Author has written 16 stories for Teen Titans, Dragon Ball Z, and Hitman.
My fanfiction name is Teen Tyrant. The name comes from a combination of two of my favorite franchises: Teen Titans and Resident Evil. The Teen part is easy to understand. The Tyrant part comes from the boss monsters called Tyrants, which appear in almost every Resident Evil game; my favorite game monsters. Replace Titans with Tyrant and bingo; Teen Tyrant!
I am a 27-year-old guy. I am married to fellow fanfiction. net author Miss Starfire. I haven't really had anything unique happen to me in my life, at least not yet. I have no children, no pets, although again, not yet.
I'm a believer in Christianity, but unlike many religious people I have complete respect for all other religions and faiths, because I am willing to admit that mine could be wrong. Indeed, the only spiritual view that I cannot respect or tolerate is a lack of one, which is to say Atheism. Being Agnostic and just choosing to not dwell on the issue one way or the other is one thing, but to blatantly state that there is no God or superior intelligent force that at the very least is responsible for getting the universe started and letting it go on its merry way? I'm sorry, but there is simply no more idiotic idea in the history of humankind than the idea that the world as we experience it with our limited and unreliable senses, in all its cause/effect, obeying-the-laws-of-physics glory, is all there is. Even if there is no afterlife or anything like that, it is simply impossible for the universe to exist as it does in all its complexity and near-clockwork perfection without Something wanting it to be that way. Something or Someone wrote the laws of physics that the universe follows, and I see it as a form of extreme denial on the part of Atheists to state that this life as we see it is all there is. Beyond that, I don't care Who or What your faith follows, as long as you believe in something beyond this limited, disappointing physical world.

Favorite Teen Titans character: Starfire; Perfect in every way. Second is Robin; he's cooler than the other guys, but mainly he's my second favorite because he's paired with Starfire, which is all the reason I need to give him second place. Third is Beast Boy; hilarious! Fourth is Raven; not quite as beautiful as Starfire and not quite as funny as Beast Boy, but close enough for the fourth slot. Last is Cyborg; not as funny as Beast Boy and Raven, but still quite humorous. I like all the other characters of the show, except Monsieur Mallah. All of them are lower on my list than the original five Titans, however.
My favorite kind of fanfiction is romance. Here are the couples who are okay and the ones who are not okay in fanfiction:
Robin and Starfire- Perfect in every way
Beast Boy and Raven- Perfect in every way
Cyborg and Bumblebee- Okay
Beast Boy and Terra- Okay
Robin and Raven- Die painfully and go to hell!
Cyborg and Jinx- Okay
Raven and Cyborg- Okay
Cyborg and Starfire- Bad
Beast Boy and Starfire- Forgivable, depending on how you do it, it can be funny at times
Robin and Terra- Bad
In regards to Starfire-haters, I think Vandagirl said it best on the Robin and Starfire Shrine:
"Then there's the Starfire hate...
Well, here's my response to all of those...
She took the words right out of my mouth.
I can usually pardon RobinandRavenism as long as there is no anti-Starfire message going along with it. If the story portrays Starfire as the ditzy slut that the Starfire-haters wrongly believe she is, then I'm going to make your life miserable. If it involves Robin leaving Starfire in order to be with Raven, even if it is a consensual thing, well, then I won't make your life quite as much of a hell, but you will be hearing from me. If your story has it so that Robin and Starfire never had an interest in each other and are simply friends, then it is acceptable and I will not bother you about it. Much.
Starfire, in terms of a relationship with Robin, is superior to Raven in every conceivable way. She is everything that he needs, she is a lot smarter than she appears, she is more beautiful, stronger and more powerful than Raven (not that this should be a means to judge), and its painfully obvious that she and Robin are in love with each other.
Now, because of season 4, many Raven fans have built up this whole theory that Robin is starting to like Raven in that way. Wake up. The only reason you think that is because Robin was the one who rescued her and because of the hug. Well, as far as rescuing her goes, that only happened because he was the only one who could have done it. If any of the other Titans had saved her, would you be thinking that they were in love with Raven? As for the hug, um, she hugged Beast Boy like that too. And Robin has hugged Starfire in a much more tender way. That was a thank-you-for-being-the-friend-I-needed kind of hug. There was no romantic involvement whatsoever. The scene immediately following that had Raven appearing to flirt with Beast Boy in a hard-to-get manner, and Beast Boy being not quite as subtle about it, so why are you not looking to that, hmm? But there was no chemistry between her and Robin. Raven's relationship with Robin is more like that of a brother and sister, and no matter what you try to make of it, that's all it will ever be.
