Expedition 52 Begins Aboard Space Station

When humans launch to the International Space Station, they are members of expeditions. An expedition is long duration stay on the space station. The first expedition started when the crew docked to the station on Nov. 2, 2000.

Expedition 52 began in June 2017 aboard the orbiting laboratory and will end in September 2017. 

FUN FACT: Each Expedition begins with the undocking of the spacecraft carrying the departing crew from the previous Expedition. So Expedition 52 began with the undocking of the Soyuz MS-03 spacecraft that brought Expedition 51 crew members Oleg Novitskiy and Thomas Pesquet back to Earth, leaving NASA astronauts Peggy Whitson and Jack Fischer and Roscosmos cosmonaut Fyodor Yurchikhin aboard the station to await the arrival of the rest of the Expedition 52 crew in July.

This expedition includes dozens of out of this world science investigations and a crew that takes #SquadGoals to a whole new level. 

Take a look below to get to know the crew members and some of the science that will occur during the space station’s 52nd expedition.

What will the crew be doing during Expedition 52?

In addition to one tentatively planned spacewalk, crew members will conduct scientific investigations that will demonstrate more efficient solar arrays, study the physics of neutron stars, study a new drug to fight osteoporosis and study the adverse effects of prolonged exposure to microgravity on the heart.

Roll-Out Solar Array (ROSA)

Solar panels are an efficient way to generate power, but they can be delicate and large when used to power a spacecraft or satellites. They are often tightly stowed for launch and then must be unfolded when the spacecraft reaches orbit.

The Roll-Out Solar Array (ROSA), is a solar panel concept that is lighter and stores more compactly for launch than the rigid solar panels currently in use. ROSA has solar cells on a flexible blanket and a framework that rolls out like a tape measure.  

Neutron Star Interior Composition Explored (NICER)

Neutron stars, the glowing cinders left behind when massive stars explode as supernovas, are the densest objects in the universe, and contain exotic states of matter that are impossible to replicate in any ground lab.

The Neutron Star Interior Composition Explored (NICER) payload, affixed to the exterior of the space station, studies the physics of these stars, providing new insight into their nature and behavior.

Systemic Therapy of NELL-1 for Osteoporosis (Rodent Research-5)

When people and animals spend extended periods of time in space, they experience bone density loss. The Systemic Therapy of NELL-1 for osteoporosis (Rodent Research-5) investigation tests a new drug that can both rebuild bone and block further bone loss, improving health for crew members.

Fruit Fly Lab-02

Exposure to reduced gravity environments can result in cardiovascular changes such as fluid shifts, changes in total blood volume, heartbeat and heart rhythm irregularities, and diminished aerobic capacity. The Fruit Fly Lab-02 study will use the fruit fly (Drosophila melanogaster) to better understand the underlying mechanisms responsible for the adverse effects of prolonged exposure to microgravity on the heart.

Watch their progress HERE!

Expedition 52 Mission Patch 

Our planet is shown surrounded by an imaginary constellation shaped like a house, depicting the theme of the patch: “The Earth is our home.” It is our precious cradle, to be preserved for all future generations. The house of stars just touches the Moon, acknowledging the first steps we have already taken there, while Mars is not far away, just beyond the International Space Station, symbolized by the Roman numeral “LII,” signifying the expedition number. 

The planets Saturn and Jupiter, seen orbiting farther away, symbolize humanity’s exploration of deeper space, which will begin soon. A small Sputnik is seen circling the Earth on the same orbit with the space station, bridging the beginning of our cosmic quest till now: Expedition 52 will launch in 2017, sixty years after that first satellite. Two groups of crew names signify the pair of Soyuz vehicles that will launch the astronauts of Expedition 52 to the Station.

Xeno (Prologue)

Plot: The best part about being an assistant in a lab was watching all new inventions come to life, although sometimes some of them fail, leaving them away in a storage room, never to be bothered with; free for the taking.

Pairing: Kim Taehyung x Reader | (Eventual) other BTS member x Reader

Genre: Fluff, (eventual)Smut, Futuristic au!

Notes: My first actual series I have been planning for a few days now (still going through some planning, but I will eventually properly storyboard). I *hope* people would like this, and even though there is a lot of plagiarism going around, I’m still going ahead and doing it.

This is just the preview, and I shall only post if I get a good amount of support for it.

Year - 2850 A.D. 

