Inside the Titan's Jet held the entire team excluding Arsenal, Robin believed that he could trust Arsenal with such a mission. He only hoped that he didn’t regret it which he was slowly doing thus the reason to why he asked Huntress to tag along with him. Hopefully, the two of them would be able to even each other out and get the job done. While Robin does his job here and leads his team into what seemed to be another location. Cyborg was able to figure out where was the chip manufactured by Robin himself decided him and his “Team” needed to speak.
So he faked another location just for him and the rest of the team to be alone, as the Titan Jet soared in the air it would soon lower down on a building. To the rest of the Team, this would’ve been a whole mile away from where they were supposed to go. Would anyone ask questions? Would anyone wonder or even pounder to why Robin stopped? Flipping the gears in the Jet Robin would open the hover and step outside his hands behind his back as he looked out to the night sky of Metropolis. Unlike Gotham, Metropolis actually looked beautiful Gotham was too dark and realist. That’s the reason to why Damian loved it so much he felt Metropolis was just as scary but was too afraid to show it’s true self.
It was either that or because they had a six-foot alien watching over them. He wondered what the world would be like if Superman nor his father had been around, would the age of Heroes die? Or would it still find its way to a salvation? He waited for the rest of the Team to come outside with his back facing him he would’ve begun speaking on what was on his mind.
“We all need to talk.. About the future. And what we must do if the worse case happens."
I don't understand humans
L VS T
M'gann had taken a place in the back corner of the jet her legs tucked under her eyes closed as she did her best to keep herself calm and relaxed struggling to remember the way that she had shut the voice out before. She feared that with it talking in her head would only make her that much worse and sadly the worse thing was that the things it said was starting to make more and more sense to her. She remembered having wholeheartedly disagreed with everything that it had said. Remembered when she fought it back instead of complacently trying to shut it out completely afraid to hear the truth in the words that it spoke. As she meditated her skin would be constantly rippling different colors from white to green to a natural human peach. It was as if her mental indication was showing in her form.
Since she had been on she had hardly looked at anyone this seeming to go especially for the shadow contorting female. She hadn't spoken a word to the blue skin pointy-eared woman since she had assaulted her. It was difficult to tell if this was due to the fact that she still lacked in trust for the fellow alien or because she regretted her actions in having done it. Perhaps it was at least a bit of both. She hadn't said a word to anyone however since she failed attempt to explain herself however so it was hard to tell though she did have her mind open and reaching out to the others at the very least to know that she wasn't alone and this would allow particularly strong thoughts and emotions to filter out through their skulls and her mind.
Like an emotion, she would be able to sense that Robin was lying to them and her eyes would slowly open her skin once more settling on white her eyes shifting from green to red before turned them to the leader a bit with confusion. Robin, what are you doing? her mind would prod his with the question. showing that she knew that something was very wrong with the location they where going and she was searching out an answer for this. Not long after this, he would have gotten out and she would have lifted herself from her seat to fallow her head tilting as she watched him. Him and his habits of being mysterious they were rather annoying now. With the situation, they should not be keeping secrets. And what do you call me? the voice chimed in and her eyebrow twitched with annoyance hearing it.
She took her time in fallowing him staying in the doorway of the jet her arms folded her scrutinizing red eyes fixed on the child. Then she heard what he said about them needing to make a plan she had to admit that was a good idea preparing for the worse case. "Worse case is that the ignorant politicians decide to take military action against us and try to blow us all to smitharings... we would likely be forced to fight them if we want to survive... or leave. I don't know about you guys but I don't want to go anywhere," she said the first words that she had spoken in some time.

