[GBTT] Raven's Little Friend
Cyber was casually walking through the tower's halls, purely content with her life. No reason for whistling, it was quite rainy today, but thanks to that they all had some time for themselves, just chilling in their own rooms, doing whatever they wanted. Now she was heading to the common room, to join the girls and Starfire to watch their favorite soap opera...
"You're so beautiful you could be a model!"
Cyber froze just outside Raven's door. Was he having a guest? A female guest? Did anyone notice? Well, since Beast Girl wasn't here to eavesdrop on the guy, who's the love-of'er-life-but-she's-too-immature-to-notice-it, that would mean no one knew but herself. And just thinking that Raven might've invited a girl just to cheat with her on the girl, who's the-love-of-his-life-but-he's-too-immature-to-notice-it, boiled the remains of blood in her system.

The Portal Child XII: In Case We Die
Raven and Beast stepped into the common room alongside dr. Love. Everyone looked at them with their breaths held in. Raven was fourteen weeks through now, and it was the first attempt to determine the twins' genders. So, clearly, they all wanted a confirmation on their predictions, since they all had placed their bets.
"Well?" Cyborg prompted, glancing at Raven, Beast and the doctor alternately, not sure who'll spill the news.
Doctor Love inhaled, wearing a wide smile, as always. "Fetus number one, a.k.a. the portal baby is, according to plan, a girl."
Timmy whined discontently while Melvin pumped her fist in victory. "Okay, we already knew that..." Arella stated, caressing Tim's red head gently. The boy was about to cry, but was bravely holding it in.
"Fetus number two, a.k.a. the little beastie is... " doctor Love cringed slightly, but managed to remain smiled. "... very active, but not willing to cooperate just yet."
"What does it mean?" Melvin asked. Raven sighed heavily while her

The Titans Trade pt. 5
The next day, in the evening, a knocking on Raven's door resounded, pulling her out of the meditation. She sensed anxiousness and curiosity from the person.
"Yes?"
"Raven, do you have a minute?" came Aqualad's seemingly calm voice. She noticed he was much better in hiding his nervousness than Beast Boy. Aqualad was better in hiding his emotions in general, he wasn't as expressive as Gar, making him hard to read at times. Sometimes to the point of making Raven feel slightly frustrated with him. But for now, his nerves must've been too much to handle for him. She knew the talk was to be expected, but that didn't mean she felt ready for it. On the other hand, she may never be ready. With a heavy sigh she spoke.
"Come in."
The door opened and closed behind the handsome Titan. Raven watched him from her lotus position on the bed. His eyebrows were knitted together as if he was in deep thought.
"I suppose you wanted to talk about Beast Boy?" she asked, raising an eyebrow. Aqualad nodded.

The Portal Child XI: News
Raven stared at the envelope lying on the table in front of her. Her hands shook and she nervously chewed on her thumb, just staring. She didn't dare open it. It was a plain envelope, with her name (or rather new name, Raven Logan) on it, addressed to the Titans' Tower. It was from the clinic, the dreaded paternity test. It came this morning and the moment the others learned what it was, they all nagged her to open it and find out. But she was scared. The fear paralyzed her and she couldn't do it. Only her mother stood in her defence, saying she should open it when she felt ready to do so. So she layed the envelope on the coffee table, took a book on maternity to relax and preoccupy her thoughts with it and sat on the couch. But since she opened the book, she never even glanced at the words. Her eyes were focused on the envelope the whole time and she had no clue where she'd started or for how long she's been just sitting there, chewing on her thumb.

Q'n'A#27: Tea Parties with Pirates
Q: Raven, since you're awfully flirtarious with Aqualad, what do your mom and kids think about him?
Okay, this question's a little old, sorry. But here's the answer.
Aqualad turned the camera at his face. He seemed utterly confused.
"Alright, from the looks the kids gave me, I assume they're fans of Beast Boy. I hope not for long..." he said with a sigh. "The ladies went to prepare a tea party... whatever that means... So I'm stuck with the remaining two." He rotated the camera so it recorded Timmy with his blue blanky and Teether, sucking his thumb and looking around curiously.
"I'm bored!" Timmy yelled.
"Okay, buddy, so what d'ya wanna do?" Aqualad asked. His arm caught the roaming toddler and put him next to his older brother.
"I wanna tiger ride!" Timmy yelled out again, crossing his arms.
"Well, I can't do that, buddy. I'm not Beast Boy."
"You suck!"
Aqualad chuckled nervously. "How about a dolphin ride?"
"Dolphins are for girls!" Timmy argued.

The Portal Child X: Surprises
For the first few minutes Raven and Gar talked with the Titans on the video conference. Among talking about the dress, wedding preparations and then pregnancy Raven managed to blab out about the twins. And made Rita lose it again. Arella took care of that, fortunately (and of Mento's headache by the way). So the news spread, and after Speedy ended their call with a toast and congratulations, Raven was attacked by their female guests.
"So! Twins!" Sarah began with a grin and a gleam in her eyes.
"Yeah, how'd that happen, girl?" Bee asked.
"Oh, you know" Raven rolled her eyes. "When a man and a woman love each other very much..." The three chuckled.
"But that's exciting!" Karen said. "Are they identical?" Sarah nodded her head to show she wished to join into the question.
"No, they're not." Raven had to literally bite her tongue to prevent herself from saying 'they may have different fathers, too'.
"It would be super adorable if you got a pair!" Sarah squealed.

Unbelievable. She hung up. He just told her to forget everything and anything he had told her in his drunken state. Why would it be a bad thing? What was she mad about, the karaoke?
Don't call me anymore.
She just hung up...
Don't call me anymore.
Beast Boy frowned, realizing something. "You called me!" he yelled to his phone angrily and threw it at the wall. The devise broke into pieces. He grabbed his hair and pulled it, yelling from both physical and emotional pain. He then threw off everything that stood on his desk, kicked his possessions until his feet hurt. All that for about a minute, and with a wild, throat ripping yell. When he was done wrecking his room, he finally sat down on his bed, rubbing his face.
"Geez, Rae, what did I tell you?" he asked as if she was next to him. He didn't understand her reaction at all. One moment she's all shy and calm, the next she's throwing a tantrum and basically tells him to never speak to her again.

Q'n'A#26: The Challenge
The movie began with the screen divided in two for the video conversation. Aqualad and Raven on the left, and Beast Boy on the right. Beast Boy was leaning comfortably on the back of his chair. He petted Silky, his cheeks were full of something. Music from the 'Godfather' played in the background.
"So you come to me, after stealing my woman..."
"I was never yours" Raven chimed in but Beast Boy ignored her still petting the purring larva on his lap.
"And now you ask me to test your knowledge?"
"I will ask you guys ten questions..."
"I've got a better idea" Beast Boy cut Raven off, spitting the swabs out. "How 'bout I ask him few very simple questions? You'll only make it easy on him."
"No way" Raven said.
"That's fine, I take the challenge" Aqualad said bravely. Beast Boy smirked.
"Oh, you have no idea what you just got yourself into."

"Alright, folks! Our contest is finally over, thank all of you for participating!" Cyborg exclaimed overly excited.
"Before we announce the winners, we'd like to give you a head's up that today's video will be divided in two parts" Jinx added.
"First we will read and comment the ten best answers we got from you guys, and then we'll let Raven and Aqualad answer to them" Robin chimed in.
"We should probably warn you, we kinda played voice acting" Kid Flash chuckled, glancing at smirking Beast Boy.
"Let us begin!" Starfire clapped her hands cheerfully.

Cyber was casually walking through the tower's halls, purely content with her life. No reason for whistling, it was quite rainy today, but thanks to that they all had some time for themselves, just chilling in their own rooms, doing whatever they wanted. Now she was heading to the common room, to join the girls and Starfire to watch their favorite soap opera...

"You're so beautiful you could be a model!"

Cyber froze just outside Raven's door. Was he having a guest? A female guest? Did anyone notice? Well, since Beast Girl wasn't here to eavesdrop on the guy, who's the love-of'er-life-but-she's-too-immature-to-notice-it, that would mean no one knew but herself. And just thinking that Raven might've invited a girl just to cheat with her on the girl, who's the-love-of-his-life-but-he's-too-immature-to-notice-it, boiled the remains of blood in her system. The robotic woman walked silently, closer to the door and almost pushed her face on it.

"Okay, no. You're too clumsy for the catwalk." Came Raven's voice again. "But you're still my lil' beauty. Who's the cutest clumsy little thing in the world? You are. Yeah. Gimme a kiss." No sounds. "There ya go. Oh, yeah, I love ya too."

Cyber shook her head in disbelief. Raven was actually cooing. And he's actually paying nice compliments for his guests, so it must be a girl, right? But why didn't she hear her? Was the girl mute? Or... gagged?

Cyber shivered. She liked the boy, she really did. You could even say she kind of considered him a little brother, but he was still a half-demon. Plus this boy was an unpredictable psycho at times, you never knew what to expect from him. She shook her head. She was already late for the show. Who knows, maybe they already revealed who's the father of Esperanza's child, Jose Angel or Miguel? ...

But who's that poor girl in Raven's bedroom? She asked herself in her mind, physically glancing at his door through her arm. Beastie must be informed!

~...~

~Jose Angel! No, Jose Angel!~

"Don't go away Jose Angel!" Beast Girl cried out. "It wasn't her fault!"

"He's gonna turn and go" Robin commented.

"But he must not! She did not know he was alive!" Starfire opposed.

"No, Jose Angel!" Beast Girl yelled simulatenously with Esperanza in the TV.

Robin frowned, mumbling, while Jose Angel shut the door loudly and walked out, leaving Esperanza (and Beast Girl and Starfire) in tears. "What am I doing with my life? That series doesn't even make sense..."

The door to the common room opened, revealing Cyber, deep in thought.

"Hey y'all!" she called out a greeting. "Do you know who-...?"

Before she could finish her question, Beast Girl and Starfire answered her, both in tears.

"Miguel!" They whined in unison. "Miguel is the father!"

"I knew it!" Cyber shrieked.

"No sh!t, Sherlock... Like it wasn't obvious from the beginning. I don't even know why I keep watching that sh!t with you guys" Robin muttered unethusiastically, hugging her knees to her chin. Only Cyber's next question pulled her out of the grumpy state.

"But what I wanted to ask was, does anyone know who's visiting Raven today?"

Robin's head snapped up and she turned herself around, propping her fit body on the back of the sofa. "I didn't know someone was visiting him" she stated intrigued, as befitted for a young detective bored to death.

"I didn't know someone would want to visit him" Beast Girl chimed in.

"I wonder who it may be" Starfire wondered. "Was it a female?"

"Well, I hope so!" Cyber put her hands on her mechanical hips. "He said 'I love ya too', so... I mean I'm not judging-..."

Eyes of all three shone dangerously. Robin's, because it was finally something interesting happening, Starfire's, because he was hungry of romance stories and Beast Girl's, because, well, she liked Raven and was getting jealous easily, but wouldn't admit it if her life depended on it. So the three spoke in unison, almost scaring the cr*p out of Cy.

"Let's spy on him!"

They all ran out of the room, the soap opera completely forgotten. They stood in front of Raven's room, pushing their faces to the door in an attempt to eavesdrop. For a short while there was just silence, but then...

"What, darling? What d'ya want, love? I don't have anything for you." Short silence.

"You think she's mute or something?" Robin asked in a whisper.

"Right now it's the best scenario in my head..." Cyber replied in a hushed tone, making her leader raise a curious eyebrow.

"You're so soft, com'ere! You're not gonna escape me! Naaaah!"

"He's so loving to her!" Starfire noted gleefully.

"I know! I can't believe it! He called her darling and love!" Steam was coming out of Beast Girl's pointy ears, what made Cy smirk knowingly.

"Hush, B, he's gonna hear you" Robin noted. But it went on deaf ears.

"You jealous girl?" Cyber teased her green friend.

"What?!" Beast Girl yelled outraged, her face covered in blush.

"He fell silent" Starfire announced, already knowing what's coming, just as Raven opened his door glancing at them with a menacing frown. He glared at all of them, giving Beast Girl a significantly long look before asking.

"Why are you snooping around?"

"Oh... Hi, Raven..." Robin spoke sheepishly, blushing from getting caught so easily.

"You got a visitor, boy?" Cyber asked him without any further ado. Raven merely rasied his eyebrow.

"A visitor?" he repeated. "No, why?"

"Well!" Beast Girl began in a very accusative tone. "We heard'chou call someone darling and love and-..."

"May we meet your friend?" Starfire asked with a joyful grin, flying into Raven's face, completely cutting Beast Girl off. She put her foot down like a grumpy five-year-old.

Raven blinked a few times as if he was shocked, but then he put his usual expression. "Oh, darling! That's what you're talking about! You guys wanna meet her?" They all eagerly nodded in unison (Beast Girl full of anger and with claws ready). "You sure?" They nodded again. "'Cause she may be a little out of your expectations" he warned.

"Just bring 'er in, boy!" Cyber encouraged him. Raven walked into his room with a sing-song tone on his lips.

"Oh, Nila! They wanna meet you, love!"

"I bet she's a tall blonde with Z cup" Beast Girl muttered infuriated.

"How does that make any sense?" Robin asked rhetorically.

Raven's voice became louder as he was walking to the door. "Don't be scared, there's nothing to be afraid of." He cooed, then turned to his friends. "You guys ready? She's a bit of a coward."

"We are the ready, friend!" Starfire answered for everyone, making Raven walk out of the comfortable darkness of his room, with a silver-blue rat on his hand. The tiny paws with tiny little fingers were pink, as well as the cute ears. While Starfire and Beast Girl let out a simultaneous 'aww', Cyber and Robin let out a shriek and hugged each other.

"Kill it! Kill it!" Robin shrieked.

"Where's my flamethrower when I need it?!" Cyber yelled, pushing numerous buttons on her mechanical arm, thus turning it into the sonic cannon, a chainsaw, a pneumatic hammer...

"Hey! Woah! What the hell is wrong with you?!" Raven yelled, petting the tiny animal in his arms and covering it's head. "You literally scared the sh!t outta her!" Now the rat climbed on his shoulder and escaped into the folds of his high collar. He kept on petting the rat cuddled to his neck.

"Well, to be fair, I peed a little..." Robin confessed.

"I warned you that she's a coward and that she's not what you expect."

"We expected a human at the very least!" Cyber spoke in a shaky voice.

"She's adorable!" Beast Girl cooed, observing the pet on Raven's shoulder.

"I agree" Starfire spoke. "Her coloring is very beautiful."

"Oh, you should see her tum-tum!" Raven said excitedly, something very un-Raven, picking the rat up by its armpits (making the animal squeak silently). "Aw, don't be scared, love" he comforted her, showing off her blue belly with irregular white markings on it.

"Awwww" Beast Girl and Starfire almost melted at the sight.

"She has white socks on her adorably tiny paws!" Starfire noted, while Beastie scratched behind the rat's ear.

"I know! It's so cute" Raven agreed enthusiastically. "Just look at how she's trying to grab anything with those rat hands!"

"So... for how long have you had that thing- I mean her?" Cyber asked cautiously.

"Oh, something about three months or so?" Raven wondered.

"Wonderful" Cyber spoke with a fake grin before turning serious. "I want that thing outta mah tower." Raven flashed her his four red eyes, making her tremble. "A'ight, it can stay?" she offered hesitantly with another fake smile, her utterance coming out more as a question than anything else. "But don't let it get anywhere near me. I can't promise I won't kill it if it surprises me."

"And I thought Silky was the weirdest pet..." Robin muttered under her breath, forgetting Raven was the only person who heard when she did that. So she jumped when she heard him reply to her.

"Silky is the weirdest pet. Even more so than reptiles or wild cats."

"Ooh! Can I introduce Silky to Nila?" Starfire asked enthusiastically. Raven glared at him in silence.

"No" he said in a tone of finality.

"But-..."

"He'll eat her" Raven stated bluntly.

"No, he won't" Starfire denied.

"He eats everything."

"But-..."

"I repeat, everything" Raven stressed. Starfire bowed his head down.

"Don't look so sad, Star" Robin patted his shoulder friendly. "She's a rat. Nobody likes rats."

"I beg your pardon!" Raven chimed in. "There's lots of rat lovers! Rats are very intelligent creatures. They're social animals and they build strong bonds with their humans."

Starfire seemed to get his good mood back, because he smiled again. "You sound as if Nila owns you and not the other way around?"

"What can I say? She stole my heart." Raven shrugged.

"Aw, Raven!" Beast Girl nudged him with her elbow. "That was officially the sweetest thing I've ever heard you say!" She paused. "Or maybe the second? No, the first, 'cause it was honest this time..."

Raven frowned, listening to her. "What are you talking about?"

"Nothing, don't mind me" she replied cheerfully before asking. "Can I hold her?"

Raven nodded and gently put the rodent in Beast Girl's hands. It wasn't a very big rat, it fit in the green girl's small hands perfectly, its tail curled around her wrist for balance. She sniffed around in Raven's direction, then quickly decided to explore and so she proceeded to go along Beast Girl's forearms, then up her arms and onto her left shoulder. The girl giggled, wincing slightly.

"She tickles and hurts me at the same time..."

"It's hurting her, where is that flamethrower of yours?" Robin whispered to Cyber, both standing asif paralyzed by the wall, not getting their eyes off the harmless rodent.

"I can hear you, y'know" Raven reminded curtly. That made both of them say short apologies.

They all observed the curious animal adorably searching a way to jump on Starfire and explore some more. Robin and Cyber still stood in a safe distance from their teammates. Seeing the rat's interest in himself, Starfire put his palm to Beast Girl's shoulder. The animal sniffed it, before grabbing one of his fingers in both rat palms and slightly jabbing the tip of his finger, but with a such a tenderness the alien prince couldn't help but let another 'aw'.

"She's trying if you're food?" Raven asked knowingly.

"I guess so. Now she's biting my fingernail. So adorable."

"I know!" Raven agreed, but realized he had put too much of his real enthusiasm into it. He cleared his throat awkwardly. "Isn't she?" she asked in a stoic voice.

They all shared the same expression now, a knowing smirk.

"You really love that thing, don'cha, boy?" Cyber asked in a big sister tone.

"One does not simply hate the pure adorableness" Raven retorted while Starfire finally dared to put his palm under Nila's tummy and getting a hold of her, muttering about how silky-soft her fur was. The rat's tail swirled in the air, searching balance on the moving surface that was his hand.

"Okay, that's kind of funny" Robin admitted.

