Question meme 2 for Roy Harper please!
How I feel about this character: I don’t want to call Roy my “dumpster fire child” but like that’s pretty accurate to how much I love Roy and how much I specifically love him because of how flawed he’s been, because of all the bumps in his journey, because of his struggles, and because he not only turned his life around at every corner but because he did so while also taking up responsibility for his daughter (when he’s allowed to have her, gdi dc)
All the people I ship romantically with this character: A whole lot. Dick Grayson, Donna Troy, Jade Nguyen (if we’re talking like Young Justice style Jade), Koriand’r, Jason Todd – I can ship Roy with almost anyone if you give me the opportunity lol
My non-romantic OTP for this character: If we’re not counting Lian, because Roy’s relationship with Lian p much trumps everything else… Definitely him and Dinah, I adore their relationship so much.
My unpopular opinion about this character: I really think, as far as character history and being a swarmy ladies man constantly having relationship flings and being way into his own sexuality, Roy was a much better fit for a book like Grayson than Dick was. And yes yes I know that was the “point” with Grayson but I think a fun spy thriller throwback with superheroes could be more sustained and that Roy would fit the bill more.
One thing I wish would happen / had happened with this character in canon: Liiiiiiaaaaaaaannnnnnnnn
my OTP: DickRoy, I love it
my crossover ship: It’d actually really be interesting to see Roy and Dani Moonstar interact, not necessarily in a shippy way, but just compare culture and upbringing and culture shock of the superhero world versus native religion. Just super interesting
a headcanon fact: His current dragon tattoo is recent, from when he fell off the wagon. He got it when he was sober, covering up his native tattoos because he felt unworthy of them at the time. He’s said in sessions with Lilith that he plans on earning them again.
