Teen Titan Tour Time
It's a sunny day on the Bay and Titans's tower gleams in the light as it watches over the city across the water.
Resembling Frank Loyd Wright's 'Falling Water' masterpiece, the Tower is also a state of the art fortress of technology and a fortified bulwark against those who would seek to contest it's protective vigil.

But that's not really on anyone's mind right now.

Inside, the Titans have assembled, not in response to a dire emergency or immanent threat, but for Pizza!

Superhoy's not the tech head of the team, but he makes for a fun tour guide. Leading their new guest through the many levels of the building (above and bellow ground), he provides an entertaining (if not the most technically accurate) stream of commentary on each of the rooms.

"So yeah, we had to spend a week getting the stains off the walls. I mean I'm glad Raven blew him up, but trying to pick bits of Chemo out of the carpet sucks."

He looks over to Scarab and cocks his head.
"Am I rambling?"

Walking into the main lounge, they are met with an impressive display of Pizza excellence. Bart knows his 'zza.

"Little bit yeah." Scarab says with a chuckle. "When I had to fight this blob-demon-thing, I was pulling bits of ichor out of my hair for weeks." Scarab said, still getting used to the new red-targeting array and everything. When they enter the main lounge, Scarab's jaw drops, "This place is officially heaven."

Bart's only just arrived, really - not that you'd know it from the pizza spread on display. That took him two whole seconds to arrange.

"Veggies and cheese on the left, meat on the right, mixed pies in the middle."

He's got four slices stacked on a plate of his own.

Scarab grabbed a slice of everything, except the veggies, because what's the point of having that crap on a pizza? "I know this really isn't much, but mi madre made a batch of her famous churros." Jaime said, feeling like a little kid on his birthday at school. The a tupperware container filled with the cinnamonny goodness appears in his hand with a flash of light. He opens the container, and the smell of warm pastries filled the air. "The scarab can phase stuff between dimensions and pull them out." He explained, "It pulls them out of time too, so they basically are fresh from the frier."

*Drool*

Just smelling them has Connor floating a few inches off the ground.

"Dude!! Maybe we should have Scarab's mom join the team." he jokes.

"Hey, save one for Robin and the others or fancy feet over there will eat 'em all." he tosses a crumpled piece of paper at Bart's head in good humor.

Superboy adds a churro to his plate and then loads up on the meat-laden slices of Pizza.

Jaime takes a bite of a churro, laughing at Superboy's suggestion. "Trust me, my mom's more than capable of beating all 3 of us. When Peacemaker was going a bit nuts, she just stuck him with a tranquilizer needle the size of a football!" Scarab said, tossing a churro towards Kid Flash. "Don't worry, if he does, I have more interdimensional snacks." Scarab added jokingly, but he did have a few packs of choco's stashed away for an emergency (or if he was hungry).

There is a subtle chill in the room. It's not actually a change in temperature, but it crawls up the spine nonetheless.

The magical sensitivity of the Scarab may well detect it as well. Ancient and Dark, it moves into the room.


"Hello Superboy... Kid Flash." dark eyes gaze from under the heavy hood," and two new souls.

You are the Scarab?"

Her voice never raises above a whisper, but it permeates the room.

The scarab began raving in Jaime's head, beeping frantically in real life, but Jaime mentally told it to shut up for a moment, and it complied. They say you fear what you don't understand, and the Scarab doesn't understand magic. "Yeah, Nice to meet you." Jaime says holding out his hand as a greeting. Something is definately odd about this girl.

{ Identified-Demonic energies originating from "Trigon" Entity, reccommend immediate offensive action }

The Scarab started again, the beeping filling the air, small sparks of crimson energy arcing between his two pincers. "Stop, she's a friend." The energy subsides, but the Scarab begins to protest, but with one more mental assurance, it stops. "Sorry, the Scarab itself is kinda panicky around magical beings. It doesn't know what's going on, and it just get's defensive." Jaime explains sheepishly.

"I'm used to it."

She looks at his hand and then takes it, keeping tight control of her soul-self, lest it panic the curious alien half of this merged being.


Raven scrutinizes the Pizza and then decides to pass on the fare.

Returning her hooded gaze to Scarab she pauses for a moment, and then,
"I sense you have broken away from a dark purpose imposed upon you, seeking to forge your own destiny instead. I understand what that might be like."
From: krypton_or_bust Date: January 29th, 2011 12:35 am (UTC) (Link)
"Heya Rave!" interjects Superboy...in between mouthfuls of Pizza.

