Quick post to remind myself - finally decided on my four Yuletide request fandoms, which are: Darkwing Duck (the world needs more floofy Drake/Launchpad slash. Needs it bad), Fairy Tales (I'm gonna ask for kick ass women and dramatic trope subversion and loads of queerness, yes), Runaways (Karolina/Xavin forevvvvvvvvar), and Night at the Museum Blue Beetle.

For, you know. Now. I'm not 100% sure on the last one.

oshit, Reborn!'s a nominated fandom? And the Dresden Files, and the Jurassic Park movies, and Hayate x Blade (well, yeah, I nominated that one), and Live Free or Die Hard, and Blue Beetle (hmm, might actually change to this one... yeah).

How was nothing with Ted Kord ala Blue Beetle v.2 and Booster Gold nominated? Justice League International and/or Booster Gold should be totes small enough.

Ooooh, DuckTales *was* nominated.

[ETA from the FUTURE (Dec. 22): ha, and then I changed it ten times]

Reborn!'s a nominated fandom

Reborn as in Heroes Reborn, the 90s-tastic Marvel reboot thing with the Liefeld art? Because if someone nominated that, I'll be really amused.

Dresden Files is glee, though I'm a little sad that real!Blue Beetle didn't get nominated -- JLI is one of my favorite corners of the DCU. You've got Ted, Booster, Guy Gardner, Big Barda, Bea and Tora, Max before he was retconned evil, the Martian Manhunter, and cameo appearances by Amanda Waller. All it lacks is toonverse!Question and a few more Green Lanterns to be all the awesomest people in the DCU on one team.

Sorry -- I still think of Barry Allen and Jay Garrett as the real Flashes, too ^_^. I'm just not a legacy person -- I can't call new legacy characters that replace killed off characters by their predecessor's names; it feels like I'm erasing Ted Kord/Steve Rogers/etc. out of existance and ensuring that they'll never come back when I do that, like saying "I don't believe in fairies" in Peter Pan. Stupid superstition to have, but it's strong enough that I couldn't even buy comics if they had Bucky!Cap on the cover.

anti-racism discussion -> High School Musical -> Boostle is strange, even for fandom

I got into Harry Potter fandom by doing a google search for Trigun screencaps -- it's weird how you find things, sometimes.

I think I would adore Jaime and be totally okay with it if only he was called any name in the world other than Blue Beetle -- some different name that was simply inspired by Ted, but that was Jaime's own name and not Ted's name. Like Eli Bradley being Patriot instead of calling himself Bucky II or something, or Dick Grayson being Nightwing (which I know is actually a character from Kryptonian folklore, but it also fits very nicely into the Batman/Robin naming scheme and Bat mythos with the whole wings element and the "I am vengeance, I am the night" schtick Bruce has).
