I do not own Danny Phantom or the Teen Titans
Deep in Ghost Zone an Observant and two guards floated to a darkened jail cell. The Observant asked, "Are you prepared for your trial Vortex?"
Two red eyes pierced the darkness and an unearthly glow revealed Vortex, the ghost master of weather. The insane ghost grinned as he asked, "Are you ready to burn?" A red glow surrounded Vortex as he activated his powers, only for a spectral barometer to shock him.
The Observant smugly crossed his arms and said, "Give up Vortex, you can't possibly escape."
"You know, for ghosts that are suppose to watch the time stream, you don't learn from the past much do you?" The Observant turned to look at the guard whose hand was glowing with pink energy. That was all the Observant was able to register before he and the other guard were blasted into a wall and fell to the ground out cold. The guard removed his helmet to reveal a smirking Vlad Plasmius.
"YOU!" Vortex shouted, having remembered how Plasmius had used him and his powers for his own gain. "What do you want?"
Vlad smirked and replied, "I'm going to free you."
Vortex, not being a complete idiot asked, "An in exchange?"
Vlad just continued to smirk and answered, "Oh, just a little job for you to do."
"JOB! VORTEX DOES NOT JOBS WORM.*Gasp* YOU SHOULD BE GRATEFUL THAT I AM ALLOWING YOU TO EXIST!" Vortex shouted in rage. A hollow threat so long as he was in the cell, but he is insane.
Vlad just smiled and continued, "Oh I think you'll like this job, you see it involves a certain ghost boy you know quite well. Danny Phantom."
Vortex's eyes widened and then narrowed in anger. "I'm listening."
The storm that was brewing outside prevented me from leaving the tower, at least, not without the risk of getting struck by lightning, and trust me, it's not fun. As I came down a corridor I heard Beast Boy laughing. Curious I turned myself invisible and walked up to the green changeling, who was currently holding a balloon next to a giant slingshot.
Beast Boy held the balloon which I was positive wasn't filled with water and said, "This is going to be so sweet."
"What are you doing?" Raven's voice took Beast Boy by total surprise as he barely caught the balloon.
Deciding it would be a good time to reveal my presence I dropped my invisibility, starting Beast Boy even more. "This better not be another one of you're stupid pranks."
Beast Boy puffed his chest out proudly and replied, "Ok it's not a stupid prank. It's a brilliant one." Raven rolled her eyes and I slapped my forehead. Not noticing are expressions he continued, "Ok remember how Cyborg put shampoo and I turned brown for two days?" I chuckled slightly at that memory. Cyborg was really good at pranks. "Well guys it's payback time!" Pulling a set of blueprints Beast Boy went on to explain how his giant slingshot would plant a balloon of oil into Cyborg's face. "Pretty clever huh," Beast Boy asked, obviously proud with himself.
Raven replied, "You're a genius." I detect sarcasm.
"It's just a little clean, good, dirty fun." Hearing a door down the hallway opening Beast Boy grabbed us and pulled us behind a corner.
"I do not think-" Raven started.
"BB that's not-" I tried to say only for Beast Boy to interrupt me.
"Why are we hiding?" A new voice asked.
Beast Boy then realized who the new voice belonged to and turned around with a look of horror on his face. "Cyborg? You can't be Cyborg!"
Cyborg confused asked, "I can't?"
"If you're you then whose-" Before Beast Boy could finish his question the balloon was released towards the unsuspecting victim. Beast Boy tried to stop the balloon, but he wasn't fast enough. The balloon struck a surprised Starfire in the face.
"Starfire!" Beast Boy shouted.
The three of us ran up and Cyborg asked, "You ok?"
Starfire looked at us and asked, "This is punishment… I did something wrong?"
"You didn't." Raven started.
"He did." I finished angrily looking at Beast Boy. I mean of all the things, oil to the face?"
Beast Boy tried to apologize, "Star it was-, you weren't suppose to-, uh." We looked at him expecting him to apologize. "Just remember to change that oil every three thousand miles."
Starfire not at all amused by Beast Boy's attempt at making a joke stood up and began to yell at Beast Boy. "On my planet we have a name for those who do such terrible things! You are a…a klorbag varblernelk!"
"I'm a what bag?"
