gwenfrankenstien: Bette and Rose from the Wolf House series (bette and rose)
Tumblr has declared this Richard Siken Week. As ever, I jump on any bandwagon that allows me to contribute to fandom by writing text on things in photoshop.
9 large images, two parts Batfamily to one part Wolf House )

So uh today I was watching the Japanese Grand Prix and I realised that the world absolutely needs a DC figure skating AU. So then this happened.

So um I kinda made fifty icons from the latest issue of Tiny Titans?
It is the Tiny Adorable Batkids issue, of course I did.

So yesterday I realised I never posted any of the half-billion DC icons I made over the course of the summer. And I'm going to be internetless for the weekend, so if I'm going to do this I should do it now!

[11-13] Damian Wayne (Robin)
[14-25] Dick Grayson (Robin, Nightwing)

The City that Never Shuts Up )

On Tumblr, I mentioned having found an essay I wrote in high school, about Frank Miller's Robins and Simone De Beauvoir's The Second Sex, and several people said they wanted to see it.

This was the first real essay I ever wrote; I've gone through and moved quotes around, since they were basically just dropped into the beginning or end of paragraphs, but that's all I've changed. I've tried to preserve the run on sentences whenever possible, because 16-year-old me was addicted to commas.

This essay sort of dwells on the fuckery of Frank Miller's weird issues with Robin, if that's the thing you'd like to avoid. (From my journal, you'd get the impression that all I ever do for school is write essays about Robins whenever I think I can get away with it. ...Actually, I do do that, never mind.)

Possibly the only use of the phrase 'giant burning vagina' in an academic context. )

I just realised I only ever did 29 days, so. I should probably finish that.

Thing You Would Undo, If You Could
I'm not sure if this counts as just one thing. )

Now, art! I had barely scanned anything this summer until now, so there is... Kind of a lot. There is one original piece (a demonic Siren-type-thing) but the rest is DC. Included are most of Young Justice (with new additions to the team); Misfit; various Batgirls; Jeannette and Black Alice; and several Girl Wonders, one canon and one very AU. (I told you there was kind of a lot.)
Obviously, very image-heavy. )

Most Memorable Death

Okay, I'm going to go with the obvious one here...

Jason Todd. )

Favourite Vehicle/Form Of Transportation

I HAVE NO IDEA. I feel like the answer should be the Batmobile or the Super-Cycle? Or am I contractually obliged to say the Aerie One? I have no particular emotional attatchment to any of these-- OH WAIT I KNOW THE ANSWER IT IS THE BUG. Ted Kord made a flying car! And fought crime with it! This is pretty cool. I have no real clever thoughts on account of headache, but I'd feel guilty if I didn't get this posted tonight. (Thanks for that, brainchemistry.)

Also! A lot of my non-comics-reading friends tend to be confused by the plethora of various Robins in various configurations across several universes. So I, uh, made a helpful chart?
Batman needs a Robin, or five. )

Before I do this, I'm going to throw some links here. [livejournal.com profile] sharpest_rose has started unlocking her old DC fic! Including Jabberwock, which I have, uh, talked about extensively, and all of 2004

GUESS WHAT I'LL BE READING THIS WEEKEND *___*

(I am just realising how young I was when these were written. To be fair, I came late to the party, I think I actually read them spring of 2006, but still, I was fifteen in spring of 2006. Uh, the Robin suit gives me magic? :D?)

Now, onto memery. )

Today's question is Favourite Power, which I don't think I actually have an answer to because most of my favourite characters don't have them. I'm a Batfamily fan! My favourite will basically always be the Badass Normal!

So no real meme answer today. But before I go-- I made a thing! A Steph tribute vid to "Joyful Girl" by Ani Difranco, because could there be a more perfect Steph song? I don't think so. Watch it here on YouTube or embedded, behind the cut. (Fair warning: There are some War Games panels in this, if you (reasonably!) want to avoid thinking about that story.)

She does it for the joy it brings. )

(This was actually supposed to be Day Fifteen's question but I skipped it somehow)

Team-up You'd Most Like To See

Various permutations of the Batfamily, pretty much )

Favourite Animated Adaptation

HEY INTERNET GUESS WHAT CAME OUT TODAY? I haven't even watched it yet and I already know it is going to be my favourite, so I figure I will just write this as I watch. Spoilers, obviously, and probably also flaily incoherence.

Batman: Under The (Red) Hood )
gwenfrankenstien: icon by me, art by Art Balthazar (even robins)
Today's question was supposed to be "favourite romance" and I still have no idea how I plan on answering that.

HOWEVER, I have just had an Idea that needs to get spilled out here in hope that someone who can write takes a shine to it.

LoM/A2A, Even Robins Style )

I make sort of compulsively make icons to deal with stress, anger, or just generally feeling like shit. And then they pile up and nothing ever happens to them. Except that I'm not letting that happen right now! I am sharing them with you, the internet! Don't you feel loved.

[001-010] Barbara Gordon (Batgirl)
[011-020] Cass Cain (Batgirl)
[021-031] Damian Wayne (Robin)
[032-039] Dick Grayson (Robin/Nightwing)
[040-050] Jason Todd (Robin/Red Hood)
[051-057] Kate Kane (Batwoman)
[058-072] Steph Brown (Spoiler/Robin/Batgirl)
[073-076] Steph/Cass
[077-085] Tim Drake (Robin/Red Robin)
[086-100] Misc. Batfamily
Gotham City: More Superheroes Per Capita Than Any Other City In The DCU. )

So as you may know, [profile] comicsbigbang is a thing that exists. And [profile] soda_and_capes has written the story I've been wanting to read for about five years! And I made an illustration for it! I don't know what else to say except gushing about the story, which is about Steph and Jason figuring out what with your life after you've already died in the line of duty, and it is amazing and beautiful and I love all Robins forever.

Uh. Anyway! I made an illustration for this story! An actual finished piece, with a real background and everything! The art is g-rated, the story is definitely not.
