Betrayal: The Dark Heroes!
Naruto x Starfire
I once saw an unfinished fic where they covered Blackfire going to prison at the end of Sisters. Have no idea where it is and I can't find it. But that did give me an idea. Basically what if Blackfire was successful in replacing and framing Starfire?
For such an interesting and real plot line that was hinted in the show unlike most of the crap we see about the titans having younger mary sue ocs appearing out of the ass that a lot of them have...I lost my train of thought so yeah. I notice that nearly all Dark Starfire stories have her being heart-broken by Robin cheating on her with Raven/Blackfire then she runs off to Slade/Red-X and starts wearing a slutty outfit and a bunch of stupid shit happens. (God why can't people be more original?)
So yeah this is more on aspect of Starfire feelings of betrayal. Like most of my stories there is a darker and edgier spin.
And I really don't want to leave it as I did in the last part. A massive cliffhanger so like the others, going over the issues, fixing up the past mistakes and fixing them up.
Changed some things like making Naruto a herald like figure like the Silver Surfer to explain his increase in power.
Betrayal...the that was the only thing on the forefront of her mind. It was the only that kept her sane as the feelings of rage and sadness boiled up inside her.
The being was a bipedal person with a long black bangs that framed her face, small bangs hanging over her forehead, and has small eyebrows with the same colour. She was wearing a sleeveless top showing her stomach, a mini-skirt, and thigh-high boots that were all purple. With them she had a belt, silver armour plates on her neck and arms, and a metal armband around her right arm.
Starfire took a moment to register the guards voice as he aimed his sphere at her which radiated an electric pulse. Without a hint of emotion she walked down the ramp as she was escorted into the large prison whose walls were made out of the material known as Dolomyte. These steel cuffs normally would have been shattered by the power of the Tamarenean princess, but the nature of her powers, being connected to her emotional state put a bit of damper on that and now she could hardly muster a single positive thought. How could her sister do this to her? Why haven't her friends come and help her? The only thing that seemed to hold true was the deep sheeted fear that she would be replaced.
As she entered the prison dozens of alien creatures leered at her and make obscene comments. A highly attractive female like her being in a place like this was just asking for trouble. She was able to just dodge out of the range of a Xenomorph's mouth-tongue as one of the guards ran over and shocked the creature.
''In Prisoner!" The Faceless as they were named ordered. This was the name bequeathed on these being as they were cybernetic robots that looked exactly the same and lacked the ability to make expressions made up most of the guards and peace keepers in this little quadrant of the galaxy.
This facility was created for criminals that were too dangerous for the regular prison institutions for a world to handle, but not a big enough threat to permit the higher-ups to bother with them. She was then imprinted with a cell number to the back of her neck. The normal dexterity her species was known for was useless here as she couldn't help but cry out at the searing pain of the laser beams. 'Number 8789020-23AAX.'' The guard said as he closed the door behind her.
''So we have a cute one huh?'' A voice said, this one rather gruff and slithery causing the Auburn haired girl to look up. He was easily eight foot tall with rough violet snake-like skin, snake-like yellow eyes, and a fork like tongue. ''I don't know why the boss is wasting a good piece of ass like you and putting you with...this guy. Though I suppose when he's done I can have the leftovers as the Medical ward is already full.'' He said with a mirthful chuckle as he walked off.
The sound of growling alerted Starfire to the presence. She turned and in the darkness all she could see was that of two large crimson slits. For a moment the alien princess was startled but her gaze harden as she readied to defend herself. She was a warrior and the way of her people, her very pride made her refuse to give up so easily. The figure lunged at her and she swayed to the side easily dodging the blow and threw a punch connecting with its jaw and sending it crashing into the wall causing a crack in it. The figure recovered just as easily as claws revealed itself along with sharp teeth. It lunged once more, bearing its teeth as it swiped at the orange skinned alien cutting her cheek. In retaliation she was able to manifest a brief sparkle of a star bolt bright enough to blinded the figure. Thankfully enough the guards saw it fit to remove her cuffs before tossing her in the jail cell.
