This is a little BBxRae fic I've wanted to write for awhile now. Pairings: BBxRae, RobxStar, CyxJinx, and a bonus pairing. Raven will be OOC at times throughout the fic, most likely because this is my first Teen Titans story. Disclaimer: Teen Titans belongs to Cartoon Network and DC comics. All songs used belong to their respectful artists and/or record companies. Now let's get this party started.

It was a balmy summer's evening in Jump City and a couple of Teen Titans were going out to romantic dinners.

"Ready to go?" Starfire asked as she walked into the common room wearing a sparkling green dress that matched her eyes perfectly. Robin opted for a tux instead of his usual uniform, but still wore his mask. Though you could still tell he was staring in awe at her.

"Let's go sweetie" she said snapping Robin out of his trance.

"Try not to drool too much, I just cleaned the carpet" Cyborg joked earning a death glare from his fearless leader.

"Well we'll see you guys later" Robin called as they left for the evening.

"I still can't believe those two got together"

"Yeah, but they do make a cute couple"

"Kind of like two other people I know" Cy said grinning.

"What? You mean me and Rae?"

"Hey, I'm just saying is all"

"Look, Rae and I are just friends. Nothing more" Beast Boy said somewhat dejectedly. Cy noticed this, but decided not to press it.

"Well I have to get ready for my date, have a good evening, man"

"You too, dude" Cy left to get ready leaving BB to his thoughts. 'I wonder what Raven's up to. Probably in her room doing who knows what, or on the roof meditating' BB decided to watch a little TV. A little later the doorbell rang. (AN: Do they have a doorbell?)

"Hey grass stain, could you get that?" Cy called from his room.

"Sure thing tin man" BB called back as he headed for the door and opening it to reveal Jinx in a midnight blue evening gown with ruffles at the bottom and black heels. She also had her hair down in stead of her usual pigtails. In short she looked stunning. Even Beast Boy caught himself staring.

"Um, excuse me but is Cyborg ready to go?"

"Huh? What?" Beast Boy said snapping out of his trance.

"I said is Cyborg ready to go?"

"I think he's about ready"

"Ready for what?" Cy said entering the conversation. He had just finished polishing his bionic parts and wore a black suit with a red tie.

"For me" Jinx said huskily. Cy got a huge grin on his face.

"Hey Jinx, you look great"

"Thanks, you too"

"Shall we go?" Cy asked extending his arm which Jinx gladly put her arm around.

"Let's shall" So saying they headed to the T-car for a fun-filled evening leaving Beast boy alone.

"Boy I thought they'd never leave" BB said to himself. "Now to put Operation: Rae of Sunshine into effect" While that was happening Raven was in her room taking a nap. A few seconds later she woke in a cold sweat.

"Whoa, that was a real nightmare" she said to her self as she tried to forget the horrifying dream she just had.

Raven's Dream

She was at the park sitting on a black blanket with various foods set out.

"What the hell is going on here? If I didn't know any better I'd swear I was at a picnic, but where are the others?" She said to herself looking around.

"Miss me?" said a familiar voice.

"Beast Boy?"

"In the fur" he joked causing Raven to roll her eyes.

"Where are the others?"

"Probably back at the tower"


"We're on a date so they stayed behind" Raven gave him a confused look. "Are you ok?" Beast Boy said with genuine concern.

"Uh, yeah, fine" Rae decided not to worry him.

"In that case dig in" Beast Boy said back to his usual goofy self.

"Yes, dig in" said a voice that sent shivers up her spine.

"No! It can't be!" Raven whispered in a scared tone.

"What can't be?" BB asked.

"Uh, nothing"

"So, I'm nothing to you? That hurts coming from my own daughter"

"Why are you here?"

"To destroy you the way you destroyed me!" Trigon yelled appearing right in front of her. "But first I'll destroy your friends starting with the green one" he said picking Beast Boy up and started squeezing the life out of him. Raven tried to move to stop him, but found herself rooted to the spot.

"NOOOO!!" Raven yelled waking up. "It was just a nightmare" she said trying to calm down. After a few minutes she was feeling better when suddenly she heard music. "What's that?" she wondered as she got up and walked to the common room following the sound of guitar playing. She was about to head into the common room when she heard her name.

