I really, really liked this. Just the perfect level of isolation for Raven without denigrating anyone else on the team. I find the whole course of events plausible. It's something very horrible and I can see her not sharing it. The way the masturbation is depicted it not erotic and does not have to be. The whole thing feels properly sad without being overwhelmingly so.
I liked it.

Well, that was lots of fun! I was a bit caught off guard mostly by the odd interplay of deeply disturbing imagery and amusing shenanigans in the earlier chapters, but I enjoyed the introspection in the later ones quite a bit! I especially was impressed by your imagining of Cyborg - too often his character is ignored as a fifth wheel next to the two couples (in all possible configurations), so it was nice to see him basically save the day, have an awesome villain version, and even conquer on purely philosophical grounds.
All things considered, a greatly enjoyable story. Great job with it! I'll be reading your other works as well, I think.

Good ending. It fit well. I like the starfish thing.

Holy hell that was freaky. and awesome. Hero's gone bad are scarier than anything else.

RUSSIAN DOLL FOR THE WIN!
Seriously, I can't stop laughing. That has to be one of the GREATEST villians ever made up.
"RAAAHHH!" the Russian Doll screeched, apparently driven into a frothy berserker rage at this point. "I AM FILLED WITH TINIER WOMEN!"
Tears are literally STREAMING DOWN MY FACE! Thank you SO MUCH!

I have a love-hate relationship with this fic. I mean, I really liked it but...it was just so batshit insane. The characters were both OC and completely natural. The tone would shift from heart-breakingly sad to annoyingly comedic. It's like this story is bipolar or something. I despised how Robin was put on such a freakin pedestal, having the ladies fawn over him. I doubt people like Raven and Starfire would appreciate someone toying with them like Robin did in this fic. The show pretty much over-hyped the shit out of Robin, which really irked me. This brings us to what I ADORE about your fic: The exposition you gave Beast Boy. You really showed this oft-derided character a lot of love and appreciation. For that, you have my warmest thanks. This fic really took a lot out of me. At times, it made me want to punch my computer screen (take that as a compliment. It means you're such a good writer, you have the ability to make people feel so strongly). It reminds me of the time I read "The things Raven sees" by P0ST, another fic I love-hated (I loved how it captured Raven PERFECTLY, but I LOATHED how the writer portrayed Beast Boy).
You know, you should continue writing works like this. It's such a fucking shame this work of grotesque art hasn't attracted more attention. You should write like this more often. Make an even crazier fanfic (if that's possible). It doesn't matter what the subject matter is (heck, write a fanfic for all I care. I'd still read that shit) Anyway, thanks so much for this great experience! Oh, and if anyone else is reading this, REVIEW THIS FANFIC! SERIOUSLY! IT DESERVES SO MUCH MORE REVIEWS!
ugh, I'm done now...

Dude, that was just awesome. Sorry I didn't review as I went along, but I just kinda read your story almost all at once. I gobbled it up man- well, except for the first chapter, but I'm glad that I went ahead with the following chapters. Cus the story as a whole, man... man.
Your writing skills are very, very good. And I really appreciate how you dabbled in each characters' POV. Characters like Starfire and Cyborg don't get enough attention, and are hard to write for. The length of everyone's time in the spotlight varied, but oh well. Most of the time seemed to be spent on Beast Boy, which I don't mind at all cus he's my favorite character.
The Russian Doll was great! I loved her, so sad to see her go. And I liked how you gave Fixit a part in the story.
Um... I did have some criticism, but I'm too satisfied with the story to remember those points. I guess part of it was Slade being out of character or something... oh well. It was just good overall, very good. I'm definitely reading the sequel!

I have indeed enjoyed the ride.

Poor Russian Doll...great fight scenes though that idea of the germ got overused a tad...and 3VIL Beast Boy being able to pull of a Trigon, even a realistic fake? Nah.
| IVIaedhros chapter 11 . 1/3/2008
I'm really lovin' the Russian Doll. Insanity pwns.
| IVIaedhros chapter 10 . 1/3/2008
It is ironic that these dark versions view themselves in some ways the same as the originals. Interesting that they miss the greatest part of who we are: our choices. They're like our DNA...raw, unshaped potential.

I feel you on the reviews/hit counts man. Sad to say, but you're several grade levels too high for 93.2% of this section's readers. Fun times this chapter.
| IVIaedhros chapter 6 . 1/3/2008
Haha, raw gods this is so messed up. I don't know what the Teen Titans ever did to warrant such a talented group of authors, but it's heart warming to see. Half this chapter is quotable.
| IVIaedhros chapter 5 . 1/3/2008
I'm surprised they bothered to give Slade such a nice send-off. Guess they had too since he showed his tender-feelly side.
| IVIaedhros chapter 3 . 1/3/2008
Dang...poor dude. He goes from being smashed in the crotch, to having to forcibly resist seduction to loosing his girlfriend who doesn't know he resisted said seduction.
Heh, good stuff, though I'd give a warning about advertising what couples you're going to hook up in the beginning. Kinda takes the suspense factor out, ya' know...unless, you decide NOT to follow your tendency...the plot thickens.
