men's marathon

Every Now and Then I Fall Apart

A fic I posted on AO3 about a month ago before I had a tumblr

Fandom/Pairing: Batman-JayTim

Rating: T

Length: 1995 Words

The first time Tim Drake cries over Jason Todd, Jason doesn’t know about it. Jason doesn’t know because he’s dead.

Tim Drake stands unseen in the back watching Jason’s casket lower into the ground and remembers. Remembers photographing Jason on his first night out as Robin. Remembers how he could tell this was a new Robin because he moved differently from Dick Grayson. Where his flips weren’t nearly as graceful as his predecessor, his punches were much more powerful.

And here goes the last adaptation on my Holmes marathon, what a journey mate. This little mini-series, six episodes six minutes long each. 

Such a shame it doesn’t get enough recognition, it is from the same creator that did that infamous *sigh* gloryhole cartoon back in the day. Now it came back even better.

Look at that art style and animation, it’s so dope. The music is great, there’s even a whole case going on. Pretty funny, lots of cliffhangers and references.

And as always, besides like two female characters, EVERYONE else was voiced by ONE SINGLE GUY. 

Check this out, it’s pretty cool, and made with lots of love. 

AT LAST

In 45 days, I’ll be with @siriuslymeg, and we’re gonna drink and cry about old men and marathon all of GF together. I’m gonna get to watch it FINALLY!! I’ve been holding out for over a year now. I’m so ready. HOPEFULLY we’ll make it up to Wildwood, NJ for a day or two so we can cry about those old men on the beach. In public. 

It’s gonna be AWESOME.

Bobbi Gibb Led The Way For Women At The Boston Marathon

It’s been 50 years since the first woman ran the Boston Marathon.

In April 1966, Roberta “Bobbi” Gibb rode a bus from San Diego to her parents’ home in Winchester, Massachusetts. It was the day before the Boston Marathon and she told her mom and dad, “I’m running.”

“My father actually thought that I was deranged, that I was delusional,” Gibb recalled. “‘The poor girl, she thinks she’s going to run the marathon.’ He was afraid I would kill myself or hurt myself if I actually tried, cause I hadn’t told them that I was training cause I knew they’d think I was nuts and they’d try to stop me.”

But how her parents felt was the least of Roberta Gibb’s worries. The Amateur Athletic Union regulations, written by men of course, kept women out of races like the Boston Marathon.

“The men who organized the race at Boston were following the national AAU rules, which said women couldn’t run more than 1.5 miles,” explained Amby Burfoot, editor-at-large at Runners World. “They thought they were being wonderfully paternalistic in taking care of the poor little girls and women who needed all the help they could possibly get, so let’s not force them or ask them to do something like run long distances, that would just be wrong.”

Burfoot’s new book, “First Ladies of Running,” documents how Gibb and 21 other women changed that.

“I’ve always loved to run, even when I was little kid,” said Gibb. “I was a toddler and my dad used to take me to a local park and I’d see the green field and I’d just feel full of joy and I’d run across the field – and I just kept running. I ran all through adolescence.”

On Tuesday, April 19, 1966, Gibb’s parents dropped her near the Boston Marathon starting line. She was wearing her brother’s Bermuda shorts and a hoodie to hide her long hair.

She hid in the bushes until the race started, waited a bit for a group of men to pass and then jumped in the pack, worried about how the male runners might respond.

“To my great delight, they said ‘Gee, wow, I wish my girlfriend would run,’ ‘I wish my wife would run,’ and they were friendly and I said ‘I’m afraid they will throw me out if I take the hood off and they see I’m a woman,’ and they said ‘We won’t let them.’ So they were protective too. I felt like they were my brothers and we were all in this together. And there was this incredible mutual respect and friendship.”

Gibb, known by her nickname Bobbi, finished that race in 3 hours and 21 minutes.

“Bobbi broke the tape first and then slowly but surely, steadily more women followed and things kept going and getting better and better and more women,” Burfoot said. “Eventually there was the big movement to finally introduce an Olympic marathon into the 1984 Olympic Games, and so that got pushed through.”

Bobbi Gibb never got to run in the Olympic race she inspired, but she went on to do so much more in her life, working as a lawyer, a neuroscientist and an artist.

And it all started with her father on the green fields of a local park.

“I found in running a kind of freedom,” she said. “I guess I was running away from some of the restraints of our culture. I just never stopped. I just loved it.”

Unpopular x-men opinions (film)

I can’t stand Storm in the films. She is useless.

I will never and could never ship Wolverine and Storm together. Blah.

It annoys the shit out of me how every female charcter has the hots for Logan.

I love Patrick Stewart’s version of Charles, but can’t stand James McAvoy’s verion.

They wasted Cyclops and James Marsden’s talent.

I prefer the orignal trilogy’s Mystique over Jen Lawrence (even though I like Jen)

I hate how Magneto is always reduced to the cartoon villain at the end of the films. He has a solid point and then he does something that goes completely against what he knows to be right.

I think it is bull that they used the new cast instead of the original cast for the Apocalypse storyline.

They should be making another film with sir pat and ian Mckellen instead of the new cast.

They completely underutilized Rogue in the films.

It’s bull that Rogue and Gambit can’t be in a film together.

Making Emma Frost part of the older crew was dumb. So was killing her.

Even though I understand they screwed up Deadpool, I actually liked Origins.

I get sick of seeing people call Scott the asshole in the films when Wolverine is actually kind of the prick of the two.

The line about what happens to a toad when it gets struck by lightning…should have never been spoken on screen.

Didnt like Beast in last Stand or First Class, but I liked him in DOFP (both versions)

Kitty and Bobby (blah)

Not really an opinion, but I’m begging that Colossus is better in Deadpool.


…yeah, having an X-men marathon and these are just some of the issues I have.
