Raven sat back, listening to Starfire and Jinx go on about their respective boys. It irritated her, given she was - and probably always would be - still single. But then again, she suppossed girl talk always devolved into talk of boys eventually, and it was interesting to listen to what it was that irritated the girls about their respective boys.
"Boyfriend Robin is wonderful...mostly. But I am concerned that it is unusual for the boy to spend more time primping then the girl does, yes?"
"You think that's bad?" Jinx waved her hand dismissively. "Have you seen the way CYborg goes over his car? Sometimes it seems like he loves that car more than me! It's irritating, I tell you, but what with his tech being sucha big part of him, I'd feel guilty making a fuss over it, so...yeah."
"At least neither of you has to listen to Beast Boy's blather," Raven found herself saying. "It w

Raven sat in the karaoke bar, glaring at Starfire. "I can't believe I let you talk me into this."
"But friend Raven, you said you'd been feeling down. Singing gives the heart wings."
"I am not getting up there and singing."
"COme now, friend Raven, you must, as you say, cut the loosing." Starfire smiled. "I shall go first, and then you will join me, yes?" Not waiting for a response, Star leapt to the stage and grabbed the mike. She let loose with an enthusiastic rendition of "Every Time We Touch."
*Three guesses who she's singing about,* Raven thought to herself. *THen again...maybe it might be fun...* Against her better judgement, she joined Star for the next song, and actually enjoyed singing "Girls just wanna have fun." Then Star selected another song and left the stage.
"This one is yours, Raven."
As the guitar music began, she glared at Starfire. She knew this

Beast Boy walked into the common room, a little dazed. He could see everyone was staring at him, as if they expected him to do something, but he couldn't focus on that. All he could think of was the note he had found slipped under his door that morning.
Please meet me today on the shores of the island at sunset, where the sun will be visible. There's something I want to tell you, that I've wanted to say for a long time.
He was completely poleaxed. He'd recognize the handwriting anywhere. He had no clue what this was about. Sitting dumbly at the table, he started to eat his breakfast...but something tasted off about his cereal. Think about that later...
"WHy are you eating doggy kibble...in goat's milk?"
Beast Boy's eyes went wide, and he spat out his food all over Robin. "Nice, man."
"Sorry, dude." Beast Boy dumped the bowl

Raven sat down in the common room, sipping her tea. It was very early, so no one else was up. She had a lot on her mind these days - most of it about a certain chromatichally challenged changeling, if she was being honest with herself, though she usually wasn't - so she had trouble sleeping. Getting up having finished, she went to the kitchen.
After cleaning hr mug, she noticed something in the trash. Since emptying the trash is the last chore of the night, this meant someone was up earlier. Curious, she took a glance in, and saw a crumpled piece of paper. She'd have ignored it, but the one part that was visible had her name on it. Reaching in, she took it out and tried to unfold it. Taking it back to the table, she smoothed it out, and saw it was a letter to her. Sitting down, she read.
We've known each other for a long time. You've always known me as a r

"I'm telling you! Barbeque chicken is the way to go!" Cyborg screamed. He went into the fridge and got out some uncooked chicken legs and a bottle of barbeque sauce. He smiled, satisfied at the disgusted look on his vegetarian teammate's face. The poor boy looked like he might throw up any second. Cyborg waved the plate of raw chicken under Beast Boy's nose. "Delicious, isn't it?" he taunted.
Beast Boy scrunched up and nose and shoved the plate away. "How can you eat that stuff? It used to be a living and breathing creature!" He crossed his arms and refused to look at his friend as he got out a pot and filled it with water from the tap.
"Yeah, you're right," Cyborg agreed. Beast Boy's ears perked up in high hopes that maybe Cyborg was having second thoughts. He looked over his shoulder to see that the part-robotic teen had a sobered look on

The Teen TItans were rather surprised one day when a rather large package arrived without any return address. Remembering the last time this had happened, they took all possible precautions to determine the nature of the contents before opening it.
Cyborg did a deep scan of the package. "Hmm...nothing that looks at all suspicious..."
Starfire examined it carefully. "It doesn't appear to be dangerous..."
Robin took swabs and ran tests. "Hmmm...no sign of dangerous chemicals..."
Raven scanned it with her magic. "Residue of a transportation spell...which means it got here magically..."
Beast Boy found the final clue. "Huh. It's addressed to Raven."
Raven came up and read the address. "THat's...that's Arella's handwriting."
"WHo's Arella?" Robin asked.
"My mother," Raven replied.
Carefully, they pried the lid off the box. A sheet covered the contents, and a note rested on top.

