there are some who call me tim

Batfamily at some point of their lives

-Forget a kid in the school.
“Hey it feels calm today, ‘da fuck where’s Damian?”

-Alfred putting drugs on Tim’s coffe so he could sleep for a while.

-“He’s Jason my broth… my.
butler” -Damian Wayne

-Hugs at midnight from little and scared Damian.

-“Damian what the hell, why did you bring another pet?”

-“I died once and you didn’t average me, so at least you.can…” Jason 24/7.

- Jason would put eyeshadow under his eyes in Halloween and would say “My Tim Drake’s cosplay, where’s my coffee?”

-Make fun of their old costumes.

-Be the smartest kids in the class.

-“Who was first, the chicken or the egg?” Dick Grayson at some point of the night.

-Damian would close all the windows so Jason would use the door, or better, he would not enter.

-Bruce would be proud to call them his sons.

-Besides all the jokes, they will support each others, no matter what.

I really want Damian to one day find out the lengths Tim was willing to go to avoid being adopted by Bruce and him just looking at Bruce with pity and then in some weird twisted logic try to incorporate Tim even further into the family

“Father wanted to adopt you, Drake,” Damian shouted incredulously during one of their many fights, “he was allowing you to enter into his family and you turned him down! Modified your father’s will and made up an imaginary uncle! How can you be so ungrateful!”

“Maybe I just didn’t want to be brought into a family out of misplaced obligation,” Tim hissed, angry and tired and hurting, always hurting. “Maybe, just maybe, I didn’t want to give myself the delusion that, hey, Bruce might like me beyond my abilities to punch people in the face.” He put a pale finger into Damian’s face. “Because I knew, even then, that some other kid was going to come along, some new Robin who was smarter, better and actually belonged in this crazy world.”

Tim drew back, turning away from Damian because things were pouring out of his mouth and he couldn’t stop. His vision was starting to water and he had to close his eyes to preserve that small bit of dignity he had left.

“Jason calls me the Replacement and, I get it, I’m fine with that. But after all I’d sacrificed for this town, for this team, I just didn’t want to put myself in a position where I’d be accepted only to lose it all when someone new came along. And look, barely 3 months after I finally gave into Bruce and let him legally adopt me, you…” He trails off and pointedly does not look at Damian’s Robin costume. It's hanging prominently next to Bruce’s suit where, once upon a time, Tim had hung his costume. He wipes at his nose as it started dribbling. “Whatever, you’re right. I’m terrible and everyone would be better off without me. I don’t even care what you think anymore, just leave me alone.” He said, stalking off. He walked away so fast and closed his ears to any snide comments Damian might have made. Because of this, he doesn’t hear Damian’s quiet, sincere little whisper.

“No, it’s not like that.” But of course Tim was already gone and Damian, well, he had a few things to think about before he confronted the older teen again. Maybe after he had a long discussion with his father regarding Tim’s placement within this family.

KNB x NBA

 Ok, I’m just going to throw a wild card out here and analyze the current placement of Kurobasu. Normally, I was expecting the choices to be based on colour or personality, but when Akashi came out I was completely thrown off. I think there is a clear pattern for why they were placed on this teams though.

My theory is they’re being placed into the teams where the greatest NBA legends are born (because they are the GOM so the teams have to be legendary too??). BUT! It’s more than just aesthetics! (I’m sorry Akashi, but the yellow jersey isn’t your color :-/ ) I think the GOM-Legend matchup is more on their playing styles!

So they’re not totally random! Then again, I could be overthinking things. If I am, this is probably a short rant of an obsessed KNB fan ^u^?

ANYWAY, Here’s the roster so far:

1. Kagami - Chicago Bulls
Michael freaking Jordan started from the Chicago Bulls. Kagami wears Jordans.
Also, have you seen this man jump? There’s a reason why Mike’s #1. He can jump crazy high and his drive to become the best is what put him at. the. top.
Michael Jordan wasn’t only amazing in terms of offense, his size allowed him to be a great defender too. 


2. Kuroko - San Antonio Spurs

Have you guys heard of Tim Duncan? No? Well let me introduce you to the man Shaquille O’Neal called “The Big Fundamental” and the one who placed the Spurs on the map. Let me tell you that name wasn’t born without a reason.
He plays similarly to Kuroko - in the sense that his plays are more quiet and a little “vanilla” unlike the other more flashy legends. He lacked a “style” in a sense, but not having one was his style! His style was consistent and amazingly persistent - often perceived as “boring” by some, but it was perfect for masking his individuality on the court. No one could pinpoint just Duncan. He had a very sneaky playing style - amazing footwork that allowed him to dance around his opponents. Literally, he was the perfect shadow.


