"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."

Raven and Beast Boy were cuddled up on her bed. She had refused to let go of him the entire party, not that he was complaining. They were both finally at peace with themselves...and each other. There had been a few curious glances directed their way, but they didn't care.
He smiled down at his love. "So Raven," he started quietly, "wanna tell me what happened?"
She looked up at him and smiled. "Didn't Dr. McCoy teach you better tact?"
He chuckled. "Sorry. Couldn't think of a better way to ask."
She smiled. "Well, no, I don't want to tell you." At his hurt expression, she chuckled. "I'd rather show you."
He blinked, but he understood when her eyes began to glow, and images flooded into his mind.
Raven stalked across the barren, scarred landscape. "Trigon!" she shouted out. "This is YOUR domain, I know you're here!"

Raven stood, staring at herself in the mirror, holding the boquet. At her white dress.
She never thought it would actually happen, but today was the day. She'd loved him since she was small, and today, they would be together forever.
There was a knock at the door. "Yes?"
Her Uncle Eric stepped in. "They're ready for you, dear."
She nodded, and rested her hand on his arm.
"You're beautiful, you know."
She blushed. "Thank you."
Eric led her into the aisle, and music started to play.

Beast Boy sat on the shores of the island, staring up at the Tower. Gently, he struck a chord on his guitar. He hadn't worked on his music for a while...but then, he hadn't had a reason. Now, all he had were reasons. Gazing up at Raven's window, he sighed and struck a chord.
"I've heard there was a secret chord
That David played and it pleased the Lord"
He thought of how much he tried to do for Raven, how much he tried to make her laugh, to smile.
"But you don't really care for music, do you?"
But every time, she just pushed him away.
"It goes like this
The fourth, the fifth
The minor fall, the major lift"
He tried so hard...but what did it do for either of them?

Raven set the flowers down at the foot of the statue that was once a person...an enemy? A friend? A rival? She wasn't quite sure how she viewed her anymore. She turned to Beast Boy. "Will...she ever change back?" Normally, she'd be the one who knew the answer to that question...but her knowledge of mythical creatures was limited.
Beast Boy shook his head. "Never. A basalisk's gaze is permanent. You know...if she'd had just a hair's more control...something worth fighting for...she could have done this herself, turned herself to stone and freeze the volcano."
"How would that have been any better?"
"Then there's all sorts of magic and even mundane cures that could have been used to free her...or she might have managed it on her own." He sighed. "But now...she's trapped forever. Nothing will ever free her."

Beast sat on the porch, sipping tea with Xavier, discussing recent events. "SO how goes Raven's training, Professor?"
"As well as can be expected, Hank. Her magic is growing, and her skill at manipulating it is impressive. But...her mind shields, while more than effective at keeping out any mortal probe, aren't enough to keep her father out. I've attempted to help her strengthen them, but...he breaks through every time."
"Perhaps it is the shape of the shield. He gets into her mind so easily, perhaps it is not her mind he is striking through."
"You suggest he might be striking through their blood connection?"
"Blood is a very powerful force for demons, according to my research. And there are those parts of Raven's bloodwork we were never able to analyze."

Trigon continued to roar his triumph, power cosmic coursing through his veins, blood dripping from his fanged mouth. He roared again, and again, and the world shook with his roars.
As civilians, villains, and heroes alike quaked in respone to his roars, Raven sighed. Leaving her lounge chair, she floated up to his forehead, conjured a giant hand of dark energy with two fingers extended, and whacked him on the temple, right below his horn.
"Ow!" Trigon said, rubbing his forehead, and things slowly returned to normal.
"Okay, old man," Raven said, glowering at him. "YOu did your job. Now you can go home."
"Aw...you don't want me around anymore?"
"No, I don't want you frightening the civilians."
Trigon seemed to notice he was the center of attention. "Oh. That's a problem then?"

Charles and Eric had been working hard, each in there own way, to help Raven in what they both now knew was coming. Charles had been working with Raven, helping her to develop both the strength and control of her powers, while consulting a few mages he knew with how to proceed in training her skills.
Eric's approach was different. In between everything else he was doing, he scrounged the world for every book of magic and spells he could get his hands on, everything from the crafting of a golem to throwing fireballs to summoning elementals. First he'd go through them for anything that could be used against Trigon. If he didn't find anything, he gave the book to Raven to add to her spell library.
Of course, not all the books she received from her Uncle were spellbooks. Some were bedtime stories and fairy tales. When he broguht those, he would always read them to her. Not that she couldn't

Cyborg was working in the garage of the Titan Tower. For once, though, he didn't actually have a major project. He was just puttering around. His last major assembly was the bike he gave to Jinx. Finally, he knew he had to actually do something besides continuously crank the same bolt on the same tiny device.
"Jeez, at the rate I'm going, next time the grass stain bugs me down here, I'll yell, 'BB! Get out of my laboratory!' Then again, he'd probably get a real kick out of that." Chuckling to himself, he went to turn on the radio. Poignant strains of guitar music filled the garage, and once again he was put in mind of the pink haired witch that was so on his mind. Then the first of the lyrics came.

