"Bring in the defiant brat!" Queen Cardstroke commanded her knights. The giant oak door's handles creaked open slowly. The two Jacks wore red and white striped jackets to signify their rank, as they dragged their captive by the chains around her wrists and ankles. Upon finally standing before their Queen at the end of her huge throne, the duo locked the chains into place, taking their statuesque stances beside the accused.
"You've been brought before me, the Queen of Deckarea, to plea your case and tell me why you interrupted the death of a criminal. You should be glad that I am just too all sisters, regardless of age and actions. Had you been a man, you'd be dead long before now. Speak now and tell me your reasons of treason!"
The girl in chains sighed 'What have I gotten myself into? I shouldn't have listened to that damn gossiper!' "Your Majesty, please, think about my words. That man you

"If you brought the lighting, I know Cy's packing the thunder! Wait for my cue! Titans' Together-Hey! That does sound better than Titans Go!" Terra smiled to herself as she contorted her collected sand into the shape of a miniature cannonballs.
Aqualad did the same as he followed the blonde's lead. The two shot off their elemental projectiles quickly once an opening was clear, crashing into Adonis chest plate. "Bee hit now, in the center. Turn it to the max!" Terra called as she and her scaled companion continued combined their barrage into one final attack.
Bee pulled out her stingers as she poured on the power to 100%. The heat of Bee's electricity caused the mud that had found its way into the kinks of Adonis's armor to harden. Terra's plan had worked so far, slowing down Adonis's swings at Cy and Bee. Now for the finishing blow! Terra found her footing in the sand once again, and yanked as hard as she could.

The bay doors swished open, light footsteps echoing softly through the quiet room. Despite how late it was, Raven found that she couldn't sleep. Someone in the Tower was most likely having a nightmare, one on par with the ones she had been having recently. Whoever it was, their emotions were restless and a tangled mess, which did wonders for her empathy.
So now the heroine was up at 3 a.m. to get some tea to calm her nerves. Walking into the tiled kitchen, she opened the cabinet that held her tea. Jasmine was the flavor she chose, it always good for nights like these.
"Can't sleep either, Rae?" Due to the lack of sleep, Raven jumped at the sound of the voice. Off in the darkness of the room, something broke as per usual. She spun on her heel to find glowing green eyes staring at her. Blinking her eyes to adjust them to the lighting, it turned out that it was Beast Boy.

"Oh come on, Rae! Despite how cool I am, I haven't gotten that many kisses from a girl so I know that what you did had to mean something! Nobody kiss anybody like that without a valid reason!"
Coming from a solo training session, Robin had just entered the main hallway that lead to the common room. Standing on the arcs of the sliding doors, holding them back with their strength were Starfire and Cyborg. He ducked his head under Star's to peer into the room as well. It was one of BB and Raven's fights. Again.
Though something was off as their leader watched the duo normally they'd be face to face, yelling at the top of their lungs (or at least Beast Boy would.). Here, they were constantly moving, Raven back to him as they walked in circles around the room.

To Stay Healthy You Need To Eat Right, Exercise, And Maybe Have A Little Good Luck .
Continuity: After Leader
What many people weren't aware of about Jinx, was that the strength of her powers depended on karma put on to her and the karma she gave out. If someone treats her wrong, the bad luck strengthens, which means more offensive ability. And if someone is kind to her, her magic gains a little good luck. And that good luck equaled many things: successful missions, quiet afternoons, but most importantly it gave her the ability to heal.
She had discovered it long time ago, after helping out an orphan with some bullies and then needing to end up healing the one of the Five after an intense fight with the Titans. The one downside is that using positive energy was much more draining then using negative energy. Jinx didn't know if it was because the world had become such a negative place, or because she had always counted on her Bad Luck.

Like Raven, Jinx happened to be a fan of reading. Both girls had similar taste in their novels: they were usually dark and romantic, something fantastical and different. The only major difference between them happened to be that Jinx's werehow should one put this? They were written to an older audience, more risqué if you will.
Jinx hummed a little melody as she pushed her back against the Titans circular couch, sunlight streaming into the room. She was visiting Raven and her 'family' while they were figuring out the other members for her soon to be team named Titans South. It was quiet as Robin and Starfire were on patrol, Raven had gone to her favorite bookstore, Cy was in the garage, and BB was (surprisingly enough) training.

The normally clear skies that came with the Southern Hemisphere were painted black from the dark clouds. Rain came in buckets, flashes of light crackling the sky, and thunder echoed off in the distance. Inside the T shaped tower that had been built a couple months ago, the Titans South team sat in silence. Each member was left alone to their own devices except Kid Flash who was trying to be involved with everyone simultaneously.
He happened to be a little restless at the moment, zipping back and forth between each side of the room. The speedster would have gone outside, but because Lighting sensed that this was going to be a big storm, KF was stuck inside. It was a horrible day for him, with raging storms and increasing boredom.

"So I've decided that Jinx will lead the team." Robin declared through the screen. He paused, waiting for a reaction. And he got it. Pantha and Lighting were screaming their objections and surprise, Pantha slipping into Spanish and Lighting accidently letting off a few sparks. The two set up pretty blank arguments against Robin's choice, only to have the two of them start fighting. Somehow the Boy Wonder's voice could be heard throughout the room when he said,
"You do realize Raven's behind on the couch reading, right?"
It then became very quiet in the Titans South common room (off screen Raven had a small grin on her face, as it was always good to know that she had fear instilled in some of her teammates.) "May I ask why you choose Jinx to lead the team, comrade?" Red Star asked the Titans leader.

