2 Works in Robin DeSanto
Robin just wants to be liked. She has no idea why Roz an’ Her Lesbian can’t understand that.
I've got a lot of headcanons explaining Robin's politics and so I decided to write a fic about them!
She has been in politics too long to lose the best job she's ever hated to something like Oops, I Want To Hold Hands With Poor White College Lesbian Who Likes Cartoons. Her career has aged her soul like bad French cheese.
It's her best shot, but it may or may not matter to her whether or not she pulls it off and does good with it, even knowing she doesn't fire on all cylinders at all times. In this moment, she is in the bathroom of someone who hums "I'm Changing My Major To Joan" while making cruelty-free pancakes that aren't objectively worse than drunken 3AM chain restaurant pancakes. She kind of wants to propose.
She wants to be General Leia in the heart of an adult woman who probably scrupulously tags all of her secret Steven Universe discourse. It could be a side effect of the camera flash, but she's thinking it might be love.