''A Tamarenean?'' The figure asked with a dark chuckle, as he stood up and his glowing red eyes softened and gained a more humane shape. The circular irises shined a sharp cerulean blue as his voice softened. ''What's one of your kind doing here?''
''It doesn't matter...'' she said bitingly. ''Nothing matters anymore.'' by how dejected she found it was obvious that whatever hope she once had was quickly fading.
''Well it's not hopeless, in fact it's a blessing in disguise. I thought I was going to have to wait a few more weeks but your abilities will do.'' The figure said as he stepped out the darkened recesses of the cell. His face finally became visible, odd marks, whiskers in fact were on his face; three dark visibly whiskers on both his left and right cheek as his golden blond hair seemed quite dirtied. ''I'm Naruto Uzumaki by the way and I didn't mean you any harm. It's just because of the shit I been through I...have a hard time dealing with new people."
As Starfire studied him she realized there was something familiar in his eyes. It was so similar to hers...filled with betrayal. ''I am Koriand'r of Tamaran, not that it matters anymore.''
''Really? I think I heard of you; the princess!'' He exclaimed upon realizing just why she seemed so familiar. ''Aren't you suppose to have auburn hair?'' He asked noticing her hair was quite dark, raven color dark with streaks of violet in fact.
''The work of my sister.'' She spat out venomously as her hands trembled in anger. Out of all the things her sister had said and done over the years this was absolutely unforgivable. She had forgiven Komand'r for so many things and tried to be sensitive to her sister's status of the unfavorite on Tamaran but framing her for a crime, impersonating her identity, and sending her to a prison where she would spend life imprisonment or even be killed?
''Let me guess? Framed you for a crime right?'' He asked as the Tamaran nodded. ''How would you like to pay her back?''
''How? I'm stuck here in this prison the same as you.''
''Well as I was saying earlier I have a plan to break out and with your ability to fly we can definitely do it.''
''How? I can't fly...my powers are based on my emotions and...'' The statement was left in the air as Naruto walked over and looked her up and down.
''I know a lot about emotional stability and training. Let's just say when people try to erase your emotions and make you into a weapon you learn to tap into certain things. So come on now...a partnership beneficial to the both of us. It's the only way I can get to Earth.'' Upon mentioning the Earth he notice her tense slightly. ''So we're going to the same place. No way you can refuse can you? It's the only way to pay back your sister for this isn't it?''
Revenge? Was she the type of person who wanted that? The type of person was capable of it? She wasn't sure but at the very least she wanted to face her sister about her crimes against her. She then notice he was staring intently at her.
''You really are cute.'' He said as he was a few inches away from her. Starfire didn't know why but she found herself blushing at this closeness. The only person who made her feel like this was...Robin. He cared didn't he? He would be here soon? Maybe her team didn't abandon her? Maybe she was jumping to conclusions and they were trying to find her. ''You're thinking about some friends back on Earth right?'' he asked, as if he read her mind.
''Team? What like a group of Tamarean soldiers or something?''
''No, we were, super heroes so to say. We were a group called the Teen Titans. The five of us...'' She then began telling about her team mates. Cyborg, the guy sound like he was a cool gamer type who worked with technology a lot and laid back. The Raven girl, he couldn't recall anyone he knew that acted like what Starfire have described. Though there was something at the back of his mind but he dismissed it and didn't to worry about it later. Now the Beast boy kid reminded him a bit of himself in the younger days, but he didn't notice the emotional turmoil when she began describing her leader. The only one he knew about, but it was due to him having some run-ins with the boys mentor, Batman. In fact it was because of the damn Justice League he was in this prison in the first place. Thank god for that the space police conveniently came and picked him up before the league could put him in one of those prisons for super criminals, not that they ever worked from what he heard. For god sakes when was somebody going to grow a sack and start killing these psychos he kept hearing about?
