Sticky Post Is Sticky Until Further Notice  
I guess one of us mods should make an introductory post hm?

Hello and welcome to the community, created by the lovely and talented crippled. Her and I, along with cloudyjenn will be your mods.

I'm taking a liberty here, though I think this will work out in the long run, and keep your flists from getting spammed.

This is the official introductory post. Instead of making your own individual posts stating who you are and whatnot, do it here in the comments. Tell us who you are, and anything else you prefer. I'd also like it if you tell us if you're willing to beta fic or art, because I know a lot of people new to the fandom, or new to fic writing in general are in need of them. Eventually I'll compile a list of names and email addresses to put into the userinfo so the information will be readily available. Tell us what you're willing and not willing to beta (BDSM, kinks, fetishes, angst, anything that squicks you, stuff that you just don't like). There's a beta out there for everyone!

I know rules haven't been set up yet, we're working on those, and so far all the posts (all, what? 4 of them as of right now) are okay. If you break the rules, I probably won't be as lenient as the other mods, so you better catch yourself or hope that crippled or cloudyjenn catches you instead (I'm not a mean person, but you should always read the rules before you post, they're there for a reason).

Some things to look forward to from my end:
Montly Fic/Art Challenges
Comment!fic/art prompts
Anything else I get an idea to do

I'm babbling so, once again, thank you for joining and let the introductions begin. I'll start off first as an example, but feel free to do your own thing.

I'm Ikura, or Bale, or whatever you want to call me. I'm 21, and I just recently joined the Air Force so I may disappear for a few days at a time due to that reason.

I've been a fan of the Batman comics ever since I could read. I'd recommend The Killing Joke and No Man's Land, if you're wanting to get in to the comic part of this fandom. Both have some very nice Batman/Gordon moments along with more angst than you can chuck a Batarang at.

I DO beta fics. I'll read pretty much anything for beta purposes, though I'm not really a fan of hardcore BDSM. I'd prefer Batman/Gordon/Bruce exclusively (no Joker or Dent or anyone else thrown in) but if you're really strapped and needing a beta I'll make an exception.

That's it for me! If you have any questions or want to hit me up for fic advice or need me to be a beta or just to chat, my email is ciaranislove@gmail.com and my MSN is akumaalucard@hotmail.com (don't just add me and try to IM me, I have my messages set to friends only, so I'll need to add you too, otherwise I won't get any of your IMs).

This is by far my favorite icon ever.

The Killing Joke was intense. o: I only read it very recently, and I was in Barnes&Noble with my friends... I'm only glad they weren't reading over my shoulder. XD
I really adore Year One, though.

I need to read moar Batman. D<
(and Watchmen, but that's completely off topic. xD)

A Hello To All
Hi my name is Katie. I tend to neglect my journal (as is obvious) but I'm on quite often. I was so excited to find this community. I love Gordon and Bruce/Gordon/Batman is just lovely. I don't write fics myself and though I do draw, I don't tend to post any fanart so I'm more of a lurker, but not to worry I do comment on the stories I read!
I tend to read any type of fic with them whether it be gen/friendship or slash.
I've never beta'd a story before so I'm not sure how it works but I'd be willing to give it a go. I'm not so into BDSM or hardcore kink, but I do read other pairings too (though none are anywhere near as good)
I believe that brings my introduction to a close. Thanks all and I hope you keep the fics and art coming in.
hilaryundersea on July 26th, 2008 01:37 pm (UTC)
Hilary (undersea) here. I write (nothing for Batman yet!) and make icons (occasionally). I don't beta often, but I am willing - I am almost always on the computer, so if you need something looked at fast, then I'm your girl. I'll have it back to you ASAP. So feel free to contact me if you need a beta (I'll read anything, no matter the pairing, etc.) - you can just message me through LJ or undersea[at]livejournal.com.
petrichor: im in ur bankkyandui on July 26th, 2008 06:01 pm (UTC)
hey all! ;] my name is fiona, but i've somehow picked up the nicknames shoy, ryu, and combo from some of the awesome people here on the interwebz. you can call me any one of these, and i'll know you're talkin' to me.

i seem to have something against long paragraphs, and using the shift key when not typing fanfiction or whatever else i'm writing. i'll do it occasionally, but don't go expecting omfg!literate posts when i'm just hangin' around. :]
i'm 15 (god, i feel young), and i've loved batman since forever. my mom used to have this old copy of "The Dark Knight Returns" (which is totally great, but in a weird sci-fi batman way... or something). i've been fascinated with batman for the longest time, and my favorite movie was "Batman Forever" for the longest time. x]

"Batman Begins" really started off my teen years, lulz.

i CAN beta fics. i generally think i'm better at being overly-critical of my own work than actually getting over that and just writing. there are few things i'll write that i truly like. but beta-ing is something i think i'm good at. o: i can't take on too many commitments at once, though. lulz. i do have a life (for the most part).

uhm. if you wanna chat, my aim is kyandui and my e-mail is kyandui@gmail.com. thassaboutit? o:
petrichor: im in ur bankkyandui on July 26th, 2008 06:03 pm (UTC)
also forgot to put out there that my fav pairing at the moment is gordon/bruce. 8D it's good times, ne?
i also seem to have a fondness for ducard/bruce from Batman Begins.
i'm silly like that.
dap!: heyhappydappydrunk on July 27th, 2008 05:45 pm (UTC)
Hullo! I'm Dap.

