Dick Grayson but “Grayson” is pronounced like “Croissant”

Teen Titans: Judas Contract

Alright well first off, I just finished watching Judas Contract. I wanted to wait to get it on DVD instead of watching it online but then I procrastinated when I bought it on Tuesday and only just got around to it. I also bought the deluxe edition that came with a cute little Blue Beetle figurine

With that out of the way, wow. Just wow. I never read the original comic for Judas Contract but I know the base storyline - Terra joins the TT, works for Slade as a double agent??, betrays team but then feels salty about it and tries to fix the situation? - something like that. I assumed that Cyborg was going to be in this movie before they released the trailer since at the end of TT v JL he said that he was gonna stay with the team instead of the JL but I don’t know.

First off, I must say that I loved seeing Kid Flash (I’m always a sucker for Wally and Bart) and it was really fun getting to hear Jason Spisak and Crispin Freeman reprise their roles as KF and Speedy; whom they played in the Young Justice cartoon.

So from seeing (almost) the original Titans in action through a flashback to Raven showing a pouting Damian a black lab puppy, I was thoroughly amused throughout the movie.

What surprised me though, was seeing someone that at first I thought looked like Jericho. For those of you not familiar with the name, he is Slade’s son and for those of you thinking ‘Deathstroke has a kid??’. Yes, he does. 3 actually; Grant, Joseph (Jericho), and Rose. Back to what I was saying, I was like ‘Oh my god that’s Jericho? That’s so cool that they would put him in here.’ - but then he got shot in the forehead and seemingly died……and I thought that maybe it was just an extra with an uncanny resemblance to the character? I was a little sad because I got really excited that they were going to somehow add Jericho to the Titans roster.

Moving on, there were two moments in the movie that had me laughing my ass off. The first was when Dick and Kori were sparring and Starfire knocked Nightwing down and she proceeded to tell him that he “lasted far longer this time” then Beast Boy and Terra giggled and Kori had to explain that she meant about their training session and was going to make clear that he was quite proficient during sex when Dick cut her off. 

The second one kind of ties in later but it was when Damian had been captured by Slade and Terra and the mercenary got up close and personal in Damian’s face when he started to mouth off and told him that “inside a month he’d have him bringing him a pipe and calling him papa.” This popped up later when, during the final battle, Damian charged at Slade with a  pipe and said “Hey papa, here’s your pipe.” Like I honestly can’t help but love Damian’s snarky attitude even when he’s being a complete dick or asshole.

As I said earlier, I never read the original Judas Contract comic so I have no idea if Terra died in that as well as in this movie (though they didn’t state that she really did?? She just kinda passed out maybe but then again she did get caved in under tons of boulders so) but they could also be doing a thing kinda like in the Teen Titans cartoon where Terra didn’t die in the cave in and lived but oh well.

I was extremely happy that they introduced Donna to the team at the end! It looked like she was having trouble flying so maybe she’s not used to her powers or maybe it was just a stumble on her part. Nonetheless, it was a great way to end the movie-NOT. The best ending for the movie was actually after the credits, if you watched that far (I learned from Marvel movies to always watch after the credits for extra bits).

It shows the seemingly dead Jericho look alike open his eyes and loe and behold they glow. What’s so special about this, you ask? Well if you don’t know, Jericho’s ability is that he can possess a person after making eye contact with them. His eyes glow and his astral form? leaves his body and possess another. This allows him to access the host’s powers, be it physical, mental, or magical, as well as their memories. The host is conscious throughout this time but unable to do anything as they are not in control of their actions.

Actually the thing I love most about Young Justice is that until Wolf acts like it, literally everyone treats him like a giant soft innocent pupper instead of a predator on steroids who could kill them all and it’s the greatest thing in the world

Have some random Batboys speaking other languages


“Okay, wait,” Garfield said. “You each speak like a dozen other languages?”

The Batboys shared a look and shrugged. “Not that many,” Dick said, “but sure.”

“Tt.”

Garfield grinned. “Cool! Could you say something?”

Tim elbowed Jason.

Red Hood rolled his eyes. “Todos ustedes me vuelven loco. ¿Por qué he venido aquí?

Li'anah ‘iidha kan ealayna 'an nueania, thuma tafeal 'aydanaan,” Damian spat.

“Boys,” Dick snapped. “Če se ne obnašate, boste odšli. Tim? Ti si na vrsti.”

