(A/N) People reviewed? Always a cool thing. Annnnnnnnnd, here's the answers to the questions asked. Ambrosia , your first couple questions were pretty much the same thing, so, I believe the reason the story works is because so much is left to the imagination of the reader. Let them fill in the gaps they see and then wonder about it all until you get some nice takes on what might be. And the other two questions were also about the same thing, and I'm sorry to say this, but I don't write lemon, lime, or even grapefruit…except in this sentence. Just something that I don't do, but I can say that I don't mind the thought of a couple living happily ever after, I just don't really want to write about what happens to them after they've gotten there.
Disclaimer – Once upon a time there was a little boy who didn't own the Teen Titans. He wasn't me since I'm hardly little at 6'5" and 285lbs. But this little boy really was little. He was so scrawny a youth that he had trouble seeing over the bottom of his own shoes. I stepped on him and stole all of his powers…the power…to not own the Teen Titans. I shall try to wield it judiciously.
The Annotated Raven – January 13th
What do you write about in a journal like this one after you've gotten what you wanted?
Affection says you write about how things are going just in case they don't work out, but I'm having a hard time seeing anything but a future between Beast Boy and me…uhm…I mean, Garfield. He told me that that was his name last night. I already knew that from the personnel files, but he wants me to call him that or Gar when it's just the two of us. Kind of weird, but cool too.
I'm very nervous about what's going to happen today. I've decided to show Gar this journal. You know, calling him anything other than Beast Boy is going to take some getting used to. But, I want to show him tonight after our date. He's taking me to some new vegetarian restaurant and then to an arcade. Yeah, I don't know why I said yes either.
He finished reading this about a half-hour ago. He looked half-surprised and half-embarrassed. For a while he was just really quiet. It looked like he was thinking about it all. When I asked him to say something he apologized for not having noticed sooner. He said it was time we could have used for doing stuff like we've been doing.
I thought he was talking about all the dates we've been on lately, but then he gives me that childish grin he uses whenever he's said something he thinks is funny that other people would have missed. So, of course he's talking about the kissing. I pinned him to the ceiling for a bit, but it didn't even come close to wiping that stupid grin off his face. It didn't help that he kept pointing out all the times that I had started a 'make out session.' That's what he called it anyway.
It doesn't help me strike fear and terror into his heart when I start smiling because he's talking about that kind of stuff. And, it doesn't help me keep from smiling when I know he's right. What can I say? I like kissing him.
I think I'm the happiest I've ever been.
I think it's after midnight.
This is Gar. Don't get mad Raven. I just felt like I needed to tell you something and this seemed like the best place to put it, especially after you showed me everything else you wrote in here. I thought the ways you made fun of me when you were mad that I didn't notice you hitting on me were funny. That's not what I wanted to tell you, it's just something I forgot to say when we were talking after I read your love journal. I thought that was a funny thing for you to have, but I'm glad you did. I just wanted to say that I love you. I can't believe you actually ever went out with me. I guess that's why I didn't notice what you were doing all those times. Part of me thought it couldn't be true. But, I love you and you love me and I don't think I've ever been happier either.
Who's gonna tell Star? She'll give a death hug to whoever does. And Cy and Rob are just gonna tease us about it the first time either of us says "I love you". You know what though? I don't think I mind any of that since it means that I've got you, babe. Whoa, Sunny Bono and Cher song. Cool.
(A/N) I know I said I'd have this written by Sunday, but I have a valid reason for not doing so. I didn't e-mail myself a copy of what I had written already at work so that I could keep working on it at home. It was frustrating to me. But, I now have this final entry complete and another one shot up as well. It's weird having finished this entry today. It's tax day and I work for a CPA, you'd think we'd be more busy, but nope. We're caught up to where we need to be, so it's looking like we're going to have a slower day and the boss is probably going home early. Strange days. And one other thing. A brownie point to anyone who noticed my little idiosyncrasy. I have thirty-one chapters in this story and I use every number up to thirty-one for the dates in the chapter titles.
