Flash and Red Arrow sat on the Watchtower, staring down at Earth.

"Kinda surreal, isn't it? Up here in space, our planet looks so small, so insignificant. We're just like specks of dust compared to everything else," Flash said.

"Yeah. That's very insightful of you, West," Red Arrow agreed.

"I guess so," Wally said.

"Now you've got me thinking-" Roy began.

"You, thinking? Unimaginable, " Wally cut him off.

"Haha. That more relates to you, though. Anyways, haven't you ever wondered what our purpose is? What's our place in this vast universe? What's the meaning of our lives?" Roy asked.

"Ah. The answer, the meaning to life, the universe, everything else... 42," Wally responded, smirking.

Roy simply lifted an eyebrow and shook his head. The two friends turned back to the view, both contemplating what purpose their lives held.


The Justice League was having a meeting that included every member after the whole ordeal with Cadmus. The 7 founders sat up front, above of everyone else... Something Flash didn't fully agree with.

Regardless, the meeting commenced, and Flash didn't speak too much, wanting everyone else to be able to get a word in.

They were arguing about the laser cannon that had fired down on the city. They were arguing about violence, fighting, and more things that Flash didn't particularly care for.

"Hey! I've got a question for Flash! He hasn't talked much," Hawk yelled.

Flash's eyes widened for less than a second, but he looked at Hawk and nodded, letting the man know he could continue.

"What do you think about all this? Fighting, violence, the cannon- What are your thoughts?" Hawk asked.

"You sound like a reporter," Flash commented, "But... No matter what anybody tells you, words and ideas can change the world."

There was a moment of silence for a few moments, before someone said, "How is that an answer?"

"Kinda reveals my view on violence, doesn't it?" Flash asked, "Oh, and we shot a laser cannon at a city populated with civilians. That city is a mess right now. I'm gonna go clean up." He stood, knowing what needed to be done.

He looked at Red Arrow, "You- You're coming with me." Roy stood up without speaking. They started walking out.

"Woah, you're just leaving in the middle of a meeting?" Someone asked.

"Flash, what are you doing?" Superman asked.

Flash stopped and grinned, "Carpe diem, my friend. Seizing the day!" He winked, and ran Roy out of there before anyone could protest.

At the city in New Mexico, Wally and Roy were working together on cleaning up a collapsed building.

"Dead Poets Society has some really good quotes," Roy said as they worked.

"Sure does. Sad movie, though," Wally said.

"Why did we leave the meeting suddenly, again?" Roy asked.

"To make a point, I guess. Show them that fighting's pointless. Love can change the world in a moment, but what do I know?" Wally asked.

"Isn't that from an Ed Sheeran song? Whatever. I don't know if the others really got the point, Kid," Roy said.

Wally lifted an eyebrow, and gestured to where a Javelin was landing. Justice Leaguers were stepping out.

"Looks to me like they got it just fine."


Hey everyone! Hope you enjoyed this chapter! I tried to go for a more serious tone today, just because a tone change can be a good thing. Or a bad thing. Did anyone else notice how during the end credits of Infinity War there were no bright colors and the music was sad?! That's not a tone change I like, man.

Anyways, I thought I'd let you all know that I have not actually seen Hitchhicker's Guide to the Galaxy. I do know the 42 quote because this teacher I had said it all time... He was a horrible teacher and was fired before he had even taught at our school for a year, but that's aside the point! I have seen Dead Poets Society, and I loved it... And hated it, because it's a movie that actually made me cry. That's a big deal, guys. I don't cry in movies, normally. I also included an Ed Sheeran quote from the song "What do I Know?" because I love that song and Ed Sheeran in general. That song's good. Listen to it.

Thanks for taking time out of your busy schedules to read this,
