Jedi Apprentice #2: THE DARK RIVAL by Jude Watson
Library : Reread : Finished
I FORGOT TO TAKE A PICTURE OF THIS ONE TOO. And then I returned it to the library. And then SEVERAL weeks passed. I did not do good on this one. But I mean, the short version is, if you’re ever looking for Batman fanfic about how Bruce has not fully accepted Tim in the aftermath of Jason’s death and then Jason shows up and everyone’s emotions are kind of sketchy and uncomfortable but truly, in the end, it seems like Jason is all not that redeemable despite being sad and competent and fairly smouldering in the looks department, and even Bruce comes to admit perhaps only out of his own weakness Tim is a safe bet for adorable sidekick duty–WELP. LET ME TELL YOU. THAT FANFIC IS LITERALLY THIS BOOK but with Jedi, obviously, and in space, and XANATOS has a circular scar on his cheek instead of a dashing hank of white hair. But remember the time Jason bullied the organized criminal element and in becoming MORE BATMAN THAN BATMAN, BECAUSE BATMAN WAS TOO LENIENT AND WEAK AND HAD NO IMAGINATION he just like…murdered people a lot and was kind of a scuzz?
Basically just swap the names, is what I’m saying. At least Jason didn’t have a satin cape.
STAR WARS AND BATMAN, BEST FRIENDS FOREVER.
