[Oswald Cobblepot, The Penguin, The King of Gotham]

A character study aesthetic I did for Jude ( @guiltyphandiot​ ) and her Oswald Cobblepot RP blog, @featheredfiend​. I did this mostly because she and I RP Nygmobblepot all the time and I thought it’d be fun to look into the future of the Penguin and what sort of ways he’ll change and evolve. Hope you like it, babe!

my personal ideal version of batman villains is harley and ivy in a loving, healthy relationship living in a townhouse with selina (plus a dozen cats, bud and lou and several plants.) they’re not as wild and reckless as they used to be but they’re definitely still pulling heists and have no interest in reforming. harley begrudgingly pulls ivy and selina along to visit the other rogues, who are living in their various lairs, abandoned warehouses and messy apartments. the rogues meet for drinks at the iceberg lounge every two weeks. they get into arguments and try to kill each other a lot but somehow it always resolves itself, usually with batman acting as the peacemaker before it escalates into some kind of rogue civil war. they’re still trying (and failing) to kill batman. the batfam are sometimes endearing to them but mostly annoying brats and target practice. joker is missing or dead. everyone is gay.

the war of jokes and riddles leaked script

eddie and joker: *beating the shit out of each other in the iceberg lounge parking lot*

the rogues: *on deck chairs eating popcorn, oswald smoking a cigar, the rest of the rogues mostly cheering eddie on*

selina: you think we should separate them at some point? 

harvey: nah they’ll run out of steam eventually

I waitress at the iceberg lounge and it is awesome. Seriously you get full benefits and the pay is actually decent. Got this job thinking it would be a nightmare. But scarecrow is helping me pass advanced chemistry and joker leaves INSANE tips. Penguin is a great boss. He makes sure NOBODY harasses the waitstaff! Best job ever. #onlyingotham #thevillansarehelpingmegetmydegree #ivyreadmythesisonglobalwarming #shelovedit #haventbeenhitononcewatressing #theinsurancewiththisjobrocks #lovethiscity


[Gotham AU] Oswald’s Iceberg Ladies (Lark, Raven, and Jay): In the comics, Oswald has three “henchwomen” who are completely devoted to him and work in his club, The Iceberg Lounge. Well, Jude ( @guiltyphandiot ) decided Oswald needs a little more devotion in Gotham, so here are his Iceberg Ladies. Lark (FC: Gwendoline Christie), Raven (FC: Rihanna), and Jay (FC: Zoe Kravitz) are the hostess, bartender, and head waitress respectively. Don’t mess with Oswald when they’re around.

How Various Rogues Attempt Get Jon to Eat

Because I legitimately headcanon that Jon tries very hard to live on black coffee and air like, 75% of the time.

Edward: Programs riddles into the coffee machine and refuses to remove them until Jon eats a proper meal.

Jervis: Forces Jon to join a tea party and doesn’t let him leave until he has eaten at least one thing.

Selina: Makes him stuff like this:

Only edible (because jello brains are appetizing right?)

Ivy: Repeatedly sends him random fruits and has trained her plants to lock him in her greenhouse until he eats something whenever he visits.

Harley: Bakes cakes and various sweets for him


Jason: Inadvertently helps by showing up at Jon’s house injured and because Jon is from the South his first instinct is to feed Jason and Jason stares at him if he doesn’t eat.

Croc: Takes him out drinking and makes him eat while he’s drunk.

Garfield: Sends one of his giant dogs to Jon’s house with food

Oswald: Gives him discounts at the Iceberg Lounge if he orders food.

Penguin on the war of jokes and riddles

Oswald: Whoever wins permanent entrance to the Iceberg Lounge

Riddler: as in for anything?

Joker: and a discount on the salad bar?

Oswald: oh sure sure.

Joker & Riddler: *figthing in the parking lot*

Bruno the henchman: is that real, boss?

Oswald: Oh heavens no. But they will buy more weapons from me and thats the only thing Ill get out of it

I'm completely blind and I bartend at the Iceberg Lounge, which means I'm one of the few who knows all the rogues by voice. Sometimes the police try to bring me in to ID a recording, but I always just pretend I don't speak English. It's worked so far. #OnlyInGotham #MyMamaDidn'tRaiseNoFool #They'reGreatTippersAndAskAboutMyDog #GCPDBeDumb

this cat talk has got me curious: any pet hc's for the other rogues???? jervis definitely keeps rabbits and i really want croc to have something fuzzy that he can cuddle

ahhhh sorry i am publishing this so late!!! i am so behind on asks and i get a lot so some of them get lost. but honestly someone asked me this question before a looooong time ago so consider this the amended version.

