remember the 2000s

Shout out to the kids born at the turn of the century. We’re all a bit to young to be ‘90s kids, and yet we experienced a cultural phenomenon all our own. 

Shout out to the kids who grew up with the Disney Channel. Not “old Disney”, but with such gems as:

  • Hannah Montana
  • The Suite Life of Zack and Cody
  • Phineas and Ferb
  • The Wizards of Waverly Place
  • Sonny with a Chance
  • The Suite Life on Deck

And, of course, the Disney Channel original movies:

  • High School Musical (and both sequels)
  • Princess Protection Program
  • Camp Rock
  • Cheetah Girls
  • Jump In

And the other blockbuster (rip) movies of the time:

  • Sky High
  • Freaky Friday
  • The Princess Diaries
  • Ratatouille

Shout out to the kids who collected silly bands like it was their job. The kids who were cool if the had a slide phone with an unlimited text plan. The kids whose boybands were Big Time Rush and the Jonas Brothers. 

Shout out to the kids who wore their bootcut jeans and sequins with pride. we may not be ‘90s kids, but we still have our fair share of cringy nostalgia.

I just… really love this movie

Let’s put an end to the “old cartoons are better than new ones” trope

Announcement - Batman Beyond Slash Serial

Heya, folks! I hope that you guys are all doing well. I know for some that you all endured a last minute snowstorm surprise courtesy of Elsa, Jack Frost, Iceman, Sub Zero and Mr. Freeze. So I hope you guys are staying warm.

Anyway, I have a very special announcement to make. While I’m sure most of you remember this, I want to ask this just to be sure. Does anyone remember the old 2000 era DC animated series Batman Beyond? You know, one of the shows that used to come on the old KidsWB channel that you would actually wake up at seven AM/eight AM central on a freaking Saturday just to see and enjoy with your Pop Tarts and milk or a bowl of CoaCoa Puffs?

Remember now? Great. Now onto my point of this announcement…

I’m going to rewrite the Batman Beyond series in my vision, like I’m doing now with Scooby Doo Mystery Incorporated on Fanfiction. Net. And just as I have done with that series fanfiction remake I will be featuring slash in this take of mine. But it will have three special themes to it; 

1. Alpha/Beta/Omega Dynamics.

2. Terry is the son of Clark Kent(Alpha) and Bruce Wayne(Omega).

3. Since the DC Company couldn’t budget for it, I will make the fourth season we never got.


In my take I will feature various forms of DC lore throughout the comics, movies, games and TV shows of the franchise. This idea has been in development for at least two and a half years so be assured that I’m not cutting corners. It may seem confusing at the beginning of the series, but as Dirk Gently said it’s all connected. Everything will come full circle throughout my takes on the original three seasons of Batman Beyond and my vision of what I think season four would be. Granted DC may not use slash of Alpha/Beta/Omega Dynamics like I am…but you get the idea!

I will be posting the story like an episodic series would appear on TV, starting sometime in April at 9:30PM/10:30PM central with encore showing at 11:30PM/12:30AM central every Sunday. Some episodes from the original show will be combined, allowing certain characters to appear earlier than usual, and to fill the void I will include episodes I made up. I’ll be posting on Fanfiction. Net, deviantArt and Archive of Our Own. Then after the episodic chapter has aired I’ll hold a Q&A session here on Tumblr, and you guys can ask any and all questions you have about the current episode. As the series fanfic progress you’ll see familiar faces, new faces and learn things you may or may not have known about DC lore. Also, while I will be featuring as much DC lore as I possibly can, this series will center mostly around the events of the Batman Arkham game line. Don’t worry though - the reason of how everyone forgot that Batman is Bruce Wayne will be explained later on. To differentiate between the seasons each one will be a story of it’s own with a side title that comes after “Batman Beyond”.

That’s about it, folks. I hope that you enjoyed my announcement! Oh, and be on the watch with my Fanfiction. Net, deviantArt and AO3 profiles. I’ll be posting some chapter updates soon enough. And just to wet your appetites, here is a summary sneak preview of what to expect for season one.

~~~~~~~~~~~

Terrance Wayne-Kent, or Terry, is many things. A loving son, a loyal friend and a light that brings a shine to dismal Neo-Gotham. He is also an Omega, taking after his Omega parent Bruce. And like his second father Terry isn’t the usual Omega who preens and expects to be waited on. In fact you might say he waits on the city of Neo-Gotham, and does so in the same way as Bruce did so long ago. For the past two years Terry has been more to the city than just it’s New Favorite Son. He has been protecting Gotham as their new Batman, the Knight of Tomorrow. Because of his heroic persona Terry usually guards his heart whenever he deals with Alphas. But that all changes when he has a fateful encounter with the handsome Alpha half-blood son of Green Lantern and Hawkgirl, Rex Stewart aka Warhawk. Watch as two successors of lofty hero legacies battle together, taking on the worst of the worst one night at a time, and slowly but surely fall for each other.

Coming to your computer in April 2017, it’s “Batman Beyond: The Heir”.

Happy Birthday Christopher Plummer - December 13

remember how teenagers in early 2000s tv shows got jobs just by walking into businesses and harassing the managers until they saw the value of their wit and pluck? it suddenly occurred to me that that’s not a trope anymore because baby boomer tv writers are being steadily replaced with gen X-ers and older millennials who have no illusions about that being a real thing.