Cyborg looked down at him and said, "You heard the lady."
I continued, "Star's right."
"You are such a klorbag." Raven finished.
Beast Boy was still trying to defend himself, "Come on guys can't anyone take a joke?" Before any of us could respond the tower shook from the force of the storm.
"Titans!" We all turned around to see Robin standing behind us. "Trouble!"
When we arrived at the bridge a thunderclap shook the cars and the bridge supports. We found two teens in the middle of the chaos. The smaller thinner on had yellow skin, with yellow hair shaped in the form of a lightning bolt. The other bigger teen was blue and had a helmet on his head that looked like it belonged in medieval Japan.
The Blue teen put his hand on the yellow teen's shoulder as he said, "Most amusing."
Their heads turned towards us on the truck they had blasted a lighting blot shape into as Robin said, "Hate to break it to you, but you two have a lousy sense of humor. This ends now."
The two teens got angry and the yellow teen replied, "No one gives orders to thunder and lightning! Taste my power!" Lightning charged up a lightning bolt in his hand and shot it at us. We all avoided the lightning and prepared to battle. Starfire and I fired star bolts and ecto blasts at Lightning, forcing him to run. The two of them ran atop the cars exchanging energy blasts as I flew above trying to hit the yellow teen. He managed to dodge all of our attacks and hit Starfire with a bolt of lightning throwing her off the bridge. Knowing that Starfire would be all right I continued after the teen who tried to hit me with lightning bolts. I managed to dodge most of them, but one got past my defenses and struck me.
It wasn't as bad as some of the lightning bolts I had taken before, but it still hurt a lot. I cried out as I hit one of the support beams and fell to the ground. When I got up Lightning had shocked Beast Boy out of his Panda bear form and was blasted over to a pile of rubble. I charged the teen and shot a powerful ecto blast into his chest, causing him to skid and fall to the ground. I floated over to him and asked, "Not so tuff now are you?" His only response was to growl and release a wall of lightning. I quickly raised an ecto shield and I grunted as I struggled to hold my shield up. Adding another burst of energy to his attack, the teen broke through my shield and once again sent me flying. By the time I had gotten up the two teens had left leaving behind a trashed bridge.
Beast Boy, who had just gotten out of a pile of rubble with his hair smoking said, "Well that was a shock." Starfire ignored him and floated over to us. "I'm guessing you're still mad?" I helped Raven get up as Robin began to give us orders.
"Ok team, we have to find those guys before they do any more damage. Cyborg, search the west side. Raven, Danny the east. I'll take downtown. Beast Boy, you and Star scan from the skies."
Beast Boys eyes widened slightly and glanced at Star. "Um, maybe Cyborg should come with me instead?"
Robin looked at him like he had grown two heads. "Cyborg can't fly."
Cyborg bent down to BB and said in a teasing tone, "Have a nice flight my little klorbag."
Raven and I had searched most of the east side of town when we got a call from Robin. "The Thunder and Lightning are in the forest by the city, regroup there." When we reached the clearing that the brothers were at a giant flame monster came out of the ground.
An old man shouted at it, "Burn it fire! Burn it all!"
Robin then spoke up, "Didn't anyone ever tell you? You play with fire you're going to get burned!" The flame monster roared and released a blast of fire in our direction, which we narrowly dodged. The giant monster ignored us and began to walk to the city, burning anything in its path. "Titans Go!" We charged after the monster trying to get ahead of it. Robin threw a handful of smoke pellets at the monster slowing it down.
Raven flew through the smoke and said, "Flames can't spread if there's nothing to burn. Azarath Metrion Zinthos!" Black tendrils of energy shot out of her hand and tore the trees from their roots, out of the path of the fiery behemoth.
"Good idea Raven!" Robin cried out, "Beast Boy, Starfire, Danny help her out!" Beast Boy morphed into a yak and used his strength to tear the trees out of their roots. Star and I used energy blasts to destroy the trees. But even though we cut off the creature's fuel it still continued towards the city. Cyborg jump down onto the ground and fired his cannon, creating a shock wave that struck the monster head on.
Unable to see anything in the smoke Beast Boy asked, "Is it out?" Just as he said that the monster burst through the flames.
