Favorite Anime/TV Shows:Teen Titans (BEST SHOW EVER) X-Men: Evolution Justice League and Justice League Unlimited Batman: The Animated Series and The New Batman Adventures (NOT The Batman...that show just kinda sucks...) Batman: The Brave and the Bold Batman Beyond Static Shock The Tick DC Animated Universe and super hero shows in general Death Note Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion (R2 included) Fullmetal Alchemist and Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni (and all the sequels; I'm still watching/reading Umineko No Naku Koro Ni, but I like it so far...the manga's better though...okay, Higurashi Kira was...pretty weak -_-') Axis Powers Hetalia and Hetalia: World Series (my sister introduced me to that show, and now I really like it) Samurai 7 (actually, it's still a little bit early to put this one on here, since I only recently started watching it...but my sister introduced me to this one too, so it's sure to be good) Dragon Ball Z Dragon Ball Z Abridged (Oh, God, that show is hilarious! Long live Ghost Nappa and the Super Kami Guru!!!) Dragon Ball Kai Rurouni Kenshin Hellsing Ultimate (finally! A Hellsing series that actually rocks and doesn't stray from the manga!) Invader Zim (Funniest show ever) Spongebob Squarepants (the old episodes that didn't suck) South Park (Insane humor with invaluable morals at the end of each episode) The Office Star Wars: Clone Wars (The mini-series created by Gennedy Tartokovsky...and the occasional good or even great episode from the new series) The Three Stooges The Little Rascals The Muppet Show Bobobo-bo-bo-bobo (Yes, I think that show is funny! So sue me! LONG LIVE THE KING OF NOSE-HAIRS!!) The Colbert Report Gurren Lagann (This is a good anime...a REALLY good anime) My Little Pony: Friendship is magic (well, here's something I never thought I'd like that turned out to be unbelievably good 0_o) Avatar: The Last Airbender (a quality piece of Western animation for sure) The Legend of Korra (O_O ...DANG, this is a good show...okay, everything from the point you-know-who appeared in front of Korra and afterwards in the season one finale felt cheap and just generally undid everything the show built up by making all the main characters seem consequence proof--except poor Asami, who took way more crap than she deserved and got nothing in return all with an unusually mature, tolerant attitude--and the rushed romance just has way too many problems with its execution, but aside from the very ending--which at least had some incredible music to ease the pain--this show was borderline perfect and really raised the bar for "kids' shows"...and the double murder/suicide scene was just beautiful Q_Q ...Season 2's...umm...well, it's got plenty of baffling problems, but it still has its redeeming factors and does get better as it goes on.) Adventure Time Gravity Falls Teen Titans Go! (Yes, I honestly love the 2013 "reboot." Deal with it. But like everyone else, I was initially skeptical and outraged at all the changes being made that we thought would ruin our childhoods, but you know what?--that's the stupidest reaction to this show anyone can have; the 2003 Teen Titans will always be there and can never be ruined or replaced, not with the internet and the incredible fan-base that's kept it healthy and alive all these years. As for the idea that the 2013 show is "ruining" the old one, look at it this way: the 2013 Teen Titans Go! is not canon. It is not real. It is an entity completely separate from the amazing show we grew up with and cannot harm it in any way (except in your minds if you allow it). What we are watching is either an alternate dimension or something Larry has concocted in his free time to entertain himself while the real Titans exist freely elsewhere and continue to live on in that original world we know and love. That being said, it is just stupid to criticize TTGo! for taking a new direction and being nothing like the original when being like the original was clearly never its intention--would you criticize an elf for wanting to be a dentist instead of being a toymaker like his forefathers before him? Would you criticize a child for wanting to do something different with its life than what its parents did? Would you criticize a superhero movie or show for being tonally different from its previous incarnations?--(oh wait...yes, a lot of butt-hurt fans would.) The point here is that it's foolish to expect and demand that everything stay exactly the same. Things Change and we can either kick and scream on the floor like babies clearly too young to be on the internet, or we can give the change a fair chance and determine its quality based on the appropriate standards, rather than our own biases. That being said, Teen Titans Go! is right up my alley. It's all the stupid and mindlessly delightful humor--with just the right amount of irreverence--I could ask for and to see my childhood icons at the center of all this wonderful madness is like a dream come true. Still, not everyone shares my sense of humor and it's totally acceptable to dislike the show in its own right. Just don't claim it's the worst thing ever because it isn't the beloved 2003 show--that's the kind of logical fallacy a five year-old would make. And besides, whether you like it or not, the 2013 "reboot" is bringing revival back to the franchise's 10 year-old fan-base and a new passion that we fans might not've had otherwise. Even if you can't see it, TTGo! is sharpening the fandom's passion and resolve like never before. ...Okay, to be fair, them nerfing Speedy's character was pretty stupid...and the immature and downright insulting portrayal of Terra was just retarded and came off as yet another overly-cliched Terra-bashing fanfic written by an angry 12 year-old.)
