The moving mess in his arms awoke him. He quickly looked at Raven, trembling and twitching in her sleep. She let out something between a moan and a cry.
“Rae!” he said loudly and touched her face, making her wake up immediately. Her eyes were wide open and she looked at him unconsciously. “Bad dream?” he asked, caressing her cheek gently with his thumb. She didn’t seem to mind. Even relaxed into his touch and sighed, closing her eyes.
“Yes” she whispered back, furrowing her eyebrows.
She opened her eyes and glanced up at him. “The end of the world, what else?” She reached her index finger to her temple.
“Was the priest there?” he asked and immediately bit his tongue. He didn’t want to actually ask that. He was curious, but he didn’t want her to relive things.
“Yes” she answered weakly. She freed herself from his embrace and he instantly felt cold not only on his skin but also on his heart. He watched her sit on his left tiredly and leaning to the wall.
“Are you scared?” he asked.
“Of what?” she asked with her eyes still closed. The headache was killing her. Stupid nightmare.
“Of the priest.” She stopped massaging her temples and opened her eyes to look at him. She was in deep thought. Was she really scared? Sure, he tried to hurt her and probably will attack again. And yeah, she didn’t really want to be used to end the world again.
“A tad, yes” she admitted not once averting her gaze from his eyes. “Why?”
“I can… I mean, if you want me to…” he spluttered, trying to find a proper way of saying what he wanted to say. He found none. “If you want” he began again. “I can go out there, find the bastard and make sure he won’t lay another finger on you.”
“What?” she asked flabbergasted. He didn’t look away with shame. He was too sure about doing this for her.
“I’ll go and take him out if you want me to” he cleared. They were just looking into one another’s eyes. She couldn’t believe him. On the other hand, he wasn’t telling her this influenced by his emotions. He was, at least seemingly, calm.
“For real?” she asked quieter than a whisper. He smiled gently as he pushed some hair from the still bruised side of her face and nodded.
“I told ya, Rae. I’d do anything for ya.”
Her heart pounded like a hammer in her chest. His declaration was strong and sincere. He didn’t even as much as blinked when he suggested it. Not even a flinch. And he kept his hand on her bruised cheek, stroking her ever so slightly. He looked at her with such adoration in his forest green eyes, with such admiration. How did he manage to fall for her so strongly? What was it in her that he loved so much? That he was ready to actually kill? It was like he wasn’t himself, or as if he was so blinded by her that he didn’t think straight.
She heard him whisper her name and felt his fingers curl under her chin. His thumb gently stroked her bottom lip and she felt slight shiver go down her spine. She opened her mouth slightly so he would have better access to her lower lip. Her breathing became shallow. She was somewhat dazed. There was a silent ringing in her ears and her head was throbbing and she totally lost herself in this tiny touch of his finger stroking her lip. He put his other hand to her right cheek and she didn’t resist the urge to lean into it. Doing so she let her eyelids slid shut. Her other senses heightened. The feeling of his fingers running through her hair caused goosebumps all over her body. He whispered her name again, more huskily than before and all she wanted now was for him to kiss her.
Not that she wasn’t surprised when he actually did. At first this shocked her so much she had opened her eyes and let out a gasp, stifled by his mouth of course. His lips were slightly chapped. She tried to push him away, even smacked him on the arms a few times, but the only thing he did was gently licking her bottom lip. Feeling his hot tongue on her delicate flesh was intoxicating. She instantly stopped wriggling and opened her mouth, giving him permission to enter. She felt his tongue stimulate her own with jut slight wiggle of the tip of it. Her tongue responded as if it had a mind of its own. She put her arms around his neck as his fingers ran through her hair, occasionally stroking her cheek.
~...~"It seems she's bothered by that the end of the world thing... I kinda feel sorry for her."
"Imagine yourself in her place, she's actually forced to do it, it's not her choice"
"Doesn't mean she won't comply"
"Have some faith, man"
"omg they're doing it! They're kissing!"
"*squeal* <3 oh, the feels! BBRAE FOREVER LOOSERS~!"
"O.O I don't fucking believe it"
"That's it, I'm tracking your IP!"
Their breaths were ragged, they were kissing more intensely with every passing minute. Raven found her fingers playing with a strand of Beast Boy’s hair. He put his arm around her waist and pulled her closer to him. Now her breasts were touching his chest and his hands began to wander, exploring her curves. She found herself straddling him, didn’t even know when it happened. But feeling the throbbing bulge in his pants told her he liked it. He brushed his hand under her breast and she instantly bit him on the lip. Not to berate him, but to encourage him. She felt his lips twitch underneath her kisses into a small smile.
“So you’re that
kind of princess…” he muttered as she kissed his jaw. She murmured inquiringly.
“Fight to death over me and I may consider your courtship” he chuckled. She stopped in her tracks and looked him dead in the eyes.
And then suddenly slapped him.
"Nooooooo!!! BB what U done! omg! QAQ"
"He fucked it up again! XD"
"No! BB, you and your big mouth! Never know when to shut up! You almost got her!"
"well, at least they finally made out ^^"
"yeah, took them long enough"
“OW!” Beast Boy yelled holding his stinging cheek. “What was that for?!” he asked when she got up from him.
“For assaulting me and being cheeky.”
“Assau-…!” he wasn’t even able to finish repeating the word. “You’re the one sending me mixed signals, Rae!”
“Stop calling me that!”
“Why? Because it turns ya on?” he asked with a smirk.
“No! Because it indicates huge proximity!” Silence.
“So it turns ya on” he said bluntly. Raven groaned in reply. “What? I just called you ‘Rae’ a few times and you looked all willing and wanting!”
“Oh, right, I forgot you tried to shove me off the second I started kissing you” he said sarcastically.
“Exactly! You didn’t retreat!” she accused.
“You kissed me back, Rae!” he screamed, disbelief and frustration audible in his voice.
“I certainly did not!”
~...~"Alright, so what's wrong with her?"
"Huh, that makes sense, lol"
"Effing Ms. Denial -.-"
"Well, she did smack him a few times... before giving in and kissing him back, that is XD"
"she could just admit it already -.-"
"she's too proud to do that"
"so what, she thinks she's too good for Beastie-Boo?"
