Welcome back, delightful Patrons! We’ve started down the slippery slope towards the end of the Teen Titans’ fic, A Baby to be Born Inside, but there’s still a whole lot of nonsense to wade through before we get to the bottom of this hill.

Not much happened last time; Raven and Beast Boy named the babies Beast Boy, Jr, Phoenix, and Americas, and … that’s pretty much it. Two whole chapters and that’s the only significant event that occurred. These chapters aren’t much better, but at least there’s a pointless dream sequence.

Sounds like fun.

Well, guys, it’s that time again. Welcome to another installment of Parallel Realities.

And this time… this time, we get a plot twist that is so incredibly stupid that it’s actually a wonder anybody still thinks this fic is good. I blame it on the blatant wish fulfillment, but this bit of wish fulfillment is so blatant that… well, you know…

Since we’ve got quite a bit to cover, let’s get going, shall we?

After getting back from my trip, things have been kinda crazy around the TacoHut, so it’s gonna be a short one today.  Sorry about that, kids.

When last we left Marcus, our resident Sith-Lord and Gary-Stu ultimate, he had melted a herd of raptors with force lightning in a pool of red goo and then vaporized the goo into the force.

Yeah, he’s supposed to be a Jedi.

Art-Tastic Tuesday – Jedi Master Velor

Hi there, boys and girls and various ‘bots roaming the Intertubes!

Taco’s comment the other day about how awesome it would be to see a velociraptor shooting Force lightning got me thinking, which is always a good sign. Turns out dinosaur/Jedi fanart is a lot more popular than I thought, since I didn’t think it existed but should know better by now, and some of it is pretty good.

This particular slice of awesome comes from blueprincelatino and seems to be just a random drawing that the artist just did for fun.

EDIT: I seem to have made the classic Librarian’s mistake and hit “Publish” instead of “Save Draft”, so you get to enjoy this early.

Hello again, dearest Patrons! I’m back with :sigh: yet another pair of chapters from my Teen Titans fic. This thing just keeps dragging on and on; it’s the literary equivalent of a root canal. These chapters are chock-full of all sorts of failure, so let’s get cracking.

Hello again, children. Well… After the travesty that was known as Gabriel Hawke, we go back to Parallel Realities. Thank heaven. I’ll take bad plotting over watching someone become an overly-glorified psychopath any day, thank you very much.

Anyway, this installment of the snarking will be another one where we tackle two chapters in the course of one installment. Why? Because one of those chapters is almost entirely plot regurgitation, and the other is almost entirely poorly-paced action.

So since we have a lot to cover, let’s get going, shall we?
