Author's Notes: Now that I'm finished with posting Tea With Terra: Prelude to Torture, I can finally finish this up. So…here we are at the last bit of Schizophrenia, and I am really sorry to everyone for taking so long. I was just distracted.
To Flying Star – It was my pleasure to review your story. I really like it. And if anything, well, that proves that I do read people's reviews. And respond. So no, I don't qualify as brain dead. As a big heads up to everyone, if you're looking for some good fanfiction to read, go check out Flying Star's fics and poems, especially "Drifting". They're awesome. Thumbs up to you, Flying Star, and thanks for reviewing! (Now this goes for everyone, please review!)
Disclaimer: I do not own Teen Titans. If I did, Terra would not exist, Cyborg would have a girlfriend, Robin wouldn't be so obsessive, Slade wouldn't act like a pedophile, Gizmo would know some good insults, and Raven and Beast Boy would have multiple episodes devoted to their relationship. With a few dedicated to Robin and Starfire, of course.
Quote of the Chapter: Cyborg -You wanna pass me, but you can't pass me! You can't pa- You passed me!
Schizophrenia – Part Three (Last Part)
By Mint Dragon
The Teen Titans sat in their respective movie-viewing seats in the living room. Starfire flew in, handing each of the others a bag of popcorn. Having finally mastered the art of the microwave, she was constantly making popcorn. Much to the annoyance of Raven, who found that the popping noise was rather irritating.
Starfire stood in front of them and clasped her hands together, smiling.
"Now that I have delivered to you the many bags of tiny popped corn, which type of movie shall we watch?"
For once, all of the Titans were at perfect ease with themselves.
"Perhaps we have one such movie…" she mumbled, thumbing through the Titans' rather large selection of movies. Her eye landed on one and she pulled it out.
"Will this suffice?" she asked, showing it to her teammates.
Robin read the title aloud.
"An Action-filled Sci-fi Horror Movie With A Dash Of Comedy"
The Boy Wonder glanced at his teammates, and then shrugged.
"Sounds good to me."
"It's movie time!"
Shrugging, the Tamaranean teenager popped the DVD into the player and plopped down between Robin and Cyborg. Her cybernetic teammate dimmed the lights, picked up the remote, and the movie began to play.
Inside Cyborg's mind, well… See for yourself! Do I have to tell you guys everything? Jeez…
All of Cyborg's emotions were gathered in a group in front of a huge screen, avidly watching the movie and munching on popcorn.
"So," Intelligence muttered to the blue-circuited Mischief sitting next to him, "what exactly was it you had us do earlier?"
"I switched Beast Boy's shampoo for red hair dye."
"That will certainly be…interesting…"
"SHUT UP BACK THERE!" Aggression hollered. "WE'RE TRYING TO WATCH THE MOVIE!"
Muttering under his breath, Intelligence turned back to the movie and resumed his popcorn munching. Well, at least the sci-fi effects were decent…
Yeah. See? You didn't really need me to tell you anything. I guess that's because Cyborg doesn't really have too much going on in there, does he? Well, I guess we'll see how Mischief's prank plays out later. Hopefully Beast Boy will show some signs of intelligence and not lather himself in red hair dye. Oh, who am I kidding…
Starfire watched the movie avidly, sipping occasionally on her mustard bottle, but unbeknownst to those around her, an intense argument was taking place among the Tamaraneans emotions.
How many different ways can I say it? Just take a look and spare me the agony, okay?
"WILL YOU TWO BOTH KINDLY BE QUIET? I AM TRYING TO FOCUS ON THE MOVIE!" Focus yelled at her pink and yellow clad twins.
"We shouldn't…" Smart grumbled. The pink-clothed Starfire smiled brightly.
"Fine, but just this once…"
Okay…well…I wonder what that was all about…
Robin froze, his eyes going wide as he felt Starfire latch onto his arm during a particularly grueling action scene. He swallowed his popcorn with difficulty, blushing.
Oh, come ON. Do you really have to look? Well, fine, but this is the last time!
"Gotta catch Slade, gotta catch Slade, gotta catch Slade…" Obsession repeated over and over, still pacing in the exact same steps he had been that morning. Affection was skipping circles around him, crying out for joy that Starfire was holding on to him. And the others were nowhere to be seen, having left to the two as hopeless cases and moved on to better things. Like watching the movie.
Hey, I can't blame them.
Beast Boy, for once, was actually focused on the movie. But because he's, well, Beast Boy, let's take one last look inside that peanut-sized brain of his, for old time's sake.
"Wow, she's hot," Lust commented on the heroine of the movie for the sixty-third time.
"No, ya think?" Sarcasm replied.
"Will you two be quiet?" Amiable snapped. "We're trying to watch a movie over here, in case you haven't noticed!"
"Hey, where's Oblivious?"
"He's hiding behind Lust, idiot. He's been there for the last five minutes."
"Um, hey guys, what were we talking about?
"Oh." Amiable blinked, and then resumed his movie watching.
A moment later…
"Wow, she's hot."
What more did you expect, really?
Raven took a sip of her orange soda and continued to watch the movie from beneath her hood. Out of the corner of her eye, she spotted Starfire clinging to Robin for dear life, and to her left, Beast Boy was drooling slightly. She turned back to the movie, munching on popcorn.
"Yeah! That's right! Give'em a left, and a right! Wow, what an uppercut!" the dark-green cloaked Combative yelled, completely focused on the action scene in the movie. Cynicism sighed, glancing at Robin and Starfire.
"Utterly pathetic," she commented. Morbid nodded.
"It's pointless. We're all going to die in the end anyway."
"Aw, lighten up, Morbid!" Happy exclaimed. Morbid turned her steady, unblinking stare towards the pink-cloaked emotion, and Happy faltered before bouncing back with a cry of,
"Hey! That gives me a good idea!"
"You? A good idea? Hey Morbid, you were right. The world is ending." Cynicism remarked. Happy was undeterred, and instead, a mischievous smile found its way to her face.
"This movie is scary," Timid said, trembling. Happy gave her a hug.
"Don't worry. If you get too scared, we can always just latch on to, say, Beast Boy."
"No. Stop right there." Cynicism cut her off. They were joined by the maroon-cloaked Pride.
"Cynicism is right. There is no way that I am going to allow you to reduce ourself to holding on to Beast Boy." Pride agreed.
And that, dear reader, was the end of that.
I hope you enjoyed that, and if you did (and you really don't like Terra) check out my other fic, "Tea With Terra: Prelude to Torture" and the upcoming "Tea With Terra". Also, in a little while I'll be coming out with a new fic, hopefully even more hilarious than this and my "Black and Pink All Over" fic, though it'll be hard to top that one. So I'll see ya around, and until then, have a great summer!
(Oh, and Review. Please. I mean it. PLEASE.)
