Welcome to another chapter of Awesome Fanfic Monday!
As you all know I love my crossovers and I love my parodies. Naturally when I find a fanfic that is both a crossover AND a parody, well, I am just tickled. This fanfic is a personal favorite of mine that I reread every once in a while because it is just delightful. The author combines one of the most well received movies of all time, Titanic, with one of the most infamous and criticized pieces of celluloid ever, Batman and Robin. What do these two movies make when combined? Absolute gold.
Ya’ll know I love crossovers. As someone who daydreams about all these fun fictional worlds it’s such a pleasure to see them intertwined so well. Today I present to you a crossover that was just waiting to happen. Ever wonder how everyone’s favorite hothead Elliot Stabler from Law and Order: SVU would react to meeting Batman? Well, look no further because I have it right here!
This week’s story is A Tale of Two Gothams by Alexander Dregon of Fanfiction.net. It never before occurred to me that Elliot Stabler and Batman needed to meet until I read this story. I am a huge Law and Order: SVU fan and I freaking love Stabler. He is such a hothead and uncompromising, even when that behavior becomes self destructive. And who else is uncompromising and by God will get the job done? The God Damn Batman, that’s who.
It’s not often I get to do an interview with someone who is truly open and candid about their life and their personal journey. Country music singer and songwriter Lawnie Wallace was gracious enough to take to time to talk to me about her new album, The Lost Years (available now to purchase), and to share the bittersweet journey that transpired and led to the creation of her most recent music.
In this interview Lawnie talks about her ten year hiatus, how she came back to writing music, and her love for phone apps and Macs. She even shared with us her favorite superhero! She is an absolute gem and it was a pleasure to speak with her. Check it out!
What is it like to be back in the music scene after your ten year hiatus?
For me it’s actually very surreal because it’s been such a long time since I’ve been in the music scene. I’m so overwhelmed with it all because I’m so close to the music and it’s my first time writing a full album all on my own and producing it along with the help of Ruben Huizenga, my other producer and help me bring out the music that was living in my head for so long. Coming back from the dark and back into the light again, it just makes me so grateful. If there was one word to describe how I feel it would be gratitude. I’ve had this chance again to bring my music to the forefront, so that people can hear me and hear the struggles that I have been through over the last ten years.
For the second year in a row, Her Universe put on their nerd-inspired fashion show that not only showcases the newest pieces from the Her Universe clothing line, but also gives aspiring designers a chance to show off their geek couture design to compete for a chance to design a Her Universe line for Hot Topic. Last year, Amy Beth Christenson and Andrew MacLaine won, and have recently collaborated with Her Universe designers to make the vintage-inspired Avengers line.
