listen to me, all the grown up batkids are dating people who either have experience with kids (little siblings, kids, etc) or common sense right. And Damian hates it. It’s like he’s being double patronized and babied. They all call him kiddo, try to set “playdates” with other kids (“Harper your kid is five, and clone, I already know Jon you complete imbecile”), they snitch on his siblings if they see him pulling Stunts™ etc.
And then there’s Kyle.
Dick, walking into the batcave: hey Kyle, thanks for helping train Dami while I wa-DAMIAN WHAT THE HELL DID WE SAY ABOUT SWORDS WHAT ARE YOU DOING-
Damian: Rayner is making himself useful and projecting some dinosaurs and ninjas to assist me with my sword training
Dick, turning to Kyle: KYLE IS DOING WHAT?
Kyle: DAMIAN TOLD ME YOU TWO DO THIS ALL THE TIME???? HOW WAS I SUPPOSED TO KNOW IT’S AGAINST THE RULES??
Dick: HOW WOULD WE DO THIS ALL THE TIME IF I DON’T HAVE A RING KYLE!!
Kyle: WELL WHY WOULDN’T YOU LET HIM TRAIN WITH SWORDS, HE ALREADY GOES OUT AS ROBIN EVERY NIGHT!! I SAW HIM TAKING DOWN TEN MEN LAST NIGHT!!!
Dick: THAT’S NOT THE POINT
Damian: to be fair with Rayner, Todd and I train with swords all the time,
Dick: JASON DOES WHAT
