I think the only way Tam’s treatment in Batwing could be made “right” to me is if it turns out the only reason she’s there on that track is because she beat the ever living shit out of someone bad and she left the poor sop in worse shape than her.
I read somewhere that she might have been a vigilante on a one shot with Nightwing known as Ursa.
Even with that…
This is NOT my Tam Fox.
My Tam is not a vigilante (though she has fantasies of Foxy Lady).
My Tam is not afraid to call “heroes”on their bullshit (I’m looking at you Tim).
My Tam is a survivor when she finds herself in worst-case-scenarios (pretty sure being kidnapped/targeted by assassins counts).
My Tam might be a victim at times, but she is not a damsel in distress, or a tool for the angst motivation of a male vigilante superhero, no matter who he is (looking at you, Mr. Goddamn Batman).
Let me explain my outrage the best I can. Tam Fox was disrespected in all the glory you can disrespect a character. This was not a some faceless victim. Tam is not just Luke Fox’s sister. She was not even that before this. She was a well establish, admittedly short lived, recurring character in…
HAHAHAHAHHA OFFICIALLY DC CAN’T HAVE CASSANDRA CAIN ANYMORE
I WANT HER PUT IN HER OWN GODDAMN UNIVERSE SHE IS OFF LIMITS NO TOUCHING
Is it bad that I see Cass as having a better shot at survival if she were to be placed in any other AU verse than DCnU?Reblogged from redundantthinking
TAM FOX IS SUCH A GOOD CHARACTER, HOW COULD YOU FUCKING TREAT HER LIKE THAT
YOU INTRODUCE HER THROWN OUT LIKE A PIECE OF TRASH
YOU DON’T DO IT AT ONE OF THE GALAS
AT LUCIUS’ OFFICE BEING INTRODUCED TO ONE OF THE BOYS
OR SOMEWAY IN HER OWN RIGHT
YOU INTRODUCE HER LIKE THAT
THAT IS DISGUSTING
Every bit of this above! If pre-reboot Tam Fox saw this comic book scene, oh man…
Tam: *after reading the scene, slams the book down on the coffee table and goes searching for something*
Tim: *danger senses tingling from his side of the sofa where he’s been playing Dragon Age* What are you looking for?
Tam: *slams a desk drawer shut with a small growl* Your utility belt.
Tim: *danger level rises from yellow to orange* Why?
Tam: I need your bo. There’s someone at DC Comics that needs to be beaten into unconsciousness.
Tim: *rises from the sofa to try and talk reason to Tam as he picks up the comic book* Now Tam… It’s just a comic from an alternate universe. I don’t think it’s necessary to— *pauses as he happens on the offending page*
Tam: *raises an eyebrow*
Tim: Well shit. *puts down the book and pulls out his phone*
Tam: What are you doing?
Tim: Calling in backup. If we’re going to an alternate universe to beat the crap out of someone, we’re going to need someone to open a portal.Reblogged from redundantthinking
Remember that story you never wrote where Tim actually saved his father from being killed by Captain Boomerang, but accidentally killed the Capt. in the process? Remember how, by some miracle of fate, neither Batman nor Jack Drake blamed Tim for the death?
Oh fuck. XD This is a hard one! D:
"They don’t understand." Tim whispers, face tucked into his arms as he curls up next to the gargoyle. Like it can hear him. Understand him. "They don’t- they just keep telling me it isn’t my fault. Looking at me like I’m some sort of hero or victim. I killed him. I- They shouldn’t be coddling me, thanking me, congratulating me…I."
"No. They don’t understand." A low, dark chuckle floats down from above. Tim glances up and sees Red Hood leaning against the ledge. His mask-despite being inanimate, seems to be laughing. "Heard about what you did, kid. Didn’t know you had it in you."
Tim looks back down at the city.
"Yeah. Neither did I." His fingers dig into his skin. He isn’t in uniform. Something seems wrong with putting on the Robin uniform when he-
He killed a man.
-did something so unforgivable.
"You alright, down there?"
No. Yes. Maybe. Someday. Never.
"How do you deal with it?" Boomerang’s shocked face repeats over and over in Tim’s head. The slick feeling of the boomerang in his hands. The gashes from the sharp edges are still healing on Tim’s hands. He can smell the blood. It clings to his skin. His father’s gurgling gasps seem to drown out the sound of peace. Batman’s voice in his com before he throws it aside- "Does it ever stop?"
