I want to rewrite harley quinn’s history where while she’s the joker’s psychiatrist, she doesn’t fall for him, but she begins to agree with his ideologies, and he’s manipulating her into doing so, constantly blaming batman for all the lives he’s failed to save or something. like obviously there’s always been a divide in gotham about whether or not batman is a good thing for the city, especially if harley’s timeline starts early on in batman’s career. she’d have been on the fence about batman when she’s first introduced, and later of course believes him to be a toxic example of entitlement unhinged and unrestrained in a city of corruption and apathy.

and as batman begins to fill arkham asylum with the infamous rogues gallery for the first time, harley snaps one day when a close friend or maybe even her girlfriend/boyfriend/fiancé is murdered, and yet again batman fails to look out for the little guy.

and then harley quinn initiates the first mass breakout in the history of arkham asylum.

she then joins joker’s gang, trying to form a villainous partnership with him, and he respects her on some level for sure for being capable of essentially shutting down the entire asylum and letting everyone loose.

maybe there’s a part where she *does* try to kiss joker or something, but literally he pushes her off like “i am LITERALLY GAY how did you NOT KNOW THIS” and she’s like “oh holy shit.. duh- lol” and that’s the end of that.

he’d probably still treat her like shit bc obviously joker 1) is a terrible person, and 2) can’t share the limelight, and eventually she leaves joker’s gang and the two of them become nemesis’. insert plot line where she nearly kills him, and he gains respect for her as a formidable player in his “game” that previously only included himself and batman.

harley quinn has the power to kill the joker, and he respects the hell out of her for that. he stays out of her way, unless he’s feeling cocky and wants the shit kicked out of him w/o the pesky nuisance of getting arrested (brought to you by batman).

also obviously harley and ivy get together and are gay af, and they probably eventually become anti-heros together, and I would definitely include some sort of scene where they meet wonder woman and she’s tells them to continue following their hearts, as they are both morally ambiguous characters, but at the core of them both, they’re not evil, and diana knows this.

idk I have a lot of… Feelings

I hate it when people say technology is taking away kids’ childhoods
If anything, it’s actually giving kids more of an opportunity to let their imagination out

A lot of times when I let kids play on my phone, they go for the drawing app.
I watched a girl on the bus write a silly poem about her friends and then laugh as she made Siri read it
I hear children say to their friends “hey, FaceTime me later” because they still want to talk face to face even when they’re far away.
I see kids sitting, who would feel lonely and ignored if it weren’t for the fact that they’re texting their friends who are far away.
Children still climb trees. They might just take a selfie from the top to show off how high they’ve gotten.
They can immediately read the next book of their favorite series on their Kindles.
Most kids would still be up for a game of cops and robbers. Or maybe they’d google rules to another game they haven’t played yet.
When children wonder why the sky is blue, they don’t get an exasperated “I don’t know” from tired adults. They can go on Wikipedia and read about light waves and our atmosphere.
They show off the elaborate buildings they created on Minecraft.

Technology isn’t ruining childhoods, it’s enhancing them.

Look it has come to my attention that a number of people I like and care about haven’t read Batman: Li’l Gotham. This is a travesty. So consider this my PSA about how you really should read Li’l Gotham. Maybe you passed it up because it was an all ages comic and you thought it would be too silly. Maybe it just flew under your radar. I’m not judging. I’m just telling you that you should go read it as soon as possible.

It’s Batfam headcanons the comic folks. 

You want the misadventures of the Bat boys trying to cook?

Scrabble night at the Batcave?

The Gotham City Sirens being cute?

The Batmobile’s back seat?

Meta humor?

An unexpected bout of feels?

Or just lots of Bruce being a dad?

Read Li’l Gotham.
