For my headcanon reboot. What job would you like Wally to have, if he’s not a man of independent wealth and does have a secret identity?
He’s been a mechanic, right? You like that? Or some other blue collar trade? Or do you prefer a college degree? A good or bad paying one? I do like him as car guy, either way. I don’t know if he can afford a great car, but he should definitely like them.
#28 “Why are you wearing a costume?”
This is it. This is my favourite one. I love Wally West with my entire heart okay?
Wally West loved Halloween. As in, ‘this is my favourite holiday of the year and I’m going all out’ kind of love. Free candy, funny costumes, getting to scare people? What more could he ask for? He loved Halloween - and he was going to be damn sure that he got you to love it as well.
The apartment that you shared with him was completely decked out in decorations. fake cobwebs, witches hats, the carved pumpkins that you had done as a date night. He had done a good job of it - even if it was a little bit of an over kill. Nonetheless, if Wally was happy with it, so were you.
Dick: Wally you just don’t understand what it’s like being famous.
Wally: *looks at Roy*
Roy, nods: * in a higher pitched voice* sorry hun but I can’t let you in.
Wally: but I’m his best friend! I brought him here can I at least know he’s fine?
Roy: unless you are a partner or family I can’t let you in. Oh Mr. Harper please go in a nurse will tell you where Mr. Grayson is.
Roy: or how about. Who are you?
Wally: Richard Grayson’s boyfriend I’m here to pick him up for bruce.
Roy: nice try kid but I’ve heard that before.
Wally: I HAVE PICTURE PROOF I’M WHO I SAY I AM! I EVEN KNOW THERE’S A CUTE MOLE IN JIS ASS!
Roy: so does every other stalker, leave before it gets ugly.
Wally: oh let’s not forget.
Roy: this is Grayson’s assistant how can I help you sir?
Wally: I’m here for my husband.
Roy: and your husband’s name is?
Wally: Richard Grayson, your boss.
Roy: I’m sorry I’ve never heard of him having a husband, please leave the premises before I call the guards.
Barbara: Are we dating
Dick, chocking: Whaat! No?
Barbara: You called me sunshine and honey this morning.
Dick: You’re my… friend. I call all my friends that.
Wally, in tears: YOU NEVER CALLED ME THAT
Dick manages to convince all his speedster and super friends to help him recreate the Twilight baseball scene with him
The results are very cursed
Donna: Did you know that Wally gives Artemis flowers every week?
Roy: So what?
Donna: I would like you to do the same.
Roy: throws a flower at Artemis Take this shit.
Artemis: But why?
Roy: I don’t know, I don’t understand either.
Running through fallen leaves is our Speedster favorite thing to do, however a certain birdie riding the redhead express hates the leaves that end up in his hair that he spent time on.
Wally: okay, not to make this worse but we need to boot out Dick.
Dick: I SAID I WAS SORRY ABOUT THE FUCKING BULLET IN ROY’S THIGH
Roy: hey, jay thinks it’s sexy so-
Wally: and my little buddy fucker.
Roy and Dick: please don’t call it that.
Donna: I agree with Wally.
Dick: wha- why!?
Donna: you a thick bitch, having you on this team district Wally because he’s looking at your ass-
Wally: fine ass.
Donna: - and Roy you have scarred poor Garth while you fucked Jason in the closet.
Wally: irony was not lost.
Dick: I CAN’T HELP IT OKAY THIS IS WHAT THE CIRCUSES DID, and life of fighting bullies and villains, DO YOU KNOW THE STRUGGLES OF FINDING PANTS TO NOT ONLY FIT ME BUT MAKE MY ASS LOOK GREAT!?
Wally: I KNOW I WAS THERE WHEN YOU WANTED TO GET FRISKY IN THE CHANGING ROOM.
Roy: OH BUT ME CLAPPING JAY’S CHEEKS IN THE CLOSET IS WORSE!?
Wally and Dick: YES!
Donna: it was at a gala and you made Jay finish on Oliver’s jacket so.
Roy: hey fuck Oliver, artie loved it.
Wally: Artie loves seeing the world burn what are you talking about. Oliver’s pain is like the second best.
Dick: tru tru.
Roy: okay so then what are you going to do without us? Dick does our taxes!!
Dick: yeah, I do the taxes!
Donna: okay fine we’ll come up with something for Wally to not die but his ass.
