"Raven Arella Xavier! Daughter of Trigon the Terrible! Behold, the Arch Demon Agathor, your executioner!"
Raven sighed, rubbing her forehead. "Again while I'm in the bubble bath...Well, if I send you back, will you stay gone? Or do I have to kill you?"
"Umm..." The demon seemed at a loss. He had expected rage, fear, or possibly embarrassment, since she was naked in the bath. Not...resigned boredom.
"I mean, I'd really rather not have to splatter someone else...demon blood is impossible to scrub out of linoleum. I had to take it all up and replace it." She stared irritatedly at the walls and floor. "And I hate the new pattern..."
Now the demon was worried. She didn't even seem concerned with him, and...splatter? "Umm...if it's not too much to ask, who did you splatter?"
"Oh, that one demon with all the X's in his name, I don't remembe

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 and Beast Boy were cuddled up on her bed. She had refused to let go of him the entire party, not that he was complaining. They were both finally at peace with themselves...and each other. There had been a few curious glances directed their way, but they didn't care.
He smiled down at his love. "So Raven," he started quietly, "wanna tell me what happened?"
She looked up at him and smiled. "Didn't Dr. McCoy teach you better tact?"
He chuckled. "Sorry. Couldn't think of a better way to ask."
She smiled. "Well, no, I don't want to tell you." At his hurt expression, she chuckled. "I'd rather show you."
He blinked, but he understood when her eyes began to glow, and images flooded into his mind.
Raven stalked across the barren, scarred landscape. "Trigon!" she shouted out. "This is YOUR domain, I know you're here!"

Raven stood, staring at herself in the mirror, holding the boquet. At her white dress.
She never thought it would actually happen, but today was the day. She'd loved him since she was small, and today, they would be together forever.
There was a knock at the door. "Yes?"
Her Uncle Eric stepped in. "They're ready for you, dear."
She nodded, and rested her hand on his arm.
"You're beautiful, you know."
She blushed. "Thank you."
Eric led her into the aisle, and music started to play.

Beast Boy sat on the shores of the island, staring up at the Tower. Gently, he struck a chord on his guitar. He hadn't worked on his music for a while...but then, he hadn't had a reason. Now, all he had were reasons. Gazing up at Raven's window, he sighed and struck a chord.
"I've heard there was a secret chord
That David played and it pleased the Lord"
He thought of how much he tried to do for Raven, how much he tried to make her laugh, to smile.
"But you don't really care for music, do you?"
But every time, she just pushed him away.
"It goes like this
The fourth, the fifth
The minor fall, the major lift"
He tried so hard...but what did it do for either of them?

As he kept playing, his mind wandered to the past.

He thought of how weak he'd felt, after leaving the Doom Patrol.

Raven set the flowers down at the foot of the statue that was once a person...an enemy? A friend? A rival? She wasn't quite sure how she viewed her anymore. She turned to Beast Boy. "Will...she ever change back?" Normally, she'd be the one who knew the answer to that question...but her knowledge of mythical creatures was limited.
Beast Boy shook his head. "Never. A basalisk's gaze is permanent. You know...if she'd had just a hair's more control...something worth fighting for...she could have done this herself, turned herself to stone and freeze the volcano."
"How would that have been any better?"
"Then there's all sorts of magic and even mundane cures that could have been used to free her...or she might have managed it on her own." He sighed. "But now...she's trapped forever. Nothing will ever free her."

Beast sat on the porch, sipping tea with Xavier, discussing recent events. "SO how goes Raven's training, Professor?"
"As well as can be expected, Hank. Her magic is growing, and her skill at manipulating it is impressive. But...her mind shields, while more than effective at keeping out any mortal probe, aren't enough to keep her father out. I've attempted to help her strengthen them, but...he breaks through every time."
"Perhaps it is the shape of the shield. He gets into her mind so easily, perhaps it is not her mind he is striking through."
"You suggest he might be striking through their blood connection?"
"Blood is a very powerful force for demons, according to my research. And there are those parts of Raven's bloodwork we were never able to analyze."

