cranes are family

“Family quarrels are bitter things. They don’t go according to any rules. They’re not like aches or wounds, they’re more like splits in the skin that won’t heal because there’s not enough material.” 

–F. Scott Fitzgerald

I looked it up. The crane. It stands for familial obligation. Watching out for your own. Maybe it’s my turn to watch out for you.

sephirose  asked:

Do you have any headcanons on the Keeny family at all?

Do I have Keeny headcannons? You’re asking me, the Mistress of Fear, if I have headcannons for my favorite Scarecrow comic?? Well, I hope you’re sitting down because you’re about to get bombarded with a ton of headcannons! 🎃


- In the comic,Batman investigates a young boy’s room that holds a giant teddy bear, and it might seem like this was Crane’s room at first glace, but I’ve thought of something more depressing. (This is less headcanon, more than a heavily researched theory, but I’m including it here because I stand behind it 110%) Jon actually lived in a much smaller and probably cramped room located in the attic. I’ve already posted about that in much more detail. You can read about it here

- As a child, Jonathan owned several vintage pull string toys, all of which were hand-me-downs and had been kept in storage. His favorite was an early 20th century wooden raven on wheels. As a young boy, he pulled it around with him while playing outside near the Aviary. It acted much like the Scarecrow that he would become in his later years, tricking the local crows into staying away from him. Unfortunately, when Great Grandmother Keeny learned of his “satanic trickery” she took away the wooden raven and used it as fire kindling. Great Granny also burned his copy of Ulysses, A stuffed Scarecrow he knitted, and sometimes even the clothes on his back.

-The Keeny Manor is huge! It is at least three stories tall at some segments, and includes and attic and basement/cellar. The Manor is most likely shaped in a bracket form, and jets out in multiple directions. Back in it’s heyday, the manor was surrounded by gardens that rivaled Eden. The Chapel, which had nightly services, also served as an Aviary. It was full of God’s most royal birds, Snow white doves, Alabaster Egrets and Regal Herons to name a few.

-Jonathan’s mother, Karen Keeny is often described by the fandom as a dirty whore. Unfortunately this is the fandom taking the words directly from Grandmother Kenny’s (Marion’s) mouth. I like to believe she wasn’t a diseased beast. Karen was the last female in the Keeny line, and she was the product of of her time, sheltered. Her mother and grandmother were born with different ideals and different mindsets when it came to men. They were always told to obey. Now, this isn’t the post to rant about that, but I honestly don’t believe she has some “disease” that she transferred onto Jonathan. The only disease here was the lifestyle she ran away from.

- Speaking of Karen, I like to believe she might’ve cared for Jonathan had she been given the chance. We’re not given a lot of insight to what happens, and we have to only infer that her mother and grandmother shun her for her misdeeds. I do not believe she willingly ran away. Years later, Karen has a child with the deadbeat Charlie and she clearly loves the little girl….so perhaps she might’ve loved Jonathan too.

-Do to her age and arthritis, Great Grandmother Keeny is very limited in her mobility and what she can and cannot do. It’s stated in the comic that she fears Jonathan as he grows older, knowing that she can’t stop him from roaming around the Manor. Marion left shortly after his birth, leaving Mary alone in raising him. It’s easily apparent that it within the huge manor, there was no way she could chase him down the halls or up and down stairs.  This is when the punishments began, and she would punish him for virtually anything. If he didn’t do enough chores that day, if he talked back to her, if he wasn’t home from school at the appropriate time, if his clothes had dust on them, you name it. She had to find a way to control him for as long as possible

-While Great Granny Keeny could still cook amazing meals for herself, she really didn’t want to bake up the most elaborate foods for her great grandson. No sense in helping the boy grow strong, right? Best to keep him weak and fragile for as long as possible. She feed him old gruel and porridge made out of rotten vegetables and meats. To this day, Jonathan still can’t stand the sight of a bowl of porridge, lest he gag. 

-As a child, Jonathan didn’t get to celebrate holidays, it wasn’t just Halloween. Ever since the Keeny wealth ran dry, there was little money left for such extravagant purchases. The only gifts he was ever “blessed with” were the rare replacement dress shirts. The Manor never smelled of turkeys during thanksgiving, or pine trees around Christmas time.  Jonathan never knew what it was like to be normal.

“After Mom died, when it was just you and me, I remember having trouble sleeping, never knowing where you were, but when I’d wake up in the morning there’d be this paper bird, an origami crane, sitting next to my bed and I never knew what it meant exactly, but I figured it was your way of letting me know you were checking in on me. Anyway… I looked it up, the crane, stands for familial obligation; watching out for your own. Maybe it’s my turn to watch out for you.”

Don’t miss the winter premiere of Twisted tonight February 11th (9:00 - 10:00 PM ET/PT) on ABC Family where shocking truths are revealed and new secrets are shared in “Dead Men Tell Big Tales.” #SpreadTheWord

So i was going to add to that Dragon Ball zombie AU stupidoomdoodles started, but after finishing this i kind of realize this doesn’t exactly scream ‘zombie survival horror’. So instead idk. some kind of alternative version of Lunch and Tenshinhan? I like the idea betaruga had that he’s an atoning mafia hitman, so i ran with it.

Lunch is Lunch. Still a thief, although she and him ran into each other in the past, occasionally working for the rival Turtle family. When everything went to hell she was determined to find him. They would have cut a bloody swath across the country, with assassiny stuff and her giant stockpile of weapons that she may or may not have ripped off of the Crane family.