"Oh, do you wish to hold her, friend Robin?" Starfire asked, offering the animal to her. Nila, having her tail curled around his forearm, had stretched her front body in the team leader's direction, her whiskers moving furiously and dark bead for her eyes curisouly observing. Robin flinched slightly.

"Naah, I'm good, thanks" she said, trying to stay cool and not make a fool of herself in front of her crush. Her cheeks matched her shirt though, anyways.

Raven fake coughed, said 'coward' then mocked a cough again before giving his leader a challenging look. Robin raised her chin proudly.

"I'm not gonna fall for that" she stated loftily. Raven snorted and got back to watching his pet trying to bite through the elastic-hairnet thingy on Starfire's hair. Her attempts have been put to an end by the alien's palm and she took interest in his ear. She stood up on her hind paws only, putting one of her front paws on his cheek, the second on the shell of his ear and nuzzled him with her whiskers. The redhead couldn't help but let out something between a chuckled and a snort.

"Well, that was cute" Cyber admitted. "I mean she looks fine, if not for the tail..."

"Oh, but the tail is not unpleasant to the touch at all!" Starfire said.

"Yeah, it's like touching tiny little scales with rough little hairs" Raven described.

"Isn't it cold?" Robin asked curiously.

"Why would it be?" Beast Girl chimed in, finally taking her eyes of the tiny creature exploring Starfire's shag. "Rat's tail actually works as a termoregulation. It drains about 17% of the rat's body temperature if it's too hot. Plus it helps them keep their balance, just like it's with cats, so they need some muscles and tendons there, which, as you know, need to be oxygenated. And it's not like they don't have veins in their tails either. How silly of you to think that rats' tails are always cold" she finished her lecture with a giggle and got back to watching the rat on Starfire's shoulder.

"Wow, BG, that's a lot you know about rats..." Robin offered surprised. The green Titan scoffed and spoke not even tearing her eyes off equally curious Nila.

"B!tch please, you know nothing about my animal knowledge." The others exchanged baffled looks.

"Oh, did you know one rat couple can have even one million babies a year?" Beast Girl offered a fun fact.

Cyber and Robin immediately sent death glares towards Raven. Their eyes shone gravely.
"Don't you dare buying her a male companion, boy" Cyber began.

"I'll kick you out of the team and you can deal with your mama issues all alone" Robin threatened.

Raven blinked, seemingly unfazed. "I didn't intend to..."

"I'm glad" Robin offered. Both her and Cyber visibly calmed down.

"Raven, I think she wants to go home now" Beast Girl noted. Indeed, the the rat was a little fussy, toddling from left to right on Starfire's shoulder, finally standing on the very edge of it and stretching her little rat snout forward in Raven's direction.

"Aw, you wanna go back?" He shamelessly cooed again gently taking his pet from his friend's shoulder. "Okay, but gimme a kiss first." Raven puckered his lips and put the rat in front of his face. The pet licked his lips repeatedly and as if in a hurry.

"Aww!" Starfire and Beast Girl exclaimed.

"EW!" Robin and Cyber stuck out their tongues in disgust.

"He's kissing that disgusting rat face!" Robin said. Raven immediately glared daggers at her.

"She's NOT disgusting. She's cute, adorable, pretty and beautiful and she loves me unconditionally." He paused, before adding. "Until I fetch a banana. Banana is to die for." He then spoke to the rat in his hands. "Right, baby? Yeah, Nila loves me some bananas."

Cooing so, he turned his back on them and walked back to his room, his doors closing shut behind him.

"Aw. What a cutie" Beast Girl said with a content smile on her face. Cyber and Robin exchanged significant smirks.

"Mhm. The rat was cute, too" Robin said.

"That is what she had said, was it not?" Starfire asked a little confused, but the girls completely ignored him.

Beast Girl turned her head abruptly in Robin's direction. Her eyes met the taunting smirks of her female friends and blinked twice.

"Huh?" was all she uttered.

"You must be relieved, Beastie" Cyber continued the teasing. "He obviously wants you really bad."

All Beast Girl did was blink twice and let out a confused 'huh?' again. Starfire cleared his throat so to be noticed finally. Only the green girl's head turned in his direction though.

"I believe what friend Cyber and friend Robin are implying is that you had showed a great amount of jealousy about friend Raven's mysterious visitor. So you must be relieved since the mysterious person had proved to be just a pet." Now Robin and Cyber both looked at him in astonishment. "Another suggestion I believe our friends have made was that friend Raven must have a really deep need for you for he had apparently substituted you with the said pet." He now turned directly to Robin and Cyber.

"Well..." Robin began, not really knowing what to say.

"Heck yea, brother!" Cyber said, giving him her metal hand for a high five. He gladly took it with a laugh.

"Haha! I had thought it was just my impression, but it seems it wasn't just me after all!"

Beast Girl frowned and scoffed. "Uh, na-uh! You people are wrooong!" she drawled like she always did when she had no good excuse. They all sent her looks of pity. This sent her ranting. "Okay, one: I weren't jealous! Why would I be jealous? I don't even like this guy, he's creepy!" The three merely exchanged significant gazes with knowing smiles. The green teen groaned. "And two: Raven hates me! So he's totally not replacing me with a rat. He apparently just likes rats. I think it's cute." Her eyes widened, realizing what she had just said and she quickly covered her mouth with both hands. Too late, they were all wearing smug smirks on their faces. They thought they knew better. She had to take action, now! "I meant the rat! I think the rat is cute!" she cried out desparately.

"Mhm" Robin hummed, folding her arms.

"Of course, Beastie" Cyber agreed pityingly.

"Yes, friend, do not be up the set with us" Starfire spoke tenderly patting her head like a big brother would. "We believe you that you do not harbor any feelings of romance towards friend Raven."

That was it. She inhaled deeply and puffed her cheeks out, looking like a brown Jigglypuff pokemon, due to the redness on her cheeks. She put her foot down a few times and opened her mouth, intending to yell at them, but Robin hushed her.

"Careful, Beastie, we're still in front of his door" she spoke in a taunting whisper. "Do you really want him to hear what you're about to say?"

Beast Girl glanced at the door quickly and furrowed her brow at her unfaithful friends. "I don't like Raven!" she whispered loudly. Before any of them could mock her further, the door to Raven's room opened again. Best Girl's heart leaped and her stomach jumped to her throat. Raven wore a displeased frown... and headphones on his head. He removed one of the headphones and spoke.

"Could you guys go someplace else? Your heated argument is breaking through my music." He then rested his impassive gaze on Beast Girl. She was covering her mouth with both her palms, her cheeks were flushed and her eyes were fixed on his own. He sensed the emotions she was giving away to his psyche: dread, stress, hurt, guilt, hope. Hope. The last one always gave a soft bell sound in the back of his mind, somehow. "You okay, doll?" he asked casually.

She looked at Robin, Cyber and Starfire as if calling them to rescue, with her palms still on her face. Satrfire snorted so suddenly Raven almost gave a start. Almost.

"Friend Beast Girl had swallowed a fly" he said carelessly. Raven raised an eyebrow.

"She swallowed a fly?" he repeated in desbelief. Before Beast Girl could react in any way, Cyber spoke.

"Yea, you know, flies aren't exactly vegan, so she's all drama queen about it" she chuckled out. Raven regarded his vegan friend and scoffed.

"Serves you right for yelling under my door. Maybe if you kept your mouth shut, the poor fly would still be alive." Saying so he closed his door, disappearing in the darkness of his grim cavern.

Beast Girl immediately turned to her friends. And whispered loudly. "Oh my god, do you think he heard me?!"

"Well, he heard your noise..." Robin noted.

"He probably sensed my fear, too!" Beast Girl began panicking. "I have to explain that's not what I meant!" She rushed to his door and despite their requests not to do it, she knocked loudly. Her knees almost gave away when he opened the door with his brow furrowed in anger. He eyed them, visibly annoyed and rested his irked gaze on the emerald thing he used to call "doll". Guilt was stroner this time. Interesting.

"What?" he asked audibly irked.

"W-well..." she stuttered uncontrollably, bowing her head and fidgeting with her fingers. "I... I mean... What you heard... I totally didn't mean it, Rave. I promise!" she exclaimed, even daring to touch his forearm, but quickly retracted her hand as if it burned her. She looked him in the eyes, her own behind a wall of tears. "I didn't mean it like that, I swear..."

"Doll..." he began and put his palm on the top of her head. "I have no idea what you're talking about." He patted her head gently, leaving her baffled and speechless. "Now be a good doll and go be loud somewhere else, would you?" He directed her to her left and pushed her back slightly, forcing a small step out of her. "Go on, there's nothing interesting here."

"So you didn't hear anything?" she asked to make sure.

"Just the noise you were collectively makin gunder my door. Now off you go, your auras are messing up my mood." Raven waved his hand for them to leave, then he closed his door again.

Beast Girl sent the remaining three a death glare. "I hate you all" she whispered angrily, let out an offended huff with her chin proudly up and she walked straight to her own room.

"She is so the obvious" Starfire said.

"Glad to know you see that, too" Robin smiled at him.

"Speaking of obvious..." Cyber muttered under her breath. Starfire still managed to hear her.

"What is it friend Cyber?" he asked curiously, making her stiff slightly.

"U-uh... I mean..." she stuttered. "Do you think he knows?"

"He should be pretty aware, he's an empath after all" Robin reminded, propping a hand on her round hip. Suddenly the door to Raven's room opened, startling them. Looking in his direction, they all trembled and hugged each other. Raven had red horns on his head, four red glowing eyes on his face, fangs for his normal teeth and tentacles made of darkness were flowing from underneath his cloak.

"GET OOOOOUUUT!!!!" he yelled in a demonic growl. The whole tower shook and the three terrified Titans ran for their lives, yelling in fear. Once they were gone, Raven turned to his normal human form and chuckled. "Works every time." Having said this, he returned to his room. Finally he'll have some peace.

The moving mess in his arms awoke him. He quickly looked at Raven, trembling and twitching in her sleep. She let out something between a moan and a cry.

“Rae!” he said loudly and touched her face, making her wake up immediately. Her eyes were wide open and she looked at him unconsciously. “Bad dream?” he asked, caressing her cheek gently with his thumb. She didn’t seem to mind. Even relaxed into his touch and sighed, closing her eyes.

“Yes” she whispered back, furrowing her eyebrows.

“What about?”

She opened her eyes and glanced up at him. “The end of the world, what else?” She reached her index finger to her temple.

“Was the priest there?” he asked and immediately bit his tongue. He didn’t want to actually ask that. He was curious, but he didn’t want her to relive things.

“Yes” she answered weakly. She freed herself from his embrace and he instantly felt cold not only on his skin but also on his heart. He watched her sit on his left tiredly and leaning to the wall.

“Are you scared?” he asked.

“Of what?” she asked with her eyes still closed. The headache was killing her. Stupid nightmare.

“Of the priest.” She stopped massaging her temples and opened her eyes to look at him. She was in deep thought. Was she really scared? Sure, he tried to hurt her and probably will attack again. And yeah, she didn’t really want to be used to end the world again.

“A tad, yes” she admitted not once averting her gaze from his eyes. “Why?”

“I can… I mean, if you want me to…” he spluttered, trying to find a proper way of saying what he wanted to say. He found none. “If you want” he began again. “I can go out there, find the bastard and make sure he won’t lay another finger on you.”

“What?” she asked flabbergasted. He didn’t look away with shame. He was too sure about doing this for her.

“I’ll go and take him out if you want me to” he cleared. They were just looking into one another’s eyes. She couldn’t believe him. On the other hand, he wasn’t telling her this influenced by his emotions. He was, at least seemingly, calm.

“For real?” she asked quieter than a whisper. He smiled gently as he pushed some hair from the still bruised side of her face and nodded.

“I told ya, Rae. I’d do anything for ya.”

Her heart pounded like a hammer in her chest. His declaration was strong and sincere. He didn’t even as much as blinked when he suggested it. Not even a flinch. And he kept his hand on her bruised cheek, stroking her ever so slightly. He looked at her with such adoration in his forest green eyes, with such admiration. How did he manage to fall for her so strongly? What was it in her that he loved so much? That he was ready to actually kill? It was like he wasn’t himself, or as if he was so blinded by her that he didn’t think straight.
She heard him whisper her name and felt his fingers curl under her chin. His thumb gently stroked her bottom lip and she felt slight shiver go down her spine. She opened her mouth slightly so he would have better access to her lower lip. Her breathing became shallow. She was somewhat dazed. There was a silent ringing in her ears and her head was throbbing and she totally lost herself in this tiny touch of his finger stroking her lip. He put his other hand to her right cheek and she didn’t resist the urge to lean into it. Doing so she let her eyelids slid shut. Her other senses heightened. The feeling of his fingers running through her hair caused goosebumps all over her body. He whispered her name again, more huskily than before and all she wanted now was for him to kiss her.
Not that she wasn’t surprised when he actually did. At first this shocked her so much she had opened her eyes and let out a gasp, stifled by his mouth of course. His lips were slightly chapped. She tried to push him away, even smacked him on the arms a few times, but the only thing he did was gently licking her bottom lip. Feeling his hot tongue on her delicate flesh was intoxicating. She instantly stopped wriggling and opened her mouth, giving him permission to enter. She felt his tongue stimulate her own with jut slight wiggle of the tip of it. Her tongue responded as if it had a mind of its own. She put her arms around his neck as his fingers ran through her hair, occasionally stroking her cheek.

~...~
"It seems she's bothered by that the end of the world thing... I kinda feel sorry for her."
    "Imagine yourself in her place, she's actually forced to do it, it's not her choice"
        "Doesn't mean she won't comply"
            "Have some faith, man"

"omg they're doing it! They're kissing!"
"*squeal* <3 oh, the feels! BBRAE FOREVER LOOSERS~!"
"O.O I don't fucking believe it"
    "That's it, I'm tracking your IP!"
~...~

Their breaths were ragged, they were kissing more intensely with every passing minute. Raven found her fingers playing with a strand of Beast Boy’s hair. He put his arm around her waist and pulled her closer to him. Now her breasts were touching his chest and his hands began to wander, exploring her curves. She found herself straddling him, didn’t even know when it happened. But feeling the throbbing bulge in his pants told her he liked it. He brushed his hand under her breast and she instantly bit him on the lip. Not to berate him, but to encourage him. She felt his lips twitch underneath her kisses into a small smile.

“So you’re that kind of princess…” he muttered as she kissed his jaw. She murmured inquiringly.

“Fight to death over me and I may consider your courtship” he chuckled. She stopped in her tracks and looked him dead in the eyes.
And then suddenly slapped him.

~...~
"Nooooooo!!! BB what U done! omg! QAQ"
"He fucked it up again! XD"
"No! BB, you and your big mouth! Never know when to shut up! You almost got her!"
    "well, at least they finally made out ^^"
        "yeah, took them long enough"
~...~

“OW!” Beast Boy yelled holding his stinging cheek. “What was that for?!” he asked when she got up from him.

“For assaulting me and being cheeky.”

“Assau-…!” he wasn’t even able to finish repeating the word. “You’re the one sending me mixed signals, Rae!”

“Stop calling me that!”

“Why? Because it turns ya on?” he asked with a smirk.

“No! Because it indicates huge proximity!” Silence.

“So it turns ya on” he said bluntly. Raven groaned in reply. “What? I just called you ‘Rae’ a few times and you looked all willing and wanting!”

“I wasn’t!”

“Oh, right, I forgot you tried to shove me off the second I started kissing you” he said sarcastically.

“Exactly! You didn’t retreat!” she accused.

“You kissed me back, Rae!” he screamed, disbelief and frustration audible in his voice.

“I certainly did not!”

~...~
"Alright, so what's wrong with her?"
    "Multiple personalities?"
        "Huh, that makes sense, lol"
"Effing Ms. Denial -.-"
"Well, she did smack him a few times... before giving in and kissing him back, that is XD"
"she could just admit it already -.-"
    "she's too proud to do that"
        "so what, she thinks she's too good for Beastie-Boo?"
            "I dunno, but it seems her pride is in the way, at least to me."
~...~

Her denial was stunning. He stared at her with eyes and arms wide, mouth agape. He shook his head with a frown.
“I can’t believe you! You’re unbelievable!”

“I am not!”

“Yes, you are!” he said desperately.

“Garfield!” she said menacingly.

~...~
"Lol, I can't with that name! XD"
~...~

He shook his head. “Fine” he said, giving up. “Forget it. I know what I know, you keep living in denial. Just answer my question. Do you want me to go find him?” he nodded his head in the direction of the door.

She wondered, making a short caculation. She wouldn’t have to be scared or worry about the priest anymore. On the other hand, killing wasn’t something they did and she didn't want to destroy him with guilt over killing someone. He already was full of it. She shook her head slightly.

“Are you sure?” She nodded. Beast Boy sighed as if disappointed.

“Fine.” He massaged his red cheek a while longer before he leaned into the wall again. She sat near him after a while.

“Shouldn’t we go?” she asked.

“I’m tired. Aren’t cha?” he glanced at her. She simply nodded. “So lay down” he said as he did it himself, facing the door.

Raven felt lost. She wasn’t sure what to do with herself, looking around when he spoke to her again.

“What are ya doin’, Rae?” She looked at him with furrowed brow. “Com’ere.” He invited her with a wave of his arm.

“Do you really think I’m going to spoon with you?” she asked with a cocked eyebrow.

“Rae, if you stop being in denial just for a few seconds, you’d remember you really enjoyed our little make out session” he stated shamelessly. “Now shut up, come to me and enjoy the spooning until you fall asleep.”

She rolled her eyes at him, but obediently lied down beside him, leaving a small gap between their bodies. Beast Boy sighed wearily.
“You’re a stubborn goat.” He closed the gap she left by pulling her small frame to his own body. She didn’t dignify him with a reply. At least not to his insult.

“Beast Boy.”

“What?”

“We’re not spooning anymore” she said, and he knew exactly what she meant. His pants became really uncomfortable.

“Sorry…” he muttered and retracted his pelvis. Then they both managed to fall asleep.

~...~

His communicator woke him up. He glanced at it. It wasn’t anyone calling, it was his alarm clock. Six AM. He groaned. He thought of all the hard training Robin was going to… Wait. He looked at the date. His alarm clock woke him up, so that meant a new day started in the real world. All of the previous few minecraft days were all that they were. Minecraft days. Why were they so tired that they slept almost every minecraft night excluding the previous one? He didn’t want to think about it, yet alone wake Raven up. Wait, where is she actually? Just then he glanced to his left and saw her. With her back to him, she was bending down, probably stretching, her palms were put flat on the planks.