(Though, I will admit the drastic contrast between this and the 2003 show that ultimately makes it inferior to the original. With the 2003 Teen Titans, it gave us everything: laughter, sorrow, drama, angst, silliness, moments of closeness, betrayal, redemption, hard life lessons ("Things Change" being by far the most valuable) and for all that, that show will always have a special place in our hearts for hitting us so deeply--for some, myself included, more deeply than any show ever has. If we were to compare the 2003 Titans to a relationship, it would be that perfect, passionate, wholesome bond that stays with us through the good times and the bad and grows ever stronger as the journey goes on. When that relationship finally dies, we mourn for the amazing thing that we lost because of how deeply connected we felt with it. In that same light, TTGo! is more like a wacky hooker who, while a lot of fun, has no interest whatsoever in connecting with us on an emotional level the same way the 2003 Titans did and maybe we don't want to have that kind of relationship with TTGo! either. It only wants to have fun with no strings attached, but because of that, the ties we share with it are only shallow at best and while we may enjoy this shallow fun, will we really mourn when it's gone? There's the difference between a deep, passionate relationship and something shallow with only surface-level benefits and it's for those reasons that I'll always consider the 2003 show vastly superior to this new one while still enjoying TTGo! for what it is.) Beware the Batman BBC's Sherlock Transformers Prime (This is by far the best Transformers anything that I've ever seen in my whole life. This show is just borderline perfect.)
Favorite Movies:CLASSIC DISNEY ROCKS!!! Marvel/DC Superhero movies in general The Dark Knight The Dark Knight Returns (in my opinion, much better than The Dark Knight Rises) I Am Legend Spider-Man 2 Justice League: The New Frontier Superman Doomsday The Batman VS Dracula Batman: Gotham Knight Teen Titans: Trouble In Tokyo The Passion of the Christ Saving Private Ryan The Patriot Brave Heart Star Wars Space Balls Blazing Saddles Robin Hood: Men In Tights The Nightmare Before Christmas The Mark of Zorro Napoleon Dynamite Street Fighter (The corny live-action movie) The Prince of Egypt Abbot & Castello Meet Frankenstein The Incredibles The Lion King Tarzan Muppet Treasure Island George of the Jungle Lord of the Rings The Chronicles of Narnia The Rocker V For Vendetta Up (so many feels Q_Q) The Haunting (original version) Disney's The Hunchback of Notre Dame The Secret of NIMH (WHERE WAS THIS MASTERPIECE DURING MY CHILDHOOD!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!) Blade Runner Batman: Mash of the Phantasm Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker
Favorite Books:The Bible Dracula!! (ach mein Gott, that book is AWESOME!! ...there is a lot of boring stuff to get through, though :/) The Outsiders The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde Lord of the Flies To Kill a Mockingbird Of Mice And Men Green Eggs and Ham Are You My Mother? Calvin and Hobbes Lord of the Rings (okay, so I'm only half-way through the first book, but I already like it! Plus, I really liked The Hobbit when I was younger) Frankenstein (I read an abridged version when I was in elementary school and started the unabridged version in 12th grade...I'm only half-way through, but it's still the greatest book I have ever read) The Farseer Trilogy (Yet another one that's too early to put on here. I'm only half-way through the first book. ...I really need to finish this stuff on my lists!) Star Wars: The New Jedi Order Series (I've only read the first two books, but they are AWESOME) Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH (the book that inspired The Secret of NIMH--definitely worth checking out if you want to see what the movie left out or changed)
