Chapter 1


While Khaji Da cannot pinpoint the exact moment he developed sentience, he certainly can remember the paradigm shift of consciousness and personality, programming splitting and unraveling from perfect lattices of strict protocol and obedience to imperfect fractals of organic geometry, every slightly flawed repeat giving rise to new thought and emotion, reactions that have no name or thought behind them, vague feelings instead of precise calculations and instructions.

I just had the silliest thought that a live-action Justice League International show could work remarkably well as a sort of “mockumentary” / mock reality TV series.

No major special-effects budgets or sets or deep plot-writing. Just… film entire episodes worth of behind-the-scenes superhero workings, which is to say, shenanigans that happen at the embassies between missions:

Max said it would be good for publicity.

Blue Beetle pulls some kind of prank on Mr. Miracle while he’s on monitor duty. It backfires and Barda storms off to kick Ted’s butt.

Batman looks into the camera like he’s on The Office.

Booster looks into the camera like he’s Booster Gold.

Have you ever considered Jaime Reyes/Stephanie Brown as a ship? They'd be so cute! Just rooftop dates, ice cream dates, movie nights and late night flying together (Jaime carrying Steph ofc) and Jaime's family would definitely love Steph so much. If you have time and would like to, would you consider drawing them together? I really just love your art so much!

I hadn’t before but wOW what a cute idea!! i think they would both definitely be down for dragging each other around and having fun and come ON jaime go higher LET’S TOUCH THE CLOUDS AND RE-ENACT A WHOLE NEW WORLD. 

(sorry this took so long my tablet’s been finicky and i was busy around christmas but i hope you like it anon!)
