Okay first, this line
/Wally just let out an intoxicated giggle, not even recognizing the boy when he spoke. "Yeah well, you isn't you!" As if it were the funniest comeback in the world, his uncontrollable laughter erupted and he stumbled away from the outreached hand that tried desperately to stop him./
THAT was creepy. I literally felt a shiver down my spine reading that. The whole first part was actually a bit creepy, though I couldn't completely understand what was going on (though I'm guessing he was taking drugs?).
And the second and third part both heartbreaking. The third part especially. Just the idea of Wally being unable to run is...god. And the last line was probably the perfect way to end the story.
Brilliant story. Awesome job! :)

My only problem with it is that more chapters would be awesome XD

OMG "You could've done better than this." Those are the last words anyone wants to hear from a mentor/role model/parent.
I love the way you started with the hazy, nondescript murk in the beginning to highlight his problem and transitioned sharply into sobriety with specific details. The way you left the ending open was great too. You can't tell if he's ruined for life or if its just that no one wants to trust him any more after being so bent on self destruction.
The way you get your message across with so few words is a gift. Not many people can pull it off so fluidly.

Oh, jeez. This was intense. O_O
And, like all of your stories, very well written.

Alcohol can be such a destructive substance. I think Wally has definitely learned his lesson; a lesson that he will always have to live with. I think the reactions of his teammates were spot on. I think Barry's response to the situation at the end really sealed the deal: KF will never touch a drop of alcohol again. Salvaging the friendships of his old live will be difficult, but I think he could. After awhile.

OMG. I actually CRIED. I'm so down that I won't even use exclamation points. Still this story was good.

GREAT YOU MADE ME ALL SAD NOW! I LOVE/HATE YOU FOR THIS BEAUTIFULY TRAGIC STORY! WHICH IS MY WAY OF SAYING I LOVED IT.
| Charisma B 1/30/11 . chapter 1
:( Very sad! The last line broke me into tears... Good job!
| livlife 1/30/11 . chapter 1
Oh GOD. That is the absolute worst thing that can happen to a runner. What the hell were you trying to forget Wally?
Besides the fact that i'm now crying... uhm, yeah. It's good just depressing.
Wally, you ass. You deserved a punch in the face.

Mmm-mmm dat angst. Yes, Wally. Just yes.
I won't say he's the most likely to get into a screwed up situation out of the group but I will say that I like the idea of it being him. Well, him or Kaldur, cause Kaldur seems like he'd do that martyr type stuff and get himself mashed to paste trying to defend something.
Back on topic, nnng, yes Wally. So I assume they shot him in the spine? I'm not gonna lie, I like the outcome but damn you woman for teasing me, I thought he was gonna go flying over hood of someone's car. Minivan brakes don't work that well, cause I say so. :V
Dat punch. Mmmm, I could picture it in my head. You don't even get what i'm saying here. I saw the knuckles slamming into Wally's jaw and the resulting ripple effect as skin and muscle gave way and the delicate flesh of his inner cheek split on his teeth. In slow-mo. Do you understand? Do you understand what I am saying? Fffffffffffff- imma spazzin so hard you don't even.
Ugh, i'm such a sucker for drama and character injury type shit. It always gets me interested. I guess it's cause it brings certain people down off their high horses and teaches others not to try to sacrifice themselves for every person on the goddamn planet.
AH-HA, WALLY, YOU CAN'T RUN NO MO SUCKA. CONSEQUENCES AND REPERCUSSIONS. So glad that challenge popped into my head now, this is so satisfying. c:
| Grim Lullaby 1/30/11 . chapter 1
First off, I'm sooo glad that you're getting interested in the DC universe and I hope that this is the first of many oneshots(because the only way a chapter fic can be done is if we all do one or some shit) from you. You already know I adore your writing, if I didn't I probably would hate you. ;) And to think you did this all without a beta reader.
"Yeah well, you isn't you!"
Anyways, the first couple of lines had me giggling. A drunk Wally is a naturally funny Wally and I'd honestly like to see him fall over into Dick's lap... Mouth wide open. *shifty eyes* I kid... OR DO I!
And what the lump man. These descriptions. I'm about to jizz over here. Your elaborate use of metaphors leaves me in awe once again, I've got to step my game up. And the fact that you set aside your hate for M'gann and wrote her into this made me happy. I hate when people bash, even when I'm not a fan of the character in particular. It's really fucking annoying and unprofessional.
IS THAT A HINT OF WALLY/DICK I SPIED? Oh Gawd, I hope so. Dick don't be such a woman, man up and kiss him! KISS HIM! Ahem. Anyways, that's so fucking terribly sad. Maybe if he learns to walk on his hands he can still be Kid Flash? YES PLEASE? T'would be awesome.
And fuck I envy you. I never know how to end fics but you ended on such a perfect note. It left me wanting more but at the same time I'd hate if you wrote a sequel. It's perfect as is.
"Everything was just happening too fast, for once."
My favorite line right there. Almost gave me chills wimminz. Criticism. Uh... A bit of background detail as to how Wally came to drinking? It was a bit confusing at first but after I caught on to what was happening I really enjoyed it. Thumbs up babe. And when you get the chance go write some KF/Rob. I DEMAND it. And Speedy/Rob. I demand that more than anything. 8D.
Thanks for participating in the challenge btw!
