if this sounds like a flame then Im sorry. At the end when Robin thinks that "if the newspaper didnt publish the picture of the "Ravens" they could at last send it to him' came acrross as a bit stalkerish. I realized thats not how you meant it of course but I figured I might give you a heads up about a potentialy flamable line.
Its only flamable of course if one misconcieves and mis interpets the formentioned(its my ism)line. All in all great story, I like your writing style and I like the 'Scrapbook' idea. Have a good day.

Ah, this is the story with the bit about Robin wanting a copy of the photo of Raven after seeing her fan club attempt meditation! I've been trying to remember which one that was in for the longest time xD Serves me right for not reviewing this earlier like I should've...regardless, I hope you are prepared for a somewhat long review. I like this one a lot "
I totally get a Moment-verse aura from this xD Anyway...even though this isn't canon, this completely clears up my questions as to what Robin did with that scrap of fabric from Raven's cape in The Beast Within episode xD What I really liked about this story though is your approach to "The Wall." I've never read a story so far that mentions that wall of newspaper clippings that we occasionally see in Robin's wall and it makes the story so unique. Raven being the only one to know "The Wall" turning into "The Scrapbook" makes it that much more awesome 8D I don't know what to say really...I just really admire how unique this story is (like all of your other stories)

So do I respond to the story? Or to your review replies? Why choose?
'Scraps' is, as you pointed out, similar to the 'Moments' series. But I agree, it doesn't quite fit. In some ways it's just too melancholy. Many of your fics play on the gaps in between the words that the two birds say to each other, but whereas 'It Only Takes A Moment' gives the reader an impression of a chasm just waiting to be crossed, 'Scraps' presents us with what appears to be almost painfully unbridgeable. Of course that's just my interpretation - which is conflating not just the story - and the way you portrayed Robin especially - but also the fact that you categorized it as a 'Romance/General' and that in canon at least Beast Boy ends up with Raven (ugh). Anyway, I liked it. Another piece of wistful subtext to a relationship where that's by and large the thing to read.
As for you replies: I am most pleased by your graciousness towards myself. I feared that you might find my impertinence displeasing in the extreme. Ok ok. So I was a little afraid you'd be offended. Anyway, I can only respond to your news about the 'Moments' series as Starfire would: "Glorious!" and then I'll add: "Fantabulous!" as well.
So we finally get another 'Moment'? Man oh man, that's so cool. Excellent timing on my part - I completely agree. But I must say that I'm always rather disappointed with my reviews. Without fail I end up leaving out words or forgetting to make something plural, which by necessity makes me feel stupid. C'est la vie.
Finally, you're humility is endearing, but ill-founded. When you have more than one oneshot receiving over 45 reviews, you're a celebrity of the fanfic community. Now I grant that 'It Only Takes a Moment' should have a thousand reviews rather than the wholly ridiculous... 463 (as of when this was written), but I'm assuming it will get another boost once you've updated it.

This story was very well written. I loved the decriptions between Robin and Raven's room. Really, I liked the entire thing.
Pure greatness. :D

You're right that 'Scraps' doesn't fit within the plot of IOTaM, especially after the developments that occurred in the most recent chapter, 'Wishes I.'
Of course, it doesn't really fit in anywhere after chapter 10, 'Sleepless,' which brought with it a creeping continuity that, while largely absent from prior chapters, has since gained momentum and more importance in subsequent moments.
However, were you to go back and place this moment before 'Sleepless,' it would fit in quite well, especially between chapters 7 and 9, 'The Beholder' and 'First Snow,' respectively.
It's a reminder of those earlier moments, here I'm thinking of 'Cups,' 'Pasghetti,' and 'Tea,' which subtlety highlighted the depths of the Birds' relationship, which even they aren't fully aware of, and the comfort they find in each other's presence.
But speaking of comfort, what is it that causes Raven to feel comfortable in Robin's room?
She recalls the smells of her bedroom and that, combined with her presence in Robin's room, revives memories of her youth on Azerath. How did her presence in his room serve as the catalyst that brought about memories of home and allowed her to realize that she finds a similar comfort in Robin, or at least in his room? Was it the overall cleanliness and lived-in feel of it?
It's a small point and doesn't in the least detract from the overall goodness of this Moment shoulda-been.

Tottally loved it. And I cant quite place how do you do manage to take a fact as simple as the diferences in Robins room (for the short minutes they are broadcasted) into a hole (and great) story! Since the evident background research to the details from the show, its amazing. Perfectly made. Nice story!
Keep writing please! and sorry for a very delayed review

nice little one shot

So I finally got around to reading this, forgive the lateness. I haven't had a chance to really read much of anything for awhile.
This was in a word...perfect...It was sweet, funny and everything I have come to expect from you when you write a scene between these two.
It felt like a very quiet scene, like the gentle lapping of the waves against the shore. No real thick tension, but enough to keep the scene interesting. I love it and I think it has moved to the top as one of my favorite one-shots from you now.

Awwh XD love it! awesome job! i havent read a rae/rob fic in a while so this was a refreshing start after a long period of time
the moment you wrote about that scrap of raven's cloak that she found in robin's room, i knew which episode that was from! awesome choice too! :)
| LM22102 chapter 1 . 8/8/2007
Why have I not read this before? I mean, wth, I receive Author alerts from you, don't I?
This just popped out of nowhere when searching for Raven Completed fictions, and BAM.
I am utterly and completely blown away.
This was .. so casually good. No words, lady, no words. Maybe because it's 2AM, ahahahah..
