I was perusing my f-list, as I am oft to do lol, I start to try to sound smart when I'm half-asleep, and a post of [ profile] pervyficgirl's lead me to a post about Unpopular Women in fandom. I made a thread.

If your question is why didn't I make a Steph one, it's because she's already accounted for. <3 Kory needs love too, darlings. <3 *passes out*

My thinking license should be revoked after a certain time at night or after weird sleeping patterns. I blame this icon: for the following idea. Oh, and Batman.

Oh, I guess I should blame [ profile] _sephet_ for encouraging me. Or am I encouraging her to draw it? It's both?

Yeah, so. Bat Dinos. Bat!Dino's parents are deeeeeead. Then it spiraled from there. To Robins (which makes Pre-Crisis Jay's parents' death easiest; Croc goes nom nom nom) and Bat villains. Then my brain tried to figure out Booster Gold, and it all went down hill from there.

He'd be like bones! 'Cause the future has no live Dinos! D: He'd be really shiny bones? And Ted would be some huge blue prehistoric beetle, and they'd be in love until Maxwell Lord-Rex came along and SMOOSHED the beetle and and and- *sob*

While I was at the University City stop, waiting for the train home in the cold, I had a wonderful meta post planned about my fandoms, and how I feel about them. I don't remember it now, and this makes me sad, though I think I was gonna mention my old ones being catharsis, and DCU being my most passionate fandom (though, at times, that wasn't in a GOOD way), and I don't even know.

Also, at some point, I'm going to be at a damn keyboard when I have the urge to list all my pet peeves. This is list should exist. >>;; Most of them won't effect you guys. (Unless you somehow come onto my LJ and smoke near a no smoking sign; then I will have to kill you dead with the cigarette shoved up an unpleasant place.) *smile* Anyway, if you know me, you know what annoys me and doesn't. Reading my LJ would give you a good feel of that, I think.

...ohmygod, I still feel cold, and I slept all warm in my blankets and my toasty room! I'M TURNING INTO A BECKABOO! Sorry, Bek, you suck at being warm with 8 blankets; we've been over this, so you can't be too mad about this comment. XD *shivers and goes to curl up with more fanfic* ...though, maybe drinking almost a whole bottle of cold water when I woke up is the reason I'm so cold. ;-; I was thirsty! *sob*
shinyglorchan: (Dick/Jason: sex on the mats)
While I was on the Hetalia Kink Meme, I found a link that I found a very good read. It was written last year during the World Cup, it seems. It's about penetration (and how that's not the be-all-end-all sex act) as well as bottoming =/= submissive (unless the person wants it to be).

Here's the link, and I'd like to say, I'm a bit guilty of some of thought processes here that I've picked up from the culture around me. For example, using the baseball bases metaphor. Like the post says: penetrative sex isn't the be all end all of sex.

That being said, fic-wise, fandom in general could benefit from this. I mean, really, tell me; when was the last time you read a fic with intercrural sex in it? What about a couple that just doesn't do penetrative sex? Hell, a fandom that doesn't have the term top-bottom, pitcher-catcher, seme-uke, ect.? Not very damn often, I'm betting.

All this being said, I'm not saying this to offend anyone. Just wanted to put the thoughts out there for broadening horizons. <3

Winick: And I can't talk too much about it, but I've been getting a tremendous amount of email about Red Hood, after the mini-series finished up. People want to know if we're going to do more.

Yes, we're going to do more Jason Todd/Red Hood. And yes, I'll be writing it. I can't tell you in what manner. Or what we're doing exactly, but we'll be announcing it soon. There will be some Jason Todd stuff coming out.

THERE IS A GOD! Here's the concrete proof, at the end of the interview. SQUUUUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!

EDIT: There's also a petition here for an ongoing. <3
shinyglorchan: (Sleeping Robins)
So, I was going through my f-list and found someone who write OT3 fic posted this little bit of goodness. It's a piece of meta by a polyamorous person about polyamory. It's a really good read (and wow, correct grammar abound!), and I think the next time I write a moresome fic, I'm going to go back and read that for some ideas.

As a person who knows pretty much nothing about polyamory (AKA this coming from a person who went to Catholic school all her grade school and high school life), it was very enlightening. Mostly, I found it to be common sense if thought about, but hey, if polyamory confuses you, and you want to write your OT3 or such, give it a read. <3

...also, Firefox doesn't seem to like the words 'polyamorous' or 'polyamory.' Go fig. Maybe it's just twitchy about the mix of Greek and Latin roots. XD
shinyglorchan: (Haven't Seen Very Often...)
So I was thinking about why I ship Jason/Tim, and usually, I'm not very articulate to why. Well, I feel like trying (even though I'm sure my genius thoughts from the bathtub have faded, and I won't be anymore articulate than normal).

