Happy birthday to me. I eat too much cheese. I occasionally lick ke-eys! Happy birthday to me. Hehe. (Dudes, even the hehe rhymed.)(Yeah, it was a week ago, but its all good. Sorry this is late... We are WORMS! We've said it before, you people just dont listen.)
THE END! I don't know whether to laugh or cry…
Bob: Yeah… it's kinda of like a funeral that you want to happen.
Tenshi: Oh, you mean like my g-pa's?
Bob: Perhaps you shouldn't tell people that you want your grandfather dead… they might think badly on you.
Tenshi: Hn. Well, the old bas-er- dude deserves it. The butt monkey.
Bob: Butt monkey? No, wait, I don't want to know.
Tenshi: Eh, lets not fight this chapter Bob; it's the last one after all.
Bob: Fine, but the truce is over when we start the next story.
Tenshi: sigh. Deal.
"If love is the answer, could you rephrase the question?" - Lily Tomlin
It was several days later that Cyborg finally announced that he had finished Raven's room. She never thought she would be so happy to see four walls, windows and a door again in her life. To make things even better Cy had installed her own private bathroom so she wouldn't have to deal with the others on a day to day basis; his little way of saying sorry she supposed. The best part however was that nothing, abso-friggin-lutely nothing, was white or beige. Life was good.
To top it all off the others had apparently taken her 'rant' to heart. Robin had even asked Star out on a date, though it was probably due more to Star having taken the initiative in their 'relationship' and proposing marriage to him than Ravens complaint about their 'not-really-there-but-there-because-the-unresolved-sexual-tension-is-palpable' romance. Raven had to admit though, that had been funny. She didn't know Robin could get that red.
Cyborg and Beastboy were also trying their hardest to actually think of others for a change. It wasn't had for Cy but Beastboy was always second guessing himself and trying to extract his foot from his mouth on a regular basis. It was due to this foot-in-mouth-itis that had him standing in front of Ravens newly constructed door waiting for her to let him in.
He couldn't even remember what it was that he had done, though in all honesty it could have been any number of things. All he knew was that Raven had contacted him via the communicator and demanded that he come to her room immediately. She hadn't sounded very happy.
For a minute Beastboy had allowed himself the small fantasy that she had come to realize his feelings for her and she was getting ready to confess her own. It would be just like her to want to do it behind closed doors, so the others wouldn't see. The rational part of his mind, however small, had crushed that idea fairly quickly.
The likelihood of Raven doing something like that was about as likely as an army of gerbils building a giant machine and taking over the world. And though he would suspect the evil rodents of something sinister like that he couldn't believe the part about Raven.
Sighing he knocked on the door, awaiting his doom.
He didn't have to wait to long. After a few seconds the door opened a crack and then, before he knew it, a grey hand reached out and, grabbing his collar, yanked him into the room.
"What - Raven?"
"Shh, you don't want the others to hear us do you?" Beastboy gulped loudly at the purring nature of Ravens voice. He had only heard it that way once and that was when she was trying to seduce Mad Mod. Surely she couldn't be trying the same thing on him?
"Uh, what… I mean, you called me and… um - what did you want?" Beastboy wanted to smack himself, that wasn't the smoothest thing he had ever said in the presence of a girl. Of course, it wasn't the worst thing he had said either, that award went to 'I have to pee', which was the only thing that had come out when he had tried talking to that hot blonde that worked at the video store.
Shaking off his thoughts he tried to focus on what Raven was saying, he had zoned out and missed part of it. "… and then I though, 'Well, I'd better talk to him about it'. So what do you have to say for yourself?"
"Uh… nothing?" Beastboy didn't have the foggiest as to what she was referring too; she probably had mentioned it during his reminiscent. All he knew was that denial usually worked well.
"You have nothing to say about that? I would have thought you would have had plenty to say. I mean, you had a whole two pages dedicated to it in the past week alone." Raven was looking at him with an annoyed expression on her face, her hands on her hips.
