A/N: Hi everbody! My summer's been pretty slow and dull lately, and I've been bored stiff. So, I got to thinking, "What would happen if Beast boy were bored?" And the plot just took off from there! I should be updating every day or every other day or so, seeing as I hate it when authors don't update for a long time.
Disclaimer: I don't own Teen Titans. I wish I did, though. But then again, I wished I owned Fort Knox too.
Summary: Beast boy is bored. He decides to read a book, which turns out to be Raven's Diary... BBRae hinted RSF
Beast Boy was bored. He had played every video game, done all the pranks he could think of, watched TV, and even trained, trying to find some form of entertainment, with no success. He looked about to see what the other Titans were doing. Maybe they were doing something that could entertain him as well.
Cyborg was sitting in the middle of the sofa playing on the Gamestation. He was playing Doomspeak 3, which Beast Boy already had the high score on. So there was no point in joining him.
Raven was curled on the side of the sofa reading a book. She looked cute like that, all peaceful-like, he thought. Since reading a book was pretty much a one-person thing, though, Beast Boy, albeit reluctantly, mentally checked off Raven on his list.
Robin was reading through newspapers on the dining room table, looking for hints or mentions of Slade. Seeing as Beast Boy loathed researching, that was out of the question.
Starfire was in the kitchen, preparing a Glorg. 'Like I'll ever be bored enough to do that,' Beast Boy smirked to himself.
Giving up, Beast Boy flopped down on the sofa opposite Raven, and declared aloud, "I'm BORED!"
Cyborg glanced at Beast Boy, before returning to his game. "Too bad," he remarked offhandedly, focussed on beating an on-screen zombie.
Starfire peered out of the kitchen. "Perhaps you would like to assist me in the making of the Glorg?" she asked hopefully.
"No thanks Star. I'm no good at cooking glorgs," Beast Boy said, making an excuse up on the spot.
"Surely you can think of something to do," Robin remarked from the table, still intent on the papers.
"I've tried! I can't think of anything!" Beast Boy moaned. "C'mon guys! Give me some ideas of something I can do!"
"You could always play chicken on the railroad tracks," Raven remarked dryly, not bothering to look up from her book. A vein pulsed in Beast Boy's temple.
"Go to the mall!" said Starfire eagerly. "I shall abandon my glorg cooking and accompany you!"
"That's okay Starfire," Beast Boy said hurriedly. "Don't abandon your glorg. I don't really want to go to the mall anyway."
"You could clean your room," Cyborg said distractedly, still intent on his game.
"Yeah right," Beast Boy snorted.
"You could always train," Robin said. "You can never train to much."
"I've already trained, and it's too hot to train more," Beast Boy whined. "There's nothing for me to do!"
"Except whine, apparently," Raven said dryly.
"You think of something for me to do, then!" Beast Boy retaliated, annoyed at her sarcastic attitude.
"Read a book," she said, turning her page.
"Read a book? Why would I want to do that?" Beast Boy asked disgustedly.
"Because you have nothing better to do," Raven said. "I thought we already covered this."
"I don't want to read a book!" Beast Boy groused.
"You don't want to be bored either," Raven pointed out. "Reading would solve that problem."
"Actually, it's a good idea, Beast Boy," Robin said from the dining room. "You could learn something. Go ahead and read a book."
"But we have nothing to read!" Beast Boy complained. "There aren't any books anywhere!"
"That's true," Robin remarked. "Raven's usually the only one who reads. Why don't you ask her if you can borrow something?" A vein was seen pulsing in Raven's temple at this.
"Raven?" Beast Boy asked. "Can I borrow a book?"
Raven seemed to be torn between letting Beast Boy touch something of hers to let him read her books since she had won the argument, or blowing something up at him.
"Fine," she said shortly. "They're on the bookshelf in the corner of my room. Don't touch anything else."
"You're letting me go into your room?" Beast Boy asked, astonished.
"I'll know if you screw around," she replied curtly. "So there's no reason not to, seeing as I can always hurt you later if I find out you misbehaved."
"Me? Screw around in your room?" Beast Boy asked, faking offense. "I would never!"
"Just go get a book," Raven said, rolling her eyes.
"Okay! I'm going! I'm going!" Beast Boy said, heading up the stairs towards Raven's room. "Don't get your pantyhose in a twist!"
As he left, Cyborg remarked, "Do you really think it's a good idea to let Beast Boy into your room?"
"If he touches anything, I have an excuse to hurt him," Raven said, returning to her book. "If he goes and reads a book, I am saved from his whining. It's a win/win situation."
"Good point," Cyborg said, returning to his game.
Please, review! I'll probably end up updating sooner if enough of you want me to.
Hint to come: Beast Boy finds Raven's Diary!