Trigon continued to roar his triumph, power cosmic coursing through his veins, blood dripping from his fanged mouth. He roared again, and again, and the world shook with his roars.
As civilians, villains, and heroes alike quaked in respone to his roars, Raven sighed. Leaving her lounge chair, she floated up to his forehead, conjured a giant hand of dark energy with two fingers extended, and whacked him on the temple, right below his horn.
"Ow!" Trigon said, rubbing his forehead, and things slowly returned to normal.
"Okay, old man," Raven said, glowering at him. "YOu did your job. Now you can go home."
"Aw...you don't want me around anymore?"
"No, I don't want you frightening the civilians."
Trigon seemed to notice he was the center of attention. "Oh. That's a problem then?"

Charles and Eric had been working hard, each in there own way, to help Raven in what they both now knew was coming. Charles had been working with Raven, helping her to develop both the strength and control of her powers, while consulting a few mages he knew with how to proceed in training her skills.
Eric's approach was different. In between everything else he was doing, he scrounged the world for every book of magic and spells he could get his hands on, everything from the crafting of a golem to throwing fireballs to summoning elementals. First he'd go through them for anything that could be used against Trigon. If he didn't find anything, he gave the book to Raven to add to her spell library.
Of course, not all the books she received from her Uncle were spellbooks. Some were bedtime stories and fairy tales. When he broguht those, he would always read them to her. Not that she couldn't

Cyborg was working in the garage of the Titan Tower. For once, though, he didn't actually have a major project. He was just puttering around. His last major assembly was the bike he gave to Jinx. Finally, he knew he had to actually do something besides continuously crank the same bolt on the same tiny device.
"Jeez, at the rate I'm going, next time the grass stain bugs me down here, I'll yell, 'BB! Get out of my laboratory!' Then again, he'd probably get a real kick out of that." Chuckling to himself, he went to turn on the radio. Poignant strains of guitar music filled the garage, and once again he was put in mind of the pink haired witch that was so on his mind. Then the first of the lyrics came.

The sun was long gone and the moon had taken its place. Everyone else was tucked in their bunks, fast asleep. Or, so you thought. Unable to sleep due to the unbearable heat, you had crawled from your bed and headed outside in hopes of catching a cool breeze. Though it was late, the moon was incredibly bright. Because of this, you were easily able to see the silhouette of someone standing at the edge of camp. Walking as quietly as you could, you did your best to go unnoticed until only inches away from the figure. “Hello there Armin, what are you doing out so late? I thought we were all supposed to be inside hours ago.”
The sound of your voice caused Armin to jump back a full foot. Once he realized who you were, his fear unsatisfied. Despite that, he tried to remain friendly and somewhat calm. “Oh it's you. I didn't see you. Sorry I jumped like that.”
“Oh that's quite alright, I was trying to sneak up on you anyway.”

“I'm actually not at all homicidal, I don't even know what you're talking about. Everyone seems pretty relaxed and happy to me.” After quickly feeling around the pot, you picked your item. It was a thick, heavily stylized piece of paper, with the name Akito, written right in the center. “Well this made things easy enough.”
“That's the only thing that's going to be easy.” Shigure seemed a little worried by your item. “If you wanted to pick something else out, I'd let you. Just do it quickly okay?” He tried shoving your item back into the pot, but was stopped by Akito grasping his wrist.

“Yup, as ready as I'll ever be.” You walked up to where he was standing and dropped your hand inside the bucket. There wasn't a whole lot inside, so you were easily able to tell what you were picking. It was a bit of cloth; but what was printed on it worried you slightly.

Nagato looked up at you, and slowly stood from the couch. “That's my item.” He walked over to you, looking drained, tired, and rather emotionless. “I apologize, I doubt I'll be as much fun as some of the other candidates.”

