Chapter 5 - Finding the Center

"Rose!" Starfire squealed, almost sending the other Titans reeling back from the force of her voice. She flew over to the girl and gathered her into a bear hug. "It has been such a long time since we have seen you. It is most glorious that you have joined us today!"

"Star..." Rose's eyes began to well up with tears. "You're...choking me..."

"Eep!" The Tamaranian let her go quickly. "I am sorry, friend Rose! Have any of your internal organs been damaged?"

Rose's body throbbed in pain. "Not...all of them..."

Red Star turned to Cyborg. "I was not aware of anyone named Rose in the Titans. Did I miss something?"

"While you were back in Russia, we had a string of incidents involving an old nemesis of ours. We thought it was him, but it turned out to be his daughter, Rose," Cyborg explained. "We managed to corner her, but it turns out she was under the impression she needed to continue his work. We were able to convince her otherwise."

"Yeah, but she left a couple days after agreeing to come with us," Beast Boy added. "I wonder where she's been."

Rose walked down the stairs, still slightly wincing from Starfire's hug. "Hey guys. Long time no see."

Robin hopped down to the floor to meet with his team. "Ravager's been training with The Master for the past week, at my request. I thought that it would be better that anything we have here, especially since we didn't actually have a training room for a while."

"Hey!" Beast Boy exclaimed. "Weight training as an octopus does make me eight times stronger!"

Raven rolled her eyes. "It also makes you eight times dumber."

"Anyways," Robin interjected, "I figured this would be a good opportunity for Ravager to get her feet wet and see if all of her training has paid off."

"But Robin," Starfire said as she peered down at the white-haired girl's steel-toed boots, "her feet do not appear to have any water on them."

"It's...a figure of speech, Star."

"Oh, that is right!" Starfire stood back up, beaming. "I now remember that from the book Cyborg gave me for Christmas! Foiling Your Fickle Friends: One Thousand and One Figures of Speech!" She could imagine herself toiling with the book in her room as the customs of Earth were-

"Uhhh, Star."

Her inner thoughts burst as she was brought back to reality. "Yes, Robin?"

"You can go back to reading your book later. We have a mission to do."

"Yes, it's time to get going, mates," Argent added. "They're going to move the materials soon, from the sounds of it."

"Cyborg, you guys take the T-Car. Star, Raven, Argent, and Red Star can fly. Ravager, you're with me." Robin pressed a button on his communicator. "I've uploaded your coordinates to all of your comms."

He made his way to the main doorway and waved his hands dramatically.

"Ladies and gentlemen...our mission awaits."


"You know, I've only ridden on a motorcycle once before."

"Yeah? When?"

"There was a gang."

Robin peaked his head around to look at his passenger.

"...It was a thing."

"Mmhmm."

Not wanting to press the issue further, Robin turned his attention back toward the road. They had left the Tower a few minutes before, heading out on his R-Cycle. Behind him was Ravager, grasping him around the waist.

"You don't seem very comfortable on motorcycles, though."

"Well, it wasn't exactly the best of circumstances."

"What happened? Did a giant pack of robots on mechanical bears chase you across three states?"

Ravager shook her head. "No, that's just stupid."

Robin winced, sad that his joke was denied.

"It was four states, and it was an elephant."

"Wha-"


"Red Star, I have had a question for you ever since our meeting in the land of Russia."

"And what is this question you have, Starfire?"

"Beast Boy has told me that in the old Russia, certain things can be done to us as opposed to the opposite. Is this kind of occurrence commonplace?"

"...I believe Beast Boy needs to stop paying attention to the Internet so much."


A few minutes later, The Boy Wonder pulled up to the edge of a cliff, just overhanging the target location. Ravager uneasily got off the cycle, shaking her head.

"At least there wasn't a maniac robot elephant this time," she muttered.

Robin pulled out his communicator. "Status report, Titans."

He heard the whooshing of the air that was always synonymous with Starfire. "Robin, I have arrived at the location."

"So have we," Raven said over the frequency.

"Ditto for us," Cyborg confirmed.

"Good." Robin kicked his stand down on his cycle. "From this point on, we maintain radio silence. Do not report back in until either a half hour has passed, or you have secured the packages, whichever comes later. That should give us plenty of time to do our mission. Over and out."

"So, let me get this straight," Ravager started as Robin made his way down the hill. "You brought me all the way out here because you saw my father on a video moving a bunch of rocks."

