I don't even know what to say. It's just... God, when you finally stumble upon a guy-writer it turns out his stories are all you've been looking for. This story was absolutely awesome and this epilogue was gold. Can't wait to read more of your work! (Oh and btw, the whole guy-talk and guy-perspective? Damn, so good)

And the journey comes to an end. All in all, nice job.
I felt sad for Raven, after almost 200 years with him, she was now in the desert for 300. I understand that she was lonely after he was gone, but after having such a rich and deep relationship and marriage with him I can't help but feel that the friends with bennies relationships that followed would have seemed hollow and empty to her, especially if one assumes that she continued to grow during the centuries. That she had such an arrangement with one of Dick and Starfire's descendants was disturbing, it almost sent the message that there was more to her one night stand with Dick than met the eye, that there was some unfinished business. It was borderline creepy. I guess it could have been worse, it could have been one of her own offspring. Now that would have been messed up.
Having an unnaturally long lifespan, she was doomed to see new friends and loved ones age faster than her and die long before she did. I think that prospect would make her turn inward. I guess I could have seen her start a monastery where she would live the rest of her life in quiet solitude and meditation, keeping people at an arm's length so that she wouldn't have to deal with losing them again.
My heart also broke when she assumed that she had no soul. Even after 500 years the poor girl never did learn to accept who she was, that she wasn't a monster and that it was her humanity that define her.
Now maybe I'm reading things between the lines that aren't there, but I walked away with the impression that Raven finally achieved her full humanity when she was reunited with Gar in Heaven, since there is no way her demonic side would have been granted admission. So now that she's in paradise her burden is gone and she is finally a human being.
Final note: I know I gave you grief over the things you did that I didn't like, but overall this was a very good story.

To Mr. Lamont Cranston...
I cant remember when i started reading your stories, it feels like forever ago. I must say that I am heartbroken to see this series end. A none more fitting end than for Changeling and Rae to be together eternally. And a very philosophical ending as well. I loved this story and I can't wait until your next adventure.

Quite wonderful. You know funny enough ive never held the same world view as others when it comes to the finality of death. Some people fear it/loath it, are indifferent, or embrace it(depending on world view and philosophy).
I just consider it another beginning and im happy to see that to some degree you agree with me on this (or at least when it comes to the ending for the story anyways).
Other then the odd grammatical error the story was quite phenomenal and intriguing. Especially the parts about both changeling and raven living to a very very ripe old age. It certainly poses a philosophical question of "What can we accomplish if we had almost all the time in the world to accomplish it in?"
Everyones answer would be different but seeing the way that raven went about answering it seemed truly authentic to her character and i do have to say good job and major kudos to you sir cranston. :) Hope you continue writing Teen Titans stories because ill be sure to read and review for as long as i am able.

The line "His hands shook too much to play video games" made me smile. He'd definitely still be playing video games throughout his life; I know I would be. Garfield's final joke got me too. What a great way to go.
The concept of living so long boggles my mind and you handled it really well. The afterlife part was also a sweet way to end it.

Ugh. Raven got with a descendent of Nightdick?

Wow. I don't think i've ever seen an ending this utterly satisfying before. I couldn't fathom how you could have one die before the other and have me be HAPPY after reading that, but it was truly expertly written and stunning to read. I think this story will always stick with me. It truly is a masterpiece and I hope you are beyond proud of it. I actually got a bit teary eyed reading this final chapter.
Thank you, Lamont.

When I comes to Batman, I subscribe (as I often do,) I must admit, to Gaiman's precedent. Batman dosen't go to heaven, or hell, or any afterlife at all. Across the multiverse its all the same; his punishment and reward is to be Batman, to be himself and all that entails. A happy childhood, somehow knowing that he is profoundly happy, and its cruel destruction leading to a life of struggle, pain and heroism. And he dies, no matter what, saving lives and punishing the wicked. He never stops, not really. And it kills him. And then he's reborn as himself, and once more gets to be happy.
It doesn't matter if this version managed to hold off the reaper, he's gong that same way for that same reason.
