Tim Drake Birthday Headcanons

- Tim totally forgot about his birthday (as usual) until Ives texted him during work
- None of his family said anything so he assumed they all forgot about it and treated it like any other day
- It was mentioned a bit on patrol but that was about it
- He was fine about nobody caring, though,considering how his parents forgot nearly every year on account of their busy schedules. He was almost used to it by now
- But the second he got home from patrol he walked into the Batcave to find everyone jumping out and screaming ‘surprise’ at him, causing him to stumble backwards, trip on his cape, and fall over
- Everyone was there like Bruce, Selina, Alfred, Dick, Barbara, Jason, Cass, Steph, Damian, Kon, Bart, Gar, and Cassie
- Alfred had made a huge cake for everybody
- Tim got a lot of prank gifts like a step ladder from Jason, a Red Robin restaurant t-shirt from Bart, and a year supply of coffee grounds from Cassie
- Most of his gifts were really thoughtful though like the new laptop from Dick and Babs, the gadgets from Bruce, the kitten from Selina, the Starbucks gift card from the demon spawn and the CDs from Cass
- Steph thoroughly embarrassed him with the hoodie that said “Property of Stephanie Brown” in big letters on the back
- His favorite was Kon’s present, which was a skateboard that he fitted with rockets and a bunch of cool designs on the back
- There were several arguments regarding his age, as half could have sworn he had turned 17 last year (and maybe the year before that)
- After the party Bruce and each of his siblings forced him to go to sleep, saying that he should at least get to rest on his birthday, though he protested profusely
- All in all, he loved the whole thing because this time nobody
forgot
