"Live Without" is a Robin-centric story taking place in a version of the Teen Titans animated series universe, expanded to include characters and locations from the greater DC Universe. My universe is mostly cobbled together with bits from Batman and related comics and Batman: The Animated Series, along with a hefty dose of stuff I made up from scratch. The story takes place after the end of the Teen Titans series and the movie Teen Titans: Trouble in Tokyo, when circumstances force Robin to return to Gotham City.

The general rating for this fic is T (Teen), mostly for violence and death. Some het relationships are explored, but this really might as well be gen. It's a character study/coming-of-age type thinger, an exploration into growing up, dealing with loss and change and moving forward. And yeah, I'm also writing it for the crime-fighting action, intrigue, and romance.

The title is taken from the song of the same name by The Panics, because it worked. Otherwise this story... really has nothing to do with that song in any way.

"Live Without" will be posted when I have stuff to post. It will be as long as it needs to be to accomplish what I have in mind. (It's going to be loooooooooong.) At this point it is completely un-beta'd, so... bear with me.

Due to a conversation I had with Ivan the other day, he is now aware of what a gigantic Batman nerd I am. And so, because he is wonderful, he gave me these links to Batman-related Robot Chicken skits. <3

Batman, Two Face, Hot Chocolate.

Jingle bells, Batman smells, Robin laid an egg~!
zolac_no_miko: (Call Batman)
Okay, so, some of you may remember when I acquired a copy of the 1949 Batman and Robin movie serial at Office Depot for $10? And it was awful and awesome and hilarious? ...I should probably mention for posterity that they did manage to hoodwink me in a major plot point, so... the writers were not as dumb as I thought they were? I dunno that it was clever writing so much as cheating....

ANYWAY. Not long after I acquired that classic gem, I found the 1943 Batman movie serial for $10... I think at a Safeway? So I bought that too, DUH. I've only just now gotten around to starting to watch it.

OH. EM. GEE.

Okay, so this one is actually a much higher-quality Batman product. Better acting all around, better costumes... Batman and Robin are actually semi-competent.... Luckily this film is saved from not being a circus of lulz by being filmed and set during WWII. So... war propaganda! And, even better, RACISM!

I started to realize what I was in for when they opened a scene on Gotham's Little Tokyo, which had become a ghost town as Gotham law-enforcement had, and I quote, "wisely rounded up the shifty-eyed Japs." At which point I say, "...HOLY SHIT DID THOSE WORDS ACTUALLY JUST GO INTO MY EARS JUST NOW?!" :DDDDDDD

The Main Villain of the piece, is, in fact, meant to be Japanese, but as all the actual ethnic-Japanese in the country have been "wisely rounded up", what we have instead is an incident of... yellow-face??? The character is very authentically named Tito Daka; his hair is black and slicked back, he has a skinny little mustache, his eyes are all made-up to look dark and squinty, and he has a vaguery Asian-sounding accent. There's a truly amazing moment when someone he's captured exclaims something about his "twisted Oriental brain!" Daka has an army of EVIL AXIS CYBERMAN ZOMBIES that he controls through a special microphone, and radium-powered ray-gun technology. :DDDD

Bruce, Dick, and Alfred are FABULOUS, btw. Dick is ADORABLE. The one in Batman and Robin is... kinda dumb as a brick. This Dick is smarter, younger, more exuberant, and SO MUCH A BETTER ACTOR OMG. He has kind of a weirdo derp face, but... HE'S PRECIOUS. You get to see him weiring PIMPIN' SCIENCE GOGGLES, and also looking like a tiny GQMF in his pimp-ass suit at a restaurant. And and and Bruce and Dick actually go UNDERCOVER in COSTUMES so we get to see PAPERBOY DICK AAAAAAAWWWW HE'S SO CUTE!!! And he does many classic Robin crotch-dives! :DDD This is important. *nodnod*

Bruce is... kind of a special panda, omg. Just... asdfjkl;ljhgsd SCENE:

[Batman and Robin have small-time crook tied up for questioning in their "Bat's Cave"... small fluttering shadows can be seen]

Crook: [terrifed] What are those?!
Batman: [airily] Just some of my bats.

