karanguni: (BATMAN and NIGHTWING)
Finally took a day or so to do nothing but indulge myself - between coming fast and hard off the exams and straight into soul-eating fic, I decided not to write another few chapters and just to laze around and be human for a little while. Still feeling kind of twitchy; my body wants me to do stuff, even though my mind is telling me firmly to back off.

She has a life, does she? )

Here, have a few guilty pleasure listening songs:

Miley Cyrus - See You Again

This song is so hilariously teeny-bopper, but also hilariously catching, if you ignore Miley Cyrus' self-insert into the lyrics. It's my private Stephanie!song, for the Batfans on the flist. Somehow it sparks a little of young!AU!Elena, for the FFVII people. God, pop.

The last time I freaked out
I just kept looking down
St-st-st-stuttered when you asked me what I'm thinking 'bout

Smashing Pumpkins - The End is the Beginning is the End

For the Batfans: Yoinked right off the Batman and Robin soundtrack, this track makes me think of Jason Todd, Dick gone wrong and Timothy logically extended. It's a frightening Gotham. For the VII fans: dude, this is like. Midgar slums +++++ I write angry Tseng and think of this fondly.

Is it bright where you are?
Have the people changed?
Does it make you happy; you're so strange.

[edit] Bugger. Pornbattle on IJ just decided to buttonsmash me. Potentials:

Batman Beyond, Bruce/Terry, family
Batman Beyond, Bruce/Terry, time-travel

DC Comics, Bruce Wayne/Dick Grayson, ward
DC comics, Dick Grayson/Tim Drake, bonded

karanguni: (DICK swings weird)
I'm not sure if I'm allowed to call this a "drabble" arc anymore...

And lead is light as a feather

Fandom: Batman/Batman Beyond
Rating: PG
Characters: Bruce, Dick, Terry
Warnings: Assumes RotJ has happened. Assumes comics!history. Bruce, because this man deserves a warning all on his own. Typical Batman Relationships (TM).
Summary: Following his 50 year displacement, Dick learns about all the things that have - and have not - changed in the era of Terry McGinnis.

Second in the Better Dead than Lead arc.

4746 words and I'm not even halfway through the list of tiny things I'm supposed to write and oh god, Bruce, why do you have mental sex with everyone?

It's automatic for Dick to say, 'It wasn't your fault.' )
karanguni: (BATMAN and NIGHTWING)
Still in the midst of studying. Batman and family, they are my anti-drug. Spasming below cut. Fic and your usual she-bang will return, BUT NOT RIGHT NOW.


Bruce sure knows how to pick 'em. )

God, I love this fandom. Maybe I should use some of my birthday moolah and buy myself more iconspace. *____* IF ONLY PEOPLE GAVE ME CASH IN INTERNET CREDITS.

Here, have a meme:

1. Answer the questions, using one name from your flist as an answer to each question.
2. Delete the questions, leaving the answers.
3. Give the questions to anyone who does the meme in turn.

Dear Neglected Final Fantasy VII Readers on the flist:

This is my inner voice for Tseng speaking. After 2428 stories in which Tseng does nothing much other than, um, kick a lot of ass and/or have mildly disturbing flashbacks and/or stays quite firmly in his nice, mono-fandom spot, would you guys be interested in (I know I'm a total w00b and failure here) seeing his ass get sort of kicked in a Batman crossover?

Because, um, yeah. Tseng. In Gotham. Um. I'll be here. Holding up little signs that say "endorse the plotbunny". *WEEPS FOR FANDOM PURITY*

In other news )
karanguni: (BATMAN and NIGHTWING)
Hello, flist. I am here to pimp out Batman - the Batfamily, more specificaly, from comicsverse. Do not worry. There is no required reading. The prerequisites? An enjoyment for good character dynamics. The ability to feel your heart break at the sheer amount of loyalty - and obsession - that can come with creating (and keeping) a family together that isn't bound by blood. An appreciation for those who are willing to die for what they believe in - and, more than that, those who are willing to live for what they believe in. A thought for the ones who push people they love away because they care. And a moment for those who take the time to remember the important things in life, and the challenges that come with those things.

