Short, but still awesome. Poor Zat, meditation does sound incredibly boring. And after meditating with Raven, it totally makes sense that he's bleask. @_@
She's kind of a Debbie Downer, isn't she?
I was shocked. Zat didn't mention Eddie until the very end. Is his lovesickness wearing off? Or is the meditation helping to keep his raging hormones under control?
He's just got a lot on his mind right now, magic-wise. He's still got quite a crush, make no mistake.
Ah. Bettering himself. Are you going to address Eddie's new powerlessness soon? Zat can gripe about how Eddie has never hugged *him* but had no problem whatsoever hugging that, that, who the hell is *Kid Eternity*?!
(ohgod, sorry. My brain fell into Zatara-land of it's own accord.)
Plus, he can totally feel Eddie up without the risk of third-degree burns now! That's fun!
Hah. I kind of got Jossed? I'll address it, but I can't address it canonly.
He did get hugged by Eddie, in the hospital, but Eddie was being careful. Eddie would be signicantly less careful if he was, well, distracted.
I wrote out a scene that ended the whole dark side club thing and it turned out to end differently than I had portrayed. Like, days 56-58 got disproved by canon.
Bah, canon. Say, did you read the annual yet? The Static/Cyborg interaction cracks me up.
AND EDDIE HAS THE GREATEST PAJAMAS OF ALL TIME!
Just the pages on Scans_daily. I refuse to pay money in support of evil!Jericho. HE IS SWEET AND FLUFFYHEADED, GODDAMMIT. Also, I hate it when Cyborg's the villain.
DO THEY HAVE LITTLE PITCHFORKS ON THEM? I HOPE THEY HAVE LITTLE PITCHFORKS ON THEM.
I hate spending money on evil!Joey, too, but Jo would hang me up by my thumbnails if I tried to steal from her store, so there we have it.
AND THEY TOTALLY HAVE LITTLE PITCHFORKS AND THEY'RE *RED* PAJAMAS! SO FREAKING CUTE!
I THINK I NEED TO SEE THIS
My scanner took a diving leap off of my desk six months ago and is now dead. But lemme check comicvine.
Nope, no pictures of his pajamas, but I did find a spiffy shot of him in his really stupid looking devil suit. He's wearing that again, by the way. With the trident and everything.
Coupled with the long hair...yeah, he's lucky he's a superhero and I love him, or else I'd pretty much HAVE to beat him up for looking so goofy.
YOU WORE THAT WHEN YOU WERE TWELVE
SOMEBODY BETTER CALL EDNA MODE RIGHT FUCKING NOW
Or failing that, Stephanie Brown. She's sewn up two good costumes herself (okay one was only pretty decent) while Eddie's only nice costume came from Neron. Maybe Static can help? He's got a pretty good look going.
OH MY CROD I THOUGHT THAT TOO.
ESPECIALLY BECAUSE I SAW THE MOVIE LIKE, TWO DAYS AGO.
You think Zat could magic Eddie up a better costume? Oh, wait. Better not let him do that. He'd probably make it assless.
Which would be fun for everyone, but not exactly great to fight crime in.
No, Zach would just put him in a tuxedo. And then Eddie will be all like, "Man I can't fight crime in a tuxedo" and Zach will be like "Why not?"
"Um, because unless this is some sort of magical, flameproof tuxedo, I'm just going to end up setting it on fire and making myself naked."
"Just as planned!"
I'll have you know I stayed up until three am last night reading this. I am barely coherent. I'm in a coffee shop as we speak, sucking down the strong shit and hoping to God I do not walk in front of a bus on my way to the train station tonight.
That being said I love your Zatara. I believe I've mentioned this but I cannot stress it enough. :DD
The tiger scene had me laughing so hard my stomach hurt. I love Zat's utter outrage and fear for his bunnies. :D
Also, I love how you're detailing Zatara's studies in magic and giving the whole thing a decent base, back story and explanation. It's not just Zat saying shit backwards. It's very interesting.
I can't wait to read more.
Thanks! Yeah, most of the magic stuff comes from the DCU. I tried to keep it as close to canon as possible, except where canon went totally batshit crazy
as far as Eddie's concerned. I mean, McKeever totally jossed my entire plotline what with his depowering Eddie and all. I will not bitch about that, though. EVEN THOUGH IT WAS THE EASY WAY OUT.
Unfortunately I've got a big project coming up and I probably won't be able to update until the middle of May. Um. Here's
the table with all my Zatara fic in it.
I've got a proposision for you, my dear.
Ever heard of Gaia Online? Aside from being RIDICULOUSLY popular with anime fans, Gaia has a slightly huge DC/Marvel RP base. Among other characters, I've been playing one Eddie Bloomberg. The only active Red Devil on the site, actually. And I desperately need a Zat, because Rose won't stop hitting on me and I need her to stop. Also, having Zat around would just be multiple chances for comedic GOLD. Not to mention that I can't think of anyone better suited to play dear Zachary than you are :3
Me and you, the only GOOD Jaime player, one of the multiple Roses I've accumulated, and a Megan of some sort. The shenanigans will NEVER END.
Are ya in?
