when i was a senior in high school a teacher had us do this very quick essay in class about a person in our life we admire and look up to and because i was tired i just started using jason as reference intending to replace his name afterwards with a very general “uncle bob”… ultimately i didn’t do it because of time constraints and it just suddenly hit me how hilarious it is that to that teacher i have an uncle jason who “despite his occassionally short temper, he’s showed me to never back down even when facing great struggles” when in reality i was referencing to jason todd trying to murder batman after he returned
What if season three was called Resurrection? Named so because it’s the resurrection of the show itself, as well as featuring the return of Wally West, the literal resurrection of Jason Todd as the Red Hood, and a larger focus on Arsenals re-integration into society?
Mekt Ranzz/Lightning Lord (Legion of Super-Heroes): As featured, he is, in fact, the definite poster-boy for the family black sheep and fuck-up sibling, but frankly, he if perfect and I will fight people on this.
La’gaan/Lagoon Boy (Young Justice): He is one of the most gloriously detailed dorks in the history of the show and DC Animated in general and I do not care what anyone else says. His facial detailing, omg~
Harley Quinn/Harleen Quinzel (BTAS/Assault on Arkham): One of the entire reasons I got into comics and the like; she is both simple and so complicated and I will defend her in most things…except her video game models made me mad.
Mercy Graves (Superman TAS/JLU): She is a model who can kick anyone’s ass and dropkicked Luthor where it hurts (his ego) in JLU; what is there not to love about her?
Razer (Green Lantern TAS): He has a configuration of rabbit similar ears for a helmet and is a weirdly affectionate person with no social skills.
Ghoul (Batman Beyond: RotJ): I don’t NEED a reason to think he’s pretty–he has a fake Christopher Walken accent.
Garth/Tempest (Young Justice): He got less then twenty minutes of screen time, but he is a dainty, precious angel and has a top-knot.
Jason Todd/Red Hood (Under the Red Hood/Young Justice): His entire figure is perfect, but it’s the fact that he has Jensen Eckles voice makes him even prettier.
Edward Nigma/The Riddler (THE Batman): He is a geek/goth/techie who wears eyeliner and has long black hair and might, possibly, wear heels. Also, he’s voiced by Robert “Freddy Krueger” Englund.
Klarion the Witch-Boy (Young Justice): He is a snide, plotting, snotty, faux British Lord of Chaos with the voice of Lexington from Gargoyles. And he’s blue, so he is perfect.
Can we just talk about Tim in S2Ep8 of Young Justice when Jaime and Bart are talking down by the memorials. How Tim just stands there looking at Jasons hologram?
Cause I’m having major YoungJustice+Batfamily feels tonight. Look how timmy just stands there looking at him, (and this takes place a few episodes after dick told him “just dont die” right before a mission). This little puppy obviously looks up to his predecessor alot. Also can we talk about how Jason looks pretty late in his teens from this shot of his memorial we usually see around tumblr
But then if you look closely
Look how teeny tiny he is
I just really need more seasons of this show, preferably with a live and kicking jason todd
Prompt: Hey! Return with Jay was amazing ! I was wondering if you could write something based on the song All I Need by Within Temptation? This song is like the most beautiful I’ve ever heard and I thing it could fit a angsty relationship with Jason and the reader. That is if the song inspire you - if not feel free to ignore the request, though I’d love to know what you thought about it. Lots of love (and grammatical mistakes I’m sure xD) ! (requested by @eudokimia)
“Hello? Who is this?” You asked answering the strange number. A small part of your prayed it was Jason. After disappearing the night before and not coming home or at the very least reaching out to you, you were out of your mind with worry. You knew you should be relaxing with your child being due in only two short months but as you lay in bed your mind conjured up all the worst case scenarios.
“[Y/N]… It’s me … I fucked up babe. I’m so sorry.” Jason’s remorseful voice spoke to your from the other line. You let out a heavy sigh of relief at the sound of his voice.
“Jason? Thank god! Are you alright? I was so worried when you didn’t come home last night. Where the hell are you?” You asked, your words spilling out of your mouth a mile a minute.
“Babe please try to stay calm. Stress isn’t good for the baby.” Jason reminded you in a calming voice.
“Jason you’re stressing me out. Please just tell me what’s going on.” You pleaded desperately. His avoidance of your questions once again had you on the defensive. Something was definitely wrong. Despite his instructions to stay calm you felt your anxiety spike.
“One minute Todd.” You could hear an unfamiliar voice call harshly in the background.
