A/N: I'm using the 100 prompts list. The other one-shots won't be in order. Enjoy!


Speedy rubbed his aching jaw. He didn't think that that Bumblebitch chick could punch so hard. Well, sure, that comment he'd made about her butt being nice was probably a bad way to introduce himself to his new teammate, but still.

He turned his attention to the two Hispanic twins zipping this way and that through the bare beginnings of the new Titans East tower with mild annoyance. So far, this new team consisted of a girl who seemed to be constantly PMS-ing, hyperactive twin babies who could only speak Spanish, and himself. Joy. He could only imagine what gem of a personality would complete the group as its fifth member.

As if someone out there had been listening to his thoughts, the doors opened with a mechanical hiss and in stepped the last person he expected to see.


The last time he'd seen the aquatic hero, he'd frozen him in a block of ice. As the other boy introduced himself to each individual member of the team, Speedy idly wondered if there would be any lingering animosity between the two of them.

"Speedy," he introduced, extending his hand.

"Ah, yes, Mr. Cheap Shot. I remember you," Aqualad said teasingly as he gripped Speedy's hand with a little more force than necessary.

Speedy quirked an eyebrow. Yep, there was definitely some lingering animosity in there. Well, two could play that game, "it's good to see you again, Fish-stick," he replied with a smirk as they shook hands.

And so it began. The fights. The insults about hair, fish rights activism, and the like. The placement of dead goldfish in conspicuous places. The replacement of shampoo and clothing with black hair dye and an entire closet full of replicas of Robin's uniform.

All of it started with a simple handshake.

A/N: Short 'n' Sweet. I hope you liked it, baybays!
