F is for Flash

PG13. Toonverse Flash, so I kind of cheated. Absolutely plot-free.


Radio hosts call it the quiet, most often the few contrarian ones who are anti-Flash. "We've got quiet," they say fake-cheerfully when Flash is off-planet with the League, "let's all enjoy it as long as we can."

Most of the people aren't so happy about it. Flash can't be everywhere at once (well, technically he could), but both the police department and the citizens feel a little bit safer when somewhere in the city there is a goofy guy in a red suit who can outrun bullets and walk on water.

He's no Superman, but the people of the city doesn't care. He's theirs, silly sense of humor and all, and when he isn't at hand... Well, they worry.

I mean, he could get hurt out there.

Nobody says a word, of course. But he gets free coffee every time he comes back, while usually they try to keep him away from the stuff. It's how they say "welcome back". He drinks all the coffee -ten to fifteen cups in as many places- and all day everybody can hear the background buzz.

That's how they know things are all right.

.finis.

*g* Flash makes most things better.

I remember when the core members were discussing how to deal with Cadmus' fear of them becoming Lorders and Flash said something like "Relax! As long as you keep me alive, it won't happen. I'm the League's conscience, remember?" Everybody just looked at him and then J'onn said "Let's explore that idea some other time." :D

I do love the relationship between Flash and Keystone. He's so very much theirs, you know?

Yeah. Not even Metropolis made a museum for Superman; there is something interesting there, I think.

That was like a shot of sugar-helium. Such a sweet thing to write, and so good to hear that people take care of him. *commends Wally to your care, away from writers who hurt him.*

Wally does tend to bring forth the best in people, doesn't he? When he isn't tempting you to strangle him, that is... *g*

ToonWally *is* the cheerful, caffeine-assisted background buzz that everyone is glad they can hear. Beautifully evoked.

:D

There was an Incident, you know, when he saved an Starbucks from a giant boomerang, and they gave him a Free Coffee Forever card. They took it away after a week - people still don't like talking too much about That Week.

*g* It's hard not to. Even Batman has a soft spot for him, and that's saying something.

I just been reading around and saw this. So funny and so true. While reading the comments, I got the odd picture of a supervillain from outside Keystone/Central City trying to take the cities over by capturing the Flash, only to have the citizens start booing him and throwing things when he tries to show off and then having to fight off some angry Rogues because, damn it all, Flash is theirs to take out and they're not going to let some random supervillain do the job!
