Fan Theory: Bentina Beakley, Agent of SHUSH

The following is just a fan theory. It is by no means substantiated by anything and is only the extrapolation of various tidbits of Duck lore.

In one of yesterday’s episodes, Mrs. Beakley told Donald Duck that she was able to do so much because she was a spy. There’s also a Twitter exchange between Tad Stones and Jim Cummings (the creator and voice of Darkwing Duck, respectively) pointing out that Beakley was wearing similar colors to Darkwing Duck. The simple version of this theory is that Beakley is a SHUSH agent. Now things get, shall we say, dangerous? Probably not, but I couldn’t help myself.

“I didn’t really get into [voice work] until the early nineties. I did something when I was a teenager, the animated version of ‘I Dream of Jeannie’, in the Larry Hagman role. […] That would’ve been like [nineteen] seventy-two or three, and I didn’t work again in voice-over…by the time I did it again, it was the Joker. I didn’t know about voice-over agents, specialized just in that; I got 'Jeannie’ through my theatrical agent. When I went to do my first voice-over jobs, I knew who Rob Paulsen was, I knew who Jeff Bennett was, I knew Tress MacNeille, Maurice LaMarche, Frank Welker, [etc.]. I’m a huge animation fan, I’ve been all my life, and I would tape these things on Saturday morning, I’d watch with the boys and my daughter as they were growing up. But I would freeze-frame on the end credits because I wanted to know who played all these characters! I think they were flattered that I knew who they were. I still remember seeing that episode of 'The Walt Disney Show’ where they showed Clarence Nash doing Donald Duck. It was the first time, I was maybe six or seven, where I go, 'Oh wait a minute, yeah; there are actors that go in and voice cartoons!’

Happy Birthday Mark Hamill! (September 25, 1951)


Here’s a primer for those new to the John Blake/Bane fandom. There are so many amazing stories in this fandom but a lot are non-con.

 For those starting out in this new tiny fandom, here are some stories that don’t start off dark and end darker.

Maybe He’s Born With It. Maybe It’s Tequila.

John’s not out at his gym. But everyone’s a little gay on Halloween, right? An AU inspired by Warrior and binge watching RuPaul’s Drag Race in more or less equal measures.

Bane probably could have gotten over this stupid infatuation. Maybe picture John when he’s jerking off, then and be able to move on. Until that smile; it spreads across his whole face and he has dimples. He looks so innocent and earnest that Bane feels his chest clench

by: grizzly_bear_bane

Bane is in town and sneaks into John’s apartment window when he’s sleeping. What he leaves with is far more than either he or John expected.

Gattino  by:sweetbutterbliss

He was amused to see that it had taken both of his brothers to bring the man into the room, and   was still struggling, his eyes fierce and his feet kicking out angrily. Bane laughed, he was tired of sycophants and grovelers. This man, who appeared too outraged to even feel any fear, was a breath of fresh air. He would most certainly look forward to getting to know him.

Arthur is working a job with his ex and Eames just can’t handle it. Or Eames acts like a big jealous baby. 

A Bear is For Life, Not Just for Christmas

Bane’s never gone through mating season with an actual mate before.

The red string of fate connects those who are destined to meet regardless of time, place, or circumstances. The thread may stretch or tangle, but it will never break.No matter how hard Bane, Blake, and Barsad try to tear it apart.

It’s not that John absolutely has to shoot Bane. It’s just that he really, really wants to.

    Good Morning, Magpie
    by: Corvin

While in the orphanage, John always knew he wanted to make the world a better place - through Education! Getting to the hearts of troubled kids like himself and giving them proper values.

And so he teaches in one of Gotham’s schools.It’s Parents Day, and one of his most favorite students brings their dad - Drug Lord Bane. Bait and Switch

by: Sibilant (WIP but Barsad’s POV is hilarious)

Blake is a too-trusting fool who puts himself out of commission. But Bane is always ready with a back up plan, and Barsad is his ever-loyal, long-suffering follower (or: The Misadventures of Barsad-wing, Defender of Gotham). Sheer, unadulterated crack.


by: d00m

Blake was positive that despite all of his years of training; Bane had not been prepared for that.But wasn’t he the one who said that theatricality was a powerful agent?

Seriously, though there’s another part of Bane/John Blake a darker side… stories that you need to read but they do go into non-con territory. Fall in love with John Blake and Bane first then I shall invite you down the path… to some more amazing stories.

Wowzas! Your art and the MOVEMENT you potray with still images is amazing…I love all of your characters, but there are so many I’m very much at a loss as to who’s who and what’s what. Do you have a list or something of all these wonderful people?

Thanks for the kind words! I’d been holding off on posting a character list until I’d actually gotten the webcomic up and running, but I’ve been getting a few questions along these lines so I threw together a quick cast rundown under the cut.

So I’m seeing a lot of misinformation around and I wanted to be annoying and clarify things because Dan (surprise surprise) got it wrong.  James Grant is a MANAGEMENT company.  Not an Agency.  Louis is stilled signed with CAA as his theatrical agents.  Actors (and tv personalities and musicians) usually have agents AND managers and Actor/Musicians can also have a theatrical management company AND one for their music careers.  Jared Leto, for example, as we all know is signed with Azoff for music but also is with Untitled Entertainment for on camera purposes.  

My current thoughts...

