The Batfam's Favourite Superheros

Barbara and Steph love Black Canary, just slightly differently. Barbara just knows Dinah is the best, and there’s no other option, but Steph? That there is her icon. Black Canary is her role model, her hopes and dreams. Barbara is the good best friend type, but Steph is on some Tim Drake level stalker shit.

Dick is a hardcore Superman fan. As a smol bean he had only Superman merch, he even had one of those costumes with the blow up muscles, much to Bruce’s distress. The boy in blue will always have Dick as his number one fanboy.

Bruce idolizes Wonder Woman, and no one can say otherwise. It started as a joke with Diana but now he wears the knee high socks with the little capes on the end under his suits and all WE employees have learned not to question it. Besides, the Amazon is a strong independent woman who is too pure for the world, they can’t judge because they’re all enamoured with her too.

Jason is on a similar boat to Bruce, but he’s legally dead so not many people see him decked out in his fan wear. He has the tiara and will proudly wear it out with no shame whatsoever.

Cassandra, surprisingly, likes the Flash. He’s basically the opposite of her, speaks much too fast, and far from refrained, but they both have the same issues; communication takes conscious effort and they both hold so much power. He’s also so pure, how could anyone not love him?

Now Tim always changes his favourite hero, basically every other week, so it’s hard to pin down. Past favourites include Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Black Canary, Flash, Aquaman, and the likes.

Damian is a Nightwing fan, but don’t tell Dick. He has action figures of his brother hidden in the back of his closet. And boy does he know about the Discowing suit. Dick did not live that one down. Still hasn’t.

Duke is too sweet to outright say so, but he likes Green Lantern. Has been known to wear a Green Lantern Corps ring to school. Also may or may not have pajamas with the symbols.

Alfred will always say Batman, but Robin and Batgirl will always hold a special place in his heart.

The Batkids’ Biggest Fears

  • Dick - anything and everything involving the ocean. it’s too big and no one knows what is down there and he doesn’t trust it
  • Babs - clowns plain and simple. if she sees one she immediately goes pale and needs to be escorted to a different room
  • Jason - that someone will find his secret stash of weed that is hidden in one of his books and flush it down the toilet
  • Tim - someone finding out that the real reason he doesn’t sleep is because he has terrible nightmares and severe PTSD and everytime he falls asleep he is transported back there so he just drinks a lot of caffeine to keep his body going until he passes out then the nightmares aren’t there
  • Carrie - being kidnapped and tortured and just on the verge of death but never being killed just on the brink of death for days, weeks, months, years, etc
  • Stephanie - twins that look alike and talk in unison and have a monotone sound to voice in general
  • Duke - that he will die before he feels he has truly helped someone because that’s all he wants to do, make a difference in someone’s life (even though he already has he personally needs to feel it)
  • Damian - waking up one day and Alfred the cat and Titus don’t love him anymore or want to be around him anymore and just blatantly ignore him
  • Cass - anything involving needles to the point where if she has to have blood drawn she faints and has to squeeze Bruce’s hand when she gets shots

So we know that Damian is really good at finding out a person's desire. Maybe it was used to exploit their target back at the LoA. But lately he's been using it to give heartfelt presents. I can't help thinking that if he found out that Steph was pregnant once and put the baby up for adoption, he might search for the baby. Maybe he would take several pictures of her and make it into an album and gave it to Steph. Its a nice thought.

Ow, this really breaks my heart </3 

I miss their interactions so much and I think this would be something that 1) he would definitely do and 2) they really could bond over, given Damian’s issues with his own mother. 

I’d love for Stephanie to get to see that her baby is happy and growing up safe and loved, for her to be 100% sure that she did the best thing she could. And I’d love for Damian to realize that blood ties only count so far, and that an adopted family is just as good as any other family. 

Batfamily as things my family has said

Barbara: “If you eat that piece of bacon I swear to god this friendship is over" 

Dick: *sneaks up on unsuspecting sibling* *randomly drops and crushes said sibling with all their weight* "HUMPBACK WHALE!!!" 

