. HYYY FELLAS
May i ask for some reverse batfam headcanon for dick pleaasseee
Ps i didnt log in trumblr for a while do the panini discourse thing came back ?
fuck this ask was sent so fuckin long ago i'm so sorry. no, the panini discourse didn't come back thank god, Shadow just made a brief blog cameo
And although I don't have specific hcs for reverse Dick, I've been itching to share how he meets Damian bc that's a whole can of worms that no one has opened yet. Cowards
Okay so i may have mentioned that when Dick is taken in by Bruce, Damian and Steph are still thought dead by the family. So he enters a grieving household with ghosts in the pictures lining the walls. Half of the family is barely even around.
So, understandably, Dick is not having a good time.
Jason tries his best to act like everything is fine for Dick, and Duke does the same when he's at the manor, but it always seems to fall flat. Bruce is also trying to be a good foster parent, but he's barely holding himself together as is.
Dick also isn't in on the big secret. It's pretty easy to keep him in the dark since Jason is taking a break from vigilantism at this point in time. Not permanently, though he intended it to be.
But Jason accidentally gets involved with a case (something about a spy organization or whatever) that his Outlaws friends are working on and need his help with. He goes with them, gets roped into a battle in Bludhaven, and briefly sees a very familiar face.
Jason goes home absolutely convinced that Damian is alive. Well, mostly convinced. He has a hunch. He ends up telling Tim and Maya. And guess who overhears that lovely conversation!!! That's right, Dick!
Of course, his eight year old brain immediately goes 'okay so if i go to Bludhaven find Damian and bring him back everyone will be happy'. So one night he sneaks out of the manor, somehow avoids getting caught, and buses his way to Bludhaven. Despite only having a picture of Damian. And not knowing anything about him beyond the few stories Dick has been told.
Long story short, Dick finds Damian, but he doesn't know Damian is Damian. To him, Agent 37 is helping him find Damian as a side project whenever Dick sneaks over to Bludhaven. It takes a while for Dick to figure the truth out, as on top of a mask that hides half his face Damian has the implant that makes his face all swirly. That, and Damian is still figuring his own shit out and slowly recovering his memories so he doesn't tell Dick
But yeah when Damian is moving on from Bludhaven, Dick decides to go with him. And Damian tries to leave without him, he really does, but Dick manages to sneak onto the plane Damian is on and doesn't reveal himself until they're 30 thousand feet in the air. In the end, Damian doesn't have a choice.
I'm gonna cut it there...for now...
