Ichijyo and Raven were playing a game of chess but under the table the couple was playing footsie. While they rarely expressed their affection for each other in public, it was obvious that the two were very much in love. They had plenty in common, like the fact that their powers were more in tuned towards darkness, that they were both psychics, that they had lived with discrimination, and the fact that they were half-breeds. They were a match made in…um…I would say Heaven but that wouldn't be accurate.
They also had another thing in common: intolerance for idiocy.
Takada came into the common room with a bag hanging from his shoulder as he exclaimed, "OK! I've got baby wipes! I've got an assortment of jerky! I have six cans of Tantrum!"
"Oh god…" Ichijyo groaned. He hated that brand. Tantrum was a soft drink with the highest caffeine content ever made.
"Actually, one burnt through the can and I drank the other so now I have four," Takada corrected. He suddenly grabbed a cushion from the sofa and tore it in half, letting the stuffing fly as he shouted, "TANTRUM!"
Cyborg came in next, wearing a soda drinking hat. "Takada! Takada! Check this out! I've got black coffee on the right, I've got Tantrum on the left. Do you have a phone book?"
"Right here!" Takada handed Cyborg the phone book and the half-machine man tore it in half.
Raven's right eyebrow twitched.
"3…2…1…" Ichijyo counted down as the door opened. He murmured, "Here comes Stooge #3." Beast Boy walked in holding a half empty bottle of Tantrum. "Oh…joy…"
"TANTRUM! TANTRUM! TANTRUM!" the three chanted as they jumped up and down and bumped their stomachs together.
Ichijyo put his forefinger and thumb in his mouth and whistled, catching their attention. He said, "I apologize for interrupting this moment in male bonding, but can you please explain to me what's going on?"
Takada answered, "The three of us are going on a road trip."
"To where?" Ichijyo asked.
"We don't know! We're just gonna keep on driving until we run out of gas and see what happens! An unplanned adventure!"
"…Have fun," Ichijyo deadpanned.
"Thanks, we will!" Takada, Cyborg and Beast Boy exited the common room to go down to the garage but Beast Boy backtracked and grabbed a six pack of Tantrum from the fridge before rejoining Cyborg and Takada.
"Nothing good can come from Tantrum," murmured Ichijyo. "That's why I never let Ryuki drink it."
"Tell me about it. I can't believe it's even legal," Raven remarked.
"Considering the fact that the FDA will be running tests on that beverage, it won't be on the shelves for long," Ichijyo retorted. Raven gasped and Ichijyo grinned.
I watched the scene from "How I Met Your Mother" and decided to just write this bit because I was bored. It could expand into a longer story but I just wanted to show that too much Tantrum can make you stupid.
