Izzy and Alec are the best we’ve got.

when dick was robin and batman was still considered to be mostly this elusive myth, dick absolutely started a conspiracy youtube account whose sole purpose was to post #BatmanConfirmed!! videos, that were just really bad minute-long mystery montages of grainy pictures of shadows outlined with red ms paint lines and arrows — “teh batman was here!!!” and “indisputable proof of batman’s exercisetense!” videos that were immensely popular bc dick is an asshole at heart and usually the grainy photos would actually have batman and robin in them reflected in glass or in pools of water or something equally as frustrating and hidden. and so even when batman actually was #confirmed, the TheTruthIsBatthere account had reached infamy so that even 30 second videos of smog reached thousands of views because a bat-ear could barely be seen in the corner sorta

and like the robin legacy, dick totally passed down the account, so that each robin attempted to outdo the others by getting the most views on their videos. jason’s “this is how i die” video was of him actually falling off a building, laughing like a maniac, and ended with a black gauntlet hand forcibly moving the lens of the camera away and a black smudge saving robin from falling to his death. tim’s was filmed like a crappy noir film, all in black and white with a bad orchestral song in the background, with, in the distance, vaguely, batman and robin jumping from roof to roof, doing sweet flips and looking appropriately cool and mysterious. stephanie, for the short time she had the account, just straight up gave the camera to a criminal mid-patrol and then proceeded to beat the crap out of them, the camera skidding far away and only catching her boots and sweet kicks. damian, petty as fuck, refusing to be second best at anything, ever, somehow convinced dick (read: casually mentioned in passing, to which dick enthusiastically agreed) to film him say, deadpan, in the Batman Voice in full Batman Gear, “i am the night.” all the robins (sans dick, who thinks it’s hilarious) hate him and say it’s cheating. the video has over a three million views, handidly more than any other video on the TheTruthIsBatthere account. bruce is just done with his kids and wants league members to stop bringing the video up in meetings, it wasn’t even him…

#god fucking dammit those two are so fucking perfect together #honestly #annalise pushes everyone out of her life because she’s bad and she’s toxic and she does nothing but bring misery into people’s lives but she’s not #a bad person - or at least she doesnt want to be - so she does her best to save her people but ultimately she thinks that people are better #off without her #so she pushes and she hurts and she lashes out until there is no one else around her (both because she wants the best for them and the best is anything but her #and also because if she makes them leave now they cant choose to do so later when she’s attached and hopeful) #but Eve always comes back dont matter what annalise throws at her she always comes back #and annalise cant quite manage to be as hard or closed off as she is with the others #cant quite manage not to smile not to have fun not to be vulnerable #not to be /truthful/ #annalise fucking keating master of lies and manipulation the woman who does nothing without a motive #has never tried to lie or manipulate eve #she doesnt tell her everything of course but she’s more honest and open than she is with any other person in this show and i just want them #to run off and be happy together
