Enough is never enough, is it? People always want better than that. People always need something more eye-catching, more attention-holding, more satisfying. More secure. The gluttonous masses are always trying to find more of something to feed off of, and all it does is leave everyone feeling hollow. Feeling like something is missing.

Perhaps I should be more clear. Has there ever been a time, Community, when you've felt there's something missing from your life, even when it's otherwise entirely adequate? And, what did you use to fill that void?

On another note, I realize it's been some time since I've last posted here. Society life is far more engaging than I remembered. To the newcomers, it's a pleasure to meet you. I'm Bruce Wayne.

[ooc; In other words - socialite-status is boring as fuck and I miss Batman but I only fuck things up 8( so tell me why your life sucks worse and give me suggestions for being less of a selfish fuck.]

It's been a while, hasn't it? Kent had informed Lois Lane that this place was still functioning and operating and I just had to see for myself.

Usually, I would be more cheerful, but I have a very serious question. Where is the Batman? Gotham is quiet - too quiet.

[backdated to the last day of what if]  
...I think considering his ties in the community and the fact that he was as much of a menace here as he has been in Gotham, the members here deserve to know.

According to the news report this morning,
last night the wanted criminal known only as "The
Joker" was found dead in an abandoned warehouse
in the Narrows. An anonymous phone call was made
to the Gotham Police Department, suspected to be
made by the Batman, in regards to the location of
the body. An unnamed source within the police
department speculates that the likelihood that the
man responsible for this murder being the very same
Batman that Gotham has come to recognize as its
own personal "Boogeyman" is incredibly high, though
the investigation is ongoing. Due to the nature of
the crime and the condition of the body, the DA's
office has confirmed that they are seeking life
without possibility of parole for the perpetrator
when he is found, since capital punishment remains
illegal in New Jersey.

[anonymous, IP untraceable, video - forever]  
[The scene cuts into a dark alley in Gotham. The lighting is terrible, but it's easy to see two distinct shapes - a man in an asylum inmate uniform of bright orange and white, and a man in black rubber and kevlar. The Batman has the inmate held by his collar, holding him over the edge of a fire escape. It looks like it just finished raining.]

Tell me where he is.

"I-I don't know nothin', you gotta listen, just let me go. I got a wife, a family--"

You don't care about them, don't put your life in their hands. If you were worried about taking care of your family, you wouldn't have gotten involved with men like the Joker in the first place. Now, I'm going to ask you again- [He shakes the man and drops him slightly, making it seem like he's going to let go, but grabs his shirt collar at the last minute.] Where is he? I can't hold you up here all day.

[The man's crying now, reaching out for something - anything - to hold onto to keep him from falling but Batman is holding him at arm's length.]

"Please! Stop! I don't know where he is!" [The aggression and tension left the Batman's body visibly and he lowered a fist he'd been threatening.]

You're telling the truth. That's too bad.

"I'm sorry, B-b-batman, I'd help ya 'f I could." [Batman, who'd looked distracted, suddenly focused back on the convict he was holding up.]

I meant for you. [He drops the man off the fire escape - from this height, it looks hit or miss on whether or not the fall kills him. Batman turns and is facing the screen now. He seems to notice the camera because he growls and wraps one hand around it, crushing it in his hand so there's only snow before the video feed cuts out.]

[It starts out in Rufus and Dark's very lavish apartment, and Dark is in the kitchen cooking dinner. His hands move skillfully and most importantly, he's wearing a pink apron. Rufus comes in through the door, and the cats and Dark Nation come running to him- purring.]

You're home from work~

[Dark appears out of the kitchen and Rufus has to stop on a random box to give his wife a kiss. Dark Nation has his slippers and Dark is taking off of his coat.]

How was work ~ ?

Oh, fine. [Rufus undoes his waistcoat, no bandages are apparent. Though for a moment, he looks pensive before you can see that there's a flashback where Krad is standing on a ledge and Rufus is holding by his bang. Rufus snips it off and Krad falls to his death Dark appears next to him - still looking like a housewife.]

You're so sexy when you kill people on my behalf, I don't know why I don't appreciate that more. I think it's because I'm too concerned getting you to look like a pinup doll. Then what did you do, baby? [There's purring before Rufus starts explaining moar.]

[Then there's cutaway to Lady killing a bunch of demons in a row, before Rufus walks up behind her.]

You want to date that one.

[And he points to Leon before Lady shoots him in the head, but he survives to gives a thumbs up and Lady and Leon start making out.]

Even though you're a homo, you're always right.

[Bruce and Tony appear out of nowhere]

You're right, for a homo -he's proved me wrong enough times for me to be humbled. [Tony starts, Bruce nods too-]

Oh, and I'm totally giving you the number of my interior designer. I absolutely want to know what you do with your place.