Ok so. I just want to put down my current thoughts into one post for my own reference. If anyone else is interested in reading this, please understand these are my current interpretations of what is possibly going on with a side of “wtf” because so much of it is still unknown and it’s impossible to make any solid conclusions. I do not know anything for sure nor do I claim to have all the info.

The only info we have at this time is what was taken from IMDb pro about the boys’ current personal representation (though it seems to keep being posted and then removed so who knows). But if it’s 100% factual, then the band as a whole is still listed with the reps they’ve had and that very well might not change for a while depending on when/if the band needs new reps. We don’t know how long this break will be so it’s hard to say. However, within the last week each of the boys’ personal teams have supposedly been altered. This doesn’t mean the band will not be coming back in the future. Harry now having a theatrical agent at CAA, an acting mgmt (Untitled Ent.) and Irving Azoff for music mgmt. we can interpret this to mean that Harry will likely pursue some kind of theatrical projects and will likely release solo music. As for Louis and Niall, they both are under 42 which appears to be a UK based tv mgmt and production company that recently partnered with itv to create new material. It’s likely we will see Louis and Niall doing television projects in the future. And Liam seems to have a music based mgmt so I’m guessing he will continue working on production and his remix stuff.

That’s really all we have to go on right now and even that might not 100% accurate. What made me very confused and unsettled yesterday was the “in your face” huge public circus we were seeing and the obvious staged “contract signing” pics which to me were a way to get people talking and speculating. Because it’s unlikely this contract would be signed in that way and also probably already was signed before now. So we have that on top of the very obvious charade with Kendall and I was like wtf… Have I misjudged Harry this whole time? Is he really this interested in fame to show off in this way and become the person the media has made him out to be? I don’t think he is that person and I don’t think he would want to continue this image into a solo career. That’s not freedom. But… This is also Hollywood and he /knows/ what needs to be done. This is a critical time for him to take advantage of his level of fame and interest if he wants a substantial career doing whatever he dreams of doing. I think he believes he is smartly using these tools to his advantage right now especially with azoff advising him.

I really can’t say how the next few months will go or how his individual career will turn out and I don’t want to believe that this circus is what he wants to build his career on. So I am just sitting and waiting to see why the public nature of this was necessary. I also don’t for a second think this would affect his relationship with Louis, as I’m sure they have discussed this at length and agreed upon the means. “I’d give up everything just ask me to”.. They are a team and a unit despite what we are presented with publicly.

I keep thinking about the song titles that were conveniently registered with ASCAP the other day and how that was the real start to this speculation. The titles themselves sound very interesting too.

I really do wish that Harry, instead of remaining quiet during promo when solo questions were brought up, could have given some indication or heads up to his fans so that we weren’t caught off guard in this way. But that was his choice and I’m sure he was advised how to handle those questions. I also think that he does want a break. A break from the relentless schedule of the last 5 years. It’s true that if he just stopped now and didn’t actively pursue other avenues, the general public would loose interest in him. This is really the most critical time for him to take advantage of his level of fame and I think he knows that. But it’s also very different from touring constantly and to him, this could be a sufficient break. It’s not what I had originally thought based on his words and actions (especially on social media) but that’s that.

There is so much we don’t know yet though but all I can hope is that the yacht stuff isn’t setting a precedent on how the rest of his career will go. Because it’s really not the way I had judged him to /want/ it to be. I trust that he knows what he is doing for himself though and as an extremely generous and kind person, I don’t believe he would choose to jerk his fans around so. It’s going to be a very interesting next few months.

anonymous asked:

Can you explain why it would be necessary for Harry and Louis to leave Nick Styne and get their own agents? Does Nick only do band booking and not individual projects? Also, would Nick have been closely aligned with Modest or Syco which would be another reason to leave him as they try to get different acting or music projects? Thank you!

Ok, so.  First let me preface this by saying that i don’t work in the music industry, I work in the acting side of things so all of my knowledge comes from there.  I’ll be the first to admit that it gets a bit complicated and I’m still attempting to figure out the details myself.  

From what I’ve gathered, Nick Styne handled the band as a whole for their on-camera appearances such as when they were on iCarly.  He reps the band as a whole.  He is listed as the band’s Theatrical Agent (and yes, specifically theatrical, not music). Nick DOES have individual theatrical clients such as Lily Collins, Bella Thorne, Ashley Benson, Vanessa Hudgens, etc.  So it’s POSSIBLE he could do individual projects, but as far as I am aware, he only books the band as a whole.  

Each agent within CAA handles different things.  As I mentioned before, Harry’s agent specifically handles actors and not musicians.  Louis’s new agent handles those who seemingly do both (and also randomly the host of Property Brothers which doesn’t exactly fit but  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯).  To me that implies he’s looking to do things as an individual apart from the band.  Now I also want to clearly say I’m NOT saying that the band is breaking up, it just means he’s actively pursuing other interests.  

As for whether or not Nick has been aligned with Modest/Syco?  not any more so than the rest of CAA.  Again, he’s a theatrical agent and not on the music side of things.  

Hope this helps! 

the least surprising thing is that louis would want to sign with a tv agent. i could see him doing that 100%. but that’s also something that was speculated on months back when the boys’ imdb pro profiles had been updated because i think there was something similar put up on louis’ and niall’s actually that indicated some kind of tv representation. 

it’s just like harry having a theatrical agent at CAA.
