#Stephanie Brown #Badass #Tim/Steph OTP #My dearest dove
Stephanie Brown’s life advice is essentially to quit bat-angsting and to just go confront the problem already.
Reasons why the reboot is sorely missing our favorite bundle of eggplant sunshine. All of this moping and grimdark and red-bat-fetish-stuff would not fly on her watch, I tell you what.
She’d say, “Bruce, stop moping about your maybe-brother. Dick, don’t worry about the fact that you were going to be a warrior for some conspiracy group, you’re here now. Babs, stop actively seeking out morally ambiguous villains, especially ones you can’t handle, to compare yourself to, most of them aren’t even ambiguous, they’re just assholes. Jason, I don’t know what to tell you… Roy and Kory, what the hell are you doing in a Batman book? And Kory stop being a mindless fanservice machine and go back to your old characterization. And Damian stop trolling everyone. Oh, and how dare you not challenge me for being the best Robin?!” Then she’d KO Damian and walk out. At least, that’s how I think it would happen.
First panel: Stephanie, with a broken leg no less, sets Tim straight about quitting the vigilante game — “So here are your marching orders, my dearest dove: Wipe your eyes. Blow your nose. Grow up. And then get yourself back to the Batcave and beg Batman not to kick you out on your all too attractive fanny.
Go! Vamoose! Move out! I can get home on my own.”
Second panel, tail end of Tim’s thoughts: “Stephanie would say ‘suck it up and deal.’ Okay, Steph. For you.”
Is it any wonder Steph is on the “Determinator” page at TV Tropes?
