There are a few nominations waiting for review that I wanted to get clarifications on. Because superheroes often have names that crossover between characters (i.e. Robin is Dick and Tim, original!Roy and clone!Roy, etc.), I'm trying to make sure it's clear which characters are meant.

If you nominated any of the following ships, please let me know which specific characters you meant:

  • Kid Flash & Robin

  • Kid Flash/Red Arrow

  • Kid Flash/Robin

  • Red Arrow & Kid Flash & Robin

  • Red Arrow/Robin

  • Red Arrow/Robin/Kid Flash

And if you nominated the following ship, this is your opportunity to change your nomination or argue for its inclusion:

  • Red Hood & Robin - Red Hood (Jason Todd) does not seem to appear in the show (references 5 year time skip only).

I've accepted all nominations except for these, so the tag set should be up to date. Remember, nominations goes through the 18th! Please nominate if you haven't, and be sure to spread the word!

All pinch hits have been accounted for, so that means the collection will be opening as scheduled. I will actually probably open it a little earlier than scheduled (11pm CST vs 12am CST) since I have work in the morning lol That means this is your chance to make any last edits or post any treats! Expect another post announcing the collection opening in about 8 hours.

[Pinch Hit #1]Pinch Hit #1 for Fearful_Captain_Biff_Elderberry

Bart Allen | Impulse/Jaime Reyes | Blue Beetle, Bruce Wayne | Batman/Roy Harper | Red Arrow, Clark Kent | Superman/Bruce Wayne | Batman, Clark Kent | Superman/Lex Luthor, Lex Luthor/Roy Harper | Arsenal, Lex Luthor/Roy Harper | Red Arrow, Lian Harper & Roy Harper | Red Arrow, Roy Harper | Arsenal/Roy Harper | Red Arrow/Wally West | Kid Flash; Fic

Bart Allen/Jaime Reyes: This is honestly my OTP for Young Justice. I just think it has a lot of potential for both some great angst and fluff. Some ideas include Bart adjusting to life in the current year (I don't remember what year season 2 is in?) after coming from the future. Or as they grow older Bart starts to have PTSD flashbacks as Jaime starts to look more and more like Blue Beetle from the future.

Bruce Wayne/Roy Harper: I have no idea why I want this, I have never wanted it specifically before but it sounded oddly appealing. My main thought on this is Bruce training Roy trying to help him become a proper sidekick. But I'm really open to anything.

Clark Kent/Bruce Wayne: Ah one of my main DC ships. I'm a pretty big fan of Superbat in general, so there's not really a way to go wrong. I'd love to see the effect their relationship has on their various sidekicks/kids (Dick, Connor and maybe Tim depending on the time). You could also write something about Bruce teaching Clark to be a good dad to Connor.

Clark Kent/Lex Luthor I like Clark/Lex ever since watching the first few seasons of Smallville. I liked it even more after I found out about Connor. I'd love to see something about how Lex got Clark's DNA. Or honestly any AU where Connor isn't a secret experiment but a child they plan or accidentally have. Custody battles over Connor, after they had a divorce. Stuff like that.

Lex Luthor/Roy Harper (both Arsonal or Red Arrow): This is like the other Roy pairing I mentioned. It just sounded rather appealing. Please feel free to go as dark as you want with this. You could do Stockholm Syndrome, or anything to do with Roy being Lex's captive/creation.

Roy and Lian: I really love a character as rough as Roy being a single dad. Anything about Roy learning to be a dad would be fantastic. You could include things like Roy trying to find a baby sitter on short notice to go stop a crime. Or dealing with any little kid issues. Or bonding moments like reading to her, or having tea parties or whatever.

Roy/Wally/Roy: I think there is so much potential for drama here. I'm not so much a fan of the idea of Wally secretly dating both Roys but more so of both Roy's wanting to date Wally and being okay with him dating both of them. I'd love to see some tension between the Roys and them trying to figure out how to deal with each other's existence. I'll also be straight up serious about this, thisis a pairing I'd really love smut for. But I'd also really love some dating fic for them to. So it's up to you.

[Pinch Hit #2]Pinch Hit #2 for Maeve_of_Winter

Garfield Logan | Beast Boy; Fic

Gar Logan is definitely my favorite DC character of all time. One recurring theme in later comics books and adaptations that continually frustrates me is when Gar is shown as incompetent, completely lame, or a total joke to make other heroes look more cool. I’d really like to have a fic where Gar’s leadership and/or strategy abilities are emphasized, as well as his kindness and generosity.

I loved his characterization in Wolfman and Perez’s New Teen Titans comic book: he runs his father’s company in his absence, he’s still traumatized from losing the Doom Patrol, he falls for Terra only to be betrayed by her, and then his pain from losing her is resurrected when Terra II comes along. I like that as friendly as he seems, he still has a dark side, as seen when he kills Madame Rouge and attempts to kill Slade Wilson. I also liked that Slade was sort of Gar’s mentor for a while.

One aspect of his character that's been shoehorned in during recent years which I really don't like is Gar's worries that he's becoming more animal than human. To me, this is a very forced, contrived conflict at best, and is less writers actually looking at Gar's past and personality than a case of writers deciding that his powers would automatically bring him these worries. I despised Geoff Johns's run of the Teen Titans comics as well as the animated series for including. It's an incredibly inorganic characterization that reeks of writers desperately searching for some sort of fresh new angst to give to a character rather than actually examining the character's background and history.

General Likes
Characters being badass, characters surprising other people with their talents/competence, iron woobie/determinator who refuses to quit no matter what kind of horrible stuff life throws at them, characters turning the table on someone who's trying to trick them, characters fighting for and earning their happy ending, hurt/comfort, angst, pushing forward through/after a trauma, characters being put through secret tests of trust and passing them, characters making enormous personal sacrifices to save others, characters being recognized for their accomplishments, characters revealing hidden pasts/traits/skills, and characters offering compassion to those who need it.

DNWs
Homophobia, biphobia, bi erasure, issue fic, misogyny, character-bashing, Raven or Damian Wayne being included as characters, Raven/Beast Boy, animalistic!Gar.

Ships
You certainly do not have include ships, but if you like, feel free. The only ships I would prefer not receive are Gar/M'gann, Gar/Raven, or Gar/Terra.

Prompts
I enjoy the idea of Gar having the full range of Martian powers, and if you think about it, with Miss Martian's blood, he should already have them. Feel free to include this aspect in any fic. Or if you want to write a fic with J'onn or another member of the Justice League coaching him onto use his abilities, go right ahead.

A fic with Gar killing Madame Rouge as he did in the comics and the rest of the team reacting to it. When Gar was sixteen years old, he killed Madame Rouge in a fit of madness, and immediately regretted his actions, denouncing the idea of murder as revenge. Yet even though most of his teammates, particularly Wally and Dick, would have had an issue with him killing someone, we never see their reactions. I'd like a fic about Gar killing a villain or common criminal either by accident or simply in self-defense, and the rest of the superhero community reacting to him. What do his teammates think? Is the Justice League more wary of him and deciding he needs to be assigned a mentor to monitor him? Maybe heroes unassociated with the League actually congratulate him on it, which upsets and confuses Gar?

Gar is a character who I feel is often unfairly stereotyped and dismissed. Possibly a five times fic where a hero or villain underestimated Gar, only to have him prove them wrong? Or if you just want to have Gar interacting with other heroes and solving crises, that would be wonderful!

I would love a fic with Gar proving his competence to people, always being the team member with a plan, or simply being the supportive figure other characters can go to with their problems. I would love something with Gar proving himself to the rest of the team.