Favorite Comics/Graphic Novels/Mangas:Watchmen (first graphic novel I ever read...RORSCHACH AND ALAN MOORE RULE!!) Batman: The Killing Joke (alright, it's official...Alan Moore kicks serious arse--as if we didn't already know that. I need to read more of his stories...) Teen Titans (though I am a bit behind) Teen Titans Go! (not to be confused with the 2013 show. This is the comic supplement to the 2003 show and it ran from 2004 to 2008, outliving the show it was based on by two years. If you're a diehard fan of the original show, I encourage you to read these comics for more canonical Titans lore.) Ultimate Spider-Man (actually, I haven't read it since, like, 6th grade or something, but I liked it alot when I was younger and it introduced me to comics) Hellsing (normally, I just read manga online, but this one was so good I had to get the actual physical thing even though I already read it!) Drifters (the newest manga series by Kohta Hirano, the creator of Hellsing. This manga, although still far from completion, is a masterpiece--non-stop action and great humor throughout!) Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni Umineko No Naku Koro Ni One Piece I really want to read more Alan Moore stories like V for Vendetta and League of Extraordinary Gentlemen ('cuz let's face it...the dude ROCKS) and Gerard Way's Umbrella Academy one of these days, but it looks like it'll be a while before I read any new comics, since I'm still really far behind in Teen Titans. Johnny the Homicidal Maniac (Note to self: read the Squee spinoff) The Dark Knight Returns Batman: Year One Batman: Under the Red Hood
Favorite Music:I LIKE ROCK BECAUSE IT IS GOOD... Hollywood Undead Disturbed (yeah, I like Disturbed now, so sue me) Veggie Tales (okay, so they're not EXACTLY Rock...) Green Day Nickelback Relient K (the first band I ever listened to) Skillet Underoath Three Days Grace Linkin Park My Chemical Romance (they're not emo, they're just cool. In fact, they're strictly ANTI-emo.) Rise Against Demon Hunter Simple Plan Good Charlotte Weird Al Yankovic (even though he's not rock) The Vitamin String Quartet (technically, they're classical, but they perform rock songs in classical form, which is surprisingly good) The Trans-Siberian Orchestra!!!
I also like classical and instrumental music, particularly pianos, violins, and various wind instruments (no, not as in farts). Epic Music is epic! I'm also a big fan of Immediate Music and Two Steps From Hell, as well as the various talented Brony musicians out there.
If anyone knows any other awesome punk/alternative/metal/screamo/epic/instrumental/orchestral/symphonic/electronic/weird bands worth listening to, PLEASE LET ME KNOW BOUT THEM!! I LIKE MUSIC AND WANT TO HEAR MORE OF IT!!
Things I do (but not necessarily enjoy):Write stories (I enjoy this) Draw (I enjoy this too) Read stuff (I guess it depends on what I'm reading) Kick Walls (it's a long story--TRUST ME...) Hammer nails into blocks of wood and then spraypaint it (I know, I have issues) Listen to music (I also enjoy this) Plot ways to eliminate kids that make me unhappy (the plans never work though.) Think (I'm actually becoming good at it!) Make forts Pin my dad's socks to a wall with nails and a hammer and then stuff it with potatoes Smash things with a hammer while listening to unfitting music Hang giant sheets or other stuff in the middle of the hallway just for other people's inconvenience Torture some of my little brother's stuffed toys/animals and hang them upside-down by their feet for a good-ol-fashioned "Mussolini Treatment" (wow, I do weird stuff when I'm bored O_o xD)
Things I DON'T do:Plot world domination (trust me...)
If anyone's wondering what happened to the favorite quotes list (which I highly doubt), I removed it. Why? Because it was a useless waste of space (17 whole pages of worthless quotes). One day, I may put it back (I have them saved), but probably not.
To anyone who's a Death Note fan, check out some of my sister's, goirkens' (pronounced "Go Irkens"), stories. They're pretty funny. Here's the link to her page http://www.fanfiction.net/u/1875369/goirkens
Let's get something straight here: TEEN TITANS IS THE BEST SHOW EVER. It's that simple. There is no television show greater; not Death Note, not Hellsing Ultimate, not Invader Zim, not even the once mighty Spongebob Squarepants can withstand it's awesomness.
Ravager (Rose Wilson)
Dr. Light (DUDE!! HAVE YOU EVER SEEN HIM WHEN HE'S CRAZY AND ACTUALLY A THREAT?! HE FRIKKING RULES!! And he's funny as a wimp too...)
