A Knife in a Thief's Pocket #Candlelight-Writers Prompts
I spend most of my life here, in the pocket of this small-time thief. I rarely ever get to come out and it's not exactly the nicest pocket to reside in, is it?
Dirt, lint, chewing gum, empty wrappers, bus tickets and other random crap makes up my living space.
I think I was only ever used once, and that was to cut open a packet of cheese real threatenin' not... That being said, I'd rather cut open a packet of cheese than be plunged into somebody's gut!
If I'm not in his pocket, I'm sometimes taken out to lie on his bed or on top of a desk which has never been cleaned... Sometimes I'm thrown at a dartboard! That's fun.
Until I have to go back into the pocket, of course.
What is this "daylight" that people keep talking about? It sounds nice.
070. JoyBy chicky-the-dragon.deviantart.com070. Joy by *Chicky-the-Dragon
Starfire and Raven
Joy was a three-letter word that Starfire could fully embrace, but Raven could not. Starfire would greet Joy with open arms and oatmeal cookies, whereas Raven wouldn't touch Joy with a ten foot pole. Joy meant Happiness, something which Starfire emanated with such a radiance that it bowled others over. Joy meant Happiness, something that was daunting to Raven whom hid in the shadows. Joy was for Starfire, not for Raven. At best, Raven would greet you with a smirk.
069. MetalBy chicky-the-dragon.deviantart.com069. Metal by *Chicky-the-Dragon
'Fixing the T-Car, fixing the T-Car, fixing the T-Car...' Cyborg sang happily to himself before a certain changeling appeared behind him.
'Yo, Cy! Whatcha doin', buddy?'
'Making coffee! Want some?'
068. BabyBy chicky-the-dragon.deviantart.com068. Baby by *Chicky-the-Dragon
Baby Cyborg wailed and wailed but no one could hear him cry, trapped in a small cage in some remote location that he couldn't remember arriving at. And he was pretty certain that he wasn't always this young. Quite certain.
So what the heck was going on?!
Stage lights sprang to life and baby Cyborg was the star.
Ah, so it was Mumbo's fault. That explained things perfectly. Not that he was happy with this knowledge, and he was craving milk. Great.
067. WrappingBy chicky-the-dragon.deviantart.com067. Wrapping by *Chicky-the-Dragon
In short, the red-haired Tamaranian was a mess. There was wrapping paper, sticky tape and string strewn everywhere in the Titans Tower living room with a ton of glitter and bows to boot. She had not quite grasped the concept of how gifts were meant to be wrapped, but Starfire felt that she was getting somewhere! But by the end of her efforts, there was more sticky tape and paper stuck to her own body rather than on the actual presents. Darn, she was hoping to master “the art of wrapping paper” before Christmas. This could take a while, and she needed a bath.
066. TormentBy chicky-the-dragon.deviantart.com066. Torment by *Chicky-the-Dragon
No one understands me. I am just a freak of nature. A tool to be used and one that has been exploited. I am a puppet, a loser, but I gain from others' losses. I lose something every time I succeed. A slave to Slade, a betrayer of my own kind, and a master of heartbreak. It's time to start over. I must wipe the slate clean and renew my identity.
065. MirrorBy chicky-the-dragon.deviantart.com065. Mirror by *Chicky-the-Dragon
Raven stared at her reflection for a long time before running her hairbrush through her short locks. It was a windy day by the coast and the teenager was not impressed with the mess it left her hair in.
Once satisfied, she was ready to lounge about in the Titans Tower living area with her friends, but an abnormality in her reflection stopped her.
Red eyes glared back at her for a brief second, shocking the girl, until it disappeared as if it was a figment of her imagination.
Shaking her head in disbelief, Raven decided that she needed to stop watching horror movies so late at night.
064. ChocolatesBy chicky-the-dragon.deviantart.com064. Chocolates by *Chicky-the-Dragon
Robin x Starfire
'Boyfriend Robin! Boyfriend Robin!'
'Calm down, Star. What's the urgency? Are you hurt?'
'No! But a dreadful thing has happened and I fear that I have brought dishonour to your people.'
The black-haired teen frowned in confusion. 'I highly doubt that unless you broke the law. What did you do?'
Starfire clutched a thin box to her chest as she wailed, 'I lost the instruction manual for the chocolate delights!'
Robin stared at her for a few moments before cracking into a smile. 'Don't worry. Any chocolates we don't like can just be spit out. You won't be arrested for that.'
To say that Starfire's relieved expression wasn't cute would be a lie.
063. CinemaBy chicky-the-dragon.deviantart.com063. Cinema by *Chicky-the-Dragon
The obnoxious crunching of teeth on popcorn resounded around the almost-empty cinema room. The Teen Titans had decided to take a break by visiting the local movie complex. Luckily for them, the movie they went to see wasn't well-attended at this hour... mostly because it was some dumb cinematic rendering of an obscure children's show that only Beast Boy was aware of and Starfire had begged the others to go with them “for the fun!” If the other teenagers even remotely cared for the motion picture, they would have probably throttled the changeling for being so darn disruptive! Yet today none of them cared. Some of them were happily snoozing in their seats. Bored. Starfire and Beast Boy were the only two whom had left the cinema complex feeling satisfied with “money well spent”. Raven was ready to murder them.
062. SorryBy chicky-the-dragon.deviantart.com062. Sorry by *Chicky-the-Dragon
Robin x Starfire
It had been a long night, but the Christmas party at Titans Tower still raged on as if it wasn't Three AM. Starfire was outside sitting sadly by the dark ocean waters, watching the waves lap over the sand. She sighed mournfully, wanting nothing but to go to bed.
Robin was drinking some punch at the party and suddenly realised that his girlfriend was no longer there. He asked around to see if anyone had seen her. Raven answered, stating that the Tamaranian had gone outdoors for some fresh December air.
Starfire heard footsteps approaching her from behind, but she did not look up until a warm coat was draped over her shoulders. Robin looked at her with concern.
'Is everything alright, Star?'
She remained silent for a moment before whispering, 'I completely forgot what day it was.' Her heartbroken tone pulled at Robin's heartstrings. 'I forgot and never gave anyone the Christmas gifts. Now I have broken the Yule tradit

Beast Boy x Raven
Beast Boy was making a racket in the kitchen and the noise was beginning to tick the Teen Titan Raven off. 'Alright, bonehead, what are you doing now?' she accused, slamming her book down on the couch to march over to the green changeling.
Beast Boy was covered head-to-foot in flour, but seemed oblivious to it. No, he was focused on a jar of chocolate spread, failing to open it up. 'Gngh... Raveeeeennnn! I can't open this darn thing,' he whined, gaining a blank look from the goth.
'Thank you. I'm going to the bookshop. Try not to do yourself an injury,' Raven teased as she walked to the door.
