*note if i make a mistake or anything let me know. i haven’t read everything with the batfam so if it isnt canon compliant i apologize now please dont send me hate mail
Bruce: he is very smart (you would have to be to be the world’s greatest detective, right?) not only that but they prize originality and eccentrics and well just look at bruce and all the kids he has/has adopted. they are all very diverse and he seems to enjoy and foster their differences
Barbara: this is pretty obvious but Barbara is one of the smartest members of the batfam. Not only that but with her wit and love of learning it makes this pretty obvious
Tim: also kinda obvious BUT i would put him in this house because he’s very creative and smart. plus i always feel like Tim is always trying to impress everyone around him with his intelligence
Tiffany: she’s the daughter of lucius fox so obviously she’s very hardworking and smart but what really decided ravenclaw for her was the fact that shes is the manager of the wayne’s drug rehab program
Max: she is known as the smartest girl is terry’s class and also knows he is batman
Cassandra: ok cassandra is as loyal as dog (from what i’ve read/seen) so this seems like the most obvious choice. not only that but they value hardwork and dedication which you need to not only master fighting BUT also ballet which she is a pro at
Nell: (i’m considering her part of the batfam because she is shown in bombshells as part of the little bat-baseball gang thing and i love her and we need more of her) she’s very loyal to batgirl (stephanie brown) and looks up to her
Alfred: he is loyal to bruce and the wayne family no matter what happens. not only that but he must have the patience of a saint for dealing with them all (bruce and his brooding alone)
Leslie: she has always been the reliable older person that everyone can trust because she is kind and doesn’t judge. this was the obvious choice for her
Jason: i was torn between slytherin and gryffindor for him but what decided it for me isthat the main traits for gryffindor are bravery, courage, and daring and if we are talking about the positives to jason he has all of those things in abundance
Terry: after finding the entrance to the batcave and then deciding to become batman against bruce’s wishes, it’s easy to say you gotta be pretty bold. plus bravery? terry has that in abundance since he really had no formal training before donning the batsuit and still was able to take down the powers corp
Duke: for all that duke has been through and still has the ability to be the ray of sunshine he is, that is pretty freakin’ amazing and brave. (also remember that time he burned someone alive in front of bruce cause i do that’s a bold thing to do because of bruce’s adverseness to killing)
Kate: she is unapologetically herself (a proud jewish lesbian) who knows how to kick ass and take names. that makes this easy to place her in Gryffindor
Helena: being the daughter of bruce and selina, she was raised from birth to be a smart fighter and detective. she is cunning has self preservation and determination
Damian: for the first years of his life he was raised by talia and the league of assassins and they raised him to be a cunning and deadly fighter. not only that he does like to come off as detached and not really caring which is a total slytherin thing to do but he actually cares deeply
anyways this is what i think! if i forgot anyone or anything, you don’t agree, you want to expand, etc feel free!
reasons why The Party (s1 ep16) is the single greatest brooklyn nine nine - nay, comedy tv show - episode ever made and i’ll probably never ever get tired of watching it:
- strong underlying plot surrounding the discrimination against race and sexuality perpetuated by the NYPD and how awful and hurtful and gross that behaviour is
- zero dancing around the above subject, even going so far as to bluntly describe the perpetrators of the discrimination as “many of whom look exactly like you” to the white cishet male protagonist
- consequent acknowledgement of said protagonist of the crappiness of the behaviour even though he himself has never expressed even a hint of being prejudiced (he doesn’t get defensive, or scoff and brush it off, or say “Well, NOT ME”; Jake’s uncomfortable with emotions, sure, and says so, but not once in that scene does he dismiss Kevin’s concerns as not applying to him - rather, he demonstrates with his actions how much he (and the rest of the squad) care about and respect Captain Holt)
- kevin cozner is unfortunately not the star of danzes with wolvez
- [terrible falsetto] “Raymond, those slacks are a knockout!”
- the entire trope setup of the squad being in a Super Affluent Adult Situation, suddenly magnifying their collective weirdo-ness by showing how whacky their regular shenanigans really are in a normal Real World setting
- a party, no less
- for their boss’s birthday
- oh man
- “don’t move in a group! you’re not gazels!!”