"Uh huh."

"And what's so special about these rocks again?"

"Cyborg says their elemental breakdown seems to enhance technology to its peak, and then some." Robin hopped up to a nearby branch to gaze down on the warehouse. "Imagine if Red X got a hold of that."

"Who?"

He winced. "Oh yeah, you don't know him. Imagine if Brother Blood-"

"Still don't know him."

"Atlas? Adonis? Control Freak?"

"Nope, nada, and...wait, what kind of name is that?"

"...Looks like we'll have to teach you about the kind of villains we deal with."


"Sooo...how's everyone doin'?"

"Beast Boy, Robin said to shut up."

"I'm pretty sure he didn't put it like that. It's boring here, anyways."

Raven sighed as Argent giggled behind her. "It's infiltration. It's suppose to be boring."

"Can't do anything anyway until Cy opens the door. Isn't that right, Cy?"

Raven heard the slap of metal over the comm, as well as the sound of a blowtorch whooshing past the speaker. "Dude, trying to concentrate here!"

"Gnaark!"

She let out an aggravated growl. "Whatever. I'm turning you two off now."

Argent flew a little farther ahead as Raven ceased her conversation. "So, you and Beast Boy..."

"Me and Beast Boy what?"

"Oh, come off it, love," the gold teased. "Don't tell me that you two aren't anything."

"Pretty sure I'm telling you now."

Raven and Argent glided down to the roof of the warehouse, where Raven was easily able to make a passageway through the material. Once inside, they began to look around for their target.

"This Slade character...I was listening to Robin at the Tower talk about him," Argent whispered. "Sounds like a terrible guy."

"He brainwashed Robin into his apprentice, made me into a puppet to summon my demon father, and that's not even counting the countless other things he did to this city," Raven monotoned. "Minerals with technology-enhancing capabilities? Azar knows what he's up to with that."

"Raven, I think I found something."

She hovered over to Argent, who pointed over to the far corner of the building. She shined some purple light in that direction, illuminating over some iron crated with a faint green glow coming from the cracks.

"That's it. Are you ready to take this stuff-"

A shadow dashed through the light, the being that caused it almost knocking Raven into the wall.

"Raven!"

The spell caster regained her balance, lowering herself onto the floor. "I'm fine," she snapped as she waved her light around the premise. "What in the world was that?"

She wildly turned, finally spotting something in the back corner. She shined some magic in its direction...and saw a robot, with metal claws, a black jumpsuit, and a orange circle on his mask.

"Oh crap."

Several of the boxes around them erupted into splinters as more of the Sladebots came into view. Raven and Argent quickly found themselves back to back and surrounded.

"What the heck are these things?" Argent yelled.

"Something I thought I wouldn't have to see for a long while." Raven held her hand down to the floor. "I'm porting us out of here. We need to warn the others."

Even before she started her mental incantation, a giant symbol appeared beneath their feet, nullifying the spell.

"An anti-teleportation rune."

WHAM!

Both of the girls looked up to see the windows in the ceiling were now covered by solid steel, all adorned with the same symbol.

"Let me guess," Argent said uneasily, watching the robots circle them. "Warehouses aren't suppose to have retractable metal covers with magic-repelling capabilities?"

"I'm going to go with a no on that." Raven pressed the brooch on her cloak. "Robin, this is Raven. We have a situation-"

The loud crackle of static interrupted her plea.

"Dammit!" Raven cursed. "Radio's blocked. Probably some sort of scrambler in the building."

"Well, Raven," Argent said, powering up her fists with red energy, "Looks like there's only one way out of this."

"Yeah." She straightened up as her eyes glowed white. "Hope Slade didn't need any of these robots back."

Argent summoned an energy fist and pulled it back. "If it will help, just imagine it's Beast Boy's head."

"Way ahead of you." Raven materialized a claw, sending it towards the nearest Sladebot.


"OW!"

"Beast Boy, what did you run into now?"

"Nothing." He held his head to his hand. "It feels like something just came out of nowhere."

Kole walked up behind him, levitating a crystal in her open palm. "Perhaps you need some medicine. Maybe we could find some in these boxes."

"I think I would rather eat Cyborg's meat dishes than eat crate medicine."

"And yet both would probably make you feel better!"

"Gnaark!"

All three heads turned to their fourth companion, who was standing on what appeared to be a steel crate, with a faint green glow coming out from it.

