drake's ring

Wayne Family movie night

- Happens before patrol. It is Bruce way of getting the family to spend a bit more time together.

-Alfred reminded everyone that bleed does not go on the sofa. It was his way of saying no killing your siblings.

- Cass invited Harper and Stephanie over.

- Dick had Barbara come as well.

- Kate said she would come later in the night. She is wanting to meet the rest of the family.

- Duke has never had the joy or horror of a Wayne family movie night.

- It takes an hour just to find a movie to watch. Turns out everyone gets very defensive about their choices.

- Jason got shot down at for any zombie movie.

- Duke is always trying to convince the family to watch Lord of the Rings. He is offended any time someone says it is a movie of people walking.

- Action movies never work since everyone corrects the fighting.

- They settle for Zorro if no one can pick something.

- Lots of popcorn. Half gets eaten, the rest lands on each other or in the couch.

- Pillows get thrown, food gets thrown, somehow Damian got thrown. It may have been due to his mouth.

- Cass, Harper, and Stephanie take the floor. Tim is near them on the ground away from Damian. Duke on the ground but gets to lean against the couch, prime spot for food.

- Alfred has his own chair where he can watch everyone but be out of the way of flying items.

- Barbara is on the edge of the couch with Dick next to her. Damian claimed the other side near Dick right away. Bruce is on the side of Damian on the other end of the couch.

- Jason takes the only empty chair but later moves closer to the family. Kate takes his chair when she sneaks in.

- Tim and Bruce are the type to quote lines right before it happens. This is when the throwing pillows happen. Usually at Tim.

- Barbara is the one to say that can’t happen in real life. She is also making fun of Dick for hogging all the popcorn.

thoughts on Aaron bc i think he has a lot of potential as a character also im emo

  • he hates andrew
  • he hates that he took away the chance to reconcile with tilda
  • he hates he never got to confront her like he dreamed of doing
  • he hates that he couldnt save himself
  • he hates that andrew so often turns to violence. it takes him back to days he wants to forget.
  • he doesn’t hate andrew. he’s just so angry. all the time. andrew changed his life so he’s the easiest to hate
    • its complicated, though, because half of the hate is for himself. because he wasn’t there. he doesn’t understand. he feels like andrew is light years away, at times. 
  • sometimes he catches himself thinking of Tilda again. these are the worst days, when he tries to rationalize what she did to him. he can’t help it. she was his mother.
  • he knows his remarks hurt nicky and remind him of the unwelcoming home he grew up in
  • he doesn’t mean it. he only means to hurt nicky enough to push him away. family has been a source of pain for him as long as he can remember.
  • nicky is just so bright and persistent and he can’t stand it. he feels hollow and broken and he wants nicky to just leave him be, he wants his entire family to disappear and leave him be, but he made a deal. 
  • he loves katelyn because it seems like none of his impurity can touch her
    • she smiles and he feels he can too, and it won’t feel fake this time
    • when she holds his hand he doesnt see scars on his knuckles or the racquet that killed drake, he sees the ring he wants to give her on graduation
  • he wants to be a doctor because he spent so much time patching himself up, covering up bruises from home by telling people that exy is just a rough sport
  • he knows the signs of hiding hurt and he wants to help people so they don’t have to do that
    • him and katelyn’s first child is adopted. a little girl came in with a broken arm and fear in her eyes and a father who didnt let her speak.
    • aaron thought he knew anger before, but that day? he felt like he would gladly kill a man. again. 
    • that little girl smiles so much now and looks at aaron like he hung the moon and stars. he makes blueberry pancakes for her every saturday.
  • he works in the ER/trauma ward as a surgeon. he deals with some of the worst injuries but he loves what he does because he gives people another chance
  • he volunteers in the attached rehab center. he attends addicts anonymous meetings there as a guest speaker. 
    • there’s a boy there who mustve been the same age aaron was when he started, the lonely dead look in his eyes haunted aaron after the first meeting he saw him in
    • he’s in recovery and babysits aaron’s daughter now and loves her like a little sister
  • at nicky’s wedding he doesn’t make a speech, no huge fancy present. he walks up to nicky, he says “i’m sorry, and i’m glad you’re happy”
    • nicky cries
    • its the first time erik smiles at him
  • he doesnt give andrew presents, but he knows the cats birthdays and sends really obnoxious toys for them
  • him and katelyn have two boys with bright blond hair. they smile so much, and them with their daughter is always his phone background.
    • they go on play dates with matt and dan’s kids. their daughters are connected at the hip (aaron’s daughter gets the guts to ask her out in high school. they’re married when they graduate college).
  • the boy from the AA meetings comes over for holidays, is the kids honorary big brother, and goes to palmetto state university not to be a fox, but just to get his degree.
  • aaron and katelyn grow old together
  • he never  bothered hoping for any of this. he thought he deserved every hit his mother dished out, everything life threw it at him. but he grew up, he fell in love, he found a family in the foxes and made one of his own soon after.