The technological evolution hit a full swing back in 2690, and it wasn’t slowing down. Almost 200 years later, and scientists were still creating new inventions. Every major city on the planet had become a Utopia; cars were flying; a few labs were even close to cracking the secrets of teleportation.

That was what inspired you to take your current profession. You wanted to make the world a better place; create something which would make people love and reward you. 

You wanted to be like Kim Namjoon – who invented a quick-healing serum; or Kim Seokjin – who made advancements to cosmetic science with the help of Min Yoongi, who had invented something which used sound waves to change eye color.

All you needed was one chance.

Unfortunately, you were nothing but a helper, and you hated it. You loved that you were working in a lab; you loved that you got to stay there 24/7; but you didn’t like that the older scientists never trusted you with anything more complicated than a wrench. Sometimes – very rarely – they would let you program things, but that definitely wasn’t worth the four years of the technology course in MIT.

“Y/N, I need you to take experiment number 2390 to storage, then you are dismissed.”

“Alright, have a good evening.”

Yet another unproductive day. You couldn’t complain, though – you had been there for only 6 months. Having programmed the commands for the new speed train was a lot for someone who was just a rookie; but you practically burned with ambition to do more. You wanted to impress people, show your seniors that you were capable.

You let out a small huff of annoyance as you walked down the bright hall, the failed freeze gun in your grasp. The only reason it failed was because one of the lab techs managed to puncture the liquid nitrogen capsule which went into it – the object was almost like a block of ice, freezing from the inside out. You had rushed over to the very back of the room to keep it on one of the shelves; you certainly did not want to develop frostbite.

Letting out a satisfied huff, you rubbed your palms together to generate some heat. Finally, you day was done and you could go home – until a blue light flickered against your eye, distracting you from your plans. It wasn’t like the other lights – it was mysterious, and it intrigued you.

You know what they said – Curiosity killed the cat, but satisfaction brought it back.

That was a quote you lived by as soon as you went into this field. You were like a bug attracted to a lightbulb, making a beeline towards the source, which was just around a corner. What you didn’t expect, was for your answer to be something you had practically deemed as impossible.

A robot??

Your surprised hues ran over him – well – it. A physically beautiful male, facial features sculpted to perfection, neon blue circuit board traces running up his collar and down to his stomach from the left side of his chest. He looked so calm, like he was asleep.

No, it couldn’t be.. He looked too human.

“Woah..” You breathed, observing the creation harbored within the glowing blue capsule.

Only one thought ran through your mind the second you had realized that he was considered a failed experiment –

Take him.


PokémonMorphology - Dragonite.

My second set, as it’s my favourite Pokémon. 

I worked on making this set a bit more refined, and a bit more creative. Whilst the designs out there are superb, I wanted to push for more body shape differences then simply swapping the colours. Hopefully this will flesh out a more realistic Pokémon world a bit more. 

I have attached the text to the pictures and made them a bit more scientific, as people kept deleting the flavour text, but it’s also attached below. Please don’t delete it :)



The Common Dragonite is the most plentiful and registered breed found to date. It is categorised by an equal balance of wingspan, limb size and tail size, being adapted for life both on the land and at sea for extended periods of time. It is also an incredible flyer, known to rise to great heights in order to circumnavigate the globe in a relatively short amount of time.

In its common form, which can be found in lakes, rivers and other large bodies of water, Dragonite is a light orange colour, with teal membranes to its wings and yellowish antennae (which it uses to sense prey and also to perform electrical attacks). Dragonite reaches full maturity at 55 months if trained correctly, with wild specimens varying between 55 to 65 months. A creature with extreme intellect and power, it is not easily trained and is marked as a pseudo-legendary class Pokémon.


The Eastern Blue Dragonite is found primarily in lakes and rivers and is noted for having very high special attack and special defence capabilities. Though smaller than their common counterparts, they are longer, more lithe and are considered the most elegant of the various breeds. They are not capable flyers, preferring to glide with their smaller wingspan, but are inclined to use them to surge out of bodies of water to catch prey. 

These Dragonite are the calmest and most serene of their species, boasting higher intelligence than the Common Dragonite. Along with their small wingspan and blueish colouring, they are easily spotted by their white frilled antennae that adorn the neck, leading people to mistake them for the juvenile Dragonairs that often accompany them in their pods.  Being that they often live in warmer climates, they seem slightly more resilient to ice attacks (a primary weakness of dragons) as their blood is naturally warmer overall.


