If Questions For Titans
I just got the idea for this fanfic the day after I started asking my parents questions from my 'If…Questions for Teens' book. They're answers were hilarious! And even my little sister joined in! her answer we outta this world…well, really it was very much in this world, but anyway…these are going to be questions from that book, most will probably be rearranged.
Disclaimer: I don't own the Titans, neither do I own the book 'If…Questions for Teens' or the questions in it.
Here we go…
I knocked on door of the Titans 'humble home', the T-Tower and waited patiently for one of them to answer. It was about a few minutes before someone even came to the door, but I didn't mind. This column was worth it. I would win the award for sure. You see, I had entered a competition, a writing competition for budding journalists, I was nervous at first but I eventually I convinced my self to sign up. The prize was a full scholarship to any college that strongly supports any form of writing, so…I was looking forward to winning.
'If…Questions For Titans' by: Leeann 'Leena' Boss. That was my title. I had gone around my school and asked for specific 'If…' questions that they would want to ask the Teen Titans. I eventually narrowed it down to a couple of questions; they had to be spicy, interesting, and information-getters, but most importantly funny. That's what I do, I do the funny stuff.
There were about two other contestants from other schools that were my real competition, they, like my self, both had a different style of writing which gave all of us an advantage. The first was Ryan Sweet, or Sweet Ryan, if you asked his female admirers; he created a new way of writing my putting a bit more of him self into his writing then the normal writer, but still, despite the way that he talking in person, found a way to make himself sound way more intelligent. He was like on if those people who you would never guess would get anywhere in life. The second person was named Patrice Hill, although she chooses to take a more traditional approach to her writing, it some times gives her an advantage, especially if the judges are old people (no offense) (thankfully, our judges are younger hot new writers that are in the business on high levels). These two people are awesome journalists, but…they don't know me.
As I stated before, my name is Leeann Boss, but people who know me call my Leena. My approach on writing is to first grab the reader's attention first with my title, bring them in with the introduction, and then hit them with the facts. It's worked most of the time and I don't intend to drop it any time soon. Funny, is also another thing that is included in my style of writing, I believe that laughter is one a passage to a person's heart, two healing for the soul and sometime the body, and three a great way to spend my dates…and life.
As I stood there I got a good look at my surroundings and the tower. It was also sun-set, but the sky was still blue, which was a good sigh to me, because I tend to find my self asleep at the first sigh of night, but that was only I places that was new to, by tomorrow I'll be able to stay up all night with out having to get a wink of sleep. The Tower seemed to be made up of one glass, but the kind where you could only see through it on one side, and on the other it seems like a mirror; but I couldn't really tell but the angle that I was at.
When I heard ruffling with the doorknob I snapped back into reality at looked toward the door, there stood the leader of the Teen Titans, Robin. He smiled when he saw me, I didn't' know why, I wasn't even half as attractive as Starfire or even Raven…if that was even the reason. "Hey, you must be the Leeann, the writer? I'm Robin." He greeted me, and then put out his hand for me to shake. I didn't know what to do at first, I just couldn't stop staring at him…this was the Robin, proud leader of the Teen Titans, and former sidekick to the Batman. I had followed his whole career and now he was greeting me with his hand out. Great.
I shook his hand, "I'd have to live under a rock to not know that." I said, he chuckled. "Yeah, that's me, but just call me Leena, okay? That's the name I go by."
"What wrong with Leeann?"
"Nothing, I just like Leena better…Can I come in?"
"Oh, of course! Come in." When he let me in, I got a chance to look around. The place wasn't all that shabby, but then again when Bruce Wayne if funding you, your place tends to have a certain high class look anyway.
She was beautiful, those were my first thoughts about her. It wasn't a Starfire sort of beauty, 'cause believe me, standing next to Starfire, she just looked…average. But alone she was ravishing! But it was a plain ravishing, there was nothing out of the ordinary about her looks, personality…I didn't exactly know yet, but she seemed nice, and funny. Beast Boy was going to love her.