Reason 1: If any of you have ever tried to make sense of the Bat timeline (which I'm sure most of you have for fic purposes), and you look at the Robins' timeline from where Dick stops, Jason starts then dies, and when Timmy comes out of the shadows, you'll find that Tim, according to the info that he started stalking at 9, stalked both Dick and Jason for equal amounts of time (if not a bit longer for Jason considering Dick was probably more with the Teen Titans during his last few years of Robin).

With that reasoning and the fact Tim is so enamored with Dick, surely stalking Jason for about the same amount of time lead to at least some hero worship (that canon ignores now, but they didn't always: e.g. Nightwing #25, being the source I think off the top of my head and those Batman issues where Tim has hallucinations of both Robins). There was potential, which leads to my next point.

Reason 2: There was so much potential in the what ifs. You all know I love AUs, and the multiverse concept is like my favorite, so the potential of what would have happened had Jason lived? Would Tim have come out of the shadows? What if Jason had lived, but couldn't be Robin anymore? I'm sure Tim would have gone to both Dick and Jason once Batman went a little crazy (which I'm sure would still happen if Jay got seriously injured).

So many possibilities. Hell, there's even the possibilities of Tim running into Jay pre-Robin II. He was stalking Batman & Robin, and we all know that leads to Crime Alley more often than not. He could have run into that street smart kid who was jacking tires to survive. Jason wasn't always a big bundle of anger. Sure, anger is a big part of who he is, but another part of him is protecting people who can't protect themselves (and this didn't just happen because he was Robin, or he'd never have helped Batman take down Ma Gunn is first Post-Crisis storyline). And Tim was definitely a tiny little thing. Jay would have been protective because it would have been obvious Tim didn't belong in Crime Alley.

And back on the thread of what if Jay had lived, there's always the possibility that Tim could have been someone else's sidekick (e.g. Blue Beetle, Black Canary, ect.), and he and Jay would have met that way. Tim would probably still have his Robin awe, and Jason would eat that up. XD

Reason 3: Now, let's talk about how Jason came back. After the Hush and Under the Hood stuff, when he mellowed a little from Countdown, Jason does try to work with Tim. Tim, of course doesn't take the offer because of Jay's methods, but there's an effort there. A bit of a change from trying to slit his throat (and anyway, that wasn't really about Tim so much as to get to Bruce, and the fight in the Tower was more testing his replacement; it's not his fault Tim wasn't up to snuff at that point, at least against Jason's brute strength).

Ignoring Battle for the Cowl because I'm waiting for the retcon, Tim took on Jason's costume yet again. This is not the first time Tim's worn a costume of Jay's. In A Lonely Place Of Dying, Tim takes Jason's Robin costume to go help Batman and Nightwing with Two-Face. Then there's the time Tim fought in a red ski mask, which looked rather similar to the Red Hood outfit Jason where's later (which is just coincidence, but it amuses me, shhh). Now we have Tim in the Red Robin suit. Not that canon is ever gonna point out where it came from, but it was specially made for Jason by Earth-51 Bruce.

Okay, none of the reason above really connects, but shush. BUT, if you read Red Robin, you see Tim getting rather Jason like. Not to Jason's extent, but there's enough there that if they didn't have all the baggage, they'd get along at this point. More likely, if BftC and Batman & Robin issues are proven to be a Jason Todd from another Earth, and our Jason came back from wherever, I'm pretty sure Tim would begrudgingly work with him, at least to take down the fake Jason.

Miscellaneous Facts: So, Batman: the Animated Series is totally like Jason and Tim had a love child. That Tim Drake has Jay's back story, some of his anger, and the rest is some bouncy Tim with the stalkerness we all have come to love. XD

Then there's just the almost extreme opposites the boys are. Opposites attract, as corny as that sounds. Plus, Jason's the brawn while Tim's the brains. It would combined to make an interesting and effective team up.

And though I hate BtfC, some of the lines were totally Jason hitting on Tim. XD *points to her icon* Yes, that's how I'm ending this little rant. It's valid, dammit. XD And 'Join me. Be my Robin.' is totally a marriage proposal. XD Take that.
