JURGAN> Greg has said that Owen is asexual, so while it's not canon, it is Canon-In-Training.
Greg Bishansky - [Sorrows to the Stones]

There's nothing in canon that says for sure Owen is asexual- some people are just very private about their romantic/sexual lives. Owen could have a girlfriend/boyfriend/friend with benefits that we just never see. Conversely, there's nothing to say that he isn't asexual. It'd be entirely a guess based solely on what's in the show, and I have no trouble seeing him as asexual. Being a workaholic who's also stiff and "no fun" does not necessarily indicate anything about someone's sexuality, and is actually an unfair stereotype. However, since Puck basically created Owen as a stereotype of a super-dull human, I could see why he'd pick that as his sexual preference.

APRIL> I'm not surprised. Owen's always been married to his work.

Puck is another matter. Puck's probably Pan as Hell!

PS. Thanks for the plug, GXB


That's what Greg said. And I'm not shocked by it, at all.
Greg Bishansky - [Sorrows to the Stones]

In a fans opinion...is Owen truly asexual? This bit of info really shocked me..opinions please!!

Because he's too modest to do it himself, I'd like to pimp Algernon's latest fic. Really creepy.

"The Tenth Scholar" - It is the Year of Our Lord 1452. A rogue gargoyle sorceress and an exiled Wallachian prince find themselves inexorably drawn towards the legendary Scholomance; a school for the Dark Arts said to be overseen by the Devil himself. His fee... the soul of every tenth scholar.

Thank you, Bishansky.

Hufflepuffs are really good finders

Terrific list, MD! Thanks for all the work put into it.

I also think that, on a personal level, I need to give Todd Jensen credit for editing my stuff. He makes me look good.

Anyone else checked out Greenleaf (it's on Netflix now)?

Keith David's in it and he's superb.


For goodness' sake Masterdramon, I've got two fics I'm in the middle of and book I just started and now you throw all of this on my plate.

Awww, thanks for the plug, Al. There's still a LOT more to come for that particular story, but I'm pretty proud of how that first chapter turned out. :)

Now, in "honor" of my finally getting off my butt and joining this shared fic-verse, after...oh, about five months of bandying around concepts and procrastinating...I think it's high time I updated my outline of the various interconnected fics produced by our "group":

Warner Bros. Animation is venturing new episodes and entirely new series on an upcoming Boomerang online pay service (similar to Netflix). So, I was wondering if we might see <i>Young Justice</i> season 3 on this new streaming service in the near future?

Wow, I haven't been tenth in awhile.

So let's do it!

I've read Bishansky's latest fic, and enjoyed it.

[SPOILER] Demona getting her own gargoyle beast reminds me of a very bad creativity demon I once had where she acquired either a dog or a gargoyle beast with the unlikely name of Spot. Unfortunately, it's extremely unruly, ripping everything in her house to shreds, until she evicts it with the words - well, Demona's "Lady Macbeth"-ish atmosphere should give you some idea to what they were. Bishansky's depiction of her beast-adopting is a lot more probable than my idea, of course.

I definitely agreed with the Xanadu clan's philosophy of "the beast chooses you". When I went out some years ago to adopt a kitten after my old cat passed on, the one I found picked me more than I picked her - pawing at me in the Human Society room where I first met her, until she got my attention.

Gargoyles A Different Choice

There are an infinite number of universes, of possibilities. What if in, at least, one Demona was frozen alongside the rest of the future Manhattan Clan on that tragic night in 994 C.E.? How would events unfold differently once our favorite Gargoyles were revived by the scheming billionaire David Xanatos? Find out in my latest story. Sent in modern times; 2014 vs 1994

So Algernon, you're basically telling everyone to go forth and read?

For those who haven't checked them out yet, I highly recommend our very own MasterDramon and GregX latest fiction offerings Hawaiki and Xanadu. Both are quite excellent and well worth your time...



I guard your death

One is the loneliest number.
