I love how Jon repeats what Damian said to him in the second panel. Even though he bickers with him and they fight a lot, Jon does listen to what Damian says and takes his words to heart. I love that about their relationship. They act like they don’t get along but in the end, there is this kind of grudging respect between the two of them. It’s great and I honestly can’t wait for them to become real friends.
Dick Grayson is the kind of person that would, when someone was blocking the door, blow out his air and squeeze past them, probably saying "queEEEZE" like he just took a swig of helium.
I’m not kidding when I say I laughed out loud just imaging Dick awkwardly side shuffling past one of his family members while sucking in his stomach saying “exsQUEEEEEEze me” and then he just carries on with his normal day to day life. He’s just THAT extra.
Bruce and Alfred are completely immune to it. Alfred just kind of steps aside and let’s Dick so his thing, mildly amused, but Bruce just kind of pretends it’s not happening. Carries on disassociating. They’ve dealt with Dick for too long to give a crap about the shit Dick does on a daily basis. Bruce has five kids and all of them have their quirks.
It drives Jason completely insane. The more time that Jason spends around the manor, the more it happens, and the more pissed Jason gets. Dick finds it funny and he’s pledged to never stop.
It doesn’t really happen to Cass, and Tim’s usually too sleep-deprived to do anything about it. But Damian HATES it. I mean, it probably happened so many times during Dick’s and Damian’s partnership that Damian learned to live with it, but he grew up believing that you asked someone to move or you MAKE them move. And Dick just kind of slides on by. It infuriates Damian.
Oh man, I love this. This is my new favorite headcanon. Thank you, anon.
(Warning: I may have rambled while writing this um BUT HEY I REALLY LOVE THIS IDEA)
I think they’d probably attack each other at first and by that I mean Damian doesn’t trust him and attacks him
and he’s like “what” and melts into the shadows and Damian just… “wHAT”
and Nico actually had shadow travelled behind him and is like “who are you” and grabs him by his hood and Damian’s NOT HAPPY now and gets all mad “let go of me you fool! I’m Robin!” “You’re who now?” Cuz Nico likes mythomagic and raising the dead okay he doesn’t care for superheroes much and he can name like one and that’s Wonder Woman bc ya know, she’s an amazon and he’s a demigod and all and so he has no idea who this “Robin” kid is So Damian’s mad and Nico’s just confused at why this kid- who, granted, is wearing a more stealthy uniform now but still (and did he really need a hood on it Damian is so extra)- is dressed like a traffic light and calling himself a bird so Damian breaks his grip and demands to know what a metahuman is doing in Gotham, since it’s sort of a no meta zone (not counting poison ivy and all those other powered villains Batman has I really don’t get that) and Nico has literally zero idea of what he’s talking about so he just pushes Damian down and walks away and is about to shadow travel when Damian jumps on him probably to take him down because Nico PUSHED HIM AND HE WILL NOT TAKE THAT LIGHTLY and they probably end up in like, China or something because Nico was distracted and it’s kind of a Mess because I bet you he’d leave Damian there and shadow travel back to camp for like fifteen minutes until Will finds out that he left the kid and China and that “NICO YOU HAVE TO BRING HIM BACK TO GOTHAM OH MY GOD YOU CAN’T JUST LEAVE KIDS ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE WORLD”
My current favorite Damian headcanon is the idea of puberty hitting his kid like a truck.
In the span of a couple weeks, his voice changes and he has a massive growth spurt (both up and out). He goes from being such a little kid to suddenly BAM he’s tall and wide and his voice is almost on par with Batman’s and everyone’s a little shocked over it.
(Especially Jim Gordon, since for a while he isn’t 100% sure if this is the same Robin as before or a new one.)
Damian is the only one not visibly startled. But he has a hard time for a while, getting used to his new height and how long his legs and arms are now.
He kicks a lot of furniture, stumbles over his own feet, and hits his head. Plus, he’s pretty achy from the sudden growth.
But it’s worth it to see Tim’s face when Dami’s suddenly taller than him.
ya’aburnee: ‘you bury me’; a declaration of one’s hope that they’ll die before another person because of how difficult it would be to live without them.
A/N: Idk if you expected this to be angsty, but I can’t do that, no angst here 😅😅 ALSO!!! I’m sorry this is so short, I’ve been doing some required reading (which S U C K S btw) The reader and Damian are both 17!
Warnings: ehhhhhh, idk, kinda oc reader? (idk i kinda based the reader off of myself)
The library at Gotham Academy always smelled like old books, it was comforting as you sat next to a pile of dictionaries, looking up various words and taking notes. Your lovely english teacher decided that instead of practicing for the upcoming standardized test, it would be fun to look up meanings of ‘words you don’t hear everyday’. You, however could care less about words such as wanderlust (the strong desire to travel and or wander) and pluviophile (a lover of rain). Still, being the “perfect” student you were, you continued to try and find these words.
“Ya’aburnee. What in the fuc-” You lifted your head to hear a voice cut off your becomingly vulgar sentence.
“Ya'aburnee, a declaration of one’s hope that they’ll die before another person because of how difficult it would be to live without them.” Damian sat down next to you, apple in hand.
“Question. How in the ever loving fuc-” You were cut off for the second time today.
“TT. Language. It’s not that hard beloved, I have the same assignment as you, are you just now working on it? You do know it’s due next period.” You rolled your eyes, glaring at the green eyed boy in front of you.
“Yeah yeah, I know, but I love procrastinating, you should know this by now. Did you know that some of my best works were made by me procrastinating?” You said, your hand supporting your face as you leaned on the table.
“You need to form better habits, beloved. Doing things last minute won’t always work to your advantage.”
“Orrrrrr, I could jump from the top of the school and skip English entirely. Cause that sounds like the better option.” You laughed, turning back to finish the last couple of words on the worksheet.
“I strongly disagree with that statement. The main reason being ya’aburnee.” Damian turned you back towards him.
“Ya’aburnee? What does that have to do with anything Dami?” You tilted your head in confusion.
“I hope that I’ll die first because I can’t imagine living in a world without you. We just went over the definition beloved.”
You crossed your arms, “Well that’s not fair to me because I can’t live in a world without you either. How about instead we die at the exact same time, so that way neither of us has to live in a world without the other.” Damian nodded his head just as the school bell rang, signaling the end of lunch.
Damian offered his hand as you both stood up, “Ya’aburnee?”
You took his hand as you two walked to English, “Ya’aburnee.”