The Crested Dragonite, sometimes called the Flame Crested Dragonite, is one of the most exotic breeds of this Pokémon. Its vibrant colours set it apart from other Dragonite, along with several other differences.

As a cliff-dweller by nature, the Crested Dragonite has a much larger wingspan to body ratio than other Dragonite, capable of gliding for days at a time if required. Its feet are less webbed and have longer talons that allow it to pluck prey from the water. This also affords it more grip on its mountainous home. The crest fills with blood when the Pokémon is angered and shows off the same exotic colours that adorn the wing membranes.

Crested Dragonite are often faster than common Dragonite, as their naturally larger wings allow for them to reach heights and speeds few other winged species can match. Their downfall, however, is when they are grounded, being lighter and more fragile than their Common brethren.


The Muddy Dragonite is known for being the most aggressive of the Dragonite breeds. Far stronger and tougher than its ocean-dwelling brethren, the Muddy Dragonite boasts exceptional defence and attack, which it sacrifices speed for.

As these creatures are often found with the ability ‘Multiscale’, (a highly sought after trait in the Dragonite species) it is no surprise that their tough, armoured hide separates them from the other breeds. Their wings are small and unsuited for long distance flights, preferring, as with other small-winged Dragonite, the use of quick bursts of speed in their swampy homes. Dwelling in murky and often shallow waters inland, the Muddy Dragonite can also be found lazing out in the afternoon sun, heating its body temperature up before it returns to the water.

This breed is often used as parental stock in order to pass on the Multiscale gene onto its offspring, weeding out the aggressive tendencies as the process goes along.


‘Shiny’ Dragonite (and its evolutionary line) are rare, but are becoming increasingly more common, as are most ‘Shiny’ Pokémon. This pigment change, whilst adored by the training public, is in fact a genetic disorder resulting from inbreeding. All too often, trainers will ‘farm’ Pokémon eggs in order to create stronger and more specialised animals, sometimes resulting in a ‘Shiny’ side effect.

The disorder, which can affect any Pokémon subjected to harsh inbreeding, can be categorised in a faint sheen on the skin (that can result in them being shunned from their social groups and parents and simply not surviving in the wild due to lack of camouflage in weaker animals) and a drastic skin colour change. Whilst considered desirable, most ‘Shiny’ Pokémon are often frail and sickly, few living as long as their uncorrupted counterparts. Pokémon breeders are advised by the government to halt this process, but with such a high demand for glamourous Pokémon, it is unlikely to stop any time soon.


The Great Ocean Dragonite is exceptionally rare, typically spending most of their lives in the deeper areas of the ocean.

Despite being rather sluggish and poorly equipped for combat on land, the Ocean Dragonite boasts remarkable defences and HP stats, with a thick hide that only the strongest attacks can penetrate. In comparison to the Common Dragonite, the Ocean Dragonite is far more suited to life in water. Its arms and legs are more fin-like, and primarily used for steering its massive body through the water. Its wings are too small for it to fly with, considering its weight, so they are commonly used for underwater battles, where quick bursts of speed are required. A large mouth also allows for it to swallow entire schools of Goldeen, Magikarp and other fish-like Pokémon in a single gulp.

Seeing a fully grown Great Ocean Dragonite is a rare privilege. The largest known recording was at a Kanto lighthouse in 1998, where it was estimated to have been at least 30 meters long.

EDIT - added in a size chart because quite a few people were asking for one :)

SpaceX Sends Super Science to Space Station!

SpaceX is scheduled to launch its Dragon spacecraft PACKED with super cool research and technology to the International Space Station June 1 from Kennedy Space Center in Florida. New solar panels, investigations that study neutron stars and even fruit flies are on the cargo list. Let’s take a look at what other bits of science are making their way to the orbiting laboratory 250 miles above the Earth…

New solar panels to test concept for more efficient power source

Solar panels generate power well, but they can be delicate and large when used to power a spacecraft or satellites. This technology demonstration is a solar panel concept that is lighter and stores more compactly for launch than the solar panels currently in use. 

Roll-Out Solar Array (ROSA) has solar cells on a flexible blanket and a framework that rolls out like a tape measure and snap into place, and could be used to power future space vehicles.  