It had been a long night. Just as it had been a long day before and the night before that. It was questionable if Starfire had much rest, but the tamaranean hardly could tell if she was feeling restless. Though, when they had a boarded the T Jet, it was already very quiet amongst the group and travelling from one side to the other side of the country was going to take a couple hours… At least. So Starfire had taken the opportunity to retire to where there were simple bunk beds somewhere in the jet and laid down. Relaxed and eventually took a nap. To help keep her going for whatever the mission was tonight or wherever Robin was taking them. Starfire hadn’t entirely known where they were supposed to go, to really know if it was faked. She just trusted in whatever Robin had planned… There was purpose behind it and she would go along with it. Even if for a moment she had taken to a little slumber in the back of the jet. Given just how quiet the jet was after how chaotic it was back at the Tower, there was probably anything she missed and actually a little relaxing after everything. Not that Starfire hadn’t left peacefully, the tamaranean surely had very much tried to bring the peace in the tower and move forward. Fighting amongst themselves, just wasn’t what she wanted. Not in the slightest. With everything that was exposed, there was enough attacking them, they really needed each other than anything… Least how Starfire saw it. So she was along for the ride… Where ever Robin was leading. A sleep. Relaxing… Possibly even fell into a dream. A little warmer and sunnier. Feeling it on her golden cheeks, half curled into the pillow in the midst of her tousled red hair. Her body was mildly sore, more just muscle aches from the long day and night, but nothing serious. Though she probably looked like she’d been in a few battles. With still covered in dirt and ash. Covering varies parts of her suit and her exposed skin. There be time later for a shower, surely… As the tamaranean half dreamed of a shower. The warm water washing so many things away and a sweet scent she could almost capture. As she half rattled trying to guess it… Just upon reaching the answer. The Jet had stopped and woke Starfire up.
Slowly coming to in a daze and sitting up she half hit her head on the bunk above. Bringing her hand up to rub it and half steady her head. Before she same to and soon very much awake. Hearing and seeing as the team moved about to leave the T jet. Swinging her legs off the bed, Starfire got to her feet and soon wasn’t far behind following the team out of the jet. Exiting and soon Starfire stepped outside. Her green eyes looked around. She hadn’t paid that close attention where they were suppose to go nor why, but it was a least clear to her. They were in Metropolis. She’d occasionally visited and often flown through it. Given it’s location… It was quite a nice city. Brighter than Gotham, yes, but most cities were. Gotham was like the city you would choose if one likes living in a cave… Sensually. Of course, Starfire did respect that it was true itself for what it is. It didn’t try to pretend and the darkness was real, but yes it was gloomy. Starfire preferred a more frankly warmer setting. Brighter… Hmmm, as Starfire floated shortly behind until Robin would suddenly stop. Stopping them all. Starfire looked up. To the starry sky, it sure looked lovely too. Even the moon was out in its glory here. Her eyes traced particular stars. Many of which she knew of well enough. They were quite beautiful. As her eyes soon came back down to Earth. Looking between the team until landing on Robin as he spoke. Wanting to talk futures and negative outcomes. Both of which Starfire didn’t particularly think about. She’d more be thinking about the present and aiming for peace. Though she was also one to listen and be inclusive. As she looked to M’gann as she spoke… Speaking of possible military action and fighting… Starfire shook her head, she was not here to look for a battle… Not unless that was the last resort. Especially if meant staying on this planet, which yes she did, but she’d rather it by peace not by blood. Her kind wasn’t already the most welcomed and she’d rather not make that worse. She really was the kind that simply wanted to come in peace. Be able to live among friends and help defend the planet. All good intentions.
”I’d prefer to aim for peace first before planning any battles with the government. We are superheroes. We are Titans. We are also people, capable of mistakes… Of course those can be costly, but what footage is out there. Is out there.. I’d suggest owning up to that and reaching out to the public. When it is time to do so. If we have the support of the public, that is quite force in itself, which if you haven’t… You should read the fan mail that is sent… A lot of them just are thankful that we are here and giving them hope… I’d like to mend any broken bridges with the public and try to work for something civil with the government before fighting them. I do very much want to stay here, but with as much peace as possible. As I’d like to continue being able to defend and save the world… Though I do want to find whoever was behind this and show them little to no mercy.”
Starfire spoke forth and added in. Simply looking for more peaceful ways to deal with particularly the government. Suggesting if not now, soon after they would deal with tracking down the person behind this all. Which Starfire was particularly keen to focus on, the present, but she was also keen to mend any bridges with the general public given what was released. Which would have caused a wave of various reactions… Maybe generally now negative towards the titans, but Starfire was sure there was reasons to least look for closure. Forgiveness. Understanding. The mistakes had happened, there was no changing that, but they could move forward as anyone should that made a mistake… Of course these were costly and hardly, but still mistakes were gonna happen, least… It didn’t erase all the good they also did nor all the good Starfire still wanted to give. On top living in this world and calling it home. It be a lot easier to live in more harmony than in war, but these were just her opinions… Her emotions on the matter. She wanted… She generally strived for more positive and right now with all the chaotic. Even the more reasons to do so. Of course, Starfire was still up to following Robin in anything or least almost anything. Hopefully towards more peace, but she always up to fight when called upon… Particularly who ever was behind this whole disaster.

