    Teen Titans: The Musical

    Like This Thread!

    OK peoples, here's my next story. It's not going to be as serious as Vanishing Act, this is more a bit of fun. It's an idea i've been messing with for a bit and I thought I should finally start with it. The prologue is not, in itself, intended to be the best piece of writing I have ever done, it is merely there to serve the purpose of introducing a little bit of the background to the rest of the story. And, as you may have noticed with Vanishing Act, the chapter will improve as I go along (I hope). On with the story. I give you Teen Titans: The Musical!
    N.B. it is advised that yu have seen Fractured before reading this prologue, otherwise you won't undertsand a few things.

    --------------------------------------

    Prologue: Normality Restored...?

    The city had returned to normal. At least as normal as a city filled with super-villains including a giant block of walking cement and a sentient ball of electricity could ever hope to get. Johnny Rancid, after altering reality into a black and twisted former version of itself, had been defeated by the Titans, was now safely locked up in prison, and his bike sold off at a police auction. The citizens of Jump City had returned to their homes, trying to get back to their normal lives after the horrific changes they had lived through; first a horrific Crayola nightmare featuring Godzilla, then the dark oppressive terror of Rancidville.

    The Titans were in their tower. They were giving their farewells to a small, round and cheerful being. He floated gently above the ground, tears in his eyes. He knew he would have to leave now, and he would miss his new friends immensely. He raised a small hand, preparing to leave.

    “Hold on!” a voice said. The small fellow turned to look up at his hero, Robin. Robin continued to speak. “Before you head back home, how about you fix my arm?” he asked, tapping the cast around his arm.

    Larry was dumfounded. “Really?” he asked earnestly. “Another chance? Even though I might mess up?”

    Robin smiled and nodded. “Just give it your best shot.”

    Larry smiled back. He raised his hand, his long gloved finger straightening. He pointed it straight at the white cast. The fingertip glowed yellow as it made contact with the solid covering of Robin’s arm. There was a bright flash. Robin shut his eyes, looking away from his arm. He turned back, and found that he could freely move his arm. The cast was gone.

    “Perfect!” he said, flexing his newly healed appendage. “You did it…umm…” Robin looked around at his surroundings. Or lack of them. He was in a large white expanse, devoid of any objects or life. “Larry?” he called.

    “Heh heh…oops…” Larry’s voice echoed in the white void.

    “Where have you sent me?” Robin shouted. His voice was sucked into the infinite white space.

    “Umm…you’re kind of stuck between your reality and a small unknown one that exists in between some of the bricks of your tower,” came the hesitant reply.

    Robin sighed, placing a hand on his forehead. “Right, just get me back!”

    “Hang on!” The white space glowed a brilliant yellow, before exploding into a cascading fountain of colour. Robin felt himself being pulled forwards at an incredible speed, before coming to an abrupt stop. He was jolted left then right, before being thrown high into the air. He reached the peak of his ascent, before he began to plummet. He cried out, shutting his eyes. Again, he stopped. He could feel ground beneath him. He risked opening his eyes. He yelled in surprise as a large green tiger appeared in his vision.

    “Beast Boy!” he shouted, making to grab the large feline as it morphed into a small mouse and ran off. “Don’t do that!”

    The mouse changed into the teen form of Beast Boy. “Yrros, edud! T’ndluoc tsiser!”

    “You know, those subtitles are real handy,” Cyborg mused, reading the yellow letters that hung in front of Beast Boy as he spoke.

    “Ton ynnuf! Siht si loocnu!”

    Robin sat up, dazed. He patted himself down, checking for any extra body parts he may have grown on the return trip. He sighed in relief when he found he was his normal self.

    “Well, I got to go.” Larry turned around again, ready to leave.

    “What if you’ve changed reality again?” Raven asked morosely.

    “Nah. If it has changed, it’ll wear off.”

    “Ekil ym hcaeps, thgir?”

    “Yeah.”

    Starfire gave Larry a hug. “Farewell small, amusing version of Robin! We shall miss you!”