"Okay, Affection and Happy I understand, but Timid? You're going to have to explain that to me." Just because he and Cyborg called them by their 'names' doesn't mean she had to-publicly anyway. Raven didn't need everyone to know that she really did have split personalities in her head.
"Where you nervous or embarrassed," He said, taking another sip, "You do one of three things: you tuck your hair behind your right ear, you bite your lower lip, or that distant look in your eye." Surprised by his detail, and a little embarrassed, she unconsciously did the second. "See what I mean?" He commented, causing her face to flush a slight pink.
Raven was about to make a witty retort, when the common doors opened, something zooming behind her back. Raven turned her head-nothing. When the demoness turned back to Logan, a certain red-haired had her orange arms hugged around his neck. Raven's eyes widened slightly in surprise-no, Jealously, Starfire was

He wondered if her gift was working, but decided on it later. He took another deep breath as he was about to continue his story, for while Raven's hand was still under his, he had yet to address the scars on his arms and back. This, he knew, was causing Cory to shine brighter than Affi and Brave which he knew had helped Raven try to show that small sign of affection. "So now you know-and everybody else. What? You didn't think I noticed the camera's?-why I always disappear on June 6 and don't like boats in the slightest."
"And, no, the T-Ship is not a boat-- it's a rocket and submarine." At this Raven laughed, and he smiled. He loved that sound and was glad he could lighten the mood. "Anyway, you know what made it worse for me, watching my parents die?" He noticed that his voice lowered and darkened, despite how he attempted to keep a positive mood. It was of course, impossible.

"First I need to know if you actually thought I was born green?" Beast Boy asked before starting his story. Raven pressed her book against her lap as she gave a tiny shrug, an uncharacteristically sheepish grin gracing her face. At this BB's eyebrows shot up and his eyes widened as he pointed an accusing finger. "I don't believe you! You actually thought I came out green?" He cried, Raven blushing slightly.
BB quickly regained his grinning composure, the shock having passed seamlessly. "Well, I guess that's to be expected when you're the most mysterious member of the Titans. No, Rae, I wasn't born this color." Even though he had given a playful shrug, the last word rolled off his tongue like a cuss word. "If Cy ever fixes my holo-ring (which he probably has, seeing as he hasn't left the garage all week), I'll show you what was never meant to be."

Raven plopped down onto her bed, her purple-black hair spreading out as she sighed. She really had no idea why she was acting so out of character. She glanced over to her trunk atop it lay a pointed-edged mirror. The same one that lead to the world of her inner-mind, called Nevermore. Maybe she should consult her emotions, ask them why they were having more of an effect on her than normal. She sighed again, knowing full and well why she wasn't able to control her emotions better without anything exploding or blowing up.
She lifted up her right arm, looking at the silver bracelet on her wrist. Whenever it shifted in the light, she could see the words imprinted on it. It was called the Dove's Wing, said to bring peace to the bearer's mind.
Coincidentally, Beast Boy had gotten it for her after visiting her favorite bookstore while the Titans were on shopping run the other day. He had probably heard how it was supposed to help a person

Raven gave a startled jump (damn that bracelet!!!), clutching her heart before she spinning her chair around. "What the Trigon?" She cried, semi-glaring at her brother. Raven hadn't even sensed Robin, as they formally called him in the tower, who was dressed in his black and blue plaid pajama pants and a white muscle shirt. He stood in the doorway, leaning on the banner with his arms crossed, his normally sleepy daze long faded since finding his twin in the monitor room.
"Robin," Raven replied, her nervousness all but gone in an instant. She was attempting to come up with a proper response, but it was rather hard even for her under his mask's glare. "What are you doing here?" The detective uncrossed his arms, striding into the room and moving toward the counters.
He leaned past his sister, who was whistling some tuneless song, to check all the screens before them. The Titans leader's eyes narrowed even more so once he realized what wa

Things just weren't the same he wasn't the same. Somewhere along the line in the past two years, he had grown up. The changes were small though, miniscule things (thank Azar it wasn't anything major like him leaving her alone-he had made a promise once and she intended to keep it). It was the way he carried himself, head held high and shoulders to the sky (ignoring the rhyme she just made, he had gotten taller, now towering over her at 6'1'').
It was how he helped Star with both shopping and cooking, built his own Beast-Bike with Cy, even helped Nightwing with battle strategies and could come up with clever one liners that rivaled the best of them. How he always waited outside her door for meal times, and occasionally watched the sunrise with her silently

It wasn't the white light that woke him, no. It was a familiar scent, one that he had grown accustom to over the years; one that he would recognize anywhere. It smelt of lavender and books, with just a hint of jasmine. And it was close. Beast Boy's eyes shot open as the smell overwhelmed his senses. He jolted himself upright, only to feel a stinging pain surge through his body. He placed one of his green hands onto on his bandages that wrapped across his torso .Wait, bandages? Why would he need bandages? And why were his gloves off? And most importantly: WHY WASN'T HE WEARING A SHIRT?!

On normal days, Beast Boy would be trying to get her to laugh. On normal days, Raven would humor him by some sort of witty retort. On normal days, whenever they were having a generally good moment, the klaxon would go off.
Today was not a normal day, Beast Boy realized. Actually it hadn't been a normal week regarding everything he had notice was routine for them. First of all, Raven was actually initiating conversations. Second, she was actually being nice to him without him surprising her with a book he thought she'd like.
