I'm doing holiday cards again! If you want one from me, I'd be happy to send one. Leave your name and address on this post and I'll get a card in the mail to you. Comments are screened, so only I will be able to see it if you leave your name and address :) If you want me to send it to your username or an alias, that's totally fine - I'll send it to whatever name you want me to. Anon commenting is turned on, too, since I have some people from tumblr who wanted cards as well and didn't have an LJ account.

I default to Christmas cards, but if you'd like a card for a different holiday or just a generally winter-themed card, just let me know and I'll send one of those!

I'd also love to get cards - if you're sending them out and are willing to send one to me, let me know that and I'll send you my address in return :)

Title: After the Storm
Author name: ariadne83 and somehowunbroken
Beta name: camshaft22 and shinysylver
Characters/Pairing: Jason Todd/Tim Drake, Damian Wayne, Talia al Ghul, OCs
Fandom/Universe: goes AU post-Red Hood: Lost Days
Rating: PG-13
Word count: 48,629
Warnings: offscreen minor character death of two characters
Summary: Jason is getting ready to start his reign as the Red Hood when he overhears a conversation that will change his life. He ends up giving up his plans for revenge and taking on a new identity so he can raise the son he never thought he'd have. When his safety and anonymity are threatened by the Wayne Foundation 's representative, Tim Drake-Wayne, all Jason can do is keep his head down and hope for the best - but he may have to redefine "best" in order for that to work out.

Title: myths wrongly interpreted
Author: somehowunbroken
Beta: camshaft22
Artist: kitsunebaba (art masterpost here)
Characters/Pairing: Tim Drake, Damian Wayne (gen)
Fandom/Universe: Gotham-verse; DCnU/Batman Inc. 8 fix-it fic
Rating: R
Word count: 12,232
Warnings: major character death (but he gets better), violence
Summary: Tim has lost enough in his life. He isn’t going to lose anything - or anyone - else, not if there’s a chance that he can fix it.

Spoilers for: Batman Incorporated 8, Teen Titans 18 (and vague Teen Titans happenings to this point); the Death of the Family storyline; vague Demon Knights through 18 to be safe (but you don’t have to be familiar with it at all); Tim Drake’s pre-reboot history

Author’s notes: I knew I was going to have to write fix-it fic for Batman Incorporated 8 before I even read it. I didn’t expect the story to develop quite how it did, but I definitely accomplished what I wanted to here. By and large, I mashed Bat-canons together at will, because trying to figure out where Batman Incorporated fits into Gotham at large is a headache for someone much more devoted to canon than I.

Title is from Without Mythologies by The Weakerthans, which is one of the Robin-est songs I’ve ever heard, no matter who’s filling the short pants at the time.

If you’d like more specific warnings, or more info on what exactly is spoiled, message me! I’m happy to explain.

Title: Hoodwing'd
Author: somehowunbroken
Fandom: DCU
Characters: Dick Grayson/Jason Todd, Tim Drake/Damian Wayne
Word Count: 2,795
Rating: R
Notes: This isn't from a specific canon or timeline. I'm assuming it's a hazy future in which everyone lives, and it's definitely at a point where everyone is of age.
Summary: Dick and Jason seem to think it's hilarious to make out where Tim and Damian are going to walk in on them. Naturally, Tim and Damian take revenge.

Title: As The River Loves The Sea And The Ocean And That One Big Lake
Author: somehowunbroken
Fandom: none
Characters: Fic/Reader (anthropomorphic)
Word Count: 1,015
Rating: I can't even tell you. Is "crack" a rating? I'll go with PG-13, I guess.
Notes: Written for badsexfic 2013: Anthropomorphic Fic/Reader. The fic isn't very good, in fact, it's full of grammatical and spelling mistakes, as well as containing some very poorly chosen metaphors. it tries to get the reader to like it by showing off how ~creative~ it can be. (actual fic can contain smut as a way of getting the reader to like it, though the smut turns out to be as corny as the fic)
Summary: Your name is Dearly Beloved We Are Gathred Here Today, and you are in love.

As The River Loves The Sea And The Ocean And That One Big Lake

(Also, good God, I am sorry for the utter crack. /o\)

This is part four of "it's not that we're bitter (it's just that our eyes are open)." Part one is here; part two is here; part three is here.

The city featured in this cover is Singapore.

(The day that I do not include "Barricade" on a mix about the Robins will be a strange day indeed.)

This is part three of "it's not that we're bitter (it's just that our eyes are open)." Part one is here; part two is here.

This is part two of "it's not that we're bitter (it's just that our eyes are open)." Part one is here.