[Grease lightning wink from Bruce, and an eyeroll from Tony before Bruce crosses his arms "You never let me express myself."]

Take the Audi, I suck at driving and I want you to have it.

[Dark claps happily as Rufus grabs the keys. It goes back into focus back in the apartment, and Rufus is sitting with his legs apart and Dark on his knees.]

What did you do today?

Oh, you know, I tore Tyki's arms off. Blowjob?

[They're sitting in Tyki's living room, and Dark is literally tearing his arms off and beating him with it.]

[ooc; I LIED. Replies are forward dated.]

A question for all you do-gooders.  

Since I gather there are plenty of heroes, superheroes, and generally nice and good people around here. Answer me this:

Would killing all criminals make the world a better place?

...put some thought into it.

I want to reassure everyone that I am not usually a drunkard and I do not drink around my children. That said, I need to extend some apologizes, especially to the Batman. I am very well aware that you need to protect Gotham more so than take care of my baby. Thank you, Harvey and Bruce - (was there one more person) - for coming over and taking care of the baby as well as me. I hope I didn't do anything that was too bad - sorry, Bruce, for falling asleep on top of you.

... I also have to apologize to House and Wilson. Lets never talk about this, shall we?

[Mission report? Minato just can't stop being leader.]  
[livejournal.com profile] goddamn_ironman mentioned today that he hadn't seen [livejournal.com profile] peektuttut (Tim Drake) in a while, so I looked into it.

I think the last time he posted was 4/25, to [livejournal.com profile] checkmymobile. But a week later he was reported missing by that person. An anonymous replier seemed to know what was going on.

Is anything being done?

[ooc: Minato just decided to get himself involved in this, idk. Chalk it up to his lack of direction in life at the moment. I talked to Ari about it, and if any rescue attempts are made they'll be unsuccessful. I just had to oblige Minato's hero instincts. :) And remember he couldn't read the locked threads, so he's working on very little information here!]
03 May 2009 @ 09:00 pm
...Has anyone heard from Tim Drake this past week?
Current Mood: worried

Attention members of [livejournal.com profile] dramadramaduck, James Rhodes and Steve Rogers in particular.

You may have come upon the information, recently, that Tony Stark is dying a slow and painful death due to his shitty technology. This is false. The more correct fact of the matter is that he is a raging asshole who doesn't understand what is appropriate to joke about when he's drunk.

My advice to you is, first off, make sure you tell Tony how glad you are that he'll be with us a few more years until the alcohol really hits his liver and, in the future, avoid humoring him when he's inebriated beyond reasonable legal, ethical, or medical limits.

That is all.

Due to popular inquiry, consider this a PSA.

My appendix ruptured, Dr. Cuddy spectacularly took care of the necessary surgery, I am now stitched and well on my way to healing. And no, I am not overexerting myself. I'm fine - extenuating circumstances notwithstanding.

You can all stop asking.

On another note, completely separate from the above: Tim, it was suggested that I speak with you.

[ ooc; voice due to lol painkillers. ]

Since it's your birthday, Bruce and I can't really send you strippers from Victrola like I promised. I'm offering you the next best thing:

Hey, Bruce. You left your handcuffs and edible body paint at my house. Come pick them up before my little sister finds them. Also, we can try out your butt beads next time.

I can't even begin to describe how not funny this is.

However this happened, whoever may have done this- please tell me how to change back. I don't think I've been this uncomfortable since I first wore a pair of stilettos, and that's really saying something.

[Here we have a video streamed to the community, sans sound, of Edward Nygma and a female Tim Drake. The angle is strange, set to the side just enough to make out both figures. There's a short exchange, but for the most part, it's inaudible, just to the point where what they're saying is indistinguishable.

Suddenly, Nygma leans in; Tim, pulling him closer by the tie he wears, presses forward into the kiss. It lasts longer than it rightfully should, and seems as if it will continue - until both are pulling away. Tim's hand reaches toward the camera - a phone - and the feed ends.]
25 March 2009 @ 10:20 pm
All right, I'm going to set aside my dignity for a moment in an attempt to fix this.

I'm, quite obviously, not in my own body. Is there anyone here who can rectify that? No, I don't know how it happened.

[Heavy, rasped breathing is heard at the start of the recording, followed by some static, then crashing and what may have been a scream in the background. Bats is on patrol while he's making this recording.] This city looks like Hell has swallowed it. There's a cancer eating it away from the inside.

[He breaks off and there's a few brief huffs of breath.] Damage control isn't working - it's time the source of the problem was taken care of. Too many people are resorting to chaos, taking it as an exit because they have nowhere else to turn. Allowing themselves to be led by a mad dog.

Someone here knows where the Joker is. Someone here is going to tell me.