Investigation to Study Composition of Neutron Stars

Neutron stars, the glowing cinders left behind when massive stars explode as supernovas, contain exotic states of matter that are impossible to replicate in any lab. NICER studies the makeup of these stars, and could provide new insight into their nature and super weird behavior.

Neutron stars emit X-ray radiation, enabling the NICER technology to observe and record information about its structure, dynamics and energetics. 

Experiment to Study Effect of New Drug on Bone Loss

When people and animals spend lots of space, they experience bone density loss. In-flight exercise can prevent it from getting worse, but there isn’t a therapy on Earth or in space that can restore bone that is already lost.

The Systemic Therapy of NELL-1 for osteoporosis (Rodent Research-5) investigation tests a new drug that can both rebuild bone and block further bone loss, improving health for crew members.

Research to Understand Cardiovascular Changes

Exposure to reduced gravity environments can result in cardiovascular changes such as fluid shifts, changes in total blood volume, heartbeat and heart rhythm irregularities, and diminished aerobic capacity.

The Fruit Fly Lab-02 study will use the fruit fly (Drosophila melanogaster) to better understand the underlying mechanisms responsible for the adverse effects of prolonged exposure to microgravity on the heart. Fruit flies are effective model organisms, and we don’t mean on the fashion runway. Want to see how 1,000 bottles of fruit flies were prepared to go to space? Check THIS out.

Space Life-Support Investigation

Currently, the life-support systems aboard the space station require special equipment to separate liquids and gases. This technology utilizes rotating and moving parts that, if broken or otherwise compromised, could cause contamination aboard the station. 

The Capillary Structures investigation studies a new method of water recycling and carbon dioxide removal using structures designed in specific shapes to manage fluid and gas mixtures. 

Earth-Observation Tools

Orbiting approximately 250 miles above the Earth’s surface, the space station provides pretty amazing views of the Earth. The Multiple User System for Earth Sensing (MUSES) facility hosts Earth-viewing instruments such as high-resolution digital cameras, hyperspectral imagers, and provides precision pointing and other accommodations.

This investigation can produce data that could be used for maritime domain awareness, agricultural awareness, food security, disaster response, air quality, oil and gas exploration and fire detection.

How Can That Be (1/?) [Ft. Reader x Hulk x The Avengers]

Summary: Bruce finds himself drawn to the new avenger by an unknown force. What happens when this force causes Bruce to become the Hulk?

This wasn’t planned but it happened. Bruce had “Hulked Out” and was destroying Tony’s lab, he had been working with Tony for months on a new project. However during a test run of a new Iron Man suit accessory it had malfunctioned. When Tony turned on the accessory it spun around firing little energy bean bullets around the lab. One of the E-Bullets (Tony’s name for the new accessory) wound up hitting Bruce’s face, which in turn caused Bruce to “Hulk Out”.

Acting quickly Tony ran to his ‘Iron Man’ suit and began flying around the lab trying to keep the Hulk contained in the lab. Hoping that maybe just maybe Hulk would calm down and not run around the tower destroying everything in his path. Tony felt bad about the current situation, he knew how much Bruce hated to become the Hulk and he hadn’t had an episode in two months and now because of a stupid mishap an episode occurred.  

Hulk was smashing various objects in the lab, he was breathing heavily and growling. Tony had to bob and weave around in the air to prevent the flying objects the Hulk threw from hitting him. Tony was thankful that he put away all of the really expensive/heavy equipment before he and Bruce began working.

“This was such a bad idea, I shouldn’t have tested it today,” Tony thought to himself. A new Avenger was arriving today, not knowing much about her or her abilities he aided on the side of caution and he decided that he should alert the others to the current situation. Calling out to F.R.I.D.A.Y he asked her to patch him through to the others.

Upstairs you were being shown around the tower by the other Avengers. Your abilities were still somewhat of a mystery. You knew you could move objects with your mind but you hadn’t mastered it. You were also able to see what others saw through their own eyes, but that was it. You felt like you could do more but you weren’t sure how to go about improving your powers.

“This is the kitchen, over there is the living room and to the right-“Steve wasn’t able to finish his sentence due to a voice cutting him off.