Also he uses appropriated evidence, which just happens to be a high-powered future weapon, to prank unsuspecting Alfred! And he and Dick have a big jolly laugh about Alfred's terror. Wtf? XD ...Bruce, just say no to firing ray guns in the house.

Finally, in case I wasn't already in love, Batman and Robin take, like, any excuse they can get to come CRASHING THROUGH WINDOWS at people. ...Oh man, I'm only two episodes in, this is going to be SO. AWESOME.

zolac_no_miko: (Bad.  Ass.)
In all the travel/holiday kerfluffle I completely missed the premiere episodes of Young Justice. So I watched it this morning. Here are my thoughts:

The animation is very pretty; gorgeous, even. Everything's pretty high-tech, almost futuristic, but they haven't messed with the costumes. I know from the Internet News back in the day that Robin is supposed to be Dick Grayson, never mind that this is YOUNG JUSTICE, okay, and Superboy's in it. That just seems wrong. I'm hoping he'll step up to the important job of SB's bff in Timmy's absence, though. Anyway, Dick dresses like Timmy (in the red, ohnoesmybffSuperboykickedthebucket costume, no less) and he's got Tim's tech savvy, but if anything his personality reminds me of Jay. Less Dick Grayson goofball and more smirking self-satisfaction to the point that I want to ruffle his hair and coo, just to annoy him. ALTERNATE UNIVERSES ARE FUN! But whatev, I can deal. This is nothing new, after all. I was raised on DC animated.

They did this thing twice where Robin laughed, and it was all echoey-in-the-shadows and CREEPY. It was kinda weird. Also, the one time we see Dick in civvies he's wearing these ohyeahI'msocool shades that completely cover his eyes. ...Dorkface. ^_^

Meanwhile, I keep finding myself distracted by how Superboy is SMOKING HOT. And YES, I KNOW, TEENAGER. SHUT UP. ...Actually, it's much worse than that. He's only sixteen months old. DX

Anyway... new show! This should be fun. In other news, I'm going to have 'Fuck Me, Ray Bradbury' stuck in my head for the rest of my life. THANKS A LOT, DAR.

...Passion Pit concert tonight!

Notes: A quick note on my Poison Ivy; last chapter I introduced her as "Dr. Pamela Isley". In case anyone was confused... I believe her having a Ph.D is strictly an invention of Batman: The Animated Series, and she's not a doctor in the comics? Whatever, I've always liked that particular character detail; I think she deserves to be a doctor. It's my AU... AH DO WHAT AH WANT!!

Notes: This is perhaps less a story and more a daydream I had on the bus about what should've and would've happened in the Season One finale if Teen Titans had the rights to the Batman character. (It's always been my opinion that the only thing that could possibly improve that show would be increased levels of Batman.) Dunno that it's my best work, but I really enjoyed writing it... on pen and paper, at bus stations and at work, on breaks and between phone calls. Completely un-beta'd; pulled a title out of a hat. Quality!

This way to fic containing copious amounts of headcanon. )

It's March 21st, which means it's Dick Grayson's birthday! At least, until they change the canon again. ^_^ So, happy birthday to the bestest Robin that ever was! *huggles him*

Richard's here hanging out, which is good fun. Last evening Dar made pasta from scratch, and the most amazing pasta sauce the world has ever seen, and really fantastic bread, and chocolate pasta, also from scratch, which we ate with strawberries and syrup and the caramel sauce she made and walnuts. IT WAS AMAZING I ATE SO MUCH OF IT AND THEN MY TUMMY HURT. Lauren came over as well and we watched Top Gear. It was good times.

Today (well, technically yesterday) it was beautiful (!) and sunny (!!) and warm (!!!), so Richard and Lauren and I went hiking in Forest Park, which was fabulous.

Then we had our Aphelion poker log, which was the most amazing epic failure due some stupid flash caching glitch that has been plaguing AIM for months. In 2 1/2 hours we managed to play one hand of Texas hold-em. Of course they started out with lots of banter and bickering, so there was that... we got partially through the hand and Hatter showed up, but she couldn't get into the chatroom. Lauren tried to invite her, and as a result got booted as well and couldn't get back in either. We spent half an hour twiddling our thumbs while she tried and failed to get in; eventually she made a new username and got in with that. By this point, however, it was almost bedtime for Paula, so we had to scramble to at least finish the one hand.

