A/N: you know how I said this would
be out Monday? Ha HAHA ah
was extravagant to say the least. The room had a high ceiling, chandeliers made
out of crystals that even one was probably worth more than your entire
apartment complex. And then there was the floor length dress you were wearing. The
dress’s open back and plunging neckline added with it’s shade of black that contradicted
with the bright colors other women were in were sure to draw your target’s eyes.
Which is exactly what you needed.
Robin’s family was a
bit of a mystery. The Teen Titans knew and respected that as best they could.
It was just hard sometimes.
Or: five times the
Teen Titans wondered about Dick Grayson without knowing they were wondering
about Dick Grayson.
TT AU with Damian as
16 y/o TT!Robin, mostly grown up and much more comfortable than his eleven year
old canon self.
Starfire and Raven were the two newest to the world—growing
up in another dimension or another planet entirely was definitely a pretty good
way to avoid TV news and pop culture.
While Raven put effort into getting to know her new world,
it was a rather localized affair. She made a point of knowing what nightclubs
and cafes had open poetry mics, an overview of the governmental systems
currently in place, how to obtain a library card, and other such things that
directly affected her day-to-day existence. Starfire seemed to enjoy the thrill
of discovery and the inevitable subsequent sharing of culture that would occur
whenever her teammates discovered something she had not previously encountered,
and likewise enjoyed telling her teammates of similar practices on Tamaran, or
the lack of them, as the case may have been.
Usually, their lack of connection with Earth culture (and
very specifically, urban, Pacific Coast, United States culture) meant very
little in the grand scheme of things. If they were caught off balance, most
civilians gave them a pass because slightly strange faux pas were hardly the
worst or strangest thing costumed heroes had done, and the Titans at least were
sanctioned. Someone would explain
things, get it all cleared up within a few minutes, and any destruction of
property was written off and paid for in the cash pool specifically set aside
for the inevitable accidents a group of superheroes would cause. So long as
their mistakes didn’t cost anyone their lives there was compensation, and the
lack of Earth knowledge was an eternal work-in-progress.
All things considered, it should have been expected that neither
Raven nor Starfire knew about Nightwing.

Hello friends! Guess who’s back? Spoiler - it’s me. So I have a confession - I love soulmate AUs. I’ve not written Pietro in a while so I eased myself into this by focusing predominantly on another character. It needs a second part to finish it off which I’ll upload soon. Hopefully the plot is twisty and interesting enough for you guys. Thanks to @sxnali for the request; I loved it. Enjoy, my darlings!
(if you don’t mind) can you
do a soulmate au where the first words they say to each other are tattooed
somewhere on the other’s body? with pietro please? (im sorry if this sent twice
i think i hit send in the middle of typing this but im not sure oops)
‘Almost a Mistake’ (Part 1)
There was a reason that New York was considered the city
that never sleeps. Regardless of the hour, life was buzzing, left, right, and
centre. Cars clamoured the roads in lines of traffic, and birds flew overhead,
seeking and taking every opportunity amongst the crowds of hungry people that
swarmed the streets.
The smell of hot dogs was prominent – especially on a
Saturday when everyone and his mate was out on the streets. You wished that you
could say you too had come out for fun but work had called you in for overtime,
and the coming winter’s energy bills convinced you to take it.
With your headphones safely nestled on your head, you
navigated the bustling tourists with your eyes on your iPod, trying to pick the
best tune for the next leg of your journey. You’d splashed out on new
headphones and for good reason – there were noise cancelling. As far as you
were concerned, that made them worth the cost, tuning out the soundtrack of the
city as you walked.
Each time you skipped a song, there was a moment of quiet
where the world bled in. You heard horns beeping, steps smacking against the
pavement, and even someone shouting in the distance. Probably a food vendor
trying to sell to a passer-by. You skipped another song and got another flash
of reality. Cooing pigeons, roaring engines, and still a person shouting. It
was definitely male, and getting closer.
Steven, remember last year when I built that model wind tower for you and you wrote those poems for me?
And you said you'd never switch homework assignments with me again.
For good reason. My teacher had a hard time believing I wrote "Tra-la the joy of tulips blooming, Ha-ha the thrill of bumblebees zooming. I'm alive and I dance, I'm alive though death is always looming." When I finally convinced her that I had, she asked me if I needed to talk to the school counselor.
A/N: I’m not sure if this will be a series, please tell me if you want a second part
Summary: During the saddest part of your life, you made the biggest decision ever.
all started with three simple, but meaningful words. Something that
you hoped to hear, but now when you look back, you wish you never
did. It was amazing while it lasted and as fast it started, it ended
a deep breath you moved your hand higher. You were climbing on the
Avengers tower. The wind almost knocked you away a couple of times.
time, you are doing this Wade. ˝ You said into your earpiece.
Hearing his laugh, you rolled your eyes. You were already on the
thirtieth floor, almost on the roof. After a while you finally
climbed on the solid ground. You sat down catching your breath and
looking down over the edge.
