First, Star Trek. Okay, I've seen lots of recs for Home on FFN, so I went to the author Lanaea's page and HOLY FUCKING SHIT. HER FIC HAS 187,963 WORDS IN IT. I'm sorry, but how can ANYOBODY have a STXI fic with that many words? I stay up all night writing three to four times a week and my fic is only just over 60,000, which I think is pretty damn good considering the movie just came out a few weeks ago. Is it just me, or is this crazy?

LOL, now I'm thinking maybe I should go back to FFN to get more comments! OMG I AM SO JEALOUS OF ALL HER REVIEWS! I love getting lots of comments, and LJ's usually good about that. LOL I'm so bad, I shouldn't bitch at all, I'm only on part 5 after all. And the comments I am getting are COMPLETE AWESOMESAUCE! \o/

Also, I'm kind of incredibly hesitant about reading Star Trek fic. Even if it's really good. IDK, a lot of it doesn't really work for me, even if it's highly rec'd. *shrugs* I love great writing, but I worry sometimes. You know, will my characterization change b/c of something this author did? Will this affect my plot? Etc. But I think it probably won't. I've read lots of fics in other fandoms I write for and they didn't affect my writing. Meh, maybe when I'm done with the first major plot arc in Apogee I'll give it a go. If I've got some other fics done to. Plus, I saved what's available, it's not like it's going anywhere, right? :P

And about TDK, I just realized something epic. I DO NOT RELATE AT ALL TO BRUCE WAYNE. I mean it. I think this is why I have problems writing him. His actions make zero sense to me. I mean, the Joker I get. Completely. One hundred percent. No problem. But Batman is like the craziest character ever created, srsly. A billionaire who decides to dress up in black leather to look like a bat and fight crime? I mean, that's nuts. Lock him up and throw away the key nuts. At least the Joker makes sense. Batman is so crazy I don't know what to do when I'm writing him. *headdesk*

EDIT: My stupid profile page isn't doing what I want it to. Damn HTML code. *kicks*

Summary: Batman was the only dream Bruce had ever wanted to have.
A/N: I know this is horribly late. There are no good excuses, but the one I've got is that I'm stupid and signed up for challenges during my last semester of grad school. So, my stupidity is my excuse! Two more late challenges coming soon, hopefully. *crosses fingers* This fic is some seriously fucked up, bizarre shit. This story makes me feel wrong and blasphemous. Also, Bible quotes FTW! \o/

So, I've been linked to two amazing things.

[livejournal.com profile] rdallyn ushered me to her LJ, where I found the new Joker comic!! It looks pretty fucking awesome, and you all should go and download it!!

Also, [livejournal.com profile] suvi83 introduced me to Lascaux from deviantart and her amazing Apples to Apples Batman comic! Which is clearly amazing. There are sixteen parts to it so far, and check out her gallery, or just the Apples to Apples section, to see them! It's probably funnier if you know the game, but still. AMAZING.

I'm working on finishing my SPN fics that are late, and the Christmas gift exchanges I signed up for. After that, I'll be putting up TBKS 9, hopefully. Then, I'm going to focus on finishing TBKS, b/c seriously. Let's get that shit done with, Y/Y?

Also: original story is going okay. But I have a crazy question. And this might sound weird. But whatever. WHAT MAKES GIRLS SEXY?!?! That is the question. What do you guys think are the most attractive qualities found in chicks? I mean, kinks are okay too (like glasses or whatnot), but I need to know because I have this feeling my female characters are not punk-ily sexy enough. Or something. *shrugs*

OK, I've never done this before. But, this year you can vote for SPN and TDK!! So, go click on the link and do so!

OMG, and totally vote for Christian Bale and Heath Ledger as Favorite On-Screen Match Up b/c duh. THEIR YAOI LOVE IS KNOWN TO ALL YAY. Also, I voted for TDK every time it was an option, and of course SPN. <3 You can vote every day too! [Except I totally voted for Iron Man as favorite Superhero.]

Vote here: http://www.pcavote.com

So anyway people, spread the word around! The other options for best sci-fi/fantasy show are Heroes (tough competition) and I think maybe Knight Rider (or something else easily shoved aside). So get fandom to vote! SPN must win! Although, seriously, why isn't BSG on the list? DUH. And OMG they give you widgets to advertise with YAY.