''You know that's weird. I mean I'm not trying to turn you against them or anything, but I think you guys have been friends long enough to at least know a bit more about each other than the basics.'' He spoke up at the end of her tale. ''I mean it takes weeks worth of traveling from Earth to here unless you use a special vessel with a powerful engine. I have run in with another team, a world super hero team known as the Justice League and I know they have a mind reader, a female magician, and a bunch of other characters who should have been easily able to track you down if they were made aware of the situation and certain things come to mind. A. Your team in fact does not know you well enough to tell the difference between you and your sister and the charade she has is still going on. B. The League does know, but since they're so busy policing the world that something like this is too small for them to devote too much time and resources too or the last one. C. No one simply just cares. All I can offer you is the way to find out which of these options are true.''
''It sounds like a criminal yourself. Why should I help you?''
''I'll admit I'm not clean, but I have the world's interest in mind; mostly my interest because the Earth will be destroyed if I don't do something and I still think of that place as home. A being known as The One of End was sealed away in the Milky Way Galazy and the only thing preventing him from being released are two seals. These seals are the progeny of both a God of Evil and a God of Good. I know where one of these two seals is. On earth this is a half-demon, the progeny of Trigon who I was searching for before my capture. If this being is released then well, more than just the Earth will be in danger. So you'll help me right?''
While Starfire was a bit skeptical about the story, there was no point in her sitting here and wasting away. ''Alright, I'll do it.'' She said with a nod as the blond smiled.
''Ex-cellent...since it's your first day here take the bed. You'll need a full night's rest so we can wake up early tomorrow and make sure you're in the proper emotional state for us to begin training for out escape.''
Starfire nodded and mumbled a thank you as she went over to grimy colored green mattress and tattered black sheets. The only thing she could do now is sleep and hope this mysterious blond could in fact back up his words.
Neither of the two realized their actions to come would result in a change influence the fate of the world greatly
''You have to stay vigilant and be prepared...'' His words were deeply intoned in her mind. The cell that the two of them occupied was rather small so their movements were constricted. ''You have to block everything and take complete and utter control of your emotions. Control everything...grief, anger, sadness along with joy and happiness. You have to gain power from those negative emotions and turn them into fuel for strength.'' A few days had passed since Naruto had began teaching her how to tap into her darker emotions. Teaching her what she needed to survive and awaken what he described was her true potential. That strength came not from suppressing your dark half but accepting it.
The blond noted that so much power and concentration was often placed on suppressing one's nature they could never give it their all, but if they accepted the animal that was in so to speak they could unleash their full potential. Like always the meal bell rung. Most days the prisoners were often only fed during morning and night intervals. A practice to cut down on food costs some of them theorized. So like always the prisoners were herding into the mess hall where from time to time prisoners started having seizures thanks to the mass amount of neon green jumpsuits the prisoners were left and forced to wear.
The two found themselves between a massive, Nine foot alien called a Tetramand with two pair of tank like sized armor and four eyes. His deep red skin going with his green jumpsuit unfortunately led to many quips by inmates who had been on earth an extended period. On the other size was a mummy like alien known as Thep Khufan. The atmosphere, being dimmed by the poor lighting and the smoke from the cigarette.
''So what's a pretty little thing like you doing here?'' The large four armed alien asked Starfire much to her confusion as he looked up and down.
''He's asking what's a pretty looking thing like you doing here,'' Naruto clarified for her.
''You speak multiple languages?'' She asked her...partner...in surprise ignoring the musclebound alien.
''You pick up a few things if you've been around the places I have.''
''Hey babe why don't you and me...'' Starfire reacted violently to the stranger touching her intimately, flinging him over her shoulder and sending him crashing into one of tables. As the steel table dent several of the prisoners cheered at the promise of action happening soon. Starfire still had issues from her confinement by the gordonians. Weeks of torment under the hands of those monsters and when it seemed like their tastes were going to go into a more implicit nature she knew she had to escape. Even if it never went that far it didn't mean that she still didn't still have nightmare of the sexual torture and humiliation that did occur. That no matter how she tried to put a smile on her face and try to forget it changed her perception of things forever.
