On a Dark Windy NightOn a dark, windy night, Sunburst had been stuck with patrol duties, with Mahoe of all people. She didn't mind the plant-man, but something about him threw her off. She glowed faintly in the darkness, illuminating their surroundings, as Mahoe followed on a giant, walking, vine-thing."You look frustrated." he commented, looking up at her through his mask. Sunburst sighed and adjusted her ponytail before responding."Just tired. Nighttime isn't my time." she descended a bit, her glow fading slightly."Hey, come sit down, take a load off." Mahoe replied, pointing a gloved hand to the leafy platform he stood on. Sunburst eyed him warily."No tricks?" she asked, hovering a few feet above him."No tricks." he affirmed, nodding his head and holding a hand out to her. Sunburst slid her golden-gloved hand into his and alighted upon the platform, taking a seat and crossing her legs."So now we wait." she whispered, and she could swear she saw Mahoe grin.
In DangerMarcie held onto her satchel as she ran around the destruction being caused at her university. There was no where for her to change into her costume, her bow and arrow stored safely in her dorm, and no way for her to get there. She cursed in French under her breath, unaware of the explosion, the shrapnel ricocheting off the brick wall; straight for her head."Watch out!" a voice yelled, and suddenly Marcie felt herself being lifted in a pair of strong arms and moved out of the danger zone. Wearing a peasant skirt might not have been one of her best decisions that day, as it tore on a stray bit of metal as her saviour carried her away. "There, safe and sound." a familiar cocky voice said, setting her down on the ground."You!" she yelled, turning to face the man who'd saved her. Sure enough, it was Blockbuster, the cocky superhero who she had the displeasure of working with. Her outburst seemed to have pleased him, a smirk crossing his face."So you've heard of me?" he said, walking tow
Not Just a CloneRed Arrow, the Cadmus clone, stood up from the table after declaring his intentions to find the real Speedy. While Green Arrow and the Team watched him go, Kendra slipped into the shadows, following him down the hallway."I know you're there Kendra.""Damnit." she muttered, sliding out smoothly, her costume rippling around her. Red Arrow looked down at her impassively."Well? Have anything to say?" he muttered monotonously."Only one thing." Silhouette admitted, taking a nervous, shuddering step forward. "You may be a clone of Speedy, but you are your own person Roy, and
don't stop being yourself, please?" she whispered, looking up at him."I'll bring you the real Speedy, and you might be able to be happy." he said wryly, before turning to leave via zeta tube. "Goodbye Kendra.""But I fell in love with you," she whispered, as the tubes flared blue and he vanished from sight.
First MeetingsArrowette nocked another arrow, aiming it at the red and black clad young man standing across the rooftop. She narrowed her eyes, a curl falling out of her ponytail and into her face. With a huff, she blew it out of her eyes and watched as he raised his hands."Whoa Bessie, I'm not going to hurt you," he said easily, a smile on his face."My name is not Bessie." she replied, adjusting her aim. He nodded, and took a step forward."Look, I'm not going to hurt you. I'm here to help. Heard you were looking for Kronos," he said, eyes meeting hers."And how did you hear that?""I've got friends," he shrugged. "The name's Blockbuster, but you probably knew that.""Your ego needs to be taken down a few notches," she grumbled, lowering the golden bow. "Arrowette.""Charmed," Blockbuster smirked, taking another few steps towards her. "How can I be of service?" he said, looking down at her with an infuriating smirk. Arrowette frowned and backed away."Tell me everything.""As you wish," he said,
TacosAdrenaline coasted by Owlet, tugging her hair and spinning her chair around. She grimaced, glaring at him through her mask."Would you leave me alone?" she sighed, turning the chair around to face the super-computer, various mugshots adorning the screen."I'm bored," he complained, rolling his shoulder with a wince. "And still healing.""Well then why don't you go play some video games, since you're not being productive here." Owlet muttered, cross-referencing her suspects. Adrenaline almost pouted, crossing his arms."Annoying you is so much more fun though.""I know you're lying." Owlet said, closing her eyes, and reaching for his mind. He immediately threw up a wall, blocking her out."You might have known, but now you don't," Adrenaline grinned, jogging backward and around the base."Just
go get me a taco or something." she sighed, waving him off. With a grin, he ran out of the base and was back in two minutes."Fresh from Mexico," he laughed, setting the bag on her table."Yo
The Bronze BabeBullet whizzed through the air, her hair flying behind her, cool on the patch behind her ear. She reveled in flying, especially on a gorgeous day like today. She could feel her skin soaking up the rays, and pushed herself further, faster through the sky until she was only a bronze blur in the sky."The fuck?" she muttered, as she began to lose altitude and speed. Looking up, her eyes widened beneath her mask as she passed a storm cloud. "Oh fuck." she repeated, pulling into a dive, her eyes squeezed shut."Gotcha!" a voice yelled, a little to close to Bullet's ear for her comfort. Bullet cracked open an eye to meet a pair of bright blue eyes behind an even brighter blue mask."Shockwave's the name, electricity's my game." the girl laughed, alighting on a roof. "Barely caught you too. If I hadn't, you might be mush on the Kennedy Expressway.""Bullet," the bronze-clad hero nodded, climbing out of the girl's - Shockwave - arms. "And thanks.""Not a problem," Shockwave grinned, flipping h