"Pages?" Beastboy couldn't remember writing anything, well, anything she could read anyways, in the past week. He would have suspected she was talking about an after action report or something but Robin had banned him from writing them any more. Apparently he liked to input his personal opinion on everything, not to mention all the spelling and grammar mistakes. One time writing about a battle Robin had been fighting, that went along the lines of, 'And then Rob jumpd the bad guy and his cape, witch is really pointles, waived behiend him like a gay pride flagg, and then hit him right in the face, witch was funny dudes' and he was never allowed to do them again.
There was something that he did write in though. Occasionally, when he had to get something out of his head, he wrote in a journal. And it was a journal because guys didn't do diaries. But Raven couldn't be talking about that. That particular item was currently in his room, under his mattress. There was no way that she could have even known about it, not to mention get her hands on it. No one was brave enough to touch anything in his room, not even Raven.
It was about that time that a thought hit Beastboy. Like a semi-truck hauling a ton of bricks and a small African elephant.
With a sinking feeling he remembered that Raven had indeed been in his room, and in fact, had gone so far as to not only touch his things but his mattress in particular.
"…and after all that you have nothing to say? And with peanut butter!" Beastboy blinked at Raven, he had zoned out again and only caught the end of whatever it was she was saying to him. Peanut butter did ring a bell… an awful bell that sounded almost like it was ringing out his death toll.
"Yes peanut butter - you are the one who came up with that after all."
And indeed he had. One of his entries in his journal had been about how he would like nothing better than to introduce the sticky substance known as peanut butter to a certain grey body he knew and how much he would like to lick it all off afterwards.
Suspicions confirmed, Raven had read his journal. Crap.
that Rae - well… you see…"
"Don't bother explaining yourself… I just want to know what gave you the idea that I would even consider peanut butter. I hate the stuff. You could have used chocolate syrup or something I might like."
"I know, and I'm sorry - wait a minute… what did you say?" Beastboy just stared at Raven. Not daring to hope what he had heard was true. She couldn't have meant it… could she?
"Are you saying what I think you're saying? Cause if you are - well then sign me up." He finished with the biggest, goofiest grin Raven had ever seen in her entire life. And being around Beastboy and Starfire on a regular basis, well, that was saying something. It almost made her feel bad about having to follow through with her plan. Oh well, she would make it up to him later - maybe with cherries.
She had been racking her brain for something suitably wicked to do the green shifter. Remembering the book she had seen lying under his mattress she had gone back and gotten it a few days ago. She was hoping to find his biggest phobia, or at the very least something embarrassing she could hold over him. What she had found was nothing of the sort. At least three quarters of the book was devoted to her, or at least things that he wanted to do to and/or with her.
At first she had been furious but, after reading more and more of his entries, had learned that it wasn't just a sexual thing for him. He really, truly liked her, and even though she would have her revenge on him, she would remember that for future reference.
Her plan after that had been to bring him in and embarrass him. Show him how it felt to have someone invade his privacy as he had done to her on so many occasions. But things weren't going as planned.
Raven nearly smacked herself for the stupid chocolate syrup slip up. That had not been in the plan. Sighing she decided that, since she was already heading that way, she might as well continue.
"Listen Beastboy," She watched him to make sure he was paying attention this time, "I read almost all of your journal and I don't mind if you… well, if you feel that way about me."
whole face lit up, "Really? Does that mean that you feel-"
"Don't get ahead of yourself Garfield." Beastboy winced at the sound of his name. "As I was saying, I don't mind. But, and yes there is a but, stop laughing!"
Beastboy couldn't help himself, hearing Raven say that there was 'a but' put his mind right into the gutter. And as a young male that was where it was normally. "Butt. Hehe."
Raven shot him a glare, "Are you through? Good. Where was I? Oh yes, your feelings are fine but you can't allow them to interfere-"
It was Beastboy's turn to interrupt, "Its not going to interfere with work. I already know that. And, I've felt this way for a long time and it hasn't caused any problems. So, if you don't mind, and I continue the way I have been, do you think…?"