    Larry’s eyes turned into heart shapes. “I will miss you guys too. Good luck, Robin!” Larry waved his finger, and was gone.

    The Titan’s furtively looked around. The sky was normal, the sea was blue, and the city hadn’t become a child’s picture story. Everything seemed fine.

    “I guess we got nothing to worry about,” Cyborg said. “My scanners say we’re all fine.”

    “My head is not trying to fly away!” Starfire said with glee.

    “I guess everything is back to normal then,” Robin added.

    “Tpecxe ym gniklat, you mean. Wha- hey! I can talk forwards again!” Beast Boy said triumphantly as the subtitles vanished before him.

    “What a shame,” Raven said quietly.

    “Alright ya’ll, inside for some r and r!” Cyborg said, opening the roof door.

    The tired Titans made their way into the tower, failing to notice the quiet music that was building across the water.
    Me: so Luke, you wanna go do something tonight?
    Luke: Can't, I'm meeting charlotte...
    Me: OK, so tomorrow we can...
    Luke: nope, meeting Charlotte.
    Me: Dude, you are totally whipped!
    Luke: I prefer to think of it as self flagellance, actually...

    OK peoples, here is chapter one to Titans: The Musical. I hope you all enjoy. I am sure you can all guess the tune when it comes to the singing. Feel free to sing along with the Titans! Enjoy!

    -------------------------
    Chapter 1: A song in the Making

    The music started gently. It had a soft sound to it, which slowly built in volume before reaching the ears of the startled Titans. They were sitting in the living room, watching the big screen TV. Raven was hovering above the floor, reading a small book that floated gently in front of her. The music crept into the tower, reverberating down the corridors before bursting into the room. Robin looked round at Beast Boy.

    “Turn the music down, BB.”

    “Sure,” said Beast Boy, turning to the stereo. He paused, noticing the power was already off. “Umm, guys, it’s not the stereo.”

    Cyborg looked up. “Well whatever it is, it’s got a catchy beat to it,” he said, tapping his foot to the rhythm.

    The Titans all stood, walking across to the window and staring out at the city. There was no one on the island, so the music wasn’t coming from there, and the city was too far away for even the loudest music to penetrate the tower walls.

    The gentle beat picked up speed, before a gentle guitar plucked into the music. It was all around them, moving through their very bodies, burying deep into their minds. Robin opened his mouth to say something, but his voice spoke different words. In tune to the music. He was singing.

    Robin: When there’s trouble, you know who to call…
    Raven and Starfire suddenly joined in. “Teen Titans!”

    Robin: From their tower they can see it all…
    Girls: Teen Titans!
    Robin: When there’s evil on the attack
    You can rest knowing they got your back
    When the world needs heroes on patrol…
    Girls: Teen Titans, go!


    Cyborg suddenly leapt in.

    Cyborg: With their superpowers they unite…
    Girls: Teen Titans!
    Cyborg: Never met a villain that they liked…
    Girls: Teen Titans!
    Cyborg: They got the bad guys on the run,
    They never stop ‘til the job gets done
    And when the world is losing all control…
    Girls: Teen Titans, Go!
    Teen Titans, Go!

    Beast Boy took up Cyborg’s place as the song continued.

    Beast Boy: If your heart is black you better watch out,
    You cannot escape the team
    When they catch you there won’t be any doubt
    You’ve been beaten by the teens,
    Beaten by those teens!


    Girls: T-E-E-N T-I-T-A-N-S, TEEN TITANS, LET’S GO!
    T-E-E-N T-I-T-A-N-S, TEEN TITANS, LET’S GO!
    T-E-E-N T-I-T-A-N-S, TEEN TITANS, LET’S GO!
    T-E-E-N T-I-T-A-N-S, TEEN TITANS, LET’S GO!
    T-E-E-N T-I-T-A-N-S, TEEN TITANS, LET’S GO!


    All of the boys joined their voices together, the rich mixture of vocals harmonising perfectly with the music.