Sweet lord, her ass is perfect. He thought, still staring at her mindlessly. She straightened herself and began doing squats. He could swear she was doing this on purpose. After she was finished she kneeled and put her hands on the floor and started massaging her spine with cat ridge, her hips involuntarily going up and down, teasing Beast Boy’s senses.

“Oh, you’ve got to be kidding me!” he said aloud when he couldn’t take it anymore.

Raven stopped exercising and still on the fours, she glanced at him.

“What?” she asked.

“Are you doing this on purpose?” he asked, trying to cover the evidence of his excitement.

“Exercising?” she asked, cocking her eyebrow. “Yes, like every morning from five to six except Sundays.”

“I meant something else.” He admitted, blushing furiously. “Do you really get up at five every day just to exercise?” he asked with disbelief, gracefully changing the subject.

“I can’t sleep past five usually.” She said, getting up.

“So that’s why you’re never late for the training” he said smiling slyly.

“And you’re always late, because you need an alarm clock to wake you up this early.” She crossed her arms and looked down at him. He stared at her for another few seconds until he realized they were supposed to find Starfire and Robin.

“We gotta go” he stated bluntly and stretched himself.

“No way, I need a shower.” Beast Boy opened his eyes and glanced at her a little dumfounded.

“Do you see a shower somewhere?” he asked.

“I could use the waterfall…” she suggested averting her eyes from him. He couldn’t help himself. He saw her in his imagination, naked, under the powerful stream of cold water… He felt blood rush down his body again.

~...~
"Can't sleep past five, poor thing! D:"
    "I bet on her nightmares being a frequent entertainment"
        "I wouldn't call nightmares an entertainment..."
            "sarcasm -.-;"
"I swear she shook her ass on purpose"
    "she didn't shake her ass, she was exercising, you perv -.-"
        "call me a perv all you want, it worked on bb as well, so he's a perv too :P"
"loool, you see his face? he's imagining her under that waterfall!"
    "me too, lol!"
~...~

“But you have to promise not to look” she said. And just like that, Beast Boy’s happy bubble burst.

“Huh?” he looked at her unconsciously and only understood what she was saying after few seconds. “Yeah, sure! Of course! No problem!” He said it all so hastily that Raven looked at him suspiciously.

“Okay…” she drawled slowly and started for the door. Beast Boy close behind her. She opened the door and spun to face him and put her hands on her hips. “And where do you think you’re going?”

“Um… Up?” he asked, indicating the top of the hill the waterfall came from. “I wanted to get a look on our surroundings and maybe find the island Rob and Star are on.” He explained, when she gave him a raised eyebrow. Her features softened upon hearing this.

“Oh. Okay.” She turned to leave for the waterfall and he got out after her. They shared another awkward glance at one another and then Beast Boy started to climb the mountain while Raven looked at him do so until she could no longer see him. Then she started undressing.

~...~
"He sooooo wants to do her :D"
    "Well no wonder, look at them legs! *whistles*"
        "*barks* :D"
           "*howls* :D"
"They behave like on the morning after one night stand, only without the sex XD"
    "it's because Rae-Rae's such a prude :P"
        "I bet she's a demon in the sheets ;D"
            "Nice"
"loooool bb got slapped again! XD"
~...~

“Ouch, Rae, that hurt” Beast Boy complained for the fifth time, holding his aching cheek with his hand. Raven was far in front of him, trying to avoid eye contact and beating the crap out of him at the same time. They were already on their way to the island Robin and Starfire were on. At least they hoped it was that island. It was the only white area visible from the top of the waterfall.

“Serves you right. You promised not to look” she grumbled not glancing back at him.

“I said ‘I’m sorry’. And also ‘I couldn’t stop myself’ is a compliment, ya know.”
Raven only huffed with anger at this, but couldn’t fight the blush creeping its way to her own cheeks.

~...~

“Hey, they built a cottage!” Beast Boy said, smiling from one ear to another. They happily made it to their destination, the snowy island and found Robin and Starfire without any trouble.

“Brilliant” Raven said rolling her eyes. “Get in there, we don’t want to waste any more time.”

Beast Boy walked to the door without another word, Raven close behind him, and without any other preamble he opened the door and heard three different sounds. Raven from behind him let out a short shout, covered her eyes and walked away from the door calling Azar to help her. Starfire shrieked and Robin also let out a shout and took whatever was the nearest (being his cape) to cover their naked bodies. Yes, it was quite a view.
 
“Friends, we were just…” Starfire began.

“Keeping busy” Beast Boy finished for her, trying to suppress a laugh. “How typical of me to catch you two during this activity. We’ll come back later” he announced and proceeded to close the door hearing Robin angrily mumble something about knocking. After closing the door he walked up to Raven who was standing as far from the cottage as possible, staring somewhere far off.

~...~
"Lool, he was so cool about it XD Unlike Robin XD"
    "It wasn't his first time, remember? they even published that complilation of BB walking in on them XD"
        "Ah, right, once with Raven, too XD"
"Poor Rae XD"
~...~

"What’cha doin’ Rae?” he asked, still amused.

“Looking at the huge tower spelling ‘Cy’ with a huge arrow pointing down” she replied casually. Beast Boy looked where she did and saw exactly what she was describing. In a fair distance there stood one, very tall tower. The inscription was most probably made from planks and torches put on the side of them so that they would be more visible.

“Huh.” Beast Boy said, pretty impressed. “I guess we know where to go next.”

“Yeah, at least we won’t walk into people ‘keeping each other busy’ anymore” she retorted.

Beast Boy couldn’t help but laugh at that, sheepishly scratching the back of his neck. "Yeah, I should've known better than just open the door."

"One would think you'd learn, but I guess you never will" Raven replied with a shrug.

"Okay!" Robin's voice startled them from behind. "Star's packing the things. So I guess we're heading for Cyborg then?" he asked, indicating the tall tower.

"Seems so" Raven deadpanned.

Robin looked at her, especially studying the left side of her face, which was covered with her black hair. "You okay?" he asked casually.

"Yeah" she lied ineptly, slightly nodding her head, but being careful not to shake the hair of her face. Robin noticed Beast Boy giving him signs not to pry for now and mouthing 'later' to him. So he decided to stay low. "I'm fine." Raven continued. "I mean he was a little annoying, but not beyond his standards" she added, indicating Beast Boy with her thumb. He immidiately sent her a glare and mouthed 'we made out' to Robin. The team leader cocked an eyebrow to that.

"Good" Robin replied to Raven with a gentle smile before turning to Beast Boy. "So, Wolf Boy, how's your back? Cause it looks nasty."

"Rae cleaned it with water." The changeling waved his hand dismissively. "How's your pride?"

Robin visibly frowned and before turning on his heel and going back to the cottage he muttered "Go to hell." Beast Boy laughed.

~...~

The four of them walked in the direction of Cyborg’s tower, in total silence. Girls walked in the front, boys behind them. Suddenly Robin spoke up to Beast Boy, still irked about the situation.

“It's about time that you learned how to knock. You're a big boy, Beast Boy.”

“Dude, let it go.” He rolled his eyes.

“Aren’t you embarrassed just a little?” Raven whispered to Starfire.

“No, friend Beast Boy has walked in on us making love so many times I got used to it.”

Raven smirked. “Maybe he likes it.”

“I don’t!” Beast Boy yelled at her, catching up to the girls, Robin on his balls.

“Stop eavesdropping” Raven deadpanned to Beast Boy.

“You’re getting additional chores” Robin announced.

“Oh c’mon, dude! It’s not like I did it on purpose!”

“I wouldn’t be so sure” Raven cut in with a sly smirk.

“Gimme a break, guys!”

And so they argued for the rest of the way to Cyborg’s tower until they stopped at the door.
Raven turned around to Beast Boy and looked him in the eyes.

“We knock this time” she stated, receiving a shrug from him.

“Do the honors, mama.” And so she knocked three times. The door opened to reveal Cyborg, in nude still. Raven shouted again, covering her eyes, again, and instantly turned her back on him, hiding her face in Beast Boy’s chest.

~...~
"I was waiting for this! XD"
"Poor Rae-Rae, penises keep jumping her XD"
"Penises. Penises everywhere."
~...~

“Why do you hate me?” she asked, her voice slightly muffled.

“Way to go, dude, you scarred Rae forever” Beast Boy said, while Robin took his cape off and passed it to naked and embarrassed Cyborg.

“You’re gonna need this” the team leader said, avoiding looking at his still naked friend directly. Cyborg humbly took the cape.

“Thanks, I’ll clean it afterwards… and…”

“Keep it” Robin said. “Please.” He added, walking giggling Starfire into the tower.

~...~
"Is it just me or is Starfire kind of okay with nudity?"
"lol, Star shamelessly looked Cy up XD"
    "let the shipping war begin"
~...~

Cyborg quickly covered himself with Robin’s cape. Seeing this, Beast Boy spoke to Raven who was still clinging to him.

"Rae, it's safe to look, he's covered" he announced, gently patting her shoulder.

"Gar, penises haunt me..." she muttered tearfully.

"I'm sorry, Rae" he chuckled helplessly, stroking her hair. "I'll defend you, I promise. Now go inside, maybe Cy's got a bed."

"Ooh, bed!" She instantaneously walked inside the tower, Beast Boy close behind her. They looked around the room. Cyborg indeed had 5 beds.

"Okay, Cyborg?" Raven turned his attention on herself. "Which one did you not put your naked butt on?" she asked.

He frowned at her. "Wow, Rave, you're being cranky. PMS?"

"Naah, she's been through a lot" Beast Boy waved his hand dismissively. Cyborg, Starfire and Robin exchanged curious looks, while Raven coughed significantly at Beast Boy. "You know I can be a pain in the ass..." he began realizing he'd raised interest of their friends, but then he frowned and began thinking. "Although..."

Him and Raven began counting on their fingers then suddenly Raven came up with an "uh-oh".

"Uh-oh? What does it mean?" Robin asked.

"Does it mean the mode of the gremlin creature?" Starfire asked. Raven looked at her with a frown.

"You guys call my pms a gremlin-mode?" she asked in disbelief.

They all blushed sheepishly. Robin spoke in their defense. "Well, Raven, you're not exactly a breeze to deal with during that time."

"I get it, but gremlin-mode? Seriously? Am I that bad?"

"You are small, mean and we're scared to breath near you" Cyborg added.

~...~
"Pffft, Raven's a gremlin! XD"
"I'm a gremlin too when I'm pmsing :P"
"It's kinda cute they call it that x3"
"Now some of her behaviors make more sense ^^;"
~...~

"That does sound like I'm a gremlin fed after midnight" Raven agreed, finally sitting on a nearby bed. Then all of a sudden Control Freak’s voice sounded everywhere. They all started nervously.

“Congratulations, Titans! You’ve reached the next level of the masterpiece game!”

“What’s your plan, Control Freak?!” Robin yelled.

“No need to yell, Boy Wonder. I just wanted the Titans to show their true faces to all their fans.”

“And what the hell does that mean?” Cyborg asked, scratching his bald head.

Control Freak laughed menacingly. “Oh, it only means you’re on livestream.”

They all paled while the villain laughed loudly. For a moment they were all as if paralyzed. They have been observed and listened to by at least one third of the world, assuming that Control Freak has properly advertised his livestream with the Titans.

“Wha-?” Beast Boy managed to utter, and then they all heard a very loud and rapid inhale from Raven and they looked at her worried.

“Raven, are you…?” Starfire cut off watching her friend hyperventilate.

"Rae!" Beast Boy kneeled in front of her first, the others quickly gathered around them.

"Raven, you need to calm down. Breathe out" Robin said in a calm voice. "Cyborg, open a window." The man immediately rushed to fulfill the order. Meanwhile Raven was still hyperventilating and Beast Boy decided to take action. He pushed the hair out of her face and put his hands on both her cheeks, directing her face on his.

"Rae, come on, look at me!" Before he could say anything else, he was cut off by Starfire's gasp.

"X'hal! Friend, what had happened to you?!" she asked concerned, looking at the black and purple bruises on Raven's face. Robin and Cyborg both began asking questions simultaneously and Beast Boy had to blow a really loud whistle for them to finally shut up. He sent them a death glare.

"Later!" he ordered, before trying to catch Raven's attention again. He took her face in his hands again and made her look at him. He noticed her eyes were full of unshed tears. "Now breathe out." She let out a shaky breath, but quickly resumed few too quick inhales. Then they all began breathing slowly, in and out, to help her visualize. Slowly she regained normal breathing, finally letting a few tears fall from her eyes and onto Beast Boy's gloved hands.

"You're doing great" Robin praised in a gentle voice.

"If you could see the comments!" Control Freak howled in delight before quoting. "I almost feel sorry for watching this. Almost!" He then burst in laughter again.

"Azar, we're commented on..." Raven whined tearfully.

"Doesn't matter. Now try to calm down" Robin instructed her, still talking gently.

"Yes, please do, friend, we have all done some embarrassing things. Robin and I have had the crazy sex of the monkeys for hours until I just couldn't go on anymore" Starfire stated casually, shrugging.

"Nice" Beast Boy said glancing at Robin over his arm.

"You dawg!" Cyborg exclaimed and they both offered him a high five. The team leader high fived with them both with a shy smile.

"It's nothing compared to my embarrassement, Star" Raven stated. "For starters I officially peed in public."

"So? I walked around naked all this time" Cyborg reminded. They all glared at him, making him shrug. "What?"

"Just let her finish, Cy" Beast Boy said. "And all of you better sit down" he added, sitting on Raven's left side.

"It's a good advice, you better take it" Control Freak's voice resounded again.

"I swear to Azar's ashes, I will eviscerate you" Raven threatened, making the villain laugh.

"I'd like to see you try! You're just a tiny little girl now and you don't even know where I am!"

"I'll give you an advice, Control Freak" Raven began. "Don't piss off a pmsing half-demon, it will end up badly for you. Always. No matter what."

"I take it the world knows then?" Robin asked.

"Oh, it's just the tip of the iceberg" Raven replied. Robin, Starfire and Cyborg exchanged worried looks, then the team leader urged her to go on with a nod. "So, as I was saying, first I peed, then the next thing I know I'm being attacked by a..." she let out a shaky sigh, looking at Robin hesitantly. She bowed her head, focusing her eyes on her own hands and continued. "A priest of the Church of Blood, my father's cult." Starfire gasped, Robin's mask widened, and Cyborg let out a short 'what?'. "Of course he didn't fail to introduce himself and even explained his motives. You know, villains like to talk about their big plans to conquer the world..." she added sarcastically.

"Hey!" Control Freak yelled offended.

"Evisceration!" she yelled back, straightening her back like a string. They only heard the villain's offended huff. Raven continued. "So apparently there is some other prophecy..." They each reacted similarly to the last word. Robin groaned aggravated, Cyborg rubbed his bald head and Starfire winced and spat some curse word in Tamaranean. "And according to that prophecy, if that guy has sex with me, it'll start the end of the world. Again."

“So…" Cyborg began, getting up and strolling around the room, nervously touching his bald head. "He tried to rape my Raven?” he asked, audibly irked, but everyone ignored him.

"So the priest did that to you?" Robin asked indicating her face.

"Yeah." Raven winced. "A few backhands with signets and banging my head on the soil."

“He hurt my lil’ sis?” Cyborg was beginning to sound desperately. “He dared to try and hurt my sissy? He wanted to abuse my baby?!” he squeaked out, tears pouring out of his eyes. Now everyone looked at him.

"I thought the car was your baby" Beast Boy stated bluntly, making Cyborg pull out a clenched fist at him without another word. Beast Boy cowered while Raven touched her big brother's fist and pushed it down.

“Cyborg, I appreciate the concern, but could you please stop it? You’re creeping me out” she confessed. "And I already nailed a panick attack."

“He tried, to hurt you! I’ll fucking kill the motherfucker!”

“Watch your language, kids may be watching us” she noted.

“Who cares, they saw a guy try to rape you, Rave! You! My lil’ sissy!”

“Call me sissy again” she said, a menacing note audible in her tone. "I'm ready to eviscerate just about anyone right now."

"Then I shall sit down and calm my naked butt" Cyborg stated, and done exactly what he had said.

"Glad" Robin stated, before turning abruptly to Beast Boy. "Now, where the hell have you been when this was happening to her?!" he spat angrily. Beast Boy's wolf ears immediately went down and he put up his hands in surrender.

"You know how you hate when someone is talking to you through the bathroom door?" Raven asked her leader. He offered a nod. "That's exactly what he was doing. Only this time I didn't have the comfort of the door. So I tried to put him out of my hearing range, because he was yelling to me."

"Oh, Beast Boy..." Starfire looked at him disapprovingly.

"Hey!" His wolf ears shot up again as if to say he's alert. "I eventually heard her calling for help and massacred the guy with these very claws!" he indicated his own clawed hands. "I left him all in blood, probably for death, so I won't be surprised if I go to jail when we get out of here!"

"Nah, he's alive" Control Freak said dismissively.

"Great, now I can at least know for sure I will get attacked again" Raven stated venomously.

"Hey! I will let you know I was the one who blocked his fly!" the villain argued.

"Oh!" Raven exclaimed theatrically putting both her hands on the chest as if to stop her heart from jumping out. "Oh, thank you! My knight in shining armor! My prince charming! My hero, oh, I did not know you're my savior! Aw! Oh, wait." She frowned, pretending to think. "Is there any chance that you only wanted your stupid game to go on?!"

"Damn it! You're good" Control Freak said.

"Well, it doesn't take a detective to solve that puzzle, you're a simple mind" Robin said mercilessly. Starfire nodded beside him.

"Agreed. Even a child would know your true intentions."

"Yeah, what'd ya expect? The hand of the princess and the half of the kingdom?" Beast Boy smirked slyly.

"You'd want it!" Contro Freak scoffed. "Making all goo-goo eyes at her, confessing your undying love to her, baring your soul, calling her your mate..."

"What?" The other three Ttians asked simultaneously, boys with dread and Starfire with evident joy. The villain began singing.

"Garfield and Raven, sitting in a tree. K-I-S-S-I-N-G..." he continued the childish song while the team exchanged awkward looks.

"We might've had a little heart to heart talk..." Beast Boy explained, nervously scratching the back of his neck.

"Yeah. And thanks to this tw^t's song I just realized I've been calling you by your real name all this time" Raven said, giving him an apologetic look.

"Meh. I'll live. But I should let people know it's after the president, not the cat."

"They'll associate it with the cat anyways" Raven said with a shrug.

"You're right, why bother?" Beast Boy shook his head in resignation.

"They even made out and spooned! And then the spooning turned to forking!" Control Freak said out of the blue, making the two blush. Robin and Cyborg began whispering something, glancing at Beast Boy menacingly.

