Sam's return was just a opening, a prequel. I will make the chapters longer, I will possibly create more cliffies, I. Will. Do. Something!
All of us were enjoying the peace. Dani was playing with Silkie, Sam and Raven was talking about what they usually talk about, Star was fixing some type of food from her planet. The last time she forced some into me, and I swear I couldn't taste anything after; it lasted a week! The rest of us was watching TV. My ghost sense went off, and a portal opened behind us. The Master of Time walked into the room.
"Clockwork?" I questioned the Master of Time. "What are you doing here?"
"Just a minute Daniel." Clockwork said.
He then opened a portal, and another ghost came out. (A/N: If you have not read New Problems, do so now before finishing this chapter.) It was a ghost I knew, and I narrowed my eyes. 'The Onyx Knight? But she looks different?' I thought observing the Onyx Knight.
"Hello, Phantom." The Onyx Knight said.
"Clockwork, why is the Onyx Knight here?" I questioned, my eyes still narrow.
"Danny, I know you and the Onyx Knight has issues against each other," Clockwork spoke. "But that is the present Onyx Knight, this is her alternate future self."
"Alternate?" Sam asked.
"Yes, she comes from a alternate timeline." The Master of Time explained. "She mysteriously appeared in my tower, and after I found out someone is disrupting the timelines. This concerns you, Samantha, Danielle," Clockwork turned to the Titans. "and it even concerns you Titans."
"How can we help?" Robin stepped up.
"Come with me to my tower." Clockwork opened another portal.
All of us walked in, and many of the screens he used to observe time was everywhere. We all looked at everyone of them, and one of them was one Sam, and I know to well. His timeline.
"How many alternate timelines are there?" I yelled.
"More and more is poping up. Like one where you never defeated Freakshow, the Ghost King, Undergrowth, and Dan. As for the Titans there are timelines where Robin became Slade's apprentice, Raven never defeated her father, you never defeated Terra and Slade, Brotherhood of Evil, and many more." Clockwork said.
"What's that one?" Beast Boy asked, pointing to one of the timelines.
"That is one where Daniel did become Princess Lotus's husband." Clockwork replied. (A/N: Again you must read New Problems to know Lotus.)
That one caught my attention. "What!" I yelled. Everyone was quiet, staring at me. I looked at the timeline very closely, and Clockwork was right, I was standing next to Lotus. I looked back at Clockwork, and I was about to say something, but Sam beat me to it.
"Please tell me that was after we got her on our side." Sam said desperately.
"Actually, that is the timeline I come from." Onyx Knight finaly spoke. "Yes, we fought you three, but her highness managed to get to Danny. She made him see the way she did toward humans. In that timeline they control ghosts and humans, they're that powerful."
All of us stared eyes wide at the timeline.
The Titans stared at the timeline, then back at Danny, and then back at the timeline.
"Danny, Titans, I fear that if these timelines continue to be altered then we will have serious problems." The Master of Time said. "I will send you to certain timelines to obtain information on anything or anyone causing these problems."
"You got it Clockwork." Danny said.
"Just what timeline will you send us to first?" Raven asked curiously.
"Let's start with the small and go to the big, yes?" Clockwork stated.
Everyone nodded. They watched as Clockwork looked around the timelines, and seen one he liked. Clockwork then turned to the Titans.
"Let's do a little test run. Titans go to that timeline, and fix the problem. Daniel, Samantha, Danielle, I want you to help me observe some of these timelines." He said.
He then brought the timeline to the screen it was branching off, and the Titans dove into it.
The Titans appeared in front of a circus tent, a very gothic circus tent. Being Beast Boy, he had to joke.
"I bet Raven would like this circus." He said.
Raven sent the green changling a death glare, and he backed off. They walked into the circus, and sat down to watch. A man with a long red staff, a red ball on the top off the staff, stood in the center ring.
"Please turn your attention to the highwire!" The man said.
The Titans looked at the highwire, and a man in a cloak, and hood stood there. Robin tried not to watch the act, but he feared he might have to.
"He puts the 'death' in death defying acts! The Grim Reaper himself!" The crowd started cheering.
The Titans watched as the man walked on the rope with a scythe in hand. Robin eyes were filled with worry for the person. The man placed the scythe on rope, and used his hand to balance on the blade. The Titan's eyes were wide, except for Raven's, who was narrow. She noticed the scythe wasn't exactly touching the rope, but floated a bit too look like it was. Raven decided to silently get up, and search. She entered back stage, and looked around.
"What are you doing back here?" A man asked.
Raven turned around, and it was the man from earlier in the center ring. She eyed the glowing staff, then back at the man. "I didn't mean to wonder back here." She said.
"But why were you?" He questioned.
"I've been looking for something that might be weird, or off." Raven replied.
"That would consider everything in this tent." The man said, and laughed.
Raven knew something was really off about the man. She started to walk off, but bumped into the 'Grim Reaper'. The hood came off, and Raven recognized the person in front of her.
"Danny?" Raven stepped back, eyes wide.
She noticed the man's eyes narrow at her, then he turned toward Danny.
"Get her." The man ordered.
Raven's eyes widen as Danny walked up to her, and swung the scythe at her. She dodged the attacks, and used her powers to throw anything she could at him. The man's eyes widen at her use of magic.
"Stop." He said.
Raven watched as Danny stopped attacking, and sent her gaze over to the ringmaster.
"How is it you are able to do that?" The man questioned. "You couldn't be a ghost could you?"
Raven used her magic to teleport out of the tent. The Titans ran up to her.
"Where were you?" Robin asked.
"Danny." Raven replied. "The 'Grim Reaper', is Danny."
The Titans' eyes widen at Raven's finding. All of them turned their gaze to the tent.
"If Danny was the performer, then that must be a Danny alternate." Robin said observably.
Then Danny appeared out of nowhere, with four other ghosts at his side. The Titans readied themselves for an attack, but the ghosts moved out of the way. The man then walked up to the Titans.
"Found you. Now who are you?" The man said.
"Depends, who are you?" Robin said.
"I. Am Freakshow. You should know that." He said. "Minions! Attack!"
Danny and the other ghosts then charged for the Titans. Raven held off Danny, and noticed the crystal ball. Once she managed to get Danny out of the way, she used her magic to encase the staff to take it out of Freakshow's hands.
"No! Give me my staff!" He yelled.
Raven then smashed the orb into the ground. Danny and the other ghosts stopped attacking, and their eyes turned to normal.
"What? I'm free?" Danny asked.
"We're finaly free?" The smallest ghost asked as well.
"Yes." Robin said.
Raven watched as Danny's eyes were full of happiness, but it turned to worry, and sadness.
"M-My friends... They... They think I'm gone, dead." Danny said, his eyes downcast.
"Prove them wrong, and go show them." Raven said.
Danny looked at the sorceress, and walked up to her. "Thanks you."
The Titans watched as Danny flew into the air, and then turned their gaze to the ringmaster. Their eyes widen when he was beaten by the other ghosts. A portal opened near them, they walked in, and into Clockwork's lair.
"That went... well." Beast Boy said.
"That timeline has a lot of catching up to do." Danny joked.
"Yes, now that was just a little test run." Clockwork said. "Anyone could of broke that crystal ball."
Clockwork then looked at the timelines for one that would be most suitable for them to go to. The Titans stood by Danny waiting for the next one they would go to.
First Chapter! Done! Now I don't know how long it will take me to update this story, but I will.
