“This particularly rapid unintelligible patter isn't generally heard and if it is it doesn't matter.” (Gilbert and Sullivan)


Welcome
I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up. In the real world, I'm a retail doormat and minimum wage slave. At heart and online, I'm a writer, artist, and all-around creative type. I've always loved to write. I consider it my passion. Even when I was little I would write and illustrate my own stories, stapling the pages together into "books". I penned three YA fantasy novels and several short stories as a teenager, and all are now available to read online at FictionPress. I've been something of a word whore, learning about editing and technical writing skills, and these days I write quality fan fiction for fun. I randomly blog real-life shares and reviews, too.

I'm a lifelong fan of animation, including anime, both watching it and learning how it's made. My artwork is mainly cel style illustrations. My current fandom is Cartoon Network and DC Comic's Young Justice and the Invasion Runaways. You'll find a lot of love for them here.




Go Team Runaway
Get to know your resident YJ Invasion Super Friends



Virgil Hawkins || Static || 15 years old || Adapted from the Dakotaverse, Virgil was not, in fact, abducted as a runaway. The Dakota City teen was kidnapped by members of the Light while waiting for his older sister, Sharon, at a train station. He was handed over to the Reach as a test subject.

The aliens' experiments activated his dormant meta-gene, giving Virgil the ability to manipulate and generate electricity (fulgurkinesis/astrakinesis). Although not extensively shown, this includes the power to control magnetic fields and electrons in mechanical devices. Virgil is often seen riding a manhole cover like a flying disc, using his electrical currents to keep it afloat, and static cling to keep him safely attached.

Unlike his fellow liberated Reach abductees, Virgil has a stable home life, and he is the only one genuinely excited to have superpowers. He jumps at the chance to join the Team, even gaining a Mentor in Black Lightning; but his first thought is to return home so his folks know he's alright. At the end of the Invasion, Virgil adopts the codename Static, even wearing a T-shirt with the lightning-bolt shield.

Tye Longshadow || Apache Chief || 16 years old || A resident of El Paso, Texas, Tye is the best friend of Jaime Reyes, although he is originally unaware of the fact his friend is the superhero Blue Beetle. When living with his widowed mother, Shelly, and her physically abusive boyfriend proves too much for the headstrong teen, Tye decides to run away to Houston―but not before calling Jaime from the bus stop to inform him. It is here a henchman of the Light abducts the Mescalero Apache boy.

Sent to the Reach alien ship as a research specimen, the experiments activated his dormant meta-gene, giving Tye the ability to project his energy into an astral form. His power is visible as a blinding golden aura of a human figure around his body, and at first Tye could only project the figure while asleep―proving he couldn't control it. Learning to master the outbreaks took some time, as Tye often subconsciously destroyed buildings or ran off with the other kids in order to protect them. However, when under control, Tye could choose how big or small to project his life-force, and the form acted like a barrier and shield. The astral body also possessed superhuman strength, yet was still capable of being damaged, inflicting pain back on the host body as well.

At the end of the Invasion, Tye started a relationship with Asami Koizumi and decided to return home with her, discovering his mother had finally dumped her boyfriend. (As stated by creator, producer, writer Greg Weisman.)

Eduardo "Ed" Dorado Jr. || El Dorado || 14 years old || From Argentina, Eduardo ran away from his abuelo's home in a reckless attempt to be with his father in America, where Dr. Eduardo Dorado Sr. had been living in Taos, NM―to work at S.T.A.R. Lab's Erdel Initiative as a research scientist in Zeta-teleportation. Kidnapped by members of the Light en route, Ed was sent as a test subject to the Reach.

The aliens' experiments activated his dormant meta-gene, giving Ed the ability to teleport at will. His powers engulf his body in a golden glow with an uncanny likeness to the Zeta-beam his father studies, provoking more bitter fights between father and son. While being held at S.T.A.R., the scientists said he could only teleport himself along sight-lines. However, during an attack on the labs, Ed managed to rescue his father by transporting both of them, showing he had the capability to teleport others too; but at a price, as both portal and passenger experience near-crippling pain.

Eduardo does not want his new powers; he has openly stated he desired a cure instead of answers. At the end of the Invasion, Ed chooses to mend his relationship with his father, who accepts him back into his life, giving him a home in the States. (As stated by creator, producer, writer Greg Weisman.)

Asami "Sam" Koizumi || Samurai || 14 years old || Not much is known about Asami in canon other than the obvious fact she is from Japan and was kidnapped as a runaway. She was abducted by members of the Light and sent to the Reach for testing. After being rescued by the Team, Sam refused to give out any information about herself, staying at S.T.A.R. Labs for research instead of going home.

The Reach experiments activated her dormant meta-gene, giving Sam the ability to manipulate her chi (energy) as a physical power. Made visible by swirling circles of light and wind, Sam can generate a powerful impulsion to propel her body in any direction, with enough force (direct or backlash) to leap skywards, knock an opponent out, or even demolish weak structures. With practice, she's able to focus her energy into smaller ripple attacks. Sam is often seen igniting her power by clapping her hands together in a traditional Japanese prayer gesture.

At the end of the Invasion, Sam chooses to live with her new boyfriend―Tye Longshadow. (As stated by creator, producer, writer Greg Weisman.)
