Prince of Serendipity
“Do you think the universe fights for souls to be together?
Some things are too strange and strong to be coincidences.”
― Emery Allen
Prince of Serendipity
I. They spend a good deal of the afternoon trudging through the dingiest parts of Gotham, beating down the lowliest of the low and the most flea-ridden of the rats with all the intent and purpose of muckrakers.
By the time the sun has given up on diminishing the shadows of the mess (of a city), clouds have appeared in the sky like grumbling gray splotches splitting the consistency of a blue canvas. With sunlight scarce and an increasingly fierce amount of twelve o' clock rain, the pair tramp back towards a familiar rooftop, covered in mud, scrapes, and blood that isn't theirs.
II. She looks oddly in place with the unflattering shades of Gotham behind her, violet hair be damned. So of course, he kisses her. It's only logical.
His arms wrap around her shoulders and the incli
The Dog Days Are Over
(This is for a competition, and the theme was ‘Summer Vacation’. So, this is just a oneshot on the beach, filled with words, and a lot of emotional constipation. Song by Florence + the Machine. )
In which Robin needs a break – from crime fighting, from the shadows of Slade still with them, and the chaos of the team. Being the rich, broken boy he is, he drags his right-hand empath along with him. On a remote vacation island that only a true Wayne ward could’ve afforded, they spend the final day of their vacation on a beach, overlooking an endless chipped ocean.
In which Raven knows her worth, really, but she still worries.

In My Dreams
She had that elusive, magical touch that could heal his injuries and wounds.
She had that mysterious, dark aura about her that gave her a dangerous edge when battling villains in Jump City.
And though he was a little afraid to admit it, he liked her.
Since his amicable breakup with Starfire, Robin was...falling in love with Raven. The other practical, mature member of the team, the two had been very close friends ever since the formation of the Teen Titans. But in the weeks that followed the breakup, he noticed, they seemed to be getting closer than they had ever been before. They talked to each other more, they spent more time with each other...
...and slowly, ever so slowly, he began to love her as more than a friend.
Though Star had told Robin shortly after their breakup that she would be happy for him if he found someone else he could love and be happy with, still...he was reluctant to admit it to himself. Starfire had been an easy girlfriend to please. Raven...well, it was kind of
Selfish or Selfless
Selfishness was a sin, and Raven knew that.
It was sometimes called greed. But this very selfishness - this selfishness that let her love and feel feelings freely - cost her her powers.
She knew that there was no choice. She wanted Robin, wanted to be with him, but she wanted more to be a hero.
And she knew that he, had he been under the same circumstances as she was, would have done the same for the world.
Yes, she was a pretty good fighter in hand-to-hand combat, whenever it was necessary. But the dark, mystic power that glowed from her hands as she chanted her mantra was her real strength. It was her main asset; it was what made her so powerful.
And she knew that without it, she was nearly useless to the team. She wasn't as good as Robin was in hand-to-hand combat and villains were sure to exploit this very weakness in her.
Yes, he could teach her everything in the world, but nothing could beat her dark magic and her empathic powers.
Though her heart was aching and crying inside, be
Teen Titans - Moon Gazing Part 1
It was past midnight and the night was cold. Not from the wind, for there was barely a breeze, but from the darkness that wrapped around everything it came across. Though the night was cold and uncaring, the dark, frigid sky seemed to grow warmer as it touched the moon's illumination. Watching this, intently, was a caped figure on the top of a giant "T".
She was sitting on the edge wrapped in her cape. As to why she was still there was beyond her knowledge. For some reason, it just felt right. So here she was, with her head lifted high to watch the giant light giver in the sky.
She did not know why, but she always became entranced when she came up here. It was if nothing else mattered besides the serene light that whatever it gently wrapped its grasping fingers around became peaceful. How she wanted to become peaceful. But she was too far away from the light to be touched. Chaos ruled her mind, though she might not show it.
She felt herself come out of her entra
TT - Troubled Hearts NINE
It had been a few days since the excitement. The real Starfire was finally back! She had awakened like Raven had only three days prior. However, she was different when she had awoken; much like Raven was. The joint dream she had been in had altered her feelings. While Starfire did not particularly wish to go back to that strange dream world, she also hadn’t wanted to leave it. It was hard accepting that everything she had been through, everything she had felt, was fictional.
No, she knew what she had felt was real.
Roy Harper. He was a man unlike any other she had known. He was kind and gentle and sweet. She could tell he genuinely cared about her and her friends. She had completely fallen for him. And, because of him, she realized another truth.
Starfire didn’t love Robin.
While Robin and she had been slowly drifting apart, Starfire
Teen Titans - The Ultimate Disney Experience
—The Ultimate Disney Experience—
It had certainly been a fight to get Raven here. I mean really, who doesn’t want to go on a Disney vacation? Not to mention, in France. Hello? Doesn’t she know this is the country home to the City of Love? This was supposed to be a charming, not to mention romantic, getaway.
I took the time to find the perfect spot. As mentioned, we are in France. At an exact replica of the Beast’s (or if you want to be technical, Prince Adam’s) enchanted castle. I thought, hey, Raven and Belle have a lot in common. They are both beautiful (yes, I made sure to mention that), adventurous, book-loving girls who wanted more in life than was offered.
So, yeah. This vacation was supposed to be a compliment to show her how much I care and admire her. Heck, I love Raven. Shouldn’t she be grateful?
However, now prob

