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.
DID YOU KNOW THAT DAVID FROM THE PROPHETS IS IN MURDER BY DEATH NOW?
WHAT? WHAAAAAAT? I FEEL LIKE YOU JUST TOLD ME DICK JOINED THE AVENGERS.
p sure dick would be a terrible avenger, always trying to hug shit out with the rest of the team. (it’s true about dave though, twitter wouldn’t lie to me.)
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.)