"Wow. I wonder how the workers totally missed this when they were unpacking the cargo."

"Slade probably made them look the other way," Cyborg replied as he surveyed the box. "Or just brought it in when nobody was looking. Doesn't matter either way." He waved over to Gnaark. "Hey, want to give me a hand with this?"

Before he could even step forward, the overhead windows slammed shit with a loud clang.

"Gnarrk?"

"No idea, buddy," Cyborg replied, narrowing his one human eye. "But I have a funny feeling that Slade knew we were coming."

"Was it that..."

Cyborg turned to see his best friend madly waving his hands and the hundreds of Slade-bots that had appeared out of nowhere.

"OR WAS IT THE GIANT ROBOT ARMY?"

The four teens backed up into a huddle as the robots began to close around him. Beast Boy quickly turned into a bear, Kole made two spears out of crystal, and Gnarrk cracked his fists together.

"I'm hankering for a good fight anyway." Cyborg held up his hand, cannon at the ready. "Titans, let's rock!"


A giant red beam shot across the room, destroying several Sladebots in the process.

"Red Star, I do not think you know your own strength."

"That is part of fun, is it not?"

Starfire smiled as she threw another starbolt out at a crowd of robots. "Do you ever have the feeling that our friends are getting more of the exposition than the both of us?"

"Affirmative."

Before Starfire could come to her next wall-breaking epiphany, she was tackled by a Sladebot.

"Ahh!"

Several more robots slammed onto her, causing a huge pile of metal and electricity.

"Starfire!" Red Star began to fly over to assist, but was cut off by several sudden laser blasts.

Underneath the pile, the Tamaranian was straining under the weight of the adversaries on her. "No..."

Her eyes began to glow green.

With all of her strength, she threw out her hands, the energy throwing back the robots into the walls, destroying all of them in the process. She fell down to one knee as Red Star hovered down to her.

"Are you OK, Starfire?"

"Grrr..."

He looked at her face to see the alien teen growling, steam pouring out of her ears and her hands balled into fists.

"That is it!" Starfire flew up, her anger clearly evident. "I am not the nice girl anymore!"

Red Star watched as she flew off, throwing starbolts willy-nilly around the battle area. He sighed inwardly.

"I must remind myself never to make that girl mad."


Two pairs of metal boots clanged onto the roof of the warehouse. The shadows opened up a spare window and repelled down to the ground below. The shorter one grabbed a glowstick from his utility belt, shaking it slightly before the pale yellow light started to illuminate the room.

"I don't like this."

Robin turned to his teammate. "If it's any consolation, neither do I. But we need to get this stuff out of here before Slade suspects anything is happening."

"And what if he does already?"

"You know something I don't?"

Ravager continued to scan her surroundings, looking for their cargo. "If I know one thing about my father, it's that he prepares for everything. We're going to have our hands full with them."

"Let me ask you something, Rose." Robin took a second glowstick and handed it to Ravager. "What is it like being with the most dangerous man to Jump City?"

"I wouldn't know. I haven't seen him in ten years."

Robin momentarily forgot they were on a mission where they needed to keep quiet. "What!?"

"Yeah." Her eyes narrowed, her memories coming back to her. "He left me and my mother alone when I was young. Before that, he was always teaching me about legacy and family and how each was important to produce your own identity on the world."

"Sounds like the father of the year."

"He had me train at a very young age to someday take over for him. That's why I was in Jump City when you guys caught up with me."

She felt his hand on her shoulder.

"Rose, you're not that person anymore. You don't have to be anyone's successor. You can make your own life."

"Robin..."

For one fleeting moment, she had the sudden urge to turn around and kiss him. It was so touching...

If not for the nearby boxes suddenly exploding.

"Ahh!"

The Sladebots landed from their surprise attack, their claws glimmering in the moonlight. Rose slowly got up from the floor and unsheathed her two swords.

"Are you going to be OK?" Robin asked, his bo stick extended to its maximum length. "Remember, The Master told me that rage is an emotion that-"

"I don't freakin' care." Rose brought her swords forward, her anger rising. "I'm mad, and I'm not going to take it lying down."

Robin smiled. "You wanna make this a contest?" He brought back one of his Birdarangs, ready to throw it.

"It won't be a contest..."

Rose smirked at the nearest Sladebot, her opponent unaware of the pain that was going to follow.