This is something RobRae5000 and raerobgal say and believe, and they are both full of bullshit for actually thinking this, and so is any other Rob/Rae fan out there: "Teen Titans: Robin and Starfire. They just seem like two different species. The idea of this pairing is as wrong to me as a dog and a parrot getting together. I know that none of the titans are of the same species, but none of them are as different as those two. Opposites attract, but they are not opposites, they are just really different."
That is the biggest load of bullshit I've ever heard to describe Rob/Star. Not only is it not true that they shouldn't be together, but they are by no means the most different of the Titans, and RobRae 5000 and raerobgirl are both smoking crack. Rob/Rae fans, you need to realize something: you are stupid. Your pairing is stupid. And you all need to just shut the fuck up. It's over. It was over before it ever started. You lost. Rob/Star was always, ALWAYS, meant to be, and your opinion on it doesn't mean diddly dick. Rob/Rae, on the other hand, never had a snowflake's chance in hell. It's one thing to like the idea of Robin and Raven getting together for a little while because you like both characters and would just like to see them do a little of the romance thing every once in a while. But the idea of replacing Rob/Star with it, or believing that it is better than Rob/Star, or just hating it because you hate Starfire, is as wrong as believing the Earth is flat, and you need to get it through your head that you're full of shit. The only thing more unforgivable than Rob/Raeism are the pairings I mention in the paragraph right below this one. Rob/Rae fans, shut up. After ten years of your bullshit, I've had it. Just shut the fuck up.
In regards to other fanfiction romance, mainly DragonBall Z-GT, I am a supporter of Trunks/Marron because they are perfect in every way and I support Goten/anybody-but-Bra-or-Marron. I absolutely refuse to tolerate Trunks/Pan or Goten/Bra. Trunks/Pan and Goten/Bra shippers are the greatest offense that has ever existed. There is nothing, and I mean absolutelyNOTHING on this Earth that I hate more than these pairings and the people who advocate and support them and I will flame you into the next life if I find out you support either one. No exceptions, no mercy.
Controversy, arguments, fandom wars.. so much fun, you gotta love 'em!
My fanfiction works: These will all be either Rob/Star, BB/Rae, BB/Terra, Cy/Bee, Rob/Rae (under very specific conditions), BB/Star (also under very specific conditions) or Raven/Original Character.
The Robin and Starfire fics will all be serious with happy endings.
The Beast Boy and Raven stories will almost never be true romance stories. I like my BB/Rae tales to be implied. I like to give the indication that they like each other but then either reveal that they don't really, have only one of them like the other, or end the story with the indication that while they don't like each other now, they might eventually. I probably won't have them actually getting together for real very often, as that seems too much of a convenient happy ending for them. I like to let the reader decide how it will turn out.
Beast Boy and Terra and Cyborg and Bumblebee tales will be woven in with the Rob/Star and Rae/OC tales, so they will be background romances that will always be happy to the end.
Robin and Raven stories by me will be gifts to the Robin/Raven Romance Community for putting up with my dislike for them. Any stories about them beyond that will involve them having a one-time-only romantic moment that will last only a few seconds, and then they go back to their real love interests. As you can see, I will never have them be truely happy together, because they don't belong together.
Beast Boy and Starfire stories can be made to be extremely cute if done right. I will probably have them end up kissing in the dark by accident or something every time I write about them. It will always be funny, unintentional and will never last. Pure entertainment with these.
Raven and Original Character pairings will be very rare; I only have one example right now. Any original character I put her with will usually be loosely based on myself. While I'd rather put a character version of myself with Starfire, that goes against the Rob/Star fan in me. So I will go with my other favorite Titan girl, Raven.
Completed and in-progress:
The Last Candy- My first Teen Titans fanfic and a Rob/Star romance story without mush, I consider it my greatest success in terms of public reaction. I returned to it every year on Valentine's Day to update a new chapter and even brought some BB/Rae into it, and the praise has been strong. It is now complete, however I have considered a possible sequel based around a different holiday.
Romance On April Fools' Day- This is considered by many to be my most humorous fic. It was not meant to be as funny as I have been told that it is, so I was quite shocked at how well it was met by the public. I am very proud of it for this.
Look At You Girl- My first songfic, it is my second Rob/Star fic that I've completed. In terms of public reaction, I consider it average. The people who read it liked it, but I didn't get as many reviews as I had hoped. I don't know, maybe my romance writing skills sucked since I'd never had a romance myself at the time it was written. Still, I'm proud of how I was able to pull this one off for a first songfic attempt.
