Hey, I'm SSJ and I've been on this site for a damned long time...
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. 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, and I prefer to do this in one- and two-shots rather than longer works. A Martian Abandon is probably my flag ship story, exploring what makes Raven tick and watching as she is forced to confront an emotional challenge. No Promises and At a Quiet Hour are some shorter stories in a similar vein. The more recent works are derived from various prompts and Secret Santa-type events, which are a ton of fun!
Note that The Art and Dance of Reconciliation was written wayyy back when I was first learning the ropes of fanfiction. The first half has been rewritten, some chapters from scratch, but... well, many authors cringe when reading their first works. It looks at how Terra and Beastboy each might react to their separation after her betrayal and departure from 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!

I do keep my favorites list fairly exclusive. But for the creme of the crop, here are some of the very best fanfics I can recommend: The Crime of Passion by Sir Alwick - Action, romance, wit, suspense, and an entire galaxy to explore... this one's got the whole package and it's masterfully written. (RobStar, BBRae) Deadpan Love by Gwaihir10 - Probably the most realistic and believable way in which Beastboy and Raven would get together. A House Divided by TheForceIsStrongWithThisOne - A plot that never ceases to grow more expansive and complex, yet always feels exactly like a Titans fic should. (BBRae) Love in Shades of Green and Gray by LamontCranston1066 - The unparalleled ultimate in character development for Raven, also with *multiple* diverse story arcs and some impressive research. Note that the writing improves significantly as the story progresses. (BBRae) Phrases by Xaphrin - A collection of short one-shots with some absolutely fantastic character exploration. She's still updating, but out of the first 10, I highly recommend chapters 2 and 7. Quality Time by BlueTitan - An in-depth look at Beastboy and Raven becoming the closest of friends, and possibly something more. With truly masterful pacing, this fic takes a mature approach yet always feels fun (sometimes hilarious) and lighthearted. Titans Together by EmeraldsAndDaggers - A fantastically engaging story that jumps around its timeline to deliver some very emotional scenes. Also creates one of the most bad-ass villains in the TT fandom. (BBRae, RobStar) Transition by SevenWonders - This fic has some of the most organic and moving character interactions I've ever read, which are evident right from very first chapter. Incomplete and stalled, but I highly encourage you to look past that. (BBRae) Where I Land by WatchTheQueenConquer - A collection of one-shots based on a individual emotions (*not* a Raven-doppelganger fic!) -- just some well-written character interactions, similar to "Phrases" above. Kryalla Orchid's entire E'ara series - Get ready to be completely immersed in Kry's vast world of RobStar, BBRae, Tamaranian culture, and multiple expansive, interdependent plots. The series is comprised of three long stories and a handful of one-shots, and most veteran Titans fans will agree that it's required Titans reading! Call it a rite of passage that's actually a ton of fun.