Prompt: Sulu, Botany Lab, venus fly trap  (@feelmyroarrrr)

The air in the back of the botany lab was humid and earthy. It wrapped comfort and warmth around you like a blanket. It hadn’t been long into the mission when you discovered what you’d come to view as your retreat. There were rarely crew back there, and the few that did frequent the furthest reaches of the lab rarely bothered drawing you into conversation. They saw you, tucked into a corner, your PADD in your lap, and knew exactly what you were up to. Many of your fellow crewmates recognized the signs of introversion as they carried them themselves to some extent. To most of the botanist on board the Enterprise, you were no more interesting in your presence than any of the plants, and required considerably less maintenance.

The corner you liked to nestle in was less interesting than the rest of the lab, if only for the reason that it housed Earth flora. You usually tucked in beside a small copse of ferns, but you noticed recently there was something new growing under the fans of the long leaves. You were surprised as, over the course of a few weeks, you realized it was a venus fly trap. You’d only ever seen one in a botany text in your first year, and you were curious about the little plant that had such a killer reputation.

The next time you were tucked into your corner, if anyone had asked, they would have discovered you were reading up about the Dionaea muscipula and how to maintain it. You weren’t sure if it had been planted on purpose or if it had somehow arrived with the soil brought to the lab, but you developed a strong affection for the fierce little thing, and wanted to see it thrive.

You were so engrossed in the text of the article you were reading that you didn’t notice the footsteps approaching until a voice spoke to you, startling you so much you let out a yelp of surprise, dropping your PADD. You reached down to retrieve it, but whoever it was beat you to it, picking it up and brushing the soil off of it.

“Ensign Y/L/N! I’d heard a rumour about the phantom in the ferns,” Sulu laughed, glancing down at your PADD as he handed it to you. “And you found my girl, I see?”

“You planted the venus flytrap?” You asked. He nodded.

“On our last shore leave, I found a very ragged one in the hotel we stayed in. I couldn’t leave her there, so I brought her with me. But she was struggling in my quarters, and I just felt it was more appropriate to bring her down here, where she would have as much soil and moisture as she needed, and I could figure out how to feed her,” he explained. You found yourself laughing.

“That’s what I was reading up on. The information I read said they’d adapted to eating bugs because the soil they were planted in was so poor. So if they’re fertilized appropriately, will the plants do well, or do they really need a supply of insects?” You asked. Not really of Sulu, but more voicing your thoughts about what you’d read.

“I think she’ll likely need both. So we’ll have to find an insect source -”

“The zoology lab has freeze dried crickets,” you interrupted. His eyes widened.

“Really?” He asked.

“Yeah, we have a few lizards that need fed so we’ve got a huge container of them. I’m sure we could spare some for your plant,” you nodded.

“Harriet,” he offered.


“That’s her name,” Sulu explained, sitting down beside you. “So what’s your story, Ensign? Why are you tucked away amongst the ferns?”

“Same as Harriet’s, I guess. I get overwhelmed sometimes and need some quiet refuge,” you laughed.

“And the plants hide you?” He asked.

“It’s not really about hiding, it’s more about recharging. Having a little down time where I can be alone with my thoughts and work through my worries and anxieties without having them exacerbated by more social interactions when I’m already drained,” you blurted. “Sorry, that’s probably too much info.”

“I totally understand. Ben is very much an introvert as well,” Sulu smiled, spinning his wedding band on his hand. “He sometimes retreats into the study to listen to music. When we were first dating, I was always worried that I’d done something wrong.”

“I’ve made past relationships feel that way myself,” you admitted.

“It wasn’t until I saw how refreshed he was, and how much more he enjoyed out time together when he was given his time to reboot that I realized how taking himself away from me actually was a greater act of love than if he’d forced himself to stay past his tolerance,” he explained. “Keep your refuge among the ferns with Harriet. I’ll pop in every few days to check on her, but I’ll leave it up to you if you’re here whether you want to chat.”

“Thanks, Sulu.”

“Ben sometimes wants to spend time together, but quietly. I’ll read and he’ll listen to music or the other way around,” he began. You tilted your head to listen. He scrubbed his hand on the back of his neck, but met your gaze. “If you ever need to recharge with someone, I know how to do that too.”

Your smile broadened and you nodded. “Not something I usually need, but I’m grateful for the offer.”

“Alright.” He rose and cleared his throat. “Anyhow, it was nice to chat with you. I’ll message you about the crickets, and you get back to me when you can.”

“Thanks, Sulu.”

“For sure. Enjoy the solace,” he winked and then turned and headed back the direction he’d come.

