You were sick and tired of your attractive idiot neighbor blocking your driveway.

a/n: i felt like writing this weekend and this happened surprise surprise. this is what happens when i’m buzzed off of two venti macchiatos please leave me feedback TT


“What the hell do you think you’re doing?”

You blocked out the angry voice shouting at you from your neighbors now open door. The hurried footsteps were getting closer but you pretended you didn’t hear, continuing to drag your key along the shiny black BMW blocking your driveway. Before you could reach the back tires a hand grasped your wrist, turning you around to face your irritating neighbor.

“Oh! Hey there, neighbor,” you grinned, innocently eyeing your neighbor head to toe. He was dressed casually with his hair tousled as though he’d just woken up. His jaw was tense as his hands tightly held your wrist, nothing but anger found in his eyes. You weren’t sure of his first name but had seen him a few times in silent passing. He was relatively new to the neighborhood, keeping to himself along with his roommate you caught quick glimpses of as well. The two had moved in a month ago and you kept to yourself as well, not bothering to play nice and whip up a housewarming desert you couldn’t even properly bake. It wasn’t until a week ago that you realized your neighbors weren’t exactly your cup of tea. They had people over constantly whether they were attending their overcrowded house parties, movie nights or simply staying over till the sun came back up. It seemed whenever the two had guests around their parking lot quickly become full, causing a new issue to arrive. You noticed the brunette, tall one seemed to have a kick out of parking right in front of your light blue beetle making it impossible for you to maneuver around his pricey sports car. The parties seemed to hit an all time high and you constantly found yourself trapped in your own driveway. You left sticky notes on his windshield, kindly asking him to stop blocking your spot and occasionally he would but it wouldn’t take long for him to fall back into his routine. It wasn’t until he made you late to your job earning you a lengthy lecture from your boss, that you felt you’d had enough, storming outside to drag your keys along his prized possession.

Your decision making skills weren’t the best when you were angry.

Scheme

Prompt: Combination of Jason Todd imagine where reader used to be part of the league angst maybe? And Can you please do something with Jason x reader? (They’re boyfriend and girlfriend) Specifically something really fluffy like reader and Jason are partners on patrol and they help each other out during fights. They also have witty banter and flirt while fighting. After patrol, they are going back to the batcave and it’s really cute and romantic. I don’t know. Hopefully this works. We don’t get a lot of Jason fluff.

Requested by: ANON and bitch-jerk-assbut-idigits67


    “What is your deal with her?”

    Jason can only smirk as he ignores the question … again. Some things were private, and his relationship with you was at the top of that list. “Seriously Jay, is this a Selina and Bruce type romance?”

    That made Jason frown. You weren’t casual. You were a committed and loyal person. Of course, they had no way of knowing that. All they knew about you was your mask and the fact you showed up when anyone was in trouble. Well, that and the constant flirting.

    Removing the helmet, Jason ran his fingers through his hair before facing his brothers. Dick was in full swing big brother mode. Dick had made it clear that he was tired of losing people, that had led to him being more nosy than usual lately. It had also left him sounding like a mother hen.

    The rest of the family was curious, but they weren’t going as far as to demand answers. With nothing left to do, Jason did the only thing he could; he chucked the helmet at his brother and grinned in satisfaction when he caught it; it gave him just enough time to rush forward and sweep his feet out from under him.

    Leaving him on the floor, Jason made his escape. It didn’t take long to get home. The mere fact that you were waiting for him was enough to make him hurry. Sure enough, you were there.

You were lying on the couch dressed in your favorite sleep pants, and one of Jason’s shirts. He’s still dressed in his patrol uniform when he collapses on top of you. You giggle as he steals a few kisses.

You sweep his hair behind his ear before kissing him properly. “Welcome home.”

“It’s so good to be home. My brothers are annoying.”

“Especially when I’m trying to save them.”

He laughs, “Told you so.”

He links his fingers with yours. His thumb twirls the band on your ring finger. You’d been

a part of the League when Talia had brought Jason to the compound. You’d watched him come back to life, and had been part of the force to help restrain him in the early days.

    It had become apparent rather quickly that he calmed down around you. He had allowed you near him, to help him. Your bond had become solid and concrete within a year. And Ra’s had been consumed with it. Jason was one of the best, that was clear. He was strong, and fast, and he could endure.

    And after several years of being partners on the battlefield, you became partners in life. The two of you had been faithful to Ra’s, to the League. You’d been so grateful for the gift of each other, that you hadn’t questioned him. Until he derived a plan to destroy Gotham.

    Years of memories had come flooding back to Jason. It became clear what the two of you had to do in the days that followed. Jason had fled, and you’d remained as a spy. When the time had come you had foiled the League with the help of Jason’s family.

    You’d appeared a week later, dressed in a mask, and your own costume. Playing with Jason’s family had been too good of an opportunity to pass up. So you patrolled the streets of Gotham with Jason, and when he was busy with his family you did it alone.

    From time to time, you showed up when Jason’s family needed help. You pulled them out of sticky situations, flirted with your husband, and retreated home.

    Jason’s lips on your neck draw you out of your thoughts and you giggle, “We can’t.”

    “Why not?”

