Hello, once again, patrons! I’m your guest host, BadJamags…

GoodJamags: … And I’m your guest guest host, GoodJamags…

… And we’re back for more of Love & Bullets, the fic that never ceases to find new ways to disappoint us, while still refusing to stop being boring!

GoodJamags: In the last chapter, Damian Wayne got involved, and the story just wouldn’t shut up and move on.

As satisfying as it was to repeat that particular phrase, we’ll stop doing it here so that it doesn’t get too grating. Anyway, let’s skip the usual canned author’s note and get on to the fic!

… And we’re back for more of Love & Bullets, the fic that never gets to the damned point.

Last time, we met Damian Wayne, the ever-obnoxious son of Batman. He bitched about some stuff, and had another pointless flashback. Let’s just get started.

GoodJamags: … And I’m your guest guest host, GoodJamags…

… And we’re back for more of Love & Bullets, the fic which seems rather lacking in love and entirely lacking in bullets.

GoodJamags: There seriously has not been a single bullet since we’ve started this thing. Look!

Bullet count: 0

Anyway, we start out with the usual canned author’s note and-

GoodJamags: Line break!

To get to the start of the chapter.

Hello once again, patrons! I’m your guest host, BadJamags…

GoodJamags: … And I’m your guest guest host, GoodJamags…

… And we’re back with more of Love & Bullets, the fic that can take an obscene amount of time to say absolutely nothing. I haven’t been snarking the chapter titles so far, since they’ve been fairly bland, but this one is called “The White Rose.”

GoodJamags: That was the Yorks, right? *Looks up* I was right! Aw, yeah, who’s the smartest history genius ever?

Probably someone who’s actually graduated college. What my counterpart is referring to is the Wars of the Roses, one of Britain’s civil wars. It was a conflict between the houses of Lancaster (the symbol of which was a red rose) and York (the symbol of which was a white rose). Ultimately, it was actually the Tudors who came out on top. Probably because their rose was both red and white.

GoodJamags: Fancy. And to be fair, the Lancasters were only assigned the red rose in retrospect after Henry Tudor came up with the combo-rose, and the Yorks had only recently started using the white one.

Oh, and it’s also the name of a popular ship in the RWBY fandom.

GoodJamags: Perhaps most relevantly, Carmine Falcone, a major crime boss in several versions of the Batman canon, uses a white rose as his calling card.

Anyway, let’s not drag this boring piece of shit out longer than it already is.  At this point, I’m just going to skip the canned author’s note. You’ve seen it before.

Hello once again, patrons! I’m your guest host, BadJamags…

GoodJamags: … And I’m your guest guest host, GoodJamags…

… And we’re back for another riff of Love & Bullets, the fic that spent four chapters on two plot points.

GoodJamags: And let’s be fair here: the second plot point didn’t come into play until the end of the fourth chapter.

Speaking of which, we closed out last chapter with CONTRIVED DRAMA, and now the Sue… extra doesn’t want to marry Dick or something. I must’ve been asleep at that part.
