Prompt Post -Part One! [CLOSED TO NEW PROMPTS]
yj_anon wrote in yj_anon_meme

Welcome to the Young Justice: Animated anonymous fic meme!

How does it work? Basically, you leave prompts, and people fill them with glorious fic. Pretty simple. Anonymity is allowed for those that feel nervous or awkward requesting or filling, but it isn't actually obligatory. Unlike a lot of memes (like kink memes) this doesn't have a particular focus beyond the fandom. Het, gen, slash, femslash, anything else you can think up? Welcome! Crack, drama, angst? Go nuts!

However, we do have some...

Rules and guidelines.

• Animated canon only, please. Crossovers are fine, so is integrating comics/etc. stuff into animated canon, but no outright Young Justice comic stuff, please.
• Be reasonable. Polite. Etc. You may be anonymous, but that is no excuse for being ridiculous.
• Likewise, be considerate in your prompting. Trigger warnings are appreciated (for content that may seriously upset people with past experience, such as rape/non-con, self harm, suicide, etc.- at the absolute least, please make it clear what the fic contains about before someone stumbles across it halfway through!), and please be careful with your wording. Memes like this often touch on some sensitive material. If you feel somebody has posted an actively offensive prompt, please either PM me or use the mod post here to bring it to my attention.
• One prompt per post, please!
• Repeat after me: Your Kink Is Not My Kink. Don't attack people's prompts because they aren't your cup of tea!
• Look, just don't wank up a storm in general. I'm sure we can all manage, right? :)
ETA: Please do not reprompt things until we reach a second part. In addition, I encourage anyone looking for things to fill to go back through previous pages. A lot of people have old prompts tracked, so your fills will still be seen!

This is the 'flat' view of the page; it shows comments in the order they're posted, rather than as threads. Makes it easier to see new fills on previous pages.

I'll look at getting a Delicious or Diigo or something-or-other archive up for filled prompts if it gets to the point we feel it'd be useful. In the meantime, have fun!

ETA: We now have a discussion post if you need one!

ETA: I need help with archiving! Also, we set up a fill post.

Can you please leave links to any fic you write there. See the post for more details. Thanks!

ETA: GUYS. I am officially making the 'PM me about offensive prompts' thing obligatory. Please, I have difficulty keeping up without your wonderful help!

Incidentally, being polite includes not telling people they're being 'too sensitive' for being bothered by things. Just sayin'. This place is a safe space, in so much as I can make it one, and I don't really like the rhetoric of 'oh, if you're offended you're oversensitive' that I'm seeing in a couple places? Remember: people may have had different experiences than you that influence their view. Don't assume. :)

New Eyes 3/3

“So, what brought you to Metropolis today?” Jimmy asked. “We haven’t seen you since the bridge incident where you helped Superman.”

“Screwed up and got in the way,” Superboy muttered. He shifted and glanced away. “Batman’s gonna lecture, said I shouldn’t try to force things, just make a bigger mess. But...” he rubbed at one ear and grimaced again. “They don’t understand. Everything’s too loud. The noise hurt worse than the bullets this time.”

The comment drew both Clark and Jimmy’s eyes back to the bullet riddled tee-shirt. Jimmy was the one who found his voice first. “You’re bruising,” he said, his voice thick with disbelief.

Superboy shrugged. It wasn’t news to him.

Clark couldn’t stop staring. He couldn’t remember the last time he’d felt something as minor as a bullet. It took a force of nature or a veritable demi-god to mark him. But through the tattered tee-shirt he could see vivid bruises blooming from dozens of welts left on the boy’s chest. A quick check with X-Ray vision showed cracked ribs beneath the bruises and older fractures in various states of healing.

Six months and he was well on his way to having X-rays like Bruce’s. Clark bit his lip and looked away. ‘Little experience. Couldn’t fly, in fact all the boy had was a fraction of his strength. A fraction of his *invulnerability*. But he was trying. Trying so hard to be a hero, even when it hurt.


Thirty minutes later Superman caught up with his clone as the boy was leaving Metropolis.

“You were looking for me?” Superman asked.

The boy nodded warily. “Sorry. I thought, maybe... Canary and Batman tried but...”

“Your hearing is starting to mature,” Superman broke into the rambling. “I could help you figure out how to control it.”

“I just... It’s making me crazy,” Superboy stopped. He stared at Superman. “Really? You will?”

“Yes, really,” Superman promised. “Why don’t we start by going somewhere quieter. When my hearing first started kicking it, it was easier if I could focus in on just one sound. Even now a city can be a little overwhelming at times.”

“You don’t have to go do something else?”

Clark tapped his JLA communicator. “Don’t call me for less than a class-8 emergency for the next three hours,” he said, meeting Superboy’s eyes directly for the first time.

Re: New Eyes 3/3

Aww, this was sweet.
I love how you characterized Superboy and how Clark came around. The commentary going on in Clark's head was good as well and how he got all worried when he realised Superboy wasn't as sturdy as he is.
Loved it.

Re: New Eyes 3/3

This is lovely! I especially love your Jimmy, and Clark's thoughts, and how he ends up connecting with Superboy after all. Seriously lovely!

Re: New Eyes 3/3

I went from "hee, Superboy got his S-shield torn off again" to "oh no, he's injured!" Glad Clark got insight and wised up.

Re: New Eyes 3/3

Dear writer-anon,

I love this fic so much that I have not been able to bring myself to delete it from my comment-notifications even though I originally read it about five seconds after it was posted, and have read it at least three times since. The sole flaw is that it ended.

Much love, reader-anon (who is still not deleting hir notifications just yet >_>)

SUPEY, NO D: Poor sweet hardworking boy.

Re: New Eyes 3/3

So adorable! Yay! for Clark getting his act together!