    Boys: When there’s trouble you know who to call…
    Girls: Teen Titans!
    Boys: From their tower they can see it all…
    Girls: Teen Titans!
    Boys: When there’s evil on the attack,
    You can rest knowing they got your back
    And when the world needs heroes on patrol…
    Girls: Teen Titans, go!
    Teen Titans, go!


    All five raised their voices as the song reached its climax.


    All: 1-2-3-4 go! Teen Titans!


    The music stopped abruptly, leaving the room as quickly as it had come. They were all flushed, breathing heavily as the song ended.

    “Ok, what the heck was that all about? I feel like I’m in a Broadway show!” Beast Boy said, collapsing on a sofa.

    “Yeah, I know. Did we really just…sing our own theme song?” Cyborg asked.

    “I’m pretty sure we did,” Robin replied. “I never knew we had a song…”

    “I don’t sing. I never sing,” Raven mumbled, pulling her cloak over her head.

    Starfire seemed to be the only one who was unconcerned about what had happened. “That was glorious!” she said with glee, jumping up and down and clapping her hands.
    “May we sing another song?”

    “No!” the other Titans yelled at her.

    Starfire stopped jumping up and down, and looked at the ground. “I am sorry, I just thought that was fun…” she mumbled.

    “So why did we just start singing like that? And where’d that music come from?” Beast Boy asked from his position on the sofa.

    “Maybe Larry changed reality again?” Starfire suggested.

    “Ah, that’s probably it. Well, let’s call the little guy and ask him to fix it,” Cyborg said.

    “Not a good idea,” Raven thought aloud.

    “Why not?”

    “Remember the problems last time?”

    “Oh yeah…”

    Raven continued. “Besides, he said it would wear off.”

    “True,” Robin mused, “but just how long will we be singing before it ends?”

    On cue, soft music filtered into the room once more.

    “Oh no…”
    Me: so Luke, you wanna go do something tonight?
    Luke: Can't, I'm meeting charlotte...
    Me: OK, so tomorrow we can...
    Luke: nope, meeting Charlotte.
    Me: Dude, you are totally whipped!
    Luke: I prefer to think of it as self flagellance, actually...

    I was singing along the whole time with my Mp3 Playing. Quite the strange phenomenon. Can't wait to hear (and sing) more.

    Oh...My...God!

    I'm out of my chair and on the floor. That was the funniest thing I have ever read, and I've read alot. Dude, if the next chapter is like this, I'm gonna have to call an ambulance:anime: !!!
    What do you know of death? Have you ever tried everthing in your power to save someone only to have them die in your arms? Do you wake up at night in a cold sweat becuase you keep reliving that moment over and over? When you watch your friend die in front of you, then you can talk to me about death.

    Here's chapter 2. 'Nuff said.
    N.B. the featured song is to the tune of "Hit That" by the Offspring.

    --------------------------------------
    Chapter 2: Can you do the Robot?
    Jump City was in chaos. Never before had something so catastrophic befallen the citizens of the city. They cowered in their homes, afraid of what they might see, afraid of what they might here. But no matter where they went, they could not escape the horror that had entered their lives. Far worse than any of the super villains that had threatened their lives on a regular basis, more terrifying than a lonely Saturday night in front of the TV watching the twenty-seventh rerun of X-files. This was pure fear compressed into a seemingly harmless form, which would spring forth suddenly and cause pain wherever it was found.

    The city was singing. And, though some few people thought it was not overall a bad thing, many others thought it was, for it was those few who thought it was good that amplified the carnage. Not everyone can sing.

    The Titans sat in their tower. Robin paced the room as the other titans followed him with their eyes. He had his hand to his chin and frowned, deep in thought.

    Beast Boy leaned towards Starfire. “Any minute now,” he whispered, “he’ll come up with a plan.”

    Robin shot Beast Boy a withering glance. Beast Boy gulped and cowered behind an available cushion.

