Warning: Robin in a naughty light.
There were so many things so right and so wrong with the whole situation.  First off, it wasn't exactly just a situation.  It was more of a game.  At least it was to Robin.
A solitary one.  Solitaire of sorts.
It involved Starfire's metal armband.  
Such an intriguing item.  She played with it all the time.  It was truly a badge of honor as she finally told him about it one night, given on the first night before battle.  A dog tag of sorts, not that 'dog' and 'Starfire' belonged in the same thought.  It stayed with a warrior for life, made of a special metal that was maliable, no stretchable, reshapable enough to grow and change as the Tamaranian Warrior who wore i

Goodbye Old Friend
This is a tribute to my horse who I needed to put down earlier this week.  I had it up as a journal entry, but it was suggested I put it up as a deviation by two of my friends.  I have a picture of him among my photographs if you are interested.
Larramy (1993-2011)
Goodnight Sweet Prince is overused, but my horse, Larramy, really was royalty, not that I had a thing to do with that. This international show jumper, with a frequently stamped passport, fell into my life right after my father's death in 2007. I really had no business at my age and health buying another horse - I hadn't had my own in 8 or 9 years at that point - but he was AMAZING. The owner wanted him to have a nice retirement and he did. And for the last four and a half years we've grown old together.
There were hopes of a resurgence of soundness of health for both of us, but it never quite happened for us as a team. But he was still my buddy. And it was not that he lacked human companionship in my abse

June Fete, Chapter 1
JUNE FETE - A Teen Titans Fan Fiction
June 4th is said to be Starfire's birthday, at least according to some sources.
The basic premise is that it is the first time that Robin and Starfire have celebrated her birthday as a couple and it takes place a little under two months after Tokyo.  I am using the timeline placing Tokyo after Season 5.
Disclaimer: Teen Titans are the property of DC Comics and the cartoon was produced through Warner Brothers. They are apparently not for sale within my price range.
Adapted from Wikipedia: Fête is a French word that is used in English. While mostly used in the USA for a country fair or other such events, the original meaning of fête is party, festival or celebration.

Birthday Plans
The middle of May was a beautiful time in the greater Jump City area. It warm and sunny most of the time, and the spring rains had left the area as green and lush as it was at any other time of the year. But it wasn't the weather that was on t

FINAL CHAPTER - "It's the Winter Solstice tonight, the longest night of the year," remarked Lt. Dick Grayson to the red haired beauty he had met only hours before. "Then why does it feel as though it is the shortest?" Kori Anders replied.

Cold. Wet. Hard. It took a minute for it to register with Dick that Kori had just hit him in the back of his neck with a snowball. On that small strip of bare skin between where the turtleneck ended and his hat started, a perfect shot and it stung. She apparently had a very good arm plus abundant limb strength as it were.
He turned around to see Kori dissolve into giggles, poised with another large snowball.
"Don't think I won't retaliate Kori, because I will," Dick warned with a smile. With that, Kori threw the other snowball, this one connecting with Dick's shoulder, only because his

"Good morning, Richard. Please come in," Kori said with a slight blush as she answered the door.
"Morning, Kori, did you sleep well?" Dick asked with a twinkle in his eye as he walked into her room in the Bed and Breakfast. He almost laughed when he saw the mattress, still on the floor by the fire from the night before. Not that he expected her to move it back on her own, but even made up, it looked odd in the light of day.
"I must confess that I did not sleep well, nor very long at all," she coyly

"I will be waiting for you."
Richard looked at Kori and her sweet smile as he processed what Kori had just said and what it meant. Now the cynic in him, the one his adoptive father Bruce Wayne raised, was tempted to think, "this isn't 1945", but as he sat there all he could think about the angel that was in his arms and how wonderful she was and how much he actually wanted her to do just that: to wait for him.
Not necessarily a religious man, Richard found himself looking skyward, mouthing thanks to God or whatever Higher Power had given him something he so desperately wanted but either never realized he did or never admitted it to himself.

Chapter 2
Conversation between Dick and Kori continued with ease. Even with the cultural differences, there was little awkwardness and there were many things the newly acquainted twenty-somethings were able to talk about. There was a lot of common ground, one that was very poignant: both Dick and Kori had lost both their parents already. Dick's had died to an freak accident when he was a child and Kori lost her parents and brother during the Christmas Tsunami of 2004 while on vacation. But understanding each other's pain was hardly the only thing that bonded.
The more he looked at her and the more he spoke to her, the more Dick appreciated Kori's beauty and personality. When he looked into her green

Chapter 1
Great, just great. Dick Grayson thought as he pulled into the little Bed and Breakfast in the canyons outside of the of Jump City. Even with his military credentials, he couldn't get a flight out of San Diego to go home to Gotham for Christmas on such short notice. So he decided to make the drive to Jump City to take a commercial flight from there. A long pretty drive in California could give him time to think, so it seemed like a reasonable enough plan.
So who would have guessed that a freak once-in-a-century snowstorm would sock in the people of Jump? What was all this talk about global warming?

Interests
Larramy (1993-2011)

Goodnight Sweet Prince is overused, but my horse, Larramy, really was royalty, not that I had a thing to do with that.  This international show jumper, with a frequently stamped passport, fell into my life right after my father's death in 2007.  I really had no business at my age and health buying another horse - I hadn't had my own in 8 or 9 years at that point - but he was AMAZING.  The owner wanted him to have a nice retirement and he did.  And for the last four and a half years we've grown old together.

There were hopes of a resurgence of soundness of health for both of us, but it never quite happened for us as a team.  But he was still my buddy.  And it was not that he lacked human companionship in my absence; he never had a day go by without a cuddle or carrot. Everyone loved him, but he made it easy.

At 16.1 plus hh, he still carried some of the presence of a stallion - hell, he wasn't gelded until he was 11 - but was a complete gentlemen.  Anyone could be around him.  He was lovely.  I don't think I've ever known a kinder horse.

His career as a show horse didn't end either with us and he picked up quite a few ribbons as an equitation mount when he was sound and comfortable.  

And after showing was out, he had plenty of good days, and on those days he taught lessons - not just riding lessons, but life lessons too.  I'm sure I'll return to group of youngsters later in the week that hadn't had to deal with this lesson before: that you have to let them go with dignity.  I'll never know why he lost his sight so quickly - looking at him with a clinical eye today, brain tumor maybe? but it doesn't matter.  He couldn't be kept back in a stall away from his friends and his favorite field to graze in after all he had given all of us, and there is no way we could risk him being hurt.

So I said goodbye to my old friend today, Larramy, or Larry as we called this German born son of the great Burggraaf, thanked him for all that he had given us, freed him from the limitations of his aging body... so he could jump and run again free.
