trigons_child: (Hiding face)
As Fandom shifted back to normal, Raven had been preparing herself to leave the island and find her father's realm and join him, as had been written in her destiny. Umbridge and her spells had just delayed it, but she knew her path.

Then she was herself again, and the girl she was was suddenly flooded with the memories of the monster she'd been. Tormenting people, toying with their emotions, torturing her friends, people she loved, taking so much pleasure in their suffering. Murdering a girl she didn't even know...and killing Sookie.

"That is not what I am!" she screamed, staggering from the horror of it all. "That is not who I am!"

She started to run, not even knowing where she was going until she teleported herself to the top of Selkie Peak, as far as she could get from people without actually leaving the island, though that instinct was strong as well. She had no idea what to do now. She just knew she couldn't face anyone.


[ooc: open, but emo girl is waaaaaaaaaaaay emo.]

Raven thought she didn't have any guests at graduation (though she had hoped a little that her mother would appear). It was a relief, since everyone else related to her tended to be evil, and since her dream about her brothers and her brush with her father, she'd felt especially wary.

After the ceremony, she'd wandered away to town and the park, seeking a relief from the strong emotions around her. The Pride was delicious, too much so, and she needed a break from it as well as all the anxieties about the future and happiness and love from visitors. That last she may have been a tiny bit envious of as well.

It felt good to relax, both her shields and herself, and she looked up at the night sky, wishing the clouds weren't in the way so she could see the stars.

The moment of peace wasn't going to last. )
trigons_child: (Meditating)
Not having a roommate meant Raven had plenty of room. She was taking advantage of that now, laying out a circle of candles and sweet-smelling incense (frangipani was her favorite) on the floor. It was a daily ritual, and she meant to relax herself and still her mind before watching Rumor Gal tonight. Though, on second thought, since she didn't approve of one of the current plotlines, meditating after might have been a better idea because she'd be irrationally irritated, no doubt.

At least she admitted it was entirely irrational to care about the love lives of fictional characters?

She settled cross-legged in the middle of the circle and closed her eyes. )

[For one at first, though if anyone wants to hear the commotion and react after, feel free. :) ]
trigons_child: (Looking over shoulder)
After they'd walked from the library to the Boards, Raven let Jono do any last minute cleaning he wanted to do, then shooed him out of the kitchen so she could cook. She'd decided to keep it fairly simple to reduce the chances of messing something up. So Lemon Garlic Spaghetti with warm crusty bread (she didn't make that from scratch, please) on the side. She'd even brought a sweet white wine to go with it, nothing too strong, though.

"I hope you like it," she said, pleased with how it had turned out. She set a plate on the table in front of him and then settled in her own seat. Hopefully this would distract him, if only for a little while, from having to leave the island tomorrow.
trigons_child: (AU: XMFC Raven 2)
The first thing Raven did upon waking in a strange room was check the door. It wasn't locked, and led into an unfamiliar hallway, but at least she wasn't entirely trapped. She didn't know how she'd ended up here, but she was determined to find out.

A search of the room revealed several strange things (and a startling lack of clothing options -- the closet contained little more than variations on black dresses, black skirts, and black shirts). She had no idea what the laptop could possibly be, but fiddling with the small, flat, black rectangle with the glass screen revealed a button that made its face light up with the date and time, as well as a puzzle piece with a lock upon it. She touched the image and it moved, so she slid it into the place it seemed to belong. This made the object show her many more options, including "camera," "mail," "phone," and "messaging."

Curious, she touched the messaging icon. Now she could see names and words appear. The last seemed be be from someone named "Kennedy" (not the president, however, since the picture was of a girl), and included the words "God, Raven!" So whomever owned this was named Raven as well?

She fiddled with the object for awhile longer, amazed by the technology, though not understanding most of it. What was this "Amazon Kindle"? "Google Sky"? She figured out how to make the screen change by swiping her finger across it and discovered pictures on the screen as well, all of people she didn't recognize. There was one dark-haired girl, however, that she was beginning to suspect was this other Raven, since she was generally wearing all black.

Deciding to go exploring, she shifted out of her true appearance before moving out into the hall. She wasn't going to endanger herself, not knowing where she was or how she got there or where Erik was.


[Raven is Raven from X-Men: First Class because how could I not?]
trigons_child: (Comic Scan: Confused)
Raven teleported into her room with fwhomp of displaced air. She looked decidedly thinner than she had when she'd left, since food hadn't exactly been plentiful in Azarath's ruins, and she was looking forward to actually sleeping that night on a real bed.

She hung up her cloak, frowning at the tears in it -- she'd have to mend those -- then turned and spotted the doll sitting on that very bed she wanted to drop herself on to. For a moment she thought someone had come into her room and left a gift, a joke perhaps, a doll the opposite of herself, but there was just something about its white-eyed stare that made her uncomfortable. Still, she didn't want to be rude and simply throw it out, so she gingerly picked it up and placed it on the empty second bed in the room.

And then grabbed her cloak again and threw it over it because creepy.

When she'd settled on her bed and picked up her phone to check for any messages, she glanced up to see the doll was back on her bed, silently staring. She didn't jump or shriek despite being startled, but cautiously bent down towards it. "Hello?" she said. "I apologize for moving you and placing my cloak over you. I thought you were merely a doll. Are you a student? Have you been assigned to be my new roommate?" Hey, it was Fandom, stranger things had happened.

The doll offered no answer and just continued to stare unblinking. "I am Raven," Raven said, still puzzling over this. "This is my bed, but if you have some preference for this side of the room I would not be adverse to switching." Still no answer, other than the shiver the doll was sending down her spine.