    Robin sighed finally. “The way I see it, there are two things that we can know for certain. One: Larry has accidentally changed reality. Two: We are going to be singing until this change wears off, but I have no idea how long that will be.”

    “Maybe it won’t be so long?” Cyborg suggested. “After all, Beast Boy went back to speaking normally after only an hour. At least, as normal as he usually speaks.”

    “Yeah, I – Hey! What’s that supposed to mean?”

    “Stop it, you two! I’m trying to figure things out here!” Robin scolded.

    Cyborg and Beast Boy both cringed. “Sorry, sir!” they snapped back.

    “Perhaps this karaoke spell will not be so bad?” Starfire suggested tentatively. “There is no harm in singing. On my world we often sing Tamaranian folk songs, and many of our people are very happy. Perhaps this will be the situation here too?”

    “Umm…no,” Raven replied. “I don’t like singing.

    “Oh come on, Raven! You have a beautiful voice!” Beast Boy said.

    “Shut up.”

    “Don’t pretend you hate to sing, I saw how much you got into singing our theme song. You were lost in the music!”

    “Shut up.”

    Robin held his hand up for silence. “I doubt this would be like Tamaran, Star. For starters, folk singing kinda died out on Earth a fair number of years ago.”

    “Let’s just hope this altered reality doesn’t know any Tamaranian tunes,” mumbled Cyborg.

    “As I was saying,” Robin cut in, “this is different. We simply aren’t used to spontaneously bursting into song. It’s a shock to so many of us, the reaction could be terrible.”

    “Except for the guys that hang out in karaoke bars,” Beast Boy pointed out.

    “Fine, yes, except for them,” Robin sighed, admitting defeat.

    The soft music that had slowly built around them was getting louder. Beast Boy looked down, and then snapped his head up sharply.

    “We’ve got a problem!”

    “What?” Raven asked sharply.

    “Cy’s tapping his foot!”

    The Titans all turned to see that Cyborg had, indeed, started tapping his foot to the beat.

    “Quick, run before the chorus kicks in!” Beast Boy yelled, diving over the sofa and sprinting out the door, with three other teen blurs speeding behind him.

    Cyborg was too slow, his tapping foot creating a hindrance he hadn’t expect. He was caught by the full blast of the music. A drum was thumped, a cymbal crashed, and he was lost to the rhythm of the music.


    The winds of fortune don’t blow the same
    I had to get out, and make a change
    I was a robot, but way to young
    I wanna party, and have some fun


    I tell ya, I’m on the run
    Fighting just for fun
    You know those bad guys
    Ain’t number one


    I tell ya, I’m on the run
    Fighting just for fun
    I know I’m gonna hit that
    I know I’m gonna hit that, hit that

    All the time I’m going on my way
    Crooks and villains are all in my way
    That’s the way,
    That’s the way life goes, oh oh oh!

    When words do fail me,
    I just go on
    There is no problem
    Sonic cannon
    Well I can fix it
    With politics
    And if I cannot I know that I am always right

    I tell ya, I’m on the run
    I’m fighting just for fun
    You know those bad guys,
    Just ain’t number one

    I tell ya, I’m on the run
    I’m fighting just for fun
    I know I’m gonna hit that,
    I know I’m gonna hit that, hit that

    All the time I’m going on my way
    Crooks and villains are all in my way
    That’s the way,
    That’s the way life goes, oh oh oh!

    When I wind up
    Powered down, circuits crashed and burned
    Well, why not
    Take a wrench; you know you won’t be spurned
    And just don’t stop
    Fixing me, I know it might sound strange
    Well, the more you’re tryin’
    The more rewiring

    I tell ya, I’m on the run
    I’m fighting just for fun
    You know those bad guys,
    Ain’t number one

    I tell ya, I’m on the run
    I’m fighting just for fun
    I know I’m gonna hit that,
    I know I’m gonna hit that, hit that

    All the time I’m going on my way
    Crooks and villains are all in my way
    That’s the way,
    That’s the way life goes, oh oh oh!

