Dick, what is your life
I never noticed this before, but look at the motion lines. He’s shaking. ;A;

Now, I know…. I’ve already done a bat-family fan fiction this week — but to be fair it is the fandom I have read the most in fan fiction recently. And yes, I also know that I might have already talked about this particular author before (when I was gushing about my adoration for robins in general) but really she was good then, she’s still good now. And this is a highlight of a particular tale - so here it is… Just Desserts by JT on fyeahbatmanandrobin tumblr.
The number of times that I have read this story out loud could be considered strange. But that is the delight in JT’s stories in particular, and maybe (though I haven’t ventured much) in tumblr fan fiction. It’s shorter than the other stuff I’ve read (and yes, I am inclined to longer compositions) so it’s a quicker read. But Just Desserts isn’t just shorter, it’s also has a particular character voice- writing style - that inspires it’s reading out loud. It’s almost as if this fan fiction wants to be presented, almost somewhat performed.
The story begins with Damian Wayne and Tim Drake, and moves along the activities mostly from Damian’s perspective. A hidden 10-year-old in an awkwardly formal and violently trained assassin. Damian reacts with all of his emotions (child and trained killer) to the unfamiliar developing relationship of Dick and Barbara. In one swoop, JT manages to capture the traditional fans (Dick and Babs) and draw in the present fans (Damian) by creating the perfect interaction for them - a dinner. I won’t tell you too much more about what happens, but I will mention that I quote this particular story a lot. It might be because I have a lot of pastries - but I always mumbled something about such strong feelings toward a pastry. Already one of the tumblr’s fan favorites, Just Desserts provides it’s audience a great laugh with just a pinch of heartfelt 10-year-old despair and brotherly concern. But believe me, read it out loud at least once to someone- it’s quite a bit of fun.
Oh, wow! This is such a generous review. I’m glad I checked my tag and came across it, because it certainly made my day. Thank you!
P.S. everything I do wants to be presented and somewhat performed

Plus Damian looks pretty cute in that bottom panel.