"I dunno, but it seems her pride is in the way, at least to me."
Her denial was stunning. He stared at her with eyes and arms wide, mouth agape. He shook his head with a frown.
“I can’t believe you! You’re unbelievable!”
“I am not
“Yes, you are
!” he said desperately.
“Garfield!” she said menacingly.
~...~"Lol, I can't with that name! XD"
He shook his head. “Fine” he said, giving up. “Forget it. I know what I know, you keep living in denial. Just answer my question. Do you want me to go find him?” he nodded his head in the direction of the door.
She wondered, making a short caculation. She wouldn’t have to be scared or worry about the priest anymore. On the other hand, killing wasn’t something they did and she didn't want to destroy him with guilt over killing someone. He already was full of it. She shook her head slightly.
“Are you sure?” She nodded. Beast Boy sighed as if disappointed.
“Fine.” He massaged his red cheek a while longer before he leaned into the wall again. She sat near him after a while.
“Shouldn’t we go?” she asked.
“I’m tired. Aren’t cha?” he glanced at her. She simply nodded. “So lay down” he said as he did it himself, facing the door.
Raven felt lost. She wasn’t sure what to do with herself, looking around when he spoke to her again.
“What are ya doin’, Rae?” She looked at him with furrowed brow. “Com’ere.” He invited her with a wave of his arm.
“Do you really think I’m going to spoon with you?” she asked with a cocked eyebrow.
“Rae, if you stop being in denial just for a few seconds, you’d remember you really enjoyed our little make out session” he stated shamelessly. “Now shut up, come to me and enjoy the spooning until you fall asleep.”
She rolled her eyes at him, but obediently lied down beside him, leaving a small gap between their bodies. Beast Boy sighed wearily.
“You’re a stubborn goat.” He closed the gap she left by pulling her small frame to his own body. She didn’t dignify him with a reply. At least not to his insult.
“We’re not spooning anymore” she said, and he knew exactly what she meant. His pants became really uncomfortable.
“Sorry…” he muttered and retracted his pelvis. Then they both managed to fall asleep.
His communicator woke him up. He glanced at it. It wasn’t anyone calling, it was his alarm clock. Six AM. He groaned. He thought of all the hard training Robin was going to… Wait. He looked at the date. His alarm clock woke him up, so that meant a new day started in the real world. All of the previous few minecraft days were all that they were. Minecraft days. Why were they so tired that they slept almost every minecraft night excluding the previous one? He didn’t want to think about it, yet alone wake Raven up. Wait, where is she actually? Just then he glanced to his left and saw her. With her back to him, she was bending down, probably stretching, her palms were put flat on the planks. Sweet lord, her ass is perfect.
He thought, still staring at her mindlessly. She straightened herself and began doing squats. He could swear she was doing this on purpose. After she was finished she kneeled and put her hands on the floor and started massaging her spine with cat ridge, her hips involuntarily going up and down, teasing Beast Boy’s senses.
“Oh, you’ve got to be kidding me!” he said aloud when he couldn’t take it anymore.
Raven stopped exercising and still on the fours, she glanced at him.
“What?” she asked.
“Are you doing this on purpose?” he asked, trying to cover the evidence of his excitement.
“Exercising?” she asked, cocking her eyebrow. “Yes, like every morning from five to six except Sundays.”
“I meant something else.” He admitted, blushing furiously. “Do you really get up at five every day just to exercise?” he asked with disbelief, gracefully changing the subject.
“I can’t sleep past five usually.” She said, getting up.
“So that’s why you’re never late for the training” he said smiling slyly.
“And you’re always late, because you need an alarm clock to wake you up this early.” She crossed her arms and looked down at him. He stared at her for another few seconds until he realized they were supposed to find Starfire and Robin.
“We gotta go” he stated bluntly and stretched himself.
“No way, I need a shower.” Beast Boy opened his eyes and glanced at her a little dumfounded.
“Do you see a shower somewhere?” he asked.
“I could use the waterfall…” she suggested averting her eyes from him. He couldn’t help himself. He saw her in his imagination, naked, under the powerful stream of cold water… He felt blood rush down his body again.
~...~"Can't sleep past five, poor thing! D:"
"I bet on her nightmares being a frequent entertainment"
"I wouldn't call nightmares an entertainment..."
"I swear she shook her ass on purpose"
"she didn't shake her ass, she was exercising, you perv -.-"
"call me a perv all you want, it worked on bb as well, so he's a perv too "
"loool, you see his face? he's imagining her under that waterfall!"
"me too, lol!"
“But you have to promise not to look” she said. And just like that, Beast Boy’s happy bubble burst.
“Huh?” he looked at her unconsciously and only understood what she was saying after few seconds. “Yeah, sure! Of course! No problem!” He said it all so hastily that Raven looked at him suspiciously.
“Okay…” she drawled slowly and started for the door. Beast Boy close behind her. She opened the door and spun to face him and put her hands on her hips. “And where do you think you’re going?”
“Um… Up?” he asked, indicating the top of the hill the waterfall came from. “I wanted to get a look on our surroundings and maybe find the island Rob and Star are on.” He explained, when she gave him a raised eyebrow. Her features softened upon hearing this.
“Oh. Okay.” She turned to leave for the waterfall and he got out after her. They shared another awkward glance at one another and then Beast Boy started to climb the mountain while Raven looked at him do so until she could no longer see him. Then she started undressing.
~...~"He sooooo wants to do her "
"Well no wonder, look at them legs! *whistles*"
"They behave like on the morning after one night stand, only without the sex XD"
"it's because Rae-Rae's such a prude "
"I bet she's a demon in the sheets ;D"
"loooool bb got slapped again! XD"
“Ouch, Rae, that hurt” Beast Boy complained for the fifth time, holding his aching cheek with his hand. Raven was far in front of him, trying to avoid eye contact and beating the crap out of him at the same time. They were already on their way to the island Robin and Starfire were on. At least they hoped it was that island. It was the only white area visible from the top of the waterfall.
“Serves you right. You promised not to look” she grumbled not glancing back at him.
“I said ‘I’m sorry’. And also ‘I couldn’t stop myself’ is a compliment, ya know.”
Raven only huffed with anger at this, but couldn’t fight the blush creeping its way to her own cheeks.
