trigons_child: (Comic Scan: Hugging Pillow)
Tension and unease kept Raven awake in Glacia; though she managed to quell her fears that Karla or Warren would try to kill her, since she hoped in their hearts they could recognize she was not the same as her future self in this world, she was still afraid one of Karla's court might take it upon him or herself to rid their Queen of the potential threat. She stayed to her room and watched the skies outside her window, waiting for signs of dawn, heralding what she prayed was a return to Fandom, but she was so drained that she finally fell into a troubled sleep in the early hours of the morning.

While she slept, Fandom pulled her back home, and as consciousness gradually returned, she realized she was right where she'd gone to sleep Friday night, in Jono's hotel room. Her initial surge of relief to be back was quickly chased away by the memories of that awful place, and she rolled on to her side, pressing her face into a pillow to try to muffle her tears.

Snipped for preplay. )

trigons_child: (Teleport)
Raven teleported them back to Glacia, not the Keep -- she didn't relish another run-in with Jaenelle. The skies of the netherverse were tossed with storms, and once they appeared in Karla's room, the ragged shreds of Raven's soul rushed back into her body, and she dropped to her knees, spent.

Two Karlas, a Warren, a Dinah, a Raven, and an improbable child walk into a bar.... )

trigons_child: (Comic Scan: Red eyes)
Once Karla had vanished and Dinah taken Rook and run, Raven did her best to prevent her future self from pursuing them. She couldn't stop all of the minions, but she could keep the deadliest threat occupied while Dinah got Rook to safety and Karla sought out her own future self and Warren.

Their Soul-Selves still clashed overhead, neither gaining the upper hand over the other. "You can't stop me," the older Raven said as she lashed out with a jolt of pain. "No one can. I will destroy the child, and you all will be mine."

Raven versus Raven, Round One, FIGHT. )

trigons_child: (Eyes closed profile)
Raven was trying to meditate. She needed to rest her body after being afraid to sleep again the night before (Bobby's birthday present was coming in very handy these days), but after an an unsettling phone call, and then snarling back an answer, she was too on edge to relax at all. (The following phone calls really didn't help, either.)

Meditation wasn't working. Boosts to her shielding only helped for a short time before they weakened against her father's power again. Being with friends helped a great deal, but she was beginning to accept she was putting them in danger with her presence. Trigon could act against them through her -- he'd proven that last night when she'd ended up at Max's house -- and she couldn't bear to think of causing them harm.

Agitated, she began to pace. She didn't want to leave Fandom, but how could she stay now?

trigons_child: (Worried)
Raven hadn't slept at all the night before, but despite how tired she was, she decided to go out for a walk in the Preserve, hoping the peace and quiet would calm her troubled mind. And the cold might help wake her up. She didn't need as much sleep as others did, but no sleep at all plus the restlessness of the two previous nights was wearing on her.

One step she was moving beneath the trees, and the next she slipped into a dream without even realizing it. )

[Warnings for me just being mean. Dear potentially confused squirrels, all you saw was Raven walking, then stopping and just standing there with her eyes closed, then freaking out. :) ]

trigons_child: (Sleeping)
It was good to be back in Fandom and back in her own bed. Being crowded in a room at Sookie's had been like an extended slumber party, but she was happy to have her privacy again. The presents she'd received had been set lovingly atop her bureau and desk, all except Jono's bracelet. That was still around her wrist and would rarely leave it except when she bathed or slept, and sometimes not even then, since she'd drifted off to sleep last night before taking it off.

Her dreams had been undisturbed over the holiday, though that was about to change. )

[Warnings for boyfriend abuse. Mostly establishy since Xmas is over and it's time to start being mean to my girl again, but what the heck, door is close, post is open.]

trigons_child: (Brooding B&W)
Raven huddled on a rocky spire in the netherverse, head bowed as she fought for control of herself. The skies were an angry red and purple instead of black now, and lightning streaked across them. Her behavior in Special Collections the day before sickened her, as did her reaction when Jono had touched her in the library. Trigon's whispers were becoming stronger and stronger, and it was all she could do to resist the pull of his evil. She'd retreated within herself to try to find some peace and regain control before she hurt someone. It pained her that she could do nothing more to aid in finding Karla and the others, but right now she was more of a hindrance than a help.

"Why have you done this to me, Azar?" she whispered. "Surely before you perished you had to know the suffering I would endure. You had to know the changes that would befall me. I feel hate now. Azar, I feel the urge to kill! You taught me that pacifism was strength, not weakness. But you were wrong, Azar -- wrong! I feel my father's evil growing within me and I am frightened by my new thoughts. Thoughts of death! Thoughts of decay! Thoughts of power! And I am frightened by these thoughts not because I have them...but because I relish them!"

