From Hate to Love in record time (with a little help from Clark)
It seems to me a lot of people think that Diana Prince and Bruce Wayne having an argument in Justice League movie is proof that they are a bad match. Well … they are kind of used to start this way, neither Diana, nor Bruce, would start “impressed” by the other … not all romances start like a “teenager crush” … and the “teenager crush” is seldom of the long lasting kind … How many of you are still with their very “first love” ? not so much I guess … it often takes some experience and time to find the perfect partner.
There is this Trinity comic that I liked a lot. I think it goes back to 2003. I am not sure of that but judging by the “DC Comics” logo it has to be somewhere between 1976 and 2005.
The comics starts with Superman saving the day and meeting Bruce Wayne. They are not exactly BFFs but they know each others secret identities for some time.
Wonder Woman seeks to meet Superman for the first time because she thinks he may be responsible for a nuclear explosion near Themiscyra. Of course he isn’t, but he is amazed by the magnificent woman that he compares to Lois. As you can imagine he is charmed, who wouldn’t be ? She finds him awesome as well of course, so muscular, so large, so powerful, so heroic … So they start to work together showing off to each other how awesome they are … and some suicide bomber blasts later … the “Boy Scout” effect takes place… “such a Man”.
They fight together and again Superman shows his incredible power in front of her by taking the blow of another nuke while protecting her… That really starts like a strong “SuperWonder” story, poor Lois … Joking !, Supes only loves Lois it is written in his Kryptonian DNA and we know how resilient this DNA is … the only lead remaining after the nukes detonation is “Gotham”, so Superman takes her to a “Friend” …
Batman was just in the middle of an Interrogation and Diana just steps in and uses her lasso without asking … bad idea … as usual, Bats already has a file on her, what a surprise, so he isn’t really that “charmed” … being his usual ice cold brooding dark self and Diana in noble warrior princess mode … lets just say it didn’t look like there was a lot of “WonderBat” to start with …
Of course they despise each other quickly and Superman has to run(fly) after Bruce to talk to him alone. By chance, Diana discovers the hiding place of Ras Al Guhl who’s the “bad mastermind” of the story. But Wonder Woman gets beaten down to a bloody pulp by Bizarro finding out her limits of power. Waking up in chains and in bad shape, she knows she is gonna die, her skull crushed by the powerful creature and prays for Hera.
While Superman saves the day somewhere else, Batman follows his own lead with a fully prepared utility belt. He takes out a dangerous amazon rebel (Artemis), Ras’s henchmen and blinds severely Bizarro making him flee just before the creature had a chance to kill Wonder Woman. He frees her and she follows him. He is cold and Infuriating as always but she wants to help. He saves Gotham and she saves him but she needs to dive in the Lazarus pit to avoid death.
After her revival, she kind of gets crazy and runs away, returning to Themiscyra. Superman and Batman follow her there but split up as soon as the Island is in sight. Batman gets unsettled from the magical beauty of this place and ends up in front of the most wonderful bathing beauty he ever saw : Diana. After collecting his data on her before they even met, I think he was already “charmed” by Diana pure soul (and they already saved each others lives) but now he is helplessly hooked
Completely out of his mind in this magical paradise, his kisses her… without asking first …
Bad Idea … but I can understand the poor guy, when you think you’re in paradise it is hard to stay cool … they say if women show off more than 40% skin men’s brain switches to “primitive reptilian brain” and Diana pretty much shows 95% or more … my bossy girlfriend (turned wife) would no doubt make fun of me and say that my own reptilian brain IQ is definitely not higher than the one of Bruce Wayne here. XD … she may be right but she doesn’t really complain.
Ouch ! that did hurt ! … and not only the pride…
Clark was the smartest of both guys, … he was peeking from up in the sky, clever ;) … surely Bruce isn’t the only one who should rediscover his manners … the funny guy is nearly as fast as the Flash but didn’t stop Bruce … Clark, are you already a hardcore shipper ? or did you really want to get him killed ? … I love the Boy Scout when he is with Lois, he always is such a WonderBat fan.
After that, Batman returns to his usual Dark mood and all three have a little chat on a nearby Island. Finally after setting the next missions for him and Clark, Batman tells Diana that she can help in any way possible but she takes it the wrong way. She understands she misjudged the meaning of his words when he gives her back the magical lasso that he found back in Ras Al Guhl’s lair. Evidently she is upset and confused about Batman. She has “more or less” positive feelings about Batman (”more more or more less ?” well “probably more less !” after the bathing) but obviously Superman, for whom she feels great respect, seems to actually consider the man as his Friend. She needs to understand !
I think Superman is really awesome here. There is so much intelligence, wisdom and humility in these few words. “I often wonder if I were an ordinary man, would I show the same valor ?”. You have to admire the man. So much power but still able to question himself like that. I wish at least some of our politicians would be that good. Superman may be Batman’s “Beacon to the world”, but it looks like Batman is Superman’s “Beacon to the overpowered superheroes”.
