Barbara was insensitive, but I think Bruce over reacted. Would it honestly be too difficult to have a Batman (Who isn't Dick Grayson) who instead of walking out after Babs apologises said something like "It's okay. My life hasn't been like most."?
It'd be nice to see Bruce develop some empathy towards his friends.

liara_shadowsong: (do not want)
From: [personal profile] liara_shadowsong
>_< I think I'm going to go with hate. I like that song, and now I am going to associate it with that scene forever. I mean that association thing literally, by the way. I don't mind that I permanently associate everything by Billy Idol with Spike from Buffy, or every song of the big band genre with Steve Rogers. Or Tron lines with the Kingdom Hearts games, and thereby Sora/Riku/Kairi OT3. But I *don't*, actually, want to associate the music from Anastasia with Bruce having a psychological break from reality. .....Despite that, I would totally draw this scene if I was better at drawing men, or just better at drawing in general. (I mean, I could draw Steph and Babs and Cass just fine, although Babs' chair might need some references. Tim is girly enough to BS my way through pretty easy, and I could probably struggle my way through Dick and Jay with some reference pictures. But I don't think I could do Bruce himself justice *at all*, and I've never been good at drawing individuals as young as Damian, they just turn out looking like tiny adults, which ends up looking kind of Uncanny Valley at times. Plus I'm rubbish at foreshortening and related aspects of perspective when pertaining to posing humans in even remotely complicated ways - I seriously need to get one of those little posable wooden dollies they have at Michael's - and my backgrounds aren't much better. In short, if you desperately want to see this drawn, can't find anyone willing who has any skill at all, and don't mind that it looks like it was drawn by someone who hasn't taken a drawing class since she was fifteen, please feel free to contact the lady whose only formal drawing class actually was when she was fifteen and whose teacher despaired of her apparently horrifying tendency to use mechanical pencils for linework unless required to use proper sketching materials, aka me. Because dammit, my mind is already laying out the storyboard without my consent when I should be finishing re-reading the material for a small online review quiz I need to take sometime in the next twenty-five hours. >_< Haaaaate.)

liara_shadowsong: (Default)
From: [personal profile] liara_shadowsong
Gah! It's okay, really, but I'm going to need to make sure I don't watch that movie for the next year or so. I'll just watch Mulan instead if I get the urge to see Anastasia again before the association fades enough to not make me think of Batman instead.

One of my friends from undergrad can draw and likes Batman, but my grad school is in the Midwest and hers is on the East Coast, so I haven't seen her in person in forever and would feel majorly awkward suggesting drawing this scene. Plus, it might mentally scar her for life. It would feel even more awkward to suggest it to any artists I've spoken with online, considering that most conversations with them basically amount to me flailing over their far superior artwork and its hilarity or adorableness or whatever, and them thanking me. And I'm rubbish at comedic images too, I'm just tempted to try anyways. I mean, I have that assignment I have to finish tomorrow, and I am working this weekend... but only five hours each Saturday and Sunday... Hm. *evil grin* If it turns out, I'll stick it on DeviantArt, send you a link, and put a link in the summary whatnot to your written out scene here. If it doesn't turn out... it doesn't turn out. Might be a while, even if it does turn out, though. I'm notoriously easily distracted when it comes to things like this.

Yes, Billy Idol. Find a picture of Billy Idol. Then find a picture of Spike. Look at them side by side. Then read this quote from the Buffy episode "Sleeper":
Bouncer: Hey, sweetheart. If you wanna go in, go ahead.
Buffy: Oh, uh, actually, I need some help. I'm looking for this guy. Bleach-blonde hair, leather jacket, British accent? Kind of sallow, but in a hot way?
Bouncer: Yeah, yeah, I know the guy. Billy Idol wannabe?
Buffy: Actually, Billy Idol stole his look from—never mind. Has he been here?

Also, James Marsters, Spike's actor, sings. Quite well. His singing voice is really very sexy, imho. >/////< Actually, for that matter, listen to a Billy Idol song, and then a James Marsters song. Depending on what songs of each you pick, you might hear some slight degree of similarity - for example, Idol's "Dancing with Myself" vs. Marsters' "Bad".

Please do try to find a better artist than me. Also, I agree you should totally amuse as many other people on tumblr with the scene as you can, even if none of them draw.

