Support is a Raven/Chelsea-themed That's So Raven fic by SkinnyLittleLesbian.

The fic starts with Raven, Chelsea, and Eddie graduating high school together. The trio go off to separate colleges in autumn and sparingly see each other afterwards. Eight years later, Chelsea turns up at Raven's office, dirty and heavily pregnant. She's run away from her abusive husband. She knows Raven will be there for her, so she's come to ask to stay for a while. Raven agrees and soon Raven's long-standing feelings for Chelsea come back.

Support provides examples of:

  • Chick Magnet: Raven attracts the eye of several women.
  • Childhood Friend Romance: Raven and Chelsea met as toddlers. Raven has had feelings for Chelsea since high school, but it didn't turn into a romance until adulthood.
  • Dark Fic: Chelsea turns to Raven after she runs off from her abusive husband.
  • Domestic Abuse: Chelsea was in an abusive relationship for several years. Her husband seemed nice at first, but his anger problems soon came to light and he began becoming physically abusive. After becoming pregnant, Chelsea became wary because she didn't want anything to happen to the baby. When her husband threatened divorce, Chelsea ran away.
  • Family Theme Naming: Chelsea decides to name her daughter "Robin" because it's a bird-themed name, much like Raven. Raven and Chelsea are Robin's mothers.
  • Gold Digger: Raven dated a woman named Christina who was like this. After eight days, Raven changed her number and "accidentally" forgot to tell Christina.
  • Hurt/Comfort Fic: An eight-month pregnant Chelsea turns to her best friend Raven when her husband threatens to divorce her and take the baby with him.
  • One-Steve Limit: Chelsea had wanted to name her daughter after Raven, but rooming with Raven made that a no-go option. She instead opts for another bird-related name, "Robin".
  • Out of Focus: Eddie appears in the prologue, then is never mentioned again until the final chapter. He doesn't keep in touch with Chelsea and Raven much.
  • Slash Fic: Support ships Chelsea and Raven together. Raven's long-standing feelings for Chelsea come back after she's united with Chelsea.
