His Brown Eyes Ch.1: Nightmares - B10k1. Nightmares
"Out of my way, boy!" A long, black tentacle wrapped itself around Devlin's waist before hurling him across the room. He gasped in pain as he hit the wall, tears staining his dark eyes. His own father didn't want him. Kevin 11,000 advanced towards his enemy, Ben 10,000, ready to exact his revenge; a feat that proved more important than the safety of his own flesh and blood.
There was a slam, and suddenly the room was filled with a bright light. Devlin rolled over, covering his face with his pillow as he squeezed his eyes further shut. "Go away," he mumbled sleepily, though silently thankful that his intruder had awoken him from his nightmare.
"Get up, you sleepyhead!" Kenny, his adopted brother, shouted, leaping onto Devlin's bed.
"Go away, Kenny!" he moaned, burrowing further into the warm

Please speak softly
For they will hear us
And they'll find out
Why we don't trust them
Hushed voices resounded through the old garage; bouncing off the stone walls and sounding like thunder against the still silence of the night. A green and black muscle car was pulled up in one of the spaces, and the rest of the cramped building was covered in various tools, alien tech, and empty smoothie containers. All this was normal, and to the naked eyes, nothing would seem amiss; not even the two figures present in the garage at this ungodly hour. There was, however, something very wrong.
Speak up dear
'Cause I cannot hear you
I need to know
Why we don't trust them
She had called him close to one in the morning, crying. He had barely been able to understand a thing she was saying, and he was tempted to slam down the receiver the minute she asked whether or not it was he. He

Tension hung thick and heavy like a damp woolen blanket over the small, white-washed room as the Team gazed nervously at their frozen teammate. While Batman continued to dress the fallen man's numerous wounds, the younger Team stood by in a way that could only be described as awkward, unsure of what to do or how to react. So much had happened in the last hour that was not according to any sort of plan or scenario they had ever trained for, and some of the newer heroes were vastly unprepared. Noticing this, the Dark Knight did the only thing he could: watch out for his own. "Robin, come help me with this," he asked quietly, hoping to distract at least his son from the worry that floated through the air like an annoying little firefly. The Boy Wonder nodded silently, obediently moving to aide his mentor with the task of clearing blood from their charge's face with a damp cloth and disinfectant. Carefully maneuvering himself around

When Batman reentered the hospital room, he found the manhis enemystruggling to stand at the side of the plastic-railed bed, one hand clutching at the scratchy sheets for some kind stability, the other out in front of him in an effort to balance. "You're being released into Justice League care after you've been deemed stable," the caped man scowled, making to move to help. Though he was capable of empathy, it was not his job to extent such a kindness to the villains he encountered on a daily basis. In the field, behavior like that could result in serious injury or, worse, fatalities. "A nurse should be in shortly to check your vitals."
"Yeah, okay," the injured man gasped through clenched teeth, glaring back at his companion despite knowing that he was in no position for such brash actions. With a curt nod, Batman left for the dim hallway once more, passing a small, brown-haired young

Have you ever wondered what the world would be like without its precious Batman to save it? Quite a thought, really--Gotham without the Dark Knight. Would anyone mourn, or would the people be grateful? What would become of the city? The Justice League? Robin? Imagine a day without the Bat. Now imagine a lifetime... Can you see the future, little bird? Because I can. And it's beautiful.
The man awoke with a jerk, shooting into a sitting position before crying out in pain and falling back into the pillows that surrounded him as an echo-y laugh continued to ring across his subconscious mind, playing on an endless loop that both terrified and annoyed him. He stifled a groan and squeezed his eyes shut against the light that surrounded him... patrol had been a nightmare the night before, and his body-wide agony must have contributed to the viciously twisted dream that followed soon after he had fallen into be
Wings of the Knight Ch. One - YJ Chapter One:
Inky darkness that enveloped the notorious city in more ways than one fell like a smothering blanket across cracked brick buildings that towered across an invisible skyline back dropped against the barely-existent light of the clouded half moon. Hours had passed since any human eye would have been able to discern an object farther than half an inch away, offering an inviting solace to the midnight-clad man lurking in the endless shadows high above the city's dilapidated streets. To him, the night was a welcome home that aided him in his eternal--yet at times precarious--quest for the lighter side of good and evil's the ever-changing balance, though this had not always been the case. Once, so long ago, he had feared the darkness; he had cowered like a child in the face of gloom before, in it, he had found the one thing he longed for most in the aftermath of tragedy--understanding, solace, family. And yet, as he grew in the darkness, it