Accidental Shower Exposure- The counterpart to Look At You Girl, this is my second Beast Boy/Raven fic. Again, it is not a serious romance story, but gives the indication that it might become one. A bit more success than Look At You Girl.
All the Lies You Want to Hear- The Beast Boy/Raven fic I'm most proud of. Based off of a Star Trek: DS9 episode, I like to think that I pulled it off pretty well. I expected more public reaction to it though.
Robin and Raven, in 10 seconds- Originally just a means to piss off the Rob/Rae fans and the Starfire-haters, this got a surprising number of good reviews. Only a few lines long, it is considered by many to be funny in how short and pointless it is. I erased the original copy, which involved a heated I-hate-Rob/Rae-fans rant at the beginning. I have put it up again without the rant for the purpose of giving a few laughs.
Beast Boy and Starfire, in 10 seconds- Almost exactly identical to Robin and Raven, in 10 seconds, this story is just funny. No need to say more.
Robin and Raven, the real deal- My genuine attempt at a Robin/Raven romance story, I'm proud of how well I did it and how many positive reviews I got from it. It is definitive proof that even a hardcore Rob/Star fan can have just a little bit of Rob/Rae in them to share, as long as its not serious.
Final Destination- My combination of Teen Titans romance and horror, based off of the coolest horror series of the 2000s, the Final Destination movies. People seem interested in it, and while there is romance between BB/Rae and Rob/Star, it is mostly about the Titans all being dispatched by Death Itself throughout the story. And I assure you, all the deaths are gruesome, bwahahahaha... ah forget it. This story was my first success in terms of public reaction, being my first story to go over 30 reviews.
Alternate Endings To Rob/Star Dedicated Episodes- This story takes five episodes that had decent scenes with Robin and Starfire that would have been perfect opportunities to crank up the romance factor. I have either altered or extended the endings of each of these episodes to give us Rob/Star fans what we wanted to see, with an episode that is familiar. All of them are independent of one another, so the reader can choose which one would have made a better episode. Out of all my pure Robin/Starfire fics so far, this one is my most popular.
Element and the Gamer- my second Teen Titans fic, this thing took two and a half years to complete and I had a lot of fun with the two new Titans I created. It is Rob/Star/OC triangle, BB/Terra, Raven/OC, Cy/Bee and even Blackfire/OC. I intend to write two sequels to it someday, making it a trilogy.
Biohazard: Teen Titans vs. Umbrella- Originally this was going to be a huge Teen Titans/Resident Evil crossover. I've decided instead to shorten it considerably from its original concept and make it based more in the Teen Titans mythology than the Resident Evil mythology. Right now it is on hiatus until I can finish some other projects, but I will get back to it someday. Fortunately, not a lot of people really seemed to catch it at the time, so hopefully I'm not disappointing a lot of folks with the delay.
The Blackout Deception- This is the second oldest fic idea I've had since becoming a Teen Titans fan. It is currently on hiatus as I finish other projects, but I believe that this one will be well received once I get back to it. It is a one-sided Beast Boy/Starfire story that will be pretty intense with the level of angst, so those who love that will probably enjoy this story once it progresses.
The Coolest Thing To Happen- The Teen Titans/DragonBall Z crossover- This is the oldest fic idea I've had since becoming a Teen Titans fan and is the fic I'm most anxious about and obsessed with. Basically, Starfire becomes stranded in the universe of DragonBall Z and must live there for a two-week period, spending time with the Z children, Trunks, Goten and Marron, while waiting for her chance to go back to her world. Between these scenes, the reader is taken back in time four months before these events, when Starfire met these kids for the first time, and they helped her and the other Titans battle Frieza and Slade in the Teen Titans' home dimension. The main issue of this story, other than the conflict mentioned above, is one of the Z children trying to cope with the feelings they have developed for a certain Titan. I won't give it away here, so you'll have to read the story to the first interlude to find out who it is. This is my most ambitious project, and I'm not sure what the future holds for my Teen Titans fiction once I'm done with it.
Starfire's Little Game- A story I wrote just for fun after seeing an awesome picture on deviantart. Starfire enlists Raven's help to tie her up as a surprise game for Robin, but there's an unexpected problem. This is my first adult-type story, as I make no attempt to hide sexual themes in it.
I would like to invite everybody who reads this to come and join the Robin and Starfire Shrine, which went down two years ago but is now back up in anticipation of the return of Teen Titans next year. Although it is dedicated to the pairing of Robin and Starfire, it is also for general Teen Titans talk and even talk outside of that. Even if you don't support Rob/Star, you are still welcome to join.
So everybody stop by at http://www.robinandstarfire.net/forum/index.php and enjoy the fun!
