1. She can RAP
2. she’s terrified of that thing you do, when you hide your arms in your sweatpants. THE THING. IT FREAKING LOOKS LIKE THE FRESNO NIGHTWALKERS. One time Tyler scared her with that (cause he didn’t know she was gay and he was hitting on her ok) and she hid inside the stinky locker room with a bunch of dirty jockstraps and wouldn’t come out.
3. Much like Dallas, Sara eats like a shrew. She can eat garbage food twice her weight and still be hungry. One time she sprayed cheese directly into her mouth. Cause? Paulina was looking Pretty Hot and she thought maybe her mouth stuffed with gooey cheese was hot. Yeah? No.
4. She’s a match for Poppy when it comes to roller derby.
5. She gets hot easily. Ick.
6. Got into a fight with some dude over green day. She barely escaped having a longboard smashed against her leg, because, fuck you, nobody talks shit about green day when Sara is around.
7. One time, whilst hiking, she found a REAL HUMAN EYE. Dallas didn’t have the heart to tell her it was just a jello eyeball.
8. She Is Lesbian
Warnings: Curse words..? If that’s a warning oops. And some violence.

Jughead watched as Y/N sat in the student lounge, alone on the couch. She had been acting weird lately, and he was worried. She didn’t call him as much anymore, most of the time it took ages for her to text him back, and she had canceled quite a few dates in these last few weeks. He was worried she was going to leave him, or even worse, that things were getting worse for her. Jason Blossom was one of her best friends surprisingly enough, so his death hit her very hard. The following weeks of his murder is when she started acting weird, maybe it was still affecting her. He walked over to his girlfriend and sat beside her and she smiled up at him, closing her laptop. Like him, she was always writing on her laptop, but she never told him what she was writing. Anytime he got a glimpse of what it was, she was either writing an email or writing notes, but he never knew on what.
“Hey Juggie.” she grabbed his hand, and he pulled her into him.
“Hey Y/N/N.” he was never one for PDA, but today he made an exception, leaning down and kissing Y/N. Reggie called from the other side of the lounge, and made his way over, his football numbskulls following.
“Y/N, I never knew you, pretty much queen bee of the school and Donny Darko were a thing.” he said, and she glared at him. “How long?”
“A few months.” She said, taking Jugheads hand and squeezing it. Reggie gave an impressed look Jugheads way and nodded his head.
“So Jason was cool with this?” He asked, and Jughead noticed as Y/Ns grip tightened and her jaw clenched, and he could tell she was fighting back tears. No one ever really mentioned Jason around her, let alone ask her directly about him.
“Of course.” she said quietly. Reggie nodded again, and walked directly up to Jughead. He extended his hand, and Jughead took it and stood up, and Reggie shook his hand.
“Jason was like Y/Ns older brother, and so am I. If Jason approved of you, then I guess that means I do too. Welcome to the family, Jughead. I guess i didn’t give you enough credit man, you’ve got the prettiest girl in this school as your girlfriend. I’m impressed.” Jughead nodded his head and tried to pull away from Reggie, but Reggie pulled him into a hug. He yanked the beanie off Jugheads head and ruffled his hair. Y/N sat laughing on the couch as she watched Jugheads unamused face. she grabbed his beanie off the arm of the couch and put it on.
“Alright Reggie, I think I’ve had enough.” Jughead said, sitting back down on the couch, and Reggie just laughed.
“One last thing, Jughead. If you hurt my baby sister, you can count on not just me, but the whole football team coming after your ass.” Reggie said, and all the boys behind him agreed.
“Oh come on Reg. Leave him be.” Y/N said, glaring at him.
“No it’s fine, Y/N/N. I get it, he’s just looking out for you.” Jughead said. Reggie nodded his head and leaned over, kissing Y/N on the forehead.
“Damn right, you’re my baby sister.” he said and Y/N rolled her eyes. Reggie started for the door to leave and he turned around right before exiting to make one last, no doubt obnoxious comment. “Jughead Jones, Jughead Jones!” he chanted, backing out of the lounge. Jughead and Y/N sat on the couch, listening to the fading sound of Jugheads name being chanted, and she turned to him.
