Author's note: I'm back, with an all-new fanfic! This is just a silly little idea that's been hanging around in the deep recesses of my brain, waiting to pounce. If you are anti-BB/Rae, you might still be able to enjoy this. I'll explain later.
Disclaimer: I do not own Teen Titans. If I did, I wouldn't have to write boring disclaimers like this one.
It was a normal day in Titan's Tower. Well, not exactly. It was Valentine's Day, and love was in the air. So were oxygen, nitrogen and carbon dioxide, but that's irrelevant. What is relevant is that none of this love was being openly expressed. Confused? Don't worry, all will be clear in five, four, three, two…
"I can't believe Robin and Starfire." Said Cyborg.
"I mean," He continued, "It's obvious that they like each other, but at this rate they'll never admit it!"
"Tell me about it." Beast Boy sighed. "They need to be hit by Cupid's arrow."
"Yeah." The mechanical teen said. "You know…" He suddenly paused. "BB! Say that again!"
"That again." The green boy said.
"No, the other thing." Said Cy, annoyed.
"No, the other thing." BB repeated.
"Never mind!" Yelled Cyborg. "I've got an idea."
"Never mind!" Beast Boy shouted. "I've got an idea."
Cyborg dialed his communicator-thingy. Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi's unmistakable tune played, and Speedy's face appeared on the screen.
"Hey, Cy!" The archer exclaimed. "Long time no see!"
"Hi Speedy." Cyborg said. "Listen, I need your help."
"Does Beast Boy need to borrow more of my ointment for his rash?" Speedy inquired hesitantly.
"No, it's nothing like that!" Cyborg said quickly. "It's just that, you have all those different arrows and I was wondering if you have any with, uh… Some sort of love potion in them?"
Speedy gave Cyborg a weird look.
"It's for Rob and Star!" The metal man quickly added.
"Well, why didn't you say so?" The redhead said. "I'm sending a pair over. They get there right about… Now."
Suddenly, there was a knock at the door. Beast Boy opened it to reveal Mas y Menos standing outside, holding a box. Beast Boy took it, thanked them, and brought it over to Cyborg.
"These arrows," Speedy said as Cyborg opened the box, "Contain a chemical that is similar to the love pheromones fond in all creatures. I call it 'infatuation concoction digit-code 3 to the power of 2.'"
Beast Boy reached inside of the box and took out two arrows with heart-shaped tips.
"Since Starfire and Robin already like each other," Speedy continued, "I only put one-half of a dose in each arrow. That way, all you have to do is hit both of them and the chemicals will give them enough of a jolt to make them more open with their feelings. Just remember, they have to be looking at each other for it to work."
"I don't think that will be a problem." Cyborg said. "Thanks for the help Speedy."
"Don't mention it." The Robin look-alike replied. "And Beast Boy, if that rash acts up again, you know how to…"
"Okay, bye!" Beast Boy said quickly as he shut the communicator off.
"Hey, Star." Robin said. "Want to go on a walk into town?"
"I shall accept your proposal of walking in the traditional Tamaranian fashion." Starfire replied cheerfully. She then pulled her arm back and punched Robin in the head.
"Gah!" Robin exclaimed as he lost several brain cells.
"No, friend Robin! To accept my acceptance, you have to block the punch." Starfire corrected. "Let's try again."
"Wha?" Robin mumbled, still dazed by the first hit. Again, the young alien's fist collided with his cranium.
"Just look at 'em." Beast Boy said as he watched the pair from nearby. "They're totally oblivious to each other's affection. Have you ever seen a more awkward crush?"
"I dunno." Cyborg replied. "My cousin Trixie knows a guy who once had a crush on a ski lift."
There was a brief and awkward pause.
"Really?" The shape-shifter asked.
"Yep." The bionic boy replied.
"Well, anyway…" Beast Boy continued. "Rob and Star's problems are about to end. Do you have the arrows ready?"
"Sure thing." Cyborg answered, holding up the arrows and the bow that came with them but had not been mentioned before.
"Perfect." Beast Boy said, rubbing his hands together. "We'd better hurry, it looks like Robin could block that punch any minute now."
Just as he said that, Robin held out his hand, keeping Starfire's fist from colliding with his skull and probably relieving him of the ability to tie his shoes.
"Glorious!" Exclaimed Star. "Now we may depart for our walk of… Walking-ness." She took the dazed boy wonder's hand and turned to go out the door.
Cyborg fitted the arrows onto the bow and aimed them at the two teens.
"Ready…" Beast Boy said. "Aim…"
"What are you two doing?" Raven asked, materializing out of nowhere.
Cyborg, surprised, let go of the bow's string. The two arrows ricocheted off of the walls and ceiling, finally embedding themselves into…
…A certain shape-shifter's hindquarters.
Cyborg suddenly remembered something about the chemicals making the victim fall in love with the first person he sees. He also realized that BB had been hit with both arrows, and therefore got a full dose of the stuff.
"Well, just look at the time!" The half-robot said, glancing at his non-existent watch. "Gotta go!" He then ran out of the tower.
"Come back here!" A confused Raven shouted. "What's going on?"
Beast Boy's eyes snapped open.
A/N: Cliffhanger! Dun, dun, dun! Review, but don't flame. It will be a while before the next chappie is up, so don't think I've abandoned you when a week or two goes by without an update.
