not even robin was on here

Can Damian and Jon just become friends already, please?

Look, I get it: Damian is bad with emotions, bad with friends, and is just bad at being a normal kid. That’s his character, his shtick, I understand that. But also, he CHANGES. He knows when what he’s been doing is wrong and he actively changes himself for the better, however hard it is for him. That’s the whole POINT of his solo series Robin: Son of Batman. He’s done it even in the recent Teen Titans run (issues 1-5, I haven’t read the ones that came after that, yet).

That said, I also understand why he’s been hostile to Jon these first times they’ve been together. He’s made it a point to emphasize the fact that they’re NOT friends. Okay, man, fine. That works cuz you guys just met, and you’re the son of batman, the most paranoid guy in the multiverse. But here’s the thing, Damian being an ass to Jon all the time is not gonna be enjoyable for long.

The next and only logical step here story wise is that Damian will change his attitude with Jon and just be actually friendly with him. What I want, and what a lot of fans would like, I reckon, is that Damian will have, over a story arc or something, come to realize that Jon isn’t just his unwilling ally or a tool to be used and manipulated -  Jon is also his valued friend.

Damian: “Jon, why are you still here? You’ve no idea how dangerous this is! Are you trying to get yourself killed?”

Jon: “Idiot. I’m doing this because we’re friends!”

anonymous asked:

Wait, you think Babe (in the series) is tall? I always imagined him as very average. How tall is he really? I'm so confused 😳

Maybe it’s just because in his introduction he towers over Bill while Bill is sitting down, but he’s always just really tall in my mind! Like, when I imagine Baberoe height differences, it’s always Gene as the shorter one – but, nope, they’re actually close to the same height! 

Then you look at pictures like this:

That’s series!Babe standing next to the real Babe (and Bill with his own counterpart) and you can see how tall Robin Laing is compared to Babe – a whole head taller, even with Babe wearing a hat! Granted, Babe probably got shorter with age but still. Also, comparing Robin and FJH’s heights, in the series Babe and Bill are just about the same height. (IRL Bill was a lot taller than Babe, though it’s not obvious here.)

Here are a few more pictures for height reference, but it’s clear series!Babe is a pretty tall dude:

(He’s taller than Toye! Joe Toye has to bounce to put his hands on his shoulders!)

So yeah, I guess he’s not the tallest (he’s a shrimp next to Bull) but he’s just a bit above average!

Because I am feeling ridiculously fannish about Wonder Woman at the moment, and because I am a nerd with too much time on her hands on a Sunday evening, here are a few interesting tidbits for you taken from the Wonder Woman IMDB page (with a little help from Wikipedia). 

There are 17 named Amazons in the credits (plus 15 actresses listed as guards, warriors, or townspeople.)  11 of the 17 named characters have their ages listed. 

Average age = 41.4 years

Oldest Amazon = 57 years

Youngest Amazon = 26 years

7 Amazons played by actresses 40 or older

Connie Nielsen (Hippolyta) and Robin Wright (Antiope) are both 51 years old.

Of the 32 women listed as playing Amazons in the credits, half if not more are women of color (not all the actresses had photos on their page).

These women are of all shapes and sizes.  There are stuntwomen, personal trainers and at least one boxer.

tl;dr = when you put women in charge of making a movie about a female superhero and the culture in which she is raised, you get something more realistic than 85% of the movies out there - superhero related or not.

R&V 4 o’clock ANALYSIS:  Who is the song really about aside from Jimin?

Do you all remember the moon & sun tattoo made of henna that V had in Hawaii ??? (Cr to @wingstyles) This means Taehyung thought of the song since then if not before. We always tought, why the sun and the moon? This song hold the answers.

WHO IS THE MOON?

It is said Taehyung wanted to write a song while thinking of Jimin as an element in it: 

If we consider Jimin being the moon. The lyrics of 4 o’clock “I wrote a long, long letter to the moon“. Maybe he meant by writing a letter about whenever he vented to Jimin about his pain. Also In namjoon’s rap “I collect myself that’s shattered beneath the moonlight“. Aren’t friends the ones who keep as whole when we are breaking? Or Taehyung was really in the park alone looking at the moon while thinking of someone, but who?

WHO IS THE SONG ABOUT?

“It would not be brighter than you, but I lighted a small candle at a dusky park … where are you” Why would taehyung light a candle in a park? The ritual of lighting a candle to pay tribute to a life ‘passed’ has long been a part of many cultures.  Keeping a light burning in remembrance signifies that the memory still lives on and burns bright.  It is a ritual that promotes reflection and signifies remembrance. So maybe the song is at the end about Taehyung’s grandmother who passed away. V said that Jimin stood by his side the most during those hard times. The soothing ballad and the tone and feelings expressed in the song come to support this theory.

WHO IS THE MOON CHILD?

