Author’s Notes:My beta, Lara, has been utterly indispensable, not only with her fantastic talent for giving me AU ideas that explode into ~60k fics, but also with her eagle eye and her precious words of support and enthusiasm. My followers and friends on Tumblr have also gotten me through this in every sense, providing constant help and encouragement every time I was ready to just give up and cry and gorge myself on chocolate.
Ke$ha was instrumental in giving me catchy enough music to keep myself motivated and awake at three in the morning. So thank you, Ke$ha.
And finally, my artist, jesterlady, is a total doll, and her art for this piece is absolutely precious; I ADORE IT, and so should you! EVERYONE INVOLVED IN THIS HAS BEEN AMAZING, BASICALLY? So thank you. Thank you for being patient, supportive, encouraging, constructive, enthusiastic, interested, everything. Thank you for letting me and helping me be a part of this.
I’m like so over this fic that I go cross-eyed if I look at it for too long; I can’t even tell if it’s good or bad anymore, so I’m super sorry if it’s awful, but we all have our bombs, I guess. Still, though, this was a nice experience – such the antithesis of the emotionally soul-crushing rollercoaster of an endeavor that was TNGA. Enjoy!
Read it on AO3, FFNet, or here on Tumblr.
Because if we get a season 3 and Wally comes back, I sortofkindofmaybe want a sobbing emotional Dick Grayson
(Does it make more sense if I have the other one up there?)
Things to remember in s2.
GUYS, THEY WITHSTOOD THE TRIALS. NOW IT COMES TIME FOR THE SEXING.
Wait. Spoke too soon.
Here you go! Man, clearly I was right about people needing fix it fic! ;)
Newton’s Third Law of Motion (2702 words) by Irony_Rocks
Fandom: Young Justice (Cartoon), DCU Animated, DCU
Rating: Mature, for sex.
Relationships: Artemis Crock/Wally West (others may be added as I go along)
Characters: Wally West, Artemis Crock, Dick Grayson, Bart Allen, Barbara Gordon, Jaime Reyes, Barry Allen, Aqualad, Conner Kent, M’gann M’orzz
Author’s Note: Spoilers for all of Young Justice, including the series finale, 2.20 “Endgame.” Don’t worry, it’s fix-it fic. And I know I said in my last Grayson’s Thirteen author’s note that I was going on hiatus, but then I saw the series finale today and had the overwhelming urge to start up a new fic. *HEADDESK*
Summary: Long story short: Wally’s trapped on another plane of existence. And man, he’s bored.
Is Wally and Artemis’ dog ever given a canon name? Or do you guys have suggestions if not?
The thing of it is, massive amounts of kinetic energy discharged by an alien tech meant to destroy the Earth? It’s a pretty hardcore equation full of a lot of thermo-magnetic variables and scientific unknowns. Add to it an industrious application of Newton’s third law of motion with a trio of blood-related speedsters, and Beetle-tech drones and MFDs and Luthor’s anti-reach virus software, if anyone claimed to be able to predict the theoretical applications of the events, much less the actual consequences, Wally West would have called them a big, stinking liar. He’s a smart dude, not quite the level of his uncle, but no slouch when it comes to physics and advanced mathematics, but… weeeeeelll, Wally has always known that things very rarely go as planned. Even when they do know what to expect – which, in this case, to belabor his point, no one could.
Long story short: he’s trapped on another plane of existence.
And man, he’s bored.
Yeah, so… that series finale.
I know I said I was on hiatus from tumblr and writing fic, BUT HOLY FUDGICALS, BATMAN. Fix it fic needs to be written. I just don’t want it to be uber long, but my problem with YJ fic I’ve written (Grayson’s Thirteen, Queen of Hearts, and The One Universal Constant) is that they’re all very, very long. (40K-60K) But how do I fix-it in a one-shot? The plot necessary will require time-traveling, I suspect. And exploration of Artemis, Bart, Dick, Aqualad, Barbara, Tim, Cassie and more.
OMG, THIS EPISODE KILLED ME. I NEED TO AT LEAST READ FIX IT FIC. ANYONE ELSE STARTING?

Ocean’s Eleven AU: After being released from prison, Dick Grayson meets up with his former partner in crime and close friend Wally West to propose a take down of some of the most notorious, corrupt individuals in the country. But to do what they have to do, it’ll take more than just the two of them: Barbara Gordon, a hacker and electronics expert; Artemis Crock, a young and talented thief; Kaldur, a reformed con man; Conner, an intimidating boxer; Raquel Ervin, an explosives expert; Zatanna, a professional Magician; M’gann, a gifted identity forger, and a few more. Traveling from Gotham to Metropolis, and breaking more than a few rules along the way, they’ll assemble a group the likes of which have never come together before. Vigilante justice just got a new brand of con artists and criminals.
A/N: Had this one half-written anyway, so I’ll just put it up before going back on that hiatus.
