After like two years of saying I’d do it, I finally drew Starfire and finished a pic of her. Tried more dynamic shading for this pic to match the background. Personally I think this came out pretty well!
“Ugh, no…” Raven slouched over the table, wishing her cup of coffee was big enough to hide her face. Starfire looked over her shoulder to see what was causing the dark haired girl to act that way.
At the entrance of the coffee shop was a girl wearing a varying combination of fishnet and purple that formed her outfit. Her hair was neon pink and she was making her way to the counter. The redhead recognized her as Jinx, though the last time they’d seen her she had shaved all her hair off. She also happened to be Raven’s ex-girlfriend, which explained why she was trying to hide in her coffee right now.
“I don’t think she saw you.” Starfire assured as she took a sip of her latte. It didn’t seem to calm Raven, who was still staring into her coffee like it was about to talk to her. "Would you rather leave?“
"What? No. No. It’s fine.” Raven said in a hurry as she finally made eye contact with the redhead, who only smiled reassuringly at her. Doing her best to smile back, the dark haired girl sat up as she took a deep breath.
“So, about the homecoming dance….” Starfire started again.
Raven had lost track of what they had been talking about. Probably something or another about Starfire’s many responsibilities with the lacrosse team. Those things usually eluded Raven, since she had little involvement in them as it was.
“Would you be my date?"
It wasn’t where she imagined that subject was headed, Raven almost spit out her coffee. Now it didn’t much matter that Jinx or anyone else in the world was there. One of the lead players of the female lacrosse team had just asked her out to the most important social event of the school year. They’d been dating for a while, but frankly Raven had imagined Starfire would go along with someone more socially compatible for the event.
"You want me to go to the dance with you?” Raven asked for further clarification.
Starfire simply nodded, with that beaming smile that made Raven all flustered from the attention. It was no secret that the dark haired girl wasn’t much for social events, their relationship was based on various other aspects. Public appearances wasn’t one of them, but Raven didn’t want to decline the redhead’s invitation. It was their senior year and these would be the last chances she’d get if she ever wanted to put herself out there. Starfire always stayed in with her, so Raven could afford to go to some of the events for a change. In the past, she’d never had a real reason to go to them. Now, the redhead was obligated to make an appearance and if her girlfriend could make it a little more bearable then she ought to attend.
“I’ll go.” She finally said, quickly going for a sip of her coffee before she changed her answer.
“Really? Oh, it’ll be so fun Raven, you won’t regret it!” The redhead was bouncing on her chair now. She reached over and gave Raven’s free hand a squeeze.
They made eye contact and smiled at each other. Despite their huge differences they always found themselves in a perfectly balanced middle ground. Coffee happened to be in their list of overlapping similarities.