Jason’s voice is bitter. “What do you think?”
No. Yes. Maybe. Someday. Never.
"I’m scared." He admits. Because- it’s true. And no one else will listen. Jason is so quiet that Tim thinks he’s left. Tim startles at the feeling of the elder’s hand on his shoulder. He looks up into the impassive mask’s face. No longer laughing. No longer amused. Blank, red, reflecting Tim’s pale face.
"Aren’t we all, replacement, aren’t we all?"
Oh! I forgot about this promo fill by heartslogos. I think I made my heart break a little.
Oh! lectorel look! See what I rediscovered thanks to the Tumblr app search of my username. Reblogged from afewnovelideas
Title: Untitled (for now)
Author: C.R. Scott, Lectorel
Genre: fic volley
Status: Work in Progress
Starring Characters: Tim Drake, Damian Wayne; John Hammond (so far)
Summary: Tim Drake and Damian Wayne get forced into a theme park tour for Wayne Enterprises. However, they both learn there is more to the theme park than rides and animatronics when they arrive. (crossover with Jurassic Park)
Author’s Notes (C.R): Starting a new fic volley tale with Lectorel. Not sure where this will end up, but I hope it’s fun for everyone involved. I was inspired by seeing some recent gifs starring dinosaurs from Jurassic Park, the movie. So I am imaging a setting where Tim and Damian, as civilians, get sent to visit the park as potential investors from Wayne Enterprises. Then things go haywire, like in the movie, and they need to survive as civilians with all their wits and none of their gear.
Lectorel, feel free to take any direction you want with your posts. I hope this first part I wrote inspires you.
(A/N: It’s fine. Life happens. Short part here, because I’ve got the rest of the week blocked out for Big_Bang work, and I’m out of time on expanding it.)
Musing on the idea of Ra’s being born in the time prior to the destruction of the Library of Alexandria… That he was, at one point, a famed alchemist/physician (from a family renowned for medicine) who had written books/scrolls that were once stored there.
“To an extent it’s a problem with fandom: the fact is that you’ve got thousands of intelligent people thinking about a problem, and statistically speaking some of them are likely to come up with something more clever than the creators. […] There comes a point at which, frankly, fandom IS better than the creators. We have more minds, more cumulative talent, more voices arguing for different kinds of representation, more backstory… The thing is that I rarely get involved with a show without a fandom anymore, because I actually enjoy the analysis and fic and fun more than I enjoy the show itself. Similarly, I get drawn into shows I otherwise wouldn’t really consider by the strength of their fandom. And I want the shows to live up to their fandom, but it’s an almost impossibly high bar, because the parts of fandom I choose to engage with are often parts that wouldn’t be considered sufficiently accessible or relevant to a majority of viewers. So… basically, for me, fandom is primary, and canon is secondary. The latter is really only there to facilitate the former.”
glitterarygetsit, in a discussion on fan responses to media on facebook
#this is the first time i’ve really articulated this #and i was quite pleased with it #this is the thing: i care so much less about original material than i do about fanworks
I feel quite similarly these days in regards to fandom.
Stressing about money.
Trying to find a way to pay my bills and buy groceries when I clearly don’t have enough to do both…
I’m so tired of not having enough money to make ends meet, especially when I have to work at a place where people frivolously spend money hand over fist without even flinching.
So recently I read Red Robin # 24 and found out about the weird that we get another prediction that Tim is going to turn out evil. Before you had Teen Titans with future gun totting Batman Tim; which always seemed wrong to me. Partly because a gun just doesn’t seem like…
The b.s with the Teen Titans, the way they kept bringing up that ‘evil future batman Tim’ made it more than just like batman and the Red Robin after Yost left series made it worse. I think that it makes sense that Batman would influence his apprentices and that the job would make one change over time. However it just doesn’t seem like Tim to become like Batman in the way he did in the comics. I don’t think the vigilante cop thing suits him. I think he would be more like sherlock holmes and have the problem of becoming obsessed with work and solving a puzzle. This obsessive nature, over working, putting himself in danger would be the problem habits. He doesn’t like to control people and he’s shown that over and over again.
