It's odd to think of Bruce naturally being Damian's most important relationship if you've read all the pre 52 stuff. I remember Bruce trying to be a a good dad to Damian at first. But then he just got scared/impatient over Damian's progress and just let him stay in the same Assassin world that abused him for what, 2 years? Bruce then "died" and Dick took Damian under his care even though neither liked each other. From there Dick protected and cared Damian in a way no one ever had. Not even-

2 Bruce. Dick gave Damian respect and the Robin mantle because he knew Damian needed it. None of this went unnoticed by Damian. Damian was willing to die for Dick w/o any hesitation and got very protective over him. Instead of jumping for joy at the chance of Bruce coming back, Damian got scared he’d lose Dick. By the time Bruce came back Damian, who gave up everything to be Robin, was willing to lose Robin if it meant he had to partner up with Bruce instead of Dick. I imagine it didn’t help-

3 when that Bruce clone had encountered Damian earlier had confirmed Bruce considered Damian’s entire existence his greatest mistake. I think even now deep down, Dick is the one person Damian trusts most to love him. It still feels like Damian has a need to prove himself to Bruce. I don’t mean cast Bruce’s influence in a negative light. But usually his flaws as a dad are brushed away by Tomasi’s work or he’s too inconsistent to be a good dad in other stuff. Dick is Damian’s most consistent bond.

Yep, in pre-n52 Bruce was a total disaster. I find it funny because if I think now about Batman and Son where Damian was introduced I’m all like “nope, not my Damian, not my Bruce, totally not canon”. Dick was already a better mentor for Damian in The Resurrection of Ra’s Al Ghul even with him saying that he didn’t like the kid at all - and that’s saying something.

Anyway I think one of the fundamental differences between Dick&Damian’s dynamic and Bruce&Damian’s one is that while with Bruce it’s always been “my cave, my rules”, Dick and Damian both start anew and they have to learn together how to be Batman&Robin. Because yeah, Damian never had a Batman before, but Dick also never had a Robin, so it’s interesting to see them trying to understand how to make it work. To me it’s inevitable for their bond to be a lot more solid, because it’s not based on an archaic concept of blood and heritage, but on basic trust and acceptance and love, all of which has to be both given and earned.

I still love Tomasi work because despite not liking the premises a lot of his writing has really resounded with me, but yeah, in the end it’s not the same thing.

Reducing Territorial Aggression

Summary: Damian’s a possessive snot.  It shouldn’t be cute, but it kinda is.  Tim tries to train it out of him though.  Part three of the Courtship AU.  Parts 1 and 2 come before. 

It’s all Tim’s fault.

He gets that.  He should have predicted this sort of outcome. It’s a personal failure for him as a tactician and mission leader. 

“I’m so sorry, Kon.” He says to Kon who just gives his little accepting smile that squeezes Tim tight. No wait.  That’s just Damian’s arm around his waist. 

“It’s okay, Tim. Really.” 

“No, it’s not.  I got distracted and forgot our plans like a jerk.” He grips the doorframe to pull himself forward a precious inch.  “Let me make it up to you, if you want we can go out now for pizza or something.”

“That is very unlikely, Timothy.” The inch Tim so rightfully earned shrinks into a centimeter as Damian tugs him back.  The brat is only fifteen, “Sixteen next month Habibi,” but the height distance between them has reversed quickly.  Already Damian can rest his chin comfortably on Tim’s shoulder, and does so now just to stick out his tongue to the Super outside.

Damian Wayne is conflicted, which doesn’t happen very often. What should he do?
I am an assassin, he reminds himself. A very mature, serious assassin who should behave accordingly. But then he peeks through the door again, and really, it would be a shame to waste this opportunity.
Drake is asleep in one of Father’s armchairs. He looks like he dozed off halfway through a yawn— he’s sideways with his head on one armrest and his legs on the other. One knee up, one draped across. His hand is resting in a mound of papers strewn across the floor.
“Come on,” Todd whispers. “You know you want to.”
Okay, screw it. He’s not that mature.
Anyway, people are always telling him to act his age. Damian slips inside the door and approaches Drake on tiptoe, stopping in front of him. Todd gives him a thumbs up from the hallway— he’s got his phone out, ready to record. Here goes.
Damian nudges Drake’s leg off the armrest and ducks behind the chair.
You would think that would wake him up, but it doesn’t. Drake’s hanging half-off his seat, but he’s still asleep. He mutters something about clones.
Damian glances back at Todd, who shrugs and motions him forward. Okay, round two.
He stands up carefully, shoves Drake’s remaining knee towards the edge, and sprints for the door.
Drake topples out of his chair with a thump. “What the—?” He blinks confusedly at the carpet, squinting at it like it just betrayed his trust. He doesn’t see his brothers peering around the doorframe, or Todd’s phone, which he left propped against the wall.
Drake just scrapes his papers into a pillow and curls up on the floor. Ten seconds later, he’s asleep again, napping in his pile of case notes.

For safety-dancer (hello again!) who requested sleeping Tim

Honestly tho if injustice evil batman isnt Jason, who else do you suppose it could be? Any suggestions? I just wonder if they are laying the its totally Jason hints so thick that they are trying to pull the rug from everyones feet and reveal it as a totally different character.

I honestly have no idea. I find it very difficult to believe it can be anyone other than Jason at this point based on all the evidence we’ve seen so far. Not just in the comic, but in some of Jason’s lines in the actual Injustice 2 game too (e.g ”Ra’s al Ghul saved my life.” when we’ve seen this new gun-toting Batman working with Ra’s). If they were to pull a bait-and-switch at this point, they would be risking upsetting their entire fanbase, and I have to believe DC is smarter than that.

The only other option I did consider early on was that he might be a Heretic-type clone of Damian, but since Talia and Athanasia freed Damian from the prison he was being held at with Superman, and he’s now working with them, I doubt that’s the case.