“Hey, they built a cottage!” Beast Boy said, smiling from one ear to another. They happily made it to their destination, the snowy island and found Robin and Starfire without any trouble.
“Brilliant” Raven said rolling her eyes. “Get in there, we don’t want to waste any more time.”
Beast Boy walked to the door without another word, Raven close behind him, and without any other preamble he opened the door and heard three different sounds. Raven from behind him let out a short shout, covered her eyes and walked away from the door calling Azar to help her. Starfire shrieked and Robin also let out a shout and took whatever was the nearest (being his cape) to cover their naked bodies. Yes, it was quite a view.
“Friends, we were just…” Starfire began.
“Keeping busy” Beast Boy finished for her, trying to suppress a laugh. “How typical of me to catch you two during this activity. We’ll come back later” he announced and proceeded to close the door hearing Robin angrily mumble something about knocking. After closing the door he walked up to Raven who was standing as far from the cottage as possible, staring somewhere far off.
~...~"Lool, he was so cool about it XD Unlike Robin XD"
"It wasn't his first time, remember? they even published that complilation of BB walking in on them XD"
"Ah, right, once with Raven, too XD"
"Poor Rae XD"
"What’cha doin’ Rae?” he asked, still amused.
“Looking at the huge tower spelling ‘Cy’ with a huge arrow pointing down” she replied casually. Beast Boy looked where she did and saw exactly what she was describing. In a fair distance there stood one, very tall tower. The inscription was most probably made from planks and torches put on the side of them so that they would be more visible.
“Huh.” Beast Boy said, pretty impressed. “I guess we know where to go next.”
“Yeah, at least we won’t walk into people ‘keeping each other busy’ anymore” she retorted.
Beast Boy couldn’t help but laugh at that, sheepishly scratching the back of his neck. "Yeah, I should've known better than just open the door."
"One would think you'd learn, but I guess you never will" Raven replied with a shrug.
"Okay!" Robin's voice startled them from behind. "Star's packing the things. So I guess we're heading for Cyborg then?" he asked, indicating the tall tower.
"Seems so" Raven deadpanned.
Robin looked at her, especially studying the left side of her face, which was covered with her black hair. "You okay?" he asked casually.
"Yeah" she lied ineptly, slightly nodding her head, but being careful not to shake the hair of her face. Robin noticed Beast Boy giving him signs not to pry for now and mouthing 'later' to him. So he decided to stay low. "I'm fine." Raven continued. "I mean he was a little annoying, but not beyond his standards" she added, indicating Beast Boy with her thumb. He immidiately sent her a glare and mouthed 'we made out' to Robin. The team leader cocked an eyebrow to that.
"Good" Robin replied to Raven with a gentle smile before turning to Beast Boy. "So, Wolf Boy, how's your back? Cause it looks nasty."
"Rae cleaned it with water." The changeling waved his hand dismissively. "How's your pride?"
Robin visibly frowned and before turning on his heel and going back to the cottage he muttered "Go to hell." Beast Boy laughed.
The four of them walked in the direction of Cyborg’s tower, in total silence. Girls walked in the front, boys behind them. Suddenly Robin spoke up to Beast Boy, still irked about the situation.
“It's about time that you learned how to knock. You're a big boy, Beast Boy.”
“Dude, let it go.” He rolled his eyes.
“Aren’t you embarrassed just a little?” Raven whispered to Starfire.
“No, friend Beast Boy has walked in on us making love so many times I got used to it.”
Raven smirked. “Maybe he likes it.”
“I don’t!” Beast Boy yelled at her, catching up to the girls, Robin on his balls.
“Stop eavesdropping” Raven deadpanned to Beast Boy.
“You’re getting additional chores” Robin announced.
“Oh c’mon, dude! It’s not like I did it on purpose!”
“I wouldn’t be so sure” Raven cut in with a sly smirk.
“Gimme a break, guys!”
And so they argued for the rest of the way to Cyborg’s tower until they stopped at the door.
Raven turned around to Beast Boy and looked him in the eyes.
“We knock this time” she stated, receiving a shrug from him.
“Do the honors, mama.” And so she knocked three times. The door opened to reveal Cyborg, in nude still. Raven shouted again, covering her eyes, again, and instantly turned her back on him, hiding her face in Beast Boy’s chest.
~...~"I was waiting for this! XD"
"Poor Rae-Rae, penises keep jumping her XD"
"Penises. Penises everywhere."
“Why do you hate me?” she asked, her voice slightly muffled.
“Way to go, dude, you scarred Rae forever” Beast Boy said, while Robin took his cape off and passed it to naked and embarrassed Cyborg.
“You’re gonna need this” the team leader said, avoiding looking at his still naked friend directly. Cyborg humbly took the cape.
“Thanks, I’ll clean it afterwards… and…”
“Keep it” Robin said. “Please.” He added, walking giggling Starfire into the tower.
~...~"Is it just me or is Starfire kind of okay with nudity?"
"lol, Star shamelessly looked Cy up XD"
"let the shipping war begin"
Cyborg quickly covered himself with Robin’s cape. Seeing this, Beast Boy spoke to Raven who was still clinging to him.
"Rae, it's safe to look, he's covered" he announced, gently patting her shoulder.
"Gar, penises haunt me..." she muttered tearfully.
"I'm sorry, Rae" he chuckled helplessly, stroking her hair. "I'll defend you, I promise. Now go inside, maybe Cy's got a bed."
"Ooh, bed!" She instantaneously walked inside the tower, Beast Boy close behind her. They looked around the room. Cyborg indeed had 5 beds.
"Okay, Cyborg?" Raven turned his attention on herself. "Which one did you not put your naked butt on?" she asked.
He frowned at her. "Wow, Rave, you're being cranky. PMS?"
"Naah, she's been through a lot" Beast Boy waved his hand dismissively. Cyborg, Starfire and Robin exchanged curious looks, while Raven coughed significantly at Beast Boy. "You know I can be a pain in the ass..." he began realizing he'd raised interest of their friends, but then he frowned and began thinking. "Although..."
Him and Raven began counting on their fingers then suddenly Raven came up with an "uh-oh".
"Uh-oh? What does it mean?" Robin asked.
