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. Then on the 9th Halloween from when it started
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

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

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.

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.
Wedding DayA church bell rang throughout the surprisingly quiet streets of a once bustling city filled with people that would normally go to work at this time.

A day so perfect it seemed impossible to witness.
It was now 3:50 p.m. and the wide mahogany doors of the church burst open with a great many of stark white doves fighting their way out of the enclosed area. Just as the flock cleared two very excited people ran out, hand in hand, to the awaiting sleek limo ahead of them. Behind the duo a huge swarm of people seeped out of the building and onto the lush green lawn so they could wave the newly weds goodbye.
Upon getting into the limousine, a beautiful red head popped her head out so she could continue waving back at her many guests, her proud new husband joined her. Just as the limo started to move, the dark haired man grabbed

"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."

"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

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

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.