"I've decided, I will eviscerate him" Raven muttered. Beast Boy leaned to her and replied.

"Let's make a deal. I'll torment his body, you'll take care of the soul."

"Deal." They shook hands on it.

~...~
"Well, aren't they just meant to be? ^.^"
"they're so worried about her, it's so cute"
"I bet now Raven would love that chastity belt :D"
"it's cute when she threats with evisceration XD"
    "I don't see anything cute about an angry demon DX"
        "half-demon, pay attention, man!"
"Didn't they reach a level? shouldn't they go to the next one then?"
~...~

"Beast Boy!" Robin's yell rang in the room, along with Starfire's joyous squeal, making both Beast Boy and Raven flinch nervously.

"We need to talk, buddy" Cyborg said menacingly. "Like men." Seeing the serious looks his male friends were giving him Beast Boy swallowed audibly. Meanwhile Starfire quickly sat next to Raven with an excited glimpse in her now hazel eyes.

"Good luck" Raven offered to Beast Boy, letting him know he has to go endure his own torture.

"You too" he said before getting up and walking to the boys as if he was going to be beheaded. Once he was gone, Starfire began blabbing.

"Oh, X'hal, you have to tell me everything!" she said, looking Raven in the eyes. The ex-empath cocked an eyebrow.

"About forking? I'm sure you know more than I do."

"Oh, please, Raven, spare me the sarcasm. You have engaged in the making of the out! I wish to hear all about it! And also about the confession. And about the mate issue, because I may have not understood this one..."

~...~
"Starfire talks funny XD"
    "Only when she's excited as I noticed"
~...~

"Starfire" Raven called to catch her friend's attention. According to plan Star focused her curious eyes on Raven. "Can we, please, have this discussion later? Preferably in a place where we won't be watched and listened to?"

"Oh..." the princess's cheeks turned bright red and she bowed her head simultaneously twirling a strand of hair on her index finger. "I was hoping that perhaps, I mean since everybody else knows..." She raised her eyes at Raven, but met the ice cold stare. She instantly frowned, tsking. "This is not the fair, I am the last to know what had happened between you two!"

"Are you going to pout about me being me?" Raven asked with raised eyebrows. Starfire sighed.

"No. That would mean I am a bad friend."

"And yet you're still pouting." Starfire groaned.

"Can you at least tell me if you are the official again? I am dying!"

"I wish I could, Star, but we really didn't come to any conclusions. In fact we mostly yelled at each other." She explained with a helpless shrug.

"Of course" the redhead scoffed. "First you do the yelling, then you do the thinking. That is so typical of you two interacting."

Raven frowned at her friend's unusual behavior. "Wow, losing the ability to fly really bummed you out." Star sighed wearily in response.

"It has been tough, indeed. And orgasms can only last as much to make me feel better."

Raven raised her eyebrows at that before frowning. "Star, again, too much information." The other girl blushed.

"Apologies."

Meanwhile on the other side of the room, Cyborg and Robin had cornered Beast Boy.

"Listen closely you broccoli head" Cyborg began, puffing out his chest. "If you hurt my little girl..."

"Hey!" Robin interrupted him. "I thought we agreed it's our little girl!"

"What do you know, you took Star from me! Besides I'm closer with Rae-Rae!"

Robin gasped outraged. "You're closer with her?! She's been in my mind! We're like effing twins since then!"

"She comes to me for advice, you pageboy!" Cyborg countered, indicating Robin's half-grown out hair, still covered in hair gel.

"I'm growing out hair and you know it! And you!" Robin turned to Beast Boy again, who put his hands up in surrender, startled. "You abandoned me in this, traitor!"

"Hey, I'm sorry I was growing out my wolf mane to protect your 'little sister'!" he said, drawing air guotes at the last words. "Who, FYI, treats your both like brothers." Cyborg's eyes turned teary again and Robin's chin trembled slightly.

"Really?" they asked in unison.

"Really" Beast Boy assured. "So if you could stop arguing who's closer with her and start the infamous 'big brother talk', I'd be grateful."

"True, let's get this over with" Robin said, rolling his shoulders. Cyborg muttered an agreement while cracking his neck.

~...~
"Raven can totally handle herself, but they still treat her like 'their little sis' XD"
    "I know, it's adorkable >w<"
"BB's all cool, I'd be shitting my pants"
    "actually at this point, he' at the advantage over both of them. He's got fangs and claws and shit :D"
    "I think he's still pissed at the rapist (no wonder) so he's like I don't give a damn"
~...~

"So let us get this straight, grass stain" he spoke in a dead serious tone, glaring daggers at his half-wolf friend. Beast Boy put his wolf ears down.

"If any of us, as much as hears a word from her about you pulling off something stupid, hurting her..." Robin cut off for Cyborg to continue.

"Then we are sorry, my friend, but our friendship will be put on hold so we could royally kick your sorry ass. You understand?"

"You hurt her, we hurt you twice as much."

"Cause we're her big brothers."

"Heck yeah." They bumped their fists.

"Dudes" Beast Boy began solemnly. "I'm ready to kill for her."

"Good" Robin said with a short nod.

"That's what we wanted to hear" Cyborg friendly patted him on the shoulder, what caused the once green teen to hiss in pain. Only now Cyborg noticed the extensive burns on his friend's back. But before he could ask, Beast Boy merely muttered an explanation.

"Creeper, long story." The tall man only nodded.

"Yeah. So, Freak!" Robin called. "You said something about getting to the game's next level?"

The villain let out a huff. "Yeah, but I got a little bug with it and it's taking long. Stupid crap!" He let out a few more curses.

"Got a lil' problem with the programming?" Cyborg smirked slyly. "I could help you with that."

"Really?!" Freak exclaimed a little too excited. "See, I got this-... Wait." He sounded as if a realization hit him. "Ohohohoh, no way! You're not gonna outsmart me like that! Nice try!"

"Was worth a shot" Cyborg said with a shrug.

"Anyways, I have to deal with this bug first. The game's full of them, it's kind of a beta version."

"Great" the boys said in unison, very unimpressed.

"Please, Control Freak, could you explain our purpose in here?" Starfire asked. "How many levels do we have to complete? Does the game have an ending at all?"

“Sure, after a few levels. Your goal is to complete them all and get your powers back. After finishing each level you have to go through a mini game.”

"A mini game? What mini game?" Robin asked suspiciously.

"Various. The mini games are different at each level. The first one got bugged though..." the villain's voice faded slightly.

“Great” the boys and Raven all said simultaneously. Starfire decided on her trademark, yet uncharacteristically grim 'marvelous'.

"So what are the levels?" Beast Boy asked curiously. The villain chuckled.

"You'll see. It's a masterpiece. I combined a few games and some other things. All based on what the people wanted to see you guys in."

"Wait, the people decide what games we enter?" Raven rasied an eyebrow.

"Naaah. I made a few polls and sent them on the Internet. That's how I decided which universes should be included in my masterpiece so the people would see what they want."

~...~
"I remember participating in that poll! I wonder what the results were :D"
    "We're about to find out... once Freak will fix the bug and they'll go further, that is XD"
"I voted for nudity >:3"
    "half of the population voted for nudity XD"
~...~

"Why do I have an impression his masterpiece is a total crap?" Beast Boy asked no one in particular, making the boys chuckle lowly and the girls both smiled.

"I heard that, wolf boy" Control Freak muttered.

"Yeah, so did the rest of the world" the once green Titan mocked further.

"So what did the people want to see us in?" Robin asked casually, comfortably sitting on the bed next to his girlfriend.

"Well, of course they wanted to see you guys without your powers, dealing with some survival... hm..." he wondered. "They wanted to see you guys naked, of course" he chortled while everyone besides Beast Boy blushed. "They also wanted to see you with different powers, or finding a regular job, or to see which Disney princesses you'd be..." Excluding Starfire, who looked thrilled by the idea, all of them frowned at that. "Although that option I put as a joke... But you know, that kind of crap."

"So, about Beast Boy morphing..." Raven began out of the blue, but Freak cut her off.

"A bug. And I can't even turn him back." Raven sighed in disappointment. Suddenly one of the walls in the room opened to reveal a holographic touch-screen with a wardrobe full of clothes. On the right there was a small platform. "Haha! I fixed it!" Control Freak exclaimed. Starfire squealed in delight and clapped her hands.

"Marvelous! These are my favorite games of all time! Robin, may I?" she asked, wriggling like a child. The team leader remained silent and confused.

~...~
"And here comes my 5-yr-old's answer in the poll: normal clothes XD"
~...~

"That's your great mini game? Some girly dress up thing?" Beast Boy scoffed.

"Hey, I had to do something for the kids" the villain replied casually.

"Oh, yeah, pornography and violence is sooo appropriate for children" Raven stated in venomous, sarcastic tone. They only heard him mock her in high pitched voice with unintelligible words.

"Alright, I need some clothes" Cyborg said, stepping onto the platform. "Star?" She looked at him with eyes wide as saucers. The dark-skinned man smiled at her. "Give it all you've got." The redhead squealed in delight and hastily walked to the panel, looking through the clothes in the wardrobe.

"Hey, Cy! You got underpants!" Beast Boy chuckled. Indeed, once Cyborg stepped on the platform, Robin's cape has been exchanged for boxers.

"Man, finally!" the young man exclaimed joyfully before frowning slightly. "It's a little too tight though..."

"Okay, friend Cyborg, I believe I have chosen the outfit for you!" Starfire declared proudly.

"Then bring it on, girl, I'm gettin' cold in 'ere!" The girl giggled before pushing her slim fingers on a few clothes of her choice. After she let go of them on the screen, they immediately appeared on Cyborg. A white wife-beater, then blue hoodie and matching sweat pants. Of course sports shoes on his feet.

"Please, does this correspond to your clothing preferences?" Starfire asked adorably.

"Are you kidding me? I feel like I'm in high school again! It's bitchin'! Thanks, Star" he finished with a smile, stepping down from the platform.

~...~
"Well, now we know Cy prefers comfy sports clothes"
~...~

"Marvelous!" Starfire clapped her hands and turned to the others with sparkling eyes. "Who is the next?" she asked, sticking her gaze directly at Raven, who remained silent and withstood the sparkly look of hope. Instead, Beast Boy got up from his spot beside the ex-empath.

"I might need a little makeover, my uniform's all torn anyways" he said, stretching himself lazily.

"You sure you wanna cover up that burn, man?" Cyborg asked, walking to the bed the rest of them sat on. Despite the fact there were four more beds in the room. "We wouldn't like any infection there."

"Dude, it's all dried by now. One big effing scab. I'll be fine" the wolf-boy waved his hand dismissively and went to the platform.

"He's just showing off for ya, Rae-Rae" Cyborg smirked slyly.

"Yep, cause he's an idiot" she agreed with a smirk. He looked at her and winced, seeing the bruises on her face.

"Jesus Christ, I need to patch ya up. Both of you. I can't even look."

"Then don't." Raven shrugged.

"That's what I'm doing" Robin interjected whilst Beast Boy had stepped onto the platform making his former clothes disappear in favor of male underwear.

"Star, he's fine like that, you can let him go" Raven called. Beast Boy grinned like a fool while Cyborg, Robin and Starfire looked at her as if she grew another head. "What, if everybody knows, I may just as well..."

"You like what 'cha see, mama?" Beast Boy asked with a playful grin and winked at her.

"Ew! I don't wanna hear it!" Cyborg exclaimed in disgust.

"Yeah, I forbid flirting between you two!" Robin ordered.

"What? I need some normalcy..." Raven countered meekly, a small blush creepin gonto her cheeks.

"I'm diggin' this new normalcy!" Beast Boy grinned.

"Friend Beast Boy, are you ready?" Starfire giggled out before sending the outfit his way. He was now wearing a pair of sneakers, dark jeans, a dark blue T-shirt with a white print of a wolf paw and a sweat shirt with a hood and a zipper.

"Looking good, man!" Cyborg praised.

"How do you feel?" Starfire asked quriously. Beast Boy slowly nodded.

"It's unexpectedly comfortable, given that I've got a tail. What happened there?" he asked turning his back to them. His wolf tail was somehow protruding from the jeans. Raven frowned wondering how it was possible whilst Robin and Cyborg scoffed. "Let me guess, textures glitch?" Beast Boy asked knowingly.

"I believe so" Starfire answered him, for the other to guys were struggling to supress the laughter. It's one thing to see a texture glitch in a game, another to see it for real.

"It looks ridiculous" Raven admitted with a deadpan. Beast Boy shrugged, stepping off the platform.

"Meh, I can't complain, it's a comfy glitch for me."

~...~
"Lol, Rae's flirting with BB XD"
    "Lol, it freaked Cy and Rob XD"
"I agree with Rae-Rae, I could just eat him up :3"
"Raven is so cute, I don't even X3"
"Mwahahahaha! That tail glitch! XD"
~...~

Beast Boy stood in front of Raven and looked at Robin significantly. "Dude, scoot over, would ya?"

"So you could sit next to Raven? No, I don't think so" Robin replied nonchalantly leaning backwards and prompting himself on his elbows. Raven gave him an inquisitive look, but he failed to notice, having a battle of death glares with Beast Boy.

"Dude, get your stinky butt up."

Before Robin could counter, his girlfriend called his name. "Ooh, Robin, do come on the platform, I wish to change your clothing next!"

"Thanks, Star, I'm good looking like this" he told her.

"Yeah, Star, don't make him go. Who will be able to defend me from the threat that is Gar, if he leaves his spot next to me?" Raven mocked flatly, making Beast Boy smirk and Starfire giggle. Cyborg slowly shook his head. Robin groaned, pushing himself up from the bed. He took of his utility belt and gave it to Raven. She put it on her lap and patted the empty spot next to her for Gar to sit on. He sat down with a grin.

~...~
"I love how they tease and mock each other :D"
~...~

"But Star..." Robin began, already standing in underwear only, awkwardly covering his private parts.

"I know" she interrupted him. "Something casual and comfortable so it would be fit for fighting, if need be."

"I have trained you well" he said proudly, making her let out a gleeful giggle. Soon he was dressed in combat boots, dark jeans, a plain T-shirt and a leather jacket.

"You're fast" Raven said, knowing perfectly it was her turn to stand on the platform. And seeing Starfire's happy face with sparkly eyes only made her not want to go even more. Nevertheless she got up, gave Robin his utility belt back and walked to the platform, but didn't step on it, while Robin already sat down on her spot. "Do I have to?" Raven asked reluctantly.

"Oh, please, Raven!" Starfire whined like a child. Raven groaned and stepped on the platform, her leotard and shoes disappearing, leaving her in underwear only. Both Robin and Cyborg let out short shouts and covered their eyes. Beast Boy grinned and Starfire giggled.

"Here, friend, wear this for a moment" she said, clicking a classic white sundress, which immediately appeared on Raven's body. "Aw, you look the cute! Perhaps we could leave it this way?" she asked hopefully.

Raven's face remained stoic, but once she began her rant, her voice grew more and more aggravated with each word. "Sure. Maybe I could just lose the panties, lay on one of the beds with my legs spread and we could wait for the priest to finally make his wonderful wish come true and destroy the whole world by pushing his juicy d!ck right up my...!" Before she could finish the boys began yelling 'pants' over and over again, efficiently howling her down.

"Right" Starfire said, cutting them all short with profusely flushed cheeks. "Apologies. I just think you look nice in white."

"Yeah, like a corpse bride with that black eye all over my face and all the paleness..." Raven muttered.

"No, you actually look good in white" Robin said.

"Yeah, it suits you" Cyborg added and Beast Boy confirmed with vigorous nodding.

"Well, I don't like wearing white, I feel even paler..." saying this, Raven's sundress changed to fitting dark blue jeans, a periwinkle-colored tank top, then on top of it a sapphire turtleneck sweater with a decently thick collar appeared. "Care for some shoes?"

Starfire hummed, looking at all the choices she had. And she had a lot to choose from. "I am trying to make up my mind... How about these?" she asked, pushing her fingers on a pair. Raven groaned.

"Star, no heels please, you I hate heels."

"But they are so pretty!" the redhead whined.

"Babe, she's got a rapist on her heels" Robin reminded.

"Yeah, what if she has to run again?" Cyborg added. Starfire groaned, let out a hushed 'grebnacks' and changed the shoes to plain sneakers.

"Much better" Raven stated, stepping off the platform.

"Oh, no, friend, please! There are hairstyles, too!" Starfire stood in Raven's way, before she could step off the platform.

"Hairstyles?" Raven repeated with audible reluctance. "Why didn't you have them try hairstyles, too?" She asked, indicating the boys, but once she looked her friend in the eyes... The pleading, sparkling puppy dog eyes... She had to give in. "Damn it, I hate that look!" she stated, folding her arms on the chest, efficiently pushing her breasts up. Starfire clapped her hands and stood in front of the touch-screen again.

"The one that makes you her slave?" Robin asked.

"Yeah, we all hate it" Cyborg agreed.

~...~
"I don't know why, but it turns me on when Raven starts raising her voice and swears >///<"
    "You have some serious problems man"
    "It kind of is cute, there's so much anger in such tiny little person! ;w;"
        "Ikr?!"
        "Anger is strong with this one"
            "Lol, Clash of the Planets fan? XD"
"Raven does look cute in white tho..."
    "Yeah, bring the dress back! >w<"
"I'm kind of disappointed."
    "why? she looks nice in that outfit. Blue fits her. And she looks great in turtlenecks apparently :D"
        "I don't know, I expected something more goth I guess ^^;"
            "Lol, you labeled Raven as goth XD"
                "What's so funny about it?"
                    "I just think it's funny people are so quick to judge, is all :)"
~...~

"Just make it quick, Star" Raven sighed resigned. "And Robin, make sure she picks something functional, please. I'm not willing to either eat my hair again or to look like I'm on a catwalk" she said, while Starfire was already trying out hairstyles on her. Waves, curls, high ponytail, two braids (which made her look like Wednesday Addams if not for the blue and not black clothes).... Robin saluted to her without a word.

"But you're made for the catwalk, mama!" Beast Boy grinned and winked at her.

"Cyborg?" Raven said expectantly. Cyborg merely smacked Beast Boy at the back of his head, what made Raven smirk in satisfaction and even Control Freak let out a horse laugh. "Thank you" Raven said in a royal tone.

"Ow, what was that for, mama?" Beast Boy looked back up at her, massaging the sore spot. Before she could answer however, he yelled. "Stop!" All of them froze, looking at him with wide eyes. His gaze however was fixed on Raven. Currently she was looking ridiculous in an afro, fortunately unbeknownst to her. Cyborg and Robin snickered at the sight, Freak let out another horse laugh.