“That actually went so much better than I imagined.” she laughed, and Jughead rolled his eyes. “Soon, you’ll be one of the jocks.”
“Oh you know it.” he said laughing. “Maybe I’ll even get a letterman jacket, just for being your boyfriend.”
“Definitely, how cool will that be?” she teased.
“Very.” He said, pulling her into him. It was then he noticed his beanie on her head, and he couldn’t help but admire her in it. It looked quite adorable placed over her (Y/H/C) curled hair. “Maybe I should let you wear that more often.” he said, smiling down at her.
“Oh you mean your beanie? Yeah I look pretty cute in it.” she beamed, causing him to chuckle.
“Can I have it back for right now though?” he asked and she pretended to think about it for a second.
“How about no.” she joked. “I think you look cute with your hair out all messy like this.” She said, ruffling his hair. He grabbed her wrist and pulled her into a kiss, and took the beanie off her head. “No!” She yelled, reaching for it, but he put it in his head, and she slumped in her seat and tried to pout.
“So we’re going to pout now?” He asked, grabbing her chin and turning her to face him. She couldn’t help but smile, and she sat up reaching up for the beanie again. Jughead leaned back, avoiding her grasp. “Oh no you don’t.”
“No I have to fix it!” She exclaimed. “You don’t have your little hair curls coming out and that’s my favourite part!” Jughead leaned forward, and she fixed his hair, and then kissed him on the forehead. “Perfect.” she said.
“Oh so I wasn’t perfect before?” he teased and she rolled her eyes.
“Don’t start Jones, you know that I think you are.” she laughed and stood up, packing her laptop into her bag.
“Where are you going?” he asked, standing up as well, grabbing her by the waist.
“I’m going to go get coffee, I need it.” she said.
“Another sleepless night?” He asked, giving her a worried look and she looked behind him, and leaned her head on his shoulder.
“Yeah.” She sighed and he kissed her head. She leaned up and looked at him. “Do you want anything?” She asked.
“I want a coffee to match my soul, dark and strong.” he teased and she rolled her eyes.
“So a white chocolate mocha, got it.” she said, and his eyes widened, surprised by her joke. Jughead and Y/N looked towards the door to find Archie, Veronica, Betty, Cheryl and Kevin laughing.
“Ouch.” Kevin laughed. “She got you.”
“You’re just gonna take that?” Archie asked trying to catch his breath.
“He has to, its the truth.” Y/N piped in smiling proudly. Just then her phone went off, signaling to her she received a text message. She opened it and Jughead saw her face fall. “Alright, I-uh. I have to go, I’ll see you…all later.” she stuttered, obviously distracted by the text. She backed out of the lounge, furiously texting back.
“What was that about?” Veronica asked Jughead, but he just shook his head.
“I don’t know, I’m just as confused as all of you.” he said, sinking into the couch.
“Have you tried asking? I mean you are her boyfriend, you’d think she’d tell you.” Veronica pointed out, but again Jughead shook his head.
“Well if it’s something she doesn’t want to talk about I can’t press her to tell me.” he said, and everyone nodded their heads.
“She was super close to me and Jason at one point, maybe she’ll talk to me. Especially if it has something to do with my brother, me and her are practically sisters.” Cheryl said, taking a seat on the arm of the couch.
“We are all very close to Y/N, we can’t force her to tell us anything. She will tell us when she’s ready. And I’m sure she’ll tell us soon.” Betty reassured.
“What if she’s waiting for someone to ask. Trust me, sometimes it’s hard to ask for help, especially when it has something to do with death. Maybe she just needs to be asked.” Cheryl politely argued.
“Y/N is usually an open book when it comes to her feelings, and I’ve noticed her distancing herself from us and her feelings lately. It’s worrying.” Kevin added. “And it really sucks too because I miss hanging out with her.” Kevin sighed, and Betty patted his back.