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.”
“Oh that's quite alright, I was trying to sneak up on you anyway.”

It was a thick, heavily stylized piece of paper, with the name Akito, written right in the center. “Well this made things easy enough.”
“That's the only thing that's going to be easy.” Shigure seemed a little worried by your item. “If you wanted to pick something else out, I'd let you. Just do it quickly okay?” He tried shoving your item back into the pot, but was stopped by Akito grasping his wrist.

“Yup, as ready as I'll ever be.” You walked up to where he was standing and dropped your hand inside the bucket. There wasn't a whole lot inside, so you were easily able to tell what you were picking. It was a bit of cloth; but what was printed on it worried you slightly. A red cloud, the symbol for the Akatsuki. “Which one of you guys did I get?”
Nagato looked up at you, and slowly stood from the couch. “That's my item.” He walked over to you, looking drained, tired, and rather emotionless. “I apologize, I doubt I'll be as much fun as some of the other candidates.”

Inside it was different. Inside there was only one, a lonely teen who spent that evening like he did all others - in his "secret base", training for a fight against his very future. His teammates, usually eager to be there, were gone, having asked for a night off for reasons that were beyond him. He relented - rest was also important when preparing for war, after all.

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.

Tears falling down my face as the rain drops fall from my hair.
I don't know how to show you how I've always cared.
Afraid of losing you and not ready to let go.
Pain hits my heart every time you say that it's not my fault.
Wanting to hold you in my arms and cry myself out of tears.
Telling you all my hates and fears.
Love is never easy and never fair.
But I promise to try hard to show you that I'll always love and care.
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.
I promised you I'd always come back to you my darling and it's something I intend on keeping.
Don't doubt my love for you.
Because you have the key to my heart and you always will.

I am the punk rocker mixed with hip hopper style.
I am the one who holds her head up tall when people try to knock her down.
I am the one who braves the world with a smile on my face even when I'm broken inside.
I am the one who doesn't care what people think of me.
I am the model who struts her stuff down the runway.
I am the singer who sings her heart out, not caring who hears.
I am the girl whose laughter bounces off the walls.
The one who said,
"Keep your head up, stand tall and watch all your haters fall."
The girl who can't be silenced.

You feel like there is no way out.
That your drowning in life...
Nothing to hold onto...
Afriad to be alone.

Tears rolling down your cheeks and hit the floor.
Crying yourself to sleep for you can feel them there after they past on...
Wanting to hold them in your arms one more time...
To see them smile...
To hear them laugh...
Its so hard to stay strong for the ones you love...
So they dont worry..

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.

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. He felt so stupid for letting you go into that control room alone. You had been part of the team for so long that he had forgotten you weren't a real agent. You had always pretended you were, but above all you were a computer and robotics specialist from MIT. You were recruited to S.H.I.E.L.D after you had tried (and succeeded) to hack into the security system (set up by Tony himself) and rolled into the Avengers team after risking your life together with Steve during the fall of S.H.I.E.LD. Steve knew he shouldn't have left you alone.
Fury didn't give him much time to dwell on his mistakes for long. New missions always followed soon after others were finished and if Steve wasn't trying to keep you from his mind, he would have said something about it.
Today was like any other.

The Awakening of Miss HydeIt is the most eccentric part of my life. -The Awakening of Miss Hyde in Free Verse More Like This
When the darkness that resides in my soul,
stretches its limbs and snatches control.
Gone are all pretences of innocence,
replaced by this sadistic resemblance.
Refined tolerance is what I require,
for I can no longer detain this ire.
Enclosed by wilts of the heart,
those creatures whom threaten to tear me apart.
For this enmity can't be encaged,
you fiends that rupture my rage.
My eyes may deceive,
but are you really that naive?
I doubt you would know a thing on trust,
blowing it around as your minds' see it as mere dust.
While mine knows the dangerous it presents,
considering I am what that hazardous represents.
I'll lacerate you pigment by pigment with my bare teeth,
then I'll watch your remains rot beneath.
- All this is the inception of my sweet strife.
It is the most eccentric part of my life. -