…Back to Leena's POV…
He led me up to the level of the house where the rest of the Titans were, it seemed like a pretty good place to have a party, a lot of room, but then again I didn't know much about parties, I had never really been to one…with dancing anyway. He took me to the common room where Beastboy and Cyborg were playing video games, and Starfire was watching cheering both of them on. I guessed she either didn't want to pick sides or she didn't know who she wanted to cheer for. Cyborg was alittle smaller than I had thought he really was, but then again, to me every one's tall, I'm only five feet, so I had no room to talk. Beastboy was alittle cutie, sorry bout that, but seriously, I thought Beastboy was cute, well, cute enough. Starfire was seemed like the ever bubbly, bubble jug she was known for, and she was tall…Whoa! She was tall; she seemed to tower over almost anything… and most defiantly me. I wonder how she and Robin kiss…does he have to stand on a bunch of books to reach her height? No offense, Robin. Where was Raven?
"Where's Raven?" I asked Robin, he seemed to be in a daze too, but I snapped him out of it.
"Huh? Oh uh, Raven? She's probably in her room. Do you want me to call her for you?"
"No just tell me where her room is, I'll get her." I said.
Robin raised and eyebrow at me, or at least that's what it looked like, you couldn't really see because of his mask. "Are you sure? She doesn't even like us bothering her when she's in her room?"
"No, I'm alright. I can handle it, I might help he get a good feel for her any way." I said.
"Okay…" he said then telling me where her room was. I practically ran there. Her door looked normal, but I knew that behind this door was a not-so-normal girl. With a background like hers, I would probably go mad; but not many people knew much about Raven anyway, they were all too busy staring at pictures of Robin or gawking – and drooling – at pictures of Starfire or J.Lo. I cautiously knocked on her door, and then waited for a reply. With out cracking the door she shouted, "Go away, Beastboy, I'm busy!" I chuckled, and she obviously heard, and said, "This isn't funny. What ever your laughing at drop it." she was digging herself even deeper than she already was.
"This isn't Beastboy." I said. Then I heard a footsteps coming toward the door.
She opened he door, "Sorry, bout that. The only person stupid enough to knock on my door at 8:07 is Beastboy. But seeing though you don't live here, I'll let your intrusion pass. What do you want?" she asked me through a peep in her door.
"Uh, I'm sure you were told that I was coming. My name is Leena Boss, and I'm…"
"The nosy wannabe reporter that's here to asked us pokey and embarrassing questions that are too personal and/or inappropriate for anyone's taste that has a working brain. I know who you are. What do you want?" she asked again.
"Well, I was told that all of you agreed for me to ask my pokey and embarrassing questions that are too personally and/or inappropriate for anyone's taste that has a working brain, so could you as be so kind to stick to your word and come out and answer my questions?"
Great! The little wannabe reporter's a smart alic; I couldn't wait to be quizzed by her! And how dare she mock me like that, who did she think she was. I may have agree to it, but I'm not gonna answer all her question right. I hate interviews, they're all about the same thing, out-of-place questions about things that don't even matter, like 'do you have a boyfriend?' Uh, one it's not even your place to ask such a question, and two do I look like I have a boyfriend? I'm going to enjoy this. My father might be dead but I'm that doesn't mean I have to act like Star. But I didn't go with her to the common room where Robin had the other titans just sitting patiently on the couch. Wonder how he did that?
…Back to Robin's POV…
Thankfully, the rest of the titans remembered what I told them about the reporter that was coming here there other day, and it was easy to get Beastboy and Cyborg off the games-station and wait for Leena. Starfire wasn't that hard to convince to sit still but she did have a couple of questions about Leena, most if which that I didn't know how to answer; I said I'll leave it for her to answer. Beastboy, of course, had to ask if the girl was hot, which led another question from Starfire, and a very harsh migraine; but it quickly went away when I saw Leena walking toward the couch with Raven following behind. It was the fact that Raven was following her it was that she was still in one piece! Either they got along or Raven just wanted her to stop staring into her room. I couldn't tell.
…Back To Leena's POV…
When I got back to the common room, I was surprise to see the rest of the Titans – accept Robin – sitting on the couch minus the games-station, and minus the cheering. I was impressed, I knew that Robin was good, but that good? I don't know he must have bribed them or something. But that really wasn't my concern at that moment, I was concerned about getting the answers to my questions before a plopped out. That would have been so embarrassing! Raven sat next to Starfire, and I took my position next to Robin, who looked like he just recovered from a headache, but that didn't matter at the time, because all my mind was on was my column.
"OK, well, hi, to all of you. my name is Leeann Boss also known as Leena. I am here to ask you guy some questions about your selves that I collected from my schoolmates and stuff. They're all just simple 'If…' questions really but I want you to answer them honestly and truthfully. That's all I ask of you right now. Any comments/questions?" I asked.
