"Raven Arella Xavier! Daughter of Trigon the Terrible! Behold, the Arch Demon Agathor, your executioner!"
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?"
"Oh, that one demon with all the X's in his name, I don't remembe

Raven sat back, listening to Starfire and Jinx go on about their respective boys. It irritated her, given she was - and probably always would be - still single. But then again, she suppossed girl talk always devolved into talk of boys eventually, and it was interesting to listen to what it was that irritated the girls about their respective boys.
"Boyfriend Robin is wonderful...mostly. But I am concerned that it is unusual for the boy to spend more time primping then the girl does, yes?"
"You think that's bad?" Jinx waved her hand dismissively. "Have you seen the way CYborg goes over his car? Sometimes it seems like he loves that car more than me! It's irritating, I tell you, but what with his tech being sucha big part of him, I'd feel guilty making a fuss over it, so...yeah."

They had arrived in Tokyo, seeking information about this Brushogun that had sent the attack on the tower. Robin and Starfire had gone to 'investigate'. Cyborg had gone exploring. Beast Boy stared up at the closed building he had hoped to tour. Raven watched him, smiling. That was her boyfriend; wisest person she knew in his own way, and a total nerd. She hugged him, and he smiled at her. "Hey."
"Hey." She watched his face. "I know you were looking forward to the tour-"
"There's something wrong here."
She stopped. The way he said that...he wasn't talking about the absence of tours. His animal instincts were telling him something. "Is it dangerous?"
"I don't know. Maybe."
"Then let's go elsewhere. Not our problem. The Chief Inspector said Brushogun is a myth, so let's just enjoy ourselves, like you said."

"A little advice, girl," Dr. Light said with a laugh. "Get shorter incantations."
"Fine," Raven said with a snarl, and vanished, only to appear behind him with one hand around his throat. "Sleep." Dr. Light fell unconcious.
THe others gathered around, shocked. "Raven," Robin started, "if you could always do that, why haven't you been?"
"That particular spell only works on pure humans, and most of our foes have powers which protect them. Also, it only works with skin-to-skin contact and takes a couple moments of preperation. Not very reliable. Only worked this time because his guard was down."

Trigon stood upon the Earth, glaring baleful hatred at his opponent.
Galactus stood upon the ground, staring wonderingly at this creature that had so caught him by surprise.
The ammassed heroes and villains stood, awed and aghast, at the stakes this battle had just risen to.
The civilians in their homes watched in wonder, not sure who to root for.
Cyborg had pulled out his video camera, saying, "THis is gonna be epic!"
Raven turned and offered the bowl to her friends. "Popcorn?"
Galactus spoke. "I know not who you are, hellish creature, but I am Galactus, Devourer of Worlds, and this world will be my meal, and you will not stop me."
Trigon spat on the ground in contempt. "I am Trigon the Terrible, Demon Conquerer of numerous dimensions who's names you will never know. And, as my incipient green son-in-law would say...I have dibs!"

Jinx cannoned into him. "Cyborg! Thank god! I have no idea what to do, I need your help desperately!"
Suddenly, this didn't seem like such a small emergency anymore. "What's going on?"
"Come upstaris and see."
Upstairs, Cyborg saw Hot Spot, Herald, and Argent...in daipers. "Umm..."

It seemed like just an ordinary day for the Teen Titans...until the alarm went off. Everyone ran to the common room, but instead of a mission alert, there was a message...from Batman.
"Teen Titans, please report to the Hall of Justice immediately. I repeat, please report to the Hall of Justice immediately. This is an Omega 7 Emergency." The message cut.
Robin gulped. "Cyborg, get everyone - and I mean EVERYONE - to the Hall of Justice, ASAP."
"Robin," Starfire asked concerned. "What is an Omega 7 emergency?"
Robin shuddered. "Armageddon."
Later, at the Hall of Justice... (1)
The assembled Justice League members and Teen Titans stood, waiting for the message. Everyone was there, as news of impending Armageddon had brought everyone together quite rapidly.

"Hell!" baby Aqualad shouted, floating in the tub.
"Demonios!" a baby Mas and Menos proclaimed, the word being translated into Spanish.
Speedy sweatdropped. "I am in WAY over my head here..."
Working hard, he managed to get everyone situated. He mixed up a kelp mix for Aqualad, and some formula for the other babies. He had a real hard time getting Bumblebee to drink her formula, and Mas and Menos kept dashing around the Tower like crazy. He even went so far as to disconnect the alarm so he wouldn't have any headaches he couldn't handle.
He'd finally gotten Aqualad, Mas, and Menos situated in seperate sleeping areas (the tub for Aqualad, and cribs seperated by a wall for the twins), and wa

After attending Garfield and Raven's wedding, Robin, Starfire, and Cyborg returned to Titan Tower. It wasn't long before they realized something pretty significant. They were understrength. After looking at this for some time (about five minutes), Robin resolved this issue with his usual alacrity. He had the Tower computer scan through any Titan transfer requests to select two people to fill the empty roster slots. Everyone was somewhat surprised when Jinx and Wildebeast showed up to fill the empty slots on the team.
"Jinx! Wildebeast! Good to see you both." Robin glanced at Jinx for a bit. "I'd have thought Kid Flash would have been reassigned with you."
Jinx glared at Robin for a bit. "Let's just say it's best if we're not in the same tower just now."