3. Midorima - Boston Celtics
OK, first things first: makes sense because of two things: GREEN EVERYWHERE and the symbol is the leprechaun, a symbol of good luck!

Next, other than this lining up perfectly, let me tell you folks about Larry Bird, one of the greatest legends of all time (my idol tbh and a legend alongside Magic Johnson). Larry Bird is well known for having one of the quickest shot releases of all time. His shots could go past any defender. By the time they saw him shoot, the ball had already left his hands. Let me say again, he is one of the greatest shooters of all time.

Why not Curry and his amazing three pointers? Stephen Curry is only 6′3″! Larry Bird had a build that towers at 6′9″, he nailed the shots each time, and he’s in green too. Go figure. (There are other great Celtics like Paul Pierce or Bill Russell but I love Larry Bird OK)

4. Akashi - LA Lakers
Why not Sacramento Kings or a team that’s totally red? I thought he would be because Kings = Emperor or something. But, this makes more sense. The LA Lakers had several legends but I think the key player here is Magic Johnson. Johnson is one of the greatest Point Guards of All time and is a name that runs in every basketball nut’s household. He wasn’t just incredibly skilled, he made the plays that brought the trophy home. He virtually improved all the players around with each pass or move. Each pass and set was calculated - surprising many of his opponents! In a way, his plays brought a little magic to the court, hence the name. He was one of the few players in all of history who could not only play all roles, but DOMINATE EACH ONE. He was THE PLAYMAKER, THE MASTERMIND, THE KING ON THE COURT. If you’re looking for a player with irl Emperor’s Eye, Magic Johnson is the player with that exact ability.

Also, he and Larry Bird’s rivalry is one of the greatest in NBA history too! (Like the competitiveness between Akashi and Midorima)

Unrevealed so far and my predictions:
Murasakibara -
Houston Rockets (Possibly Yao Ming)
<3 Kise <3 - Golden State Warriors (Possibly Stephen Curry)
Aomine - Cleveland Cavaliers/Miami Heat (Possibly Lebron James)


But these ARE JUST MY THOUGHTS AND IN NO WAY AM I A DECISION MAKER FOR WHAT THEY ACTUALLY DECIDE!  Just trying to understand why they’re in the teams they are now huhu

If y’all have any thoughts or other predictions that might be even better, i’m totally open to hearing them!! XD I’ll probably upd8 this every time they release a new one X3 or keep my thoughts to myself

"Stop being attractive for like five minutes!" With Dickie boy please!

Walking down the street to get some food shouldn’t be hard, right? Wrong. When you’re the kids of Gotham’s very own resident billionaire playboy, you have to deal with the paparazzi and crazy fans who thought that everyone in the family were some sort of royalty. So when Steph, Tim, and Dick went downtown to get lunch, they were surprised to receive immediate service despite the busy lunch rush. The waitress all but ran over to their table, twirling her hair around her finger while looking directly at Dick when she spoke “H-hi, how can I help you? I’m Lisa, but you can call me whatever you want.” “Oh, um, I’ll take the burger and fries with a lemonade, no ice please.” “Of course! What do you two want?” When she left to get their food, Tim and Steph immediately broke out into giggles as Dick had a slight blush on his face while the other two mocked him for the waitress’ introduction. “Shut up you two!”

When their food arrived, Dick found no less than half a dozen numbers under his plate, which caused him to promptly choke on his burger (the other two started choking a bit two as they started laughing at his reaction). The waitress gave Dick another flirty glance as they left the restaurant, until the trio was immediately swarmed with adoring fans who wanted selfies and autographs from Dick, who was overwhelmed with the unexpected attention he was receiving. “Stop being attractive for like five minutes, would you?!” Steph had to shout over the growing crowd of admirers around Dick as she attempted to pry him loose with Tim’s help so that they could actually leave the restaurant and go about their business. “Can’t help it, I was just born with it.” Dick shrugged as he smiled at a guy that was trying to get a selfie with him “Besides, we’re kinda famous so this is to be expected.” “And yet it’s no less annoying”

Good Lord Damian with the Titan slaying tech would be the scariest thing in all of Gotham! He'd probably end up inspiring some sort of cryptid legend where people are wondering if some scary tiny monster is zipping through the night as Batman's familiar (as if he wasn't scary enough).

I just want to know Bruce reaction to his sword-chopping son being a flying-sword-chopper chasing after Gotham’s Villains from building to building and making them search for a place to hide from him, all while he’s laughing at them.

Bruce: ‘Dear God…who thought him to do that?!’

