Author's Note: A challenge based from a challenge done both by H.Moth and BlackShield on a LJ community that challenges writers to come up with fifty one-sentence drabbles based from a pre-determined word set for a single pairing.
I thought I'd try my hand here and in the Teen Titans animated fandom. I chose the Gamma set. PM me for the LJ address since this site doesn't do hyperlinks.