"What?" Raven asked cluelessly. "I'm wearing a ridiculous one, aren't I?" One of her eyebrows rose.

"Star, go back" Beast Boy asked, ignoring the other girl completely, somehow.

"You mean to this one?" The redhead changed the afro for pigtails.

"Huh." Beast Boy tilted his head to the side, as if he was wondering. "Not bad either. But go back again."

"Oooh, the French braid! I thought about keeping it, too" Starfire admitted, clicking the hairstyle they were talking about. Raven's hair immediately turned into a braid falling on her left shoulder, with few lose strands falling on her face gracefully.

"That's the one!" Beast Boy announced. Cyborg nodded with appreciation and the 'not bad' face. Raven glanced down and felt her braid gently.

"Robin?" Starfire looked at her boyfriend, waiting for his decision. Finally he put a thumb up.

"Approved" he said with a smile. His girlfriend let out a gleeful giggle while Raven stepped off the platform with a sigh of relief.

~...~
"Lol! That afro! XD"
    "rotfl, lmao XD"
        "I must have it on my desktop wallpaper xD"
"She kind of looks cute in pigtails"
    "Yeah, add a school girl uniform and I can die happily >:3"
        "I see Raven in more of a sexy teacher outfit tho. I think it fits her personality more. Star would be more of a school girl :D"
            "True, man. So true :D"
                "Now I'm gonna have wet dreams with the vision of the two of them, damn you! xD"
"Elsa hairstyle! *Q* Looks great on her!"
"That braid fits her very well. Now only get rid of that terrible bruise ;/ *hugs Raven from safe distance*"
    "*joins the hug and invites all sexual harrassment victims*"
        "Lol, Raven likes her boundaries, you know XD"
            "That is why, the hug is from a safe distance X3"
~...~

"Your turn, Star" she said, walking to the touch-screen herself and watching her friend happily hop on the platform.

"Friend, could you first find a hairstyle that would put this birdnest to an end?" she asked, pushing a hand through the storm of her red curls, tangling her fingers in it as a result. She winced, trying to get untangled.

"Aw, but I like the curls!" Robin complained.

"Don't worry, I will make you both happy" Raven said, touching a particular hairstyle on the screen. It resulted in Starfire's red locks being tied up in a high ponytail. "Done. The birdnest contained, the curls retained."

"But..." Starfire tried to oppose, but her loving boyfriend cut her off.

"Robin approves!" His girlfriend let out an annoyed huff.

Then Raven made a few quick moves on the touch screen, making Starfire fully clothed: long laced black boots below the knee, black thin tights, frilly red mini skirt with Scottish pattern in black and white and a white short-sleeved blouse. A button-down cardigan on top of it all.

~...~
"Oh my, Star is pouting! XD"
    "What an adorable creature she is ^w^"
"I like curly hair on her. Why does she straighten it?"
    "because it's always like that, lol xD"
"Funny, Raven has a nice fashion sense, but she wouldn't dress like that herself... odd"
    "low self-esteem + rapist on her tail... I'd pass too ^^;"
    "you call that fashion sense?"
        "let the shitstorm begin"
~...~

"Done" Raven announced, leaving them all astonished.

"How did you decide so fast?" Cyborg asked.

"A had plenty of time while Star was doing you guys. So, jury?" she turned to Robin.

"Approved, absolutely" he said still stunned.

Starfire stepped off the platform and as if on cue, the room began fading away, until they couldn't see anything, but the blinding white.
Livestream On, Powers Off ch_7 remastered!
Phew! I rapped it up to the last chapter. I had some other ideas, but I thought it would be just easier for me to stop there. The whole plot with Raven's (actually half-) brothers (I read about them somewhere and just went with the flow) and the adorable Trio living with them popped in my head just... I dunno, two days ago? And I thought I'd just mingle the story with the idea.
Tthat's it with this one. I think I'll just stick to one-shots and singular chapters maybe just slightly connected with each other.
And yeah, I know the ending is kinda lame and it could've been just a one-shot, but I only realized it yesterday, so I'm sorry to anyone who read the previous parts orz (that's nice few hours outta the window). But if you have some time tell me what you thought about it (even if your opinion's negative), I'd like to know.


Edit Mar 2017: this chapter is remastered. I'm fitting the whole story after The Titans Trade (relevant chapters: Q&A#20 and The Titans Trade)
So, as you may have noticed, I've decided to revive this story. Why? Cause the ideas haunted me and I couldn't shake them off... "orz
So now it's no farfetched dream, it's all real and it may take a few more chapters. This time, I intend to finish what I started and do it properly.
I realize this one's a little long (but it may be just an impression, I haven't written anything in a while), but believe me or not I couldn't stop. So look out for future chapters, I may become active again :D Hopefully... "orz

“Why did you call me a she-wolf?”

~...~
“I was waiting for that question! :D
“This ought to be good”
“I don’t think he’ll tell her“
~...~

Oh no
– Beast Boy thought. Just when he believed she won’t ask, when he let his guard down, when he himself forgot about it, she asked him about the only thing he didn’t want to talk about. Ever. He turned around to look at her.

~...~
“OMG, look at his face! XD”
“Don’t look at her like that, answer her!”
~...~

Raven looked at his face and saw his eyes were wide as saucers, mouth slightly agape. His wolf ears were flattened. It indicated that he was somehow scared, so it must've been important and realizing that Raven became even more insecure. She felt him stiffen and she saw him turn his back at her as if he just wanted her to continue cleaning his back, but she knew better. He just didn’t want to look her in the eyes.

“I don’t know what you’re talking about.” She frowned.

“You took him by the throat, threw him on a tree and screamed ‘the she-wolf is mine’. Don’t you remember?” she reminded in casual, gentle tone.

“Oh, that.” Seeing that the ‘I don’t recall’ argument won’t satisfy her he decided to take another path. “It’s nothing, that’s why I forgot about it.” He was going to deny everything and she didn’t like it. Not after all this time of secret and not-so-secret crushing and all-night talks in her room and drunken love confessions and jealousy and other stuff they didn't want to admit. She was annoyed and tired of their own game.
Raven threw the wet piece of his sleeve with which she cleaned his now clean back on the floor and folded her arms on the chest.

“Garfield” she said sternly.

“What?” he asked really impolitely, still not turning to face her.

“You didn’t answer my question.”

”I told you it was nothing.”

“That’s not an answer” she said gentler before touching his arm lightly. "Look at me."

Beast Boy sighed, finally deciding on facing her. “Look… I was shifting into a wolf and I was really pissed. Probably my wolf instincts were taking over and I called you a she-wolf. It sounded good just then, in my head.”

~...~
“Makes sense, but judging by her face she doesn’t buy it. And me neither.”
    “Makes sense? It’s bullsh*t and it’s obvious”
~...~

Raven crossed her arms on her chest, raising her eyebrow menacingly. He adverted his gaze.

~...~
“Oh yeah, she doesn’t buy his sh*t :D
“She knows what’s his deal”
~...~

“Yeah” she spat sarcastically. “I don’t buy it.”

“You don’t believe me?” he asked glancing at her but looking away the moment he saw her eyes.

“Maybe I’d believe you, if you were a better liar. But you don’t want to look at me and you didn’t answer right away, which means you have something to hide. And obviously it concerns me. Now tell me the truth.”

“I don’t want to talk about it” he spat.

“You better start.”

“I called you a she-wolf, never happened before, it’s the first time for everything. What’s the big deal?” he blurted out on one breath.

“Beast Boy” she said through clenched teeth.

“Raven” he mocked her, looking furiously in her eyes, his ears erect. “When ya say ya don’t wanna talk ‘bout somethin’ we’re supposed to leave ya alone. But when it comes to you wanting to know ya give yourself the right to push?”

“Calling me a hypocrite won’t get you anywhere” she declared. He rolled his eyes as a response and Raven sighed.

“Fine, don’t answer.”

~...~
“What? No! I wanna hear the answer!”
~...~

“Thank you” Beast Boy muttered, his muscles relaxing a little bit.

“Another question.” She said suddenly and he tensed again. “Why did you say I was yours?”

~...~
“Oh she’s good”
~...~

Beast Boy’s head turned at her abruptly. His eyes were dark with anger, his nose wrinkled. Raven didn’t give in. She straighten her back and held his glare, arms still crossed on her chest. Beast Boy finally gave in, turned away his stare and shook his head.

“You just don’t know when to back down, do you?” he asked just a little above a whisper and got up.

“Answer me, Beast Boy!” she demanded, getting up just like him. He approached the waterfall and looked outside.

“It’s getting dark, we should build up ourselves, otherwise the hostile mobs may find and attack us, just like the creeper before” he stated and untied his bundle. He took out the square of planks with a number sixty four written on it and began to build a wall.

“Stop ignoring me!” Raven stood behind him, trying to suppress her anger.

“I said, I don’t want to talk about it” he repeated his words.

“Yes, but that was about the previous question.”

“I uphold what I said.” Raven felt frustration bubble inside of her and she sighed aggravated. She looked to the side with furrowed brow, bit on her lower lip and shook her head at Beast Boy’s immature behavior. Suddenly it all became dark and then a light of a torch appeared. She looked at him, he was now putting the door in with the light of few torches on the new wall. The sound of the waterfall tuned out. When Beast Boy was finished she hoped she would have some chance to talk to him, make him change his mind, but he didn’t even turn his face to her. He just began to build up the cold stone walls with planks that remained in his hands. Raven sighed again and just thought of anything to say that would make him realize what those words meant to her. When he took out a pickaxe (she had no clue when he created it, she supposed he did it that night he went out) and started to dismantle the stone underneath their feet. She observed him and thought of saying something that would make him know what she felt like. After deciding on her words, she finally spoke.

“I don’t like being objectified, Beast Boy.” He stopped in his tracks, obviously listening to her. “I’ve had enough of being a toy for my father and his worshipers.”

~...~
“someone said something about her being some kind of a victim?”
~...~

“I don’t objectify you.” After saying this he resumed dismantling the stone floor.

“Yes, you do. Calling something or someone 'yours' is the definition of objectifying. And you don't have any right to call me yours. Nothing ever happened between us.“

"I know that" he said, anger evident in his voice. He didn’t stop working the pickaxe though.

"Then why did you call me yours?" she asked in demanding tone.

“I’m certainly not objectifying you, Raven” he denied, seemingly calm.

“Oh, you’re right. It’s more of a reification.” Beast Boy sraightened abrutly looked at her with outrage.

“That’s what you think? That when a guy calls a girl his it’s reification? You think when Robin calls Starfire his girlfriend he’s treating her like a meaningless thing?!”

~...~
"I died watching this”
“He’s so hardheaded, why won't he just finally tell her he's head over heels for her?”
“They are both stubborn...”
~...~

After a few seconds of silence Beast Boy spoke up again.
“You only see the bad side of everything. You could look at the bright side for once” he said resuming his work. Raven bit on the inside of her cheek, thinking intensely.

"I'm sorry.” His wolf ears perked up hearing her words. "I may have overreacted a little." Beast Boy made a face, showing he thought it was putting it lightly, but he didn't squeek a word. However Raven continued. "But among all the things you've said, it's the first time you call me yours. Even though we didn't even get a chance to talk about us."

“It’s more ‘bout me than you, Rae.”

“But it also concerns me and I want to know what you meant. I want to know where it came from. And where it's going.” Beast Boy sighed heavily, hiding the pickaxe and taking out two squares of sixty four planks. He walked to her and put one in her palm. She looked at him with her eyebrow raised.

“Put planks on the floor starting from that wall, it’ll make everything faster” he ordered, indicating the wall on her right. She glanced at the square in her hand with disbelief.

“So you'll just leave me hanging” she said irritated. Beast Boy inhaled, clenching his jaw. He pushed the hair out of the left side of her face, leaving the bruised side covered and looked her directly in the eyes.

“I'll talk when I'm ready.” Saying that he took off to the opposite wall.

“Will you?” she asked doubtfully, but her voice wasn't as demanding as mere seconds ago.

“It's not easy for me, I just need to gather my thoughts.”

"Alright then" Raven said with a sigh of her own and began putting down the floor.

~...~
"looks like it's quiet before the sh*t storm"
    "yeah, it also feels like Rae-Rae's pmsing like hell..."
        "you have to be a sexsist male to come up with such conclusion"
            "actually I'm a girl... And there's nothing wrong to connect oversensitivity, moodiness and irritation with pms. I know I'm a                   royal bitch on those days ^^"
                "connect your brain b*tch"
                "ignore the person above, pls. but why don't you connect her behavior with the recent rape attempt she experienced?"
                    "she's pretty moody since the very beginning, but the stress about the assault might've intensified it I guess"
~...~

After a long moment of silence their backs met and they realized they were closed in the only two squares that weren’t covered with planks yet. They were facing each other and Beast Boy took the remaining planks from her hands.

~...~
"Here comes the perfect moment for a kiss. I bet they're going to blow it again XD"
    "I don't think he's in the mood right now"
~...~

Without a word he grasped her under her armpits and sat her down on the planks, not letting out a sound about his aching arm or back. He didn’t even give her a chance to say or do a thing, but put the two remaining blocks of planks down and headed to the wall accross the door. It obviously needed to be covered in wood. Raven huffed, crossing her arms again. She was hoping he would start talking already.

~...~
“Oh gee, she’s pouting again :D adorable little creature XD”
    “I can bet she’d kill you if she knew what you just said and where you live”
“Raven was so adorably helpless in BB’s arms. like a tiny pussy cat ;D”
“I hate it when my bf picks me up like that, I feel even smaller -.-”
~...~

"But you will tell me, right?" she asked and instantaneously regretted speaking up, because Beast Boy immediately tensed and let out an aggravated sigh. Not turning to face her, he said.

"Raven. You're being pesky. That's my job."

She hung her head and whispered an apology. "It's just..."

Beast Boy groaned and pulled a face. He dropped to the floor.

"Why you no drop it, woman?" he asked desperately.

"I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I know! I'm a hypocrite, lapidate me!" She looked at him apologetically. "I'm sorry, but everything is against me lately. I come home after four months, you have a fvcking girlfriend. Then you suddenly break up and before I gather the courage, after three fvcking weeks, to finally face you to talk about some things, the fvcking alarm goes off, then we land here, then another world-ending prophecy comes up...!"

"Okay, first of all, breathe" Beast Boy said calmly, seeing she was ready to burst into tears any second. "I thought you don't curse" he added with a chuckle.

"Oh, I do, on wonderful occassions like super painful period cramps and being sexually assaulted. And I do it alone in the safe haven that is my room. And in all the languages I know. Believe me, the cussing never stops." He chuckled again. “So. Are you ready to talk yet?" she asked meekly after a few long seconds.

He remained silent. God, he felt helpless. She backed him into a corner. How could he even start? He knew he was doomed to fail, yet again. And it was gonna hurt, yet again. But she did deserve to know. Her questions echoed in his head. Why did you call me a she-wolf? Why did you say I was yours? He let out a major sigh and swallowed. He didn’t turn to face her instead focusing on some point in front of him.
~...~
“just spit it already!”
“how much longer will they just stay quiet?”
“OMFG, he’s gonna confess! I mean properly ^^; At least I hope -.-”
“I don’t f*cking believe it”
“I don’t even. The Bae feels are killing me.”

~...~

“I…” he began and hesitated, feeling her eyes on him. She was indeed looking closely at him. His ears were down again. His tail waggled ever so slightly. He was insecure. “I wasn’t fully in control. I mean…” he cut off again. “You remember the fight with Adonis? The chemicals?" Raven frowned.

"Is it about that... beast form again?" she asked softly. When he didn't reply, she spoke again. “Was that what you were changing into to attack that priest?” She had no idea what he was trying to tell her. Other than he was madly in love with her, which in itself was beyond her.

He shook his head. “Yeah, but it's not about that, Rae. I began changing way before I even knew what was happening. It's more about..." he hesitated. Finding the right words was incredibly hard at this point.

"So it is about feelings?" Raven's question echoed in his head.

"Animals don't have feelings, Rae. I mean they do, but first of all they've got instincts." Now he finally turned his head to face her. "Instinct to fight for the highest place in hierarchy, to find food and a place to live, to find and protect a mate." He swallowed hard at this point, watching her taking the information in with furrowed brow. "Look, I don’t remember that night with Adonis as much as you don’t. But I do remember what I felt. I remember being furious that someone was between me and you. I remember the need to get you to some place safe. I remember wanting to defend you at all costs. And today, when I heard you calling or help I just went straight to the beast mode. I'm not exaggerating.”

~...~
“Oh, this is rich!”
“He’s a maniac?!”
“Look at her faaace! She paled like hell D:”
“She’s going to faint!”
"whoa, so bb's obsessed with her? like literally? Is that it?"
"I don't f*cking believe it"
~...~

Everything started to make more sense. Raven tried to ignore the lump that had created itself in her throat and the butterflies flying all over her stomach. She felt lightheaded.

"Are you telling me...?" she cut off, looking him in the eyes. They glowed in the dim light of the torches.

"Yeah, I've had feelings for you for that long" he admitted grimly.

"So..." His ears perked up. "The animal part of you chose me for its mate a sickeningly long time ago?"

"Yeah" he slowly nodded with a nervous laugh. "Add to that I've been falling for you ever since. It's a mean thing, I can't really help it anymore and I've tried."

"All those girls you slept with...?"

"Rebound sex. Meaningless. I gave them what they came for. And if after the sex they asked for dating I either denied or tried. No one was forcing anyone to do anything they didn’t wanna do. I just let off some unwanted steam and had some fun doing it. Don’t worry, I made sure it was all legal and never caught a disease. Besides, I stopped doing girls a while ago and switched to gym.”

“That’s… not exactly my point, but I’m glad” she admitted. "What about Rikki?"

"Oh" he spoke slowly. He sounded very tired and as if he already given up. "Rikki purposefully helped me realize I would never get over you. You're my mate of choice. I can't do anything about it" he said with a shrug. "But hey, I do like her a lot."

"And where does Terra fit into this?" Beast Boy sucked in some air loudly.

"See, I knew you'd bring her up."

~...~
"Who the duck is Terra?"
    "wasn't that the chick who tore Jump apart and they said they weren't ready to talk about her to the public?"
        "When did they say that?"
            "One of the Q&A, one during the Titans Trade, because I remember Speedy being there. And I think Jinx and Kid Flash were                 there, too, but not sure"
    "probably his ex or somethin"
~...~

"Well, why wouldn't I?" she asked with a frown.

