I obsess over little things.
The Dark Knight Rises was nowhere near a perfect movie but it cleared the board and actually left things in an interesting place with plenty of uncharted territory to be explored by someone else. So… someone else decided to explore it. In the year after Batman’s demise, Gotham has fallen back into the cycle of escalation between her heroes and the colorful costumed villains.
But when the mysterious Red Hood hits the scene, it’s up to John Blake in his new costumed persona to work with a certain young cop to figure out his next move. We probably won’t be getting a follow-up to this given the cease and desist order Warner Bros. smacked on these guys but it doesn’t diminish the quality of the fan-film.
in other words, so good they got a cease and desist.

Help me? It’s…it’s too late for me, grayson. It was always too late for me, don’t you get it? I tried really hard to be what batman wanted me to be—which was you. But this world, this dirty, twisted, cruel and ugly dungheap had other plans for me. And it’s not done yet.
He woke up ambiguously. “Hmm,” he seemed to say as he looked warily around him. Time for another day of swords or drugs or making business, whatever his job was.
He lit seventeen cigarettes, because who the fuck cared. “I’m a man,” he announced to the room. “I’m a goddamn man and sometimes I have to make the tough decisions that no one asked me to make and my jaw looks like a shovel and I have an important job, so fuck you,” just in case someone was listening.
I spent a long time thinking about what Red Hood and Batgirl/Black Bat’s relationship could have been like if they met before the reboot. And after doing a lot of readings (yes I have dozens of batbooks all over my bed. Sue me.) I came to the conclusion that those two foil each other more than any other member of the batfamily. Because Cassandra is the one went from assassin to hero while Jason went from a hero to assassin.
The similarities are also worth noting here; they both have a complicated with their father(s). And while they no longer follow their fathers’ ideology, the love is still there. Plus they have closer ties to the Al Ghul family. Talia financed Jason’s global training while Ra’s hired David to create the perfect killer, leading to Cass’s birth and upbringing. Also on Cass’s final journey as Batgirl, she searched for her biological mother, was indirectly killed by her, and was later resurrected by the lazarus pit. In the end, she left her mantle behind. Does that sound familiar to anyone?
If they were to meet, I don’t think they’d like each other at all. Jason would see in her the kind of person he used to be (compassionate, optimistic) while Cass would see the kind of person she could become if she’s not careful (heartless, morally ambiguous). They’d both see aspects of themselves they’re nowhere near ready to face and would definitely clash several times. On top of that, Cass wouldn’t take well to Jason picking on Tim.
Basically their dynamic would be like Batman and Catwoman: A love-and-hate relationship added with sexual tension. It would take a very long time for them to even acknowledge the kinship they have.
Anonymous asked you: hi could you maybe write a jasontim AU, where Tim is in a wheelchair and works as a telephone operator? one day he gets jason on the line, who has so problems with a computer o/w and jason flirts and starts asking for tim everytime he has problems. and tim flirts too but doesn’t tell him about the wheelchair and yeah, can you work with that?
Notes: This is an old old old prompt that I’ve been sitting on for a long time. I’m not taking more prompts right now, but I’m done with it, so I’m finally posting. I am so sorry this has taken me so long, Anon. I don’t know if you’re still following me, as I’ve switched blogs, but I finally finished this, at almost 3000 words. I hope that makes up for the wait!
Excerpt: Tim makes a show of sighing and frowning up at her, “I don’t know, Steph. I’m only about to beat the computer at solitaire for the thousandth time.”
This is great and so incredibly sweet. Lit major!Jason is one of the best things that fandom has come up with weehhhh thank you for sharing <3
It’s payback time, Jay. XD
Tim gets his revenge for this.
Been under a lot of stress lately. This was cathartic. ^^
i bet dick cracks all his joints sO LOUD like his fingers and back and knees and shoulders and especially his toes
and most of the time he does it just to creep out his batsibs it’s rly gross like he just sprawls out on the sofa and props his bare feet on the coffee table and crACK crack poP
jason’s totally not grossed out, he thinks it’s awesome, and takes the opportunity to tell dick he’s looking forward to growing old, too, so he can make the same noises.
Adding insult to injury. lol
Drew this last May for Kat’s askjaytim blog. I think the question was how these two goofballs react when the other is injured. ^^’