“We all miss being around her, Kevin.” Betty gave a small smile to the group, and everyone nodded.
“Has she been distancing herself from you, Jug?” Archie asked, turning his attention to the boy practically laying on the couch. Jughead said nothing, but continued to tap on his phone. “Jughead.” Archie called, and his gaze shot up.
“Huh?” he asked, looking between everyone in the group.
“You okay?” Archie asked, giving a worried expression Jugheads way.
“I’m just texting Y/N and trying to see if she’s okay. I’m worried about her lately, she hardly hangs out with me anymore,” he huffed.
“Well that answers our question.” Cheryl said, moving Jugheads feet off the couch to sit herself down.
“Where’d she say she was going?” Archie asked, and Jughead scratched the back of his head.
“Some coffee shop, she didn’t say where.” he sighed. “I’m really worried about her, especially because of how she acted when she was leaving.”
“Yeah that was super sketchy.” Veronica said. Archie stood up and grabbed his belongings.
“Come on Jug, we’re leaving.” he said, pulling Jughead off the couch.
“Leaving where?” Jughead asked, standing up and grabbing his stuff as well.
“We’re going to go find Y/N.” he said walking to the door, and Jughead stopped in his tracks.
“We are not stalking my girlfriend.” he said, crossing his arms over his chest. “I just got Reggies approval, and I’m not going to ruin it by freaking her out so bad she breaks up with me. Reggie would kick my ass and I’d be out the best thing that’s happened to me.” Betty, Veronica, Cheryl and even Kevin simultaneously went ‘awe’ and Jughead blushed.
“Look at our Jughead today, all PDA-y with Y/N, showing everyone how in love with her he is.” Kevin teased. In that moment Veronica had a mini freak out.
“Have you told her you loved her yet?” she yelled, running over to Jughead.
“No, I haven’t.” Jughead said.
“Why not!” Veronica exclaimed, giving Jughead a slight push.
“We’ve only been dating a few months-” Jughead started.
“Who cares? Ever since I moved here I could tell you two were a match written in the stars.” She said and Jughead blushed furiously.
“Are you coming or not?” Archie asked, slightly annoyed, and Jugheads attention went back to him. He sighed and checked his phone again, but saw he had no messages from her.
“Let’s go.” he mumbled, following Archie out to his car.
“Are you the one who texted me?” Y/N asked, trying her best to sound assertive and confident, even though she was terrified. Jason’s death took the whole town by a surprise, and it worsened when it was found out he was murdered. But no one besides his immediate family took it as hard as Y/N. Jason had been her best friend for as long as she could remember. She grew up with him and Cheryl, and people joked that the three of them together were the Blossom triplets. Jason had told Y/N about his plans to disappear, and she completely disagreed with them. In fact, they had gotten into their first major argument over it, and before they could patch things up, Jason left and was later found murdered. It crushed Y/N, and in some ways it felt as if it was her fault. She couldn’t talk him out of it, she didn’t go to the river with them that day, and she couldn’t save him. What hurt the most is that he died before she could apologize for the things she said during the argument, she couldn’t make up with her brother. Most likely he died hating her, or even worse, thinking she hated him.
“Did you come alone?” the man asked.
“That’s what you told me to do.” Y/N answered, taking a step closer to the river and the man. Okay so maybe meeting some strange man whom she didn’t know in the very place her brother died wasn’t a good idea, but he said he had information about Jason and his death, and she couldn’t let that go. She took it upon herself to solve this, to avenge Jason as one last favor to him. Sure, she could have worked with Jughead and Betty on their murder board and helped them try to solve it, but she knew this could get dangerous. She didn’t want them to get hurt, and she knew she had to do this alone.
“Look, I don’t have a lot of time.” the man said, turning to face Y/N. “the other serpents are already suspicious of me enough, I don’t need them finding out that I know something about Jason’s death, or that I’m telling a high school student about it by the river. I’m not even supposed to know any of this.” he said, looking around the woods, motioning for Y/N to get nearer. She hesitantly stepped forward, and got closer to the man. He was much bigger than her, about 6 foot 4", broad shoulders, and she noticed his worn and tired eyes, some that had definitely seen some shit.
