“Running with Jay or Barry wouldn’t give me what I need right now.”

So koromons, I totally meant to do your prompt of Jenni razzing Bart about joining the blue speedster brigade, but it got away from me once I had Bart and Jenni on a page together.

"It’s time I taught you the finer secrets of the Speed Force," one corner of Max’s mouth lifted in a familiar smile.

"Says the man on the couch," Bart replied, trying not to laugh at the echo of years coming full circle on his relationship with his mentor. For the first time since then, he might finally be ready to fully listen. To learn the things only Max knew.

Thank you for the prompt babemagi!

#i wonder how many folk remember Max meditatiing and how much Bart used to think it was a waste of time, #Wally thought it was a waste, #and I imagine in the future it would be hard for Bart to get a handle on, #but he’d appreciate it and want to learn it, #and eventually grow into being Mercury as Irey became The Flash and Jai became a Quick

I cannot express how much it amuses me Max had to get onto Wally and Johnny for thinking too hard and trying to apply too much science to their speed, while he had school Bart on focus. A matured Bart is destined to take after Max’s foot steps. Born into the power as he was, once Bart learned focus — the ability to flow with the power and treat the Speed Force as a part of him rather than over-thinking it or trying to control it is more intrinsic to Bart’s nature. He’s a Mercury.

It’s different when you know them…

Everyone else always thought of the tall pointed hats with wide brims when they thought of witches and wizards. Of tall imposing men and hunched old women with skin conditions. Not him.

Rainbow Brite: 20 Years Later * **
Lala Orange and Canary Yellow

Lala Orange is the cleverest of the Color Kids. Not necessarily the most book smart (that went to Violet) but Lala is the planner and strategist sort. Within the Color Kids, her combat skills are only matched by Red Butler. When Murky revealed the existence of Rainbow Brite to the people of Earth, Lala was the one who made the plans to deal with and political overtures to now unnerved religious and political leaders to establish an understanding and rules of contact.

Lala Orange and Red Butler are actually quite in love and have chosen to physically age the closest to Wisp (early-to-mid-twenties-ish). Although Lala never realized Red was less egotistical and more sincere before a big incident with Murky where Red was severely injured to protect Rainbow and the Color Kids. Up to that point they had been friendlily vying for the position of Wisp’s “second”. After the incident was resolved, Lala went to yell at Red only for it to turn into a long conversation about what both of them were really thinking and really wanted out of the long, stretched-out future that laid before them. They generally both act as Wisp’s right hand when things need doing and make an excellent team.

Canary Yellow is a tinkerer. Always experimenting with some new idea, often trying to combine human tech with the power of star sprinkles. More than one of her innovations have blown up in her face (she has the burn scars to prove it), but they’ve also been pivotal in fighting Murky over the years. She chose to age up to be something equivalent to a teenager, but that was mostly just so that she could reach things more easily when working on something than for any interest in being physically older. Her growth showed her to be tall and lanky.

Blame fyeahlilbit3point0. Totally LilBit’s fault.

You’re Heimdall? Do you have some time? There’s some theories I’d love to discuss with you!

Please excuse the thrown-together pic. I just wanted to get this idea sketched up quickly.

Dick Grayson (Nightwing) as a merman.
Hopefully that’s good enough. I’m far too lazy to create an actual background.

One word: MerDick. :D

SNRK. I’d forgotten about this piece.
Bio-luminescent stripes — for attracting mates or for attracting prey?
#do I earn fanfic based on that last comment, #because that’s be hilarious and awesome

I’m having one of those alternating between evil-laugh and oh-god-oh-god-what-have-I-done moments.
Am I allowed to blame Wundy and Pinkie-Pi for putting forth the idea?

…huh

Oh my god WHAT
WHAT
DEM PIGTAILS. ALSO IS THAT BULMA IN THE BACK AS TUXEDO MASK OR AM I GOING CRAZY

Ummm… It wasn’t my idea? Yup. Going with that. I’m innocent. …A little.