"I'd like to dedicate this song to Raven" she heard Beast Boy say before he started singing Absolutely (Story of a Girl) by 9 Days.

This is the story of a girl

Who cried a river and drowned the whole world

While she looks so sad in photographs

I absolutely love her

When she smiles

About this time Raven walked into the common room and saw that it was indeed Beast Boy playing guitar like a pro.

'Wow! I didn't know he could play guitar so well. Or that he had a good singing voice' She thought to herself as she continued to watch the show.

How many days in a year

Did she wake up with hope

But she only found tears

And I can be so insincere

Making the promise is never for real

Is long as she stands there waiting

Wearing the holes in the soles of her shoes

How many days disappear

You look in the mirror so how do you choose

Clothes never wear as well the next day

And your hair never falls in quite the same way

You never seem to run out of things to say

This is the story of a girl

Who cried a river and drowned the whole world

While she looks so sad in photographs

I absolutely love her

When she smiles

How many lovers would stay

Just to put up with this shit day after day

How do we end up this way

Watching the mouths of the words that we say

And as long as we stand here waiting

Wearing the clothes and the soles of her shoes

How do we get there today?

When were walking too far for the price of the shoes

Clothes never wear as well the next day

And your hair never falls in quite the same way

You never seem to run out of things to say

This is the story of a girl

Who cried a river and drowned the whole world

While she looks so sad in photographs

I absolutely love her

When she smiles


And your clothes never wear as well the next day

And your hair never falls in quite the same way

You never seem to run out of things to say

This is the story of a girl

Who cried a river and drowned the whole world

While she looks so sad in photographs

I absolutely love her

This is the story of a girl

Who's pretty face she hid from the world

And while she looks so sad and lonely there

I absolutely love her

This is the story of a girl

Who cried a river and drowned the whole world

While she looks so sad in photographs

I absolutely love her

When she smiles

When she smiles

As the song concluded Raven couldn't help but applaud startling Beast Boy.

"Raven?! How much did you see?"

"Pretty much the whole thing"

"Oh" Beast Boy said his ears drooping slightly.

"Why didn't you tell me you could play the guitar and sing so well?" She asked sitting down next to him. Beast Boy's ears perked up at this.

"You think I sing well?"

"Yeah, you did just put on a brilliant performance"

"Well, thanks. I'm glad you liked it"

"Of course, it's not everyday a girl gets a song dedicated to her" She said smirking. Beast Boy just stared at her shocked.

"You heard that?"

"Sure did. And I thought it was very sweet"

"You think so?" he said inching closer to her. Raven noticed this, but didn't move away.

"As a matter of fact I do" Beast Boy once again moved a little closer making Raven a little uncomfortable, but again she didn't move away.

"Well, I'm glad you enjoyed it" Beast Boy now started to put his arm around Raven who was starting to get really uncomfortable.

"Yeah…uh…" Raven was struggling to come up with a way out of this without hurting Beast Boys feelings. "Are you going to sing some more?"

"Maybe later"

'Damn' Raven thought before an idea struck her. "Are you hungry?" Beast Boy's head shot up, eyes wide.

"Dinner!" he yelled shooting up from the couch and turning to Raven. "Wait here!" he yelled before running off to the kitchen. A few seconds later he ran back. "And hold my guitar for me" he said handing over his guitar which Raven took hesitantly. "Be right back" he yelled running back to the kitchen leaving a confused Raven sitting there holding BB's guitar. Several uneventful minutes later Raven found herself strumming Beast Boy's guitar to help pass the time.

"You know I could give you lessons if you want" Beast Boy said startling Raven. "Sorry, just wanted to tell that dinner is about ready so if you'd care to join me in the dining room. Oh and please put this on" Beast Boy said producing a black blindfold from his pocket. Raven eyed him warily. "Trust me I've got a surprise for you"

"You know I don't like surprises" Raven said flatly.

"Trust me, you'll like this"

'Fine" Raven said taking the blindfold and tying it around her head. Taking her hand Beast Boy led her to the kitchen.

"Ok you can take the blindfold off" Beast Boy said a few minutes later.

