Fake Film/TV Show:

They are an underground group. One that has existed for centuries. A network of female fighters that guard the world from forces of supernatural as well as natural. They are made up of women from all walks of life, both human and supernatural. Once accepted into The Sisterhood, they dedicate their lives to their cause.

In today’s age, the top government agencies believe this organization of women to be rumors. No powerful force as the one whispered about in the alleys, rooftops, decks, and boardrooms can exist in their minds. 

Then, a man is captured by the C.I.A. A week later, he blows half the building away. On that same day, several agencies across the globe face the same devastation. He is no normal man. He contains a power that which no one on Earth has seen. And he is the leader of a cult that plans to bring a new order to the world. This was only a warning.

The Sisterhood is awakened. An ex-con looking for redemption. A rogue witch that enjoys madness. Two assassins out for revenge. A Valkyrie damned to Earth. A hacker needing to help. A girl hiding a beast beneath her skin. A siren fulfilling a promise. A girl forced to become a monster. Two spies putting aside an old vendetta for a larger cause. And a girl from a distant world, trying to save the only home she knows. They are the Sisterhood and the last line of defense for our world.

Hell is a woman and she will make you face her wrath.

After watching Desolation of Smaug last night

  • Me: You know... I bet Smaug really liked that.
  • My Husband: What?
  • Me: That liquid gold bath. He spent all that time in the dwarves mountain with all that gold and access to the furnaces and smelters, and never once considered melting the gold down into a relaxing hot bath.
  • My Husband: You know... That's probably why he stayed under the surface so long. Probably kicking himself for not thinking of it sooner. He could have been soaking his scales in liquid gold!

I don’t have any attachment to her since I don’t know anything about her beside being “Tim Drake’s girlfriend and Lucius Fox’s daughter”. So I browsed a bit for spoilers, but out of 6 reviews I read, only 1 actually mention Tam Fox. The reviews averagely give the story high score, including the one that find Tam Fox’s fate problematic. One reviewer actually like that direction because they want a permanent tragedy that rises the stake and not something reversible comics usually do.
So I guess the answer to how could they go with it is because, aside to people who knew her, she’s not that important. Most of them probably didn’t even remember her or never read Red Robin. So most likely when the writer(s) decided to go with it, they didn’t even consider that she has fans. 
Lucius Fox is a well-known supporting Bat-cast, and Luke is the main character. Since they’re writing a story about a personal attack from a villainous former best friend who knows his identity, their option is limited to the other family members. The mother and the siblings.
I have my own gripe about this story as well though. Menace was born by making my personal relatable character, Luke’s best friend, into a villain who do this. I don’t like Luke’s character, so the best friend was supposed to be my entry point to this series, but NOPE. Now there’s nothing interesting in Batwing for me either. 

Ugh…Just when I thought DC couldn’t do any worse with Tam’s “New 52” fridging…*facepalm*It got worse… It actually got worse… High-res

Reactions to DC right now

alexisbatgirl:

Dick’s not gonna die:

But they’re turning him into an edgy spy with short hair and different features that totally isn’t like Dick at all:

What I’m doing to do about this (like with most of N52)

This about sums it up for me. This kind of story line would have suited Jason Todd better, IMO.

Haiku - Dizzy

Swiftly spins the world
Earth has got to be dizzy
This explains a lot?

—————


Author’s Note

Yeah… I had way too much time alone with my thoughts last night. This was a random string without any editing, whereas the previous haikus went through at least four or five revisions before I was happy with them.

Haiku - Burning Memories

Lend me your lighter
Set fire to the memories
Burn them into ash

—————


Author’s Note

I wrote the haikus on a spare white legal pad that was often used by my co-workers, both for making lists as well as doodling when shifts were slow.

I didn’t leave any poems at work, though…

Haiku - Prayers of Demeter

Listen to the snow
They’re the prayers of Demeter
Silent as the grave

—————


Author’s Note

Last night, work was really slow. There was an incident at my workplace which made things really quiet for the entire shift. The weather also didn’t help, because of the snow and ice on the roads. I didn’t really mind, though. I got to thoughts of writing and poetry and haikus in particular.

I haven’t written any poems in ages, it feels like. While i’d like to write some longer pieces, I think for now the shorter ones, like haikus, are a good warm-up.

Went on a haiku binge at work. Will be posting them later.

Side Note To Fan Fic Authors

twobirdsonesong:

Here’s the thing.

I read a lot of scripts. A lot. From professionals to aspiring writers to complete newbies. Features and pilots. Specs and treatments.

And 8 times out of 10 the fan fic that I’ve read over the last, oh, 15 years is leagues better than this stuff. It’s…
