Pairings: Robin/Superboy and Bruce Wayne/Clark Kent
Verse: Young Justice (show)
Rating: R (Sexuality, maybe language)
Summary: It was in his genes to catch people when they fell, a predisposition if you will. But Superboy found himself in the unfamiliar territory of falling. And who is supposed to catch a hero when he falls?
Personal Commentary: I’m not fond any pairings in Young Justice,but I found this to be an entertaining read. However, I do dislike how Miss. Martian is characterized and used in the story. That is the only element that really spoiled everything for me. But, if it is not a big issue to you, go for it!
Superboy knelt on the ground, his breath coming out in harsh pants. He cradled a body in his arms, the figure quiet and motionless. His arms were shaking but not from the weight of the body, but from his fear. It overwhelmed him, so much so he couldn’t respond to the voice shouting in his ear com, asking if they were okay. All he could do was stare down at the body in his arms, trembling from emotions he hadn’t yet felt in his brief existence.
The team was on a mission, doing reconnaissance on a business company Batman suspected was double dealing to the Cult of the Kobra. So they saddled up and came to the main building of this company, which might be working for Kobra, searching for clues that may help them win this undefined fight. Or at least understand where they stood. They snuck in just after midnight, splitting into teams to search the building. Superboy had been teamed with Robin, so he could protect their team’s greatest weapon against the complexity of cyberspace.
Robin had been hacking the mainframe when someone had found them, and that someone had a Kobra Venom junkie with him. Robin immediately disappeared like a wraith, going after the man that had found them. Superboy was left to fight the juiced up monster, following after his partner after he sent the beast through a window ten stories up. He had followed the sound of Robin’s banter with their foe, making his way to the roof of the skyscraper.
Superboy arrived on the rooftop just in time to watch Robin be violently knocked out by his opponent. The man looked at Superboy, a smirk distorting his pale face as he grabbed a hold of one of Robin’s ankles. Superboy realized what was about to happen a moment too late as the man swung Robin’s limp body into the air and over the ledge.
