Ello! I'm very, very happy today. Not only did I get the shirt I wanted for Christmas, but I also got the eleventh A Series of Unfortunate Events book, The Grim Grotto. So anyway, this here's a songfic. This is my very first songfic so please review! Raven is mostly dreaming in this chapter.

Also, I'd like to thank eternalluna for the idea. You are definitely getting something from me, even though I'm still figuring out what XP.

The song is Imaginary by Evanescence.

Swallowed up in the sound of my screaming
cannot cease for the fear of silent nights
Oh how I long for the deep sleep dreaming
the goddess of imaginary light.

Sighing, Raven carefully laid her necklace on the dresser next to her bed. Since she had gotten it earlier, she didn't want to take it off. Even now, she had trouble putting it down next to her bed. Carefully, she grabbed her magic mirror and gazed into its depths. Seeing the usual glowing red eyes, she closed hers, and let herself dragged into the imaginary world her mind was.

When she open her eyes, she saw everything had changed. The sky was a strange purple colour, rather than the usual black. There was a setting sun, spreading its light to the rest of its light over the already-purple sky. No emotions in sight. At least, not yet.

In my field of paper flowers
and candy clouds of lullaby
I lie inside myself for hours
and watch my purple sky fly over me

Finally, she spotted Happy, flying around with a big smile on her face.

"Wheee!" she screamed.

Raven beckoned her closer. The pink cloaked nuisance flew in.

"What's up, Rae?"

Twitching at the sound of her hated nickname, she calmly answered her.

"Nothing much," she answered, "I was just wondering if any of you had anything to do with what happened earlier today."

Happy looked puzzled.

" 'Scuse?"

"You know, with my powers just stopping like that."

"They stopped?"

Raven nodded. Happy laughed, and got back to flying, her cloak flapping in the breeze.

"Whatever happened, I had nothing to do with it!" she screamed.

Seeing as hadn't caused it, Raven followed the path coated with paper flowers. She wanted to ask her other emotions, to see if they had caused it. No matter how many times she asked, she always got the same answer: "No".

However, she got a slightly answer with Angry.

"Me?" she cackled, "Unless you haven't noticed, you're stronger than everyone of us. Something else happened."

I linger in the doorway
of alarm clock screaming monsters calling my name
let me stay
where the wind will whisper to me
where the raindrops as they're falling tell a story


Raven sat down on her bed. No chance finishing The Red Death now. She thought about all the events that had happened today. The necklace, her powers, Angry. She laid her head on her pillow and closed her eyes. It seemed as though she never would sleep, but somehow, she fell into a doze.


Raven ran through a dark, windowless corridor. Running so hard, she could feel drops of sweat falling from her face.

"Let him go!" She screamed.

Her voice echoed eerily off the walls.

"Let him go!"

A voice cackled through the room, joining itself to her pleas.

"Let him go? Now why would I do that?"

Raven ran towards the source of the noise. There she saw them. A girl, wearing a mask resembling Slade's. And Robin.

"Why would I let Robin go?" she teased.

She was holding the boy in question tightly, a gun pressed on his head. His mask was lying on the floor. Raven could finally see his eyes. They were green. Deep green. And they shone with terror.

He looked about to scream, however Rose held her free hand on his mouth. Sweat drops fell from his forehead to her hand. Ignoring them, she pulled the gun off his head, and pointed it to Raven.

"Who shall I kill first? Raven, or Robin?"

Raven flung her hand out towards the menace. She screamed her magic words, yet only a spark flew out from her hand. Rose smiled devilishly, and pulled the trigger, pointed to the wonder boy. With one last scream, Robin died in her arms.


"Raven?"

"Rae?"

"Hello?"

If you need to leave the world you live in
lay your head down and stay a while
though you may not remember dreaming
something waits for you to breathe again

"What?" Raven opened her eyes, numbly rubbing her head.

"She is awake!" Starfire exclaimed.

The sorceress blinked at the sound of her friend's voice. She was surprised to see the other Titans grouped in her room.

"Why are you all standing around my bed?" she asked.

"We heard you screaming," Robin explained, "and thought something must be happening."

"Screaming?" she asked. "I don't remember anything that could make me scream."

"Well, you did scream." Beast Boy added.

She sighed, and reached over to her dresser.

"Hold on a sec, let me grab my…" Her mouth gaped open.

The necklace was not there.

"This?" Cyborg asked.

He was holding the necklace tightly in his hand. The gem glittered for a few instants, and died down to its original state.

"Yes. How…" Raven started.

In my field of paper flowers
and candy clouds of lullaby
I lie inside myself for hours
and watch my purple sky fly over me


Outside, a figure hid in the shadows of the night. It glanced up at the distant T-shaped tower as a sly smile spread across it's lips.

"This is only the beginning, Robin." It whispered, "Only the beginning…"


Thankies, eternalluna!

Also, neither the song nor the Teen Titans belong to me.
