@time-to-hit-the-clouds personally I think Bruce noticed that 13-year-old Dick had noticed Barbara and was like “hah AS IF” and “you’re waaaay too young, chum”
“Bruce shut up I don’t know what you’re even talking about”
[cue Bruce’s “dad face”] 😏
And it’s kind of true, Dick know Babs is pretty but he doesn’t really think about it too much. Bruce is safe.
Dick turns 18.
He notices Barbara. NOTICES notices.
Barbara notices him noticing her.
And doesn’t mind.
[cue flirting] 😘🤗
And DAMNIT, why did they have to pull this over on him now?? Bruce can’t hate Barbara! She’s been around way too long!!!
[cue Bruce’s brooding/sulking while Dick and Babs flirt in the background]
😑 … 😚😌
Bruce makes a vow. No more Batgirls.
He wasn’t banking on a Spoiler.
