PS.: Click for better quality bc tumblr decided to fuck me up.
hey, 😄! so i saw your tags in the tim's a sexist post and i just wanna ask what do you mean about it? like, what i got is bad characterisation =/= character flaws, right? so how can y'all say that tim is just a mere victim of bad writing, when it's been consistent that he's been a sexist, misogynist fuck boy for a span of a decade? and like okay, we can chalk that up as bad characterisation, but like what are tim's character flaws then?
Hey there friend! (Love your writing by the way… just had to get that out of the way, haha.)
For those who need context on the sexist!tim meta post, here’s the post, and here’re my tags:
So I would agree with you that Tim has been a sexist, misogynistic fuck boy for the span of a decade, even longer… but I would argue that it’s more because he’s been written by sexist, misogynistic fuck boys who think “hur-dee-dur this will be sexist and funny hahahhaha” and project it on to Tim’s character.
Portraying misogyny and sexism in comics is good because these are real problems and men soak these things up from birth till they become habits and have to unlearn them throughout life… but writing characters as being misogynistic and sexist and NOT pointing out/addressing/making it obvious that it is wrong and having the characters continue to make these little remarks and stupid, antiquated “she’s just a girl” “leave this to the pros (aka men)” “dayum girl do you really eat this much?” comments that are meant to be read as “laughable and funny”??
I’m sorry, that’s the writers being little shitheads, not the characters.
As for flaws? I think Tim has many. I don’t know why you put “y’all” in the ask because this is really me just speaking for myself and my own interpretation of Tim’s character… but not all people who like Tim Drake think he’s a “perfect little cherub who can never do any wrong and is fragile and broken and only ever does things out of love! uwu~”
I would say that one of Tim’s flaws is that he can switch between “I’m a genius and everyone else is stupid” and “I’m worthless I should just crawl into a hole and die” in .05 seconds. He struggles with finding that balance where he can be confident in his own intelligence but also understand that he’s still human and makes mistakes and, yes, sometimes other people do know better/have more wisdom than he does.
When Tim is in this “god-mode” in his mind, he can be a real shit and say mean, stupid things because “he knows so much better than you”… and I think that some misogyny could definitely come into play here. Again, to show this is good characterisation and leaves room for development.
But to simply show him as being a misogynistic and sexist asshole for the sake of it and never changing after EVERYTHING he’s been through and the number of times these amazing kickass girls have saved his butt? That’s just bad writing. We saw this character development with Damian, who grew from a misogynistic little prick into someone who actually respects women and treats them like equals… so I argue that someone dropped the ball with Tim.
Anyways… that’s just my opinion/thoughts! :) If you or anyone else would like to add/comment I’d love to keep up the discussion!
was dating Steve when she started falling for Bucky. After her heart
was broken, she decided to leave from both man and now after two years
she is coming back.
As you stepped into the building with Nat, Peter, and Clint the first person you saw was Sam. He had his back turned to you as he was leaning on the table where some girl sat. ˝Sam! ˝ You pretend that you were mad walking quickly to him. ˝Y/N? What are y.. ˝ Before he could finish you slap him. He was confused for a second, but he joined you in your little game. ˝Baby, I’m so sorry. ˝ He took your hands in his giving you his best puppy eyes. ˝Alright, but I don’t want you to go back to this girl, whenever I’m not in the mood to play with you.˝ ˝You guys are sick. ˝Peter walked past you. Sam laughed and pulled you in a hug.

How did Catrina find out about the scars on Xibalba's back? Did he tell her about it first, and he decided to show it to her when there was more trust between them? Or did Catrina see the scars by accident? (I mean, something like... she caught Xibalba using a tank top, and saw his burned shoulder).
HI YES FIRST OF ALL THANK YOU FOr THE INTEREST I MY WEIRD SELF-INDULGENT AU <3 <3 <3 alright, next up: I’ve thought about this but I can’t quite decide yet. There’s two possible scenarios in my head for it.