Beast Boy came out of his room one day a little different than he normally did. Raven was the first to notice. He had his bracers bared on his arms, and he'd altered his costume somewhat, leaving him barechested. Strapped to his back was his vibronium blade, and he'd applied Wakandan war paint. When everyone noticed, they raised eyebrows.
"Yo, BB! What's with the new look?"
Beast Boy reached into a pocket, and pulled out a small device with an X on it. Raven raised an eyebrow.

After a few seconds of searching you come across something smooth on one side, and cold, wet, and oddly shaped on the other. You lift it out of the bucket only to find a half eaten apple. "Really, what the hack people?" You scrunch up your nose.
"I was eating an apple when Jiraiya wanted something of mine. I don't exactly go places prepared to play childish games. I wasn't the one who put my apple in the bucket, it was Jiraiya. I would have very much liked to have finished my snack." Neji glared over at Jiraiya.

The sun was long gone and the moon had taken its place. Everyone else was tucked in their bunks, fast asleep. Or, so you thought. Unable to sleep due to the unbearable heat, you had crawled from your bed and headed outside in hopes of catching a cool breeze. Though it was late, the moon was incredibly bright. Because of this, you were easily able to see the silhouette of someone standing at the edge of camp. 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? I thought we were all supposed to be inside hours ago.”
The sound of your voice caused Armin to jump back a full foot. Once he realized who you were, his fear unsatisfied. Despite that, he tried to remain friendly and somewhat calm. “Oh it's you. I didn't see you. Sorry I jumped like that.”

“It's mine. I'm glad you like it. You can keep it if you'd like, I don't exactly wear jewelry.” Shino walked over to you from the corner. You couldn't tell if he was happy to have been picked or not due to his monotone voice and the fact that most of his body was covered.
“Thank you. That's really sweet of you.” You smiled happily and tried to place the necklace around your neck.

“No promises, but I'll try.” Standing from your seat, you walked up to the bucket and started feeling around. Shortly after you had placed your hand inside, something cold and metallic wrapped itself around your fingers. Figuring this item was just as good as any, you lifted it out of the bucket. You immediately recognized this item as Hidan's necklace. "I'm not so sure this is a good idea." Understandably worried, you inwardly cringed.
Before you could make up your mind, Hidan took his place next to you and wrapped his arm around your shoulders. "Too late now, you picked out my item, and now I'm not going to let you go." Far more eager than you were, he swept you

Summary: "Maybe I’m just an unlikable person", Billy muttered. Teddy gritted his teeth, relating to those words more than he cared to admit.
Teddy Altman had issues. He was well aware of that, ever since being popular stopped being about who had the most action figures and started being about who had the most girls' phone numbers on his cell-phone, about who had more muscles or more money and a shiner car, or a more expensive boom-box or just the guy who knew a guy who knew someone.

Teddy wasn't any of those things, sans perhaps 'complicated'.

We looked around the house but not finding anything except for a old furniture covered by dirty white sheet with moth holes. "Robin, the tracker isn't coming from here, it's coming from....underground." Cyborg said. "Then we go there. We have to find them. Let's try the basement." Sure enough, it wasn't a dark and scary basement that we expected, it had clean silver metal walls and the stairs were the same. There was a slight smell of air freshener and as we got closer down there stairs, it became more noticeable. We just got to the bottom of the stairs when we saw some iron doors down the hall.

There pop songs! Everyone loves that kind of music Rae." I said. She sat down on the chair that was reserved for her. She looked at me with a 'you know why goofball' face. But she told me anyway. "Because I'm not the kind of person who listens to junk about going to parties and clubs or being in a relationship. That's why." She sat there with her head in her hands.

As I hold on tight...
And memories flare to life.
And try not to cry...

I still feel it on my lips...
The first time we danced all night.
And we were all right...
I remember all the simple things.
I remember them all the time.
But one thing I remember you said to me.
The thing I can't forget...
Is our love will never die.
I walk up to you.
As tried not to cry...
And through my tears I say hi...
I don't know what to do.
I can't lie...
'Cause I know I'm wasting my time.

