YJAU - Auld Acquaintance

Did you need some YJAU feels?

Posted to TUMBLR here: [link]
Please reblog from me rather than making a new Tumblr post.


YJ Fandom, you make me sad. We’re so forgiving and supportive of Conner’s clone situation, but less so of Roy’s. Yes, they need to find and rescue the original, but the Roy we have known is still a person.They gave him fake memories and purpose, fake programming. But clone!Roy came into action when Speedy originally became Green Arrow’s sidekick. Chances are, the clone is the only version of Roy the team has ever known. The years they share and the emotional bonds created were with clone!Roy, not Speedy. While they need to rescue Speedy, with the mind control gone, the Roy they knew personally and cared for is still the clone.

CloneRoy/RedArrow is the best. I could care less really about the original Roy

That is exactly what I was thinking about clone!Roy when I watched the episode yesterday. Most of them don't even KNOW real!Roy.

Thank you Kaldur! That's exactly what I though!

Personally I was thinking "Aaaannnd why should I care about Speedy? He was NEVER ON THE SHOW. The only Roy we've seen on the show was the clone, and he's a pretty cool dude. Also, yay for Clark finally stepping up as a dad. And yay for the Robin vs. Batman fight with slight hints of Nightwing (with the escrima).

Oh man, have people really been saying that? xD;;;; That's--I don't get that.

I just want to hug him a lot...I was basically like 'ROOOOOOY ;;;' the entire time. When Savage was putting the Starro tech on him I was freaking out, haha. ;;;

I'm hoping something vaguely similar happens in season two. :)
JaqFrost's avatar
I hope so too.

.... in the comics, Conner had to spend a day at the Kent farm before knowing about Clark...
elfgrove's avatar
I know. I read that.

This isn't the comics though?
SilverZeo's avatar
Yeah, but I was hoping to have a "Superboy and Clark Kent" episode, where he has to protect Clark Kent during an attack, or somehow lands in the Kent farm and helps Ma.