That gives Diana the urgent need to rethink what she and her sisters really know and believe about men. I have no doubt that Diana is wise enough so that she would have figured out this all by herself but Superman helped to shorten the process. After talking to her mother about the amazonian rebel she goes to Wayne manor.
Now that she has seen Superman in action it is not hard to imagine how,
with his all superpowers, he could have saved her and Gotham from the nuke and
claws of Ras Al Guhl. She can imagine that Superman would still have got
a hard time fighting Bizarro.
But then you have this Bruce Wayne, “Batman”, a mere human mortal man with absolutely no superpowers who finds Ras Al Guhl’s hiding place without the help of luck like herself or x-ray vision, takes down an highly trained amazon and a bunch of henchmen, hurts and drives away one of the most powerful creatures she’s ever met, a creature even the Champion and Princess of the immortal amazons couldn’t match in combat. This normal man doesn’t run away despite all his “weaknesses” but stands up against such danger, puts his live on the line for people who don’t even know his name and won’t ever be grateful to him for that. That man fights in the shadow, when Superman or herself shine in the sun and get the glory. Nonetheless he saves her, then saves the city … how can you not ask yourself the same question as Superman ? when you admire valor, truth, justice, selflessness, compassion, how can you not fall for a guy like that ?
She may have been raised on an Island with no men, but Diana is a smart girl, she knows a catch when she see’s one. And the magic of Themiscyra already showed her what Batman’s heart was set on. So when she returns to Bruce Wayne to find out where the last two nukes are … she can’t stop herself from adding :
If you remember the only time she actually hit him you know the only thing missing in this sentence to fill up the dots is the implied “If you kiss me”.
With Peter, every day had been a dream. He had been the most gentlemanly, loving and just down right perfect boyfriend since day one. Of course the beginning was a bit rocky, but only because the two of you had been really awkward. Once that awkwardness faded, the transition from just friends to more had been a breeze. Dates usually consisted of movie nights in pajamas where kisses were stolen, and sweet nothings were whispered. You had even been voted most likely to get married out of all the couples at school, but that was mainly because you were “attached at the hip” according to some students.
The last couple months had been different, you hadn’t hung out just the two of you in a month, and every time you tried, he made up an excuse. It was like he’d lost all interest in you. He was even distant at school, always zoned out when you tried to chat with him, but you didn’t want to bring it up in fear that he would break up with you. It all pointed in that direction, but you didn’t care anymore, if he was going to break up with you, he should’ve just done it, instead of dragging it out. It would only hurt more.
That’s how you ended up here, standing on opposite ends of his room screaming at each other.
“Peter, if you wanted to break up with me, why didn’t you just tell me!” you yelled.
“Because that isn’t what I want (Y/N)!”
“Then what do you want! Because it seems to me that’s exactly what you want!” you yelled before going quiet, “why else would you start avoiding me all of a sudden.”
“Maybe because sometimes I want my own life, and you’re too clingy!” he yells, realizing what he said was completely out of anger after he’d already said it. He loved you, he knew that, but the stress of being spider-man had gotten to him. It was the only thing he could focus on, and he hadn’t even noticed your feelings until it was too late.
“Fine Peter, if what you want is some space, i’ll give you some. All you had to do was ask.” you respond, holding back tears at your frustration.
He was speechless as you gathered up your coat and purse before opening his door. Turning back to him you send him a small smile, hoping he won’t see how hurt you really are.
“Bye Peter” you say, stepping out of his room and closing the door behind you. From there, you rush out to the front hall of the apartment and leave the apartment. You make it to the sidewalk before the tears begin to fall, and when they come, they turn into quiet sobs as you make your way home.
As you walk, memories of Peter and you rush through your brain, as you passed your favourite pizza place, you remember your first date. He had tried to be romantic by taking you to an expensive french restaurant, but as soon as you guys read over the menu, you decided to bail.
You went to the little pizza place on the corner of Peter’s street, all dressed up, everyone looking at you two like you were crazy, but that only made it all the more fun. You guys laughed and talked until close, both your mom and aunt May texting you guys like crazy. When you realized how late it was, you told him that he should get home as quick as he could, but he insisted on walking you home, and you shared your first kiss on the stairs to your building. The entire thing seemed like it came right out of a cheesy romance novel, but it had been the best night for the both of you.
Distracted by your sorrow, you didn’t hear the footsteps coming up behind you until it was too late, and you were pushed to the ground. As you fell, both of your knees scraped against the pavement, rocks digging into your palms as you tried to catch yourself. Failing, your face hits the pavement abruptly, causing a jarring pain in your head. Your vision was blurry as you slowly turned your body over to face your attacker, a dark figure coming closer to you, and as your vision cleared you came face to face with him. A malicious smirk spread across the man’s face, an angry red scar across his left cheek criss crossing with the wrinkles around his eye, and emerald green eyes that looked anything but inviting. Pushing yourself with your hands, you scrabble backwards on the pavement, hoping that there was someone nearby to help you.