The thing can't forget...
Is our love will never die.
Suddenly my eyes are filled.
With your smile...
You hesitate but say it anyway.
You sound a little scared...

I'm not that blushing girl that you skyped and made jokes with.

That girl gave up on herself a while back.

That girl who believed in true love realized that love was a joke.

To the days were we showed affection and talked everyday about anything we had on our minds.
To the days I would come crying to you and you would take away the pain with a few words.
To the days were I felt like I belonged and felt that nothing else mattered.
To the days were I thought I was in love with you.
But those days are gone thanks to the dark cloud thats blocking the sun in my days.
But those days will come again soon I know they will because Im working on getting better.

The sparkles in his eyes when he smiles.
The way he laughs and his crazy sence of style.
The way he says my name, so soft and sweet.
He makes my heart skip a little beat.
The shivers that he sends running up my spine.
I will never tell him another lie.
The softness of his lips on mine.
His silly little pick up lines.
The way he pulls me close and holds me in his arms.
He never would do me any harm.
The way he makes me hide my face when I blush.
Even though he grabes my hands in the rush.
The way he brings out my inner dork.
He says he likes my weird little corks.
The way he looks at me, so full of care and wonder.
He makes my heart flutter.
The way he gases off into space.
He hates it when I dissapear with out a trace.
The way he makes the room light up when he walks in.
Just thinking of him makes me grin.

Why do I even bother trying to make him feel better?
All he does is shove it in my face and make me want to cry.
Why can he see that what he has been telling me he wants is right here infront of him?
Why does he have to be so damn blind to what he has?
Sometimes I wish I could slap him and scream "EVERYTHING YOU WANT, HAS BEEN HERE THE WHOLE DAMN TIME! YOU JUST REFUSE TO BELIEVE ITS ME!"
Sometimes I wish I could kiss him and hold him in my arms forever.
I wish I could take away all the pain she has caused him.
I wish I could take away the memories she left running through his head.
I always tell him Ti Amo Per Sempre and things will get better.
I always told him no matter how bad things get you have to stay positive because things will get better.
I remember the summer days of when we first met and how much I loved him then and now.
I remember the stormy nights when he would call me and make me feel less afraid of the thunder.
I remember the late night calls and the songs he sang to me

Wanting to hold you in my arms and cry myself out of tears.

Shaking as my head hits my pillow.
And I begin to dream and appear under a willow.
Hearing your crying I rush to your side.
Taking you hand and telling you everything will be alright.
But sometimes the one who you see as prince charming can become clouded.
So you start to wander and try to leave the feelings of being doubted.

Don't doubt my love for you.

Adrenaline seething through veins,
Transporting the catalyst.
Such a surge of power,

While mine knows the dangerous it presents,

The acceptance of the journey
but no more than the patience

in our life that can
take us where we need
or a moment ignored
only to cascade,
lost to the unwinding maze.
That peaceful emotion
swaying preciously in our deep hearts,
revelling in the knowledge
that all will be well,
in our end or rather in our absence.
It is the the finer times of our stories,
the recognition of something
far ethereal and enigmatic than can be explained.
The period of time in which
one can truly understand

It is something that will take

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 had assumed that one of them had cast the spell while the other was the object. The empath was instantly engulfed, by her dark raven and headed towards Starfire's room before the two visitors had time to escape.

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 flew to the roof, a pink backpack clutched at hand. She sighed sadly as she took one final glance at the door from which she appeared from. Robin didn't want her. She was a nuisance. Even the other Titans were annoyed of her. She felt unwanted as of lately. So she decided to leave and perhaps hope for the best.
She looked at the moon, sighed, and levitated off the ground. She took off to the city, searching for a new place to stay, then suddenly a thought struck her. She might be found easily... maybe it's better off if she went somewhere else. Perhaps a place where her friends do not know.
Robin looked at the door, where Starfire had once stood. He felt bad. He hated himself for yelling at her. He knew that the poor alien only wanted to help. He knew that she didn't want to talk to him. So he decided to talk to her once the morning came.
He turned off the lights. Hopefully she'll forgive me, he thought. But he was unaware of his best friend's departure at that

Sometimes I wonder if he misses me as much as I do, the scarlet haired woman thought. She lied on her bed, staring aimlessly at the ceiling, waiting for sleep to overcome her. Unfortunately, she could never find rest.
It was a normal, unhealthy routine in which she grew well accustomed to. Ever since the day she had last seen him, Kori Anders was not able to sleep peacefully. Her emerald eyes appeared lifeless and dull in the shining moonlight that spilled through her bedroom window. This was her true form, her true face. No one had ever seen this depressing face on the lovely girl's complexion. She was always seen with a smile, positive attitude, and energetic. No one would ever suspect such a happy girl with a miserable past.
With her long, slender fingers, she raked her red fringes towards the crown of her head. She felt the shorter hairs slap back to her forehead while the longer ones remained in

