Well, this is my first fic, so it's probably going to suck, then again, it might not. Depends on the reader, I suppose... Anyway, some of this is going to be AU, some of this, like what Raven's powers can actually do- I don't really know, I never read the comics. Somebody who wants to fill me on that, go ahead, but I won't use it in my story unless it comes up. It probably won't. Oh, and I am going to try not to use over used themes, like Raven's emotions (no offense to those of you who did that, but it is over used), so if I do, please tell me and I'll fix it, unless I put there on purpose...

She let a sigh escape from her, looking out the window into the dark and stormy night, waiting for Beast Boy to stop talking. He'd been talking about... well, she didn't know anymore, she stopped paying attention. She'd been feeling more and more uncomfortable lately, and she didn't know why.
"Well, you've been acting kinda strange lately. Anything you want to talk about?"
"...No. I just feel like something's going to happen.. That's all."
"Something good...or bad?"
"...I don't know. I'm going to bed."
With that, she left, heading to her room. She didn't want to be bothered anymore. She sighed. She shouldn't have told Robin that. Now he'll just worry, and he'll never stop asking her about it. Oh well, what's done is done, isn't it?
As she climbed into her bed, she couldn't shake the feeling. Something was going to happen. She just didn't know what.

She woke unexpectedly two hours later. She felt confused, anxious, but mostly, she felt like she needed to get out of bed. She wouldn't be able to sleep, she knew. She had to do something, anything. She left to go to the living room. She would sit by the window, watching the rain fall, like she had done all week.
When she got there, she sat down and waited for the night to be over. This was going to be a long night.
But before two minutes had passed from that thought, she looked out into the sky just as a flash of lightning lit it up. She saw a...boy... falling? Why was a boy falling from the sky as if he was tossed out of a plane unconscious? She didn't know, but she had to save him. He would die if he hit the water at that speed, but from the speed he was falling at, they couldn't get to him in time. There was no way. She hit the alarm and decided to try anyway.
The rest of the titans were out in a few seconds as if they had been waiting right outside the door. Beast Boy was the only was who didn't look ready, being in his boxers, sucking on his thumb, and carrying a stuffed green elephant. Doesn't he ever get tired of the color green?
Cyborg was the first to ask. " What happened?" He looked at Raven's anxious face. "Raven? What's wrong?"
"There's a boy falling outside. See him? I can't get to him in time, but I figured that maybe Starfire or Beast Boy could. Hurry!"
Beast Boy and Starfire immediately took off the catch the falling boy. In between the falling rain, the bright lightning, and the thunder booming, they could barely make the boy out. They could only see him because of the speed at which he was falling. He was almost at the water...
Starfire was flying as fast as she could, and Beast Boy went into the water in case he hit it before they got there. They were almost there...but so was he.
Raven, Robin, and Cyborg just watched as the race for time continued. But they could all see what was going to happen. It couldn't be avoided.
Raven just pulled her hood up, and waited for the inevitable to happen. But Starfire and Beast Boy were so close, it looked as if they just might make it. All of them were hoping and praying Starfire could get there fast enough.
Then the boy hit the water.

All right, it sucked, even to me. It was short, but it really does look a lot bigger in word. I can envision it in my head better than I can write it, obviously. I might even not continue it, I feel that bad about it already. It might be my first fic, but honestly... somebody tell me what I can do to improve...
