@arabian-batboy said: Can you write something where Bruce comes across Jason in an alley after his resurrection but before Talia took him in & since he couldn’t talk at that time (& because he’s supposed to be dead) Bruce thinks it’s just a hallucination and just leaves him?
It had been a long time since Bruce was afraid of ghosts, mostly because they never left him alone. If this one seemed more real than usual, hey, it had been a rough day.
Always was, this time of year.
April 27th. Bruce liked to think he was getting better— maybe some year he wouldn’t find himself lurking in Crime Alley on today, the anniversary of Jason’s death— but he wasn’t there yet.
It made sense. How was he supposed to forget Jason? That was what it would take, Bruce knew, to leave the guilt behind. Every time Jason crossed his mind, it all came crashing back: the grief and shame and pain in his chest.
Flashbacks, sometimes. Hallucinations.
He wasn’t particularly surprised to see his dead son lying on the cobblestones. It was bound to happen today.
Bruce took a deep breath. It was time for another hell ride through his own subconsciousness. What would it be this time?
Older, he thought— this Jason looked older, the age he would be if he had lived. That was normal; Bruce spent a lot of time imagining Jason alive and growing up. This Jason looked like he had been on the street for a long time, and Bruce could explain that too; they’d met on this spot when Jason was young and homeless. Of course he was remembering that day.
Bruce blinked away the image of Jason, small and defiant, sprinting towards the mouth of the alley with his tire iron. Who hit the Batman with a tire iron? Jason did. Jason was…
Well, Jason was dead. Jason had been extraordinary— brave, bright, explosive, kind— but he was gone, and the illusion on the pavement was just that: an illusion. A memory. Bruce’s mind playing tricks.
The punishment he deserved. He could feel it beginning like it always did, his heartbeat pounding in his ears, his fingertips, his chest, rooting him to the stone underneath him until he couldn’t run— not that he should run. He hadn’t saved Jason. The least he could do was feel it.
Important to Power Rangers fanfic writers (and writers in general): don’t use epithets to describe characters already known, and especially don’t use them to Other the character! It makes learning a character’s identity difficult and also is just offensive.
- “The black-haired girl sifted through the contents of her vaporized lunch, a glum look on her face.” (Who vaporized her lunch? Who is she??)
- “Masked Vigilante looks agreeable.” (New character, who…)
- “He waved his arms around for balance, taking out a car and a carousel as he did so. ‘Shit, Bob!’ Sam cried.” (Who? Oh, it’s Bob.)
- “Trini ate the bagel. The Latina disliked them, but it was better than green eggs and ham.” (There are better ways to show she is Latina.)
- “The Asian boy raised his brows. Zach then burst into laughter.” (Ludi Lin is Chinese???? Naomi Scott is half-Indian???? Both have ancestors from different parts of Asia, so I’m already confused. Very broad. Othering.)
- “Kimberly Hart was no angel. The pink-wearing girl was a goddess: ethereal, a delegate to humanity, and very stressed.” (”She was a goddess….” not really bad, just a long epithet for an already identified character.)

Warning! Blood and gore mentioned!
The sound of a falling chair snapped you out of you light sleep. You glanced at the digital clock on your nightstand, it was 4am. You relaxed slightly as you realized Jason hadn’t come home yet, but you were still on alert as you crawled out of bed and slipped your favorite silk robe onto your shoulders. While normally, you wore at least one of Jason’s t-shirts to bed, this night it was hot and you wore only your underwear beneath the robe. You armed yourself with the baseball bat you kept by your nightstand and made your way into the kitchen area.
“Jay?” you called out softly as you left the bedroom.
“Hey, baby girl, I didn’t mean to wake you,” he spoke up. His voice was thick with pain. You frowned and switched on the light. Sitting in the floor in a puddle of blood was one Jason Todd. You gasped and let your eyes search him over. You grabbed the closest first aide kit of the seven you had stashed around the apartment. You dropped to your knees next to hi.
“I’m ok, doll, go back to sleep,” he slurred. You simply shook your head and pulled his helmet from his head. His face was as perfect as ever, however there was a small cut that bled from his bottom lip. You made a mental note to come back and clean it up, but moved on to locate his more severe injuries.
You peeled off his brown leather jacket and found a bullet wound in his right shoulder. Upon further inspection, you found another would in his left thigh. You cursed softly to yourself as you began cutting away the fabric of his uniform.