"It's going to be a slaughter."

AUTHOR'S NOTE: The dreaded "way-too-long" chapter strikes again.

Remember long ago when I was splitting up chapters left and right back during my Christmas Phineas and Ferb fic? No? Well, I don't blame you for not knowing; it was almost three years ago.

Four?

Two?

Man, even I don't remember.

Anyhoots, the next chapter is at least going to give me a chance to work on my fight scene skills. I might not include Starfire and Red Star (otherwise known as their team name StarStar) because they seem a little preoccupied right now.

...Seriously, I'm going to try to work on the next chapter and upload it by Tuesday. It will be shorter than this one, I swear.

One final thing: having Ravager's comic history was not really going to work here, so it's being modified. She's not going to be a pawn of Slade's half brother because...well, it's hard when he doesn't exist in the TT universe.

Then again, neither does Ravager (show-wise).

Hey, liberties.

Read and review, if you like. Until next time, everyone.

Loading...
Contemplating the meaning of life...and also what exactly I'm going to say next week.

>.<

If anything.

Chapter 4 - Bring Forth the North

As Robin and Starfire made their way back into the common room, Cyborg finished punching a few commands into the computer and waved the couple over.

"Yo, Robin, I have some stuff that might be good for you to know. Take a look at this."

Cyborg brought up an overhead map of Jump City. "We were looking over the security tape and decided to see if there was anything matching that general packaging description coming here. Well, it turns out something has been brought here."

"Which warehouse?"

"That's the thing. It didn't all go to one place."

Robin was intrigued. "Come again?"

"It went to several. I was able to track the packages using the cameras in the storage facilities." Several red dots pinged on the screen. "I count four separate warehouses, a couple of which are right outside the city limits. According to the manifest (he brought up signed paperwork on the monitor), they're scheduled to be sent out tomorrow afternoon." Deep in thought, Cyborg scratched his robotic chin. "As much as I hate to admit it, it's a smart move on Slade's part. We wouldn't have thought about that before they were sent out, probably to the criminal underground."

"And who told you to check the limits?"

"Actually, it was BB."

Robin glanced at Beast Boy, who was busy inspecting the glass canister. "Really? He did?"

"You know what they say. Even a blind squirrel-that's-really-Beast-Boy can find a nut every once in a while."

He turned to the screen, scanning over the Jump City map. "Four warehouses. In four different parts of the city."

"And five of us," Raven continued. "We could each take a location and confiscate the shipment."

"Yes, but what if it is merely a ploy? The criminals have been known to try to lure us into a trap," Starfire added.

"Dudes!" Beast Boy bounced back into the conversation. "We can take whatever is thrown at us. We took down everyone not too long ago!"

"And look how long that lasted," Cyborg said.

"Yeah, yeah, whatever," the green-skinned teen waved dismissively. "Look at all of the friends we've made! Can't we call them? They probably need the hours, right?" Beast Boy could imagine the Honorary Titans lining up to a punch clock, Jericho putting a hole in his card, Pantha not too far behind.

"You know, Beast Boy, you have a good point."

"I do?" His thought bubble exploded with a loud pop.

"He does?" Cyborg asked, confused.

"Two good ideas in one day?" Raven said. She looked quickly from Beast Boy back to Robin. "I think we have a new world record."

"Titans, I have a plan," Robin stated as he pulled out his communicator. "Star, Raven, time to do some aerial reconnaissance. Get the coordinates to the warehouses in the city limits and do a couple of fly-overs. Don't do anything yet. The good news, if anything, is that Slade doesn't know we're on to him yet."

"Got it," Raven nodded. She and Starfire floated off to the exit bay to get ready.

"Beast Boy, you're doing the outer limits."

Robin turned to him as the background colors became muted, a toy UFO on a stick in Beast Boy's outstretched hand.

"...Of Jump City."

"Aw man."

"Same thing goes," Robin continued. "Make yourself inconspicuous."

"Dude, 'inconspicamuolus' is my middle name," he responded, his foot halfway out the door.

"Says the guy whose skin is green," Cyborg grinned at his slight chide.

Beast Boy's lip dropped, his eyes sagging as well. His hurt face did not subside as the door closed behind him.

"Cyborg, keep the cameras on those crates. The manifest says they're not scheduled to go out until tomorrow, but make sure they don't leave any earlier. Keep running an analysis on that metal as well. I want to know exactly what we could be dealing with. We know it definitely can't fall into the wrong hands."