“Oh my, will you be able to move comfortably in that?” Sophie asked her arms full of shovels and maps.

Serena blinked in confusion a few times.  Behind the professor, assistants were frantically milling about packing things into crates to be carried by Charizard and Garchomp and whatever large flying Pokémon the lab could spare.  Serena looked down at her sundress and wedged strappy sandals. Another cute outfit wasted.

She yells at him his third day on the job. Sasuke isn’t too sure why Naruto’s righthand woman is shouting, but then he hears words like “callous” and “you think you can just fire people like that, fancy schmancy finance asshole?” and ah, it begins to make sense.

As the newest person tasked with saving Konoha’s sinking budget, Sasuke has been labelled the Bad Guy and has made many enemies.

Apparently this woman is one of them.

Missed Kiss Pt. 1

Hello my pretties!  I was inspired by The Flash ep 1x19 and all the feels it gave me, so I decided to channel that energy creatively, thus, this fic was born!  I just really love the idea of snowbarry so much that it makes my heart hurt and or gives me butterflies!  Needless to say, I was hurting quite a bit as I watched ep 19 when it turned out that it was Hannibal kissing her instead of Barry.  It is a shame really.  However, I think that scene served it’s purpose as far as planting the snowbarry seed (or the idea of them as a couple) in Caitlin’s head…at least I hope it did! I just can’t get enough of those two!  They truly are adorkable!  Anyways, I hope you enjoy my little fanfiction…

Note: I do not own these characters or anything else related to The Flash, Arrow, or DC Comics.

Plot: The almost snowbarry kiss stirred up some feelings Caitlin didn’t know she had, or rather tried to ignore.  Unable to sleep or think straight, what is a girl to, but talk it out with her bestie?!

Characters: Caitlin Snow, Felicity Smoak

Ships: Snowbarry, Caitlicity (don’t know if that is a thing, but it is now!)


 Part 2-

Part 3-


It was two-thirty in the morning and Caitlin Snow was wide awake.  About two hours ago, she had thrown on her favorite pajamas, a blue and gray STAR Labs t-shirt with matching flannel pants, and crawled into bed intent on falling right asleep.  However, her brain had other ideas as images of Barry and her kissing kept dancing around behind her eyelids.  Stop it, Cait! It wasn’t even real! She kept chanting to herself.  Laying on her back, she pulled her floral, maroon and white comforter closer to her chest and closed her eyes tighter, willing herself to sleep.

Sara wakes up at S.T.A.R Labs. 

Mick had found them; both laying unconscious in a pool of blood in one of the far left storages; Sara’s arms wrapped around Leonard’s body and tear stains on her bloody face.

For a moment he thought that he was too late.

But the three arrows that were buried on Leonard’s chest seemed to not have injured him as much as it seemed; missing his lungs.

Sara wasn’t as lucky as Leonard. The blood from the deep stab wound on her lower abdomen had turned her white suit red and was beginning to form into a small puddle around her.

Before Mick could react, he heard Ray’s panicked voice as he ran towards him and the pair, and he gasped; covering his mouth with his suited hand.

“Take Sara and fly her to S.T.A.R Labs.” Mick ordered and Ray lost no time as he rushed and hoisted the bleeding woman in his arms; and then he stopped. “What about Snart?”

“I got it covered.” Mick acknowledged; anger mixed with concern lacing his usually nonchalant voice. “Now get the hell out of here.”

His hand immediately went to his comm; opening it.

“Allen, come right now in storage 15.”

Sara’s eyelids felt heavier than usual as she blinked her eyes open and found herself looking at a very happy Cisco Ramon and a very relieved Barry Allen.

For a moment she was just trying to fully understand and process what was happening; slowly trying to become more aware of her surroundings.

An I.V was hooked on her left arm and she felt the distinctive numbness from whenever her skin had to be stitched.

Once her memories had returned back to Sara, panic and fear grew inside her as tears began to well on her eyes.

“Leonard…” She whimpered as she tried to sit up and failing; her pain taking the best of her. “Where is Leonard..?”

Barry settled Sara back on the uncomfortable bed and moved to sit in the chair next to her. Only then Sara’s eyes fell on his suit, which he was strangely still wearing, and the distinctive blood stains that could be seen against the scarlet color of the suit.

Sara’s hand went to cover her mouth as tears started to roll down her cheeks at the sight of Leonard’s blood.