"You just had to ask." Raven said. Robin then began running, not to the monster but behind it. I didn't have time to dwell on this as the beast continued on its path of destruction. Raven flew in front of it and chanted her mantra. "Azarath, Metrion, Zinthos!" Her dark energy stuck the monster, extinguishing its flames. It stood there limp for a moment before it re-ignited its flames and sent a burst of fire, pushing us all back. Before we could all recover a bolt of lightning struck us. The two brothers came to the ground and charged us. Star and Beast Boy also charged them, leaving Raven, Cyborg and I to stop the flame monster.
The monster released a fire blast at us, intending to incinerate us. I quickly fired a pair of ice beams at the incoming projectile, preventing it from hitting us. I gritted my teeth as I tried to keep the flame at bay, but the monster was beginning to overpower me. "I could use some help guys!" Raven and Cyborg then began to shoot at the beast, disrupting its concentration on the flame, allowing my ice beams to hit it. The monster froze over, and I had a sense of victory before it shattered the ice and sent us flying.
Starfire and Beast Boy came to our side with no sign of the brothers. We watched as the monster continued on its path to the city. Cyborg then spoke up, "If those houses go the whole city could go! We got to stop the fire!"
Raven asked, "How?"
I responded, "Any way we can." We ran as fast as we could and managed to reach the houses before the monster. Beast Boy transformed into an elephant and sucked up some water and shot it at the monster. Raven used her dark energy to redirect the flames away from the houses and Cyborg directed the flow of a fire hydrant towards the beast. I fired ice beams at it, trying to freeze it over, while Starfire just floated there since her powers couldn't stop fire. The monster fell back, only to quickly recover and continue on its mission to burn the city.
Just as I thought it was over, it began to rain. The monster screamed and tried to avoid the precipitation, but to no avail. Under the constant assault of the water the monster became nothing but a pile of smoking ash.
As we were cheering for the much needed rain the two brothers approached us in a non-threatening way. As Beast Boy walked up to the two of them Thunder bowed and began to apologize. "I am sorry for the trouble we have made."
Thunder elbowed his brother who also bowed and apologized, "I am also sorry."
Thunder continued, "You have taught us much green one, thank you."
"Don't thank me; thank the one that taught me." Beast Boy pointed to Starfire who walked up to the brothers.
Starfire and the brothers bowed to each other as Starfire said, "And thank you for helping us defeat the flame monster." I winced slightly as a piece of hail hit me in the back of the head.
"Yeah, thanks, but don't you think the hail is a bit too much?" I asked.
The brothers looked at each other and then at me. Lightning replied, "We cannot make hail, only rain." Just as he said that the wind picked up and the hail and rain became much stronger.
Cyborg then asked, "Well what caused that?" Moments after those words left his mouth a blue mist came out of my mouth. "No." I thought.
A familiar insane laughing filled the skies. "I did." My head looked up in shock and surprise as the clouds cleared and revealed Vortex, the ghost weather master.
"Vortex?-!" I shouted, confused at the presence of the insane weather ghost. "How did you escape Observant custody?"
Vortex just laughed and replied, "Let's just say I got a get out of jail free card, now enough of the pleasantries! GHOST BOY PREPARE TO BURN!" Vortex shot a bolt at lighting at me which I quickly dodged by taking flight. He continued to fire lightning bolts at me as I tried to get close enough to him for my ecto blats to have an effect. Starfire and Raven flew up beside me and our hands crackled with our respective energies as we prepared to strike, but before we could Vortex took a huge breath and blew at hurricane grade winds at us, forcing us to the ground. Cyborg fired his sonic cannon at Vortex, but by the time it got to him it was already spent. Vortex simply raised his hand and blocked the attack. He then fired an ice beam at Cyborg in attempt to freeze him. Cyborg tried to dodge, but he wasn't fast enough and his feet got frozen to the ground. Thunder and Lightning took to the skies and shot Vortex in the back. Angry Vortex turned around, "WHO DARES TO CONTROL THE WEATHER WITHOUT MY *Gasp* PERMISSON?"
Thunder and Lightning looked at each other and then at Vortex and responded, "We do!"
