YJ:Rise of the Scarlette Torch:part 21 "Alert solar flares have reached caution level"
The dark knight was interrupted from analyzing Nat's blood by the alarm. Walking towards the Watchtowers main screens, a bright red sign flashed before his eyes, warning him about the solar flares that have been happening recently. Apparently their strong enough to cause caution. Pressing the speaker button, Batman called up Fire. When the green haired Brazilian arrived he told her,
"I've got a mission for you"
"Come on ST you got this!"
"Are you really gonna let a girl beat you?"
Looking up, I saw a drop of sweat pour down Wally's face. An idea suddenly flashed in my mind as I ever so slightly heated up my hand, forcing Wally's hand down on the table.
"Aha! I won!" I yelled as I leaped up from the table and my arms sho

After the fight at Santa Prisca, the team was kind of in a win loose situation, we won the battle, but not the war. Yet we still haven't found out who the mole was.
"We have reason to feel proud of yesterday's victories. But one thing has not changed." Aqua lad told us as we walked in the debriefing area of the cave.
"Somehow, the bad guys are still getting inside intel about us." Robin said.
"Yeah, but at least we know none of us were the mole." Wally always tried to see the bright side of things. His happiness is something that, even though I've been grouchy the past few weeks, somehow keeps me afloat, besides from Roy.
"That's correct. The mole was Red Arrow." Batman concluded, bringing up files on Red arrow.
I'm sorry, did I hear wrong? Maybe it was the pills jacking up my hearing. They've been doing really weird stuff to me lately, I'm itchy all over, my throat feels sore, tiredness, grouchiness, and other stuff I won't m

Today was the day that several powerful heroes, including Red Arrow, were to be included in the famous Justice League. While the ceremony was taking place outside the hall of Jusitce, the team was inside, watching the ceremony from a large t.v.
"The Justice League was formed for two reasons. First, as an acknowledgement that no single individual, no matter how powerful, can solve all the world's problems alone. And second, to uphold the values of Truth, Liberty and Justice.
"That last one's even in the name. These five heroes have sworn to uphold those values." Superman gave a speech about these incredible heroes and why the League was formed.
"You are watching live coverage of the Justice League's induction of its five newest members. Looks like the entire League showed up to welcome the new blood.
Everyone, from Batman to Captain Marvel." Cat Grant reported from watching the ceremony in the crowd.
"I'm glad they did

"Ladies and Gentlemen, Welcome to the Haly International Travelling Circus! Where the world in the center ring is your oyster and these are our latest pearls! The Daring Dangers! Dan Danger, Dawn Danger, Diane Danger, Dane Danger, Dean Danger, and Destanie Danger! You'll never see another trapeze act like this, folks, And all of it, without a net!" The ring master introduced the "Danger siblings".
'Destanie Danger' was Natasha in disguise as her and Megan, Conner, Roy, and Robin are on an undercover mission at a circus. Destanie was on the ground with the others while she did tricks as Conner, "Dean'' threw her up in the air. Natasha was in the middle of flipping when she looked up and saw that Robin had missed Megan's hand and was falling.
"Robin!" Yelled the Martian.
"Don't blow our cover!" Commanded the 13 year old
"But saving your life's OK?" Asked Conner as he threw a barrel in the air, robin landing on it and grabbing 'Dawn's' hand.

Outside the cave, it was quiet, peacefull, just the way Natasha liked it. The dark red head was outside of the cave, feeling the slight breeze on a November day. She was wearing a large hoodie that Roy let her borrow with skinny blue jeans and blue toms. The team her sat with her legs in front of her, her large sketch pad in her lap with a variety of graphite pencils on her side. Whenever she was calm, Nat would come to her secret little place outside of the mountain. It had overlapping trees that blocked the sunlight, but let little seeps of rays come through. She was sitting there, drawing a bird that was in the nest right in front if her. It was a blue hummingbird and was sleeping cozily in its wooden nest.
Suddenly, she felt a pair of warm, string hands come over her eyes. The girls' first reaction was to fight, but she relaxed when she heard his voice.
"Gee I wonder who? Does this person wear red and black at night?" She

