-We’ve been friends a long time, Selina. And ever since you’ve known me, I’ve been dedicated to one thing, but that’s done. I don’t know what’s next, but I know- -Would you please just say what you mean?
Imagine Selina Always Interrupting Your Conversations With Ed, Your Crush
“Yeah?” You pushed your hair behind your ear as Edward walked you up to your apartment building. He had graciously offered to drive you home after your shift at his favorite book store, and you couldn’t have been more thrilled and nervous at the same time.
“It’s true,” he said, having given you another one of his odd little facts that always charmed you.
“So, I guess I’ll see you tomorrow?” You asked him hopefully.
“Actually, I was wondering-” Edwards grew shy, looking down at the sidewalk. Your heart began to race when-
“What are you guys talking about?” Selina, the street kid you had allowed to stay in your apartment poked her head out from the doorway, walking down the steps to meet you and effectively stopping Ed from speaking…again.
“Nothing,” you huffed. Curse your overprotective not-younger-sister.
Selina quietly observed him from behind the
window as he sat on the couch opposite the fireplace, his lanky frame somewhat
tense, shoulders sagged and head low. It had been a couple of days since Jerome
wrecked havoc on Gotham and tried to murder Bruce, and Selina couldn’t remember
a time when she had felt more terrified for him. The moment she’d learned about
what had happened, she’d gone straight to Wayne manor, not even caring that she
was supposed to be mad at Bruce—she just wanted, needed to make sure he was okay.
anyway i’m going to sit in my corner and ponder the idea of a Legends of Tomorrow (season one era)/Gotham crossover because y’all are sleeping on this wonderful idea
here’s some reasons:
it’s the only show besides the Flash where this crossover could legitimately happen and make somewhat sense
look, I can even write a plot starter: they need to go back in time and make sure a young Bruce Wayne doesn’t die because of REASONS (Rip refuses to reveal that Bruce = Batman)
(also, I have a headcanon that Ray and Bruce know each other and I just want Ray being sunshiney and happy to this broody little teenager)
LEONARD SNART WITH TINY SELINA KYLE
oh his big brother instincts kick the fuck in when she stEALS HIS WALLET.
OUT IN THE OPEN. HIS WALLET. LEONARD SNART. GOT HIS WALLET STOLEN.
he tries to smuggle her back on the Waverider when Rip pulls him aside and reassures him not to worry, Miss Kyle is extremely valuable in the future
Mick being his gruff but gentle self around Firefly (he thinks her flamethrower is awesome and never asks about her scars or comes close without her explicit permission)
Sara and Barbara made out
Stein HATES Gotham City, and gripes to Alfred about it
OOOH OOOH but THEN
The team goes back to PRESENT DAY GOTHAM
and Bruce REMEMBERS them
and once all the pieces come together and he realizes they were time travelers he asks Rip why he didn’t go back and save his parents
and Rip just looks at the eight children in the Batcave interrogating his friends and trying to pick playful fights and says knowing where you are now, who you are now, all the lives you have bettered and saved, would you have wanted me too?
as a bonus, with the current state of both shows, is it ridiculous enough to be canon?
am i going to have to write all of this fic myself
So I am just gonna throw all my emotions into this fuckin post because holy shit I have so many.
First off, I just want to say I loved this finale. It took me a moment to realize I did but once I sat back for a minute I realized I loved it. This finale made me laugh, made me cry, made me gasp and made me scream. So much shit happened, I am still processing it.
1. ALFRED PENNYWORTH
DID THAT MOTHER FUCKER NOT PULL ON YOUR HEART STRINGS LIKE HOLY COW!!! I thought it was a lot when he called Bruce his boy two episodes in a row, but DAMN he made me fuckin cry. One of my favorite relationships in this entire show, and in the batman franchise in general, has always been Alfred and Bruce. I have always loved when they give us a time to show us how much Alfred loves Bruce and what he is willing to do for him. The reminiscing was emotional. Alfred telling Bruce about when he first held him and realized that he will protect this boy at all cost, talking about his parents and just reminding Bruce how much he is loved. And Alfred finally straight up said “I LOVE YOU” that hurt me so much. We all know that Alfred loves Bruce and would die for him, but hearing him say it out loud was heart warming. When Bruce stabbed Alfred, that was one of the worst feelings I have ever felt. It took me back when they killed off Sweets in Bones and how I was just praying that he wouldn’t die. For about 2 minutes straight I thought they murdered Alfred for good and if they did I would have shut my television off because I was not going to have two of my favorite characters die in one fuckin episode. Thank you Gotham for the Butler love it was much appreciated!!!
2. Jim and Harvey
Aside from Alfred and Bruce, Jim and Harvey is my other fav. These last 3 episodes, really show how much Harvey cares about Jim. He probably asked Jim if he was okay like 30 times. Jim had the virus and he still stuck by his side, even though there was a chance Jim could go off any minute. I love the way the episode ended, Jim was cured and Lee left Gotham (again) but it followed with Harvey taking Jim out for a drink. Showing that no matter what demons and dangers Jim faces, Harvey will always have his back. Keep it up Gotham you are doing great with this bromance!!!
