First-time readers may be confused. If this is the case, go here. Then here. Also here. And for no reason whatsoever, I'll send you here. No, this doesn't have to do with Star Wars. And also, there will be a while where Teen Titans and Avatar will be parallel universes, but only to establish my original Avatar characters. Now, on with the show! TTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT T. It is the most common consonant in the English language. But it is also the shape of a giant building situated on an island, home to a group of superheroes. These heroes are the Teen Titans. Right now, the giant T, referred to as Titans Tower, is home to seven heroes. Anyone reading this story with a brain ought to realize that five of them were Robin, Starfire, Raven, Beast Boy, and Cyborg. The sixth was Terra, whose backstory is way too complicated to explain right now. And the seventh was called Espionage. He could predict the future, he was telekinetic, he had a laser pistol that had several various functions, and he had lightning powers. But you probably knew that. Anyway, the Titans had just finished beating back their own villains, who were just betrayed by the evil Empire. Espionage had just finished with a crowd of fans that he distracted from the Tower. In order to prevent you from falling asleep or leaving to read some other story, I'll skip to where Espionage had gotten back to the Tower and was about to start work on his new universe-merging/separating gun, which had been broken by the Empire's top general, General Gryphus. Espionage went up to his room, got out his tools and the parts of his gun, then started working. About three seconds in, the alarm rang. "Crap," Espionage sighed, tossing his blowtorch aside and heading downstairs. "Let me hope for a couple seconds," Espionage said when he reached the lobby. "There's some threat like Dr. Light that doesn't even need my help to solve, so I could possibly get to work on my weapon." "Uh... not really, no," Robin said, shrugging. "But it is a challenge. The entire Empire is headed for downtown." "Damn Empress," Espionage cursed. "Eh, let's go pick off a few tanks." A:TLAA:TLAA:TLAA:TLAA:TLAA:TLA In the world of Avatar, the second season had just ended. Azula had shot down Aang with lightning, and it seemed that all was lost. Obviously, I'm not going to bother with an introduction with this universe, even though you're less likely to be familiar with it. Zuko barged into Azula's chamber late at night. "You told Father that I destroyed the Avatar," he stated. "Why?" "Well, you needed an edge to restore your honor," Azula explained. "It's too bad that it could all turn to shame if you somehow didn't... or if the Avatar was somehow alive. I think that you lied to me when you said there was no way he could have survived. I think the Avatar actually is alive." Zuko cracked, and the universe changed. "It's true," he said. "The Avatar survived. His Waterbending friend told me she had magical healing water from the North Pole." "Well, then, there's still no need to tell dear old Father." "Why not? You'd normally do anything to usurp me." "Yes, but now I believe that the Fire Nation needs all the motivation they can get. However, I think we should hire assassins. At least have some people looking for him." "Agreed." The siblings bowed to each other, and Zuko left the room. TTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT A battalion of tanks was headed towards the center of the city. General Gryphus' head poked out of the top of one. The Empress, Vice Empress, Kim, and Paranoid Guy popped out of a few others. Then the Titans showed up. "Don't you ever take a break?" Gryphus inquired. "Not when the city is in danger," Robin replied. Kiryu, the Empire's deadly mech, surged forward, his newly attached plasma sword arm glowing. He was followed by Phil, the enormous dragon whose voracious appetite was topped only by his neutron blast breath. "Titans, go!" Robin announced. Espionage grappled with Kiryu, parrying the plasma sword with arcs of energy shields from his gun. Robin shot a grappling hook around Phil's neck, and pulled himself up. The cord tightened, but Phil simply flexed his neck muscles and snapped the puny rope. Robin was caught in midair by Starfire, who shot a starbolt from her eyes at Phil in passing. Beast Boy transformed into a T-Rex and headbutted some tanks, crumpling them. Terra soared into the sky with a boulder and tossed some improvised stalagmites at some bombers. Raven was being specifically targeted by the Empress' tank. "What do you want from me?" Raven yelled at the hatch. The Empress came out for a second to say, "Your heart, on a stick." Then she ducked back down as Raven crushed the front of the tank with another tank. The Empress crawled out of the wreckage and spewed a few grenades at Raven. A:TLAA:TLAA:TLAA:TLAA:TLAA:TLA Aang, meanwhile, had gone through the adventures of "The Awakening." Zuko was just hiring Combustion Man. And Azula had now called up a long line of candidates to hunt the Avatar in her name. She went down the line. Two twins stood motionless at the front. "You two, what are your names?" Azula demanded. "Selt and Samen," they said in unison and in German accents. Azula turned to Samen. "Salmon?" "Nein, Samen." "Nine salmon?" "Nein, Azula. My name is Samen." "Cement?" Samen's nostrils shot fire. Azula smirked. "One mark of a truly great bounty hunter is emotional stability. Becoming infuriated when you're merely asked your name is not stability. Now, you, Salt." "Selt." "Silt?" "Selt." "Celt?" "Selt." "Good work, Selt," Azula commented. "Now, have you ever completed a job without your twin?" "Never." "Another trait of a great hunter is independence when needed. You both may leave." The twins left in disgrace. Azula moved on. "I've heard of you. June, isn't it?" The tracker nodded. "Well, forget it," Azula refused. "I heard you failed against the Avatar." June gave Azula an I'm-going-to-kill-you-slowly look and stormed off. "And you? What do you have to offer me?" Azula asked a hunter who looked like he was really an Earthbender. "My service, my power, and my wits," he replied. "You look a little young for a bounty hunter." It was true; he looked about 16. "You look a little young to be hiring a bounty hunter." "How good of a hunter are you?" "None of my quarries have lived to tell the tale if they weren't wanted alive... or, for that matter, if they were, in some cases." "And how many people would that be?" "More than anyone else has heard about." A violent-looking Firebender burst out from a few places away. "He's not worth your time, Princess," he snorted. "He won't give you a straight answer." "Oh? Are you worth my time?" "I've slain forty men, brought in twenty-two alive. I am Kizade, the Raging Bonfire." "Well, that's something. What is your name?" Azula asked the mysterious one. "Oloshi." "There's a straight answer," Azula mocked. Kizade exploded. "Oloshi, I challenge you to an Agni Kai!" "Fine, I accept," Oloshi answered rather casually. Azula smirked again. "Whoever wins shall be my hired hand. The rest of you can leave, or stay to watch, if you like. The battle begins at sundown."
