A/N: Ugh, I am so unhappy with this chapter. No seriously, writing this is like in insult to my wordy artistic ability. (No, I don't know what that means exactly, but it made me laugh.. which is sad) I like to think it's a chapter that's just letting you all know this story still lives. The next one will be ten times better... once I overcome my long-lasting writers block. Actually, I know where I wanna go with this (I think)... I just can't put it into a nice sounding chapter.

Chapter Nineteen: Two Small Words...
People often misjudged the Teen Titans green-skinned, animal-changing prankster. Some thought he was weak. Those people were idiots and way wring. Would you call a T. Rex weak? I don't think so... Some thought he was way too immature. Those people were... kinda wrong. Some thought he was stupid. Those people were... well, he wasn't as dumb as they thought. But, Beast Boy loved and cared for all of his friends... except Robin. Right now, if Robin jumped off a cliff, Beast Boy would celebrate. He could just hear the party music now. Maybe a little bit Buster Poinster's only hit: "Hot, hot, hot". Well, there wouldn't be much to celebrate; Starfire would be pretty beat up about it, even if she was pissed at him. There would be even less if he didn't fix this God damn problem he created.
This brought him back to his problem. He knew what his problem was and he knew how to fix it, but what he didn't know was how to get from point A to point B. Wait, he knew someone who might. And he could make up with them too! It would be like killing two birds with one stone, even though he was totally against animal cruelty since the better part of his day was spent in animal form.
But while Beast Boy continued to traipse around the gothic titans head, Robin was voicing his thoughts to the still annoyed alien princess.
"...And that's what I think happened," Robin finished. He had been pacing back and forth in front of Starfire for fifteen minutes. Come to think of it, he had done a lot of pacing in the past month. It seemed like no one could think correctly if they weren't doing something whether it be pacing, or in Beast Boy's case, smoking. He shook his head, trying to clear it, and looked at his alien friend. The entire time he talked, Starfire had said nothing. Now he was done, and she still wasn't saying anything. He was almost getting ready to give up on her and look for Beast Boy, but at last minute she decided to grace him with words.
"This is why Raven has told us many times to stay out of her room," she said, coldly. "I hope friend Beast Boy had learned his lesson." With that, she sat up from the poofy red chair she had taken a seat in and walked out of the room. Robin had a moment to wonder if things would ever be the same in Titans Tower again, and then he too walked out of the room.
Beast Boy walked into the familiar library that held Raven's thoughts and memories, and wasn't surprised to see it both empty and red. He was seriously starting to hate that color; it was everywhere. Like sand. Sand gets everywhere too. Robin was the Sand Man! He was everywhere and had the power to put someone to sleep because he was so incredibly boring. ...After this catastrophe ended he was seriously going to think about seeing a psychologist; there was something wrong with him mentally.
"Is anyone here?" Beast Boy called out. The only response he got was the sound of his own voice echoing back to him. He gave a frustrated sigh; he really wanted this crap to just end. "Knowledge? Happy? Anger? Anybody?"
"You know, you really don't know when to take a hint," said Raven's voice. Beast Boy knew it wasn't the "real" Raven, but one of her counterparts; he was hoping it would be Knowledge, but at this point, he'd take any of them. He looked around the library like vicinity, and soon found a flash of yellow robes. Moments later, Knowledge appeared carrying a handful of... green books. Raising his eyebrows slightly, he fought to keep a straight face. Never let someone know when you've caught them by surprise. Rule number 12 in the Teen Titans "This is how we do things" rulebook. "I'm surprised you even decided to come back here."
Beast Boy shrugged. "I was in the neighborhood," he said, and mentally smacked himself right afterwards. He was trying to make this easier for himself, not harder. Knowledge said nothing. Beast Boy sighed, "I'm sorry," he said. "For everything."
Knowledge shook her head, but gave him a small smile. "That's better," she said, "-But it's not me you should be apologizing to. Happy is in the last place you'd think to look for her." She shoved Beast Boy out of her realm and locked the doors behind him. Frowning, Beast Boy got back on the dirt path as he had done so many times before and thought about what Raven's intelligent counterpart had told him. He was so deep in thought that he didn't even notice how the area around him had gone from a solid red color to Christmas colors.
Perhaps things would work out in the end after all...
A/N: Again, wicked short, I know. But due to writers block, I fear this is the best I can do right now, unless you wanted to wait another few months. Anyway, when you review feel free to drop in any suggestions or things you'd like to see added in. I ask this for two reasons: one, I'm kinda curious, and two, I might use it. So, review and let me know! Oh, and I ask that you be polite and nice about it. :)