Please note that while several of these songs have themes about sex, that isn't what I'm implying. Sometimes I include a song just for a certain line, or the way it feels to me overall, rather than the actual meaning. This isn't a project about Bruce sleeping with his Robins at all - though, as always, your personal interpretation is just as valid as mine, and if that's how you see things, I'm not here to stop you. :)

The city featured in this cover is New York.

This is the first part of a fanmix project that has been in the works for quite a while now. The idea hit me around my birthday - yes, for those keeping track, that was August - and I pulled some songs together. I worked on a cover for it, adding new songs to the list as I went, and soon realised that it was going to be a much larger project than I was expecting. I stopped, gave it some thought, and have worked on it here and again since that time. Nearly eight months later, it's ready to share.

I wanted to present the journey that the Robins go through, from fledgling crimefighters to diligent children, from rebellious to returning. There's a good deal of fandom belief and personal headcanon in the song choices, but I'm going to limit my actual commentary on each piece so it's easier for each of you to find your own meaning in it (though some parts are fairly clear on that front). The overarching theme is one of growth: that as children, things seem bright, but the luster wears off as you go. There's always hope in the end, though, as long as you remember to look for that light.

Each part hart a cover featuring a photograph of a different city. The first is Liverpool. (Keep an eye on the covers; there's a not-so-secret theme to them. Internet cookies if you figure out what it is.)

it's not that we're bitter (it's just that our eyes are open): the lines you fed us kept us happyCollapse )

So after talking recently with a friend of my mother's, she ended up lending me her comic collection to read. It's a ton of stuff from the late 70s and early 80s, and as a thank you for letting me read them I decided to bag and board and sort all of them out. This is an ongoing project that will take me approximately half of forever to finish, but I'm up for the challenge.

In sorting through the comics, I found a ton of duplicates. I have no idea how you can accidentally accumulate so many duplicates, that's how many there are. So I asked her if she wanted me to file them in or just pull them out so she could sell them... and she told me that I could keep any duplicates that I found.

Cue excited squealing and sounds only dogs can hear.

Anyway, this is what I ended up with (minus a few issues that are being mailed out to people who will enjoy them more than I will):

DC:
Action Comics 498, 516, 533, 539
Amethyst, Princess of Gemworld 8
Batman 340, 358, 362, 363
Brave and the Bold 193, 196, 197
Camelot 3000 2
DC Presents 16, 18-20, 38, 54-56, 64
DC Sampler 1
Detective Comics 512, 520, 524, 532
Flash 301, 302, 313, 318, 320, 324
Fury of Firestorm 1, 7, 9, 10
Justice League of America 194, 204, 212, 221
Legion of Super-Heroes 291, Annual 1
Night Force 14
The New Adventures of Superboy 31, 52
The New Teen Titans 26
The New Teen Titans: Drug Awareness
Power Lords 3
Superman 343, 375, 380, 382, Special 1
Tales of the New Teen Titans 4
World's Finest 281

Marvel:
Avengers 219, 223, 226-234, 238
Captain America 262, 273-285
Cloak and Dagger 3
Daredevil 188. 189. 197
Defenders 123
Doctor Strange 55, 57, 59-62
Invincible Iron Man 172
Marvel Age 5
Marvel Fanfare 7
Marvel Handbook 1-3
Marvel Team-Up 109, 117, 119, 120, 122-127, 129-131
Marvel Two-in-One 91, 96, 98-100
The New Mutants 6, 12, 15
No-Prize Book 1
Thor Annual 11
Vision and the Scarlet Witch 2
Wolverine 2, 4
X-Men Annual 6
X-Men 156, 160-162, 164-172

Eclipse:
DNAgents 1

First Comics:
Warp 4

PC:
Time Force 1

...that's 145 duplicates. That are now mine. And that's not including the dozen Iron Man issues that I gave G for helping, or the fifteen-twenty issues I'm packaging up and sending out in the next week or so.

Needless to say, I am thrilled :D Granted, there are some of those that I will never read (Time Force? DNAgents? Power Lords?), but... that is a ton of comics. And I plan on taking some of the ones I don't want to the comic store and seeing if I can arrange a trade of sorts :)

Word Count: 6,013
Rating: R/depression, PTSD, swearing
Notes: Written for longfic_bingo 2013: hallucinations. Based on an idea by tinkerlu@tumblr. Thanks for letting me play in your sandbox, tinkerlu :)
Summary: When the game ends and remakes the world, it restores everything to how it was before, erasing the memories of pretty much everyone involved. Suddenly Dave is the only one of his friends who remembers anything about the game, and he's starting to wonder if he really is as crazy as he sounds.
