He loved cars and girls and getting into fights…Neapolitan ice cream and the color green…and most of all he loved the thrill of being Robin.
Jason Todd falls in love.
It’s easy for him, Bruce observes. Like water, or like breathing. His heart bleeds each and every time, but he can’t help it.
He falls in love each time.
The first that Bruce knew of was a girl in his art class. Her pale hair always tangled in a bun, and she always managed to look like a half-frightened deer. But Jay loved her with the shy love of a twelve year old, with the reckless idea that seventh grade lasts forever.
Then there was Rena. Oh, but did that boy moon over Rena. She was sharp, but in that intriguing sort of way. Like a brambleberry bush and its thorns, all brown and dry but full of promise. She hurt him, in the way young girls always do. Too inexperienced to really care, at least properly. Jason was devastated, but he was still a child. Childhood love becomes lodged in you, a tender memory that loses its pain as time goes on. Eventually your wound goes golden and you look back fondly.
There were others, a rainbow of girls ranging from interests and hobbies and, hell, once he hit high school, philosophies. Jason always had girls around. He liked girls, genuinely liked them. And girls liked Jason, because he treated them like people. His soft words and smiling eyes helped some too, but Jason was never interested in fooling. He was upfront and clear as glass and just…Jay.
Dedicating this one to @larvesta for supplying about 90% of my Alyanette needs.
Marinette pressed a hand against her mouth to hold back a
giggle as she watched the orange figure on the rooftop above her bound from one
foot to another, clearly displeased with the surprise snowfall they had
received the night before.
“Okay, seriously, why
is it so cold?! I mean, really Trixx?! You give me a freaking supersuit
that can withstand bullets and getting powerbombed from the top of the Eiffel
Tower and I don’t even breaking a nail, but then you forget that little detail
about providing some WARMTH?! You know, that thing clothes are SUPPOSED TO DO?!
I swear to whatever deity your furry little butt prays to, I’m feeding you tuna
fish for the rest of the month if you’re doing this just to mess with me
“Having problems there, Rena?” Marinette called up
The fox heroine yelped in surprise at the sound of her voice
and whipped around frantically to stare at her with startled amber eyes before promptly
losing her footing on the icy roof. The brunette’s tailbone hit the shingles
with a loud crack and, before Rena had the chance to recover, the poor frozen
fox slid right off the incline and landed straight in a snowbank that was
nearly up to Marinette’s shoulders.
Marinette almost cried trying to keep herself from laughing
as Rena Rouge groaned in dismay.
Oh my god. The self portrait section. Why am I salvaging art from when I was 15 to humiliate myself with?
The most interesting part of this for me is watching me gradually go from trying to draw my unruly hair as straight as possible since back as a kid I was embarrassed by it and would take a straightener to it every day (to disastrous effect), to this kinda half-assed ponytail thing I had going in high school lol.
Also interesting? Remembering life before I had a drawing desk/computer desk. Look at that. I literally took a plank of wood (no joke, I still have that) and would set it on my bed every day and use it as my “art studio” bc I was a kid and didn’t want my baby sister to see me drawing for soem weirdo reason.
Also omg. I remember checking out those “How to Draw” books from the library!!! It was where my friends and I would go after school to study Biology.
Fun story: my first friend at my middle/high school I didn’t have until tenth grade, I was the school parriah before that. And then Dhwani moved to our school and I was asked to show her around since we were in the same homeroom. So I did and we became immediate friends. And I would come home every day those first few weeks of tenth grade and tell my parents and sister all about this new friend I made and how awesome she was and that every day after school we went to the library and studied together.
They didn’t believe she was real for a month. Then mom and my sister picked me up from the library one day and Dhwani’s parents had been working so I told mom we had to take her home. They were literally STUNNED.
You found yourself around Jaebum a lot more than you imagined. It made
your heart a maniac each time, but you loved it because it made you feel. Apart from your raging emotions, Jaebum was actually
really kind, opposite from the cold aura that he exudes. Never once did you take each moment spent with him for granted, but that didn’t mean he didn’t. He was clueless about how much you admired him, so at times he invited other girls to join the two of you whether that be for a walk to the convenience store or practice.