Tim: *Sheepishly walk behind Bruce* ‘Well I, umm,…kinda introduced to him to an anime called Attack on Titans and-’

Bruce: ‘YOU DID WHAT?!’

Tim: ‘Don’t look at me! YOU were the one who told me I need to bond with him more!’

  • I took a break from my rigorous nap schedule to be here. And as you’ve already heard, it’s a treat for all of you too, because usually, I charge a lot for speeches like this.”
  • “Getting through these three debates with Donald has to count as a miracle, so I guess I’m up against the highest, hardest, stained glass ceiling.”
  • “I just wanna put you all in a basket of adorables.”
  • “You look so good in your tuxes, or as I refer to them, ‘formal pantsuits.’”
  • “Donald, if at any time you don’t like what I’m saying, feel free to stand up and shout ‘WRONG’ while I’m talking.”
  • “It’s amazing I’m up here after Donald. I didn’t think he’d be okay with a peaceful transition of power.”
  • “Donald, after listening to your speech, I will also enjoy listening to Mike Pence deny that you ever gave it.”
  • “Remember, if you don’t like how it turned out, it must be rigged.”
  • “People look at the Statue of Liberty and see a proud symbol […] Donald looks at the Statue of Liberty and sees a 4, maybe a 5 if she loses the torch and tablet and changes her hair.”
  • “I understand I am not known for my sense of humor. That’s why it did take a village to write these jokes.”
  • I’m not boring at all. In fact, I’m the life of every party I attend, and I’ve been to three.”
  • “When the parties get out of hand, as occasionally they do, it’s important to have a responsible chaperone who can get everyone home safely, and that is why I picked Tim Kaine to be my vice president.”
  • “You notice there is no teleprompter here tonight, which is probably smart because maybe you saw Donald dismantle his prompter the other day. And I get that. They’re hard to keep up with, and I’m sure it’s even harder when you’re translating from the original Russian.”
  • “Donald wanted me drug-tested before last night’s debate, and look, I gotta tell you, I am so flattered that Donald thought I used some sort of performance enhancer. Now actually, I did. It’s called preparation.”

  • “Whoever wins this election, the outcome will be historic. We will either have the first female president or the first president who started a Twitter war with Cher.
  • “If Donald does win, it’ll be awkward at the annual President’s Day photo, when all the former presidents gather at the White House. And not just with Bill – how is Barack gonna get past the Muslim ban?

  • “I hope you enjoyed my remarks tonight. I said ‘no’ to some jokes that I thought were over the line, but I suppose you can judge for yourself on Wikileaks in the next few days.”

One thing that makes me kind of sad is the completely different backgrounds and personalities of Tim, Kon, and Bart in the Young Justice cartoon. Don’t get me wrong, I adore the show and the new interpretations of the characters. The writers did a phenomenal job. But sometimes I can’t help but feel sad that the creators chose to go the direction that they did.

I miss 90’s Kon. I’m sad that we didn’t get Connor Kent’s sass in all its glory (though he definitely had some in the cartoon). We didn’t get to hear him call himself Peter Pan, or say “I pity the fool who mess with the s.” We didn’t really get to see him learn to accept the Luther part of his genetics. We didn’t get to see him meet Ma and Pa, or watch them integrate him into the family. He never developed his TTK.

I’m upset that we didn’t get to see Tim’s backstory. His hero worship of Batman and Robin . His ability to follow them around undetected for years. Or him being smart enough to see the way Batman was falling apart after Jason Todd’s death, and wise enough to know how to fix it. I’m upset we didn’t get to see Timothy Drakes courage when he confronted Batman to tell him he needed a Robin, and his humility when he’s shocked that Bruce chooses him. I’m sad we didn’t get to see him training with masters all over the world, or see him prove to Bruce and Dick that he is good enough and worthy of the R, again and again.

I miss the Bart Allen that grew up in a VR. The one who had to learn about danger, and how there was no reset button. The one who trained for months with Max (albeit reluctantly) to learn how to fit in in the 20th century. The one who was so smart and tried harder than anyone ever gave him credit for. Who got stuck in a time with a family who didn’t really want him, so he found and created one who did.

I guess most of all, I’m sad that we didn’t get to see the trio grow up together. Learning to trust and lean on each other as they navigated the ups and downs of the superhero life. That through all of the hardships on Earth-16, they didn’t have that unfailing, unbreakable friendship to fall back on. That through all of the tragedies the team faced, the three people who should have been standing by each other’s sides the most, barely even knew each others names.

