Author has written 6 stories for Teen Titans.
Hello, you can call me Jambey. I've always loved reading and reviewing all kinds of Fanfics, but now it looks like I finally worked up the nerve to try and write some myself. If I suck too badly, tell me gently, cos this is almost like therapy to me. Hehehe, anyway, I hope you like what I cook up! (please try not to be too frightened, my mind's a roller coaster.)
A/N: Currently finished revising each chapter of It Hurts Too Much, correcting old mistakes and immersing myself in the work again. I will now begin to write the story's end.
It Hurts Too Much
Somehow Terra has freed herself from her stone prison, but not everyone is happy about it, surprisingly, Terra least of all.
"Fear is the one emotion everyone tries to hide" An unseen scene from the episode "Can I keep him?".
Starfire confronts Raven after the events of "How Long is Forever?". Can Starfire convince Raven she is never alone?
Raven feels the combined painful lash of expectations and indifference from her teammates, and decides to let her feelings out on paper.
Beast Boy the Torturer
Beast Boy can't stand the fact that Raven never laughs at his jokes. Will he go to extreme measures to finally "get Raven to smile"?
Takes place after the End 3. Though Raven is now safe and happy, another Titan is not so joyful. (I have sold my soul to the devil)
Likes: Chocolate, books, japanese cartoons, Charlie's Angels, puppies, my lucky purple socks, tea, angels, Jamaican accents, sunsets, all kinds of junkfood, tacos, cotton candy, cookie dough, shawarmas, brownies, cheesefries, any kind of fries basically, Jamaican patties, nachos, fudge (sooo good), Eddy's double fudge brownie ice cream, waffles (ok, enough food), reading, playing videogames, listening to weird music, watching movies I really like, wearing jeans and sneakers, using mismatched socks, reading Poe and reciting The Raven, learning (stuff that matters, unlike grammar), etc. (not to mention reading fanfiction, DUH!). Oh, and vacations. My Billabong hoodie! It totally rocks! Candy cigarrettes. My new (months old) black track pants, and Season 1 of Charlie's Angels on DVD at half price!! Cleaning my room (weird I know). Opera and making onigiri.
Dislikes: People who don't take me seriously, broccoli, my evil English teacher, not understanding something, black beans, prejudiced people, feeling insignificant or self pity, when I start procrastinating shamelessly, when people assume I always get good grades and put me down when I don't, when people put too much pressure on me because I suck at something they don't, feeling alienated, people who criticize without offering opinions for improvement. Oh, and this super annoying girl in my class whom I can't stand to even look at. Hypocrisy drips from her pores, and she sucks up to everyone. Not to mention my unpleasant history teacher who told school officials about my socks (colored socks aren't allowed in my school) and made me change them in the lineup. Not knowing where I'm going. Mangos.
