after missing out on three consecutive HP-related days of celebration (20th anniversary, Harry’s birthday, and 19 years later) due to long work hours and poor health, i must admit I feel like a sort of failure as a fan artist. let me seeth in my self pity and sense of isolation from the rest of you partying folks with a doodle of Albus doing the same thing
I need more batman media but I don't know what to watch or where to watch it and Netflix took off Young Justice and Justice League :(:( do you have any fic recs or fun facts
to follow if you haven’t already followed them, the first three write FREAKING
AMAZING fanfic and the fourth creates THE BEST fanart I have literally sat and scrolled through these blogs for hours
@camsthisky (good GOSH I love her she writes so much about Dick Grayson)
OH MY GOSH. I
love this story so freaking much. Ok,
imagine if Jason Todd, after coming back from the dead and going through all
that stuff with the Lazarus Pit and training, goes after Dick Grayson to get
his revenge on Bruce. Except when he
shows up at Dick’s apartment, ready to kill the Golden Son, he finds something
completely unexpected. Jason has a lot
of issues, Dick has a lot of issues (courtesy of the Blockbuster incident). I have read and reread this story countless
times, and I can never not cry because I love my broken sons so much. There is a lot of anger, some cursing, much
regret, and brothers being brothers. And Dick is the sweetest most protective [redacted because spoiler] and Jason has a mushy heart after all. It
can stand as complete but I think the author is writing more? Also, either before or after, or both, go to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qqeNxdyp5CE
and listen to the song. It is my new
favorite song and CAN YOU IMAGINE DICK SINGING IT OH MY GOSH
3. the road
will only be wide (the rain will never stop falling)
This fic is a quiet moment of beauty and rest for Dick
and Damian. Damian draws, and Dick
watches his talented little bro. There
is sunlight. You skin will clear and
your crops will grow and any heartache you have ever had will be healed like
There is a problem in the Batcave, as in, younger
versions of the Batfam keep turning up.
It’s absolutely fantastic, and one of my favorite things is younger
Jason being SO done with his older self and calling him out on stuff and being all protective of his brothers. It gets better and better with every chapter.
this story is not finished yet and the author takes waaay long to post updates
on it but she has promised not to abandon it soo…It is Nightwing-centric, with
a whole mess of comic Teen Titans making appearances. The author has written a lot of stories about
a world where Dick became a Talon, and in this tale Talon-on-the-run winds up
on Earth-1 and Nightwing is trying to figure out who this apparent clone of his
is. Talon Dick has always intrigued me,
and it is interesting seeing him and Nightwing face off.
HOLY HECK this is one of my favorite Jason Todd fanfics EVER. I love the description by the author “The one
where Dick bleeds a lot and Jason argues with everybody.” Jason is in the wrong spot at the wrong time,
ie. He finds Dick bleeding to death and is forced to save him. Tim and Damian make appearances. Jason has anger issues. That doesn’t stop him from caring. Bruce and Jason hash things out in the most
beautiful (painful) way.
which Dick confronts Damian about his practice of taking weapons to school, and
also gets slightly distracted by the idea of living in a vardo. I love this story because it shows the best
way to parent Damian—not by telling him no “because I said so” but by
explaining and debating things like he is smart and capable.
This is THE BEST Nightwing fan film I have
ever seen. I love the Dick Grayson in it—he’s
got acrobatics, sounds like Jesse McCartney (Robin/Nightwing’s VA in YJ), and is quite handsome. He fights, gets the stuffing beat out of him
and keeps getting back up, has a bit of a temper, loves Barbara—perfection. Watch it, you won’t regret it. (Also Jason is there yay! I will take him in any capacity I can get. And I kinda really like the actor for Bruce?)
My favorite Jason Todd
fanfilm!!! Heavily featuring Tim
Drake! Look this adaption is fab, I love
the actors and the dialogue and the fight between Jason and Tim (spoiler?) As far as I know they are trying to put
together a second episode. Watch the
video where Jason Todd tries to get people to donate money for it, its
3. Batman The Animated Series is on Netflix till
September 1st. I’m in the
second season and love it a lot…Alfred is so freaking sassy!
It’s just five minutes
and doesn’t have any dialogue, and it doesn’t come close to deserving an Oscar, but dang it it’s hard to find Damian stuff…and also seeing a little
kid running around in the Robin costume made me realize that there is nothing I
want more than to see Damian Wayne on the big screen, being all angry assassin
kid, and Dick Grayson capturing him in a hug…
5. Gotham on Netflix
I am pretty sure you already watch this? But if not, DO! It is AMAZING. I love it so much, especially Bruce and Alfred and Selina Kyle
E. Some things from Batman: Dark Victory
Okay I know he is a talented young acrobat and all but how the FUDGE did Dick get up on that chandelier?! the kid can truly fly (yeah yeah, the stairs probably lead up to a hallway floor/balcony that Dick leapt off of but still) I wonder how many grey hairs the kid gave Alfred in those first weeks alone
On dark days I like to remember the time bby birb Dick Grayson caved in the Joker’s cheek with a well-placed kick. My nine or ten year old son then proceeded to smash in the Joker’s teeth with a stick a few minutes later and it was amazing
You think I lied?? Nah my son Dick Grayson was cracking teeth and bones and witty puns from Day 1. Go Robin!!!
