“I’ll Look After You” by meadow-rue
FACT: Baby Talia is the cutest thing in the entire world. 
One reason I particularly like this picture is that, while I have climbed happily aboard the Nolanverse Talia/Bane ship, it explores their relationship as something that is not romantic. Here, we see their association as platonic, perhaps even paternal/filial. While Bane’s mask is fearsome, here it is not an object of terror, but rather a simple element of his appearance. His eyes appear sad as he looks at her, but Talia’s little smile and the way she lightly touches his mask show that she doesn’t see anything wrong with him at all; he’s still the man who always took care of her in the Pit. He’s still her beloved friend, and nothing can change that. 
Being platonic or filial doesn’t at all lessen the love between the two characters in the Nolanverse. It’s quite silly (and even demeaning) to require that all loving relationships include a romantic/sexual component. This picture does a great job at reminding us of that fact. 
Great linework here, in my opinion. It’s a lovely mix of minimalism and occasional detailed touches (like the accuracy of his mask). For some reason, my favorite thing about it is baby Talia’s ragged hair. I don’t even know why. Maybe it’s because it’s so similar to her shawl, or because the rest of the picture is so smooth, and then we have this shock of spiky, fluffy hair. No idea. But I love it. 

grrrrrrrrrrrrr
:)

Thank you, this is really wonderful and cute, and yes, I like the idea that two people can have such a deep, strong, loving relationship without there being sex involved.
This is beautiful artwork, too.

Bane’s had that in the comics for a few years now. :)

This is so babies: I Don't Know What To Say

gailsimone:

I am a writer, even at the worst of times I am rarely at a loss for words. In this case, I am afraid words fail me entirely.

I just received a note that verified a fear that had been lingering in the back of my mind since the tragic events in Aurora, Colorado.

Not that long ago, I went to the first ever Denver Comic Con, the first large scale comics convention in the city’s history, apparently. It was a massive success, completely sold out, and I fell in love with the town and the people of Denver. They could not have been kinder, more welcoming, or more genuine. They treated me like a friend, and everyone from the organizers, to the attendees, to total strangers, showered the legendary hospitality of their city down upon myself and my husband. Immediately after leaving, we couldn’t wait to start planning for a return visit at a future date.

It was also a convention with a huge number of cosplayers, and two of my absolute favorites were two characters well known to me, Knockout and Scandal Savage, played by two delightful, funny, fierce young girls, one of the highlights of a show full of highlights.My husband and I insisted on photos with them and they were kind enough to agree.

I was also interviewed for a video interview by a very sweet and considerate young man named A.J. Focht. He was as gracious as can be even though I had to reschedule the interview several times as my table was swamped.

Since then, I had had a terrible fear that someone I met at DCC would have been in that theater. ANY loss of life or threat of danger is a tragedy, but knowing it was someone that I met and really liked was just too scary to contemplate, somehow.

I just received a note from A.J. that confirmed my fears. A.J. and a group of people from the convention were in that theater, including Caitlin, the lovely woman playing Scandal Savage.

They both survived, thank god. But one of their group, Alex Teves, did not survive. He died a hero, trying to protect his girlfriend. Another of their group was hospitalized.

I am broken-hearted again. As relieved as I am to hear that these two people I barely know, but who left an indelible impression in that brief time, are alive, my heart goes out to them for what they lived through, and for the friend they have lost, and for the other friend who has suffered.

Because Caitlin was one of the first to tweet a message after, that she was okay, to let her family know she had survived, she apparently became hounded extensively by the press, and was not allowed to mourn in peace.

A.J. has written about this at the Suicide Girls website…please read: http://suicidegirlsblog.com/blog/back-row-perspective-part-1-an-aurora-theater-survivors-message-to-the-media/

My heart and my thoughts go out to the victims of that awful night, to the survivors, who are also victimized, and to their families. We all feel so empty and helpless, but we can insist that the media treat these people with respect and kindness. They do not need to be traumatized again.

Finally, I’m going to say something that has been in my mind since the first reports started coming in. I don’t want this to appear frivolous, I hope I say this correctly.

We have been seeing stories of impossible heroism that occurred that night in that theater. Jarrell Brooks, just nineteen years old, had an exit out of the theater, and went back in to help a young mother and her two daughters get out, getting wounded in the process.

Three men gave their lives using their own bodies to shield their girlfriends; Jon Blunk, Matt McQuinn, and the member of my friends’ party, Alex Teves. All three threw their girlfriends to the ground and put their bodies in the path of the bullets. Not one of these men was yet out of his twenties.

Stephanie Davies, when her friend was shot in the neck, dropped to the floor and held pressure on the wound while the gunman was still firing, instead of making for the exit, quite likely saving her friends’ life.

Mike White, Sr., after his son, and his son’s girlfriend were shot, removed his shirt to apply pressure to her wound to save her life, and then as the gunman approached, put his body on top of hers to take the bullets if necessary.

There’s more, but this is what I keep thinking about.

I write stories about morals all day…stories about fictional heroes and fictional villains. And I want to believe they have influenced my life, that they have taught me to stand up when called upon, to try to do the right thing even when it is a sacrifice.

Few are called upon like the heroes of Aurora that night. They remind me what heroism really means. They give me hope. In the middle of the despair and shock, these people saw what needed doing and did it, regardless of the cost to themselves.

A lot has been made of the idea that the gunman was influenced by a fictional villain.

But I think it’s very telling to note that all those heroes, all those amazing, remarkable, beautiful people, came not just to see the latest Batman movie…they went to the first possible showing, a midnight show. They wanted to see Batman. I have seen the power that character has, I have felt it myself. He doesn’t kill, he doesn’t use guns.

He’s a good guy. A hero. A protector.

I don’t think it’s a coincidence that THOSE remarkable people were there to see a movie about a hero.

Bless every one of them.

It’s all about the kick. #TDKR

You know what this is? If the Robins and the Batgirls are too young to fit in with the tone of Nolan’s universe, at least one of the other adult members could get in on the party. This is the first post-Shumacher, live action cinema depiction of the Bat-Family. Warms the cockles of my heart.

It's Not A Car: Batman Identifies Things by Process of Elimination

"It’s not a car," Batman deadpanned in this morning’s The Dark Knight Rises trailer, and then sped off above the streets of Gotham City in his hovercraft. That got us to wondering what other things Batman might describe in a similar way.

Hey everyone!

I’ve got another t-shirt design in the running at the Design By Humans Dark Knight Rises t-shirt contest, a Catwoman illustration this time.  Please vote if you’ve got a sec!

Thanks again to all of you!

Just gorgeous.

Oh, Leo… You can be Tommy Elliot/Hush if they ever make another movie which they won’t.