“Snart is in surgery with Caitlin right now.” Barry explained and then his eyes rose and he looked at the wall clock. “They won’t be long.”

Seeing the concern on the woman’s eyes Cisco continued; doing his best to reassure Sara of Leonard health status.

“Thankfully, the arrows didn’t damage and any vital organs; they didn’t even go all the way in.” Cisco added, smiling lightly at Sara. “He’s going to be okay. Mick got in there in time.”

“Okay.” Sara sighed, flashing both men with a sad smile. “Thank you for everything. If it wasn’t for you…-.”

”It was a team effort!” Ray piped in, with his voice cheerful as he walked in the medical ward of S.T.A.R labs; a tray of food in hand. “I’m so glad you are awake Sara! Doctor Stein and Jax tried to make you something to eat!”

He handed her the tray and Sara smiled at him gratefully, as the broad man pulled her in for a hug.

After eating all that she could, Sara wanted to wait for Leonard to get out of surgery, but once again exhaustion pulled her back to sleep.

The next time she woke up she felt much better; the pain now less-probably due to painkillers.

And then she turned her head and saw Leonard laying on another bed beside her; his eyes shut and his skin pale, with a large gauze covering most of his bare chest.

Immediately, Sara sat up-ignoring the irritation on her wound and she hopped out of the bed and sat in the chair next to Leonard’s bed.

He must have come out of surgery not long ago; still being drugged.

Her hands moved to Leonard’s; her fingers intertwining with his, as his eyes slowly opened and fell on her face, a smile forming on his blanched lips.

“Cheated death twice.” He croaked and then coughed; his voice coming out shakier than he probably intended. “Should we write this down somewhere?”

Sara smirked at him, as Leonard squeezed her hand reassuringly and she brought her free hand to stroke his cheek.

“You are a really lucky man, Mr. Snart.” Sara acknowledged and Leonard savored her features in the dim-lighted room. “You could have died out there.”

“So could have you.” He responded, eyes falling on the gauze that was revealed by the S.T.A.R lab’s t-shirt. “If my memory serves right, you were the one who got stabbed.”

“And you had to go play hero and get three arrows to the chest.” Sara remarked, her free hand now stroking his bare shoulder.

“Better me than you.” Leonard acknowledged with a small smirk; his thumb rubbing circles in her hand. “But I didn’t want to leave you again.”

She smiled at him through her new-formed tears and leaned her head against his; being careful to not touch his wrapped chest.

“You know that I am not going to break assassin, right?” Leonard questioned, as he scooted over to make room for Sara in the bed. “Come on.”

Sara took a moment to glare at him, before sighing and laying next to him-her head now resting on his shoulder softly, as his hand stroked her cheek.

“Are you okay?” He asked her then, concern lacing his soft voice. Sara lifted her eyes to meet his and pressed her lips on his for a moment.

“I am now.” She answered and Leonard wrapped his arm around her shoulder pulled her closer to him; ignoring the stinging pain on his torso.

“I’ve been thinking about something for a while now; and I just wanted to get it out of my chest.” Sara lifted one of her eyebrows and looked at him intrigued. “I love you.”

As the words left Leonard’s lips a smile crept up in Sara’s lips and she faced up to meet his eyes again.

“I love you.” She whispered and Leonard kissed her nose; making her giggle against him-something that she hadn’t done in a very long time.  

“So, what is the plan now?” Leonard required and the woman just shrugged.

“I guess we have to take down the Legion; use Thawne to our advantage.” Sara responded; shivering with Leonard’s hand trailing down her bare arm.

“And then?” He wondered out loud.

Sara felt a smile form in her lips.

“Then if you want to, we can see what the future holds for me and you.” The blonde said in a barely-audible whisper.

“I would like that.” He replied sincerely, before he smirked. “After all, I am one hell of a thief.”

She slapped his arm playfully as he pulled her in for another kiss.

It wasn’t always easy.

Hell, sometimes it wasn’t anywhere near easy.

But somehow, they had survived-stronger than they were before.

And, one day, many years later; when Rip Hunter would come knocking on their front door asking them to help bring his family home, Sara and Leonard would drop their own family off to Uncle Lisa and Uncle Cisco and they would pull the batons and the cold gun out of their closet.

Because before they were mommy and daddy, and husband and wife, they were The White Canary and Captain Cold.

A crook and an assassin, who despite all the odds-had made it.
