In this paper we construct the supergravity solutions for the orthogonally intersecting null scissors and the fluxed D-strings. We name the latter as the super-crosses according to their shape. It turns out that the smeared solutions are U-dual related to the intersecting (p, q)-strings. Their open string properties are also studied. As a by-product, we clarify the supersymmetry conditions of D2-D2 pairs with most generic fluxes.
