Summary: Jay’s musings on the little demon.

He’s the fucking mini-Bruce I swear. I mean Timmy got the detective shit and Dickie can brood like the god of Bats but D...

I guess he got the genes and all but it’s that look he gets, all serious and shit. The way he watched Dickie, Tim and Steph fool around, like he’s try’n to work out the mechanics of the game. Like there some set of rules that’ll make it all make sense.

That’s a Bat’s job, not Robin. Ok, we were all fucked up in our own ways – Dickie was a orphaned stray, I was a violent little fuck (still am when I need to be), Tim was a messed up stalker and Steph just wanted a daddy she could impress. But we were all kids you know? We fooled around and screwed up and bounced back but D...

The brat never really got to be a kid. Talia, Ra’s, fuck even Bruce; they made him an adult before he had a chance to grow up. Poor little bastard.

And then I catch him curled up in the corner with his comics and cookie crumbs all down his shirt and I can see the kid D should be.

Robins are meant to smile and laugh and play. And the little demon’s no exception.

The image of D in the corner with comics and cookie crumbs is adorable and heartbreaking given the rest of the ficlet.

it's sweet isn't it? He'd scowl like Bruce if he knew Jay saw him like that though.

Awwww.... *heart melts*

Even though I'm not much for the foul language use, it is in character for Jay, and I love the introspective he has on his youngest brother. It makes me wonder if Jay is the only one that views him as 'young'.

Also, this is the Jay I want to write for a one-shot in your alternate universe: all dark, brooding but understanding and protective of those closest to him at the same time. I'll email you this weekend about the idea to see if you can help me develop up it a bit and to see if it is really doable.

Thank you so much for sharing this with us. :)

the language seemed appropriate for Jay, it's the way he thinks.

oh no, Jay isn't the only one who sees D and the baby of the family. There are definitely other issues there too.

Please do drop me a line, I'd love to bounce ideas with you. I look forward to it.

Thanks and I'm glad you enjoyed it.

He'd love you for that (even if he'd never admit it..)
