Old Friends, New Feelings

Yep. This is my first Teen Titans fanfic. The characters are gonna be a little OOC, but whatever. Like the summary says, Starfire's brother shows up! Hooray!

Disclaimer: I do not own the Teen Titans. But I do own The Brother (yes, he has an actual

name, but you'll have to read to find out! Great incentive, eh?)

Robin flopped down on the couch at the Tower, and the rest of the Titans followed suit shortly after. Except for Starfire, who wasn't there for the battle. The alarm had rung early that morning, while Star was still asleep. Robin, not wanting to wake her, had quietly shut off the alarm and assembled the rest of the Titans.

Naturally, when Starfire awoke to find the rest of the Titans gone, she panicked. She searched the city for their communicators, and found them a few hours later, after the newest would-be criminal, RatDude, had led the team on a merry chase through the sewers, been caught by Cyborg, and promptly beaten senseless. This did not make Starfire happy. She did not like being left out of things, and was at the moment glaring darkly at Robin, seeming to forget that the only reason he left her out was so that she could sleep.

Just then, the alarm rang once more. Cyborg cursed while the rest of the Titans merely groaned.

"What now?" Beast Boy groaned, slumping down in his seat. "Can't we just ignore it?

"No, we most certainly cannot." Raven replied tersely, getting up, and them promptly falling back into her chair. "Okay, I guess I'm not going, " she grunted, glaring directly at Beast Boy, " but you are."

"Awww....." Beast Boy slumped even further, but then his eyes lit up. He turned to Robin, his eyes pleading. "Robin? Do I-"

"Yes" Robin cut him off. " You, Cyborg, and Starfire are going. No arguments," He said, seeing BB's mouth open once more.

BB sighed. "Oh, well," he mumbled, "It was worth a shot"

And so he, Starfire, and Cyborg left. As they were walking down the city street, Cyborg turned to his companions, a thoughtful look on his face.

"Uh, guys? Do either of you know where this thing is supposed to be?" He asked.

"Right here!", A voice cried out, moments before a dark purple Starbolt slammed into Star.

Blackfire slowly floated down to the ground, her eyes flashing,

" I told you I'd be back, little sister, and here I am." She grinned "But I suppose it's only fair to warn you, you don't stand a chance this time."

And she was right. Despite Star's best efforts, and along with help from Cy and BB, she was still thoroughly beaten. Repeatedly. For several minutes. And so it came to be that Star was lying on her back, with her sister looming over her.

" See? And now I'm going to ki-" Blackfire was cut off by a huge red Starbolt slamming into her from above.

A dark shape hurled itself from the roof of the nearest building, smashing into a crouch a few feet from where the evil sister lay. It rose, and the clouds parted, throwing a beam of moonlight onto it, giving him an almost angelic look. And it was indeed a him, dressed in a black trench coat, black pants, shoes, and turtleneck. He wore black gloves, and a floppy black fedora was perched on top of his long black hair. He had dark blue eyes, and was an almost exact carbon copy of Starfire, except more masculine and without certain....ahem.....developments.

"Tsk, tsk tsk, " he scolded in a strangely sweet voice, like a silk bag being dragged over gravel, with a slight rasp. He leapt into the air, spun, and came down feet-first into Blackfire's stomach. Her head jerked up, and then fell back down with a crash. She was out cold.

"Now, now, that wasn't nice! Trying to kill your own sister." He shook his head. "Kids. Well, I guess I count as one, but.... whatever." He turned to Starfire and grinned. She gave a small cry, then ran to him and crushed him in a huge hug. BB and Cyborg sweatdropped.

"Uh, Star?" Beast Boy asked, rather uncertain, " Who is this?"

Star released the strange boy, and he fell to the ground, gasping for air.

"This," She began, a huge grin on her face, " Is my brother."

He got up, still panting a little, and offered his hand to Beast Boy.

"Hey there. I'm Zacharias."

"I'm Beast Boy", the green one replied, grinning. "I'm the comic relief"

"Uh, that's great..." Zacharias, said, raising an eyebrow.

"And I'm Cyborg." Cyborg said, offering a hand to Zacharias.

"Yo" Zacharias lapsed into homie talk, grasping Cy's hand firmly.

"So" He turned to Starfire, "When do I get to meet Robin?"

BB and Cy sniggered. Star blushed.

"W-w-why would you want to meet him?" She stuttered, blushing an even deeper red.

"Because he's your-" He noticed the way she looked, and changed what he was going to say." Your teammate?"

" Oh, yes, that. well, I suppose we should go back, since this situation needs no more fixing..."

"Alright! Let's go!"