Raven just closed her eyes; this was not the way this was supposed to go. She had been planning on setting him straight, for the time being anyways, then proceed with her plan, which she had dubbed Mission: Revenge.
Beastboy watched Raven with her eyes closed, the emotions playing over her face made it apparent that she was fighting with herself over this. Before he could think better of it he leaned in close and gently pressed his lips to hers. And prayed.
He prayed for many things. He prayed that Raven wouldn't push him away, he prayed that she would return the kiss, he prayed that she wouldn't maim him beyond recognition.
At least two of his prayers were answered. Raven didn't push him away though she did pull back, and so far, she had yet to start the beating he was sure he was going to get.
They stared at each other for a few moments before Beastboy couldn't take it anymore, "Say something - please!"
Doing a slow blink, she opened her mouth but nothing came out. She tried a couple of times before her voice started cooperating again, "What… Why did you do that?"
"Because I wanted too."
Raven just looked at him like she had never seen him before. Where was the cowering green midget she was used to? She had a queer idea to start searching under rocks to look for him. Shaking that image out of her head she just looked back at the changeling sadly, "This won't work Beastboy - it just wouldn't…"
Beastboy grabbed her by the arms, something that shocked both of them, "Please, don't say that. Just, just give it a try - that's all I'm asking. If it doesn't work then fine - but please… please."
Raven did the only thing she could do, especially when she saw the tears welling up in his eyes, she agreed, "Alright. But if it doesn't work this isn't going to get weird. Right?" For once she was the one who needed reassurance.
Beastboy just smiled at her and nodded before pulling her towards him and into a crushing hug, "Yes, it will work. You'll see."
Raven finally pulled away, a smile on her face, "Ok, so - what do you want to do now?"
Beastboy returned her smile, "Well, you said you liked chocolate syrup..."
Outside the room Cyborg was walking down the hall. Upon hearing strange noises coming from Ravens room he leaned in to put his ear against the door. Before his flesh could make contact however he jumped back. Something large had hit the door on the other side causing it to shake.
Reaching for the door chime to make sure that Raven was alright he stopped when he heard a loud, high pitched voice, a voice that sounded a lot like Beastboys, especially those times when Raven had him huddled in a corner calling for his mommy.
Backing slowly away from the door, he really didn't want to know, he decided that it would be best if he didn't interrupt. In fact, he was going to warn Star and Robin to stay far, far away as well.
He could still hear his green friend's voice as he walked down the hall…
"RAVEN! What are you going to do with that flame thrower!"
Cyborg shuddered and quickened his pace when he heard Ravens response, "It's called revenge Beastboy. It's called revenge."
(I know I promised more 'missing episodes', I will try to add them later :) sorry.)
If you couldn't tell, it's The End!
WHAT DID I TELL YOU ABOUT FLUFF! WTF WAS THAT?
Bob: That, my dear Tenshi, was pure genius.
Tenshi: You make me sick!
Bob: What happened to our truce?
Tenshi: The same thing that's going to happen to your dead and dismembered body - it went flying right out the window!
Bob: squeaks. Dead and dismembered?
Tenshi: Oh yes… you are going to die!
Bob: What if the people like it?
Tenshi: o.o, if we get a total of over 250 reviews… I suppose I will let you live - for now.
Bob: Review people! For the love of my life review!
AN: Thank you all, very much, for your support during this monster. I wouldn't have been able to do it without knowing there were people out there that actually wanted to read it. Sigh, Bob says thanks as well. Truly this is the best response we have ever gotten on a story and because of this we worked our tooshies off on it. We hope you enjoyed the journey as much as we did. We will be working on more stories in the future. I am starting university in the fall and, thanks to a minor in creative writing, I will be writing more - and hopefully better - stuff, its good practice lol. So if you like our crap then check back with us occasionally.
On a lighter note, we will be catching up on reading! Yay! So, if you have a story that you would like us to check out - this is where you can shamelessly plug your stuff - then by all means tell us about it and we will go read it. I will try to keep Bob on a leash.