"Is'cool Scarab. She's awesome once you get to know her."
From: bluebeetle3 Date: January 29th, 2011 12:39 am (UTC) (Link)
"Yeah. Aliens wanted me to take over the word." Scarab said, completely seriously. "The Scarab got hit by magical blasts and it's database got separated."
kidflash2 From: kidflash2 Date: January 29th, 2011 01:12 am (UTC) (Link)
Contrary to popular belief, there is a bottom to Bart's stomach, it's just that he metabolizes things so quickly, that he's almost always ready for a snack. The churro is gone in a few seconds, and he nods appreciatively to the Scarab before prowling back towards the pizzas.

"I smell food," Rose said as she walked into the room.

While she was a sometimes on, sometimes off Titan, right now, she was on.

And hey, it gave her something to do, at least.

As Jaime takes a bite of a slice of pizza, this silver-haird bombshell enters the room, and his jaw drops. He retains his comppsure quickly, leaning towards Superboy and Kid Flash, "Who is THAT?" He whispers, trying to find out more about her.
kidflash2 From: kidflash2 Date: January 31st, 2011 02:52 am (UTC) (Link)
"Hey, Rose!"

Bat waves and then jerks a thumb at Scarab.

"This is Scarab. Or 'The Scarab'. Not sure if he uses the definite article or not. He's newish. Scarab, this is Ravager, or Rose Wilson."
From: bluebeetle3 Date: February 1st, 2011 11:35 pm (UTC) (Link)
"No 'the'. Just Scarab." Jaime says, and then he turns from Kid Flash to face Rose, "Hey." was all he could think to say. [SlPPERY USER/JAIME] The scarab said in Jaime's head 'The phrase is "smooth", and I'm still wondering where you learned sarcasm. Jaime replied mentally to the alien machine/organism.

"Nice to meet you Bug Boy," Rose said, taking a slice of pizza and sitting down.
From: bluebeetle3 Date: February 3rd, 2011 02:13 am (UTC) (Link)
"Never heard that one before." Scarab replied sarcastically, grabbing a slice of his own. "Least you didn't call me an insignificant cockroach and punch me through a building."
kidflash2 From: kidflash2 Date: February 4th, 2011 04:12 am (UTC) (Link)
"We usually don't do that to the new recruits anymore."

Totally straight face.
From: bluebeetle3 Date: February 4th, 2011 11:59 am (UTC) (Link)
"Are you a team of heroes or a super-fraternity?" Scarab asks jokingly about that little initiation.
beastlyboy From: beastlyboy Date: February 8th, 2011 02:05 am (UTC) (Link)
"We're angry young sidekicks who won't be pushed around anymore!" Holy shit Beast Boy, leaping down onto the nearest open chair by Jamie in his full feral mode, great gnashing teeth and all. "We're all grown up and dealing out justice our own way in a world too dark to care anymore!"

The proto-Animal Man snorts once like some horrible boar-man, and then proceeds to snarf a piece of pizza in one brobdingnagian bite.

"So you can see why we dropped that party line pretty quick." Beast Boy relates in his normal tone of voice, shifting back to his near human form.
From: bluebeetle3 Date: February 8th, 2011 02:34 am (UTC) (Link)
Beast Boy's sudden and angry appearance basically causes the suit to go into battle-mode, a dozen cannons springing out of Jaime's arms and leveling at Beast Boy. The millisecond Jaime realized there was no threat, all the weapons retracted into the armor, and Jaime says, "Holy crap, you scared the hell out of me." After a second he says, "I'm Scarab by the way."
beastlyboy From: beastlyboy Date: February 8th, 2011 05:00 am (UTC) (Link)
"..." Wow that is a lot of gun.

"I am Gregory Peck." Gar gives his best Peck in hopes of breaking the tension, waggling his eyebrows wildly while inspecting the slice of pizza for meat that might have crawled on. He uses his spare hand to offer a handshake. "So what, you aiming to give Cyborg a run for his money in the 'can cram the most guns into an arm' department?"
From: bluebeetle3 Date: February 8th, 2011 08:24 pm (UTC) (Link)
Jaime was a little wierded out at the Gregory Peck impersonation and the eyebrow wiggling was both strange and somewhat hypnotic. Being polite, Jaime shook Beasy Boy's hand, and replied "I'm pretty sure I won that competition."

"And now you've met the reason why our fridge is infested with hummus." Pipes in Superboy munching on a 'Meat Lovers' slice.

"In the 31st century, pretty much everyone is a vegetarian. They make all kinds of synthetic meats out of plant material."

Of course, he says this just after polishing off another pair of pepperoni slices.

"It's not bad."
From: bluebeetle3 Date: February 9th, 2011 08:15 pm (UTC) (Link)
"Great, a world run by PETA." Scarab jokes to Kid Flash, "I'm sure it's not bad, but it's not for me." Scarab says, scarfing down a sausage slice.