The black before them had a velvet quality, like the air had been thickened somehow. Without an upwards glance Robin knew it was star speckled and cloudless. He glanced downward to the path he knew to be rocky by the feel under his stolen plimsoles to find that twilight was over, other than admiring the constellations above, his eyes were useless until the dawn.
Robin would’ve turned and listened to both M’gann’s and Kory’s reaction to his statement it seemed M’gann was more on board with Robins idea than Starfire. It’s true causing a war with the government isn’t something to do lightly but if it has to be done than Robin would have no choice in the matter. He nodded in agreement to M’gann she got the memo, this Nobody character was really getting under his skin. It seemed like pulling teeth for Damian to not explode he was angry, angry for being steps ahead of this guy. He didn’t even know the man's name but was forced to retreat with the rest of the Titans. He felt as if the weight of the world was on his shoulders especially with Ra’s being around watching him.
Being the son of the Demon doesn’t always have it’s high perks, his eyes now gazed upon the team as he started to say his peace.
“Star I don’t do this job to be liked. My father done his job with thousands of GCPD men hunting him until his death. If I have to follow the shoes of my father, the Batman then I will.. No one and I mean it no one will stop us from doing our job our duty. Im not here to read my fan mail or whatever it is they write. Were either all in on this or all out. But I know ones things for sure if we are not 100% on the same page he will take us out.”
Leader Vs Team
M'gann had her arms still folded over her chest and she slowly looked up to the two again her red eyes seeming ready to burn a hole in either of them at any moment as she looked over the two. "You think that we are still going to be getting bushels of letters proclaiming the city's love for us proclaiming us as heroes. They think we're worse then the villains right now Kory, they want us gone and don't know what the hell that means. They hate us now Kory. You know what else, we where never put here for their approval. We're here to protect them if they like it or not it is what they need. We aren't the Beatles or One Direction, we are not here for the screaming fangirls Kory we're here to be warriors and we are here to fight. So if we have to we will fight the government. If we have to we will fight a war that they won't forget and we will show them even that won't stop us from trying to protect their ungrateful asses," M'gann didn't think that she had ever actually cursed before, they were considered bad words so she considered the words that should not be said but everything was out the window right now with what was going on right now.
She knew she had to be harsh right now. Like she used to be Kory was still so nieve and didn't have the benefit of having a voice in her head to bring her to earth. you could be that voice in her head, you can be the voice in everyone's head shape the world how it should be, this war can be just what you need to make everything just as it should be. the voice chimed in and she agreed. The world was messy and uncomplacent fighting war famine she could stop if she could help them all stop there from being another Logan... perhaps she could find the power she needs to increase her power allows herself to control the men and women of the world. Start with Kory. Start with Kory. Start with KORY. It all starts with Kory.
Peace is the first option, always the first but this isn't something that can call for peace, we will only try and fail. We can save more if we follow Robin, it's the greater good. would be what she would what she would attempt to put into Kory's mind. She would go as far as to even atempt to make it feel like Kory's own thoughts in her head make her believe it was her own idea so that she could listen, so that she would open her mind. Truly believe in all of this the way that she should. The way she did.