You like Mulan, too? Yay! And... Actually, I took some very basic voice lessons during undergrad as elective classes, just because I could. We'd perform a song with a pianist accompanying once or twice during the term as our exams. Guess what I picked to perform as one of my pieces (if I recall correctly, the final exam performance of the second and last of the classes I took)? Yep. Utterly gorgeous song, don't know that I really did it justice, but I gave it my all. (And, regardless, it was certainly an improvement over the one performance I did the first term, when I came close enough to fainting that a friend of mine had actually stood up to catch me. God, that was embarrassing. But I still finished my performance, which is something, right? I'm sure it gave my poor accompanist quite a fright, though. >_<)

liara_shadowsong: (alfred)
From: [personal profile] liara_shadowsong
Are we entirely certain that Alfred isn't, like, immortal or something? I mean, seriously. He's not actually seen in Batman Beyond (so obviously, he can't be in Gotham then, I don't think), but I don't remember anyone ever saying that he'd died, even though by that point Bruce is probably in his seventies or eighties. Plus, while his appearance varies from medium to medium, I don't recall him ever looking older or younger throughout pretty much anything in a way that can't be attributed to different artists. (How old is Alfred supposed to be, anyways? Because I don't think he was particularly young when he started raising Bruce, and he still seems pretty spry for an older gentleman.)

OMG. Maybe Alfred is a vampire. Or possibly an aspect of one of the Endless or something. O_O But realistically speaking, I don't know if it's possible for that much awesome-ness and badass-ness to be concentrated into one single mere mortal. I mean, he raised the Goddam Batman all by himself from age eight onward. He's the person who single-handedly keeps the entire Batclan functioning and somewhat capable of coexisting with the general public. Think about it.

Yeah, one of my flatmates learned this last year. His girlfriend was teasing him at the pub and threatening to pour her drink over his head, she did accidentally spill some on his head and he grabbed his coat and left the pub. As soon as he got outside, he realised how dramatic he had been, but had to go home because he would have made a fool of himself if he walked back in after storming out.

I think he should have came in and played it off like he was jokeing. The thing is people forget once you lose composure, whatever point you try to make falls to the wayside.

He could have handled it better, but I doubt he would have been able to pull that off. We all had a laugh about it later on though. You're absolutely right about the composure thing though.

Batman frequently IS childish though... as even the Joker notes in "Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker"

"Behind all the sturm and batarang, you're just a little boy in a playsuit, crying for mommy and daddy! It'd be funny if it weren't so pathetic. [pause] Oh, what the heck, I'll laugh anyway!"

Oh I know he is stuck in childhood, but Batman is still well...you know a guy or should I say a tough spirit. Even some children do not run out of a room chocking back tears, because the big mean red headed lady hurt their tender sensibilities.

Superman never cried, when batman wash gunning for his self esteem master psychologist my foot.

Hey, Bruce, you know who else lost their birth parents at a young age? Barbara. And she doesn't bring it up every time someone mentions other people have parents to make them feel guilty.

Honestly, I really didn't like how Horrocks wrote Bruce, much of the time. Or Barbara, for that matter.

I really don't think this is how she'd have reacted. I think she'd have said "Fine, you hated Alfred. Can we focus on Cassandra now?"

This. So. Hard.

And for someone who lost both her parents at a young age, became Batgirl, AND was paralysed by one of Batman's worst foes, she turned very well adjusted and remained optimistic. Seriously, Bruce needs to grow up.

actually at that point in time Bruce was probably traveling the world away from Alfred on his training.

If there's one thing about human nature I think Batman would not understand it's family drama between parent and child.

Also, Bruce might know about teens hating their parents because he's a parent. He and Dick definitely went through some rough times when Dick was about that age.

This is where I plug my ears and say Flawed Gems is all that counts. ;p

Really, though, I don't think any other Post-Crisis continuity contradicts it - simply doesn't address it.

(There's that Gotham Knights arc, but Barbara's parents still died, it's just altered it so they both died at the same time.)

Despite Bruce's inner temper tantrum, Barbara does in fact speak truth. And she herself is living proof of that.

Say it with me now: "My parents are DEAAAAAD!"

I feel bad for admitting this, but I seriously read this as "My parents deserved to DIIIIIIIIEEEE" for a minute there. Its probably because *this* image first came to mind:

If they're going to make Batman that emotionally broken, I think they should go all the way and have him constantly bring up his dead parents to anybody who will listen.

"Master Bruce, I made you waffles."

"You know who else made me waffles? My parents. On the night they were murdered in an alley."

Really, Batman's always been on flimsy ground with his temper tantrums considering that there are almost no superheroes ever who have two living parents or a trauma-free childhood. Heck, his buddy in blue tights lost his home planet and his entire species twice and doesn't feel the need to go whining about it at every opportunity.

The way he trolls people on the Internet in Batman Inc and seems to enjoy it, that would surprise me, coming from "The Batman"...
