Ihave this idea. I want to make everyone aware that there are more than just three realtionships in the Titans Tower (Star/Rob, Rob/Rea, Rea/BB). I am writing 7 different short stories with 7 hardly (if ever) used pairings. That is my mission.
Please note: None of the stories are conected. I don't own the Teen Titans.
And Then There Was Two
Cyborg watched in disgust as Raven and Robin kissed noisily. He grimaced at the thought of what Beast Boy and Terra were doing, locked up in a room far away in the back of the Tower. He sighed at the reality of it all. He was the only one left out. Well, him and Starfire. When it came hormones, no one bothered with them. They had decided early on the Starfire was just too different from them; they shouldn't even try to worry about her emotions and stuff like that. And Cyborg, he was half machine. He didn't get those feelings, right? Wrong. With all this lovey-dovey shit going on, he was feeling a huge need for a girl. But who wanted a robot man? He could just get it on with his computer, right? Well, in a way, everyone could. He had tried cyber sex before, but he found it fake and disturbing. Not his piece of cake. He wanted to have it for real. Now, he wasn't a virgin. He had had sex once before, when he was still all man. But Starfire was a virgin, so she didn't understand what he did. He knew this from trying to talk to her about it. He just wanted to know how she dealt with all the crap their teammates were doing. She just acted cute and ditzy, not really getting his questions. In the end, he had left her more confused about Earthlings than he had intended. Maybe he should try to talk to her again. He was kinda starved for human contact at this point. A conversation with Starfire couldn't hurt.
He walked up to the roof of the Tower. He went up there once and a while, when he needed to breathe, and he always saw Starfire. She was usual there, unless they had to fight crime. He wondered if she slept up there now. He emerged and saw her immediately. She was floating a ways off the ground, away from the protection of the roof. If she stopped flying, she'd fall into the water below. Cyborg shivered, trying not to imagine it.
"Don't you ever worry?" he asked, coming as close to the edge as he dared. He had always been a little uncomfortable around heights. Being half robot didn't change his fears.
"Worry about what?" Starfire didn't move at all.
"Like, what would happen if you lost control and you fell. What would you do?"
"I suppose I would fall," she turned to look at him, "If it happened."
"Aren't you ever scared, though?"
"Not really. Why should I be?"
Cyborg shrugged, "I dunno. I guess I'm just saying that if it were me, I'd be a bit nervous."
"Well, you have a reason to be nervous," Starfire flew back down to the roof and came to rest in front of Cyborg, "You have a limit. 100. I do not."
Cyborg decided it was about time to change the subject, "I came here to ask you something."
"And what would that be?" Starfire settled herself down on the ground, looking out onto the lake.
"Uh..." Cyborg considered whether he should sit down too. He didn't. "I was just wondering how you felt about all the...stuff that's been going on between our friends."
"Well, Robin and Raven are kissing all the time, and I never see Beast Boy and Terra anymore. It bothers me. I was wondering if it bothers you too."
"It does bother me," admitted Starfire, "A little," she added. "But they are entitled to their feelings, although it is not very nice to exclude us completely."
"That's what I was thinking," Cyborg said. He sat down as best as he could. It was easier to sit in a chair for him. "I mean, they shouldn't ignore us all the time. We need to do something together, as a group. And I don't mean a mission."
"That is a fabulous idea," proclaimed Starfire, acting like herself for the first time in a while, "I will go suggest it to Robin. Why not you go talk to Beast Boy?"
"If his brain is functioning properly, sure," muttered Cyborg. He doubted Beast Boy could even form coherent speech at this point. That's happens when you been doing God knows what for days on end.
The two walked down into the Tower together. They were an odd pair, certainly. The beautiful, red headed alien and the giant machenical man. They could start their own circus. Welcome to Titans Tower, freak central. But they weren't freaks. They were idols. Everyone wanted to be a Titan. Cyborg would happily trade placed with one of those poor fools.
They split up, Starfire heading to the main room, and Cyborg to the back. He found his way to Beast Boy and Terra's room without much difficulty, except it was kinda creepy because they had chosen to hide away in the part of the Tower no one had been in since it was first built. Cyborg reached the room, and knocked on it. No answer. He pound on the door until an irritated Beast Boy opened it. He wore nothing but dirty boxers. He looked greener than usual.
"What do you want?" he snapped, "I'm busy."
Cyborg caught a glimpse of Terra, wrapped in a blanket, before she ducked out of sight, "We need to talk."
"About us. You know, friends. You two have been hiding back here for almost a week. I think that's enough sex for now," Beast Boy turned a slight shade of pink, "We have to do something together, all of us. Not just us, but Starfire, Robin, Raven, and Terra. You need to realize that you aren't the only people left. There's still a world outside your room."
"And I'm not going to be bothered by that world," sneered Beast Boy, "I'm fine with what I have," and he slammed the door in Cyborg's face.
Back up on the roof, the two sullen teammates regrouped.
"No luck with Beast Boy," Cyborg said, "He wants to stay in his fantasy land with Terra. There's no hope for him. For either of them."
"It is the same with Robin and Raven," confirmed Starfire, "They ignored me until I hit Robin. He yelled at me, so I gave up." She sighed, "I think that this is all a cause lost."
"I have to agree with you, as much as I hate too."
They were quiet for a time before Cyborg asked, "What do we do now?"
"Well," pondered Starfire, "We could do what they do."
"What are you talking about?"
"Well, if they are having such a wonderful time, why should we not? We are going to have to be by ourselves anyway, why not do something enjoyable."
"You mean you want to be reclusive like them? Or do you mean...you want to kiss and stuff? But, it's just you and me." Cyborg looked, and felt, completely confused.
Starfire smiled, "Why not? There is nothing stopping us. Unless, of course, you are uncomfortable with it."
"I don't understand. You want to make out with me like Robin and Raven are doing. Is that what you mean?"
Cyborg stared at her like she was crazy. Was this really Starfire? Was this the way her planet worked? He had never really thought about Tamaran customs before now. But there wasn't much time to think, because Starfire was giving him a look he had never seen before. She was also getting closer to him. Why was he so nervous? He'd had girlfriends before; he's kissed before. But this was Starfire. No, it was him. He hadn't been in a serious relationship with anyone since he was...rebuilt. Starfire was in his lap now. She was gently touching his dark skin, tracing the lines of his human face. He stopped feeling her warm fingers as she moved on to the metal half.
"I do not mind, you know," she whispered, "You could look any way you wished and I would not care."
Cyborg took her hand and kissed it, "I think that's what I wanted to hear for so long."
They smiled at each other. Slowly, Cyborg reached out and touched Starfire's face. She closed her eyes and rubbed her cheek against his hand. Just as slowly, Cyborg leaned over and kissed her. Starfire draped her arms around his neck, and pulled him closer. Neither one noticed the unusual black mist in the corner.
Raven reappeared in the main room, which was already occupied by Robin, Beast Boy, and Terra.
"I don't think we have to worry about them," said Raven with a smile. The others smiled too.
There you go. Cyborg/Starfire. Cyborg is in, like, 4 of these stories. Why doesn't he get any love? Well, now he does. Please R&R. I would really like to know what you think of my mission. Thanks.