“I’m okay,” he repeated for the millionth time. You chose to just ignore his new chant and found the exit wounds on both shots. You sighed in relief because, while you had more stitching to do, you didn’t have to dig out any bullets. You began stitching him with practiced expertise. You placed a bandage over each wound once it was cleaned and sutured.
“I’m okay,” he chanted as his head leaned against the floor.
“Stop telling me you’re okay, Jason,” you finally snapped at him. “You’re bleeding out on our kitchen floor,” you bit back angrily. You took a calming breath before going back to work. You could feel his eyes trying to focus on you.
“You’re so beautiful,” he grinned goofily. You narrowed your eyes at him but continued to patch his remaining minor injuries. Once you were satisfied with your work, you managed to pull the now half naked man into the bathroom. You fully removed the remaining scraps of his clothing and began to gently clean the blood and dirt from his skin. He hummed softly in his blood-loss haze as your fingers spread through his hair.
“I love you, sunshine,” he mumbled in his half conscious state. You sighed as you gave him another look over. He was completely nude and covered in more scars than she ever cared to count. He had bandaged scattered across his body and fresh bruises along with faded yellow ones.
“I love you, too, Jay,” you admitted. It was the truth, you were an utter fool for the man in front of you. Once you deemed him clean enough, you helped him pull on fresh boxers and helped him into their shared bed.
“Stay with me,” he requested weakly, he was beyond exhausted at this point.
“Until forever ends, Jay,” you answered as you sat by his side. You brushed your fingers through his dark messy hair with it’s single white streak. You hummed softly as you did everything you knew to soothe Jason to sleep.
Once he was out soundly, you stood and kissed his forehead gently. You made your way back to your dining room area and frowned. It was a complete disaster area. It was the worst state you’d see it in, but you would once again be scrubbing blood from the tile grout.
You started with the first aid kit. You packed the kit, making sure everything was organized the way it was before. As soon as it was neat, you put it back in it’s place in the kitchen. You threw out the empty packages and soiled gauzes. You turned on the tap and started filling the mop bucket with hot, soapy water. You grabbed a fresh sponge and settled on your knees with the mess before you.
You scrubbed for a total of three hours until the dining room was entirely spotless and disinfected. It was when you were putting away the cleaning supplies that you realized you had fresh blood stains on your favorite silk robe and all over your exposed skin. You made your way to the bathroom, exhaustion from the adrenaline wearing off setting in. There were blood stains here and there in the bathroom. You cleaned them up quickly before starting the shower.
You watched as the blood ran off of your body and down the drain. It was becoming a common sight in your life and it almost bothered you that it didn’t bother you anymore. It was always so much blood. You couldn’t help but consider for a brief moment if this was really what you wanted for your life. You wondered what your life would have become if Jason had never made his place in it. You shook your head vigorously, water pouring over your face.
You loved Jason. No amount of blood or bullet wounds would change the fact that he was everything you wanted. He was worth the blood stained robes and the bright red that washed down the drain. He would always be worth it.
Honestly this was quite a lot of fun to write, so I hope everyone enjoys reading it!
“It feels like we haven’t seen each other in ages,” Percy complained, as he walked through the cabin area of Camp Half-Blood. It was a sunny August day, and many campers were milling about.
“I know, Seaweed Brain, but you know I’ve been so busy helping with the New Athens plans. And you’ve been doing a lot of training sessions. Besides, that’s why we’re having our picnic today!” Annabeth said happily.
Percy nodded, his usual smile returning to his face. He grabbed her hand, ready to take her to the beach, where he had planned on having their picnic, when someone interrupted them.
“Percy! Annabeth!” Piper shouted from behind them, panting out of breath. “We need you.” She was dressed in shorts and a blue t-shirt, and Rachel was next to her, a small smile on her face, dressed in her usual paint-stained attire.
“For what?” Percy asked reluctantly. “We were just about to–”
“There’s a meeting in the Big House,” Rachel said, interrupting Percy. “Chiron says you guys need to be there. There’s no time for you to go to the beach–you need to come now.”
Percy looked at Annabeth, disappointment written on his face. “I guess we have to go.”
“It shouldn’t matter too much.” Annabeth smiled. “How about afternoon tea?”
