We are the Champions, my friends..
They saved the day. They won!
Batman was going to be Debbie Downer about it, but as far as Conner was concerned, they pimp slapped freaking DARKSEID out of Gotham. THAT was a cause to celebrate.

A quick tour of Gotham's skies confirms Robin's search grid and he comes back to Gotham Square where most of the cape and cowl crew had collected. A swoop and an indulgent loop-the-loop and he lands near Scarab.

"Hey bro! Those were some badass moves back there!"

"Thanks man, you were pretty awesome hitting him with that truck." Scarab replied, grinning. "But I can't help but feel Batman's right. We failed to save alot of people." He added, bowing his head a little, remembering the town on the gulf that was attacked by Typhoon. "But we did win." Scarab said, looking back up.

Bart appears, after finishing a sweep of the city.

"We saved a lot of people, not just from dying, but from having their minds permanently enslaved. We did a good job."

"Yeah, we did." Scarab said with a smile. "We kinda rock. I'm Scarab by the way."

Yeah! We kick ass!" Superboy adds with enthusiasm.

"Superboy." he puts his hand out to shake Scarab's hand.

"You handled yourself pretty good out there. You been at this long?"
From: bluebeetle3 Date: January 18th, 2011 08:26 pm (UTC) (Link)
"Almost a year, and boy has it been one HELL of a year." Jaime says shaking Superboy's hand. "Also, just asking, is it normal for supervillains to show up when you do anything? Every time I have a date or a party, some idiot decides it's time for a crime-spree." Scarab asks annoyedly, "Seriously, my now ex-girlfriend and I broke up because of that. Whenever we tried to just be together, Parasite decides to go steal stuff." He continued, and then he stopped, realizing he was ranting, "Sorry, bit angsty I guess." He apologized with a chuckle.

"It's hard to tell in Gotham."
How Robin got so close without being noticed is anyone's guess.

"They're practically like cockroaches here sometimes."

Fiddling idly with the bandage Flamebird set on his arm, Robin joins the group of teen heroes.

"You did good back there."

"I predict victory waffles."
Pipes in Superboy.
From: bluebeetle3 Date: January 18th, 2011 11:01 pm (UTC) (Link)
"Thanks, and waffles on me." Scarab says, looking from Robin to Superboy. "Well, ignoring the evil zombies and the god of the rockbiters, it was a lot of fun working with you guys. Not many heroes in Texas."
kidflash2 From: kidflash2 Date: January 19th, 2011 04:20 am (UTC) (Link)
"Well, Texas isn't all that far from Kansas. The Flashes sometimes swing down that way to fight bad guys, but yeah, I hear it's kinda sparse down there."

"Yeah, most heroes seem to hang on the coasts."

Flamebird seems to have come from the same place Robin did. Who would have thought someone with a costume so loud could be so sneaky?

"Really the only other hero, if you can call him that, was Peacemaker, but he left a few months ago." Scarab added, wondering what his former mentor was doing now.
From: krypton_or_bust Date: January 19th, 2011 05:09 pm (UTC) (Link)
"Hey Scarab, this is Flamebird."
Ok , sort of obvious, but that's Superboy for you. Besides, the Kents were big on proper manners and introductions where in order.

"She 'an Cyborg head up the West Coast Titans...when she's not bandaging up Bat-mite here." Superboy gives Robin a friendly poke.
From: bluebeetle3 Date: January 19th, 2011 08:14 pm (UTC) (Link)
"Heh, Nice to meet you." Scarab said, holding out his hand to Flamebird.
From: bluebeetle3 Date: January 19th, 2011 11:42 pm (UTC) (Link)
As he waits for Flamebirds response, he indicates Robin's arm, and says, "Let me guess, 'You should see the other guy'?"
tim_drake_robin From: tim_drake_robin Date: January 19th, 2011 11:50 pm (UTC) (Link)
Tim cracks a grin.
"We Bat-people have a rep to uphold." poking Superboy back.
From: bluebeetle3 Date: January 19th, 2011 11:53 pm (UTC) (Link)
"I bet." Scarab says, "Must be kinda tough living up to that sort of a rep though."
From: krypton_or_bust Date: January 19th, 2011 11:59 pm (UTC) (Link)
"Or annoying."

returning the punch.

"'Well Batman would do it this way.' 'When I'm with Batman...' 'Hey Batman has one of those.' 'In the Bacave, when we have Batsnacks...'"
tim_drake_robin From: tim_drake_robin Date: January 20th, 2011 12:00 am (UTC) (Link)
"Don't you have a corn field to plow?"

Punch.

"Maybe a dog that needs walking?"


Good to be back with friends.

Scarab chuckles at the banter between the two. Sounded alot like him and Paco.
From: krypton_or_bust Date: January 20th, 2011 12:11 am (UTC) (Link)
"Ok, so dude. You're a teen. We're teens. You're a hero. We're heroes. We've all got a shot in at freakin Darkseid. You should totally come hang with us at Titans Tower."