"Does it mean the mode of the gremlin creature?" Starfire asked. Raven looked at her with a frown.
"You guys call my pms a gremlin-mode?" she asked in disbelief.
They all blushed sheepishly. Robin spoke in their defense. "Well, Raven, you're not exactly a breeze to deal with during that time."
"I get it, but gremlin-mode? Seriously? Am I that bad?"
"You are small, mean and we're scared to breath near you" Cyborg added.
~...~"Pffft, Raven's a gremlin! XD"
"I'm a gremlin too when I'm pmsing "
"It's kinda cute they call it that x3"
"Now some of her behaviors make more sense "
"That does sound like I'm a gremlin fed after midnight" Raven agreed, finally sitting on a nearby bed. Then all of a sudden Control Freak’s voice sounded everywhere. They all started nervously.
“Congratulations, Titans! You’ve reached the next level of the masterpiece game!”
“What’s your plan, Control Freak?!” Robin yelled.
“No need to yell, Boy Wonder. I just wanted the Titans to show their true faces to all their fans.”
“And what the hell does that mean?” Cyborg asked, scratching his bald head.
Control Freak laughed menacingly. “Oh, it only means you’re on livestream.”
They all paled while the villain laughed loudly. For a moment they were all as if paralyzed. They have been observed and listened to by at least one third of the world, assuming that Control Freak has properly advertised his livestream with the Titans.
“Wha-?” Beast Boy managed to utter, and then they all heard a very loud and rapid inhale from Raven and they looked at her worried.
“Raven, are you…?” Starfire cut off watching her friend hyperventilate.
"Rae!" Beast Boy kneeled in front of her first, the others quickly gathered around them.
"Raven, you need to calm down. Breathe out" Robin said in a calm voice. "Cyborg, open a window." The man immediately rushed to fulfill the order. Meanwhile Raven was still hyperventilating and Beast Boy decided to take action. He pushed the hair out of her face and put his hands on both her cheeks, directing her face on his.
"Rae, come on, look at me!" Before he could say anything else, he was cut off by Starfire's gasp.
"X'hal! Friend, what had happened to you?!" she asked concerned, looking at the black and purple bruises on Raven's face. Robin and Cyborg both began asking questions simultaneously and Beast Boy had to blow a really loud whistle for them to finally shut up. He sent them a death glare.
"Later!" he ordered, before trying to catch Raven's attention again. He took her face in his hands again and made her look at him. He noticed her eyes were full of unshed tears. "Now breathe out." She let out a shaky breath, but quickly resumed few too quick inhales. Then they all began breathing slowly, in and out, to help her visualize. Slowly she regained normal breathing, finally letting a few tears fall from her eyes and onto Beast Boy's gloved hands.
"You're doing great" Robin praised in a gentle voice.
"If you could see the comments!" Control Freak howled in delight before quoting. "I almost feel sorry for watching this. Almost!" He then burst in laughter again.
"Azar, we're commented on..." Raven whined tearfully.
"Doesn't matter. Now try to calm down" Robin instructed her, still talking gently.
"Yes, please do, friend, we have all done some embarrassing things. Robin and I have had the crazy sex of the monkeys for hours until I just couldn't go on anymore" Starfire stated casually, shrugging.
"Nice" Beast Boy said glancing at Robin over his arm.
"You dawg!" Cyborg exclaimed and they both offered him a high five. The team leader high fived with them both with a shy smile.
"It's nothing compared to my embarrassement, Star" Raven stated. "For starters I officially peed in public."
"So? I walked around naked all this time" Cyborg reminded. They all glared at him, making him shrug. "What?"
"Just let her finish, Cy" Beast Boy said. "And all of you better sit down" he added, sitting on Raven's left side.
"It's a good advice, you better take it" Control Freak's voice resounded again.
"I swear to Azar's ashes, I will eviscerate you" Raven threatened, making the villain laugh.
"I'd like to see you try! You're just a tiny little girl now and you don't even know where I am!"
"I'll give you an advice, Control Freak" Raven began. "Don't piss off a pmsing half-demon, it will end up badly for you. Always. No matter what."
"I take it the world knows then?" Robin asked.
"Oh, it's just the tip of the iceberg" Raven replied. Robin, Starfire and Cyborg exchanged worried looks, then the team leader urged her to go on with a nod. "So, as I was saying, first I peed, then the next thing I know I'm being attacked by a..." she let out a shaky sigh, looking at Robin hesitantly. She bowed her head, focusing her eyes on her own hands and continued. "A priest of the Church of Blood, my father's cult." Starfire gasped, Robin's mask widened, and Cyborg let out a short 'what?'. "Of course he didn't fail to introduce himself and even explained his motives. You know, villains like to talk about their big plans to conquer the world..." she added sarcastically.
"Hey!" Control Freak yelled offended.
"Evisceration!" she yelled back, straightening her back like a string. They only heard the villain's offended huff. Raven continued. "So apparently there is some other prophecy..." They each reacted similarly to the last word. Robin groaned aggravated, Cyborg rubbed his bald head and Starfire winced and spat some curse word in Tamaranean. "And according to that prophecy, if that guy has sex with me, it'll start the end of the world. Again."
“So…" Cyborg began, getting up and strolling around the room, nervously touching his bald head. "He tried to rape my Raven?” he asked, audibly irked, but everyone ignored him.
"So the priest did that to you?" Robin asked indicating her face.
"Yeah." Raven winced. "A few backhands with signets and banging my head on the soil."
“He hurt my lil’ sis?” Cyborg was beginning to sound desperately. “He dared
to try and hurt my sissy
? He wanted to abuse my baby
?!” he squeaked out, tears pouring out of his eyes. Now everyone looked at him.
"I thought the car was your baby" Beast Boy stated bluntly, making Cyborg pull out a clenched fist at him without another word. Beast Boy cowered while Raven touched her big brother's fist and pushed it down.
“Cyborg, I appreciate the concern, but could you please stop it? You’re creeping me out” she confessed. "And I already nailed a panick attack."
“He tried, to hurt you! I’ll fucking kill the motherfucker!”
“Watch your language, kids may be watching us” she noted.
“Who cares, they saw a guy try to rape you
, Rave! You! My lil’ sissy!”
