jack: you’re in love with lardo and you have been since sophomore year shitty: that’s disgusting. and wrong. i don’t even get– why would– i’ve never been in love with anyone, anywhere. it’s none of your- you have- the nerve, the audacity, lardo used to be my boss, technically. and she is terrible, face-wise. and how- how- do I know, frankly, that you’re not in love with her?? maybe you are. maybe you’re trying to throw me off? hmm check and mate.
Okay, I’m hoping for some big battle against the Court of Owls at the end of the season that everyone gets involved in
And it’ll mean Eddie and Ozzie calling a temporary truce to their personal antagonism in order to survive the onslaught of Court assassins being sent after them (or whatever)
Then, during an ‘eye of the storm’ moment when they are hiding and unsure of their survival, they should take the time for a bit of emotional honesty. Which will be all serious and stuff - Eddie confessing he is glad Oswald survived and he is sorry he tried to kill him and Ozzie was right about them needing each other and stuff. And Ozzie would confess he still loves Ed and all that jazz
But MOST IMPORTANTLY it would include something like -
OSWALD [soft, genuine]: I’m sorry I killed Isabella.
Children of The Gods Ch. 5 - Demigod AU [Jason Todd x Reader]
A/n: Whoa!! Sorry I haven’t updated this series in so long. I knocked out my Trauma and Healing series and guess my brain was a bit tired from getting that done. Then I had my writers block, but it’s back! I’m going to be focusing on this more too. I hope you guys enjoy chapter 5!!
Your breathing was steady as your sword rested in its sheath. Hand staying on it’s hilt as while leading the group through the cave. Everyone was silent. Roy and Jason each had their bows raised, Kaldur was beside you with his sword out, Kori and Dick held up the rear with their swords, and Conner was on your otherside. The energy flowing through the cave was electrifying and got more intense as you made your way through the network of caves.
All of a sudden a low growl echoed through the cavern, making everyone stop in their tracks. Just ahead of you was an opening that lead into a larger room of the cave. “It’s in there.” You whispered and the others looked at you. Looking back you caught everyone’s gaze, “Okay. Stick to the plan. Kaldur and Conner, distract it. Roy and Jason attack from long range. Finally Dick, Kori, and I will take it out. Don’t try and be a hero, this isn’t going to be easy.” They all understood. “We’re with you on this [F/n]” Dick assured making you nod to him.
The next moment you turned around and led the group inside. The map laid in a box in the center of the seemingly empty room. Walking further in with caution. “Where is it?” Roy finally asked as everyone looked around. You searched the room with your eyes. Thinking, ‘It’s a serpent. They’re smart and sly. If it’s not on the ground then it’s…’ You looked up, seeing glowing eyes. “Get out of the way!” Yelling, everyone looked up too and rushed out of the way.
Mere seconds later the serpent dropped to the ground releasing a deafening roar. Quickly Roy let an arrow loose. It punctured the beast’s skin but it barely flinched. It roared again and locked on Roy. “Guys!” You yelled, Kaldur and Conner jumped in, grabbing the beast’s attention. While they kept it’s attention. Roy and Jason kept up their long range attacks. You were yelling to Dick and Kori, using the strategy of coming at it from different angles to confuse it.
You ran behind the serpent, dodging the whip of it’s tail by sliding under it. You watched as the serpent narrowed in on Conner. Taking the chance you cut in front and swiped at it’s underbelly, forming a deep gash. Dashing to get out of the way, Kaldur tried to catch it’s attention again but it stayed locked on you. When it lunged, you lifted your sword to block it’s fangs. Holding it back when an arrow was shot and hit it right in the eye, making it pull away from you roaring. Looking back Jason was lowering his bow.
You smiled and nodded to him before running at the serpent. “Kaldur! Give me a lift?” Pointing to the serpent’s new blindspot. He nodded and knelt down interlocking his fingers. Jumping he boosted you up while you drew your sword. With a swift motion you pushed the sword right through its skull. Letting go of the hilt it stuck in its head while it roared and fell. On your way down, you tucked your head and rolled on the ground to lessen the impact of the landing.
Everyone was a bit shocked to be honest. They weren’t expecting that. It really showed how skilled you and Kaldur are as warriors. Jason watched as you stood up, wiping the sweat from your face. Witnessing as you walked over to the now dead dragon. Pressing your boot to its head, you pulled the sword free and put it back in its sheath before walking over and taking the map from the box.
He was shocked as he watched you. Having literally just killed a dragon, you seemed barely fazed. Slipping the map into your bag you rejoined the group. “We need to get out of here before any monsters were attracted to the commotion.” Kaldur said as you approached them. Nodding in response, he led everyone out.
During the walk you had seemed to fall back from the group. Dick, Kori, and Roy were really excited and hyper from the adrenaline of the fight along with their success. Conner and Kaldur were walking with them, both trying to keep the three undercontrol along with sharing their excitement. Jason had been walking with them, but eventually looked back to see you trailing behind. Having expected to see you looking over the map, but instead saw you in deep thought.
