Chapter 01: Beginning of the Nightmare
it was late at night in Jump City, USA.
most everyone were asleep...even the city's self-appointed protectors: the Titans.
well...all except ONE.
while the other Titans slept, a woman with long, Purple Hair was wide awake.
her name...was RAVEN.
and, for some reason she couldn't sleep.
mainly because her dreams were haunted by visions of the past.
back when the team was called the TEEN Titans...back when Raven was a "different person"
Raven exhaled as she sat on a stone couch in the Main Room of the tower.
her lavender eyes looked out a large window, where the full moon light shined into the dark room.
wanting the occupy herself (and, not bother anyone)
Raven opened up a laptop computer and began typing in a journal.
there was a time when she prefered a traditional Pencil and Notebook.
but, in the year "2040s", most EVERYONE used Digital Equipment (actual books were a extremely rare.)
Raven kept her eyes glued to the lit screen as she typed rapidly tapped the keys.
April 3rd, 2043
I don't usually write my journals on a computer (I am more used to writing in books)
but, technology these days is booming, and i REALLY have something that's bothering me.
maybe if i write it down...i'll feel a little better (though, i seriously doubt it.
Raven exhaled sharply.
she brushed some strands of hair from her eyes and continued typing.
it all started Thirty Years Ago, when I was Sixteen.
when I first had that dream...that changed Everything.
[Jump City, Thirty Years Ago]
Raven slept in her bed, tossing and turning.
her ruby red chakra stone flashed again and again, sweat on her head.
a dark girl with black hair and purple eyes snapped a picture from her camera at a boy with messy black hair and blue eyes.
the boy was holding a white and black jumpsuit and, was standing near a mechanical Arc-like machine.
the boy groaned as he was temporarily blinded by the camera flash.
"okay...I showed you the portal now, can we PLEASE get out of here?" began the boy
"My parents will be back any moment!"
the goth girl with the camera approached the "portal" with an unusual smile.
"Oh, COME ON, Danny...a Ghost Zone!" exclaimed the girl
she looked at "Danny" and smiled.
"you gotta check it out!"
Danny approached the inactive portal device.
"yeah...your right." said Danny, getting interested
"who knows what Awesome, Super-Cool things exist on the other side of this Portal!"
Danny immediatly started to put on the jumpsuit.
he soon zipped it up, revealing to be completly White with Black gloves, boots, neck brace and belt.
the girl walks over and removes a sticker from the suit's chest.
she then showed Danny the stick of a man's face, grinning stupidly.
"you can't go around with THAT on your chest!"
Danny nodded, he then turned and faced the opening of the portal.
he carfully walked inside it, which looked like a metal tunnel.
as he reached the end of it...he accidently pressed a button.
the portal suddnely activates, Danny's body being bombarded by Green Energy.
Danny screamed as an unnatural energy surged into his body.
his body and jumpsuit slowly changed color, almost like a "Reverse Mirror Image"
Danny's Black hair turned Snow White, his blue eyes Green.
and, his white jumpsuit turned Black (which White Gloves, Boots, Belt and Neckbrace.)
"DANNY!" exclaimed the girl, scared
the Goth Girl ran into the now active Portal and dragged Danny out.
the girl held him up, seeing that Danny was Half Awake (and, his body limp)
suddnely, Danny's body "phased" out of her hands.
she stepped back, shocked at this.
Danny soon regained consciences, holding his head and groaning.
Danny suddnely realises his voice has an echo to it.
he quickly looks into a Mirror, and saw how he changed.
he gasped, then stepped back.
then, a hoola-hoop ring of light suddenly appeared at his waist.
the ring split into two rings, traveling Up and Down.
as they traveled, Danny's jumpsuit disappeared and Danny's Civilian Clothes re-appeared.
once the rings faded...Danny was back to normal.
the Girl just stared at Danny, wide eyed and mouth gaping.
Danny was in a state of panic.
"WHAT'S HAPPENING TO ME!"
[End of Dream]
Raven suddnely opened her eyes, now fully awake.
she groaned as she sat up in her bed, holding her head.
"ohhhh...that dream again." said Raven, who yawned
Raven eyed the sunrise out her window.
she growled, then got out of bed, flew over and closed up her curtains.
(("what does it MEAN!")) thought Raven
Raven finally sat down in the middle of her room.
she sat down cross legged, closed her eyes and began to meditate.
"azarath, metrion, zinthos...
azarath, metrion, zinthos..."
Raven continued to mutter her chant, trying to keep her mind at peace.
but, it wasn't doing much good.
"azarath (Portal), metrion (Ghost Zone), zinthos (Danny.)"
Raven shot her eyes open, growling.
as she did, some objects in her room vibrated.
"why am i having these dreams...WHAT DOES IT MEAN!"
as Raven yelled, her door blew off.
and, as if on cue...Beast Boy poked his head in.
"uhhh...Raven?, you oka-"
"I'M FINE!, leave."
Raven immediatly summoned a wall of Shadow Energy over her doorway.
this blocked off the confused (and, somewhat concerned) Beast Boy.
Beast Boy sighs as he walks off.
the energy barrier soon disappeared, and Raven exhaled sharply.
she felt bad about yelling at Beast Boy (she could feel that he was concerned for her)
but, she was extremly stressed, and she didn't want to risk hurting him.
though, she feared she may have done that ANYWAY.
then, Raven's "emotions" began to speak to her from within her mind.
(("how could you!")) snapped Timid
(("he just wanted to help!"))