Meanwhile, in-game, the hand was also kind of a dismal failure. The flop was king of hearts, two of clubs, six of spades, the turn was queen of spades, and the river was a five of spades. I forget what everyone else had in the hole, but Robin had a ten of spades and a seven of clubs, and everyone had similarly dismal pocket cards; Church had the best hand with a pair of sixes. So the result was that everyone checked all the way through until the river, when Robin decided he could bluff having a spade flush and put fifty cents in. And he got away with it too... earning a grand total of fifteen imaginary cents (the small and big blinds, imaginary because they have no actual money to play with so the chips are worthless) and Church's track pants. ...YAY.

...So we're going to try to continue tomorrow, and we're all downloading Skype as a backup plan in case AIM hates us again. -_-;;
zolac_no_miko: (BATMAN!!)
My dreams were interesting again last night. I was part of some sort of women's sports team. We were part of some sort of competition, where your team had to compete in multiple sports. I think the members of the team were largely from my high school soccer team, because I remember being glad that I wasn't completely socially ostracized this time around. (My soccer team mostly hated me, I think.) We played soccer, and football, and took turns boxing against members of another team. The boxing was interesting since I knew nothing at all about the sport. Also, at some point it turned into aquatic boxing, and I gave myself blisters and/or frostbite on my toes. It was horrible.

Then I dreamed that Robin (my Robin/Teen Titans Robin, although occasionally it was me in a Robin suit lol) was participating in some sort of charity fundraiser, in cooperation with some education superintendent or other, to improve public schools. It was called "Hugs for Kids" or something silly like that, and was pretty much exactly what it sounds like. Robin would go around to different public schools, and kids would pay two or three dollars (or beg the money off their parents) to get a hug from Robin, or a high-five, or a handshake, or an autograph, or take a picture with him, whatever they want. And the money would go to improving their school: construction of a new building, or new science equipment/sports equipment/books for the library, or a training seminar for the teachers, stuff like that. ...It was REALLY CUTE, and kind of a nice idea, actually. When I'm famous and/or a superhero, I might have to do something like this. So yeah, much of my dream was Robin standing outside a building on some middle school campus with a whole line of kids waiting their turn, and asking each one, "What do you want?" and then giving them a hug or a high-five or whatever they asked for. One odd kid wanted to be bitten, which Robin thought was REALLY WEIRD, but he sort of shrugged it off, bit the kid on the shoulder, and sent them on their way. Then there was the kid who, when asked what he wanted, dragged Robin a short distance away from the other kids and told the Boy Wonder he wanted to come out to him. Robin was like, "...What?! o_O" The kid explained that he was gay, but he was afraid to tell his parents or his friends or anyone. But he wanted to tell someone. He wanted to tell Robin. So poor Robin was all awkward and terrified to be having this conversation, but he also felt kind of honored, and he managed not to make a complete ass of himself. And then the kid was like, "I also want to give you something," and Robin's like, "Okay, what?" and the kid quickly kissed him on the lips and then ran away. And poor Robin was like, "O.O OMG WTF JUST HAPPENED?!" XDDDD I liked cute gay kid. ^_^ ...And then there was the sketchy 21-year-old who somehow managed to get in the line, and they tried to proposition Robin for sex, and Robin's like, "UM. HOW ABOUT NO." And they're like, "We could go inside the building, the kids don't have to see," and Robin's like, "SRSLY NO, HOW ABOUT YOU GO AWAY BEFORE I HAVE TO HURT YOU, YOU SICKO. D:<" And then they tried to offer him $1000 to do it and he was like, "OHMIGOD WHO DO YOU THINK I AM?!?! DDD:<" ...So that was weird, and Robin was not pleased.

...Anyway, old thread is old, but for my own reference Robin did talk to Lackadaisy's Mitzi May on [livejournal.com profile] dear_mun.

And now, a meme!

I had to do it. Is anyone surprised? It's FOOD. )
zolac_no_miko: (God-King of Hostilistan)
So. Stuff that's gone on since my last post.

The weekend before last, Dar, James, and I went to CC Slaughters, a nightclub in downtown Portland. A gay nightclub. So I can cross that off of my Lifetime To-Do list.

