Before I talk about the story I must say I am both impressed and overwhelmed by the sheer number of story ideas you have thought of and written on your profile page. I thought the author Coeur Al'Aran had a lot of future idea, but you trumped that number by a large number. Also, your other completed Teen Titan stories. Out of curiosity, are they also BBxRae pairing (regardless of whether it is the main focus or not), or different pairings?
This was a cute and interesting little one shot.
Garfield Mark Logan is a very complex character, who one the show we rarely got see behind the jokester mask. This was partially due to how dark most of his past is and how he was written as a comic relief character. Still the writers found ways to sneak little hints in the show. The line about Beast Boy referring to himself as an animal being one of them.
I am glad you wrote about this. We got to see a bit of Raven talking with her emotions, which I always love to see, and her reflection on how Beast Boy might see himself. Knowledge was so smug the entire conversation.
I enjoyed seeing write about some of Beast Boy's struggles and insecurities, getting glimpses of what lies within Beast Boy, hidden. You did a great job writing Beast Boy's struggle. It really captured the strain his powers put on him sometimes and the turmoil Beast Boy faces on a regular basis. It was also nice to see you make the distinction between instincts and emotions. It really fleshed out everything.
The ending was nice and sweet, with Raven wanting to spend more time with him and finding a activity that does that while potentially helping Beast Boy with his instincts.
Oh Starfire, of course your bet would revolve around Mustard. Should have asked Cyborg to get you mustard from all over the world.

Great story! Although, I have to argue that Raven and Gar's issues are more alike. While it is true that Raven's powers are controlled by her emotions, she is half-demon and with that said she has the instincts of a demon (which, in my humble opinion is much more terrible than an animal). Demons are chaotic. Their actions are compromised of meaningless violence, tyranny and disorder. On the other hand, most animals have 'rules' to follow and usually murdering another animal serves a purpose (not always, domesticated cats are the biggest culprit for killing solely for the thrill of the hunt). A pride of lions contain multiple males and females. There are rules about who is the head male and head female, which lions are allowed to eat first, which lions are allowed to mate the most, which female lions are designated to hunt and which lioness is in charge of watching the cubs and so on. And while lions are fierce animals, their instincts aren't necessarily a bad thing because they are needed for survival. Male lions are driven to protect their pride and territory, and the same can be said for a wolf with their pack, or a rooster with its flock. Humans are animals, and I'm sure my family would stick/fight together to protect our home from a burglary. With that said, I don't want to diminish Gar's very real and difficult problem of keeping his animal instincts in check. I just feel that Raven can empathize with him more than people think. I'm a huge fan of Beast Boy's and Raven's darker side/nature, so I absolutely loved this story. And the ending with Star was adorable. The only advice I can give you is to refrain from putting A/N within a story. I love Harry Potter, but the reference was unnecessary (for me) and A/N should be placed at the end of the story/chapter. They disrupt the stories flow, and if you are worried readers won't get something you can always use footnotes. Overall, a solid piece of writing!

Really good story. I had the same thought when I saw the beast within for the first time "didn't he get all angry and sels-deprecating before the chemicals got on him." I really liked how you did Rae's interactions with her emotions (specifically knowledge). And how you showed the diference between instincts and emotions, Perfect! All in all an awesome story.