"i don't need any help." said Raven, silently
(("you didn't need to yell at him, either."))
"DON'T BLAME ME!, it was-"
(("me?")) said Rage
(("your the one who let me out."))
objects vibrated as Raven yelled.
she then heard "Rage" snicker.
(("you DO realise that your Anger only makes me Stronger."))
Raven grabbed her head, groaning forcefully.
(("apologyse to him!")) said Brave, Raven's courage
(("you hurt his Feelings!, you have to cheer him up!")) chirped Happy
"no, i don't.
he's Beast Boy, he'll cheer HIMSELF up."
(("and, if he DOESN'T...he'll hate you, forever.")) snarled Rage
"WHAT DO YOU CARE!, you made me yell at him!"
(("I am "Rage", I attack whoever you point me at.
and, your anger was Directed to Beast Boy at that moment: I had NO CHOICE."))
This made Raven angrier.
"oh, so it's MY FAULT!"
(("whose head do I live in?")) said Rage, sarcasticly
Raven growled, getting fed up with this Crazy Arguement.
her mind then wandered back to the Strange Dreams she had been having.
who was that this "Danny" person?
what happened to him...and, just what was this "Ghost Zone?"
[Later, in the Main Room of Titans Tower]
Beast Boy and Cyborg were sitting at a widescreen TV, playing a videogame.
bright lights and loud sounds came from the screen, and Cyborg exclaime dout loud.
OH, YEAH!, I totally whupped your butt, BB!"
Amazingly, Beast Boy didn't show any sign of being mad or upset.
Beast Boy laid the controlling down and sighed.
Cyborg eyed his Best Friend, knowing something wasn't right.
"something wrong, little buddy?"
Beast Boy sighed again.
"i dunno...it's just that, well."
Beast Boy groaned in aggravation.
"I think something's wrong with Raven.
I want to help, but she totally shuts me out!"
"hey, man...that's just how Raven is.
you know how unpredictable her powers can be."
Beast Boy crossed his arms, grumbling.
and, it just doesn't seem fair." began Beast Boy
"i mean...how LONG has it been since Raven kicked Trigon's butt!"
"about a few months I guess, why?"
"you'd think that by NOW, she'd have better control of her powers.
but, lately...it seems like she's getting WORSE, like their Harder to control."
Beast Boy narrowed his eyes, snorting.
"it just isn't fair.
I but Raven WOULD laugh at my jokes if she didn't have these problems."
"probably...she IS the only one that listens.
I sort just tune you out when you say 'em."
Beast Boy glared at his friend.
Beast Boy sighed, then stood up and walked off.
"where you going?"
"nowhere...i just need some air."
Beast Boy soon left the room.
it was then, that Starfire approached Cyborg.
"Friend Beast Boy seems to be "Dumped-in-the-Downs."
"yeah, he sure looks blue."
Starfire cocked an eyebrow.
"Blue?, but he looked as "Green" as he always is."
"I mean he's "Depressed."
"what has Pressed him?
did he get too close to your Weight Machine, again?"
"no-no-no...I mean he's SAD, Starfire."
"oh, I know that."
Cyborg grabbed his face, aggravated.
"MAY-BE you should talk to Robin about this."
Starfire pondered a bit.
"perhaps i Should.
your choice of Earth Words are quite Strange to me."
Starfire turned and walked off, leaving Cyborg alone.
Beast Boy was sitting outside Titans Tower looking at the ocean from the outer part of the small island.
his mind was DEEP in thought, mostly thinking about Raven.
"why?...why isn't she doing better?
and, WHY won't she let me help her."
(("the Bigger question is: why do you even CARE?")) said a voice
Beast Boy quickly got up and looked around.
strangely, he saw no one there...he was alone.
(("could it be that you have "feelings" for her?"))
"of course i do, SHE'S MY FRIEND!" said Beast Boy, argueing with the "voice"
(("oh, please, don't insult my intelligence...it makes me "Iritable."))
Beast Boy gulped, feeling uneasy.
he didn't know "who" this voice was...but, he was pretty sure it wasn't "Himself."
(("admit it, child...you LOVE her."))
Beast Boy froze.
he wanted to argue, but...he had to admit, the voice WAS right.
his feelings for Raven HAD gotten stronger ever since the Trigon Incident.
just then, Beast Boy's communicator beeped.
he grabbed it and activated it.
(("BEAST BOY!, we've got trouble.")) said Robin
"on my way."
Beast Boy turned and ran back to the Tower.
once he was gone, two pairs of red eyes suddenly glowed in some shadows.
the shadows came to life and materialized into a figure.
a bulky figure with red skin, white hair, four yellow eyes and horn shapes on it's head.
Trigon grinned evily, a plan already forming in his Twisted, Demonic Mind.
Trigon's eyes glowed red.
ember energy then formed around his body.
his body materalized into energy and, he soon disappeared into the shadows.
an evil laugh fading as he disappeared.
Author Note: This is based on a Story Idea that "707Cloud" from DeviantArt gave me.
and, will be a Raven-Centred story (in contrast to "The Loney Beast", a Beast Boy centered Story I have also written)
The idea in this chapter, is that the events have Already happen
and, are being written by an Adult Raven in future Jump City (sort of a reference to my "Gotham 2040" story idea)
and, YES...Raven is indeed dreaming about the event where Danny Fenton first attained his powers (see: "Memory Blank")
the idea is that her Demon Powers are giving her a Mental Link to Danny's Universe, and she's seeing his history in her dreams
my reason for doing this will make sense in later chapters.