...It was a very gay nightclub. And it was AMAZING. This is my new favorite place in Portland. We got there at 10 to discover that they had $1 drink specials from 10-11, so we ordered as many as we could. Even better, there were free lollipops. It didn't take us long to befriend some gay boys... first an awkward but cute guy named Andrew, then the more flamboyant and outgoing guy who was flirting with him. I was amused to see that the dance floor was empty for the longest time, but as soon as they put Lady Gaga on it was packed. We danced with some guys, we danced with some girls, we met a lot of people but by now I've forgotten their names. I got a lot of compliments on my hair, my outfit, and my dancing, so that felt good. The group we ended up hanging with (a couple of the guys were kind enough to watch our stuff) seemed to be of the general opinion that I was adorable. ^_^ One of the two girls we were dancing with initially that adopted us into the group had the hots for me, and was very disappointed when she discovered in a whispered conference with James that I was, in fact, straight. But just to be sure she double-checked with me. XD; ...I felt kind of bad, actually. The story of my life: Angela, Breaker of Hearts.

I dirty-danced with Dar, and James, and handful of strangers of both genders. ...And then there was that one guy, The Slut. We spent the whole night watching him have sex-with-clothes-on with half the people on the dance floor, both genders. Then he got his hands on Dar. Then he got his hands on ME. I... I'm not sure I can articulate what that was like. That was definitely the dirtiest I've gotten with anyone, ever. I was completely dominated. ...I-I don't think I'm technically a virgin anymore. @_@

So anyway, that was a lot of fun. This past weekend involved a tsunami scare in Hawaii (nothing happened, the waves were tiny) and a trip to the Japanese Garden on Free-Admissions Day. We thought this was a fabulous idea since it had been such a mild winter, and all the flowers were blooming, and it was such a gorgeous day. ...Unfortunately, half of Portland had the same idea. The calming, peaceful affect of the garden was somewhat ruined by the noise and mobs of people EVERYWHERE. ...Oh well. And then Lauren and I went to the Jonathan Coulton concert, which was freaking EXCELLENT. Paul and Storm were the best opening act I've ever had the pleasure of seeing, and were worth half the ticket price by themselves. Seriously, I busted a gut laughing. And JoCo was, of course, amazing. And the lady who was doing the lights wins my eternal affection, because she was a snarky little firecracker. She'd do all these clever little visual puns with the lights, and when JoCo and Paul and Storm started joshing with her, she showed them who was boss by turning the lights out on them and threatening to crush them with the projection screen. Also the audience was amazing and outgoing and witty and fun.

...Also how did I not know that "I'm Your Moon" was about Charon and Pluto? IT MAKES SO MUCH SENSE NOW!! I loved the song before and now it's even better. And Lauren still wins for independently making the astronomy connection a few hours earlier when she suggested it was a good Aphelion theme song.

Speaking of Aphelion, if the addition of Carrie's Master didn't make me happy enough (you and he are brilliant, btw! <3 <3), my exploits on [livejournal.com profile] dear_mun have finally paid off, because I-pin's mun succumbed to temptation and joined the game! (Unfortunately, I immediately lost the game right after.) This is brilliant because I-pin is adorable, and with both her and the Master there will be lots of fun time-travel shenanigans. And I'm pleased for Robin, because now he has someone his own age to talk to, and we already know the two of them make good friends, and he has someone to spar with, and he has someone to be all impressed by his egotistical awesome self, and she's a girl, and she's cute, and once he's gotten over Starfire things are going to be HILARIOUS. ...Seriously, it's hard enough already to keep him from unintentionally flirting. ...NAUGHTY DICK GRAYSON. *swats him with a rolled-up newspaper* DOWN BOY.

...Speaking of segues [livejournal.com profile] dear_mun, Robin's been talking to a Sophie Hatter, an Aziraphale, and an AMAZING Marvin. Robin also felt the need to complain about his weird-ass mun. ...What? Is planning out the progression of my character's puberty really that strange? ...Okay, yeah, it kind of is. ^_^;; But he finally got to talk to a Tim (animated! :DD) and a truly excellent Joker, and there was a little Aphelion get-together with Richard and the Master as well.