    You kiss his cheek, “Because there’s a little girl in there waiting for her daddy to check the closet for monsters.”

    His brow furrows, “She’s still awake?”

    You nod, “Oh yes. She wanted to see her daddy.”

    With a smile he heaves himself off the couch and you watch him disappear into her bedroom. A moment later you turn towards the window and smile, “Took you longer than usual.”

    “Grayson kept complaining about how you’re potentially dangerous.”

    “I’m lethal.”

    Damian snorts, “To everyone but Jason and Rosie.”

    You wave him away, “Go spoil your niece squirt.”

    “Technically she’s my cousin, Aunt Y/N.”

    You roll your eyes, “Be gone brat.”

    He shrugs and walks into your daughter’s room, settling back in with your book you listen to the sound of your daughter’s giggles and smile.

Humans are Space Orcs: Leviathan

Humanity joined the Galactic Confederacy just over four human generations ago. In that time they have gained respect, admiration, and fear from the other races in the Confederacy.

It usually takes five Gor (one Gor=20 years) for a species to change their Central government enough to incorporate the Confederacy as a part of the system.

Humanity rebuild their multinational governmental system to mirror the Confederacy and include the Confederacy within itself in just two Gor.

In that time they also sent out hundreds of researchers of every discipline to serve in different capacities throughout the Confederacy. They sent all knowledge and technology back to the Sol system and by the end of their fourth Gor of membership they had advanced their societies technology to the point of competing with the most advanced species.


The Terrans military capabilities advanced in tandem with their second Renaissance. Their ships used projectile rail cannons as well as fission warhead missiles. As if that wasn’t enough all of their marines are also trained to fight hand to hand with species twice their size. This coupled with their sheer ferocity makes them a force to be reckoned with.


I focus so heavily on their military prowess because, despite what other reports may say, I think humanity is single handedly responsible for saving the Confederacy.


It started when the Empire of Narlas had a new ruler come to power, Glantos Bly'thes. Xi was a Filpian who killed the previous emperor in single combat and then cannibalised xir. Next came the Empire “Negotiating” for control of key mining systems near their border.


The local races of the Confederacy refused and before long there were small skirmishes being fought for these systems. This brings the full attention of the Confederacy to bear witness to their new enemy. A few armadas were dispatched to the area to defend against the Empire.


That is when the Empire played it’s hand and brought in the Colossus, moon sized ships fitted with unspeakable amounts of armaments that were powered by the radiation from tiny black holes. One was enough to destroy all of the Armadas sent to defend the border. Then they sent thirteen more.


The Confederacy’s war council was wracked with shock and fear when the human ambassador approached them with a plan. If fear and desperation had not had such a tight grip on the council may have thrown out the plan and surrendered. Instead they took the plan, promoted the human ambassador to the war council and set out to the new task before them.


This was going to be the most costly endeavour ever undertaken in both lives and resources. The first thing they did was begin pumping out more Dreadnought class ships to throw at the Empire. These armadas were unofficially labeled Kamikaze fleets by the humans because Usually human captained ships would try to crash their ship into the Colosus death machines. Humans lead every fleet, and sometimes were the only crew in a fleet, during those years of destruction. 165 million humans died as well as 200 million of other species on the ships. The civilian casualties were in the billions.


It was at this point two things happened. The Confederacy surrendered and Humans launched the Leviathan from Sol 4 station.

The Leviathan was so named because of its resemblance to a behemoth, aquatic monster.

The ship was seven glar (10.2 km) in length. It had state of the art cloaking technology as well as a full complement of human designed weapons. The real reason for the ship’s design though was its main cannon. It fired a 2 ton tungsten rod at a one tenth the speed of light. Surprisingly the ship only has one human crewman who is suspended in a specially designed tank that prevents the G force of using the ship’s main gun from turning his body to paste.


The Leviathan would launch sneak attacks on the Colossus ships firing the rods at close range. After the first dozen or so assault the Empire was furious at the amount of damage this single, puny ship was doing. Each rod was creating impact craters so large it was affecting the singularity containment, not to mention the loss of lives in every attack.


At this point Earth launched the second Leviathan with an upgrade. Each of the rods was tipped with plutonium, meaning each rod now detonating with a nuclear explosion. The two then began to coordinate their attacks and after the first Leviathan would rip a section of the ship up the second one would attempt to rupture the containment around the black hole.


This system proved highly effective. Within an earth Month the two ships had destroyed 11 of the 14 Colossus ships. The final 3 were told to retreat back into their home territory. But the Leviathan pilots and the rest of humanity had different ideas. They followed the three ships to the center of Empire territory and began assaulting the final 3 Colossus in their home system. In the combat one tried to escape around the systems star when it fell into the Leviathan’s trap. The two ships fired on the Colossus forcing it into the star’s gravity then they breached the ship’s containment field. Within an hour the star had begun ripping itself apart. The Leviathan left a transmitter at the edge of the system explaining what they had done and what they promised to do if the Empire invaded Confederacy territory again.

“Why don’t you come over for dinner? My brother’s in town and he asked if you were coming over for dinner.”

He asked if you were coming over.

You stared down at your lit cellphone with the text from Minhee, your best friend since elementary school, a familiar rush of nerves bursting through your belly as you read it over and over.

He asked.