He looks to the rest. "Am I right or what? We should have Scarab join the Titans. He kicked ass here in Gotham and it sounds like he's been solo up till now."
From: bluebeetle3 Date: January 20th, 2011 12:15 am (UTC) (Link)
Scarab's jaw dropped, he really didn't see this coming. An offer to join the Titans?!
tim_drake_robin From: tim_drake_robin Date: January 20th, 2011 12:16 am (UTC) (Link)
Connor's a spaz sometimes, but he's got a point.

Robin rubs his chin thoughtfully and then stops doing that almost immediately. Ow. He's picked up allot of bruises tonight.

"He did pick up your slack after all." Dodging Superboy's retaliatory poke.

"Ok, ok, Seriously, it sounds good to me. I mean, it's not like we'd have any tests that'd outdo going up against Rockface and his cheerleaders. We'd still have to run it past the head cheeses, but I'm down."

He looks to Bart and Bette. "Guys?"
From: bluebeetle3 Date: January 20th, 2011 12:28 am (UTC) (Link)
Jaime continued to be surprised, unaware if he was peeing his bugsuit or not. He was pretty sure he was though.
kidflash2 From: kidflash2 Date: January 20th, 2011 03:12 am (UTC) (Link)
"The more the merrier. Means we'll have to order more pizza, though."

Bart darts around, looking at the Scarab form different angles.

"So, is that suit alive, or some kind of nano-tech?"
From: bluebeetle3 Date: January 20th, 2011 09:03 am (UTC) (Link)
"To be honest, I don't really know. The scarab itself is kinda welded to my spine, and when I need it it just sort of projects the suit over me." Jaime answers.
From: bluebeetle3 Date: January 20th, 2011 12:25 pm (UTC) (Link)
"Although the scarab itself is intelligent. It talks and everything. Used to be really aggressive, now it's more mellow, kinda like I sorta rubbed off on it." Jaime added
_bird_of_flame_ From: _bird_of_flame_ Date: January 21st, 2011 05:10 pm (UTC) (Link)
Flamebird takes the hand offered to her and sits back during the rest of the conversation. The offer to Scarab join the Titans, coming as it does, causes a moment of cognitive dissonance for her. She hides it, mostly, with a wry smile.

"I don't have a problem with it but I think you'll have to talk to Cyborg about it." Probably Nightwing and Kory and a few others too but, yeah.
From: bluebeetle3 Date: January 22nd, 2011 12:59 am (UTC) (Link)
A grin spread from ear to ear across Jaime's face. He honestly couldn't be much happier. He was getting to (maybe) join the Teen Titans!

{Host/Jaime is pleased} The scarab states, which registers to everyone outside the suit as a series of whistles and chirps.

Jaime replied mentally, since he didn't want them to think he had an imaginary friend, "Yeah, it really feels like we're coming into our own as heroes."

{Perhaps the we/I/you should change exterior. It makes us/I/you resemble Blue Beetle} The scarab replied, again with whistles and chirps.

"What?" Jaime says aloud, and then something happened. The suit began glowing red, and in flash of blinding light, the blue parts of the suit became a metallic red, with the red part of the eyes becoming green. "Holy shit! You could do this the whole time?" Jaime asked the suit, his arms shifting between weapons so he could see what they looked like with th new paint job.

{No, I just learned simple pigment alteration} Scarab said. Even the whistles and beeps sounded sarcastic.

"Am I crazy, or did your scarab thing just blush?"
From: bluebeetle3 Date: January 22nd, 2011 02:36 pm (UTC) (Link)
"No, it changed the color. I thought since we were coming into our own as a hero, we should look like it, instead of looking like Blue Beetle." Scarab said, "I told you it was sentient. I kinda like the red though."
tim_drake_robin From: tim_drake_robin Date: January 22nd, 2011 06:13 pm (UTC) (Link)
Interesting.
Something to look into later.

Outwardly, Robin's face doesn't betray his inner thoughts.

"So technically, we're talking about recruiting a duo then. Cool."

Assumptions were tricky and dangerous. It was better to remember that 'Scarab' was a synthesis of two separate beings. The technological symbiote , and the human host.


"So good to meet you both then."




Very interesting.
From: bluebeetle3 Date: January 22nd, 2011 07:48 pm (UTC) (Link)
Jaime smiles, and the scarab beeps a bit, prompting Jaime to say, "He says hi, and also wants you to know his name is Khaji Da."
kidflash2 From: kidflash2 Date: January 26th, 2011 03:04 am (UTC) (Link)
"What Robin said. Nice to meet you both. Of course, it'll be even nicer once we get some pizza.."

Bart's blatantly hinting now, and that may have been his stomach growling.
