Growing Up Batty: Part 4

Prompt: really love your Damian Wayne series! I was wondering if you are willing to do another Damian series where he’s around 13 and Bruce forces Damian to go to school and he has to face what is it like being in middle school with the help of his brothers and he starts to develop feelings for the reader and they get really close and Damian tries to keep her safe and keep her from finding out that he is Robin??

Part 1, Part 2, Part 3


You don’t have any delusions about yourself. Your parents had been honest about your heritage from day one. You know you’re different. While you understand emotions, you have a hard time expressing them. Deep down you know the truth. Your mother was an emotional being, dedicated to your sperm donor like no other. She let her emotions rule her and had ended up having a mental break that haunted the whole of Gotham.

    So yeah, you and emotions didn’t get along too well. You kept them closely guarded, and occasionally you let them out. Typically only around those you trusted. Like your parents, and eventually Damian Wayne.

    You can see it in him. That battle with emotions, the battle between doing what was right and what was needed. It hadn’t taken long for you to figure it out. Especially, with the hint Bruce Wayne had dropped. If someone knew who your birth parents are, then they knew everything about everything, and the only person who knew everything about everything, was the Batman.

You choose not to say anything. It’s their secret to keep, and since Damian obviously doesn’t know your secret, you figure it’s only polite to let him reveal his own. That is, until the academy is attacked by a gang of psychopaths, and Damian comes dangerously close to revealing his secret to the whole school.

You grab his hand before he can do anything. You grip it in your own, and when he tries to pull away, you dig your nails in. The look he gives you is one of confusion. You mouth the words, “Some things need to stay secret.”

He understands what you’re saying. You see the reluctance in his eyes, as he backs up into the shadow with you. The shadows are your friend. While for most they hide the scary things, for you they hide friends.

You don’t let go of Damian’s hand until Batman and his merry gang of birds arrive. You stay put in the classroom, while Damian runs to help his family. He never orders it, you just consider it common sense. You tuck your legs underneath you and grab your book. It won’t be long now before the police arrive and start clearing the school. You find it best to remain helpless when it comes to men with guns.

There’s also the fact that your classmates had already run screaming from the room. Foolish in your opinion, when there were men running around with guns. You enjoy the peace and quiet, right up until the door creaks open.

The lack of noise tells you the person is barefoot, which only slightly interests you. Self preservation wins over interest though, and you slide back farther into the shadows. That doesn’t stop her from finding you. She seems just as drawn to the shadows as you are. You meet her eyes without hesitation, and you can see the curiosity there.

You can see the dots slowly connecting behind her eyes, and when it clicks she frowns. As she crouches downs in front of you, her hand slowly reaches out and plucks a hair from your head. You scowl, at the slight pain. It’s almost as though she’s able to analyze your DNA, and as her scowl deepens, you know that’s exactly what she’s doing.

She straightens and stares at you before shaking her head, “Stupid, stupid Harley. She actually had you. That liar. I should have known better.”

You raise an eyebrow at her, “You should have known better? Shouldn’t she have known better than to screw a murderous clown.”

The grin that takes over her face, is more than a bit unsettling, “So you know.”

“What I come from, yeah. My parents think it’s better to be prepared.”

“Does being prepared cancel out genetics?”

Your eyes narrow, “My family does not define me. I choose who I am.”

This time, when the woman smiles, it’s a bit more kind. A small flower blooms out of her hand, and she reaches out and places it behind your ear. She straightens and says, “As always I’ll clean up your mother’s mess. Be well little Arlecchino.” Then she leaves.

You lean back against the wall, and let out a breath you didn’t realize you had been holding. Then the sounds of footsteps, this time boot clad, catch your attention.

He’s dressed in his typical outfit. Black suit, cape, mask, and utility belt. He kneels down in front of you, and you give him a half hearted smile. “Hi Mr. Wayne.”

He smiles, “Y/N, I see you received a visit from Pamela.”

You nod, “I’m guessing that’s the green plant lady.”

He nods, and reaches forward, to remove the flower. “You’re at a crossroads.”

“This where you convince me it’s time to throw away my family’s legacy, and join the side of heros?”

“I’d be happy as long as you don’t go on a murderous rampage.”

You nod, “I can understand that. But if I do want to join …is that an option.”

“I’m not a nice teacher.”

“Never thought you were.”

He smiles, “Then maybe we can work out a deal.”

Explore a Ghost Village at the Foot of an Angry Indonesian Volcano

Indonesia’s Mount Sinabung erupted last weekend, coughing up a 22,000-foot plume of ash that clouded the sky for days. It was yet another in a series of eruptions that has emptied surrounding villages like Gamber, where Albert Damanik snapped this eerie photo.

Ten of thousands have fled communities around Mount Sinabung since 2010, when the volcano awoke from a 400-year slumber. The 8,000-foot stratovolcano erupted again three years later, and today it is among the most active of Indonesia’s 130 volcanoes. Its constant activity has killed dozens of people, displaced 30,000 others, and caused over $100 million in damage. Everything within 2.5 miles is off-limits, a precaution that left  “ghost villages” dotting the Sumatran countryside.

In order to shake off the feeling of being dead inside I’m going to start this Canson sketchbook I’ve had for a year and see if I can draw a pic a day. Bets are open, who wants to see me botch this as well?

To start off, I drew @frenzner‘s OC Egeria cosplaying Red from Transistor!