Tim took a deep breath. “Mínzhǔ? Mínzhǔ. Mínzhǔ bùshì zhèxiē rén xūyào de, dìyù, shènzhì bùshì tāmen xiǎng yào de. Měiguó yīzhí shìtú zài guójiā jiànlì mínzhǔ guójiā yì gè shìjì, érqiě hái méiyǒu yīcì gōngzuò. Zhèxiē guójiā méiyǒu zhīchí mínzhǔ de zuì jīběn de jīshí. Xiǎo shìqíng, “wǒmen yīnggāi kuānróng nàxiē bùtóngyì wǒmen de rén”. “Wǒmen yīnggāi róngrěn nàxiē chóngbài yǔ wǒmen bù tóng de shén de rén!” Nàgè, jìzhě yīnggāi bù huì zǒngtǒngle! Nǐ rènwéi nǐ kěyǐ jìnjūn zhèxiē guójiā - jīyú yīxiē yuánjiàozhǐ zhǔyì de zōngjiào yuánzé - fàngxià jǐ méi zhàdàn, tuīfān dúcái zhě, kāishǐ mínzhǔ? Hēhē. Bùyào fán wǒ. Rénmen bùxiǎng yào zìyóu.

Nǐ gěi tāmen, tāmen huì gēnzhe. Nà jiùshì wǒ jìnlái dì dìfāng.” He winced. “I think I might’ve gotten some of that wrong. It’s been a while.”

Garfield looked up at him in awe. “Teach me.”

“Maybe.”

Garfield huffed and wandered off.

“Was that…,” Jason rubbed his mouth, trying not to laugh and failing. “Was that the freaking monologue from Call of Duty?”

“You memorized that thing?” Dick asked.

Tim shrugged and smirked. “Maybe. Maybe not.”


Jason (Spanish) – You all drive me crazy. Why did I come here?

Damian (Arabic) – Because if we have to suffer, then so do you.

Dick (Slovenian) – If you don’t behave, you leave. Tim? Your turn.

Tim (Chinese) - Democracy? Democracy. Democracy is not what these people need, hell, it’s not even what they want. America has been trying to install democracies in nations for a century and it hasn’t worked one time. These countries don’t have the most basic building blocks to support a democracy. Little things like, “We ought to be tolerant of those that disagree with us.” “We ought to be tolerant of those who worship a different god than us!” That, “A journalist ought to be able to disagree with the president!” And you think you can just march into these countries - based on some fundamentalist, religious principles - drop a few bombs, topple a dictator and start a democracy? Huh. Give me a break. People don’t want freedom. They want boundaries and rules… Protection… From invaders, and from themselves. People need a leader who can give them both the support and constraints to keep chaos at bay. You give them that, and they’ll follow. And that’s where I come in.

Apologies for any inaccuracies. Unfortunately, I only have access to google translate right now.

Day Dream

Prompts: A combination of this a hero whose really kinda annoying a batfam-member with her bat-puns and terrible jokes, but they low key like it? Like maybe Damian or Bruce? AND THIS something where the reader has ADHD and never taking her pills and annoying the batfam with it.

AN: This ended up being pure crack fiction, but I love it, because I got to put John Stewart in it!

Words: 403


“You’re off task AGAIN!”

You grin at the most current boy wonder “Look bird boy, life is too short to do nothing but boring stuff. You would know that if you’d simply pull the stick out of your butt, and do something other than play with your sword.” Your grin widens as a blush spread across the teenager’s cheeks. You can’t help but love subtle innuendos.  

Garfield bursts out laughing a moment later, and you use the distraction to score the winning point. You do a little dance before setting the paddle down, and moving out of the room.

You faintly listen to Robin and Gar go back and forth for a moment before running straight into a someone. A very familiar sigh accompanies you falling to the ground. Wincing a bit, you grin up at your mentor. John, was a hardass if there ever was one. A former marine, the Green Lantern had little patience for your absent mindedness. Somedays, you really missed Hal.

“You forgot your medication again, didn’t you?”

You grin up at him “I was in a hurry this morning.”

“You’re always in a hurry, always rushing, always deviating off task …”

You start to tune him out at that point, and begin making yourself more comfortable on the floor. You’re midway through a wonderful little daydream when you hear you name being barked “Y/N!!!!”

You startle out of your daydream to stare back up at John. His eye is twitching, and that vein in his forehead is throbbing. Moving quickly to your feet you, dart around him and make a mad dash down the hall. You can hear him calling after you, but you are in no shape to take him on this morning. You haven’t even stretched.

You’re nearly home free when you run into yet another person. You hit Kevlar and you grimace, because there’s only one person who wears enough Kevlar to make you bounce off like that. Giving a sheepish little grin you stare up at the big, bad, bat and say “Hi there count, shouldn’t you be making things go bump in the night, not the day?”

That turns out to not be the best thing to say. In the end you get an extra three hours of training, with Spooky, bird brain, and the drill sergeant all barking at you. You can’t help but sigh, and drift into another day dream.
