After storming out on Dinah and Momoko the night before, Raven had retreated to the netherverse, but she found little solace there from the chaos of her emotions. It wasn't like it had been with her father trying to influence her. That she had known was wrong, and she'd fought it as hard as she could. This was more subtle and insidious, as Eric preyed on her own desire for affection and acceptance.

She knew Dinah and Momoko would never hurt her. But neither would Eric. He couldn't be fooling her empathy, could he? Desperate for answers -- and comfort -- she went directly to Eric's apartment once she emerged from the netherverse.

[For those who know who they are. Warning: extremely dubious consent issues. Also imminent but well-deserved violence.]

Eric was surprised to see Raven when he opened the door. "Rave, what are you doing here?" he said. "You know you're always welcome, but I told you to call before you ever came over."

In case he had to quickly dispose of a body.

Eric reached out to take Raven's arm and draw her into the apartment. "That sucks, babe," he said. For them. "Want to talk about it?" He guided her toward the couch.

"Maybe they're just jealous or something," Eric said, sitting down beside her and putting an arm around her shoulders. "You know I love you. Don't you trust me?"

Eric stood up, not bothering to hide his frustration. "You don't act like it," he said, turning away from her. "Without trust, there's nothing. And it looks to me like we've got nothing."

"I just understand this," Eric said, turning around and grabbing hold of her hands. "Either you start trustin' me, or you and I are done." He knew exactly what he was saying and what affect it would have on her, but he hid his smirk.

Eric grinned. "'Bout freakin' time," he said, pulling Raven against him. He scooped her up into his arms and carried her toward the bedroom. "Been dreamin' about this, babe. Last thing every night, first thing every morning. No more kid stuff."

He set her down on the bed, removed his shirt, then leaned over her to kiss her.

"What the hell did you do?" Eric snarled, pushing himself up from the floor.

They were glowing yellow and green now as he lost a little more of his ties to humanity. "Happening? Nothing's happening," he said. "Just you and me if you give yourself the chance."

Dammit, he needed her soul. He wasn't going to lose his chance now.

The knocking on the door was more of a pounding, because Blossom was not really in the mood to say please.

And apparently she wasn't in the mood to wait for a response either, since the door went flying open a mere second or six after her 'knock'.

"Whoever you are, you've just made a big mistake," Eric said, spinning around to face Blossom.

Which was when Dinah arrived through the broken door. "Damnit, Blossom, what if he wasn't home? And there's other people in the building--" She stopped. "Raven?"

"Name's Blossom. I'm a hero." That was mostly in response to Dinah, sorry.

"And you're the one making mistakes here." Blossom had her yo-yo out and on it's way to wrap around Eric even before she saw the totally evil glowing eyes and teeth. "Raven, get away!"

A lamp soared across the room to block Blossom's yo-yo. Eric clenched his fist, and more electronics from all about the apartment began to glow green and rise into the air. The TV, stereo, lamps, even the blender and toaster came flying in from the kitchen. "I need your soul, kid," he said, not taking his eyes off Blossom and Dinah. "Need it or else I'm gonna go all the way into machine. And I can't do that, babe."

He flung the electronics toward Dinah and Blossom.

"Oh holy f--" Dinah dove out of the way, rolling up to slam at the incoming electronics with her telekinesis. "Raven! He's the one that killed those girls! We found evidence!"

And to Eric, "S.T.A.R. Labs really screwed up with you, didn't they, Eric?"

Blossom took to the air, dodging and sending a few lightly charged hairbows after the appliances heading towards her. The explosions were minor, and some spinning of her yo-yo sent the pieces flying away before she sent it after Eric again. This time she aimed for his head, hoping to knock him out.

"You're not getting anyone's soul. That's what we're here to stop!"

Eric grunted as Blossom's yo-yo smacked him in the face, then wiped the blood away and laughed. "Your friends are trying to save you, but they can't," he said. "I'm part computer, and I control machines. I can control anything electronic. I'll kill them both. Then there's nothing between me and your soul."

"You're severely delusional. We're not Amy. There's three of us. You got the drop on her -- I hope she left some scars -- but we know what you are."

Dinah grabbed one of the floor lamps he'd thrown and threw it at him, putting an extra little spin on it, trying frantically to think of how to disable him. Maybe they could wear him down- maybe if he needed Raven's soul he was getting weaker? There was always the Canary Cry, but that might bring the building down on top of them. Damnit.

Blossom was not happy with how easily he had shrugged off her blow. "Only part computer? Who are you kidding? Because you're obviously not human, killing for no reason."

She flew towards him, following the path of the lamp Dinah had thrown, so she could get a punch in. Gauge his strength for her next attack.

Eric threw up his arm to ward off the lamp Dinah threw, but hissed in pain when it impacted. At the same time he called the microwave from the kitchen and tried to put that in Blossom's path. At the same time, he tried to snack some electrical cords around Dinah.

"Don't listen to them, babe," Eric said. He had to keep his focus on Blossom and Dinah now, which kept him from sending the little electric bursts at her brain to confuse her thoughts. "You know I love you. I need you. And you're gonna give me what I want, aren't you?"

"Amy had freezing powers--" WHOMP. Damnit, those cords were tricky. Dinah swore and squirmed, kicking at the cords, then yanking on them with both hands to get free. "Eric, you creeper, give it up! People know!" She stopped herself from stating the cliche' You're not going to get away with this and then threw a wild blast of unaimed TK at his feet, hoping to trip him, bring him down.

Blossom smashed through the microwave, but it definitely lessened her speed and her punch was a bit weaker for it. She did manage to connect though and pulled back and flew up and away as soon as she did.

"He's metal!" She understood, now, why their attacks seemed so ineffective.

Even as her Soul-Self wrapped around Eric, he made one more desperate plea. "Hon, I love you. Don't listen to those lies, you know me. You know my emotions. I'm tellin' the truth. Stop them. Save me, Raven. Save me!"

"Could you just stop? Jeez, you're unbelievable." Dinah got to her feet, breathing hard, picking up a stray bit of computer console to throw at him if Raven's Soul Self didn't do the trick.

She didn't think it would be needed, though.

"Squad cars incoming," Barbara said over her comms. "You have six minutes to get out of there before you have to make explanations to the NGPD."

"Police on their way," Dinah reported.

Blossom recovered faster than she expected she would, after witnessing that. She moved to what was left of Eric and quickly gagged him. "No. You don't get to do that. You've hurt her enough; she doesn't need that to be the last memory she has of you."

She turned back to Raven. "He was beyond saving before he ever heard your name. You know that, right?"

"Or not. This case is going to be one for the 'unsolved' files." Dinah didn't look down at Eric, but stepped lightly over the scattered electronic chaos, watching Raven's face, hurting for her. Not knowing what to say.

"I'm glad you're ..." Not okay, no. But alive. "In one piece." She looped an arm through Raven's. "Let's get out of here."