You backed up until you came in contact with a wall, and your fear began to grow, the man followed you slowly, pulling you up by the front of your jacket as he reached you, his strength greater than an ordinary man. You could feel a lump form in your throat. You were going to die here. You thought.
“Hey buddy, I wouldn’t do that if I were you.” a voice sounded from behind him.
He turned towards the voice, revealing the friendly neighbourhood superhero who was all the talk around here lately Spiderman. He was leaning against the pole of a street light nonchalantly, arms crossed over the emblem on his chest.
“Yeah, and who’s going to stop me shrimp?” the man asked, still grasping your coat tightly.
Without answering, a web shot from Spiderman’s wrist, wrapping itself around the man’s hand that wasn’t attached to you and sticking him to the wall behind you. Walking towards you, the masked vigilante pulled you free of the grip holding your coat before webbing up the guys other hand. Turning towards the street, he pulled out his phone before calling 911.
Coming out of your shock and fear, the voice begins to sound familiar to you, that’s when you notice the case on the phone. Its covered in dorky stickers, including one for your school’s debate team, and that’s when you realize it. Rushing forward, you pull the suited boy into a hug from behind, hands wrapped around his waist and forehead rested against his shoulder.
“You figured it out, didn’t you?” Peter asks, resting his hands on yours settled on his waist.
All you can do is nod, still scared from the night’s events. You can feel him sigh deeply as he turns in your arms, resting his hands on your hips.
“This isn’t how I wanted you to find out,” he speaks with a sniffle, reaching his right hand up to slowly peel the bottom half of his mask up, not wanting to reveal his identity to the man that attacked you.
“I don’t care, I’m just glad I know. I’m so sorry for how I acted, if I had’ve known, I would’ve acted differently.” you spoke, tears in your eyes.
“No, none of this was your fault,” he spoke softly, holding your cheeks in his hands and looking down at you through the eyes of his suit, “I should’ve told you a long time ago, and I definitely do not want space, because…well because I am absolutely in love with you and I can’t get enough of being around you.”
That caused you to smile up at him in sheer joy of hearing those words coming from him after the events of the last month. That’s when you heard the sirens, both your eyes and the eyes of the suit widening in realization.
“Okay, I really love you too, but we gotta get out of here” you state with a laugh.
Pulling you to his side he shoots webs at the nearest building and the two of you web out of the are, once again attached at the hip.
So we’re finally seeing some stuff for the Rampage movie. For those who don’t know, it’s a new movie coming out April 20th 2018 based on a series of video games of the same name. The most famous one being the original simply titled “Rampage” where you played as either a giant gorilla, a giant wolf, or a giant lizard. You smashed up buildings. Simple stuff.
These are stills from the trailer. It looks like it could be pretty good. I still have concerns, parts make it seem like it’s leaning towards that “gritty reboot” style. But there were shots that made me say “HECK YEAH now THAT’S Rampage!!”
I definitely want it to be good but hey I’ll be happy if it’s passable. Perfect timing since we’re in a bit of a monster resurgence thanks to Legendary making PacRim and Godzilla/Kong movies.
Jojo, please consider the end credits version of Far Longer Than Forever from The Swan Princess. I rediscovered this while watching the movie for the millionth time and it's been my Sheith Mood Song™ for the past two weeks lmao
I LOVE THIS MOVIE. oh my god. this is perfect. this is exactly what i was looking for. the guitar… oh my god. you guys i’m like the biggest trash on earth. this is my aesthetic.
Request: Hi I’d like to request a draco x reader where draco is a deatheater and the reader is his long time girlfriend, who is a Slytherin but not a deatheater.

Thank you
A/N: I hope that you like it, I used references from the 7th book and not the movie, just so that you know!
the worst thing justice league ever did - WHY DID THE AMAZON WARRIORS SUDDENLY START WEARING MIDRIFFS AND BIKINI ARMOR???
okay i get it was like about 100 years since we last saw them in Wonder Woman and maybe they updated their armors, but you’re telling me they all just collectively decided “oh why protect your stomach, it’s totally not important and i’ll look sexy in it”????
how did we go from amazons in fully practical greeks/romans inspired armor to amazons in completely impractical fantasy rpg inspired armor?
is this what happens when a woman’s costume design is taken from a woman and give to a man????

This is totally from a Richard Curtis movie where the romantic lead all of a sudden realizes he made a huge error in judgment regarding the woman he loves. Cue the flashback montage recapping their turbulent affair. AM I WRONG?
As long as he could see Jean’s guard drop and his eyes go soft at the edges. As long as he could talk to Jean about his problems openly and not have to worry about being judged. As long as Jean knew Jeremy would do the same. As long as he was with Jean then it would be worth it.