Wally: highly doubtful, it’s a magnet.
Roy: gross. But what about me?
Roy: *gasp dramatic* THAT BITCH!
Wally: YEAH ONLY ONE REDHEAD CAN STAY
Roy: BATTLE OF THE REDHEADS?
Wally: BATTLE OF THE REDHEADS!
Donna: welp that will keep them busy
Dick: yep, sex in the city?
Donna: we got at least three episodes worth, I’ll get the popcorn and Garth.
Dick: alright, hold on *scream in sparring room* KICK HIS ASS WALLY, DON’T FORGET WHAT JAY TAUGHT YOU ROY. *Close the door* okay make that five.
Donna: I love you
oh dear lord on a cheese kabob this question is difficult
i mean fuck do you know how many awesome characters, crossovers, and ideas would be fun to play around with? so. many. i mean you have your basic peter parker and dick grayson, that’s simple. and tony stark and bruce wayne’s rivalry is always fun to explore. and then you have to ask yourself whether you’re talking about the marvel cinematic universe or the x-men movie series or the comics, because if so, then that’s a whole different beast altogether.
but i think, if i really did have to choose, i’d go for johnny storm and wally west.
hear me out, okay? aside from the glaringly obvious fact that they both have acrobat vigilante boyfriends, i feel like their personalities mesh just enough for them to get along, but are different enough to be interesting.
they’re both cheerful, surface-level lighthearted characters who hide their much deeper feeling behind a façade of cheerfulness and bad jokes. they both have these overbearing authority figures, superpowered or not, that they love with all their heart but want them to treat them like an equal, which eventually does happen. they both are interested in mechanics, the down-and-dirty work of it, just because it’s fun, and it’s an insight into how their minds work: solving problems in a basic but efficient way that doesn’t always have to be full of fancy thinking and geniuses, but just some good observation work, a hunch, and some superpowers.
but the top reason i’d love to see these two interact is the relationship they have with their powers. both wally and johnny are absolutely in love with their abilities as a superhero. it courses through them, it’s a part of them, it makes them feel alive. however, it’s also the thing they fear most. well, maybe not most, but they’re both significantly frightened by their powers simply because of their magnitude. they don’t know the extent of them, they don’t know how powerful they really are. and they’re terrified to find out, because the limit is much further away than they let anyone think, and if they did truly let loose one day, they could kill a lot of people (which is shown a bit in dc, when wally lost control of his powers and killed a bunch of ppl, including roy, on accident. however, is i still think that wasn’t wally at his peak.) anyway, wally’s done some crazy stuff after absorbing all that power from the speedforce, and if we’re being honest, he doesn’t run through the speedforce, the speedforce runs through him. as for johnny, (as far as i know, i’m not completely up to date on ff comics) hasn’t actually found an upper limit for his powers. sure, he’s done things that cost him almost all of his energy and caused him to become exhausted. but he hasn’t hit his limit. and he can become a supernova if he wants to. he was once even forced to become the sun. the fucking SUN.
anyway, wally and johnny would just be a cool interaction to see, both because of their individual relationship with their powers and their fun, easy-going, but family and friend centered personalities.
thanks for the ask, babe. you made me actually think about this for a while, so kudos to you.

“Hold on for me Dick.. please…”
he doubts he can hear him, but it’s the only thing reverberating through his mind as he pushes his speed to get to the cave as quick as he can, joker be dammed, he’s not going to lose him like this.
I’d started on this a couple of weeks ago but finally got some time to finish it! It’s not the best but I wanted to get something out for the next leg of the story if I could. Thank you again for everyone who’s interested in my story so far!
Here’s the first part!
((If anyone has any idea on how to link it better please tell me I’m not that good at this))

In the pre-COIE stuff with them, they all have blue eyes in what I’ve
read (though some of that was in reprints and I certainly haven’t read
all appearances). I know late 90s and early 2000s, Barbara typically
had green eyes in Nightwing and Birds of Prey. Roy showed up with blue
eyes as late as 2009, though I only read the one issue of that title,
and don’t know if was a one-off. I checked the post-COIE Flash issues I
have, but eye color is not apparent in them.
I mean, it’s not important or anything, I’m just curious as to when the change was. Or if eye color fluctuated for a while or what. It just seems like all the redheads got eyes switched to green.