“You can tell me, I won’t tell a soul where my information came from. This is purely just for me.” she assured the man, and he nodded.
“I’ve heard Momma and Poppa Blossom hired a serpent to take out Jason. They found out the Cooper girl was pregnant and got wind of his plan to run off with her, and they weren’t having any of it. Jason was their star child, excelling at football and even music, and if he dropped out of high school to run off with his impregnated girlfriend, it would ruin the family name. They couldn’t control their child, no matter how much they tried, so they arranged to have him 'disappear’. A murder in the family was better off for the Blossom name than letting their child live a happy life with his kid and girlfriend I suppose.” the man said, practically whispering. Y/N stood there stunned, waiting for the man to say more.
“Is there anything else?” she asked.
“They’re on damage control I guess. They have Cheryl on a tight leash from what I hear, trying to keep the other twin under control and to prevent her from poking around. I’m surprised they haven’t put you on the same one, considering how closely tied you are to the family, you’re practically their child.” the man stopped after a crack of a branch was heard, and he ducked down behind some rocks, pulling you down with him.
“Look kid, I know all of that just sounds like talk, but us serpents have a way of doing business. If any kind of deal occurred, no matter how illegal, it’s written down somewhere. Email, letter, even a text message. You’re more likely to find it on the Blossoms side, because they aren’t as careful as the serpents, but we keep track of everything, so I’ll see if I can dig around. If you find anything though, let me know.” he said, and Y/N nodded her head.
“I will, just one more thi-” another crack of a branch and then a gunshot rang off, sending the man in front of her to the ground. Y/N went to scream, but her voice shut down, and she stumbled back. A stream of red flowed from the man and down into the river, tinting the water. Y/N got up from her feet and ran through the trees to where her car was, but was quickly thrown off course when a bullet flew by her head, just barely missing her. She fell to the side, and closed her eyes trying to regain her thoughts. A text message brought her out of her head, and she saw it was from Jughead.
Juggie <3: Get up and run forward, me and Archie are waiting, but please hurry.
Y/N looked up and saw a familiar car through the trees. She got up and ran as fast as she could. When she was a few feet from the car, Jughead opened the back door and she quickly threw herself in, and Archie sped off before Jughead even had the chance to close the door. The car ride was silent as Archie sped down the road, doing his best to get the hell out of the woods as fast as he could.
“What the fuck was that about?” Jughead asked angrily, breaking the silence.
“Are you okay? I heard gunshots.” Archie asked, turning his head to look at her for a second before giving his attention back to the road.
“Fuck,” Y/N mumbled, pulling a disposable phone out of her backpack and calling 911.
“911, what’s your emergency?” The lady on the other end asked.
“There’s been a shooting by the river, near where Jason Blossom was found. One man shot and is bleeding out. I don’t know how long he had but he needs help.” Y/N said, trying to stay calm, but the anxiety in her stomach was bubbling up.
“Ma'am, did you see who shot him? Do you know who he is?”
“No, I didn’t see, they were shooting after me too, and I was too busy trying to run away. And I’m not sure who he is, I just need him to be okay!” she yelled. “Just please get to him.” she begged. She closed the phone, and threw it out the window, and slumped back into her seat.
“What the hell were you doing?” Jughead asked again, and Y/N looked over to him and then to Archie.
“Investigating Jason’s death.” she mumbled.
“In the woods with a man you had never met?” Jughead yelled, and Y/N looked away from him. “I shouldn’t have to tell you that that is a bad idea! What if you had gotten yourself killed, or what if that was Jason’s murderer you met?” Jughead grabbed Y/Ns face and turned her head to look at him. “Look at me when I’m talking to you!” he yelled. “I love you Y/N, more than I love anything else in this whole damned world. What if you had gotten killed? Who is that going to help? Now instead if just one dead boy, we’d have two kids dead.”