The show is amazing and I love it, make no mistake, but sometimes I just miss my bbs..

darknghts  asked:

Lol like tbh it was so gross how tim treated damian pre n52 like ig that damian acted entitled but everyone understood why except tim. He was just some 18 y/o bullying a kid. Also like 90% of his stans sexualize gay men its so fucking gross everytime i see someone who isnt a gay or bi man call him a twink i age 10 years.

he like.. LITERALLY punched him in his red robin solo. it was the grossest thing ever. he’s 16 or whatever (i think he was an adult in his red robin solo) and damian was ten years old back then and constantly raised and groomed to be an assassin but tim is like ‘um the robin mantle should be mine’. like.. even if you read… the arc introducing damian, tim was outright a douchebag that bruce “got someone else”. i get him being a teenager and not wanting to be replaced and it probably being the writers wanting ~drama~ but it’s STILL messed up and i’m angry.

and like yeah lmao… i 100% agree. in general can we stop people that aren’t gbt men from saying twink/bear or making those stupid top/bottom jokes because that’s just fucking outright homophobic. if i don’t see another girl saying ‘tim drake is a power bottom twink xD!’ ever again, it’ll be too soon. 

Fic: Young Volcanoes

Harper finally has a date with Cassandra Cain. Which means, as a law, Tim has to go and ruin her day.

Or Bruce shows his concern in the worst ways.

Ships: Harpercass, off screen mentioned TimSteph, DickBabs, DickKori, Timtam. 

Characters: Harper and Cass centric with appearances from Dick, Jason, Tim, Bruce, Steph, and Duke. 

Notes: Based off this post (X). For @feministbatman who is an enabler. I also HC Harper as 17 and Cass as 16, for notes. We never got their ages, so I had to play guessing game. If later jossed to a weird age gap, know this is the gap I go with.

Imagine being Harley’s little sister and dating Tim.

Relationship: Family and Lover

Character: Harley Quinn ad Tim Drake

Warning: 

Gifs: Found on Google.

A/N: I have not been show Tim and Damian enough love.  

I sat on my couch reading a book with the news in the background then I turned a tapping on my window, which caused me to jump.
“Jesus Christ Tim come on!” I sighed setting my book down and opened the window.
“HI THERE LITTLE SIS!” Harley smiled and jumped into my apartment giving me a hug.
“Har what are you doing here!?” I hugged her back; sure she was a villain, but she was still my sister.
“Well, Ivy need some help, so she broke me out.” I sighed and shook my head.
“So who is this Tim?” Harley asked as she walked deeper into my apartment.
“Umm, he’s my boyfriend.”

Just You Wait Until This Is Over 


Tim has your back pushed up against his bedroom wall, kissing you like he hasn’t seen you in a month. The two of you finally have some time to yourselves and well, things got heated pretty quickly. It is obvious both of you have been waiting to get each other alone. As his hands run down your side, your communicator on your wrist starts to beep and flash red. Tim pulls away from your lips and lets out a sigh, looking disappointed. Trust this to happen when you are finally alone together. This better be important. 

“Bruce, what’s up?” You answer his call. 

“I need you and Tim to retrieve some Intel for me about Penguin. Word on the street is he is supplying thugs with weapons. I want you to find out where he is holding them.” Bruce quickly informs you on the mission. 

“Understood.” You look at Tim who slumps down onto his bed, covering his face with one hand. Bruce hung up and you walk over to Tim, extending your hand. He looks up at you and can tell you are just as disappointed as he is. “Come on, time to suit up.” He takes hold of your hand and gets up on his feet. 

**

 It took you a few hours but once you got some leads it was easy enough to track Penguin’s men down. They lead you to a building near the docks, which means they have been transporting weapons in and out of Gotham. There has to be at least twenty men inside. You and Tim watch carefully as they lift crates into the factory, confirming that this is the base of their operation. 

“How are we tackling this?” Tim turns to you for a strategy. 

“I say you go in through the back entrance and I come in through the roof. We take them by surprise and take them down fast, otherwise, we will get shot at.” You quickly devise a plan of action, sharing it with Tim who nods. 

“We’re always getting shot at.” He points out that there’s nothing new here. “Let me know when to attack.” He then says before the two of you go your separate ways. 

You grapple your way up onto the roof of the building and crouch, looking down below through the glass panels. All of them are busy unpacking the weapons, preparing them for their buyers. There is a range of different guns and explosives. Bruce was right to assign you and Tim this mission, you have to stop these weapons from reaching the streets of Gotham. Otherwise, the criminals will wreak havoc.