Oh my gosh, the responses my silly old art is getting is literally leaving me speechless haha
@iamabagfullofcats: oh my gosh thank you!!! I am still really proud of a lot of the TMNT content I produced at my fandom heights so it means a lot to know that people still like and remember it <3
@seti-fan: Road Rovers was beautiful – your dog is secretly a superhero behind your back!? How great of an idea is that! Though in hindsight it’s kinda funny that Hunter was supposed to be Bill Clinton’s dog but as an adult I know that the First Pet was a wonderful cat XD
@crim-bat: Thank you a lot, Crim! I’ve grown a lot since then but I’m so pleased to hear people may still like the potential of my old stuff.
The night breeze blew into your face as you stood along the rail of the Han River walkway. The chilly air made you shiver, but you remained still to feel it pierce your skin. It was numbing both physically and mentally, but you were fond of it. It made you forget everything that had kept you on edge lately.
“You should keep yourself warm.” He hung his leather jacket, which was a tad too big for your frame, over your shoulders. “I remember being scolded by my mother whenever I went out without a jacket.”
Review:You and Calum broke up a long time ago, you both forgot about each other and kept living your lives until one day you’re brought back together in a party.
Warnings: Swearing, verbal fighting.
You laughed as your friend chugged the bottle of liquor, everyone was cheering her to finish it. Eventually she gave up and put the bottle down, laughing along with all of your friends. You barely knew who was hosting the party, what was the person’s name? You didn’t know or cared, you were always up for a party.
The alcohol was rushing through your veins, but you were still conscious. You were in the middle of a talk with a stranger when you had the urge of going to the bathroom.
“Whoops! Sorry buddy!” You chuckled as you accidentally spilled your drink on a girl.
“(YF/N)!” You yelled over the blasting music, the crowd was big, you pushed through the dancing bodies calling for your drunk friend. “Hey!” You laughed grabbing her arms, her eyes were unfocused and she was laughing her ass off. “Where’s the bathroom?!”
“Girl I don’t know! Oh look, Rena arrived” She ran past you to a random girl, you rolled your eyes and smiled.
Fortunately there wasn’t anyone on the stairs, because it was hard for you to keep your balance. You opened a door and something fell off, you gave a little jump in frustration, your bladder wasn’t going to hold on forever.
“Fuuck!” You grabbed the other door handle and pushed it open, a couple was making out on a bed. “Ah, sorry!” You shut your eyes as you closed it again.
Talking about the mole on the Rena stand-in posters, Masana notices that the Rena drawing on her shirt is lacking one. So the real Renaoh-so casually asks for a marker and proceeds to bully draw a mole on Masana’s shirt. XD
Genre: dramedy Rating: PG-13, I guess? Warnings: language, sexual references Characters: Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello, Michelangelo, Casey Pairings: None
This humourous one-shot fits into my 2k7verse, which incorporates “the Utrom Arrival” as having occurred in 2011, meaning the turtles can now claim alien status and live openly amongst humans. This story takes place in early 2012.
This is a really different style for me! I hope it works.
“Bro!” Casey Jones’ voice echoed off brick walls as he clattered down the stairs and into the lair. “You ready to party?”
On the second level, Raphael emerged from his bedroom, zipping up the oversized leather jacket he wore. “Yeah, yeah,” he called out to Casey below. “Keep your fuckin’ shorts on.”
Casey grinned toothily as he gazed up to where Raphael strode the concourse around to the staircase, and then ran a hand back through his tangled hair. “You won’t be sayin’ that too often where we’re going tonight!”
Raphael slowed as he reached the bottom of the stairs, giving his friend a quizzical glare, brow ridges furrowed. “What the hell you talkin’ ‘bout, Jones?”
Casey grinned and hooked his thumbs through the belt loops on his jeans, shook his hair back. “Nah, c’mon. It’s a surprise.”
Raphael cocked his head and narrowed his eyes at the grinning vigilante. For the first time, he noticed Casey wasn’t wearing his usual grimy sweatpants and wifebeater. Casey’s jeans were clean and his button-down shirt had been pressed, the sleeves neatly rolled up halfway. Shit, the bonehead had even shaved.
Raphael finished tugging on his riding gloves, then let his arms dangle by his sides, fists loosely clenched. He looked Casey dead in the eye, who smirked and popped his gum.
“C’mon, Case. Where we goin’?”
“You’re gonna love it, man!”