'...as I walked through the woods, the monster inside consuming my body and soul, I thought back to the dark beauty who made it worth it. She believed in me, told me I was still me, when the monster took over. She made me feel like...I was still a man. But she could only ever be a friend. No matter how much I loved her, she deserved so much better than a monster in the skin of a man. But I would watch her. No one will ever hurt her again.'
Raven closed the book, trying to breathe again. She'd read it three times since getting it. It was a new publication, and was rapidly soaring as a bestseller. It was a tragic love story, a man cursed with lycanthropcy and the human woman - shunned by her village for her dark aura - who saw through the eyes of the wolf to the man inside. Every time she read it, she wished it could end differently, that somehow the love she could see be
Stupid Cupid: BBRaeI'm sitting in my room alone; as usual with a tear stained face. My heart throbs for him. He barely notices I exist unless to scream at me that I'm a freak. I can't help withdrawing from the world. It's not my fault that no one ever loved me or will. I've tried to change; useless. I fall back into old habits. I would be different if someone cared about me. Robin's nice to me but only because he fears me. Starfire likes me but I don't return the favor. Cyborg doesn't really talk to me much. And Beast Boy; he hates me. So I cry and sit in my room alone and depressed. I love him. His emerald skin and eyes make me feel emotions I've never felt before. I find that the more I like him the more I try to hide it; therefore being obscenely rude. I should really just quit the Teen Titans. I don't fit in and obviously make life more uncomfortable for everyone.Stupid Cupid: BBRae5 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

Raven and Beast Boy walked out of the government orphanage. Beast Boy had Melvin clinging to his back, and Teether was in his arms. Raven was carrying Timmy in her arms. All were simply enjoying their new sense of family...and the feeling of completeness it brought them. Beast Boy glanced over at Raven.
"Not that I'm complaining...but how come I've got most of the weight?" Melvin giggled in response, and he made a funny face at her over his shoulder, eliciting more giggles.
"Cause you're the boy, Gar," Raven said with a smile, "and everyone knows that the boy gets all the heavy lifting in a new relationship. It's their responisbility." This last was said teasingly, poking fun at him.
He grinned. "And just what is the girl's responsibility in a new relationship?"

Raven sat in the corner of the common room, reading her book. This was the usual way of events each day. Robin and Cyborg were sitting on the couch playing video games. Starfire was in the kitchen cooking some Tamaranean dish no one else would eat. Beast Boy was...probably still asleep, as it was only 10am.
She just had to think of him and here he was. Not that she WAS thinking of him persay.
-Of course you weren't Raven-
-Shut up, Affection-
Beast Boy glanced around the common room, then looked at Raven. Swallowing as though he were nervous, he walked over and sat down next to her. She watched him for a while, wondering what he was up to. He was being too quiet.
"Hey, Rae," he began.
"It's Raven," she countered automatically.
"Can I tell you a joke?"
Everyone stopped what they were doing and turned around to look at him.
"Bonus points for asking this time, Beast Boy, but no."

Raven sat in Nevermore, at a podium in the center of the realm, at the head of an ampitheater. Gathered before her were all her emotions. A very important issue was at hand, one that would affect the rest of her life. A choice that would determine her future. Even Rage was here, at her insistence.
Raven looked down at her gathered selves. "I call this meeting of my mind to order. Knowledge, if you would present the issue?"
Knowledge started to step forward, but Rage stepped ahead of her. "We all know what's at stake here. They can not be allowed to interfere with what is ours! THey know nothing!"
Raven stared at Rage. THis was the last she expected from her most volatile emotion. She was even more surprised to hear a rumble of agreement from the others.
Bravery stepped forward. "Rage is right. We have to act.

"Alright, everyone, time for today's training schedule..." Robin began, but he stopped. "Where's Beast Boy?"
"Probably still asleep," Cyborg said, rolling his eye. "You know how he is."
"He did seem less than his usual excitable self last night," Starfire commented. "He went to bed earlier than usual, if I recall."
"By three whole hours," Raven commented in an aside, "and he didn't stir the entire night. He usually tosses and turns a bit."
Everyone turned to stare at her. "And how would you know that?" Cyborg asked suggestively.
Raven glared at him. "Empath," she said blandly.
"Well, why don't you go wake him up then," Robin said decisively. "We'll wait."
Raven glared at Robin, then turned and stormed out. Truth to tell, she was worried about the green changeling - not that she'd even admit it to herself - and was glad of the excuse to check on him. Course, she'd never adm

She and Beastboy were secretly dating for about a month.

