whaddup page 12. goodbye heart shaped box.

thoughts:

-yeah. he threw the dang box off the roof. why did so many people want him to keep it anyway? i was confused. i mean this thing obviously haunts the crap out of the lad. he doesn't look at it and think happy thoughts, he looks at it and thinks about what he could've had but didn't. and what's the point of storing it away in a box so it can gather dust? just so he can unearth it in 10 years and be like 'aw what great memories?'

he doesn't need this freakin box to remember the great times he had with Terra. they're in his head. and right now, Terra has obviously moved on while he hasn't. and that sucks. this thing represents their kindof sortof relationship, and throwing this it is just a step in the right direction for him. throwing the box doesn't mean that he never wants to think about Terra again. it just means that he's ready to start letting go of the thought of him and her being together. why should he keep angsting over her if it's never gonna happen? it's not fair to him.

- whyy would raven ever stop him from throwing it? it's his, he made it, and she's not the type of person to intrude on or question these types of decisions made by her friends...

- I don't hate Terra. I used to, but now i kind of appreciate her. maybe in an alternate reality her and bb could've worked out. they had their cute moments. but in this universe the odds were ever not in their favor. yea.

-do i think throwing a heart shaped box will make beast boy magically get over her just like that? no. these things take time, but raven pretty much told him that his friends would help him get through it, so he felt ready to give up the dang box.

-the look on their faces in the last panel is not 'i luuuuhhrve you'. it's more like, 'i feel kind of relieved' and 'i'm proud of you.' don't worry, the bb/rae comics shall come later. i think these two need to grow up a little before they can work as a couple. but this experience (in my head canon) probably bonded them a little and that's a step in the right direction, right?

- only one more page to go!

- yaryaryayrrrryarrrrr

forward to page 13: [link]

I began loving Raven's character a little more as I see more to her. Other than seeing her as the sarcastic, gothic girl, she also strikes me as the "voice of reason." Many things she says are true. I really love how she's there for Beast Boy in his time of need. He did the same for her when she made the horrible discovery of Malchior's lies. I love these two a lot.
Letting go of the past is never easy, but once you make the step in doing so, you'll heal in time. Beast Boy may have lost Terra, but he still has his friends who "are" with him and will stand by him, and he'll do the same for them.

That's the closest BB's come to smiling around anybody since he got back from that high school, and that's also the closest Raven could get to a smile when talking about something Terra related after the Aftershock episodes. This is the first few seconds of healing for the both of them, as a budding couple, showing. it's small, but it's a good sign.

You mention that in an alternate reality that BB and Terra might have worked out...
The only other alternate TT reality I can think of at the moment is the comics and in those, Terra was an evil bitch. Compared to comic Terra, animated series Terra was a saint.

i understand ur story decisions, and think this comic is just lovely on some many levels. I'm glad he threw it, cause its a sign of moving on( and i know there's no malice begind it). Of course, what makes the page for me is the last panel. I dunno, when i look at it, i smile. The word acceptance pops into my mind when looking at it. Another great page. I look forward to the next/final page

And as for the odds of BB/T working in this universe being better...? Consider this: In the comics, Terra was a cigarette smoking sociopath who was hired by Slade from the very beginning to learn all of the teams secrets, equipped with a camera contact lens. Oh, and he slept with her. She was...oh...16, I think.

At the end, she didn't sacrifice herself to save anything. Terra died because she just wanted everyone around her to be dead too. She brought the building down on top of them. She killed numerous members of the H.I.V.E. in the process.

I think this universe had a much better chance for success.

i know that terra was a crazy bitch in the comics. by 'a different universe' i just meant that they would've worked out if things had gone a little differently. like, for example, if when she returned, she wanted to return to her old life as a titan. but she didn't, so... it is what it is.

But it was the embodiment of those good times! Of the best of those times! His problem was that he CHOSE to focus on what could have been. Maybe Raven should have convinced him to stop focusing on what could have been.

Why not move on to burning all the pictures of Terra? Maybe they should brick up the door to her old room?

This only makes sense if he had an unhealthy obsession. If he was wasting his life doing nothing but staring at the objects and thinking of Terra. I think seasons 3-5 showed he wasn't doing that. It's a mirror, not a pack of cigarettes.

And it's still a nice place to store things.

"This only makes sense if he had an unhealthy obsession"

not really. i thought of it more like a physical metaphor for his relationship with terra. and give the guy a break, this was all supposed to be happening on the same day terra kind of faded out of his life. i know he was doing fine seasons 3-5, but the whole 'things change' episode kind of reopened old wounds. so he wanted to mope over the box. i wouldn't call that an obsession. and at the end of this crappy day, he probably felt a little relieved to be able to let go of it.

...why? If he got over it once, he could get over it again without tossing a memento into the ocean.

Do you know much about grief? Because those feelings don't just fade away after you first felt them. It came back to Beast Boy, and with all those extra years of basically repressing them, it just added to the hurt. And he was coping in the worst way, that box was just a reminder of all that hurt and he needed to get away from it.

There are stages of grief a person has to go through, whether when a loved one dies, or simply when a relationship ends. We saw him go through Denial, Anger, and Bargaining in the last episode of the show. It could be argued, depending on how you interpret the last part of that episode, that he also made it through Depression to Acceptance, but if so, those stages were rushed, and I'm enjoying your longer exploration of those two stages.

Dude. That throw was epic.

My husband saw this, and he's like "I would think that it would have landed there" and points right to the base of the tower. He has little faith in BB's ability to throw things.