“Just tell me!” Quick-tempered as ever, Raphael practically barked these words at his beefy pal, his eyes bulging slightly behind his red mask. Casey held his hands up in mocking appeasement.
“Okay, okay!” he chuckled. “Sheesh!” He rubbed his hands together gleefully and shifted his weight, steel-capped boots scraping against the cement. “Bro, I have been waiting to take you to wunna these since you first got legal! Prepare yourself, man, because tonight is gonna blow your mind! Tonight, my little green buddy, you are in for the time of your life. Cos you and me, my friend, we - are going to - a - strip club! Ow! Yeah!” Casey punched the air with a fist, then beamed expectantly at Raphael.
Raphael stood at the bottom of the stairs in his leathers, staring deadpan at Casey. Several long, silent moments passed in which the turtle glared at his human friend, expression unreadable, while Casey grinned and waited, thick eyebrows high on his tanned forehead.
Finally, Raphael moved. “No,” he said flatly, and turned to walk back up the stairs, stripping off his gloves as he did so.
Casey’s face fell and he started after him. “Wha? Huh? Hey Raph, what the hell, man? Why not?”
“Are you fuckin’ kiddin’ me?” Raphael threw over his shoulder as he jammed his gloves into the pocket of his jacket, then furiously unzipped it. “I ain’t goin’ to a fuckin’ strip club, Casey.”
“But why not?” Casey sounded genuinely confused as he hurried up the stairs to catch up with Raphael. “You can go anywhere you like now! Ain’t nobody gonna stop you. And you’re a free man - so’m I for that matter!” he added pointedly. “Nobody to get in trouble with.” He reached out and laid a hand on Raphael’s shoulder only for the hot-headed turtle to violently shrug it off, turning to his friend with a scowl.
“I ain’t fuckin’ goin’!” he bellowed, for once towering over Casey on the stairs.
Casey’s eyes widened and he backed down a step. “Woah. Okay, Raph. Take it easy, buddy. I thought you’d be into it.”
“I’m into it!”
Both Casey and Raphael’s heads swivelled to stare over the railing. In the middle of the lair, a raised platform served as the den, strewn with battered old couches and beanbags clustered around an entertainment system. Michelangelo was leaning over the back of an over-stuffed red sofa, gazing up at them with wide blue eyes, his expression keen and hopeful.
He chuckled sheepishly, scratched the back of his head. “I’ll go with you, Casey. That’s cool, right?”
Casey blinked at him and turned on the stairs to amble back down. “You wanna go to a strip club, Mike? Really? But I thought you - uh - “
Michelangelo rolled his eyes dramatically. “Ugh! I told you guys - I swing both ways!” He paused thoughtfully for a moment. “All ways. Anyway, yes, I most definitely want to go to a strip club! I have been wanting to go to a strip club literally since I was eleven years old and first saw that movie Striptease with Demi Moore and the boobaliciously beautiful Pandora Peaks and, not to forget, the uber hot and gifted dancer Rena Riffel - oh and how about Burt Reynolds in one of his most brilliant comic turns ever, I swear that movie is an underappreciated work of genius - but anyway! Hell yes, to a strip club! Are you kidding? I have been waiting my whole life for this moment! I have been imagining myself in a pulsing, dark-lit, sweaty room surrounded by butts and boobs and beautiful babes since I was old enough to have wet dreams! And I am here to tell you, Casey Jones, there is no way on this good green earth you are even gonna think about taking one of my bros to a strip club and not take me too! I’m in!”
I play characters
that I can relate to, and it really peeves me off whenever someone else only
plays that character for the fanservice. I main both Rena and Ara because I can
surprisingly relate to them the most. I practically see them as good friends of
mine (I wish), and it really irks me when someone says “Oh, I only play
Rena/Ara for the breasts/jiggle-physics.” They’re characters with faces,
personalities and many more charms–not just a pair of boobs to stare at.
😘Fic request? Tadashi getting jealous when his gf gets hit on by other guys?💏 (💗BTW I love your blog, I'm always checking for your posts because they make my day😍)
A small hum emitted from your chest as your eyes scaled one of the many book shelves of the San Fransokyo Tech library. You decided on ‘The Grapes of Wrath’ and reached up with nimble fingers and grasped the semi-bend spine of the book. “I’d have chosen ‘Catcher in the Rye.’ A deep voice peeped from behind you, catching your attention as you thought you were alone with the rows of books. “But, ‘The Grapes of Wrath’ was a good book. Very complex, and the time it was written is brutal.”
