Hey, I'm ssjEasterBunny. Believe it or not, I've actually been on ff.net for over ten years now! Damn...
Why the Teen Titans?
Because the characters are fun! There are so many sides to each of them, as individuals and as a functioning group. Their youth allows them to be human and relatable, rather than confined to stereotypical heroism. It's so interesting to look at superheros from such a down-to-earth perspective, and I always thought this made Teen Titans a unique show. It 'focused' (a term used loosely, I admit) on character development and only used a connecting plot every few episodes, as if it was in the background.
My own stories also emphasize character development. "A Martian Abandon" is my most recent and was a lot of fun to write. It explores what makes Raven tick and how she experiences attraction. The other stories are fairly dated and I was much younger when I wrote them. Note that "The Art and Dance of Reconciliation" has had its first half rewritten, some chapters from scratch. It looks at Terra and Beastboy, and how each might react to their separation after she betrays and leaves the team. My style has since changed, but it continues to get good reviews so I'd say it's worth a look.
That's it for the bio. Check out my fics and definitely message me!

Also, here are some other Titans stories that are definitely worth reading (in no particular order):
"Dangerous Mind" by Exiled-Knight: An original concept in which the Titans' universe is actually the hallucination of one mentally-ill Garfield Logan. The other Titans are all manifestations of those involved in his care (i.e. Dr. Grayson, lab tech Victor Stone, etc.). Things come together quite well and it invokes many strong emotions before its conclusion.
"Titans Together" by EmeraldsAndDaggers: A year after the Brotherhood of Evil, the Titans finally come home only to find themselves facing a villain more vicious and purposeful than any before. There is a focus on Raven and Beastboy, and whether strong bonds can snap back after being pulled so thin. Emeralds also excels at invoking emotions by manipulating the timeline.
"Love in Shades of Green and Gray" by LamontCranston1066: A true epic that develops and grows Raven's character while she attempts to acquire a fuller life after defeating Trigon. It starts right where the show leaves off, and follows the demoness for years as she--at the age of sixteen--begins to face the challenges of growing up and forging new relationships.
"Fang" by Rainbrain: A very short story about a single, invigorating moment between Beastboy and Raven. The entire 'plot' spans just a few seconds, and the combination of perfect pacing and great images really make the reader feel as if s/he is right there with the characters.
"Birds of a Feather" by TheForceIsStrongWithThisOne: Pretty much the opposite of Cloudshaper, Rainbrain, and myself, Force excels in creative, engaging, and well-paced plot lines. He has several excellent (and lengthy) stories that are all worth reading, but I chose to recommend this one for its balance of fun, drama, and character interactions. The characters of Young Justice find themselves in the Titans' world.
"Honest Nervous Lovers" by Sir Alwick: To say this is 'simply a lemon' is to ignore its deep insights into Beastboy's and Raven's relationship. The sex is a device to explore the character pairing, and not the other way around. It's very human, both of the characters are remarkably true to their in-show personalities, and the story feels more like an interaction than intercourse.
