Even Royals Need Friends (Kingdom AU: Timothy and Artemis)

Artemis tsked at him, shaking her head with a small grin, “You could have said please, maybe a thank you,” she teased, watching as the servant went of to get him another bow. At his challenge, she eyed the target again. She’d done it before, but very rarely - especially on her second shot of the day. “I could try,” she mused, picking up another arrow and testing its point with her finger.

Rubbing her fingertips together, she created a small spark to warm the arrow’s tip. She was already trying to ruin one arrow, she could at least try to not brutally destroy a second. Picking her bow up again, she took a beat longer than normal to take aim and shoot. She missed the very end of the target’s arrow, but started a split halfway down it. “How’s that?”

Tim’s eyes widened and his jaw hit the dirt. He had never seen anything like that before. Artemis truly was the best archer around. At least to him she was. As the servant returned with a larger bow he nodded his head and whispered an honest, “thank you.” 

He took aim once again and fired. It was better this time. Still right in the center but just a bit off. “So what brings you here so early? You’re usually not here until the sun has almost set.”

Cassie’s eyes were the size of saucers as she stared at her best friend. Oh she heard alright, about the shower. “……How did you….” Her mouth opened and closed as she tried to piece together that he knew. "…ohh no you didn’t…"

Tim took a small sip of his cocoa and stared flatly at Cassie. 

"I did," he answered. "Shower, you’ve left uh… things in plain sight, and you’re not quite as quiet as you think.” It was the morning after, and he wasn’t going to censor himself. 

"Oh Hera help me" Cassie mumbled into her drink, taking a good, long sip of it. This was all supposed to be poking fun at Tim not the other way around. "Okay well that was all her idea and um, you shouldn’t be waking up that early anyway. What with your late nights and all"

"Bats don’t sleep," Tim returned quickly. He liked this. This was nice. Cassie always teased him so now it was time to return the favor. "At least we stay clear of places other people are. And don’t leave items in plain sight.” He makes Conner take them with him or Cassie will find them and he’ll never live it down.

"Oh I’m only teasing…I think it’s great that you two are so…actively loving" As long as they didn’t put a crack in her wall she supposed that it would be okay. Though a little warning would’ve been nice. Like. Hey Cassie, gonna get all up against your wall. "Tim, that’s sweet but I’m not going to need  the hot chocolate…you barely look like you’ll be able to walk”

"At least Conner and I don’t do it in the shower," Tim muttered into his cup. He knows about that time. But Cassie doesn’t know he knows. All he wanted was to take his morning shower but… it was occupied. By two. “Just drink your cocoa you’re embarrassing me.”

If Cassie wanted to play this game he would play it.

Cassie tried her best not to sputter in her drink, that was a failure, which was unfortunate because it was hot. She supposed she deserved that. “Tim we share a wall. I was trying to watch a movie….Kara had to leave the room” Which she was so not thrilled about that, “Superhearing her cousin doing it so not on the list of fun things to do” Though she had to pause, to laugh, “I’m surprised you still have your voice right now actually”

Shut up,” Tim repeated. He covered his face with his hands as his embarrassment was at a level beyond words. His face turned scarlet when he realized that they had been against the wall a couple of times. Taking another large swig of hot cocoa he spoke again, “you’re enjoying this, aren’t you?” Of course she was. She loved torturing him. “One day soon you’re going to need the hot chocolate.”

"Both," Artemis was quick to grin at him again. In all honesty he had improved. "Well what practice you have has helped. You’re aim is getting closer, your shot more confident," She noted, stepping up and grabbing a second bow off of the wall. Picking up one of his arrows she notched it and took her aim, quickly firing the arrow into the center circle. "As for what you’re missing? More practice for one. For another, that bow seems to be getting a little too small for you, perhaps look for a slightly longer one."

Tim looked down at his bow and realized… it was a little larger child-sized. Maybe it was time for an upgrade. 

"Fetch me a larger bow," Tim told the servant standing by. He quickly ran off to do just that. Turning back to the targets his jaw dropped when he saw where the arrow hit. "Can you hit that spot again and split it?" 

He had heard stories of people do that. And he genuinely wondered if Artemis was expert enough to do it herself.

"No, I’m not," Conner answered. He tipped his head a little, curious. "I was just looking around. I don’t really have anywhere I’m trying to get to." On an impulse, he shifted a little bit closer. This guy was cute. Really cute. He seemed like he’d be interesting to talk to, too. "My name’s Conner," he introduced himself lightly.

Tim took a step back out of habit. He was so attracted to this ma—… Conner,that he almost forgot to be cautious. Not that he felt threatened at all. But better safe than sorry. It was being too trusting that he suspects got Jason killed. 

"I’m Ager," Tim answered. His favorite go-to alias. Maybe later he’d reveal his name was really Timothy. "The city is that way." Tim pointed to his left to where his boulder was.

Hot Chocolate? You Look Like You Could Use It (Robin, Season 3)

silverstarsandlassos:

Life at the secret hideout was much different then living out in Boise. In Boise Cassie had a life as Brittany McFields…it was something to keep her busy as time went by. But now that she had joined forces and helped Kara escape the pressures of working under Lex, everything had changed. It was nice though. She imagined this is how life would be if they all lived in the same apartment or dorm floor in college…just…more important. 

It was an early morning and Cassie decided to be a good friend, seeing poor Tim at the dining room table she wanted to help him out. So she made two cups of hot chocolate and slid into the seat in front of him. “You look like you could use this” She set down the mug of hot chocolatey goodness. “I heard that Conner came to visit last night” Wonder Girl brought her mug to her lips to prevent herself from laughing at her own cleverness.

Tim was exhausted. Well, exhausted was an understatement. But it wasn’t the fact that he was tired, because that’s happened before, but it was the reason behind the exhaustion. Conner had spent the night last night. And they were up very late doing… activities together. Tim was sore in several places he’d rather not mention. 

At first when Cassie brought him hot chocolate he was eternally grateful for her friendship. It wasn’t until she actually started talking that he realized why she was doing it. 

"Shut up," he grumbled as he snatched the mug and took a big gulp. It was scalding but he didn’t care. "It’s not funny!" That would probably just make her laugh. "Were we really that loud?” 

Or was it just me…

An Unfamiliar Face | Kingdom AU | Conner

the-brooding-superboy:

Conner, oblivious to the shadow skulking behind him. It was not in his primary nature to be cautious. He tended to go blundering blindly into whatever was ahead of him and had to hope he would come out for the better. It helped that he had fairly good luck. 

Striding along down the street, it wasn’t until he turned a corner that he realized there was someone following him. He caught the movement out of the corner of his eye and turned around, startled, to face his pursuer. 

"Hello?" he asked with a light sort of bemused half smile. "Can I… help you?"

"You seem a little lost," Timothy answered with his own smile. When the boy turned around he lost his thoughts for a moment. The boy was… stunning. He swore this was like one of moments he used to read about in books. Now he knew the boy wasn’t from Gotham. He would have remembered a face like that. ”You’re not from here… are you?” 

Cautiously he took a step closer. If he was staring, he didn’t notice. Those blue eyes… this stranger took Tim’s breath away.
