Alright, let's get started! I don't own any of the characters or anything.

And now, the Teen Titans fanfiction story

Downwrite Mean (part 2)

Beast Boy and Cyborg had no choice but to just go to bed and figure out what to do about the situation tomorrow. It was late, and honestly they were tired. Beast Boy knew this task to cheer her up was on him, and he didn't have the energy to do it. He would have to practically fight her to get her to talk to him and right now he just couldn't.

The next morning he woke up. He went to the bathroom, brushed his teeth, and took a shower. After he put on his clothes, he headed to the common room for breakfast. Maybe if he got really lucky, Raven would be back to normal by now. But that was a big "if".

He spotted Cyborg making a big pot of oatmeal. Nice, now he could eat with the rest of the team. Since there was no meat in it, he could eat it.

"Morning, Beast Boy. You sleep okay?" Robin asked. That was when he noticed the leader already sitting at the table, along with Starfire.

"Sure did. How about you guys?" Beast Boy responded.

"Same here, actually." Robin replied.

"My slumber was most pleasant, indeed." Starfire exclaimed.

"I guess I slept okay. I mean I had just got taken out by that -boss- on that -video game- right before bed." Cyborg said. Beast Boy could tell by the way he said it that he was not referring to a video game, but rather the cruel song they had discovered.

"Friend Raven, how was your sleep?" Starfire asked politely. It was then that Beast Boy noticed the dark Titan on the corner of the couch reading a book.

"Fine." Raven's reply was simple and seemingly uncaring. Beast Boy thought maybe she was okay and decided to test the waters.

"Hey Rae, are you-"

"Not now, Beast Boy." Raven said quickly.

During breakfast, Beast Boy noticed Raven hardly eat any of it. She was so distracted. Apparently she was not over the whole song thing. After they finished eating, he tried again. By then, Cyborg was working on his T-Car and Starfire had went to the mall, by herself because Raven declined to go with her.

"Raven, look. I'm sorry about-" But she cut him off.

"I already told you, Beast Boy, it wasn't your fault. Don't feel bad. I just need some time to myself, okay?" With that, she quickly disappeared to her room. Beast Boy started to go after her when he heard a voice stop him.

"Beast Boy wait!" It was Robin. He had heard the brief exchange between the two. When Beast Boy stopped and turned around, the leader continued.

"What exactly happened?"

"Well, it's kind of a long story..." Beast Boy said, scratching the back of his neck nervously.

"We've got time." Robin countered. Beast Boy knew that Robin considered him and Raven close friends, and as such, he cared about them. But he was worried that Robin would blame him for it and that really wasn't a position he was looking to get into. Still, it didn't seem he could avoid telling him what happened.

"Okay, well, me and Cyborg were on this website that lets you pay people money to write any song you want, and I was going to have them make one about her. You know, to show her how I feel. But then we found this one song about her was already there, so we listened to it. But the whole song just basically trashed her! And somehow, she turned up in the garage and she heard the whole thing. I had no idea she was there. Now she's upset and I don't know what to do."

"You wouldn't think it, but Raven sneaks around sometimes to see what people say about her when she's not around." Robin told him.

Robin had already known about Beast Boy's crush on Raven. One of the perks of being a detective. One day Beast Boy started asking Robin about talking to a girl and the leader pretty much blurted out that he knew Beast Boy was talking about Raven.

"I want to see this website." Robin said, walking over to the computer they had in the common room. Beast Boy followed him.

Beast Boy told him the name of the site, and Robin went to it. When he navigated to the song, he was smart enough to pull out headphones and listen to it, so as not to play it aloud in case Raven was somehow nearby and it would upset her again. While he was listening, Beast Boy could tell he was disgusted. It was no secret that Robin was protective of Raven. Really he was protective of everyone on his team, even Cyborg who could clearly take care of himself. When the song finished, he took the headphones out and set them down, though it was obvious he had to restrain himself from throwing them.

"What kind of sick person would request a song like this?" Robin spat. He didn't shout, but Beast Boy could tell he was angry. Unlike Beast Boy and Cyborg, Robin wasn't surprised. He knew the Titans had haters, just as they had fans.

"I know, right? And why does the guy have to have the song on the website? Like, couldn't he just give the song to the requester?" Beast Boy complained.

"Or better yet, tell the requester that writing those kinds of songs about heroes is wrong." Robin agreed. "Let's see... BigSpence2016, huh?"

"Yeah, I think that's the guy's name." Beast Boy confirmed. Robin sighed.

"Listen, Beast Boy. Just give her a little time, like a couple of hours or so, and then go talk to her. If you need me to help out, just call. She already knows you didn't do anything wrong, so she should be willing to talk things out with you. In the meantime, I'm going to try and track down this artist."

"Okay Robin, thanks. Wait, what?"