Jason: "Hey come here, I have to tell you a secret. Closer. Little closer.” *sticks tongue in their ear* 

Cass: “I’m sorry but I really don’t like you and I want you to stay outside of my house or maybe just be dead and burn in the darkest pits of hell please" 

Tim: *loses battery for the remote* "WHY WON’T GOD JUST FREAKING LET ME DIE I THINK I’VE EARNED IT BY NOW" 

Stephanie: *accidentally sets fire to counter* "You know, maybe you shouldn’t play with fire anymore” “Yeah, maybe-” *lights match* “-but not today" 

Damian: "You know once a kid dared me to stick up the middle finger in kindergarten and I did and the second I did it he called the teacher and she made me sit out recess that day and this is why I have trust issues" 

Alfred: *banging pots and pans* "GET THE FRICK DOWNSTAIRS YOU PEASANTS I MADE CUPCAKES AND NEED VALIDATION ON MY BAKING ABILITIES" 

Bruce: "hOw DaRe YoU dIsReSpEct mE!!! i aM tHe KiNg Of tHiS LiViNg RoOm!!!" 

Jason: We are gathered here today-

Dick: [sobs]

Jason: To honor the life-

Damian: And death

Dick: [sobs harder]

Jason: Of Blue, someone who meant much to us all. He was family. A victim of- uhh…

Dick: [sobs some more]

Damian: This is pathetic. I’m going to my room.

Tim: Don’t be so rude! This is a funeral!

Damian: For a fish

Jason: Shut up. Both of you. Steph, start the music again.

Steph: Sure thing, lover boy.

Jason: Blue was only 3 weeks old when he was tragically taken from us

Dick: [wails]

An average day at Wayne Manor

Bruce: *sitting and reading the newspaper* 

*suddenly hears a crash and some screaming from upstairs* 

*footsteps running back and forth on the ceiling*  

Dick: Bruuuuuuce!!!!

*another crash and some muffled grunting* 

Jason: Don’t listen to him, Bruce, everything is fine!!!

*some more muffled cursing and punches*

Damian: This is all your fault, Todd!!!

Tim: For the love of god, somebody put out the fire!!!!

*more running* 

Steph: I got it!!!

*the sounds of a pipe bursting* 

*more screaming and cursing* 

Dick: Bruuuce!!! Call the fire department!!!

Tim: Screw that, call the Justice League!!! Damian’s on fire!!!

*more screaming* 

Bruce: *takes a sip of tea* I hate my life

Commissioner Gordon always carries candy and breakfast bars; his coat pockets are deep, sometimes Cass can score 2 chocolate chip breakfast bars if she gives Gordon a hug. The second Robin liked lifesavers, and oddly enough that seems to be Red Hood’s kryptonite too; the third Robin, now Red Robin, prefers chocolate so Gordon hands over a Reese’s cup in thanks for intel on who robbed that bank on Monday. Red Robin eats it while mapping out his theory for Gordon to understand, mumbling around the peanut butter chocolatey goodness. The first Robin, now going by Nightwing, is rare to see these days but Gordon still carries gummy worms in case he shows up; Spoiler swings by, hyper as always, and Gordon has already dug out a pack of Skittles and three breakfast bars. The newest Robin, little devil that he is, can be placated with a a pack of Runts that he begrudgingly shares with whatever sibling he’s on good terms with that night; Batman doesnt accept anything.

There was a time where Gordon, young and unawares, didn’t carry candy and breakfast bars; not until one night a boy was brought into the precinct, in shock and alone and grieving, clutching a bloody suit jacket way too big to be his, and Gordon poured four dollars into the vending machine for a pack of poptarts and 3 different types of candy. Anything to offer comfort and make the boy feel less alone…

Batman may not accept anything, but whenever Gordon sees Bruce he’s always tempted to ask if he still likes jawbreakers.
