This is a good way to start the week,' you panted, shooting down the agents that came your way. One had almost reached you, but before he could lash out, Steve t

2015, New York - Avengers Tower day of the party
Music was echoing through the Avengers tower while you were making your way inside the living room. It was packed with people. You had thought it would be a small get together, but you should have known Tony would go full out.
You softly hummed along with the music and looked around you, trying to spot any of the Avengers. You hadn’t seen them since you had all come back from the mission. They had all suggested you’d stay in the tower to rest, but before any of them could ask you to join the team, you had gone to your home in Brooklyn. You needed to clear your head and decide if you wanted to continue this life after everything that had happened.
'[Name]!' Natasha cried out to you from the couch, waking you from your strain of thought. She was sitting next to Tony's friend: Colonel James Rhodes, but she waved you to come over anyway. 'I didn't think you'd come anymore. You

2014, New York - almost three weeks after Steve telling you, you were more than a friend to him
You sighed, as you sat in the sun with your eyes closed. It had been several weeks since the events in the HYDRA base and thanks to Steve and Helen Cho, you had recovered within a few days. Your skin was completely healed and when you had looked in the mirror for the first time, you almost couldn't tell the difference.
The only thing that reminded you of what had happened at the base was the red scar on your cheek. Helen had offered to heal that as well, but you had refused, knowing you needed something to remind yourself of what had almost happened.
You only had one week to go before you were supposed to kiss your soul mate. You almost started to think you might be the only one to miss their 'true love's kiss'. You had been on some dates between missions with the Avengers, but none really were the kind of man you were looking for.
'Cause that man was sitting right before you, looki

‘So,’ colonel James Rhodes finished, for at least the tenth time this evening, ‘I drop the box in front of his house and say: ‘Are you looking for this?’”
The crowd around him erupted in a melodic laughter and you smiled, slowly shaking your head. You had heard the story so many times that often you even dreamed about it. You thought it was rather funny. Not the story, but the content look on his face every time someone who hadn’t heard it before laughed.
You looked around the room, trying to spot any of the other Avengers. It had been hard to recover after everything that had happened with Ultron. Especially now that the government didn’t seem pleased with you after you had again left nothing but ash and dust trying to safe the world. That you had actually succeeded in saving everyone, was something easily forgotten. The party they were giving in your honor now, was more something mandatory than an actual celebration. You didn’t re

The period of time in which

It is something that will take

Visiting hours were over, finally, and the last of Dick's visitors had left. Most of the student body, and faculty, of Gotham Academy had been by to see him at some point over the last few days, and it was surprising how tiring trying to smile and be upbeat for near strangers. He was glad to see the last of them go.
Bruce had left word with Sarah, the day shift nurse, that he would be late coming up to the hospital. The man had taken a trip out to Metropolis on business and the train back was delayed because of repairs to the Gotham Station.
Truth be told, Dick didn't mind. He was luxuriating in the quiet that came from finally being alone. The hospital bed reclined back and he closed his eyes.
"Knock, knock, Dickie-bird," the voice interrupted his silence a moment later.
Dick started at the sound, not having heard the door open, but when he glanced at the entrance to the room no one was there. A movement at the corner of his eyes had him snapping his head to

Always for me.
And so he was who I always watched when I wasn't flying.
And it was why, that night, I watched him fall.
I saw it in his eyes first. The rich chocolate eyes that were alight with love and joy as he did what he did best. He felt the wires buck, lifted his eyes to a spot above my head and I followed that gaze. I saw the moment when he saw and recognized the fate that would not be his alone.

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.
