Superboy gets brushed off by Superman one too many times, and decides to do something that Superman would never, ever do. Something that only Superman's greatest enemy had the balls to do.

"Superboy, why are there forty cakes in the cave?"

What is it with me and cracky prompts?

Superboy has a lot of knowledge in his head. He knows advanced calculus, the history of the world, both modern and ancient, strategy, economics, politics, journalism, and also happens to be able to remember every heist and world domination scheme by any villain, ever.

It’s a handy predictor when it comes to being a hero, really. He can pretty much tell what any villain is planning, even if he can’t always be bothered to take the time to think about it.

So when Superman says, “No, I can’t come to Mount Justice; someone’s exciting the volcanoes in the Pacific,” Superboy does something stupid.

This isn’t a new thing for him, but he’s never had to think about how to be stupid before

So he sits down and thinks, and remembers all the heists and thefts and plans by any villain related to Superman, and especially Lex Luthor. Superman hates Lex Luthor. And having Superman hate him would at least mean that he was paying attention, right?

So he goes through his mental catalog. He doesn’t want to hurt anyone, or cause property damage. He just wants to prove he can do something Superman can’t, is all. And then, towards the end of the list, he comes across it. It’s odd and strange, but it’s relatively harmless.

Cameron would be proud of him.

M’gann floats into the kitchen to prepare snacks, and freezes. Then, she flies down the hall and drag Artemis in.

It’s the smell that brings Wally, and with him comes Robin. And Kaldur makes his way there when M’gann broadcasts for him to.

There’s no room for anyone inside, because there are cakes everywhere. On the counters, on the table, on the floors, and in the middle is Conner, looking around him with no little confusion.

When he sees them, Conner looks up at them, and says, “Do I eat them? It doesn’t say what happens next.”

“What?” Wally asks. “Dude, what’s you do, rob a bakery?”

And Conner looks away at a pink cake with fondant sitting to his left, and doesn’t answer.

“You did!” Artemis shrieks. “You stole these cakes!”

And Conner bites his lip and doesn’t tell them he made them himself, because everyone has to think he stole them, or it’s not going to work. “When no one was looking,” he confirms instead.

“That’s…” Robin stops to count, because a lot is a subjective amount. “That’s forty cakes.”

Wally goggles in disbelief. “Even I can only eat about ten cakes, and that’s like, as many as four tens!”

“Can I have some?” Artemis asks, eyeing the triple chocolate tuxedo cake near the microwave.

“No! M’gann says, “We have to return them!”

“No!” Conner contradicts. “They’re mine! And we have to tell Superman about them!”

“About…the forty cakes?” Kaldur asks, confused.

“Yes!” he says. “They’re my forty cakes, and I stole them. And that’s terrible. Right?”

And they see the pleading in his eyes, and make the connection. “Yeah,” Robin says slowly. “You stole forty cakes. That’s a lot of cakes.”

“And they’re just harmless, innocent cakes,” Wally expounds.

Artemis nods. “They never hurt anyone.”

Megan looks between everyone, and then back at Superboy. “Yes,” she says slowly. “That’s forty cakes.” She doesn’t know what else to say, so she grasps on what Wally said, earlier. “That’s…as many as four tens?”

“Yes,” Kaldur agrees, and motions for Robin to contact Superman. “And that’s terrible.”

this is so adorable!! I love Superboy's thought process in this, it shows just how unwanted and unloved he feels. And somehow, I think young justice would totally do this.

Oh my god.

I've never said this to anyone before. But... um... can I marry you?

This is the most wonderful thing I've ever seen. Seriously, love it.

Re: That's As Many As Four Tens. [1/1]

This is... amazing. It's beyond amazing. 'Cause he stole (made) forty cakes. 'Cause that's like, four tens. This has got to be one of the best fills I've ever read.

I love how the others get it almost instantly, and decide to help him out despite there being, you know, forty cakes.

Re: That's As Many As Four Tens. [1/1]

D'awwww. That is so cute. I love how the other all just silently agree to play along. Also, major bonus points for the Cameron mention.

I also love the Cameron mention. This is just nostalgia and crack at its best author/ess. :)

I esp. love the part where he didn't even really steal the cakes. lol.

Re: That's As Many As Four Tens. [1/1]

I did kinda a late laugh. I finished reading without so much as a chuckle, sat silently for a moment, then proceeded to roll over and DIE.



Cause that was just fucking hilarious and adorable.

Re: That's As Many As Four Tens. [1/1]

Lj!fail. That comment was totally not meant to go here. Well, it went to the fill, not to this comment. Facepalm.

That was amazing, even if I had to google the title to remember where I'd heard it before and what you were referencing, but when I did remember, I DIED. DIED OF LOL.

I GET IT NOW!

I read this months ago, and I could not figure out what the heck was going on and just completely did not understand it.

And then I was on TV Tropes and I happened to visit the page And That's Terrible.

And that was when I had to google this, because I GET IT NOW!
And now it's funny.