PERSPECTIVE

Getting ready to dive in to some work projects, so I may be on sporadically for a short while. But, as I said Sunday, I am looking at things with fresh eyes this week, and here are my thoughts on two people who have provided me so much joy, and what I see right now.

One person who is beautiful, funny, smart, kind, and caring. Two time GG nominee, multiple acting awards, critically acclaimed, fashion icon, best dressed Vogue and W, ( and worst dressed in lesser known mags), honoree for Oscar Wilde awards from acclaimed director/producer JJ Abrams. Patron of lesser known charities and affiliate of various others, socially conscious, and all around beautiful woman. I would hang out with her if I could.

Another person who plays strong lead in a critically acclaimed series, handsome, hunky, kind, caring, and all around good guy. Theatrical trained actor. Patron of multiple charities, and affiliate of others, Barbour ambassador.

Together, these two people transcend everything that is good, and make you believe that nothing can ever trump true love. They have shown it, played it, worked it, and made us believe it.

So why, after all of that, can something so, so beautiful now look so horribly, horribly wrong? And, was it ever real to begin with?

All I know is that one of these people is being honored this week, while the actions of the other is overshadowing all of it. If this is how you “choose life”, then I feel sorry for that life.

My Dad always said be careful how you climb your ladder. The same people you pass on the way up may be the same people you pass on the way back down. And if you push, shove and force your way past those people, they won’t catch you when you fall, and EVERYONE falls at some point. I don’t know how all of this will end, but the train wreck we are watching unfold is really a sad mess.

While I might not get the fairy tale I wanted, I can unequivocally say that the ones we are being presented aren’t either. I hope it is all worth it for everyone involved in the end. Because by then, it won’t matter any more.

Have a good Tuesday sweet shipsters! Love to you all!😙😍❤

  • my brain: you don't need to get into another series. just finish this one and move on to the 1000000 books you own and haven't read yet.
  • my heart: OR OR OR - get this - read the fuck out of this series so you can buy the other series and THEN read one of the books you own.
  • brain: hoe don't do it.
  • heart: but it has one of your favorite guilty pleasure tropes - ordinary, boring girl turns out to have incredible power and gets thrown into a world of intrigue and drawn to a dark figure who she has to defeat.
  • brain: oh shit DO IT!!!

Hearts for Sean 💚

Top of the morning to you laddies, and welcome to this Sean Appreciation post!

Just want to start by saying that this is an incredible project and I’m having a great time going through the tag reading people’s stories. Here’s mine!

I found Sean through Mark maybe 2 ½ years ago? I started watching Mark 3 years ago but it was a while before I found Sean, and boy was I missing out. I loved his personality and energy right away, and I went and watched a lot of his older videos that day.

My favourite series has got to be Undertale. I waited until all the videos had been posted so I could watch the whole series at once, and then forgot for another few months, but as soon as I watched it I couldn’t stop. It was the first time I’d seen anything Undertale-related and it was a great introduction to the game. Out of all the Undertale lets plays I’ve watched it’s definitely my favourite.

Some of my favourite things about Sean are his energy and happy personality (it motivates me to be a happier, better person), his sense of humour (something I’ve noticed that I love is when he answers asks he can switch between serious and silly answers in a second, and I’ve laughed my head off at his videos more times than I can count), and how he really seems to love us fans (super interactive on social media and YouTube and constantly tells us we matter.)

I haven’t really made any friends through Sean, but I found a lot of really cool blogs, and I love seeing their posts on my dash every day.

I know you always tell us that you should be the one thanking us, but this time, thank you Sean, for all you’ve done for this wonderful community.

TAIKO TATSUJIN COLLABORATION

Another collaboration with another Bandai Namco game series, Taiko Tatsujin, have been confirmed! This will be the first time Starlight Stage is part of it and, for that, they will be adding in a version of their song “ Angel Dream “ soon! Alongside that, new room furniture will also be added into the room shop for a limited amount of time!

bharatanatyamandballet  asked:

Aww thank you so much! I wanted to read another series before I tried the foxhole court and I was also a little nervous cause I'm usually only into fantasy but I trust your opinion!!! I'm exited! So imma take it that Neil and Andrew are the OTP? Like not right away but building to it?

Listen, 99% of the books I own are fantasy or high fantasy. I rarely pick up a book that is realistic. But, it caught my interest. And I love it, I would give the first book a 7/10. I loved it.

ANDREW MINIYARD IS MY SON AND I WILL PROTECT HIM WITH MY LIFE. I HAVE A FEELING HES NOT ACCUSTOMED TO MANY PEOPLE PROTECTING HIM.

Ive seen some of his backstory in the first book, but I have a feeling much worse has happened to him than what has been stated so far. 

I love the dynamic between Niel and Andrew. I will be so pissed if they dont end up together. I was at the end of the first book yesterday and I kept whispering “kiss” at them. 

It’s taking me longer and longer to finish books. I was devouring them at ridiculous speeds (easily a book a day, if not more). Now it’s taking me at least 4 days. It’s scary how quickly a relapse can affect everything. Concentration/motivation especially.

Not only that but I just finished the last book in a series I was reading and now I have the struggle of finding another decent book/series to read. More often than not, I read the first few pages and I’m like “nope.” The problem with kindle unlimited and self published authors is, you have to sift through a lot of shit before you reach the gems. That being said, the gems make it totally worth it. And some of the best books and authors I’ve come across, have been breathtakingly good, despite being hidden and buried in the depths of the Amazon. Literally.