A black nose seated on a white muzzle peeks up over the far edge of the table where the Pizza is displayed.

"Whuurff.." *sniff sniff*
From: krypton_or_bust Date: February 9th, 2011 09:18 pm (UTC) (Link)
"Krypto.... no."

Superboy tenses, waiting to see if it's going to be one of those days with the dog.
jla_extras From: jla_extras Date: February 9th, 2011 09:19 pm (UTC) (Link)
More sniffing. Krypto's nose pulls away, but now you can see his big brown eyes, crowned by to perked up ears, peeking over the table.

*blink blink*

"Yeah yeah. You're very cute. No Pizza."
jla_extras From: jla_extras Date: February 9th, 2011 09:22 pm (UTC) (Link)
Something sounding like an exaggerated 'huff' comes from the alien canine (causing the tablecloth to billow momentarily) and the white dog pads over to where Superboy is sitting and flops down. His head resting on his paws, he puts on the best 'most neglected dog ever' look he can muster.
From: bluebeetle3 Date: February 9th, 2011 09:30 pm (UTC) (Link)
"Superdog?" Scarab asks looking at the white dog, the scarab's scanners definately show it's not an Earth dog. Jaime holds out his hand for the dog to sniff and get a sense that he means no harm.
jla_extras From: jla_extras Date: February 9th, 2011 09:36 pm (UTC) (Link)
Those ears bounce right up again and Jaime can feel a slight vibration in the floor when the tip of the dog's tail begins to wag and beat a staccato rhythm on the carpet.

Krypto sits up and begins sniffing intently at the hand, licks it and then sniffs some more. All kinds of new and interesting molecules of smell needed cataloging now.
From: krypton_or_bust Date: February 9th, 2011 09:38 pm (UTC) (Link)
"Now you've done it. He's never going to leave you alone now."

Superboy remarks, scratching behind Krypto's ears.

"Just don't give in to the pity ploy for Pizza though. You do NOT want to be in the same building as a Dog from Krypton with gas."
From: bluebeetle3 Date: February 9th, 2011 09:43 pm (UTC) (Link)
With the image of a dog farting and blowing the windows out of the tower firmly in his mind, he decides not to pity the dog. "I know the 'I'm cute, feed me' trick, my friend had a dog as a little kid, and he did it all the time." Jaime said patting the dog on the head, "Could never say no, but I think I can with a dog whose gas is probably against the Geneva convention."

"So dude. Do your parent know about you and Khaji Da? Do they know about you being Scarab?"
From: bluebeetle3 Date: February 11th, 2011 06:28 pm (UTC) (Link)
"Yeah, I told them right after I got back from my year away." Scarab said, "For a few months my sister was terrified of me and the armor. My mother wouldn't accept that I was really back, something about gathering all the good things about me, making this image of a perfect son, and when I scared Millargo ..."
kidflash2 From: kidflash2 Date: February 12th, 2011 03:25 am (UTC) (Link)
"I guess I had it easy. Ever since I came to this era, I've always been living with someone who has similar powers to mine, so I never had to worry about all that."
From: bluebeetle3 Date: February 12th, 2011 03:37 am (UTC) (Link)
"Lucky you." Scarab says, "Took me a while before everyone got used to it. Especially my sister. She would run away from me whenever I was near. All the same, I wish I had it your way." Jaime finished, nodding thoughtfully before taking another huge bite of pizza.

Cyborg makes his way in from the meeting room, only mildly annoyed that Gar seems to have beaten him to the pizzas.

"I see you've been getting the nickel tour. Nice to meet you, Scarab."
tim_drake_robin From: tim_drake_robin Date: February 22nd, 2011 11:16 pm (UTC) (Link)
"Scarab." Robin calls out as he too enters the room.
"So Superboy's shown you what? The kitchen? Game room? He did get to the training hall and workshops, right?"

*Elbow to Conner.*

Flamebird follows, waving to Scarab before she crouches down, "Hey Kyrpto."

"Mwoof!"
An enthusiastic Kryptonian canine trots over to Bette for some love.

Nightwing pads in after the other senior Titans and finds a spot in the corner to watch. The vague smile he wears doesn't quite reach his eyes. Maybe that's why he prefers the corner.
_bird_of_flame_ From: _bird_of_flame_ Date: February 24th, 2011 05:30 pm (UTC) (Link)
Flamebird reaches out and scritches the dog behind his ears for a few moments. Sometimes it is the simple things that help ease the mind of worry. She gives the dog a smile and then heads toward some pizza herself.
From: aflyinggrayson Date: February 28th, 2011 12:37 am (UTC) (Link)
"So Scarab," Nightwing calls from his corner, the faint smile still there but a little closer to sincere, "your ears been burning?"