She couldn't hold back her tears anymore. "Help me, Azar," she begged. "I desperately wish to stand beside my friends at their moment of need, yet because of what I am becoming, I cannot. Give me comfort, Azar, or damn me to hell. I cannot abide what I have become!

Silence was her only answer, aside from the rumble of thunder. Or was that her father's laughter? She kept trying, however. She was going to remain here for quite some time until she felt in control of herself enough to return to Fandom.

trigons_child: (Soul-Self flying)
Raven had been feeling unsettled all day, even more so than usual. Despite the cold, she went up to the roof to meditate, releasing her Soul-Self to soar over the island. The temperature numbed her to the pain and distracted her from her inner turmoil.

When she spotted the labyrinth below she tried to fly over it, wanting to know what it was. But she suddenly found herself on the other side of the island. Confused, she tried again, and again was shunted elsewhere. There was no flying over the structure, whatever it was. It was magically protecting herself.

She thought about trying to teleport inside but discarded the idea as foolish and instead returned to her body, the bad feeling growing worse. There couldn't be anything good about mysterious structures appearing out of nowhere on the island and not allowing anyone to fly over them. She'd have to tell some adults what she'd seen. But first she stretched out with her empathy, sensing for those closest to her heart. She could feel Jono's presence, but Karla...there was nothing.

Do not panic, do not panic, she is probably off the island on a date with Warren.... Raven fumbled with cold fingers for her phone and sent a quick text to Karla. When no answering text or call came, she struggled to clamp down on the rising panic and fear. But her emotional control was already strained, and she could feel the edges of it starting to snap. Will you stand for this, Daughter? Allow someone to take what is yours? her father whispered.

"No!" she cried, both in answer to the questions and in denial to the asker. She had to keep control and find Karla. She forced the darkness back and tightened her shields, only this time it was more to keep things in than out.

[Mostly establishy, but if you want to poke the demon on the roof, feel free. ;) ]

trigons_child: (Meditating)
Without classes Monday, Raven kept to her room to study and meditate because that's how she rolled. But where she usually found peace and tranquility was instead a nightmare of horrific images of Fandom and the mainland shattered and destroyed, the people twisted and frozen in stone, silently screaming in agony. And those dearest to her lay dead at her feet, or worse yet, kneeling in servitude to her, their eyes red and empty of any hint of a soul.

And over it all, the sound of her father's laughter.

She snapped out of her trance, shaking with fear, then got up and stumbled over to her dresser to stare at her face in the mirror. She felt a surge of relief that she only had two blue eyes and that there weren't four red ones looking back at her. She had dark circles under those eyes from a lack of restful sleep lately, but that could be easily hidden with makeup. Because she was fine. Really. Things were going well, and she'd just had a bad dream. And the lingering soreness in her right side from healing Jacob and the pain in her neck from healing Sookie was just her imagination, leftover stress from Kaeleer. It would soon pass.

Because she was fine. Really.


[ooc: door is cracked, post is open. If you're sensitive to such things, it's OK to pick up on unpleasant vibes coming from the room before Raven locked it down, la. And yes, she's being an idiot. *sighs*]

trigons_child: (Comic Scan: Sad)
Raven had been struggling to hold herself together for the past few days. It had been hard for her to deal with people leaving, Dinah and Hoshi and Joan most of all. But Didi hadn't just left, she was gone, and Jono was in so much pain. She'd pushed aside her own grief to be there for him, taking her charge from Didi very seriously, watching over him and making sure he knew he was not alone. She worried though about making him feel smothered, so she was glad take time to rest and to allow Ben or someone else to make certain Jono was all right.

Meeting her new little sibling Kon at the welcome picnic had been interesting, particularly since he was from a world similar to hers and knew of a Raven who was a hero. Through and through, he had said, and after what she had been told by someone else from her future about how she was evil, it had been a great relief.

But one more newcomer had spoiled that pleasure. Zatanna. The woman who had proclaimed her evil and made the Justice League turn its back on her. The one who led them to stop the ritual that would have barred Trigon's way into this world. Whose actions led to Arella sacrificing herself to hold Trigon back. Who said Raven had enough darkness in her to break this plane.

She'd contained her anger -- just barely -- even as some small part of her struggled to accept that this Zatanna was not the same as the one she knew. But that allowed all her grief and pain to come rushing out now, everything from Arella's loss to her soul being ravaged as Fandom had been devoured by the void to Andy and his brother who seemed to hate her to Karla to people going away to Didi and Jono to Zatanna. She'd held everything in too long, and now it all came crashing down on her, and all she could do was huddle on her bed and cry.


[ooc: Mostly establishly since she's been heading for a minibreakdown for awhile now, but if you want to deal with Emo Girl, feel free to knock. ;) And thanks to Bridgey for pointing out that first tag.]
