look at your faaace

Comic: Batman #11

This would be higher up if it didn’t come right on the heels of that dumbass punch, which, meh. It’s still a nice moment, though, and a nice acknowledgement by Bruce. (Of course, right after this, a DC executive busted through Scott Snyder’s door and sprayed him with cold water, screaming “Dude, are you outta your mind?! GAYYYYYYY!”, and things haven’t been the same since.)

4.) “You make me proud.”/“You’ve got a handle on things down here.”

These would also rank higher if I had actually read these comics and knew more about the context, which I sadly don’t. Both of these scenes are very lovely, and the real star here is Dick’s reaction. Aww, look at his faaace! (And Bruce’s leetle smiles uWu;;)

3.) “Not with your … finesse.”

Comic: Robin Year One

I’m not really a big fan of Robin: Year One, because I have 99 problems with how Chuck Dixon writes Bruce and Dick’s relationship (and Dick and Babs’ relationship. And …). But I like how Batman, who is quite reserved in this comic, can’t help but be super impressed by Robin’s skill and talent. It’s a sweet moment in a comic that’s not full of them.

2.) “To me, they’re beautiful.”

Batman compliments Robin’s punning prowess. I would be a filthy liar if I didn’t put this near the top of my list, I love this. XD It may be sincere, it may be tongue-in-cheek, it’s probably both, but you can tell that it makes Bruce so happy to see Dick do his thing.

And my personal number one favorite compliment from Bruce to Dick iiis …

1.) “You never let me down, did you?”

Comic: Batman RIP

I don’t know why this simple acknowledgement, worded as a question, affects me so much, but it does. Maybe it’s because this is one of my favorite comics in general. Maybe it’s because both Bruce and Dick have previously went through hell in this story to get to each other. It could also be because Bruce is still in the process of regaining his memories, and it’s as if it’s coming back to him how much he can trust Dick as he sees him.

There is something about the simplicity of this line that simply gets me. Grant Morrison always understood how to write Bruce and Dick as partners who are really close and who truly rely on and trust each other, and it’s both in this line, and in Dick’s retort where he tells Bruce he looks like shit. XD

WHY YOU NEED TO STOP AND WATCH PRINCESS TUTU RIGHT NOW

DO YOU LIKE FAIRY TALES? MAGICAL GIRLS? EXTENSIONAL META IN YOUR ANIME? WELL THEN HAVE I GOT A SHOW FOR YOU!

THIS IS OUR PROTAGONIST, AHIRU. ISN’T SHE ADORABLE?

SHE ATTENDS A BOARDING SCHOOL WHERE SHE’S PART OF THE BALLET CLASS ALONG WITH HER TWO FRIENDS LILLIE AND PIQUE.

ALSO THEIR BALLET TEACHER IS A CAT. LIKE, LEGITLY.

WHEN HIS STUDENTS FALL BEHIND IN CLASS, HE LIKES TO THREATEN THEM WITH MARRIAGE (NO, I AM NOT MAKING THIS UP).

AND HERE IS OUR PRINCE

HE HAS AN AVERSION TO PANTS DON’T ASK ME WHY. (ALSO HE HAS NO HEART. IT IS SAD)

AND HERE ARE THE OTHER TWO SUPER DUPER IMPORTANT CHARACTERS WHO ARE IMPORTANT AND YOU WILL HOLD CLOSE TO YOUR HEART.

THE LOVELY RIVAL RUE

AND FAKIR (LOOK AT THAT FAAACE)

RUE IS DATING MYTHO, AND FAKIR IS MYTHO’S CHILDHOOD BEST FRIEND.

SO AHIRU ADMIRES MYTHO FOR HIS DANCING SKILLS, BUT SHE ALSO THINKS HE LOOKS SO LONELY. SHE WISHES HE WASN’T SO LONELY, LIKE THE PRINCE IN HER DREAMS.

WHICH IS WHEN THIS CREEPY GUY COMES IN:

GET OUT OF MY FACE, DROSSELMEYER AHHHH

ANYWAY DROSSELMEYER IS ALL “YOU WANNA SAVE THE PRINCE?” AND AHIRU IS ALL “…YEAH”

AND THEN BOOM! MAGICAL GIRL

PRINCESS TUTU! WHO WANTS TO COLLECT THE SHATTERED SHARDS OF THE PRINCE’S HEART.

BUT WHY SHOULD I WATCH THIS ANIME, YOU ASK. WHY, I SAY?

BESIDES THE FACT THAT THE ART AND ANIMATION IS GORGEOUS?

LOOK AT THAT GORGEOUS ANIMATION. LOOK AT THE PRETTY. LOOK AT IT!

FOR ONE BECAUSE THE BALLET USED IS ACTUAL LEGIT BALLET, AND EVERY PIECE OF MUSIC USED IS FROM WHATEVER BALLET INSPIRED THE EPISODE AT HAND, AND IT IS ALL SO BEAUTIFUL AND GRACEFUL.

AHHHH!

BECAUSE IT’S A MAGICAL GIRL ANIME ABOUT BALLET AND FAIRY TALES AND STARTS OFF HAPPY AND SHINY AND ADORABLE AND THEN TAKES A SUDDEN DARK TURN, LIKE ALL FAIRY TALES. BECAUSE IT’S A SHOW ABOUT DESTINY AND WHETHER OR NOT YOU SHOULD ACCEPT YOUR FATE OR FIGHT AGAINST IT FOR A NEW FATE. IT’S ABOUT REDEMPTION AND HOPE AGAINST ALL POSSIBLE ODDS.

BECAUSE THE CHARACTERS ARE BEAUTIFULLY FLAWED AND HUMAN. BECAUSE NO CHARACTER IS WITHOUT THEIR FLAWS OR GOODNESS.

AND DID I MENTION ANIMALS ARE PEOPLE IN THIS?

NO ONE QUESTIONS IT, EVER. IT’S GREAT.
