The parallel of Myka’s father writing the novel of the loving relationship he’d never managed to have with Myka, and Myka writing the novel of the loving relationship she hasn’t managed to have with Helena.

*weep*

… but only barely getting to page 6 because their story is really only just beginning and Myka knows it and needs to keep having hope.

#Bering and Wells #Adding some pain to the meta #Because of course a year ago she finally admitted her feelings to herself #and it was a damn love letter in words #but she didn’t know where to send it #and so it was all novel beginnings and hope #and no end yet #not yet #Not all wonder is endless (via solvingpuzzles-savingtheday)

Batwoman’s Mom Could’ve Kicked Your Butt

Gabrielle “Gabi” Kane (Batwoman/Kate Kane’s mom) has been identified as USAF in some wikia and writeups, apparently starting with this RPG.net thread where some posters concluded she was Air Force contigent on her service uniform being colored wrong. I think this is wrong.

Because the images aren’t active any more on that thread, I don’t know how much her fatigues were taken into consideration versus the service uniform. If the USAF theory is actually true, well, I don’t know how quickly someone can change U.S. military branches and rise in the ranks because she was very definitely Army in the first sequence. Time for pictures!

For her combat unit patch, the best visual match I’ve found thus far is below:

This is the insignia for the 525th Battlefield Surveillance Brigade, a military intelligence unit with the U.S. Army. Jacob says when he’s coming up with Kate’s training:

Key phrase: intel, used to work with your mother.” We know from this that Gabi was working in intelligence. I think the 525th is a fit. Bonus: their headquarters is Fort Bragg, which is also the HQ for the U.S. Army Special Forces (“Green Berets”)— which was Jacob’s unit. However, the images aren’t a perfect match. The shield shape is different (rounded versus pointed at the bottom), the checkered squares are in the opposite pattern in the green variant, and the lightning bolt as drawn has a different orientation (not sure how to describe).


But here’s the big stumper— her service dress uniform:

This post brought to you by my continued sadness that we’ll never get the intended conclusion to “The Blood is Thick”.

Alice’s Alice Dialogue

I really loved how Alice quoted Alice— only Alice. None of the other Carrollian characters are quoted, just Alice herself, and the words are used brilliantly to work in context rather than just dropped in senselessly.

Among other things that the Batwoman Annual didn’t get right, Beth’s Alice dialogue was a pretty obvious one. It was made especially obvious by using her signature white-on-wavy-black word bubbles, previously only used when Alice was being Alice and speaking as Alice. When Rucka and Williams and Blackman were writing her, only Beth’s own words were in standard text bubbles. The Annual instead went with the signature look all over dialogue that shouldn’t have had it. It goes with my thinking of anything in Batwoman post-#24 as being in the New 52 universe, whereas before it felt directly continued with only cosmetics signs of New 52 (Gordon’s hair; Wonder Woman’s costume.) I guess in New 52, Alice is not Alice!

Anyway! Because I’m way too into both Alice characters (and for a past RP so not just for kicks), I actually looked up all the dialogue to confirm that Alice = Alice. I never went and shared the research, but now it feels timely. I abbreviated the book titles to AAIW and TTLG with chapter numbers cited (no sense citing pages since editions vary). The ALL CAPS are where the comics lettering was done with emphasis. And, of course, all words were spoken by Alice and Alice.

Oh wow, super blast from the past. I used to go to their physical store to track down back issues while my dad looked for action figures. I thought they were just some awesome little local store that closed shop. No idea they were still around in some form with such longtime fans. Keep going strong, Intergalactic Trading!