Sad to say, but I've never really read much of the comics. I was too busy with cartoons as a kid, and have only recently been collecting graphic novels and such, when my wallet allows. However, Batman has always been my favorite super hero. I seriously shun all the other sissies who need "powers." All you need is a utility belt and mad funds to save the world Gotham. Nolanverse sort of solidified my love for the characters, and I finally took it on as a fandom interest.

Gordon/Wayne (Batman) is an awesome ship, as far as I'm concerned. (Gary Oldman playing Gordon sealed the deal for me.) I'm a stickler for ICness in stories, so most of what I write will probably be gen. However, I'm more than willing to beta something, as long as it isn't PWP. There must be some plot and character development or else I will be a sad puppy. As a beta, I think I'd be fairly good for characterization flaws, if you feel you're sorely lacking in that department. So, if you're interested, hit me up at waldo@uga.edu or feel free to send me an instant message on AIM at wabblywaldo. A message over LJ works just as well. :)

A note to the mods, with no disrespect intended, you might want link to this post so it doesn't get lost, because out of order dating doesn't work on communities (which is so very frustrating). It's super easy to do. You just go to "Customize Your Theme" and then "Links List" to put in the URL and link title.
jtree: Blackjtree on July 29th, 2008 07:46 pm (UTC)
Hello there,
I'm a multi-fandom person who just ended up reading Bat/Gordon by a mere accident really. Having initially not considered the slash potential in this fandom on my first viewing of the film, I just came in search of some random gen fiction but found the Bat-slash instead. One look at this pairing and I was converted. The fact that Gary Oldman is such a wonderful actor, one of my favourites, was naturally a big factor in this. (Although, Christian Bale's troubled and beauteous Bat didn't really hurt either.) I think as characters those two just balance out each other so wonderfully. I'm afraid I can't write worth shit and I won't pretend being able to reliably beta for you guys, unfortunately. But I suppose I can draw things if I'm pestered enough. Anyway, I'll be watching the comm.
solarassolaras on July 30th, 2008 03:46 am (UTC)
Hello All,

I'm a bit late to the party, but I'm late to everything. Thumbs up to the mods. This pairing needs its own community. Also I wanted to say that I've been enjoying everyone's fics, and hope to see more. :)

Other than that, I am Solaras, and I've been writing a few Gordon and Bruce pieces. Most notabley The Clues In Front of Us. Batman has completely taken over my brain, and I expect to be hanging around this fandom for some time, so I will see everyone around.
Dee Double-youbrieze on July 30th, 2008 05:16 pm (UTC)
I'm Aubrie. I'm 18, a long-time slash reader/writer, and I'm getting ready to go off to college for music, so my participation may be limited.

While I'm not too consistent with posting my writing, I hope I can put up some Gordon/Bruce ultra-angst fics, which tend to be my specialty. With my love of the Bats rekindled by the new movie and some new comic purchases, I'm so ready to immerse myself in this slashy goodness. :D

I do not beta only because I'm simply unreliable in getting your fics back with quality critiques. I tend to procrastinate horribly.

I'm excited for this place to start booming! :D I can sense it's going to be great fun had by all.
Sophiasnarry_fan7 on August 2nd, 2008 08:23 pm (UTC)
I'm Sophia. I'm a fan of several different fandoms; Harry Potter was my first and I ship Snape/Harry as my username says. I spend a lot of my time reading manga and watching anime. I've been shipping Gordon/Wayne since Batman Begins and I was so pleased at the amount of slashy bits in The Dark Knight. I'm not big on writing fiction. I wrote some for Snape/Harry, but I'm much better at reading and leaving comments, lol. I do beta, but I'll be very busy this coming fall semester and I don't know how much time I'll actually have for beta work. I'll be going abroad in the spring and although I should have regular internet access I don't know if I'll have the time to beta. Basically, email me first to see if I have time; if I don't, no hard feelings. I'll never refuse a beta job because I don't like the story or person. I don't squick at all, except when it comes to het. Since this is a slash community I don't think I'll have a problem with that, lol. The het squick applies only to characters originally of that gender. So, say you decide to do a genderswitch fic, I'll be perfectly willing to beta it. I'm a bit weird like that.~Sophia
girl_on_moon on August 7th, 2008 04:17 am (UTC)
I too am a bit late, but better late than never.

