I stumbled upon this wonderful story almost a week ago and I have to say it's one of the best things that's happened to me since I recently joined the Teen Titans fandom. I don't think you know just how long I've searched trying to look for good Beast Boy/Raven fics and this was truly a joy to read from beginning to end. So I guess it's only fair for me to give a detailed review of what I think about this story.
You've probably heard it before, but you do a spot on job with staying true to the characters especially Beast Boy and Raven. I love how you captured their voices perfectly that I just know who's speaking which line in the dialogues. Even the other Titans were enjoyable to read (especially Cyborg!)
I love the overall pace of the story. Every detail fits. They weren't just thrown in randomly and I appreciate that. You obviously put a lot of thought in writing the plot. My favorite chapters were when Beast Boy and Raven got stuck in Rae's meditation mirror. It's amusing to read BB interact with Raven's emoticlones without anyone else in the mirror with him. But I especially loved your version of Raven's "passion" emoticlone as most people refer to it (I don't know if you do. Let's just refer to her as Purple Raven). I love how you didn't make her kiss Beast Boy or do flirty things with him. You portrayed her as innocent and pure and I think it perfectly reflects the love she embodies for him (though the real Raven might not be aware of it just yet).
Your comedic timing is also very well done. I find myself laughing out loud so many times while reading this story. Your descriptions are also very precise. It's as if I'm still watching episodes of the show. The climax was...let's just say you showed us how it's done.
The ending of course is just very much heartwarming. You didn't go overboard with the romance, and that's good because their friendship has just started developing more deeply. I'm really excited to learn more about the progress of their relationship. Thank you so much for writing this. And I hope you never stop.
On to the sequel! :)

What can I say really that probably hasn't already been said?
Someone shared this story on Tumblr last week, and since then I haven't been able to put it down (my phone, that is). I can honest to goodness tell you that I have never been so hooked on any fan fiction that has had me reading past 2 or 3 chapters, but I barged my way through all 17 of yours, consistently hooked.
You have a marvellous grasp of language and story-telling, a vast imagination, and the ability to keep characters that are not your own seem genuine and in-character at all times. You did not bog down the story with tedious eyelash-batting and soppy moments, which have so often put me off other stories of this nature. It feels like a genuine novel, not to be tarnished with the assumptions that 'fan fiction' so often sadly receive.
I haven't loved or been hooked on a story in such a long time, and that's including published work by known authors. That you have such a talent makes me wonder perhaps if you'll someday publish some of your own work outside the realm of the internet.
So I guess my final words are, thank you. Thank you for bringing this story into my life when I needed it most. I am going straight onward onto the sequel xXx

I know this was written a long time ago, and I don't even know if You'll ever see this, but I'm 20yrs old and just recently fell in love w/ teen titans, and started reading bbrae fanfiction. I've read this one twice now, and my fanfic reading has turned into just trying to find one that could compare w/ this. No luck so far... Which kind of stinks. The way your story feels like watching the show is fantastic. It's almost sorta close to the season 6 we've never had... Maybe... *sigh!* :(

*Sheds single tear* This was good... this was very good... Thank you for making this. It was a great experience to read this. Keep making good story bro!
| Guest chapter 17 . 10/4/2014
All I can say is THANK YOU. It filled the whole in my heart called season six. I actually looked forward to whenever I had time to read what beast boy and raven were up to. And Thank you for staying true to the characters. Are you sure you didn't write for the original teen titans? Cause this is hella good. It was a pleasant surprise to find a skilled writer write about one of my all time favorite tv show/comic and keep the "heart" that makes teen titans so great. And I could never predict what was going to happen next! Loved it.

I see, Beast boy is acting like Raven and Raven is acting like Beast Boy. Interesting

So I just finished Quality Time and have just gotten started on Broken Spirit. I have to say, I am quite thoroughly impressed with your writing style, especially with your expertly done breaking for the fourth wall and the characterization of both Raven and Beastboy. Considering I didn't see almost any flaws (other than in this, I am just going to list the pros of the story.
Characterization - You expertly characterize Raven and Beastboy's relationship, not only making it seem plausible in the sense that these two people that obviously hate each other slowly (but surely) fall in love, but also keep it within the context of the two characters personalities as depicted in the cartoon. Well done, 5/5 on this.
Humor - Humor was spot on, and I really appreciated the frequent use of innuendo, especially considering that you did so without ever explicitly stating it . The fact that you avoided cursing alone, keeping it in line with the language used in the show, was very refreshing from what I see most of the time in TT fanfiction (not that I would have minded if you had, I have the mouth of a sailor on crack).
Fourth Wall - Not much needs to be said here, only that you have done what very few people can do: broke the fourth wall in a way that still kept in line with your story and didn't take away at all from the setting.

"That's it?" Cyborg said, relieved. "Okay, fine. You go for one month in Raven's company, and I'll clean your room," he accepted, cracking open door and having a look inside. "Though, personally, I think you'd be better off calling in an air strike, and starting over," he said.
Best line ever.

This is still my number one favorite Fanfiction. I loved every bit of it from beginning to end. You're the first author I've seen that wrote the pairing from a REALISTIC perspective, showing their gradual relationship over time. Everyone was kept in character, along with maintaining the original "Teen Titans" feel throughout. You are an amazing writer and I thank you for a beautiful story that I hope to enjoy for many years.
