LOSH: Unexpected Changes Chp16Chapter 16
Superman punched through the floor when Drax disappeared in a green flash. He looked around desperately, hoping the flash had been his imagination and Drax had just sped out of the way, but he wasn't so lucky.
"Computo! Where's Brainy?"
Static was all he got for a reply and he started desperately to scan the building with his x-ray vision.
His heart was pounding.
Phantom Girl phased through the final wall to find Timber Wolf alone, unconscious and unmoving.
Flying over, she rolled him onto his back and placed her ear close to his mouth to listen and feel for breath as her fingers went to his neck to check for a pulse.
She stopped when she heard a sniff.
"You smell good," came a groggy voice.
Phantom Girl nearly forgot to keep breathing when she looked up and saw Timber Wolf returning her gaze. Her eyes watered as she threw her arms around him.
"You're okay!" She sat up and smacked his shoulder. "Don't scare me like that."
Chuckling, Timber Wolf slowly pushed h
LOSH: Unexpected Changes Chp15Chapter 15
Almost as if forgetting he could fly, Bouncing Boy bounced up, unhooked formerly White Triplicate Girl from the chains and brought her back to the others with him, laying her gently on the ground. He pressed a couple of fingers against her neck.
"B-Bouncy, is she-" began Purple Triplicate Girl, holding onto her Orange counterpart's hands for support.
Bouncing Boy nodded and then shook his head, turning to the others with a determined look in his eye.
"Lightning Lad, you're the fastest one here – get her to the medical bay and start treating her right away. I'm not sure how much blood she's lost and her heartbeat is slowing down. Timber Wolf, find Brainy and get him somewhere safe; communication is down so we won't know if you run into whoever's here so be careful. Trips and I will try to get an alternate route of communication back to the rings to call backup. Everyone got the plan?"
The others nodded solemnly.
Wordlessly, Timber Wolf ran further into headquarters snif
LOSH: Unexpected Changes Chp14Chapter 14
No matter what White Triplicate Girl did, she couldn't get Brainy to stop crying or to even speak to her. He didn't even seem to acknowledge the fact that she was there at all as she sat holding him, rocking him back and forth, stroking his hair and back and softly speaking reassuring words to him.
Hiccups joined the sobs as Brainy struggled to breathe in his self-induced panic. His logical side – which sounded a lot like his caretakers' voices – told him he would accomplish nothing by getting so upset, but he couldn't help it.
He pushed his affection for Saturn Girl too far, even calling her 'mommy' again after he promised himself he wouldn't force the role on her.
Now she hated him.
But since Brainy spoken none of these thoughts out loud, White Triplicate Girl had no way of knowing to tell him that it wasn't true. And even if he had, he wasn't listening to her anyway.
Soon enough Brainy's sobs reduced themselves to exhausted sniffles and soft hiccups, his eyes
LOSH: Unexpected Changes Chp13Chapter 13
Clark woke up in the middle of the night feeling really thirsty. Not bothering to put on his glasses, he rolled out of the bed, floated to his feet and headed towards the kitchen for something to drink. Having to walk through the lounge to get to the kitchen, he was surprised to see a light coming from it.
Sitting in his floating chair was Brainy, facing Computo's mainframe typing away at the computer.
It was definitely a moment for déjà vu for Clark. There had been numerous occasions, since he come to the 31st century, that he had woken up in the middle of the night needing a drink only to find Brainy working on something at Computo's mainframe. He would go, get his drink and then sit beside Brainy, often talking for hours as Brainy worked and they both went to bed only an hour or two before breakfast.
But this wasn't a normal circumstance. Brainy couldn't be working on anything… and he was only three years old. He needed his sleep.
Determined to put th

