in the beast's heart

I got salty, so this happened.

He woke up in a panic, the landscape of dreams still fresh in his eyes.

Beast Boy should have been used to it by now – his girlfriend’s wacked out, all-consuming nightmares. Yet, he jolted up in their bed regardless, kicking up the blankets and punching the air like he was ready to fight Slade himself.

“Where’s the fire? Who died?! Is Darkseid attacking the tower?! Batman? I got it, I got it covered!” he exclaimed, still somewhat in a sleeping stupor.

By the time he was able to discern that he was in his bed, with no immediate danger, Beast Boy’s heart was still recuperating from the frenzied gallop induced by adrenaline.

He glanced over to find Raven sitting up in bed beside him, watching him with a troubling look.

Garfield rubbed at the remaining sleep in his eyes, and tried again to discern the current expression on his girlfriend’s lovely face.

“Uh…no fire, I take it?” he joked, slightly embarrassed by his earlier outburst.

Raven continued to give him the same apprehensive, offended look she’d fixed him with since he’d awoken.

Beast Boy’s uneasy smile fell. “Rae? You okay? Was it another nightmare?”

He reached out to touch her, only to notice the empath flinch uncharacteristically from his graze.

Something in his heart tore. He withdrew like a wounded animal. “Raven…?”

Her gaze dropped to her lap, and guilt changed her features into something new. She appeared as uncomfortable in her skin as she had when the mark of Scath had appeared. “It was just a dream…,” she murmured, but it came out sounding like an explanation for her own ears rather than his. “A stupid, stupid dream…”

Raven hugged her bare arms despite it being obnoxiously warm in their bedroom, her porcelain skin prickling to life with goosebumps.

“…Did you want to talk about it?” he spoke softly, treading slowly with his words.

“No! I-I can’t…,” Raven replied, her cheeks burning.

Yet again, Garfield’s heart felt like it had been swallowed whole by his own stomach. There usually wasn’t anything Raven couldn’t tell him, not these days, anyways.

How serious was it when she didn’t even want him touching her?

“I know how vivid your dreams can be, Rave. I know that sometimes, they’re even a lot like premonitions-”

Her eyes widened, and she spun her head in his direction. Somewhat paler than normal, she squeaked, “You’re going to cheat on me?!

Beast Boy sputtered, opening and closing his mouth a few times in disbelief. “I’m gonna what now?!”

Raven bit down on her bottom lip, quickly averting her gaze when she’d realized what she’d spoken aloud.

“Hold the phone – did-did you just say that I cheated on you?!”

Raven silently picked at the thin fabric of the sheet still covering her legs.

“You can’t be serious, Rae. You can’t actually believe that I’d ever – I mean, have you met me?!”

“It was just a dumb dream, Gar, let it go,” she whispered, glaring down into her lap.

“Let it go?!” he scoffed. “How can I? My own girlfriend thinks that I’d do something so incredibly despicable! Like Rita raised some kind of scoundrel!” he seethed through gritted teeth, growing irritable.

Not waiting a moment longer, Garfield then grabbed both of Raven’s hands into his own, taking her off guard. He stared into her eyes, intense enough that the empath blushed and had to look away.

“Do you trust me, Raven?”

She took in a deep breath. Nodding her head once, the response coming almost naturally. She couldn’t have lied even if she tried.

His eyes softened. “Then you know, I’d never, ever do anything like that. Not to you, or anyone else. I’ve never done it in the past, and I sure as hell don’t intend to now.”

The way he spoke, it was like a vow; a promise he was hellbent on keeping.

“Your dream version of me sucks by the way. He’s completely out of character, and I think you ought to fire that imagination of yours and get a better one,” he joked then, lightening the mood.

His grip weakened, but he didn’t let go of her hands.

Raven’s eyes watered; the overwhelming amount of sincerity she could pick off the changeling was leaving her feeling ridiculous, and with every moment that passed, the more her dream seemed completely unfair to Garfield’s character.

“Rae, I love you. Only you. I don’t want anyone else.” He shook his head, a small smile playing on his lips as his heartfelt words brought down the icy barrier she’d put up around her. Garfield regarded her like a blind man seeing the moon for the very first time.

She kissed him then. Grabbed his face and brought his mouth to hers in a crushing embrace, her eyes squeezing shut from the raw emotion she was experiencing. He easily melted into her touch, and pulled her down on top of him.

Raven had never been too good with words, he knew that. She preferred to show her love to him in other ways. So they stayed under the covers that morning, where Garfield proved over and over and over again exactly why he’d never even think about cheating on the one woman he was so hopelessly and irrevocably in love with…

I think I got my point across. :)

light in your eyes, love in your heart
the wonders of the world keep you up at night
all you know of pain is from skinned knees and a broken heart
freedom is not just a concept, it is a living breathing beast

tears in your eyes, hate in your heart
the skeletons in your closet keep you up at night
life is bleak, a gray existence carved out of a world that does not care
hope tastes bitter on your tongue, but you cannot wash it away

Evermore is the most gorgeous song that rips your heart out and makes you feel all the FEELS!!

- Josh Groban’s version is absolutely wonderful 

- I literally can’t comprehend how he stole an angels voice and made it even better 

- You can really appreciate the depth and strength of his voice like damn 

- I get Phantom of the Opera vibes and can totally see the song in both 

- Thank you my enchanting siren 


- This one literally makes me clench my heart in pain 

- At the end of the song I’m on the verge of tears 

- You can truly feel how much she has affected him and he can never let her go inside his heart 

- But he does because he is selfless as fuck and wants her happiness before anyone’s 

- It just has so much emotion especially the last lyrics like I’m bawling just writing this 

- Forever in love with you my Beauty 


I was the one who had it all
I was the master of my fate
I never needed anybody in my life
I learned the truth too late

I’ll never shake away the pain
I close my eyes but she’s still there
I let her steal into my melancholy heart
It’s more than I can bear

Now I know she’ll never leave me
Even as she runs away
She will still torment me, calm me, hurt me
Move me, come what may

Wasting in my lonely tower
Waiting by an open door
I’ll fool myself she’ll walk right in
And be with me for evermore

I rage against the trials of love
I curse the fading of the light
Though she’s already flown so far beyond my reach
She’s never out of sight

Now I know she’ll never leave me
Even as she fades from view
She will still inpire me, be a part of
Everything I do

Wasting in my lonely tower
Waiting by an open door
I’ll fool myself she’ll walk right in

And as the long, long nights begin
I’ll think of all that might have been
Waiting here for evermore!