As the sliding door opened, Larry popped forward screaming, "Hi guys!"
"Friend Larry!" Starfire greeted. She flew towards him and gave him a hug. As always, Larry melted into a pool of goo as several hearts loomed over his head.
"Hey Larry!" Beast Boy also greeted.
"Wassup lil man?" Cyborg called out.
"Robin!" Larry shouted from the floor. He instantly turned back to his normal state and flew off to hug Robin's face.
Too late to react, Robin's face was instantly hugged by his mini doppelganger.
"Raven's who's that?" the leader asked, ignoring the growing annoyance for the boy invading his personal bubble.
That brought everyone's attention to Silkie. Raven looked at him, which cued his act.
"Uh, my name's Sean and I am a friend of Raven's," the boy stuttered nervously.
"But how'd ya get in?" Cyborg asked. "I built my tower with the highest security that even the most skillful hacker can't get in, let alone a person!"

Sean awoke to the sound of a knock at his door. What a strange dream, the boy thought as he stretched. But once he took notice of his surrounding, he found himself in the same forbidden room. Okay, maybe it wasn't a dream after all...
There was a secod knock, just as soft and patient as the first knock. Groggily, the boy apporached the door and opened it. Before him was an unhooded Raven in her brooding glory.
When the door opened, she noticed his bare chest, since he was a head taller than her. Sean had a pretty attractive body that matched his bad boy face. His chest and stomach were toned, almost chiseled. It was as if Sean worked out daily like any other Titan. It was hard to believe that the worm was so handsome despite eating and sleeping in his real form. Raven did admit that his appearance flustered her for a moment, but she successfully kept her composure. Raven greeted him with a blank face, yet her eyes questioned his ap

He sighed aggravated that he may loose Starfire to Aqualad.
"Why don't cha take her out on a date?" Cyborg hinted.
"Why would I do that? She's my best friend."
Cyborg and Beast Boy rolled their eyes at the masked hero.
"Dude, it's so obvious that you love her. Do something about it!" Beast Boy said.
"I can't." Robin turned away from them.
"You can't or you wouldn't? Man, half the men in the world would die to be with her. 'Sides, she loves you too, ya know?"
"Don't joke with me, Cy," Robin said, a little hopeful.
"I ain't," Cyborg replied firmly. "If ya weren't always in your little obsession over being a hero, you would see it as well." Cyborg folded his arms over his chest as he chuckled lightly. "Ya needa make a move before somebody else does."

"Starfire " he extended a gloved hand towards the alien girl. She eyed him with a playful grin plastered on her face. She reached out to hold his hand as he pulled her to her feet, followed by pulling her into his arms. They spun in a circle for several seconds as they shared laughs and giggles. Then the leader fell on his back on the soft flower bed that surrounded them. They gazed into each others eyes adoringly before leaning in for a kiss.
"Robin " the red headed princess said as she closed her eyes just as their lips softly brushed one another.
Then she felt tears run down her face. She opened her eyes to see the ebony haired boy crying. She reached out to him and caressed his tears away.
"Please do not cry " she said. The boy opened his mouth only to release a sharp cry. It had caught Starfire off guard. She never knew that Robin cried like this. It was almost as if he were a baby!

The boy was fairly taller than the girl, about an inch or two taller than the brown haired girl. He had a soft, boyish face with porcelain skin, thin cupid bow lips, and a button nose. His cheeks were a soft red due to the snipping cold that blew around him. He smiled at her with the most loving and caring pair of hazel eyes. She couldn't help but feel her face grow hot with this much attention bathed on to her. She smiled back with equal love and care as she snuggled closer to the brown haired boy.
They walked aimlessly around the town park in the middle of a winter night. The night was silent except for the sound of their feet trudging through the deep snow. It was a comfortable silence in which the focus revolved around the couple.
A perfect night that is until it was to be the last memory that will forever haunt her

The sharp intake of air was the first indication that things had gone wrong.
The battle on the beach came to an abrupt halt as the two powerhouses stopped, face to face and chest to chest.
No one moved, no one dared breathe.

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.
Dick felt the thread of fear and swallowed the rising panic. But seeing the interior

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.

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 area's worst hit is reported to have been the neighborhood locally known as Crime

So the blonde sat there, staring at the back of Superboy's head while he sat on the sofa staring at the black screen of the television. Megan was somewhere behind her, puttering around the kitchen but not actually doing anything. The emotions that hung in the air were too much for the young telepath.
