Midnight NoisesRaven slowly brought herself to the very top of her bed in a type of gesture to perhaps...comfort herself?
It was getting to around 2am and she was reading a horror story which she hadn't been able to put down for at least a week. Considering it was based on 'true events' she thought she should at least see if it was actually worth the read. It foretold such things as demonic presences and exorcisms and all of that horrific fantasy nonsense. Of course, Raven believed in the demon side of it considering herself but she never really thought about demonic forces as a supernatural fear. She never really thought about the idea of ghosts or more so, poltergeists.
The book in general told the story of a young girl who was brutally murdered and came back from the afterlife into the realm of the living as an unstoppable demonic ghost who would kill anyone and make them suffer in horrific ways in which she did. It was told that she was not innocent and sweet as she once was in her h

Neither Raven or Gar knew when it started, but one Halloween night, Gar was watching his annual monster movie Halloween marathon when he noticed that Raven was sitting on the far side of the couch. 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. It continued to happen until it became normal, Raven never missed it, and as time went on, she slowly sat closer to him on the couch, it wasn't noticeable at first, but it slowly became clear that she was moving closer each Halloween.

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...

Beast Boy's eyes went wide, and he spat out his food all over Robin. "Nice, man."

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.

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.

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."

"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

"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.

As the guitar music began, she glared at Starfire. She knew this

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

He doesnt usually get up at this hour. she said to herself matter-of-factly. She rose up from her bed, grabbed her robe and headed for the shower, cause god knows she needed one. She and Beastboy were secretly dating for about a month. The couple had spent more time with each other after their trip to Tokyo but Raven never imagined that it was because Beastboy had feelings for her. 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. The whole thing just snowballed from there. The titans knew of only the one time that they went out together but that was it, and they pass
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.

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.

The land of the living saw Halloween as a fun holiday to receive treats and spook friends, it is best considered the holiday you'd spend with friends than family.
What people weren't aware was a realm for darker, far more atrocious than any horror movie will ever portray—this was the realm of what the real Halloween spirit was like. It was a realm with terrorizing victims suffered slow, painful deaths; a realm where heroes did not exist; a world where salvation no longer existed.
Every year, an innocent victim was sacrificed to be feasted, to pleasure, and to suffer at the hands of blood lusting demons.
One of these sacrifice had been an innocent child who had lost both her parents from a tragic accident. She was left in despair, empty, forlorn. City dwellers saw this as a miracle—anot

"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?"

"Uhh " she groaned, staring up at the ceiling, "Damn."
It wasn't like her to get sick, but here she was; with a fever and pain throughout her entire body. Raven took a moment to recollect and then sauntered over to the bureau weakly. After rummaging through a drawer, she found aspirin and took it.
When the medicine took affect she changed into clean clothes, sucked it up, and went out of her room. Raven entered the main room unnoticed, thankfully, and retrieved some herbal tea. Then, she relaxed on a seat that was nearest to the door for an easy escape.
Beastboy was, of course, the first to notice her. He smiled and went over.