“Just one dead boy? Jason is more than just one dead boy, Jughead! He was my brother, and I have to figure out what happened to him! And I’m onto something, I can do it. So what I almost got killed today, I didn’t. I’ll be fine!” she yelled back.
“Then let me help you, please.” Jughead begged, lowering his voice. “I can’t let you do this on your own, your smart and your tactical but you need backup.” Y/N watched tears roll down his face, and she cupped his cheek.
“Jughead, I love you too, and that’s why I need you to stay out of this. I can’t have you get hurt-” he put his hand over her hand that was on his cheek.
“I can’t let you get hurt either. We both go, or no one does, those are your options Y/N.” he said, and she signed.
“Fine.” she mumbled, and Jughead pulled her into a dizzying kiss.
“You’re including me in this too, just so you know.” Archie said, breaking Y/N and Jughead apart.
“Archie no-” she started.
“You can’t say no to me, I know too much now. I want in.” he said and Y/N looked over to Jughead.
“Fine, you can be our chauffeur.” Jughead teased.
“Nice try, but no. I’m going to help you with investigating.”
“Well boys, since you’re now on the case with me, I guess I should tell you what I know. And I’ll start with my newest lead.” she said, pulling out her phone. She opened the recording app, and pressed the newest file. Just then Y/and voice boomed throughout the car, and she visibly cringed at the sound of it, and Jughead rolled his eyes at her. She shrugged her shoulders and turned her attention back to the recording.
“Testing testing, alight, I think it’s recording. My name is Y/N Y/L/N, and I’m on my way to meet with someone from the serpents that can give me a lead on Jason Blossoms murder. There the man is now.

First Halloween - Young Justice Imagine/Wally West x Reader
Requested by Anon - one where the reader is an alien and has never experienced a Halloween and the team go full out trying to show the the best time. Also if there needs to be a pairing can it be wally?
Author’s Note - Assume this is after season one, so everyone on the team has experience Halloween, except for the reader.
It all started when you were sitting in the kitchen, listening to the other team members talk about their plans for Halloween. They were excited, especially Wally. Wally was almost bouncing off the walls as he rambled on about decorating the cave, trick-or-treating, and haunted houses.
While you knew what Halloween was on a basic level for it was in your lessons with Red Tornado about Earth culture, you didn’t understand what the fuss was about. On your planet, many light years away, you didn’t have a holiday where people would give out free candy and scare one another. The whole idea of it was strange to you, but that didn’t mean you weren’t willing to learn.
“So (Y/N),” Wally cooed, suddenly appearing beside you with a gust of wind. “What are you going to do for Halloween?”
“Um,” you began, shifting around nervously in your chair when you felt the entire team looking at you. “I don’t really know.”
“Wait, (Y/N),” M’gann said, sitting down on your other side. “This would be your first Halloween on Earth, right?”
“Yes,” you answered honestly. “We don’t have a holiday such as Halloween on my planet.” A silence filled the room as Wally grabbed your hand in both of his. He leaned uncomfortably close to your face, making you back up until you bumped into M’gann. You felt your cheeks burn with embarrassment.
“Don’t worry, Babe,” Wally promised with a seriousness that seemed to borderline ridiculousness. Robin, Zatanna, Rocket, Artemis, and M’gann giggled at the sight while Kaldur just smiled. Conner appeared confused. Wally didn’t react to them at all. “I’ll help you celebrate your first Halloween.”
You blinked at him, not knowing what to say. “Thank you,” you mumbled, the confusion on your face only made the others laugh louder. Wally suddenly dropped your hand, appearing in the center of the room to look at the rest of the team with determination.
“Guys, cancel your plans. We have to make sure (Y/N) has the greatest Halloween ever,” Wally announced, meeting each of the team’s eyes.
“Um, how about no?” Robin replied, grinning evilly at Wally when Wally sent him a desperate look. Robin leaned to the side to give you a small smile. “No offense, (Y/N).”
