May I quickly address the title of Gotham’s 3x20?
“Pretty Hate Machine”. This phase can refer to a youth who tries too hard to play the part of a hateful or rebellious person. Take this as you will. It would easily relate to many of the characters we are familiar with.
On the other hand it could also line up with “Pretty Hate Machine” by Nine Inch Nails. The lyrics of the songs in this album express adolescent angst and feelings of betrayal by lovers. Consequently its Theme is one of despair and lovesick sentiments. Dare I say, Nygmobblepot???
I’m the queen of reading into things so take this with a large grain of salt.
for those who’re asking, yes! i am trying to blind you with that text! maybe if your eyes stop working nobody will notice the lack of quality they actually decided to follow. were you expecting a fancy graphic??? photoshop maybe???? well you obviously have no idea who you’re dealing with! anyway, i reached 3000 followers on this blog a couple days ago. considering that this blog began as a shitty nolan/arkham batman hybrid thing back in 2012 (i think?? i may have labeled my blog wrong) i’m just as surprised as you are. i came a long way and it surprises me that i even got this far. the fact that people still find me an entertaining batman in 2014 is incredible. the fact that it almost coincided with christmas this year gives me all the more reason to put this thing together. i guess it’s a follow forever then? or a bias list, whatever you kids are calling it this year.
ᴊᴜsᴛɪᴄᴇ ʟᴇᴀɢᴜᴇʀs: sᴩᴇᴄɪᴀʟ sʜᴏᴜᴛᴏᴜᴛs
queenxcersei: BAE. okay, so we haven’t written together all that much lately because we’ve been busy. but that doesn’t mean you aren’t one of the best writers i’ve ever come across ever. before you came along, i didn’t really care all that much about cersei or game of thrones for that matter. also i didn’t know i needed bruce/cersei until it happened and now i need it like air so i’ll be blaming you for that. one of my favorite ship dynamics and interactions ever on this blog.
lxgique: the sherlock to my batman. THE SHERLOCK. ONLY SHERLOCK THAT MATTERS. THE BEST DETECTIVE FRIEND THAT ANYBODY COULD HAVE. ONE OF THE OG BLOGS FOR THIS BLOG SERIOUSLY VERY OLD FRIENDS FOLLOW FOLLOW FOLLOW N O OW. O K?
regaliis/restorance: VERAAAA. it makes sense that pretty much every blog you ever make becomes uber-popular within the next few days. it’s a credit to your talent as a writer and just how incredibly nice you are as a person. we should be doing more things because that would be awesome but that doesn’t mean i still can’t admire you from afar. because you’re cool. you get a batarang for christmas.
championofthegods: biiiiiiiiiiii. i think you were the first person to write as diana with me. the first serious ww writer i came across too i think. you’re interpretation of diana is so spot on and wonderful and it makes me happy to see you back into writing again.
viewtokill: you are bond, period. seriously. i used to write as bond back in the day and i was almost considering bringing him back and then you came onto the scene & i was like ‘welp, tHEY WIN THE INTERNET.’ it’s incredible that we haven’t done a lot (mostly because of how lazy i’ve been with writing but you know). bond gets a tour of the batcave for christmas, because i say so.
seriadux: even though you continuously show ur booty everywhere you go (JUST TO SPITE ME AND BRUCE) you’re still one of my favorite blogs ever. just how you write barbara and her relationships with other people amazes me and it helps that you’re incredibly funny on top of all that. also, that double date with you/jason and bruce/diana still needs to happen.
gxthamprince: JAAAAAAAAAAAAAYSON. ur a lil shit dating babs but you’re also an incredible writer and one of my favorite dc blogs ever yOU KEEP DOING YOU (JUST DONT DO HER OR SO HELP ME)
calisvol: actual dracula bat-dad right here. I ALWAYS PUT OFF DOING THINGS WITH YOU AND I DON’T LIKE MYSELF BECAUSE OF IT. another example of how other peoples writing just floors me. no other alu-dad will do now. you’ve ruined dracula for me because you are literally him. you are actually alucard dracula vlad dracul evil maniac.
immortalcorrupter: diya is legit wesker. WESKER IS ALSO CLINT EASTWOOD. one of the most dynamic writers i’ve ever come across. you should do a DC muse next. we will found the justice league and it will be glorious.
callmeselina: LEGIT OG CATWOMAN UP IN DIS SHIT. i don’t like nolan’s vision of batman at all for multiple reasons, but you make catwoman work. even if she is technically set in his universe, you’re one of the very few nolan characters i can actually stand, let alone write with. one of my favorite blogs ever hands down and if anybody else disagrees well they can just FIGHT ME.
