Dick Grayson is a safety net for everyone else in DC.
Allow me to explain:
So everyone knows how Dick’s parents died: Tony Zucco was a rude jerkface who sabotaged the wires for the Flying Graysons’ trapeze act, the ropes snapped, they fell to their deaths right in front of poor baby Dick’s teeny little eight year-old eyes, we all know the story. But the thing about this situation is that most acrobats would use a safety net in case they fell. The Flying Graysons, however, chose to do that particular act without a net in order to create more excitement. So they died because there was no one to catch them. Dick’s family died because they had no safety net.
Cut to a little over a decade later, and Dick is Nightwing. He’s been with Batman, he’s been a member of several teams, and he’s met so many other superheroes in the DC universe that practically everyone is a friend of Nightwing. He has helped nearly everybody at some point or other, so he’s known for lending a helping hand to anyone who asks. Out of all the many, many, many superheroes in the universe, Dick himself is known as the one any person can go to for help no matter what. There’s never any doubt when it comes to Dick. He will always and without question be there for anyone who needs him. He’s their rock.
In fact, Dick is probably one of the only characters besides a few prominent heroes like Batman and Superman who everyone can rely on. Everyone has their own reputations, whether it be a good or a bad one. Bruce’s is being dark and broody, but Dick’s is being trustworthy. Everyone can vouch for him. Dick can always be trusted, no matter what. It even says it right here:
And in this panel too, Superman tells Dick that he is the single person who in every place in the multiverse can never be corrupted:
See? Dick is one of the only guys whom every single hero knows he/she can trust and that this is something that will never change. Because Dick is good. Dick will never let anyone down or betray them, it’s just not in his DNA. If anyone is ever in need of help, then you can bet your little tush that Dick Grayson will answer the call, no matter what it costs him. He saves everyone who needs it and is willing to catch them when they fall. Like a safety net. Dick catches people. That is his legacy. He couldn’t save his parents from hitting the ground, but you can trust that he will bust his butt and try his hardest to ensure that from now on he will keep that from happening to anyone else.
And ever since the Flying Graysons fell, Dick kind of has a thing with falling. It’s a conquered fear, one of which he confronts every day as he soars above cities and saves those who can’t save themselves. But he can’t stand the thought of falling without a net to catch you, so subconsciously that is the role he fills. He has become a metaphor for DC’s safety net, as in he is the one character who everyone can trust to save them, whether they be civilians or other heroes. They can always trust that they can go to him for help when they need it, and Dick in turn will always be ready to save them. He is the one holding his arms out, ready to catch people when they fall and support them for as long as they need him to. He refuses to let anyone down. Dick is DC’s rock, the one column that will never topple over no matter how hard you try. He is a safety net, prepared to catch people when they fall and ready to help them to fly again. Dick’s parents had no safety net, so Dick is going to make sure no one else will have to be without one as long as he’s there. And that my friends, is my epiphany of the day.
My future partner better be ready because we are going to: skip in the park, roll around on grassy hills, talk about life in fields of flowers, enjoy late night conversations, and truly appreciate and inspire each other.
You'll be as bright as the sun and make the most difficult choices in your life soon. Chin up, spit the blood, and fight for your beliefs.
Maybe things seem pretty rough right now. Think about what you want for the long run, maybe it's not what you want now. Where are you in 10 years?
You're always so nervous and tedious about your work. You know what? If you're trying to impress something or someone to get what you want, maybe it's not for you. Because if you're not doing what you love to impress people, screw that. Do what you want.
Oh boy. You have no idea. You have such big dreams and so little time. Go with what you want and don't let anybody get in the way of it. You're really never late to anything. There's time, just a limited amount.
Summer down, maybe your dream when you were little won't work. Maybe it will, who knows? The thing is, don't live your life in solitude, find someone to adventure with and show your colors.
My dear, don't be afraid of society's rules, they're meant to be broken. Prove your point. Be an example. Break the glass.
You've been told what to do and how to do it for too long. Stop obeying and start pioneering your own future. Dream for yourself.
You think you have it all figured out don't you? Just know that life throws curveballs all the time. Be ready for anything darling.
Maybe you don't know. Maybe you know. You're in the dark yet you see light. I promise it will become clear for you one day when you probably least expect it.
You're ambitious but not supported. I'm sorry. Put yourself in a healthy group of people and environment and you'll grow as fast as time passes.
You can not see the future and there are things you won't be able to predict. Stop trying so hard and let go. You'll find your success elsewhere. Don't expect a pretty platter of success to be handed to you.
You fall but you need to get back up. Don't loose sight of what's important to you and your journey. You've grown so much in this period of time. Keep it up and success will be great.
I’m in love with the Fond Smiles™ as much as the rest of you but I’d also like to mention that Lance didn’t turn in surprise when the team looked at him to comfort Keith. You know, this part:
Instead of the usual trope where the character looks shocked and sometimes even goes “ME?!?!” they didn’t do that. They didn’t have Lance look at the team at all.
It was almost as if he was completely unaware they were looking at him. Lance was only focused on Keith and obviously attempting to think of what to say to cheer him up without anyone pushing him forward. The best part? The entire team knew he would. They weren’t turning to him because they didn’t want to comfort Keith but instead because they knew Lance knew what to say to Keith to cheer him up and let him know they all support him.
au where isak is a grumpy movie blogger who follows up-and-coming actor even on social media. while even is on a ski trip isak writes a harsh critique on even’s abysmal performance in his latest movie, ending it with ‘stick to snowboarding’ to which even replies with ‘suck my board bitch’ and that’s how an online feud of epic proportions starts in which both get obsessed and come up with more and more colourful comebacks as time goes on until they eventually meet in person and feel the instant chemistry