"Um, yea…" Oh, no…
Robin caught her words. "Uh, Star, could you hold your question till after she's done with hers?" he asked.
"Yes, Robin, I do believe that I could." She said.
"Uh…okay. I'll just go straight to the question from here…Um…"
Me: This question comes from a Tiffany Radnor. If you were to name a belief you hold that is different from the rest of the Titan, what would it be?
Beastboy: Tofu is the mother food. (Cyborg rolls his eye)
Starfire: Friend Robin is cute.
Cyborg: Uh, Start, I she meant a belief that's different from another Titan.
Starfire: Some one else think that Robin is cute?
Cyborg: I'm quite sure of that, Starfire.
Starfire: Oh, well…could you repeat the question please?
Me: If you were to name a belief you hold that is different from the rest of the Titan, what would it be?
Starfire: Oh! I believe that I will have a hard time answering this question.
Cyborg: Beastboy is an idiot…oh, wait…I take that back Raven thinks the same thing…
Cyborg: ignores Beastboy That SSX is a sappy game and all copies should be burned too make more room for the real videogames.
Beastboy: Hey! That game rocks!
Cyborg: You only say that because its the only game you can play right!
Robin: Guys, stop, all of this is going into the article!
Cyborg and Beastboy: Oh.
Raven: That silence should be a virtue.
Robin: Slade…is still alive. (All the titans moan)
Me: OK, this question comes from an Amy Ale. If you were to describe the 'perfect' boyfriend or girlfriend, what would you say?
Starfire: Um, he would be kind and understanding, he would also like to have talks with me and all answer my questions. He would complement me on my dress and have nice smile. He has to be cute!
Cyborg: She has to be into my sort of thing, you know? She has to dig technology, because half of me is exactly that! she has to have some sort of skills with a control, she has to have a sweet physique – no offense but I just don't want to walk around with a girl that's all over the place – and last but certainly not least, she has to love waffles!
Robin: Uh, she has to be able to convince me of anything, at least with her smile. That's the main killer for me, but she also had to have the personality of a diamond, it has to be real, I'm not gonna date someone for a rock, I want a diamond.
Starfire: Do I have those qualities, Robin?
Robin: Star! This is being recorded! he blushes
Beastboy: All she has to do is love me!
Raven: Pretty much everything Beastboy isn't.
Me: Alright, this question comes from a Jack Cameron. If you had to give up TV for one year, what would you do with you extra time?
Beastboy: I'D DIE!
Cyborg: I'd probably have to go into rehab, because of withdrawal.
Starfire: You mean television?
Robin: Yes, Starfire. TV is the abbreviation for television.
Starfire: Oh, well, I'll find something else to do to take up my time.
Raven: I don't even watch TV now.
Robin: I'll probably just go on with life the way it was, I don't' depend on TV that much.
Me: OK, um, this question comes from a Victor Pool. If you could tell this one person one thing, right to their face, without getting punished for it in any way, who would it be and what would you say?
Raven: My father. I hate you with a passion and where the hell do you come off doing that to my mother!
Cyborg: Uh, my 7th grade English teacher. Get a life and get off my case, so what if I could never remember what a linking verb was!
Cyborg: Or Any Spanish person. What's poop in Spanish? I've always wanted to do that!
Robin: Uh…I pass.
Raven: No, you will answer that question. I didn't answer it just to hear you say 'pass', so answer the darned question.
Robin: Okay…um…Kate Winslet. I wanna be your Jack Dawson.
Starfire: Who is this Kate Winslet?
Robin: Forget it Star.
Starfire: :mumbles: Well, he's not being my perfect boyfriend anymore…
Beastboy: Any girl that's totally into me. Call me at 555-6767. Check.
Raven: :mumbles: Your phone's gonna be off the hook.
Starfire: My sister, Blackfire. I don't think I like you very much anymore.
Well that's the news of the century, is it not?
Me: This on is from Tabitha…
The alarm went off, and the Titans had to got solve alittle Cinderblock problem. "Can I come please? This'll be great for my article, please? I need this. I know it." I asked. Robin said that it was too dangerous, but I didn't care; this was my article that I was talking about, I had to take the precautions that were necessary to get it completed and make it the best at the same time. He finally agreed but I had to stay in the background, I could have been their handicap. I just shrugged and said ok, it was all I could do really, I was about to watch a Teen Titans' mission first hand, there was no way I was going to through my self right in the face of danger; and Cinderblock is the equivalent of danger.