"This better be worth…it?" she said in awe when she saw what BB had done to the dining room. He had put a red table cloth over the dining room table complete with plates and silverware. And he had the lights down low making for a romantic atmosphere. "Whoa" Raven said breathlessly. "You did all this?"

"Yeah, for you" Raven turned towards him and got another shock when she saw him wearing not his uniform, but a black suit with a light green button up shirt underneath and a red tie.

"Wow" was all Raven thought to say as she was still getting over her surprise.

"I'm glad you like it"

"I love it"

"Now if you'll sit down I'll start serving dinner"

"Ok" Raven said uncertainly has she sat down.

"Now are first dish comes from all the way over in the kitchen" BB joked causing Raven to roll her eyes. "Anyway, we have a nice salad with ranch dressing on the side for you and one with Thousand Island for me"

"Thanks" Raven said as the salad was placed in front of her. The two ate in silence for awhile until Raven broke the silence.

"You know this salad is pretty good"

"If you think the salad's good wait till you try the main course" Beast Boy said as he took the now empty salad bowls away. After that they had a nice meal of vegetarian lasagna the two found themselves back on the couch just talking about stuff.

"You know Garfield you really surprised me today"


"Yeah, you showed me a side of you I don't normally see. Usually you're a big, green goofball…" Beast Boy's ears drooped at this and his head lowered. "But, tonight you showed me that you can be very sweet and even a little charming" Beast Boy's ears and head shot up at this.

"You really think that?"

"Yeah, I do" Raven said as the two found themselves moving closer together.

"Well I wanted you to take me seriously for once. I know I can be annoying at times, but I only try to make you laugh and get you involved in activities cause I care about you so much. It's just that…"

"I spend a lot of time alone in my room" she finished for him.


"I never thought of it that way. I'm sorry"

"It's cool" Beast Boy said flashing his usual goofy grin. "Though there is a way you could make it up to me" BB said the grin never leaving his face.

"And that would be?" she asked uncertainly,

"This" he said as he pressed his lips to hers in a tender yet loving kiss. Raven sat there stunned. Admittedly she had thought about kissing Beast Boy a few times, but never thought it would feel this good. A moment later their lips parted.

"Wow" Raven said breathlessly.

"You liked it?"

"Does this answer your question?" Raven said before throwing her arms around his neck and pulling him into a passionate kiss. Now it was BB's turn to be stunned as Raven continued to kiss him. A few seconds later their lips parted.

"Rae? Can I ask you something?"

"One: don't call me Rae, and two: sure"

"Would you like to go out with me sometime?"

"I'd love to"

"Sweet" A little later Cy and Jinx retuned to the tower and walked into the common room.

"Why is it so dark in here?" Cy asked as he turned on the light and the two got a surprise. Lying on the couch in each other's arms fast asleep were BB and Rae each smiling.

"Well it's about damn time"

"Aww" Jinx cooed as she saw the sleeping couple on the couch. "You're right, they really do make a cute couple"

"Not as cute as you, but cute nonetheless"

"You're not so bad yourself Mr."

"Thanks. Now why don't we get these two to bed" Cy looked to Jinx who was giving him a look. "There own beds"

"Ah. Ok, but be careful"

"No prob" Cyborg replied as he carefully picked up Raven and started heading for the door.


"What?!" Cy said whirling around causing Raven to stir, but quickly fell back asleep.

"I have an idea"

"Don't scare me like that!" Cy said angrily, but made sure to keep his voice low.

"Sorry, but maybe my idea will make you feel better" she said as she whispered it into his ear causing him to break out into a huge grin.

"That's cruel, sadistic, and downright hysterical. I knew there was a reason I loved you"

"I love you, too" she replied picking up Beast Boy rather easily even surprising Cyborg. "Now let's go" She said walking out of the room being followed close behind by Cyborg as they started enacting their plan.

Like it? Hate it? Think it's the greatest opening chapter of all time? Yeah, right. As always ideas, comments, criticisms, and generous cash donations are welcome. Anyway, I hope you enjoyed the first chapter. I promise it will get better. Hopefully. Until chapter two is released R and R please.