I'm on campus now in my Halloween costume, and it kind of rocks out LIEK WHOA. I just saw an interesting article that I had to link here:

http://movies.yahoo.com/feature/christophernolan_blog.html

It's Nolan saying he doesn't know if he's continuing the franchise or not. Which makes sense to me. He says all the rumors about more are untrue, blah blah blah. Also, I was linked to this by [livejournal.com profile] nachende--it's a section of an interview with Jensen.

We've heard that you've recently moved and that you're now the housemate of Jared Padalecki in Vancouver. Is this true?

"Yes, together, but with the purest of intentions, even if he's constantly harassing me for sexual favors." (laughs) "As a matter of fact, he bought this house with a friend of his last year and I was living together with a friend of mine in my apartment. Then, my friend moved back to L.A. Jared, then asked me to move in with him in that gigantic house of his. I think he was feeling a little lonely with just his dogs to keep him company. So, that's how we became the next housemates of Jareds place. It made a lot of sense, since we already spent a lot of time with each other while we're on set. We're pretty much like brothers and we're the best of friends. We hardly ever argue at all."

She couldn't find the source of the interview, but I figured I'd share anyway. I'm working on my fics, so they'll be up shortly. Maybe. Possibly. We shall see.

Happy Halloween!!

Checkt the above out, thank [livejournal.com profile] beatrice_otter for the link.

And if anyone's got any other Batman scans, preferably with the Joker in them, but at this point, anything's cool--just send them my way! Or let me know where to get them from.

THE CHARACTER RATING MEME


◤THE ASSOCIATION MEME◢
kowaiyoukai: (thinking)
Title: Meta: Batman/Joker
Author: [livejournal.com profile] kowaiyoukai
Rating: PG-13
Fandom: Nolanverse, Burtonverse, Batman Beyond.
Spoilers: Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, Batman, Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker.
Word Count: 1,161

This is just a few ideas I had after looking at various ways Batman and Joker have been portrayed in the movie verses. I'm a huge fan of Nolanverse Batman/Joker, but I found myself severely turned off by Burtonverse Batman/Joker. Also, I watched Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker, and I thought the relationship there fell somewhere in the middle.

So, hey, why not meta it?

When Batman/Joker works, and when it doesn't )
kowaiyoukai: (thinking)
Title: Meta: Burtonverse vs. Nolanverse
Author: [livejournal.com profile] kowaiyoukai
Rating: PG-13
Fandom: Nolanverse, Burtonverse
Spoilers: Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, Batman, Batman Returns, Batman Forever.
Word Count: 4,694

These are just a few thoughts that I had regarding the differences between the Burtonverse and Nolanverse. Most are focused on the portrayals of Batman and Joker. There are spoilers for these movies, obviously, so if you haven't seen them or don't want to be spoiled, please don't read! I'm focusing specifically on Batman by Burton and The Dark Knight by Nolan, thanks to the appearance of the Joker in both movies.

I wrote this because after seeing The Dark Knight, I (like so many others) became an instant Joker fan. So, I went out and rented Batman (which I've never seen, I know I suck) to see more of the Joker. Well, I was in for a surprise there. I knew the acting would be different, but the entire movie had differences throughout it that got me thinking. The fandoms for these movies must be so different, and the same could probably be said for every other Batman verse. Each one has specific rules and themes that the others don't necessarily match.

At any rate, I wanted to do a comparison of The Dark Knight and Batman because, as I see it, the Batman fandom is facing a huge influx of newbies with no previous experience in any Batman verse. I figure many of those people, like myself, will expect a lot of it to be similar to The Dark Knight. So, hey, I guess this ends up being my idea of the differences between the movies and what I would expect to find in the fandoms. That doesn't mean either fandom follows my reasoning, but I think the differences will probably show up in some fic, at the very least.

The summary of the rest of my post, or TL;DR: Nolanverse wins over Burtonverse in almost every way.