......I have an interview at Parry Center on Wednesday. OH MY GOD WISH ME LUCK. I want/need this job like burning. T_T
zolac_no_miko: (BATMAN!!)
Last night I dreamed the world ended. My dad became a tobacco farmer and there were monkeys everywhere. )

...Then my alarm went off, so that was the end of that nonsense.

Old news on [livejournal.com profile] dear_mun... THIS was the most amazing freaking crack, ohmigod. Um, spoilers for FMA manga? Maybe? I dunno that it spoils anything, so much as makes everything better. I dunno, I'm not caught up, and I just barely know enough to understand what's going on. BUT IT'S AMAZING. Also, for my own reference, Robin spoke with Kim from Deathproof, ahahaha amazing!! The conversation turned out to be much more entertaining than I thought it would be when Kim told Robin he could probably get stunt work. And then Robin spoke to Jason Todd (Miller!verse), which, yeah, is just about as awkward as you'd expect it to be.

I'm deeply obsessed with Top Gear (BEST. SHOW. EVER.), I'm madly in love with Richard Hammond, and guys, I want to share this with you, because it may be the best thing that's ever happened to me: html Comics, a free online library of over three hundred thousand comic books that at least claims, fairly convincingly I think, to be legal. TT_TT Oh my god you guys, this is seriously every comic ever. Although, they lag behind a bit on current publications, but who cares?! No more camping in Powell's for me! I'm reading my way through Teen Titans Go! right now, finally. Next on the agenda is finishing Fables, then... oh god, everything I can find with Deadpool in it I think, then every Batman comic ever, then... idefk, The Spirit?! Then EVERY COMIC EVER. ALL OF THEM. ALPHABETICALLY. ...James, bb, I love u. TTT_TTT

...Also, I really need a job. Like, I really do. ...But I don't waaaaaaaant one! T_T

Okay, stuff that only I care about and has no relevance to the real world, but I've been musing about recently. I realized recently that the odds of my Robin ever interacting with his Batman in an rp scenario are astronomically small. Because he doesn't technically exist. Batman never appears in the Teen Titans canon. Which means that no one will ever want to play him.

...How incredibly soul-crushingly depressing is that? A Robin forever without a Batman! i_i

EDIT: Completely unrelated, stole this from Ryan. Every post is repost repost. Too Late to Apologize, Declaration of Independence-style. GUYS. THIS IS PRETTY MUCH THE MOST EXCELLENT THING SINCE EVER.

AHAHAHAHAHA THE SAINTS WON!!

Man, that was an epic game! It was really close with lots of drama... the Colts had a ten-point lead in the first quarter, largely due to their quarterback's surgical precision with a football. The Saints got it back by pulling some ridiculously ballsy moves (short kickoff in a Super Bowl game, who does that?! :DD), and then there was that amazing interception and touchdown! When they scored a touchdown with three minutes on the clock, it was over. Final score 31-17, and the Saints win the Super Bowl for the first time in franchise history!! Man, can I pick a winner! The one team in all of pro football I decided to care about, and look at them now! :DDDDDD ...I bet half of New Orleans died of alcohol poisoning last night. XDD; Uncle Ivan said most schools were closed today, too.

Fun fact: last night's game was the most-watched program in television history. Wow.

So anyway, after a minor cold last week, I had a fairly fun weekend. Dar and I got caught up in Supernatural and The Vampire Diaries. I did a fun log on Saturday, in which I got Robin horribly injured. Whoops~! :DD (Watch him complain about it on [livejournal.com profile] dear_mun. He is reeeeaaallly pissed at me. XDD;) And then a bunch of us went to see Demons at Cinema 21. That movie was ridiculous. 80's slasher flick involving an evil movie theater full of demon zombies with amazingly bad lines and incredible scenes such as the hero and his new girlfriend riding over the theater seats on a motocross bike while stabbing demon zombies with a katana. And then there was the part of the movie where the ceiling started groaning, and Dar and I thought the theater was going to get all House of Leaves on them, but no, it was just a RANDOM HELICOPTER FALLING THROUGH THE CEILING, wtf. ...And then there was, you know, the Super Bowl.

I had the scariest dream last night. DD: )

Will and I have plans to go swing dancing tomorrow, FINALLY. So that should be fun.

Also, Lauren and James, this is for you. I apologize for inflicting Lady Gaga on you, but listen to this. ...And then think of Old Gregg.