1- This one is motly supported in my belief that sometimes the biggest stuff happens in the most random and stupd ways ever. Before they get together, when they’re still kinda dancing around each other, she shows up into his house early for a reason or other and Xibalba answers the door in his boxers and a tanktop -’cause he’s a slob- and he’s so sleepy that for a moment he doesn’t even remember to cover himself. Except Catrina can’t help but react and he remembers and hurriedly goes to change and is super-self conscious about it. She tries to talk the topic out but he’s reluctant and it ends on an argument. A while passes with them trying to pretend nothing happened; Catrina feels bad about having pressed him but at the same time she’s too proud to actually take the step and apologize for it and Xibalba reacts badly to the embarrasment he feels whenever he sees her and remembers that she knows, which in turn irritates her, so they constantly end up arguing. It’s until Catrina finally bends and admits she shouldn’t have demanded an answer he clearly wasn’t ready to give that they finally start communicating about it and Xibalba starts telling her what happened in parts. He tells her everything eventually, as they grow closer, but it takes time and the final puzzle piece comes somewhere shortly before Catrina reveals to him that he’s going to be a dad, well into their relationship.
2- I kinda like this one better but I have some issues with the timing. During the first of Tres Amigos cases, he and Catrina were with the kids. Joaquín has to reveal them all that he posesses the gift to see ghosts, after years of not saying a thing about it for fear of being ridiculed, mocked or thought crazy, particularly by his dad. It’s a terribly vulnerable and scary moment for him, and while his friends reassure him, he has a lingering fear that reaches until they finish the case. It’s then that Xibalba, in front of all of them, removes his jacket and unbuttons his shirt and reveals the scars. At the time he only mentions he got them on his final mission as a pilot and that he almost died that day, but he leaves out all the details. It’s he’s way of saying ‘We’ve all got messed-up stuff going on, kid, you’re not alone with that’ and Joaquín never forgets it. Catrina doesn’t either, and that sliver of goodness she saw through the gesture is what sparks her interest in him.
Like I said, I still haven’t decided, but out of the possibly dozens of ideas I have for the scenario, these are the top two.
Could you pls write the Batfam putting up the Christmas tree decorations and arguing (maybe some actual fighting) over which color scheme to set up with, mostly based on their suit color schemes. Reader tries to help with cookies and hot chocolate.
“I think a blue would match the lights and the tinsel though.” Dick said thoughtfully “It would be much more appealling.”
“Why are we dismissing Eggplant so quickly?” Stephanie huffed while sorting out the different colours into organised piles.
“Because we’re going green.” Damian yawned “Can we just hurry this up?”
“I like the idea of red.” Tim mused quietly
“Then we’re definitely not doing it.” Damian snapped and glared at him.
“Green decorations are stupid.” Tim retorted
“You’re stupd!” Damian growled at him as he shot up in his seat ready to lunge.
You glanced at everyone in the room, as tensions were heating up. Fortunately the only one who seemed unaffected by this was Cass who was quietly reading.
Bruce sighed as he held his forehead in his hand “I’m not telling you to plan the tree, i asked for you to decorate it using our decorations.”
“Father, pardon me but i expect you to show more concern, for i am your legacy.” Damian said quickly, surprising him.
“Okay, time for cookies!” you shoouted out excitedly before the others could proceed with their fight and quickly ushered them into the kitchen.
If there were maps that showed you the ways to the batfamilies hearts, baking was definitely just one of the many ways and you had somehow restored peace quickly to the household. Holding onto their hot chocolates they finally went back into the main room, ready to work together as a team.
However they all stopped at the sight of Cassandra hanging up the final decoration. Black baubles, yellow tinsel were placed neatly on the tree with a black bat topping the tree.
“Father!” Damian yelled out and turned to him abrupbtly “I like it.” Bruce grinned “Although i was thinking something more family orientated for the gala but we’ll have to get another tree.”
“IT WILL BE GREEN!”
“Green wont even be seen!” Tim cried out in frustration.