You laughed softly and turned around, holding the book tightly. “Hey, Lucas.” Your voice picked up with happiness and a warm smile. “What are you, a book reviewer?”
“Hey, (Name). I’ve read the book before. High school English.” He grinned cutely, bumping his body against yours, “You usually procrastinate and read the book during the last week of the semester. What’s got you picking it out so early?”
“Tadashi,” You looked up at the blond and chuckled deeply, “You know, he’s pushing me not to procrastinate as much as I used to, though, it’s a nasty habit to kick.” Your voice drew to a close when you caught hold of the distaste on his face.
“Oh right,” Lucas said a bit distantly, clearing his throat, “How long have you him been dating?”
“A few months.” You explained and looked at your feet at the mere thought of your close to perfect boyfriend. “He’s really great, really loving and really strives to be the best.”
You heard him laugh before patting your small shoulder, “Lucky him, I guess. There’s a lot of guys here, and even some girls, who wanted to date you.” You rolled your eyes, almost silently telling him that you doubted the truth in his words. “Or, maybe it was just me who wanted to date you…”
“Lucas, I’m flattered, but Tadashi and I…”
“You know, I’ve really liked you since the 10th grade… You’ve only known Hamada for a year and a half… It’s sorta unfair.”
“She knows.” Tadashi uttered and walked down the aisle, setting his book back on the shelf. The tall, dark haired man looked back at the shorter blond with precise, almost threatening eyes, “Your flirting in Biology wasn’t very subtle.” He wrapped an arm around you protectively and pressed a warm kiss to your forehead. You accepted the token of love and nuzzled yourself into his arms. Your eyes rested on Lucas as Tadashi began speaking. “Learn to step down when the thing you want is someone else.”
Lucas looked at Tadashi with a fiery gaze, “Learn to step down when you feel threatened. (Name) is nice but I have a girlfriend.”
“Oh?” You asked softly.
“Yeah, you know Rena?”
“OH!” You gasped, punching his arm playfully, “Congrats! We can have double dates now!”
“No double dates.” Tadashi snarled and looked at Lucas through dark eyes. “I like my alone time with you.”
“Our very, very…” He leaned towards Lucas, “Intimate close alone time. Without Lucas Mucus.”
“That was one time!” He whined, “I was five and I didn’t have a tissue!”
You looked at Lucas with apologizing eyes, tugging Tadashi with you as you began walking back to the table in the spacious area of the library, “I should probably go read my book before I drown in testosterone.”
I haven’t updated for a while…the reason is I was on a trip for SKE48 special handshake event (cultural festival) and
150615 Team S [Seifuku no Me] stage (Lucky me!!!)
Now, I’m gonna report the handshake event.
I arrived at Makuhari Messe around 8.30, it was already a very long,long line there. First,I had to exchange event tickets to Mini-live tickets. There were 2 Mini-lives, 10.30 and 17.30, I got both.
Then, went through security check and waited for the 10.30 Mini-live.
Today, only Team S and E participated because KII went for national tour. The first round Mini-live was Team E. Rena-chan was the one doing Kage-ana (shadow announcer). Not long after, the live began with [Te wo tsunaginagara] which Saanan (Takatera Sana) came to play with Rena, she seemed so happy!! Haha. Then, they performed [Pareo wa Emerald].
After that, it was MC, Rena apologized for her graduation announcement and 2nd gen Draft members came on stage. Ayuka-chan (Kamimura Ayuka) Team S draft member showed her leg flexibility. As she admired Suda, she chose to show it together with Suda. When Madoka asked how can she do that? she said she learnt cheer dancing…Madoka who specialized on cheer dancing was surprised!! “then why not admire me!!?” Haha
Then, another Team S draft member Rena (Isshiki Rena) showed her Judo ability against….the most athletic girl in the world, Matsui Rena HAHAHAHAHA Matsui-san took a long time to set up the pose, but well, just in split second, she already lied down on stage floor…WTH is that!!??….Hahahahaha
After MC, 7th gen showed up and performed [Sansei Kawaii], that was a good Sanseii Kawaii. And Team E was back on stage with [Banana Kakumei] and [Oto wo Keshita Terebi], for god’s sake, I love this ballad song with those cute routines!! I’m so grateful having a chance to see this song live!! They ended the live with the legendary “flying shoe” song…[Coquettish Juutaichuu]…I was looking forward to any flying shoes. It seemed none, but at last, suddenly, Kanon’s shoe just flewwwwww directly to Rena!! Hahahaha
C’mon, what a funny live I saw here!! Told you, Team E is comedian team LOL
Next, handshake time!!
