sorry for the quality, maybe Iīll get access to a scanner next week and can thus update this deviation
so, I think I really need to explain this one.
Yes, this crack has a backstory.
This is the Trickster (James Jesse) - he is a supervillain from DC comics, who fights the Flash with things like yo-yos, rubber chicken and his airwalker shoes. And is awesome while doing it.
The guy with the umbrella is the Doctor from Doctor Who in his sixth incarnation. He travels in space and time, defeats monsters, etc and is also awesome while doing it.
He is famous for his colorful costume, especially his coat...the one that the Trickster is wearing.
Here is where it gets complicated.
Once upon a time, there was a Flash Rogues RP in which I played the Trickster. The Trickster II (Axel Walker) was played by afangirlsdream....and who was so awesome at it that I warmed up and started to love the little guy.
The RP died and thus one of my most cracky ideas wasnīt posted.
It was about Paul Gambi, the tailor of the Rogues, who talks about the Roguesī costumes and their weird color schemes. It was something like a nature documentary in which Gambi talks about the elder Trickster beating up the younger because his territory is threatened and he needs to establish dominance. But since both belong to the same tribe (of the very colorful pants and yoyos), he accepts the younger Trickster into his life and starts to protect him, guide him and try to be an awesome father. (Due to time zone troubles I mostly ended up playing at 2 am or so, so of course the crack was very prominent in my actions.)
What does this have to do with the sixth Doctor?
I have an idea for an epic Rogues/Doctor Who crossover, but I also asked myself: since the Trickster so would run off with the Doctor in his younger years....and probably also other times (mayhem in any time period in the whole of reality - hell yeah!) - with which Doctor would he make an awesome team?
And then I remembered my theory about people with similar costumes banding together because of primal urges. He probably saw the Doctor, imprinted on him and started to follow him around like a duckling. And heīd probably steal the coat. Just because. Itīs colorful! ....and the pockets are probably full of very interesting stuff.
So, thatīs why this picture exists.
