Summary:

The second story in my Raven series. The first is "Growing Pains."

 Ken's greatest pain is his secret. That is, until he has to make a decision that could destroy the team, and himself. This story is Part 1 in what will be at least a three part series.

Now with an additional epilogue from Ken's POV, which should tie the story better into both the title and the series storyline ...

Story Notes:

This story overlaps the Jigokillers incident. The title is inspired by the Three Days' Grace song, "Life Starts Now," which works for this piece on multiple layers.

Huge props to Amethyst for her valiant beta efforts! 

Now with an additional epilogue from Ken's POV, which should tie the story better into both the title and the series storyline ...

Just renamed this epilogue since having 2 chapters named "Epilogue" seemed silly. :)

This is a new epilogue from Ken's POV, which should tie the story better into both the title and the series storyline ... 

"Life Starts Now" is a song by Three Days' Grace. I don't claim any ownership of the lyrics, and highly recommend their music. :)