The first lane I went was Rena’s, of course. This was the first handshake event after she announced graduation. That means lots and lots of people!!!
Rena first round (actually, I thought I’d cry when I see her face but I decided not to…I don’t think she’d want to see that T.T) Me: (approached with a smile) Rena-chan, I will support you foreverrr (I used English, please noted that her English skill is quite good) R: (smile brightly back at me) Thank youu (in high pitched voice Arghhh) the end.
That was toooooooo fast, only 1 second I guess. But it couldn’t be helped, I know there were sooooooo many people waiting to meet her. Oh my Rena-chan.
Then, I wonder how’s Jurina doing. Since the day Rena announced “that”, Jurina seemed so down (like a broken-hearted soul). She also disappeared from any social media for 1 whole day. Yes, I was worried about her condition. So, I decided to meet her. Before my queue, there were 2 guys in front of me and they seemed familiar with Jurina, I think they are steady fans who came to handshake events often. The first guy went and said something I don’t know what it was but just when Jurina saw his face, she stepped back and started to cry out!!! and kept saying “Yada! Yada!” (means “No!, No!”) To be honest, I wanted to punch this guy…so much… Then, the next guy (the first guy’s friend) went and also said something, it seemed no harm but however, Jurina was still crying. Then, my turn…I decided to comfort her. Me: Jurina, Daijoubu-nee (means “it’s alright”). Don’t cry. (Used English and I almost raised my hand to wipe her tears but I tried not to) J: *sob* I’m fine (she answered in English and I don’t see how can you called this “fine”) OJS started to pull me out, but Jurina’s hand was still holding on to mine. Me: WMatsui zettai owaranai nee (means “Wmatsui will never end, absolutely”) J: *sob* Ummm! (and brought out her little finger as if she wanted me to promise) Me: Um! Owaranai-ne! (means “never end”) (and I immediately brought my little finger to hook with hers) I walked out of the lane with tears in my eyes T^T shittttttt
I heard that day Jurina took break many times and sometimes, Rena in the next lane also had to break and comfort her.
Next, let’s change the mood. Someone requested MiyamaRion and I fulfilled that \o/ Miyamae and Rion were in the same lane, I could shake hand with both at once. Time to tease these two.
Me: Ami-chan, do you love Rion? (in English) Miya: Eh!!?? (she’s very confused with English HAHAHA) Me: Rion, Rion, do you love her? (I pointed to Rion who was standing next to Miyamae) Miya: Oh! Ummmm…so-so!!! (Hahahaha just so-so?) Then I moved to Rion Me: Rion, she said she doesn’t love you! (English again, I know how bad Rion is when it comes to English, but, I wanted to tease her Hahahaha) Rion: Hah!!!??? (with stunning face) I don’t speak English!! (but you’re speaking English -*-) Me: (I turned to Miyamae and pointed at Rion) Miya: (turned to Rion and explained what it means HAHAHA) Rion: (turned to me) Okay!!! (with hand doing Okay sign) Me: Hahahahahahahahaha (I bursted laughing) That was FUN Hahaha
Then, I came back to Rena’s lane. I’d like to tell her to take care of Jurina. But now, The line was much longer than before. I had to wait like 1 hr. or more. And when it’s my turn, I saw her face and realized that Rena was already freaking tired… Me: Rena-chan, wish your dream comes true! R: (smiled and nodded) Thank you…(with soft voice, apparently, she’s running out of energy) Me: Please take care of Jurina,Okay? R: (still smiling) Hai…(again with very soft voice) Me: Mata-ne, bye bye (”See you, bye bye”) before releasing her hand, my palm rubbed with hers. I could feel how rough her hand is…Gosh, I like it!! (Ok, I admit I’m a pervert :P) The end I’m not sure whether she got my message or not. She looked really tired and people kept on coming to her lane. Although, according to her schedule, she should be available only for 2 hours but it seemed she’d been there longer than that. I decided not to go again. I felt for her wearisome, I know how great she is and she must want to greet ALL of her fans but there were just too many people. I wanted her to stop and have some rest. I worried about her health. After handshake event’s over, I heard that she still continued to work in another place. Rena-chan, please take care of yourself. ><
Next was Horror house handshake, the line was as long as in Disney land, you need 2 hr. to wait in the line …damn! In the meantime, I thought I could catch up with Maity (MaiMai&Mikitti) show on mini stage. But no, I couldn’t. I could only listen to them. They sang [Tegami no koto] and [Fuwa fuwa time] from K-on! That was so amazing! I regret that I couldn’t see it.