Django X -
I hope you survived your weekend, I barely did myself. My family is
sooo annoying, especially around birthdays and holidays. Glad you
liked the last chapter. I hope this wrap up is up your alley as well.
That sucks, you being banned from the 'puter (and yes, its 'puter
- cause I'm lazy lol). But I'm glad you found a way around it
lol. Parents really are funny. They think because they say 'no'
that kids are going to actually respect that no and listen. I know I
never have. I just wanted to give you a great big hug for being such
a great review. Thanks very very very very very much.
Siren of Time - Ah, fluff. It is fluffy, evil and multiplies exponentially when near Bob. Hope you liked his input in this chapter… I know I had to brush my teeth afterwards cause of all the sweet sap. Glad you liked the last chapter and we hope you enjoy this one. We just wanted to thank you one last time for being such a great reviewer. Here, have Bob as a parting gift. Oh pooh, it looks like there is a no-giving-away-muse-as-a-gift clause in his contract. Thanks again - so very much.
AnEeZa - You're hooked? OMG - someone get this person to the fanfics rehab center stat! lol. Thanks for the complements. We like complements. They make us feel all fuzzy inside. We did update, unfortunately it's the last chapter we updated. Oh well, we certainly hope that you did enjoy the story and this last chapter. And we like it when people say we actually have a plot - it got lost once or twice but it came home in the end ;) thanks again for the great review.
elizabeth - you can say ewww again, truly. And we agree - it was wrong… but funny. Come on, cant you see Raven hitting on an older guy? Ok, sure, the hitting would involve her fists or something she threw… thanks for the happy b-day. Not many people actually said that to me so it's nice to hear - er - read. Bob and I wanted to give you the worlds biggest cheese log as a way of saying thanks for all the support. Unfortunately we couldn't find a way to ship it through the internet. It's the thought that counts though - right? But seriously, we thank you very very very much for sticking with us and reviewing to all our crazy ramblings. So, THANKS!
addicted2danny - As you can see we didn't get to work in your idea… yet. Lol. We will probably work in one more chapter, a missing episodes type chapter, and I will try to work something like that in there. I would have worked it into this one but we already had this written before we got the review. As for what happens to Beastboy, well, due to the clause about graphic animal cruelty not being allowed (at least that's what Bob is always telling me) we couldn't get to descriptive - but we hope you got the idea. You had to shower after our last chapter? I'm not sure whether to be disturbed or intrigued. Hmm… ok, I wont ponder that to much - I might hurt myself. Anyways, we wanted to say THANKS! For all the wonderful support you have given us. We luvs it and we are glad you could join us down this little road of insanity. THANKS again!
World of Nightmares - that's ok that you didn't have a lot of time in the review, it's the thought that counts. Glad you liked the chapter and we hope you like this one. We wanted to say thanks to a very loyal reader who was with us since the beginning. We luvs you lol. Bob says he might even be willing to have your illegitimate children - though I'm not sure how… So, once again, THANKS!
K.C. Raven - Well, now you know… you know what happened to Beastboy and you know that I have no control over my fluff obsessed muse. Hope you liked how this monster turned out. We know we liked having you reviewing :) A great big THANKS go out to you for all the support along the way. Soooo, THANKS!
StrugglingArtist - You just started writing out of no where? Well, that's how all the great ones begin! You have to post it, absolutely! We will go read it if you do… I'm always nervous when I post a new story… I hate flames, they kind make me cry… ok, so they don't, but I still don't like them. And I always have this fear that people will write stuff like, 'you suck' and/or 'stop wasting our time with this drivel'. But I have discovered something, most of the people that read stories on this site are super nice, like you (wink). So don't fret to much over it, just write what's coming to you, post it and let us know where it is :) thanks for the b-day wish, most people forgot to tell me that, well in real life anyways lol, so its nice to hear it. We give you a great big fluffy hair ball in thanks for all your support. You can toss it around when you get writers block. Lol. Thanks again for everything!
