Let the Rain Fall
Time-Frame: V2, I imagine roughly between issues 13-14
Summary: It seems like things have been put to rest, but there’s still one person Billy has to face - the very same person he tried to bring back.
Warning: Based on some personal experience. M will know what I’m talking about.
The weather was anything but welcoming. It had been raining for days, and despite forecasts didn't seem to be letting up any time soon. For one young man staring up at the dark sky from inside his magical anti-rain bubble, it was the perfect setting, and a fitting mood-setter for the conclusion of the months-long quest he and his friends just conquered. Dark and depressing with the promise of sunshine that never came true. Aptly morbid, Billy thought and made his way through the Memorial Garden of Avengers Mansion. He made his rounds, paying his respects and spelling whatever dirt or wear he could away from the monuments. It's been a long time since he's last been there, he ju
The Least He Can Do - Young Avengers
Characters: Billy, Teddy
Time-Frame: Issue 9 of Gillen’s run
Summary: Billy’s POV from that one scene. You know the one.
In hindsight, Billy'd tell himself he saw it coming but fooled himself into thinking otherwise. After all, the setting was oh so perfect for it - the late hour, the dark street, the lamp overhead framing their little scene, and the rain, oh, the rain, a prelude, foreshadowing all the crying he would do later that night. Of course, if he were to be honest with himself, he'd admit the biggest clue was that he let himself be hopeful for a moment, that he let himself think things would work out - that he dared smile. Of course that was asking reality to laugh in his face, of course.
"That means you won't need me."
There's a moment of silent disbelief, as though the words have nothing to do with them. Neither says much, almost hoping for the rain to wash it away, but all it does is leave them wetter than a moment before. It's then Te

Bring it Tomorrow
"You forgot it?" Billy groaned in obvious displeasure. Teddy shifted uneasily, seeming remorseful.
"I put it by my bag last night... forgot to put it in, I guess. Sorry."
The item in question was one of Billy's favorite DVDs which he lent to Teddy several training sessions ago. That day was when Teddy promised to return it on - but alas.
"Well, it can't be helped." Billy said, breaking Teddy out of his miserable daze. "I suppose you'll have to bring it tomorrow."
Teddy blinked at the statement. "I thought we had the day off tomorrow?"
A bashful smile broke through Billy's stern mask. "...and?"
The pieces clicked together almost audibly and Teddy couldn't help but grin excitedly. "Same time, same place? No scratch that, there's this place I've been dying to show you."
Billy's smile widened as well and he lowered his hands to his hips. "Sounds like a plan."
"I missed you" Teddy purred and rubbed his cheek ag
Splotch of Red - Young Avengers
Characters: Usual Super Boyfriends
Time-Frame: Pre V2
Summary: It was just putting it on, right? He kept telling himself that, eyes set on the red fabric of his old cape.
He runs his hand over the fabric, fluid and smooth, like he remembers it should be. A finger slides through a hole, intentionally placed there to give the attire a certain style. Medieval and magical, he remembers thinking it was, at the time. He also recalls the long hours he stood in front of the mirror, idolizing his reflection with the bright red blowing behind him. He didn't hate the name but he loved the suit, this costume that set things apart from Billy Kaplan, turning him into his vigilante alter-ego. But that's all the former Wiccan has to show for himself - an old, unused outfit, rotting away in his closet.
He sighs, pinches the bridge of his nose as he tries to recall why he came to the closet to begin with.
This isn't the first time this happened, his stalling over this specifi