    The cymbals crashed twice, and the music ended abruptly. Cyborg sighed with relief as he slumped into the chair behind him. It was over. He had sung, and now it was over. Thank goodness no one heard it…


    “Woo, yeah! Go Cy!”


    Cyborg groaned as the other four Titan’s walked back into the room.

    “Please don’t tell me…”


    “Yeah, dude, we heard you! That was awesome!”


    “That was kind of catchy,” Robin admitted.


    “Truly, that was wonderful! Please, Cyborg, won’t you sing for us again?” Starfire said gleefully.


    “No way am I singing for you guys again,” Cyborg muttered, shaking his head. “Whoever it is who sings next, know this: I will record you and play your song out over the whole of Jump City!” He cackled evilly as Beast Boy and Robin shrunk back. Starfire laughed with joy, enjoying the thought. Raven shot a terrifying glare at Cyborg.


    “Record me and die,” she growled.

    The symbols crashed twice
    Cymbals- sorry about my retentiveness, but as a member of the Highschool Drumline, I cringed at the typo.

    More related to the story...

    I loved it, and if the trend catches on, I can't wait to find out who sings next. Time to download the song, and sing along!

    DISCLAIMER: Illegally downloading music is very bad... but it's a small price to pay for Singing with the Titans! ~

    I thought that word didn't look right when I wrote it! Thanks for pointing it out. I do apologise for that particular mistake, usually I am fairly good with spelling (altho sometimes my speed-typing canlead to letter swaps!). I shall ammend it immediatley!

    P.S. I hope that in your efforts to find the songs that will allow you to sing along with the Titans you do not get into legal trouble. The purpose of this story is not to promote the illegal download of music through the internet. However, should you choose to download good music for free just for a particular song rather than paying the full price for a cd that you may not want anyway and end up wasting your money, then it is your own choice.

    Here is chapter 3 to Titans: The Musical. Thanks to everyone who has reviewed or even read this. More to come! Sing along, folks! (Don't expect too much comedy in this chapter)
    N.B. Today's featured song is "Kids in America." I used the version by "Len", but feel free to use any other artist's version that you feel like reading/singing along to!

    --------------------------------------------
    Chapter 3: Homesick

    Starfire sat in her room, gazing out of her window. She loved her view across the waters, with the city glittering on the far shoreline. She sighed as the setting sun cast an orange glow over the sprawling metropolis. The view was beautiful. A pang of guilt arced through her mind as she remembered her own home. Tamaran. Her home planet had also been beautiful. She felt hot tears sting her eyes as she remembered.

    Soft music seeped into her room. It was gentle, a slow sound that both soothed and excited. Starfire wiped her eyes, brushing away the wetness that threatened to spill onto her cheeks. She quietly sang along to the subtle music, her wonderful voice drifting out into the corridor.

    Looking out a dirty old window
    Down below the waves on the shoreline go crashing by
    I sit here alone and I wonder why

    Friday night and everyone’s grooving
    I can’t feel the heat, I feel cooling
    Stagger on
    I search for a home that I never found

    We young ones are growing
    We young ones aren’t slowing

    I’m a lonely Tamaranian
    I’m a lonely Tamaranian
    Nobody I know is from planet Tamaran

    Bright lights, the music gets louder
    I’d join the others and party with a chance
    I’m not joining them now, lately
    Resistance

    I feel I don’t quite fit in
    Earth ways are something so new to me, every time
    I go out to blend in, just never quite…

    Pure hearts, why should I bother?
    Pure hearts, does it really matter?

    I’m a lonely Tamaranian
    I’m a lonely Tamaranian
    Nobody I know is from planet Tamaran

    Friends with me, I feel much better
    Every day, a brand new experience
    Feeling right
    I don’t want to stop, ever
    Stay tonight

    Outside a new day is dawning
    Outside the city is sprawling everywhere
    I don’t want to leave you all
    Jump city to Titan’s Tower
    This is where my new home is, oh yeah

    Not a lonely Tamaranian
    Not a lonely Tamaranian,
    My new family is right here on Earth

    Not alone
    Not alone
    Not a lonely Tamaranian

    The gentle music faded from hearing. Starfire breathed deeply, the song leaving her being.
    “Star?”