"Maybe because Terra was waaay before all that? She's in the past, Rae, it's over, she's moved on and so have I." She looked at him as if she didn't believe his words at all. "It's like with that song!" Now Raven frowned.

"What song?"

"By La Sera?" he hinted with raised eyebrows, but seeing her still confused face he began singing. "I love my life without you... Ugh, I'd play it, but, y'know, I left my guitar at the tower."

"Why didn't you tell me about this?"

"What, that I'm over Terra?" he asked naively trying to change the subject or at least soften the air around them.

"No, that you consider me your mate." Beast Boy didn't answer. "It's been years since the incident with Adonis, you should've told me."

“Oh, puhlease!" he scoffed. "Don’t tell me what I did was wrong. I know your opinion. I know you’ll reject me. I was only protecting myself.”

“Still, you should’ve told me. I don’t want you to suffer because of me. And look for how long you have.” She got up and started pacing around, massaging her temples.

“What would it change if I told you earlier?”

“If I’d known I…” She stopped her pacing to look at him. “I would’ve left” she admitted with a helpless shrug. He straightened himself and looked at her harshly.

~...~
"But left, like, left the titans...? wut?"
"Okay... why? O.O"
    "I don't get it either"
~...~

“You would’ve left” he repeated her words before scoffing. ”You are sooo predictable, Raven.” She frowned. “That’s exactly why I haven’t told you. You would’ve left. You didn’t even think of the consequences of you leaving. Do you remember when Star traveled twenty years ahead? It was a future without her and the team had split up!”

~...~
"It's officially confirmed, they even travel in time."
    "I'm so jealous"
        "I'm not. Apparently Star didn't have a nice time, discovering the future of her team without her in their lives."
~...~

“That is a completely different situation” she objected, folding her arms.

“Why?! Because it was Starfire?! Because your absence would be meaningless?!” he screamed. He was so angry at her. How could she think so low of herself, and after all those years? “You’re just as important to the team as any of us! We care about you and you say if I told ya I loved ya and picked you for my mate, you would just run away, without a blink of an eye!”

“That’s not what I meant!”

“What else could you mean by saying that?! You would leave us all without second thoughts! Just because you’d rather run away than fight!”

“I told you years ago, I’m not a fighter!” she defended herself.

“What about all those years being a superhero, huh?! You are a fighter, Raven! You just can’t fight for yourself! You’re too much of an emotional coward to try a relationship!”

“I’ve tried relationships!” She felt like a child trying to defend herself from a big bully. It was only a matter of time she’d start crying and say her big brother will kick his ass. Her hands were shaking, her heart was about to jump out of her chest and her head was pounding.

~...~
"Wow, Raven really does have super low self esteem... and look how hot and smart she is"
    "Yeah, it's like, on the far bottom and under 20 feet of mud... Poor Rae"
    "I think she's kinda socially awkward. but that may be because she's a smart person"
"I completely understand her. I'm insecure like that too"
    "Aww, who hurt you, hon?"
~...~

Beast Boy seemingly calmed down, slowly nodding his head. His eyes were challenging her though.
"Alright" he said. "Tell me about those 'relationships'." He drew air quotes, speaking sarcastically. Just when Raven opened her mouth to reply, he added. "Besides Aqualad." Raven closed her mouth and thought for a few seconds, whilst Beast Boy was looking at her expectantly.

"Well, there's Malchior, for starters..." she spoke quietly, as if she was embarrassed.

“Malchior doesn’t count” he immediately declared. Raven glared daggers at him.

"And why not? Because I was fourteen?"

"He was a fvcking dragon!"

"So? I didn't know it then."

"Oh, of course you didn't!" he agreed, his tone still sarcastic and unpleasant. "Because you thought he was a freaking knight in shining armor!"

"He still counts" she defended herself, ignoring his accusations.

"It lasted a week, it doesn't count!"

"He deceived me, used me and broke my heart. He got all the points of the relationship gone wrong, he counts!"

Upon hearing this Beast Boy put his arms up in mock surrender, saying. "Fine, the dragon counts. Who else?"

~...~
"that's it. I'm done. She's a demon, a daughter of satan, supposed to be the end of the world, and dated a f*cking dragon"
    "so? she's still a good person"
    "*whose. learn some grammar before ranting sh*t"
"I think I recall a big f*cking dragon on the tower's roof..."
    "I'll never forget it, my dad called me then and told me it's okay that I'm gay and that he loves me anyways... I think he might've        thought the dragon was about to attack the city..."
        "haven't we all? XD"
~...~

"W-what?" Raven stuttered uncontrollably.

"Did you have any relationships after Malchior?" Raven opened her mouth, but before she could speak, he again stated. "Besides Aqualad."

"Jericho." Beast Boy's eyebrows shot up as he looked at her in disbelief.

~...~
"OMG, I'm so jelly, I luv J so much, he's such a cutie pie <3"
    "he's mute, lol XD"
        "so what?"
~...~

"Oh really?" he asked, obviously not believing her. Raven straightened herself. "You're serious" he realized, laying his wolf ears flat. She merely shrugged her shoulders nonchalantly and remained silent. Until Beast Boy snickered. "You dated him? The guy I found in mountains, like, among flowers and with his banjo?"

Raven rolled her eyes. "It's a guitar! You know it's a guitar, you own a guitar!"

"No, actually I own two" he corrected her casually.

"Whatever." She rolled her eyes again.

"But seriously? The blond, mute, cherub-like dude?"

"Being mute doesn't disqualify anyone" she argued.

"How did you communicate anyways?"

"Isn't it obvious?" she asked rhetorically.

"You both learned ASL?" he asked sarcastically, making Raven glare.

"We used telepathy, you idiot."

~...~
"Oh, yeah, that's super obvious for a normal person xD"
"and where's the place for privacy and the right to a few secrets? D:"
~...~

"Oh, now I know why you guys broke up." She looked at him with a curious frown. "He couldn't think sh!t with you on the trail of his every thought. Must've been hell for him."

Raven narrowed her eyes at him. "Do you even know how telepathy works?" Beast Boy thought for a second, before answering.

"No, not really actually."

"Telepathy isn't necessarily invading one's mind and reading everything you can. In our case it was more of a narrow communication channel through which we could send the thoughts which we wanted to share with one another."

"Oh. That actually sounds kinda cool" he admitted.

"Whatever."

"So why didn't it work out?"

“We just decided the long distance relationship won’t have any future.”

Beast Boy wrinkled his nose and regarded her. She didn’t look at him and her voice was trembling. She was obviously lying.
“I call bullsh!t. Why even start a relationship?”

“He liked me, I liked him. It just didn’t work out” she replied evasively.

“You can teleport, Rae. Distance isn’t a problem for ya." She looked him in the eyes. “What’d he do?”

“He didn’t do anything.”

Then it hit him. He smirked and his eyes glowed dangerously in the dim light of Minecraft torches.

~...~
“oh, dear lord, he looks so creepy right now! D:”
    “r u kidding me?! he’s totally sexy with the glowing eyes! <3”

~...~

“What’d ya do, Rae?” He asked teasingly. Raven stiffened and took a huge breath.

“Nothing. And stop calling me ‘Rae’” she demanded.

“Now you made me curious, what did you do?”

“I didn’t do anything” she repeated.

“So it’s about what you didn’t do?” he concluded. “Gee, mama, did he tell you he loves ya and you didn’t reciprocate?”

“What?” she asked, almost shrieking. “Where’d you get the idea from?!”

“No offence, Rae, but you can be pretty cold if it’s about feelings” he said, wrinkling his nose.

“This comes from a guy who claims to love me” she said in an accusing tone.

“It only means I love you despite your flaws.” He smirked slyly.

“Oh, right, because you’re so great” she spoke sarcastically with an eye roll.

“Why’d you break up with Jericho?” he cut her off, looking at her harshly. “What was so wrong that you couldn’t try to work it out? I know he’s a nice guy, probably the best for you, why would you…”

“He broke up with me, okay?” she spat and began pacing around the room again.

“I’m sorry” he said honestly.

“Well, yeah, I was, too” she admitted, irritation audible in her voice.

“So what happened?” Raven sighed aggravated and tilted her head back as if asking the heavens for help.

“He told me I was already in love with someone else and that he didn’t want to interrupt.”

Beast Boy seemed to regard his next words before speaking up.
“Well… was he right?” he asked and Raven stopped in her tracks. She looked at him. He was giving her this hopefull look.

“Even if he was, what would it change?” Wait, why did she say that? Didn't she want to finally listen to everyone's advice and try the stupid relationship with Gar? And here she was, again letting him know she wasn't interested? Why can't she just think before speaking?

“Who is it?” he asked coldly.

“What does it matter?”

“It just does. Who is it?”

“Beast Boy…” she said with pleading tone and shiny eyes.

“Well?”

"It's Jack." His eyebrows shot up again.

"You're in love with a guy named Jack" he stated doubtfully. Raven remained silent. "Who the hell is Jack?!" he flipped out. "Do I know him? What does he look like?"

"Remember the guy I met on that party Blackfire took us to?"

~...~
"who the f*ck is Jack? is it a Titan's real name?"
    "I'm Jack"
        "hit the road Jack, and don't you dare coming back anymore, it's Bae time!"
            "I see what you did there"
~...~

At first he just scowled, trying to remember, but then his eyes opened wide. "Noooo!" he drawled in disbelief.

"Yep, that's Jack. And I love him." Beast Boy made a disgusted face. "With all my heart. Since the night we met. I flipping love that guy."

Beast Boy's features softened as he came up with a realization. "Bull. Fvcking. Sh!t, Raven" he said accusingly. "You're lying. You don't love that Jack guy."

"How can you tell what I feel and for whom?" she defended herself.

"Okay, okay, fine. You love this Jack person. Does Jack love you back?"

Raven scoffed. "Of course he does."

"Then why aren't ya together?" Raven mumbled something under her breath. "What?" Beast Boy's ears stood errect.

"I said, because he's gay!" she said impatiently, rolling her eyes. She finally made the decision to sit down across from Beast Boy.

"Oh, yeah, I get that. So you guys were friends, you fell in love with him, then dated Aqualad and the love of your life just became so jealous..." he cut off. "No wait, that doesn't make any sense!" he exclaimed in a comical way. “Were you trying to make me jealous?”

Raven scoffed. “Pfft! No!” She took a strand of her hair and began twirling it on her finger. Then she asked with a little too much hope in her voice. “Did it work?”

“You freakin' troll, mama! You did say it to make me jealous!” He smirked. "Aw, Rae." He put a hand on his cheset. "That's so cute, I'm flattered."

"Whatever" she muttered, blushing profusely.

~...~
"Raven, you f*cking troll, you scared us Bae shippers with some unknown Jack guy XD"
"I don't f*cking believe it. Raven is a troll."
~...~

The only sound in the room was the wagging of Beast Boy's wolf tail, hitting the floor. But the once green Titan, being his impatient self, had to speak.

"So how did the relationship with Aqualad go?"

“We dated, then split up, what’s the big deal?” She shrugged, still playing with her hair, a habit he knew she took after Starfire. Or maybe it developed after she grew her hair out with that hair growth potion? We wasn't really sure now.

“So why’d you break up this time? He didn't want to interrupt the other guy, too?” he asked with a knowing smirk and Raven let out a groan.

“You’re pain in the ass, you know that?”

“So I’ve heard from a few girls…” he admitted proudly. Raven gave him a disgusted look.

“Ew. Just…. ew.”

“What? They wanted to try!”

“There’s no way a girl would want to try that!”

“Wanna bet?”

“You’re such a pig!”

“Normally I would turn into one, but can’t, so…” he grunted like a pig at her, earning an eye roll in return.

~...~
"Raven's such a virgin XD it's cute"
~...~

Another few moments of silence passed. "So how did you and Aqualad break up?"

Raven sighed. "It was a mutual decision."

"To do what?"

"To break up."

"Why?" Raven frowned and looked up at him.

~...~
"I bet it bugged her that he talks to fish"
    "more than he talked to her, and that's a serious communication problem if your bf rather talk to fish than you XD"
    "Beast Boy can become fish"
        "what's your point?"
            "lol"
"I think she felt threated by all those mermaids X3"
        "and I thought she just didn't feel safe around a pirate :D"
"he just smelled of fish, that's why"
"he was a little too fishy ;P"
"well, he was just never home, always out on the sea, on a search for another booty."
    "and then he gave her syphilis"
~...~

"Why do you want to know? Why are we even talking about my relationships?"

"I already know Aqualad's side, Rae." Raven froze, her gaze stuck on his green eyes. She looked like a deer caught in headlights.

"W-what did he tell you?" Damn, that stutter again.

"Go get 'er, tiger."

~...~
"lol rotfl lmao XD"
"I don't f*cking believe it"
    "type it one more time. I dare you. I double dare you mother-f*cker. Type it one more goddamn time"
    "I don't know who you are, I don't know what you want, but I will find you and I will kill you"
    "Everybody oranges! :D"
        "wut? o.O"
        "Lambada! :D"
            "f*cking trolls"
"Rae's face! omg, she's gonna murder someone XD"
~...~

"What?" she spat quickly.

"That's how he ended the conversation" he clarified calmly.

"Oh, he's dead" Raven said. "He's officially done. He's so done his own mother won't recognize his dead body!"

Beast Boy chuckled uncontrollably at her behavior.

"What are you laughing at?!" she snapped at him.

"Your short temper and hurt pride" he answered in a chuckle.

"You're lucky I don't have my powers right now!"

"Hey, at least you can yell it all out."

"I'm not a thing that can be 'gotten', you know?" she said after a few seconds of silence.

"I know." He still laughed.

"I feel offended" she added.

"I can see that."

Raven pouted for a few more seconds, while Beast Boy's laughter died out.

"What else did he say?" she asked with anger apparent in both her voice and posture.

Beast Boy pondered the question. "Well, he said that even though he tried and hoped and prayed, you wouldn't stop thinking about me. That he gives up, wishes me good luck and threated me that if I ever hurt you in any way, he'll send kraken for my sorry ass."

"He did?" she asked softer.

"Yeah."

"Azar, he's so sweet..."

"And then he said the..."

"'Go get her, tiger', yeah okay" she finished with an eye roll before mumbling her trademark 'whatever'. She hung her head low and fidgeted with her fingers.

"Rae?" Hearing him speak her name she looked up at him and awaited his question. "Why are you so afraid of me?" She frowned.

"Gar, I'm not afraid of you, I told you before..."

"Yeah, I meant the feelings."

"I don't understand" she said genuinely.

"Rae..." he licked his lips nervously and took her hand in his. "You've tried with a few guys. Why do you refuse to try with me?"

~...~
"Ooh, the sh*t just turned serious"
    "I think it was pretty serious from the very beginning..."
~...~

“I tried with them because I thought that maybe, someone would want me."

"I want you!" he interrupted, but she merely rolled her eyes at that.

"I didn’t try to seek love from them. You don’t need to love someone to be with them, it’s just a matter of getting used to the person.”

“You're kididng yourself" he cut her off, still holding her hand, squeezing it slightly. "I know you, Raven. You’re just another good girl that wants to love and be loved. And you did search for affection from those guys, just without the risk of getting hurt or putting your loved ones in danger. Well, it doesn’t work that way. Life sucks and love hurts. And either you try, trust the other person, love them and let them love you or you just stay all alone for the rest of you life.”

He stared at her for another long silent moment. When she still didn't say anything he spoke up again.
 
“Look at me" he asked gently and she shook her head. He noticed tears falling down on the wooden floor. "Please, Rae. You gave a shot to a guy zapped into a book. And you didn't even know him. Why do you reject me all the time?”

A sob came out of her throat before she finally looked up at him. "What if it doesn't work out?" she asked. "What if it ruins the friendship we have?"

"Rae..." He laughed bitterly, wiping a few tears from the side of her face that wasn't swollen. "It already did." A spasm shook her. "It always does. Sometimes going from friendship to love is only natural. Look, I can't stand you with another guy. Whoever comes near you, I wanna bite their hearts out and eat 'em. I mean, I'd do crazy sh!t for ya!" He watched her wipe the tears away and chew on her lip nervously.

“I may not be an absolute hunk from Atlantis...” He smiled hearing her let out something between a sob and a laugh. “But I know you well. We’re roommates and teammates for five years now. I know your routines and habits. I know what you like and what you don’t. I grew to know every tiniest piece of your body language. Like you chew on your lip when you’re nervous.” She immediately stopped chewing on her lip. “When you’re getting angry you get migraines so you rub your temples to stop them. You frown whenever you think intensely. You cock your eyebrow…" he cut off. "Well, in many cases, everything depends on the context and the kind of look you’re giving. It can be doubt, it can be surprise…” He watched her advert her gaze and push her hair behind her ear. He reached out and pushed the hair also from the bruised side of her face. She glanced at him blushing. “When you’re ashamed you look away and push your hair behind your ear. And you blush whenever I tell you something too suggestive. And then your eyes get all sparkly and dreamy.” She looked away again, pushing his hand from her bruised cheek. “I see things, Rae. I notice everything about you. It’s like having a Master’s or even Doctor’s degree on you.” She rolled her eyes hearing this. “Maybe if you let me I could get a Professor’s.” As he said this he caught her by her chin and made her look at him. “I know you’re scared, Rae…”

"It's not just that, Gar" she said, putting his hand down. "We disagree on almost everything. Every chance for a fight we get, we take it. We're so different..."

“We’re not as different as you think.” She frowned and gave him a look of disbelief.

“Where have you been all those years we fought and bickered?”

”Oh please, Rae. We were kids and obviously played the unwanted come-ons!” He chuckled. Raven rolled her eyes. “Do you know why I kept bringing you on edge all those years? Because I liked you being just you. Your normal, short-tempered self.”

“I’m not short-tempered” she defended herself, but he only snickered.

“Sure you are. You’re just too proud to admit it. Just like you were too proud to admit your fear, and you’re too proud to admit any of your feelings. You like to think you’re emotionless. But you’re still human.”

“Partially” she interjected bitterly.

“Still a human. And humans don’t do emotionless. But they do moody. They do anger. And even when I pester you too much and you lose your temper and go all demon mode, I’m not really afraid of you. Sure, you threw me into the ocean a few times, it only made me practice fast shifting under pressure.” He laughed lowly and Raven let a small smile on her lips. “But you never really hurt me. Like you never really lost control. And I trust you with your powers and with my life.”

“You know how my powers work” Raven whispered after a few seconds of thinkin gon his words. “Even if I wanted to try a relationship… it didn’t really work out with any of those guys I dated. And I didn’t love them. Well, most of them” she admitted bitterly. Beast Boy was listening closely. “Imagine what a havoc my powers would cause when I was with the one I actually held some feelings for.”