"Worse hands than Slade?"

Robin sighed dejectedly. "Yeah, I don't want to think about that."

"So, what is our fearless leader going to do?" the half-robot asked Robin. "Rustle some feathers? Take to the bars to get some information with pool cues?"

"I'm going to make a couple of calls."

Cyborg narrowed his eyes. "Say what? You're going off to play receptionist? Speedy said they're following leads in Steel City. You probably shouldn't pull them off of that."

"I know, Cyborg. I have some people in mind. Including one who I need to get in contact with now so that they can get here in time for tonight."

His best friend's smirk made no attempt to stay hidden. "Is it your secret girlfriend? Starfire would not be happy."

"What? No."

His robot eye narrowed even more.

"Really. You really think I would do that to Star?"

"No." He turned his attention back to the monitor. "She'd probably throw you into the Sun anyway."

Robin could imagine an irate Starfire taking him by the cape and slingshotting him throughout the galaxy. "Yeah, probably." Shifting his focus, he opened his T-comm. "Everyone will meet up back here in a few hours. In the meantime..."

He pressed the red button.

"Herald, I know you're on your way back home, but I need you to get in contact with a few of our new teammates. It's for a mission tonight."

He hesitated for a moment, then began again.

"I also need to pass along a message to someone in particular..."

~~~~~

"And then I said, 'No, it was your gribnak in my postornian! Isn't that the funniest tale you've ever heard?"

Raven didn't want to tell her that telling Tameranian jokes for the past few hours had done nothing to make patrol go by any faster. Or that the Earth versions of the jokes were already drilled into her head by Beast Boy on a weekly basis, but she put on a brave face just the same.

"Thrilling."

The girls landed on the roof and made their way back downstairs. They had been doing reconnaissance for the past few hours, and other than Starfire asking about the wondrous lives of seagulls, not much had happened. They were able to confirm that the contents had not left their locations and relayed Cyborg other relevant information, up to and including why Beast Boy thought the entire exercise was pointless.

"Man, I could've just spent this whole time playing games!"

Speaking of which...

"Beast Boy, I don't want to hear your complaining."

Beast Boy's face drooped, nursing his shoulder. "I could think of a million different things to do other than fly around all afternoon. Cyborg got it easy. Why can't I ever be on camera duty?"

"Probably because you have the competence of a snail when it comes to computer knowledge."

"Hey! Snails can be smart...kinda."

"Friends!"

Starfire's sudden exclamation of joy caused the pair to stop their squabble. They had just walked into the common room to find more occupants than normal. Specifically, there was a girl in a black and red dress, black sleeves, and black hair with red bangs. Next to her was a gentlemen dressed in a green, heavy-duty military uniform with a swath of red hair. Talking to him were two other people: a caveman-like person wearing a loincloth, and a smaller teen with bright pink hair spinning a crystal in her hand.

"It is most wonderful to see you again, everyone!" Starfire yelled, grabbing Kole and Argent and hugging each of them in one arm. "It has been such a long time since our last meeting!"

"I think it has been two weeks." Red Star said from the couch.

Argent chuckled. "Chap, we have to teach you about sarcasm."

Cyborg came from the kitchen with nine cups of tea. "I brought refreshments!" Getting seven blank stares in response, he sighed loudly. "OK, I guess I'll have to eat all of these delicious cookies by myself."

He held up a plate that just happened to be empty. His eyes bogged out of his head. "Hey, where'd they go?" Seeing a slime trail make its way from the kitchen to the elevator, Cyborg groaned. "It's been such a long time since we've had company that's not a psychopathic super villain. And of course Silkie had to ruin it."

"Aaaanywho..." Raven took the opportunity to make small talk with their visitors. "What's new with you guys?"

"Gnarrk and I couldn't exactly go back down into our home, since it was destroyed during the battle with the Brotherhood of Evil," Kole explained. "We've been drifting around ever since."

"You should have told me that, love." Argent said, taking a steaming mug from Cyborg. "You and...uh...your friend here are welcome with me anytime."

"Gnarrk!"

Starfire turned to Red Star. "How about you? Did you go back to your land of mothers?"

"At first," he replied. "I then figured out that my place was not there, but here with other people like myself. I came upon my comrades here (he motioned to the others) and we sort of became a...how do you call it? A 'motley crew'."

Starfire nodded. "Yes, I have heard of such things. I read that in the Earth book that Beast Boy gave me."

"I have also learned to concentrate my radiation into more powerful feats of strength. Observe."