“Hey Timbo!” Jason yelled across the apartment. He was eating a bowl of Lucky Charms, sans marshmallows because Tim had picked them all out and eaten them yesterday, and wearing nothing but briefs and mismatching Halloween socks. “Have you seen today’s headline?”

Tim walked in, straightening his tie. “Who poisoned the water supply this time?”

“Nobody!” Jay says. He held out his phone in Tim’s direction. “Look at this!”

Tim walked over and took the phone. “Wayne Heir Courted by Mystery Beau? Who still writes like that?” They’d figured this would happen eventually. He’d have to make a media statement at some point, but until then it was business as usual, no matter how much he hated the speculation and the media circus. If the world was fawning over Tim Drake-Wayne’s new boyfriend, it wouldn’t be poking around into anything else he might be doing.

“All the best trashy newspapers. There’s a shaky picture of me from a distance and everything.” He lifted his bowl and loudly slurped the rest of the milk. “Last time I got into the gossip pages I had to die.” He grinned. “This is much more fun.”

Tim rolled his eyes. “You’re incorrigible.”

“It’s why you love me.”

“Well yeah. See you after work?” Tim leaned in for a kiss.

“Have fun. Try not to snap and stab some old rich dude. Or at least take a video if you do.”

“Shut up!” Tim called, grinning, as he ran out the door.

Work was boring. Except his phone buzzed periodically through the day, each time a new Buzzfeed article from Jason.

“15 People Who Might Be Dating Tim Drake”

“20 People Who Are Definitely Not Dating Tim Drake”

“10 Reasons You Wish You Were Tim Drake’s Mystery Date”

“25 Reasons Tim Drake Is the Queer Icon Gotham Deserves”

“You should pick me up from work,” Tim sends at about midday. “The speculation is weirding me out. I’m dating you, not Zac Efron.”

“I bet you wish you were dating Zefron,” Jay replies.

Tim sent three texts in rapid succession.

“I do not.”

“We’re in this together J.”

“Get your head in the game.”

“I hate you,” Jason said.

“You love me and you know it”


The article was just funny at first. Jason figured that nothing would really be different. But then Tim wanted him to pick him up at work. He knew that there’d be at least a few paparazzi waiting now that the article had drawn everyone’s attention. This was it. His first real appearance as Tim’s boyfriend.

He wasn’t panicking at all, he told himself as he spread half his closet out on the bed. But he had to be good enough for Tim. He couldn’t figure out what kind of image he wanted to show the media. He couldn’t ruin Tim’s reputation.

Tim had talked to him at one point about their plan for when the media found out. Kind of. He said it would happen when it happened, and that their relationship was the one thing he didn’t want to have to lie about. Except for the part where Jason was legally dead, but they couldn’t really work around that one.

“You should pick me up at work.” Jason had reread the text a dozen times. That was no guidance whatsoever.

A suit. He should probably wear a suit. Be the put-together boyfriend Tim deserved. He probably owned a suit? No right, he did. He had one from going undercover. It looked almost okay after he ironed it, especially once he stole a tie from Tim’s side of the closet.

He couldn’t ask Tim for advice. He was trusting him to get this right. He had to get this right.

Jay showed up at Wayne Enterprises a few minutes before Tim got off, hands balled tightly in his pockets. He’d been to Tim’s office, but only after it was closed.

“I’m here for Tim Wayne?” he said to Tim’s secretary.

“Do you have an appointment?” the secretary asked.

“I, um.” Jason nearly swore, but cut himself off. He was here to make a good impression. “I’m his…”

Tim stepped out of his office. “He’s my boyfriend.”

Jason’s face lit up. Tim had said that before, but never to anyone outside the family. Definitely no one at work. Tim took his hand as they headed towards the elevator.

“You didn’t have to dress up,” Tim murmured once the doors closed.

“But the media will be here.”

“I said that I didn’t want to lie.” He squeezed Jason’s hand. “That means I don’t want you to have to either.”

“Then what do I do?”

“Just be you, okay?”

Jason nodded. “Okay.”

They stepped out of the elevator and walked through the lobby.

“You sure you want me to be myself?” Jason asked.

“Yeah,” Tim said. He looked at Jason and smiled. Jason grinned as they stepped through the door.

Cameras began flashing almost instantly. Jason pulled Tim close, wrapped one arm around him, and dipped him. Tim grinned up at him and his breath caught in his throat.

In one movement, Jason pressed his lips to Tim’s and flipped off the paparazzi with his free hand. Tim laughed when Jason finally pulled away.

“You know they can’t sell the pictures if I’m giving them the finger?” Jason whispered.

“I love you,” Tim said, grabbing his tie and pulling him down for another kiss.