“Who has sandwiches for tea?” Percy grumbled halfheartedly.
Annabeth rolled her eyes.
“Fine,” Percy turned to Rachel and Piper. “We’re coming.”
“Great,” Piper said, her eyes brightening. “Let’s go.”
Percy and Annabeth followed them, now focused fully on what this emergency meeting would be about.
“Well, that was a waste of time,” Percy said in annoyance, as he and Annabeth walked out of the Big House over an hour later.
Character(s): Negan x Reader x Simon (pre-apocalypse) Summary: It was just a regular bachelor party that you had to work that night, but what you weren’t expecting were two eligible bachelors that caught your interest… Word Count: 4,515 Warning: No smut, just ya know… Dirty dancing, lap dances, and Negan’s vulgarity as usual… Seriously tho, the dancing is very very dirty. Author’s Note: So, I’m not sure if I want to do a two-parter for this story, but for now, let’s settle on this story being a one-shot. I currently have taken a liking to Steven Ogg and literally freaked out when he and JDM were on the same panel at WSC London (wish Austin Amelio wasn’t sitting between them, but beggars can’t be choosers right?) lmao, anyway, I need more of these two bc my god I’ve got a thing for them both and I’m still waiting for them to be standing next to each other in one goddamn frame pls

“Take a seat, take a seat, take
a motherfucking seat, Jason!” Negan
grinned, taking the groom-to-be by the shoulders and pushing him into a chair
in the middle of the room.
Jason’s wedding wasn’t until
this weekend, but the group of men decided to take his bachelor party to Las
Vegas. They didn’t want to risk bumping into his fiancée at any of the bars,
though, that was highly unlikely.
“I said no strippers, guys!”
Jason exclaimed, fidgeting in his seat. “Anne’s going to be angry! I told her
no strippers! Just gambling and drinks out with my guys…”
“Calm down, Jase. Seriously.
Whatever happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas. Besides, you’re telling me that her
bunch of girlfriends didn’t bring her her own stripper? Come on. It wouldn’t be
a bachelor or bachelorette party without a stripper,” Simon interrupted,
walking behind Jason and gently squeezing his shoulders to calm him down.
“There are five of us altogether
and only you and Negan are the ones that are single,” Jason added.
“And what’s your fucking point,
Jason?” Negan smirked, sipping on his glass of scotch as he leaned against the bar
in their hotel suite.
“All I’m saying is that you two
can’t talk about feeling guilty because this woman can dance all up on you and
you won’t have to worry about a fiancée or wife
getting angry with you,” Jason replied, motioning to the other men that
were his groomsmen.
“Lighten up. It’s not like you’re
going to fuck her. Right, Jase?” Negan teased, chuckling quietly as the man
sitting in the chair grabbed one of the pillows from the sofa to throw towards
“Fuck you, Negan.”
“Seriously, Jason. She’ll be
here for two hours tops. That’s it. She’ll give you one dance and that’ll be
it,” Negan sighed, trying to reason with the other man. “This is your last
chance to do this. Just fucking live a little.”
“Pour me a shot of Patron,” he
Negan smirked, “That’s more like
The men clinked their shot
glasses together before downing the shot simultaneously. Suddenly, they were
all broken out of their reverie when they heard a knock at the door.
Hey guys! I’ve got my first ever Power Rangers fanfic here. I saw the movie on Thursday and I just really really loved it. I also started shipping Billy x Jason from the moment Jason slapped the shit out of that bully. So, here’s my fic for them. I hope you guys like it!
All mistakes are my own
Jason’s been to a lot of football practices. Like, a lot. But none of them have made him as tired and as sore as training to be a Power Ranger has. Every step he takes, makes some muscle somewhere hurt. But it’s a good hurt, this is the happiest Jason’s been in a long time. He finally feels like for once he’s doing something right. After all nothing beats training to be a superhero and then going for pizza with his friends.
They’ve been getting closer and closer, the five of them. They’re all different, extremely different and at first it wasn’t clear if they actually could get along. But now, Jason can’t think of anything better than hanging out with the other four.
Sadly, tonight’s not a pizza night. Kimberly had to be home for a family dinner. Zach needed to check on his mom and Trini, well she hadn’t said why she was leaving but she left all the same. Which leaves Jason and Billy for the rest of the evening.
