The Quote

Raven: You said you could handle it.
Starfire: You promised.


Raben Project


When Robin starts to loose control, Raven is not angry. She is not upset, or worried or scared or any other of the myriad emotions that the rest of the Titans are feeling.

She cannot be surprised either: she should have realised it was inevitable, especially when she can see that tenuous balance between dedication and obsession that Robin is clinging to.

Even so, when Raven pulls Robin away from the unlucky bystander he currently has against the wall, she is not doing it at the urging of her team mates. She does not do so because it is her duty as a Titan; nor because she is the one most capable of completely immobilising him, though any of these reasons would have been enough.

When she reaches out her powers towards him, she does not think of any of this. Instead, Raven is recalling a time when she had been on the brink of atrocity herself, and someone had reached out to her.

But when her powers do grasp Robin, the strength of the emotions around him are fed directly into her, and Raven remembers instead the other time she has had him constrained. She remembers the conviction, the intent and the single-minded focus, which whisped through her. And whatever danger, whatever repressed anger she felt then, it is nothing to the oppressive wrath she experiences now.

Robin has always had this potential, this energy and darkness in him, and he always will. But it is not the sudden awareness of it that prompts her to speak, and what she tells him is more than what she says.

It is a reminder. If Robin cannot maintain control, then Raven will do what is necessary to eradicate the danger (just as he was prepared to do for her).

What she keeps to herself is this: that until he crosses that line, she will continue to feel nothing. She will not be upset, or angry, or scared; and she will not judge him.

This is because Raven knows; she should be the last person in the world, to hold the fact that someone could be dangerous against them.

I hope you did well for your interview!

And thank you. You should definitely see this episode, though. And of course part 2. I can't believe that you haven't seen this one yet! Are you sure? It's the one where Robin becomes Slade's apprentice. One of my favourite lines is in Part 2: "I already have a father."

Something about this brought a tear to my eye. This is exactly why I love this couple. So much depth to explore. I always wanted to write a story based on this episode from Raven's point of view, but every time I have sat in front of my text document no words would come. Its quite sad.

Wow, really? I've never managed that before.

If you ever write that story I would love to read it! Other good episodes to consider are the Aftershock Parts 1 and 2. I get writer's block like that all the time. Right now I am working on a Batman piece and mostly I just stare at the blank screen. It's hard work.
