Matty I love you but you're killing me here. 2 truths 1 lie, all the quots, all the hot gifs (where do you even GET them?) My friends and I are dying a slowwww death and loving it... now kill us some more and please give us a snippet of the next chapter. A paragraph. A dialogue. Hell at this point we'll take a sentence. JUST GIVE US SOMETHING. You're THE BEST, hon! *_*
Well, I just sat down to write a while ago, so here it is, for you and your friends. More than a sentence. I hope this happily kills you some more :)
He stood before the bombed remains of her car, his back to her, the jacket of his suit clinging to his muscles as they tightened.
Felicity stood quietly against the tree in plain sight and watched him from behind, wanting to see his reaction, needing to see his reaction.
Because if she was going to gamble with this man, she needed to know her cards.
She hadn’t spoken to him since that last text she’d sent him. Her phone had been switched off, and she’d made Amara promise to give her a few hours alone to figure things out. But she’d been missing for hours, and she needed to see his reaction. Because if he gave her even a sliver of hope, and even though she really hadn’t figured anything out, she knew she wasn’t going to run away. For once in her life, she wanted to stay.
His back moved as he breathed, his hands clenched beside him as he kept looking at her dead car. The darkness clung to his frame, only the flash of lightning illuminating him brightly for split seconds before leaving him standing alone in the dark again in the graveyard.
Felicity swallowed the pain rising in her chest but didn’t make a move, knowing instinctively that even a tiny motion would make him aware of her.
So, she just kept watching him, waiting for him to do something.
He touched her car.
But he did.
He did when he thought no one was watching.
He did it when he thought he was completely alone.
Felicity blinked at the stinging in her eyes as she saw his big, rough hand move across the charred remains, the sliver of hope a fragment now. But she knew.She had seen.
And she was going to fight him, fight for him, like he’d fought for her. She was going to gamble. She was going to throw herself off the cliff and hope he would catch her. Because she didn’t see how they could move on if she didn’t. God knew, he wouldn’t take the first step.
Taking a deep breath in, she took that first step forward towards him into the darkness.
dc universe classics is ending w/ series 20 (CnC nekron) and rebranding its name to dc universe all-stars.
how exciting. (sarcasm)
i don’t see the big deal nor did i understand (or care) about the matty infinite earths subscription. if DCUC decided to pull out in 2012, they are fucked. especially w/ marvel legends making a comeback!!! it’d be a pretty stupid move.
anyhoo…you’ll still find them at your local retail stores and LCS so that’s a plus.
but here’s the line up for the first mix…
i don’t know anything about this guy since i’m not a big dc comic guy. he looks cool and he’s an orange latern, its good enough for me.
wut? why!? way to start out w/ reissues…
flashpoint plastic man.
meh. looks plain….not one of the best flashpoint designs.
he’s got some big ass ears. i’ll probably do a head swap w/ the dcd one.
not thoroughly impressed with mattel’s new “dc universe all-stars” but it looks like i’ll be picking up superboy prime and larfleeze….
(btw, i need to preorder the new marvel legends set when it comes out…)
My SDCC Cedar arrived today! I decided to take some pics of the box since I haven’t seen anyone else do that yet. Sorry for the poor quality and glare on some of them, I don’t have a whitebox or camera anymore so I just used sunlight and my phone.
She comes in a large cardboard box, the cardboard is a bit thicker than the cardboard used in the normal doll boxes. That curtain pattern is all over the box. The back has the same image as the front, except Cedar’s hand isn’t pulling the curtain back. The bottom left corner on the front of the box says “Adult Collector.”
Their is a sort of sleeve that covers the main stage. It is really quite beautiful. The stage itself presents the doll very well! I really love the images of Raven, Apple, and Maddy, they are really well done! The back of the box has an image of Cedar and the plot behind the doll’s concept. The top of the box has a handle exposed, so you can move Cedar’s hands up and down without deboxing her!
If anyone is interested in the instruction and storage manual that same with her, just let me know and I’ll post that too. I really like that she’s meant to be displayed in box but she also allows for play as well. There are actually clips in the stage that will hold her in place after you remove the plastic ties. The pink ribbons connect to loops poking out of her body, the loops are removeable. She’s still available on Matty Collector, she’s online only! You don’t need to be going to SDCC to get her, I ordered her online on the nineteenth and she was shipped to me.
DAMN YOU MATTEL. I thought I was done with my DC Universe Batman collection for now. But now you’ve gone and Put out a Catman & Yellow Lantern Scarecrow. YOU DIDN’T EVEN PUT OUT A REGULAR SCARECROW! But Whatevs, I bought that bitch. Now for Catman…
