All The RobinsA/N: Instead of a longer drabble, there are sixteen mini-drabbles that are less than four hundred words. (Two are 399 words, haha.) One for each of the five Robins, ten for each pair of Robins (not necessarily romantic), and one bonus drabble at the end. Some of the single drabbles mention a second Robin, but it centers on just one of them. Likewise, some of the pairing drabbles have a third snuck in there, but they're only minor. If this is confusing, just go and read them.All The Robins3 years ago in General Fiction More Like This

One of the things Bruce Wayne had vowed to do when he became the Batman, was to prevent any more children from losing their parents. He already failed to do that with young Dick Grayson, but he made up for it by taking him in, loving him as if he were his own flesh and blood son, and further training him to become Robin, The Boy Wonder. Now he was failing once again when a string of murders were occurring. The only witnesses were small children who said that their “friend”, a clown, had killed their parents.
After doing much detective work and investigation, all fingers were pointed towards their first and only suspect: The Joker. Batman and Robin had spent a good portion of their evening chasing after the murderous psychopath—whom that same evening Joker decided that along with murdering a child’s parents would also steal the family’s important documents, which now caused the crime fighting pair to follow him into a closed ca

Rating: T for Jay's mouth.
Summary: Dick chose Damian as his Robin, and Tim feels hurt. Tim has a run-in with Jason and finally can empathize with why Jason calls him "Replacement."
A/N: My take on Timmy's feelings about Damian and Dick as the Dynamic Duo. And I added some cute moments between Jay and Tim. This is before Tim became Red Robin.
Timothy Drake-Wayne was miserable. This feeling wasn't uncommon for him, but usually he could keep it at bay. Now, the emotion hit him full force, overwhelming him. Never had he felt so unwanted and alone. Someone else had become Robin. Batman's partner was no longer Tim Drake. Perhaps it was because Batman was no longer Bruce Wayne, or perhaps it was because the new Robin was Bruce Wayne's biological son. No matter what it was, Tim wasn't <

"And so you shall go out into the world, changing each other's lives-"
This speech was killing more brain cells than the Law Enforcement Academy had filled. Easily. All four years, down the tube in one fell swoop. I checked my watch and sighed in defeat. This graduation thing that we had been leading up to since we hit preschool was turning out to be taking about that much time to be done with. After about ten long minutes...
"Congratulations, class of 2011!"
A great shout rose from the crowd as hundreds of caps were thrown in the air. I myself let out a very un lady-like shriek and jet out of my uncomfortable metal seat faster than you could say pure genius. No living family to tow me down, no friends to hold me back!

I cruised down the streets in the coming dawn, simply sightseeing the place I had wanted to move to since I had first enrolled in the Academy. I had driven right through the night and by this time all the businesses and shops would be getting ready to open, but right now I needed an apartment.
I checked my wallet to see what was left in my savings after a full night of buying Slim Jim's. I had about two hundred left so I needed to find a job fast plus a cheap apartment for the time being.
I drove about for another half an hour or so until I looked at the clock and my hair didn't stand on end at the time. Eight thirty was good enough that I didn't wake people up.
I drove down to around where I thought the cheaper apartments would be. Another description would be the dingy side of the city but at the time I figured what the hell. Even if I could catch AIDS from some of the bed sheets

Finally! A man's show I can watch without feeling guilty for even watching one episode!
Many of you may recall a few months back, I reviewed an episode of the popular TV show "My Little Pony Friendship is Magic" and gave it a fair critique that wasn't as scathing as I originally thought on the show. But I still chose to ignore it and go on my daily life of thinking about the craft of cinema and other unimportant crap. But since January, I really wanted to tackle another show from my youth that I could analyze and thanks to Netflix, i finally can.
Before we touch on the show, let's look at the history leading up to this short-lived show.
