Can We Talk About The Fact That Every Version of Barry Wants Iris

It’s pretty much canon. Every version of Barry Allen wants Iris West

Earth 1 Barry Allen

Earth 2 Barry Bartholomew Allen

Earth 2 Barry is married to Earth 2 Iris West

Emo 2024 Barry Allen

Barry never got over her death. He spent his time in the ruins of Star Labs staring at a photo of them

Amnesia Barry Bart Allen

Barry without his memories 

Hell even evil Savitar Barry

This should not be romanticized. Savitar Barry was a psycho and a murderer who tried to kill Iris. He’s Barry at his worst. Despite all that there was still a part of him drawn to Iris. The way he instantly closes his eyes at Iris touch. The love he once felt for Iris was still there, buried and twisted beyond belief, but still present.


Earth 1 Barry Allen w Earth 2 Iris West

That I love you was real. 

Earth 1 Barry Allen w FlashPoint Iris

Earth 1 Barry Allen w Millie Floss

This wasn’t even a real Iris. For all intents, she was a dream Iris. Didn’t matter though, Barry still hated seeing her with another man lol

In conclusion, Barry Allen is drawn to Iris West like a moth to a flame ❤

Hey :)

Barry looks at his arm in confusion, he felt the message leave a tingling sensation after it appeared, he quickly grabbed a pen out and wrote back.


Oh wow, I didn’t think you would answer.

Why not?

Well I don’t know. 

Okay then.

After a couple of minutes with no answer, Barry sighed putting his pen down, he walks out of his forensics lab fast  walking towards the bathroom to wash all of the ink off. He walks in to find Joe West, his adoptive father. Washing his hands, Barry gives him a half smile as he walks next to him, turning the tap on as he starts scrubbing at the messages. 

Joe looks over at him, his eyebrows raising. “Soulmate?” He asks as he grabs a few paper towels to wipe his hands. Barry nods as Joe leans against the wall next to the sink. Right as Barry finishes washing his hands more ink appears on his skin. Joe looks over to see what Barry’s soulmate had to say. 

Sorry I didn’t answer before, I had to do something.

Barry looked at Joe to see him smirking at him, Barry chuckled walking out of the restrooms, going back towards his lab.He sat down grabbing the same pen as before and replied,

It’s fine

Okay, should we get to know each other? 

Yeah, sure.

Well, Hi my name’s Y/N, and I guess I am your soulmate.

The message somehow makes Barry feel giddy inside as he smiles.

Hello, my name’s Barry, and yeah, I guess we’re soulmates.

I guess we are.


[  in which whenever your soulmate draws on their skin, you will see it too ]

this was horrible.

should i do a part 2?

Anybody think these four words...

…are the sexiest things to come out of Barry Allen’s mouth? I mean we’ve seen Barry wax poetic many times and, in the suit, The Flash has had his cocky moments. But, in this moment right here, Bartholomew Henry Allen is like this is my woman and when ANYTHING happens to her YOU. CALL. ME. Are we clear??

He’s not playing. AT ALL.

Bart Allen/Impulse

Okay, so, I don’t think I’ve ever made it any secret how big a fan I am of Bart Allen (aka Bartholomew Allen II, Impulse, Kid Flash II, or The Flash IV). He’s my all time favourite comic book character, and right up there with Huckleberry Finn for my favourite character from all of literature. It’s also not a secret for anyone who has ever heard of Bart that he is fun and wild and reckless and “impulsive”. Hell, Red Tornado basically called him the human embodiment of Id to Superboy and Robin’s respective ego and super-ego. And don’t get me wrong, these are some of my favourite things about Bart, and they are what made his transformation to Kid Flash when he joined the Teen Titans all the more meaningful, but I worry sometimes that people forget the amount of growing up Bart did during Mark Waid’s run of Impulse.

Take, for example, Impulse #6

I would love to post this whole issue, because there is so much important about it, but I do not own any rights to Impulse or its characters, and, honestly, I think you all should go out and buy a copy. But here’s a brief overview of how Bart grows through the book:

In the beginning, Bart is asked by the Vice Principal to hang out with this kid named Preston, who keeps showing up to school with bruises. Bart, having, still recently, spent his whole life living in a video game in which he is the only character, assumes this situation revolves about him and him making friends, but upon the VP’s insistence that it does not, Bart agrees to hang out with Preston.

The two go hang out in a swamp after school because Preston believes there is a monster hiding in the swamp and wants to get him on camera. The pair does see something, but the entire endeavor ends with Preston’s father finding them and yelling at Preston and sending Bart home. The events send up red flags with Bart, at least enough to make him ask Max Mercury (his guardian) what he should do.

While going back to the swamp to fight the “monster”, Bart realizes that it is really just a boy born with a disorder giving him physical deformities, and that he lives in the swamp with his parents, as they are trying to protect him. Upon meeting the parents, the boy’s father says, perhaps the most important line in the book:

At this point, Bart grows up. He realizes there are real monsters in this world, and they aren’t just the villains he fights with Max and Wally. He goes back to Preston’s house, and when Preston’s dad asks why he’s there:

Anyway, the twist in the story is that Preston is actually being abused by his mother. And while Bart (and Preston’s father) witnesses it, he is in costume while doing so, meaning if he was to tell the VP, his secret identity would be seriously compromised.

Deciding whether or not to tell someone about the happenings is a big dilemma for Bart, and he most certainly does NOT make the decision impulsively, but in the end, he decides doing the right thing and protecting his friend is what counts.

Luckily, before Bart can tell, Preston, himself comes forward and tells the Principal about the abuse. Preston’s mother receive therapy and Preston goes to live with his father.

Now, are all Impulse books like this? No. Some are fluffy, some are scary, some are deep, and honestly, there are the odd few I don’t care for. My point here isn’t that people aren’t allowed to enjoy carefree Bart. He’s fun and entertaining and has characteristics that we all wish we had. My point is just that he is also rounded. He’s human. And pretending that he is a flat character who only exists for comic relief is utter nonsense.
