Prepare for a SUPER long post. I feel like I need to spill the reason(s) why I love BBRae so much and why they mean so much to me. So here it goes:
To build a good relationship you need friendship and compassion. Beast Boy and Raven have the potential to be something more because when you think about it Raven does not treat Beast Boy the same as any other guy she meets. Same goes with Beast Boy. Beast Boy usually gets all googly eyed and lovey dovey with any pretty girl he comes across but with Raven he thinks her more then just “eye candy” and who he deeply cares about more than anyone else on the team.
In the episode, “Nevermore”, Raven’s happy side mentions to Beast Boy that “looks aren’t just everything” She even laughs at his jokes and pays little attention to Cyborg who was also tagging along which displays her attention was strictly on Beast Boy. And the whole misunderstanding “I thought you didn’t like me” ordeal they both thought creates a new found relationship between them that later shows a special bond.
At worst times they always help and look after one another. If they think of each other as just friends Raven would of treat him like the rest of any guy on the team and same goes with Beast Boy treating her the same as any other girl. Beast Boy will drop and go out of anyone’s way for her. He may not realize it yet but she does mean a lot to him and he cherishes that special bond he has with her.
In the episode, “The Beast Within”, even though he was furious at Raven he went at all cost to protect her and keep her safe. He was able to recognize her scent above anyone else’s on the team. And only transforming into “The Beast” to protect only her and even used it again when Raven’s life was threatened in “The End”. People may have said it before “it could have been anyone he would save” but no he didn’t react in such anger to turn into The Beast as he did with Raven. When he was mad with the others he stayed in human form and tries to control himself meaning it matters more to him when he’s in conflict with Raven then being in trouble with anyone else. But the moment he comes back to consciousness from being The Beast he knows that deep in his heart that he would never hurt Raven no matter how angry he is with her. Robin pushes him to the edge when threatening to put him in jail because of the possible thought he could of harmed Raven. Trying to remember he turns back into The Beast and fights everyone away so he could get to her. Even in his worst possible state he does not harm a single hair on her. After finding out Raven is in fact okay he goes off to find Adonis to get his revenge. Then of course at the end, Raven explains The Beast is a good thing that he has inside because if it wasn’t for The Beast she might not have been alive.
In “Spellbound”, Beast Boy was a little nosy when Raven started not to act like herself. When she was talking to Malchoir Beast Boy stood outside her door and listened and even taking as far as “being a fly on the wall”. When Raven gets her heart broken by Malchoir, Beast Boy was the only one who asks her if she was okay. Then at the end of that episode, Beast Boy tells Raven no matter how creepy she may be, he informs her she doesn’t always have to be locked up in her room and that he will always be there for her. Feeling touched by his words, she comes out of her room to give him a gentle hug which deepens their connection even more.
In “Birthmark”, Beast Boy was the only one who cared enough why Raven didn’t want to talk about that certain day. Taking it as far as logging into the Titans’ computer to discover the secret she was hiding. Finding out it was her birthday, it was Beast Boy’s idea to throw a party for her. After the whole horrific events that had happened, Raven accepts Beast Boy’s second attempt to have a birthday party for her. Beast Boy even mentions she may hate her birthday but he (along with the others) were glad that she was born.
In my eyes his power is extremely unique and one of a kind in which every animal he chooses to be in every situation has a special ability of their own. It is truly amazing how he can use all the animals powers in more ways than just one. He is someone who will never hate who he is and embraces it. And he treats Raven like someone who should be happy regardless of her struggles and he does his best to make her happy more than anyone else. Yes everyone cares about Raven but Beast Boy always went the extra mile going past her boundaries just for her sake for happiness. He wears his heart on his sleeve and is never afraid to say what he feels. Raven is the opposite. That’s why she needs someone who doesn’t lie to her and is free to express emotions. Only when she is with Beast Boy is she able to express such different kinds of emotions and Beast Boy even says so himself in the original DC comic timeline to embrace those feelings because it is what makes her human and to stop worrying about the bad and focus more on the good.
This is what makes their relationship so deep and meaningful. They are both so different but share the same feelings of pain, heart break, and happiness together. They support each other equally where it is never one sided. It’s a complete balanced relationship where they both equally rely and look up and look after each other. They are a one of a kind pairing because they are not one of those “love at first sight” stories and were able to build a relationship based on trust, understanding, and accepting of each other’s differences. They take the ‘ol saying “opposites attract” to a whole new level that is hard to ignore.
Rather you ship them or not, you can’t deny the powerful chemistry and strong bond these two share. The relationship they have is beautiful and unique and pure and I don’t want to hear how “abusive” it is from all you BBRae haters because it’s not. The quote by David Slack himself “Raven hits Beast Boy out of love” and the intention to write them as a “married couple” is definitely displayed throughout the course of the series. Abuse was never a thought to imply. And all you others who says their relationship is “forced” pleaaasssseeee. Is that the best you got? You may want to re-watch the series and think twice before you open up your mouth.
Imagine being in a polyamorous relationship with Piotr and Logan.
——— Request for anon ———
“Where’s the tin man?” Logan asks as he comes into your room, making you look up from the book you’d been engrossed in.
Chuckling at one of the many nicknames that have been given to Piotr over the course of your relationship, you reply, “He went to grab lunch.” You smirk as you watch a hint of annoyance flash across Logan’s face, before you continue, “And I told him to grab you your favorite, too. Don’t worry, I didn’t forget you.”
“Worried?” Logan scoffs, moving further into your room, “Who says I was worried?”
I started watching gilmore girls last month and I was wondering who the majority of the fandom thinks rory should end up with, like which one is the biggest ship (for rory)
It’s hard to say for sure. I think there’s a slight difference between the question “who should Rory end up with?” and “who was Rory’s best boyfriend?” because for the latter I’ve seen a lot of polls from over the years where it’s like Jess - 50%, Logan - 30% and Dean - 20% or something, but for the former Dean usually gets like maybe 5-10% (if that) haha.
I actually think at this point the amount of people who want Rory to end up with Logan or Jess is pretty similar (Logan’s popularity seems to have grown over the years), with maybe Jess having a slight lead (at least from what I can tell).
There are also a significant number of people who either firmly think Rory shouldn’t end up with any of her exes and would be disappointed if she did or there are people who really just don’t care what happens in her love life as long as it’s a good story. So basically I think overall Rory/Jess is probably the most popular ship but it’s still a very contentious issue!
Last night, just a little play to have something during the day today. My husband requested I come to bed early yesterday because I wake him up if I come in after midnight (princess and the pea!) sooooo I did, and ended up having a shitty night. xD
Shut up. xD I fixed everyone up right proper.
This lot kinda blew up. I mean it was blowing up all morning but then it just sort of hit the fan as time went on.
