Jump to the sign-up thread Welcome to the Teen Titans Forum Roleplay —————————————————— Mabel opened her eyes. She was lying in her bed in a corner room of the iconic Titan's Tower standing in the bay off the shore of a bustling Jump City. Without a yawn or a grumble she sat up and swung her legs to the floor. She slid her feet into her slippers and strode out into the commons area of the Tower. Glancing out the huge windows of the Tower over the perfectly serene cityscape, she made her way to the kitchen area, from which the smell of cookies was wafting through the room. "Still five minutes left…" she mused to herself, tapping the time on the oven. She had put the batch of cookies in only 20 minutes ago before taking her nap. "Welp, may as well check up on the city." She hopped over the back of a couch far too big for one person and motioned at a TV far too big for even 20. The screen lit up with several video feeds of the city at a distance and a few different maps with blips of color speckling the landscape. Mabel was very diligent in watching the city. So little happened these days, but still she monitored it as often as she could. She had stared at the same screen only half an hour ago while mixing the batter for her unhealthy afternoon snack. The oven chimed, and Mabel rolled off the couch to tend to it. As she did the TV switched to a local news network. Mabel smirked, hearing the announcement being made. "It's good that they're playing this so often. I haven't had word of any new Titans since they started." The man on the TV said… —————————————————— "Calling all Supers!" A boy on the street swung a foot out and halted walking at hearing this. He turned his head first to the electronics store within which the new broadcast was being played on a stack of TVs, then shuffled over to it and pressed his hands and face to the window. "We know you brave young supers are out there. Jump City needs your help! Today is your chance to prove your worth and do your part to serve and protect the peace of our fine city. If you think you have what it takes to be a hero, head to Titans Tower to be evaluated. This message sponsored by the JC City Council" "Tch" Jun's eyes narrowed. "What an joke." He looked at his hands clasped to the glass and frowned. He stepped back with a hum and put his hands behind his head. "Why would a super ever want to be tied down to one city? Let alone working the city. What could they possibly offer in return for our services. Or perhaps they think we'll do it out of the goodness of our hearts." He started walking away. "Please, there's a reason that tower's been empty for so long." A cheery passerby on the sidewalk caught his last words and connected it to the message on the TVs. "Oh not so young man. The Tower is where Queen Mab resides. She watches us every day. It's because of her mystical ways that we haven't fallen into chaos already." —————————————————— Mabel sneezed and spilled her Mountain Dew all over the front of her shirt. She cursed and tried scrubbing at it with a napkin. "Oh well, it's about time I did my laundry anyway." She took a step toward and slipped on a bit of the soda on the floor, knocking her pan of cooling cookies off the counter ontop of her as she fell. "Whaa—!" —————————————————— "Oh hush, honey. Your full of superstition. If anyone lives there they certainly haven't done anything for us in the past years." said the stranger's partner as they moved away from Jun. Jun shrugged and walked off in his own direction. 30 seconds later the front of the electronics store burst loudly into a shower of fire and glass.
