The gym is Wally’s favorite place to hate. He goes, begrudgingly, because this whole fast metabolism thing isn’t going to keep up forever and he hates every single second of it.
There’s nothing fun about running on a treadmill at 10 at night after a long day in the lab. It’s boring as hell, actually, especially on days when he forgets his headphones and has to listen to the crackling gym radio that’s echoing through the space.
It’s not the running that bothers him. He loves finding that perfect pace and the adrenaline rushing through his body, the slightest strain in his muscles and the dryness in his lungs. He ran track and cross country in high school and college because that was something he could get into- the varying workouts, the comradery, the competition.
But it’s just Wally on the treadmills tonight, there’s hardly anyone in the gym at all. Most people are behind him, on the bikes or back by the weights, and there’s no one here to entertain him except for the celebrity news show that’s on the TV in front of him.
The last commission I got had me thinking about how Wally broke his arm in season 1 and how unrealistic it was that the team did not cover the cast in signatures and silly doodles. Then that got me thinking how Dick wasn’t allowed to tell the rest of the team his secret identity, but Wally knew because they were best friends. And how Dick could definitely find a way around signing his name without tipping off the rest of the team. And how he would definitely be the one to do that on a person’s cast.
Credit goes to @frecklebear for doing all the signatures on the cast because her handwriting is 100000000x better than mine.
