9:59 AM God. I can’t believe I lost so much time. It feels strange, you know? I woke up and it completely freaked me out.

10:02 AM I wonder if Eddie’s up. Is he up? Perhaps I’ll check.

10:03 AM Dammit, this is why I can’t live in Titans Tower. I get ridiculous. I’ll probably do something stupid like tell him how I feel, after which he will run away terrified and uncomfortable, and I’d really prefer it if he didn’t.

10:06 AM You know what? I am going to find something to do. I am going to sit here and figure this out until I have something else to do. Hmm. I could…practice my magic? I certainly need to improve if I can be taken down quite so easily. I mean, I’m probably the best there is at illusions and what have you—well, aside from Zatanna, but what are you going to do, you know—but I need to not get knocked out by a girl and a bunch of rocks. Seriously. She must’ve caught me off guard or used some sort of underhanded trick. I am better than that. Aren’t I? I should be.

11:44 AM This is pointless. I am going nowhere and accomplishing nothing. Perhaps I am lacking imagination, but I doubt it. Zatanna would help me out with this, I should think. Didn’t she live around here at one point?

11:45 AM If they couldn’t find her when I was in the hospital, I’m not going to find her by poking around San Francisco. My best bet is probably to call Sebastian, I guess.

11:48 AM God, he never answers. Asshole.

11:51 AM I suppose I’ll book a flight to Gotham and check out the library at Shadowcrest. They might have something worth reading. It would, at least, be better than nothing.

3:32 PM So Eddie came and found me, and we had quite a nice lunch together. He wanted to know about my tour, what I’m going to do, and all of that. It was sweet, really. I wish I actually knew what was going on. My tour has been cancelled, which Bunny has kindly informed me, so I told him I’m planning on studying for a bit. Of course, being Eddie, he wasn’t entirely sure why I would want to study in the first place. Honestly, as though he hasn’t stayed up all night practicing his firebreathing or whatever it is that he does now. Portals? Really? He practically burns a hole through the very fabric of space and time. He assures me it’s safe, so I’m not going to comment. But, I mean, really. What else can he do now? Conjure up fiery demons to dance for his amusement? Why does he get a powerup? I mean, I was brainwashed. It’s only fair.

3:40 PM I booked a flight for two days from now, which means I have to stay here for two more days. I’ll have Bunny get me a hotel so that I don’t go absolutely insane. I swear, I am this close.

6:24 PM Goddamn Titans dragging me to their goddamn fights. You’d think they could handle a simple robbery without making me come along. So what if she had a robot suit? They have a guy in an alien bug suit! Surely they don’t need me for, and I quote, crowd control. Plus they made me repair all those buildings. They could have asked. God.

6:25 PM Now they want me to have dinner with them. Ugh. Well, I suppose. Eddie will be there, after all. I just hope no one gets too bothersome, otherwise I won’t be held responsible for what I’d have to do.

7:59 PM That wasn’t too bad, for the Titans. The food was good, anyway. They ordered in from some Chinese place. Eddie had to go and get it, apparently. He can fly and teleport. I mean, come on. It’s a little excessive. Perhaps we’ll watch another movie tonight, or possibly some television. I will find something to do. Something that wouldn’t involve my feelings.

11:18 PM So I’ve found I can pretty much tolerate these Titans, providing none of them open their mouths to speak. Except for Eddie, of course, although he’s really more suited for standing around and looking pretty. Thankfully I will be out of here shortly. Afterwards I can kidnap him and we can go do something that has absolutely nothing to do with the Teen Titans.

Hehe, oh Zat. He'll need to learn Eddie's not just suited for looking pretty. Tsk tsk. Though, I always approve a good kidnapping scheme. >>;; Nice work.

It's not high on his list of priorities, to be honest.

Oh, Zat. I'm surprised he has yet to mention Eddie and Jaime's bromantic adventures of fun-ness.

He bitches about them in the earlier days. Right now, Eddie is still kind of fussing over him, and Zach doesn't have much cause for complaint. Once Eddie starts spending time with the other Titans again, Zach will start being grumpy again. Still, though, Zach is very much the best friend from back home (Tim has the Bats and whatever remains of his Gotham friends, Jaime has Traci and his awesome supporting cast, Cassie has the Wonders, the YJ girls, and Kara, but Eddie just has Danny and Zach), and Jaime gets that, being the well-adjusted young man he is. I do want to find a way for Paco or someone to mention the bromance in Zach's presence, as it would be glorious.

Oh, I can just hear Zat spluttering in indignance already. Maybe there's a problem in El Paso and Eddie and Zat are the only ones in the Tower? That'll give Zat two things to bitch about: having to give up alone-time with Eddie and having to use Eddie's new power-up portals instead of being able to teleport himself to El Paso. Not to mention the hell that will go down once Jaime and Eddie start using their nicknames for each other.
Also, my original files for all my Eddie/Zat stories seemed to have fallen off the face of the earth, so I may just copy/paste directly from fanfiction.net.

You know, I think something like that might have to happen, if only because Jaime's supporting cast is the best thing in the world and I want to see them get their hands on darling Zachary.

Please do so! shadow_crest needs more fic.

As I command, you must write.
I want to see Brenda and Zat snark at each other so badly, I'm actually in pain.

Also, I'm WORKIN' on it! Jeez Louise oh Pete!