“Well, my news doesn’t even compare with what is happening in my living room, so I might as well spill.” Rachel shrugged and took a shaky breath in and out. This caused both men in the room to look away from the unconscious girl on the couch over to Rachel. Roy had always known Rachel to be calm and composed. Now, she was anything but. “I know I should be excited, but with all this commotion going on. . . I don’t quite know how to take the news.”
“Rach, tell us,” Roy told her, “What has been going on? You aren’t yourself. Please, talk to us. We’ll understand. I promise.”
“Can you really promise that? I hardly know what to think myself.”
“It’s not bad news, is it?” Roy asked, but Rachel just walked into the kitchen and gestured for the two men to follow her to the table.
TT - Vacation Troubles EIGHT
—Trouble with the Confession—
In Richard’s room, Rachel kept trailing her fingertips over her lips. She seemed preoccupied and Richard had no clue why. Of course, being the detective he was, he wanted to solve the puzzle in front of him. “So, mind telling me why you keep massaging your lips? Is there someone I don’t know about?” He asked with a devious smirk.
Rachel didn’t respond to that quip. Instead, she stood there for a moment in a daze before replying, “I can’t believe my— my first kiss was from a. . . a dolphin.” Richard raised an eyebrow almost mirroring how Rachel always would. “A female dolphin.” She emphasized.
“You knew it was a girl?”
“Make that a pregnant female dolphin.”
Richard looked at her. Her eyes were downcast and she was rubbing her arms up and down with her hands. She looked tr

“Like I said, I don’t have all the answers you are seeking,” Terra paused. “But I can tell you this.” Terra looked between Cyborg and Raven and back again in unsteady silence. Then another unbearably silent moment. What exactly is she about to reveal? Raven wondered. “I’m not the only one who has dreams,” she said.
Raven was about to ask who else could possibly be dreaming, but then all Hell broke out.
Their whole surroundings seemed to explode after her confession. It was almost as if it was done deliberately to conceal whatever truth or even half-truth Terra was about to unveil. The infirmary was a mess. It was strange, Raven had not sensed an unfamiliar aura and none of Cyborg’s tech had indicated an intruder. Nevertheless, the doors had been blasted down and many of the machines had been scathed if not altogether destroyed f

Read “Troubled Mind” chapter six before reading this one.
“So,” Kori said as she sat next to Dick on the couch, “how are things going between you and Rachel?” Dick thought there might be some hidden meaning behind her question at first. However, once he looked into her innocent green eyes, he realized there was no secret agenda in her inquiry. Why then did she ask? Was she still in love with him? He could not seem to wrap his mind around the idea that she was sincerely concerned or even wishing them well.
“I’m sorry, Star,” he told her as he rubbed the back of his neck with his right hand. “I—I just don’t know right now. Things are complicated and I don’t think it is wise to get close to these people. They aren’t real.” He was about to say more, but Kori’s eyes watered and he saw her
TT - Vacation Troubles SIX
Trouble at the Green Sand Beach
After returning to the resort damp and more than a little cranky, they parted to their separate rooms. However, not before Richard told Rachel: “Just wait and see what I have planned for tomorrow,” with that cheeky, annoying, frustrating, enchanting smirk that she loved and hated at the same time.
After his flirtatious wink and her dramatic roll of the eyes, Rachel walked into her room and leaned against her closed door. “What in the world have I gotten myself into?” She looked down at her floor as she thought of the day she had shared with her vacation companion.
And then she smiled.
There was a knock on the door. Then followed by a few more successive knocks. Irritated by being woken up, Rachel dragged herself out of her very comfortable king-sized bed and walked to her door. After looking through the peephole (because it could’ve been a guy with ill intentions, or worse, the Goth boy), she opened the door.

