|Reviews for Seven Years' Bad Luck in One Day|

This was quite a story! Like Concolor mentioned, I was consistently grateful that you had finished the story before I started reading. There were so many times when I was hooked, and saw from your author notes that there had apparently been months between the chapters! I actually finished the story a while ago, but was reading on my phone and never got around to getting onto my computer to leave a review. But I was reminded when it came up in conversation and I was telling a friend all about your story.
Specifically, I was telling him about the ways you split Raven's emotions in order to analyze and flush out each one. It was especially cool to see her most intense emotions split into further divisions. Honestly, I've never been a fan of the whole Nevermore concept that the fanfic community seems to be running with. Regarding that particular episode, I consider those doppelgangers to be metaphors for her emotional compartmentalization. I don't think they're 'real' parts of her, any more than I think she actually has an asteroid field or a giant maze in her mind. But even so, I very much enjoyed seeing her emotions dissected so thoroughly.
My only criticism is that Beastboy was put on a pedestal. Without any real justification, he just 'became' the person that Raven's doppelgangers all gravitated to. And he seemed to just fall into that role, whereas I would have appreciated seeing him struggle to figure out exactly 'how' to be her knight in shining armor.
I loved how you handled the Trigon component of the story. And when you first started writing this, the fourth season hadn't even aired yet! How cool that must have been for you, to see the show address some of the same conflicts you'd explored in your work.

I liked Overload's Tried. Gone. reference. Great story idea so far.

Wow that was the best fanfic I've ever read, and I've just read ravenx(everybody) fanfics for a whole month. The writing was beautiful, detailed, not unrealistic but not cruelly glued to the Titan storyline. It had a plot that gripped and flowed and kept my interest while also being veried; Ive been looking for someone to successfully do the emotions to no avail until you. And the emotions... they were all comoletely true to themselves and yet at the same time wove perfectly with the plot from beginning to end. I gave up on Beastboy until this came along; it could actually happen and made me look at the couple in a completely new light. I'm blown away by how much care and time you put into this! Thank you so much for writing this to the end!

I don't know what else to say about this story other than I loved it. Right now I have that full yet empty feeling inside that I get whenever finishing a good book. I don't want it to be over, but it made me so happy at the same time. This was wonderfully done. The characters stayed in character the whole time, and it had just the right amount of romance in it so I wasn't overwhelmed like I feel I am sometimes in stories I read.
I was recommended to read this story by a Guest who reviewed on my story and I must say that I am glad I checked your story out, because I loved it. The strange thing is that I've actually started writing something similar to this story! If I ever decide to post it (though I don't know for sure if I will) I'd just like you to know that I'm not copying your idea.
Anyways, I was so very glad to have found Seven Years' Bad Luck in One Day (the title is very clever) and must say that you are a talented author!

Redneck to answer your question the story is set before birthmark I think, but if Im wrong though either way it's before the end (if that makes since?) Ps by the way Great Story

(Slow Dramatic Clapping) Well done.

Whew! What a ride! I'm sorry I didn't leave reviews on the last two chapters. I was just reading too darn fast, and was too impatient to stop that long.
This is definitely going into Favorites. How you managed to make a tussle with TRIGON a fluff-fest I haven't quite figured out yet. But you pulled it off. Kudos!

It is "definitely", not "definately". Just sayin'.
Uhhhhh ... boy. BB's getting in over his head here I'm afraid. STILL VERY GLAD you've already finished this. Don't think I'd do too well waiting on these chapters.

This story just keeps getting better and better! :-D
You have gotten REALLY adept at dealing with Raven's individual Emotions. I do believe this is the best such story I've ever read. It certainly trumps my entry into that genre (and it FEELS as if THIS story will have a happy ending, which also beats my effort).
Glad am I that this story is already finished!
Oh ... one little nitpick: when Raven corrected BB's grammar (in the previous chapter?), she used incorrect grammar. I don't know if you did that on purpose as a kind of Detached Irony thing, but she used nominative case when she should have used objective. On the whole, though, your treatment of the Mother Tongue is well above par, and THAT I do appreciate.

Those pesky demon-lords, always mucking about in other entities' minds!
I think a little bit more of the truth is slipping into Raven's conscious thoughts.
| Concolor44 chapter 3 . 7/20/2013
Intriguing concept: the further splitting of the Emotions into finer and finer niches. You're doing an impressive job with this. It will likely end up being Favorited.
| Concolor44 chapter 2 . 7/20/2013
Yeah, I was wondering about that. Just how long can Raven ... um ... "hold it together" when she isn't, technically, together?

Ummm ... oops?
