Strong Like You (Megaman, Prompt 117)
Title: Strong Like You
Challenge/Prompt: #117 -- Strong
Word Count: 123
Summary: Deep down, he just wanted to be as strong as his brother.
Metalman always was the stronger one, at least on the surface.
He always faced the danger of getting struck by his own blades when he fought; heck, when he sparred with Quickman, he faced the danger of getting struck by the Quick Boomerang, his other weakness. But he stood and would fight anyway.
Unlike his brother, Quickman feared that kind of thing. He could never bring himself to spar with Flashman, because his weakness was the Time Stopper, Flashman's weapon. Sure, he had brute force and speed, but what did that matter when he was afraid of what might happen because of one of his rash, stupid decisions? Heck, he feared death, and ran away from it no matter what.
Truly, he envied Metalman; the other was lucky that he had such a steely resolve.