“Call me sissy again” she said, a menacing note audible in her tone. "I'm ready to eviscerate just about anyone right now."
"Then I shall sit down and calm my naked butt" Cyborg stated, and done exactly what he had said.
"Glad" Robin stated, before turning abruptly to Beast Boy. "Now, where the hell have you been when this was happening to her?!" he spat angrily. Beast Boy's wolf ears immediately went down and he put up his hands in surrender.
"You know how you hate when someone is talking to you through the bathroom door?" Raven asked her leader. He offered a nod. "That's exactly what he was doing. Only this time I didn't have the comfort of the door. So I tried to put him out of my hearing range, because he was yelling to me."
"Oh, Beast Boy..." Starfire looked at him disapprovingly.
"Hey!" His wolf ears shot up again as if to say he's alert. "I eventually heard her calling for help and massacred the guy with these very claws!" he indicated his own clawed hands. "I left him all in blood, probably for death, so I won't be surprised if I go to jail when we get out of here!"
"Nah, he's alive" Control Freak said dismissively.
"Great, now I can at least know for sure I will get attacked again" Raven stated venomously.
"Hey! I will let you know I was the one who blocked his fly!" the villain argued.
"Oh!" Raven exclaimed theatrically putting both her hands on the chest as if to stop her heart from jumping out. "Oh, thank you! My knight in shining armor! My prince charming! My hero, oh, I did not know you're my savior! Aw! Oh, wait." She frowned, pretending to think. "Is there any chance that you only wanted your stupid game to go on?!"
"Damn it! You're good" Control Freak said.
"Well, it doesn't take a detective to solve that puzzle, you're a simple mind" Robin said mercilessly. Starfire nodded beside him.
"Agreed. Even a child would know your true intentions."
"Yeah, what'd ya expect? The hand of the princess and the half of the kingdom?" Beast Boy smirked slyly.
"You'd want it!" Contro Freak scoffed. "Making all goo-goo eyes at her, confessing your undying love to her, baring your soul, calling her your mate..."
"What?" The other three Ttians asked simultaneously, boys with dread and Starfire with evident joy. The villain began singing.
"Garfield and Raven, sitting in a tree. K-I-S-S-I-N-G..." he continued the childish song while the team exchanged awkward looks.
"We might've had a little heart to heart talk..." Beast Boy explained, nervously scratching the back of his neck.
"Yeah. And thanks to this tw^t's song I just realized I've been calling you by your real name all this time" Raven said, giving him an apologetic look.
"Meh. I'll live. But I should let people know it's after the president, not the cat."
"They'll associate it with the cat anyways" Raven said with a shrug.
"You're right, why bother?" Beast Boy shook his head in resignation.
"They even made out and spooned! And then the spooning turned to forking!" Control Freak said out of the blue, making the two blush. Robin and Cyborg began whispering something, glancing at Beast Boy menacingly.
"I've decided, I will
eviscerate him" Raven muttered. Beast Boy leaned to her and replied.
"Let's make a deal. I'll torment his body, you'll take care of the soul."
"Deal." They shook hands on it.
~...~"Well, aren't they just meant to be? ^.^"
"they're so worried about her, it's so cute"
"I bet now Raven would love that chastity belt "
"it's cute when she threats with evisceration XD"
"I don't see anything cute about an angry demon DX"
"half-demon, pay attention, man!"
"Didn't they reach a level? shouldn't they go to the next one then?"
"Beast Boy!" Robin's yell rang in the room, along with Starfire's joyous squeal, making both Beast Boy and Raven flinch nervously.
"We need to talk, buddy" Cyborg said menacingly. "Like men." Seeing the serious looks his male friends were giving him Beast Boy swallowed audibly. Meanwhile Starfire quickly sat next to Raven with an excited glimpse in her now hazel eyes.
"Good luck" Raven offered to Beast Boy, letting him know he has to go endure his own torture.
"You too" he said before getting up and walking to the boys as if he was going to be beheaded. Once he was gone, Starfire began blabbing.
"Oh, X'hal, you have to tell me everything!" she said, looking Raven in the eyes. The ex-empath cocked an eyebrow.
"About forking? I'm sure you know more than I do."
"Oh, please, Raven, spare me the sarcasm. You have engaged in the making of the out! I wish to hear all about it! And also about the confession. And about the mate issue, because I may have not understood this one..."
"Starfire talks funny XD"
"Only when she's excited as I noticed"
"Starfire" Raven called to catch her friend's attention. According to plan Star focused her curious eyes on Raven. "Can we, please, have this discussion later? Preferably in a place where we won't be watched and listened to?"
"Oh..." the princess's cheeks turned bright red and she bowed her head simultaneously twirling a strand of hair on her index finger. "I was hoping that perhaps, I mean since everybody else knows..." She raised her eyes at Raven, but met the ice cold stare. She instantly frowned, tsking. "This is not the fair, I am the last to know what had happened between you two!"
"Are you going to pout about me being me?" Raven asked with raised eyebrows. Starfire sighed.
"No. That would mean I am a bad friend."
"And yet you're still pouting." Starfire groaned.
"Can you at least tell me if you are the official again? I am dying!"
"I wish I could, Star, but we really didn't come to any conclusions. In fact we mostly yelled at each other." She explained with a helpless shrug.
"Of course" the redhead scoffed. "First you do the yelling, then you do the thinking. That is so typical of you two interacting."
Raven frowned at her friend's unusual behavior. "Wow, losing the ability to fly really bummed you out." Star sighed wearily in response.
"It has been tough, indeed. And orgasms can only last as much to make me feel better."
Raven raised her eyebrows at that before frowning. "Star, again, too much information." The other girl blushed.
Meanwhile on the other side of the room, Cyborg and Robin had cornered Beast Boy.
"Listen closely you broccoli head" Cyborg began, puffing out his chest. "If you hurt my little girl..."
"Hey!" Robin interrupted him. "I thought we agreed it's our
"What do you know, you took Star from me! Besides I'm closer with Rae-Rae!"
Robin gasped outraged. "You're
closer with her?! She's been in my mind! We're like effing twins since then!"
"She comes to me for advice, you pageboy!" Cyborg countered, indicating Robin's half-grown out hair, still covered in hair gel.