Red Star got up from his seat and held his palm forward. A bright red beam shot out and careened out the window, making a scorch mark on the ground below.

"My petunias!"

"Oooooh!" Starfire glowed at the display. "You have a power similar to mine." She surrounded her hand with her signature green energy. "With that, you can also release your excess radiation, correct?"

"You are, indeed."

"Are we all talking about new powers?" Kole said. She hurriedly waved her arms, and crystals began to materialize above her head.

"Interesting," Cyborg said as he examined the minerals. "You figured out how to make external constructs using your crystals. That's definitely cool, girl."

"Agreed."

The group turned to the main doorway, where the leader of the Teen Titans had just entered the room.

"Red Star, Kole, Gnarrk, Argent, thank you for coming on such short notice." Robin walked up to the table and set his communicator on it. "We have a mission of sorts that will get us introduced to each other." He touched the table, and a viewscreen appeared with a hologram of the city.

"Gnarrk!"

"Calm down, buddy," Kole reassured as he patted his arm.

"There are currently four shipments of dangerous materials that are set to be sent out of these respective warehouses." Four red dots appeared around the perimeter of the projection. "As a precautionary measure, our mission is to remove them from the premise, making sure that no one sees us or is aware of our presence."

"Gnarrk isn't exactly built for stealth, dude," Beast Boy quipped.

"I have the utmost confidence in Gnarrk, Beast Boy," Robin replied. "We do stealth missions with Cyborg, and he's a klutz. He'll be fine."

"Hey!"

"Because we have to cover four places at the same time, and splitting up is what got us in trouble last time, we're going in with extra backup. That's where you four come in."

Robin produced four new communicators from his pouch: one red, one brown, one blue, and one black. "I hope that I didn't make these for nothing. Red Star, Argent, Kole, Gnarrk...do you accept this mission?"

The four looked toward each other. After a moment, they nodded, and simultaneously reached for their communicators.

"Like you even had to ask, love," Argent grinned.

"How come we don't get color-coded stuff?" Beast Boy whispered to Raven.

SMACK!

"Ow!"

The Boy Wonder continued on as if nothing had happened. "Excellent. Now I have to make sure every place is covered." Robin pointed to the southmost blip. "This warehouse has the most product there, so we need to double team this one. Beast Boy, Cyborg, you're going with Kole and Gnarrk."

"Aww yeah!" Cyborg yelled, bumping fists with the caveman. "We'll take care of everything in no time!"

"Starfire, you go east with Red Star."

"We will not fail you, Robin," she said as she stood next to the Russian.

"Raven, you and Argent go west."

The two shared a silent nod with each other and then one at Robin.

"Robin, where are you going to go?"

"I'm headed north," he answered, deactivating the projection. "Someone has to go to the fourth spot."

"But dude, it's dangerous to go alone. Haven't you seen me play that video game? Some old dude says that in the very first cave-"

"I know, Cyborg. I'm not going alone."

Cyborg paused in the middle of his rant, now confused. "Say what?"

Beast Boy looked up from his perch on Gnarrk's shoulder. "Dude, you always go solo. It's that mysteeeeerious vibe you have."

"Not this time, Beast Boy. Safety in numbers."

"Ooooh, who will be accompanying you on your hazardous journey?" Starfire asked, waving her arms emphatically. She started to run through the list of possible Titans. "Will it be Pantha, who will slam the bodies of our foes? Will it be Herald, who summons portals to otherworldly dimensions and planets with his Earth instrument called the 'trumpet'? Will the fiery blast of friend Hot Spot be critical to our victory to-?"

"It's none of them, Star."

Starfire stopped in mid-sentence, her fingers stopping her count. "Then I shall echo the sentiments of friend Cyborg. Say the what?"

"None of the rest of the Titans were available," Robin explained as he strode his way to the main entrance. "I had to go make contact with...well...someone who has been out of the area for a while. Herald was kind enough to bring them over here..."

He rounded on the group and stood by the door. "And she will be with me for this mission."

Robin knocked on the door, and it slowly opened, bellowing out smoke for effect. Out stepped a thin silhouette with armor and what appeared to be two swords on their back.

Coughing, Robin attempted to wave the smoke away. "Beast Boy, I thought I told you to get rid of those gas canisters."

"Sorry, dude. You know how I love my dramatic entrances."

He motioned to the newcomer as the smoke cleared. "Anyways, welcome to the Tower..."

The girl came into focus as she tossed her long white hair over her shoulder, her black and grey armor glistening in the moonlight and an orange sash tied around her waist. She shook Robin's outstretched hand as he finished his greeting.

"...Ravager."

AUTHOR'S NOTE: And this is the moment where things are going to get weird.

