Hot Coffee - Dick Grayson x Reader

Dick Grayson x Reader: You’re a girl that Dick’s just met and the sparks fly immediately.  Unfortunately for you the villains of Gotham are set on you never going on your first date and Dick stands you up. He begs you for another chance, claiming that he had a work emergency and you give him the benefit of the doubt and reschedule your date. Fool me once …

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: Girl in a rush to get to work stops for some mandatory morning coffee, girl literally runs into a beautiful, dark haired, suave boy, spilling her coffee all over him. Girl is mortified and swears to pay for everything, his laundry bill, the spilled coffee, everything. Boy brushes off girl’s apology but asks instead for the girl’s number … and a date. Girl agrees because boy is ridiculously hot and charming despite being covered in coffee.

Sounds corny, right? Perhaps a little too good to be true?

You bet your god damn ass.

It was this classic cheese-ball rom com situation that led you to the situation you are in now. Alone at a table for two, almost an hour after your date was supposed to be there. With every passing minute you grew mortified and your cheeks burned bright with embarrassment. You had never been stood up before and you were sure that you never wanted to feel this way again. At the peak of your embarrassment you stood up and left the restaurant, making sure to tip your waitress generously for your lack of business. She gave you a look of pity as you left.  

You made sure to stop and get a pint of gelato at the closest store on your way home. This was definitely a whole-pint-with-a-side-of-Netflix kind of night. When you got home you kicked off your sexy heels, put up your hair into a messy bun and changed into your raggiest sweatpants and tank top.

A real catch’ You thought about yourself as you sat cross legged on your couch with a giant spoonful of gelato in your mouth.

Happy New Year at last! Say Chevrolet has relocated to an awesome new studio-loft in the Fort Lauderdale arts district. To commemorate, lets look back exactly fifty-years to January 14, 1966 and this full-scale General Motors Design Center rendering indicative of the upcoming 1967 Astro I concept car. And what could be more fun than to see the 1963 through 1966 front and rear Impala studies above?

Sindh, Pakistan: Kot Diji Fort, Khairpur District.

Kot Diji Fort, formally known as Fort Ahmadabad, dominates the town of Kot Diji in Khairpur District about 25 miles east of the Indus River. The fort was built between 1785 to 1795 by Mir Sohrab Khan Talpur.

The fort was considered invincible and served as the residence of the Emirs (Prince) of Khairpur in times of peace. It is, therefore, the ancestral home of royal house. Throughout its whole history, however, Fort Kot Diji was never attacked.