"I'm growing out hair and you know it! And you!" Robin turned to Beast Boy again, who put his hands up in surrender, startled. "You abandoned me in this, traitor!"
"Hey, I'm sorry I was growing out my wolf mane to protect your 'little sister'!" he said, drawing air guotes at the last words. "Who, FYI, treats your both like brothers." Cyborg's eyes turned teary again and Robin's chin trembled slightly.
"Really?" they asked in unison.
"Really" Beast Boy assured. "So if you could stop arguing who's closer with her and start the infamous 'big brother talk', I'd be grateful."
"True, let's get this over with" Robin said, rolling his shoulders. Cyborg muttered an agreement while cracking his neck.
~...~"Raven can totally handle herself, but they still treat her like 'their little sis' XD"
"I know, it's adorkable >w<"
"BB's all cool, I'd be shitting my pants"
"actually at this point, he' at the advantage over both of them. He's got fangs and claws and shit "
"I think he's still pissed at the rapist (no wonder) so he's like I don't give a damn"
"So let us get this straight, grass stain" he spoke in a dead serious tone, glaring daggers at his half-wolf friend. Beast Boy put his wolf ears down.
"If any of us, as much as hears a word from her about you pulling off something stupid, hurting her..." Robin cut off for Cyborg to continue.
"Then we are sorry, my friend, but our friendship will be put on hold so we could royally kick your sorry ass. You understand?"
"You hurt her, we hurt you twice as much."
"Cause we're her big brothers."
"Heck yeah." They bumped their fists.
"Dudes" Beast Boy began solemnly. "I'm ready to kill for her."
"Good" Robin said with a short nod.
"That's what we wanted to hear" Cyborg friendly patted him on the shoulder, what caused the once green teen to hiss in pain. Only now Cyborg noticed the extensive burns on his friend's back. But before he could ask, Beast Boy merely muttered an explanation.
"Creeper, long story." The tall man only nodded.
"Yeah. So, Freak!" Robin called. "You said something about getting to the game's next level?"
The villain let out a huff. "Yeah, but I got a little bug with it and it's taking long. Stupid crap!" He let out a few more curses.
"Got a lil' problem with the programming?" Cyborg smirked slyly. "I could help you with that."
"Really?!" Freak exclaimed a little too excited. "See, I got this-... Wait." He sounded as if a realization hit him. "Ohohohoh, no way! You're not gonna outsmart me like that! Nice try!"
"Was worth a shot" Cyborg said with a shrug.
"Anyways, I have to deal with this bug first. The game's full of them, it's kind of a beta version."
"Great" the boys said in unison, very unimpressed.
"Please, Control Freak, could you explain our purpose in here?" Starfire asked. "How many levels do we have to complete? Does the game have an ending at all?"
“Sure, after a few levels. Your goal is to complete them all and get your powers back. After finishing each level you have to go through a mini game.”
"A mini game? What mini game?" Robin asked suspiciously.
"Various. The mini games are different at each level. The first one got bugged though..." the villain's voice faded slightly.
“Great” the boys and Raven all said simultaneously. Starfire decided on her trademark, yet uncharacteristically grim 'marvelous'.
"So what are the levels?" Beast Boy asked curiously. The villain chuckled.
"You'll see. It's a masterpiece. I combined a few games and some other things. All based on what the people wanted to see you guys in."
"Wait, the people decide what games we enter?" Raven rasied an eyebrow.
"Naaah. I made a few polls and sent them on the Internet. That's how I decided which universes should be included in my masterpiece so the people would see what they want."
~...~"I remember participating in that poll! I wonder what the results were "
"We're about to find out... once Freak will fix the bug and they'll go further, that is XD"
"I voted for nudity >:3"
"half of the population voted for nudity XD"
"Why do I have an impression his masterpiece is a total crap?" Beast Boy asked no one in particular, making the boys chuckle lowly and the girls both smiled.
"I heard that, wolf boy" Control Freak muttered.
"Yeah, so did the rest of the world" the once green Titan mocked further.
"So what did the people want to see us in?" Robin asked casually, comfortably sitting on the bed next to his girlfriend.
"Well, of course they wanted to see you guys without your powers, dealing with some survival... hm..." he wondered. "They wanted to see you guys naked, of course" he chortled while everyone besides Beast Boy blushed. "They also wanted to see you with different powers, or finding a regular job, or to see which Disney princesses you'd be..." Excluding Starfire, who looked thrilled by the idea, all of them frowned at that. "Although that option I put as a joke... But you know, that kind of crap."
"So, about Beast Boy morphing..." Raven began out of the blue, but Freak cut her off.
"A bug. And I can't even turn him back." Raven sighed in disappointment. Suddenly one of the walls in the room opened to reveal a holographic touch-screen with a wardrobe full of clothes. On the right there was a small platform. "Haha! I fixed it!" Control Freak exclaimed. Starfire squealed in delight and clapped her hands.
"Marvelous! These are my favorite games of all time! Robin, may I?" she asked, wriggling like a child. The team leader remained silent and confused.
"And here comes my 5-yr-old's answer in the poll: normal clothes XD"
"That's your great mini game? Some girly dress up thing?" Beast Boy scoffed.
"Hey, I had to do something for the kids" the villain replied casually.
"Oh, yeah, pornography and violence is sooo appropriate for children" Raven stated in venomous, sarcastic tone. They only heard him mock her in high pitched voice with unintelligible words.
"Alright, I need some clothes" Cyborg said, stepping onto the platform. "Star?" She looked at him with eyes wide as saucers. The dark-skinned man smiled at her. "Give it all you've got." The redhead squealed in delight and hastily walked to the panel, looking through the clothes in the wardrobe.
"Hey, Cy! You got underpants!" Beast Boy chuckled. Indeed, once Cyborg stepped on the platform, Robin's cape has been exchanged for boxers.
"Man, finally!" the young man exclaimed joyfully before frowning slightly. "It's a little too tight though..."
"Okay, friend Cyborg, I believe I have chosen the outfit for you!" Starfire declared proudly.
"Then bring it on, girl, I'm gettin' cold in 'ere!" The girl giggled before pushing her slim fingers on a few clothes of her choice. After she let go of them on the screen, they immediately appeared on Cyborg. A white wife-beater, then blue hoodie and matching sweat pants. Of course sports shoes on his feet.
