Commissioner Gordon always carries candy and breakfast bars; his coat pockets are deep, sometimes Cass can score 2 chocolate chip breakfast bars if she gives Gordon a hug. The second Robin liked lifesavers, and oddly enough that seems to be Red Hood’s kryptonite too; the third Robin, now Red Robin, prefers chocolate so Gordon hands over a Reese’s cup in thanks for intel on who robbed that bank on Monday. Red Robin eats it while mapping out his theory for Gordon to understand, mumbling around the peanut butter chocolatey goodness. The first Robin, now going by Nightwing, is rare to see these days but Gordon still carries gummy worms in case he shows up; Spoiler swings by, hyper as always, and Gordon has already dug out a pack of Skittles and three breakfast bars. The newest Robin, little devil that he is, can be placated with a a pack of Runts that he begrudgingly shares with whatever sibling he’s on good terms with that night; Batman doesnt accept anything.
There was a time where Gordon, young and unawares, didn’t carry candy and breakfast bars; not until one night a boy was brought into the precinct, in shock and alone and grieving, clutching a bloody suit jacket way too big to be his, and Gordon poured four dollars into the vending machine for a pack of poptarts and 3 different types of candy. Anything to offer comfort and make the boy feel less alone…
Batman may not accept anything, but whenever Gordon sees Bruce he’s always tempted to ask if he still likes jawbreakers.
Ok. Is a well known fact that Jim Gordon probably knows Bruce Wayne’s Batman, but he never says anything because A) he can’t prove it. B) he secretly likes Bruce.
For that reason, he also keeps away everyone who’s getting close.
“Hey, have you guys realized Bruce Wayne’s always out of town while Batman’s missing?
"The guy’s a business man, Carl. Stop being so paranoid”
“Hey, Bruce Wayne adopted a new kid around the same time the new robin came around.”
“Yes, ‘cause Robin is the only black haired twelve year old in Gotham, Frank. Use your head son!”
“Sir, have you ever realized Batman appeared in Gotham the same year Bruce Wayne mysteriously came back after years missing?”
“It was not the same year, Sara. Bruce Wayne came back in December and Batman only appeared the the end of January. Big difference.”
“God, Jim. That Nightwing kid looks a lot like your daughter’s boyfriend…”
“Is it my fault the girl inherited my good taste? Besides, they don’t look that much alike, Dick’s nose is bigger”
“Commissioner, I think I saw Bruce Wayne’s butler passing him a cape and cow under a table during yesterday’s gala…”
“Rich people are weird. Who am I to judge?”