“Hmm, there are a ton of items in here.” You felt around, looking for something interesting. “I have a feeling someone might have put multiple items in here.” Deciding on an item that you couldn't recognize, you lifted it from the bucket “I, don't know what this is.” It was a very smooth rectangular rock.
“That, is a whetstone. It's used for sharpening blades.” Zabuza slowly stood from his seat and walked over to you, taking the block from your hand. “It's very important for me to keep one of these at all times. I couldn’t live up to my name with a dull blade, could I?”

The once-beautiful platinum room was now a dull, sheen-less silver color. The two red velvet curtains hung behind the throne on either side. The right was shredded to pieces as if a cat had clawed it down. The left was set a flame, slowly being engulfed with fire, as of the rest of the room.
The black haired princess propped her left elbow on the throne's once-golden arms and idly looked at the smiling girl in the picture. She debated whether she should crush it or drop it on the floor, to let the flames swallow it up into dark crumbs of ashes. But another idea struck her.

Afraid of losing you and not ready to let go.
Pain hits my heart every time you say that it's not my fault.
Wanting to hold you in my arms and cry myself out of tears.
Telling you all my hates and fears.

Hearing your crying I rush to your side.
Taking you hand and telling you everything will be alright.
But sometimes the one who you see as prince charming can become clouded.
So you start to wander and try to leave the feelings of being doubted.

I am the punk rocker mixed with hip hopper style.
I am the one who holds her head up tall when people try to knock her down.
I am the one who braves the world with a smile on my face even when I'm broken inside.
I am the one who doesn't care what people think of me.
I am the model who struts her stuff down the runway.
I am the singer who sings her heart out, not caring who hears.
I am the girl whose laughter bounces off the walls.
The one who said,
"Keep your head up, stand tall and watch all your haters fall."
The girl who can't be silenced.

Sometimes I wish I could slap him and scream "EVERYTHING YOU WANT, HAS BEEN HERE THE WHOLE DAMN TIME! YOU JUST REFUSE TO BELIEVE ITS ME!"
Sometimes I wish I could kiss him and hold him in my arms forever.
I wish I could take away all the pain she has caused him.
I wish I could take away the memories she left running through his head.
I always tell him Ti Amo Per Sempre and things will get better.
I always told him no matter how bad things get you have to stay positive because things will get better.
I remember the summer days of when we first met and how much I loved him then and now.
I remember the stormy nights when he would call me and make me feel less afraid of the thunder.
I remember the late night calls and the songs he sang to me

Im sorry Im not who I used to be.
Im sorry Im not the person you want me to be.
Im sorry that we barley talk.
Im sorry I got fucked up in the processes of growing up.
Im sorry I changed and cant go back.
Im sorry you feel like a fucking door mat.
Im sorry for a lot of things whether you believe me or not.
But dont think for a second that there isnt a minuet in the damn day were I wish I could go back to being that person that you knew.
To the days were we stayed up late making each other laugh and giggle.
To the days were we showed affection and talked everyday about anything we had on our minds.
To the days I would come crying to you and you would take away the pain with a few words.
To the days were I felt like I belonged and felt that nothing else mattered.
To the days were I thought I was in love with you.
But those days are gone thanks to the dark cloud thats blocking the sun in my days.
But those days will come again soon I know they will because Im working on getting better.

The group of superheroes was better known as the Teen Titans, protectors of Jump City . . . everyone knew who they were. The team leader, the one with the eye-mask was Robin, the legacy to the Dark Knight known as Batman. The alien-girl that was involved with him was Starfire, a runaway from her home planet of Tamaran. The half-man-half-machine was Cyborg; his signature feature was his cyber cannon, an implanted energy-gun in his right arm. The animal-turning, green elf-boy was Beast Boy, a rambunctious teen with shape-shifting abilities. The light-haired girl with the icy-sphere was Kai, a new recruit to the team. The violet-haired, slightly dark-mannered girl that had almost caused certain death to the thug earlier that morning was Raven; she had telekinetic and dark-magical powers. Not exactly the perfect team of saviors, but they knew how to get along together, you could call them friends of some

An almost sadistic feeling.

And this I will not be leaving.
Bordering on insanity,
But they can't put me away.
For I am invincible,