“Jason?” You asked feeling a knot of dread twist in your stomach.
“I’m in Blackgate [Y/N]. But please don’t worry babe I’m going get this taken care of.” He explained calmly in a reassuring tone. You were neither calm nor reassured by his words.
“What? Jason how did -” You started to ask hysterically.
“Look babe I have to go. I love you [Y/N]. I promise you I’ll fix this. I’ll be there for you and our baby, just … give me some time alright? I love you. I see you soon, [Y/N]. I promise.” Jason reassured yet again before hanging up the phone. You had so many questions left unanswered, the most prominent being how could he do this to you? You had thought he had changed that he had reformed for the sake of your family that you were about to have together. At least he promised you as much …
You were to distraught over the situation to go and visit him immediately. You felt hurt, no, betrayed but he never failed to call you whenever he could to reassure you that everything was alright and that he would be home soon. Eventually your feelings of anger and betrayal hit the ceiling and you finally decided to go visit him during visitation hours.
You sit down wordlessly in the chair in front of the thick glass pane separating you from Jason. His eyes were trained on your heavy protruding stomach.
“The baby’s getting so big.” He breathed out in sad wonder into the phone connecting the two of you.
“Yeah, it’ll do that when you’re not there Jason.” You bit harshly. You immediately regretted your words. You knew it was a low blow but you were angry. You were hurt. Jason had promised that he was out of this game that could get him arrested, or worse, killed. After you found out you were pregnant, he promised you that he would be there for you and your child. The last thing he wanted was to be an absentee father like his father had been before him. He promised you he wouldn’t do anymore stupid shit that would risk the future you were planning together. You can’t exactly raise a child if you’re behind bars.
“[Y/N] I never meant to -”
“What? Get caught?” You asked bitterly. “Did your promise to me and our child really mean that little to you? I’m due in two months Jason! What the hell’s going to happen if your ‘strings’ don’t pull through? Am I supposed to raise our child without its father or am I supposed to expect that you can help raise a child from behind a glass?” You asked accusingly. Jason winced at your words. He understood where you were coming from and knew you had every right to be hurt but that didn’t make your words any less painful for him to hear.
“[Y/N] I know angry with me, you have every right to be. Just … give me the chance to make this up to you. I can turn this entire mess around.” He pleaded with you.
“Why did you do it? What could possibly be worth risking our family for?” You questioned.
“I know this probably sounds like utter horse shit, but I did do it for you. The money they were offering for this job, it would have set our kid and any other kid we have in the future up to go to any damn college they wanted. I would do anything to keep you happy. I’m just sorry -”
“That you got caught?” You finished for him with a judgmental quirked eyebrow.
“That and I’m sorry I let you down. I should never have taken the job. I made you a promise and I broke it and betrayed your trust. I want to beg you to give me another chance after I get out of here but I know you’ve already given me far too many chances. I wouldn’t blame you if you wanted nothing to do with me but I beg you to reconsider. You and the baby … you’re all I have.” He whispered sadly pleading with you through his eyes not to leave him like this.
Despite your anger, despite how badly your rational told you to leave him, you couldn’t ever bring yourself to do it. He fucked up, yes, but he did so with your family in mind. That didn’t excuse him by any means but you didn’t think it meant you should leave him and prevent him from ever seeing his child. He was a good man, and his heart was in the right place but sometimes he can do some stupid shit when he believes he’s in the right.
“Jason I’m not leaving you.” You whispered softly. Jason’s eyes flashed up to yours filled with a flash of hope for the first time since you had last seen each other outside of this jail.
“You’re not?” He asked incredulously.
“No, I’m not.” You repeated. “I’m still unbelievably pissed off at you but I think if we do what we’ve always done and stick together we should be able to make it through this. You better fucking get out of this hell hole Jason Todd or I’m going to break in there and drag you out myself. Most secure prison on Earth be damned.” You threatened wiping the tears from your cheeks. He chuckled slightly at your well-meaning threat. Jason reached his hand out to the glass and pressed his palm against it. You made a similar motion, your hand mirroring his. If it weren’t for the multiple inches of bullet proof glass between your hands, you might have been mistaken that your hands were almost touching.
“I love you Jason Todd. Now and always.” You swore, wishing more than anything to be able to be in his tight warm embrace. You hoped you wouldn’t have to wait too long to be able to feel that feeling again.
“I love you too [Y/N]. I won’t let you down, babe. I swear on my next grave.”
