Hello all you Teen Titans people out there! Allow me to introduce myself. I am the (not so) great and (not so) powerful SushiChica! (thunder claps). Some of you might have read my Teen Titans/Code Lyoko crossover (under Code Lyoko). I LOVE TEEN TITANS! I'm actually rather ashamed to say that the first time I saw Teen Titans, I thought it looked stupid. Of course, I only saw five minutes of whatever episode it was, and it turns out that I was the stupid one, go figure. Now I'm hooked. So...enjoy the fic!
I was watching a hysterical movie called Hope Springs and I think that's kinda where I got the basic plotline...only not...maybe a little part...okay, screw that, WHATEVER.
I hope you like the fic, but if you dont, that's okay too. People have different interests. If you liked it, awsome, tell me in your review. If you thought it sucked, that's cool too, just TELL ME WHAT YOU DIDNT LIKE so I can see what I can do to change it. I'm looking for constructive critisizms. By the way, I dont really appreciate people who are like "Oh, Raven likes Cyborg, not Beast Boy" or "Starfire shouldnt be with Robin, Raven should" The pairings in this fic are the ones I like. If you have a problem with it, get over it. Move on to another fic that better fits your pairing needs.
Dont expect me to change them.
Disclaimer: I do not own the Teen Titans. If I did, the show would be screwed and I'd have to fight off all the angry mobs with my lone weapon, the sacred and all powerful spork.
Chapter Dedication: To Colette, for always being there for me, even when I'm a world class spazzy nightmare, which I know I often am. Thanks for everything (and not in Jake's happy train way...hahaha)
Let the fun begin...
Starfire sat on the roof of Titans Tower, swinging her legs off the edge. She looked up at the stars that dotted the midnight blue sky of the early morning. Somewhere, among all those pretty, bright lights, Tamaran was shining too.
Tamaran. Just the thought of her home planet made Starfire laugh. Not the normal, happy kind of laugh, but more the "to hell with it" type. Why had she left home in the first place? War? Yeah, right. She could fight. To find "happiness"? As if. She was almost always happy, even when there was nothing to be happy about. So why had she come to this strange planet? Why had she left home? Though she searched every corner of her mind, she could find no rational answer. Starfire sighed.
What was her purpose in life?
"Starfire?" The alien girl turned to see Robin, sweat dripping from his face.
"Have you been training friend Robin?" Starfire flew over to the masked boy, concern in her eyes, "And why ever so early?"
"I woke up at three and couldn't get back to sleep," Robin shrugged, "why are you on the roof so early?"
"I do not truly know. To think, I suppose." Starfire returned to where she had been seated before, "Why is it that you are up here?"
"I noticed your door was open, and you weren't in your room. I figured you would be up here." Robin sat down next to the red haired alien. She smiled.
"And had you not found me on the roof?"
"Well..." Robin chewed on his lower lip, thinking, "Then I'd order a search party and scour the world until I found you." This time Starfire laughed.
"I am sure you would do that for anyone. That is the way you are." The alien girl got up, floating towards the door that lead to the interior of Titans Tower. "I am going inside. Good...morning I suppose..." As soon as the door had closed behind her, Robin sighed.
"Only for you Star. Only for you."
"Breakfast is served dudes!" Beast Boy shoveled tofu eggs, tofu bacon, and tofu waffles onto five plates and waltzed out of the kitchen with them layered on his arms.
"That had better not be..." Cyborg sniffed the food in front of him, making a face of complete disgust, "I'll just have coffee, thanks."
"Comin' right up..." An offended Beast Boy poured a cup of the dark liquid into a mug and slid it in front of the half robot. Cyborg took one big gulp, then spit it out, all over the cook in question.
"Do you just TRY to find every possible way to slip that tofu crap into my food!"
"Well what'd you expect? I'm a vegetarian!" Beast Boy watched the reactions of the other Titans. Starfire poked at the bacon, as though checking for signs of life. Robin was about to take a bite of the waffle, then hesitated. Raven was polite enough to actually sample some of the soy meal. The changeling was careful to watch as she picked up a small piece of egg and placed it in her mouth. Her eyes bulged, but she swallowed the mound anyways.
"...Interesting..." Raven choked down another section, "Okay, honestly, it tastes worse that saddle soap, but..."
"Fine, if you guys don't like it, FINE!" Beast Boy stomped off, taking his plate with him. Cyborg, though busy trying to disinfect his mouth from the soy coffee, saw the flicker of remorse in Raven's eyes. It was gone as quickly as it had come, but Cyborg had seen it.
Robin and Starfire left the room, hoping that Beast Boy's absence meant that they could skip breakfast.
Cyborg and Raven were alone.
"So...should we wrap those up for Robin and Starfire?" Raven gestured towards the plates left behind.