"PREPARE TO PAY *Gasp* MAGGOTS!" Vortex then backhanded both of them, causing them to go flying into the hill. Beast Boy morphed into a hawk and tried to claw Vortex's eyes. Vortex fried to swat him away but Beast Boy was too quick. Beast Boy flew back to the ground and returned to his human form. Raven managed to get back up and shot Vortex with a blast of dark energy. Vortex screamed in pain as Raven's dark energy hit him. "AAAAAHHHH!" Raven stopped and Vortex hung his head down and held his hands over his stomach in pain. I tensed and waited for him to lash out in anger, but to my surprise he looked up and gave an evil smile and said, "Bravo, I give you a thunderous applause." Vortex then clapped his hands, releasing a thunder shock wave that knocked the others down. I managed to stay up by throwing up an ecto dome at the last minute. I grew worried as I tried to think of way to beat Vortex. "Pity," I looked up to see Vortex looking down at us, "I was expecting a much more heated battle." Vortex's eyes glowed red as he prepared to incinerate us, but before he could fire a bird-a-rang hit him in the face.
"Then I guess it's time to cool things off." Everyone's heads turned to the voice to see Robin standing with a bird-a-rang in hand. Robin threw it at Vortex's chest, incasing him in ice. Vortex's eyes glowed red and he broke out of his icy prison. Growling in anger Vortex took a shot at Robin who skillful dodged it. I took off from the ground and shot Vortex in the back with an ecto-blast. He turned around and struck me with a lightning bolt. I fell to the ground in pain and looked up just in time to see Robin's staff pass through Vortex. "Note to self: I need to give the others ghost hunting gear soon." I winced as Robin hit the ground hard. I tried to think of a way to beat the insane ghost. "Ok, last time I fought him I had his powers, I don't have that right now, so I need to weaken him but how?" I looked at my belt at all my weapons. "Ghost gloves no, Fenton Thermos not yet, Fenton Peeler n- wait that's it!" I grabbed the peeler and powered it up.
I looked up to see Vortex above us with his hands crackling with lightning, "Your pathetic attempts to beat me have been amusing." A single beep indicated that the peeler was at full power.
"Then I guess you'll find this hilarious!" I shouted as I fired the peeler. Vortex screamed in agony as his powers began to weaken. I stopped firing and looked at Vortex who was clutching his smoking chest.
"YOU'LL PAY FOR THAT BOY!" Vortex raised his hand, only for sparks to come out. "What? I'm... powerless?"
"But I'm not!" I shouted as I charged Vortex. I then delivered his well deserved beating. Vortex fell to the ground and I took out my thermos and sucked him in. The weather cleared and a rainbow covered the sky. I smiled as the others began to get back up. "Villains: 0, Titans: 2."
After we had thanked the brothers for their help in fighting Vortex we gathered at a cliff overlooking the city. A colorful rainbow covered the sky. Robin handed Cyborg something he had picked up during his fight with the old man he told us about.
"So, Slade wants to destroy the city, question is why?" Cyborg said to Robin.
Robin replied, "I don't know, but I will find out, and he won't get away with it."
BB walked up to Star and asked, "So am I still a klorbag?"
Starfire looked thoughtful as she answered, "No I believe you are more of a... milnip wusserloop."
"SWEET!" he cackled as he started dancing. "Go Beast Boy! I'm a milnip! Who's your wuserloop? Huh?" he said before turning to Starfire. "That is a good thing... right Star?" he asked, she simply giggling we all began to leave, leaving Beast Boy hot-footing it back home.
No one's P.O.V.
Skulker phased back into Vlad's lair after invisibly watching the Titans battle Vortex just outside of Danny's ghost sense. Skulker walked up the Vlad who was currently working on a device.
"Well?" Vlad asked without turning around.
Skulker reported, "I got the supplies, but they managed to beat Vortex."
Vlad turned around and smirked, "Oh, I never intended for Vortex to beat them, just to keep them busy while you got the supplies."
Skulker nodded in understanding before saying something else, "I appears someone else is interested in the Titans."
Vlad's ears perked up at this, "Really, who?"
Skulker said, "I heard the name Slade though my directional microphone."
Vlad's eyes narrowed slightly, "Yes, I now who Slade is."
"What should we do?"
Vlad clasped his hands behind his back and paced the room and replied, "For now, just let events play out, once the project is finished, nothing, not even the Titans will stand in my way."