"Please, does this correspond to your clothing preferences?" Starfire asked adorably.
"Are you kidding me? I feel like I'm in high school again! It's bitchin'! Thanks, Star" he finished with a smile, stepping down from the platform.
"Well, now we know Cy prefers comfy sports clothes"
"Marvelous!" Starfire clapped her hands and turned to the others with sparkling eyes. "Who is the next?" she asked, sticking her gaze directly at Raven, who remained silent and withstood the sparkly look of hope. Instead, Beast Boy got up from his spot beside the ex-empath.
"I might need a little makeover, my uniform's all torn anyways" he said, stretching himself lazily.
"You sure you wanna cover up that burn, man?" Cyborg asked, walking to the bed the rest of them sat on. Despite the fact there were four more beds in the room. "We wouldn't like any infection there."
"Dude, it's all dried by now. One big effing scab. I'll be fine" the wolf-boy waved his hand dismissively and went to the platform.
"He's just showing off for ya, Rae-Rae" Cyborg smirked slyly.
"Yep, cause he's an idiot" she agreed with a smirk. He looked at her and winced, seeing the bruises on her face.
"Jesus Christ, I need to patch ya up. Both of you. I can't even look."
"Then don't." Raven shrugged.
"That's what I'm doing" Robin interjected whilst Beast Boy had stepped onto the platform making his former clothes disappear in favor of male underwear.
"Star, he's fine like that, you can let him go" Raven called. Beast Boy grinned like a fool while Cyborg, Robin and Starfire looked at her as if she grew another head. "What, if everybody knows, I may just as well..."
"You like what 'cha see, mama?" Beast Boy asked with a playful grin and winked at her.
"Ew! I don't wanna hear it!" Cyborg exclaimed in disgust.
"Yeah, I forbid flirting between you two!" Robin ordered.
"What? I need some normalcy..." Raven countered meekly, a small blush creepin gonto her cheeks.
"I'm diggin' this new normalcy!" Beast Boy grinned.
"Friend Beast Boy, are you ready?" Starfire giggled out before sending the outfit his way. He was now wearing a pair of sneakers, dark jeans, a dark blue T-shirt with a white print of a wolf paw and a sweat shirt with a hood and a zipper.
"Looking good, man!" Cyborg praised.
"How do you feel?" Starfire asked quriously. Beast Boy slowly nodded.
"It's unexpectedly comfortable, given that I've got a tail. What happened there?" he asked turning his back to them. His wolf tail was somehow protruding from the jeans. Raven frowned wondering how it was possible whilst Robin and Cyborg scoffed. "Let me guess, textures glitch?" Beast Boy asked knowingly.
"I believe so" Starfire answered him, for the other to guys were struggling to supress the laughter. It's one thing to see a texture glitch in a game, another to see it for real.
"It looks ridiculous" Raven admitted with a deadpan. Beast Boy shrugged, stepping off the platform.
"Meh, I can't complain, it's a comfy glitch for me."
"Lol, Rae's flirting with BB XD"
"Lol, it freaked Cy and Rob XD"
"I agree with Rae-Rae, I could just eat him up :3"
"Raven is so cute, I don't even X3"
"Mwahahahaha! That tail glitch! XD"
Beast Boy stood in front of Raven and looked at Robin significantly. "Dude, scoot over, would ya?"
"So you could sit next to Raven? No, I don't think so" Robin replied nonchalantly leaning backwards and prompting himself on his elbows. Raven gave him an inquisitive look, but he failed to notice, having a battle of death glares with Beast Boy.
"Dude, get your stinky butt up."
Before Robin could counter, his girlfriend called his name. "Ooh, Robin, do come on the platform, I wish to change your clothing next!"
"Thanks, Star, I'm good looking like this" he told her.
"Yeah, Star, don't make him go. Who will be able to defend me from the threat that is Gar, if he leaves his spot next to me?" Raven mocked flatly, making Beast Boy smirk and Starfire giggle. Cyborg slowly shook his head. Robin groaned, pushing himself up from the bed. He took of his utility belt and gave it to Raven. She put it on her lap and patted the empty spot next to her for Gar to sit on. He sat down with a grin.
"I love how they tease and mock each other "
"But Star..." Robin began, already standing in underwear only, awkwardly covering his private parts.
"I know" she interrupted him. "Something casual and comfortable so it would be fit for fighting, if need be."
"I have trained you well" he said proudly, making her let out a gleeful giggle. Soon he was dressed in combat boots, dark jeans, a plain T-shirt and a leather jacket.
"You're fast" Raven said, knowing perfectly it was her turn to stand on the platform. And seeing Starfire's happy face with sparkly eyes only made her not want to go even more. Nevertheless she got up, gave Robin his utility belt back and walked to the platform, but didn't step on it, while Robin already sat down on her spot. "Do I have to?" Raven asked reluctantly.
"Oh, please, Raven!" Starfire whined like a child. Raven groaned and stepped on the platform, her leotard and shoes disappearing, leaving her in underwear only. Both Robin and Cyborg let out short shouts and covered their eyes. Beast Boy grinned and Starfire giggled.
"Here, friend, wear this for a moment" she said, clicking a classic white sundress, which immediately appeared on Raven's body. "Aw, you look the cute! Perhaps we could leave it this way?" she asked hopefully.
Raven's face remained stoic, but once she began her rant, her voice grew more and more aggravated with each word. "Sure. Maybe I could just lose the panties, lay on one of the beds with my legs spread and we could wait for the priest to finally make his wonderful wish come true and destroy the whole world by pushing his juicy d!ck right up my...!" Before she could finish the boys began yelling 'pants' over and over again, efficiently howling her down.
"Right" Starfire said, cutting them all short with profusely flushed cheeks. "Apologies. I just think you look nice in white."
"Yeah, like a corpse bride with that black eye all over my face and all the paleness..." Raven muttered.
"No, you actually look good in white" Robin said.
"Yeah, it suits you" Cyborg added and Beast Boy confirmed with vigorous nodding.
"Well, I don't like wearing white, I feel even paler..." saying this, Raven's sundress changed to fitting dark blue jeans, a periwinkle-colored tank top, then on top of it a sapphire turtleneck sweater with a decently thick collar appeared. "Care for some shoes?"