He watched as you stared down at your feet, brows furrowing in thought every once in awhile. Slowing down he waited until you caught up to him. “Are you alright?” Asking as he began to walk with you. “Oh, uh, yeah.” You responded but he gave you a look that told you he wasn’t buying it. Sighing you told him the truth, “It’s just, this is all my fault. If I had taken better care of Garfield, this never would’ve happened. I should’ve been more careful.”
Jason didn’t like to hear you talk like that. He knew the struggles a leader can go through. You were in charge of a whole camp, there was only so much you could do. “You shouldn’t beat yourself up like that. You couldn’t control what he was going to do. What matters is what you’re doing now. You’re out here, facing these trials, to get him back and safe. I know it’s hard to be a leader, and sometimes you have to make tough calls. But it’s also important to stand behind those calls and not second guess yourself.” Jason could see you relax, the way the tenseness in your shoulders seemed to lessen.
“What would you have done? If one of the people you were supposed to be protecting had a tragedy like that? And had to leave?” Jason’s eyes met yours as you asked that question. He thought for a moment before answering, “I would’ve done the same thing.”
Jason nodded with a small reassuring smile. “Anyone in your position would have.”
You smiled at him before looking away from his eyes bashfully. “Thank you Jason. That means a lot.” He nodded in response before looking ahead to see the distance that had been put between them and the group. Looking back at you he nodded his head in the direction of everyone. “We should catch up with them.”
“Oh yeah, let’s go.” You started to speed up but Jason stopped you by the arm. “And um.” He caught your attention. “If you need to talk about anything or for advice, I’m here.” Smiling you nodded at him, “Thanks Jason, I may take you up on that.” After saying that he watched you speed up to meet everyone again. He smiled to himself while watching you. For some reason you made him feel happy and nervous at the same time. Just the way you lead and have the respect of so many people. He can’t help but admire you. Now he sees why Bruce wanted him to go to the camp so bad.
Chuckling to himself he shook off his thoughts to catch up too. You all had to find somewhere to stay before the night and to formulate a new plan. But he had a good feeling with you leading, everything was already figured out.
Also guys! Let me know if you’d rather see more of this series over something like requests! I could put this as top priority.
A/n Whoa, two updates in one day! What drugs did I take? I’m kidding, don’t do drugs my dear sweet children.
It had been 3 weeks since I met y/n. She’s absolutely wonderful. How her h/c hair flows around her soft face, how her beautiful e/c eyes sparkle when she talks about something she loves. How she slightly bites her lip when she tries not to laugh at one of my silly jokes. Everything about her was perfect to me, but the one thing that really made me fall for her was her intelligence.
I’d shown her my case after two days, and she’d been helping me with my creatures ever since. I watched as she played with Dougal, the niffler was sat on her shoulder. A soft sound broke me out of my daydream. I looked down to see Pickett angrily waving his hands.
“I can’t ask her out.” I told him.
“She’ll reject me.” I answered as he asked why. Ignoring the rest of Pickett’s protests, I averted my gaze back to y/n. Soon night fell, and the stars began to appear. She smiled an ran towards me.
“Come on, Newt.” She said. “Let’s go watch the stars.” Her soft hand reached for mine as she dragged me to an open field. We laid down on the grass, our hands still intertwined.
“Look, you see those stars shaped like a w over there?” I nodded, examining the soft glow of the twinkling stars that reflected in her bright eyes.
“That’s Cassiopeia. Can you see that glow a little more to the right? That’s the Andromeda nebula. Its light took 2.2 million years to reach our planet, which means we’re actually looking straight at history. It’s the nearest major galaxy to the milky way.” We had been staring up at the stars for about half an hour when a shooting star flashed by. I closed my eyes, thinking of the one thing I wanted most: y/n. I turned my head, but she was already looking at me. Our faces only millimeters apart. Before I knew what was happening her lips were on mine. After a few seconds she pulled away, our foreheads pressed together.
“Seems like my wish came through.” We said at the same time. She giggled and snuggled up into my chest, listening to my rapid heartbeat.
Hey guys! Whoa~ I haven’t updated in WEEKS! Sorry, I kinda busted my good drawing hand. So I had to take a break & slow down on the updates. Might go see a doc if it gets worse but for now, it’s rest & workouts. To all of you who love drawing, please take care of that hand of yours.
Anyway, Tumblr keeps reminding me there’s a new Big Hero 6 trailer out and I’m avoiding it like the plague. Why? Because I’m DEFINITELY watching it on opening night. Anymore promos from now on is wading through spoiler territory orzzzz But hey, that’s not gonna stop me from drawing the leading ladies above XD
PS: CASS HAMADA. WHAT A WOMAN! <3 /whistling_like_a_mad_wolf
I am Captain Hornigold and this is my crew. We’re sailors like yourselves, but quite unalike in our purpose. For we intend to take all that you own. Yet no harm shall befall any man, so long as he remains at ease. Is that clear?