I'm Virginia, a long time Batman fan who has always enjoyed writing and fan fiction, though I only wrote my own first fic tonight. The Gordon/Batman(Bruce) pairing is my true OTP (I adore Gary Oldman, so him playing Gordon is just awesome).

I can beta fics, if anyone is interested, though I do work the night shift, so I may not get to them till early morning. You can reach me at shady.silver.grove@gmail.com

I look forward to meeting you all and reading lovely fics!

TheSummoningDark: scotlandthe_summoning_d on August 18th, 2008 02:34 am (UTC)
Hey everybody *waves* I'm TSD, or Claire if you prefer. I'm an engineering student from Scotland. I like fast cars, explosions, football, pretty girls, and explosions...so despite being female I'm really a bit of a bloke ;)

I liked 'Batman Begins' well enough, dabbled briefly in Wayne/Crane fic before losing interest. But then I saw TDK and it totally blew me away. So here I am, fandom! Be afraid!

I'll read pretty much anything: a good writer can sell me on the most utterly cracked-out of pairings, and apparently I am un-squick-able. OOC writing and bad grammar still have the power make me cringe, so I'm very willing to beta in the name of improving fic quality.

I'm l1fesab1tchandsoam1@hotmail.co.uk</i> if you want to drop me a line. Looking forward to being a member here :)

Hello all!

I'm Mer, and I don't have any cool nicknames (but I'm always open to them!). I'm 18, and when I'm not busy with studies or laming around with my friends, I'm laming around on the internet.
I've always been a fan of Batman, but my love was recently rekindled by The Dark Knight. Batman/Gordon is one of my favorite pairings (obviously, tis why I'm here), but I'm also a fan of Harvey/Batman.

I love to write, and I especially love to beta, though I really can't take on too too much right now. I don't have much of a problem with most stuff... I'm not big on BDSM but it doesn't completely freak me out. Message me through LJ if your looking for a beta. :)
As for myself, I do OCCASIONALLY write, but I'm super self-critical so I doubt I'll ever actually post any of it. I draw, a tad more confident at that (but not by much) so you might see a glimpse of that.

-Anyways- Super excited to watch this community and can't wait to see the Bruce/Gordon action. Peace out!

Nikkisnapini on August 18th, 2008 01:37 pm (UTC)
Hi there!

I only just found this community, so a bit of a late comer (as I am to the Batman fandom), but thought I'd say hi anyhow.
My name is Nikki and I'm 23. I only got into Batman after seeing Batman Begins, but I'm totally hooked now. After seeing TDK I'm rabid for anything that is Bruce/Gordon/Batman, so I'm super duperly happy that I stumbled across this comm!

I don't write fic because my imagination does not extend too far, but I love reading other peoples' work, especially when it's obvious they've put a lot of care and thought into it.

I've never beta'd before, but if you're in need of any extra help just let me know. I have a lot of time on my hands, and I'm open to any rating of fic - I'm really not easily shocked!
Gabriel Nikolas Adairgabrieladair on August 18th, 2008 03:51 pm (UTC)
Hello all! My name's Gabriel, it's a pleasure to meet you. ::Waves:: I plan on being active in the comm, at least reviewing on hopefully a daily basis. I'm also trying to write a bruce/jim fic, my muse just... is not being helpful at the moment. (jim/stephens was just... very pretty in the dk movie.) Anyway. :-P
I'm willing to beta for anybody and I'm usually very easy to get ahold of, either email me gabriel.nikolas.adair@gmail.comm or AIM aksanakrycek
Nothing's really squicky for me.... ::cough:: My mind is a dark and dangerous place. I'll also beta any pairings, np.

Brightbearbrightbear on August 22nd, 2008 04:14 am (UTC)
Okay, I was lurking around for a while before I noticed this post existed

So, hi! I'm brightbear.

I'm both a fic writer and a reader. I tend to bounce around from fandom to fandom (for a full list of fandoms see my website). I haven't felt the urge to write yet because I've been so busy reading everybody else's, which generally have such a high standard in this fandom. I wasn't really a fan of Batman but I went to see Dark Knight because I heard that Heath Ledger's Joker was worth seeing. I loved the movie and Heath's performance but it was Gordon that caught my attention. After that I went back to Batman Begins and I'm actually contemplating reading some comics. Totally sold on the fandom now.

I'm willing to beta if anybody wants. I don't have any comic-background knowledge and I won't do character-death but I'm willing to do any pairing or rating.