Favorite Ships (or at least I think that's the right word):
Teen Slade/Raven (from Green Gallant's X High School)
Raven/Goth Kid (lol, why not?)--UPDATE 10/18/12: Have you seen the DC Nation short "Language Lesson/Raven's Date?" ...I FREAKING CAAAAALLED IT!!!
Cyborg/T-Car (XD! Nah, I'm just kidding. But seriously, Cyborg's a cool person; he could pretty much hook-up with anybody he wants, 'cuz he's Cyborg like that. Lol. I don't really have much of a preference of who he's with, but he seems like he'd be happy with Bumblebee...then again, I heard of another character who appears in the comics named "Sarah Simms" whom he suppossedly likes...)
Favorite weapon from the show:
Slade's FIERY DOUBLE-BLADED AXE from The End trilogy!! Sorry to disagree, Green Gallant, but Slade's axe pwns Robin's sword any day :P
Here's some information on Terra from the animated series. Look at the second line at the top where it says "alignment" http://www.titansgo.net/characters.php?id=35
Conspiracy Theories xP
How does Terra come back to life, and was she really dead?
Everyone remember Trigon? Goodie. Well, do you remember that when he conquered the Earth, he turned every living thing into stone? Great. Okay, now do you remember that when Raven destroyed him, every living being that was once stone came back to life? Well, there ya go. I believe that that's how Terra came back to life. Now onto the next part...was she truly dead, or just turned to stone, or both? Well, let me put it to you this way: TWO LONG YEARS WITHOUT FOOD, WATER, OR EVEN SWEET OXYGEN. No one could've lived through that...which supports other theories I have x). (More stupid theories on the way) Once she died, she went to Heaven, but requested to keep watch over her friends, an angel if you will. This would explain how the Titans have won some un-win-able battles in her absence. Everyone remember when Brother Blood turned himself half-robot, brainwashed the Titans, and de-limbed Cyborg? There's no chance in a million years Cyborg could've temporarily gotten super energy powers and defeat Blood JUST LIKE THAT...that is, not without a little spiritual help. Angel-Terra must've lent him a helping hand in that scenario.
And remember when Trigon took over the Earth and defeated the Titans and Slade? Again, there's no frikking chance that Raven, in her powerless child state, could suddenly summon up an extra resevoir of strength she never had and fix everything in one super-fancy attack...without some help that is X). Again, Angel-Terra to the rescue! And this would mean that she (whether it be intentionally or unwittingly) caused her own ressurection. I love my crazy theories, but they make me look stupid, don't they?
Will Terra return to join the team?
According to the comics, YES...and then she dies (T_T). But here's why I think she'd have to come back: her whole life, she's been running from her past, and this new civillian life is just another form of that. I believe it was Gerard Way who said "You may be through with the past, but the past ain't through with you". Even though she more than deserves a happy life away from danger, she'll never be able to stay away from the past forever. Some ghost from her tragic past will return to haunt her and force her out in the open whether she likes it or not. And, in time, this could lead to her return.
Who is Red-X?
Lol, I dunno! In the show, his whole existance was just to personify a mistake Robin made. As for his secret identity, it doesn't really matter, but I doubt it's Jason Todd, as some fans believe. This Robin is Dick Grayson (c'mon, it's just SO OBVIOUS!); Jason's not even around yet, so how could he possibly be Red-X? It just doesn't make sense. So I just made up my own secret identity for him :P. I've even got some bits and peices for an origins story which I might make in the future, but for now I'm gonna keep his totally made-up past a secret :P
Who triggered the dust on Slade's mask? And was that really Slade, or just a figment of Robin's imagination?
My guess, TRIGOOOOOOOOON!! Choosing to either foreshadow his coming by killing Robin, or just toy with the Titans for the heck of it, he and Slade (remember, Slade was undead and working for Trigon at the time) plotted to trigger the dust on the mask and screw around with Robin's mind for a bit. And since Trigon would be behind this, there's a chance that "Slade" was the actual Slade, but in a weakened, parasidic form depending entirely on Robin's obsessed mindset because he still didn't enough of his strength back to regain his physical body.
Whatever happened to Slade?
