Bukowski Othersideverse Poetry

Found this on my commonplace book, and at once I thought of Bruce and Othersideverse!Bruce (granted, I might be a tad obsessed, but look at the first lines and tell me it doesn't fit...).

don't forget, by Charles Bukowski


there is always somebody or something
waiting for you,
something stronger, more intelligent,
more evil, more kind, more durable,
something bigger, something better,
something worse, something with
eyes like the tiger, jaws like the shark,
something crazier than crazy,
saner than sane,
there is always something or somebody
waiting for you


as you put on your shoes
or as you sleep
or as you empty a garbage can
or pet your cat
or brush your teeth
or celebrate a holiday
there is always somebody or something
waiting for you.

keep this fully in mind
so that when it happens
you will be as ready as possible.

meanwhile, a good day to
you
if you are still there.
I think that I am—
I just burnt my fingers on
this
cigarette.

Everything before the cut is spot-on.

*nods* True. I'd have posted just that, but I always feel funny if I cut down a poem.

Yep. *g*

Got pages 21-40 of the Judas Contract [thanks!], am now kind of worried about the narrator's portrayal of Tara. It's not that sixteen years old can't be evil through no fault of themselves, but even so, I'd like to know how and why...

That's it? You should have gotten the whole thing... hm. *eyes gmail* I had to send to both addresses, though, and you haven't logged into gmail that I've seen...

Yeah. Tara is pretty much 'la la la sociopath with traumatic past EVIL EVIL EVIL SOCIOPATH la la la'

Dude. Your *mercenary assassin who commits statutory rape* is given more character depth than that. I mean, yes, this is me not being sorry about Slade's depth, but I wish Tara had had more reason to be evil.

Finally got it, thanks!

I'm wibbling over the Titans... Titaness. Dick is a woobie woobie who looks woobie in a sweater. I don't have other words, sorry.

Dick going o_O at the idea that somebody had married the Terminator is adorable. And WTF was the deal with Tara's clothes when she was with Slade?!

Clearly, your stash of crack is the best.

This... is me NOT ASKING about Tara's clothes, and backing away hard from NC-17 Slade/Terra. Just... no. Very no.

My stash of crack is canon!

Don't you just love it when you randomly find something that totally reminds you of something you really love?

And you're right, the part before the cut is a really creepy fit. *loves*

I think I enjoy the poem more now that I have found something *concrete* to latch it to.

Well, as concrete as sketchy fic AUs can be *g*.

sketchy fic AUs

Something ... odd? interesting just occured to me.

Let us assume that the Othersideverse is set in an AU of the Animated Series (Batman: TAS with no "The" and definitely no "Strikes", JLU etc.).

Let us further assume that Teen Titans Animated is part of the Timmverse also.

If so, then it follows that Nuclear Option!Slade is Teen Titans!Slade. Hmm.

Toon Titans isn't part of the Timmverse, though. It doesn't fit into any continuity.

Hmm, this could be either a warning to Bruce or a warning from Bruce. Either of them. But it works nicely, any way you play it.

*nods* Heh. That's true.
