A/N: I don't know about anyone else's family but in my house on Thanksgiving we always have to say what we're thankful for before we can eat. I mean the turkey is less than a foot away and I have to wait for the whole table to finish speaking before I can eat it.
I blame Robin for this. It was his idea that we should all write out what we're thankful for. Like anyone really wanted to sit there and write down all the reasons they should feel grateful today. What do I have to feel thankful for anyway? I am the daughter of a half-demon, who can't express her emotions and has the power to destroy the world inside of her. Oh hold on a second Robin is calling.
Okay, so apparently Robin happened to catch a glance at what I was writing and decided to remind me of the assignment. At which point I decided to remind him of why he should never read my private thoughts. As far as I know he is still hanging from the ceiling fan. Now where was I? Oh yes what I'm thankful for. You know now that I think about it this Thanksgiving isn't that bad. Looking I around I can find some things to be thankful for.
I am thankful that this year the Gamestation is broken, thereby null and voiding any and all video game playing, as well as the shouting matches that ensue. I am grateful that Robin has decided that he will be in charge of desert this year, ensuring that we will not be subjected to any of Starfire's odd puddings again. Last year she concocted something purple and neon yellow filled with what looked like clods of dirt, it than proceeded to try and eat each and every one of us.
I am thankful that Cyborg has finally come clean about his after-hours activities with Jinx. At the moment she is watching the Macy's day parade with Star and Bumble Bee. I am also thankful that Bumble Bee wasn't all shaken about Cy and Jinx. She took the news quite well. Cyborg only earned himself a few dents and scratches. I am grateful that Aqualad and Speedy are in charge of the turkey. They are making one real meat turkey and one tofu turkey, making sure that everyone on the Tower will have a happy dinner.
I am thankful that Beast Boy has not once complained about the iniquity of the rest of us eating a turkey. In fact he has actually been really quite. I believe he has taken this assignment of Robin's very seriously. Good. That means that the silence will reign a little bit longer. I am also thankful that Cyborg was able to save Beast Boy from the family that tried to cook him for dinner. I did not relish the idea of looking at Beast Boy surrounded by carrots, stuffing, and mashed potatoes.
I am thankful for my friends. They have stood by me through a lot. Never once did they complain or make me feel as if I was to blame for everything that was happening. They were always there for me no matter what. They are my family and more than I could ever have wished for.
Well I think I have successfully completed this assignment. So while the rest of the team is pulling Robin off the fan, I am going to go get a cup of tea and a piece of pie. Maybe this year I'll sample the apple. Whoever taught Robin to cook did an excellent job. It's looking particularly appetizing right now.
A/N: So in the spirit of all the Thanksgiving joy, I decided to write a few little pieces about Thanksgiving in Titans Tower. Hope you enjoy them and for those of you who celebrate have a happy Thanksgiving. Remember the pie is your friend. The cookies and cake are your best friends.