Raven wasn't big on vacations, no less ones that involved hot weather or swimsuits. She did not own any kind of swimwear for such an occasion, and she'll be damned if she ever did. She wasn't the kind of girl who flashed their skin in dangerously low amounts of clothing and paraded around swinging her hips while the contents of her chest practically bulged out. No. Not her.
She slid open her closet and examined the wardrobe. Nothing but her usual cloak and leotard. She gathered them all into her arms and piled them into the open suitcase on the bed. "Done," she told herself. She then exited her room and entered the bathroom to get her toothbrush. On her way out, she bumped into Robin.
"Watch it," she grunted.
"Nice to see you too, Rae," he chuckled. "How's the packing going?"
Robin looked at her funny. "Already? You started like two minutes ago!"
Raven simply shrugged and walked back into her room. Robin follow
Teen Titans - Hello
Playground school bell rings again
He heard the sound of bells ringing somewhere in the distance. It was a melancholy sound, yet partially calming to his frazzled nerves. Ever since she was put in the Intensive Care Unit a few days ago, he had barely eaten, slept, or even moved. He was just there in his bed or occasionally walking the grounds as he was now. He was existing, but serving no purpose. He didn't have a reason to go on if she wasn't there beside him and he knew it.
Rain clouds come to play, again
He looked up at the sky when he felt a few drops of rain on him. The sky seemed unforgiving with massive gray clouds covering it and refusing to let a single beam of light through. He thought it was just like the people around him. Full of sadness and without any hope. She would get better! She had to.
Has no one told you she's not breathing?
Secrets in the Dark - Robin/Rae
The day was indeed hectic-gizmo had decided to stir up some fun in the town again by highjacking some petty jet, and Jinx was terrorizing the mall(s) people by denouncing couples and destroying any store that didn't sell the most sickening pink outfits ever. See-More was looking under the clothes of females who went past the bus stop, and Mammoth was crushing cars on his way - his jogging way - to the donut shop. Al throughout, it was just one scene after another that ran the Teen Titans rapid through the streets in hopes it wouldn't continue. And afterwards they enjoyed with a nice adult horror flick to boot - courtesy of the one and only Beast Boy.
It was one-o'clock in the morning when Robin's head hit the pillow. He had forgotten how nice the softness felt against his body after being near those unpleasant situations for so long. And the couch wasn't as comfortable as it was a few years back.
Forget about it, this was his time and only time to sleep. He was sure that it wasn't goin

My Kind of Store
Robin looked at Raven, unable to believe that she had just uttered those words. “Really?” He asked in disbelief. Raven nodded in response, but she was a little bit taken aback. Why was he looking at her like she was the monster from “Wicked Scary” come to haunt him? What she said wasn’t that unusual. Was it?
“Is the world ending again?” He reflexively grabbed his bo staff from his utility belt. You know, just in case.
Did he really just ask that? Raven sighed. “No,” she said firmly, “that is, unless there is something you have yet to tell me.” She tried to end this unnerving interrogation with a little bit of humor. Well, as much humor as Raven could do.
“But seriously?” Robin asked, refusing to let it go. “Harajuku?”
Silently Raven nodded her head.
TT - Troubled Hearts FIVE
Dreams. . . Why do I have such dreams? I’m so different in these dreams that it’s like I am seeing another me. Why do they feel so abstract? It’s as if I am seeing something from a different angle, but still, I know it’s my eyes.
These dreams are so bittersweet. I am there. Left all alone. Waiting for someone to rescue me from this world. But what world is it? I can barely see any of the people or scenery around me, nonetheless comprehend what is going on. It is so confusing. . .
They have been so sporadic that I can’t put together any thoughts or words that go on around me. It’s like I am reading a book that has no middle. And, no matter how much I wish it, no end. But, last night, I had another one.
It was a silhouette of a man and a woman. They were speaking softly to each other. Even though I couldn’t hear what t

It had been two weeks since the debut of the three villainesses. After that, they hadn’t shown their hooded faces again. The Titans just figured they were some newbies they scared off. So it was back to lounging around the tower being lazy. Beast Boy and Cyborg were at it again with their beloved gamestation (and fighting over whether or not Cyborg cheated), Starfire was chatting with Robin on the couch, Robin was listening halfheartedly, and Raven was most likely secluded in her room. Nothing out of the norm here. Beast Boy gave an aggravated sigh and tossed his controller onto the coffee table, which slid over to the other side and fell.
“There is no way Ganondorf could possibly defeat Sonic! He’s slower than my grandmamma!” Beast Boy hollered at the smirking half-human. Cyborg chuckled maniacally and selected a different character.
“Face it. You just suck at this game!” he bellowed happily.

Part 1: Raven as depicted by Richard Grayson.
It's... Purple? Maybe amethyst? It's got a nice sheen to it, too. And it's short. I like how the back is shorter than the front.
... Wuzzat? Do I wanna run my fingers through it? -coughs- I, uh... Wouldn't wanna mess it up...
They're purple too. Sorta darker than her hair. They're also a tad sparkly. And kinda big.
... And kinda pretty...
... HOLY FRIJOLES!
They're eyebrows. What's to say? That they're also purple? (Why is there so much purple on this girl?) And I guess maybe somewhat on the thick-ish side...? Anyways she always has them in a look that says "Touch me and you're dead", but then again maybe it's