"Now?" Natasha whined to Roy about her blindfold. It was noon on Friday and when the redhead admitted to never going to amusement park, Roy had promised to take her to one the next day. No team, just the two of them. The could had decided to not tell the team of their relationship, even though Natasha felt like she should tell Wally.
"We'll tell them when were ready" he assured her.
"Yes sunshine, you can take it off now" Roy chuckled at his girlfriend who hated the nickname, as he untied the bandana around her emerald green eyes. She rolled her eyes at the comment as she took in the scene before her. They were at a fair, stands of games and popcorn. She could see a family at a booth, a dad throwing rings at dozens of coke bottles. He managed to get a ring around the top and received a giant teddy bea

Are you sure you don't want to go Nat? Wally asked right before they were getting ready to go to their school Halloween dance .
Inspecting her nails, she replied, "Nah. I'm good. I'm not really into Halloween and the whole creepy mask thing. I think we have enough masks already" she chuckles.
Shrugging he bent down and petted wolf. The red head looked up from her dark ruby nils to witness Megan wrapping Conner with toilet paper which she believed to be a zombie. She rolled her eyes and walked over to Wally.
"Have fun tonight wall-man. You going with anyone?"
"Nah, I'm a lone-wolf" he smirked.
"Really? Why don't you take Artemis? You'll guys will have fun." She winked and smiled.
"I think I'll pass." Commented Wally even though he was hiding a small blush.
Shrugging her shoulders, she walked back to the couch and turned on the t.v.when the two other female fighters entered the room.
"Hey Nat!" Zatanna gree

"I'm coming after you I promise!" Roy assured the terrified red head, before she disappeared between the teleportation.
Gasping for air, Natasha shot right up from her bed, clutching her rose red sheet on the bed. The last two days Natasha has been having nightmares about the exercise that went wrong a few days ago. No one was faring well with the trauma, and Miss Martian was doing worse because she's technically responsible for it.
Hearing a small noise outside her door, she quickly threw fires at the door, which proved only to be a squeak within the flooring. Still trying t calm down, she put her right hand to her forehead, trying to block out the images of the exercise, only to find that there was sweat running along her face, combined with a tears threatening to escape her eyes. Refusing, she quickly shut them both, not allowing them to slip through.

"Tornado? did you-" Zatanna came on screen as the whole team watched several members of the league dissenegrate before their eyes.
"Yes. We saw. Celestial defenses have failed. Initiate all terrestrial measures."
"Affirmative. See you in the field." Zatanna responded, signing off.
"Red tornado, should we go out there?" natasha asked their den mother.
"I must join the League. We will protect the planet at all costs. But should we fail, the responsibility falls to you." He constructs the team, answering the red head.
"We stand ready." aqualad said.
Natasha then saw Robin put on the news after Red Tornado zeta-d out of the cave.
"Are they going to be able to take that t
Delusion becomes meDelusion becomes me
it echoes with the listless duty
of confining me
within the horrid tyranny
of my own fiction.
There will be no coup
no revolution nor rebellion
no cries for reality
nor exuberance of freedom
only the echoes of duty.
The monotonous drown of forgeries,
atrocities, and apologies,
the dying screams
of impoverished souls
of fancy and fantasy,
the rapacious shouts
of fallacious joy over
the births of new yet
lovely children of fate and belief,
more loudly the gunfire
these shouts are meant to cloud
horribly loud in themselves
though they quiet some of the screams,
and finally the repetition
of my own whispers
,my own words,
repeating the implication
and imagery of every sound
as is my duty.
My duty t know
every tragedy and ever