As I mentioned over a year ago when I first started the story, this was going to be an attempt of sorts to merge the Teen Titans Go! comics with the actual cartoon verse. One of those things is introducing Rose Wilson (aka Ravager) into the mix. Why am I having her appear now of all times?

Well, I guess you're just going to have to find out.

Since this chapter was written in part over a year ago, I had to change a few things from before, mainly Kole and Red Star's powers. Bringing them more in like to their actual comic counterparts, I think, will make them a little more useful for future endeavors.

Also, I like how I've been saying that this will be updated more often and that hasn't happened. Although, this chapter and the last is a smaller difference between the last two, so...that's something, I guess.

Yeah, and I should've split this chapter up, but oh well.

Read and review, if you like. Until next time, people.

Chapter 5 - Locker

You can fit a lot into a one by one by three foot space.

Then again, middle school didn't really leave that much room to begin with, but students made do with what they had.

Phineas's had his books on the lower part, with a collapsible shelf halfway up.  He used this to hold smaller things like his multilingual pens and pencils.  Of course, there was one time where the shelf overextended, resulting in his neighboring lockers having large holes in their sides.  To this day, he still had not told anyone the real cause of the holes.

That's probably because nobody would have believed him.

Ferb's was neat as well, but he had built a mechanical arm that dispensed all of his supplies in accordance to his schedule.  It was nearly perfect...except for the fact that it would sometime give him his history text instead of his math one.  Imagine his surprise when he tried to open to the fractions chapters and ended up in the Factions chapter.

Isabella's was different in the fact that hers was mind-numbingly pink.  On the very back wall, she had many pictures of Phineas surrounded by hearts and rainbows.  Yeah, there were books in there too, but who cared about that when you had the boy of your dreams right down the hall?

Buford's...well, it was a wonder that anything could be found in the mess heap that he called a locker.  However, he managed to find things when he needed them most (which was usually at the very last minute).

Baljeet's was free of mess and dysfunction, almost to the point where even the slightest thing out of place would send the Indian boy into a tizzy.  There were alphabetized, sorted, and properly calibrated.  The last part was important because his digital itinerary made sure that everything was kept in order even when he was away from his locker.

An important place for an important part in a young kid's life...

Unless you're Buford, of course, who was currently lying in an avalanche of the belongings that had spilled out of his locker.

"For the record, Buford, it is really not that difficult to keep it neat."

"You be quiet, Nerd!"

Rush - Chapter 5

AUTHOR'S NOTE:  Yeah, this was totally suppose to happen a week ago.

Hence the whole "Rush" thing.

The suggestions, in case you were wondering, were brought to me by KrystalFruit22, a co-worker of mine who is the only person I know who has a 1k+ reviewed fanfic.  She writes Avatar fanfiction, and I would strongly suggest giving her a shot.  Her writings start off rather slow, but they pick up rather quickly if you keep with it.  I highly recommend it.

Anyhoots, this is the last chapter of this collection of one-shots.  I might do this again at some point in the future.  I didn't really keep the schedule that I wanted, but it did the job I wanted it to.

Read and review, if you like.  Until next time, people.

Chapter 3 – A Brand New Direction

"Robin?"

The voice sounded very far away.  It echoed in every direction at once.

"Robin?"

The face on the screen seemed to silently mock him, as if to---

"Hey, Robin!"

Cyborg's shout managed to bring the group leader back to focus.

"You all right, man?"

The Teen Titans leader said nothing, the sour look on his face increasing in intensity by the second.  Suddenly, he turned toward the exit.

"Dude, where are you going?"

"I need to clear my head."  With that, he walked out, leaving his team worried...

And the archer on the screen confused.  "Uhhh...what's his deal?"

"Speedy, I would need an entire day to go through his deal."  Cyborg set his gaze back onto the screen.  "We'll go ahead and start analyzing the materials.  Let us know if you find any more of it."

"Will do.  Speedy out."

As the display faded back to black, Cyborg glanced over his shoulder to the rest of the team.  "BB, Rae, I'm going to need your help with getting the equipment prepped."

"What about Starfire?"

"I think she already knows what she's doing," he smiled.  "Star?"

"I am metaphorically and literally 'ahead of you', Cyborg," Starfire said, floating toward the door Robin had used to exit.  "I shall see if he needs any consoling."

"Well, hurry up.  Don't let him go into a funk if you can; we're going to need him for whatever he's planning."