    She jumped at the unexpected voice. She turned to see Robin standing in the doorway.

    “Robin! How long have you been there?”


    “Not long. I could hear you singing from my room,” he replied.


    “Oh, I am sorry if I disturbed you,” Starfire said.


    “You didn’t disturb me, Star. You have a lovely singing voice.”


    Starfire blushed slightly. “Thank you.”


    Robin had heard her singing. He really did think her voice was beautiful. Her singing had stirred things within him he had never felt. Her voice had carried joy and sadness, laughter and tears to him. He had been so moved by her song.


    “You ok?” he asked. “I didn’t realise you felt so out of place.”


    Starfire turned away, returning to her view of the gentle movement of the water.


    “I am fine,” she said, barely hiding the crack in her voice.


    “Would you like to join us in watching a movie? It’s a horror, Beast Boy picked it out, although the singing attendant made things difficult for him.”


    Starfire smiled, still looking from her window. “Thank you, Robin. Perhaps I will join you later.”

    “Ok, whenever you want to just come down. We’ll be there.” He turned to leave. Before he walked from her door, he added, “We’ll always be there, Star.” He walked away, the door sliding shut behind him.

    Starfire sat in her room, gazing out of her window. She loved her view across the waters, with the city glittering on the far shoreline. The view was beautiful.

    This was her home.

    Another great chapter. Luckily, my sister had this CD so I had no need to break any laws in attempts to sing along! I wonder who will be next

    Starfire [x] Cyborg [x] Robin [ ] Beastboy [ ] Raven [ ]

    Lol, excellent! My plan is working! Get all my readers to sing the Titan's versions of the songs! Bwhahahahaaaaa!

    *ahem* glad you like it. Maybe if the creators of the show read this, they may get the Titan's voice actor's to record these songs and make it into an episode? Maybe even release the album? Come on, how cool would that be? "Titans: The musical, the album. Available in store now!"

    Anyways, more to come! *scurrys off to find more songs and write more lyrics*

    I'm not serious about the whole musical/cast voice recording thing! I know it would never happen, i was just saying it would be cool if it did happen.

    Anyways, time for the fourth chapter of this musical extravaganza! Enjoy!

    N.B. Today's featured song is "Private Eye" by Alkaline Trio.
    ------------------------
    Chapter 4: Leads and Chords (geddit? geddit?)

    Robin tapped away at his computer. He scanned the screens before him, reading headlines and studying witness reports. He sighed, leaning back in his chair. It creaked as he shifted his weight. He pinched his nose and closed his eyes, trying to think clearly.

    It had been a while since Slade had surfaced. Robin wondered where he was hiding. What could he be planning? He sighed again, the harsh realisation that Terra was now with him cutting him deeply. They had trusted the girl, thought of her as a friend, and she had betrayed them.

    “Dude! ‘S’up?”

    Robin yelped, startled as Beast Boy suddenly appeared on his desk. He tried to jump backwards, however, still being seated in his chair, he only succeeded in falling over. He groaned from under his seat, the curved backrest solidly placed against his hip and a plastic arm digging into his back.

    “What do you want?” he mumbled, trying to get up as rotating chair base span around, landing solid kicks to his shin.

    “Just thought I’d check up on our glorious leader,” Beast Boy replied, perching himself comfortably on the edge of the wooden desk. “What you working on?”

    Robin finally resorted to using a bird-a-rang to slice through the back of his chair. He stood, and walked over to his computer screen.

    “Slade leads. Need you ask?”

    Beast Boy craned his neck, glancing at the screen behind him. “Typical you, you have a sort of sixth sense for crime, don’t you? Looks like you got plenty of stuff there. Anything useful?”

    “Not really,” Robin admitted grudgingly. “This is all stuff I already know. The only new factor is Terr-”

    Beast Boy stiffened, squeezing his eyes shut.

