    Summary

    Bruce doesn’t know what’s wrong with his child, but he’s pretty sure kids aren’t meant to work like this.

     

    From the day he had looked up into the tops of the circus tent and saw a frightened mirror image of a boy who had just experienced the worst day of his life, Bruce had instantly gone into emergency mode.

     

    The Gotham PD had wanted to pass the boy off into the care of the circus. The circus had mumbled underneath their breaths about superstitions, about not having a boy like that with them, about not being able to handle something like Dick. So GCPD, not knowing what to do, had started talking about one of the handful of overburdened boy homes that handles a majority of Gotham’s unlucky orphans.

     

    All the while, the camera lights flash bright and loud, wanting to know everything.

     

    Bruce couldn’t let that happen.

     

    Not then, not ever again.

    -🦇-

    Bruce is trying his best to protect the city that he loves. He doesn't know how exactly his Robins came to be- they're not fully human, not even at all. All he knows is that he wants to keep them safe.

    Summary

    thatsochangeablechick: like i know there’s this post going around of Jason calling Bruce ‘dad’ sarcastically and getting freaked about it, but i want you to consider
    jason calls bruce ‘dad’ and b is visibly moved, gruff voice shaky, sheen of tears behind lenses and all that, as he tries to brush past it (bc if b made a big deal jay would flip his shit, for the discourse ™ )
    so jason gets into the habit of dropping the d-word in there just to see what he can get away with, want a batmobile? take it. fleeing his siblings after irritating them? you do you jay chum.

    ________

    "See, Tim?" Jason called over his shoulder sardonically. "Dad agrees with me."

    He turned back to his food for a moment before the thought suddenly occurred to him that the Cave had gone near silent. He cautiously glanced back at the others. Alfred was still working away at stitching Tim up. Tim looked a little pale and sweaty, but he was glancing over at Jason with a look that was a mixture of concern and confusion. Bruce was standing stock-still, seemingly staring off into space.

    Summary

    So maybe Tim enrolled in a photography competition, but it was only because he had slept through his art class for the last two weeks and the only way his teacher would pass him is if he promised to sign up.

    That doesn't make it a big deal.

    Why is his family making it a big deal?

    OR: Tim joins a competition and finally gets the love he deserves.

    Summary

    You either die a hero, or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain.

    That’s how the saying goes. Take enough punches from the universe and eventually it becomes harder and harder to pop back up, to see the worth in fighting back, to stop yourself from turning around and delivering some punches of your own.

    Tim never wanted to become the villain—

    “Appendicitis,” Tim breathed in disbelief. “Are you fucking kidding me?”

    —but he’d be lying if he said he wasn’t tempted to burn the world to ashes when shit like this kept happening to him.