Starfire hummed, looking at all the choices she had. And she had a lot to choose from. "I am trying to make up my mind... How about these?" she asked, pushing her fingers on a pair. Raven groaned.
"Star, no heels please, you I hate heels."
"But they are so pretty!" the redhead whined.
"Babe, she's got a rapist on her heels" Robin reminded.
"Yeah, what if she has to run again?" Cyborg added. Starfire groaned, let out a hushed 'grebnacks' and changed the shoes to plain sneakers.
"Much better" Raven stated, stepping off the platform.
"Oh, no, friend, please! There are hairstyles, too!" Starfire stood in Raven's way, before she could step off the platform.
"Hairstyles?" Raven repeated with audible reluctance. "Why didn't you have them try hairstyles, too?" She asked, indicating the boys, but once she looked her friend in the eyes... The pleading, sparkling puppy dog eyes... She had to give in. "Damn it, I hate that look!" she stated, folding her arms on the chest, efficiently pushing her breasts up. Starfire clapped her hands and stood in front of the touch-screen again.
"The one that makes you her slave?" Robin asked.
"Yeah, we all hate it" Cyborg agreed.
"I don't know why, but it turns me on when Raven starts raising her voice and swears >///<"
"You have some serious problems man"
"It kind of is cute, there's so much anger in such tiny little person! ;w;"
"Anger is strong with this one"
"Lol, Clash of the Planets fan? XD"
"Raven does look cute in white tho..."
"Yeah, bring the dress back! >w<"
"I'm kind of disappointed."
"why? she looks nice in that outfit. Blue fits her. And she looks great in turtlenecks apparently "
"I don't know, I expected something more goth I guess "
"Lol, you labeled Raven as goth XD"
"What's so funny about it?"
"I just think it's funny people are so quick to judge, is all "
"Just make it quick, Star" Raven sighed resigned. "And Robin, make sure she picks something functional, please. I'm not willing to either eat my hair again or to look like I'm on a catwalk" she said, while Starfire was already trying out hairstyles on her. Waves, curls, high ponytail, two braids (which made her look like Wednesday Addams if not for the blue and not black clothes).... Robin saluted to her without a word.
"But you're made for the catwalk, mama!" Beast Boy grinned and winked at her.
"Cyborg?" Raven said expectantly. Cyborg merely smacked Beast Boy at the back of his head, what made Raven smirk in satisfaction and even Control Freak let out a horse laugh. "Thank you" Raven said in a royal tone.
"Ow, what was that for, mama?" Beast Boy looked back up at her, massaging the sore spot. Before she could answer however, he yelled. "Stop!" All of them froze, looking at him with wide eyes. His gaze however was fixed on Raven. Currently she was looking ridiculous in an afro, fortunately unbeknownst to her. Cyborg and Robin snickered at the sight, Freak let out another horse laugh.
"What?" Raven asked cluelessly. "I'm wearing a ridiculous one, aren't I?" One of her eyebrows rose.
"Star, go back" Beast Boy asked, ignoring the other girl completely, somehow.
"You mean to this one?" The redhead changed the afro for pigtails.
"Huh." Beast Boy tilted his head to the side, as if he was wondering. "Not bad either. But go back again."
"Oooh, the French braid! I thought about keeping it, too" Starfire admitted, clicking the hairstyle they were talking about. Raven's hair immediately turned into a braid falling on her left shoulder, with few lose strands falling on her face gracefully.
"That's the one!" Beast Boy announced. Cyborg nodded with appreciation and the 'not bad' face. Raven glanced down and felt her braid gently.
"Robin?" Starfire looked at her boyfriend, waiting for his decision. Finally he put a thumb up.
"Approved" he said with a smile. His girlfriend let out a gleeful giggle while Raven stepped off the platform with a sigh of relief.
"Lol! That afro! XD"
"rotfl, lmao XD"
"I must have it on my desktop wallpaper xD"
"She kind of looks cute in pigtails"
"Yeah, add a school girl uniform and I can die happily >:3"
"I see Raven in more of a sexy teacher outfit tho. I think it fits her personality more. Star would be more of a school girl "
"True, man. So true "
"Now I'm gonna have wet dreams with the vision of the two of them, damn you! xD"
"Elsa hairstyle! *Q* Looks great on her!"
"That braid fits her very well. Now only get rid of that terrible bruise ;/ *hugs Raven from safe distance*"
"*joins the hug and invites all sexual harrassment victims*"
"Lol, Raven likes her boundaries, you know XD"
"That is why, the hug is from a safe distance X3"
"Your turn, Star" she said, walking to the touch-screen herself and watching her friend happily hop on the platform.
"Friend, could you first find a hairstyle that would put this birdnest to an end?" she asked, pushing a hand through the storm of her red curls, tangling her fingers in it as a result. She winced, trying to get untangled.
"Aw, but I like the curls!" Robin complained.
"Don't worry, I will make you both happy" Raven said, touching a particular hairstyle on the screen. It resulted in Starfire's red locks being tied up in a high ponytail. "Done. The birdnest contained, the curls retained."
"But..." Starfire tried to oppose, but her loving boyfriend cut her off.
"Robin approves!" His girlfriend let out an annoyed huff.
Then Raven made a few quick moves on the touch screen, making Starfire fully clothed: long laced black boots below the knee, black thin tights, frilly red mini skirt with Scottish pattern in black and white and a white short-sleeved blouse. A button-down cardigan on top of it all.
~...~"Oh my, Star is pouting! XD"
"What an adorable creature she is ^w^"
"I like curly hair on her. Why does she straighten it?"
"because it's always like that, lol xD"
"Funny, Raven has a nice fashion sense, but she wouldn't dress like that herself... odd"
"low self-esteem + rapist on her tail... I'd pass too "
"you call that fashion sense?"
"let the shitstorm begin"
"Done" Raven announced, leaving them all astonished.
"How did you decide so fast?" Cyborg asked.
"A had plenty of time while Star was doing you guys. So, jury?" she turned to Robin.
"Approved, absolutely" he said still stunned.
Starfire stepped off the platform and as if on cue, the room began fading away, until they couldn't see anything, but the blinding white.