The differences between the Burtonverse and the Nolanverse )
kowaiyoukai: (OMG)
I fic-spammed, didn't I? Oh well. SUCK IT UP, F-LIST!! :D

On further news, [livejournal.com profile] crescent_grin linked me to this post, which lists must-have Batman/Joker graphic novels. They are as follows:

- The Killing Joke
- Arkham Asylum: A Serious House on a Serious Earth
- Batman: Secrets
- Going Sane
- Dark Knight Returns
- Batman: Two Faces
- Batman: Joker's Apprentice
- Batman: Haunted Knight
- Batman: The Man Who Laughs
- Joker: Devil's Advocate
- The Long Halloween
- Batman: Dark Victory
- The Man Who Laughs
- The No Man's Land run
- Arkham Asylum: Living Hell
- Batman Detective Comics #726
- Jokers Asylum (coming out soon, apparently?)

So, any others? And, does anyone know how much this will cost? Anyone have any scans of these online, or know where I can get them? I'll obviously have to wait until I start working again, damn you August!!, but in the meantime I can write fic.

BTW, how come I stopped reading comics? What happened there? I mean, it's not like anime is cheaper or something. Now I'm a zillion years behind on the Batman comics, and that's a pain in the fucking ass. Oh, and what else am I forgetting? In terms of fandoms, I mean. If there's something that I need to be reading/watching/whatever-ing, let me know!! I always get to the party late. :(

EDIT: LJ sucks, or I fail at HTML, either way. Oh, and lookit this!! I must have. And a Batman one, so I can yaoi. Well, no, I'll yaoi the smaller figures and just save the pretty big one for myself. Also, Joker posters and merch, Y/Y? Also, I think I might need a list of good Two-Face stuff, as well. *le sigh*

So, randomly: [livejournal.com profile] xtirpate said it's Sasuke's birthday today!! Is this true? I did not know. :O

Happy birthday, Sasuke!!

Also, I joined two friending memes--KuroFai and Batman/Joker. Man, I so need a mashup for that pairing. Bater? Jokeman? WTFDUDE. Someone with intelligence think one up that works, damn you all!! Never done these before, but what the heck, give it a try.

KuroFai Friending Meme!!

TDK Joker/Batman Friending Meme
{why so serious?}


Finally, I'm going to send out my story today to [livejournal.com profile] carola_chan and [livejournal.com profile] kosaka_fangirl. I know I said I would before... I LIED!! *headdesk* And my other non-LJ friend is getting stuff as well. So, maybe soon there will be feedback and editing? Yay?

That finally was also a lie. Finally finally: currently working on TBKS 9, three SPN fics (for the comms), five B/J fics (LMAO OMG B/J is a GREAT abbreviation), and a SPN/TDK crossover. Also the original stuff.

And truly last thing: if you've just friended me, hi and welcome!! I don't have the internet at my house and I respond randomly. Don't get mad if you think I've forgotten about you! I probably haven't, and you can always kick me to remind me. :P

Also, check out the awesome fanmixes at [livejournal.com profile] gothamradio!! I got the two Joker fanmixes, "Everything Burns" and "Ladies & Gentlemen, It's A Showtime", and the TRULY AWE-INSPIRING Batman/Joker fanmix "So Let's Be Enemies". People, download these and love them. TheB/ one is perfect--seriously perfect song choice. K, I'm done now. <3
kowaiyoukai: (confused)
So, today I went on my friends page and was SHOCKED to discover that no every single post was about TDK. I mean, I had some wincest, kurofai, and Harry/Draco in there. It confused me. Does everyone not share my immense and immediate fangirlish love of TDK? I conned my friend into going to see it tonight, so that'll be three times for me and [livejournal.com profile] siriuslyyellow. We're trying to get into IMAX at some point, not tonight, obviously. And I've also conned [livejournal.com profile] sizijee into coming with us next weekend! YAY!! <3

It's my new, and probably short-term, goal to spread Batman/Joker love around the world. <3

EDIT: OMG. Check this out. The Dark Knight is listed as the number 1 movie of all time in the IMDB's database, the fan-rated version. The top number 1 place was a tie between The Godfather and The Shawshank Redemption, both of wich scored a 9.1. TDK has an average rating of 9.4. Holy shit. I'm assuming it will go down as the malcontents pour in and rate it, you know, 1 and so on, but still. What an amazing feat for a movie that's been out for, like, five days. <3
kowaiyoukai: (Default)
Why are there no Batman/Joker LJ comms? Am I retarded or something? I searched the interests Batman, Batman/Joker, Joker/Batman, and The Dark Knight. NOTHING. I need an expert in this fandom to guide me. But I don't think I know anyone!!

*headdesk*