but I have been touched more than my heart can falter.
Your presence was far from impotent,
something that time can not alter.
My walls have been broken,
and my soul awoken.
Nothing can banish the feelings I hold,
your caress was uncontrolled.
Genuine and strong,
but now I can not move on.
our hearts combined.
My love, I will wait, no matter how long it takes,
through all this heartache.
We will remain.
Midnight DanceThrough the darken vines,Midnight Dance in Free Verse More Like This
I sway, to and fro,
melodically to the sacred violins,
floating and twirling,
like the phoenix's final cry
I release hormonic tunes,
calling all creatures,
as the fireflies light my way,
I continue spinning out of my cage,
too powerful, too elegant for the human body,
entrancing up to a harmonious end.
Waiting In Neverland𝄑Waiting In Neverland in Free Verse More Like This
I'll fly through tales and windows,
leaving open the shutter door,
I'll fly the route to saviours, mermaids
and all creatures more.
I'll package away each moment
with a sigh of caress,
I'll smell each every roses, flowers
and medicines of best.
Each child filled with laughter will understand my woes
and banish them away with swords, courage, wisdom,
I'll find my inner child,
I'll take her back
I'll follow every faerie,
I do believe in faeries.
Each saviour along my adventures,
Each play written by us,
we'll hunt all sorts of traitorous pirates,
and splatter them with paint, food
& fey dust.
I'll cackle with wee Tinkerbell,
I'll be her friend dear.
Each special day I will take,
Each night I fly awake.
I'll sail my hearts desires,
In never Neverland.
I'll wait each lasting moment,
for it is forever in Neverland.
I'll wait for you.
I'll wait for Peter

Seasonal BlissSeasonal Bliss in Free Verse More Like This
Hope, acceptance but nothing
more or less than patience.
The hope for that dream
The acceptance of the journey
but no more than the patience
of all to come.
It is but a moment,
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
wisdom or experience.
It is something that will take
many a lifetimes to proclaim.
The Grim EvolutionThe Grim Evolution in Free Verse More Like This
It is I in a sombre mood when the birds come dancing,
dancing and prancing, while the glitters of those are encased.
Their melodic feathers are glaciers, dangers, and woes.
And their songs of pleasantries drive the insanity in vain.
The Sapiens are glancing and enhancing the tales,
whispering and glistening these creatures of pain
but no body is taken and all the souls are awaken'
for these treacherous fiends have drawn the horrors to stay.
More is the fear of all those shaken and many alike,
forgotten the faithful's claims "No sorry been jest,
hail 'n' we will let the rest," but no courter or jester
can lessen the screams all we are are is less than our schemes.
Wander and ponder with a day but a dream
and we'll follow you through as malice is our key.
We'll follow you home, we'll follow you free,
you better watch your step or better yet..me.
Glory in darkness, we will thrill off your despair.
Oh swallow your sorrows, pity is hollow
lest we think you unworthy,
sacrifice your fear.

The Trio of TenorAct I - to perfection...The Trio of Tenor in Free Verse More Like This
" Perfectionism is but a mirage of deceptions.
An excuse for the ever disruptive delegations.
-Dishonour forming from the forsaken philanthropy,
that of which releases a flock free of reputations. "
" Perfect in a diversity of tongues never reaches Utopia.
The interpretation becomes psychologically poor,
as in its own asymmetrically it presents a flaw. . ."
" Then why must we be what a word is not.
Nothing can be perfect but why must it exist?
The word ever-changing proves it is not flawless.
The beauty is there however unequaled is it not. "
"...for each to their own is beauty ethereal,
or better more they are all ephemeral.
Ever-changing is perfection to one,
yet destruction proves it is not for some."
" So then perfection doesn't exist? "
" It does it is just not what we believe it is "

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

It was the vile taste of rancid leftovers that finally chased the last vestiges of unconsciousness from him mind. Thirteen year old Robin forced his eyes open and regretted it instantly when the all-too-familiar, pulsating pounding threatened to split his skull. 'Damn it, why am I the one who always ends up getting chloroformed," he complained internally, attempting to massage the headache that was centralized behind his temples. Except his hands wouldn't move; that was when he realized how he was laying.
On his side, with his hands unable to be moved from behind him.
It was always disconcerting, being kidnapped when he was Dick Grayson. If he had been Robin he could have fought back, but as the adopted son of billionaire Bruce Wayne he knows only the rudimentary basics of self defense; easily overpowered by someone determined enough. Especially if his abductor was armed with chloroform soaked rags and rendered him unconscious. Which left him helpless to whatever means of containment w

However, my new poll has reminded me that many of you want to see more in the Linchpin verse, so I dug this out and cleaned it up a bit.

AUTHOR'S NOTE: This is a continuation of my AU of the Episode "Depths". I've been working on this for a while and I'm rather pleased with how it turned out. I borrowed a bit from DC Comic "Nightwing #114", because it's one of my favorites and I really wanted it in my story. So I took it and rewrote it and put it here and I'm not sorry! LoL!

The crowd was thin, maybe a few dozen people, but it was enough for the drone of voice to fill the gymnasium. The bleachers were all but empty of spectators, only a few parents and chaperones willing to brave the cold snap that Gotham City awoke to on the first Saturday of December. The cold that could be felt every time the door opened and a draft came in from the corridor.
