So here I am. A “hero”? A “villain”? I’m the guy who can do the things Batman can’t. Become someone that Batman won’t. Am I the man Bruce wanted me to become? Not even close. But someday soon he’ll realize… I’m exactly who he needs.
You know those mindfulness colouring books?
Roy found one called ‘The Sweary Colouring Book’ on his travels and couldn’t not buy it for Jason. Each page was a cuss of some description in the swirly elaborate designs.
Roy honestly only bought it as a gag gift, the book amused him.
Never in a million years did he think that Jason would actually take to it. He’d spend hours on a bad day sat on the couch colouring in the swear words. The tranquil aura around him was strange, the chilled expression on his face unnerving. Roy spent hours stood in the doorway staring in disbelief.
The young man had been raging at the world and now was completely calm.
Where was this colouring book when Jason decided to put eight heads in a duffle bag?
Jason’s phone rang on such a day and Roy eventually gave up waiting for his partner to notice it and answered for him.
'Yello? Jason’s phone?’
'Er hey Roy. It’s Dick. Where’s Jason?’
'Colouring in bullshit. He’s pretty focused maybe ring back later?’
’…. What? Jason is colouring in bullshit?’
'Yup that’s what I said’
He explained the book and mindfulness before hanging up on a very bemused Dick.
One by one over the next week, random members of the Batfamily joined Roy in the doorway staring at Jason in disbelief. Bruce actually forgot how to breath and Roy had to slap him on the back.
Tim merely frowned before nodding slightly and just disappearing back through the window he came through.
Then one day Roy wandered into the living room to find Jason on the couch with his colouring book and a cup of tea. The thing that had Roy staring now was Tim sat next to his brother, working his way through a Star Wars themed colouring book, a cup of coffee steaming next to Jason’s tea.
One gag gift and suddenly Roy was holding Art Therapy sessions for Robins. Sometimes Roy really didn’t understand how he got himself into these situations.
Just finished an amazing conversation with @rvdhood and @stephaniebrowm on Twitter about Latino Jason Todd. Can’t wait to write this article about the subject. They were both so articulate, informative, and passionate.
I also discussed with them that I’d love for any fans to send me fanart (or fan edits) of Latino Jason Todd (especially if they’re by a Latinx artist) for the article. I’d love to include, but I only include art I have permission by the artist in articles. If fans have any they want to send me please do!
This panel makes me wonder. How did Jason get that tire?!
I have some thoughts…
1. It’s the original tire he tried to steal and Bruce let him keep it 2. Jason asked Bruce for a tire and Bruce just gives him one 3. (My personal favorite) Jason decided “fuck it I’m stealing another tire”
So I was watching the Perfect guy movie and how do you think the batfam would react if their s/o had a stalker? Like, I'm pretty sure Jason and Damian (maybe Cas??) would just kill them but I can't really peg the others right and your hc are just amazing and descriptive and so I thought I'd ask you! Thanks! :)
yeah honestly i can just see all of them being. beyond pissed. the whole batfam is a tall order so i’m. just gonna do some of the Kids
barbara is. Incredibly Efficient in busting the stalker’s ass in a way that they can’t avoid jail time no matter how they try to wiggle out of it. she has computer records, deleted texts, pictures of her s/o that’d been wiped… all in a Neat Folder to hand off to local police (and if it’s gotham- directly to her dad, so it actually gets handled)
jason would be the Supreme Angriest out of all of them because his s/o is a person and he can’t stand the thought of someone violating his s/o’s privacy and forcing them to worry over their safety. i’m not saying he’d kill him outright (though honestly depending on whether or not the stalker did shit that really compromised his s/o’s safety and peace of mind he just might) but the stalker would not walk away without at least a few broken ribs and a busted face
okay but cass might actually beat the stalker to the point of death. like. out of all of them she Physically Reads her s/o and i can’t imagine how it’d look to her when her s/o curls in on themselves talking about their stalker?? cass is. a really efficient fighter but i can imagine her losing it when she thinks about how scared her s/o had been and how she. she could End It by knocking some sense into the person
duke goes straight to bruce. like. Immediately to bruce literally any gothamite knows the gcpd isn’t worth shit and if you want something done you go to batman and. while he would contact the robin crew he knows as kids they can’t do much legally (but it does make him n his s/o feel a little better knowing that one of em is always around to make sure the stalking doesn’t Escalate) and. bruce helps him compile evidence against his s/o’s stalker and find a cop that would arrest them and actually see that justice would b served