Back at Horror house, there was someone who reached out her hand and played with rubber chicken all the time…when fans asked “who’s that?”…she just popped her head out of the curtain and applied flashlight on her face….Yeah, that’s soooo scary HA! That was Sae-kun. Hahahahahaha Seriously, I thought “what are you doing, Sae? -*-” Before I got in the house, 3 members just got out, they needed to prepare for the live. Those members are Suzuran, Sae and Jurina. I was relieved seeing Jurina’s laugh. She seemed a lot better now.
In the house, to tell you the truth, it was nothing for me Hahahaha I mean it was not scary at all. They decorated it with corpses and skeletons but sorry, I’m just not afraid of horror house. At the end, before exit, there were 7th gen members waiting to shake hand with me. They were Rara-chan (Goto Rara) and another one I’m not sure, Kano-chan (Nojima Kano) maybe. These kids were cute, very very cute!! Me: Ah! Kawaii!! (I was supposed to be scared but…they were really cute Haha) Kano: Arigatou (said it with a cute smile) And moved to shake hand with the other kid Me: Gambare-nee (I couldn’t think of any other words) Rara:
Arigatou (said it with a cute smile, too)
Then, I took a look on both and said “Gambare, Gambare” before walked out of the house…..Ohhhhhhhhhh, am I gonna go to jail!!?? the kids were too adorable and their hands were so soft!! #wait, wait, don’t handcuff me
Then, It’s time for 17.30 Mini-live. This time, it’s Team S. Ryoha and Harutamu did the Kage-ana. The show began with cool song [Tsuyogari Dokei] and [Houkago race]. In the MC, I couldn’t understand what they were talking about (my japanese is just too poor) but it seemed Jurina was okay now. After that, it was full introduction of 7th gen members and they performed [Banzai venus] with Kano-chan as center. Then, Team S came back with [Oki Doki] and the legendary song [Coquettish Juutaichuu]. Sorry, but this time no flying shoe Hahahaha In this live, Juna (Yamada Juna) caught my eyes, instantly. What a bright performance she did!!! Even though her position was not the front row but damn it!! I couldn’t take my eyes off her. Juna dance was just fantastic!! She didn’t care if her hair pins fell down. That was full of spirit, I like it. They ended the show with [Nakama no Uta] with all members both Team S and 7th gen. Sae took the role of Nishishi in leading the calls in this song. It was nice.
It’s almost time to go home, but Suda was still there to shake hand with fans. As I also worried about her because of the Sousenkyo, I went to greet her. Again, the line was long, but they tried to rush it over. I only had about 2 sec. to talk with Suda. (well, at least it’s longer than Rena) Me: (approached calmly) Otsugaresamaaaa (means “thanks for hard work”) Suda: Arigatou (with a bright smile) She shook my hand firmly, at that instant, I think I know why she is Kami Taiyo. Me: Rainen mo Gambare!! (Means “Next year,too. Fight!!”) OJS pulled me out Suda: Hai! Gambare! (raised two fist and smile) Me: (raised a fist back and smile) Um! And walked out with smile, I was so glad to see Suda’s back in her usual spirit. Please everyone, please fight for her next year.
It’s time for me to go home, I saw Jurina already changed her clothes (to the one that she wore when she had dinner with Mariko-sama). She was standing there, exchanged some words with fans, next to her were Chiba-san and Yuasa-san and surrounded by OJS. I also bid a farewell by saying “Otsugare!” to Jurina and walked out. I also shook hand with Yuasa-papa as I saw him standing there.
