Author's Note: Just drabbles. I may write more later. We'll see. These are mainly just from random thoughts I have while watching the series. Some of the drabbles take place during the same time frame.
"Okay, that was a good one," Wally said appreciatively as the guys of the Young Justice team left the theater.
"I agree," Kaldur nodded his approval. "It was a very enjoyable movie."
Conner neither voiced his approval or disapproval. He was still a little miffed that the theater had refused to allow Wolf entrance. He whistled and the white wolf joined them from its place in the alley. "Sorry, boy," he said as he scratched his pet behind the ear. "Maybe next time."
"Well?" Wally elbowed Robin in the ribs. "Tell me that was awesome. I mean, that twist! Wow! I did not see that coming!"
"That's because you weren't paying attention," Robin snorted. "About two minutes into the movie, you could clearly see the killer's shadow in the flashback scene. It showed that the killer was left handed and had long hair. The long hair was meant to make you think it was a woman, but there wasn't a single woman in that movie tall enough to be the killer – the shadow cast was from someone at least six feet tall. Plus it's not that hard to realize that sometimes guys wear their hair long as well and that the killer was capable of getting a haircut in the two years that passed between the murder and the time the core of the film takes place in."
Wally groaned and smacked himself upside the head. "You spend too much time around Batman, Rob."
"Are you sure you guys don't want to try a regular sleep over activity? Like…painting nails?" M'gann suggested hopefully.
"Why? In our line of work it's just going to chip," Artemis pointed out. "If the guys get to have fun, then we should, too."
"We can always paint our nails after," Zatanna suggested.
The girls were onboard the bioship, looking for any criminal activity they could thwart. "Seeing anything?" Artemis asked hopefully.
"Nope," M'gann shook her head. "All quiet for once."
They spent another hour searching for any suspicious situations, but to no avail. Artemis sighed and put her head down on the panel. "All right, M'gann, you win. We'll go back and have a 'normal' sleepover. But if anyone hits me with a pillow, they're dead."
The Sleep Over – Boy's Side
"What do you think they're doing in there?" Wally asked, leaning back against the table.
"Probably not what you're thinking," Robin said. Wally couldn't be sure, but he thought the Boy Wonder was rolling his eyes behind his sun glasses.
"C'mon…Zatanna's in there. Doesn't that make you the teensiest bit curious?"
"Artemis is there, too. Which means I doubt they're prancing around like in those movies you keep hidden under your bed."
"Stay out of my room, Rob. Hey, Conner! Whaddya think they're doing?"
"I don't know. Girl stuff?" Superboy suggested.
"Brilliant, Supes. I never would have even thought to consider that," Wally's voice dripped with sarcasm as he grabbed an apple of the table. He polished it on his shirt before taking a judicious bite. "You've got x-ray vision, why don't you check?"
"Probably because I don't care," Conner shrugged. "I'm gonna take Wolf out for a walk."
"Maybe since he's only a few weeks old, he hasn't hit puberty yet…" Wally speculated.
"You've walked in on him and Miss Martian making out," Robin pointed out, "He clearly has."
"I wonder if I can concentrate really hard and –"
"No. You are not going to try to vibrate through the walls just to spy on their slumber party. You'll either fail and get a nose bleed and a headache or you'll succeed and the girls will kill you."
"What if I went in there with an offer of pizza? Just randomly stumbled in. Do you think they're wearing pajamas?"
Robin merely shook his head. There was no way he was going to get Wally's mind on something else. It was just easier to let him bounce insane idea after insane idea around and wait for Kid Flash to realize that none of them would work.
The Sleep Over – the Girl's side
"I know I was the one that kept shooting the idea down because we technically always have sleep overs when we spend the night here, but this is really kind of...fun," Artemis said as she grabbed a handful of popcorn.
M'gann giggled. "Glad you're enjoying, but maybe we should tell Wally that you placed a bug on him?"
Zatanna shook her head. "And miss out on this? Tropelet!" The popcorn bowl landed in her lap as a result of her spell.
"I'm just saying, they could be doing some really interesting things in there," Wally's voice came over the bug, "Like truth or dare? Or-"
"They're not practicing kissing. Don't even suggest it."
"Oh, man, Rob, I hadn't even thought of that! What if that's what we're missing? You're okay with that?
"Yes, because I've paid enough attention to know that those girls aren't like that. Where have you been for the past four months?"
"All right, that's enough listening to Wally make a fool of himself for one day," Artemis switched the radio off. "I'll remove the bug from him tomorrow."
"Who wants to watch a romantic comedy?" M'gann suggested.
"You do know we don't have to do any stereotyped girly things tonight, right, Megan?" Zatanna asked, putting a hand on the Martian girl's shoulder.
"I know. I just really want to watch it, and Conner won't watch it with me. Artemis? Are you up for it?"
Artemis rested her chin in her hand and groaned. "So help me, I actually am up for it. Pop the DVD in."
The morning after:
"I found this on me last night," Wally dropped the bug in front of Artemis before taking the seat beside her. "How much did you hear?"
"Why, Wally! What makes you think I would place a bug on you?" Artemis feigned looking hurt.
"C'mon. We both know this is yours. It's green, and that's part of your color scheme. Plus you and Robin are the only ones I know to carry them."
"Maybe Robin placed it on you," she took a sip of her coffee and leaned back in her chair. "What does it matter anyway?"
"Look, I…I've been told I objectify women. If Black Canary is to be believed, anyway, and I tend to take notice when a woman that hot tells me something."
"Gee, ya think she might be right?"
"Sarcasm wasn't needed. Look, I'm sorry. You girls weren't meant to hear that."
"And?" the archer probed.
"And even if you weren't meant to hear it, it doesn't really make it all right. I'm a teenage guy, okay? My hormones get the best of me when I think about three really cute girls in a room together."
"Heh. Uh. Yeah. Well, you're cute, in that Amazonian, rough and tough chick kind of way. Not that there's anything wrong with that," the speedster held his hands up in surrender. "All I'm trying to say is that it was wrong of me to say those kinds of things and objectify you girls, regardless of if you could hear me. Also, you still shouldn't have placed the transmitter on me. So can we just agree we were both in the wrong?"
"Sounds fair," Artemis agreed, extending her hand. They shook hands, but Wally quickly examined his hand afterward. "Oh for goodness sakes! I did not place another bug on you!"
"Well, you do have a proven history of it-"
"You are a jerk and you have a history of being a sexist pig, but I didn't start accusing your eyes of wandering somewhere other than my eyes! Maybe I should go find those tapes under your bed, see what the others think of them!"
"Hey, everyone needs to stay out of my room! And there aren't any tapes in there under the bed in the corner beside where I keep my emergency stash of twinkies!"
The speedster and archer continued to argue as they left the room. "Now can I turn the tv back up?" Conner complained before putting an arm around M'gann.
"Do they not realize they like each other?" Zatanna asked. Kaldur shook his head.
"They know. They just want to fight it."
"I'm with Conner on this one," Robin threw his two cents in, "Let's get back to watching tv. I'm bored of today's episode of Unresolved Sexual Tension. Besides, we all know it'll re-run at the same time tomorrow."