In rapmon’s part he raps about a moon child “I call you moonchild. The definition of a moon child is someone born under the astrological sign of Cancer. However when Rapmon says “We are the children of the moon“, knowing that no BTS member is a Cancer, we are left with the other meaning:  A unique individual, often described as being slightly crazy and over emotional. “Moonchildren sometimes say strange things”. Speaking of which isn’t Taehyung always described as the weirdest and most unique one in BTS?! Namjoon write the lyrics as if he is consoling Tae about his lost one as the lyrics says “Yes we’re livin and dying at the same time” aking him to accept the fact that all humans leave earth someday. V was so sad when his grandmother passed away because she was the one who raised him. So RM continues “but you can open your eyes for now” Trying to help him to move on

THE NOCTURAL BIRD

The lyrics speak of a bird “A nameless bird that sings“. Normaly we are used to birds singing during the day but Robins are insectivorous birds that are well adapted to foraging in dim light , and even continue to feed under artificial light well into the night (like the one in a park at night). It is one of the earliest birds to start the dawn chorus and one of the last to stop singing at night. With this tendency to be active at low light, robins can be easily triggered into full song by a streetlight or any kind of floodlighting. Since robins keep territories all year round, they also sing all round the year. I also searched if the species is available in south korea and it is HERE. But how does Taehyung knows about the existance of such a bird. Did this situation really occur? he  will interpret the singing of the bird as if he was too searching for that person “A nameless bird that sings where are you

In memory of Taehyung’s grandmother. May she rests in peace.

Robin Hood restaurant in Madrid, Spain, isn’t your average restaurant. Sure, it may be your average restaurant for breakfast and lunch daily but during evenings, the restaurant closes to regular paying customers and only caters to the homeless. Owned by 80-year-old Rev. Angel Garcia Rodriguez, the restaurant serves restaurant-quality meals to those who are down on their luck. “To get served by a waiter wearing a nice uniform and to eat with proper cutlery rather than a plastic fork, is what gives you back some dignity,” he said.

“It’s just hard to believe I get to sit and eat here without paying any money whatsoever. You reach a point when something like this just makes you feel incredible,” said Gian Parlafes, a guest at the restaurant. For regular paying customers, it can be quite difficult to get a table booking because of how popular it has become. Not only are the paying customers getting a wonderful meal but they’re also giving back something to the community.

favorite comic character meme ✦  [1/3] platonic relationships: bruce wayne

“But the whole truth was obvious. Bruce liked having Jason out here.”

Seeing my mom get excited about Robin Wright playing a warrior woman in Wonder Woman, claiming “she’s a year older than me!”, was defo the highlight of my week. My mom is crazy fit and has always tried to hide her lack of confidence. For the first time, I saw her seeing herself in someone on screen, in a powerful and uplifting light.

This movie didn’t even have to try that hard to be groundbreaking, and yet here we are.

There was crisp, dry snow under his feet and more snow lying on the branches of the trees. Overhead there was pale blue sky, the sort of sky one sees on a fine winter day in the morning. Straight ahead of him he saw between the tree-trunks the sun, just rising, very red and clear. Everything was perfectly still, as if he were the only living creature in that country. There was not even a robin or a squirrel among the trees, and the wood stretched as far as he could see in every direction. He shivered. 

He now remembered that he had been looking for Lucy; and also how unpleasant he had been to her about her “imaginary country” which now turned out not to have been imaginary at all. He thought that she must be somewhere quite close and so he shouted, “Lucy! Lucy! I’m here too-Edmund.”

There was no answer.

“She’s angry about all the things I’ve been saying lately,” thought Edmund. And though he did not like to admit that he had been wrong, he also did not much like being alone in this strange, cold, quiet place; so he shouted again…

You were a most capable partner, but I’ll be killing you here.  The work you’ve done for Baroque Works these past four years was invaluable thanks to your intellect and leadership.  For me that was enough.  You were a highly useful woman.  However, at the very end you broke your promise to me!  The poneglyph of this country failed to give me any leads on Pluton!  But I harbor not even the slightest ounce of anger towards you.  Do you know why, Nico Robin?

i love telling people robin is my favourite superhero because even though i do have a favourite robin out of them all its really the concept of robin that enchants me so much what the heck.. possibly the darkest and most mysterious member of the justice league, the terror of gothams underworld, the fearsome, the awe-inspiring Bat-Man, oh yeah and heres his little kid dressed in red yellow and green!! robin just balances batman out perfectly i LOVE the idea of having an audience surrogate for one of the most inaccessible heroes of all time , a bright companion for the Dark Knight, a character who represents conscience, a character who represents all the good batman fights for but forgets about ,    a family for a hero born from an orphan past, all i gotta say is batman and robin forever rah rah rah

Remember when the Calculator made Barbara dream to get into her head and discover all Oracle’s secret and in her perfect dream she’s with Dick and they call each other honey and they’re literally mom and dad with proud Grandpa!Jim and Tim and Damian being adorable to the side?

Yeah.

Also her subconscious is hilarious.

- I don’t think [Bruce] is gonna make it.

- Have a little faith, huh?

aka Red Robin: a summary

Damian pls, no birds pun while we eat the turkey.

(I’m just gonna ignore that neither are you because I’m trying not to cry here)

Jim and Damian are about to start a food fight, don’t even try convince me otherwise.
