Ahhh! That confession was beautiful! And gorgeously written too! My hopelessly romantic side loves hopelessly romantic beast boy. Thank you for writing this! You definitely did do it justice

Another story finished. Once again a satisfying read.
We end off with Beast Boy and Robin heading out to deal with the person sending the disturbing fan letters. Raven is panicking one she realizes where they have gone and tries to contact them. Turns out there was no need to worry. Beast Boy current go through with it, not wanting to disappoint Raven. He even makes a big speech about it.
Things change Raven, and it looks like that included your emotions. Hearing Beast Boy pour his heart out about how he fell in love with her touched her in ways she didn't think possible. The only question that remains is how she will handle it.
Of course Raven would pry that speech from Robin once they come back.
Raven initiating the hanging out with Beast Boy, that is something new already. Raven even got to experience flying differently.
Here we go, Raven's confession. Almost didn't happen until Brave stepped in took charge of things. It is amusing to see Raven so willing to initiate kisses when you compare where she was at the beginning of the story. Such a sweet ending.

A fun discussion between Affection and Raven. Affection preaches how even though Raven can be influenced by other people's emotions, they can force her to feel emotion or force her to act against her will. Every action and conversation she has had recently with Beast Boy has been her own. Raven just wants Affection to tone it down so she doesn't accidentally hurt Beast Boy. Affection does seem happy with the outcome of the situation. Silly Happy. Answers to questions, or playing airplane?
Well, a random urge to spy has given Raven insight of exactly how Beast Boy fell in love with Raven. I greatly enjoyed reading that part. It was quite detailed and tied into the entirety of the show. Good thing Raven was her soul self or something would have exploded and gave herself away.
After seeing Beast Boy pour his heart out to Cyborg, Raven has to meditate to calm her emotions. I wonder if Affection was the one to push Raven's memories of Beast Boy to the forefront of her mind.

Delicious, delicious fluffy diabetes.
Nightmares, or fluffy Beast Boy dreams. What is worse?
I roll my eyes at Raven trying Beast Boy's cereal hoping it would taste bad. After having Beast Boy give her so much attention each day that he was guaranteed to annoy her at some point in the day, Raven can't seem to handle Beast Boy backing off and not annoying.
Wow, I thought the jabbing at Aqualad was all in good fun, but it seems like the boys were quite serious. Even after Raven tells them to back off Robin and Beast Boy press on. I almost makes me feel sorry for the letter senders, almost.
That was quite the sweet gesture Beast Boy thought off. Contact the fanbase to spread the word and give Raven some nice letter to show how much she is appreciated. It was quite the clever plan, too bad he didn't count on young innocent writing to give away his anonymity.
Raven was quite overwhelmed with the response she received. She was also able to easily figure out Beast Boy had a hand in it. How cute, a friendly hug and a peck on the cheek. So was so overwhelmed that she had to retreat into her mind to express herself before she caused any damage with her powers.
She is wondering what Beast Boy is doing after leaving in the middle of opening fan mail?

An apology from Raven to Starfire leads to a deep discussion of emotions and of Starfire trying to convince Raven she is just as deserving of love as anyone else. Logic and Love never mix. I feel like that phrase will have meaning later on in this story.
Interesting, so Raven seems to complete connected to Beast Boy' Aura now. She is able to sense him from long distances and feels his emotions much more than the others. Did the kiss have something to do with that? Or maybe Affection is planning something. It certainly seems unlikely at this point that Beast Boy had anything to do with this.
Aqualad randomly asking Raven out on a date. Interestingly, after Raven said that logically, there was no reason to refuse, she politely declined. I wondered what the reason was, but it appears she was being mindful of Beast Boy's feelings. While she doesn't return he affections, Raven doesn't want to see Beast Boy hurt either.
Similar to the last story I read, Raven seems to be stuck. She doesn't return Beast Boy's feelings, but she can't bring herself to push him or his feelings away either.
No sure if that was a guilt induced nightmare about toying with Beast Boy's feeling, or of potential regret of doing nothing when Beast Boy is offering himself. Of course Malchior would have to show up in a nightmare about romance. Beast Boy didn't even need to talk to Raven to comfort her. Just basking in his affection was enough for Raven to calm down.
I am guessing that the scarf is symbolic of Beast Boy's feelings for Raven, and how happy Raven is wrapping herself in them. I wonder where brave is in the dream space.

Really Robin, do you really need a play by play of what Raven said to Beast Boy. Isn't a summary of what happened combined you the statement that Beast Boy took the news as well as could be expected enough.
Inside Raven's mind, Timid was working in overdrive. Just seeing Raven was enough to get her crying again.
I interesting platonic explanation why Affection and Happy are in high spirits after Beast Boy's kiss confession and everything that happened afterward. Just the fact that someone who knows so much about Raven and has seen her at her best and worse is able to sincerely love her is a nice feeling. Not everyone is that lucky.
Well, Beast Boy seems to be acting as if nothing has changed. I wonder if Beast Boy is choosing to no longer hide his feeling since everyone is now aware, or if Raven was really just oblivious until now.

I was wrong, Starfire just plain retreated in order to keep what happened a secret. Raven was actually the one to seek out Starfire. She is really freaking out about what happened. Starfire gets Raven to focus on the two important points, what to tell Beast Boy and Raven's feelings for Beast Boy. Thinking about telling Beast Boy what happened just causes Raven to freak out more, spouting out random plans that are even crazier than the ones Beast Boy comes up with.
Starfire brings up the good point of put Raven in Beast Boy's shoes and asking if she would want something like this kept secret, so if nothing else it is decided to tell him what happened.
Raven has also decided she doesn't like Beast Boy as more than a friend, so that will also need to be addressed.
The other Titans always seem to forget that Beast Boy's ears are not just for show. Not buying Cyborg's and Robin's lie, he follows them to the security room and founds out what he did.
I see, it is not the fact that he kissed Raven that bothers him, but the fact he has no memory of it. His first kiss with the person he liked and he can only see it as a third party observer. While Raven let him know she doesn't feel the same way, it was nice of her to give him a new memory to replace the one he will never have.
Is Raven's replaying what just happened in her sleep, or having a random pleasant dream?

This is a fun idea. Hypnotized Beast Boy via Mad Mod's hypno screens obeying commands.
Haha, Starfire wants to keep Beast Boy in cute kitten form, but having Beast Boy close to Starfire even as an animal ruffles his feathers.
Really Cyborg, forcing Beast Boy to break his beliefs. You should be ashamed. Good thing Raven was there to correct that mistake. I wonder if Beast Boy has been praticing making tea for Raven or if the hynotic command automatically make him proficient.
Honestly, apart from Starfire's kitten request, Robin's command for Beast Boy to clean his is probably the most tame. I presume even hypnotized, Beast Boy wouldn't throw out anything important.
Haha, not sure if Raven's plan could be considered backfired or not. Apparently the thing he most wanted to do was give Raven a passionate kiss. She certainly wasn't expecting that. Once the shock wore off, she was quick to retreat in order to calm her emotions. I presume Starfire left for a girl talk.
Oh Beast Boy, so innocent and ignorant to what happened. Thinking he turned British due to tasting tea. Okay, Beast Boy saying his mouth gets him in trouble with Raven is rolling of the floor laughing worthy. Perfect ending to this now first chapter.
