I’m going to sleep now, but FOR THE RECORD:
I’d sort of like to try and do a bit of Batman character horror stories again. I haven’t written proper horror in a while, and there are loads of characters I haven’t hit in that capacity.
If any of you guys are interested or willing, please shoot me a name and maybe one word or something and I might try and do a short horror prompt using that.
Villains and heroes are both fair game, but I’m not as good with the Batfamily. Bruce and Alfred are fine.
When they don’t return the coin he finds himself disassembled unable to eat drink move speak trapped with possibilities he has no right to choose live or die stay or go yes or no or maybe so a useless vessel who can’t manage one step he does not sleep so much as slip from consciousness into nothing into visions his brain becomes disjointed garbage a knight wearing tin riding an ass snapped up swallowed whole Gotham the monster that can be neither slain nor tamed roasts him alive in her belly like fever it is Jim who spares his life.
8O ONE OR BOTH OF MY CATS MUST HAVE TURNED TO SERIAL KILLING WHEN I WASN’T LOOKING. I LET MYSELF BE FOOLED BY THEIR INNOCENT DEMEANORS AND LOVE OF SNUGGLES AND KISSES, BUT BENEATH THE SURFACE THEY HAVE THE HEARTS OF PREDATORS.
PROB. IT WAS THE LAST PERSON WHO REFUSED TO FEED THEM PEOPLE FOOD.
In other news, I think there’s something really vile smelling in the trashcan next to my fridge and I have no idea what it could be but I don’t want to investigate either.
It smells like overpoweringly rotten tomato soup.
I kind of wish they’d left Harvey missing then used him for the third film instead of, ya know, what they ultimately did in Rises. Would’ve been more time to delve into his character as Two-Face.
IDK though, I didn’t really feel like Harvey was second to Joker in the movie personally haha. When I first saw the film I really came away going “holy shit Harvey” and expected him to have a billion fangirls or some such.
But no. Instead it was all sympathetically homicidal clowns going “y so serious” while gazing in pure adoration on Bruce Wayne’s long lost sister or some such.
I really, really liked that Harvey’s focal point as Two-Face was more about chance than any obsession with the number two or the weird fake DID. But yeah, I don’t think there was enough to drive home why he really honed in on the coin flipping on multiple occasions. And agree that the standoff with Gordon felt forced.
I can get why he’d be mad at Gordon for not considering he had dirty cops after being warned repeatedly, and I can get him honing in on the whole nickname thing under the circumstances, and I can even get him being upset with Gordon for not reaching Rachel in time. But the specific way he tried to strike at Gordon didn’t feel organic to me.
XDDDD Haha nah I mean like this:
Bottom right hand corner gear when I look at the post normally/would go to reblog a post,
upper right hand corner after I’ve clicked the reblog button and am doing edits and such. I never use the gear on the upper right hand corner so didn’t notice it until I was looking for anything funny about the reblogging process lol. This all look usual for you?
XDDDDD PFFFFF SHOWS HOW OBSERVANT I AM. I thought it was on the bottom before for some reason, dunno why. I’m just trying to figure out why tumblr was like NO REBLOGGING OR POSTING FOR A WHILE WE’RE CHANGING A THING early this morning haha. Besides me never using the gear/not paying attention to it before, IDK what they did.
EDIT: OOP WHEN YOU GO TO REBLOG A THING THE GEAR IS AT THE BOTTOM. THAT’S WHAT THREW ME. XDDDD I legit never pay attention to the upper right haha.
Is the only thing tumblr changed adding the little gear thingie to the upper right hand corner of the reblog box?
XD Naturally. And I wish they could’ve left Harvey’s shift to coin flipping shenanigans as as a mental illness issue vs. a “love interest is deaaaaaaaaad” issue—even if the other events of the movie added to the strain a lot.
So IDK if I should’ve phrased the post differently to clarify that I don’t think the portrayal was perfect, but good lord I loved how Aaron Eckhart acted the part, and I really liked how Harvey operated within his position as DA and in relation to the public. Feel like the tragedy of the whole thing came across really well, and it was important to emphasize how good Harvey was before the disfigurement to really get that.
XD Basically, now the general public knows the character better and can understand him more, as opposed to Batman Forever haha. So in that sense I guess I’d say justice was done.
I am incredibly glad that Harvey’s character was done justice on the big screen.
