i talk about music a lot, & have a tendency to post songs that are stuck in my head in the hope that they will get stuck in your head instead. you're welcome.
i am having all these feelings about the differences in dick!bats and bucky!cap today and what taking up those mantles must have meant to each of them. why are you so far away where i can't yell at you for ruining my life with these dumb comic boys, move already, gosh.
YOU COULDN’T HAVE WAITED A MONTH AND A HALF TO HAVE THESE FEELINGS? LIKE, SERIOUSLY, LISA. (I have this mental image of us waiting for Bemis to come on at that concert, just waving our arms and yelling about comic books and ostracizing EVERYONE AROUND US. So, you know, us at a concert. It will be so nice to go to concerts with you again!)
I actually had a whole conversation with Rachael the other day about the Bat kids and how the reason they fight is so different from the reason Bruce fights…
(OH MY GOD YOU’RE GOING TO BE HERE IN A MONTH AND A HALF??? i haven’t consulted my mom about her countdown calendar in a while, this is SO EXCITING. i can’t wait to alienate the people of boston with you ♥)
so i haven’t read either run but i DID read steph’s run (with dick!bats) and i’ve listened to you babble about both of them a lot so obviously i am an expert in all things related to stupid boys in masks now.
anyway, i was just thinking about how dick, as both robin and nightwing, brought light to gotham. like, he tried to shine a light into those dark places, he brought humor and family and joy. but when he became batman, it felt to me like he had a real struggle to balance that light with batman’s darkness and make it all his own. for a while, that darkness swallowed him up and he needed a dick (hah) of his own to remind him why he loved being a superhero.
but for bucky, it was the opposite. steve was always the light to his shadow, and a century of shadows couldn’t have been easy to put aside. was it hard for him to pick up the shield? was it hard for him to put it down again after and go back to the shadows?
(and then i was thinking about jason, and where he would fit into all of this, and ha ha i hate all these stupid boys with all their stupid feelings SO MUCH UGH KEEP YOUR COMIC DISEASES TO YOURSELF.)
Do you have a link to the Bucky and Dick Grayson fic?
I do, Anonymouse!
Colliding on a Backdrop of Blue || The Winter Soldier has started to malfunction and wander off after completing his missions. His handlers chase him to Blüdhaven, where they get more of a resistance than they expected from the local vigilante. (Bucky Barnes/Dick Grayson, Bucky Barnes/Natasha Romanoff)
This is still lisapizza's fault. I feel like I owe her more Dick/Bucky too, but I can't remember what it was supposed to be about. (Though after last night, maybe it should be about Dick!Bats and Bucky!Cap.)
UM, YES PLEASE. (it might have been the coffeeshop au from #starbutts? or it might have been the one about dick being a lightweight and bucky taking advantage of that fact. you did write me the buttlympics though, so at least there’s that.)
(btw if any of you did not read this fic you REALLY, REALLY should.)