~~~~~

Robin leaned over his desk, the papers that had Slade's last known whereabouts and activities strewn all about.  He had spent countless hours in this room, looking and searching for his nemesis.  Even with the threat of the Brotherhood of Evil around the globe, he would take every available moment to see if there was any clue...any hint that Slade was back.

And he had found nothing.

Now, all of a sudden, in the span of ten video frames, there he was.  It was as if he never left.

Robin's rage boiled over.

"RAH!"

He threw the mask at the door, determined to either shatter it or make a large dent in the entryway.  Or both.

"Robin."

Or neither.

He had closed his eyes in rage, not knowing that a very quick-reflexed Tamaranian had entered his room, or that she had expertly caught the mask out of the air.

"I do not believe the smashing of anything is going to subside your anger."

Robin turned back toward the table, his rage barely being contained.  "It won't, but it will make me feel a little better."

Starfire walked forward, gently setting the mask on the desk.  She did not want to jump into the issue headlong, but she could not figure out an easier way to try to get Robin to calm down.  "Robin--"

"I don't want to hear it, Star."

"Robin, we do not even know what his plan is, or even if he has a plan."

"My gut's telling me he does."  Robin pounded the desk with his fist.  "And my gut is almost always right."

"Well, perhaps you can tell your gut to keep the guessing to a minimum."

He turned toward her, his voice rising.  "Star, we had all of the criminals in Jump City in custody.  None of them have had an opportunity to get a foothold into anything these past two weeks.  And Chang's not exactly smart enough to work it all out on his own. He had to have help.  And he's worked with Slade before."  His fists started to shake as his gaze went to the floor.  "I know I never should have let him walk way from me when we had to stop Trigon."

"But we did.  Because it was for the greater good."

"That doesn't make me feel any better, Star."

Starfire walked forward, placing her hand on his shoulder.  "Robin, I do realize that this is your arch nemesis that we are conversing about, but it is impossible to know what he is planning at this time.  All we can do is be prepared."

Robin's eyes were still on the table, so Starfire took the opportunity to continue onward.

"We are not the same team that fought him when he was working with Trigon.  We are stronger.  This is also not mentioning all of the new friends that we have made over the past few weeks.  None of them will let us down."

"I don't want to drag anyone else into this.  It's my fight."

"It is not your fight, Robin.  It is ours.  Cyborg's and Beast Boy's and friend Raven's as well as mine.  You will not rid yourself of our companionship so easily."

Starfire, to the shock of Robin, forcibly turned him around and embraced him.

"Whatever happens, Robin, we will be with you.  Together."

Robin blushed, returning her hug.  "Thanks, Star."

"I really hate to break up whatever boyfriend/girlfriend consoling you guys are doing right now..."

Both Robin and Starfire jumped, the sound of Cyborg's voice booming over the loudspeaker.

"But I found something that you might want to take a look at, Robin."

Robin pressed a button on his desk.  "We'll be right there, Cyborg."  He turned to his alien teammate, a smile returning to his face.  "Let's go catch some bad guys."

Starfire squealed as she started to hover toward the door.  "Oh, I do enjoy the catching of the bad people!"

With that, they were off to rejoin their teammates, leaving the mask and their worries behind...for the meantime.

Duplicate - Chapter 3

AUTHOR'S NOTE:  Hey, remember that time I totally was working on an entire "season" of new stories for Teen Titans?

Yup...those were the days.

I was suppose to get this done on Sunday, but the fact that I suck at fantasy football caused a lot of things to fall to the wayside, including this.

But hey, if I can update this...

Actually, nope.  Not going to promise anything.  Just expect to see some familiar faces in the next chapter.

Read and review, if you like.  Until next time, people.

Don't update often enough?

Fanfiction's not the best way to get known on a art-centric website?

Take your pick. I don't really know why myself.