With Robin on his R-cycle, Starfire flying, Raven levitating, I got to ride in the T-Car, with Cyborg and Beastboy. Cyborg wouldn't let me drive but I got to sit in the passenger's seat. I was so excited, I barely kept my bladder under-control – but I did! Cyborg was driving so fast, I would probably drive this fast if my car could do what his could do; it was awesome! And Beastboy was just chillin' in the back, all sprawled out with his eyes closed like he was on Miami Beach.
"Hey, this ain't your room, get your feet off the cushion!" Cyborg yelled at him. Cyborg is so wicked…cool, that is.
"But this is my room…" Beastboy said shifting on the seat.
"Tap him for me." To told me. I just stared at first…he was so cute! I didn't want to wake him, but then again I didn't know what Cyborg would do to me if I didn't. So I did it. I shook his shoulder.
"Do it again. We're almost to the bank. What is with robbers and banks…?" Cyborg mumbled that last part but I herd.
"Money, I guess." I said still shaking Beastboy's shoulder.
"Yeah, but this is a toy bank."
I paused and sat in my seat, properly. "Huh?"
"Maybe he has a soft side…" I said drifting off.
"He's made of pure rock, his name is Cinderblock; there's nothing soft about him."
"There's nothing smart about him either. He's like a baby, all babies have a soft spot, you just have to find it." I said. Cyborg paused. I knew he was thinking about what I said. But then I got back to waking up Beastboy, I unbuckled my self and climbed into the back. He was stirred alittle when a sat in his lap – I HAD NO WHERE ELSE TO SIT – but I didn't wake him up. Instead he just sat up, with his eyes still closed.
"Darling…there no one who could replace you…" he said. He was sleep talking!
"I'm not your…" I started, but he put hid finger to my lips.
"Shush, let Beastboy say all the words…or make all the moves…" then he lead forward…HE WAS GOIND TO KISS ME! (Not that I was objecting…)
"Gosh, he's smoother in his sleep then when he's active…Leena…what's…" Cyborg said but, was halted by a large crush applied to the front of a car…the T-Car! Cyborg jumped out the car, and immediately started shouting. Beastboy, who was now awake and blushing because he was caught in mid-air with his lips puckered, quickly slid his feet from under me and got out the car also. It took me about two seconds to recover from what just happened but I did get out the car after. The T-Car was ruined, it took me a while, but I eventually calculated how much time it would take to fix the car…about 4-7 months, and that's with Cyborg as the head mechanic; I sighed at the fact that it was fixable, a lot of the car was alright, but the most important parts…the part's under the hood, were going to have to be replaced. I rummaged through the things under there, while Cyborg and Beastboy joined the other Titans in stopping Cinderblock. Who was, by the way, responsible for the huge fist mark in the T-Car. When I finally finished taking note of all the parts that were useable, I ran over to where the Titans were and pulled out my camera – which I had hanging around my neck. The battle was already under way.
Starfire was doing her best with her star-bolts and stuff, but they were just making little cracks. Robin was basically being useless, all he was doing was chipping into Cinderblock's rocky body. It was Raven and Cyborg that were doing the most damage, and Beastboy got a whack in the head and was out. I ran to him to see if he was ok; he had a horrible gash in it that was leaking blood heavily. 'Who told him to go at Cinderblock in the form of a dog? How crazy is this guy?' I thought. I quick took off my outer shirt, and wrapped I around Beastboy's head, I didn't want to kill the guy but didn't know what else to do, I pressed down on the gash to stop it from bleeding. When I was content, I picked him up and carried him to the T-Car. It was un-drivable; I thought quickly turning my self around where I spotted the R-Cycle. 'Robin's gonna murder me.' Was all I could think, but it was the only way. The hospital was too far away, so I had to go back to the Tower. Thankfully the door recognized Robin bike, and let us in, and because you the 'garage' was connected to the tower, I got in with out the alarms. I quickly ran him to the infirmary, laid him on the bed and started rummaging through the stuff for the antibiotics and bandages.
