So i woke up 2min ago and letteraly this thought made me really awake and sleep free so get this: batboys calling damian "demon baby/demon spawn/demon incarnate"as a joke™,Damian flipping out on them,they say "meh teenagers",but in truth dami always HATED that name not because as an insult,but because he thinks it's true!He IS the grandchild of the demon head! And saying that means one day they'll abandon him to his grandfather and be his vessel, like they agree that's his fate!! It ruined me XD
I could definitely see that nickname hurting Damian way more than he lets on, for that very fear.
And the bros (Jason and Tim) think he’s just being an annoying kid but then they’re fighting Ra’s and somehow that point is brought up and Jason and Tim are like ‘…no that’s….not…it at all….’ and probably feel hella bad about it.
But then, of course, they’d turn around and beat the ever living SHIT out of Ra’s for threatening a kid as such. For threatening THEIR kid as such.
They’ll leave it to Dick, though, to sit Damian down and explain that the nickname was just that, and that he should never feel like he has to be scared that they’ll let ANYONE hurt him, let alone his good for nothing gramps. That they’d protect him and love him just as much as they love each other. Damian probably only believes the sentiment from Dick.
