This here is a BRAND NEW fanfic of mine. Be warned, it does contain death and a whole heap of angst, so be advised! lol

Although Beast Boy is my favorite, I wanted to try and write a tragedy...without BB trying to be funny. Trust me, it's hard!

I do not own the Teen Titans, so don't sue me.


Cinderblock had escaped from prison (again) and was destroying a warehouse full of artifacts from an archeological dig in Japan. The Titans were called to help, as usual.

"Titans Go!" (I don't need to tell you who said that! Heh heh)

It all started with Raven moving the artifacts with her powers in order to prevent them from damage while the others were fighting.

"Good thinking Raven!" Robin exclaimed before throwing a few electric disks at Cinderblock.

Meanwhile, Starfire was hurling a barrage of starbolts at the cement creature while Cyborg was shooting at it with his sonic cannon. Beast Boy had turned into a rhinoceros and was pummeling it for as long as he could before he returned to human form, dizzy from hitting his head so many times.

While all this was going on, Cinderblock was slowly destroying the warehouse. Walls were destroyed, some forklifts were broken into little pieces, and the most dangerous, the ceiling beams were being taken down as well.

Raven dodged a forklift while saying, "Azarath, Metrion, Zinthos!" This made the forklift fly right back at Cinderblock, knocking him over. However, as he was falling, he grabbed a ceiling beam and it started to fall...fall right on top of Starfire.

"Star!" Beast Boy screamed while pushing her out of the way. Before Star could realize what happened, they all heard a deafening crash.

"BEAST BOY!" Starfire screamed.

The beam had crushed beast Boy. Raven had eventually taken some beams that had already fallen and wrapped them around Cinderblock, restraining him.

Meanwhile, the others were trying to clear the rubble to find Beast Boy and when they found him, it was a horrible sight. His legs were bent in odd ways and he wasn't breathing. Robin performed CPR and brought him back while Cyborg called 9-1-1.

"Oh friend Beast Boy! You sacrificed yourself for me!" Starfire sobbed while holding her unconscious green friend's hand.

Soon the ambulance arrived and took BB, and the others as well, to the hospital.


At the hospital, all of the Titans were silent. They couldn't believe that Beast Boy, of all people, could be hurt. He usually turned into some big animal and lifted the rubble away and he was ok. This time he didn't get a chance to. The wait in the waiting room seemed to last an eternity, although it was only a few hours.

Cyborg just sat there, silently staring at the carpet. Raven went outside to meditate.

"I just need some time to myself...before my emotions go haywire," their dark friend had said.

No one could stop her. Starfire sat sobbing into Robin's shoulder.

"This is all my fault! If I hadn't have needed saving, our friend would not be damaged!" the alien girl sobbed.

"Star, it isn't you're fault. What happened, happened, and there's nothing we can do but wait and hope he's alright," Robin said, trying to cheer her up.

Starfire just looked up at him with weary eyes and all Robin could do was hold her.

Just as Raven walked back in, they heard a voice.

"Excuse me, Titans?" a male nurse, with his nametag saying, "David," said softly.

Starfire immediately jumped up and said, "Is Beast Boy alright? Please tell me that our friend isn't too damaged!"

"Well, I hate to tell you this, but your friend is dying. Almost all of his internal organs were damaged, his spine was crushed, and he's in a coma. It would be a miracle if he made it through the night," David said.

"NOO!" Starfire screamed as she fell to the floor in tears.

Robin and Cyborg looked down, hiding their tears, and Raven put up her hood.

"Can we go and see him?" Cyborg asked.

"Yes. I don't think he'll 'go' without seeing you all first. He may or may not hear you, but it probably would give him comfort to hear your voices."


Then the Titans walked into Beast Boy's room, one at a time, to spend some quality time with their dying friend.

First up was Cyborg. "Hey BB," Cyborg said softly, "You'd better wake up so I can beat you at Gamestation!"

There was no response.

"C'mon man, this isn't funny! Please wake up! We need you!" Cyborg told his unconscious friend, but he knew it wouldn't help. "Well Beast Boy, I just wanted to let you know that I love you man and that you were a true titan. We'll miss you," the cybernetic teen said wiping away a tear as he left the room.

The Next one in was Raven. "Beast Boy?" Raven asked. She didn't know what to say. What was she supposed to say to a lifeless body?? "Umm...You were a great friend, even if you did bug me sometimes. I'll miss you, and so will all the others," Raven said as she got up. As she turned back to look at his green form surrounded in the white that was the hospital, she whispered in his ear, "I always have thought you were funny, but don't tell anyone." She could just hear him thinking, I knew it! Then she left the room.

The next one in was Robin. "Hey Beast Boy," The boy wonder said solemnly. "This is so weird seeing you like this. It's as if this is all a dream and you're going to jump back up and say 'Gotcha!' Like a big joke...Well, you were a great member of the team and it will never be the same without you. You will be greatly missed," Robin said as he wiped away a tear from behind his mask. He then got up and turned to have one last look at his friend. Robin couldn't bear to see him like this so he turned to leave the room.

The only one left was Starfire. She stared at the door with what looked to be sheer terror. She couldn't believe that her friend was dying. It took every ounce of will power she had to make her body move into the white room to say her last words to her green friend.

She then walked into the room.

Beast Boy's green skin and hair were a splash of color against the white of his hospital gown, sheets, and the white walls. He was hooked up with what seemed to be hundreds of plastic tubes. He lay there so peacefully, one would think he was sleeping.

"Oh dear friend Beast Boy," Starfire began, "I am so sorry that this had to happen. It is my entire fault. I thank you for saving me, but I wish I were lying there instead of you. Oh Beast Boy. The Tower will not be the same without you. There will be no one there to eat nauseating amounts of tofu while I watch. There will be no one to 'crack jokes.' We will all miss you...especially me." The alien girl then laid her head on his shoulder and began to sob uncontrollably when there was a deafening, monotone beep coming from his heart monitor.

Starfire's eyes widened and she ran outside to get help. "Please help! My friend is dying!" She screamed.

A handful of nurses and doctors then rushed in as well as the Titans. Starfire stood there in horror. Have I killed Beast Boy?? She thought.

The doctor then turned around and shook his head and said, "Time of death, 6:51 pm."

Starfire fell into Robin's arms sobbing uncontrollably. All the others put their heads down in respect. The doctor that proclaimed BB's time of death then turned to Robin and said, "Starfire seems to be having a hard time dealing with this so I'll prescribe some sedatives for her. However, since she is Tamranean, and I know little about how they work on a neurological basis. They may or may not work." Robin just nodded.

They got Starfire's prescription and they all headed back to the tower in silence.


End of Chapter one!

Beast Boy has died! How will the other Titans deal? We all know that Starfire's gone nuts, but will the sedatives work? How will their next encounter with a bad guy go without Beast Boy's help?

Stay Tuned!

(P.S. It may have looked like Raven had feelings for BB...SHE DOESN'T! -waves CyRae flag-)