"I highly doubt that they'll want to eat it. Star probably prefers mustard anyways, and Robin's so hyped about Slade that he'll forget all about breakfast." Cyborg began collecting the plates and dumping them in the sink.
"You gonna wash those?"
"Nah, they can wait until later." Raven shrugged than turned to leave.
"Whatever. I'm gonna go meditate."
"Hey Raven?" The Goth stopped to listen to what Cyborg had to say.
"You meditate to hide-control-your emotions. Just as a little warning..." Cyborg gestured towards the door that Beast Boy had just stormed through, "It's not really working."
Raven blushed crimson, then covered her cheeks.
"I need to be alone."
"Azarath Metreon Zinthos" Raven breathed slowly, attempting to keep her reddening face in check. "Azarath Metreon Zinthos" How had Cyborg known? "Azarath Metreon Zinthos" Raven couldn't decide whether to thank Cyborg or to kill him for his little tip. "Azarath Metreon Zinthos" Was Beast Boy angry with her? "Azarath Metreon Zinthos" Was Beast Boy okay? "Azarath Metreon Zinthos" Why wasn't this goddamn meditation working? "Azarath Metreon..." Raven sighed. Screw meditation. The only thing that would help her concentrate would be to apologize to Beast Boy, then figure out whether she could allow Cyborg to live.
Raven flew out of her room and through the winding corridors and hallways to Beast Boy's door, touching down and knocking cautiously.
"If your name is Robin, Starfire, Cyborg or Raven, entry is so not granted."
"Open up Beast Boy, or I blast the door down." The slab of steel flew open.
"What? You're looking at me as though I've sprouted tentacles." Beast Boy would have laughed had he not been so surprised.
"Look, I just wanted to apologize for the whole breakfast thing. I'm just not a big fan of tofu."
"Yeah you and the rest of the world," Beast Boy sighed. "Well thanks for the apology anyways. I didn't really mind that much..."
"Well you made a big enough scene out of it, that's for sure." Raven leaned against the door's frame, watching as Beast Boy took a seat on his bed.
"Yeah...it's just agitating, ya know?" The changeling suddenly jumped up, "Sorry, do you want to come in?" Raven could smell the strange and rather unpleasant odors wafting from the room where she stood and quickly decided she didn't need to inhale any more than necessary.
"I'll stay here, thanks." Raven's eyes swept the room. "This place is a mess."
"No, this mess is a place." Raven actually smiled.
"More like a biohazard. What have you got in there?"
"You really don't wanna know." Beast Boy looked sheepish. "Well, anyways, thanks for the apology. If you ever need anything, my door's always open." Raven was struck by these words.
"Thanks I'll remember that."
An afternoon lull had crept over the Titans. Beast Boy and Cyborg were matching wits at their newest game, SSX3. Raven was curled up on the opposite side of the couch, reading her latest horror novel. Starfire watched at the two game obsessed Titans flew off ramps and executed tricks that would have surely caused any normal human being to brake every bone in his body. Robin was, as usual, reading up on the latest information about Slade.
It almost seemed as though there was nothing to do. No attacks on the city were being made. No one was trying to blow up Titans Tower. For the Titans, it was almost a bit too quiet.
Then the doorbell rang.
"Someone get that." Robin gestured towards the door.
"I'm not getting it, I'm winning!" Beast Boy executed a flawless La La La Lockstep and landed.
"Not for long!" Cyborg's character, Psymon, preformed an impeccable Superman Bar Spin. Beast Boy, distracted by Cyborg's words, crashed Moby, his player, into a tree. Psymon raced by.
The doorbell rang again.
"Someone, today!" Robin again motioned towards the door for the second time, though taking no action of his own.
Starfire hadn't heard Robin or the doorbell. She was too busy cheering for both Cyborg and Beast Boy, franticly jumping up and down and waving her arms with joy.
Yet another ringing sound, this time more urgent.
"Will someone answer the stupid door!" Robin slammed his palm on the table.
"Why don't you?" Raven spat, barely looking up from her novel.
Robin sighed and got up, slowly dragging himself to the door in defeat. It swung open, and on the doorstep stood a boy about the age of Robin himself. His clothes were odd and unfamiliar, dyed in different shades of blue, matching the strange boy's eyes. His hair was blond, almost white. His smile could have melted a thousand hearts.
"Can I help you?"
"Yeah, you can." The boy's eyebrow rose. "Is there a Starfire living here?"
"That depends. Who's asking?"
"I'm Scorpio." He smiled. "Starfire's boyfriend."
Gasp! What will happen? You'll find out soon, once I get a new computer. I'm getting it next week, so do not fret, I shall return...unless you all hate me...waaaaaaaaaaaa! Okay, I'm over it. Review please!
Love, SushiChica aka Linka
