Not bad. Some typos, and misspellings, but not bad. I would like to note that Raven is not a paganist. Raven believes in the teachings of Azar.

Easily one of the best titans fics I have ever read and I thank you for writing it.

So, when I very first saw this story I was like 'Ugh no, they are NOT allowed to be sisters, I'm not going to read this.' Now that I actually decided to read it I'm glad I did. I don't like the Raven/Speedy ship but it was okay because the story was good anyways. I also have to ask, which sequel is the one I should read, there's like two and it's confusing me...

AHHHH! How did I not see this?! HOW!?
| Zarohk Korobase chapter 12 . 10/8/2012
"Jenny convinced me to keep it," Hanna says. What the fuck?! Jinx's story is exactly why Hanna should NOT keep the child and should have an abortion.
Hanna: "I never wanted to be the girl that this kind of shit happens to! This child is nothing but a curse to me!"
Jinx: "Those exact words that my mother said to me just before she stabbed a fucking dagger into my chest!"
And Jinx's story is that her mother had her, but resented her for her whole life, and was not only was a bad mother, but also a battered woman because she kept the child (Jinx). Yes, if her mother had aborted Jinx, Jinx would not be here, but for Jinx's mother, keeping the rapist's child was bad for everyone involved. You're getting it exactly backwards. Jinx's story was pretty scary, and Hanna shouldn't want a child who she will resent to the point of trying to MURDER that child. Actually, according to Jinx's story, Hanna not aborting the child, even though she doesn't want a child and isn't ready for it would be horrible for both her and the child. Does Jinx want Hanna to hate or try and kill her child? Since that seems to be the only reason why Jinx would want Hanna to keep it.

Why won't the Titans let Hanna have an abortion if she chooses to?
"Hanna will never want an abortion, Doctor." Raven says, but it seems to be more Raven's view than Hanna's, and from what she almost does later, it's clear that she does want an abortion. While Jinx unloads her own traumas in response, Jinx's story actually seems to give a reason why Hanna should have an abortion, rather that give birth to a child who will be a constant reminder of her rape, and who could only have an abusive father.

Great story, I'm glad I found it now rather than missing it forever and that your still writing. I'll definitely have to check out your others. This was I admit a longshot given the review. I just wasn't sure that I wanted to commit to it given the danger of self insertion. But you wrote what I think is a very interesting and compelling story. I do have a few minor qualms about it in how genre appropriate the deaths were, and a bit how you handled the no abortion, then overly violent abortion issues. I think the first came through without quite enough preparation given the original source, and the latter was not given nearly enough attention. I do however highly approve of some of the psycological effects you've had going through it.

I love this story
| Deadpool chapter 17 . 3/8/2011
though it looks like you've left FFN by this point, I wanted to let you know that this story has some of the best OC insertion I've ever seen in a fic. They all had well fleshed out personalities that added a lot of depth to your story that many fics lack.

Dear lord, this was one gigantic fanfic.
I only have, what, 130 thousand words to review. You, sire, have a gift with the words. Although the grammar could use a bit working, the marvelous way you wrote the story, I really could see it in my mind, a movie playing gently ( most of the time, I did become distracted by the earlier mentioned mistakes ), not one of those hollywood shit movies we watch, no. It was a friggin' marathon of goodness and awesomeness.
Must I say, I don't even like most of the pairings you wrote, but I liked them. It felt rushed, unnatural in the beginning, but you worked on them, something few actually do. You gave solid reasons for me to believe, you gave life to your characters and their emotions, their needs. Their love. Well, being a huge fan of "Yuri" myself, I could see that JanicexAmi thing miles away, but writers often like to be the sadistic guy who crushes their reader's dreams and all of that, so one can never be to apprehensive, yes?
Now, the battle scenes, that was the cherry on top of a huge friggin' wondercake. Yes, a wondercake. Don't ask me what a wondercake is, it felt suitable at the moment. Might be yummy, too.
Everything was so fluid, and described so well, that my mouth was really left hanging from time to time. Also, good work on the huge use of characters, even with the sheer amount of different personalities to work on, you managed to get them quite good. Although, I must admit. I had to do research in order to understand some of the stuff going on here. Never been able to buy the comics and that, deprived only to the Teen Titans cartoon, and could barely watch a dozen episodes, to say the least. But I was overjoyed I could understand most of it, and the research has been most fruitful.
Now, I won't lie. I first wanted to read this because I thought it was a RavenxJinx fanfic. Not that this isn't an awesome story, but I will forever think that it could have been slightly better that way. But I like them, so sue me.
Really, don't do that.
Anyways, I don't know if I will have the heart to read your sequel. * Looks over the dozens of other fanfics to be read * anytime soon. It pains me to know that it will not be in the way I expected things to be. It also overjoys me in the same way, expect the unexpected and everything. Just that the writers tend to spoil you with obvious stories. Yours surely wasn't one of them.
You should become a writer one of those days, you'd do very good at it. With some better grammar, of course!
Keep on writing, PLEASE!
PS: This is one damn long review. Feels like I wrote an one-shot just talking about your writing. o_o

Sir, I must ask: What the hell did Hanna do to you to make you HATE her so much? And don't tell me you don't hate her, you clearly do!

Adding you to Favorite Authors. Meant to do that before but it slipped what laughingly passes for my mind. I was recommending this story to someone and it just hit me.

Mr. McDonald -
I am in awe. A stunning, gut-blasting conclusion, and a memorable, yea verily, a perfect denoument.
I have been a die-hard, inveterate reader since the age of four, so for nearly five decades now. There are many fine authors out there of one stripe or another, and I have my list of favorites: Sherry S. Tepper, Alan Dean Foster, Louis Sachar, Terry Goodkind, Arthur Conan Doyle, E. E. Smith, Roger Zelazny, Theodore Sturgeon, Robert Jordan ... you see a pattern here?
I can now add Jacob McDonald to the list.
Do you have any published works? Never mind, I'll google you. Hopefully (HOPEFULLY!) you are busy working on another fantastic tale.
I love your characters. You make them so real. They are more real than some HUMANS I know. (More than a LOT of humans I know ... what does that say about my circle of acquaintances?)
Kudoes. Cheers. Raves. Thank you. Thank you so VERY much.
