Sure would be interesting to see poor Jinx with a job when Raven is more into pleasure and changing in every way for her.
Sucks to be Robin ;)

I think this story was amazing. I love jinx raven pairings, I can't wait for the sequal.
I thought the story was well writen, with no spelling errors (That I could find, though I wasn't realy looking very hard for them).
I thought it was a very smooth read, the character all had there unique characteristics.
I thought it was a nice funny/romantic story/ with a tiny bit of drugging in it.

errrr can u tell me how to imagine jinx's style of hair? becos idk how to imagine it.
""She quickly washed her hair and gently blow-dried it until it had a wind-swept appearance. Still in its nigh-permanent horn style, the hair splayed a bit at the ends and formed wide, curving waves above her head.""
Got a picture of it? " Sorry

I found this while surfing for things to kill some time and was blown away. I loved the easter eggs you put in (Hitchhiker's references, ftw!) and the way you portrayed Raven's and Jinx's feelings as they grew was just amazing. There were several places I lol-ed and just about fell out of my chair a couple times. I, as well, would love to see the sequel.
You may have just given me my next obsession after Kim Possible. Keep it up! :-)

The best Raven/Jinx story I have ever read! I love the way you wrote it especially. By focusing on one persons thoughts and emotions at a time made the images so clear, so defined. I could literally feel what they did. As you can imagine that caused some ... issues during chapter four.
Do a sequal! You're not doing yourself justice leaving it here.

I must confess, dear writer, this is a story I recur to many, many times when I'm feel like reading. Just like Concolor44's Transition and Enemy of my Enemy, Belleradh's A Cup of Sugar, Vermillion Ascendant and Fate Accompli, or even Khaleda's Pluto and...well, almost all of her works. Those, together with this one - and your other works, like Bluff - are what define the couple for me. More than that, those stories define what a good story should be, in many different levels. Sad, Happy, Violent, Deeply philosophical, anything you name it, I probably will look at those names first.
Now, do understand, the first time I read this work was in January, 2010. It was during my first trip overseas. A trip I made to Europe. England was my current position, and this particular fanfic holds a special meaning, for me. Somehow, against all odds, I managed to devour it in one sitting, making funny faces or angry faces and growling at the walls for no apparent reason other than the pure enjoyment I was having. (When I particularly like a book or a movie, my face will always show something akin to what's happening during those.)
Now, enough background, yes?
First of all, the idea. It was so crazy, so incredibly mad and insane, that against all odds - and Jinx is especially good at doing that, isn't she? - it worked. Jinx could have faced the same problems she mentally had during Bluff, facing a heterosexual Raven, or a bird whose heart was closed to her candy goodness. How you depicted her desperate beyond measure, trying with all her might to find some reason - any reason not to execute her plan. It was here that I first started to make funny reactions, if you wanted to know. Surely you didn't, but I don't quite care, do I?
Anyway. Her plan was oh so ingenious. Using holograms to lure the Titans - and Raven. Raven. - and finally kiss her. That was bloody genius. Now I'm imagining you with a scientist's coat (I first spelled scientits. Funny.), glasses and hair like Eistein's . By the end of the story, you'll be beyond god-level, so don't worry.
I absolutely love how nervous Jinx was when she first asked Raven's kiss. It was so sensationally real, you made me feel like a Voyeur. Just sitting here, watching it all unfold in front of my very deceased eyes. Naughty me, and naughty you.
Now, I do wanted to comment on everything that happened in your work. I really wanted to. But it would be like writing a whole new story, just with my rantings. My reviews tend to get very, very wordy when I let so much awesomeness accumulate. Anyways!
On Jinx. Have I said I love your depiction of her? Down to the very name. Kamala Malti. Kamala Malti. It sounds so nice, and yet it fits the girl perfectly. Like good chocolate, must I add. Good chocolate makes everything better, and so does Jinx. Anyway. The vortex of emotions going on inside the girl's head is always a wonder for us - me - to read. While I tend to imagine the girl to be a bit more zany and maniacal, yours had a order to her chaos. Albeit they did not nullify each other, such a thing existed within her. It was, and still is, a very nice change of paces for the girl. She was determined. She had a goal. She had a dream. She wanted Raven, of all the people. And then Brother Blood appeared and her life went face first through a river of goddamn and shit. Poor, Poor zany girl. Makes one wonder, how her life would've been if the psychic never showed up.
P.S.: Drugged Jinx had me giggling.
How she went from Desperate to fearful, to incredibly happy with the wow and zing-y feeling, to nervous again, then drugged - heh - to happy, frustrated, angry, sexy. Damn, that was quite a journey, and it isn't even close to the end. You showed us so many sides of the pink haired girl that it's a sin.
P.P.S.: That dance had me staring intently at the screen and yet nowhere, drooling to my imagination. I believe I forgot how to blink, for my eyes were watery and burning when I finished.
And your Raven. God, your Raven. Usually I really enjoy when a writer decides to dwell on her more... daemonical heritage. Exploit her emotions, forbid the deadpan! I do enjoy that. But you went one step - or twelve - beyond what I'm used too. You went downright red-skin-quadruple-eyed daemonic. THAT, my friend - Even if I'm not, bear with me. - was madness in essence. And do I love me some madness.
The contrast you created with the usually deadpanned, calm, reserved and controlled Raven with the out-going, emotional and carefree, well, red Raven was stupendous. And the reactions the latter caused were just outright hilarious. Plus plus, such a territorial creature, isn't she? Wants everybody to know the pink minx is hers and hers alone.
P.P.P.S.: Good hell that dance. Someone, get me my sunglasses.
And the evolution of her personality, truly amazing to watch. Just like Jinx's, Raven's demeanor went through so many different changes in such a small period of time, all of them masterfully crafted to perfection. It was a joy to read, and I suspect will continue to be so for a very, very long time.
I won't prolong this review any longer, for it's already a behemoth as it is. Just a few pointers, good madam sir thing human. Flawless Grammar. I don't think I've picked up any misspellings, but then, I was so engrossed with the story that the words were flying straight through my eyes, directly to my imagination, so I may have slacked off on my ever watching of grammar mistakes. If there are and I haven't seen them, truly sorry.
Second, your skill as a writer is, indeed, very good. There was not a single time where my eyes were wandering to something else. I was thoroughly and completely captivated by your words, as if hypnotized. Wait. You hypnotized me, didn't you? Put a spell on your story, so that my eyes were glued at the girls! I knew, from the very beginning! You're Gandalf!
Or Morgan Freeman. With boobs, if you have them. As for now I have no idea of the nature of your being, oh mysterious one. PRay do you write more stories, for at least one - legion - will be reading them feverishly. That's me, by the way.
I think this is over. Yes.
Out of 10, I will give you 9001 for the...damn, I don't even have words that describe how intensely and gratifyingly good this thing is. If you find out, do tell me, yes?

| Greader chapter 5 . 6/2/2011
this was hilarious. It had me busting a gut walking down the street! I love how you portray demon Raven. I hate it when people make her physically weak. This is just brilliant! You've got to post some of your other fics sometime. These are GREAT!

That, I must say, was a great story.