“Oh, none taken. I don’t expect you all to cancel your plans for me,” you reasoned, pursing your lips when Wally started making weird anguished expressions at the team. You really didn’t understand him at times. However, everyone else seemed to understand it, smiling teasingly at him.
“Rob, you’re not helping here,” Wally growled at Robin before turning to Kaldur. “Kaldur, you see how important this is. After all (Y/N) is our teammate and needs to experience human culture.”
Kaldur simply raised an eyebrow. “I do not believe that would require the presence of the whole team.” Wally frowned at him.
“Well,” Rocket spoke up, deciding to take pity on Wally. “I think it would be a good team building exercise.”
“Yes,” Wally cheered, speeding over to give Rocket a hug. He spun her around until she threatened to hurl. Dropping her quickly, Wally turned his begging eyes over to the rest of the team. You didn’t understand why he was so desperate for the rest of the team to join in, but you did find yourself wanting everyone to join if Wally was going to help you celebrate the holiday. Celebrating was always fun with more people.
“Okay, only because I didn’t have important plans anyway,” Artemis agreed, reaching over to punch Wally’s arm. Zatanna nodded along with her, having lost the battle with Wally’s puppy dog eyes.
M’gann put her hands on your shoulders to gain your attention. Wally’s eyes followed her movement as M’gann looked over at Conner. “Conner and I will join in,” she answered before telepathically telling you they were planning to help you celebrate anyway. You didn’t see the point of not saying that right away, but you just decided to smile at her in gratitude.
Seeing that M’gann and Conner were in, Wally turned to Robin and Kaldur. Kaldur broke right away, simply nodding his consent while Robin continued to stare down Wally. Robin kept looking at Wally before glancing over at you as if trying to hint at something. You didn’t understand, but Wally must of since his face turned as red as his hair.
“Fine, I’m in,” Robin admitted at last, smirking at Wally’s red face. Wally swallowed hard before turning to give you a bright smile.
“You’re going to have the best first Halloween ever, (Y/N),” he cried before he sped out of the room. His face was still bright red. Everyone watched him go with amusement while you stayed confused.
“Does he always act like that?” you asked, glancing over at M’gann. You figured she would give you a straight answer, but instead she shrugged. Robin snickered causing you to look at him.
“Yeah, pretty much,” Robin answered, grinning like a mad man. The rest of the team shared a secret glance as if they had some kind of inside joke. You didn’t understand, making a mental note to ask Red Tornado about this conversation afterwards. After all, you had never been so confused in your life.
“The first thing we need to do is make Jack-o’-lanterns,” Wally announced, stumbling in with a mountain of mini pumpkins in his arms. You took one of them out of his arms, holding up to inspect it.
“They’re adorable,” you murmured with a sparkle in your eye. Wally got a goofy smile on his face as he watched you admiring the pumpkin. He set the rest of the pumpkins on the table.
“Aren’t they a little small?” Artemis asked, raising an eyebrow at Wally. Wally frowned before flicking her in the nose. She smacked his hand.
“It’s what I could do on short notice,” Wally growled at her before turning back to you.
You were still staring at the little pumpkin in wonder. Feeling everyone’s eyes on you, you quickly set the pumpkin down with the rest. You looked at the ground, biting your lip for a moment before glancing back up at Wally. “What do we do to make Jack-lanterns?”
“It’s Jack-o’-lanterns, and it’s very simple…” Wally instructed. Soon, everyone was cutting their own little pumpkin.
However as you craved a little smile into your pumpkin, a question entered your mind. “Wally?” you asked since he was sitting at your side to help you with your pumpkin. He hummed, absorbed in watching you work on your pumpkin instead of working on his own. “What do we do with the Jack-o’-lanterns when Halloween is over?”
“Oh, we usually just throw them out,” Wally answered calmly, freezing when he saw the horror on your face.
“You mean we waste them?” you gasped in horror, gazing at the pumpkin with sorrowful eyes. Wally looked at the rest of the team for help, panicked. However, the rest of the team was too amused to offer him any assistance.
