  • Cyborg: No!
  • Robin: Oh my god, oh my god, oh my god!!
  • Beast Boy: It's unbelievable.
  • Robin: Oh my god, oh my god, oh my god!!
  • Cyborg: Ok, alright we wanna hear everything. Robin, get the drinks and unplug the phone. BB, does this end well or do we need tissues?
  • Beast Boy: Ohhh it ended very well.
  • Robin: Do not start without me! Do not start without me!!
  • Cyborg: Alright, let’s hear about the kiss. Was it like... was it like, a soft brush against your lips or was it like a, y'know, “I gotta have you now” kinda thing?
  • Beast Boy: Well, at first it was really intense, y'know, and then... oh god, and then we just sorta sunk into it…
  • Cyborg: Ohh, so, ok, was she, like, holding you or were her hands like, on your back?
  • Beast Boy: No, actually first they were–they started out on my waist... and then they slid up, and then they were in my hair...
  • Cyborg & Robin: Ohhh...
  • (Scene changes from BB, Cyborg, and Robin to Starfire, Raven, and Jinx eating pizza around the table)
  • Raven: And then I, and then I kissed him.
  • Jinx: Tongue?
  • Raven: Yeah.
  • Jinx: Cool.

if you missed ryan potter’s live story tonight about him landing the role of beast boy among other things:

  • his favorite colors are purple, pink, and forest green
  • referred to turtles as his “spirit animal” followed by “turtles are lit”
  • so obviously, he hopes gar shifts into a turtle at some point
  • he thinks it would be super cool if cassandra cain was introduced to the dctv universe
  • he plans to do his own stunts
  • he’s excited for JL and especially gal gadot
  • that’s a woman to wonder at”
  • “if y’all hating on turtles you can get off my live”
  • can’t rate the robins in terms of favorite because he loves them all
  • spent last 22 years of his life playing video games, reading comics, watching anime, & going to cons
  • confirmed himself to be harry potter’s third cousin twice removed
  • favorite character from young justice was aqualad and enjoyed his storyline with his dad
  • while watching the judas contract, says, “okay damian, calm down”
  • when he heard the news of getting the role, he was too tired & jetlagged to react
  • he did facetime his mom and she flipped
  • “we are not gonna talk about death note in this house.”
  • thinks that tom holland killed it as spiderman
  • likes waffles, pancakes, and french toast all equally
  • “is live-streaming the judas contract pirating? this is definitely illegal streaming”
  • would read issues of the walking dead after high school in the store because he was broke
  • to a friend in the comments: “i can’t respond to your meme, im live”
  • been living in his apartment for eight months and hasn’t fully moved in
  • gave a shoutout to finn from stranger things because they have the same agent
  • doesn’t know anything about the show so far other than that he was cast!

ended the live with:

  • i’m finna be beast boy

The friend word was used a lot this issue and surprisingly no one was harmed while saying it. Progress is being made.

(Also Beast Boy’s nickname for Jon is GREAT.)

i blame @fishfingersandjellybabies​ for convincing me that everyone should be damian’s parent. everyone.

between resurrection and kryptonian-esque super powers and dick’s “death,” (preboot) kori stepping in just makes sense

and i was inspired by damian’s fussiness in wanting to keep his hair long, so here is the compromise

GUYS ITS A FLASHBACK

starfire born sexy yesterday? I don’t think so.

warning: if you try to rebut this post with something along the lines of “but starfire as a character was meant to be objectified/eye candy/etc” I will not hesitate to embarrass you and your poorly constructed argument. george perez has definitely been gross about starfire in the past (see his interview excerpts on bill walko’s Titans Tower site) but marv wolfman strived to make her something more and succeeded, which is important and what I’ve used to construct this. perez’s past comments bear little relevance here so please, stay out of it if that’s all you’re going to push on me.

so what is born sexy yesterday? to keep it short, born sexy yesterday means a character with high intelligence but with the experience, mind, and personality of a child in the body of (most often) a grown woman who is usually highly sexualized and objectified. it’s a trope that crops up in pop culture time and time again and to guide the woman with the innocent of a child is the hero, a man ordinary in every way except for the fact that to the Born Sexy, he seems to possess all knowledge and she typically falls in love with him because of it. 

at first glance, starfire fulfills some of these requirements. 

innocent of the ways of our world?

yes. 

scene where she’s innocently naked/doesn’t understand clothing?

that’s there, too.

however, she never falls into the category of acting like a child (or being physically born yesterday like The Fifth Element’s Leeloo and other science fiction women who fall victim to this trope) and shows herself to be incredibly competent in several situations. her innocence and naivete in social situations on earth come not from having the mind of a child but from cultural dissonance. she not only has knowledge of how to fly a starship: 

she’s incredibly skilled at its operation and can outmaneuver people who operate starships more frequently than she ever has (as she was enslaved for six years and before that was training to be a warrior, so this situation boasts of an impressive memory and intelligence).

While she fell in love with the first man she met, she didn’t idolize him. She didn’t excuse his treatment of her or let him continually treat her like she was an idiot – koriand’r stood up to him and to her other teammates who believed her intellect was lesser because she couldn’t understand their cultural values:

she’s proved to be someone who can handle herself, does not need others to hold her hand but relies on them because she loves them, and has a strong sense of self no matter the situation. 

koriand’r also isn’t limited to having only one relationship and her scope of the world isn’t limited to just dick grayson - her relationships with garfield logan and victor stone are as deep and meaningful as her relationship with dick (this is referring to how Born Sexies are often only allowed to have a relationship/friendship with the male hero of their story and no other men, this is not discounting her deep friendships with both donna troy and raven): 

kory isn’t a perfect subversion of this trope but she is an incredibly strong one that stands the test of time and continues to inspire me.
