Plot bunnies of a DC sort

So since I can't find my pictures of the Chinese wedding I went to this weekend, I figured I'd do a post about Batman instead.  Because why not?  Now with edit.

Basically, I recently watched Young Justice, and was mostly disappointed.  It got better in the second season, but that did not make up near enough for the first season being pretty terrible.  Considering everyone said I would love it and that it was amazing, I was not very 'whelmed'.  Which is another thing.  Every time Robin said that, I kept thinking of 10 Things I Hate About You.  -_-;;;

Young Justice and it's disappointment aside, I decided I needed good Batman cartoons.  And it did remind me how fond I was of the Tim Drake Robin.  So I downloaded the old 90's cartoon and have been re-watching it again, because the old 90's cartoon is still the best Batman ever.  Seriously, for a show where no one ever died, they managed to make the Joker pretty seriously creepy.  And the plots and animation were simply stunning.  It did give me some plot bunnies I don't want to write but want to read though.

One of my biggest issues with Young Justice was that I didn't care about any of the relationships.  The only one I cared about was when Bruce took Dick out to play basketball after Dick thought Bruce was ignoring him, which I immediately melted into a puddle of goo and wanted more.  So while I steadfastly avoid the tag 'superfamily' on AO3, 'bat family' is apparently a completely different story.

I've decided that I also want fic of Gordon and Batman.  Not shipping them, because no.  But Gordon is a bit like Batman's Brigadier.  He always believes in Batman (and don't tell me that faith's been completely shattered in the comics because I don't want to know), and he's always helping.  Maybe with less animosity than the Doctor and the Brig had, but still, it's a fun relationship.  Also, I want fic of Bruce and Alfred, especially sick fic where one is sick and the other has to take care of them.  Because cartoon Alfred is a precious, precious thing and I just want to snuggle both of them.

Other things I've really wanted in fic:  For some reason, when Batman came up against a deadbolt and just melted through it, I wanted the Doctor there.  He'd try the sonic screwdriver, mumble about how it doesn't work on wood and deadbolts, and Batman just being unimpressed by this crazy alien and getting in while the Doctor's still complaining.  Even Robin has one.  I just want the Doctor's reaction to this.

Also, why haven't more people crossed over villains?  Seriously, I think all the Avengers need to be dosed with Scarecrow's fear toxin.  Scarecrow was always my favorite villain, which probably says something about my sadism towards characters...  Mad Hatter is another one I could see crossing over.  I almost want to make Steve fall under that perfect dream world that he put Batman in because I'm sadistic like that.  Also, I love what that says about the villain too.  I know it was probably because it was the cartoon and therefore omg, no one can die or else we'll scar the childrens!  But the fact that the Mad Hatter chose to put Batman in a perfect dream world rather than trying to kill him for ruining his life?  It makes an interesting choice for a villain to take.  Make your enemies' life so perfect that they won't bother you any more.

Really, the villains of Batman just need more love in general.  Part of the reason Batman is so awesome is that his villains were pretty spectacular.  Therefore, I think there should be more bleeding over of DC villains into other verses.  Just because.

Edit: Also, I feel I should mention I want all the Batman and Robin(s) fic of them being a big bat family.  I can't, however, ship any of the Robins together or with Bruce.  That just feels wrong.  I do ship Catwoman with Bruce in the cartoon though.  Not in Nolan verse, because bleh, but the cartoon is awesome.  I love those two.  And I love when Batman opens the door by cutting the glass when picking the lock would have been so much easier. It's all like, trying to impress someone there, Bruce?