Wave Maker - Aww… Great? Brilliant? Genius? You say the sweetest things. Of course you're right though, it's all Raven, not me. She is just able to be seen that way… which is kinda scary. And here is the long awaited next chapter. Unfortunately it's the last chapter, well, unless we do another missing episodes chapter, but still, the last chapter of the story. Thanks for the support, and the review, we luvs reviews…
Ravyn13 (H.o.t.C.) - you know, I'm slow - it took me a minute to figure out you weren't calling yourself hot c something or other. But then it dawned on me - yeah, Tenshi is slow sometimes. Woohoo, I'm going to have you on the commercial. You know, like the subway guy. Read Tenshi's stories and you too can fit two people in your pants… um - Riiight. Cows with Guns, sigh, more people should hear that song. It's great - well, to us anyways. As for Jackanapes… well, we were trying to think up silly British insults and that one popped in there. Lol. Anyways, we thank you whole bunches for all the support. We luvs you :) THANKS!
Overactive Mind - Base Sanity? What is that? Um… I'm sure everyone has one but we have yet to locate ours… here sanity sanity… sigh, you're right… we started writing this chapter and when I got to the end I realized that you could just choke on all the sweetness… darn muses. Oh, you weren't complaining… well, now don't we feel sheepish - bahhhh. Just joking lol. Glad you liked the last chapter, hope you will find this a good ending. You have been a great reviewer. You just didn't feed us junk like - 'great chapter write more'. We like substance in our reviews and because of that we award you the 'Fiber Fill Review Award'. It's for any great reviewer who actually feeds us more than crap. We luvs it. So, THANKS! Again lol.
WickedWitchoftheSE - Aw, thank you. We are glad you liked the last chapter. We hope this one goes over well as well. Hmm, there are too many wells in the last sentence… oh well. Dang… no more wells! Right. We want to thank you for all your support. We luvs support. It makes us all glowy inside… heck, you can see right through Bob he is so glowy… oh wait… he's not wearing any clothes… AVERT YOUR EYES! IT BURNNNNS! But, seriously, on a more serious note, THANKS! Hehe.
dark girl - well, we cant promise this one to be a funny as the last, our meter is broken and its hard for us to gauge, they just come out how they come out. But, we do hope that you liked this one as well. It was the closing chapter and we are proud of it, and whole friggen monster combined. We are also proud of all our reviewers, including you. AWW. You lubs us, you really do. Sniff. We just want to say THANKS! For all the wonderful support you have given us! So, one more time, THANKS!
BrianDarksoul - I agree with Rae, you're a perv. Lol. But that's not a bad thing… we would have used your suggestion, and made Rage a very happy girl and all, but then we would have had to up the rating to M. lol. So we will just leave Raven and Beastboy to go play together, with the flame thrower, and enjoy themselves. Lol. Thanks for joining us through this monster, we liked your reviews, they reminded us of this one guy we knew, he had split personalities lol. Makes us want to hug you, well, at least the you 1,3, and 7 - we're not touching the others. So, now that we are at the end, we send you a great big THANKS, to all of you lol.
Dark-Anime-Gurl - Ah yes, it was a bit creepy, having Raven hit on Mod…. Hmm… but it was funny. Well, we thought so anyways lol. So, now you know what happens to the green little man, sort of… we didn't want to get too gory - or descriptive… people can use their own imaginations as to exactly how Raven is going to use that flame thrower… you have given us an idea for a new story however, we think we will call it 'Titan Phobia' and have each chapter dedicated to a Titan, or villain, and a particular phobia they have… the more bizarre the better. Yes, we shall blame, er, we mean, dedicate it to you. Lol. Anyways, we want to say a great big THANKS for all the support, we luvs it.
meek-bookworm - aw, you liked our quotes? Sniff, we didn't think anyone read those. Just for that we will give you a few more: 'I married beneath me, all women do.' Nancy Astor, 'Women are more irritable than men, probably because men are more irritating.' Anon, 'If a woman hasn't met the right man by the time she's twenty-four, she may be lucky.' Deborah Kerr. There, those were just for you. Yep, this thing did turn out to be a rae/bb… we warned you in chapter 1 lol, don't blame us for any trama. Bob likes rae/rob though, so our next story will be one of those… muses and their powers - fear them! Thanks for the support and the review!