"Tomorrow, me and you are going to go find that guy and... convince him... to take that song off his website." Robin said, punching his hand with his fist like he was going to beat the artist up if they didn't take the song down.

"I'd be more than happy to." Beast Boy said. With that the two parted ways.

Cyborg came up about twenty minutes after that, having finished working on the T-Car. The two played video games for the couple of hours that Robin recommended Beast Boy give Raven. During that time, Beast Boy figured he'd try to get some advice from Cyborg about what he could say to Raven to make her feel better.

"Just let her know that it doesn't matter what those jerks think." Cyborg advised the changeling. "You know, remind her of all the good she does."

"Yeah, but how will I get her to listen to me?" Beast Boy asked.

"The key is to go with honesty rather than flattery." Cyborg said wisely.

"What do you mean?"

"Look. If someone told you everything you wanted to hear, no matter how farfetched, but then someone else told you something pleasant about yourself but it sounded more realistic, who would you believe?" Cyborg asked, finishing his explanation.

"The second, but what does that have to do with this?" Beast Boy asked, confused.

"Just don't go in there saying stuff like 'oh my god you're the best, you're perfect, you're such a good cook, etc.', you know?"

Beast Boy chuckled at that last part, but it helped get Cyborg's message across.

"I get what you're saying, Cy."

So when the time came, Beast Boy stood nervously outside of Raven's door. He started trying to rehearse some lines really quickly before talking with her, but her voice pulled him from his thoughts.

"What is it, Beast Boy? I can sense you out there."

"Can I come in?" Beast Boy's voice was timid.

There was no answer, but a moment later, her door hissed open. She motioned for him to come in and sit down.

"Listen Rae, I know you're upset about that song, but it doesn't matter what those jerks think. Because they probably don't even really know you. They're just judgmental."

"I don't know. I haven't exactly been the perfect teammate..." Raven stated, but trailed off.

"You're a great teammate! You save lives every day. And let's not even get started on the whole 'saving the world from your dad' thing. Sure, your insults get a little hurtful sometimes, but most of the time they're actually nice to hear." Raven smirked at that.

"So you like me insulting you? Because I can do it some more if you want." Beast Boy chuckled.

"I think you know that's not what I meant. It's just that those comments remind me of, well, you. You know? And I know you don't mean anything too bad by it." After a short pause he added, "Right?"

"So you just associate me with my jabs? I guess that's the same way I feel about you and your jokes." She said.

The two sat in comfortable silence for a moment. Beast Boy was allowing his more romantic feelings for her to bubble freely within him, currently forgetting about her empathy powers. When he did remember, he fought to push those feelings down, lest she find out about them too early and he scares her away.

His battle to get control of his emotions was interrupted as, once again, her voice pulled him from his thoughts.

"Does it ever happen to you?" Raven asked.


"Do people ever talk bad about you?"

"Some people do, yeah. They make fun of my green skin and fangs, and my fighting abilities. Some people. I've heard them call Starfire bad names too and mock her intelligence. They've called Robin bossy and arrogant, and said he was a jerk but didn't give any sensible reason why. They called you scary and denounced you because of your heritage. I've never actually heard anyone say anything bad about Cyborg, though. None of those people were cruel enough to have a song written about it, at least not one that I've heard. And if they know what's good for them, they won't. But yeah, some people say those things."

Raven began looking sad again.

"I thought... people loved us... we saved them..."

"Most people do, Raven. The people who said the bad stuff about us are in the minority, trust me. And like I said, they don't know us, so they have no idea what they're talking about. Starfire may not know as much about Earth as the rest of us, but she's amazingly intelligent and she learns fast. They would probably be a lot worse off if they were put onto an unfamiliar planet. I might mess up a lot in fights, but I've saved lives too. I've been told so. Plus I lead the victory against the Brotherhood of Evil. And I seriously have no idea where people are getting that stuff about Robin from. He may be driven and paranoid, especially if Slade is on his mind, but he's the most kind hearted, caring leader I could've asked for. He's gone out of his way and risked his life to protect us and other innocent people more times than I can count. And you defied your destiny and stopped your dad from taking over. So those people are full of baloney. And sure, I'd love to personally sock 'em all one, but they're not worth it. Who are they to say that stuff? The people we care about respect us, and that's good enough for me."

Raven leaned forward and gave him a hug.

"You're an amazing teammate, Beast Boy. Not just to me, but to the rest of the team, too." She whispered to him.

Beast Boy smiled, a blush adorning his cheeks. Luckily Raven was hugging him still and couldn't see. He was glad that he was able to console her, but he knew he and Robin still had to settle things with BigSpence2016 tomorrow.

That night, he made sure he got a good night's rest, so he could be prepared for the mission tomorrow.

Author's Notes- Well, that's the end of part two. Next time, we'll see Robin and Beast Boy confront the artist and see if they can get him to take the song down. Reviews are appreciated and stay tuned!