There the Tamaranean spoke her peace. Least in a way she thought Robin and Miss Martian would understand. Whether they were thinking Starfire wasn’t on board, they were actually quite wrong and in turn hadn’t listened to what she said… Least not understood what her words meant. She was simply not someone that focused so much on the future and she simply didn’t agree that going straight into battle with the Government was a just thing to do. As long as Starfire had been on Earth, she was still trained firstly by the warlords of Okarra and she’d always return to the base of that. It was engrained within her. One of the main things she was trained was to avoid battle unless absolute that there was no other way, because Starfire was sensually trained to always enter a battle on life or death. Either she or her foe would sensually die. So naturally she was trained to avoid, because going into battle meant putting her and their lives on the line… Of course, having since been on Earth. Many years now and sensually trained to not kill. Because that would be against the law here… It changed some things, but not everything. Starfire may not go into battles on Earth to kill anymore, but she still had that instinct. Thus she always held back. Why she still would avoid battle unless no choice. Especially in this situation. It hadn’t even been 24 hours since the footage leaked. For her it just seemed they were jumping ahead of the situation and not focusing on the situation at hand. The situation with whoever was behind the leak. That was where Starfire’s focus wanted to be on and to put a stop to them. Like she had said. She’d so no mercy to them. Starfire breathed a sigh as Robin spoke. Responding as he did to her words. Not entirely sure he understood what she meant, but likely either way. He wasn’t much on board with her. She wasn’t entirely sure they needed to be, to be able to work together. Differing of opinions seemed a normal thing, not something of a roadblock that they couldn’t work together. She wasn’t trying to work against him… She had merely spoke her mind. As he had requested.
”Nor do I exactly, though I do like a lot of people… I was just pointing out that there are or least was people in the public that looked up to us. Maybe not all, but those who did looked to us for strength. For peace. For safety. For hope. They had trust in us…. Maybe they do hate us now. For what was leaked, it would have least lost their trust in us. I don’t think it’s completely hard to understand why. I’m sure many feel betrayed… I just think it is rash to jump into war against government, law enforcement and the public. Without at least trying to mend some bridges. This doesn’t just affect the Titans, this is likely going to have ripple effect for all Heroes and Vigilantes in this world. Not all operate as Batman did, it doesn’t make it right or wrong. Just different. Some may at times work alongside law enforcement… Hours before what happened at the City Hall. With help from Law Enforcement down south, we were able to uncover a human trafficking operation on an island off the coast of Mexico and saved countless lives. So many, Robin. I’d like that to continue. Even if I do not have your help. I’d least like to try with those who would listen, to try for some peace… Though as I stated, if war does come and we have no choice, but to fight them. Then I will fight them alongside you. I didn’t mean to give you the impression I wouldn’t, I just am not one to seek war unless it comes upon us. I am trained as a warrior. I am trained to use my instinct Robin, I don’t tend to plan. Especially not ahead of time so much. If I want to do something, I just do it or I follow the leader. As well as I feel I should… If Batman and Superman can operate together with their differences, then I do not see how we cannot Robin. I’ve worked with many with even more differences. It’s not that hard to find the common ground and put differences aside or embrace them. I may not be eager for jumping into war against the Government, although believe me there is things I greatly disagree with them on, particularly in their laws and treatment to my kind. I am however eager to find who was behind these leaks and who caused all this mess in the first place. I’d like to bring them to justice. I am not here to work against you. We already have the world against us, there is no need for us to be divided… May I ask what is your current orders, Robin? Why are we in Metropolis?”
Maybe that was clearer. Maybe it wasn’t, as Starfire attempted to try to offer some understanding from her point of view or rather her emotions. She felt how she felt. As she spoke to both Robin and Miss Martian. Starfire would rather try for peace before just jumping into war. After all war wasn’t just a simple thing, it could be deadly. Costly. Now something to just run into unless you are prepared to die and as she mentioned she was someone that planned so much. Not that she couldn’t to some degree, maybe more so since she was on Earth, but she still at the base tended to react as things came. She wasn’t afraid of anything that could come, if she did. As any tamaranean trained to be a warrior would do, was to face it and least hoped her words came out enough to assure. That if they had to fight a war against the public. The law enforcement. The government. Whatever it was, if there no other choice, then she would fight them and alongside the rest of the Titans. She merely references Batman and Superman, to show that differences could still work together. Superman himself operated as symbol of Hope. Batman may rather operate with people being afraid. Yet they could work. Not that Starfire would entirely say she was like Superman, hmmm not quite at all. She was certainly not kryptonian, but despite whatever differences Robin had. Particularly Damian from herself, just wasn’t an issue for her, as perhaps it seemed to him. As he had said, he didn’t do what he did to be liked. Why would he seek that out of her? Not that she disliked him. As Starfire could half smile warmly at him. She likes him a great deal more than he may realise or at the very least respect him. She may not be as eager to jump into future wars, but she was eager to stop whoever was behind this. She greatly wanted to bring them down… Minus killing them, even if somewhere that may still be an instinct for her, she was much better at holding it back these days… She was curious as to whether there was any plans to track that person down or if Robin had any orders right now to give…. Was there a reason they were in Metropolis? As her green eyes looked over the sky to the nearby darkened buildings.