Imp - AHAHAHAHAHA! Sorry, but if you had ever called my cell, and got the voice mail, you would know why I'm laughing. I have spaceballs on it… the 'I'm surrounded by as-holes' quote. I love spaceballs, but you know what - that never occurred to me. Dang. Thanks for the suggestion though lol, if it wasn't to late already we would have totally used it. Anyways, thanks so much for all the support and reviews. We luvs them.
windy - thanks for the review, we are glad you liked it. This is the last chapter however, so we hope you enjoyed what we have so far. Thanks again!
Tears of Eternal Darkness - Aw, thanks. We are happy to see you enjoyed it and found it funny. This is the last chapter but we hope that doesn't take away from the whole story, or your enjoyment in it. We thank you for your review and support! Thanks!
Phantom5656 - Yes…. Bob…. What did happen to Stars undies? Huh? Bob! Don't run away when I'm questioning you! Get back here! Dang… stupid muses. Well, it would appear that Bob had something to do with the missing undergarments. I never knew he had a thing for Star… hmm… oh, right. Back to the review… I feel your pain, with the muse problem. I only got one because of terrible writers block and now I'm stuck with one that wants to go left when I go right. Sigh. Thanks for the kind words about the multi-chapt fics… we really want to do more… because people read multi ones more than one shots, but we are terrible at finishing them. Ok, I'm terrible at finishing them, Bob just has strange ideas as to how to finish them. If you do the MI thing, you have to tell us how it goes lol. I might end up doing it too lol, friends wedding and all… hehe - love to freak out inlaws… good times. Its either that or randomly licking people… but we don't know where they've been… anyways, thanks for the review, and the support. We greatly appreciate them! THANKS!
schmuck - Hi, well, um... normally we would say welcome, but you've been here since the beginning, just hiding... kinda like a stalker... but a good one - is there such a thing as a good stalker? Eh, there is now. Good Stalker Schmuck... kinda has a ring to it. Anyways, thanks for the review. Your own tall about a spider made us laugh - vunerable... hehe... sorry - we are sick. Yep, Beastboy has to finally face the music, or rather, the flame thrower... glad you liked this story, how this chapter is a good ending. We want to thank you for the support and the review :) so... THANKS!
AzhureTigress - MEDIC! Get this reviewer some angsty stories fast! Oh no, we are lossing them to the funnies! Hurry! Strap down their cheeks with duct tape! Oh no! Its breaking through!... ... ... ... Sigh, we've lost another one. lol, just joking. We are glad to know we caused you pain - er - laugher... riiight. Snorting? hehe, wanna know a secret? I snort sometimes too - people laugh at me when I do it, but there you go. I certainly hope you didnt wake anyone up, they might ban you from reading us anymore and then you wouldnt know how this moster ends! lol. Thanks for the review though, we like to hear from our readers and know if they are enjoying the story. And we hear you about it being hard to find something to laugh at these days... its a cruel world... thats why we choose to make our own reality in my head. Its pretty vacant in there - you could come and stay with us some time. But you would have to be willing to put up with rabid penguins and Bob. Bobs worst than the pengiuns. So, THANKS again, for the three reviews, and in one day too, and support :)
XxHunter The One and OnlyxX - well, this is the end. sniff, we will miss you ... oh wait... your not dead... and we will be back? Huh? Dang it Bob! Stop writting my scripts! Stupid muses. Anywho, glad you liked the last chapter, that was more me than Bob, he is to blame for this chapter... the sick little puppy. anyways, we want to give you a great big cuddle fizzy, no, we arent sure what that is either, but you deserve it! We loved having you review and we thank you for all of those reviews and the support. So, THANKS!