    “Oh, hey, sorry,” Robin said. “I didn’t mean…”

    “No, it’s ok,” Beast Boy replied, a strained note creeping into his voice. “I gotta get over it sometime, right?” His voice cracked at the last part.

    Robin placed a hand on his friend’s shoulder. “You alright?”

    Beast Boy shrugged away the gloved hand. He jumped off the desk, and walked out of Robin’s room, shoulders slumped low. Robin sighed and shook his head. Terra’s betrayal had hit Beast Boy the hardest. He looked back to his computer, noticing a news update flashing on the screen. He pulled up the file, reading the words that appeared before him.

    A slow bass line crept into his hearing, but he ignored it. It was joined by a low drumbeat, and finally a faster paced guitar. The music’s tempo increased, the sound filling the room. Robin kept reading the news story, humming along with the tune, before finally succumbing to the spell.

    I walked this street, looking for new tips
    Dusted for prints, questioned the public
    Witness accounts and traces of you don’t lie.
    And I’ve been preoccupied with these six strong senses
    That sense your presence on all the defenceless
    Maybe someday, I’ll catch you and put you right where you belong.

    And now I’m back, searching for you again
    Nothing else left unquestioned for certain
    There’s nothing to find, nowhere to think
    ‘Cept the old basement, or the brand new ice rink
    And there’s no ring, ring on my communicator
    No taunting from you, no clues to explore
    Make myself stupid and fry my brain so angrily

    In the wrong place at the wrong time,
    I’ll search for you, but you are just fine
    I won’t tell the cops, just give me the props
    So I’ll catch you one day

    And in the wrong place at the wrong time
    It’d be worth it if you do time
    You won’t have to wait; I’ll be there straight
    To put you there myself
    Into prison

    Swing from rooftops, looking for trouble
    Saving people, homes turned to rubble
    Witness accounts and traces of you don’t lie
    And I’ve been preoccupied with these six strong senses
    That sense your presence on all the defenceless
    Maybe someday, I’ll catch you and put you right where you belong.

    In the wrong place at the wrong time,
    I’ll search for you, but you are just fine
    I won’t tell the cops, just give me the props
    So I’ll catch you one day

    And in the wrong place at the wrong time
    It’d be worth it if you do time
    You won’t have to wait; I’ll be there straight
    To put you there myself
    Into prison
    In the prison



    The music stopped abruptly. Robin sighed as he finished reading the file. It had been an old news story, amended only for spelling changes and a note from the editor apologising for wrong credits. It turned out the news story had been written by a Mr P. Cooker.

    Robin walked out of his room, his door sliding shut behind him. He walked along the dark corridor, wondering where Slade could possibly have gone. It was obvious he had gone to ground, taking Terra with him. He wasn’t hiding, Robin knew this.

    He was waiting.
    Me: so Luke, you wanna go do something tonight?
    Luke: Can't, I'm meeting charlotte...
    Me: OK, so tomorrow we can...
    Luke: nope, meeting Charlotte.
    Me: Dude, you are totally whipped!
    Luke: I prefer to think of it as self flagellance, actually...

    I wasn't going to read this because I thought it sounded stupid, but I have had an epiphany(I know you like the word). THIS STORY ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I can't wait for Raven to sing. As for Mr. P. Cooker, that was pure genius. Keep it up.

    Mr. P cooker doesn't fix mistakes, because he doesn't make mistakes.

    GET IT????

    Naw, im just kidding.

    the best would be if raven (who sounds like she has a frog in her throat) had a beautiful voice.

    at least i think so

    nicely written.

    I personally was expecting Robin to sing something else...but what you made him sing is very good.
    Now that I think of it, I wonder what Beast Boy will sing, 'cause I know you're saving Rae for last...

    Keep writing!


    P.S. As for oneeye.. oops sorry Reid, fine
    Guy 1: Hello?
    Guy 2: Greetings, this is an anonymous message... from Ernest...