I didn't see Beastboy get knocked out, and I don't think the others did either. I was too blinding by my rage on Cinderblock…HE SMASHED MY BABY! AND HE WAS GOING TO PAY! I couldn't think, I could feel at least not about anything but beating this guy…I couldn't even breathe voluntarily, I had to have my brain control that, but even then it was hard. I thought I was giving 200 percent, but really it was just 80; I wasn't thinking, and that led to my disadvantage. After Cinderblock sent me flying back into a car, I got the chance to retrospect. And then I remembered what Leena said. '…He's like a baby, babies have a soft spot, you just have to find it…'. "…You just have to find it!" I mumbled. I knew what I had to do.
I got up and ran back to the other Titans, I knew I didn't have time to explain my plan to them but I did need their help. "Raven, through me!" I shouted, Raven picked me up and lunged my at Cinderblock. 'Babies soft spots where usually a little bit above the forehead.' I thought, while sailing through the air. I readied my fist and the other Titans sensed a plan and held their attacks. I was almost there…Cinderblock looked around and probably wonder why every one stopped, but when he finally caught on, it was too late, I smashed though his head, causing him to fall. "All babies have a soft spot." I said smirking.
"Huh?" Robin asked running up to me.
"On the way here, Leena and I had alittle talk. Don't worry 'bout it, I'll tell you later." I said waking my hand in the air, it had a few dents and scratches but it could be fixed before our next battle. But then I noticed the lack of 'dudes' in the conversation, which brought me to ask…"Where's Beastboy?" The other titans looked around, but they didn't see him. we started searching the area, Maybe he was knocked somewhere in the last minute and couldn't move, or maybe was stuck some where and couldn't talk. We looked for about a minute before Raven called to us.
She had a camera in her hand. I recognized it immediately. But Robin beat me in the speaking part. "Leena." He said. There was a short moment of silence before the next sound was heard.
"EEP!" Starfire screamed, before jumping behind me.
"What?" Robin asked then looking in the direction that Starfire was pointing. Was that… "Blood."
Was it Leena's? When did she get hit? It was probably during my rage-fit. Darn! If only I could have gone with that plan sooner! Beastboy probably carried her somewhere, to take her away from the fight.
"Is it Leena's blood?" Robin asked. "I can't be Leena's."
"Why not? I mean she was here." Raven said.
"But she…she wasn't in the fight…"
"Maybe Beastboy was lunged at her." she responded. But that clicked something in my brain. Why would he take her camera from her neck. I snatched the camera from Raven.
"One second, Raven, I think I have something." I flipped it over. YES! It was a digital camera, with a screen! I quickly turned to back on and waited, impatiently, through to the booting-up process. When it was done I went to 'View Pictures.' A picture of Beastboy's head…? Why did she… "Oh my goddess of light!"
"What did you fi…" Starfire said looking over my shoulder, before letting out another 'EEP'. I showed it to the others and immediately we all ran for our rides. But mine was destroyed, and Robin's was…stolen?
"What the hell! Not today!" he complained. Starfire grabbed his shoulders and said. "We cannot linger on such things, Robin. Beastboy might need us."
"The hospital's too far away, she must have gone back to the tower." Raven said picking my up and my smashed car.
"Right, so let's move."
…Back To Leena's POV…
I didn't hear them come in. But I did hear them up running to the infirmary, Cyborg alone sounded like a herd of buffalo. But who am I to blame them, I just left with out any clue but my camera. Beastboy was sleeping still on the bed, I didn't want to wake him so I let him sleep. He looked sooooo cute…but the titans spoiled that moment.
"Beastboy!" Starfire cried entering the room first. "Is he in the okay?"
"He'll be fine he just needs rest. Let him sleep."
Raven, Cyborg and Robin went through the door in that order, they first went to Beastboy, to check on him, and then they cam to me to thank me for bandaging him. I just nodded in response. They were all being real nice about it, I was thankful. Because I didn't anyone angry with me for… whatever! I smiled and asked, how the battle went. They said they won, cinderblock was destroyed. Cyborg said the only reason that they won was because of me. That, of course, startled me at first, but then he started talking about our conversation in the car. It hit he then, HE FOUND THE SOFT SPOT! I was happy for them but then I noticed Robin's inability to look at me.
"What?" I asked.
"Nothing it's just that…you don't have a shirt on…"
Abadyabdip, abadyabdip! That's All Folks! I think it's a cute ending for a chapter, don't you? Yes, she does have a bra on. Please! What kind of person do you think I am! It's a sport's bra, by the way, anyway…that's all for that chapter, hoped you liked it, and the fact that I might not make it a one shot if I get reviews…hurry, hurry, hurry!