eddie: a white cat so he could stroke it while talking to batman like a bond villain lmao. i answered a question earlier where i thought his cat would be an oriental longhair (that looks like this) with a very loud, attention-seeking meow. it’s one of those cats that knocks everything over. selina def gave him the cat bcos it wasn’t getting along with her other cats (it most likely had a sense of superiority haha)

harley: one-woman-animal-shelter. as well as having bud and lou, harley would take in any and all animals in need of homes, probably to the point it would get out of control… cats, dogs, birds, snakes, lizards, rabbits, bugs and so on. catch her trying to climb into the lion enclosure at the zoo to keep them company before ivy drags her ass off the fence. 

ivy: i think due to ivy’s apathy/borderline hatred of any non-plant living thing she would stay away from the furry and the scaly. she puts up with harley’s menagerie but only barely bcos at the end of the day, plants are her priority, so she probably has lots of different species of plants around her home and in her greenhouse. maybe the only exception would be pollinators: bees, butterflies, moths, hummingbirds and bats (she knows the irony.) beekeeper/save the bees ivy gives me life. 

selina: cats obviously. i feel like she has like, a core squad of cats that belong to her and that she gets the other rogues or some of her more trusted superhero friends to look after when she’s in lock-up or flying under the radar. she loves all cats tho and she is always feeding strays and saving cats from abusive owners (and probably beating up the owners as well.) 

jon: he has an affinity for crows but i’m not sure i could see him keeping one as pet just because i don’t see him keeping a bird in a cage. but he makes friends with the ones on the grounds at arkham/near his safe houses and they come land next to him and he feeds them. it makes it a lil problematic when he’s trying to lay low and it’s like batman: *sees a house with like 50 crows on the roof and in the garden* found him. this is a weird one but he might have a snake as well? he originally got it to fuck w/ some poor guy who was afraid of snakes but the snake grew on him and now it just lays across his shoulders and hisses softly when he’s trying to be intimidating. 

harvey: everyone thinks harvey is a dog person but hear me out… harvey dent and cats. specifically two cats of two different colors because he’s got to keep an aesthetic going. my reasoning is that it mellows him out esp when he’s trying not to be impulsive. like “i really wanna shoot this guy but i need him as my ally so i’m just gunna go home and stroke away the anger instead.” 

oswald: birds. everywhere. just flying wildly all over the iceberg lounge??? eddie can come but take that goddamn cat away from his precious birds. black mask comes for a meeting one time and gets pooped on.

croc: uh… idk if he would have a mammal as a pet bcos he might be prone to eat it? i’m not sure if croc stops at cannibalizing people or if he would actually eat an animal so maybe something scaly like him! or an amphibian. maybe just a frog he saw in the sewers one day. 

mr freeze: again, don’t know if he’d care about a pet but maybe something low maintenance like a cat. harley gives it to him bcos she insists he’s lonely and he only agrees to take it because she won’t leave otherwise. and at first he thinks about just giving the cat to an animal shelter but then it starts sitting on his desk while he’s doing research (but staying in its lane unlike eddie’s cat who would wreak havoc) and just kind of watches him while purring. victor ends up stroking it subconsciously while he’s mulling a problem over, so the cat gets to stay. 

joker: should not be allowed within 30 feet of an animal. ever. instead he probably has a pet rock that he drew a smiley face on that he throws at batman. 

Stay Classy, Gotham: An Iceberg Lounge Fanmix

The ritziest nightclub in Gotham features a host of sparkling diamonds, fancy suits, swirling gowns, fizzy champagne, good conversation, and absolutely no funny business. Nope, there’s no crime going on here, not at all. Put the guns away, boys. Be cool.

Mr. Penguin is hosting his annual Thug Appreciation Party at the Iceberg Lounge this Saturday. It's nice to feel appreciated. The door prizes are good too; last year I won a pair of diamond earrings for the missus and an extra bone saw for myself. #OnlyInGotham

“freezewald is problematic because people started shipping it just because they looked at each other” honey the moment I saw Victor Fries my ass was wide open

it’s a thing called. attraction

anyways joking aside the shipping totally couldn’t have been thought about beforehand. no one would’ve thought about how Oswald owns a club called THE ICEBERG LOUNGE in the future and didn’t think about how Oswald would’ve had a space designed for Victor. We def didn’t think about how well PENGUINS and ICE get along. no we just pulled it out of our ass just like you assumed. :)
