…Oh, Cass, I’m sorry.

You’re still coming over, right?

He’s not invited.

you know whats funny 

babs has this huge collection of toys, action figures and shit and then these weirdo dolls she makes herself, i dont know if she does anything with them even theyre always in the same place when i go over 

i asked her once what they were for and she didnt answer because i think at the time we were fending off some bogeys who decided to pay her a visit, but i dont remember for sure

she gets mean when other people touch them though 

i bet she acts scenes out with them and then puts them back in the exact same spot so no one will guess

I think sometimes you forget that I know where you live.

But since you did ask before we were rudely interrupted - have I mentioned enough how much I miss my old security system - they’re tokens, I guess. Memories.

The first one I made was Batgirl. After I accepted I couldn’t be her anymore, I wanted to - I wanted a part of her I could still hold on to, that I could always look at and remember. I wanted to create something, instead of remembering what was destroyed.

I wasn’t - sad when I made her. That was…

I started making others and now it’s kind of a habit. It’s - soothing, I guess.

I’ve been collecting action figures for ages, it’s just a bit more personal nowadays.

Now behave, or I’ll put your plushies in embarrassing positions.

dont pretend you dont already

Yeah, but I don’t tape it.

loving someone doesn’t make it okay to hurt them. it’s never okay to hurt people and saying that bruce loves you guys isn’t a fucking excuse for how he treats you.

because i dont know if you’ve noticed but he treats you like shit

and i dont care if he’s bad at emotions and bad at talking because thats ALSO NOT A FUCKING EXCUSE TO HURT PEOPLE

i’ve seen him treat tim like shit. i’ve seen him treat cass like shit. and now it seems to be damian’s turn to be subjected to this bullshit fucking routine of being held up to impossible standards. because they’re impossible. i hate to break it to you all but NONE of you are going to be as perfect as bruce wants because even he’s not perfect enough.

and maybe tim’s getting there. but jesus have you seen what it’s doing to him? sometimes i don’t even fucking recognize you, tim, and it’s because you turned into a carbon copy of bruce and you told me you never wanted that. 

he fucking pits you against each other. thats not how parents should work, and my experience isn’t exactly broad here but i KNOW you shouldn’t make your children compete for your attention. you shouldn’t make them feel like shit, like theyre not good enough, and then hand them out tiny scraps of affection or praise so that they don’t abandon you. so that they can’t hate you because “maybe you do love them” when they SHOULD hate you. guys you should be so fucking mad at bruce for the way he treats you. and he should be held fucking accountable.

i wanted to put this nicely but i cant when he’s so awful to people i care about.

You know what? I love Bruce. I know he loves all of you.

But Kon is right.

Bruce has been getting worse for years now. He hasn’t known how to be a father for a damn long time.

Damian, I don’t know what he did. But it’s because of him, not you. His issues. His barriers. You are a good kid, and a good son, and a good Robin. All of you were.

He remembers that, Jason. He just doesn’t want to. He can’t confront his own emotions, he can’t confront the possibility that maybe you have a point.

Steph, I know you were never his daughter. But you were his partner. And you were a damn good one and he would have seen that if he didn’t have his head up his ass. He admitted to me, you know, that he treated you unfairly. He didn’t have the courage to say it to you.

Tim - god, Tim. I miss you.

Cass…I know you love him. I know you know him, more than any of us. You see what’s there inside. But that’s different from what he shows the world. What he does to other people.

You saw that yourself, when he separated you from Kon, when he tore Batgirl from you the first time instead of just talking to you, when he - god, Cass, I can go on.

He never wanted to hurt you but he did and his intentions do not make it all right.

i really don’t like it when people make me feel like i’m not- not good enough just because i’m not very smart. i don’t know why someone’s worth has to judged on whether or not they’re smart. 

i know i’m not very smart and that’s okay most of the time because i try not to care about it, i know i’m a good person or at least i’m trying to be but sometimes it makes me feel like shit when someone decides i’m not worth their time or that my opinions don’t matter because i’m not clever and i don’t know a lot of big words or stuff like that.

maybe i should try harder. both my “parents” were smart so if i tried harder i should be too, right? but I don’t know why i have to. and it feels like giving in to people’s shitty judgements or like i’m only pretending to be smart and i don’t. i don’t know.

i can’t be the only person that feels like this and i’m pretty confident most of the time so its not too bad but i feel really bad for people who aren’t. like if they feel like they’re not good enough because they’re not very clever and i wish there was something i could do. but i don’t think i can just punch something to make this problem go away.

schools bullshit, people dont talk about it enough but being bad at it doesnt mean youre not smart, the only reason i ever did ok in school was because babs tutored me and i really didnt make that easy for her, it was all because shes stubborn and figured out that the way youre supposed to teach kids didnt work for me

so, what, im stupid? sure, but im fluent in a bunch of languages, i know a shitton about forensic science and criminology, i can do pretty much anything with cars and motorcycles if i have enough time and money for parts, i know a decent amount of useful hacking shit, that has nothing to do with school. but its still messed up to judge me as a person because of that shit, im not a good person, that has nothing to do with how well i did on fuckin math tests before i died and it stopped mattering, or how much shit i know now even

anyway teachers treat kids like me like shit, and poor kids and the kids who arent white, and kids with shitty parents, theyre all written off, and if you get written off you probably wont graduate and people think its something you did, that youre incompetent or youre lazy. and its real fucking special because rich white kids get a free pass if daddy complains, ive seen it, it couldve been me getting it if id been adopted by any other rich guy

so 

youre right

its bullshit

…You didn’t make it hard, Jay. Well, all right, sometimes you did, but teaching you was -

It’s a big reason I’m a teacher now.

And more of us should realise there is no one right way to teach. Kids have their own strengths and weaknesses, determined by all sorts of factors that we need to take into account.

School should be a sanctuary from the bigotry and abuse children face, not a perpetrator of it. 

And no one should ever be condemned for struggling with it, or disliking it, or choosing something else. They’re not failing anyone. They’re certainly not any lesser than anyone else.

flawedgem liked your post: tjdrake: Look, I seriously don’t need any…

help

I don’t think you’re doing too badly, Kon, considering.

Tim, Jason, neither of you are acting all that rational right now. You don’t tend to, when it comes to each other.

Maybe, instead of constantly doing this dance, you should settle down and actually talk to each other. Sincerely. No mocking. No fronting.

I will referee you if I have to.
