It's Only the End if You Want it to Be

Hey, I don't know if you've ever made a post about this or something, but I want to read some Teen Titans stuff, but I don't think I have the time or patience to read all of the New Teen Titans or something like that. Do you think Titans was a good series, and what would you suggest for someone who wants to read stuff with the Fab Five.

I actually have made a somewhat related post, when someone asked me where a good place to start reading Teen Titans would be. You can check out that post here.

As for Titans, the first run was quite good when Devin Grayson was writing it, IMO. But being that this is Devin Grayson, I do have some issues with it - I don’t really like how she wrote Roy and Donna’s relationship, for one. But still, I think the book was quite good when she was writing it. (She wasn’t at her Devin Grayson-iest yet.) 

After she left, the book got less and less good, IMO, and I am really not partial to the second volume of Titans at all. I’d give that one a pass.

If you’re looking for Fab Five stuff, the Devin Grayson Titans is definitely not a bad place to go. Also, I don’t know if you’re looking for trades or individual issues, but if you’re shy of reading the entire NTT (and believe me, almost no one’s actually read the entirety - I certainly haven’t) I’d recommend picking up the Who is Donna Troy? trade. It contains not only the original Who Is Donna Troy? arc but also her wedding issue, both of which are absolutely fantastic. (Also some later stories which I don’t like nearly as much, but YMMV.)

The Return of Donna Troy is also a really good arc to read if you’re looking for something more recent. Phil Jimenez has an incredibly good grasp of the characters, and the interactions between them are beautiful.

JLA/Titans: The Technis Imperative is a great self-contained Titans story with some fantastic interaction between the Fab Five.

If you wanted to go really vintage, of course, you could try the first volume of the original Teen Titans run.

A more modern take on the early days of the Fab Five is Teen Titans: Year One. It’s not a perfect take in my eyes, but it definitely wins points for cuteness!

These aren’t specific to the Fab Five, but if you’re looking to get into the Teen Titans then The Judas Contract and The Terror of Trigon are both absolute must-reads. Both are currently available in trade.

While this isn’t involving the whole Fab Five, I absolutely love the arc where Dick helps Roy get Lian back. More than any other interaction between them, this is the story that defines their relationship to me. It’s currently available in the trade Nightwing: Old Friends, New Enemies.

Lastly, New Teen Titans: Games is a great self-contained Titans story. Just remember that it’s not part of the main continuity, but a little bit of an AU!

You’re not really a Bat until you have a picture of your besties that you keep around for the express purpose of staring angstily at it.

Well, I owe you all more than I can explain. You’re my lifeline and safety net and I’ve never regretted doing anything I’ve had the honor to do with you. - Dick Grayson

Anonymous asked:

Who was part of the teen titans when dick was around 15 or 16?

Wally, Garth, Donna, and Dick himself. Going by the original canon, Roy didn’t officially join the team until later (in Teen Titans #19), when Dick would have been more like 17. (However, he had been a guest star/part-time member on the team going back almost to the very beginning.) If you go by the Teen Titans: Year One canon, however, Roy was a Titan right from the start.

Despite this, Dick, Wally, Donna, Garth and Roy are generally considered the “original Titans”, even if you go by the version of canon where Roy joined the team slightly later than the others.

I miss this team ;_;, Teen Titans, where&#8217;s Starfire though?
Dick, Roy, Garth, Wally and Donna were the original five Teen Titans (a.k.a the Fab Five). They first teamed up in The Brave and the Bold in the 1960&#8217;s, and were featured in their own Teen Titans series starting in 1966.
It wasn&#8217;t until the advent of New Teen Titans (1980) that Starfire joined the team, along with Cyborg, Raven, and Beast Boy. So the fact that Kory is not in this picture makes perfect sense, as this depicts only the original five. You can also tell that this depicts the pre-NTT Titans by Donna&#8217;s costume - she&#8217;s wearing her original Wonder Girl costume here, while by the time of New Teen Titans she&#8217;d moved on to a more adult look, as seen here on the cover of New Teen Titans #1.
Hope that helps!

There may be fic. Consider yourself warned :D

Oh my god.

Life = made.

I don’t see how anyone could see how much we love each other and not be moved to the creation of fanfiction. We’re like Babs and Dinah! …WHICH WE SHOULD COSPLAY SOMEDAY.

WE SHOULD TOTALLY COSPLAY BABS AND DINAH.

I always saw us as being rather like Dick/Donna too actually. It’s where I got the “true platonic love” part of our ship tag. Like, you KNOW if Dick and Donna had tumblrs they would totally have late-night lovefests like we do: “I LOVE YOU.” “I LOVE YOU MORE.” “NO SHUT UP YOU ARE ADORABLE.” “TITANS FOREVER!!” “UGH YOU ARE SO CUTE I WISH I COULD BE HUGGING YOU RIGHT NOW.” “RIGHT BACK AT YOU HON.” “DID I MENTION THAT I LOVE YOU??”

… I should write fanfic of this actually.

But basically we are EPIC PLATONIC LOVE and I am not even remotely surprised that this has inspired fanfiction. EVERYONE SHOULD SHIP US.

OMFG THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT WE ARE. Oh GOD that is so beautiful. They would absolutely stay up all night obnoxiously blogging about how much they love each other and how perfect the other one is until Oracle’s patience snaps and she kickbans both of them. …from the internet. The whole thing. 

She can do that all right. 

Of COURSE she can. She is the Oracle. She OWNS THE WORLD, okay. ESPECIALLY the parts of it that are online. XD

And Roy would totally get annoyed and send them messages like “GOD, could you two even BE any more sappy, you’re driving me nuts. *eyeroll*” and Dick and Donna would be all “Aw! C’mon Roy, we love you too! YOU SHOULD JOIN IN OUR LOVEFEST.” “OOH! And get Wally and Garth while you’re at it and then we can have a FAB FIVE LOVEFEST YOU KNOW YOU WANT TO.” And Roy would just be all “You guys are making me nauseous.” But D&D would not even care because they would be too busy platonically squeeing over each other’s perfection and how much they adore each other.

Variant cover to Teen Titans Vol. 3 #100 by Phil Jiminez, and pinup drawn by Marcus To in honor of the same.

Anyone ever notice how similar these two pieces are?

I think they’re both gorgeous,

Ugh, Fab Five feelings everywhere!

AMAZING FRIENDSHIPS.

WHYYYYY would you want to write this out of continuity, DC? WHY?!?!?!?!?!? I don’t understand you.

And why are THREE of these five characters no longer part of the DCU at all? Why is THAT, DC?

*deep breath* I will stop whining now and focus on the adorable amazingness. This is how I see these characters and their friendships, always. They were such a huge and integral part of each other’s lives, and the love and friendship between them will never, ever go away. I don’t even need to say anything more, because I think the (wonderful) dialogue here says it for me. Such a powerful moment, and I love the last image of all of them clasping hands.

This history is vital to each and every one of these characters, DC. You ignore that history, and you ignore a huge part of what makes them who they are.