The changeling had finally worked up the courage to ask her on a date. Thinking it was just a bite to eat or a nice gesture Raven agreed and had the best night of her life.

Walking into the living room, she practically ripped her violet cape off and threw it onto one of the kitchen barstools. Her pale hands balled into fists as she paced back and forth for a minute or two; her lavender hair whipped back and forth with every turn. She felt like screaming but held it in even though there's no one else there.
"I fucking hate him. I don't understand how a person can ACT like that. Stupid-ass." She thought to herself as she slammed her fist onto the granite counter. A crack splintered through the granite and she cursed as her black energy surrounded it, molding it back together. Her thoughts went back to the situation causing her emotions to become almost uncontrollable.
"It was just a fucking accident and he goes and, and, URGH." Her thoughts are flooded with scenes of green grass and warm sun; the sound of Cyborg yelling "FOODS READY" and the face of her green enemy as he left to go get his tofu dogs. She had foll

One day in spring, the Titans were surprised when Raven came out of her room in what looked very much like a blue ball gown. They all sat up and stared. Robin was the first to speak up.
"Uh, Raven...what's with the dress?"
"Yeah," Cyborg said. "Halloween's at the other end of the year."
"Friend Raven," Starfire asked, "are you going on 'the date'?"
Raven rolled her eyes. "I'm going to services." At their stares of mixed shock and vonfusion, she sighed. "Religious services."
Beast Boy got up. He had looked surprised at the dress, but not at the mention of services. "Can I tag along?" he asked.
She smiled at him. "If you can get in costume in the next ten minutes and behave yourself."
He nodded and dashed to his room. Five minutes later, he was back...as the Beast.
Raven blinked for a time, then smiled. "Did you pick that look as a joke, or to match me?"

The Titans had gathered, all of them, for the first time since the end of the Brotherhood. However, this time was different. No one outside the Titans knew it was happening, as the all showed up in civilian garb. While not everyone could make it, everyone who could did.
As the guys all stayed in the back yard - which included a garden AND a pool - the girls gathered around Raven to be showed around the house. Bumblebee, Jinx, Argent, and even Terra showed up to join Starfire in looking at the new house (Kole couldn't make it, but she sent her congratulations. Pantha was with the boys out back.) Terra had regained her memories and was back in the Titans, though she had until recently been trying to get back together with Beast Boy...without much luck. Raven wasn't exactly comfortable having her fiance's ex here at the housewarming, but she was a Titan.

Every once in a while when they were kissing fiercely, Beastboy would shout Get a room! Starfire never understood the joke but Robin did, and he would always drag Starfire out the door to continue elsewhere. While Cyborg and Beastboy would laugh at this, Raven could not help but feel a hint of jealousy.
Since her fathers demise, she was free to feel stronger emotions without the cost of hurting anyone. Secretly she wanted to have someone that she could relate to like Starfire and Robin. She decided that this was a silly thought, the one person that could have related to her was Malchior and she wasnt about to open that book up again. So she decided just to get closer to her friends.

He thought this was odd because usually she would have been in her room the entire day and night of Halloween, and yet, she was actually watching the movies with him, even if she was sitting on the opposite side of the couch. She stayed the whole time and when the marathon ended, she got up and went to her room, leaving Gar to wonder why she had staid, but didn't mention it later. The same thing happened the next Halloween, and the next.

Beast Boy walked down the hallway in the Tower. It was December, and Raven had locked herself in her room again. She did this every year. As soon as Thanksgiving was over, she'd lock herself in her room and wouldn't come out until new years, except for quick meals and missions. He was tired of this. It wasn't enough this year to just go through the usual cajoling, begging, and pleading, only to have her retreat and lock the door. This year, he was going to find out why.
Raising his hand to knock, he paused when his sensitive nose detected a brief flare of sulfur. She had just lit a match. He waited, not wanting to startle her into dropping it. He heard her light a candle and extinguish the match. About to knock again, he heard her begin to chant. It wasn't her usual chant, and it wasn't in any language she usually used for spells. Howev
