Hello. Another fic from yours truly! This is a song fic, which I never thoughtI'd do, but I just had to try this. This story is based on "The Wall", a rock opera by the band Pink Floyd. It centers on a character named "Pink", who has built an emotional wall around himself. Sound like anyone familiar?
This story's going to be mostly a series of one-shots until the latter chapters.
Disclaimer: I own nothing. I do not own Teen Titans. All lyrics, songs, titles, and themes pertaining to "The Wall" are property of Roger Waters and Pink Floyd.
Chapter 1: In the Flesh?
Who am I? You really want to know? Alright, I'll tell you, but I must warn you, my story is not a happy one. You see, some people have had the luxury of being normal for at least part of their lives. I'm not that fortunate.
So you thought you might like to,
Go to the show.
To feel that warm thrill of confusion,
That space cadet glow…
First allow me to introduce myself. My name is Rachel Roth, but you might know me as "Raven." I work with the Teen Titans, doing all that stereotypical hero stuff. You know, having superpowers, kicking bad guy butt, and fighting each other for the last slice of pizza. I never really was what you'd call a "happy girl", though. I spent years as a teenager fighting crime, all the while thinking I was the evilest being on the planet. Strange, huh? Being the daughter of a demon prophesied to destroy the world will have that affect on you. Even after his death, I was still haunted by my own nature. But I'm getting ahead of myself.
Tell me is something eluding you, sunshine?
Is this not what you expected to see?
Not exactly what you expected to hear, is it? Well, as I said, my life is far from being all sunshine, rainbows and butterflies. But this story however, isn't just about me. It's about a boy. To clarify that, a skinny boy with green skin and pointy ears. I admit I didn't think that much about him at first, but that boy ended up teaching me more than any Azarathian wizard ever did.
If you wanna find out what's behind these cold eyes,
You'll just have to claw your way through this disguise.
But first, I think you'd better know a little about me. Beware though; what you see might not be what you'll get. Behind this cold, hard exterior of mine is someone entirely different. You might not like what you see at first, but hey, don't say I didn't warn you.
So lights, camera, action…on with the show.
By the way, all chapter titles are the songs from the album. If you want to hear the songs, you can sample all of them off iTunes, but they're only 30-second clips. You could also try searching for youtube music videos, so you can hear the whole thing! You can listen to the first song here. This is an AMV from youtube with some clips of Final Fantasy. (I've never played the game though.) Simply copy and paste the URL into your browser bar (minus the spaces of course), and go:
