No New Friends

(Request: @sweetxchains Jason Todd + #1 (from the list), please? :3)

The anger in you was indescribable and the only thing you could do was let the tears fall. Jason stood there, looking at the ground as if it was the most creative thing in the world. 

“Don’t…don’t cry.” he mumbled. The nerve of this guy. He rubbed the back of his neck, nervously. He just told you that he had to stop seeing you so often. He had met this girl over two weeks ago. 

That didn’t seem to stop him from the touches, the kisses, the bites. He would whisper promises to you as you fell asleep in his arms after late nights. Now he wants to just stop everything.

“Don’t cry?! Jason, you are-gosh!” you groaned in frustration.

“What are you so worked up about? We can still be friends and it’s not like i’m your only friend.” Jason tried to justify. He looked at the time, he had to meet the other girl. Now though, you were the other girl.

“Are you fucking kidding me? We’re not just friends and you fucking know it.” you stabbed his chest with your finger. “Friends don’t kiss. Friends don’t have sex with each other. Friends don’t promise to be with you forever and love you like you love me.” your voice broke towards the end. 

Jason grabbed your wrist and let it go. “We..we wouldn’t have worked out y/n. I don’t know what else to tell you.” he sighed. “I..I have to go now.”

“Bullshit. I know you better than anyone else, Jason! I know you and this…this isn’t you.” You wanted to block the door so he couldn’t leave. It would be to no avail but it was a fight.

“Exactly! You know everything about me. I can’t have you this close. What’s happening is not what you think. There are things I have to do and I can’t have you in the way.”  Jason tried his way of explaining. He moved to the door and opened it. 

“What am I supposed to do?” You asked sadly. Nothing he was saying made sense. 

Jason turned to look at you. “Please…just move on.”

[Diane walks in. There are hundreds of Make-Your-Own-Plane-Kits stacked on top of each other. Each kit reads: “No I said I’d like to make a complaint do not send me those kits why would you even sell kits like that it’s 2016 this is the last time I’ll be calling you goodbye.”]

I thought it was cute, this flashback to baby Jason with a cold and Daddybats staying in. How could it be anything but cute? HOw could this image possibly hurt me

But DC found a way

I should never underestimate the ability for something Jaybird related to cause me pain

What prompted this flashback? The Red Hood, Jason Todd, had to blah blah blah, plot plot plot, leave a memory with a dude in order to go somewhere, and the guy promised to give the memory back afterward.

The dude didn’t specify which memory. There was no criteria. The dude waved his hand and mystic stuff happened

Exact words: “most cherished memory”

*DYing whale noises*

Kori’s was when she rebelled against an alien guard who enslaved her– very powerful, very moving, god I love Kori

Roy’s was something with Killer Croc, I think it was supposed to be him picking himself up after hitting rock bottom, regaining the will to live or something

BUT JASON’S WAS THIS NONDESCRIPT TIME WITH BRUCE WHEN HE HAD A COLD AND COULDN’T GO ON PATROL, SO BRUCE TOOK THE SUIT OFF AND THEY STAYED IN AND CUDDLED AND WATCHED DUMB MOVIES ON THE COUCH HE WAS HAPPY

and as I type this i realize that he was sick, and vulnerable, but he was safe and warm and loved. Bruce was taking care of him. Bruce cared about him, and– as we get into the metaphorical and the underneath the underneath– Bruce picked Jason over patrol, love for his son over being the batman, oh my god, pain within pain

fuck just. In the middle of a comic DC is like, here, friendly reminder that Jason’s happiest memory is this one time with Bruce before he was MURDERED where he was safe and loved

because fuck you, that’s why

Such insight. To Jaybird. And his feelings. Now we know that about him. His most precious memory. Just fuk me up. Fuck me up. If Jason had a patronus, we don’t know what animal it would be but we sure as fuck no what happy memory he would use, his happiest oh my god DC why would you do this to me

When you see his flashback, you realize he did have a shitty childhood and its deep in his subconscious. Interesting how even after he’s incredibly rich and famous that not much has changed.

Also love how they used watercolor for this flashback thing. A lot of the characters if you look closely like Bojack and Mr. Peanutbutter are actually watercolor and not one solid color. 

Reasons I will never get over the diner scene in the last episode of DGHDA

1. Todd and Dirk sitting extremely close together because they are so comfortable with each other now

2. Farah having faith in Dirk and investing in his agency

3. Dirk being completely bowled over by this even though he’s been loudly insisting everyone would join his detective agency for the whole season

4. Dirk then trying to recover from his surprise at having two new friends/colleagues who like him and believe in him, trying to play it cool even though he’s tragically bad at it

5. Todd and Dirk finishing each other’s freaking sentences oh my god

6. “So sane we’re boring”

7. Todd and Farah, the neurotic, affection-starved worrywarts of the show LAUGHING and having a good time with Dirk

8. Dirk wearing the Mexican Funeral t-shirt under his fucking yellow jacket because Todd PICKED OUT THAT FUCKING OUTFIT FOR HIM

9. Farah taking a chance on life and her weird new friends, embracing the weird, you go Farah

10. Dirk being a ball of sunshine and finally having Todd join in his laughter instead of just staring at him with the wide, angry eyes of emotional constipation

11. Did I mention they literally finish each other’s sentences

I mean man, what a great final ending wrap-up scene after which literally nothing happened

Jason Todd Headcanons

1) Jason and Damian are probably the closest of the brothers.

2) They both participate in pranking the family. Replacing the cream in oreos with toothpaste and then filling up the empty tubes with peanut butter.

3) When one gets in trouble, so does the other.

4) Jason and Damian love horror movies.

5) Damian won’t admit it, but he does get scared from time to time.

6) It usually ends with Damian sneaking into Jason’s bed at night and waking up the next morning to find Jason hugging him.

7) Jason doesn’t mention anything since when they get flashbacks/nightmares from when they died they usually find each other.

8) When winter starts, there are competitions every single day.

9) Full out fortress and snowball wars ensue. Armies of snowmen can be seen from virtually every window in the manor. Sled trails are on every hill.

10) Alfred stitches up all the wounds from their snowball fights.

11) Jason and Damian settle down at the end of these days with a cup of hot cocoa in one hand, snuggled up on the couch in dozens of blankets, fire blazing, and a horror film playing.

12) Jason’s motto is, “Any season’s horror season.”

13) They use the cold as an excuse to sleep on the couch together. Jason’s hulking body mass encompasses Damian ti the point of where you can’t see him.

14) They’re both hardcore rollercoaster fans.

15) They often go on trips around the country to amusement parks. Cotton Candy is a must.

16) Last, but not least, Jason is constantly smiling in Damian’s presence.