As the goldener skinned tamaranean stood amongst the group. She felt the thoughts M’gann was trying to slip into her head. Lingering thoughts of peace weaved through and that of course spoke true to Starfire’s heart. She had already wanted to strive for peace first, but then thoughts that this wouldn’t be a call for peace… That if they did try, they would merely fail. It caused an uncomfortable ache in Starfire’s heart. An emotion she couldn’t entirely understand why she would be feeling. Let alone feeling it. If M’gann knew anything about Starfire… Particularly, Koriand’r. She’d have some idea of what the tamaranean had been through. All the torment. All the suffering and torture. Experimented on her a body by those who wanted to see how far her body would go before it simply exploded and she would die. Alas, she did not. Because she always vowed, despite even the times she felt that death would have been easier. It would end her suffering. It wasn’t truly what she wanted. She wanted freedom. To appoint she never ever wanted to give up. Even long after… Any battle since put before her or anything in her life. She simply wouldn’t give up. To appoint that maybe that was a fault, but no she wouldn’t give up. She would allow the fear of failure to stop her. This was why she was able to understand. Her emotions. Her thoughts put before her right now, wasn’t her own. She was also tamaranean, a species that openly felt every emotion as if they wore them on their sleeves. They understood emotions in ways humans didn’t. That Kory was able to detect these were not her own. Even if M’gann had attempted to putting thoughts nor emotions into Kory. Kory’s thoughts were tied to her emotions. She was someone that spoke her mind and reacted as she felt. She rarely questioned. She understood and accepted what she felt. She also knew Miss Martian, maybe not as much as she had thought, but enough to know to some degree of her abilities. It certainly left Kory more wondering, why? Were they not friends? It actually hurt Kory that M’gann was more comfortable in trying to manipulate her than simply talk to her.
”I am and will follow Robin… I never said I wouldn’t… However, I also won’t just give up. I never have and I never will. No matter the risk of failure. I never gave up to my sister, I won’t be giving up to my emotions or rather someone trying to manipulate them… I am tamaranean and you are my friend M’gann. If you have something you wish me to know. Talk to me. Freely. Enslaving my thoughts and emotions, isn’t something I take kindly too… I am actually hurt you would, but I can forgive you. I’m sure you had no ill intentions… The world is against us… Please do not try to push me away, if you do care about me as I care about you. If I didn’t. I wouldn’t be here. I care more than you know. Reasons why I want to go after who put my friends in danger in the first place.”
Not that from where M’gann lingered. Starfire had turned and spoke. Perhaps, M’gann could play that Kory was wrong that she hadn’t tried to put thoughts into Kory’s mind, in turn play with her emotions. Kory was almost sure she had and she’d confront her on it. Not in any great defence. These were dire and trying times. It was understandable that many emotions would be running high and perhaps this was M’gann’s way of trying to deal or fix whatever she was trying to fix. Clearly there was something Kory wasn’t saying or thinking M’gann apparently didn’t like. Kory wasn’t going to apologise for that nor change it. It didn’t mean she still couldn’t work with the team. She never said she wouldn’t follow Robin nor work with the team. She was here. Starfire was right here, alongside them. With all there bravery still intact. She wouldn’t run and she wouldn’t give up. She was here for the Team. She was most of all here for her friends. Perhaps such a thing was questionable with Robin, but she had imagined with everything. That M’gann was still her friend… At least Kory saw and cared for M’gann as such. Whilst she didn’t take kindly to the invasion of her mind, Kory could and did forgive M’gann. She was sure there was no ill intention. As Kory even offered a warm smile. Despite however hopeless things may seem in their world right now. Kory still held and felt hope. As she offered out a extend of her hand… If accepted. Kory was open to embrace M’gann with a hug… It had been a rough night, from the beginning and it ended even rougher. Emotions would be trying with many on the team. Even Kory did. She wasn’t a fool to see there was a lot not just on Robin’s shoulders. On all of theirs.