After lunch they continued on their way to the animals from different planets enclosures, but none of the fascinated Brainy more then Comet and Cupid.
"What are they?" asked Brainy, trying to peer down into the dome at the strange reptile like creatures.
"No one really knows," began Imra.
"They're the ones from another plain of existence I told you about," said Garth.
"So no one knows anything about them?" Brainy's eyes were wide, but not in fear; in astonishment.
"Well, no one we can talk to anyway," Luornu commented, looking relieved.
Staring into the dome for a moment in silence, Brainy gazed up at Imra, blinking slowly and shuffling his feet before asking, "Can I study them?"
The faces of the older legionnaires went pale, except Timber Wolf's whose ears went back as he narrowed his eyes at the creatures in the dome, almost growling.
Imra knelt down to Brainy's level.
"Brainy, even if you were all grown up I wouldn't want you near those things. They're very naughty and li

A Failure to Understand
It was between sobs and sharp breaths that Querl explained what had happened. How the little door had been sealed during the day but at night lead to another world with an Other Mother and the duplicates of everyone he's met here. How the door was revealed to be real this afternoon when he had went to lock it but the world had turned dark, the Other Mother capturing the souls of children and holding them there and how the Other Mother had used the doll to spy on him to try to lure him into staying.
The effort it took to tell Clark how Querl had abandoned the ghost children and the Other Clark and Other Lyle almost made Querl's sobbing return to its starting point but Clark's hand gently rubbing over his back kept Querl secure enough to calm into sniffles. As his mind returned to proper working order he remembered Clark's powers and wondered if he could help in the rescue mission.
"Wow," Clark said after a bit, still stroking over Querl's back. "That s
TnB: Bunny of the Sea 18Chapter 18
When Kotetsu decided to teach Bunny how to speak he thought it would take a really long time, like weeks to months, but Bunny absorbed information like a sponge. Sadly the information Bunny wanted was letters and the written word, only attempting making sounds when bribed with oatmeal or Kotetsu kisses.
By the time Kotetsu ran out of oatmeal Bunny had the sounds of letters down and could recite the alphabet but lost interest in trying to speak. Instead he concentrated on trying to hold a pencil, holding it much like a child would when they first learned how to write, and copying the letters Kotetsy had written on flashcards onto a bigger piece of paper.
Figuring it didn't hurt to have Bunny learn to write, in case he was asked to sign his name, which they would figure a name out later, Kotetsu didn't push to continue the speaking lesson. Instead he watched Bunny write, correcting Bunny's hold on the pencil when need be, and wishing he had crayons since those seemed easier to

As soon as he was set on the ground, Querl struggled. He tried to slam the person holding into the wall, surprised when he could do so, so easily. Still he grabbed onto the other person and swung them around to the other wall so he could see them.
The moment he was in Querl's line of vision, the Other Lyle shielded his face.
"Lyle, I'm sorry, I didn't realize it was you," Querl reached for him, jumping when a hand landed on his shoulder.
This time the Other Clark was behind him, blocking his face with his free arm. He said something but it was muddled.
Frowning, Querl pulled on the Other Clark's arm until he lowered it, gasping when he saw the Other Clark's face. There were stitches in his face, on his cheeks, forcing him to smile. Querl turned and saw Other Lyle had lowered his hands as well and had identical stitches.
"Did she do this to you?" Querl asked but neither answered. It had been a stupid question anyway. He was able to untie the stitches and pull t
TnB: Bunny of the Sea 17Chapter 17
After some digging around the little apartment, Kotetsu found some paper and made a makeshift "Quarantine" sign with "leave fish for Bunny by door" scribbled underneath and stuck it on the outside of his door so hopefully no one would disturb them. He also locked the door to keep people from barging in and seeing Bunny in his humanized state.
It took some convincing but Kotetsu managed to get Bunny to wear one of his shirts. The shirt was just long enough to cover his front but Kotetsu still felt a little strange about Bunny walking around the apartment with his bottom half exposed. Honestly it amazed Kotetsu that Bunny could walk at all but he was having a problem with not staring. Still he could sort of understand Bunny's reluctance to put on underwear.
There weren't many books in Kotetsu's apartment but he had a dictionary, lots of paper, pencils and a clip board. He had just finished piling them on the bed by Bunny when the door knocked. Luckily his nose was still a bit
