Chapter 11

Okay so I have my I guess you could say contest of whoever wants to come up with an idea for a truth or dare. You guys have come up with some really great ideas so if you want me to put your name if I choose you just let me know. Basically say your truth or dare and yes or no for submitting your name. (Also, if you've suggested an idea I've used just let me know which chapter and I'll put your name in). If anyone has truth or dare ideas just pm or put in a review. The rules are basic.
1. I try to mix up truths and dares, but not always alternate.
2. I won't use gltas people that were just used.(Ex: if order is aya razer kilowog razer I'll use razer or aya. Just not the person who just went or just went beforehand).
Okay enough of my babbling. On to the story!
Idea courtesy of Little Dark Sapphire


The Interceptor lifted off the planet and flew off through the atmosphere with little effort. Aya's eyes scanned the consoles, making sure all was in order. Kilowog and Razer checked their stations silently as Hal guided the ship up into the stars. Once the ship was adrift in space, Hal set it for autopilot, or rather Ayapilot, and leaned back in his chair, hands behind his head. "Hey, sunshine! Truth or dare?" The rest of the crew turned to look at him confused.

Aya chimed in first. "Green lantern Hal? Who are you addressing?"

"Razer, Aya. I'm talking to Razer." Hal looked over at the red lantern. "Truth or dare?"

Razer scowled. "Are we not through with this game yet?"

Hal grinned and shook his head. "Not even close."

Kilowog looked between the pair. "C'mon, red. The team has been gettin' along a lot better since we started playing. I'd never use it as a training technique, but as far as bonding and all it's really something."

Razer snorted and crossed his arms. The AI turned observing his body language. "Razer? If you are this adamant about continuing you need not continue your participation in it."

He looked over at her and sighed. Aya had on a disappointed expression. He couldn't stop yet. The red lantern silently tried to convince himself this was the last turn he was playing. He growled under his breath. "Dare..."

Hal grinned. "Aya? Can you access any Earth music databases?"

The small AI nodded. "I am able to access hundreds of databases and, consequently, millions of Earth songs. Why do you pose this query to me, green lantern Hal?"

"Aya? Can you access the lyrics to 'Angel with a Shotgun' by The Cab and display it on the main screen?"

Razer glared at the human. "What are you up to...?" His voice simply oozed mistrust.

Hal smirked at the Volkregian. "It's not a matter of what I'm up to. It's a matter of what you're going to be up to. Karaoke time, Razer! Aya? Will you do the honor?"

Aya nodded and tapped a button. Instantly, a projection filled the front of the ship and the words 'Angel with a Shotgun' showed up, followed by 'by The Cab' underneath it. Razer scowled. How he detested this game. Its efforts were fruitless and all it did was make them look like fools. Ilana had always teased him about his singing. It was lovingly that she teased him, but he knew that he was no good. For a moment, he debated trying to convince the green lantern to change his dare, but he quickly shot down the idea, knowing their buffoon of a leader wouldn't give up that easily. He also couldn't back out of the dare because he was afraid Aya would get upset. Granted, she didn't start bawling or pouting like most girls, but he'd see it in the slight downcast of her eyes and barely visible downward pull of her lips. Those things might not mean much to others or may go unnoticed, but he noticed everytime and to know he caused it broke his heart.

Hal smiled and winked at Kilowog. The sergeant gave him a thumbs up while the other two were turned away. The two men may not be the greatest match makers, but they seemed pretty competent of pushing these two together. Hal smiled and created a green microphone stand for Razer. "Stage is all yours."

The red lantern glared and created a red saw that sliced the stand in half. He had seen enough to know what to create and created a red microphone for his hand, refusing to use a green construct and added a small spiked ball protruding from the bottom of the mic. "Let's get this over with..." He grumbled angrily as he saw the title fade from the screen. He took a deep breath and began to grumble out the opening lines as he heard the alien instruments play along. "I'm an angel with a shotgun...shotgun...shotgun... An angel with a shotgun...shotgun...shotgun..."

Hal Raised his eyebrows in surprise. He had expected Razer to put up a harder fight, but he never would have guessed in a million years Razer would have actually started singing!

Razer blinked in surprise and turned to Aya as he sang the next lines. "Well, baby, you are all that I adore, if love is what you need than a soldier I will be..."

Aya felt surprise at Razer's intensity. He was still singing softly and reluctantly, but his eyes seemed to burn as he stared at her, singing and Aya could tell he wasn't just singing. He was singing to her...

"Don't you know you're everything I have? And I wanna live, not just survive, tonight." Razer had rather enjoyed singing the chorus. It was fast yet not too fast where one couldn't enjoy the lyrics. He had especially enjoyed the look of surprise and delight as Aya had stared back as he sang to her. This was actually somewhat enjoyable.

"Sometimes to win, you've got to sin, don't mean I'm not a believer..." Kilowog watched Razer sing. Who knew red had a voice? He figured the red lantern would go storming off, but he had started singing. Not only that, but he had gone from a grumbling mutter to a decently loud singing voice. This was a huge surprise. "They say before you start a war you better know what you're fighting for." Kilowog leaned back in his chair. That line had really hit home for him. The guardians with their mysteries sending the lanterns he'd trained out to get slaughtered.

As Kilowog and Hal remained lost in thought, Razer turned back to Aya. "I'm an angel with a shotgun, fighting till the war's won, I don't care if heaven won't take me back..." Aya wondered if she had a heart if it'd be racing right now. She felt her circuits sparking and misfiring. The boys all looked in surprise as the screen stuttered fizzing in and out. They all waited for the screen to stabilize. Aya was alarmed that they'd realize why she couldn't focus on driving the ship and maintaining the game.

"Oooooohhhh oooohhhhh..." All three heads turned to Aya as she sang the next lines. "I'm an angel with a shotgun..."

Razer stared at her then joined her and the two walked to each other singing. Kilowog and Hal watched as they sang together. Aya echoing or backup singing and Razer continuing through. They were staring at each other intently as they began to finish the song.

"They say before you start a war..." Aya was standing in front of Razer, hands clasped to her chest. "You better know what you're fighting for..."

"Well, baby, you are all that I adore..." Razer stared down at her and grazed her cheek with the back of his free hand. "If love is what you need, a soldier I will be..." The screen went dark and disappeared and the couple continued to stare at each other intently. Razer stared at her and leaned in closer.

Aya's voice made him pause before he could kiss her. "That was a beautiful song..."

Hal grinned. "I knew you'd like it, Aya..." He turned to Razer. "Did you like it, Razer?"

Razer's face reddened and he went over to his station, plopping down heavily, and crossed his arms, sulking. Those darn green lanterns...he almost got to steal another kiss from Aya...

Hal and Kilowog smirked at each other and each raised a thumbs up.

Razer began to type on his console, but as the screen turned on he caught a flash of words. The screen read 'You are all that I adore...' He looked at Aya in surprise and she turned slightly to look at him, a playful smile on her lips. "Is something wrong, Razer?"

He smiled. "No..." He turned back to his console and looked down at his ring. Everything was fine because he knew exactly what he was fighting for.


Sorry it's such a short chapter. I think it's really cute though and I hope you do too. I don't own the song, just the right to find it beautiful and amazing.:3 Please review and post ideas! I'm hoping for a truth next time, preferably Hal, but Aya would work too.