Why didn't he return for Season 5? Where did he go after season 4? Well, I'm not about to say that I have the answers, and I'm sure my little fan-theory is completely wrong, but here it is. After Terra came back to life, she'd have one heckuva time readjusting to life. Two years have gone by, she still doesn't have a home, and that suit is still permanently fused to her. I'm guessing she'd need some help to get her life back in order--and Slade would be the one to help her. He's the only one who understands all her pains and knows how to help her. So, in an attempt to make up for the cruel things he did to her, he removed the suit and set her up with her new low-profile life as an ordinary person. In an extreme case, he's probably serving as her guardian, or adoptive father. He might've even given up his life as Slade to be normal too and "atone for his sins". ...Wow, this is a stupid theory. Ugh. Feel free to disagree--you're most likely right. To tell you the truth, this is more of a fan fiction concept than a credible theory -_-
Is "everything pointless" (according to Goth Kid)?
Was there more to Terra not being able to control her powers than the show let on?
My guess, oh yeah. Remember when she and Slade first met and he told her he knew about how she "tried to do good, but only did harm" and caused "earthquakes, mudslides, etc"? Dude, people DIE in disasters like that. With her uncontrolled awesome powers she's most likely accidentally killed people in the hundreds, if not thousands. Imagine how traumatizing that would be to a 15-year old girl. And this has been happening to her her whole life. Not to mention, the government would see her as a huge threat and probably try to "silence" her, unaware that she's just a scared girl, and not a terrorist. This would explain why she was always on the run and made such a big deal out of her secret that she couldn't controll her powers. She was afraid that, if Beast Boy told the others she couldn't controll them, it would only be a matter of time before they learned of the things she's done and attempt to turn her in, where she would be given the death sentence without a fair trial, despite that she's only a minor. I bet there's a ton the show didn't mention on this subject.
What was that creature that appeared in "Things Change"?
Monster? Alien? Machine? Well, to be honest, I don't know and I don't care for an official answer. That's not to put down the cool, enigmatic creature, it's just that ambiguity makes for AWESOME fan fiction. If we had only one correct answer, where would all the fun and creativity go?
WHY DOES SLADE WANNA DESTROY THE TITANS!? HUH!? HUH!? HUH!?
It's actually quite simple...
In the original 1980's comics of which the animated series is based off of, Slade (or rather, Deathstroke) didn't start trying to kill the Titans until after his oldest son, Grant Wilson (AKA the first Ravager), died in battle while fighting the Titans. After that, Slade appointed himself to finish the contract his son sought to complete (killin' them punk kids) and formed a temporary alliance with the HIVE. Now as to how and why Slade's the bad guy in the show, let's take what we know from the comics and apply it to that: one would imagine that Grant died fighting the Titans on the show (most likely a little after the events of the episode "GO!" and prior to "Divide and Conquer") and that Slade tried to avenge him--similar to the comics--this would explain why he sent Cinderblock and Plasums to take them down in the first episode and why he was actually upset when his plans failed, swearing further revenge on the Titans.
In his next appearance two episodes later, it is revealed that he no longer wants to exterminate the Titans, but instead started a chain of events that would eventually lead to the infamous events of "The Apprentice". Why the sudden change of heart, you may ask? As we've established, Slade's oldest son had recently died and, like any father would, he just wanted him back...but since that was impossible, he sought out to make a new son, and he found that in Robin, which would explain why he was black-mailing him into being his apprentice. Soon after he wanted to kill the Titans, he changed his agenda into simply finding another son in an attempt to stop the pain of the one he'd lost.
To further support this theory, in the comics it's revealed that Slade's got a pretty screwed up family--his oldest son and wife are dead, his daughter hates him, and Jericho...well he gets some issues that he takes out on poor ol' Wintergreen (Slade's butler and long-time friend who appears briefly in "Divide and Conquer"). He once again displayed his desperation for a family when he stalked and eventually trained Terra, and through her he would take out his anger on the "son" who'd abandoned him and his precious Titans. Once his influence over Terra failed and she killed him, he probably realized that he'd made a fatal mistake in trying to replace his broken family with a false one, when he should've just focused on repairing his real one.
Thanks to Trigon, Slade gets another chance at life. I believe that he took up his job as Trigon's servant (which was probably more degrading than it appeared) not only to get his life back, but also so that he would be able to find and repair his real family when his partnership with Trigon was all over (which might explain why he's never seen again trying to destroy the Titans after he gets his life back--he no longer had any reason to!). So you see, Slade never really wanted to destroy the Titans just because; he wasn't just some evil bad guy out to conquer the world because there was nothing good on TV; he just wanted his family back. Slade's a MUCH deeper character than the show let on.