“We…um…I…um,” Wally stammered, not knowing what to say. His cheeks were blushing again, redder than ever.
“We don’t have to throw them out, (Y/N). We could cut them up afterwards to make pumpkin pie,” M’gann suggested, taking pity on Wally. You and Wally both breathed a sigh of relief, but for different reasons.
“So, I pick one?” you asked uncertainly as Wally pointed at the aisle filled to the brink with Halloween costumes. You were at the costume store with Wally. The others remained at the cave. Wally had insisted you both go alone after Robin whispered to him about something. You didn’t understand, but you were finding you didn’t understand a lot about these people.
“Yep, anyone you like,” Wally answered, giving you a charming smile. He blushed, leading you into the aisle.
You followed, looking at the costumes, frowning when you didn’t recognize most of them. Perhaps you should focus on learning more about Earth culture, you wondered as Wally stopped to see what you were staring at.
“Um (Y/N), why don’t we look down here?” Wally insisted, pulling you down the aisle. His face was red again. You looked at him confused.
“But Wally, why does the female cop costume consist of barely any clothing?” you asked as Wally choked.
“I don’t know (Y/N),” Wally stuttered, not meeting your eye. He pulled you towards costumes that would fit your size. You still didn’t recognize any of them until your eyes landed on one you finally knew.
“Robin Hood,” you cried, pulling down the costume. “Can I be Robin Hood, Wally?”
Wally looked at the costume before swallowing hard. “Sure, you can be Robin Hood,” he answered, holding back his comment about how the costume closely resembled Green Arrow. Wally figured if you wanted to be Robin Hood, you could be Robin Hood. Suddenly, an idea popped into his head as he noticed a Little John costume.
“Hey, (Y/N),” Wally began as you studied the Robin Hood costume with fascination. Wally lost his breath for a second when you looked at him with bright eyes. “…do you think I should be Little John?”
You blinked at him. “Then we would be matching?”
“Yeah,” Wally said cheerily, his face falling slightly when you didn’t react. “People do that on Halloween, (Y/N). People who want other people to know they’re ‘friends’ dress up in costumes that match. It’s called couple’s costumes.” Your face brightened as you absorbed his words.
“Oh, I understand now,” you remarked, grinning at Wally. Wally started blushing again as you continued. “You can be Little John, Wally. Everyone will know we are friends.”
Wally grinned with a hint of something else hidden in his smile. “Yeah, everyone will know.”
Suddenly, before you knew it, you found yourself in your Robin Hood costume walking around Happy Harbor collecting candy from all the houses. Everyone else was dressed up too. Wally was in his Little John costume. The rest of the team kept smirking at him when he appeared in his costume. You thought they were being mean, but Robin insisted it was for a different reason entirely.
Despite your confusion with the actions of the team, you found yourself with a giant canvas bag filled to the brink with candy. It was so heavy, Conner had to carry it for you. Wally didn’t seem too happy about that, insisting you drop off your candy at the cave before everyone went on to the next activity. You agreed, simply because you would find yourself eating too much candy if it stayed with you.
After trick or treating, Wally dragged you all to a Halloween carnival complete with haunted houses, amusement rides, and games. You all went to the haunted houses first.
The first house was okay, because the theme was aliens. You and M’gann were giggling the whole time since their idea of aliens was so bizarre. However, in the second house, which was supposed to be insane asylum, you freaked out.
Everything was fine until you all reached a medical examination room with a doctor ripping the skin off of a living person. You were grossed out by it, but you were fine until the lights suddenly flickered and went out. After standing in the dark for a moment or two, the lights came back on only to find the skinless person standing right in front of you. You screamed, bursting into tears as you spun to cling to the person behind you.
They guided you outside of the haunted house through one of the emergency exits and to a bench a distance away from the house.
“You are outside now, (Y/N),” Kaldur, the one who you grabbed apparently, soothed as you tried to stop your tears. The rest of the team gathered around you, forming a protective circle around you.
Wally stood off to the side, seething from the idea you grabbed Kaldur instead of him. After all, he was in front of you, you should have grabbed him first, not Kaldur.
