I just read something and had an interesting thought...
what if Dick was Batman when Stephanie was Robin? Can you imagine how different her experience would have been? He would of been more accepting, and maybe she wouldn’t have been tortured to death (almost death). Then again, maybe she never would have became Batgirl. But can you imagine the Batman/Robin banter?
Had a couple issues with it, actually. I always have a issue with the art, I mean, it’s great, but after seeing these characters animated, it’s just not the same, you know? I’m noticing while Wally/Artemis are put together a lot in the show, because that couple is going to be cannon, Kaldur/Artemis are together a lot in the comics, which is strange. Plus, Wally/Artemis don’t fight, that I’ve noticed, in the comcis. So, while we’re talking about Kaldur (we weren’t really, but time for issue #2). When the team is in the diner (more on this in a little bit) why is Kal looking at a picture of Tula? I mean their investigating and he’s looking at a picture of his ex-girlfriend? I just…I get he’s still sad over that crap, but seriously? It makes little to no sense. And back on the diner scene, they’re in public, right? I mean, the owner even snarks about how teenagers stay up late, hang out in his diner, and don’t even talk to eachother, cell phones, rawr! Why is M’gann green? They’re in public! And why are those guys going, “Hey, teenagers, snark snark snark, you’re on your cellphone!” not “shit, Bobby, why is that girl green?” And why do these kids, why does Robin decide that the judge isn’t dirty because he wasn’t in the picture. I mean, someone had to take it, right?
I may be a little bitter from my lack of Batman Inc today.
The comic was good, don’t get me wrong, but there were some issues.
Went to buy Batman Incorporated: Leviathan Strikes online...
and it’s not there. I couldn’t find it on DC’s digital site. I just…is this operator error? I’m hoping so. I’m hoping I just skipped over it because Stephanie. I want my Stephanie. And I thought I’d get her today, but no. I’ll try later and hope (prey) it’s up. ‘Cause I want it. Now.
but I don’t know why anyone, who is in college, would want to move out of their parents place. Yes, I can understand that your parents and siblings can be annoying, get up in your business, and all of that nonsense; and you just want to have that sense of freedom. But, if you’re going to a school…
It won’t kill you, unless of course it does. I moved out this year and I’m eighteen and it was the best decision of my life. I have friends who didn’t and that works great for them, but everyone is different. I couldn’t have lived with my parents another year, and not because of petty reasons, because I would have lost my sanity. And yeah, it’s hard. I go to school and yet work like a dog and I get lonley and just want my Mommy, but then I call her and she reminds me of why I moved out. Because she’s a crazy fuck who emotionally (and physically) abused me for years.
Point is; everyone is different. What’s a good decision for one person is not a good decision for another.
I think my moving out was good for my relationship with my father...
He never stood up for me growing up. It was best to ignore my mother and just agree with her. I mean, he was there as a friend for me, but never as a father. I didn’t get hugs much. I wasn’t told he was proud of me. I was kiddingly called stupid and an idiot. He knew when he went to far, but he never knew when the insults added up. He was my father and yet he was insulting me like a friend.
Well, yesterday he told me he was proud of me for not failing a class I was really worried I would. Proud of me. And today when I got into a fight with my mother he took my side.He stood up for me. It seems like he’s becoming a father to me. And I’m so happy.
It’s not a big deal, but I came to this realization today.
I’ve heard that having issues with a parent during a child’s development can cause a child to cling to a certain gender sexually (basically be gay (if I can be blunt without offending anyone)). For example if a young boy doesn’t have a…
You may be on to something there. I have both Mommy and Daddy issues (mommy much more than Daddy, but he never stood up for me growing up) and I’m bisexual. Could be me trying to get the love from another female that I never got from my mother, and the support from a male that I never got from my father.
The fifth time this week my Mother started a fight with me...
when I told her I was studying for finals/writing a final paper/nervous about a final coming up. Then, after she hang up on me because I told her “I’m studying for finals” in a forceful manner when she asked me for the third time what I was doing, she texted me and went on about all the ways I treat her like crap. How one person can want another person to fail that much, and there is no denying when you look at my childhood, she wants me to end up exactly like her; in a loveless marriage, with children who despise her, who she hates back, homeless, working minimum wage, and having no friends or family to turn to. This is not how a mother is supposed to act, right? She’s not supposed to tell me to kill myself multiple times before I was ten, let alone after, right? She’s not supposed to tell me when I’m thirteen that I’m going to be a teenage mother because I’m a whore, right? She’s not supposed to start fighting with me right before I have to do something nerve wracking, right? Not supposed to expect money from me every week, right? I just…
all my hatred is reserved for Doris. I wish I didn’t, I wish I had a wonderful relationship with my mother, because she’s my mother, but I didn’t touch on half of the emotional abuse she put me through. And didn’t even bring up the physical.
I. Hate. Her.
So, why does it break my heart when we fight? Why did I call her up expecting her to tell me she was proud of me, when I told her my good news? Why am I bawling as I type this? I hate her, right? Why, can’t I just forget about her? Why do I still love this horrible woman who despises me? Why am I watching my phone expecting her to text back and tell me she’s sorry and that she loves me?
He loves his daughter. She isn’t some pawn to him, she isn’t just flesh and blood. She is his daughter. He’s a criminal and he’s flawed, but he’s her father. He was selfish when he let Paula take the blame and go to jail, he didn’t want to go, and he would never admit that he feels guilt. Guilt at Paula going to jail? Not so much, she knew what she was getting into when she became a criminal. Guilt at taking Artemis’s mother away from her. He tried to get her to toughen up. Tried to get her to grow upbecause it was the only way she would survive. He maybe also saw that he could have a partner in her, a legacy. When she took up the gig as a hero he was hurt and he’s pissed. It hurts even more that she’s alienated herself from him. But he is a little proud of her. All that she’s accomplishing. He just wishes she was on his side. But he has no doubts that she someday will be. Once a criminal, always a criminal in Lawrence’s mind.
He loves her. He’s her daddy.
Does this headcannon stem from my own daddy issues? Maybe. He’s flawed and he has dabbled in criminal activities, but he’s my daddy. I will always respect the fact that he’s loved me through all of his flaws.
But when she goes out in the pouring rain to be their for my boyfriend (Who she thinks is my bestfriend and who she seems to dislike) because his mother doesn't seem to be coming anytime soon. How can I not appreciate that?
That’s a wonderful thing she did.
And I mean, mother’s are people too and people can never be perfect. They make mistakes, that’s for sure. She was there for you, and in extension your boyfriend, when you needed her to be.
Still doesn’t make the crap she puts you through any better, but it’s good she’s there for you when you need her.
These two. It’s not canon, probably never will be. Doesn’t matter. The potential for this relationship overwhelms me. Artemis wants to be loved and accepted and part of a team, and Roy had a chance for that as Speedy. Her coming to understand
This is actually my favorite YJ pairing.
Despite the fact they’re considered a Crack pairing and will never be cannon.
