Okay, I'm not yet finished with the story, but I just HAD to pause and congratulate you for that LOVELY image of the light in BB's eyes that you described after Cy suggested a cactus. That was a laugh-out-loud moment if ever there was one! Truly, this cannot end well.
Ahhhh! A beautiful description of emotion, that, when Raven dropped her shield. So good it shivers.
I didn't catch any canon-screwing there. A fine job, I say!
Raven's explanation (the musical instrument analogy) was perfect. She had been in love with him, but had no frame of reference to identify that fact.
Superb work! And your meticulous attention to detail where grammar is concerned was a sheer delight. This goes DIRECTLY to Favorites!
(By the way, I found you because you left a thoughtful and helpful review for TitansGirl1234 in her story "Payphone". And very glad I am that you did!)

I really liked this! I very much liked your characterization of Beast Boy- you've created a really nice balance between his more mature and more childish sides. Many authors seem to go to either extreme, but you've written a thoughful Beast Boy that's still true to his impulsive self, very nice. Love the inclusion of Cyborg and what I really loved was Beast Boy's thoughts on romance. Much of his and Raven's development in the show was them learning to accept certain aspects of one another to get along, so his views on how one should accept a rose even with it's thorns is very fitting.
Beast Boy and Raven's interactions were very sweet and well done, though personally I don't think Raven would openly say she loved Beast Boy that quickly. I love the inclusion of her empathy- very well described. The bit with Beast Boy forgetting that humans can't digest cactus needles was cute and funny and goofy and very much Beast Boy, as well as the idea of him giving her a cactus in the first place (and it being a Batman cactus of course!). I like how you characterized Raven as well, reserved, cautious, and sarcastic but not entirely unkind.
Overall, this is very well done, especially for your first time writing a bb/rae fic. You've got a good grasp on the characters and a good sense of humor, so I hope that you'll consider making another!

For a setting that exceeds Evolution's willingness to defy, ignore and just blatently ignore 40 years of canon, you did very, very good.
The only thing I'll say is that you made BB a little more mature than normal, but you also didn't say how long after the end of the series you are setting it.

That's so sweet! BB put so much thought into that gift for Raven! I loved the way you wrote their relationship and the descriptions in this were really good. I think you really nailed the Beast Boy Raven dynamic, great work!
