A Utility Belt Full of Crap (And a Positive Outlook) - A Batgirl Fanmix  


A Utility Belt Full of Crap and a Positive Outlook
A Stephanie Brown/Batgirl Mix

Down – Metric
After tonight another day, a chance to feel a different way. The sun is slowly changin' size still, sorrow in your eyes, sorrow in your eyes.

Painless – Mae
All these fading lights, have made me search for something more. Will there be a new tomorrow? Until this empty place is filled, I’ll keep pretending. Hey! Wait! Knock me down, and I'll get up again. Oh! Pain! A remedy that can erase your sting. I’ll keep holding, and I’ll keep trying, tonight.

A Matter of Time – Cartel
‘Cause where you are is where you'll be, always wanting everything. It's all the same and you can't ignore, ‘cause all you want is just to be more. It's creeping up again (it’s all things considered, it's a game and you're not the winner.) It's a haunting memory.

The Aftermath – Treaty of Paris
Tear it down and start again, if you’ve got nothing you’ve got nothing to lose. Come to terms and understand, if you’ve got nothing you’ve got nothing to prove.

Brave – Kelis
I was super cool, but now I'm super strong. I had nothing to loose, but I was super wrong. It was the circumstance I got the power from. I was super tough but now I'm super strong.

Unexpected Places – The Academy Is…
We always had been caged by the choices that we make. You sold yourself so short. Is this the way to carry on? In the most unexpected places, I see changes in the most unexpected faces.

Steph does kick all sorts of ass, and I agree, I'm sad to see her original artist go, but I'm digging the new watercolor ones in a different sort of way. As long as Mr. Q. Miller stays on as her writer, though, I'll be happy. He's done her more justice than any Bat writer has in years.

Agreed! I am such a fan of him (though I am picky about who does her art as well), I think he really has a good grasp of Steph's character, I think one of his best moments was when she slaps Bruce and then runs yelling out "I'm glad you're not dead!", oh that and the title of your fanmix, this is Stehp's life philosophy.

I'm sorry, but Bruce really had that shit coming. I'm glad that Steph got to speak her mind. But at the same time I'm really irritated that the entire Batgirl thing, which was supposed to be about Steph reclaiming her independence, just wound up being another testing move of bat-dickery on Bruce's part. Though I suppose that's just part of being a member of the bat family, when you get down to it.

And I really wish I was able to adopt that philosophy as my own. Maybe that should be my new year's resolution ;)

I definitely see your point there but I think that Steph made Batgirl her own in a way Bruce could never predict, I was really glad she slapped him 'cause he definitely needed one for pulling that stunt. I've always been of the opinion that Batgirl was never his mantel to pass but Babs' so as soon as Babs was on board I think that was the only approval that would matter.

You'll probably have to get a utility belt(and optional thigh garter), but then again I can't think of a situation have a utility belt would be a bad thing?