If it was possible, his wolf ears perked up even more. Did she just say…?

~...~
“Did she just officially admit she liked him the same?”
“This is too rich”
“Is someone recording this from the beginning?”
"I ship it"
~...~

“You just love to make yourself a martyr, don’t you?” he chuckled lowly.

“Excuse me?” she asked, frowning at him.

“We may be different outside, Rae, because we wear different masks for the world. But inside we’re just the same. We’re hurt and scared. You’re not the only one to fight your inner demon. Imagine that, I have my demon too. The beast. Actually all hordes of beasts. All with very different instincts, with very different tempers. It's like having zillion personalities. They tear at my humanity, just like your demon side tears at yours. And our dark sides scare the crap out of us. We hate them, we want them out, we can’t get rid of them. You’re scared that one day you’ll lose it, that you’ll become a demon, like your father. Well, I’m scared that one day I’m gonna lose it, give into my animal instincts. Become a mindless beast.”

It sounded all too familiar. He was saying all this with such anger and pain only she could relate to. She knew he wasn’t stupid, that he’d notice their common ground. And she was always scared he’d make it his advantage. Obviously the doom’s day had come.

“Beast Boy…” He didn't let her say anything more.

“Can you imagine that we both have procedures named after us? Robin knows about our problems and he’s prepared for any circumstance. You know that, right?” She simply nodded. The ‘Raven’ and ‘Beast’ procedures were last resort, in case they actually lost it someday. They both knew it, and somehow it made them both feel safer. “Weird, isn’t it?” he asked. “There’s no ‘Starfire’ or ‘Cyborg’ procedure. At least not yet. What d’ya think it means?” he asked and before she could open her mouth he continued. “It means we’re both the most dangerous in our team.” They locked eyes. “I already told you I’m not scared of you, Rae. And that I trust you with everything. Do you trust me? Or are you scared of me?”

”How can you still ask me that?” she asked upset. “I told you before, I’m not afraid of you.”

“Why, because Raven ‘don’t do fear’?” he mocked. “From my experiences with you I can take that you also ‘don’t do love’ and ‘don’t do feelings and relationships’. Maybe you ‘don’t do trust’ too?”

“I trust you, if I didn’t I would’ve left the team a long time ago.”

~...~
“Are they soulmates or what? :D
    “mates being the key word”
"Why is he jumping from caring to mean? I don't like that :("
~...~

“So you completely trust me with everything?” he asked.

“You know I do, Gar.” She looked at him imploringly. She was so tired.

"Then why do you keep doing this to me Rae? What's so hard in just trying?"

“It’s not that simple.”

“Why not?”

“You know why, Gar" she began slightly irritated. "You perfectly know why. Because I’m a half-demon, I'm emotionally unstable and my powers are a threat. And on top of it all, I'm being chased by a guy who thinks he'll do my father a favor if he rapes my ass and brings him here. Which is stupid on its own, my father will do as he pleases anyway.”

~...~
“Nice”
“What?! OAO”
“I don’t think any of it is good…”
~...~

"My turn" he announced melodically and began counting on his fingers. "I'm genetically modified, I use humor to escape my emotional problems, my powers are a threat, too, and... uh..." he scratched his head while thinking. "What will rival the rapist and bad dad...?"

"What the hell are you talking about?" she asked with a tired frown.

"Oh, sorry, weren't we exchanging the most obvious things we already know about each other?" he asked calmly, but obviously he was being sarcastic to no end. Raven frowned at that.

"Since when do you use so much sarcasm?"

"Since I spent a little too many nights with you just talking and being together!" Beast Boy raised his voice, sounding frustrated and making her start slightly at the volume. "Did that ever cross your mind?"

Raven remained silent, her eyes boring into his soul.

~...~
"nights? what nights? did they sleep together? o.O I wanna know! >x<*"
"huh. so in the end we don't really know them, even if they make the Q&A."
    "Yeah, who would've thought they actually spent countless nights talking and bonding and falling for each other?"
        "I would."
            "You don't count XD"
                "Thanks, man XD But seriously, it was obvious to me -.-;"
                    "Look out, we've got a badass detective over here. How did you come up with this from Raven's mean behavior? :P"
~...~

Beast Boy walked closer to Raven and put his hands on her arms, gently rubbing them.

"Did you ever think about it?"

"That because of all the time we spent together you'd become me? No." She replied bitterly.

"I wouldn't spend so much time with you if I didn't want to, Rae" he stated, pushing her black hair behind her right ear. "But I gotta tell you, I quite enjoyed having some quality time with you." He added, brushing her cheek tenderly. Her face covered with blush, but her eyes glistened with tears. Soon she gently pushed his hand away.

“I’m sorry, Gar, but it’s just impossible" she said looking him in the eyes apologetically. "You spent so much time with me, you know how I work. My powers are triggered by my emotions and love and relationships are full of strong emotions..."

Beast Boy strolled away from her, pushing his hand through his long brown hair, showing off his burned back to her. Then he rubbed his face as if toget rid of all the frustration.

“Just forget about me” she pleaded. He turned abruptly to face her and snapped.

“I tried, believe me, but it’s fvcking hard to just simply forget your mate! Especially when you live with me, ya know?!”

She was obviously ready for this reaction, for she didn't even as much as blinked at his growly voice.
"What do you want me to say?" she asked meekly after a moment. Beast Boy rolled his eyes.

"I dunno. Maybe that you're afraid of being happy?“ he suggested accusingly with a shrug. Her brow furrowed.

“I’m sorry, for being rational…!”

"Love don't do rational!" he interrupted her words. “And maybe if you weren’t so scared and focused on your powers going haywire, maybe they wouldn’t!”

“That’s the stupidest thing I’ve ever heard!” she spat irritated.

~...~
"Agreed, that's just stupid"
    "But it may just work"
~...~

“It’s simple, yeah! But sometimes simple’s the best! You’re so focused on yourself and your stupid powers that you forget about other people who may need some affection from you!”

”If I didn’t focus on having my powers under control they would just go nuts!”

“Maybe, maybe not” he said with a nonchalant shrug.

“You’re an idiot!” she shook her head with disbelief.

“Maybe I’m and idiot because I even dared to fall for ya, huh?!”

“I didn’t say that!” she countered.

“A guy tells ya he loves ya and you just don’t wanna hear it!”

“You know the reason-…!”

“I don’t give a fvck!” That silenced her. “I love you and you don’t even want to admit you have feelings for me!”

“I don’t have to listen to this!” she said, visibly frustrated, got up and opened the door, but he stopped her in the threshold. He caught her by the elbow and didn’t intend to let go.

“I need to be alone, Beast Boy!”

“You’re not going anywhere! The priest is still somewhere there, and I told you, I will not get my eyes off you from now on! Besides the mobs are-…!”

“It’s day, Beast Boy” she interrupted him. “We were arguing all night.” He looked outside, it was indeed daylight.

“Doesn’t matter, I didn’t finish talking with you.” He quickly said.

“Well, I’m done talking to you! Let go!” She punched his healthy arm, but he didn’t even loosen his grip and her arm began to hurt under his fingers.

“What are you so afraid of, Raven?! That you’ll actually be happy with me?!”

“Let go!”

“Even if we don’t work out, we can deal with it later!”

”Beast Boy, please!” She felt new tears form in her eyes and he saw it, but continued nonetheless.

“I fvcking love you! All of you! I want to make you smile all the time, I want you to be happy!”

“STOP IT! STOP! THAT’S ENOUGH!”

He finally went silent, but didn’t let go of her elbow, just slightly loosened his grip on her. She wasn’t trying to free herself anymore. She just looked at him, all in tears, sniffing and losing her breath.

“Don’t do this to me Beast Boy…” she said through tears and choked on them.“Please don’t do this…” She shook her head and bowed it low. “If this won’t work out…” Choke. She looked up at him. “I won’t live through this. I won’t survive another heartbreak and losing a friend. Just please don’t do this to me…”

~...~
“whoa, some serious trust issues she’s got”
"drama queen -.-"
“I get her, I’m as scared as she is when it comes to relationships”
~...~

“Rae” he said softly but, firmly and let go of her arm cupping her face instead. “I’m not Malchior. I’m your friend. And I’ll always be.” He wiped a stream of tears from her bruised cheek with his thumb, gently so not to hurt her. “I’m not going to be disappointed in you. I already know you. I know the pros and cons. And I’m not going to force myself on you. I want you to admit what you feel and then think about it.” She hung her head again and shook it slightly. “I know you’re scared. But I’m not gonna hurt you. And I trust you won’t hurt me.” He caught her by the chin and made her look up at him. Once their eyes met, Beast Boy smiled at her and tenderly caressed her cheek. “Now let’s calm down” he said, stroking her hair. “Close the door” he closed it. “And let’s take a nap.”

Raven shook her head a little too vigorously.
“I don’t want to sleep.”

“Aren’t you tired?” he asked surprised.

“I won’t fall asleep” she explained. He sighed.

“I’m sorry, Rae.” She shook her head again, but didn’t say anything more. He hugged her and she didn’t have the strength to brush him off. It was nice feeling his warm body around her. And soothing. After a long moment of just basking in his warmth and listening to his heartbeat, she stifled a yawn, wiping the remnants of tears from her face.

“Let’s just sit for a while then” he suggested and they sat down. She dozed off in a matter of seconds and soon he joined her.
Livestream On, Powers Off ch_6 remastered!
Yeah, I'm bad at suspense. ;P

Ok, so I waited long time (and kinda forgot I was writing this shit) and no one told me to stop or keep going so I'm just gonna put it to the point when I'm content with it. And unfortunately for ... I dunno for whom, me or you (probably me, cause I write this stuff and you just click 'lol nope :D') it's gonna take a few more chapters. Unless I'm going to make them twice as long. And maybe I will, for my own convenience.

Edit Jan 2017: this chapter is remastered. I'm fitting the whole story after The Titans Trade (relevant chapters: Q&A#20 and The Titans Trade)

Edit Mar 2017: lol, remastered twice XD nope, I just added a moment from the next chapter because it's better undivided like it used to be. Lol, enojy the drama.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Beast Boy ducked from another swing of the sword, grasped the man’s wrist and dug his new, sharp teeth into the forearm. The scream of his victim was delightful. According to the plan, he let go of his ridiculous toothpick. Beast Boy pulled the guy’s arm and threw the hopeless creature behind himself. He quickly turned his face to the dark-haired bastard and looked as he fell face first to the ground. He didn’t wait for him to get up. He turned him face up, then punched him straight on the already bleeding nose. The cartilage cracked under his fist. Then another punch. Then claws. He clawed at his face and all over the body. The man’s screaming ceased, but Beast Boy still clawed furiously. Then suddenly he stopped his motion, gasping and watching the bloody body before him. It didn’t move, but was still breathing faintly. He let go of his last instincts. He howled. A few, loud, proud howls. Calling his mate. When he heard some howling response from the wolves of Minecraft he got a grip on his consciousness. He realized howling was pointless. The beast in his mind considered her his mate. But she wasn’t really his and she could not respond to him.

He glanced at his prey and stifled the urge to vomit at the sight of his work. He looked around, picked up the man’s sword and then went to take his bundle. He was hurt, covered in stinky and sticky blood, tired. But he knew he needed to find Raven. He sniffed the air. It was good to have his senses back. Although, they may have been a little stronger than normally. She would now know her theory about their powers was right. And he would have to explain some things to her. But it didn’t matter now. He caught her scent and followed it without even glancing back.

~...~
“I hope someone is recording this.”
“They need a soundtrack.”
"He nearly killed the f*cker!"
~...~

Cyborg heard distant howls of wolves. It started with one, really far away, and it sounded powerful. He didn’t know wolves in Minecraft could howl. He had never heard it before. Could it have something to do with Beast Boy? Could the first howl be his? If he got his powers back, he might’ve turned into a wolf and try to find them all by scents.
Cyborg continued to build the stairs in his wide tower and prayed he was at least at some level right.


When Starfire heard the first howl she couldn’t shake the feeling it meant something. The feeling of concern and worry filled her heart and soul as she heard the other howls join the first one. She sat up on the leather she has been lying on and glanced around. Robin hasn’t come back from his search yet and she was getting more anxious with every minute of the distant howling. She finally got up to her feet and ran to the hole Robin had disappeared in. She hollered his name, panic evident in her voice, but got no response. She then decided to attempt acting on her suspicions. She took her communicator and thanked X’hal, for she had the reach.

“Starfire calling Beast Boy” she said through the mic. “Starfire to Beast Boy, over. Friend, do you copy?”

Beast Boy’s face appeared on the screen.

I do, Star.” Starfire sighed with relief. He seemed OK, a little tired, bruised and in a hurry, concluding from his hurried walk.

“Thank X’hal, you are unharmed. I have heard the…” she silenced and furrowed her brow, suddenly noticing the change in his looks. “Friend, have you attempted to change your form?”

Now it was Beast Boy’s turn to frown. “No, why?

Starfire’s eyes were huge like saucers and they were seemingly boring into his soul.
“Your appearance had changed. You have… ears.”

That’s not weird at all” he defended, but the redhead shook her head.

“You have misunderstood, friend. I meant the ears of the dog creature. And your hair is somewhat longer…”

Beast Boy seemed to stop and glanced at himself. Indeed, his now longer hair was hanging from his head. He touched his head and felt his dog… actually wolf ears. He also noticed his gloves were ripped from the new found claws instead of human nails.

Oh dude! How the hell that happened?

“Are you not the one to know?”

Then I guess Raven was right…” he muttered under his breath and resumed his walk.

“What was Raven right about?” Starfire asked curiously.

Uh, she had a theory that maybe if we feel emotions strong enough they would trigger our powers to act on us again.” He explained. “And I seemed to prove it just few minutes ago, so if you want to feel things, feel whatever makes you use your powers.” He smiled at her.

“That is wonderful news! How did friend Raven come to such conclusion?”

Uh… I’ll tell you later… maybe. Why’d you call?” Quick change of topics. Typical for Beast Boy when he doesn’t want to reveal something. It was unusual for Beast Boy to hide things from Starfire, but she decided not to push. She would probably find out anyways.

“I have heard the howls and grew concerned. Should I be worried?” Was it just her or did Beast Boy blush?

I must’ve kinda started the whole howling session.

“Oh?” That sounded interesting. “And why did you howl, friend?”

Should he tell her? Or rather not?
Ok, according to Raven’s theory I felt some strong emotions that probably started, but didn’t finish, my change and I kinda acted on my instincts and started howling, nothing to be concerned about.” He explained on one exhale. It was a good thing Starfire knew him for a few years now and was able to understand his fast talking. Also, she might’ve practiced a little more language. Kissing Robin paid off.

“I see.” She nodded resolutely. “And what kind of emotions did you feel?”

Baaad…” he chuckled sheepishly.

“Were they towards friend Raven, who is now apparently absent?”

W-what? N-no. I mean... uh… I don’t wanna talk about it.

“Understood.”

Is the interrogation over yet?” he asked quite impatiently.

“I believe so, yes” Starfire admitted with a nod and Beast Boy sighed in relief.

Great, can we finish? I’d like to go find her.

“As you wish friend. I hope we will be in contact.”

Me too. Bye.” And saying that, he hung up. Starfire sighed. There was something wrong. Beast Boy usually trusted her with everything. She was the first to know about his crush on Raven, even before Cyborg (who would undoubtedly mock his green friend, without restraints). Robin liked to play oblivious, but he was actually the first to notice anything happening between Raven and Beast Boy, and he didn't hesitate to share his observations with his girlfriend. It didn't change the fact that Beast Boy had come to her with almost anything he had on his mind and she always listened and comforted him. She also gave him some advice, but was never sure if they were of any use. She still had tamaranean mentality. Oh, how she hoped her friends were the OK. And where the hell is Robin?!
She decided to move her cute little butt form her spot when suddenly she heard a scream from inside the hole in the wall. Robin emerged from the darkness with a single torch.

“Robin?” she asked thoroughly confused. Without a word he threw the torch to the floor and started to build up the wall with planks. When he finished, he dropped to the floor himself and panted. Starfire kneeled beside him and put a hand on his arm with her eyes answering the unspoken question for her.

“I found a zombie spawner” he said, but it was no explanation for her. She just noted in her mind that it had something to do with the dangerous things from the game of Minecraft. She shook her head slowly. “So what’s up? What did you do all this time?” he asked, his breath a little calmer now.

“I have talked to friend Beast Boy.”


It seems like she had been sitting there for a whole eternity, hugging her knees to her chest, staring mindlessly on the falling waters. She didn’t move this whole time, she merely blinked and breathed. She stiffled the urge to cry a long time ago, she was so tired of crying. It only made you feel worse with the rhinitis and the headaches afterwards and what not. She just decided to relax. She tried to meditate, but it just didn’t work, so she just turned off her thoughts and stared, hoping this would help her. So she had no idea how long she was just sitting there and she didn’t take attempt to think about it, she just didn’t care. Not in the slightest. But then she heard him say her name in a broken voice and she just couldn’t fight the urge to look at him.
She raised her head to look at him through the wall of falling water. She wasn’t surprised to see him. After hearing his howls she knew he would come to her sooner or later. She was only wondering if he would be in control of himself, because he clearly lost it earlier. He still wasn’t green. Actually dark blood was spotting all over his figure. Whether it was his or not, she wasn’t sure. He looked awful, like something the cat had dragged in. And so the urge to cry came back to her. He had saved her and she left him there, she was ashamed. And how much more she was ashamed and embarrassed that she actually needed his help, his protection. She felt the tears sting under her eyelids, her throat tightened and her lower lip quivered dangerously. She didn’t trust herself to say a word or to look at him anymore so she rested her head and tried to suppress the tears again. Didn’t really work.
Beast Boy looked at her, hugging her knees and probably crying. His heart broke into thousands of pieces. He wanted to come to her, hug her, tell her she was safe with him. Assure her it was okay now. But at the same time he was afraid she might be scared of him now. Maybe she didn’t want him around. Maybe she hates him now. Beast Boy noticed her tighten the grip on her legs. Not really thinking much he went into the water and swam under the waterfall. It washed most of the blood off of him. Not all of it, but enough. The water was cool and nice against his heated skin and the burns on his back. He entered the cavity and went to Raven, kneeling in front of her, all drenched in water. He only heard her deep breathing stop dead. He reached out to her and barely brushed her palm. Raven jerked her head up and immediately retracted her hand from his. She looked at him like a scared animal, as if her heart was about to fall out of her chest. He put his extended had on his knee.

