this fandom loves to sexualize this boy in dance aus and i’m?? so confused lol. I feel like he would be more into doing cool dangerous stunts and overall focus on having fun while dancing but
the fact that lance was clearly upset by the fact that keith went with shiro to the blade of marmora, yet considers the fact that keith flew into a black hole one of his “cool stunts” makes my heart physically ache
something cute to think about: tim totally hero-worshipped dick. when he was taking photos of batman and robin for research, he'd find a few pictures of dick doing a particularly cool acrobatic stunt or taking out an especially bad villain and keep it for himself. he still has those pictures and dick just adores how cute and nerdy his little brother is, especially since the "he's so cool i want to be just like him" mentality is still strong in tim's mind.
This is so cute! 💗
And I agree with this completely. If someone asked Tim who he most aspires to be, Dick is the first and only answer that comes to mind, without even thinking about it. Dick has forever been Tim’s idol. When Tim was just a kid who liked watching Robin leap across buildings overhead and defending the city, when Nightwing struck out on his own and became an independent hero in Bludhaven, when Dick legally became his big brother and devoted himself to that role and making sure Tim was always safe and loved unconditionally. Dick has been one of the few constants in Tim’s life, and this is only one of the many reasons why he looks up to him so much. He sees Dick as an aspiration of who he wants to be in life.
When Dick found out about all this he was honored to be a role model for Tim. Tim’s such an amazing kid on his own, so knowing that he admires him so much means the world to him. He still likes to tease him about the photos though, because his little bro is just such a cute dork.