One of the guards from up above flicked his cigarette over the catwalk as it landed into one of the prisoners food. The other chatted him up about what was about to occur.
''You little Troq.'' He snarled as he pushed himself up.
''Well that's a bit rude.'' He said then turned to the Tamarenean. ''You would think if they bothered with these bracelets on our legs that translate whatever language were speaking into something we can all understand, they would monitor them or something to make sure they're working or not being complete lazy ass-holes and not keep the turn off option from whoever they bought it from. Then again I've seen bigger cases of stupidity.''
As Naruto was saying all this she was wondering if the blond was going to react as the Tetramand was in arm's length of them. He casually side-stepped grabbed one of his arms, drove his face into one of the food sinks or whatever the hell they were named and twisted his hand and proceeded to drown him as the alien futilely tried to strike or grabbed the blond with his lower arm only for him to dodge it with ease. A diamond shard shot forward just right above the blond's hand causing him to let go of the Tetramand. ''Shard...'' He said looking up at the diamonoid known as a Petrosapien.
''So that's Shard?'' Starfire was informed all about the diamondoid the most feared of the guards. It was known that Shard had never been defeated in combat by any prisoner or left any of the ones who attempted to escape alive.
Shard narrows his eyes as Naruto growled and looked away. ''He's going to be our biggest obstacle. His species near invulnerability negates most of my attacks. Let's eat...'' He said as they grabbed their trays. After meal time was over all the prisoners were herding back into their cell without a word. The last time someone tried to ignite a riot they got a shard through the head courtesy of Shard. Like always the prisoners were searched and several of them seem to pay special attention to Starfire. The only thing that kept Naruto from straight out throttling them or what kept the guards in line was the fact that Shard was there overseeing things.
''You said Shard could be a problem? What about that snake beast from my first day in the prison?''
Naruto looked up and faced the emerald eye goddess. As he was about to answer her he thought back to that for a moment. ''Serpeen could be a bit of a problem, but he is nowhere near as problematic as well Shard.'' As he continued to gaze at her he realized that she was quite tall, maybe taller than him. She then have an amazonian sort of look to her. Naruto got on the bed and laid on his side. ''I need a few more days to recover enough strength before we can make an escape.''
''You never did say how you managed to become so injured?''
''Let's just say being kicked in the ribs by Wonder woman, pile drive by someone who I don't know, and struck in the back by several batarangs by Batman were just part of what I was hit with should paint you a pretty story. If I was only as strong as I was when I first entered this world I would have been dead, but lets just say I've become the herald of a being that does not want the End to come and it came with a few nifty upgrades.'' He said as he turned and nearly jumped up when Starfire joined him on the bed.
''Hey baby why don't I show you what a real hung beast can do!''
''Hey there Tamarenean. Why don't you let me show you what someone with a real throb can do to satisfy you.''
The prisoners continued to jeer as Starfire snuggled up against the blond. ''Starfire...are you...''
''I'm sorry...you must think I'm weak huh?'' She asked, feeling ashamed that she was letting the words of these low lives bother her. Making her feel so dirty that she wanted to lash out at everything. Trying to suppress the tears and thoughts. What if they failed? What if Naruto was killed during the escape. What would happen to her? What would happen when her only friend and link to sanity would be taken from her?.
''No...''He started to stroke her hair. ''And don't worry...we won't fail and I won't let them hurt you.'' For a moment he hesitated before he placed a tentative kiss on her right cheek. ''So don't worry Star...will get out of here soon.'' He said as his head rested against hers. ''You don't mind if I call you Koriand'r do you? Not that Starfire isn't a beautiful name, but Koriand'r is more Majestic. On earth Star is such a common name, but Kori on the other hand is unique...it's...you. And I like to get to know you. We both might find ourselves in a situation where even if we escape we might have to continue and rely on each other so...you know.'
''Hhm...Kori...I like that.'' She said as a small smile formed on her face. Even if she had to suffer this hell for a few more days as long as Naruto was with her she could bear it.
