So Robin has decided to start pulling back from Terra, (let's see how long that lasts), and BB is going to try to handle things.
You say that you kind of let the story move on its own, and it really shows. The emotion in this chapter flowed out nicely and the character interactions didn't seem forced. Developments with the Raven/Robin/Terra relationship are my favorite to read about, but it's also great that you aren't neglecting the other characters.
You certainly did deliver on this chapter.
I see you have good amount of stories you'd like to write. Honestly that kind of creativity is pretty cool.
As always, I'm looking forward to the next release.

OH MY GOD, YES, YOU UPDATED AND IT'S GORGEOUS AS ALWAYS! ! ! XD I must agree with your analysis about this chapter; I loved ALL of it! It was all very strong, relevant, and continuously-beautiful writing. I like how Jinx always ends up being the not-completely-outside listener, and is so unexpectedly good at it. She's changed to the other team, but she's still not a goody two-shoes and I've always admired how you've managed to balance out her change of heart with personality and past experiences. I've seen her character messed up in other works, but you nail it beautifully.
Aha, and despite my complete love for this entire chapter, I believe that my personal favorite scene was when Raven was flying around with Rain in their living quarters. I can imagine it perfectly and that tender little bonding moment between mother and daughter not only fills me with pleasant warmth, but is like a perfect contradiction to the fear that there is no real bond between them beyond the biological.
Oooh, and since I don't know when that poll's going up, but I'll probably forget I'll about it, I'm just going to say right now, that I would very much like to read the "how exactly Robin and Raven got together" story as special chapters of Seized, just like you did with The Human Stain chapters. You'd already proven yourself adept at weaving past events into the story in such a way that it is relevant to the present, so I have faith and confidence that your gardening-brand of story writing would be able to work it in, in a natural, sensible manner.

As always, beautifully written and worth all the wait! It's really cool to see all these character interactions come to life and I think you played the cards well, my friend.
Everything looks great and very fluent!
You have this way of always leaving us with a cliffhanger where we can't wait for the next chapter! But it definitely is great to hear from you again!

Wow, I just read through the whole story and really impressed. I'm hoping you will release the next chapter soon because I'm eager to see what happens next.
I kinda want robin to end up with terra now but I doubt that would happen.

Another great chapter. Yes I feel for raven. What she went thru to have this baby and to feel that her child prefer terra. It's kinda sad. But I can't really blame rain too. She's a baby and still learning.
I live the part in the hospital and towards the end where Robin was teasing raven. Make her leave her comfort zone. It was cute. I love their bantering the most. Thanks for posting. Hope to see another chapter soon.

This. is. brilliant! In all the fanfiction I've read over the years, I've never seen anything like this before, so I think you've succeeded in that goal! But holy heck, that's a lot of words per chapter (STILL LOVE IT!). Hm, there is one thing that I remember reading somewhere (and I have no idea what chapter it was anymore either, so don't ask where), but I remember somewhere in all this (glorious writing!) that Raven mentioned how she'd never asked her mom about her pregnancy, but it was undoubtedly much worse for Arella because she was a carrying a human-demon hybrid child, and how she /wanted/ to give birth to Raven and the pregnancy nearly killed her as a result, or something along those lines (that was the impression I got). However, is there a possibility that Trigon might have somehow forced Arella's body not to die, even as it also probably tried to abort the baby, so that his portal would actually come into existence and not die via miscarriage? Just something I thought of when I read that bit.

Oh my, was that a long chapter, but well worth reading. I look forward to reading how this little drama over Rain's upbringing plays out. Keep mastering the world of turmoil like you always do.
| TheDreamChaser chapter 10 . 10/8/2013
Wow. That was a big chapter, nothing wrong with that. I love it, I really love it. What I loved the most about this chapter is that you finally acknowledge Rain and Terra's close relationship, I noticed it from the beginning and I kind of hoping this would happen.

Again, it's about time the writing bug hit you again. I thoroughly enjoyed reading through Raven's meditation as well as Terra's dilemma. The idea with Rain is quite intriguing. What fascinates me the most is your ability to capture an interworking relationship among the team. Don't worry about the next update. Write whenever the need hits you. If I ever acquire Twitter I'll look you up.

Lol. I read your note at the bottom. It really made my day.
I'm glad you finally updated and gave rain more time in this chapter. However i'm upset that you just stopped right there. But good things are always to follow right? So I can't wait for the next chapter to come.
I love that you gave raven more comedic lines. It's funny and smart. I love it when she teases Robin about his genetics. Please update soon! Don't make me wait for another year!

I can't wait to read the flashback scenes too for your next chapter.
| krazieneko chapter 8 . 6/27/2012
I love the flash backs about raven's pregnancy. And i love that there were more raven and rain's interaction. Rain is almost 3 years old and she still can't talk? Talk about developmental delay. But the sounds that come out of her sounds maybe like tamaran. Maybe starfire's teaching rain her language. Lol. Please update soon!
| Jae B chapter 8 . 6/14/2012
Definitely a reflective chapter, I'd say. Although I don't know the personality of her character, I wouldn't mind seeing a little more of Starfire's reaction to Robin's confession. I understand if you're not interested since this is a R/R T/BB fic though. Truthfully, your writing seems a little more reflective than in past fics nowadays. Hope you're enjoying yourself with it. Update whenever the bug hits again.
| TheDreamChaser chapter 8 . 6/5/2012
This chapter is really good, glad Starfire is okay now.
This story deserves more reviews, update soon.

What you have here is an absolutely amazing story. Truly, positively, absolutely. I mean it. (Incase you couldn't tell.) You are very talented at dissecting, or really creating and then revealing, the characters emotions, and you deserve to be commended on your flashbacks, they are some of the best I've read. Your dialogue is splendid and at times reminds me of my own, if of only more fleshed out and meaty. While all that is fine and dandy, a propr critique, and helpful review, requires more than slavish praise, even if the negative points are mite forced and at times quibbling over technicalities. So first off is a technicality. The particular way you write your story, with much dialogue and internal musing is great for what you're writing now, bit doesn't lend itself to other genres well, especially not ones of a more actiony persuasion, but as I have not read an action scene of yours I could be proven wrong. This brings me to my next point, while I love your story the only thing really stringing me on is the flashbacks and any conflicts feels micro sized and unsustainable in nature. Simply put, I don't see any real driving conflict. That is my only real concern o be honest, but like any fanfic I've read over the course of a few days I could be missing something. Regardless keep up the fantastic work and don't let your gem of a story turn into another dusty corpse by not wrapping it up for us!
