So heres a spooky fic for Halloween. It’s okay, not amazing. It was surprisingly hard to write. Mostly cause my minds been on Xmas for the last two months. Anyway enjoy.
Kate smiled, showing off her fangs.
“They look so real.” I said.
She tapped it with her finger. “It feels real. I reckon if I bit someone it’d do some serious damage.”
“Maybe you should start wearing them on patrol.”
She laughed. “It’d sure as hell shock the bad guys, if nothing else. Cloak please.”
I hand her her cloak. “I can’t believe you’ve never went as a vampire before.”
“Just never crossed my mind I guess.”
“It’s like one of the classic. Vampire, ghost, zombie, and… uh- damn, I know I’m forgetting someone.”
She laughed and twirled in her outfit. “What do yah think?”
“Just buy a old castle in the middle of nowhere, change your name to Dracula and I’d reckon it’d be perfect.”
“Bold of you to assume I don’t own a castle.”
“Wait, really?” I asked. She cheekily smiled as she walked out of the room. “Kate? We’re you serious?”
I followed Kate down to the cave, begging her to tell me whether she was joking or not. I quickly realised she was enjoying my displeasure so I stopped my questioning.
I spotted Bruce and Jay talking by the Zeta as we entered the cave. They were dressed as Superman, and Wonder Woman.
“Wonder Woman doesn’t carry a gun.” Bruce pointed to the holster.
“This Wonder Woman does.” Jay argued.
Jay sighed and set the holster and gun down on the desk. “Fine.”
“The blue looks good on you.” I siad to Bruce as we reached them.
He scoffed. “I don’t know how Clark wears this all day.”
“If you didn’t want to wear it, you shouldn’t have made a bet with Jay.”
“He cheated. I know he did.”
“You can’t prove it.” Jay giggled.
“Are you sure you’ll be alright by yourself?” Bruce asked.
“Bruce, I’m not a child, plus if anything goes wrong, I know where Alfred hides some of his guns.”
He sighed. “Please tell me that’s not true.” I flashed a cheeky smile at him. “Alfred will be back about twelve.”
Kate ruffled my hair. “We’ll be back sometime afte that. Don’t wait up.”
“And don’t have to much fun while we’re away.” Jay joked.
The three headed for the Zeta. “Have fun!” I shouted after them as they dissappeared.
I was alone. Alfred had brought Damien and some of his friends trick or treating and the rest of the family are at the League’s Halloween party. The house was completely empty.
“What to do? What to do?” I said as I absent mindly walked through the house.
I wasn’t in any mood to sit down and watch a movie or anything. After a while of pacing around the living room an idea hit me. I could explore the attic. It must be huge in this place, plus it’s the only room, I know of, that I haven’t been in.
I quickly made my way to the entrance to the attic on the third floor. I pulled down the steps leading up. At first glance it didn’t look like anything special. A dusty old room with objects covered in tarps. Only difference, it seemed to go on forever.
After what felt like hours of exploring I had only come across a few note worthy objects. One of them was huge chest. It looked like something a magician would use. The label read “G. Zatarra”. I made a mental note to ask Bruce about that later.
I stopped in front of a large rectangular siloute and pulled the tarp away. It was a huge picture. Dick had told me about these. Everytime he’d get a new kid Bruce had one made. The most recent one was hung above the fireplace, while Bruce kept the old ones in his room. Why was this one up here? I looked at the faces. Alfred, Bruce, Dick, Babs, and a young boy I didn’t recognise.
I was about to inspect it closer when the sound of footsteps behind me startled me. “Hello? Bruce? Kate?”
I heard the noise again. This time by the ladder. I headed towards it. Nothing. The dust must be going to my head. Time to head down. I climbed down and shut the ladder behind me.
I was heading downstairs when I heard it again. This time in the nearby room. Kate’s room. I leaned against the door and listened. I could hear footsteps behind the door. I knocked. “Kate?”
No reply. I tried the knob. Unlocked. Not like her to leave it unlocked. I pushed it open a crack. “Kate?”
Silence. I pushed it the rest of the way. The room was empty. I crept to the bathroom door. I couldnt hear anyone behind it. I opened it. Nothing. I must be going crazy.
