I'm tired of everyone picking on my hunk of a man, Terry Long. If he shaved his beard, you guys would be all over him. In fact, I am going to do a series one day of photoshopping his beard out of the equation, and see how the reception of his scenes change. Is it because he doesn't have a stylish villain goatee instead? Or Ollie's sexy beard?

A happier time for Donna Troy! I'll showcase all of her loves: The First Love (Roy Harper), The Love of Her Life (Terry Long), and The Second Chance at Love (Kyle Rayner). But right now, only Terry Long, because he is way sexier than Roy and Kyle.

Marriage looked good on Donna. No, really! I mean, retiring her on a farm with a bad haircut and giving her a creepy baby plot didn't look good on her, but marriage did! Or maybe it was that red suit.

YOU WISH YOU HAD A LOVE LIKE THEIRS. Oh yeah, look at that. He's all ... charming and nearly 30 and making bad jokes. This is his second wedding, and he's very excited and confident about it! How can you beat a man who loves commitment that much? He's not jaded from his past divorce, which only took place like, under two years ago at this point. Terry is a man not afraid of the altar!

Terry Long was understandably popular with the ladies. All students on campus loved him, but the girls did in particular. And why wouldn't they?

Donna don't play that shit, though.

"DROOOOOOL." Could a sexier, smoother thing be said in such a moment? I think not. Just look at his boyish charm! Watch out, world, Terry Long's coming for your heart. He compliments Donna by telling her she looks like her Mother right before they bang on the plane. I'd be fanning myself at this point. Now, it could be said that Terry idealized Donna a bit since he was so obsessed with Greek mythology and Donna was tied to it, but ... that's okay, he paid for that later with the whole Greek Tragedy bit.

"To peace, wisdom, and unity." Donna, this is not a beauty pageant.

But look at how comforting Terry is! What a MAN.

And I mean it. Comforting. He does the right thing and doesn't make it about him when Donna has something traumatizing happen to her.

Here is Donna, looking like a delicious 80s watermelon. In the first panel, she seems to be checking out Terry's chiseled physique. And who wouldn't!?

But look at that, he doesn't press the issue!

Call it creepy all you want, the way Terry Long tries to flirt with both Koriand'r AND Dick Grayson at every turn. He's just a free-lovin' man! In the end, he knows his heart is with Donna. And look: He knows she's boss, and doesn't feel emasculated at all! Meanwhile, Dick talks about Kory's culture and their "savage" ways. Oh Dick! Stop changing the subject when Terry winks at you as he massages his wife's shoulders, it's obvious you want some of the Long.

Do you guys remember Jennifer Long?

... Yeah, neither does Donna.

So there was a time when Terry got fired from his job for not doing his homework like a good boy, and he blamed Donna over it and ran off for three days to brood. Dick move, right? Well, he came back! And we are given this sweet scene.

He is a THOUGHTFUL and considerate man! Sure, he might act self-indulged once in a while, but in the end he's always going to admit when he's wrong.

Prone to dramatic posing when he feels inadequate about being a civilian and dating a super heroine. With all of the pressures on masculinity, and the expectations of a man to provide for his woman -- and with Donna leading a life he's barely involved in, I could see why he would ... uh, pose dramatically and get upset. I would too.

They don't care about a ten year age difference. PFFFT and why should they? A LOVE LIKE THEIRS CANNOT BE DEFEATED. Unless it is by Starfire. But still.

Look at those two love birds! Fandom, stop throwing paper airplanes. BE MATURE. Like the beautiful love between Terry and Donna.

And ... yet again, Donna goes off with her friends, spending a majority of her time with them, while Terry is left to kind of sulk and overthink his unemployment, inadequacy, and loserdom. But that can't tear them apart!!!

And a relationship with Donna Troy is like a walk in the park! No obstacles will ever come in your way.



Okay, about that...

Wait, surely this is a misunderstanding!!

... :(

ADMIT IT, SCANS_DAILY. YOU ARE GUILTY OF THE CARDINAL SIN... OF NOT LOVING THIS MAN. But seriously, don't tell me you wouldn't date him.

The look didn't bother me so much -- Robert Reed when the Brady Bunch guys all got perms? Fun to laugh at. I just don't think a normal guy would be good enough for our phenomenally cosmic-powered titan, then throw in the age difference. Only through s_d did I find out that a writer was vicariously mackin' on a superheroine, which made the icky meter jump into the red zone. Droool.

The really weird thing? Donna drinking from a red can that's not a Soder or a Zesti. Can't figure it out, they must have totally made up a new one just for that issue.

Age stuff happens, but if you're a part of a group of couples where the only old person is really out of place... I don't know, I'm the first one to motto "love conquers all".

So Gail turned it around for me with Diana and Tom Tresser, I actually hated Tom until then. Mainly there was the problem that the mega-power I love was linked with a normal I did not know. Actually love Tom now, and want him to be introduced to Katarina Armstrong and so they can start on their way to an awesome spy OTP of blondness. You must now concede to me a half-point for open-mindedness. :)

What do you mean, her other two ships besides Terry, by the way? I think you mean three... Totally canon! :D

If you are talking about Starfire you made me very happy. Or Jade. Or Jason.

Ahem, pleez see icon! You get credit for guessing correctly, but lose points for taking three tries. :) But Donna/Kory works for me, too, especially if Babs/Dick is also in the picture. I need someone for Jade now... Oh, please, let's not get started, I could go all day! :D

Both Jade and Jason have the "Oh, you were dead, too?" "Yeah, totally doornail!" thing going for them. So Jade works for me.

And ooo, icons! All shiny, and here are my favorites...

1. 2. 3. 4.

You realize that I must now add you to retro's List of Foes with Icon Powers, and I will hate you with the fire of a dozen suns every time you put up a new one (although it wears off in about a day, maybe two).

Donna/Jason? A WORLD of no... for starters she's dating Dick's semi-psycho little brother. ICK!

Dick and Jason really don't have a big brother/little brother dynamic. They never have had much of relationship besides uneasy casual acquaintances who happen to legally belong to the same family.

Like Cuntfucius, I don't want them to actually get together because I don't see any way that could be written both plausibly and enjoyably, but it's obvious that Donna is sexually attracted to him on some level, and that's what makes them fun to ship.