Artemis and Rocket noticed his sulking, walking over to talk to him.
You didn’t notice that however as you finally calmed down. “I’m sorry,” you mumbled, wiping your tears on a napkin Robin gave you.
“It’s okay, (Y/N). I was scared like this the first time I went through a haunted house too,” Zatanna comforted. “Trust me, your reaction was normal.”
“Is it okay if I don’t want to go back in there?” you asked timidly, glancing to see Wally’s brooding with Rocket and Artemis scolding him. “I don’t want Wally to be mad at me, since he went to so much trouble to make sure I get a full experience.”
The rest of the team looked over at Wally before returning their focus onto you.
“Oh don’t worry about Wally. He’s just healing his bruised ego,” Robin snickered as your brow furrowed in confusion. “There a lot of other things we could do here.”
Wally perked up at Robin’s words, speeding over to appear at your side with a gust of wind. “So much for secret identities,” Conner commented as the team glanced around to see if anyone noticed Wally’s super speed.
“Yeah, (Y/N), there is a lot we could do,” Wally exclaimed brightly, making you flinch at the volume of his voice. He grabbed your hand, dragging you away from the team and towards a food stand. “Let’s start with eating. I’m starving.”
You glanced back at the team, not understanding when they simply smiled at you both in amusement. “What about the others?” you asked, uncertainly.
“Oh, they’ll catch up, or get lost,” Wally mumbled before pulling you forward to link arms with you. “After all, I need to make sure you have the best Halloween ever, right?”
“Right,” you replied with a tiny smile as Wally went on to explain the different types of foods.
The night progressed much better after that as Wally introduced you to new food,
games, and amusement rides. Wally even won you a giant ghost plushy.
Finally, just about when the night was over, Wally dragged you over to the Ferris Wheel.
“This is a special ride,” Wally explained as you waited in line.
“Why?” you asked, hugging your plush ghost to your chest. You gazed up at the tall ride in wonder. Wally watched your face with adoration.
“You’ll see when we get to the top,” Wally promised, jumping onto the chair once the ride operator opened the gate. You followed him, sitting down gently on the rocking seat. The bar secured you both inside before it started flying upward.
You laughed in amazement making a goofy smile appear on Wally’s face. Finally, the ride stopped once you reached the top.
“Wow, you can see everything,” you whispered, awed by all the lights of the city below.
“Yeah,” Wally coughed, his eyes were resting on you. “Hey (Y/N), do you want to know why this ride is so special?”
“You mean it isn’t because of the view?” you wondered, glancing over at Wally to find his face inches from yours. Suddenly, his lips pressed lightly against yours.
You didn’t know what to do, so you pulled back. Your eyes growing wide as you tried to understand what Wally just did. Wally blushed, frowning when you didn’t react.
“(Y/N)? That was okay, right? You’re not offended or anything?” Wally asked uncertainly, studying you as the ride restarted taking you back down to the bottom. You continued to stare at him, gently touching your lips with your hand. Suddenly, his actions finally made sense.
Giving him a big smile, you leaned towards him to press your lips against his. Wally gasped in surprise before returning the kiss.
“Hey Wally, quit harassing (Y/N) and get off the ride,” Robin’s voice interrupted, making both you and Wally jump apart. Wally quickly grabbed your hand, dragging you off the ride to meet the rest of the team who were waiting at the ride’s exit. You hid your face into your ghost plushy.
“Why didn’t Wally just do that in the first place? We would have saved so much time,” Conner remarked before M’gann nudged him in the stomach.
“Are we ready to depart now?” Kaldur asked, giving Wally an amused smile.
“Yeah, I think we’re good,” Wally commented, sheepish rubbing the back of his head. Red dusted his cheeks as he glanced over at your hidden face. “Do you feel like you got the full Halloween experience, (Y/N)?”
You giggled before nodding your head. Somehow, you felt that you hadn’t just learned about Halloween. You also learned the art of Earthling romance.