- Charles having to put on Terry’s fifty-sizes-too-big cardigan to hide the massive salsa stain on his shirt
- “this fits so well, Terry, we have such similar physiques!”
- the hecnking. the fact that to any outside observer who did not Know amy santiago and jake peralta, watching them sneak upstairs one right after the other with no context could have only been interpreted as “they’re gonna go bang”, when, in fact, banging was the last thing on either of their minds
- they were instead concerned with trying to either a) back the unfortunate pro-slavery stance they’d accidentally backed themselves into or b) heinously violate the captain’s privacy by cataloguing the presence of “how it’s made: contact lenses” on his DVR, oh my God
- “we’re could have been really cool people! we weren’t, but we could have been!”
Today, March 12, 2017, marks two years since the world lost Sir Terry Pratchett. I remember it well. I had only recently discovered his works, and I blazed through them laughing all the way. I wanted to meet him, even if I wasn’t sure what I would say. The news that I would never get a chance, the news that the worlds he had created were forever stilled, was painful in the extreme. I was already struggling to deal with what I can only hope to be the worst period of my life, and I was not in a place to deal with the loss for well over a year. Last summer, I had the chance to sit down and re-read all his Discworld novels (as well as a few other novels of his I’m particularly fond of). After putting down the last one at five in the morning, I spent the next hour writing this. It’s hardly an original idea, but I felt compelled to do so. Enjoy.
'Actually, Mr. Vimes, I think we could,’ said Carrot. 'And the army, too. I mean, I don’t see why we can’t. We could charge them with behavior likely to cause a breach of the peace, sir. I mean, that’s what warfare IS.’
Vimes’s face split in a manic grin. 'I LIKE it.’
'But in fairness our–that is, the Ankh-Morpork army–are also–’
'Then you’d better arrest them, too,’ said Vimes. 'Arrest the lot of 'em. Conspiracy to cause an affray,’ he started to count on his fingers, 'going equipped to commit a crime, obstruction, threatening behavior, loitering with intent, loitering WITHIN tent, hah, traveling for the purposes of committing a crime, malicious lingering and carrying concealed weapons.’
Terry Pratchett, “Jingo” (And the thing is, we laugh at this because the idea of Sam Vimes arresting two armies IS funny. But on top of being funny–and on top of Vimes trying to pile on the charges here with this list–Pratchett intended with this book above all else to characterize war as, in itself, a crime. In this case, a war started because of a lie and because of racial/ethnic/national prejudice. But we’re meant to be thinking about this. When is war NOT a crime, when you get down to what most people think crimes are? Why is killing people okay and legal when it’s war, for one thing? Why is it legal to loot places when you conquer them? Why isn’t it murder and theft? Well?)
I’ve never been more proud of Brooklyn Nine-Nine! Last night’s episode was by far THE BEST the show ever made. Great performance from Terry Crews
I’m so glad i’ve been watching and supporting this show from the start. So if you like comedy shows who talks about important things like racism, feminism etc and is EXTREMALY funny without being offensive watch Brooklyn Nine-Nine
I am going to be incredibly brave and say YES, Mark Hamill is the best Joker. Please no hate mail!
Look, I just re-watched Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker today, and he had some prime line deliveries in that. And some might point to the flashback scene as the best stuff, I think his quips with Terry are better. With Bruce, he was dedicated to destroying him and so was just being a friggin’ jag– with Terry, he was having fun because he wasn’t taking Terry seriously.
Terri Welles, December 1980 Playmate and 1981 Playmate of the Year made her motion picture debut in the 1981 thriller Looker. Directed by Michael Crichton, the movie also starred Albert Finney, James Coburn and Susan Dey.
What! The-. Actual-. Fuck!, Iain, you’re actually going through with this storyline?!
NO ONE wants this! Most of us were sure that there wasn’t even a fetus and now there’s supposed sonogramic evidence of the damn thing?!
(Most of the GIFs used are ironically from a show that portrayed the only way to add a baby to a M/M relationship via sex with a woman with out necessarily insulting the queer community, they made it absolutely clear that it was non-consensual - there literally was a gun to their heads - with the baby being unwanted by the father until he could finally see him as an innocent and begun to form a bond, and fans - mostly former - still hate that showrunner because he then immediately utterly dismantled that dynamic and threw continuity out of the window just like you’re doing with this storyline.)
