I know this was made more than 10 years ago, but I just wanted to say that this story made me smile! :)

Cute. Good job at capturing the characters accurately. The writing is pretty clean too.

Very cute story. I love your stories! Make sure you keep writing them!

How the television's images were reflecting on Cyborg was symbolic for how BB saw himself in Raven and at the end. Also, when it was off, it was to signify that their confusion over each other is ove and now both have an understanding of each other's predicaments and are gonna face it together. This was a pleasant read although it had a couple sentence errors but it did not waver the quality of the fic.

You're right; the TV does seem a bit odd without understanding it as a metaphor. On with no sound, on with soft sounds, no light... on the surface, it sounds like it's time for Cy to do some tinkering. I'm not entirely certain I got what you were trying for with it, though. Is the TV displaying what supposedly "should" be happening in an ideal world? There's sound when there should be conversation, light when there's something important to see and ponder, then nothing when everything's at peace.
Your interactions are wonderful, the dialogue spot-on. There are some tense issues and typos to be found, but they don't interfere with comprehension. All in all, this is a great story, and I'm looking forward to reading more from you as time permits.

Well, that was a really good read. I didn't get the TV thing, I have to say, but then I'm not a frequent reader.
I really don't have anything bad to say since the characters worked and it felt pretty much on the money, but here's something: if you feel you have the censor the word 'God', why not choose an alternative?
Great job with this.

That was pretty good. Not sure I got the silent TV with static, but it must have something to do with the other 3 being asleep, unaware that BB and Raven are having a moment. It's almost like they're in a pocket in time, trapped between two ticks on the clock.

This story is hilarious, interesting, original, touching, and unique.

That was very touching. You have quite a deft hand with SHOWING emotion rather than just TALKING about it.
The TV is important, huh? Symbolic, then. It's on, but just ... standing by. Not actually doing anything. Dark, showing nothing, even though it is running.
Okay, maybe I get it. I can be a little slow some days.
So this is your "early work"? It's over seven years since you posted it here. Comparing it with "Forecasted Thunderstorms", I can see improvement here and there. You had a few typos in this one, but I didn't catch a single mistake in the later story.
I think I'll tackle your novella now. I'm something of a Terra fan myself (never have quite understood all the haters here ... what's their problem?) so I'm looking forward to it.
This goes in Favorites.

An incredibly well-written story. It took me a few reads before I was able to put my finger on exactly what the symbolism meant (it was obvious what it was, but not exactly what it stood for). Very cute fic.