I jolted around as the bedroom door shut. Someone was definitely here. I crept to the dresser and grabbed the empty vase sitting on it. Better then nothing.
I could hear footsteps outside the door. The knob began to turn. I ready myself. The door opened and Kate walked in. “Jesus Christ Ashleigh! What are you doing in here?”
I lowered the vase. “I- I thought I heard someone in here.”
“Maybe it was a ghost.” She joked.
“Ha ha.” I sarcastically said. “What are you doing back so early?”
“Left my phone behind.”
I glanced to the top of the beside locker. Sure enough her phone sat charging. I grabbed it and handed it to her.
“Funny. I swore I locked this door.”
“Funny. Yeah.” I lollles around for anything out of the ordinary. Nothing.
“Ashleigh you’re shaking.”
“Guess I’m just a little jumpy. It being Halloween and all.”
We stepped out of the room. “I can stay with you, if you want?” Kate said.
“No. No. It’s fine.”
We both jumped at the sound of footsteps running towards us. Kate turned, ready to fight, but no-one was there.
“You heard that too. Right?” I asked.
“Yes.” Kate confirmed. “Probably just Alfred.” She tried to rationalise.
“Why would Aflred be running down the halls?”
“Oh. Yeah. Probably. That makes sense.”
“On second thoughts, can you stay?”
“Yeah.” She looked to me. “Let’s go… watch a movie.”
“Mind if I grab some candy first?”
“It’s Halloween, of course not.”
We took one last glance down the hall and went off to watch a movie and let the events faded into my memories.
We sat down in the living room and watched some halloween movies. Nothing too spooky. About half twelve we heard Alfred and the kids come in.
Damien strolled by us, followed by Jon, Maps, the two dogs, and the cat. “Damien!” I yelled after him.
They stopped and turned. “Yes?”
“Was the cat with you all night?”
I looked to Kate. “No reason.” She said and we turned back to our movie. The kids left.
“You don’t think it was a ghost do you?” I asked her.
“Nah, just an old pipe or something.”
I nevously laughed. “Is it strange that I believe in ghosts?”
“Trust me Ashleigh, there real.”
“You’ve seen one?”
“We run into a lot of strange things in our profession.”
We turned back to the TV. “My mother always said that I shouldn’t be scared of ghosts. It’s the living I should fear.”
Kate put an arm around me. “You don’t have to be afraid of anything as long as I’m here.”
I leaned into her. “Thanks Kate.”
Happy Halloween y’all 🎃👻🔮⚰️🕯
HAPPY HALLOWEEN 🎃👻🦇
Adventures of Super Sons #1
I’m visiting smallville(my hometown lol) just to get away from the city for a bit, leave the vigilantes behind, get some country￼ air. you know, relax. SO TELL ME WHY IN THE HELL EVERY SINGLE BAT CHILD WAS THERE???????
Harley Quinn shouting “Nobody asked you, Duck Boy!” was probably my favorite part of Joker War. Especially because Tim looked like he had no idea wtf she was even talking about.
Request: Can I please request something with “have I been kidnapped?” + “Um.. that’s unclear”. Go crazy with it.
Warning: car crash, uh, swearing, cringe (I was ¾ done this and realized I hated it so, uh, Sorry Amanda)
A/N: Reporting to you live and Tipsy friends what’s good

San Francisco usually wasn’t a crazy city. Sure the traffic sucked, but at least the views were nice. The local shops always had something interesting and you were guaranteed to find a coffee shop on every block. Over all, you were glad you moved there, it was a nice change in your life - one that you needed.
However, when this group of so called ‘Titans’ showed up, things got pretty out of control. Buildings got destroyed, people were put in harms way with the sudden increase in villains showed up to take these guys out. You hadn’t had the luxury of running into any of them, hopefully you wouldn’t have to.

“So what are you being for Halloween?” Kon had asked when he got to the Kent’s place.
“Superboy!” Jon smiled, making Lois chuckle under her breath.
“Jon, you get to be Superboy everyday?” Kon couldn’t help but raise an eyebrow. “Why would you want to be Superboy for Halloween?”
Jon had looked at Conner like he was an idiot, then shrugged and just went, “You’ll see.”
