this story was so fucking good bruh
Dixxy chapter 4 . 11/3/2017
A very intense, powerful chappy here. As always wz ya, dear Laura.

You caught me off guard with the Malchior part. I wasn't expecting that dark a part, with one of the worst scenes one can find in stories, and in life in general. It is the first time, as far as i can recall, that you write about that horror, and i know didn't go without saying for ya. My God, was that part so damn trying, so damn demanding, making one want to barf, scream, kill...

And what about the second, extremely emotional part, in the child room, wz BB clutching to that rattle, and them talking about that tragedy of theirs ? It was extremely moving, and i loved every single line of it. It was my fav' part of this really harrowing chapter, which made the sensitive strings of my heart vibrate a lot. I didn't actually feel like crying, but i was definitely moved by the two of them spending time in that room, so sad about their lost child.

Oh, and regarding the beginning... i found it quite peculiar to read about Rae punching that bag ! It was amusing to see that mention (punch, punch) every two sentence in the text. That was unexpected... and kinda funny !

Last, i really liked the very conclusion of this chappy, with rae rising her head ans smiling. Both sweet and touching, ending on a positive note after all the negative. That was a welcome bright final note, vibrating with good vibes... implying a new, future hope... the promise of a new life, and the happiness it brings helping to relieving the grief related to the first (lost) life. Oh, and i personally deem a supplementary chapter unnecessary : the conclusion of this one is perfect, so please keep it at that, don't add anything ! :D

Thank you for this chapter, for this story, which was quite good, even if it naturally cannot top your masterpiece AHWCF, which is one of the best sTTories i read on here.

Have a nice day, a nice life and perhaps read ya again one day, who knows...

Take care !

This was rather bittersweet to some degree.

Hey Laura !

Always happy to see an update of yours... :)

This chapter is pretty intense, emotion-wise. Even impressive, psychologically-speaking.

It reminded me of some parts of AHWCF :

- the part where BB insists for Raven to remember was somehow remiscent of the sessions the two were having for Rae to remember about those nightmares including Trigon (when he made her look into her eyes)

- the elliptic episode of Rage taking control made me recall about her several overpowering-Raven moments in AHWCF, and how bad it ended each time

- the last bit, with the empath to "take a leave" from the team, reminded me of the girl being forced out of the Titans while pregnant, with all her teammates voting so (even BB !)

- and the destruction in Raven's room while she recalled about Malchior naturally made me think of the stormy moments during the couple's intimate moments of AHWCF

I felt extremely sorry for Rae in this chapter. She was so vulnerable, because of her nightmarish visions and because she was treated somewhat like an outcast. But
perhaps Robin isn't that wrong about her : that she must learn to better control her
emotions and "muzzle" Rage... which naturally doesn't go wzout saying !

You still make Robin appear as a bit of a dictator, as in AHWCF. You really must hold a strong grudge against him, for making him so little sympathetic, eh...? I'm not so approving of this, because although he is authoritarian, he isn't that much of a bad person. And probably not as inflexible, stubborn and uptight as you are making him be. But i'll let it pass : we all have different perspectives, haven't we... ? ;)

All in all, a very intense and emotionally/psychologically dense chapter, where this time sex is completely absent, and even love is as well. Which is for the best, i think, coz while i do like your sexual depictions, i still prefer finely-woven emotions and feelings in a stiffling atmosphere, where tension is almost palpable...

Thank you very much for your hard AND qualitative work, very rewarding to read.
Looking forward to your next installment. :D

Kudos !

U know, i really enjoy chapters where one is experiencing several different emotions. (i do grant emotions a great space in my own stories...)

And in this chapter, i experienced worry, sadness and empathy/sympathy, joy, excitement and amusement, dread and (again) sadness. Not bad for a single chappy, right ?

And because i was able to feel that much in just one story part, i ended up appreciating said part very much.

And therefore, be most grateful to ya, dear Laura, for crafting such a rich and complex chapter, emotion-wise. Excellent job, in my humble opinion.

And if you wonder what's amusement for, it's when the log is gradually disintegrating above them as they make love, with tiny bark parts raining down on them.

And so, i'm looking more than forward to your next installment.

And btw, don't cha think there are a tad too many 'and' at the beginning of my paragraphs, in this review ? XD

And so, with one last 'and', it's time to...END ;) this critical comment !

Thanxxxx again, keep up the good work... emotions and lemons mixed perfectly !

Beast Boy is trying which is a good thing, I'm certain that his patience will be rewarded courtesy off Raven.

And you're back !

After finishing your wonderful "magnum opus" and gathering no less than over 300 reviews, there you are again ! Good to see of you, dear L. ! ;)

So we're in for another RaeXBB, uh ? Hum, i'll do with it... just 4 U, eh eh !

Interesting first chapter... with another lemon scene of yours ! I won't complain though, since i like lemons (just wished there was a bit of oral sex in it though... think ya can put a bit of it in yr next sex/love scene, mmmh ?) I see that now, you're using more descriptive words (cock, pussy, vagina), which is new for ya. But eh, you're maturing and aging, uh, so all the more logical.

I understand that Raven has visions of Malchior. Will this be a recurring topic in the story ? Will Malchior - or at least its appearances - play a key role in this one ? Will Raven get really emotionally unstable about it ? That could actually be very interesting...

The final dialog between Cyborg & BB was also interesting, with the morpheme getting angrier, coz of Raven's fragility, and her meanwhile clutching to his hand and squeezing it for moral support. Very touching, really.

Also funny was Raven "using" Beast Boy's book "against" him. That WAS unexpected ! But isn't our favorite empath really that much clever and subtle, mmmh ?

Ah, and naturally also pretty important was Raven's reaction at the mention of "having children". Probably a major "psychological/emotional" hint for later, and her evolution throughout the story.

Anyway, keep up the good work, i'll be following... and reviewing ! :D

Oh, and... guess what ? I'm re-reading AHWCF ! It's really such a deep and intelligent story... i just HAD to read it a 2nd time ! Thanxxxx 4 that too !

Cheers 4 now... and kudos ! 8)

Beast Boy will need to try harder, Raven has too much trauma to reveal anything too quickly.
