30 DAYS OF DC
↳ 5. Favorite sidekick – Robin
"It's armchair psychology at best, lad, but as much as he would probably deny it -- I believe Master Bruce is almost as obsessed about family as he is about preventing crime."
you taught me the courage of stars before you left. how light carries on endlessly, even after death. with shortness of breath, you explained the infinite. how rare and beautiful it is to even exist. i couldn’t help but ask for you to say it all again. i tried to write it down but i could never find a pen. i’d give anything to hear you say it one more time. how the universe was made just to be seen by my eyes.
rows of houses sound asleep, only street lights notice me. i am desperate, if nothing else, in a holding pattern to find myself. i talk in circles, i talk in circles. i watch for signals, for a clue. how to feel different, how to feel new, like science fiction bending truth.

"the next crystal-clear thing i do remember was…bruce wayne. my mother and father dead. my aunt and cousin dead. my uncle alive but paralyzed for the rest of his life. the only living family member i had… was unable to take care of me. bruce wayne came to my rescue and let me be part of his family. bruce went through the same trauma in his life. i guess he saw in me what happened to him. we worked together. we trained together. together we found zucco and brought him to justice. and robin was born!”
I'm saving up all my strength for when I finally fail at keeping you safe. when my last friend should leave me. It's alright. easy.
You can totally tell I did not give a damn about the blanket.