Okay so just look at this picture. Bby Dick is SO FREAKING TINY!!! also very intense. OMG Batman’s fists are as big as his first son’s head! *cue a very many feels in my heart*
F. Random things I am including because I feel like it, and they all revolve around Dick Grayson mostly because he is my fave so…
1. Apparently some official websites say that Nightwing’s martial arts specialty is Aikido. I do not think that word means what they think it means
2. “I close my eyes now for a few moments and I can see my parents riding the air current with me. Forever young. Forever strong. Their faces wide with excitement, big smiles on their faces, enjoying the adrenaline surge even more than I do. And there is one thing I am sure of … my parents would be proud of my life.” (Nightwing, Nightwing #141, 2008)
[Talking about Blüdhaven] “It’s a hopeless case. A lost cause. A town so mired in corruption and sin that it’s drowning … When Batman sent me here, I thought I’d solve one case and book. But then I realized … if I could make a difference here – well, that’d be something. This filthy old town needs me…. Surrounded by a dozen of my worst enemies. No way out. Nowhere to hide. The little brat was right. I do love it. (Nightwing, Nightwing Secret Files #1, 1999)
4. There once was a dumb writer who thought killing Nightwing for real would be a good idea, and he tried writing toward that end, but everybody else was like hahahaha NO
5. I used to hate when fic writers would shorten Damian’s name to Dami (kind of like how I majorly dislike when people shorten Sirius Black’s name to Siri, he is not an iPhone gosh). But then I read a post on tumblr that said something about Dami actually meaning something in Arabic, something like blood or life-blood or heart blood…I can’t exactly remember what and maybe it isn’t even true but I choose to believe it is and that Dick knows exactly what it means and he calls Damian Dami as a way to show how special he is, how much Dick loves him. Because Damian is his little brother/son and means the absolute world to Dick. And Damian, though he pretends to despise all nicknames, absolutely LOVES that Dick calls him this
I, Robert Jacob Sugden, take you, Aaron Dingle. (Aaron chuckles) What?
Nothing. I just wasn't expecting you to do the whole 'till death do us part' thing.
Well, that's how it works, idiot. (takes a breath) I take you, Aaron Dingle, to be my wedded husband. I promise to be faithful. To put you first. To make you happy. Too keep trying to be better for you, because... you deserve it.
I, Aaron Dingle... take you, Robert Jacob Sugden... to be my wedded husband... I can't really think of anything else to say. I'm sorry, I'm rubbish at this. But you know...
I know. (forehead kiss *dead*) It doesn't matter.
No. It does matter. I've never had this with anyone before. I never thought I'd have this with anyone. And I never thought I'd have it with you. Now I've gone and messed it all up.
I promise to be better as well. To trust you. To never let you down ever again. I promise I'm gonna be the best husband I can be.
Hey, you're already the best husband I've had.
It’s really painful when someone that you would have never considered giving any kind of attention to starts flirting and becoming obsessed with you,wanting to be with you and to talk to you every day only for them to get tired of you years later once they actually have you…

**This is not official or anything. I’m only doing this for myself as a sort of fun activity to do during my Reading Week.
However, if anyone actually wanted to do it, feel free. And if you really want you can use the tag #foxsnakeweek but you can tag it as literally anything you want.
Also I’ve never made a “Ship Week” before nor joined one for that matter…so apparently there are descriptions for each day and I’m just like…interpret the title to whatever you want. Draw whatever you want. Write whatever you want. Be creative.
So in this moment, Olivia pretty much totally dismissed the fake boyfriend set-up having much of anything to do with Fitz, and placed it squarely on her and what she wants and needs. And apparently she wanted and needed Jake to be with her as part of this. Fitz and his feelings about it be damned. As @jamaicanheauxmentioned quite a while ago, “Olivia only pined for [Fitz] when she was within his presence” (and sometimes not even then…). Otherwise she was totally fine, because…well, we know why. But boy can she pine for some Jake. And as I’m about to ramble on about, no it’s not because of a dysfunctional or crippling dependency. She wants him in her life, and in many ways, she needs him, but not in order to basically function or live her life.
*has a history of homophobic representation, and biphobia*
please fix this
