Go To

To Catch A Raven is a Teen Titans fanfic, written in 2008 by Lynx Klaw.

The story starts with Jinx setting up a Hostage Situation so that she can come face-to-face with the Teen Titans. When she does, she singles out Raven in particular. Jinx has one request before going into custody: she wants to kiss Raven. To her surprise, Raven agrees.

To Catch A Raven provides examples of:

  • Do Not Call Me "Paul": Jinx prefers being called "Jinx" over her real name "Kamala".

  • Ethnicity Obscuring Mutation: Jinx is Indian but people, even other Indians, don't usually notice this because of her gothic style and her grey skin color (though she does have racial features).
  • First-Name Basis:
    • When talking casually, the HIVE Five use their real names around each other.
    • Raven refers to the Titans by name on their off-time.
  • First Kiss: Jinx is Raven's first kiss. Unsatisfied by it, she kisses Jinx a second time.
  • Ill Girl: Brant's younger sister Marie has a heart condition. She needs to take medication to keep her heart from beating too fast.
  • Named by the Adaptation: The HIVE members are given names: Jinx is named "Kamala Malti". (frequently shortened to "Kammie"), Gizmo is named "Mike", and Mammoth is named "Baran".
  • Oh My Gods!: Raven says things like "Azar enlightened".
  • Shout-Out:
    • Jinx has a It's Happy Bunny lighter.

    • While drugged in the second chapter, Jinx sings the lyrics to "Cold" by Crossfade.
  • Sir Swears-a-Lot: Gizmo curses as much as he does in canon, except that he uses real swears thanks to the lack of censors.
  • Slash Fic: To Catch A Raven is a romance fic between the theme pairing Jinx and Raven. Jinx asks Raven out in the first chapter.
