I saw two films in the last week, and enjoyed one of them a lot more than the other. MASSIVE SPOILERS for both.

Batman vs Superman Dawn of Justice )

Zootropolis )

I've got three stories up on Archive of Our Own

The Council of Bats is just a little ficlet (if it were an actual comic it would be one of those three page fillers in an annual or special) that I'd been doodling with and decided to use as a sort of trial run.

The two fake crossovers are The Coming of ... The Squadrupeds Supreme! and Crisis on Earth C Minus and Earth C Plus Plus! They can be read in either order.

I had a great idea for a fic.

Well, okay, I had a great gimmick for a fic. An homage to those classic comic book fake crossovers, where Team 1 at Publisher A fights thinly disguised pastiches of Team 2 at Publisher B, while Team 2 is also fighting a thinly disguised Team 1 in their own book. (Justice League v Heroes of Angor/Avengers v Squadron Supreme; Freedom Fighters v Crusaders/Invaders v Crusaders; New Teen Titans v RECOMbatants/DNAgents v Project Youngblood). I was particularly inspired by the Titans/Agents thing where both books actually told the same story, the only difference being which team died at the end.

And I wrote it, or them, and I went to upload them to fanfiction.net. Luckily, it made me check the rules of submission before I did. Because there on the list of Actions Not Allowed was "2. Rewriting names of characters/locations of one story in order to upload to multiple categories."

Which is precisely the underlying joke of my stories. I could just post one of them, but it wouldn't be the same. (If I was just posting one, what I'd probably do is rewrite it into an actual crossover. And rewrite it quite thouroughly, since at the moment it mostly hangs on the gimmick.) Ah, well. Somewhere else, assuming there is somewhere else that doesn't have that rule...

Um, yeah. So, in keeping with my resolution to share all my fanfic, regardless how silly, this happened.

Yes, I’ve done some more. I was really struggling with Police/Firefighters for some reason, so this time I’ve gone for Mirror Universe instead.

Feel free to throw more characters at me.

Well, some of these got a bit away from me. One of them ended up a double drabble…

(Feel free to suggest some more; this was fun.)

Not sure I'll do these every week, but I wanted to put down how much I liked these.

In which we learn why these stalwarts have been assembled, your humble author desecrates another children's classic, and there's at least one entirely unnecessary cameo.

Oh and I don't want to say too much about the cliffhanger, but I'm quite pleased with the cliffhanger.

The story continues to be here. Final two chapters (and I've just realised I'm not sure why I'm releasing it in two-chapter chunks) coming soon.

Okay, so after Discworld DC Heroes and Sherlock-ified All Consuming Fire, you might think "more ridiculous" is a tough bar to reach. But this is so ridiculous that even after I completed it, I stared at it for a while thinking "Do I actually dare publish this on a website where people can see it?"

Well, it turns out I do. Are you ready for The League of Extraordinary Gentlebeasts? Is anyone? Is being ready for it even theoretically possible?

2 chapters up, four to go. Possibly exactly as daft as you think, perhaps a bit dafter.

I saw this yesterday, it was really good.

So, on a bit of a fanfic high after uploading "The All-Consuming Fir" to Teaspoon, I opened chapter three of "Discworld's Finest" to poke about at it for a bit, as I've been doing on and off, mostly off, since 2003.

And after I'd poked at it for a bit, I thought "You know, this kind of looks like it might possibly be ... finished?" The idea took me so much by surprise that I almost panicked about it.

So, after a few days of double checking it really is finished, polishing up the epilogues I wrote ages ago, and reminding myself how Fanfiction.net actually works, "Discworld's Finest" is finally completed. And here it is.

So it just goes to show, sometimes the Things From The Depths Of The Hard Drive do actually get completed. Maybe there's even hope for that Storytime! (You know, the one I said I was going to publish once I'd got halfway but that might be "some time after Matt Smith regenerates", and that was meant to be a joke, because "The Eleventh Hour" hadn't even been broadcast yet...)

Does anyone know of any online comic shops (preferably in the UK) that separate the comics by month? My local comic shop recently closed down after six months where Diamond couldn't be bothered to send them anything, and so I've been thinking about buying my comics online. But when I go to a site and "latest issues" means "the most recently published issue, even if it was cancelled over a year ago" and back issues are just long lists of titles and numbers (and synopses, but comic synopses range from "That could be any issue in the current story" to "That conveys no information whatsoever"), I get hopelessly confused as to what I got on my October trip to Plan 9 in Aberdeen, and what's actually a new - or at least recent - issue.

Is there a simpler way? Because regular trips to Aberdeen aren't ... well, they are an option, because I've done it before, but I'd prefer not to.
