Awesome Fanfic Monday: Batman and Robin… and the Titanic

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.

I don't know who made this, but it's amazing

I Want Batman To Be My Father

batman-robin-damian-death

On episode 40 of Super Geeked Up, one of the round table questions was which superhero or super villain would we want as our parents. My answer was Batman. Now, I know what you’re thinking — but SPQ, he’ll just be neglectful or he’ll turn you into a Robin or you’ll probably end up dead or badly beaten up down the line. The truth is the reasons I chose him was not well thought-out and are pretty much right on the very shallow surface of the entire situation.

Ep. 104 Dracoons and Robins

In this episode, the Lady Geeks discuss Russian bears who get high and the Space Pirate Queen struggles with reading out loud Russian names. They also rant about how annoying people are on Facebook nowadays. Plus, some “spoiler alert” talks on Damian Wayne. Fanfic Theater: Harry Potter.

30 Days of Tim Drake

I’ve decided to challenge myself .

A somewhat lighthearted challenge so I won’t scare myself and get lazy (which happens a lot, unfortunately). Yesterday, while driving home from a particularly busy day at work, my thoughts revolved around cherry blossom trees and Tim Drake (he’s my 2D, comic book infatuation… don’t ask). Eventually, the two married each other and I started to think about Tim Drake frolicking in a little boy’s yukata among sakura trees. Eventually, I ended up sketching this out when I got home.


Tim Drake, Cherry Blossoms by ~diavana on deviantART

I’ve decided that I will do 30 fanart of young Tim Drake and post it on my deviant art as a challenge to myself! At first, it was going to be 30 days straight of one fanart a day, but I didn’t think that was realistic given my schedule. This whole thing is somewhat inspired from this article, 30 Days to Success.

I will post some of the better fanart once in awhile on this blog, too, but feel free to watch me on deviantart to see if I am successful! Maybe after this, I will choose a different theme to make another 30 art pieces with.

Wish me luck.

… by the way, Tim Drake is the third Robin in the Batman series for those who for whatever reason did not know.

ROBIN ROBIN ROBIN


I’m not quite sure how it began– but it did– my inexplainable infatuation with the Robin character from Batman. I think it’s manifestation completely amused myself and the people who know me, which is probably why I just can’t seem to stop. Keep in mind that this isn’t some obsession where I have to collect every Robin paraphernalia known to man’s existance. Not quite. I wouldn’t mind having a gazillion Robin objects to happily roll around in, but I don’t quite have the budget for it, sadly.

Instead, I’m just locked onto the fact that I want to marry the Boy Wonder.

Preferably, Tim Drake, not Dick Grayson.

But! Guy in Robin suit is Robin is Robin!

Which brings me to Untamed Cinema’s “Grayson”

Oh how I wished this could be a real film. Some of the acting is a bit on the bad side, but overall, I think the short “trailer” is rather impressive with an interesting premise. I would prefer that the other DC heroes stayed out of it because I fail to see the importance of the Justice League in a Robin film… Superman, maybe… but Wonderwoman too??

Needless to say, the whole thing just makes me drooly and I think someone who has a soul should give these people the money to make a full-length feature film.

If they did, I would pay enough to see the movie as many times to help pay for that film budget back. I SWEAR!

I know I’m a little late on this uptake since this fanfilm has been around for quite some time garnering raving reviews and even controversies; but it never hurts to mention something that has to be considered epic again!
