Hello once again, patrons! I’m your host, BatJamags, and I’m back with another installment of The Shadow Warriors!

Last time, we finished up the chapter really early, so that was great fun. Oh, and something probably happened in the story, too.

Chapter 15: A New Villain

I’m sure he’ll be well thought-out and interestingly characterized.

Hello once again, patrons! I’m your host, BatJamags, and I’m back with another installment of The Shadow Warriors!

Last time, we learned that the best part of the story, Sarina Gibson, was in fact not the creation of our illustrious author, and I promised that I’d read the original story to see how much of her character arc is actually original. As it turns out, the author actually put a bare minimum of effort into this. The original story, Just for Laughs, is kind of mediocre (not a bad read, but somewhat lacking in pacing and technical ability) and the whole thing takes place inside Arkham Asylum. Basically the only thing that Shadow knight1121 directly reused was the recording that revealed everything. I’m not sure whether it explains some of the bizarre lengths Sk1121 goes to in order to keep the Dork Patrol involved, or makes it that much more confusing. Regardless, Sk1121 is still relying largely on someone else’s concept to make his story interesting, so no redemption cookies for him.

Oh, and I just saw that Sarina’s author has another fic (the original was based on Arkham Asylum, while this one is just Batman, and seems to reset the continuity) which is weirdly much better than the original despite only having been written eight months later. That one actually never got as far as the revelation, and it was last updated in 2016, so it’s safe to say that Sk1121 wasn’t ripping off that one either. It’s called Laughing All the Way.

Now, let’s get back to it, shall we?

Hello once again, patrons! I’m your host, BatJamags, and I’m back with another chapter of the fic that’s making me realize that seventy chapters is too many chapters. Let’s get started, shall we?

Chapter 13: One Thing left to do

Leave poor Ben alone!

Authors Note: Okay I should have mentioned this last chapter but most of the writing at the end I got from Tonycakes story Just for Laughs.

 You… “got it” from the story? What do you mean by that?

I’ll be back soon.

Critiqued by BatJamags (GoodJamags)

Hello once again, patrons! I’m your host, BatJamags, and I’m back with more of The Shadow Warriors, the fic that’s about to have a Big Twist™. How do I know this (other than the fact that I already finished the riff and am writing this introduction as I split it in half)? Because the chapter title is “Revelations,” so unless it’s about the Bible, I’m guessing we’re in for a shocking twist.

WARNING: This chapter contains a generic, exaggerated, and vaguely sloppy (not to mention sloppily vague) depiction of parental physical abuse. Whoopee.

Hello once again, patrons! I’m your host, BatJamags, and I’m back with the second half of this obnoxious monster chapter of The Shadow Warriors. Last time, Edgelord was saved from being beaten up by Batman, Robin, and Nightwing by author fiat and got sent to prison in a more logical alternate dimension while the one we’ve been following continued to go after Joker.

The warriors slowly moved forward down the dirty horrific halls as they continued their search. They moved cautiously as they noticed Shadow started to cough, then Gauntlet and the Ronin.

Did you not stop to think that when Joker asked what you were afraid of, just maybe he meant you were going to be hit with fear gas (since you already knew Scarecrow was involved) and to think that just maybe you should’ve taken precautions against that?

I’m guessing not.

Because you all suck. Especially Shadow.

Hello once again, patrons! I’m your host, BatJamags, and I already riffed this chapter.

I kind of forgot to save the document. So if I sound more bored than usual, that’s why.

Chapter 11: Where To Look

Where to look for what? A good fanfic? Not here.