3. Fish Mooney
Not even gonna talk about. It sucked. It was terrible. It was un called for. This will be my one “fuck you” to Gotham
4. Jim and Lee
Sorry guys… I just… it’s…. I JUST REALLY WANT JIM AND LEE TO BE TOGETHER!!!! IS THAT TOO MUCH TO FUCKIN ASK!!! I MEAN THE TWO ACTORS ARE MARRIED IN REAL LIFE IS IT THAT HARD???? I am glad though that Lee is no longer mad at Jim. That she did hint in her letter that she would want to be with him again, and that if she stuck around to say goodbye, she wouldnt be able to bring herself to leave. Would it have been difficult for them to just leave it off with them on a clean slate? They didn’t have to get together, but idk what is going on with Morena. I don’t know if she still plans on being in the show or if that was her goodbye. I really hope not. I hope somehow Lee will find her way back to Gotham and her and Jim can start anew.
5. Bruce and Selina
Oh these two teenagers. Always fighting. Never on the same page. Look I get where the batcat babies are coming from. Bruce nearly lost Alfred. He is feeling like shit, and Selina, who refused to talk to him for weeks, shows up and wants to know what happened. I get why he would be a little upset. But I also get why Selina did what she did. Selina has been in survival mode ever since she could remember. And in survival mode you don’t have time for feelings. When Selina thought that Bruce was dead, she immediately distanced herself. Because she did not want to feel the pain of loosing him (She was even trying to get money to leave town, probably to just put everything behind her). We all know that Selina does care about Bruce, she is just not that good at showing love, considering that is something that was rarely shown to her. And if Bruce wasn’t in such an emotional state, he’d probably realize that her showing up was her way of showing she cares. Don’t worry, you both will have enough time to sort your shit out when you are in your animal costumes.
OKAY I AM SAVING THIS ONE FOR LAST BECAUSE IT WAS THE MOST FUNNIEST!!! After the episode was over, I couldn’t help but laugh at the fact that Oswald froze Ed and put him in a fuckin club. Like that has to be… hands down… the most…. extra thing these two have ever done!!! It was awesome because it was something nobody was expecting. It was so entertaining. Also, please tell me I wasn’t the only one who was expecting Ed and Oswald to kiss at that dock scene? I was literally telling myself “oh my god. It’s going to happen. I can’t believe it. Like this? No not like this.” I was kind of shocked when they didn’t kiss. It is obvious that Oswald still loves Ed. I honestly do believe that at some point, Ed and Oswald will become friends again. I mean the writers said it, these two will forever be drawn to each other. Eventually they will have to end this killing charade and Ed and Oz will have to reach some sort of agreement to just leave each other alone.
Between the Butler love, the buddy cop love, the Nygmobblepot angst and batcat finally fulfilling their true destinies, this episode was amazing and I am now, more than ever, looking forward to Season 4.
❝ Look, you tell a couple jokes as a dad and suddenly everyone’s like ‘you’re making dad jokes.’ ❞ - Batcat
“Well, it was a pun.” Selina replied, moving over to sit next to Bruce. “It wasn’t at all funny, though.”
“Alfred thought it was good. Am I not funny?” He turned his head to look at her, completely serious.
She bit her lip, trying not to laugh. “You…uh..yeah, Dark Knight, you’re the next Bo Burnham”
“Who the hell is Bo Burnham?”
“Oh, sweetie…” Selina rested her elbow on the back of the couch, and leaned her head on her fist. “Maybe let one of the kids make the joke next time. Or Alfred. Or me. Or literally anyone else.”
“You said I should try new things. Well, this is me trying.” He shrugged, almost pouting.
“Are you seriously upset about this?” She sighed and climbed on top of his lap, grabbing his face in her hands to make him look at her. “It’s a loving phrase. They all see you as this stoic and they’re surprised when you come up with something funny and actually say it out loud.”
“…I didn’t come up with it.”
Bruce took a deep breath, then averted his eyes. “…I heard…Clark made the same joke to the League last week.”
Now there was no way she could keep herself composed. She busted out laughing, hard enough that tears were coming to her eyes.
“Alright, I’m going down to the Batcave.” Bruce said, trying to remove Selina he could get up, but she wouldn’t budge.
“Sorry, sorry.” She said, coming down. Taking his hand, she locked their fingers together. “You know, you’re incredibly sexy when you’re flustered.”
He sighed. “You’re trying to distract me with sex, Selina, it’s not going to work.”
“Oh please, it always works.” She pressed her forehead against his. “Let’s go upstairs, and make you a dad again.”
He let out a groan of annoyance, then stood up, this time lacing his arms around her legs so he could take her with him.
“You know I’m going to have to tell Lois and Steve about this when I see them tomorrow.” She said as he walked them up the stairs
“You know I hate your little gossip circle.”
“Then you shouldn’t have introduced me to Iris. Us League spouses have to stick together.”
He rolled his eyes, then smiled. It was nice hearing Selina refer to herself as his spouse. Again.