18 days left till 18.
and i feel x plus something
equals the sum of adulthood.
and i’m missing the formula
to add that math up
so i subtract myself from it
in hopes of finding the answer.
damn it to hell, i missed a step.
so i make it a fraction
and hope that divides a prime number.
but that only multiplies the anxiety
because i know that doesn’t come out real.
and i can’t separate myself from reality
because what you add on one side
you must do to the other
when the variable isn’t known.
(and basically, you can be imaginative
but you have to make it a reality
or it’s just an idea
and ideas don’t get you paid
and realities eat money
like hungry hippos
but democrats are donkeys
and republicans are elephants.)
and no matter how many moments
i try to make into a solvable problem
the issue only comes out as x.
so let’s put it into a science.
i was born on the 19th of october,
Indie Wraps Around My EarsIndie Wraps Around My Ears
i like indie rap because it’s art
trapped under a stigma of astigmatism
which is probably why my favorite rappers
wear art frame glasses to see miss
and conception. or somethin’.
i like indie rap because i see myself
in the dudes who weren’t popular enough
to make it into the main’s ear,
soundwaves, or bloodstream
but those other weirdos
wearing sweater vests
with a gold cross linked round necks,
bow ties and nine fifty fitteds.
i like indie rap because i can whisper
broken assonance confused for direct rhymes
and snort lines and hide behind bars
and listen to prison songs
without ending up under the jail.
i like indie rap because i can repeat words
and look cool so words slice through eyes
like swords through irises
because i swore that i’d write
what sounds right and how i’d want
even if you don’t understand how i pen.
so even if my pupil can't pin
down these tones, rhythm, and space
we know tones sigh l
Relief. Relief, oh sweet relief
Miles and miles away
Now, like a nice warm bed
It floods me like the Nile,
Nourishing the irrigation of my veins;
Oh relief, tears of joy
And I will only be honest in this once -
I feared you had left already,
And I had not known you well enough
To understand this.
Today, I am happy
QuartzI am your enigma
I am all that you despise
I am all that you adore
And I never leave your side
I consume the world around you
I am every step you take
I hover just below you
And make your heart ache
I am everywhere and nowhere
I am alive and I am dead
I’m in your head and in your heart
The monster under your bed
I am the caresses you crave
And the kisses you desire
I am the love you deserve
The attention you serve
So I’m not so pure and clear
And I don’t have a golden sheen
My cheeks aren’t sweetly rosy
My purple grace is not mien
My skin’s not milky or sublime
I’m not even shiny gray
I am just a fragile crystal
Almost black from decay
All I could sayIs take care
No harm will be wish upon you
No hatred thrown at you
I will not run after you like I used to
I will not explain myself anymore
I told you enough
So take care
Hermes' Wings Need to be ShinedI'm replacing my eyes so I can stare at the ceiling
and watch as the cars' shadows run past
my window; I'm sick of this bed. I'm tired of this sickness.
I'm tired of being called diseased like I'll get you sick,
stay away from me.
You never left. You never left me alone.
I want to be alone, away from you who sends me endless messages
a day saying how I've done you wrong and caused you so much stress
that I've depressed you, and yet you still come to me with your
"baby, I need you"s; and I can't lie,
I've stretched myself far enough "baby", what you need
is to find someone else who will be your mother
because I'm done "baby"ing you.
I will not rock your cradle, or your world, or
your rocking chair when you get old 'cause god knows
I'm ailing from that motion and I'm just waiting 'till
I'm kneeling before toilet water because I've been struck with sea sickness.
Maybe I brought you good, but god damn it this
this is no good for me to be tied up by your threats of suicide;
Almost and closeWhat is death but the lack of beauty
that I find in you and me,
the trees that accompany my poetry,
the sky that feels lost,
vast and knowledgeable as it is,
in front of my pleas?
Don't blame the music
sometimes, only it could seal my wounds
and stop the bleeding
but I've given some thought
to the new slate, a pristine name -
I could let my next reincarnation
bring truthful fulfillment
To This DayAnd if you can't see anything beautiful about yourself,
Get a better mirror
Look a little closer
Stare a little longer
Because there's something inside you that made you keep trying
Despite everyone who told you to quit
You built a cast around your broken heart and signed it yourself
You signed it
THEY WERE WRONG!