“Geez, Rae” he said, making a huge effort to sound casual. “If I didn’t know you I’d think you’re scared of me.” As he said it, he felt his throat tighten and he got so insecure he felt tears forming in his eyes, but they stopped right there, not going further. “Are you?” His voice broke.

~...~
“She’s in aftershock or something…”
“Of course, she’s scared of you, you turned into a bloodthirsty monster, massacred that guy and screamed she belonged to you, who the f*ck wouldn’t be scared of you now?! You’re dangerous, you freak! You should be put to prison, or a zoo, or a circus at least!”
~...~

Raven was looking at him. He saw the tears glistening in her eyes and awaited the dreaded answer. She obviously didn’t trust herself with speaking, because she only shook her head ‘no’.

~...~
“wut? O.O she’s not scared of him. wtf’s wrong with her? OAO”
“Either she’s mentally ill or in love.”
    “It’s the same thing”
    “I vote for love”
“That oughta be love”
“I don’t f*cking believe it”
~...~

Beast Boy felt relief wash over him. But he had further doubts.

“And I would never hurt you. You know that. Right?“ His voice had failed him the second time. Raven merely nodded in response. They both didn’t say anything for a few seconds, each being lost in their own thoughts.

“Did he hurt you?” Raven glanced at him again wondering what he meant and if she should tell him about the throbbing and swelling place on the left side of her face. She shook her head ‘no’ again.

~...~
“What do you mean, he didn’t hurt you?! He backhanded you and then hit your face on the ground! OAO”
"Talk about denial"
~...~

Beast Boy nodded, but had a feeling she lied to him.

“He scared you, didn’t he?” They looked each other in the eyes, but she didn’t speak. He just saw new tears form. “Don’t look at me like a wounded doe deer, say something…” he pleaded.

“He surprised me” she whispered as her lip quivered slightly. “I didn’t even know what hit me…” she started choking on air as tears dropped from her eyes. She covered her mouth with her hand and tried not to cry.

“Shh, Rae.” He tried to soothe her. “Don’t…” he started as he reached to pull the damp her from her face but immediately lost his train of thought when he saw what was hiding underneath. She had a cut eyebrow and lip, and her cheekbone and eye were badly bruised and colored purple. “Jesus Christ, Raven! You said he didn’t hurt you!”

“Technically he didn’t…” she said.

“Uh, technically he DID. Did you see yourself? That’s nasty! Half of your face is purple!"

“Oh, that. He wore some signets.” She looked away as he was still looking closely at her major bruise.

“And slapped you?!”

“Backhanded.”

“He what?!”

“Twice.”

“I should’ve killed him” he muttered, slightly touching her eyebrow. She grunted and pushed his hand away.

“And he might’ve hit this side of my face on the ground…” Upon hearing this Beast Boy looked her in the eyes. His lips turned into thin line.

“I’ll kill the bastard” he declared and got up, but Raven quickly grasped his wrist.

“I’m sure you’ve done enough.” He turned his face at her and locked eyes with her.

“No, Rae, I haven’t. Now let me go, I’ll finish what I started.” He pulled his hand, but her grip was strong.

“Don’t!” He turned to her abruptly, his eyes mad and his nose wrinkled. He bared his fangs, his wolf ears were erect and forward.

“You belong to my pack, Raven! He tried to hurt you! Attacked you! And no one attacks MY pack!!!” he yelled, his voice turning into slight growl. He was furious and ready to find this man and end his life, she knew that. She didn’t need her empathic powers to know.

~...~
“Beware, beast mode is on again!”
“Why is she stopping him?! The bastard don’t deserve to live, he’s a trash!”
“They’re superheroes, they don’t kill people, they put them in jail”
~...~

“Please calm down, Gar” she pleaded, feeling her eyes begin to fill with tears again.

“I won’t! How can you ask me to calm down?! He assaulted you!”

“Stop it!” He kneeled again and cupped her right cheek in his hand.

“Rae. He knew what he was doing. He got you at your most vulnerable and used that. He surprised you, hit you…”

“Well, I did bit him and hit his throat…” she cut in, pushing his hand away.

“Are you defending him?!” he asked with disbelief.

“I’m just saying that killing is wrong, Beast Boy!”

“Oh yeah?! So is raping!”

Raven couldn’t stand his furious gaze and looked down, swallowing hard and trying to control her breathing.

~...~
“I think I know what’s BB’s opinion on the death penalty…”
“I’m with B, I can’t understand Raven’s position. She’s the victim, she should want the guy to rot in hell”
    “Maybe she does. It doesn’t mean she wants to kill him herself or let BB kill him.”
        “uh.. hello?! She’s a demon, didn’t you hear? and demons like to kill”
            “That information is unconfirmed”
~...~

“He didn’t accomplish anything” she insisted.

“But tried! And he would finish what he started if only he’d unhook the stupid button!”

She didn’t answer him, mostly because she knew he was right.
“Just calm down, would you?” She sounded a little frustrated, and tired. Seeing another wave of tears in her eyes he decided to take few deep breaths. Maybe he was acting inappropriately. But how do you react to something like that? It’s not like they were fighting a criminal and she could’ve braced herself. She was defenseless at the moment and Beast Boy just couldn’t handle the injustice. But maybe she needed him to be calm right now. Maybe he wasn’t helping her at all. She probably just needed some support. He decided to try and turn to his normal self through a joke.

“See, I told ya thousand times, you shouldn’t run around with bare legs like that and now look.” He felt his failure wash over him. He didn’t believe this joke and she may even feel insulted. Great thinking, BB. “And Cyborg told you, and Robin told you…”

“It wasn’t even like that” she whispered. He frowned in confusion as he glanced at her.

“What d’ya mean?” Raven inhaled deeply.

“He had another… higher reason to… assault me” she explained, wiping a stray tear from her cheek.

“I don’t get it.” He shook his head frowning. “What ‘re ya talkin’ about?”

“I don’t know.” Her voice started to tremble slightly and she played with her shaking fingers nervously. “He was talking something about a prophecy…”

“Oh god, not a prophecy again!” Beast Boy sighed and rubbed his face with his hand.

“I know, it’s like I’m cursed or something.” Raven rolled her eyes.

~...~
“prophecy AGAIN? that doesn’t sound good, can I start panicking?”
~...~

“Anyways, he said something that the prophecy says that when he marries me…”

“Whoa, whoa, hold on!” Beast Boy held his hands up. “I know how to marry a girl, and that’s not what he was trying to do. I’m not that dumb.”

“Actually, he’s the priest of the Church of Blood, they initiate marriage by sexual intercourse.” Beast Boy made a face and Raven let out an exasperated sigh. “It’s a cult worshiping my father.” His eyebrows shot up.

“Your father has a cult?” She didn’t answer.

~...~
“Her father has a cult? Whose daughter is she, Satan’s? OAO”
~...~

“You knew about it and you didn’t care to share the information?” She didn’t respond, avoiding his gaze. “Does Robin know?”

“I didn’t think it was important. Everything seemed like they weren’t active anymore” she explained hastily.

“He’s gonna be pissed” he sighed, going his hand through his hair.

“Then don’t tell him.” Beast Boy couldn’t believe his ears. And his hearing was much better now, having wolf ears had its perks. But did she just ask him to do what he thought?

“Don’t you think it’s pretty important?”

“No. I mean, I’ll tell him later, just… not now.”

“Why not?”

~...~
“good question. maybe cause she's evil and wants to end the world?”
~...~

“Because.” She sighed and fidgeted a little. “He’s going to want to know how I found out they were active…”

“And you don’t want him to know their priest wanted to rape you” he finished her thought for her.

“I just… it’s not easy…”

“You don’t want to relive things, I get it. But it’s important. He needs to know about potential danger. And though I haven’t heard the rest of this prophecy I assume we’re screwed.”

“According to the priest’s words if he succeeds in ‘marrying me’ the world will end.”

“Wait, the world will end as in ‘your father will be summoned again’ or as in ‘the sky will crumble and the…’?”

~...~
“her father will be summoned – means he’s a demon or at least some evil spirit, she must be evil too.”
    “she doesn’t seem evil to me. maybe  a little creepy, but without her cloak she’s just a normal, pale girl. And she does work for the Titans, Titans aren’t evil.”
        "You're so naive. Evil things are clever enough to pretend being good."
~...~

“Is it really important? He said it will end the world. I don’t know how exactly it will work, sorry, I was rather focusing on making him let go of me, pushing him away, hitting him, biting, crying, begging…” her voice started to crack again and tears formed themselves in her eyes. She put her hand to her lips, trying to suppress the cry in her throat.

“Rae…”

“I can’t believe I’m somebody’s pawn again…” she uttered in a whisper.

“It’s not your fault, Rae.”

~...~
“See? even if her father’s evil she probably despises him. Or so I hope. She can’t be evil.”
“I get the feeling she’s a victim in more ways than we know”
    “I get the feeling having her near is trouble by itself. I’m moving to Mexico”
        “If the world ends Mexico will not save you, moron”
~...~

“I know.” She sniffed. “And it’s even more unfair!” Few tears escaped her eyes and she quickly wiped them from her face. “Oh, Azar, I’m pathetic.”

“No you’re not” he denied, sitting closer to her.

“Yes, I am.” Sniff. “He didn’t even do anything and I’m crying as if he did.”

“I’m sure it’s normal reaction” he comforted her, fighting the urge to hug her. She was so vulnerable right now, so fragile. She was just herself. And the fact that she was an adorably tiny person didn’t help his want to embrace her.

“No, it’s not, he didn’t hurt me the way he wanted to-…!”

“But he tried” he cut her off and stared her straight in the eyes. “He took you by surprise, invaded your personal space, abused you…”

“Stop” she pleaded tears falling uncontrollably from her lashes. Her breath was shaky and she wiped the tears from her face but next ones rolled down her cheeks and she attempted to wipe those too, but Beast Boy suddenly took her wrists in his grip.

“Don’t do that, Rae.”

“What?” She looked at him confused and choked a little.

”Just let them fall.”

“No, I can’t…” she shook her head and tried to free her hands but he held her firmly.

“Yes you can. It’s probably the only time that you can cry and not think about your powers go haywire.” She didn’t look at him, still sobbing but trying to suppress it.

“Look. It may be once in a lifetime. You can now cry for all the times when you wanted to cry but didn’t let yourself.” Raven glanced at him from behind her damp eyelashes and he knew it was his chance to get to her. He continued. “For all the times when you were hurt or angry or frustrated. For every freaking fear you ever had. For every time someone used you like a puppet and then left you behind. For every single mean word you heard or said and regretted saying it. For every physical or emotional pain, you can cry now.”
He watched as her lower lip quivered uncharacteristically. She bit on it and refused to let her tears fall. She closed her eyes. “You may even get your powers back.” She stole a glance of his eyes, but turned her gaze away again, hanging her head low. “Or at least some part of ‘em. I mean, look at me, a went berserk on that guy and almost changed my form. Though I’m don’t think I can change back, you’ll have to call me Wolf Boy from now on.” He chucked slightly. Raven let out a sound that may have been a small laugh. A laughter through tears. It was a start.
“It’s okay to cry, Raven.” She shook her head. He decided to let go of her right wrist and reached his hand to her face, making her look up at him. The tears were so pent up in her eyes she probably couldn’t see him clearly, but still didn’t let them fall. “It’s okay to feel hurt. It doesn’t mean you’re weak, it means you’re alive, Rae.”

A tear finally escaped her and she put her free hand to her mouth. Seeing this Beast Boy let go of her and she immediately covered her whole face, as if embarrassed. A few sobs shook her frame and Beast Boy just couldn’t help himself anymore. He put his arm around her and pulled her to his chest, being careful not to press the bruised side of her face to him. She stiffened for a second and stopped her sobbing. He was afraid she would scream at him or hit him for invading her space like that, but none of it happened.

“It’s okay” he said, embracing her with both of his arms now. “I won’t let my eyes off you this time.” After hearing this Raven somehow relaxed into him and another sob shook her. She pressed her right cheek to his collarbone and cried into the left side of his neck, staining his uniform with new tears. Not that it mattered, he was in water a few moments ago. But what surprised him the most was when she grasped his torso with her arms. It didn’t matter that her nails were a little painfully piercing into his skin. She was crying. She was hugging him. She was letting herself go. She was cleansing her heart and soul from the pent up feelings and emotions that hunted her all this time. Beast Boy let himself strengthen his grasp on her with one hand and the other started to stroke her still slightly damp hair.

~...~
“OMG, ‘it doesn’t mean you’re weak, it means you’re alive’ he bought me, I luv him QAQ”
“He’s good, I’m crying too TT–TT”
“Who else is crying right now?”
“i can;t even see wut im writin…”
“He may be a jackass sometimes, but he’s a good friend”
“Ah, the feels…”
“So much fluff… can’t handle… must resist the tears…”
“When did he come up with all that?”
“He obviously knows her well. Suck it Aqualad, that's why he's better than you. Bae forever!!!!”
“Crying from time to time is good, lets some steam off of you.”
“what a sap, he probably cries a lot XD”
    ”That’s just mean, he’s helping her work through her feelings, doesn’t mean he’s a sap or that he cries a lot.”
“I think I’m in love. Are all the titan boys so nice and cool and everything?”
    “You remember he’s originally a green-skinned and -haired elf, right?”
        “I always thought the ears were cute ;P
            “You’re weird O.O”
“Ok, first Star cries, now Raven cries? why are they so emotional? aren’t they supposed to be tough? They fight criminals, for f*ck’s sake!”
    “They’re women, we’re all emotional. And in case you didn’t notice, Raven’s got a hard time. And what does it mean, they fight             criminals? Can’t they stay feminine and do that?”
        “She’s a demon, you’d think a demon girl would be a little more badass or something”
            “Did you ever see her fighting? she IS a badass”
                “She couldn’t even defend herself from a rapist, what is so badass about her?”
~...~

After a long while Raven’s crying ceased, but Beast Boy didn’t let go of her. He was still embracing her and she wouldn’t mind if it lasted longer, she felt safe with him. But she didn’t want him to know. However she would take whatever he was going to let her have. She looked up at him. He leaned his head on the wall behind him and his eyes were closed, he seemed relaxed.

“Beast Boy?” she started weakly, just slightly above a whisper. She was a little tired and sleepy after the crying session, and she felt a migraine start.

“M?” He didn’t open his eyes nor moved in any way.

“You’re invading my personal space…”

~...~
“XD That was cute”
~...~

Just then Beast Boy’s eyes snapped open and he realized she wasn’t hugging him anymore. Blood rushed to his face.

“Right. S-sorry” he stuttered as he let go of her. She managed to sit up on her own, trying not to notice his stutter. “Better?” She nodded, not looking at him but at her hands.

“But I guess I was wrong.” Beast Boy’s ears perked up.

“About what?”

“About our powers being triggered by strong emotions.” She sighed.

“Nothing came back?” he asked surprised. Raven looked up at him and shook her head slightly. “Not even empathy?” She shook her head once more. “Huh. That’s weird.”

“Why?” it was her turn to ask.

“No, it’s just… I’m pretty sure that’s what triggered my, uh… ”

“Unfinished change?” she helped him. He nodded. They both went silent, thinking.

“Wrong kind of emotion?” he asked as if to himself.

”I don’t think so” she denied.

“Wasn’t strong enough?” He tried.

“May be” she replied. “Or maybe not. Did you reach for your powers?”

“I don’t think so… I guess not” he said slowly.

“So you aren’t sure” she concluded.

“I guess. What’s your point? You probably reached for your powers when he attacked you, right?”

She was perfectly still for a second, blinked and then relaxed, biting on her nail.

“Yeah, you’re right…” she admitted. “I’m lost.”

“Me too, I say we drop it.”

“Yeah.” She sighed heavily and then looked at him. She noticed the long gush on his left upper arm, still bleeding. “Beast Boy, you’re hurt!” she said with reproach and attempted to put her hand on his arm to heal the wound.

“It’s just a scratch.” He neglected, grasping her wrist.

“The wound is deep!”

“Rae, you don’t have your powers.” That sobered her.

“Oh” she managed to say. She hung her head as he let go of her hand.

“Yea. There’s nothing you can do, Rae.” She frowned upon hearing this and looked at him angrily.

“I told you a thousand times, don’t call me that.” She approached him.

“I was calling you that a million times today and you never flinched. Hey!” he said as she tore his right sleeve of his uniform. “What d’ya think you’re doing?!”

She tore the sleeve to strips. “Making a bandage for you.” She then looked up at him and gave him a glare. “That’s something I can do. I don’t need my powers to survive or to help. I can use my knowledge.” He didn’t oppose when she tore the other sleeve from his uniform and tore it into strips. He just watched her actions carefully. Her moves were steady. She took one strip of the new bandage and went to the waterfall to moisten it a little more than it already was. She then came back to him and started to clean the wound. Doing so, she shook her head slightly.

~...~
“Aw, that’s so nice of her.”
    “It’s called being cute :)

~...~

“You're gonna need stitches” she muttered as she took another strip and applied pressure to the wound.

“Too bad” he said, trying not to show her it hurt. He finally growled lowly and Raven reduced the pressure.

“Sorry.”

”It’ll hurt anyways.”

Silence overwhelmed the cavity. Raven was wondering why he hasn’t complained about the wound. Usually when he was hurt or sick he behaved as if he was dying. And now when the wound is actually pretty deep (not to even mention his burned back), he didn’t even squeak about it or made a face. Instead he took care of her. Was he so preoccupied with her he decided to brush his health off?

“Why didn’t you say something earlier?” she berated him.

“Didn’t hurt all that bad.” This made her look at him in disbelief, her eyebrows both up. “What? It really didn’t.” Raven didn’t say anything, only glanced at the wound checked if the bleeding stopped. It looked decent so she started the bandaging.

~...~
“Why am I getting an impression he wants her to think he’s that tough? XD”
    “Cause he digs her, thus wants to impress her.”
~...~

After she was done bandaging his arm, she demanded he turned around so she could finally clean his back. He knew there was no arguing with her now. Besideds it was probably better to preoccupy her mind with anything that didn't involve evil priests, prophecies and demons wanting to take over the world.
Neither of them said a thing while she delicately massaged his back with the wet piece of fabric. Beast Boy was probably fighting the pain, but Raven couldn’t shake one more question that was nagging in the back of her mind. When she couldn’t stand the uncertainty anymore, she finally spoke.

“Beast Boy?”

“Yea?” He turned his head so he could see her from the corner of his eye. She was biting on her lower lip, like she always did when she felt insecure. She deepened her breathing to calm herself and focused more on being delicate with cleaning his wound. She tried to sound as casual as possible.

“Why did you call me a she-wolf?”
