Ordered a ton of dvds from the animated DCU series because of awesome holiday sales. I'm most pleased with myself. While I do love Marvel more in terms of comic books and live action movies I can't really get into their animated series. Except 1990's X-Men that is. But I love all the DC animated shows. Batman: TAS, Superman: TAS, Justice League, Justice League Unlimited, Batman: Brave & Bold, Teen Titans, etc. Really great stuff, imho.

Been trying to read Wonder Woman femslash. Katie is right to whinge. There is a severe lack of it and it baffles, honestly, because who is more femslashy than Wondey?

In my reading I found a really great series on AO3 that flips the trinity (Supes, Bats, Wondey) around. In the fic, Diana is raised by the Kents and she basically takes over Superman's role in Metropolis complete with Lois OTP romance. It's pretty fabulous and makes me want to write a fic using the concept.

Not with Diana being raised by the Kents, but instead her coming to Metropolis instead of Superman and her ostensibly being the hero of that city while Clark maybe settles in maybe Star City or Gateway City and is a more international hero (I don't really care about that though). Basically the fic would be setting up Lois as an out lesbian and Wondey as her superhero love at first sight.

It's a thought. I think I'll hold off writing anything until I watch all the Justice League and Superman dvds I ordered. I do love Lois and Diana so if I write anything I want their voices right. Of course, I can also go through Katie's extensive comic collection for that too. She's pretty into the idea of me writing this even as a one shot.

This post was exactly what I needed to read. I've been trying to get back into DC/Marvel stuff recently, so I found this to be fantastic. :D I'll be sure to keep checking in to see if you post more comics fandom stuff.

If you want to watch the animated series, they have a ton of clips up on YouTube so you can get a feel for them and the dvds are still super cheap online. You can even buy individual episodes for cheap streaming on Amazon.

I want to watch my Superman: TAS and Justice League dvds before I write anything. I've read a few comics but I really have this strange attachment to the various DCU animated series and I'll probably base more personality/plot ideas off the series depictions. Certainly, I love Dana Delaney's Lois. She's fab.