Batman, alone in his cave, once took the time to sit down and talk about himself in third person, asking the question, what motivates the Bat?

Of Dick Grayson - the first Robin, the Robin who was fired (or quit), the Robin who went away demanding independence and came back independent as the vigilante Nightwing, the ward who became a son who became an almost-equal; of Dick Grayson, the man that Bruce Wayne has arguably hurt more than any of his other partners; of Dick Grayson, who took the hurt and ran with it, and who would die for Bruce as much as Bruce would live for him, Batman writes:

"As well as I profess to know the Batman, even I can't be sure what he was thinking when he agreed to assume legal custody for the orphaned boy who would be the first Robin.

I can tell you this about the boy: he was fearless. He was effusive. And he was full of grace."

The rest of the things are better said in images:

Sometimes my heart says yes, yes, yes: )
karanguni: (dick is HIGH)
Bat!drabble is breeding into an Arc, much like the Bat!family itself. Takes off right after if I told you I felt ageless:

would you tell me I'm not old?

Rating: PG
Characters: Bruce, Terry
Warnings: Me n00b. Terry silly. Bruce caveman. Caveman steal prey and bring back into cave. P.s. Ted Leo I'm really (not) sorry for stealing your lyrics.
Summary: One light warm-up later, and Bruce has to find a place to stash Terry. Terry needs to find a place to stash Bruce's encyclopaedic history.

926 words and Dick Grayson looming! Again! Like a gargoyle!

So, about those three million points for Wayne, again.  )
karanguni: (try your LUCK)
Revision is turning my brain into slush. I haven't written in what feels like a bajillion years. My keyboard feels foreign to me. Also, Batman.

Drabble ahead. Caveat lector: I am not your happy canonical DC fan. I am a sorry little n00b who watched a few episodes of Justice League (/Unlimited), read a few compiled comics collections, sprinted through Batman Beyond, fangirled at The Dark Knight, and who will make 500000 assumptions about Batman and Co. 8D YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.

if I told you I felt ageless

Rating: PG13
Characters: Terry, LazarusPit!Bruce. Is that a comma, or a slash? Who knows - who can tell? Bruce is everything all at the same time. I don't think age even matters, for him.
Warnings: Set after the Batman Beyond episode "Out of the Past".

1241 words, and I have a bad feeling about this, master. Please let this (not?) turn into a series. Oh god oh god. Too late. Counting Down The Hours arc.

If I told you I felt ageless )

Need Terry icons and Bruce icons and Dick icons like woah, now.
karanguni: (HUGHES junshou)
I just. Batman Beyond. Terry McGinnis. Old Bruce. Just. Oh my god. Gotham. And. Terry. And Bruce. And. *flabbergasted*



I need to go back to studying now. But oh my god. In heaven. With small little Batman Beyond jflasfjkl







Terry: Tell me something. Why were you so sure those voices weren't coming from you?
Bruce: Well, first, I know I'm not psychotic.
Terry: I hope your other reasons are more convincing.
Bruce: And second, the voice kept calling me Bruce. In my mind, that's not what I call myself.
Terry: What do you call yourself?
Bruce: (turns back, pointedly)
Terry: Oh yeah. I suppose you would. (beat. leans in) But that's my name now.
Bruce: Hm. Tell that to my subconscious.

karanguni: (BONTEN is sleepy)
As I finish up some work with economics (oh god, that took me two days, this is evil) and fight my way through literature, a couple of fandom things, just for personal metamumbling.

When I grow up, I want to be an antivillain antihero anti-goddamned-everything, ma! )


Must stop watching Justice League on study breaks must stop watching justice league on study breaks must stop watching justice league on study breaks



Oh, and have we mentioned [livejournal.com profile] this_is_crack, yet?

A universe of unmapped grief and love
And new master light is beyond
The pleiades and plow and southern stars.

O soaring
Icarus of outworld, burn bright
The traceries of known skymarks,
Slide the highway planets behind
Your clear waxed wings.

Go conquer the everywhere left
Beyond your sad confinement
In a predicted bonehouse,
Witch thrown riddle of flesh
And water.

O soar until nothing
remains but great glittering holes
In the black godspun shirt over your head.
