okay but that trope of “superhero runs out on their date to go and save the world but their date doesn’t know the reason” stresses me tf out?? like i understand why the heroes do it but ffs those poor dates??? they’re probably left wondering what they did wrong i’m??? it actually makes me feel so bad for them like god this wasn’t the comic’s intention why am i so sensitive
You: Bruce Wayne dresses as a bat to scare and intimidate people
Me, an intellectual: nothing has been and nothing never will be as terrifying as Discowing. Criminals saw him and shook in fear. Oh no! That color combination! The feathers! He says he’ll call the police on them but who will call the Fashion Police on him???
Jaye comes back to Gotham to fuck some stuff up. That’s the plan.
And she’s got an easy way into the upper echelons: her former, very noble family that didn’t give enough of a shit to keep her alive. Jaye still remembers how Wayne House runs, more than well enough to get a job.
There’s no danger of being found out, not until the perfect moment when she wants them to know. She’s the Red Knight now, an extra foot and a half of height and none of those long, fairy tale curls that Alfred used to comb for her. She’s got anger and scars and a sword in her hand longer than Bruce’s arm. Most importantly – she’s not awkwardly forcing herself into the spitting image of the Kingdom’s favorite beauty. Not anymore.
Then she finds out which job her alter ego has landed with the Wayne family.
Bodyguard. To the Lady Richelle. Who hasn’t changed one fucking bit.
Fuck. Jaye would have appreciated a little grief on her pseudo-sister’s part, even if it was just for fucking show. A tear or two in public. Fuck. It doesn’t matter. This doesn’t change anything. And the next time Richelle climbs a gargoyle, maybe Jaye will push her off.
Do you guys realize that they are gonna have such an issue with the amount of robins and/or batgirls one day, that it’s probably going to be cannon that Jason and Dick were Robin at the same time? Or Damian and Tim? Just so Bruce can stay under the age of 40?
One day Damian is gonna be like 19 and DC is gonna swear to us up and down that Bruce hasn’t even hit over the age of 30. All of us are looking at the rest of the family like “bro how are none of them aging?!” And it’s like “oh Tim is 20 though, he can almost drink "lol” and “Dick is in his mid 20’s oh no! Getting too old!!” And “But Jason is just 23” and “Bruce might be 28….and a half”
Worst case scenario, they are gonna introduce another Robin that gets super popular, and everyone is so excited about this one, but unfortunately for this one to stick around they reaaaaaaally need to get rid of the least popular one at the current time after that new one, (Jason or Tim?? Idk) or change up the background of that one “unpopular” Robin so completely, so that that character can still be around…they just aren’t affiliated with the batfamily as much anymore. (Like saying Jason was trained by someone else, etc., who knows man)
Or even weirder, they are gonna be like “oh well Damian came around at the age of 5, that’s when Bruce-man found out about him, he was still a little jackass that he had to train him out of, along with being re-potty trained because lord knows that change affects kids man.
That last one is a stretch, but I swear, even now at 4-6 robins DC is pushing it, and Batman is pushing it.
