On a frigid winter night, a man wearing two coats shuffles into a brightly lit brick restaurant in downtown Madrid. Staff greet him warmly; he’s been here many times. The maître d’ stamps his ID card, and the hungry man selects a table with a red tablecloth, under a big brass chandelier.

The man, Luis Gallardo, is homeless — and so are all the diners, every night, at the city’s Robin Hood restaurant. Its mission is to charge the rich and feed the poor. Paying customers at breakfast and lunch foot the bill for the restaurant to serve dinner to homeless people, free of charge.

It’s become Spain’s most sought-after lunch reservation. The restaurant has poached staff from luxury hotels. Celebrity chefs are lining up to cook once a week. For paying clients, the lunch is fully booked through the end of March.

The restaurant opened in early December, and is run by an 80-year-old Catholic priest, Ángel García Rodriguez, whom everyone knows simply as “Padre Ángel.”

“I know what you think of me. You think I’m just a doll. A doll that’s pink and light. A doll you can arrange anyway you like. You’re wrong. Very wrong.” - Gotham City Sirens

Living in Gotham

- School drills include how to deal with a fear gas attack and what to do if the any of the rouges attack.

- Most citizens could beat up thugs in other cities without a blink of the eye.

- The schools have programs in place if they feel a student is likely to turn to the criminal life.

- Instead of kids playing I spy game with different objects, they play I spy the bat.

- Local tabloids are half the Wayne family and half the different vigilantes that dot the roof tops.

- Collecting batarangs is a thing. Like there are so many hanging out on streets. Constant remembers to not let children have them.

- Gas mask are a common item in most households. You always need to be prepared.

- Apartment contracts having rules about no vigilant activity. 

- School closing due to hostage situations or chemical attack on the city. It’s like snow days and extra days are built in the calendar for it. 

- Nightwing is often voted best looking Gotham citizens every year. 

- Conspiracy online websites are a thing. Like who is batman, how do they afford it, and the most important question; who is single.  

  • Damian: Can I have another pet?
  • Bruce: No.
  • Alfred: No.
  • Dick: No.
  • Jason: No.
  • Tim: No.
  • Barbara: No.
  • Stephanie: No.
  • Cassandra: No.
  • Damian: But why? We have a Jason Todd, why can I have another animal?

What is it with hideously grotesque puppets?! The concept of a floppy, articulated humanoid dancing around on some strings or worn like a glove is kinda unsettling to begin with… why the hell would you also make them utterly revolting to look at?