After a moment she got up and moved away, though the doll's eyes seemed to follow her. She couldn't sense true life, but it was animate. Perhaps she'd go down to the office for answers soon, but for the moment she was keeping a wary eye on the doll. And cracking open the door for a quick escape if necessary.


[Le post and le door are le open. Still not 100% but I desperately need a distraction from the horror that is my job at the moment. Fucking flowers.]

Raven had made a quick trip into town to buy food, mostly hardier fruits and vegetables like apples, since she wasn't sure how long she would be gone and what she'd be able to salvage or preserve in Azarath. She filled a basket with food and bottles of water, enough to last her for some time. It was heavy, but one of the benefits of teleporting was that some extra weight mattered little.

She'd slept poorly the night before, and shielding out all the craziness that she'd eventually picked up on hadn't helped. Fortunately things seemed back to normal in the morning, aside from the usual residual embarrassment, though that gave her all the more reason to take some time away.

She left a few messages to let people know she was going, then returned to folding some blankets to take with her on her trip as she tried to make certain she wasn't forgetting anything she might need.


[Mostly establishy, but open if you want to catch her before she goes.]

Raven wasn't so sure teleporting to Azarath -- or teleporting at all -- was a good idea, but she had go. She made a brief stop in her Gotham first, just to assure herself the world of her mother was still there. She didn't have the faintest idea how to find Arella now, but at least the city was still standing. For now.

Then she stepped into the netherverse to take herself to the place of her birth. She hadn't returned there since its destruction at the hands of her father's demons, something she had stood and overseen, relishing in the carnage, even the pain and injuries of her friends as they tried to save Azarath and its people. Going back had crossed her mind from time to time, to...what? Pay her respects? Beg for forgiveness? But she never found the courage to go, until today.

Charred bones littered the marble streets, stained reddish-brown with dried blood, and the once magnificent golden towers were crumpled and fallen. "I am sorry for my part in this," Raven whispered as she walked the paths of her childhood. Juris had been right. She had brought doom to Azarath. But Azar had known, and in the end, her people accepted the sacrifice of their lives to stop Trigon. They'd welcomed it.

That didn't make her feel any better about it. The guilt she carried came surging back and she prayed, at least, that their souls were at peace.

The Great Library, she found to her dismay, had collapsed. If there were any books within that might contain any knowledge that would be helpful against this threat to the multiverse, it would take too long to dig through the rubble. There would be no help there.

She shivered, drawing her cloak more tightly around her shoulders as she looked up into the dark skies above. Planets hung impossibly close, galaxies spun, nebula glowed colorfully. But in the distance, the sky was empty. No stars, no swirls of color, just...blackness.

Raven teleported closer, wincing a little as she could practically hear Jono, Karla, and Anakin admonishing her for being unwise. But she had to see. She stood on one of the stepping stones that dotted the netherverse, watching as the blackness spread across the sky, swallowing everything in its path, consuming the netherverse and heading straight for Azarath.

"No," she whispered, for a moment crazily wondering if she could somehow teleport her entire home away from the encroaching darkness. But it was too big; her powers had their limits. She could only watch and scream as the darkness swallowed the ruins of her home. And still it crept onward, heading right toward her.

She willed herself back to Fandom before it could get to her, collapsing in her room as her legs gave out from a combination of weakness and grief and fear. Nothing lived in Azarath anymore, but it was all she had of her home, and now it was gone. And if all the netherverse was consumed, what would that mean for her?

She curled into a ball on the floor and started to cry, no longer able to hold back the stress and sorrow.

When the auditions seemed to be winding down, Raven went to Il Pollo to fetch some Italian take out. She dropped off Troy's portion with him, then headed upstairs with her and Jono's food to wait. She happily passed the time playing with Joni.

She hadn't brought his belongings yet; she was just going to just teleport back to her room to get it all when she was ready to surprise him. Of course she had no idea someone had spoiled the surprise, KARLA.

Raven hadn't been feeling well for the past few days, which was extremely unusual for her. She'd even missed classes that week so she could stay to her room and rest, trying to figure out why she was so tired. Her emotions had been running very high, she reasoned, so that could very well be the source of feeling drained.

Doing something productive would help, she hoped. And there was definitely something she'd been wanting to do since Jono's return to Fandom. She didn't want to go alone, so she called Karla and asked her to come by her room so she could ask her for her help.

Hopefully said help wouldn't result in a fight. She'd met Karla, after all.


[For one, la, though if anyone else wants to drop by, it's before Karla's visit. Thread #2 is NFB for distance.]

Raven had decided not to go to the Halloween party since she wasn't in a very festive mood. She was too concerned about what had happened to Jono and how she could help him, and at the same time worried about being too smothering. She knew she had a tendency to be pushy, yet she didn't want to further injure his pride.

She made a few handwavey calls, to Karla and people she knew were good friends with Jono, asking them to come by her room when they had the chance. Then she sat down on her bed, back against the wall, snuggling with Joni and trying to figure out what best to do.


[ooc: Post and door are open, but the flowers may make me slow from time to time, la. If you think you got a phone call you probably did. :) Details of conversations are NFB BITE ME SHANIE.]

Raven had spent several days in the form of her namesake, mostly keeping out of Joni's reach (the one time she'd let her guard down had resulted in a pounce attack and feathers flying about the room) and munching on the berries and nuts Jono thoughtfully provided (though she had the strangest craving for roadkill, which she was not going to think too hard about later). But she was restless due to being confined inside. Flapping about the room just wasn't enough to really stretch her wings.

So she was going to take it out on Jono by constantly getting her beak and wings into whatever he was doing. Caw! Pay attention to her!
